  1. Yes. Interestingly, when I first reopened the app to try this out this morning, the Preflight panel did not display, even though I had found the menu option to display it after my OP. However after turning on the panel via the menu, the panel subsequently worked correctly even after re-opening the app. So effectively, having been through that cycle again, I am now unable to reproduce the error. Edited to add: "Working" refers both to the button on the export dialog and the preflight bell in the bottom left of the window.
  2. I'm just back from the pub ... there's only one time-zone in my little world
  3. I'd just come back to the forum to say just that ... I'd found that option and it works; including showing the panel from the two scenarios in my OP. But thank you for the quick response at this time of night Surely this should have been enabled by default though? Especially as a touted new feature.
  4. I've just upgraded to 1.8.1. I opened an existing afpub file, which suggests preflight issues (red bell). If I try and export then the "Preflight warnings" dialog is displayed. If I click on "Open Preflight" nothing happens; i.e. I don't see the Preflight panel. If I double-click the red bell I don't see the Preflight panel. Am I missing something? I'm on Mojave 10.14.6.
  5. @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.
  6. Hi Folks Absolutely loving Publisher. However ... ... I'm trying to insert a link to a phone number as a URL in a pdf. For the link to work the format should be something like "tel:+44123456789". The only available (and appropriate) option in Publisher to create this link is URL. However if you put "tel:+44123456789" as the URL then the exported pdf contains the link "https://tel:+44123456789", which is invalid. I believe either 1) the output URL should be formatted correctly or 2) a URL of the format "tel:+44123456789" should flag as invalid at the time of input (if the URL box is not intended to hold a phone number). See also this thread ... Link for telephone numbers. Publisher version 1.7.3, MacOS Mojave 10.14.6.
  7. 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.
  8. 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)).
  9. Click 'More Reply Options'; bottom right. Then use 'Choose file' and 'Attach This File' bottom left. Repeat as necessary.
  10. 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
  11. Many thanks Alfred; that's sorted it. Is there a public log of known issues like this?
  12. 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
  13. -1 Generating QR codes should not be a function of graphic design software, in my humble opinion.
  14. I'd held off originally because of software compatibility issues. I was about to upgrade ... maybe I'll hold off a while longer! ;)
