  1. Old Bruce, Thank you for your help. The problem was that italics disappeared when I applied my paragraph style to the imported text. I was not aware of the difference between style and format. You have straightened things out for me. Thanks! I do appreciate it.
  2. Old Bruce: .rtf extension. Made by Nisus Writer Express.
  3. I'm importing a big document of text (80,000 words) into a Publisher document. Most of it is normal text, but some words and phrases are in italics. How do I apply my Publisher style to this text and still keep the italicized material italicized?
  4. Happy to report that Ingram Spark accepted my files using pdf/X-3:2003 format. So yay! I immediately cancelled my InDesign subscription and told Adobe I was leaving because I hated their ransomware business model and that I was going with Affinity Publisher instead.
  5. Thank you for the information.
  6. Thank you for your reply and my apologies for making a mistake in my original post. What I should have said is that Ingram Spark requires PDF/X-1a:2001 or PDF/X-3:2002. Neither of those are in the export dialog box for Affinity Publisher. So, does anyone know how I can make a pdf with those specifications using Publisher?
  7. Has anyone successfully used Publisher to make a PDF that works on IngramSpark? I really want to give up InDesign and move to Publisher, but it won't work unless I can make a PDF that IS will accept. They say they want PDF/X1‑a:2003 or PDF/X‑3 (2003). I don't see that on the drop down menu for exporting to PDF in Affinity. Is there a work around?
