Using Macros in Publisher

Recommended Posts

Still trying to optimize my workflows with Publisher. Now, I'm trying to simplify the localization of my books. I'm almost there, but a few things are missing. The good news is that I can actually use Photo's Macros on Publisher's pages in the Photo Persona, so even if Macros haven't been implemented yet in Publisher, I can still find a workaround. The bad news (so far) is that I haven't found a way to use Photo's Macros in all the pages at once. Each time I use a macro on a double page for example, I have then to go to the next double page, then select the Move tool and click in an empty part of the workspace so that the layers' page are visible, and then use the same macro again. So my question is: Is there a way to use the same macro on all the pages of a document at once?

I don't think there's any way to apply a macro globally like you want.

I'm a bit puzzled by your comment about having to use the Move Tool, etc. Why not just navigate using the page navigator down at the left side of the Status bar?

Ah, I hadn't seen the page Navigator. I'll try it next time, thanks.
