  1. I tried out the beta Publisher on a copy of a 300 page book. Good news and bad news. When the file opened, the text flow was messed up with lots of extra space added throughout the book, turning 300 pages into nearly 400. This extra space could not be deleted; it just moved around. The good news is that it is now very quick to add new text, whether early on, or in the middle or at the end of the book. There was no problem with a large format Blurb book containing 150 images and text.
  2. Here is a sample document of a similar length to the working document. This is on APub 1.7.3, purchased. I am using Mac 10.10.5, with 2.6 GHz Intel Core i5 Speed-test.afpub
  3. Hello Jon P, No, sorry, I won't upload the file. It's the first draft of a manuscript.
  4. I have tried that with the Pages Panel and tried about everything else; it makes no difference. Maybe if the whole document weren't flowing but was distinctly separated into chapters that might be better. It's too complicate to do that now. Anyway I think the system ought to be able to cope with a long document. I have given up on Publisher for this document. I see from the forums other people seem to be having the same problem. I'm afraid it's back to Indesign for now.
  5. I am not using beta. 'Updates' says 1.7.3 is the latest bought version.
  6. I am using 1.7.3 I have been working on a fairly long document, about 55,000 words. If I type in a sentence, perhaps just 10 words, it’s more than one and a half minutes before the sentence is entered into the page. A few corrections might mean another minute’s wait. It’s ridiculous. Restarting and closing all other programmes makes no difference. I have had to go back to InDesign on this document until something improves. There are 305 pages with these dimensions: 5 in x 8 in (13 cm x 20 cm). It is just simple text throughout with no images and all pages are linked.
  7. I am no using the beta version but the latest release. I just could not find anywhere else to make this post. I'll move it across now.
  8. There are 305 pages with these dimensions: 5.125 in x 8.25 in (13.017 cm x 20.955 cm). It is just simple text throughout with no images and all pages are linked. Duncan

  10. I have just done a test on file sizes. I embedded images on to 10 A4 pages with the Picture Frame and Place Image Tools. Then I linked images on to 10 new A4 pages. Then I simply dragged images on to 10 new A4 pages. After saving the files, I found they were all the same size. How come? Surely the file with the Linked images should be considerably smaller.

  11. Thank you to MEB and Fixx. So it seems when PSD allow upsizing in their Raw panel, they are just offering a convenience rather than giving any real benefit.
  12. Hello, Is it possible to resize a Raw file up to a larger size? I know resizing can be done in Photo Persona, but that is too late. I want to do it in Develop Persona while still working on the Raw file.
  13. Wish One A means of viewing and editing a batch of Raw files and then avoiding Camera Raw. Wish Two A lens profile for the Nikon 17-55. Doing a panorama where each section needs several exposures and HDR means every image has to be treated individually. AP does not retain the settings in a DNG file. All this means there is no point in doing the job in AP. Wish Three A way to add metadata into the final image. Duncan Wh
  14. Got it. I've just discovered the hidden right-click option for customising the toolbar. Duncan
  15. On my screen, in Develop persona there is no Develop Assistant button on the top bar. It only appears after I click 'Develop' then surely I'm no longer in Raw. In the new 'Maximising Raw Latitude' the top bar looks like my developed bar. Duncan
