  1. But they _are_ being saved! First, I draw a picture frame, set the wrap values in the dialog, and close it. Next, I draw a new picture frame, and the text does not wrap, as reported. However, if I now click the Edit Wrap Outline icon with the frame selected, the text wraps around the frame with my new values. And if I open the Show Text Wrap Settings dialog, I see the new values, and the Wrap Style I chose (the Wrap To value seems to be lost, though). Odd...
  2. Hello — new user here, just in from Quarkland. In Publisher, I want every picture frame to have a ‘runaround’ of 5 mm. So I draw a frame, call the Text Wrap dialog, set it to Square and 5 mm. Next, from the Edit menu, I select Defaults>Synchronize from selection, and Defaults>Save. I expected my next picture frame to use these values and the text to wrap, but it doesn’t work like that — I have to call the Text Wrap dialog again for each new picture. This seems to be a bug...
  3. Still exploring the interface... What does Edit>Paste Inside do? Is it undocumented?
  4. Hey Walt, I think I've looked everywhere, but I can't seem to find this function in Publisher, and I don't think it's documented either. I feel stupid. Can you help me out, please? Cheers!
  5. Okay, so this changes to a feature request... Could Remove line breaks in the TOC also remove returns (LR + CR)? Maybe it's just a Mac thing?
  6. Hmm... I probably had a return between the two lines — it is not even possible to wrap an artistic text onto two lines like a regular text frame, right? So the hidden knowledge seems to be that one has to insert a line break instead of a return. Unexpected (I never use line breaks), but mystery solved, thanks!
  7. The Artistic Text Tool in Publisher is great for making fitted headlines in a magazine. However, if a make a two-line headline (without a return), the Table of contents turns it into two entries, even if I ask it to Remove line breaks. I can insert a line break, and ask the TOC to remove line breaks, but this seems to defeat the purpose. Is this a bug?

  9. Okay — do the moderators on this forum read along and pass problems and suggestions to the developers, or should I file a bug report myself?
  10. The Character Style Palatino was just a dummy to test if it would make any difference if I had my Subhead based on No Style or on the basic text type (the problem being that the subhead still used the basic text type). In the real world, I'll need character styles e.g., to select words in foreign languages so that spelling and hyphenation use the proper dictionaries. This is the Help I was referring to, from 'Using text styles': You can also set the default override behaviour for your styles in readiness for applying the style directly from the panel. Simply deselect all text and text frames in advance, then check the above options you want enforced. When you select the text style name from the style list, the previously set override behaviour will be used on 'target' paragraphs I assumed this would do what I wanted, but I don't see anything happening... Thanks!
  11. Thanks for your quick response! Here’s an MWE, I hope. The word ‘minima’ is just ad hoc italics, ‘consequatur’ is character-styled. If I change the first paragraph to ‘First graph’ (that’s ‘Main’ with first line indent set to 0 mm) I want the paragraph to retain all italics. So I have to pull the hamburger and choose ‘Change and preserve local formatting’. How can I make this the default behaviour, so it keeps all italics without having to use the hamburger? I’ve tried to follow the instructions in the Help file, but nothing seems to happen. And I’ve tried to reproduce my problem with subheadings retaining the Main style, but I can’t. In this example, it does say ‘Subhead + Palatino’, but uses Helvetica (like it should). The problem was that it did say ‘Subhead + Palatino’ but the font did not change to Helvetica. Curious...

  12. Ah, yes, thanks! Inserting a line break so the software can remove it...
  13. Hello all — new user here, just in from Quarkland. Like everyone else here, I seem to struggle with text and paragraph styles. Sometimes, I want my paragraph style to completely override my default text type, like a Helvetica subhead in a Times document. Other times I want it to honour local settings, like a no-indent first paragraph with italics (style or ad hoc) in it. I just can’t figure out how to adjust the settings to have them do by default what I want them to do, without having to pull the hamburger. I’ve tried everything — Paragraph style ‘Based on normal’, ‘Based on heading’ or ‘Based on No Style’, control-click the hamburger and choose one from the pop-up (with or without text selected), Edit>Default>Synchronize followed by Edit>Default>Save... I think I saw a kind of checkmark in the hamburger menu once, when I was exploring an earlier version of Publisher, but now I can’t reproduce it in any way. Can someone please help me out? Things might be easier if I were able to set these default behaviours in the Edit Text Styles dialog... (iMac 2014, OS 10.14.6 and MBA 2020, OS 10.12.2)
