    I used to subscribe to Monotype, but let my subscription lapse — in the mean time they seem to have discontinued it and replaced it with an enterprise/large studio service called Mosaic, which frankly I can't afford. If Adobe have removed the standalone Typekit sub, there's a good chance they'll reinstitute it later in the year when iOS 13 arrives. Apple are adding fonts to the App Store, and Adobe, MyFonts, Monotype etc are all on board... so hopefully when they all inevitably go the subscription route, they'll create a way to use that sub on desktop too. In the mean time you can use Skyfonts to sync open fonts from Google, along with any fonts you've purchased from the likes of MyFonts. Not ideal, but it's all there is right now (that I can find).
  2. K is black in print (CMYK). It removes the CMY from the image. It appears to be just a toggle, so at a guess it's just showing you how that image will look printed with just black ink.

    Expanding and Merging Strokes

    For the "strange results" part, try selecting the curves your going to merge, the changing the fill mode to Alternate (Menu bar > Layer > Fill Mode > Alternate). This solved a lot of issues I had with weird results from merging strokes and shapes together. Agree with the rest though, I always save right before I merge because it's 50/50 whether it'll lock up the app or not.
  4. Hey Sean, I have a screen recording and a document for you, where can I upload them that isn't a public forum? (not that there's anything super special here, I just can't upload a clients document to a public forum).
  5. Every time I open a Designer file, that uses the transparency tool, in Photo it shows the complete image/object rather than the graduated version. Screen recording attached. Screen Recording 2019-06-18 at 11.23.39.mov
  6. Hi Sean, no I hadn't used the Link Picture dialog, though I have seen it. I'll try to capture the screen next time it happens, I had a similar issue this morning where Photo asked for "Global permissions to use linked files in folder path...." but again, I haven't been linking any files, just dragging and dropping.
  7. Hey, yeah I've tried that but no change. It fixes the artboard issue, but does nothing for the text jump. Honestly this is a relatively minor annoyance compared to the other bug I posted, that one is causing actual problems with producing print ready artwork.
  8. Here's an example with just moving an artboard slightly. Brand new document, 2 artboards. Every move jumps the window slightly to the right Screen Recording 2019-06-11 at 12.26.48.mov
  9. No problem. Right click, paste, and it's fine. CMD+V and the whole canvas jumps. It's happening with more than just text, I'll try to screengrab that next time too. Untitled.mov
  10. Happened again this morning with another document. Embedded image files are being linked instead somehow, but I don't see any way to change this behaviour?
  11. As the title says, every time I paste text that isn't confined to a paragraph box it causes the whole canvas to jump on screen to the end of the sentence. It's really jarring.
  12. Actually, I can make it happen with a new document just by hitting "Open in Photo". The files loses the embedded image, and "Open in Designer" will be greyed out.
  13. I understand Publisher will allow for resource linking or embedding, but this morning I got a popup in Designer asking me to locate missing resources. This was a file created just last week in AD 1.6, but on opening today to export it said "locate missing resources" and made me find all the images in the document and replace them. I can't replicate this, as the file opens fine now having re-added the images, but this bug (if it happened again) would make AD completely unreliable for use in a work environment.
  14. On desktop, when I export a PDF and select "Whole document" as the area, it exports each artboard as a page in the PDF. On iPad, when I export the same document to PDF and select "Whole document", it exports the artboards together as one big image (much like exporting a JPEG on desktop) rather than individual pages.
  15. @szimm Are you exporting as PDF/X-4?
