  1. I am currently working on a simple tracing (getting back unto speed with designer) I wanted to save pen settings so i can quickly change to sizes with without arrows, tapered etc. I cannot see a way to save the settings so I thought i would use styles. I have found that by right clicking on a curve or using the hamburger in the styles menu I can only save one style in a catagory. I have done this before with 1.7 and my categories with multiple styles exist in 1.8.1. i have tried different ways but each time i create a category i can save a style but only one. MacBook Pro all latest versions and updates
  2. This works fine when creating a new document. But if you create a document then try to retrieve marging from printer using spread setup Document or master, it changes the values in the dialog box but not the spread. next time you go to margin setup they revert. Typing a margin size in manually works V1.7.2
  3. Definitley required as i only put images in image frames either on the page or on a master
  4. That also allows me to edit the frame not just contents, the contents were added to the page not the master, just into a picture frame inherited from the master. Also why can I by double clicki on on the image and get the slider to adjust position and scale within tne master frame and yet none of the other propperties work including the none issue. I looked at text frames and by double clicking in a Master created text frame I can edit the text, change its typeface and style/ size but not its colour using the context menu bar; yet i can via cange its colour using the swatches panelthe panels. There appears to be a lot of inconsistancies still when using Master pages
  5. I cannot say if it is similar or not to the text wrap issue, as I have not looked at text wrap yet. The main issue is the difference between manageing the content of a picture frame on a Master Page compared to a picture frame inserted directly on a Page. When Publisher goes live one of my first tasks involves a page or pages (hence master page workflow) that consists of images added consistently in location and size with little text just captions. So i want to be able to design the layout and adjust /scale the picture frame content quickly.
  6. fde101 sorry confused at relavence of your post, as my post has nothing to do with text wrap?
  7. From my tests I am also assuming the linked option still embeds, even though resource manager says linked
  8. To learn how to use pictures frames I first added a picture frame to a blank page and experimented with different ways of adding images and scaling. moving within the frame etc. Happy with how it worked. I then when on to add a picture frame to a Master Page, and the behavour was different. I have created a picture frame on a master page and then on a new page based on the master page I Placed a picture into the master frame. I then dbl clicked on the image went to Properties to select “Scale to Min fit”. I observed the following issues. 1. None stays selected as well as Scale to Min Fit option 2. Click on None and it deselects 3. Click on done and nothing happens 4. Reselect properties and None again selected. 5. The size slider bar adjusts the scale no problem. 6. Right click paste as content not available either Picture frame on a page works as expected
  9. Just answered my own question by accident. The Control key has to be pressed after you have clicked and started to drag
  10. Am I reading this correct press and hold the Control key then click and drag to chnage marquee behaviour on a mac. I hav tried it and Control Click is a right click on a mac so I get the context sensitive menu not marquee select.
  11. Is there a way of saving symbols like brushes, so if required the symbols could be loaded in. I sometimes annotate OS maps using the same symbol, or building plans again using a standard set of symbols. Currently, I use a standard file and then add the map etc, however, if I am sent a map file that has some information already on I have to try and copy etc.
  12. Thanks, now I remember I had set that earlier. That's the problem sometimes with playing with Beta's you change preferences forget about them. Then reset preferences, and have problems that are not problems As an addition would it be possible to implement different right and left drag marquee as some programs have. It is an option I find very useful when selecting overlapping layers. Right drag is enclosed selection, Left drag is partial selection
  13. Confused. I had a rectangle snapped to a guide. I could accidentally select the guide if I hovered over the guide/rectangle boundary. I also in another task wanted to move two guides so I tried to marquee select the guides and could not. After looking at other things I found that there is no partial marquee only full surround marquee. Am I missing something or is not marquee select not fully implemented yet?
  14. I have just had the same problem. I then closed the one of the text frame panels and ended up with a blank panel that would not close. I had to restart the program to remove it
