  1. Here you go. I had to disable Minion Pro again in Adobe Fonts to get the crash to happen again. There are no visible instances of Minion Pro in the document, but if I look at the font manager it shows it as required. Does it not for you? The bullet points on the first paragraphs I select here were originally glyphs from Minion Pro, but I replaced them in the InDesign file to test whether that was the cause. It used to crash on those paragraphs before the change, and it doesn't now. I think they must still be defined in the paragraph style for the second paragraph I click on, even though it's actually using a numbered list. Screen_Recording_2020-07-16_at_13_43_47.mov
  2. Done. I've embedded the images. All the non-default fonts are from Typekit though, so I don't think I can upload those? The one that's missing on my machine, and that I think is causing the crash, is Minion Pro. I'll redownload that from Typekit now and see if the problem goes away. Edit: Confirmed. With the font in place, the crash goes away.
  3. Also just came looking for this as I thought it was a bug. If a colour in a swatch is a global colour, it should be a global colour wherever you select it from, not only some places.
  4. I've come back to Publisher this week after not having used it for a couple of months, and it seems to be crashing all the time. I don't know how many minor updates I've missed, so I can't say exactly when it started. But I'd never had any problems before, even in beta. Today I'm working with an IDML file. The other day, when I also had problems, I was working with a file that had been very heavily modified, but which was also originally created from an IDML import. At the moment, I'm trying to use the paragraph studio to locate a missing font. With the cursor in a text box, the app crashes to desktop every time I click on the tab to open the paragraph studio. Or I can open the paragraph studio, but if I then click to place the cursor in a text box, the app crashes to desktop. It looks like it might only be caused by paragraphs with bullets or numbering, but I'm not absolutely sure. Creating new paragraphs and formatting with bullets and numbering in Affinity seems to work fine, but applying a text style with bullets on from the IDML file causes a crash. It's possible the bullet point used by the style might be the missing font, but I can't confirm that, as I can't view it without the app crashing! Crash report attached. Publisher 1.8.3. Catalina 10.15.5. Affinity Publisher_2020-07-15-162046_Jamess-MacBook-Pro.crash Edit: Confirmed, I've checked the source file in InDesign and the bullet point is using the missing font. If I change the bullet point and re-export the IDML I can click on that paragraph no problem, but the crash still occurs as soon as I move the cursor to another paragraph still using the old style.
  5. Also looking for a way to disable the colour picker. It’s absolutely maddening. I’m on an iPad Air 2, so sketching with my finger, and don’t have the precision of an Apple Pencil. I keep switching the colour to the white background, making drawing very frustrating.
  6. On further investigation, on Mac I seem to be able to position assets wherever I want in the panel if I drag them in from the document. If I create them from the hamburger menu they just go to the bottom of the list, and there's no way to reorder them once they're in.
  7. As per this thread: It currently seems possible to arrange items in the assets panel by dragging, but only on Windows. This functionality doesn’t seem to work on Mac at all. I’m on Catalina on a mid 2015 15” MacBook Pro.
  8. OK, that does sound like it might be a Mac only but then, ‘cause I’ve tried and tried, and dragging definitely doesn’t seem to do anything.
  9. Even dragging doesn't seem to do anything for me. If I drag an item between subcategories there's what looks like an insertion point, as though it would move the item into the new subcategory. But when I release the drag it just snaps back to where it was. Trying to drag to a new location within the same subcategory doesn't do anything. When I release it just snaps back to where it was. I've tried in both list and icon view, and I've restarted Publisher. No luck.
  10. Just started working with the Assets panel. Am I missing something obvious, or is there really no way to sort it at all?
  11. I was when I started, but now I'm halfway through the task I was trying to achieve! Thanks.
  12. Oh, thanks. So it's only possible by dragging? You can't specify the grid origin exactly in relation to the spread origin?
  13. Is this possible in 1.7.3? I can't seem to find an option in the Grid Manager?
  14. I've been checking out some of the new tutorials now Publisher is out of beta, and I've been struck with a way that I could dramatically improve my current InDesign workflow using sections and master pages. Is it possible to export all the sections in a document as separate PDFs with one action, in much the same way you might export all the slices in Designer?
  15. I've just received the preorder e-mail, and I'm excited for the launch. Presumably though, this special beta price is for the Serif store only? I'm torn, because I know Serif will get more money if I buy direct, and I'd love to support them, but my Photo and Designer licences are both from the Mac App Store, and I'd prefer to have everything in one place. Will the Mac App Store be launching with the standard 20% discount mentioned in the e-mail? What about the free font pack that seems to be added to the order? Will App Store buyers be able to claim that?
