    The Typographic Ticket Book

    Unfortunately, way too expensive to ship to Germany …
  2. Ha! This is hilarious. I have never seen this option before. And given the current functionality, I would suggest that you rename this option to “Snapping target” with a tick mark (default: ticked). As for a bug, the @2x crossed magnet icon is used on non-Retina screens in Publisher.
  3. No, certainly not. This was too weird an issue not to report it, even if there was no explanation in the end.
  4. The bug description is in the title. Exclude.mov
  5. Somehow these text frames behave like symbols. At least, they are marked as symbols in the layers list, and I assume this has to do with duplicating the master page. However, I cannot reproduce this independently.
  6. Thank you. So this is a nice feature. And it also works without any additional computations beyond the Basic Multilingual Plane! Very well done, dear folks at Serif. Unicode.mov
  7. Ah, wait … I believe that version of Consolas was a legacy version. The current one shows the issue as well. I updated my screenshot in the post above. My fault.
  8. Hi Chris26, and welcome here … What you describe is due to automatic glyph substitution. There has been a little discussion about this feature in a recent thread, in case you are interested. https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/69274-glyph-substitutions-must-be-highlighted/ Cheers, Alex
  9. That is possible. Simply select the text in your table cell, go to the Paragraph Panel, and disable Align to baseline grid. This won’t have any effect on any other part of your document besides the selected one. Or use a text style, as Walt mentioned (a second ago).
  10. No, this is certainly not intentional. It might be related to a bug that hasn’t been fixed yet. https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/65849-guides-in-master-page-weird-shapes-in-pages/&tab=comments#comment-357212
  11. I fear this thread got me confused from the beginning. You and MAUSSIMI are completely right. What I meant with defaulting the ruler origin to the middle of the spread is this: I think there is a certain advantage to move the ruler origin to the binding edge, when you start your design with creating some sort of design grid or guides system for your spreads.
  12. But isn’t the page logic different, when you have facing pages, at least in book typography? Wouldn’t you want to measure from the binding edge? For creating books, I would be content if the ruler origin would default to the top of the binding edge, but I understand that one could make good use of two ruler origins in other use cases. Maybe a document-related preference would make sense.
