Has anyone had problems with hidden text in a structured document?

I was working on a structured document that contains text, figures and tables.
The document had a valid structure and the pages looked fine. When we looked
closer at the document we discovered that there was text in front of a figure
that was missing. I checked the element in the structure view, but it did not
appear on the page itself. I found the text hidden behind the figure, the lines
was on top of each other. The only solution that worked was to set the element for
the figur across both columns.

What causes this and what can we do to avoid this?
We must be able to rely on the tools we use. I have talked to other users of
FrameMaker 11. They knew about the issue but had not had this problem for a long
time. Is this a known bug in other versions of FrameMaker?

Hi,

I have FM 13, unstructured documents.

I have a layout with two balanced columns. Sometimes I get a similar effect that text gets hidden.

In my case sometimes this text is just not visible, sometimes several lines are on top of each other.

When this happens, the main text frame has the Overflow property set. This means that at the bottom of the main text frame the dotted border is changed to a solid border.

Usually the cause is that a paragraph is set manually to start on the top of the next column, and FrameMaker cannot resolve this.

When I find the manual break and apply "Wherever it Fits", then all is well.

To get my correct column break, I have to add empty paragraphs. Not very elegant.

Best regards

Winfried
