  1. This is a huge disappointment. I agree that innovation is a desirable thing. But, as other pointed out, basic features like global layers, used for ages in other DP apps, should be taken seriously into consideration. I really regret investing my money in Publisher. I guess I'm stuck with Indesign after all. Really sad. And that is not the only gripe I have with Publisher. I won't go into all of them. The layers issue is big enough for me. But the styles sheets and color palettes are also problematic and confusing. Or at least over complicated. I didn't start with DP yesterday. I work on this before computers were used in art departments, for crying out loud. And have been using DP since the early nineties. So, I kind of know a couple of things about what is expected from a desktop publishing app. I see the logic behind the single document concept that Serif took. But that just don't work for everything. Best of luck.
  2. A real shame that font metadata is not used properly by foundries and neither by font managers. At least is what is seems. Maybe some sort of AI could be used to determine if there is serif, non serif, non straight... and so forth in the fonts to categorize them. Or maybe a community maintained DB with font names associated to styles Anyway, a killer feature in my opinion. Cheers.
  3. Oh, that would be very nice indeed :) though I think that separated font sets by app is not something to dismis, but I admit that it may be be too much to ask. I'm thinking in the different scenarios or working in graphic design vs editorial/page layout vs web design, for example. Overkill, anyone? XD
  4. Actually, I think that by now this should be a global, system managed, standard feature in Mac OS X. Count me in :)
  5. Actually I don't think it is the same thing, the subset in the road map refers to the PDF font embeding subseting, I think.
  6. I think that since Mountain Lion OS the Save As menu item is back, kind of hidden, but it is there pressing the alt key while the File menu is visible. You can make it available all the time following the instructions in the link below. I did and forgot about the duplicate option forever :) http://osxdaily.com/2012/08/27/enable-save-as-os-x-mountain-lion/ Hope it helps you.
  7. This is something that should have existed since the dawn of time. Instead we need to juggle through hundred of useless fonts, some of them are not event supposed to be available to the user (hello Adobe and Microsoft) as those are used by the Apps UI. Some sort of list to uncheck font familties and have them removed from the font menu. Nice idea in my opninion.
  8. This always drove me really mad about Illustrator, things look aligned, and sometimes even there are snapping guides in place, just to zoom in and found objects are fractions of points apart. Really annoying. I think that as with most UI things, this definitely should be optional. Though I prefer the UI elements not anti-aliased. Cheers!
  9. Maybe in the future you guys can dev an user defined shortcuts map to assign any key to any menu item/function. Thank you!
  10. I was not aware that this was not possible. This is an absolutely must have basic feature.
  11. Actually, what could be done is that at the time of the type to path conversion, the text object could be 'stored' as hidden data for the path group in some way as to have it available if you change your mind, so you could always revert to the original text, this obviously should happen behind the scenes, and not activated by the user. Or even better, maybe have a live 'convert to path' filter to manipulate the path and keep the text attributes 'live' to have both worlds. That would be great :)
  12. I also "just set up an account on this forum specifically to make this request " :) Other users already explained the matter in detail so I won't do that. Suffice to say that GUI and usability are quite sensitive topics and this it is a really important subject. Please give the user the option to choose the UI brightness. Thank you all.
