Cannot unpin text frame, or move pin location in Publisher Beta on Win11Pro

Recommended Posts

I'm running Publisher on Windows 11 Pro.

When you pin a text frame to a word in another text frame, you cannot unpin the second frame, and you cannot move the pin location. It is easy to reproduce: Create a new document, insert text frame and add some text, create a second frame and pin it to a word in the first frame. You now cannot move or remove the pin. I've tried with the "Float with text" toolbar button, and with the Pinning window. I have a document where I have pinned a multi-column text frame, and every time I click the Unpin button in the Pinning window, the font size of the pinned frame increase, as do the column insets and gutter size, but I could not reproduce that behavior in a simple example.

This bug is not present in 2.04.

I placed a picture frame in publisher and pinned it to a character but could not move the pin to a different character and could not undo the pin using the pinning panel.

Hi @gboothjr and welcome to the forums. In the 1709 beta, you cannot move or delete a pinned object of any type. Jon has stated that is logged so it should be fixed in an upcoming beta.
