  1. I downsample for submission to journal (this is an illustration for a scientific paper), and have to standardize font-size etc. A workaround is to put all text into a folder, make folder invisible, export from master to .tif with 2008 pixel width (no resampling problems there), then copy - paste the text layers in again and adjust in the flat image file all the text layers. Rather convoluted, and straight downsampling of layered .afphoto document should work, after all.
  2. When using image resize with downsampling in multilayer document, some layers get completely degraded. See attached images: First one Fig9 6747 is 6747 pixels wide. I downsample it to 2008 pixels in second image Fig9 2008, and the bottom center elements turns into mush, the bottom left image also gets seriously soft. If I copy paste from 6K master file and re-size in the 2008 file, the images look fine again. So it is NOT a problem of pixel numbers in the downsampled image, but the downsampling algorithm somehow goes crazy. The problem could be that the top two photographs are very hires dSLR images, while the bottom ones are bad jpeg originals that were scaled up in their layers. It may be that when downsampling the master file, the bad file gets further downsampled as well, instead of retaining maximum information content. Some programming to the effect of retaining maximum information content in up-scaled layers should be doable. I did try the different resampling algorithms (bilinear to Laczos3) and all have the same effect.
  3. +1, need to see invisibles, like spaces in text, tabs etc. Definitively needed!
  4. Please LINK images, and do not embed the images. I made a one-page 40x44" poster, with a few images, and it clocks in at 2.72 GB (gigabytes) !!! A similar document in QuarkXPress is 10.4 MB (megabytes). The Publisher document is 200 times bigger! Creating larger books with lots of large high quality images will be impossible. My last book had over 1200 pages, with over 1000 figures.
  5. Thanks. It is not the window size, but the size of the individual characters that are difficult to discern.
  6. Already at the largest setting. Still very small and difficult to see what is what (see screenshot in OP).
  7. hmm, not sure what you try to show here. I know Publisher supports stylistic alternates. But does not change the fact that with the illustrated script font (Dreamscript), it is very hard to see what is what.
  8. The Glyph Browser even at its largest setting is too small for Dreamscript (see attached screen shot). . It is very difficult to see the stylistic alternates. Try to distinguish f and l, or m and n. Quark has a nice option that shows just the stylistic alternates of the selected character and a slider function for size in the glyph browser.
  9. Just uploaded a few images. Macro is: change color space to greyscale, duplicate layer, go to bottom layer, add layer, fill the added (middle) layer with black, and also has a line tool color and width preset included. So nothing complicated, really. I used that same macro in 1.6 and worked like a charm, so 1.7 is the problem. Is there a way to download 1.6? This macro crashing is a serious problem for me.
  10. Another vote for Mellel. I particularly like the cross-referencing feature, and the exquisite search-replace function. The best I have seen in any application (ID, QXP, MSW).
  11. I try to get the alternate row shading in table. I cannot figure out how Edit Table Formats works. I looked at But that does not help. Make a 2x2 table. and go to Edit Table Formats. There is a 3x3 Table with dark gray triangles on the sides that can be moved up and down. No idea what that is supposed to be. Try to select a row in the 3x3, assign a color to that row, but it will color the entire 2x2 sample table in that color, not just one row. Tried all sorts of permutations on selection cells columns moving triangles, but whatever I do, the entire 2x2 table is colored in the same background. Also looked at Help, and there is nothing specific in there either. Having a video tutorial on the Edit Table Format interface would be great.
  12. I have a bunch of brush presets. With Eraser, when I use a particular eraser brush, then want to change to a different preset in brush palettes by clicking it, then go back to image to use that new brush, the old one is still active. So I have to select some brush other brush, then select the one I want (second step), and then the new brush is active. This is consistent, with restart of application and restart of computer.

  13. Using AP 1.70 on MacPro 2013. Constant crashes after simple batch process of 3-20 images (7 MP tif, duplicate layer, add layer, fill, move layer, save). With parallel on and off. Restarting computer does not help either. Please fix. Never had this problem with AP before. Have used batch processing extensively. This is new. also tried beta version, but crashes after 0 images successfully processed in parallel, without parallel crashes after 1 image.
