  1. Cheers @Old Bruce much appreciated.
  2. When I create a document and put any sort of frame or text box on the first page the co-ordinates are correct. But when I do the same on page 2 or subsequent pages the co-ordinates appear wrong with minus figures. The co-ordinates don't appear to originate from the top left of each page like I would assume they do (and do in InDesign). Is this a bug? Or is it a setting I have got wrong? I have tried to find the ruler units preference (as InDesign) but there doesn't appear to be one in Preferences. Is this hidden away somewhere else?
  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. This is one that not everyone suffers from then. I will have to see if it s the same on my MacBook Pro.
  10. Have you tried the Test document I attached to my first post to see if you can replicate the problem?
  11. Answers Question 1: Upon brief testing it appears not to happen in documents newly created in Beta 257 when I start completely from scratch. But if I create a new document but then copy and paste text boxes from a document created in a previous beta it still happens but only with those text boxes. It does not happen with a new text box. Question 2: If I open a document created in a previous beta it happens all the time. If I create a new document then it appears not to happen. I hadn't noticed it not happening in newly created documents because I actually hadn't created a totally new document since Beta 257 was released. I had been using a 'template' I use for the jobs I was doing in Publisher. I am using Beta 257 on an iMac running macOS 10.13.6 as well.
  12. I'm getting the same 'select one text box but another gets selected' issue since the latest build was installed. Seems to happen with the Frame Text Tool selected. Test.afpub
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. @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.
