Here are some useful articles which I linked to in the appropriate help topics. Special thanks to Keith Gilbert and Johannes Henseler in particular for creating great content.

Hiding the Scrollbar of a Scrollable Frame (Johannes Henseler) – When you create a scrollable frame, a scrollbar appears when the customer begins scrolling. But you don’t always want the scrollbar to appear. Johannes provides a workaround to hide the scrollbar.

  2. I need help with the Foilio Builder. I have read the Adobe docs updates through 11/15 and it still says I should be able to load horizontal and vertical layouts in an “article.” (formerly a Stack!) Is there new info on this? Mine will only load a horizontal. I’ve just updated everything and plan to buy a single app license for our school magazine to be published in December. I can really use current info.
