Auto-linking breaking with staggered linking in master pages

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

Once again, thank you and congratulations for the master page functionality. It needs some polishing, but at least it's finally here.

Anyway, on to the issue at hand: I was curious to see how Publisher would handle two sets of columns with staggered linking (as in A-B, A-B, across the spread) for bilingual layouts, and I see it's not really managing it well at all.

If I don't touch the links the left-hand page will be empty, and if I relink them properly across the spread as they are in the master page, when adding new pages they won't relink across different spreads. I enclosed my super basic test file for you to play with. ;)

Hi @JGD try this blank. I tried with a couple of different text files and they loaded into their respective frames flowing for about 40 pages.

Side note; why do you have a page wide text frame on the Master pages as well as the narrow ones?

Thanks! I'll try that as soon as I have a bit more free time on my hands.

Well, I guess it was either auto-added or I was doing simples experiments with that layout before, and just forgot do delete it… :P
