Page navigation not working

Recommended Posts

Using beta 1.7.0.128.

There may be other paths to reproduce this, but here's the one I found.

1) Create a new document. Mine was a letter-sized, portrait-oriented document.

2) Click the "Add Page" button. When the dialog comes up, specify adding 4 pages after page 1.

3) Choose Page 1 in the page navigation list on the left.

4) Click the image insertion tool. Choose an image. Click on the page itself to insert it.

5) Unexpected behavior: The image is inserted onto page 2, not page one. At this point, clicking any of the pages in the page list on the left will change which page is highlighted, but will not change which page is actually shown. The page with your newly inserted image will remain displayed, and will remain the active page for any other things you add.

6) Further messing around...if you right-click on any page on the left and choose to delete it, the currently displayed page will finally change, to whatever page followed the deleted page. But then that page remains stuck as the one you're working with, and the same problem persists (inability to change the active page by clicking on different pages on the left).

Just a guess...

You need to click on a page in the Pages panel twice to select it. You probably only clicked once.

I've found that confusing at times.

Okay...but then what's the point of the blue highlighting square that goes around the page you select with a single-click? That is a pretty strong visual indicator of which page is the current one. There does appear, looking closely, to be a much less visible gray square which appears most of the time around the actually displayed page, but I never even noticed that before now because the blue selector is so much more apparent and looks like something that would tell me which page I'm looking at.

Good question. I've no idea.

A simple click selects the page without displaying the content. In this way, you can select one or more pages to move, for example.
I would also like to see a different color scheme.
