Table Of Contents - Edit Story - Small Arrows

Pagemaker 7.0.2

I generated a Table of Contents. In Edit Story, what is the small arrow
that appears at the beginning of each line and also right before the
page number?

In article < XXXX@XXXXX.COM >,



Story Editor displays the "invisible" characters like tabs, spaces,
returns, etc. The usual symbols are:

- small arrows to indicate tabs
- dots to indicate spaces
- ?to indicate carriage returns

You can turn these "invisible" characters off in the Preferences. Go to
File > Prefernces > General, then click on the More button and in the
middle section on the right side you'll see a preference option that
says "Display ?marks" (where ?is the 'backwards P' return character).
Turn that off and the small arrows, etc. will all disappear.

Note: Preference options are saved with the document, so even though
you turn them off in one document they will reappear when using other
documents (new or re-opened).

Yes, preferences are saved with a document if you have a document open
when you set them. However--and this is an extremely helpful and forward
thinking feature that PageMaker introduced early on--you can set many,
many preferences with no document open, then close PageMaker before
opening a document to set those preferences as your default. Basically,
run through the menus and palettes with no document open and anything
that is not disabled (grayed out) can be set as a persistent preference.

Yep. PageMaker's approach means you can have different Preference
set-ups for different purposes. I have no problem with PageMaker's
document-based preferences, I only really included that note so that
the original person wasn't surprised when the feature turned back on
when they opened another document.
