  1. Maybe you're in Preview mode? (Hit ⌃w)
  2. Can you upload a screenshot of what you're trying to achieve (like fake it with two text boxes)? This one is 0 spacing:
  3. I've been hoping for the same thing, can't find it though - currently the only way (I believe) is to group the picture frame, then it will all scale up OK - but a simple modifier key would be much better.
  4. I might be misunderstanding you - but you don't need a second return between paragraphs, instead just use the 'Space after paragraph' in Paragraph spacing. In this screenshot I've turned on Text>Show Special Characters so you can see there's just a single return after each paragraph.
  5. I have a retina MBP connected to a 24" Dell monitor (1920x1200px) - all looks fine on the MBP, but there are screen glitches when Publisher is on the monitor, most notably broken up margin guides, but also page numbers with small thumbnails - in the screenshot I've put the same text on the page beside the thumbnail so you can see it's not just a ropey monitor!
  6. Definitely needed - a recent build added a drop-down in the context bar for selecting which 'Spread' of a multi-page pdf to display (odd naming by the way) - could there be a similar drop down for bleed/slug/trim? Same would go for placed Affinity Designer files.
  7. I just downloaded the file and 'ignore text wraps' is enabled, turn it off and text-wrap works fine - but from what Walt says it's opening up different on Windows to Mac?
  8. Hi @GabrielM, no, they also have Systemwide auto-activation of fonts - in your screenshot - as I say, all other apps work correctly - Apple Pages; Sketch; Pixelmator Pro; Office apps - none have dedicated plugins.The plugins add more function, but basic font activation requests should and do work, it's just that Affinity isn't 'seeing' them after they're activated.
  9. I have FontExplorer set to automatically activate fonts requested by documents - when I open a Designer file, Font Explorer says it's opening requested fonts (before Designer has managed to open the file) but once open, Designer doesn't recognise the fonts. I know they have activated because I can go into another app and use the fonts fine. Even if I close the file and re-open, it doesn't work - the only way is to quit Designer, activate the fonts manually in FontExplorer and then launch Designer. The same problem in Photo, but all other applications I have work fine with this - Pixelmator Pro; Pages; Sketch; Office (Adobe CS6 Suite too but that has dedicated plugins for FontExplorer). It's only the auto-activated fonts that have the problem - if I open a Designer file, then manually activate a font in FontExplorer, it is immediately available in Designer fine.
  10. I agree - it's doing the same with Affinity Photo files too, which has just a pixel layer, so I hope Pub will be able to recognise resolution in those eventually.
  11. Hi Bob, look in the View menu, all the various zoom shortcuts are there - zoom to selection: shift+cmd+0
  12. Just spotted a nice little feature that's made me very happy (probably just being blind until now) - with the Context Toolbar showing and an image selected, at the left side of the Context toolbar it shows: image name | pixel dimensions @ placed dpi. Love this, saves opening Resource manager just to check I haven't over-enlarged an image. And if I've accidentally stretched an image's proportions it shows for example @300x320dpi instead of just @300dpi if it's in proportion. Also great. Requests: Having seen I've mistakenly stretched an image's proportion, could there be a reset of some sort, to put it back in proportion, other than manually trying to un-strech it? (none of the picture frame properties correct this if you've manually scaled the image). While scaling an image, could that dpi adjust on the fly, so I don't have to scale and let go, scale and let go to see the updated placed resolution? Super-picky, but it should be ppi, not dpi, same in resource manager. ____ Also on the subject of placed images, when images are selected within a picture frame, or inside a rectangle, could the transform x-y coordinates relate to the parent container, not the page. To explain further, if an image is manually cropped within a picture frame, but I want to be sure that it starts exactly at the left edge of the picture frame (for example) - if the x-y co-ordinates relate to the container then the x co-ordinates need to be 0 - currently they show the image's position on the page, so bear no relation to where they are in the container.
