  1. Out of interest, did you check your master sheets? This is a place where I found some rogue fonts residing and which the 'locate' feature didn't, erm, locate.
  2. Hi Walt, Thanks for the reply - it seems that there was some problem with the text/paragraph styles... they were selected in the panel but were not coming through to the drop down menu at the top. I've resaved the styles and reapplied them using the top menu drop-down and now they are appearing in the TOC box so it's all working fine (-ish!) Thanks for your help. Edward
  3. Hi, I wonder if someone can help me... It's the first time I'm using table of contents in Publisher. I have the document almost complete with a page set out ready to receive the TOC. I have the document text formatted using Text Styles as appropriate. I've drawn my text box and have then selected to insert the TOC which brings up the TOC control panel box. However, in the 'style name' section, NO styles are listed. As a result, Publisher tells me that 'no table of contents entries were found'. What am I doing wrong? How do I get the text styles from my document into the TOC control panel such that I can select the relevant ones to be used to determine the TOC? All thoughts/suggestions gratefully received! Edward
  4. That is an interesting solution... It's interesting that in this situation, the third (unnecessary) joining line is not created... But, as you say, it's not exactly a 1 click operation. Thanks for the feedback though. I hope someone from Affinity is watching and might create a solution the problem properly.
  5. In a separate post I've asked the same question... so I'm glad I'm not the only one missing this functionality! However, I wonder if an additional tool is actually required... it's not in Illustrator. My version is simply that if the two points to be joined are coincident, the additional joining line is not created. That way, one tool does two jobs. For me, the process would be thus: Use the node tool to drag one point on top of another node (the yellow snapping cues will help you to know they are coincident). Click-drag over the points (which are coincident) to select both. Select 'join curves'. Done. I guess, a dialogue could appear (as it does in Illustrator) to ask if you'd like a corner or a smooth curve. For me that's not essential as I can change that in the normal way as necessary. If the two points are not coincident then the functionality of the join curve button would be the same as it currently is (i.e. an additional line would be added to join the two points. Make sense? Edward
  6. Hi Sfiedberg, thanks for the reply - good to know that it's not just me! When you suggest dragging one point over the second - do you mean after you've already joined two points? If yes, then you still have a line between those two points (even if at that point they are coincident and hence that line has zero length). Then, when you drag the point you'll probably just pick up one point and the extra line will re-appear. I hope this is something that Affinity is working on. Do you know how I can propose it as a feature request? Edward
  7. Hi, Please could someone explain how to join coincident points in Designer? I understand how to use the Join tool with non-coincident points: shift-select the two end points with the node tool, select Join and hey presto! you get a new line which joins the two selected points. However, what about if I don't want a new line? How do I select the two coincident points such that they then join to create a single point which joins the two lines together? In Illustrator, this is not tricky - click and drag over the two coincident points > select join (decide if you want a sharp corner or a curving corner) and it's done. I'm sure I'm missing something in Designer... could someone spill the beans please? Thank you! Edward
  8. Thanks both of you. The wonders of user forums never ceases to inspire!
  9. That's exactly what I want! Brilliant! Thanks Joachim! I wish I had found this before. Thanks for all your input and for being so quick to respond - much appreciated.
  10. Ah! I see. Yes, the Node Tool was active. With the Move tool active, the feature works now. Thanks Joachim. One thing though - the percentage is relative rather than absolute - and by that I mean, if I've changed the size from the original size to, say, 125% then it'll grow by the additional 25%. But if I want it to be 126% instead of 125%, I can't simply say '126%' as that'll then increase it from the already increased size by the additional 26%. Is there anyway that the percentage increase can be absolute relative to the original size? (As per the size slider below the image) Edward
  11. Thanks Joachim... however, when I click the image within (below) the picture frame on the layers panel, the transform panel options are all greyed-out... Any suggestions? Edward
  12. Going back to resizing an image by percentage - someone said that you can type percentages in the transform palette - however, for me, that only adjusts the bounding box of the image rather than the image within it. I presume I'm doing something wrong. So, could someone explain how I can change the size of an image itself (that's been placed inside an image box) by accurate percentage? If I'm not so bothered about getting things exact I can use the slider below the image. But what about if I want two images to be changed by exactly the same amount? Or, indeed, even if I want to change the zoom using the slider but to, say, 100.1% - the slider is 'sticky' to certain zoom levels and jumps from those levels. Make sense? All thoughts/suggestions gratefully received! Edward
  13. Hmm. That's disappointing - Regarding bulk updating of images (i.e. that one update can then 'intelligently' be passed through to other images with links broken assuming the same previous path) - is that something that's on the roadmap? It is something that's on Indesign I believe. It seems such an obvious feature... Edward
  14. Hello, When moving a Publisher file from a PC to a mac, the images linked in documents are noted as 'missing' - I believe this is because the server path appears to be changing... On the mac the path includes the server 'share' name whereas on the PC the server share is noted as a drive letter (Y:\) instead. Firstly, is there a way around this within Publisher? Secondly, if not, is there a way to do bulk updates to linked images? I'd have expected that, when I update one image within a folder, the others with the same general path will also automatically update. However, currently I have to update the each individually. Am I missing something? All thoughts gratefully received! Edward
