  1. This happens to me very often and it's incredibly frustrating because I have to quit the app. I know the window is hidden but I cannot find where. Any ideas? I'm on a Mac as well.
  2. Thanks @Sean P Your suggestion worked! I drew out a new artboard and created the footer group on the new board. Created a symbol from that group and I'm successfully able to drag that symbol onto the other artboards and they sync perfectly. I still can't figure out where the scaling comes from but this solution is very helpful!
  3. I've attached the original PDF file that was created and exported from ArcGIS. The symbol in question I created from scratch within Designer. Basically I recreated the footer and frame you'll see in the PDF which is comprised of several text shape layers. I then grouped all those elements and created a symbol from that group. The weird text scaling comes about when I drag the symbol to the second artboard. Also, thank you. Demo_Scaling.pdf
  4. @carl123 That's a good thing to know! In my case though, these artboards were all created via a PDF import without any manual resizing ... which still may be causing the quirkiness. I should also mention there are constraints applied to the 2 text boxes in question.
  5. I'm not sure is this is a bug or user error but I run into whenever I try to use Symbols. I create symbol from the footer of artboard 1 to duplicate and sync on footers of other artboards. I can create the symbol fine but when I drag the newly created symbol from the Symbols Studio panel to artboard 2, the text becomes a much smaller font size. If I try to correct the font size in the artboard 2 footer symbol, the font size in the artboard 1 footer symbol is increased. I've attached a screenshot as well as a Designer file.

  6. Both solutions work on my end. I thought I tried the Favor Editable Text route previously but without resolve. It seems to be working now. Thanks Sean and Walt for saving me these extra steps on a very repetitive task!
  7. Sure thing. This is not the exact same graphics as my original post but same export/import process and same text issue in the footer. Map 1.pdf
  8. I'm not sure if I'm importing incorrectly or if this is a bug. When opening layered PDFs created in GIS software, text boxes contain odd spaces that are not corrected with any text alignment setting. The red circles in the attached images illustrate the spaces in center and left aligned setting. Note the relation of the text to the text box boundary.
  9. I'm not sure this is a bug or if the feature was altered but I do not see the option to include bleed when exporting PDF for print. I have a custom preset based on the PDF for print preset and it caused a delay for my clients. Am I missing something or is this a bug. I just noticed it on my Windows version but I also had the problem on the Mac version.
  10. Thanks Sean, I can give you the assets category file that I used for back up. I've since resized all the assets but the attached still has the very large assets. For instance, all the test throughout these assets should be at size 10 but when added to a document, the text becomes size 20. The good news though is the flakiness when dragging assets seems to be fixed with the recent update. Janus Assets.afassets
  11. The 1.7 update successfully imported my assets from the previous version but after dragged them or double-clicking them from the assets panels, they are almost double in size. That being said, dragging and asset out of the panel is a bit flaky. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.
  12. When using the node tool to edit the direction of a single node handle using the alt, only the right alt key works but not the left. Other than that, the left alt key does all other modifier operations (ie. drag a copy) correctly. Is that default in the Windows version, or is that an OS level issue?
  13. Thanks. I just used that idea on a similar file sand that worked pretty well. I guess I didn't consider the crop tool.
  14. When exporting from the Export Persona, the Windows Explorer folder chooser does not display its content. Is that a setting?
  15. Thanks Chris B. I've uploaded a file that has given me the lag/slow-down issue in the past.
