Added another tutorial for Working With Pictures.

Inserting multiple images, using picture frames, adding frame borders, and creating custom borders.

Default Re: Learning Assets

Dear Bhikkhu Pesala, you have been so nice to help me more times, therefore I will ask you once more. Can you tell me where I can have a COMPLETE lesson about using the assets.
I really do not understand the technique behind the assets and can not find out how I use them. I've studied manuals, help and much more but can still not understand what happens. Kind regards, HolgerF

It is something that needs explaining better. Perhaps Serif™ should add a video tutorial for this topic. I prefer the Media Bar and Gallery tabs of X5.

The concept is to make it possible to link assets to specific documents or templates rather than showing them for all documents. It is more powerful in theory, but more complex in practice, and is the basis for more bugs.

I don't have time now to do a comprehensive tutorial. It would take a lot of effort to master this new feature that I don't use myself. I will leave it to someone else to do if they appreciate its benefits.

Working With Indexes
I have added another tutorial on Working With Indexes

Adding multiple entries, Locating and Editing Entries, Adding an Index of Proper Names, Formatting Index Entries using Find and Replace with RegEx.

Please post any questions on Regular Expression in the thread that I created for that purpose.

Default Re: Some Advanced Tutorials

I have added to the tutorial for Working With Pictures.

There are often questions on the forum about image file size, resolution, and quality. There are numerous ways to resize images within PagePlus, so I have attempted to clarify the difference between image dimensions, resolution, file size, and quality, and shown the alternative methods to achieve the desired result: by dragging, using Picture properties, Size and resolution, Convert to picture, Export as picture, and Export from the Resource Manager.

If you're referring to the grid-fitting tutorial, then I recommend using 120% percentage point size to make calculations simpler. If the font needs more spacing, then use 130% or whatever you think works best. Either way, its easier than using single line spacing, which varies for each type face and usually is not an integer, e.g. single line-spacing for 10pt Times News Roman is 11.494, not 12 point.

If your question is not related to my tutorials, then please ask in the PagePlus forum as usual.

Any chance of a tutorial on how to create and add page setup formats to the system... especially Avery labels? X6 only comes with 24 defined labels (by number) and they have at least 100 formats. I would like to be able to build these and put them in to use when starting a new publication.

Just use File, Save as Template, then use Start New Publication, My Templates from the Startup Wizard.

The Tutorials were all updated for PagePlus X7. Let me know about broken links or other obvious errors.

Please start a new thread in the PagePlus forum, selecting your program version, if you have any questions.

For the first time, I was able to see your Custom_Borders.ppp without any problem! Previous versions didn't show many borders in my current configuration, either X5 or X6.
Thank you very much for your effort.
