  1. Thanks much Walt. Great help. That solved part of it. I did not realize that there are individual Flow Option settings for Paragraph and Character. Good news: It's (partly) solved. Bad news: Orphaned or widowed lines Flow Options don't work in a user-intuitive way. Might be good for the development team to review this. I guess I'll have to adjust orphaned or widowed lines manually now, because that's why I turned on the Flow Options in the first place. Daniel
  2. Affinity Publisher: Text in Text Frame switches to next page too soon, leaving gap. Problem: Master has text frame. Text is about 127 pages long. On some (but not all) pages the text does not fill the text frame completely. Instead, the text jumps to the beginning of the next page too soon, leaving a space gap on the current page. This happened twice in a couple of pages apart. * I activated special characters so I could see of any line breaks or page breaks caused this, but there aren't any breaks. * I deleted pages and then refilled the text, to no avail. * I inserted pages, but that did not help either. Any ideas? I believe there's a bug in Affinity Publisher. I'm attaching screenshots as well as sample file (excerpt). Thanks for looking into this. I'll also address this issue to the forum. Thanks and regards, Daniel hm_ebuch_46_transformation_v1B_error.afpub
  3. Thanks Walt. I've created a smaller AFPUB file for this e-book and loaded it onto my OneDrive Cloud (Microsoft), since the upload to this forum failed (Error -200). Here's the link: https://1drv.ms/u/s!Ah8WcBBukiKinfgcRv9In3faKyfY2A?e=5qky87 I'm also sending a screenshot collage here that shows the way the Table of Contents (TOC) actually shows up (highlighted in red) after clicking on the Update button in the TOC panel. The problem ist that the TOC does not reflect the actual layout on the pages. Thanks for looking at this. If you can't find any solution, is there anyone at Serif or the Affinity Publisher team that I could call on for help? How would I best contact them? Best, Daniel
  4. Thanks for your suggestions Walt. I have tried a number of things to no avail. * I checked all layer in the Layers pane. Found a couple of layers with empty elements, e.g., empty text frames, but nothing really noticable. * I also disconnected the text flow of the last pages to see if that helped. It didn't. There seems to be an error pattern though. The errors are consistently occurring throughout the entire e-book when a new chapter starts. Chapter headings are level 1 of the Table of Contents (TOC). It appears that consistently the very last section headings of a chapter is misplaced. It should actually appear at the beginning of the next chapter. This discrepancy occurs in every chapter. The last section heading of each chapter actually appears at the end of the previous chapter, instead of at the beginning of the next chapter, where it actually belongs. Attached are some screenshots to illustrate. Any ideas? If there were no help here in the forum, where else can I get help on an issue like this? Is there a technical support for Serif or Affinity? Thanks much. Daniel
  5. That's a great help to know how to locate existing Page Breaks. Thank much Walt, Wosven and Old Bruce. Daniel
  6. I have created a Table of Content with two levels in Affinity Publisher. See attached screenshot. The first level contains chapter headings in red. The chapter headings have been inserted through the Frame Text Tool that was placed in the Master and adjusted on each page with the chapter title and chapter number. Level two of the TOC contains section headings, which are subdivisions within a given chapter. These level two headings are reflected in the TOC in black. They are derived from text within the main Frame Text Tool, which is also placed in the Master. The problem is with level two headings (sections headings) in the TOC. They appear in the wrong order. For example, the level two heading "INSERT TEST" or "Über dieses eBuch" (About this eBook) or "Mein Ziel" (My Goal) are incorrectly positioned by the Affinity Publisher TOC under the Title Page (Titelblatt) instead of underneath Chapter 1 (Kapitel 1). Likewise, the section about "Wissens Diktatur" (Knowledge Dictatorship) should actually be underneath Chapter 2 (Kapitel 2) instead of underneath Chapter 1. I have tried different things to find or solve the issue, but to no avail. Any ideas? Thanks much, Daniel
  7. When I insert a Page Break in Affinity Publisher by going to Text > Insert > Breaks > Page Breaks, the page breaks where I had my cursor. Great, because it maintains the text flow. However, when I later decide I want to delete the Page Break, I have not found an easy way to do this. The only way to do this was by going to the History section (lower right hand corner) and deleting the action: Insert: "<PBREAK>". However, that deletes all subsequent changes or actions as well, not just the Page Break. The result is that I lose all changes and have to them, without the Page Break, of course. That's tedious. There must be a better way to do this? Any ideas? Thanks, Daniel
  8. I know I can connect to Affinity Designer or Affinity Photo when I'm in Affinity Publisher. But can I also connect to the Publisher the other way, i.e., when I'm already in the Designer? I have created a cover page for my book in Designer. Is there an interconnection from the Designer to the Publisher as well? I can't see the Publisher icon when I'm in the Designer, so I'm wondering if it's even possible. Anf it it is, how? Thanks much, Daniel
