  1. Hello, I'm also a Pages user. Yet, some jobs won't be done with Pages because it lacks few tiny details to use it professionally. Publisher - it's my guess - needs preciser indications to "translate" the documents in a proper way.
  2. Well, I use it already professionally (though it is recommended not to, yet)... but, it's true, I don't need footnotes in my books. But, if I really had to get stuff to place down a page, I would simply create few more Master Pages including these needed spaces and do the rest of the job manually. Yes, maybe you have tones of references to lay down there... then, of course, it is harsh to handle too much.
  3. Thanks, I'll have another closer look. ...And concernant the unlink of tex frames: it's OK I found the answer on YouTube ! OK! Maybe there were too many text frames linked at a time (about 75). I unlinked at the last "invisible text frame, and the text appeared normal. Relinking to the next ones made it all well. EDIT * The problem is: these are from the Master pages... and I still didn't find out how to make changes on pages depending on Master page...
  4. Also, how to unlink the text frames (can't find the way back to this information with the search engine)
  5. Another strange issue: invisible text... yet supposed to be black as all. (Maybe I have a look on the Master Page: could be a different preset by mistake...)
  6. Interesting stuff (I think): I restarted a new test on the same scheme as before. And as I'm pretty lazy, I tried to reopen the famous file which made the new Pub version quit... and see there (!): with the new file left open, I even was able to copy-paste text frames with fx a.s.o. with ease and (apparently) no bugs! I'm flabbergasted, but maybe it will help you to understand something about some glitches...
  7. New version quits, as soon I touch the reopened file created with 1.7.0.227. Guess I'll have to test from scratch...
  8. Oh! Right! Actually run on 1.7.0.227 (updated las week). I'll immediately download the latest and check with the same tests. Thank you. EDIT It says it's the latest version when clicking on the "about" info menu... I run to the web site to have a look.
  9. One more thing: Yet few walls and hussels to overcome. How can I manage these issues?
  10. Hello, In fact, my question is multiple: 1. How can I modify text frames on a specific page made out of an applied Master Page. Some crosses appear on a select text frame, but they can't be moved. 2. Why are selected frames, not enlightened within the Layers window? (Gives a hard time finding out what to select next.) 3. Is there any shortcut to select an object (layer) by clicking directly on a page generated by a Master page? 4. Is it normal not to be able to select and modify layer's name, in Layer window? 5. Are all these frequent or permanent issues when using Master Pages? 6. Does it need to create a specific Master page for each typographic variation? Thanks for your attention.

  11. Hi Walt, When placing the texts, these lots of underlined words are quite disturbing... especially if writing in another language. It would be nice to be able to disable the correction mode at this point. Hi Wosven, Right! Yet, I can understand that at the PAO stage, the texts are supposed to be corrected before typographic and placements. Nevertheless, I still would feel good having Antidote working hand in hand with Photo and Designer too... Best wishes folks. P.S.: It is Antidote helping me the English corrections, in this case
  12. Hello, As enthusiastic Publisher fan, and accessorely story writer and book editor, I wonder if any collaboration with Druide's Antidote is on tracks. Also, yet as a beta, will there be a way to get the auto-correction disabled when texts are not in English? Anyway, in my point of view, thanks for your excellent job! For my use, Publisher is already a better tool than InDesign. Best Regards to all.
  13. Right. Leaving Quark for InDesign was quite a challenge for over a year… Now, to my opinion, Publisher is pretty easy to switch to. Personally, I already left Adobe behind and even used Publisher to print two of my last books. Working right from scratch makes it easier to forget about InDesign. Of course, I don’t need to work with older Adobe files (and even then, there’s still Adobe on my older Mac).
  14. Just thinking: The ideal would be being able to select all the similar elements and replace them all by the same but hard space one. (But maybe it allready is, and I am just overseeing it because of my lack of knowledge...)
