    how to record a macro in publisher?

    Greetings,

    I am looking everywhere, but i cannot find a useful way to record a
    macro in publisher.

    My goal is to try to catch what kind of "code" is using publisher to
    perform a "distributed text" on a selected paragraph and try to do the
    same on Word.

    Word has a similar function "distributed text" but is not working nicely
    (the last line of the paragraph should not be distributed, word does).

    Did anyone else encounter this kind of issue? Is there any solution?

    Thank you in advance.

    Did you try Word's macro recorder?
     

    Have you ended the paragraph with a hard return (paragraph mark) or soft
    return (line break)?

    Are you setting the paragraph format to Justify?

    I had that feeling, but i thought i was not smart enough to find it.

     

    Yes I did, but as i've said, Word's "distributed text" task does not
    work so good like Publisher's does.

     

    I tried both ways without a good result.

     

    No, i'm trying to set the paragraph to "distributed" (CTRL+SHIFT+J).
    Justify expands the space between the words,
    Distributed expands the space between every char (letters and spaces).

    Thank you for your interest in this matter.

    In each program you can only use the functionality that is available in
    that program. You can't add functionality from one program to another
    simply by using the VBA calls from the first program in the second.

    This means i should give up and don't use the "distributed text" in Word
    anymore.


    what a pity.
