  1. I did it once, years ago, the Peignot font. But I just got into it and saw adding fonts to any application is adding fonts to fontbook. For those who are also new to this: 1. go to a font library like Google fonts or font squirrel, download font 2. open fontbook 3. Have fontbook open and the download folder. 4. Drag font into fontbook. On users or on "computer" where it becomes a system font. PS: when I tried to drag the Arapey font onto the computer collection of fonts (system fonts) I got an error messages "2 minor problems were found" without saying what those problems were. So I left the font in the user folder, where I didn't get any error.
  2. How can I install a font in Affinity Publisher? I found a font on Fontsquirrel that a client liked and I don't know how to get it into Publisher. I have searched the web and the help but there is no information on how to do it. I'm on OS X High Sierra.
  3. Thanks - I dragged until they touched, but one has to actually move the whole application to the right so you can move the panel far enough to the left for docking. Which I did, and now it's docked!

    Docking a Panel

    I also have problem. My pages panel became undocked, and I cannot dock it again.
  5. I clicked somewhere wrong and my pages panel disappeared. When I put it back I cannot get it the way it was. It either covers up my toolbar to the left... ... or when I dock it, the font chooser decides to show BENEATH the panel. How can I get rid of this behavior and make it as it was? Where the panel is just docked and doesn't get in the way? I'm attaching the covered up font chooser by the docked panel.
  6. Embedding video and sound would be nice. I have a magazine, and at the moment it's just text and images. But I'd love to make it multi-media.
  7. 100$/year - too expensive to balance out a weakness in OS X. I wish new software versions would fix key things that don't work well instead of gadgety new "features" only geeks and nerds like to play with but nobody actually needs. So we get messy things like junk fonts you cannot turn off, Mac OS X having trouble building thumbnails from larger images, but we cannot remove fonts that you wouldn't use in a thousand years like all those Asian fonts, dingbat, comic sans, all those cheesy handwriting fonts...
  8. Yes, I am using the favorite feature. Garrett, your idea of disabling fonts from displaying would one feature I'd like on the OS for Mac. And I agree that I don't want to mess with the font book and uninstall fonts there... you never know what problems you could create down the road. The good fonts are hiding between "chalk" and "comic" and a lot of cheesy handwriting and useless dingbat style symbol "fonts". After over a quarter century of OS development, individualization of a system is a must. But instead, we are getting useless and cluttering features from software developers who do not ever seem to use the software they are working for - or we wouldn't have all those clutter-beasts.
  9. And one other thing - aligning an element to the center is not working well, either. I often have to move left-right-left-right for several times until finally that green light flashes. Finding the center line up/down is easy. Please fix that sluggish left/right align center function - which is also the much more important one.
  10. The list of fonts is very long - and you can create favorites. But sometimes you are looking for a new font. And you don't want to browse through junk fonts like "Comic Sans" - because you will never pick that font. Actually, you should be punished by twelve strikes to the naked soles of your feet if you ever feel "Comic Sans" is a good choice. There are quite many such junk fonts. Can you delete them? Or at least have them no longer show up in the long list of fonts - and have a long list that actually consists of good fonts?

    Document Templates?

    Thank you Garrett, This was exactly what I was asking about. Much appreciated!

    Document Templates?

    Maybe my question wasn't clear enough formulated: When you create a new document, you put in pixel dimensions, choose if it is for print or online, set up bleed or no bleed, and if pictures are embedded and linked to.... I'd like to just pick the template "magazine" where all this is set, and I can start working, or the template "postcard", which is designed for print, or the template "business card" My current work around is to copy the last document and clean out the content and create. A template chooser when you open Affinity Publisher would be a good option I think. PS: I do not mean to get a selection of pre-installed templates as we get in word processors. Those are always ugly beyond belief. I only mean to save PREFERENCES FOR NEW DOCUMENTS that we ourselves create.
  13. I have a good setup for my magazine - and I'd like to save it as a template, so I can start up a fresh document from it. Is this possible in Publisher? It would be great if it were so I can just click the template and don't have to worry setting up preferences each time.
  14. Today I blew up the artistic text tool. It no longer works properly. As a text I wrote "image format 1: 1,34" I never got to the "1,34". Somehow the ":" was understood like a programming character. It expanded the text window to quadruple the page width. And now, whenever I want to use the text tool, I only get that "1:" and cannot type anything into the text box any more. Really bad bug. Edit: solution I saved the document. Closed the app. Reopened. And I could use the artistic text tool again. Would still be great to get that bug fixed.
  15. Thank you, Carl! The problem is: "release mask" is grayed out and does not work.
