  1. It pops up. It is a directory for its presented topics. It is a website with dynamically changing content and URLs to other websites. AND it is a modal window. There is no either or in that case. Even Save and Export are modal windows, too. As many others are in the UI, too. Hopefully you will not demand as "most logically" to move them all into the Windows menu.
  2. Aha. So what do you care, waste your time and don't play with WebP successfully somewhere else? With such thoughts this discussion can't result in the implementation of WebP. I care because I am missing an argument which might convince the Affinity developers. Just saying "we use it" or "it is modern" or even everybody is using it is very vague and not clear about the real usage and spread of this format.
  3. The number counts. Even flash/swf might still be used by web developers.
  4. Compared to all "modern" possible formats it is rather any than THE format.
  5. You might convince people rather by linking to a statistic of the spread/use of your desired WebP – just mentioning that you/your company does use it in any or many or all of your work is hardly a relevant aspect for developers.
  6. Using any new file format does not mean to "have a clue" – and vice versa. It even might mean to have a clue by NOT jumping into every available technology fashion. Is All Media Lab besides WebP (or even instead?) using HEIF/HEIC or FLIF or BPG or PIK etc.? They all might become – but don't have to – a standard because of advantages towards WebP.
  7. Oh, I would not start to recommend the use of a table as a workaround for the bugs of Pinning. Tables still are buggy, too. Can you confirm the weird move + scale occurrence when using the unpin + pin button? (It might become more obvious if you use it several times).
  8. Actually it is a website, presented by the Affinity Browser.app, which was the first working Studio Link app.
  9. This screenshot does not allow at all to inspect the situation. It does not show any object selected and no panel setting, as for instance text style or frame properties. It just shows text in different sizes. To inspect what's going on it will be necessary to check various settings, either with an .afpub or with a screencast which demonstrates the process when you create such a text frame up to running into the issue.
  10. As Joachim mentioned there is only 1 document state saved at a time. It appears we can set its interval in the app prefs > general: On mac these data appear to be stored in a complex set of files at ~/Library/Application Support/Affinity Publisher/temp ~/Library/Application Support/Affinity Publisher/autosave In case you are on mac and using Time Machine you can find hourly states of these folders in your Mobile Backups folder on your system volume.
  11. Most logically the name for this item does not matter at all. It even could be called a pop up menu. (p.s.: menu Windows lists only opened windows; and you don't open the Save or Export option windows via menu Windows, too). A more than your most logically aspect is not its name but its content + behavior: Help-Links + on Application Launch.
  12. A line object does not become invisible when it gets pinned inline, it just does not move to a text position by itself – like a shape does for instance. If you move the text frame you will see the pinned line. In case the line was below the frame before pinning you also can scale the frame height to make it visible. However, even if I can workaround this by positioning the line on the text before pinning the major issue is that its position can't be set with the options in the Pinning panel. That at least appears to be a bug. And its moving + scaling when unpinned is another bug, which affects not only line objects but shapes. too.
  13. Yes, the Application Preferences were the place where I have been searching and not finding it, too. Though it does contain links to various types of Help (indeed !) I would not expect to set its visibility in the Help menu because it affects the application launch process.
  14. Can you please upload an .afpub which contains such a weird font size change within a text frame? (at best in a common font face to make us see the same as you.)
  15. To me both the Save & the Export options window are on the same level & docked at the title bar of the main document window. The Save and the Export windows are rather drop down menus of the document window than windows or panels. Unfortunately the command "Toggle UI" is grayed out when the Export or the Save options are opened. This document window is always is behind all other UI elements to enable the user to move panels around and even on top of the document in case of few space on screen. If the panels would be on a level behind the document, then they would be covered and not visible to work with them at all. This way in Separate mode and with using two monitors it even may happen that you do not see the document window at all if it is covered by the panels filling one screen. Unfortunately the document window opens always on the screen which has the menu bar – instead of remind its free position with larger space on the other monitor.
