Paragraph leading does not appear to be working in my documents.  For example, some paragraphs display with very large line spacing and changing the values in the Paragraph panel has no effect.

Any ideas?

Without having a sample file that demonstrates the problem it's hard to do anything but guess.

First guess: You have Baseline Grid enabled, and it's something to do with the interaction between leading and the grid.

Walt:

Thanks for your reply.  I believe the reason is more simple: I had a corrupted copy of Publisher.  I deleted it and started all over again and everything appears to work now.

Good to hear it's working, Jim.

Note that rather than uninstalling and reinstalling, a simpler approach is to hold the Ctrl key to perform a reset while starting the application. Press and hold Ctrl, then click on the application to start it. You'll get a special Reset dialog before the main dialog window appears. (On Windows you may need to click the application icon on the Task Bar.) You can select all the options and press Clear to do a full reset. Note that this will also delete any brushes you've installed or other items you've added (Assets, Styles, Text Styles, etc.).

Thanks for the help.  Most appears to be well now with two exceptions:

1) I cannot get text wrap settings to stick, neither Synchronize nor Save appear to work.

2) The footnote feature of PagePlus appears to have vanished.

1. Don't know anything about that; sorry.

2. Publisher is a totally different application from PagePlus. Nothing has vanished, it's just that footnotes haven't been implemented in the new application yet.

You're welcome.

If you think it's a bug, you can review/search the Publisher Bugs forums to see if you find a match, or post a topic of your own with more details (including screenshots, or movies) and a sample file that demonstrates the problem.

I may have seen something similar over there.

Hi Jim!  Used to live in Sunny San Diego (La Jolla) myself!  Miss the ocean and the sound of the Point Loma lighthouse on nights when the breeze was just right. Anyway.  The text wrap settings unfortunately cannot be synchronized and saved, even though Publisher HELP has stated that they can.  I have tried again recently and have posted this in the Publisher Bugs Forum.   For the present, each time you place an image you have to start from NONE.  It is a pain, but at least the wrap works beautifully!
