Working with Stacks 3


(William Neal Blanton) #1

Newbie questions

  1. I am working in the Voyager Theme in RW8 with Stacks3. I have created two columns. In Column 1 I have put Text. In Column 2, I have put an Image. I want to put a series of Images in Column 2. However, every time I try to put another Image stack in Column 2 under the present image, it doesn’t “take”, if that’s the right term. In any event, how do I put more than one image in Column 2?

  2. Column 1 has text I wrote in Pages. I put a Text stack in column 1 and pasted in the text in plain text. However, I cannot italicize any of the words. I mean, when I work on the text in the work mode, I do see the words italicized. However, when I switch to Preview, they’re gone.

Thanking you in advance. I’ll probably be asking you more newbie questions.

Item 1: You should have no problem dragging multiple image stacks into a column stack. You do have to wait for the blue line to appear when you drop the item:

Item 2:

Pages or any word processor is NOT web friendly. The pretty formatting that pages does is totally different than what any web product is expecting. You will need to copy the text from pages and paste as plain text:
menu> edit>pastes as plain textopt+comand+ v
Once you have the plain text pasted into the rapidweaver project you can format it with the format menu items or the buttons at the bottom of the screen.

Yes… it’s best to always use plain text. Then set needed bold, italic, lists, headings and such with the tools at the bottom of the edit window. Just like using “Styles” in Pages, you want your Theme to set your style attributes as much as possible.

Many thanks Greg. I thought I was doing exactly that. I’ll give it another try.
