  1. Here’s an idea that might be considered. It is only the older forum members who will remember that before 1980 many people subscribed to monthly magazines and kept each year’s copies in a special folder designed to stand tidily on a bookshelf. In the December edition, there was an index of the year’s contents published which listed issue, page number and for every article that had appeared during the year. I noted that every email client had a facility for the input and output of Names, Email Addresses and other information that was held. Excel too could import files of many types.
  2. Dear Serif I wouldn’t want to cast aspersions which were wrong but I get the nagging thought that perhaps Serif has rather come down to thinking in a partisan way. Perhaps acting along the lines of the following convictions. 1. Only professional graphic designers use iPads and apple computers, those who use Pageplus especially those who require book capacities, tend to be amateurs. 2. These InDesign users are the ones we need to concentrate on to win them away from Adobe programs. 3. Although there is a driving need to produce an application to convert InDesign files to pub
  3. Good point Nicholas, I often have to print a cover on card for a paperback, in Pageplus I always use the editor to alter the lettering on a spine which, of course is turned at 90 degrees. Another factor is that editing can be done on only one chapter at a time. A big plus in a long book of more than 150 pages. My way of working would be greatly enhanced by being able to concentrate on just one part of a very large number of pages. John
  4. What is the position over Multiline H & J, called "Adobe Paragraph Composer" in InDesign. Are we to get a much improved justifying algorithm which goes back to the previous full stop and rejigs the previous whole paragraph for best fit. Perhaps even altering character width as well as word and letter spacing. Even better, may we expect this in the near future? Only asking. (Grin) John
  5. It's good that there are separate adjustments for Hyphenation, Justification and Tracking. What seems to be lacking is any skilled tuition in the using of these factors, perhaps another good advanced video on the subject? Is this a possibility? John
  6. Two questions really: It's good that there are separate adjustments for Hyphenation, Justification and Tracking. What seems to be lacking is any skilled tuition in the using of these factors, perhaps another good advanced video on the subject? The second is: What is the position over Multiline H & J, called "Adobe Paragraph Composer" in InDesign.

  7. I think I confused it with setting column width for a single text frame, which for my publication should be 4.427 inches. It takes me some time to deal with the more meticulous needs of Publisher I'm afraid. Thanks for your interest. John
  8. Thomaso, I cannot thank you enough, this has been bugging me for a good long time and now you have made life a lot simpler for me. The differences between Publisher and PagePlus have made adopting the new program into a steep learning curve and you have helped me a great deal. Thanks again it's great to be able to depend on the solid help of the forum. John
  9. Sorry Walt, I didn't understand, hope this is OK, The other should be OK though hopefully. Thanks for all your help. John Extract of file.afpub
  10. Thank you Walt. Here's the spread and also the settings on Paragraph, Transform and character panel. Hope you can make sense of these. John Wood 1 pp 6 & 7.pdf
  11. This hasn't really sorted itself, I work on Windows 7 and this problem has persisted, I usually use CTRL C and CTRL V to populate my text boxes as I have in the top frame, in the lower frame, as soon as I have created the frame I try to write the same word and look what happens. I include the part of the Text Frame dialog to show that the size of column is correct. This at the front of a 67 page document. Can anyone suggest what is happening please. John
  12. Thank you Tomaso for your interest, I assure you that the text colour was set when I set the text style for Heading 1 which i understand is the proper method of doing this, although I must plead guilty of inefficiency, adjusting after many years of PagePlus experience. Thank you Walt, you have always given good and tolerant advice, even to those labouring under an "inefficient workflow." I don't think the problem is important enough to me to spend any more time on it really. Thank you again. John
  13. Strangely enough I started to do this by CTRL C on page 60 and this is what it produced, I also printed it out as well and it came out the proper colour so I shan't be trying to change it any more. Seems like an occasional peculiarity I am going to learn to live with.
  14. The style, Heading 1 is the right colour (dark red) everywhere else in the whole document, nothing I do will get this particular piece of text to change to the correct colour. Can anyone suggest what might be the problem please? John