  16. @Michael, we don't see the line in your text frame because it is still at its position outside, below the frame. There is no need – and it does not work well – to copy/paste an object to use it as inline object. Instead move the object to its wanted position on your text frame and press the button for "inline..." in either the Toolbar or in the Pinning Panel. Unfortunately it seems to be buggy: – when pinning a line object I can not change its position and size after pinning. – when I pin a shape or line object and unpin it again then it becomes moved and upscaled. I can repeat this step again and again and see the pinned/unpinned object drifting away and getting bigger. pinning issues-desktop.m4v
  17. As MikeW assumed your font seems to be a file created by "Converter: Windows Type 1 Installer V1.0d. Font: V1.0" as the mac finder info says. You can find the same info here: https://fontsup.com/de/font/myriad-roman.html As far I know Myriad was not only used for 15 years as Apple's corporate (not: OS) font but also included in some Adobe CS installers. This both makes it quite unlikely that it is free. So, how about to "tweak" this "It was a free downloaded font" file by replacing it with a Myriad Pro? myriad roman vs myriad pro - cursor italic.mov
  18. @v_kyr, the Finder is no DAM in the meaning of DAM @Peter, unfortunately this still is an often missing feature: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/search/&q=DAM&type=forums_topic&nodes=65,5&search_and_or=or&search_in=titles&sortby=relevancy It appears that Affinity can't work with each DAM even for JPG files. For instance to me an image dragged from a DAM into AfPublisher creates a text frame with meta data incl. all keywords – instead of the image itself.
  19. Sogar in 2018 bzw. 2019 scheint das Mac/Win Pfad-Problem in ID nicht für jeden Anwender gelöst zu sein: https://indesign.uservoice.com/forums/601021-adobe-indesign-feature-requests/suggestions/35230789-links-on-shares-broken-mac-windows https://forums.adobe.com/thread/2637291 Während die Adobe-Mitarbeiterin empfiehlt, die .indd zusammen mit den Links in einen gemeinsamen Ordner zu packen (!), vermutet Bob Levine (ehemals Adobe, routinierter ID forums Autor) eher eine Problemlösung durch Ordner-Umbenennungen im Netzwerk.
  20. Joachim, I guess Michael did not realize that yours and GarryP's suggestion use the same method: Pinned objects. Whereas GarryP used the crop tool only to size the line and you used the text wrap which in my opinion is not necessary for pinned objects if you don't use the "float" but the "inline" button instead.
  21. Nicht "von", sondern "in", denn es ist keines, das von Affinity verursacht wird. Offenbar bist du mit dem Problem bereits aus früheren ID Versionen vertraut. Nach meiner Erfahrung hat das Problem in ID mehr als ein Jahrzehnt und zig Programmversionen bestanden und war auch mit der Erfindung von InCopy und ID Server für das "normale" ID nicht einfach gelöst. Da AfPublisher momentan erst in seiner zweiten Programmversion existiert und noch diverse Bugs bestehen, die das Arbeiten für manche Benutzer komplett unmöglich machen (Stichwort "Crash") ist vermutlich mit einer Lösung dieses speziellen Pfad-Problems eher nicht "möglichst bald" zu rechnen und macht in einem gemischten Netzwerk womöglich noch eine ganze Weile "unvernünftiges" Arbeiten erforderlich. Daher kam meine Frage, wie ihr das Pfad-Problem im internen Netzwerk bisher in anderen Programmen umschifft. Soweit ich mich erinnere haben unsere Netzwerkadmins damals (vor ca. 10 Jahren) diverse Varianten der Einbindung (ink. div. Protokolle) versucht, bevor wir fehlerfrei arbeiten konnten.
  22. I' guess you haven't tried CMYK as document color space because you don't need CMY at all in your PDF and therefore wanted to limit the color space for the complete document from the beginning? Note that you can export from a CMYK document with CMYK objects as K only by using on export a true CMYK grayscale profile only, as f.i. in my screenshot above below "D50", or (haven't tried), the "Black & White" profile on top of the pulldown list.
  23. Another approach does not use pinned objects but text style options only. For instance horizontal font width: With this way it is useful to start with a few underscore characters since a higher value for width influences its space characters before and after. (probably a bug) Another method uses 1 tab for each line and its feature of leading characters which auto-generates dots or line to fill the distance: underline 5 tabs.mov
  24. In my example above, I set the frame sizes with the outer handle before inserting text. This means you may have already created this problem "already set", but this became apparent later. In case you only entered new text in a frame scaled with outer handles that would not work. Instead you need to create new frames. Unfortunately there is no way to reset an object which got scaled with the outer handle to its initial size; there also is no UI to see whether an object got scaled that way at all. To determine whats going on in your document or app it might be informative to see a screencast of you creating a text frame, pasting text and getting confusing font size.
  25. Dass Dateipfade in Mac / Windows unterschiedlich benannt werden ist keine Eigenart von Affinity sondern liegt in der Natur der beiden Betriebssysteme bzw. der Art ihrer Einbindung ins interne Netzwerk, z.b. Groß-/Kleinschreibung, Laufwerks-Buchstaben. Das gemeinsam genutzte NAS kann mit einem weiteren Betriebssystem wiederum eigene Pfad-Konventionen führen. Wie wird das Problem bei Euch bisher gelöst, also außerhalb von Affinity, z.B. in Emails zwischen Mac und Windows für Links im internen Netzwerk?
