  1. You click to select an object and proceed to dragging, with the same click. Less clicks, less fuss. Especially with small objects with which you always have the transform handles in the way.
  2. In many apps, when you press alt simultaneously as you click+drag an object, you get a duplicate. It's actually quite a widely spread standard. The best apps let you add that alt while dragging
  3. At the moment, Alt+drag duplicates, but alt+click does not select: you need to have the object first selected, then alt+drag. This is quite tedious dealing with small objects, with which the transform handles tend to get in the way. Please facilitate either immediate duplicating by alt+click -> drag without lifting mouse button, or by click+drag -> alt pressed while dragging. Keep up the good work!
  4. Soo… I trust making a PDF/X-3 document uses just the same settings that are available to us. Nothing hidden. So the convert to CMYK functionality is there, to be found, huh? Either that or the PDF/X-3 should produce just as flawed results. Right? EDIT: I checked, and specifying PDF/X-3 leaves colour space to “as document”. Useful? Not.
  5. Sorry. Was working last week with this file that had several master spreads and I had the publication issue n:o running on two of them. After changing the publication number I had to re-apply masters to all spreads for the changes to apply. But this week, when I tried to reproduce the issue, it was gone. So no “live specimen” for inspection here.
  6. Tried this app: http://zevrix.com/pdfcheckpoint.php – it converted MOST photos to CMYK, but not all. Which is as useless as not converting any. Enfocus trial gave me an eternal beach ball effect, maybe because I didn't have any Adobe software installed.
  7. My thinking exactly. The last I needed to preflight PDFs was when I worked in prepress…
  8. And these external editors seem …not less price-prohibitive than Acrobat…
  9. OK, so selecting the colour space in PDF options does …nothing? I thought it was, like, leave as is / convert to RGB / convert to CMYK. But maybe that is not what it does.
  10. Sent a magazine to printer, they said photos are in RGB. I had exported as PDF 1.4, CMYK, profiles attached. Sent another without profiles attached, hoping that makes a difference in their RIP. This is quite a hassle as now that I'm not paying Adobe anymore, I can't check or edit my PDFs in Acrobat either. or I could, by paying them like 15 eurobucks a month… Please tell me I don't have to revert to CMYK workflow again. That's so 90's. Or point me towards an affordable PDF editor allows me to check if my s**t is CMYK or RGB. Thanks for your shoulder.
  11. When you export a PDF with “Area: All Pages”, the next export returns you to the default area “All Spreads”. All the other settings carry over from the last export, but this doesn't. Which isn't good, if you have to reiterate in a hurry, as one tends to have to, in real life situations
  12. Right now, when you have a list paragraph right after another, the latter continues the sequence of the former, like: 1. yada yada 2. blah blah C. nag nag This logic is, at least to me, wrong, as the change of list type should automatically signal different sequence. I just can't imagine a situation where you'd want the sequence to carry over from numerical to alphabetical, so having to change levels or to create global lists to prevent this is more of a hassle. This is counterintuitive, especially when you just want to make quick lists locally without having to create list styles. So I suggest that you change the behaviour so that when the list type changes, the sequencing starts over. Either that or do it like Word does: handle all the consecutive paragraphs with the same list sequence as one list and change the numbering style to all paragraphs is one is changed. That is, IMHO, the inferior (Microsofty) way to do it. Love!
  13. No, the sequence is inherited from numericals to alphabeticals when the level is the same or “no change”. I made a sample now. sample.afpub
  14. Sorry mate, but no. Then it's another list altogether. You may have consecutive lists of different types and they all should start from 1 or A or whatever, not inherit the sequence of the former list.
  15. Did you guys really plan that every time one edits a text frame on a master the said master needs to be reapplied to pages before those changes reflect on them? Or is this just a bug? Tell me it's a bug.
