  1. @R C-R In my original example I was snapping to the grid, but without it, you're correct, the snap settings don't appear to work. I've tried Align to nodes of selected curves on the context toolbar, also Snap to object bounding boxes, Snap to shape key points and Snap to object geometry under snapping options. None of these work but dragging out a horizontal guide and snapping to that is a workaround. Do we think this is a bug? I thought Snap to shape key points should probably work, as we are using the point transform tool.
  2. @Joachim_L No apology necessary. Many thanks again for your help - very neat solution.
  3. @GarryP Thanks for the CTRL tip - that one had me confused for a minute until I Googled it. I even tried pressing S + T + R + G and dragging :-D
  4. @carl123 You're correct - it is nested under the Node Tool. I just reset the program defaults to double check.
  5. I have a problem which I feel sure must have a very simple solution but for all my efforts, I can't find it. Referring to the image, I have a non-vertical line which I simply want to rotate and snap to the horizontal axis ( shown in red ). I've moved the rotation centre but can't figure out how to snap it to the horizontal position. I can use the node tool but this doesn't preserve the length. Any help would be much appreciated.
  6. @Hilltop Thanks for the reply - I appreciate you taking the time. Why would anyone want this behaviour? It's called a 'first draft' Unfortunately I'm not blessed with your ability to place everything perfectly and purposefully the first time. For the benefit of others who might be reading this thread, the solution in my case involved a combination of text wrap settings ( specifically Jump ) and pinning objects to their required position within the text. Pinning is explained here : https://affinity.serif.com/en-gb/tutorials/publisher/desktop/video/337296999
  7. Hi, If I have a document containing lots of different elements ( text frames, images, tables etc ) and I want to insert another table ( for example ) in to the middle of the document, do I have to move all the subsequent elements manually to make room, or can it be set up so these subsequent elements shift further down the document automatically to accommodate the new table, creating additional pages where necessary? I hope I've explained that clearly. I'm sure it must be possible and I'm probably overlooking something very basic - in which case some quick clarification would be greatly appreciated.
  8. Hi, I must be doing something wrong or overlooking something simple - is there a quick and easy way to create a borderless table ( ie. no table frame or cell borders) ? UPDATE : Nevermind. Just worked it out.
  9. @Dr. Dave Thanks Dr Dave ! - that works very nicely with two different nodes but I can't seem to get it working with the two transform handles of a single node. How do you select both transform handles? I've tried holding CTRL, SHIFT, ALT and all the usual combinations.
  10. Does anyone know if this is possible yet? I've tried several modifier key combinations but none of them seem to work.
  11. @AndyQ Cheers Andy - glad it's not just me ! You might also find this thread useful for reclaiming a bit of that vertical real estate - gets rid of the info bar along the bottom if you decide you no longer need it.
  12. @fde101 Ah so they are ! Thanks fde101 - very much appreciated.
  13. Many thanks for all your suggestions. @thomaso Geometry options weren't available in Publisher Beta but now the Personas are active it's all good. @Aammppaa Your solution also now works :-)
  14. I work mostly on a laptop so vertical screen real estate is always at a premium. I think it would be nice to have the option to dock the toolbar vertically either left or right, especially as the default buttons leave quite a lot of empty space on the toolbar and horizontal real estate seems plentiful. I realize many designers are working on large desktops so this probably isn't much of an issue, but I'd be curious to know how others feel. PS : I'v posted this in the Designer forum but it applies equally to Photo and Publisher.
