  1. Thank @TonyB for that information. One thing that I'd love to know, if possible, is how you are going to deal with automation which remains platform specific. Apple during the last Year WWDC announced that the future of automation on MacOSX is Shortcuts (replacing AppleScript). I have no doubts that on this year's WWDC, just next month, we will see a bigger push towards that. Windows, no doubt, have their own technology. Are there any plans to take advantage or each platform unique automation technologies?
  2. It may have something to do with the font you choose. I tried that with the lowest common denominator font – Arial – and the thin underline in LibreOffice became a thick underline in Publisher. I then tried Adobe Caslon Pro and the thickness of the underline hasn't changed in Publisher. So my suggest is try various fonts and see what you get.
  3. Hi @R C-R, You are absolutely right. I should have mentioned that in my post.
  4. Hi @MEB, I'm on MacOSX Monterey (Version 12 Beta (21A5506j). iMac (Retina 5K, 27-inch, 2017) Processor 4.2 GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i7 Memory 64 GB 2400 MHz DDR4 Attached screen recording and crash report. Affinity Photo-2021-09-13-154604.ips mockup.mov
  5. Hello @MEB. Just tested the file you've attached above. Photo crashes as soon as you double-click the first (blue) icon in the Embedded document layer. It crashes all the time. Sometimes in crashes on the first double-click other times on subsequent double-clicks.
  6. This topic has been explored ad nauseam here. Please check the forum for the pros and cons (mostly cons) of sharing IDML files between inDesign and Affinity Publisher.
  7. I would suggest to report problems on the latest betas. That beta has been superseded by (RC) on 21 July.
  8. Hi @Pauls, I checked the latest beta and I am unable to reproduce the crash I saw in my initial post. It seems that the problem has gone away. If I come across this crash again I will attach the offending file here.
  9. Unable to reproduce it all the time but when searching for soft returns and then double-clicking one of them in the found list crashes latest Publisher beta. I can only attach crash reports here. Affinity Publisher Beta_2021-07-20-200854_Middledot-iMac-3.crashAffinity Publisher Beta_2021-07-20-201217_Middledot-iMac-3.crash
  10. Thanks for the latest beta. Just noticed that the Text Wrap doesn't seem to be working in this beta.
  11. Respectfully, I disagree. Consider this scenario: I want to create a new document with all margins set to 10. I type number 10 in one of the margin fields and only then I realise that I forgot to click on the bind icon to force all fields to the same value. I click on the bind icon and I retype 10 in the same field and tab away but nothing changes. I may not have changed the value of the field but I have changed the meaning of my action by enabling the bind icon.
  12. You'll get all 10s. And you are right unlink is a better term here, I think.
  13. Hi @Old Bruce, it should be difficult. InDesign handles it beautifully. In fact, it remembers the latest input value and it changes all other fields as soon as you enable the lock. In other words, even if you forget to enable the lock, it will still apply that change to other fields as soon as the lock is enabled.
