    Hi @Dankzy and welcome! Just a possibility - click the More button in the Contextual Toolbar and make sure that Accumulation is set to 100%:

    Not easy if you want to edit the text afterwards, but if it's a short phrase you could:
    Create each letter of the phrase as a separate layer of artistic text and adjust alignment and spacing as required'

     
    Place the images in the document and then clip them to the individual letters:

    IMO this makes it slightly easier to adjust the images to fit the letterforms, while retaining the ability to edit the individual letters of the text.

    Another way, if you're using Publisher, you could convert the word to curves, convert each letter to a picture frame, and then insert a picture into each one.

    As a possible alternative, you can use a radial fill with the opacity at the centre set to zero - it gives you a bit more control over the lighting effect for a bit of that 3-D bubbly appearance:

    Hi @h_d,
    Thanks for the files

    I suspect it will be related to formatting on the table that we don't support in Publisher, but i could be wrong.

    Hi @stokerg
    I've attached the .xlsx file I could place and the .afpub document I placed it into, but I should point out that I used Apple Numbers to do the unmerging and then exported as .xlsx, as I don't have Excel itself. I don't think it should make any difference.
    Cells A2 and B2 (second row, first two cells) need to be unmerged as well as all the cells in the first row.
    Cheers,

    It turns out that you don't need the Hunspell files at all on your Mac!
    On your Mac, go to System Preferences > Keyboard > Text > and set Spelling to "Auto by Language". Then the spelling check just works fine in Affinity!
    For me the setting was of course "Nederlands" (Dutch), that's why it didn't work.
    Strange really ..?

    Alternatively, run Geometry - Smooth Curves click the Node tool and then click Smooth Curve in the context menu bar on both the 'flower' and the 'cloud', then the subtraction operation will work correctly. Presumably this also rectifies the fill issues identified by @anon2

    Hi @Serif,
    abbreviated versions of panel names should be included in the help. If the user does not know the meaning of the confusion "X" with "trans" (for example Xmit as transmit), then the abbreviation Xfm will not tell him anything.

    h_d got a reaction from cbordey in Extra space at beginning of paragraph   
    If you're having to press backspace to close up the gaps, the chances are that there are extra return characters between the paragraphs. To check this, pull down the Text menu and choose Show Special Characters:

    This will display paragraph breaks as a sort of reversed P::

    One at the end of each paragraph, one in between.
    To remove them quickly, do a Find and Replace (Cmd-F on Mac, probably Ctrl-F on PC).
    In the Find box, click the magnifying glass and choose Special Characters - Paragraph Break:
    .
    Do this once again in the Find box, and just once in the Replace box, then double-click in the Find box to show results::

    Then click Replace All:

    This has removed my double paragraph breaks, but I still have space between the paragraphs because my text styles are set up that way. If you need to remove more space, or the above doesn't work, post back.

    Or if you are sold on a Boolean subtract, select all the stars, choose Layer-Geometry-Merge Curves (to create a single curve comprising all the stars), then select the blue rectangle as well and then try subtracting:

    Unless you have a particular reason to use Boolean subtraction, an alternative might be to group the stars and clip them to the rectangle:

    h_d reacted to weegiegrum in Publsiher index formatting   
    Re the numbering thing... I think I've figured this out. It appears to be because the working index window is showing  the global document page numbers and not taking into account any section numbering. I have 16 pages of introductory stuff using Roman numerals as per standard book formatting, with the 'proper' numbering starting at 1 on the 17th page.
    The numbers in the populated index do accurately reflect the page numbers as in the text.

    Thanks H, having slept on it, I realised that was the problem. When I populated the index pages, I hadn't specified index entry text, so the font size was huge and I changed it to body text - which of course mucked up the formatting. Having re-done the index after editing the 'index' text styles, the entries indent properly.
     
    Many thanks for the help.

    Make sure you have a transparent background:

    h_d got a reaction from BofG in Mix colors   
    Red, blue and yellow, as in @Renaki_022's example, are primary colours in terms of pigments and painting on paper, but not on computer screens.
    On computer and TV screens, based on the light receptors in the human eye,  the primary colours (aka additive primaries) are red, blue and green, as in @GarryP's example.
    (The subtractive primaries cyan, magenta and yellow are used for colour printing - along with black.)
    Colour theory is a huge subject, but basically mixing colours on a computer screen doesn't work in the same way as it does on paper, and the only way to achieve the 'on paper' colour wheel in the OP's request is most likely going to be to create a complex shape with a separate fill for each segment. (Try mixing yellow and blue on screen to achieve green, for example, using any blend mode.)
