  1. Have you accidentally activated X-ray view mode? Resetting to Vector with View -->View Mode --> Vector should bring the colours back true.
  2. In V2, in the Character Panel, click the Collection box (typically showing "All Fonts"). From the list of Font Collections that is displayed, select "Missing Fonts"). Then click the down arrow on the right of the Font Family box. It should then show the list of missing fonts. This is in the Help file for the Character Panel: "About the Character panel The Character panel is unique in providing the ability to: List typefaces within particular collections (including Missing Fonts)."
  3. @David Rich Just a thought. I notice in your second screenshot that iCloud is showing the symbol which indicates that it is syncing your Mac with the cloud. Could it be that process is taking some time? If you download the file first, does Publisher then open it correctly?
  4. @SteveMcDonald, This may be irrelevant, but... In the screenshots, you appear to have the text frame selected, so the text wrapping settings are those of the text frame itself, not the image. Select the drop cap image, and check the text wrap settings for that. From @firstdefence's post, it looks like the image might have text wrapping set to Edge.
  5. One suggestion - in the character panel, check whether you have "No break" enabled - that forces text to ignore the frame boundary.
  6. If you apply a Black and White Adjustment layer to your photo, it will be rendered as Pure K. Note though there are various posts about pure K being converted to rich black at export time. To avoid the conversion, ensure that your export profile is the same as your document colour profile.
  7. In your workflow, would it work to use Expand Stroke on the separate curves, and then Geometry Add to combine them?
  8. You can reset the rotation. AFPub: View menu: Rotate: Reset Rotation AP: View Menu: Reset Rotation AD: View Menu: Reset Rotation If you "right click" on the canvas, the context menu includes "Reset Rotation". There are also keyboard shortcuts for it (the default seems to be Ctrl-Shift-Cmd R in AP/AD). You can also disable trackpad rotation in (Affinity) preferences: Tools: Enable Canvas Rotation with Trackpad. See here for more information: https://affinity.help/designer/English.lproj/pages/DesignAids/rotateCanvas.html
  9. From a quick (and possibly ill-informed) look at the PDF log, it seems like the problem lies with the embedded ICC profile in an image named "PdfIm_804.jpg" (though that might be an internal name for an embedded image??).
  10. Regarding (3), could you make your own crop marks, as follows: In your master page(s), create a rectangle which extends from the very top left of the current bleed area of your spread to the very bottom right. For example, if your current (and desired) bleed is 3mm (top, bottom, outside) and 0mm (inside), and your page size is A4 (210 x 297mm), then the rectangle will start at (-3,-3) with dimension (426, 303). Give this rectangle a transparent fill and a narrow stroke in a distinctive colour, to act as a visual (and possibly snapping) guide when placing items that extend beyond the edge of the page. In the document setup, increase the size of the bleed, to say 10mm (top, bottom, outside) and 0mm (inside). With the pen tool, draw short vertical lines from the very top of the new bleed area down to the top edge of the rectangle, placed in line with the left- and right-hand edges of the spread. Repeat at the foot of the spread. Likewise draw short horizontal lines from the very left of the new bleed area to the left-hand edge of the rectangle, placed in line with the top and bottom edges of the spread. Repeat on the right of the spread. (The picture shows the crop marks and the (red) rectangle marking the original bleed area, and the new bleed area in lilac). When you export now, in the export options, include bleed but not crop marks (nor any other printers' marks). The niggle with this will be if you have any page content which currently extends so far into the new bleed area that it overlaps and obscures the crop marks. You might need to juggle the layer order in those cases, or create equivalent marks local to the page rather than on the master.
  11. Do you have any hyperlinks in your document? I believe there’s an ongoing issue which causes exporting to fail if the document has any invalid hyperlinks (eg. poorly formatted email or web URL).
  12. I don’t think the text frames are moving per se - but by inserting one page, a LH page becomes RH and vice versa. So what was inner margin becomes outer margin (and vice versa), which makes it look like they moved.
  13. Which app are you using, Publisher, Designer or Photo? How did you create the ellipse text? Did you start from scratch, or have you used a template or other file from somewhere else?
  14. If you need to run it a second time, first use find/replace to change all instances of the Body First format to Body.
