  1. I don't use Master Pages all that much as a lot of my work is leaflet work rather than multi-page books so this may seem like a very basic question. I am in the middle of a brochure which at present is over 90 pages. I have created two master pages with different column formats but besides the guides for this, the only thing actually on the pages is a page number and a line of text next to it - all in black text in a light font weight. When working on the book, I have used black and other solid colour backgrounds so have changed some of the page numbers/text to white. After deliberation, the light font is too light so I have changed the original master pages to a Regular weight font to help with legibility. It appears that the pages I have changed to white have not updated to Regular font. Is there a way make the font update to Regular automatically without having to go through every single page I have changed? Actually, I have just checked empty bar-the-master-page info pages and none of the number/text have updated to Regular font so I must be doing something wrong.
  2. I use Publisher on both iMac and MacBook Pro. I would like the application on both machines to open with exactly the same window positions, keyboard shortcuts etc. Is there any way to easily make the Preferences exactly the same on both machines?
  3. Yeah I will. Annoyed with myself for doing it to be honest but I will remember next time.
  4. I can't actually recreate the issue at the moment because it's random and happens when the application feels like.
  5. It wasn't Art Text. I can't check it now as I've deleted it because it was annoying the hell out of me. Sorry!
  6. Nope, I hadn't done anything besides created the box and paste the text.
  7. I can assure you it is a text frame. Thanks for the quick reply.
  8. Why do text boxes created using the Frame Text Tool sometimes have the resize handle on it and sometimes not? I can resize the Frame with the handle in two ways. Using the extra handle, it resizes box and text. Using the corner handle it just does the box and not the text. The Frame without the extra handle will only resize box and text. This behaviour, I assume, is the expected way it works but what I want to know is why the extra handle sometimes appears and sometimes not. The text in both was copied from a text clipping and then pasted into the box. macOS 10.13.6, Publisher
  9. Yep they will be CMYK, which is ok for the majority of my work but sometimes I need the ability to use Pantone spot colours which is another reason why I asked the question.
  10. Those are created in Illustrator but I also use JPEGs hence my original question. I will try the copy and paste method to see how it works.
  11. @walt.farrell I own both applications. I’m thinking that it may be far easier to do this when the Photo and Designer personas are available. It still won’t be as easy as it should be though. I do wonder if I will end up with multiple colour versions of the same file though. Saving as a greyscake JPEG and colouring within InDesign stops such a scenario.
  12. Thanks, that works for me. It's still a lot more work than InDesign but at least I can do what I want without having to resort to using another application.
  13. @Wosven I saw that before posting but you have to use Photo to do it. I want to know how to do this solely in Publisher - just like you can in InDesign. I have tried to use that method and can't get it to work for me. It seems a very long-winded way of doing something which is so easily done in InDesign.
  14. @dominik Thanks for the reply but that isn't what I am asking. All my documents are set up to be CMYK. I want to know how to apply a colour to a greyscale JPEG on an object by object basis.
  15. How do I add colour to a greyscale JPEG in Publisher? In InDesign, you can do it really easily by using the Direct Selection Tool and then choosing a colour. I cannot see any way of doing the same thing within Publisher. For the screenshot, the red set of ornaments were coloured in Illustrator so you could see what I want to do.
