Deleting Column Break Changes Formatting

Jan 4, 2013 7:37 AM

When I do a search and replace of a Column break and replace it with a Frame break, the paragraph and character formatting of the line on the next page clear any formatting applied to it.

 

I'm using CS6

 

Any ideas on how to do this without effecting the formatting?

 

Thanks,

 

Peter

    You'd be better off controlling this in the paragraph style itself (Keep Options: Start Paragraph in Next Frame).

     

    But if you're already far into the layout and don't want to change that, try doing a search and replace where Column Break is replaced with both a paragraph return and a Frame Break (if there is currently no return before the Column Break).

    Showing text threads might help understand it better.

     

    Also, if this content originated as Word, there may be gremlins in the converted/imported/placed text. You might try, on a copy of the file, exporting as IDML and opening the IDML as an InDesign file.

    It's still a little vague to me... If the frame break is in the midst of a line of text, then:

     

    * Is there a reason the end of the current card's content doesn't end with a paragraph return?

     

    * Is there a reason the start of the next card's paragraph style doesn't have the start in new frame/colum/page property?

    I'm not sure why each frame/card's content won't be controlled properly with the start in new frame/column/page property, rather than needing a break character.

     

    As to imposition issues, there are folks on this forum far more experienced than I am, in strategies for this.

    Yes, because the cards are done in a single format, for proofing and viewing and before going to the printer they are put into a file that's setup 100-up. And without the Frame Breaks the cards won't show up in all 100 boxes.

     

    Unless there's a way to take the single cards and imposition them to 100-up in the proper orientation. 100-up Fronts and 100-up Backs.

     

    Thanks!
