  1. @Pauls It looks like I raised the issue in the Publisher bugs forum around the same time that you replied. Many thanks for your response.
  2. Update: Sejda (free desktop version) worked fine for me too. The pity is for Affinity, after all the hard work done in/by Publisher, the "content creator" field is overwritten and comes up as Sejda. Some nice free advertising for them I guess.
  3. Hi. I'd like to raise this issue again. This is obviously something that multiple users would benefit from. And not, I would have thought, hard to implement. Can anyone tell me if this is on the Publisher roadmap anywhere? (PS Thanks @Neurojazz for the workaround. Though installing a whole new piece of software just to edit a link isn't my idea of fun (I'd rather not go the upload route)).
  4. Click 'More Reply Options'; bottom right. Then use 'Choose file' and 'Attach This File' bottom left. Repeat as necessary.
  5. Oh, are there that many :D? Thought there might be a list of significant issues ... maybe there are just too many little ones. AD should be getting more more of a mature product by now ... bug count should be going down! Thanks again
  6. Many thanks Alfred; that's sorted it. Is there a public log of known issues like this?
  7. Hi Folks I'm just following the For Beginners Too tutorial. In creating a compound shape I seem to be getting different behaviour to that described in the tutorial. The tutorial (from 1'13") describes non-destructively combining two shapes by selecting them and using the toolbar 'Add' whilst holding down the <Alt> key. When I do this, the resultant outline is subtly different from the combination of the two shapes. Attached are 1) The 'before' screenshot; 2) The 'after' screenshot using <Alt> + 'Add'. 3) Shows the Curve selected after performing 2), showing an excluded area within the outline. 4) Shows the correct 'after' screenshot using a destructive 'Add'. Can anyone explain why this non-destructive 'Add' isn't working as expected? Thanks
  8. -1 Generating QR codes should not be a function of graphic design software, in my humble opinion.
  9. I'd held off originally because of software compatibility issues. I was about to upgrade ... maybe I'll hold off a while longer! ;)
  10. Weird. It's fine for me in Preview. Are you all on El Cap (I see R C-R is)? I'm still on Yosemite ... be interesting to know if that was the differentiating factor.
  11. Wow, that was a journey :blink: The boolean actions are indeed very powerful. But it took a lot of experimentation to get things to work for my particular scenario. There's very little comprehensive documentation covering the nuances of so many of Designer's features and for non-designers who don't know what to look for it can be extremely difficult to fill in the blanks. The two critical pieces of "missing" information for me were 1) the difference that layer order makes to the boolean operations (found by complete accident) and 2) the need to do Layer / Expand Stroke on my curves for boolean operations to work as needed (found by a combination of trial and error and falling across an old forum post. But of course as with most experimentation and trial and error I did learn a huge amount. Many thanks for the pointer Madame.
  12. @Gear maker ... many thanks for the resampling link ... really useful ! @David4 ... excuse me if I've misunderstood your question ... but bear in mind that ProPhoto RGB is a colour space whereas resampling refers to the algorithms used for resizing. You can see the range of colour spaces offered by AP under Document / Assign ICC Profile.
  13. Aha ... "divide boolean action" ... never heard of it :) I shall read all about it and try your suggestion; thank you.
  14. Hi Folks I'd like some help achieving a particular effect in Designer. I want to reduce the opacity of an area behind some text, to increase its readability. So the end result would look like attached image 1. This is just a semi-opaque white disc between the text and background. But ... with the design against a transparent background, the disc is evident, see attached image 2. Is there a way of creating a semi-opaque circular area that give the opaqueness against the colour but retains the transparency on the background area. So that effectively means it won't matter what the overall background colour is. I'm assuming I somehow need to create a duplicate section of the disc area of the original design (the grey and purple lines) which I can then separately reduce the opacity of. But I'm not sure how to do that whilst also getting rid of the original non-opaque area ... if that makes sense! Appreciate any help.
