  1. In the end it was just me missing the "No break" check box under Character/Positioning and Transform. It was "On" (checked). By unchecking it the behaviour of the text returned to normal. Thanks Joachim_L. Case Closed! :-)
  2. By the way, I have discovered that this only happens when I paste directly into a Publisher document. If I draw a Text Frame first it all appears normally as it should be.
  3. When pasting in some text from an email Publisher suddenly starts to behave strangely, ignoring the boundaries of the textframe. InDesign is working as expected. This is what's happening in Publisher: It behaves normally in InDesign:
  4. I am trying make a songbook in Publisher which I previously made in InDesign. The notation was initially made in Finale and the exported as a PDF-file and placed in InDesign. I want to make the same songbook in Publisher and this time I have also switched to a new notation program called Dorico. But when placing the new pdf exported from Dorico it appears with some graphic errors which never appeared in InDesign. Is this a known bug or do any of you have any suggestions? Look at the screenshots below. Here is the old pdf exported from Finale and placed in Publisher: And here is the new PDF exported from Dorico and placed in Publisher. I have drawn rings around the anomalies: And here is the same PDF as above when placed in InDesign: An exported SVG-file is coming up perfectly, so maybe that is the way to go:
  5. I am a musician and are an experienced user of the DAW program Logic Pro X. In most audio mixers, real or software based, there are two buttons that we users take for granted: a Mute-button and a Solo-button. The Mute-button turns off a particular track while a Solo-button turns of all other tracks except the one where you pressed the Solo-button. Wouldn't it be great to have this functionality in the Layers palette in Publisher? The equivalentof the Mute-button is already there in the form of the "is visible" check mark to the right of the layer name. By adding a Solo-button to the right of this you could make all the layers invisible except for the layer you "soloed". This would be a great feature when there is a lot of layers and you just want to view and work with one in particular. Please consult the screen shots I have provided, both from Logic Pro X and from Publisher: The audio mixer in Logic Pro X. Notice the M(ute) and S(olo) buttons at the bottom: Here I have muted the track "Audio 1". This would be the equivalent to make a layer invisible by removing the checkmark next to it: Here I have soloed the track "Audio 1". The other tracks are automatically muted: And here is a mockup screen shot of how it could appear in Publisher. V = Layer visibility on/off, S = Layer is soloed and the other layers not visible. Please let me hear your comments. I think this would be a great featrure!
  6. I am trying to create my own Application Swatch palette from some of the colors in a document. Some of the colors are sampled correct and some turns out darker than expected. What is the reason for this behaviour? Am I doing something wrong? Any advice? Please consult the screenshots below: Here are the colors I sampled, blue, light gray, dark gray and red: Here's the palette: Here's the dark grey sample applied to a new object (too dark): Here's the blue sample applied to a new object (too dark): Here's the light grey sample applied to a new object (correct): Here's the red sample applied to a new object (correct):
  7. This has nothing to do with how text frames are handled. It's simply about adding a % field next to the Opacity slider just like everywhere else where you can adjust the opacity. I can't imagine this is difficult to implement and to me it looks more like an oversight than a technically difficult feature to add.
  8. One of the points in using a text frame is just to avoid doing that. Makes it much more complicated than necessary to handle two objects at once.
  9. I am afraid I didn't understand that...
  10. There is no problems with adjusting the opacity for fills in text frames. The probIem is that without a % field it is impossible to be consistent when adjusting it. All I really want is a % field to be added to the right of the Opacity slider in the text frame tab just like everywhere else where you can adjust the opacity!
  11. No, that doesn't work! Dragging the opacity slider in the color panel adjusts the opacity of the whole text frame, both the text and the fill... The opacity is shown in % everywhere else than for text frames. Here is the color panel: And here it is in the Layers panel: But not for text frames. I can't see any sensible reason why not:
  12. I am afraid that doesn't help much. I need to see the percentage as I am adjusting it...
  13. Me too! Thanks for your input though...
  14. That's fine if you want to adjust the opacity of the whole layer, both text and background fill. But I just want to adjust the opacity of the fill. This is the opacity of the layer: But this is where I need to see the opacity in %:
  15. In most places in Publisher the amount of opacity is shown as a percentage except for one. When changing the opacity of a fill in a text frame there's a slider but no place (as far as I can see) to view the actual percentage of the opacity. I find this very frustrating and makes for inconsistent values when adjusting the opacity of fills in text frames. If this is a missing feature, please add it in the next upgrade!!!
