  1. I have a recipe name style associated with many text frames. I decided that I wanted to increase the recipe name's font size. I edited the style and made the change. The recipe name I was working on changed size, but the others did not. How do I make the changes happen to all uses of the style. Here's one thing I noticed: Whatever this box is, if I clear it out, the change affects the current recipe name.
  2. Periodically copy your publisher files to dropbox, or something similar, too.
  3. Thanks @Old Bruce. My next book is original so I will follow your suggestion.
  4. @Old Bruce The text is in an html file (eek) that I am copy/pasting-unformatted into Publisher. I could make a text copy by pasting into a notepad document or some other text-only editor. Had I known the ability to blast an entire file into publisher existed, I would have used it. One challenge is that I am trying to match the format of the original book. Unfortunately, some pages have 1 recipe, some have 2 or 3, some have no ingredients. Some have ingredients in 1 column, some have ingredients in 2 columns, some have instructions, some don't. Then there are full-page images but these
  5. I suppose I need some guidance on best practice. I have a master page that includes a header, footer, and a styled text frame for the page text. So all the text I put down is in a frame, as I understand it. But then I added a frame for my recipe name, one for the ingredients, and one for the instructions. Now I need to get my vertical spacing between these right, and it can only be done by moving the frames as far as I can tell. But this doesn't seem like sound formatting, and I can't control the vertical spacing except by dragging individual frames around.
  6. Is there a way to delete a text frame but to let the content just go plop! onto the page? I have over-text-framed my document.
  7. "These aren't the page numbers you're looking for" *waves hand*
  8. I did this, and was rewarded with a single 300 page signature 😄
  9. True, but I have here a tool which blurs the line between typesetting and bindery. Are you suggesting I should print a document, print my images, and then manually shuffle them together? I bet that if I pick the right signature size, all my images are on the same physical pages. That way the binder would literally shuffle the plates into the printed pages, and then make the signatures.
  10. Yeah, I'm done now. Took a few hours and the result feels fragile to me. The section tool is annoying, too. I don't like that it starts off in edit mode, and I don't like that any changes you make are instant and can't be UNDO'ed. Consider that if you decide to renumber the pages, you click the radio button. They default to 1, and then apply it. Senseless. Don't apply it until I type my new number. Preferably, they should not do *anything* until I click "ok". Anyway, here are 3 suggestions for the developers if they're reading this. Improve the section dialog; it is too ent
  11. Well, well, well. All the images are linked. Except 2. These aren't from my book. They are images I posted to this forum while asking for assistance. How they got embedded into my project I don't know. Probably me spazzing on copy/paste. How else? Amusing. Yep, they are real. They were not visible on the page. They're gone now, lol.
  12. I *think* they are linked. That's what I wanted. How can I check?
  13. Note I did not say "suppressing page numbering". I am formatting an old book where every so often (like every 6 pages) a plate was inserted. The plate (and it's backside) do not count as 'pages' in the original book. That is, you might see: page #1, page #2, plate1, backside, page #3 Publisher would number the last page as page #5. I am trying to keep my copy as true to the original as possible. This means every few pages I have to use the section tool to reset the page numbers. It's a pain and is taking forever. I am using a different master page for all the plates. Is there some
  14. So I am not complaining about the slowness, as such. It's a gaming computer with a adequate graphics card and memory. There are something like 50 portraits of luminaries, really only 1 font in use (trusty Times New Roman), though it is used in a few different sizes, with some bolding and italics here and there. I have added maybe 3 fonts to what comes with Windows normally. I don't know if they are activated in the document. I never heard of 'activated'. What's a "normal" project look like? One book per project? This is project #1 for me. I haven't a clue what constitutes normal.
