  1. I confirm this actually works and is really better than nothing. However, I think fully functional GREP styling is a must in Publisher, since it doesn't require to search&replace after each text edit.
  2. Default parameters, didn't change anything, save for font and vertical spacing params. The font is PT Serif. I'll check other ones, but I believe it should be ok, since Paratype usually knows its job. If that was the case, I wouldn't call it a bug. Surely the composer can't break the line I've made non-breaking one. However, that isn't the case: on my screenshot, only 1-2-letter words with the following spaces have no-break style, and hyphenation is enabled, so plenty of space to break lines. Also, look at the second screenshot: I've cleared the styles on selection and added two non-breaking spaces, and voila, line composer now can break the line, despite I've set the same non-breaking rules (not with the style, but with NBSPs, but still).
  3. I can't even understand why you're asking. I believe it's self-evident that text should be constrained within its bounding box. Because if I needed the text to flow further to the right, I'd extend that bounding box in the first place. If there are non-breaking rules, the line should be broken either before or after, provided that the constraints are respected as the first priority. It's quite evident that this line can't be broken after non-breaking words (see the first screenshot), therefore it must be broken before (the second screenshot). When text flows outside of bounds,— when it is clearly possible to respect the bounds,— it is definitely a bug.
  4. Yes, you're correct. But line composer should recalculate and break the line before non-breaking segment (because why not?).
  5. In my former InDesign work, I used a “no break” character GREP-style on most texts so I don't have hanging words.Publisher doesn't have such features, however, it does have a regular search&replace allowing to apply a style to matched texts. “That's almost GREP-styling,” — I thought. So, here's the bug. Reproduction I've made a “no break” character style. It adds a “no break” option to a text, nothing else; very simple. Then, I do a regex search equivalent to this (actually with a longer word list and in Russian) and apply this “no break” style to all matches: \<(?i:(a |the )) The rule finds whole words with the following (regular) space symbol. With short words like articles/prepositions/pronouns, it's a perfectly valid rule for finding spaces that shouldn't be broken. What happens When selected text has “no break” style, text goes outside the column: What should happen instead Text should stay in the column (I had to insert non-breaking spaces and clear styles): Affinity Publisher 1.7.2 release version on latest macOS 10.14 release.
  6. GREP Styles is the feature that would totally allow me to replace sluggish InDesign with Publisher. Would love to see it in the nearest updates!
