  1. Here is a solution I use: 1. I created an asset consisting of a text box with two line of text: "continued on Page" and "continued from Page ". 2. Create text frames as needed, and link them so text flows through. 3. At the lower right corner just below the initial frame for a text, place the asset I created. 4. Create a link from the asset to a new very small text frame placed just above the upper left corner of the next frame with text. 5. Go back to the frame of the asset and shrink it vertically so that only one line of text (the "continued on Page" text) is displayed. 6. The second linked small frame will now show the second line of text in the asset ( "continued from Page") 7. In each of the two small frames insert the appropriate field (i.e., next frame or previous frame) 8. Resize each of the small frames to fit as needed.
  2. I've been using publisher for several months now. IN the earlier beta stages it was not as functional as PP. Now, the latest release beta, which is, I think, similar to the release candidate, is clearly superior to PP9. It still does NOT open PP files, I believe, so you would need to start a fresh file, but I can now do everything I could with PP 9, and more, as efficiently, if not more so. Len G Oregon
  3. Is it possible to set a default view or default zoom value. I like to do most of my work at a zoom level which displays full page width. Can I set some preference so that the template I would start from, or the document I create, will default to that zoom level?
  4. Thanks. The index page is there for Photo, but not for Publisher. Interestingly, the index page is also NOT there for Designer, but the help file opens when I press F! or click help in Designer.
  5. It just started about a week ago, after I downloaded the most recent Publisher Beta. (Now Designer help will come up, but not Photo or Publisher).
  6. On all applications the help window will NOT display.. It used to be the case that one must select English (UK) to display help, but neither version of English will permit the display of any help screens. A window opens, but nothing is shown.
  7. How can I get Publisher to recognize that the time display x:xx (with\hours and minutes separated by a colon), is not a misspelling?
  8. Thanks./ After rebooting I was able to, using the admin command prompt, delete the existing affinity directories. After that Designed installed fine. I haven't had a chance to try photo again, but I assume it will work also.
  9. What is even worse is that I cannot delete the program directories, even at the administrator command prompt level!
  10. I just downloaded version 135 for both photo and designer. When I tried to update my system (now running version 123) I got a setup failed message and version 123 for each were deleted from my system (and I cannot reinstall them)! What do I do now?

    Crash on edit

    It happened again, quite some time after creating a new document. I won't send that to you unless you want it .
  12. I can open a file without a problem, but any time I do anything (change page, type text, select an object, the application crashes. It has something to do with the specific file, because I can open other files without a problem. How do I generate a crash report so I can try to debug? This the second file it has happened on.IN both cases, it is only after having done a lot of work on the document and reaching the point of cleaning up before final publication, so it is extremely frustrating.

  13. Thanks. Just tried that approach. Unfortunately, the "continued on" link points to page 2 when the content frame is linked to page 5. Seems the added frame for the continued on text is not subordinate to the main content frame, but independent.
  14. I frequently do newsletters where text must flow across more than one frame to avoid making pages look like tombstones. That process is fairly straightforward in AP, but it is a challenge to provide information to the reader to tell them where the next frame is located. It is possible to, in the text menu, select insert, and then fields, and then next frame page number, preceded by the text "continued on page ....". That does not work well unless done at the very end of the process, since any addition of text or graphics in the initial frame can easily move the text and the next frame page number to the next frame. A work around is to create a small text frame just below the content text frame and enter the "continued..." text followed by the field. Unfortunately, the insert reference will not be to the correct page, unless you have also created an equivalent text frame immediately above the next content text frame and linked the two "continued" frames. Is there some way to embed a text frame within another text frame so that the link to the target frame can be observed when adding the index field? (This was a feature available in PPlus.)
