  1. John: I have a doc that's filled with (what are now) double paragraph breaks, and I wanted to replace them with single breaks. Is this similar to what you were doing? How'd you find the code to enter in the fields? I'm looking for that myself.
  2. I started a doc with master pages, added page numbers, then added front matter pages. I wanted to re-number the pages so that the heart of the doc still starts on page 1 rather than 5. Opened the Section Manager, which is supposed to allow me to control this, but the only fields I can change is the "Section Name" and "Number style." "Start on page" and "Restart page numbering at" seem to be just painted in - no functionality at this time. Am I correct?

    Nezumi: Sorry my post totally cheesed you off. Was it meant to? No. Am I a programmer? Actually, I was. Have a great day.
  4. Well, I'm laying out a book so. . . yeah, the format from page 1 is going to repeat. Which is why I attempted to put the text frames on the facing master pages. And yes, for now I can just create guides on the master pages where I want the frames to go, but the point is: it doesn't currently function the way I would logically think. "If I can put a text frame on the master page, and all other items I put on that master page are duplicated (like the page header and page numbering), then I can logically assume that the text frame will be duplicated and work like a text frame that I create once, manually." I guess my question is, will it eventually work the way I expect it to, or is my reasoning on the way it should work faulty?

    4: Some of my typefaces (in particular, Poor Richard) did not have options for bold/italics. I found a way to manually italicize the text, but not bold it. 5: Font sizes in AffPub were drastically different than PagePlus - I had several paragraphs of text I wanted to fit on the first page. In PP, I had to use 10.5 point, but in AffPub, I easily used 12 point to take up the same amount of room. Chris: Sorry, but I call BS on the whole philosophy behind the answer to #4. I used the exact same font in the document created in PagePlus 9, and was able to select the text and bold & italicize it. How difficult would it be to put that same functionality into this prog? Do you want to copy "all the other programs" or do you want to make one that's better? As my mother used to say, "If your friends jumped off a bridge, would you do it too?" I'm not trying to be a jerk, but the "it's not already there" excuse has already been blown out of the water by PP. As far as #5 goes, I totally screwed this up. I actually used different typefaces, which I didn't realize. By matching the faces, I was able to increase the size to 11 pt in the AffPub version.
  6. Yes, possibly. However, if you look at the video, I think the resolution is high enough to show I'm not getting the triangle symbol.
  7. This may be a bug, may be something that's changed or simply doesn't work the way I expect/want it to. Basically, if I create text frames on the master pages of a doc, I can paste into them on a doc, but I can't control the frames, get frames to spawn onto new pages, or even see the text if it's there. See the attached vid clip. AffPub_6x9_01.mp4
  8. Okay, so I re-created a 6 page doc in AffPub. The original was a 5 page doc in PagePlus. I exported the 5 pager as an X-1a PDF, then I used NXPowerLite 8 to shrink the size of the original PDF. It went from 8.1 MB down to 753k. I exported the 6 pager from AffPub. The first time I did it, AffPub didn't give me any choices for output. It created a 16+ mb file, which would not compress. The 2nd time I went in to export, a dialogue box showed up. I chose X-1a. That time it created a 4+ mb file, which I successfully shrank to 790k. I'm glad the options showed up the 2nd time, but just because I'm curious, what would it have chosen to make a 16 mb file that wouldn't compress?
  9. I actually just finished creating a new 5 page doc with Page Plus, so I decided to re-create it with AffPub. I realize it's early days, and I realize this is beta software. These are just things I noticed while re-creating this short, simple document. AffPub doesn't import .ppp docs Text/Insert could use a copyright symbol (I can't be the only one who wants that!) There's no Save icon on the menu, and no option of adding one that I could find Some of my typefaces (in particular, Poor Richard) did not have options for bold/italics. I found a way to manually italicize the text, but not bold it. Font sizes in AffPub were drastically different than PagePlus - I had several paragraphs of text I wanted to fit on the first page. In PP, I had to use 10.5 point, but in AffPub, I easily used 12 point to take up the same amount of room. I couldn't find "line spacing" anywhere under Character or Paragraph tabs I imported one section of text into a frame and added a title, which I manually styled. I created a new frame and imported another paragraph using "paste w/out format" and the whole paragraph was styled like the title. Shouldn't it forget that text style once I move away from that specific area? That's what I found in my first hour of playing with it. There were a couple funky things that happened when inserting a pic from a file which I couldn't duplicate, but I fixed it by using Picture Frames instead.
