Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Troubleshooting with the Story Editor, part of InDesign CS3 Long Documents.
The strange case of the missing text. I'm in the document story_troubleshoot.indd,…which is in the Story Editor folder and I have text placed on my page but it's disappeared. What's the problem?…I have my overset text icon down here so you will see that if I try and flow that text either onto my pasteboard …or onto a new page, Apple+Shift+P or Ctrl+Shift+P to create a new page,…then no matter what I do, my text is not going to show up. This is a case for the Story Editor and getting under the hood…and figuring out what's going on with the text. So, I'll go to Edit in Story Editor where we see the nature of the problem.…
I've just got a very long headline and InDesign doesn't know what to do with it.…It doesn't know how to break it; the text size is too big. It can't fit it. It's causing everything to be overset…and that's what that red line indicates in the Story Editor. That means overset text. But we can still get to the overset text here…and if we can get to it, we can fix it. And I'm going to use the technique that we saw in the earlier movie…
