  1. 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.
  2. What is even worse is that I cannot delete the program directories, even at the administrator command prompt level!
  3. 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 .
  5. 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.

  6. 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.
  7. 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.)
  8. Is there any way to increase the size of the panels? I undock them and show them on my second monitor, but the icons and text are both so small that I cannot read them without magnification.
  9. Perhaps this will be helpful in development. I recreated the document I have been working on, and entered the hyperlinks. All worked fine, suggested that somehow the original document I had bee working on had gotten corrupted through my multiple edits.
  10. When I click on go to target in the Hyperlink studio nothing happens. Go to source seems to work consistently. This is important to me because while I have checked the hyperlinks carefully, several of them in my test document do not function once the document is exported to pdf (and, in fact, a couple of them go to different links than are specified in the studio panel. Not sure if this is corruption in the document or a bug, so I will probably have to recreate the document from a blank document, although I will probably clear user data by doing a CTRL run up first\s, just in case. All of my hyperlinks are within a text frame, and I have had no difficulty assigning the hyperlink to a single word within the text frame.
  11. Thanks for the suggestion to start AP while holding the ctrl key. That got the hyperlink window running. I must admit, I had never seen that option for fixing problems. As for naming, I have discovered that if you select text that is a descriptive name for the hyperlink, that is what will show up in the hyperlink panel. If you are careful to edit the selected text you can get a more generic title for the hyperlink in the document, but the panel retains the more descriptive link you started with. Not quite like being able to directly edit the name in the panel, but it can prove helpful. In my case, I want the hyperlink the user sees to have a common name, in this case "agenda," but refer the user to a url that is different for each appearance of the link. By the way, for me the "small round button" -- go to target, is completely non-functional.
  12. Just verified that export hyperlinks was checked. Interestingly enough, a fully qualified url will successfully export.
  13. Another "dumb as a post question." I downloaded version 238. Opened up my test publication. Using the text frame tool, selected a block of text; clicked on text, interactive, insert hyperlink. In the dialog box selected url, inserted the url in the address box and selected hyperlink format. Returned to the document and the selected text is in blue, and underlined, as one would expect, but when I hover over the text in select mode, I get no indication that I can click on the text to open the hyperlink. Naturally, if I export the file as a pdf, there is no hyperlink exported. (Of course it wouldn't if AP doesn't recognize a hyperlink exists.) What am I doing wrong? test.afpub
