  1. Hi there, I don’t know if that has been reported already, but when you select a text style here (1), and rename the style afterwards, the change isn’t reflected in (1). In other words, the connection to the style is lost, and the table gets the default text style, when the table style is applied. Thank you for having a look. 😀 Alex
  2. Well, it’s pretty common that the blinking cursor exceeds the boundaries of a text frame, bleyden. Your glyphs will often do as well, as the ascender of the glyphs belonging to the first line of a text frame will usually coincide with the top border of this frame (I say “usually,” since you could be using a baseline shift or a baseline grid relative to the spread, in which case this coincidence may not happen). And the blinking cursor as well as the selection highlight extend up to the font bounding box. So this is a pretty normal situation. I wouldn’t bother too much about it. 🙂
  3. Thank you! So glad that this issue is out of the way. It’s incredible how much one relies on grouping … 😁
  4. I’m sorry to say that, but this is a terrible issue. I hope the 1.9.1 update will arrive very soon in the App store. 🙁
  5. Same here. Exactly as described by @kaffeeundsalz.
  6. I’d probably separate the PDF to single pages in an external application. There are plenty of free or inexpensive options available for doing this on Windows. Then you can use File > Place …, select all your single-page PDFs in the dialogue, and you’ll get the useful Place Images panel that allows you to simply add one PDF after another. 😀 (If you have single-page PDFs, still another option would be data merge, I guess. Unfortunately, I didn’t have the time to test it with documents so far, but it should work.)
  7. Yes! PDF Passthrough is getting useful! Thank you so much … 😀
  8. The Resource Manager with linked resources is a very welcome addition, Matt! Awesome work with the 1.9 series so far! 😀
  9. That’s a great real-life example! 😀 And I’d support your conclusion. Also not meant as mere criticism in any way, but hopefully received as some sort of constructive feedback! 😊
  10. I absolutely agree with the point you made earlier in this thread, Jens! 🙂 I just meant to provide an example that can explain why it is essential to have the non-interpreted version of a placed PDF displayed in Affinity Publisher. In my example, I exported a PDF with Erica One from Publisher, disabled the font, and placed the PDF back in a different Publisher document. Now, what can you do with the placed file, when the typeface is replaced by Lucida Grande? There is no way to create a consistent design context in which the placed PDF could play a role. You simply don’t see what you get. I fear the current approach will be met with strong reservations, should it find its way to the release version. I must also confess, I didn’t understand completely what Adam said in his earlier reply. As far as I understand, the development team would like to stick to the idea that the PDF interpreter is responsible for displaying the placed PDF on screen. And to achieve WYSIWYG, they are planning to improve the PDF interpreter up to the point where the interpreted PDF is visually identical to the source PDF, in particular by finding a solution for embedded fonts. Of course, if that’s achievable, it would be a satisfactory solution. But I think it’s clear that PDF passthrough, in its current state, would cover a rather limited range of use cases in real-world contexts.
  11. Strictly out of curiosity: MacBook Pro 13" Late 2011 2,4 GHz Intel Core i5 16 GB 1333 MHz DDR3 Intel HD Graphics 3000 512 MB macOS Sierra 10.12.16 Sorry, this is hard to read, but that’s the way the benchmark panel looks on Sierra:
  12. Configuration: MacBook Pro 16" 2019 — Base Model 2.6 GHz Intel 6-Core i7 16 GB 2667 MHz DDR 4 Intel UHD Graphics 630 AMD Radeon Pro 5300M macOS Catalina 10.15.6 Get slightly different numbers when running the test several times, as probably to be expected. Anyway, here are some. 😉
