  1. That's very true and that's why I said to use anything that stands out. Only the person working on a given project will know best what options to employ to make a given style stand out. At the end of the day this trick is just a workaround and and it may not be appropriate in some situations.
  2. Another way would be to just modify any Text Style to add colour or underline or anything that stands out to temporarily see where a given style had been used.
  3. Peter Kahrel wrote a nice little grep that applies a background colour to every second paragraph in a story. see: https://indesignsecrets.com/adding-shading-to-alternate-paragraphs-with-grep-find-change.php?utm_source=CreativePro+Network+List&utm_campaign=2b69fc0643-InDesign_Secrets_Tip_of_the_Week_1_28_2016_COPY_01&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_98b7b678b4-2b69fc0643-262960537 I tried to reproduce this example in Publisher but unfortunately Publisher doesn't select the consecutive 2 paragraphs correctly and instead selects the whole text. The grep in question is: Find: \r.+\r\K. Replace: Shaded Paragraph Style Once this this bug is sorted out this grep will work as per the article above. Of course one would need to define a Shaded Para Style for GREP to apply it to the selection.
  4. The price tag of Publisher is going to be such that we will have to remortgage our homes in order to afford it.
  5. I haven't checked it myself but accordingly to a very reliable source, (David Blatner) the entire font will be embedded if you put 0% into Subset fonts when percent of characters used is less than: 0%.
  6. Not really the case. inDesign allows you to instruct the PDF engine whether to embed the whole font or just the part of the font used in a given file.
  7. I think he has reached at least a megabyte by now.
  8. Hi @GabrielM, The recording shows that the secondary text skips the existing pages and adds them at the end of the document. This has not been done with master pages.
  9. Not a difficult thing to do.
  10. Of course it does. You tell it what text fame you want by drawing it on the page. Let me be clear. I know how to solve this particular problem. If you create text boxes on facing pages on a master page and connect them then things work OK. That's the method I would use for long documents anyway. What I'm saying here is that there should be an equivalence, I think, that if somebody doesn't want to use text placeholders on master pages this way should work too. See the screencast: secondary.mov
  11. This is a case for a manual text placement. A publishing software like Publisher is not capable of reading your mind where the next page of an article should go. We are talking here about automated way of placing text on each page.
  12. I don't think you did. Create a new page and put a primary text frame. Insert enough text into this text frame so that when you shift-click the triangle new pages and text boxes are automatically added to the pages. Go back to page 1. Create a secondary text frame and insert some text. Then shift-click the triangle to add this text the other pages. Instead this new text is added to new pages at the back of the existing pages. These text frames are never added on the existing pages.

    Command+C Crash

    Problem is that it's random. 1. Started a new document 2. Added main text frames (verso, recto + linked them) in Master Pages 3. Switched to pages and added 12 more pages. 4. Added filler text to the first frame. 5. Selected all text with Command+A and copied it Command+C and pasted it at the end of the current text. 6. Shift-Click on the overflow text triangle to flow the remaining text to the rest of the pages. 6. Repeated Steps 5 and 6 a few times but eventually on another Command+A, Command+C Publisher crashed. That's all I can tell you (or remember) about the step taken before the crash.
