  1. Hi Callum, Thanks for the reply. Here's my screenshot, and my system is Windows 10. I can't figure out how to show a screen recording because it just shuts down unexpectedly. However, having said that, I've been away for a week and after coming back I've not had the problem today so far.
  2. Hi all, I've just moved up to Publisher 1.10.1 and I'm getting very frequent crashes. Complete shut down, most often even without a recovery file. The file I'm working on is quite large (221Mb) and has quite a lot of small linked graphics. However, what is puzzling is that the most often occurrence of the crash is when I try to use the left/right arrows to move the cursor along the text. This is not what I would imagine to be the most CPU intensive activity, so I'm a little non-plussed. Anybody else found this? Cheers, Tony
  3. Ah thanks guys. I misunderstood. I was looking for a way to disable it at machine level, not looking inside Photo - Doh! I'll monitor it and see how it goes. Cheers, Tony
  4. Thanks for the info, Ron, but I'm afraid I can't figure out how to even get to the preferences screen. I'm on Windows 10 and I can't find a preferences option within the settings.
  5. Hi, I recently posted this in the thread about the Radeon issue, thinking it might be a similar thing, but I have been advised to start a new thread. I'm using a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M. Recently I have been getting a pop-up saying that Photo.exe has been blocked from accessing the graphics hardware, and, of course, the laptop then starts to struggle. The user who suggested it also wanted to know if turning off Hardware Acceleration made any difference. Unfortunately, I'm not sure how to do that Cheers, Tony
  6. Hi. I'm using a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M. Recently I have been getting a pop-up saying that Photo.exe has been blocked from accessing the graphics hardware, and, of course, the laptop then starts to struggle. Is this part of this same issue? Or do I have another problem? Cheers, Tony
  7. Oh yes! If I drag and drop the offending Linked document onto ITS OWN picture frame it sorts it. WT*...??? I have to say this seems like a bit of a pointless feature TBH. It's like you have to 'remind' the program what's in the box. Bit like the resizing of some images (but that's another issue). I love this program but it does seems to have a few... corner case features... that seem a bit wacky. Thanks everyone for your input.
  8. Thanks. I'll play around with it. Fortunately, it's merely a visual thing and doesn't actually get in the way of anything in the long run.
  9. Clearly you are well more knowledgable about this than I am, Thomaso. I'm still a little unclear. Is the black X an indication that the image has been imported right, or wrong?
  10. Does anyone have any answers regarding this, yet? I suspect the black Xs are a deliberate feature and are supposed to be there to be helpful in some way, but I cannot for the life of me see how.
  11. Sure Lee, This is one page. The little symbols are all linked images which were relinked to SVG files using the resource manager. The black boxes we not there before the relink. It's not exactly a game-breaker, but it makes it harder to see the work. The larger red icon to the left was updated directly using replace image, and this seems to be the only way to get rid of the x-boxes. Cheers, Tony
  12. There is a strange feature of Publisher. When a linked image is either updated outside of Publisher, or the Resource Manager is used to replace images the subsequent picture box displays a rather ugly black cross over the image. Now, I suspect this is a deliberate feature to give a heads-up that the image link has changed, but tbh, I find it rather distracting. Is there a way to turn this feature off without needing to Ctrl-Shift-W to turn all the frames and guides off? Cheers, Tony
  13. Brilliant! Thanks. I just knew there must be a way to do this, but it's not entirely obvious.
  14. Apologies if this has been adressed elsewhere but I can't find any mention. When I set up a layout grid using grid manager I know how to adjust the size and colour of the grid just fine. What I can't figure is how to set the start point of the grid. I want to align it to one of the frames on the page and I want a simple, non-sub divided grid. If I drag/drop the top left of the screen the rulers move just fine but the grid stubbornly remains at the top left border of the document. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Cheers, Tony
