  1. Ok, here's the scenario for which I am looking for a solution: I am busy layouting a book. I have my text frames all connected from page 1-x. and one large text filling the frames, making up the book. I allocate master pages when new chapters start. New chapters are also new sections, from which I grab the name to fill the <SECTION NAME> variable which shows up at the top of each right-hand page. So far so good. Now if for whatever formatting reason the length of the text changes (images, formatting, spacing), the master pages "move", messing it all up. If I disconnect the text frames between two chapters, the text flow gets interrupted. It stops with that frame, emptying all those frames that were previously filled on the subsequent pages. So... am I'm thinking out loud here... the only solution is to split the text by chapter, rather than having it flow from chapter 1-x. Only when the text is split I can probably add new pages after a "chapter", leaving the other pages untouched. I did that to try it out, and it indeed inserted hundreds of pages after the last "frame". SUMMARY (and I stand corrected if you have a better solution): IF you edit a book with many chapters, DO NOT throw it all into one text-flow from beginning to end. Rather start new text flows at the beginning of each chapter, because that leaves the master pages intact, should you add new text to one chapter or change the formatting requiring more space/pages. Looking forward to your ideas/experiences. Helmar
  2. Current state: There is no logical link between text styles and master pages. If the page flow changes for whatever reasons, the entire structure of master pages gets messed up and needs to be redone. My suggestion: Link the a text style to a master page. Example: if this text style is chosen, apply the following master page to the page where the style resides. This would make setting up documents so much easier and more intuitive. Link master pages to each other. Example: if page 149 (right page) is Master A, make page 150 (left page) Master B. Then make page 151 (right page) Master C.

  3. How do I know which page is about what in the pages panel? Creating sections does not visualize them on the panel. If I have a long list of pages, how do I know which one is which in thumbnails unless I scroll all the way down?
  4. Hello, everyone, In the drafting of documents with multiple sections would be nice to have the opportunity to highlight these differences with different colours for the text of headings1, 2 ... of each section, these differences in colours of the text should be reflected in the ToC. Example: Section 1 - heading 1 text blue - heading 2 text blue Section 2 - heading 1 text red - heading 2 text red ToC should reflect the different colours to highlight the different Sections to make it easier to read or search for a specific content. Thanks & Ciao
  5. Publisher 1.7.1 on MacOS 10.9.5. Apple TrackPad. No joy with new or old document. Follow exact procedure portrayed in Sections Tutorial : dbl-click on Field name in Fields panel. No options shown in Text/Insert/Fields menu other than page, next frame and previous frame number. Must also add that for book production, hierarchical sections are very highly desirable, allowing display of both chapter and section title in header. Rank almost as highly as need for foot/endnotes.
  6. Working in InDesign for many years I am acquainted with Sections, Page Numbering, etc. I have worked in AffPub since the beta appeared and now in 1.7.1. What I have always wanted is a way to see my various Sections in the Layers panel so that I could easily go to a section and have the pages of that section appear under the section title. Is this possible? I do not see this in the Section Manager panel where I create and edit my various sections, nor have I found it related to my master pages panel, nor do I see it in the Navigator panel which appears to only change the current page. If possible combining Sections and Pages would allow easy navigation within a large document with numerous sections. Perhaps I am missing something, but as yet I have not found this possibility. Even a "Go To" button in the Sections Manager would be a big help.
  7. I'd like to reallocate a different set of pages to each section using the Section Manager, is there a way of doing this in the Beta? John
  8. Impressive at first look for a first beta. I come from QuarkXPress and I find AP intuitive. • Projects – What if you have several related files (stationery, brochure, etc.) and you want to them to share resources and formatting. If you add another item to the project, such as a booklet, could you pick up the resources and formatting? • Long documents – Sections, etc. How to handle long documents. • Issues – Publications with several locations, etc. Maybe ads change from region to region. • External copy editing while layout is being worked on. Could a text editor be used to edit placed text and have it update on the page geometry? • Versioning – is that Save History? Can you revert to a previous version. • Step and Repeat – Such as 4 across and 8 down, duplicate. • Repurposing – eBooks, web, etc. I am writing a book using Scrivener. I want to do my own layout, since I have a graphics and printing background and have been hoping AP will be ready by the time I am ready to layout my book. Scrivener recently included an option to output to software called Vellum.
  9. Hello, I am working on a project right now and I have created a document in size of 22*28 inches. However, in order to print it, I will need to print it on 8.5*11 inch paper. I have made guides that divide the document across exactly where I need to print each individual sheet, and I am pasting it onto a poster so I do not need to worry about overlap. Can someone please help me figure out how to create the individual sections? I have a picture of my document here: https://goo.gl/photos/z2eijf8dB8w1WMbW8 Thank you for all your help!
