Some Publisher Help Typos

Recommended Posts

I found some typos while reading Publisher Help:

About spreads

At document setup, you can use the Facing pages option to created your publication as spreads. Instead of working on single pages, you'll be working with a left (verso) and right (recto) page pairings displayed at the same time.

About master pages

Master pages act like templates, in that a master page can be shared by multiple publication pages. If you edit the master page at a later date, then all other pages will update to the new master page design instantly, although you can override master page content and design at any time.

To duplicate pages:

2. Click Duplicated Selected Pages or Duplicated Selected Master. The duplicate page is added after the originally selected page.

Another one!

About placing content

Once you've planned out your publication and added text to text frames, you can place addtional content image and document content.

This doesn’t sound right, either!

And another!

  • When placing a multi-page PDF document, you can choose which page you want to display by using Spread on the context toolbar. Only one page can ever be displayed although you sutimulate a spread by duplicating the placed PDF object and choosing a different Spread to view.

The phrase ‘a different spread’ shouldn’t have an initial capital on the word ‘spread’. Although ‘using Spread on the context toolbar’ is OK, I would prefer to see an initial capital on the word ‘Context’ (cf. ‘the View menu’).

Actually I think it is just awkward, we have to look at the entire sentence...

 but I will say no more on the subject as I have been down those rabbit holes too many times, and all to no avail.

the issue with that one is "a" ... "pairings" - this does not agree in number; "a" is singular but is connected to plural "pairings".  The "a" should most likely be removed.

"a" is referring to the two "page"s, it is awkward use and your solution is ... more elegant(?) so I will say no more and hope we get the typos fixed and the wording clearer.
