I've just spent over an hour trying to replicate the problem with dummy text, but of course it only happens when I'm using the real thing. 🙄 I'm trying to format a novel. At the beginning of each chapter, I want a "sink" (i.e., the text starting partway down the page). I've tried to do this in two different ways: 1) put a text frame on the actual page, Place the *.docx file, flow the text, and adjust the text frames manually at the start of each chapter; 2) make linked text frames in Master Pages (including one with a sink), Place the *.docx file on the actual page, flow the text, and apply the appropriate Master Page to the start of each chapter. That all works great... except that, sometimes, no matter which method I use, I run into a problem of duplicating text when the chapter starts on a left page. The bottom line of the left page is duplicated on the top of the right page. I can fix this by momentarily adjusting the text frame (this seems to snap the lines back into submission). So what's the problem? This change doesn't stay saved. I can go through my file and fix all the instances of duplicating lines and save the file. Everything looks fine. If I export it at that point, there aren't any problems. But if I save, close the file, and open it again, all the lines that I fixed are duplicated again. This is a huge time-waster, since it means I'll need to go through the whole book every time I want to export because I can't trust that my changes have been saved.
Hi I am used to using PagePlus 9 and use the book feature to stitch together many articles with photos from different authors and sources to make a school publication which is photo rich and can run to 90 pages plus at times. The articles arrive randomly over time and the ability to create chapters and then re-order and re-index is invaluable. Is the chapter feature available on Infinity Publisher?
