  1. Not sure now, where are u going with this and how it is related to the topic... And yes, of course it is! Thats when you choose if the content is linked or not. One change in source file reflects immediately on all instances through entire publication, that's the point right? Ok, now I see. Painting/drawing nice and lovely designs - yeah, who cares about invisible object. And why would we? All the tips'n'tricks and workarounds above do well. You can do a pretty magazine with lovely pictures, but that's only the half of the job. The other half is doing a precise DTP, heavy conte
  2. Yeah, this is cool. Getting closer. But not really there, considering linked content. And a lot of linked content...
  3. If you're fine with it and it works for you, that's great. For me, due to amount of objects - not a chance.
  4. Thanks for the tips loukash, but I'm afraid option #1 has been discussed a few times here in the posts above, and not recognised as a solution. The problem is obvious - select all shows the objects, but when you select one, others disappear. I would call #1 as a "temporary location preview". Or a mind game like: select all, choose one, and remember where the other are. Bad guess? Try again - select all, choose one... and again. It's more of a "loop" or "going round in circles" than a workaround and definitely not a workflow. Really not. It's about editing, arranging, moving, scal
  5. Hi, yes. It's even worse... much worse. I made a few picture frames with linked content. After modifying the source image - only the color change and switch back to Publisher and update (automatic update is ON), all the picture frames lost (!) its content except for the one that has its properties set to "None". - see pics attached Seems like the manual update (automatic update is OFF) keeps the content, but way out of its position. Sometimes even out of the page - pic 3. And the visibility of frame is gone, and the other pic frames keeps crossed even with new content placed.
  6. Sure they are visible on top of something dark, not sure what you mean. We are talking about the frame edges of "white filled" objects (that are not on colored backgound) and "no stroke/no fill" objects are not visible, so you don't know where they are on the page and/or where they end. And that inevitably lead to a faulty output illustrated in that example. And the other example posted by Medical Officer Bones.
  7. This is the an older one, but since the 1.9.1 is out, just a bit of my view. The straigth visibility of EVERY object on the page should be the essential and a basic feature of any layout/publishing software. The reason is obvious - you need an absolute control of everything on the page to end up with correct and reliable output. The question of this topic has been answered in a first 4 posts - it is not possible (yet). And I have to agree with guys above, the rest are just helping workarounds (and excuses), which are working only partially, but mainly - slow down the workflow sig
  8. Yes, since the very very old times, the Alt key allows panning no matter what’s selected or active, even in InDesign (when in text frame). The spacebar is commonly used as pan tool and makes sense, unless you work with the text, then you are just adding spaces... In affinity the middle mouse does the job (mouse wheel click) without touching any key.
