  1. Don't know about CS6, but on the Mac, some CS5(.5) apps I could actually only update offline because the built-in Adobe online updater stopped working. That was literally a pain in the ass when reinstalling on a fresh drive a few years ago because e.g. some of the Illustrator CS5 update installers were meanwhile only available via archive.org. See also my posts in this thread: community.adobe.com/t5/illustrator-discussions/adobe-illustrator-cs5-15-0-2-update-link-is-broken/m-p/11447464 Other than that, my decade old CS5/5.5 apps still work happily on El Capitan, with all their network connections to the mothership being blocked by Little Snitch anyway. Apart from Acrobat, I hardly ever need them.

  3. Jo tak ty seš jeden z těch tří lidí, co ji čet?! No tak to mě běž hochu hned udat…
  4. Interesting approach! It's in fact amazing that there are that many possible workarounds. Every one of them may be quite useful in certain specific scenario. That said, I would still rather appreciate a direct fix for the Paragraph Decorations in the next Affinity update. Time to post a feature request, I guess.
  5. … all of which workarounds – retrospectively – somewhat remind me of the XPress 3 & 4 or even InDesign 2.0 (pre CS) days. As in: The 20th century has called and wants its layout software back. Oh well.
  6. Ah, now I get it! It's not the same one as your screenshot above. Yeah, that's a valid workaround. However, you can also simply apply a text frame fill to the inline pinned heading frame. Or convert any other shape to text frame and pin it inline. So your approach slightly overshoots the actual target… The drawback remains that the heading will be separated from the rest of the text.
  7. That's true, but you still cannot use them as a floating background decoration, because every pinned object floats above the text frame.
  8. But the text is now doubled on the page. That could lead to potential ink issues in print, considering the shaky overprint functionality in Affinity. Anyway… as noted, it's just a "proof of concept", not a serious solution.
  9. Měl bych k tomu ovšem i dodat: Děti, nezkoušejte si tohle na počítači vašeho tatínka, jinak z toho bude pěknej vejprask!
  10. Na Macu je to čistě technicky možné: Stačí si vybrat jeden z existujících překladů jako třeba /Applications/Affinity Designer.app/Contents/Resources/de.lproj a vyměnit tam všechna německá slova ve všech souborech *.strings za česká.
  11. Yeah, that's what I've figured out already in my previous post. But thanks for confirming. :)
  12. Stuff like that usually ends up with vector objects being rasterized on PDF/X-3 export. My patience to work around those issues is meanwhile highly limited. *** ^ Turns out that it's an absolutely pointless workaround for this purpose because text gradient is static, with a fixed position relative to the frame bounds (face palm). So the only usable dynamic workaround ultimately is a temporarily pinned object set to Multiply, then unpin and place to background. Or back to InDesign, which is what I did for the actual layout that I had to do today.
  13. @NotMyFault, thanks for your attempts to help… … but my main question has been answered already. Workarounds in the pixel domain are out of question. In that sense, the best workaround here remains one of my own: cheers!
