  1. I tried the system-wide Mac shortcut for Emoji: cmd-cntr- space and it brought them up, but it's affinity's own interface. I've just tracked it down under 'Edit' menu - 'Emoji & Symbols' - seems an odd place to put it!
  2. On MacOS with any app of the suite in fullscreen, if you do File > New document, the templates dialogue spits you out of fullscreen to make your choice. When you make a selection, the dialogue closes leaving you completely out of the affinity app you were in, you then have to remember to swipe back to the fullscreen app where your new document is waiting for you, wondering where you were! Just feels a bit clunky, all other dialogues leave in the fullscreen app.
  3. I'm also getting the same weird things with text frame tab, like @janichsan there's no scroll bar, and depending what other panel is open, clicking the Text Frame tab may not open the tab at all - instead clicking on it 'blanks' the other open tabs - Macos 10.14.5, Publisher 1.7.3 - screen record below Screen Recording 2019-10-08 at 07.36.27.mov Screen Recording 2019-10-08 at 07.36.27.m4v
  4. Don't know if there's a way to select the node beneath, but you could do shift+arrow to nudge the top node a set distance, then nudge it back once you've moved the one you want: select top node shift+right arrow to move it select next node and move wherever you want select original top node again shift+left arrow to put it back where it was How far it moves depends what you have set in preferences > tools > modifier nudge distance, but it should be enough to work from the defaults
  5. Agreed, that's why I said in two tabs - they're separated, just easier to get to when you click on the wrong one
  6. Could these just be two tabs in a single window - so often I open Document Setup only to realise I need to be in Spread instead - they're so closely related and are combined at New Document dialogue.
  7. I opened your .ai file and it looks like each piece of the feather is a gradient mesh. Affinity understands .ai files as they're basically pdfs (I believe?) but can't cope with the gradient mesh part so it's turning the fills to white instead. Looks like exporting as an svg from illustrator brings it in to Publisher OK, but I haven't looked too closely.
  8. I can't find a solution - I figured a better way to do it was to create a rectangle, also in the spot pms colour and then paint a mask over that in pixel persona. Turn the mask off and all exports with spot colour intact in Acrobat - turn the mask on and re-export and AGAIN, it's converted it to CMYK!!!
  9. Correct, but there is 'Insert behind the selection' - it's in the tool bar, also menu 'Layer > insertion > behind' so you can assign a keystroke to it - but it does make it a two-step process as you have to do that then follow it with paste - the advantage is, you can follow it with 'place' instead of 'paste' if you want
  10. I'll let a PagePlus user answer your first bit as I'm not really sure what you're asking - but for brush previews, to to Preferences > User Interface - tick 'Show brush previews'
  11. I'm seeing this working fine - are you folks on Windows or Mac?
  12. Just a thought until there is a preflight panel - in terms of tracking down the culprit text-frames, if you do 'view > zoom > zoom to document' - no matter how many pages you have, you will zoom out to see thumbnails of all pages at once - the little red alert dots do NOT scale down with the thumbnail, so it's really easy to spy which page(s) have overflowing text (assuming as above, that you have 'show text flow' enabled and are not in preview mode)
  13. Despite the title of this post, I think @larsh is saying he had an image selected and clicked 'Convert to curves' - just tried this and it creates a curve object with an image fill (see screenshot) and the image is no-longer listed in resource manager, either linked or embedded - other than undo, there doesn't seem to be a way to convert back from there. Without any control over that fill I'm not sure this is a useful feature?
