  1. Use this exactly? I tried, but it found nothing - though I know there must be dozens more cases in the doc.
  2. This adds spaces after the number - but I want to indent the whole numbered list. I assume there is an option to indent the list itself - instead of having it stuck to the left hand margin?
  3. I have been trying to find and replace double spaces in the text with single spaces. I am finding that the search feature is very hit and miss. I continually find double spaces while eyeballing the text which I have to correct manually. Is there some reason the search feature is missing so many? I have found this in searching for other things as well. Is this feature still under development? Thanks
  4. I have a left indent set in the numbered list, but the numbers are all left margin aligned. How do I fix this?
  5. I watched the video but could not understand how this would apply to my project. I cannot seem to make the basics work well in Publisher, so the more advanced ideas are beyond me at this point.
  6. How do you mean 'smart' master pages? Is there a good video tutorial that you know of that demonstrates this?
  7. I attach two files - WISS forum 3.afpub - and - WISS forum 4.afpub In the first, you can see the before - and in the second, the after. When I delete the blank page after the TOC, it goes to pieces. The headers behave strangely. The right hand headers vanish from some pages, and on page XV one appears with red dots. This is pretty much the last thing I need to solve in this file. All thoughts most welcome.
  8. Thanks OB. "As to the styles issues I see that you have the Group style Base applied to the text in the headers instead of an actual Paragraph Style." How do I fix this? Is there a video that illustrates/explains this?
  9. I was really hoping to avoid the nuclear option of redoing the book. But yes, it makes no sense. I have found through doing books for years that at some point the file seems bugged somehow. I'm not clear on this - "Define a unique style set for your page number and apply it to your text frame for page numbers on the master pages." Can you explain that a little more?
  10. The headers and footers are misbehaving. You can see on page XIII that it is ignoring the style set out in the master. Also on XIII you can see the red dots on the header - suggesting there is other text there. I do not understand why. The style issue is also happening - seemingly at random - to the headers on the following two pages. I have tried reapplying the master without success. When I reapply it, the text flow in the master is also missing. The problems seem to have started since I attempted to insert a table of contents. I've attached the file - hopefully someone can set me straight. WISS forum 2.afpub
  11. New issue: now the headers and footers are misbehaving. You can see on page XIII that it is ignoring the style set out in the master. Also on XIII you can see the red dots on the header - suggesting there is other text there. I do not understand why. The style issue is also happening - seemingly at random - to the headers on the following two pages. I have tried reapplying the master without success. The problems seem to have started since I attempted to insert a table of contents. WISS forum 2.afpub
  12. Thanks for taking a look Joachim. a) and b) are okay for now. I am using M facing numerals on all. The bigger issue is c) The text frames are linked fine before I apply the master. I'd like to solve the issue of why this changes, otherwise I will have to relink the entire book as I go.
  13. Here are the first 30 pages. You can see multiple problems, which include the fact that when I apply the master, all text from the right facing page vanishes. Any thoughts on that, too? 😩 WISS forum.afpub
  14. What do you mean by cleaned? And - how do I save just a few pages? Is there an easy way to do this? Or do I have to make a new file and delete most of the book?
  15. How do I set up the headers so that they automatically link to each other in each section?
  16. I do not wish to upload it publicly. It's a full book. What are the options? However there are multiple issues with the doc, so an expert pair of eyes would be very handy.
  17. I'm trying to move a header, but if it goes above or below beyond a certain line it vanishes. I assume it is snapping. If this is the issue, how do I resolve it? If it is not the issue, how can I correct the problem? I have baseline grid selected.
  18. Yes - all layers show an orange line. What does this mean and how should I deal with it?
  19. I have set up a master page to control the size of the page numbers - but the font size is not changing in the pages. Why might this be? I have changed the font size to 9 pt in the master, but it is still 12 pt on the page to which I have applied that master. Any ideas?
  20. I have lots of text for a book that has the straight line apostrophes. Is there a simple find and replace option to change them all to curved apostrophes? Word has this function, but I'd love to skip that whole operation if Publisher already has it.
