  1. I have previously logged this error and logs and am of the same opinion. I can't change or apply text styles (along with other basic functionality) without insta-crashing. I have also gone back to InDesign as I don't have the time or inclination to beta test commercial software. I wish Affinity the best, but I have stopped using the software.
  2. Nils, it doesn't work for me. It has never worked for me. This is not some weird minor glitch in a sub sub sub menu in a barely used feature. This is importing or pasting text and changing formatting in a paid desktop publishing program. It is not my job to fund alpha software for developers. I paid because it was released as commercial software. I got pre-alpha software. All software has bugs, however, for me, this software is literally non-functional.
  3. It's still doing all of this in 1.7.3 I am done with Publisher. Not acceptable. You got my money. Well played.
  4. Seriously. I have not gotten Publisher to last more than 3 minutes without crashing. At this point I feel like I have been given a big f*ck you for supporting it. I have yet to save out a file of any worth. There is no way in seven hells I am going to trust any form of production to Publisher. I literally can't get text into the app without it crashing. Placing text crashes. Pasting text crashes. Importing from a Word file crashes. If I DO get text in, say, by typing manually, I try and edit a paragraph style, crashes. At this point it's beyond a joke. The software is dead to me as
  5. That works for one offs, but is a bit of a hassle when you don't know how big you need the frame to be (like you have a very large amount of text). I get the impression that "placing" is best practice for those kind of situations, though. I will also say I completely uninstalled 1.7.2 and reinstalled in case it was something to do with that an no difference in my two main issues with Publisher at the moment (can't paste text and can't define any kind of paragraph style without crashing).

  7. Instant crash for me as well, doing what OP did. This was happening to me for a while (still happening), so I have stopped using Publisher. I also live in Japan and am using a Japanese Macbook Pro, but all in English. OP, for a workaround, try selecting the text frame with the "Frame Text Tool" and then using FILE> PLACE to place the file of text. It should go in okay.
  8. This is still happening in 1.7.2. Just tried to change a style and it crashes.

  9. Ok, I applied the stock standard "body" paragraph style. Just tried to make a text style again, for paragraphs. Crash. The only thing I did was change to Times New Roman. I even just tried adding an already made text style to some text. Nope. Crash. I appreciate your help, Old Bruce, but I don't have time for this. Either the app can deal with basic text stuff or it can't and it's not ready for commercial release. I appreciate that there will be bugs with new software, but this is nuts. I will wait until they have put out more patches before trying again.
  10. Seriously, at this point I am not sure what is going on. I used the Beta for a bit and then paid for the full version. Finally got around to start doing some BASIC, BASIC stuff and the app is crashing on almost everything. Finally placed some raw text in bog standard new document (about 10 pages of linked text boxes) and when I got to modify Body text style, it instantly crashes when I change fonts. So, at this stage I have a publishing app that has trouble pasting text and can't change font. I really hope the next update sorts this out, because this is a horrific start for me. I
  11. Note: I worked around this by placing a text file of my document directly int publisher. Pasting more than a page worth of text (plain text, copied from a text editor) into a text box crashes Publisher. Pasting a file directly into a textbox has the same result. I pasted around 4000 words into an a4 sized textbox. Crash. 2000 words. Crash. 1000 words. Crash. Slightly more than the size of the textbox. Crash. Just less than the text box size. Okay. Repeated with different text and files around ten times.
  12. I got excited at your comment, tried "placing" the .txt into a text box, and then it crashed after 2 seconds. Ok, round 2. Delete textbox. Blank document. "Place" text file into document. Hallelujah! It works. So, no copying and pasting text into textboxes (???) no placing text files into textboxes Just place the .txt directly into the document. Thanks for your help. I am definitely calling this a bug and not a feauture
