  1. Thanks @Chris B for looking into this. I'm on Ventura 13.6 (22G109) (I think it's Beta 7). Do you also have all the files listed in the Windows Menu link like in the post of @Return? I don't get that either.
  2. Are you on a Mac? I remember that was the case in earlier betas. This must be Mac specific as the arrow is missing in the lates beta. I would also expect all windows to be added to the Window Menu as in other apps.
  3. When opening more than 1 file (in my case 8 in the video below) there is always a one file missing from the tab display. The missing file is alway a random file. Firstly, the files open in random order (which I'd prefer to be in the Finder order), and Secondly, one file is never displayed as a tab but is still there. I have to close all the tabs to get to the missing/invisible file. This could be MacOSX bug only. Please see the video below. missing.mov
  4. I haven't checked previous 2.2.0 Publisher betas but the latest Publisher Beta 2.2.0 (1971) is having problems displaying Character Styles in Running Headers if that text also happens to be a Paragraph Style with a Drop Cap enabled. There may be other reasons for that of course. I haven't checked it extensively but the below video shows the problem. I'm switching here between 2.1.1 and the latest beta 2.2.0 (1971). header.mov I'm also attaching the doc below. Bible-refs-2.afpub
  5. I don't think this has got anything to do with your template. What I would suggest to do is to select the text (Control/Command-A) and copy copy it (Control/Command-C). Then delete the 2 existing text frames, create a new one and paste the text there. Finally apply the paragraph style you need. This should solve your problem.
  6. Apologies for hiding my earlier post @Hangman. I reran the test with the Find Field: (.)+ and then I got the same results as Walt. One might argue that we don't need anything in the Find Field to find all occurrences of italics. It seems that the Find Field trumps any additional specs included in the Format Dialog which might be a bug.
  7. I thought about similar things in the past regarding Preflight's Text Patterns and I came to a conclusion that being able to add your own GREP patters to the Preflight Panel would solve all these these and other potential issues not listed here.
  8. Hello @garrettm30, I think we should not conflate custom fields and running headers into one thing. They should remain separate because they serve different purposes. Custom fields are just that. They contain the text you decide to have like, Date, Magazine Number, Issue Name, etc. Running Headers instead, are driven by Text Styles, Paragraph Styles or Character Styles. You do not get to decide what goes into those field. The program pulls that information from the pages. So, while custom Fields are global, the Running Headers are not and can change according to the content on the page. If you search for the discussion on Running Headers you will find that the bible problem was discussed already and we need very little to make the running headers in the bible work.
  9. Adding a panel to a collapsed series of panels makes the merged panels disappear from view on macOS. This might be MacOS specific. The video below illustrates the problem. panel.mov
  10. A visual cue like that would certainly be very helpful, I agree. 🙂
  11. Hello @philipt18, I hope I'm not misunderstanding you but you can do it already. Just right-mouse click on the number in a footnote, select Notes -> Go to Note Reference from the menu that appears and the cursor will move to the end of the footnote number in the text.
  12. Thanks @walt.farrell, that works because each field is separately accessing each page independently, which I have had that working initially. I was hoping that I would be able to combine that into one preset like the one below. references2.afpub but I don't think this is possible at the moment. What the Affinity Team might consider is to allow combining saved presets into more complicated presets. For example having saved presets below: Begin Span End Span We could then combine them like: Begin Span – End Span. But ideally, we should be able to do it all in one preset.
  13. I'm trying to make work the following Cross-Reference format: pages 56-58, but no matter what I do the saved preference remembers only the last page number 58-58. For the first number I would target a Paragraph style and add Page to the preset field then for the second page number I would target another Paragraph style that would be a few pages beyond the initial page and then add it to the preset field and save the preset. However, like I said above, the preset only remembers the last page.
  14. Try Navigator and create your own zoom presets there.
