    Wouldn't it be nice if the good folks at Serif would lift a tip of the veil so we know what to expect? Can we, indesign users, still use applescript/javascript in the future with AP or had we better started learning Python or whatever other option?
  2. APublisher imports neither the footnote text nor the footnote references. Following your technique, Footnote text will have to be copied from the source file and pasted one by one into the Publisher document and footnote references will have to be inserted manually. Dozens per chapter, in my case. Not a task I'm looking forward to.
  3. Did a quick test with copied cells from a publisher table. – Pasted into NeoOffice spreadsheet: rows pasted into separate rows, colums were combined into first column. – Pasted into Numbers: pasted rows and colums in separate rows and colums as desired (and expected). It seems the receiving programs deal with copied/pasted information in a different way.
  4. You can place a pdf and then in the context toolbar after ‘Page Box’ select ‘CropBox’. Is that what you're looking for?
  5. I just found Inkscape has an option to select by style. Will try out myself if I can use Inkscape to prepare files for Affinity, facing the same challenge with files originating from GIS application.
  6. I also noticed, by the way, that an object/layer selected in the layers panel can be deleted without problem or warning. I would prefer locked layers to be truly locked, so they cannot be deleted without first being unlocked. Falls within the same category as the original post, I presume.
  7. Just tried X4. Overprinting works well.
  8. Same here. Thanks for the solution. Or is it a workaround?
  9. In a document I have two objects, one of which is locked in the layers panel and cannot be moved. As is to be expected. When I select both objects (in the layers panel), then apply an alignment, the locked object may move, depending on the applied alignment. The same happens in Publisher. Not exactly shocking, but not how I think it should be.

    Ruler units

    Yes, please! A measure tool of some kind would be welcome as well. A lot of my work is published at a fixed scale. Measuring a ruler included in the photo and then scaling the dimensions of the photo down to the desired (calculated) size is very common in my workl I can use a rectangular marquee combined with the info panel to take a measurement, but then often I have to rotate the ruler that is in the photo first to set it exactly horizontal. A measure tool is a lot faster.
  11. I was wondering if the folks at Serif saw “Highlight Fields” as a sort of extention of “Show Special Characters”. Then it could make sense. Just a little inconvenience. They have a lot more important issues to solve.
  12. I noticed that clicking "Highlight Fields" in the text menu also toggles "Show Special Characters" in the same menu. Is this a little buggy or is it to be seen as intended behaviour?
  13. Hi Jeff Have a closer look at the text frame. You'll see two handles/nodes in the bottom right corner. Moving the inner one will scale/transform the frame only, moving the outer one will also scale the contents of the frame. Brilliant.
  14. Part of my work is in the archaeological field. Drawings of finds are 99.9% drawn in ink on paper, scanned and eventually saved as 1-bit, 1200 ppi tiff. Placed in books, magazines these drawings should output to 1200 ppi, 100% black, high res images. No downsampling, no halftone screening. Another disappointment.
