    One more nudge distance option.

    InDesign has one logical and very useful feature. When you click on up/down arrow next to a value field, it is rounded to the nearest whole number and the next clicks are in steps of +1/-1. No decimals after that.
  2. Hi, Manual rotation of the object (with handle) does not recognize choosen rotation reference point in Transform panel. It always rotate it from center.

    Still no need for another Persona. BTW, in my 25+ years long career I never used Story Editor in PageMaker, InDesign or Quark. I always wanted to see how changes reflect to complete layout.

    "Story Persona"? What for? For something that can occupy 1 or 2 rows of info? IMO Persona is created if only: there are too many tools connected together, or; there is no room on the workspace, or; just for clarity.

    Thank you Patrick for your effort. I'm always willing to help people if I can. But translating foreign languages just to see what the author had to say and even with "Google Translate" which is not good enough... It will turn into galimatias if everybody starts to write in its mother tongue. English is choosen as lingua franca at least at this forum just because of efficency.

    It is not a war. Just simple logic. It is much easier for the user who wants help to make an effort and translate the text into English, instead everyone who would like to help him.

    А бе, глупава логика имаат. Наместо тој што бара помош да се помачи да преведе со Гугл, треба да се мачат сите оние што сакаат да му помогнат.

    Во ред. Бидејќи англискиот јазик не е мој мајчин јазик, а со цел подобро да се разбереме, отсега ќе пишувам пораки само на македонски. Ви благодарам на разбирањето.

    What about if you have 10+ threads? Or imagine this. Let's say you work on an encyclopedia which has 20+ text boxes on each page and they are 200+ in total. What then?

    No need for that. There are 3 casses: By default, the text info is for the whole document. If you select text then it is just for the selection. If there are multiple threads, with CTRL-A you can select the text in a specific thread and you will have the info for it.

    it is called "text thread". Addition: # of chars with and without spaces.
  13. Thanks for the update. Because Studio Link depends on synchronicity between all 3 apps, you should consider of announcing updates of all of them at same time.

    By default the info would be for the whole document regardless the connection of the frames. If you select some text then the info would be for selected text only.
  15. Hi, here is my feedback while working on a long document in Publisher: There is a need for a modifier key (CTRL) for temporary acivating "View Tool" ("Hand Tool" or "Scroll Tool" maybe) in both cases -- while working on text or not. ID has 2 modifiers: ALT when working on text and SPACE when text box is not active. This is rather confusing and can lead to mistakes. I often get duplicated text box or text style when using ALT key in ID. To select multiple paragraphs which are not on the same page in Publisher can be done only by click and drag. The disadvantage of this method is that when you approach to the last pareagraph the scrolling is much faster and you need to go back and forth until you find the last paragraph. In ID you can click on the first paragraph and SHIFT click on the last one which is impossible in Publisher because the text boxes are not active (selected/editable) and the focus is lost. (bug?) When I change the value for the "Text Styles > Paragraph > Spacing > Left Indent" in a text style, the value for the "First Line Indent" is changed, too. This is rather unfamiliar and confusing for those users who work with ID or QXP. IMO the best place for the first two options in "Text Styles > Language" which are "Spelling" and "Hyphenation" is in "Paragraph > Hyphenation" Section and for the other two -- somewhere in "Typography" section.

    In QXP and ID if you change the value for the "left indent", the value for the f"irst line indent" is not changed.

    You obviously didn't understand me. I'm not speaking about indents.
  18. You can find on internet a lot of books and book covers templates. Most of them can be easily imported into Publisher (Photo or Designer).

    It would be nice if it is placed on the info line at the bottom of the app and always visible. If text is selected, the info would be about the selection, otherwise for the whole document.

    Yes, it works, but it is too clumsy. You can zoom in/out by accident. Someone can consider it a bonus, but not me.

    Hey, it works!!! Obviously I didn't read your instruction carefully. I thought you were talking about #2. Thanks Mike.

    No, it doesn't work.
  24. I found this link to PDF test on an Quark FB page: https://pdf-aktuell.ch/pa/language/en/disastrous-pdf-x-4-compatibility-with-new-affinity-publisher/?fbclid=IwAR3RmRuzr2-OpoZe0z4PNKRlJ83mqilHNJjGgQ1kv-zVwUWbcHs_Vwpifns
