Liquid layout is pointless?

May 15, 2012 7:47 AM

So I'm testing out CS6 and liquid layout is coming in very handy


UNTIL we come to the import stage in the folio builder panel...


the only work around I can see is either using the add function ( for a large issue would be ridiculous and would INCREASE work load )


or creating all the alternate layouts - so iPad V+H within one doc, duplicating all the stacks, then going into the indesign doc, deleting the alternate layout and saving as either V/H then doing the same in the duplicated stacks and then re combining the stacks so V+H sat within their corresponding _stack folder


or am I missing something here?


because it seems the USP for CS6 isn't quite as up to scratch as me and many others expected?

    I'm finding the same problem, Tim. If I create an InDesign CS6 article with V and H layouts and name the file myarticle.indd, the Folio Builder refuses to allow me to import the article. I can add the article when it's open in InDesign CS6, but importing throws up an error that reads "Content Generation Error: The folder "MyArticle" is invalid for import." What's going on here?

    Importing InDesign documents with CS6 alternate layouts included isn't supported with the current version of the Folio Builder tools, unfortunately. I agree, it would help quite a bit to have it.
