  1. Nice to have you on board but you should have checked what other people have already said about missing functionality in Publisher. Everybody is aware that Publisher has some way to go to reach feature parity with other more established software. Rome was not built in a day. I'm sure you will be able to contribute constructively in your posts here.
  2. You are absolutely right. The export dialog allows one to select pages to be PDFed. So, really, no need to worry about hiding a page to exclude it from export. One can PDF pages one needs.
  3. Hiding pages makes sense only if they are not facing pages, I suppose. The best way to handle this scenario is to have an option for Pages to PDF in the Export Dialog. What we already have in the print Dialog.
  4. This most certainly would be a very useful option.
  5. Maybe the developers could add Import and Export buttons to Preferences >Abbreviations.
  6. I've downsampled the screencast a bit. I hope it works now. cog.mov
  7. I have a different view on this. I don't work for Affinity so I can't say it for certain, but my feeling is that the initial release as envisioned by the team was not meant for long publications. The Long Document features would be added at a later stage. Problem is, people expected this feature from the word go. This has nothing to do with the team being more transparent. I think the devs and the Affinity Team are transparent in as far as they can be. Anyway these are my 2¢.
  8. There seems to be a small problem with updating section names within the Section Manager Window. The Section Name changes only when hitting either the tab or the return key. If you close the window with Close button nothing happens. It seems to me that the close button should register the change automatically. Screen Recording 2018-10-14 at 15.07.35.mov See the video.
  9. I'm not sure why that is. Try again. The video plays for me no problem.
  10. It's quite well baked if you asked me. Presets are additional shapes that can be created from the standard shapes, except that you can save them rather than recreate them from starch all the time. Have a look at this short video. Screen Recording 2018-10-14 at 05.53.46.mov
  11. It is going to be very difficult to come up with something better than inDesign I'm afraid. Yes, and we need it badly in Publisher.
  12. This might be coming from the Word document. That's why it's very important to understand that the Word files carry with them formatting instructions, unless you save it as .rtf or .txt file.
  13. The quickest way to accomplish what you want is to create a table with the right numbers of rows and columns but keep it empty except of the first cell. And then just copy the text from here for example: https://www.timeanddate.com/calendar/?year=2019&country=9 and paste it to your table. But make sure that you select all the cells from that link, even the invisible ones. Hope this helps.
