  1. A year later, and still nothing has happened in Serif development. Sad. The missing display of frames with content is atrocious!
  2. It should be standard, without a checkbox. Like the Ellipse Tool. That would save a lot of questions in the forum. Thanks for your answer, I did not know that!
  3. How crazy is the Elliptical Marquee Tool? It extends centrally when not using a key (cmd, ctrl, shift, alt …). Please change that, it's nonsensical. Top left is standard.
  4. I can' t remember that I unlinked anything, many thanks for pointing this out. The layout is just a draft, I'll just set it again, with more attention.
  5. @walt.farrell I sent you a message, I can't post the layout due to copyright issues of the images.
  6. Here are screenshots: Master Page / Pages, layers of the master pages, and the layers of the content page: The first layout, everything looks fine to me: The second layout, you see the two shifted layers in the page's layers palette over the master Outside-1.
  7. I have created two master pages with identical layers (names). The layers are in the same order, everything is identical. On page 1 I added the content, text and photos. In the Page Layers palette I have then a layer group with the name of the master page 1. Everything is fine so far. When I drag Master Page 2 onto my page, I get the following message: To preserve frame content one or more objects were detached from the old master and placed on the document layer. In the Page Layers palette, two of the layers are now above the layer group that has the name of the second master page. Why are layers being moved, what do I do wrong?
  8. Once again to the Data Merge Layout Tool. I try again with a screenshot: If or else would skip these blank lines blank space between items due to fixed size inflexible fixed sizes This is how it should look reasonable if you don't have to use the Data Merge Layout Tool. Simple with character and paragraph styles:
  9. I have Helvetica Now Variable, am sad I can't use it. Make an effort
  10. Sorry, I can't learn that all the apps in one board. Of course, I meant the Publisher. This is exactly what I was looking for. My example might look like yours. Thanks for your great help!
  11. Are multiple font weights possible in a paragraph style? Separated by a character, a Tab? Text bold (Tab right-aligned) (Tab left-aligned) Text regular Up to the Tab take character style Bold, after that character style Regular to the end of the paragraph.
  12. I'm sorry, but I can't understand the need for the Data Merge Layout Tool??? Why I can't just run line after line in paragraphs, without this tool? Let's say I have events. I have fixed dates, like time, price, but I also have floating text which is always different in length, and some dates do not exist. So how do I know how much data will fit on a page with flexible data? That does not work, or I have blank space between events, or overflow in-between events. The Data Merge Layout Tool handicaps. Thinking outside the box: A flexible way to work is with InData / Xdata from Em Software. You work in a text frame, set the character of the columns a, b, c, d, and so on. You do your paragraph and character styles, and the layout is ready for going. By Generate the pages will built up fully formatted with your styles, page by page. Spacing is done by paragraph styles. A simple example how cool Em Software it does: «if a is not empty»«a» «endif»«if b is not empty»«b»«endif» «if c is not empty»Overview «c» «endif»«if d is not empty»«d» «endif»«if e is not empty»Date «e» «endif»«if f is not empty»Location «f» «endif» A lot of text for a simple wish: Please enable "Generate" in continuous text, paragraph by paragraph – without the Data Merge Layout Tool! PS: If or else would also be cool for Data Merge.
  13. Great, thank you! So I have to add it manually. If you know, it works.
  14. Sorry, I just edit my post. There is nothing below the Node Tool, next is the the round corner tool. Is missing, exists only in the help
  15. Am I blind, I can't find the offset tool? The help page: Tool shortcut key: O. Nothing happens when I select the O. There is no "offset tool" entry in the menu, not in the windows, and not below the Node Tool. Am I blind, where is the tool?
