Frame to pdf bookmark problem

2007-06-13 Thread Mark Southee
I've started to get a strange problem when printing to pdf from some newly created files. I've got a Chapter Title paragraph style - Chapter:TitleBook, and a Heading one style - Head:1Book I have the pdf settings so the Head:1Book tags are indented once from the Chapter:TitleBook. However the

Fred, it doesn't seem as straight forward as that. It only seems to affect the first file in the book structure. I created 2 identical files (all with the same text flows and connections). Whichever file was at the top of the book structure, the problem as I described occurred, but only for that

Hi all, I know some of you guys do indexing a lot. I have been asked to quote doing an index in Pagemaker (sorry). There are 1300 terms that are to be listed in the index. In Pagemaker, as in Framemaker, I would need to add an index entry for each instance of the term in a 300 page book. I have

As others have noted, it is not possible to use system variables within user variables, nor is it possible to define additional new system variables. But I have to say that I really don’t see that what you are trying to do provides that much utility. Globally updating a regular user variable

Frame to pdf bookmark problem

A similar question was asked and answered on-list last week. The most common cause of the behavior you describe is when the chapter title is in a separate frame that is not properly connected to the frame(s) for the main text flow. Check your master pages. -Original Message- From:
