  1. I've done it. Drag the app from the applications folder into the bin. Restart. Go to app store: purchases. Should be able to download it again from here. Looks like the restart is essential.
  2. Not tried the fix yet. The app store does recognise that there are updates to Photo and Designer and has prompted me to update them (yet didn't for Publisher...) but then I get the 'unable to process at this time' message when I try. Not had trouble before. I might have opted to skip the previous update and wonder if this has done something.
  3. Update: The prompt to update Publisher appeared on starting the software and that appears to be working. Designer and Photo have not shown an update prompt.
  4. Same problem. Not getting any update message on the apps themselves. Getting same 'unable to process' message from the app store. Have successfully downloaded another product from the app store. Am running 10.11.6 and 1.8.4 Designer and Photo.
  5. I can't recreate what triggers this but at some point when I'm working I will click on the font menu dropdown, the menu drops down as expected but when I move the cursor the menu closes. If I am quick enough I can select a font if it's on screen at the time. Restarting Designer usually sorts this for a while. Can't be sure but I think this is only after 1.8.3. It's not something that happened until recently anyway. Designer 1.8.3 OSX 10.11.6
  6. - open new file - open another new file - create a text box in the first window - start typing - focus moves to second window. Typing is no longer possible in the text box until it's reselected - type another character, focus moves back to second window For more fun with this, create a text box in the second window. - start typing in first window text box - focus moves to second window text box and typing continues in this box - type in the second window text box - this works but very slowly Also: - create new file - create new view of this window - create a text box in the first window - type in the text box - this sort of works but the focus switches to the text box in the second window I can't say for certain whether this has just appeared with 1.8.3. --- Designer 1.8.3 OS 10.11.6
  7. dominik – thanks, that's the sort of thing I was after. InDesign has (had?) the Master Text Frame checkbox which would set up empty linked text boxes on a new doc.
  8. I agree with the original post. To me master objects should be editable on the page. The master is there to maintain position and box content style. Having the content of the master pages fixed limits their use. The ability to edit the master page objects on the content page which then changes the master page is confusing. I suppose you could just lock it. Just as I suppose you could set up your page and duplicate as Wim suggests. But these seem like workarounds because the master page doesn't do what you'd expect it to. Related (though perhaps could do with a new post) – what about setting up master pages with linked text boxes? What if you want to create a booklet of 100 pages where each page contains an identical text box linked to the next page? As far as I can see this would involve setting up a page, creating 99 duplicates and then linking each text box manually. No one's going to do that.
