Multiple Convert Text to Boxes in QXP2017?

Postby Jiri Melnicky » 02 Apr 2017, 14:18

Why is the "Convert Text to Boxes" limited to one text frame? It's frustrating. Version 9 of converting multiple text frames at once. Will this feature again in version QuarkXPress2017?

Hi Jiri,

maybe because one of your boxes is locked?

Assuming that you are on Mac and using QX2016:
I just tried it in QuarkXPress 2016 and I can convert several text boxes to bezier curves.

Thanks
Matthias

Hi Jiri,

yes, it seems that unfortunately QuarkXPress Windows has a bug there. We'll see whether we can fix it in the next update.

Thanks
Matthias
