Thanks for the info.

Yes, creating an empty structure was very handy. 
Esp. for duplicating structure many times.

Re: FM 8






Hi John,

there is indeed a difference in behaviour between FM 7 and FM 8. The 
behaviour you are describing occurs if the paragraphs don't contain any 
text (yet). So:

1.) Put some text in the paragraph below the one which you are going to 
delete. Delete the above paragraph. The next paragraph will keep its tag.

2.) Put some text in the paragraph before you press Enter. The next 
paragraph will get the tag which is in the Next Pgf Tag of the Paragraph 
Designer.

I also preferred the behaviour of FM 7. It allowed me to create a "blank" 
structure very quickly:
1.      Apply the paratag "topictitle" to a blank paragraph.
2.      Press ENTER to get a blank paragraph tagged "sectiontitle".
3.      Press ENTER to get a paragraph tagged "body".
4.      Write my body text.
5.      Fill in the sectiontitle and topictitle, depending on what I have 
written in the body text.
I doubt whether Adobe will consider this a bug and will therefore release 
a patch for it. 

Kind regards

Our company just upgraded to FM 8 from FM 7. 

I noticed strange "feature" behaviours. 

1.)  When I delete a paragraph, the paragraph below the deleted paragraph 
takes on the properties, the paragraph tag of the paragraph above the 
deleted paragraph. 
This is very annoying, and wastes a lot of extra time in having to 
re-apply a paragraph tag every time a paragraph is deleted! 

2.)  Even though a paragraph tag, universally applied, and not over-ridden 

has a Next Para Tag of a different one than itself, 
when we press Enter for the new paragraph, the next paragraph is not the 
one designated as the Next Para Tag, but the same para tag as the one we 
were on when Enter was pressed. 
This, too is most annoying and does not seem to be consistent.  For at 
times it does appear to work; however, I have not been able to nail down 
the conditions when it behaves as it should and when it does not. 

Any one know if a patch is coming out for these?
