    Default MicroPress 8.3 - Can't mergefiles with tabs in them.

    Books with tabs are often built in section and merged at the last minute before printing. We upgraded to 8.3 from 8.1 last week. As soon as a job has a tab inserted in it a number of functions are greyed out in the Job menu including merge. The files are not offered in the merge build list.

    Default MicroPress 8.3 - Can't merge files with tabs in them

    Hello,
    In an effort to ensure that the tab order stays correct, merging jobs with tabs is not allowed. MicroPress version 8.3 does have a convert to page feature, in True Edit, that you could use to convert the tab pages to regular pages and then after the merge you could use Tab Builder to restore the tabs.

    You can also drag and drop the pages from one tab job into the main document which may be easier.
    Open both documents in True Edit and position them side by side (shortcut - right click the menu item and select tile vertically), then select all the pages from the document you want to merge into the main document. Save the main document.

    Hope this information helps.

    Thanks,
    MicroPress Technical Support

    Default Micropress 8.3 release notes

    Thanks Rich,

    Is there a document with release notes for 8.3, 8.2 to learn what changed? We came from 8.1.

    Thanks,
    George
