Summary0016112: Feature for Book Spline
DescriptionI wish that there were an assignable attribute for two of the pages in the document that would identify those two pages as the "Front Cover" and the "Back Cover" and that it would automatically calculate the proper size for the spline based upon the weight of the pages in the book and the number of those pages, with some sort of re-calc button for updating the spline object. The spline object should also default to text that is pre-rotated, like most spline text. It would be really nice if the two pages for the cover were the first two pages in the book, but behind the scenes, during export, the back cover was moved to the end! This would make the cover design much easier! And for example, the Front Cover could be used to attach the Spline Object. This would also solve the problem that if pages are inserted anywhere except at the end of the document, the default "Text Box" is NOT inserted into each page!
