alternate layout - copy text variables (just like styles to new group)
I had a job that was originally designed to be a PDF online in color. Then at the last minute, the client asked for a B&W version for print (to keep costs down). They still weren't done editing so I made an alternate layout and checked "copy styles to new group", then made all the color adjustments to those styles and the new B&W master pages. However, I had a running header in the original version. Well, the running header on the B&W version picked up the last section head from the color version, making the B&W version incorrect. I fixed it by making a new B&W version of the text variable and replacing it on the master page. It would be nice if, when making an alternate layout, if the text variables could be copied (and name appended) automatically.
