  1. I used this single line example just so the selection box would be visible in a screen capture, in most cases I have more than one line of text in a box. I started by making a text frame with a stroke, as you mentioned, but I realized the text frame doesn't take effect as a paragraph style (for easily applying the same border over and over). Maybe I'm overlooking a way to apply a text frame border to a paragraph style? This possible bug I noted isn't a huge issue, but if the top of the selection box matched the other sides, then snapping would be uniform top-bottom-left-right.
  2. The left, right, and bottom of the blue selection line all align with a decoration border I've made for a paragraph style, but the top doesn't align (and therefore doesn't snap properly). Could this be a bug, or am I doing something wrong?

    Imported PDF Errors

    No, Publisher is not reporting any missing fonts for me. I'm using Sibelius here, not Finale. I suppose Sibelius isn't embedding the fonts? One thing that is interesting: if I print to file using "Microsoft print to PDF" instead of letting Sibelius generate the PDF on its own, the resulting PDF will be slightly different when pulled into Publisher. They will look the same in all other programs (without errors), and they'll both be messed up in Publisher, but messed up in slightly different ways. I suppose I could try a different print to PDF program, just don't have anything else installed currently.
  5. I'm having issues with Publisher with PDFs generated in Sibelius (some Sibelius PDFs, not most). Thread here. If it's not easy to fix this issue in Publisher, then it would be nice to have a "PDF pass-through" option. Of course being able to actually edit PDFs in Publisher is fantastic.
  6. I've been bringing sheet music PDFs into Publisher, and most seem to come out fine, however I've run into several recently which have errors -- notes and lines in the wrong place. It doesn't matter if I drag them into Publisher, or "place" them in Publisher, or even just open them in Publisher, the errors are always there and always the same. These PDFs primarily contain text and music fonts. I've attached one as an example. Basic Rhythms v2 - Full Score.pdf
  7. Publisher prompted me to update to latest version -- link downloaded 1.7.0.312. Installed. When running 1.7.0.312 it again prompts me to update to the latest version...
  8. Hmm, that's very strange. I'm almost positive the master pages were attached to the pages in the project as I remember specifically testing it by adding a seperate element to the master pages which took effect on the project's pages, but changing the page number format didn't take effect. But now when I try it the changes take effect as they should. I'll post back if I figure out how to reproduce it again.
  9. Yes, as garrettm30 mentioned there are workarounds, but it would be very nice (and logical) to avoid having to use Adobe or another non-Serif program for this. Plus, Acrobat is a mess.
  10. Anyway if this problem is due to the PDF printer, it would be nice if Publisher could simply export a PDF in booklet format, rather than having to "print" it. That would avoid relying on a seperate program to do this.
  11. I've got a project with page numbers setup in master pages. I made an adjustment to them, removing underlining from the # symbol in the master pages, but it didn't take effect on the project pages. I had to manually re-apply the master pages to each page in the project to get it to update. I assume that's not by design?

  13. Ah, I suppose the issue could be in the PDF printer -- I used "Microsoft print to PDF" (running Windows 10 here). Maybe it's junk? I hadn't used it before. I doubt the content of the project is part of the issue here, just a simple 4 page project with color JPEGs and black text written in Publisher (Document Setup set to RGB). In the print settings I'm choosing "U.S. Web Coated (SWOP) v2" as the profile.
  14. I ran into an issue with a booklet project (RGB) I was trying to turn into a PDF (CMYK). When I export the project as spreads or pages and choose a CMYK color profile, everything seems to work as expected. But when trying to "print" to PDF using the booklet formatting, the CMYK profile I selected doesn't seem to be taking effect -- the resulting PDF seems to still be RGB. I love that Publisher has the built in booklet formatting option, it was always buggy with InDesign. But perhaps it would make sense to include it in the export options? Anyway, any idea what might be going on with the color profile conversion not working with booklet formatting?
  15. That still doesn't seem to let me modify the color of all elements. It does let me choose which color space to import as, but I still can't get all the blacks in any PDFs to match the CMYK blacks in my Publisher project. Strange.
