Hi all: FM 8.0, Windows XP.
A specific question here, but feel free to philosophize about the nature of disconnected and connected pages in general. I'm happy to learn. In my document, when I attempt to connect two text frames, I get a message that says "Ok to use a text frame that isn't visible?" SPECIFIC QUESTION(s) What does that message mean? GENERAL PHILOSOPHICAL MUSINGS How would I find a text frame that isn't visible? Why would I ever use a text frame that isn't visible? Why does FM use disconnected pages as the default? How come sometimes when I add a disconnected page, one of my figures jumps to the end of the document and the table ends up split between two other figures? Can a text frame within a text frame be connected to the text frame it's within? (I'm using white text to force a TOC entry -- the text frame is usually on its own page, but not in this case, so I cut and pasted the text frame into another text frame -- I guess I could have just typed the white text into the existing text frame. I didn't think of that until right now. Anyhow, I'd still like to know.) How come sometimes when I add rows to my table, FM automatically adds a new page, but other times, the new rows disappear until I add a page and connect it to the table page? Does it have anything to do with using Left / Right Master pages versus Custom Left and Custom Right master pages? I could go on, but I imagine you all have jobs you need to do. Sprightly yours, Deirdre
