  1. "Funny" that the Affinity Publisher internal update is less than 25 MB while the Affinity Designer and Photo 1.7.3 updates from the Mac App Store are over 400 MB, each. Does this reflect the actual update size for each application or is due to differences between distribution channels (Affinity Store vs Mac App Store)?
  2. I had exactly the same issue recently. Suddenly, any non-letter key (delete, erase forward, arrows) would add various kind of spaces or tabs, making edits quite impossible. I eventually closed down Publisher and restarted, and it went away. I had no similar issues in other opened programs. I cannot say what I was doing just before it started. Probably pasting some text from somewhere else. APub 1.7.2, MacOS 10.14.6
  3. Please, please, please: let Publisher remember the last used Area setting in the export dialogue. The default is set to "All spreads", but I _never_ use that. I want "All pages". I do not know how many times I have to re-export my file because that setting is stuck on spreads by default, independently of all other export settings that are remembered very nicely. This is _so_ annoying...
  4. Thanks @DWright for your reply. As one of the end-users, I'm not very familiar with acronyms like SSCM or GPO. We do have some central system to make software requestable for installation (that how I got AP and AD to be installed on the computer), but somehow, that require quite some preparation of the package to make it available (that I initiated). As far as I understand, the same manual preparation will be needed for each update to distribute. I was hoping this could be avoided if the apps were able to update themselves. Currently, we only have a very few installations (<10), so we are using individual licences. If interest is raising in the company and we get to a higher level, maybe that would justify some kind of multi-user license, but we are not there yet (although I try to be a good ambassador ). At the current level, it should not be a volume issue, that each installation updates itself.
  5. Hi, In a corporate environment, users usually do not have admin rights on their windows 10 machines. With Affinity apps in version 1.6.x, it's not possible to update them once installed by an administrator, because they require a separate download and to run the new installation program with admin rights. My question is, if a 1.7.1 is installed, is the update procedure for future updates different and can be expected to be able to run on the app without an admin intervention?
  6. I agree that locked items should not move in that situation. The behaviour you describe was already happening in Designer 1.6
  7. Graphic for Mac does that.

    Round Corner on a graphic

    Alternatively, you can use the picture frame object that is specific in Publisher for that kind of purpose. image_with_rounded_corners_2.mp4

    Round Corner on a graphic

    Really, this is not so difficult. It works with the same logic as Designer and Photo and is quite intuitive. You may have developed an alternative intuition with InDesign, though. image_with_rounded_corners.mp4

    Round Corner on a graphic

    Hi @BLKay. One way to do this is to place the image inside a rectangle object with rounded corners.
  11. I believe this is a UI requirement for better cat compatibility in the forum. (I may use it as well )

    White field

    @larsh: are you sure these white fields only appears while working in APub? I think I have seen similar things happening in Finder while drag and dropping tabs between windows. I think that happened while working with a connected non-retina external display to my retina MBP. I had to restart Finder to get rid of them. That happened already before APub was in beta. Somehow, I think this is more graphic card related. I would try to switch between openGL and Metal. Whatever settings you have in APub, try the other.
  13. Saw the same behaviour. Switched over to Metal, as @>|< indicated, and it was gone. By the way, what is the general recommendation regarding OpenGL vs Metal? Just the fact that this is a setting, suggests that one may be better over the other, but not always. How do I know which is better in my configuration?
  14. Not silly at all if you ask me. Affinity beta versions have 4 levels, i.e. current APub is It is displayed as such in the About window. that's great. But it's displayed with 3 levels only in the Finder info window and the auto-update dialogue, i.e. 1.7.0. At least in the later place, it's slightly frustrating, because the potential changes are in the level not displayed. I do not know how challenging it would be to align that, but that would be great (I know, I've already said that... ).

    Table cell height adjustment

    Have you tried the latest beta ( According to the post, there is a fix for table cell size spinners. On my machine, they are behaving as expected with that version.
