  1. I am going to try this, but each level of the index has a different style, so this is actually a major pain in the neck.
  2. In Publisher, it would be very helpful if, like Notes, the Index settings had a checkbox to turn off 'Generate hyperlinks'. I know that you can simply not export hyperlinks, but that would mean all hyperlinks would be removed, and there are instances I'd like to have my personally added hyperlinks exported, but not auto-generated hyperlinks. Additionally, I just noticed that the Table of Contents allows 'Include as PDF bookmarks'. I think this should be changed to allow a specific style to be used as Bookmarks, i.e. the style used as the top-level of the ToC. Sometimes there are multiple levels and you might not want all of them to become Bookmarks, as it could overwhelm the UI for Bookmarks. Also, I think one should have the option for the page numbers be regular hyperlinks to the pages, maybe instead of the bookmarks.
  3. I know, but I have external hyperlinks I'd like to keep. It seems like there should be a way to keep those you create, and shut off all the automatically-generated ones. You can turn off the Notes hyperlinks, so why not the Index hyperlinks? There should be a way.
  4. I'm trying to take my book and create a Print Replica book in KDP. Part of the process is what Kindle Create calls 'Restoring Links...' which basically activates the internal hyperlinks from the PDF. This is especially important if you want people to click from the Index and be able to go to the page mentioned. Based on the links in the index, each page number should be a hyperlink to the page. However, take a look at the hyperlinks that Create generates: Note that some of the words are hyperlinks, and links also seem to include commas. If I click on the page number next to antipodes, 148, it goes to page 645. If I click on the word antipodes, it goes to page 37. You can clearly see those pages come from the entry above it, anon. If you click on the next word, archbishopric, it goes to page 148, but the number correctly goes to page 173. Basically wherever you see a word underlined, it is messed up. The original AP file, and the PDF that was generated, all look normal. Those words are not links. Now I assume this is a problem with the Kindle Create software. However, that is beyond my control, and that software is the only software I can use to create the Print Replica eBook as far as I know. So my question is if there is any possibility that there is some export option when creating the PDF that might effect this? And if not, is there a way to simply not have the Index contain hyperlinks? I see I can shut them off for Notes, but I don't see a way to do so with the Index. Thanks.
  5. In Publisher 2.5.3, I'm searching by Paragraph Style. I try to select a paragraph style towards the end of the list, but when it maxes out on my screen I can't scroll down anymore to see the later styles. I can use the arrow keys to move down, but I can't see what I'm selecting.
  6. Okay, I redid the second index and it is working now, except there are some weird things. In the index the page number are links. But some of the words are also links, and they go to the wrong places. The links are not in the PDF, just in Kindle Create. Super annoying.
  7. I double-checked the original file, and indeed there are no hyperlinks in Apub, but there seems to be no explanation why one section has and another doesn't.
  8. Here's an interesting twist. I separated out one section of my Index into a separate section. When I exported to PDF with hyperlinks, and then imported to Kindle Create, it found the hyperlinks from the main Index section, but not the section I separated. I actually separated both from the actual index which I created, and then deleted the real index, so it wouldn't update while I was working. So really no difference between the two, yet one has working page links, and one doesn't.
  9. Anyways I look at this, it's a lot of work. I hope Serif gets eBook export working, although I wonder how they will deal with these issues. I also think that you should be able to pin an image behind text. It doesn't seem like you should only be able to have images behind text when it isn't pinned. As for the hyperlinks, I only mentioned them because I can't use the same export settings as I do for POD printing services like IngramSpark, because they require PDF export settings that disallow hyperlinks. Since I need to center everything anyways, that's a small thing to worry about.
  10. I'm trying to format a PDF for creating an ebook. Compared to the print version I need two main differences. First, I need hyperlinks to work. Second, I need the text frames to be centered instead of closer to the outside of each page. If I change all the page masters so they're now centered, the images on the pages don't move with them, and I need to move them all manually, which is a ton of work, and I need to make sure they match the original exactly, or the index will be inaccurate. If I pin all the images, I run into two main problems. Full-page images don't always link to be pinned. First, they're being pinned to the text on the facing page, and sometime they oddly disappear. Let's say I manually fix the full-page images, there's still a major problem. Many of my images are the bottom layer of a page so I can get them closer to the text, and don't cover up the bottoms or tops of letters. If I pin the images, however, they are put into the text frame layer, and there doesn't seem to be a way to make it show up underneath the text. That means lots of letters are being covered up. So is there a way to both pin an image and have it show up under the text? or perhaps a better way to center all the pages for the ebook version? Thanks.
  11. Is there a way to find which pages in an APub document use a specific Master Page? I was trying to delete Master Pages I no longer use, and I got a warning saying it was used by some pages in my document, but it doesn't tell me which pages. How do I figure that out?
  12. Good idea to search for the text. It took me a while to get it to happen again, as I had fixed it in my work document by moving lots of stuff around. I can't say I understand where the text is exactly, however.
  13. When I increase the size of an image on my page, the text at the bottom of the page disappears, but doesn't show up on the next page. disappearing-text.mp4
