  1. I downloaded the Linux font pack from Source Forge. I did not find a Linux Biolinum Caps font The Linux Libertine Initials font contains small capitals, but no lowercase. I got the desired result by applying small capitals to Linux Biolinum and using Linux Libertine lowercase with Linux Libertine Initials. I use PagePlus X9, but Publisher would do the same.
  2. All installed fonts are available to Affinity Publisher. There is no need for it to do anything to make them available. What you need to do is download and install them. I presume that MacOS is no different to Windows regarding this.
  3. I see. I was not aware that the program was called Office Publisher. I thought it was called Microsoft Publisher.
  4. What is an Open Office publisher file? Do you mean an OpenOffice *.odt document or a MS Publisher file?
  5. Is this font really so important to your work that you cannot find a better one? Find and Replace might be used to select the punctuation and apply a character style, a different point size, or a different font, but this kludge will surely cause problems.
  6. Just set another ordinary left aligned tab stop Type Name, Tab, Tab, Type Next name, Tab, Tab Type Anschrift, Tab, Tab Type Anschrift, Tab, Tab Tab, Tab, Tab, Tab for the third line with just empty lines.
  7. The text on the startup screen “Show this panel on startup,” is now fine. The About Affinity Publisher splash screen text is unchanged.
  8. Why not simply point out that Affinity Designer uses per mille instead of percent? That clarifies without being a sarcastic PITA.
  9. I don't understand what your problem is with always fault-finding. In PagePlus 1% condensed = -8% of tightening in Affinity Designer. Maybe that would be -10% if the frames were exactly the same width. I did not measure it, I just resized it to get the same line breaks.
  10. Affinity Designer seems to use a different measuring system. I am not sure I am comparing like with like, but I can get the desired result with -8.0% of tightening.
  11. Agreed. The current steps are far too large. In PagePlus X9, the default stop is 1% for Alt+Left, and 0.1% for Ctrl+Alt+Left. I frequently use the latter for fine control applying it to the entire paragraph to prevent widows and orphans. Any negative kern value exceeding -3% is too tight, and should be avoided as far as possible. Often, I can reduce a paragraph by one line with just 0.1-0.5% of negative kerning. Default Spacing 1% Condensed 3% Condensed (Too tight)
  12. I see the double-headed arrow cursor as soon as I click on the ruler. If I hold down Alt then click the horizontal ruler, a vertical guide is created at once.
  13. No problem here, also on the latest Windows. If Guides are disable on the View menu, dragging a new guide automatically re-enables them, which makes sense. Do you see the double-headed arrow cursor? Are you using Windows scaling?
