  1. Sorry - I should have double checked that. There goes my credibility! 😁 This should work: https://affinity.help/publisher2/English.lproj/pages/Text/frameText.html Bad news - it does not appear to support the conversion of text frames in a linked series to Art Text, though I'd be happy to be shown to be wrong. Again. 😁
  2. I've just had a quick tinker with that and it appears that it does accept space characters - even simply typed manually. The only thing is that they are positioned on the outside left of the frame. Try turning on Text > Show Special Characters to see them. (NB the file you uploaded has more than just space characters at the start, though I'm not sure what they are.) If that doesn't quite give you the solution that you're after because of the inside/outside aspect, cheat. 😃 Use whatever characters you like to get the spacing right. Once you've confirmed that it's basically giving the result you want, undo as far as required, set the spacer text that I've highlighted below in orange to have opacity=0%. That'll hide it when you do the rect/polar distortion.
  3. I wonder if it's the "To convert frame text to artistic text:" section at the bottom of this page that you're thinking about? https://affinity.help/publisher2/English.lproj/pages/Tools/tools_frameText.html
  4. Yes, I remember that well. And the current 365 version of Word still does it. Is that modern enough for you? 😃
  5. @StewartTower - since you're a Mac user, there's another possibility that you could look at for converting .doc to .docx - Apple's very own Pages, which you'll already have. I've just done a quick test to create a .doc file in Word that was opened quite happily by Pages. Pages is unable to Export back out to .doc - but it has long been able to produce .docx files. File > Export To > Word…
  6. I'm sure a lot of us would agree that it's better to have a question that's easily explained like this than, say, an intermittent problem or a bug that we have to wait to be fixed. I'm pleased we were able to get you sorted in the end.
  7. Just to get it out the way, have you by any chance turned on the Ignore Modifier checkbox? I know that sounds like a dumb question, but I don't think I've ever noticed that until now! (To cut myself a little slack, I normally use the dark mode, where it doesn't stand out quite so much.) Doing a quick test with that option enabled seems to provide the experience you've described. Turning it back off returns it to expected behaviour.
  8. The same Affinity Publisher 2.1.1 and macOS 13.5 (Ventura) also export it it okay. We're talking about the occurrence under the Governing Board section, near the top left, yes? Beside the Editor? (Not the one in the second bottom line on the first page, which appears to be fine in your PDF too…) The upper left version is set in Time New Roman Italic (while the other version is in Georgia Italic). Previous experience with font misbehaviour would initially make me question the version in use. What version is it? Possibly more likely - do you have more than one version installed? Here's what Font Book says about the sole version I have installed: What version(s) and how many are on your Sonoma beta? If there are multiple installs, I'd be inclined to at least temporarily delete any not at the path shown above and try your export again. Actually, quit Publisher first, delete any surplus versions, relaunch Publisher and then try the export again. (You definitely should not try deleting the version in /System/Library/Fonts - that should be left well alone. But it would be … curious … if you had a newer version installed at another location.)
  9. Hi @hmshms and welcome to the forums. I can't account for the duplicate settings, but may I point out that your first screenshot shows a scrollbar on the right that suggests there's quite a few settings not shown. (I'm afraid I don't have a printer at home, so can't double-check before making this suggestion.) It wouldn't be the first time that I've seen an Affinity dialog box that "masked" some settings until you either scrolled or even resized the dialog box to make it a little taller from the default size.
  10. Hi @Poorukko and welcome to the forums. Try this: select one of the objects you want to recolour then choose the following menu command: Select > Select Same > Fill Colour Many other criteria are also available apart from Fill Colour and may suit better, but have a play with that option to get the hang of it. https://affinity.help/designer2/English.lproj/pages/ObjectControl/selectByAttribute.html The related help page may be worth a review too: https://affinity.help/designer2/English.lproj/pages/ObjectControl/select.html Hope this helps!
  11. It's difficult to tell from just the screenshot, but I wonder if part of the problem might be that you have somehow got two text frames - one exactly over the other - on page 25. And the upper has been linked to the lower (or vice versa). That might account for the text flow line flowing from lower right back up to upper left. Check the contents of your Layers panel…
  12. How about if you right-click (having first selected the Move tool) on one of the other cells? One with regular text? Just a single-right-click…
  13. Unless you have reorganised your Tools panel, it's the arrow at the top. https://affinity.help/publisher2/English.lproj/pages/Tools/tools_move.html In your screenshot, you have clicked inside a cell. Here's what you get if you right-click once you have clicked the Move tool.
  14. Indeed there is. Use the Tab Stops section of the Paragraph panel and the third control along from the left. Alternatively, the … control just to the right of that provides a composite controller for the three individual options to the left. In addition, it allows you to set one or more custom leader characters, as illustrated below.
  15. Change to the Move tool Single click your table to select it (ie don't click back into one of the cells) Cut (or Copy) Paste
