  1. OK found yet another override in the Text Frame panel. "Ignore Baseline Grid" in the top panel. I must say it's annoying to have to search for all these override options Why do we have "Ignore Baseline Grid" as well as "Use Baseline Grid"? Surely one would do.
  2. Text in an independent panel using a text style that has "Align to Baseline Grid" selected but does not align to the baseline. The text frame panel has "Use baseline grid" not selectable. How do I fix this?
  3. The problem went away by quitting Affinity and relaunching.
  4. I'm having the same problem. The first par of text in the column has a space at the beginning and I cannot remove it. There is no par indent specified in paragraph spacing. Not sure when it appeared but I was working on a table which overlaps the text columns with a text wrap but it's not near the random space problem.
  5. Thanks Thomas... I'll have a look at that. Thanks also Walt, I have posted as per your link. I hope the team includes this function as the FIND/REPLACE feature can be a very powerful tool.
  6. I want to replace a Wingdings text character with an Illustrator Vector Graphic (a circle with an arrow in it) so using the Glyph Browser doesn't do the job. In InDesign there is an option to replace a character with the contents of the clipboard. I can import a graphic (in this case the Illustrator Vector illustration) as an inline graphic so it's just like a text character, then copy it to the clipboard and replace all occurrences of a text item with that vector graphic. In a document with hundreds of these instances it makes the job significantly faster.  If this can't be done at the moment I'll use InDesign until it's available for this job only. Other jobs I'll do in Affinity as I'm impressed with the App. I would really love it if you could put this function on the wish list for future releases. Also being able to place the cursor in the text and press CMD 2 to zoom to that point would be great. Makes editing text really quick.

  8. I have just transferred from InDesign to Affinity. A feature of InDesign is that I can search and replace text with an inline graphic. I have a document with hundreds of arrows and to replace each one at a time is too laborious. The cog on the replace field only has Style options—no special character option. Is there a way to do this as it makes this program unusable for me without that feature.
