  1. Have a disaster. Did a 7-page document and thought I was home free after sending PDF proof to customer. Went back in to edit and now every time I try to save the document, it crashes on me. If I try to do a 'save as', it also crashes. I rebooted, etc., no luck. Am unable to edit and save changes any more. Short of starting over, is there anything I can do?

  2. Placed image initially on one page. Then duped that page content for additional pages with copy chabges.
  3. THANKS TONS! Saved me tons of rework. Regards.
  4. Thanks... w/o the images, I can't publish the document... FAT-RATS! Going to re-do in InDesign. Thanks.
  5. Is there any way to make the background grid darker in Publisher?
  6. Is there any kind of "indent to here" marker (like in InDesign)? It's relative so you don't need to change the ruler all the time with font size changes.

    Custom indent

    I do a lot of FB stuff for S&G's... Here's one that I just did and couldn't get the hanging indent properly. I'd like to resize the type and have the hanging indents still good for size changes. As you can see, it's not quite right, but I'm a nit-picker in my old age. Thanks. old.afpub
  8. Is there any way to assign keyboard equivalents for en and em and thin space characters? It's a nuisance to go to the text/inserts/spacings, tabs drop down menu when doing jobs with multiple ens and ems required.
  9. Bag that last note.. found it. Thanks again! Sorry to be a PITA. At 76+, nothings easy any more.
  10. Can't find... where to look in attached?
  11. Where would I be w/o you Walt? Much thanx again.
  12. When importing PDFs, is there any way to have text paragraphs stay intact as paragraphs, instead of breaking into individual lines? I want to convert a ton of docs done in InD but can't do this way as would be too much work. Also tables come across with individual cells as line segments. Any solution for that issue too? Thanks.

    Importing PDFs

    Was afraid you would say that. Thanks! (Too much work redoing my InD filz).
  15. Tried importing a PDF into Publisher... type in the original PDF actually was changed after importing. Seems to have an issue with the word 'after' as it changed it to ai er with an oversize 'i' in there. Uh-oh! ? ? ? Benefits of Quitting Smoking Over Time.pdf pdf import.afpub

    PDF import issues

    Thanks all. Got this off a web source. Wouldn't have thought originator would use ligatures; must've been automatic in whatever program they used.
  17. Any way to crop a publisher page WITHOUT going back to the setup pages? I do a lot of FB pages 5x7, but many do not "fill" the area so I have to save as PNG than crop that file. Would like to be able to crop the publisher page then just export to a correctly sized png or jpeg.
  18. Any way to break one wide text block into multiple columns with equal space between columns? Do this regularly with InD and was hoping to do the same with Publisher.
  19. New beta doesn't recognize my existing photo & designer apps. Any reason why?
  20. Thanks all... think I'll stay put & wait for live update.
  21. Just tried beta... doesn't recognize my licensed photo or designer apps; asking me to download betas of both of them. When I try to download it takes me to a forum page. Can you fix? Thanks.

    Placing PDFs causes lines

    I had same problem but found that the lines did not print. Strange.
  23. Is there any way when opening a PDF table page that was done with InDesign's table utility that will maintain the table grid? I tried one simple table and it came over fine--size & dimensions of cells, etc., but all the rules, horizontal & verticle, were individual line segments. The box-heads were also separated objects and not "within" the table head areas.Methinks I may have to stay with InD for this kind of work. SHUCKS! Attached is source InD (CS6) doc, PDF created from same, and .afpub file result. Any ideas? Thanks.

  24. Switching from InD to Publisher (whew!)... is it possible to have the linespacing in a block of text and heads/subheads automatically fill a text box? I really liked this feature in InD. Thanks.
