  1. Thank you Lagarto for this extensive research. I wished that Publisher behaved just like InDesign, but I understand the developers from Serif have there own way of designing a program. I understand now that Publisher is not able to use the same values for metrics as InDesign does. I can work with that the moment I know it is not somewhere hidden. I was looking for something that did not exist in Publisher (yet). What @MikeW showed in his screenshot was a good one for understanding the space of a character defined in a typedesign program, thank you for that. @Lagarto The values are not completely arbitrary, you had to define the Capheight, X-height etc. yourself. There is a maximum of 1000 or 2400 units height available for the characters included the accents. That is for fonts that use the Latin script, I do not know how that works for other scripts like Arabic or Thai.
  2. Oh, this is great, thank you! Nice to know more font developers are on this forum. I will ask Dave Harris how Serif handles these issues around the metrics values. This is of great help, thank you!
  3. The name of the font Typist, but is at this moment in development, so not yet available for the market. That is why I am busy testing in several programmas. I do not mind submit an ID file or idml file but that does not make sense without the font i guess.
  4. The leading is on default, I have the idea – but correct me if I an wrong – default gives me the leading that is built in in the typeface. I am testing the vertical metrics of a new typeface and noticed that in Publisher nothing changed, while in InDesign the characters did what I was after. I like to have that result also i Publisher, but maybe that is not possible yet.
  5. firstdefence and MikeW: That is true, but the same typeface in InDesign CS5 gives me the result you can see in the enclosed screenshot. As you can see the accents are a small bit above the text frame. That is were I am after. Old Bruce: Thanks, that is a good thought, but that gives me a lot of other problems. The size of the characters is in this example 72pt. When I use the baseline grid as you suggest, it has to be 21pt otherwise the accentends are still outside the textframe. 21pt for regular typesetting in a book is to much. I could also define a startposition at the top of the textframe, unfortunatly that does not work. If my grid is 10pt (most average that I use), the start position can go to 18pt and the accents are still outside the textframe. I am not sure if there is a (for me) good working solution at this point in the development of Publisher, but I keep hope.
  6. Thank you both for this answer, but it is not what I am looking for. In InDesign it is done by default, depended of the typeface used. In both suggestions the distances would differ between the different typefaces and needs calculating the moment the typeface change. Is there not a way AP does this also by default?
  7. Sorry, I forgot to mention that I work currently in Affinity Publisher on a Mac.
  8. Hello, can someone please tell me where I can find the option that my accented characters stay inside the text frame? The blue line is my text frame. Thank you
  9. When I need to find and replace text I active in View -> Studio -> Find and Replace. In the enclosed screenshot you can see this action gives a blank area across the whole screen. There is no field available to enter the search criteria. How can I get a normal field and replace field?
  10. Thank you for your answer. It is good to know Serif Software needs a license for each computer. I can fully understand, no problem.
  11. On how many computers can I install Affinity Publisher? Thank you all Nieck
  12. Thank you MEB for you reply. I looked on all the wrong places, sorry!
  13. Can anyone please explain where I can change the settings of px to mm in for instance the Text Frame, without doing it manual each time. Thanks!
