  1. Oh well; started to use the cut/paste approach. Guess tomorrow I'm at the same point as I started this evening. There's a bit of re-adding pictures, applying layer effects and rearranging involved.
  2. Hi walt.farrel, The help only discusses linking and unlinking. All related options maintain text flow either within or along frames. Nothing described gets into the actual text being separated. Imagine you intend to write a lenghty text: each chapter as single text but flowing through multiple frames/pages. Then you discover accidentally two chapters are one flowing text flowing through multiple frames. How to fix this in order to get individual unlinked text for each chapter?
  3. Hi, Publisher indeed. Thanks for the replies: Ross: yes but still lets the text flow as a single text. I wanted to split the text in two separate texts. Old Bruce: a column or frame break just seemingly interrupts the text while the actual text is still flowing among frames. A column or frame brake can easily be undone by deleting 'characters'. h_d: that would be a possible workaround I used before but in this case it's a bit tricky: long text in a 2-column layout including images. If text overflows a frame it easily is set to flow to a next frame. I suspected two obvious kind of opposite cases would also be covered in Publisher: either text remains but frames are not linked anymore (resulting in first frame containing overflowing text OR frames remain but text is split (text flow undone; no visual changes). UPDATE: cut selection and pasting it again results in only text being pasted. Inlined images need to be added manually again.
  4. Hi, Is there any way to break the text flow through frames? If I use the red 'eye' symbol the text in folowing frames is deleten and added to the initial frame (causing it to overflow). I would like to keep frame contents: the actual text should be split in two independent frames.
  5. Oh, then you already can do more than the average text editor user :-) Last week my boss showed proudly a flyer he made in Word: body text with a filled rectangle along the side with some larger artistic text. He said it took him a while to get that filled rectangle :-P But ok, usually his wife is the Word user; he just sticks to copying invoices with changing some names and numbers. He talks highly of Windows Paint though ... that says enough I suppose. I never got him to trying other software.
  6. Yeah, we're basically all new to Publisher; there's soooooo much in it that it takes a while knowing 25% of it :-)
  7. Hi MikeW, I suppose with 'No' you mean exact behavior like PagePlus scheme colors? I mean a whole pallette of colors replacing an other. Using global colors seems to come darn close to it. Not sure yet if set global colors can be reused in other documents, though. Anyway, for my current issue the global colors feature does do the trick: all text having color 1 can be changed instantly just by modifying color 1 itself.
  8. Yes! Thanks! It took a bit figuring out and testing but that's exactly what I was looking for: changing the global color indeed changes the color of all text set to that global color. I noticed the color was added to pallette 'Document'; haven't checked it out yet but I'm wondering if I can use the global color in other documents, too. Initially started to check out the 'Find and Replace' tool: I wouldn't be surprised if Affinity would offer exotic 'find arguments' and indeed: a whole list of options including color. However, changing color worked once while at next attempts the 'Found results' panel stayed empty. Oh well, global colors works like a charm :-P
  9. Hi, Is it possible in Publisher apply a scheme color to text? I mean changing a scheme color all text in a document having that particular scheme color will get the new color at once. Some related topics from a year ago seem to suggest Publisher doesn't feature but Publisher has been updated since then and the finalisation of the 'trinity' concept did come with addition of quite a few features :-P
  10. Ouch! Pro is talking to amateur here ... frankly I never got to using text styles yet while I know I should. Using text styles can save a lot of manual editing not to mention the freedom it offers for playing with the overall looks afterwards. So far also did table of contents still manually while it could be generated automatically when using styles :-)
  11. Hi Old Bruce, Yes but I'm kind of in a gray area here: the 'titles' are more like list items I instantly get discussed. The whole thing looks non-consistent when too many short blocks of text and single line 'titles' are separated by single or double blank lines. It is a two-column layout which seems less 'blank lines tolerant' than single column layouts. Single and double blank lines can be used for separating minor and major text brakes but that's about it: when adding blank lines in less minor breaks the overall look is more fragmented than consistent. Only option left is indenting and/or using a bold font for less minor text breaks.
  12. Hi Wosven, Your tip indeed does the trick; it actually works on multiple lines as well! Justification is only applied to everything after the last line ending with a tab. Big thanks!
  13. Hi, When justifying left in Publisher the text is spread over the full column width with exception of the last sentence. Can the first sentence, or paragraph title, somehow be protected from being left justified? In the layout the first sentence is a title (in bold font) of the text following without a blank line but it is too short for the justification not looking disturbing: • Title looks odd Bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla blas bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla.
  14. Hi Jon P, No, nothing out of the ordinary: putting the cursor in the text frame, ctrl A and ctrl C. When I wanted to copy an English text it didn't happen but then I noticed I used 'o' indicator in the English text while in the Dutch text I used 'o'-indicator. When I changed 'o' to 'o'- (with hyphen) it also happened with copying and pasting the English text. When removing the hyphens in the Dutch text copy and pasting went fine. Anyway, I noticed it even happens in Publisher itself: when typing text, copy it and paste it in a new text frame; see attached. Perhaps it has to do with the OS language (Win10 Home Dutch) or keyboard layout (US). For typing the apostrophe I used the [' "] key thus basically a dead key; in order to get the apostrophe I type a space after having hit the [' "] key. APub_CopyPaste-issue.afpub
  15. ...somehow it got to the bug forum (Affinity Publisher Windows) as well; perhaps someone copied it to there? Or the word 'bug' in the title does it automatically?
