  1. @Pedrober I did mean to just export the text - keep the IDML file to import the design into APub, but extract the text (if it's possible) to Word, and then import the text back into your APub design. It all really hinges on whether the text can be extracted with footnotes successfully.
  2. Could you export the IDML text into Word? APub does accept the import of Word footnotes.
  3. Does what it says in the title. Only further comment is that it was with a two column text frame and the object was being dragged. I'm not sure whether this topic has already been noted, so it can be deleted or merged to suit.
  4. Agreed - I saw the nonsense video and assume the big announcment is for APub to become a grown-up program at last. Here's a link to the video: https://affinity.serif.com/
  5. @JohnJohn12For my "Magnificent Octopus" I have several thousand footnotes (535,000 words and counting). If you treat them as endnotes, then they can be ported over in one go. The only problem, as said previously, is that APub does not port over the footnote numbers embedded in the text.
  6. @walt.farrellis correct that the notes cannot be ported over with the Word document - neither are the footnote identifier numbers. However, clicking on any footnote and pressing Ctrl-A (All) will copy all the footnotes in one go.
  7. Likewise. I wonder if Serif understand fully the harm that this debacle is causing their reputation? David
  8. As I have mentioned before, adding endnotes is the least problematic of them all as they are collated towards the end of the chapter, section or book. The only need is to adjust the page count and numbering to accommodate the additional page(s) that the endnotes would take. But, like Trevor A's comment, adding the feature without auto-numbering makes the exercise a little pointless.
  9. I know, I used to own a software development company ... just me being a touch cynical.
  10. I was hoping that version 1.10 (surely this is v.2.0? ðŸĪŠ), just released today, might just include footnotes and endnotes, but sadly not. So do we have to wait until after v.1.99 before footnotes get included, or perhaps v.1.999 ...?
  11. @MikeTOThanks, I was aware of this. However, much of the image content is monochrome (or sepia tinted) and any colour problems are picked up through at least one proofing stage (that is, proofs from the printers).
  12. @MikeTOI tend to use PNG or TIFF (rarely JPEG) depending on usage. PNG is often far smaller as a filesize. @Old BruceFair point about having a remote drive. In fact, I have three backups - a) to a 1GB HDD via wire, b) a 256GB USB stick, c) 512GB cloud storage. Call me paranoid, but you can never tell! 😉
  13. @MikeTOThanks for the feedback. @John RostronThat's a very good point and I'll be interested in Mike's feedback. Personally, I think using linked images is the only way to go. In the main folder where I keep the images there are something like 36,000 and 101GB worth of data. Naturally, I will only be using a fraction of these, but it does demonstrate how unwieldy a book can become if the images were embedded. My project is rather mind-blowing (for me, anyway) as it's likely to be spread over five immense volumes of about 500–600pp, or ten volumes over the user-friendly 300pp each (hence my question). I've written about 460,000 words so far so it's very difficult ATM to calculate the best way forward, but I feel that sub-dividing the book into the various points in history is most pertinent. Thanks for the help, David
