Converting documents to use new master-page functionality

Recommended Posts

 

I have about fifteen Publisher documents created with old betas. The newer betas provide greater master-page functionality than the old betas did. Is there an obviously sensible (and future-proof) way to convert my old documents to use the new functionality. Should I create a new "template" document and apply it to the content of each old document, one at a time? My documents are relatively short, no more than ten pages each.

Thanks for any advice or suggestions.

As far as I know this area of Publisher is still work in progress so I don't think that anyone can suggest a design that is future-proof.

What you should do, though, is to keep all your documents up to date as regards to the latest Publisher beta so that if you need to make changes or update your documents at least you can open them.

Thanks. I had sort of assumed that newer betas are designed to be able to open older files without any "translation errors." I had also assumed that even if this functionality was intended, it might not always work! So yes, I have been keeping the documents "up to date" (so to speak).

Thanks again.
