    Page Numbering

    The last time I saw something like that greyed our it was because I neede to make the change on a master page. Could that be it?
  2. I have a document with about fifty tables inline with the text. I can’t imagine being able to handle that without errors unless tables can be inline in the text. (Or am I missing something? Can tables be inline and anchored to text?)

    Span Columns

    I hate to post just to say "me too" but I would love to see this feature (paragraph style span columns). I use it a lot in InDesign and workarounds with additional text frames for headings can leave me with a lot of text frames to move around at odd times, and breaks the flow of the text. So +1 for this feature please!
  4. I tried to start from scratch and produce a document which also illustrated this behaviour and couldn't - so I binned the old document and started from scratch (I was only in the very early stages). Again, thanks for help to everyone for resolving this.
  5. Thanks - that video is very clear and for some reason I wasn't seeing that. Then inspiration struck! My text boxes are defined on the 'master' pages. That is why it is greyed out in the text popup and doesn't appear in the context toolbar. When I go and edit the master pages I can see the other things in the context toolbar including the columns chooser. So problem is solved. Well, nearly solved. I've turned the LH master page into two columns, but every time I attempt to turn the RH master into two columns it crashes the application hard! But that must be a different bug. Thanks for your help in getting to the bottom of my problem here.
  6. Hmm, I can't see it on the context toolbar - any chance you could upload a quick screengrab so I can see where I *should* be seeing it? Thanks!
  7. I already thought of that :-) I can't select the number (no matter what 'tool' I have selected, or whether the text frame is selected or not). If I'm missing something here, I'd be happy to be instructed!
  8. Thanks - I had a quick look and couldn't spot a report for it, but half-expected it to have been already spotted. Glad it is in the process! (Presumably until this is fixed there is no way of creating multi-column text areas?
  9. I opened the text panel to change a single column to multiple columns, and you can see that the 'preserve width' checkbox overlays the spinner control for columns. This doesn't allow me to modify the number of columns (as well as looking glitchy). Cheers Alex
  10. Alex White crashes on loading my file

    Wow, that's wonderfully quick work! I'll certainly keep an especially careful eye on steps I've taken should I see something similar happen again. Thanks!
  11. Alex White crashes on loading my file

    Thanks, I've just uploaded the file to that location. I'd been working on it in all the previous betas without any problems, but the last two have caused crashes on opening it. Hopefully it will be easy to spot why!
  12. I have had the same problem with build 192 and now with 206. I've attached the crash dump, and this is the headline information from it. Essentially as soon as I open the file that I've been working with in earlier betas, the application crashes as soon as it has displayed the current page in that file - the application terminates and disappears. The file is 50mb, and I'm happy to share it with you, but I'd prefer not to share it publicly.

  13. Thanks, I'll start a new thread so we can discuss this.

    keyboard paste not working

    Good news, I've been able to download and manually install it. Bad news, I can't do anything because every time it tries to open the file I've been working on it crashes hard. I've put a crash dump in the .206 thread.
