PUB2: Resize Handles on Frames Flash When Screen Redraws

PUB2: Resize Handles on Frames Flash When Screen Redraws


The information in this article applies to:

 - Microsoft Publisher for Windows, versions 2.0, 2.0a


If you have many tables or text frames selected when you change view
percentages, the resize handles of the selected frames may flash
wildly while the screen redraws. This may also occur if you copy and
paste many frames at once.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in Publisher versions 2.0 and
2.0a. This problem was corrected in Publisher version 3.0 for Windows 95.

Steps to Reproduce Problem

1. Create a small table (two rows by two columns).

2. Select and copy the table, and paste 20 or 25 duplicates of it on
   the page.

3. Select all the tables.

4. Press the F9 key to change the view percentage.

The resize handles will flash wildly for several seconds before the
screen redraws at the new view percentage.
