Text Frame > Hide Overflow + master page frame bug


Recommended Posts

With Publisher 2.0.3 for macOS:

  1. Create a new facing pages document with 1 page
  2. Draw a small text frame on both sides of the master and link them together - ensure Text Frame > Hide Overflow is on for these frames
  3. Go to page 1 and type into the frame - type more text than will fit and Publisher will show the overflow even though Hide Overflow is checked.
  4. Toggle Hide Overflow off and back on to fix the problem

The problem will not occur if you just draw a frame on the right master, or if you draw the left frame but don't link it to the right frame. I've attached a document with two tiny linked frames for testing but this isn't document specific.

I see that on Windows, too.

Mike, I have text frames on right and left side of the two-page spread Master Page, but I have no idea how to link them. (I didn't see the option in Spread Properties.) When I import text onto recto page 1, it flows onto pages 3, 5, 7, and 9, but pages 2, 4, 6, and 8 have no text flow. I cannot find anything in Help to show me how to "link text frames." I have the same problem whether I'm using copy and paste to import text, or if I'm importing a PDF or .DOCX file using the Place function.

This problem also occurs if I have the text frame on only the right side or the left side of the Master Page. Spread Properties are set as Facing pages.

FWIW, I didn't have this problem with Version 1. How do I link text frames so both recto and verso pages are included in Auto Flow?

On the Master Page:

  1. Click the lower-right linking triangle on the left page's Text Frame.
  2. Click the right page's Text Frame.

(Basically, the same way you'd link any two Text Frames. And note that you do it before you add text to the document pages, or at least before you reflow that text.)
