  1. Is there a way to remove all indents from some text I'm pasting in, using Publisher? I have a lot of messy indents and want to just push all text to the left margin. I haven't yet found software that will do this. All suggestions appreciated.
  2. I'm afraid I can't follow this at all. I've gone to https://github.com/hunspell/hunspell/releases And downloaded this hunspell-1.7.0.tar.gz But it's a mass of files that I don't understand. I could not find any .aff or .dic files. Can you give me some more detailed guidance? (The MacOS dictionary is set to US English but AFP is apparently not connecting with it. I've tried restarting AFP, but no joy)
  3. This is not working for me. Is there an easy way to get a US English dictionary installed for Mac?
  4. I produced a book last year and want to use the same body style for the new book. Is there a way to export the body styles from book one and use it in book two? Thanks
  5. As an author and designer I would like to use book mockups as they have in Photoshop. Is anything in the works for this? I could not find mention of such a feature when looking for tutorials. If it is not in the works, please consider adding this. I'm sure there are workarounds, but something simple and effective would be very valuable to me. Thanks
  6. Very true. I am highlighting the main issues I'm struggling with so that they might consider doing a tutorial on those features. But so far, it's a world away from the horrors of trying to do all this in Word. Somehow I managed eight books that way ...
  7. This is gold Walt, thanks. As a visual learner I would follow this better in a video. I'm new to AP obviously, and learning a lot. In future all this would be way easier and quicker if I can apply the strategy you outline. I don't know if you make videos, but this would be a great one to make available.
  8. How would I do this when creating a footer style? I can't seem to get it this to apply to all pages in the book.
  9. It seems the way to get this working was to copy and cut all the text, then paste it back in without formatting. It then seemed to work as intended.
  10. In the Section Manager panel, it would be handy to be able to double click on the section on the left and go to the page.
  11. In a book chapter I'm making some changes to leading etc, but am having to change every text frame individually as I cannot see how to apply the changes to all linked text frames. I have highlighted all text but still the frames are being treated as unlinked. How would I link them in order to 'bulk' edit?
  12. Sorry - I'm not getting this. When I turn it on it is only acting on one frame at a time. I want to apply it to all linked frames. When I adjust the grid spacing it seems to alternately shrink and expand the spacing, not move only in one direction as you would expect. Again, a video walkthrough would be helpful.
  13. Where is this menu mac? In German I only know the words for squirrel and matchbox.
  14. When enabling baseline grid, all my carefully laid out headers, footers and titles are thrown way out. Is there a way to avoid this? Can I restrict baseline grid behaviors to the text columns alone and leave headers and footers unaffected? If I apply it to the top margin the footers are still affected. It also changes the body style, opening up huge spaces between paragraphs.
  15. Having had such horrible nightmares with trying to do book layout with Word - and having created a working book without using Section Manager - I am somewhat resistant to going there in the final tweaking process. However, I see the utility of Section Manager to some extent, and would like to work with it with confidence. So please Affinity, consider making a tutorial video on this feature. The tutorial series is excellent and I have produced a book in a week based on this guidance, and the excellent support in the forums.
  16. For the opening sections of the book I need to use Roman numerals but am blanking in how to approach this. How do I do this?
  17. I have uploaded a book draft to Kindle Direct Publishing for the paperback. However, KDP's previewer only recognizes single pages, so they are effectively cutting out every right handed page. It seems I need to export the file as single pages rather than spreads. Does anyone know how to fix this? I don't see an export option which produces single pages. Is there a way to convert spreads to single pages then export?
  18. Does anyone know of a good video tutorial on the section manager? I couldn't find anything obvious. At the moment I am creating masters with the running heads for the various sections, and just applying or clearing masters in order to make do. But is the section manager something I ought to be using for some good reason? Thanks
  19. I did use the rectangle tool, and cannot explain why it ended up as a pixel layer. I'll experiment and see if I can get it working as intended. Cheers Walt
