  1. What would be really really helpful would be if Affinity could open and use MS Publisher files, but save them as Affinity. That way, I would not have to totally re-work all of my .pub files from scratch. There are several programs that will open and use .doc Word files and .docx, so why not .pub?? Michael
  2. On page 14 and 15 you can see it has two page breaks. Neither are there in the original. You can push the text down and it will do down but always break at those words. Dark Night-1.afpub
  3. I noticed that every time I went to the Hyphenation section as shown above that it showed off, I turned it on yet again and then moved my cursor to another paragraph and it was off-- LOL. You cannot just turn it on, you have to select the entire document and then turn it on! This program works a lot different from MS Publisher.
  4. I copied and pasted from WPS docx file after deleting all unused styles. But nothing in that file changes from one style to another, I have never encountered that issue before. But since I know about it I can fix it in the future. Thanks for everyone's help. Michael
  5. If default is same style why did I run into this issue? I did not change it.
  6. That is when many users want to change styles? Yeah, if you are creating a poster, or an advert, but this program is not image maker or photoshop or some designer program it is "Publisher," which mean LOTS of text which is mostly going to be the same. And why would you want to set it up so that when you hit return it goes to that other style? That would only be useful if you are going back and forth between two styles all the time. LOL WHO DOES THAT? Not when you are doing a book. There are literally millions of indie authors out there who need a really good program to use to produce their books for Amazon. Then there are the millions of students producing a thesis. This program should be set up for PUBLISHERS not for advertisers.
  7. I have used several different programs for many years and have never heard of any such thing. And why would they make it default to change styles just because you hit return? That is really dumb. But I am glad there is a fix for the problem. Thanks much.
  8. According to what I see in your pic, you just typed a letter, I did not type a letter I hit return, since there needs to be 7 spaces at the top of a chapter.
  9. Even in the middle of a chapter if I put the cursor at the end of a paragraph at the return it will jump to the other nothing style, but if I put it in front of the first character of the next paragraph and hit return it will give me another line of the same format.
  10. Page 23 is the page currently set for a new chapter and it has one line, then I hit return and it jumped. A Short History of the Church in the US-1.afpub
  11. There is a lot I like about this program, but it is so aggravating in many ways. I have a text style that I want to use for the main body and delete all unused styles. I have a page up and with one line of nothing on it set to the right style, but when I hit the return key it creates another line of a different style! At the start of a chapter I want 7 lines, I cannot just hit the return 7 times, sometimes it works but often it will jump to some other style I don't even have. Here is a shot of the no style it creates. Notice the top part it says "Font: Arial; Font weight:" That is not even there until I hit the return, but I hit the return several times successfully then it jumped to the other. THIS IS A REAL PAIN.
  12. That was the issue, I opened a new document and deleted all styles, the copied a page of text first with WPS and it showed NoStyle NoStyle, then deleted it and copied the same page but from LibreOffice and it showed Normal NoStyle, so I was then able to edit the style. Seems to be an issue between WPS and Affinity. Thanks for your help!
  13. Perhaps the cause is that I was not using LibreOffice, but WPS. I will try Libre and see what happens.
