Text flowing from one page to another!
BookSmart

I agree with Tony, it should be an option the way it is in nearly every page layout application. If you want text to flow from one column to another, you simply link them. Whatever the default is is irrelevant, but you should have the option.

This is what is frustrating about software development these days, instead of getting the basics bulletproof, developers add features that look good in advertisements then these features hardly ever work as advertised.

Hey Michal, I just checked out your work and discovered that you’re from the Czech Republic. My grandparents emigrated from what was then Czechoslovakia in the early 1900s. You have a great eye and I enjoyed previewing your books.

I’m not interested in doing anything over 100 pages. I’m more interested in finding software that isn’t as “clunky” as Blurb. Maybe I expect too much.

After slugging it out for the past three days with this software, it leaves a LOT to be desired and text flowing where it isn’t wanted is just one of numerous annoyances one must suffer through.

I think I’ll do some checking around to see what else it out there. I’m committed with Blurb on this project but not the next.

How do I keep text from flowing from one page to another?

If this is something it does by default and can’t be changed I’d consider it a bug.

If it’s something I can override, please tell me how.

Thank you.
