Hi

Just finished my first Publisher project - 250 pages full of text, photographs and documents - and about to send off to printers. However, when exporting to pdf I get preflight warning about overflowing text frames and missing linked resources or our-of-date items. Is there a way of working out what is missing or overflowing without going through and checking every text box or having to reimpose every images or linked resources. Help! Any advice gratefully received!

Otherwise absolutely loving Publisher.

Cheers,

Ian

To find out about the images go to DOCUMENT and at the bottom you will see RESOURCE MANAGER, this tells you which images need looking into.  As far as the text overflow is concerned I am not aware of any easy method to check this except by going through every text frame you have.  Although if you have linked text frames then the job is so much easier since you only need to lokk at the very last text frame in a given sequence of written block (over many pges that is) and the last frame will overflow.  Sorry I can not help you further.

Microsoft - Like entering your home and opening the stainless steel kitchen door, with a Popup: 'Do you really want to open this door'? Then looking for the dishwasher and finding it stored in the living room where you have to download a water supply from the app store, then you have to buy microsoft compliant soap, remove the carpet only to be told that it is glued to the floor.. Don't forget to make multiple copies of your front door key and post them to all who demand access to all the doors inside your home including the windows and outside shed.

Apple - Like entering your home and opening the oak framed Kitchen door and finding the dishwasher right in front you ready to be switched on, soap supplied, and water that comes through a water softener.  Ah the front door key is yours and it only needs to open the front door.

OK, this is kind of a pain in the butt... I guess some kind of preflight function is pretty high on the ToDo-list (please say it is so). Finding overflowing or overlapping text frames is quite a pain especially if you have hundreds of pages. As a long time Indesign user I put the preflight pretty high on the "really need this one" list.

@Ian Tasker Someone else shared this, but it is worth passing on. From the View menu, make sure you have Show Text Flow selected, and are NOT using Preview mode - this allows the red dots indicating overflow to show. Then select Zoom> Zoom to document.

The pages will be reduced in size, but the red over flow dots remain the same size, allowing you to easily see which pages have overflows, and an idea of location. You may also need to check the master pages.
