    Global layers

    I'm very much looking forward to this feature! Not having it really bogs down my workflow.
  4. I've just come here because I wanted to find out how to create global layers: and I'm sad to learn this isn't possible yet. My case scenario is this: I have a year planner with two days per week, including a unique quote for each. I intend to release multiple versions of the planner (digital pdf), where the quotes follow different themes, so I want to be able to turn off all the theme A quotes and activate the theme B quotes, and then the same for themes C and D. Very similar to the multi-lingual example above. The only other option that I can see is to make sure the base document is set—no changes needed—and then create a new document for each quote theme. What a pity it can't all be done in the same file!
  5. Haha, probably! I should ask this question in its own thread I suppose.
  6. Not sure if this was what you meant, but InDesign gives the option to split a column into multiple smaller columns as needed, as well as the ability to have particular lines span the entire width of the page. I'd love to see this functionality in Publisher! In fact I'd go so far as to say it's a must if it's to be a serious contender as a page layout program.
  7. Looking forward to seeing a Hyperlinks panel in AP. It's a must, guys! Thanks for all your great work so far, I'm loving this program.
  8. I'm trying to use my double-sided printer to print a 192 page book in signatures, and to export a PDF of the file so that others can do the same. Is it possible to press print, select the Booklet option, AND somehow tell AP that I'm looking for signatures of 4 or 5 sheets each? At the moment when I select "Booklet" and ask it to print pages 1 - 16, I get page 194 included in the mix. What I'm looking for is an automatic way to print my 192 page document with correct booklet page ordering for pages 1-16 only, then pages 17-32 only, etc. I'm hoping there is an easier way than creating separate files for each group of 16 pages!
  9. I am looking for a one-stop full screen preview mode as well! Hopefully there's an answer out there somewhere.
  10. Yes, could be. I have Dropbox and BackBlaze attached, but this problem has never come up in the past.

  12. Pretty sure that wouldn't have been the case as there's nothing else attached to my computer.
  13. The sequel to this short saga: I found the file in the Deleted Files section of my online Dropbox account. Hooray for automatic cloud backups! I noted that it still had the name of the original file I'd Saved As, rather than the new name I'd created. Odd. I was able to restore the file to my computer from Dropbox, but the mystery as to how it disappeared from my computer in the first place still remains.
  14. Let me begin by saying, I am loving Publisher! So far it's almost everything I hoped it would be, with more coming, so I'm really happy. However... I did 2 hours of work in Publisher the other night, saved regularly, only to be met by a message something like: Your file has been deleted and will close now. The message only appeared for a second so I can't be sure of the exact wording, and fortunately I'm not a swearing kind of person so you don't have to wonder about MY wording when it happened - mouth did hang open and eyebrows went up though, I can tell you. I've searched everywhere for the missing file, but it's not in the trash, not hidden anyway that I can see (even in the ~Library/Application Support folders) - it just seems to have been either obliterated or beamed away to an inaccessible dimension. My fault entirely for trusting this work to a brand new beta program (we were all warned very clearly), but still I thought it best to let you know what happened in case there's an identifiable bug that can be squashed. I remain undaunted: I'm going to begin the work again, and this time I'll Save As regularly to keep versions as the project progresses.
  15. To continue the side question, anything equivalent in screen capture for Mac that you know of? Those were really well presented, ChristAlix.
