Freehand hides text! On screen and on printouts! - Macromedia Freehand

    I watch this problem since Freehand 9. It still appears in MX 11.0.2, OSX
    10.3.3.

    The problem is not yet completely reproduceable. Sometimes it will do to
    refresh your screen and it happens.
    Since MX the workaround does not work anymore: Select all in the doent,
    move selection, Command+Z

    Hery you can find screen shots with descriptions and a file of evidence in
    FreehandMX format and Freehand9 format:

    I will "upgrade" to Adobe InDesign also for smaller projects.

    Funny you mention that. We had to run a correction last week because
    Freehand hid some text on me. It wasn't a run-around -- though I've
    noticed disappearing text with that before -- but a multi-column text
    box. I might just have to go with with single column, linked text boxes
    from now on (because of that and because editing text gets so darned
    difficult.)

    same issues in PC fh9,MX too. also cannot tell how to reproduce it. just when working quite a while with text and objects with text wrap applied.

    "I will "upgrade" to Adobe InDesign also for smaller projects."

    Speaking of hidden text...

    When you do, please join with me in bombarding Adobe with requests to add
    the simple ability to set a text object to auto-expand vertically in both
    InD and in AI. Man, I miss FH's text object handles when I'm working in
    other programs!

    I mean, this IS 2004. Why isn't this feature as commonplace as red clay in
    Georgia? AI's goofy "Point Text" vs. "Area Text" drives me nuts.

    At least it's not as goofy as CorelDraw's "Artistic" _vs_ "Paragraph"
    text: be grateful for small mercies!
