Hello fellow DPS users,
I seem to have activated a weird bug with the Scrollable Text Frame but I hope I can solve it with your help.
I've tried everything I can think of already but without good success.
Here is the problem. I have a page that looks like this:
So this is how it should look like and how it does look like. The red square in the left upper corner with the white text is actually a scrollable text frame which you can pull down to get more text within a white square. The problem is, the text is above the red square and I want it to come down when you pull. So I can't set the "Initial Content Position" to "Upper Left". That's why I'm using "Use Document Position". But for it to show like I want (like in the image above) my InDesign document looks like this:
No problem, you think, I solved it. Well, not exactly. Since when I go to the real thing and test it, it initially looks good, but when I go into story view I get this:
So in story view it still shows the exact position like in the InDesign document... But in the page itself it does show well. The real problem though, is that it doesn't use the exact document position but apparantly 10 to 20 pixels below it. So it actually shows incorrectly in the page, and in story view it shows the real thing.
Can anyone help me? Is this a known issue or am I forgetting something?
Well here is an update: In stead of pulling the red square down and using the "Use Document Position" as a starting position, I tried pulling it up so I CAN use the "Upper Left" for starting position.
It works like a charm, but still I rather want to pull down. But now I at least know it's the "Use Document Position" that's not working correctly.
Anyone know a workaround? Or else Adobe can put it on their todo list
Another thing for Adobe Developers to put on their todo list if they happen to read this:
If you upload your own table of contents preview you cannot undo this.
And you cannot upload your own storyview previews.
Maybe for in the future
