  1. Can we expect Czech localisation as well in feature?
  2. And that is still true. I really wish this would got more attention. I still keep all longer text projects in Indesign CS6 as it has much better paragraph composing results with much less effort. +1
  3. In my latest experiment with Publisher, I worked with spot color Pantone 659C. When used in paragraph decoration (top line in my case), the color was always exported as CMYK. Rest of the document was correctly exported as Pantone 659C. Any idea how to fix this or it is a bug? Would be great if „Text color“ option would be added to color options in decorations. But that is another story…
  4. I am trying Affinity Publisher to create book (300 pages). Adjusting basic text frame on master pages (when adjusting book size etc.) is a way to slow. It is almost impossible to change it! Publisher probably instantly redraws all pages… what might be a nice feature for a poster, but in this scenario, it makes no sense.
  5. Better option to resize multiple spreads is to use Spread setup button in toolbar: This way, You are able to choose if You want to work with Curent/All/Selected spreads. Right click Spread properties doesn't allow this. However, spread resizing is quite unreliable: I have experienced all pages content loss. Resizing of text frame on master page on 300 pages book is almost impossible - it is so slow…
  6. We hear a lot about plugins for Affinity Photo. But what about plugins for Designer – any plans? Third party plugins might bring desired functions, like https://astutegraphics.com for Illustrator…
  7. Thanks for point this out, I would miss that otherwise! However, the columns might be set symmetrically only right now, is that correct?
  8. This „small thing“ is reported for Affinity Designer from its very beginning and never got any attention, I'm afraid. But I agree that fixing this would be a massive plus, that would be more than massive plus, that would be Christmas in July! EDIT: It is fixed! Thanks to all Affinity developers! This would save me so many time! Can't wait for Designer update…

    Designer file import bugs

    Thanks for the tip. Unfortunately, it didn't work for me (at least in this case). But will keep it in mind…

    Designer file import bugs

    Hi Chris, thanks for the explanation about text issues. Would 1.7 eventually convert/correct such bugs? Guides are not imported for me. So You are lucky to get them. My guides manager show no guides for the document. Hopefully be fixed too. Chhers
  11. Importing Designer (Last MAS version) to Publisher (1.7.0140) is not smooth as it should be. I have run into those bugs: margins are not imported guides are not imported some text frames looks different (see screenshots attached) Note: Sorry I have to delete rest of design, but I could not share more client's details. publisher imports designer with bugs.afdesign
  12. Reading designer file in Publisher results in some broken text, missing margins and guides. Is this known issue and would be targeted eventually in feature betas? Is that related to older file format?
  13. I have recently tried to work with long text (book), +300 pages in Publisher. Until we have some serious tools to correct text (prepositions, smart quotes, GREP etc.) I decided to do some of that work using find & replace. But that works really slow. I mean really slow. I tried the same in INDD CS6 (and Pages) and those apps made the find & replace almost instantly on the same text (yes, long one). Not really bug, but Find & Replace in Publisher need some tuning I guess Thanks for fast implementation of replacing something with „nothing“ in the latest beta. It is really helpfull.

    GREP find/replace

    +1 for this. I have also tried to replace one-letter prepositions manually (find and replace SPACE+'i'+SPACE replace with SPACE+'i'+NON-BREAKABLE SPACE…) just to try it. It takes years to replace all findings in book long text. It should work faster. Otherwise very excited about Publisher so far.
