Pagestream 5.0.5.8 demo for Mac OSX (under OS X 10.6.5)


THE BUG: The incorrect next frame page # is picked up when the jump line is moved below the halfway point of the article. Likewise, the incorrect previous frame page # is picked when the jump line is in the upper half of the article. When the jump line with "next frame page #" is placed too near a neighboring article, it picks up that frame's next page number instead. That is, when "next frame page #" moves below the halfway mark of the article it applies to, it picks up the next frame page # from the article below it. Similarly for the "previous frame page #", when it is above the halfway point of its applicable article/frame number, it picks up the "previous frame page #" from the article above it, and doesn't pick up the correct "previous frame page #" of its respective frame until the jump line is moved below the halfway point of the article it applies to.

TO DUPLICATE: Create a multi-page sample document with 2-column text in an article that occupies the upper half of page 1 and continues on page 2, and 2-column text in an article that occupies the lower half of page 1 and continues on page 3. Import text into each article that spills over into its linked text frames on subsequent pages. Create a text frame to hold the jump line. Type "Cont'd on page <#>" where <#> is inserted via menu item "Type/[next|previous] frame page number". Place the jump-line box at the upper right of the upper article on page 1. It will have the correct page number. Select the jump-line text frame with the object tool, and move it to a point just above the halfway mark of the article. The jump-line page # is still correct; but move it beyond the half way mark and it will pick up the next frame page # of the article on the bottom half of the page.
