  1. Thanks, Sean. I love this feature. It's something I use a lot in PagePlus for a newsletter that I do. Glad to see it being added to my favorite graphic program!
  2. Have attached a sample .afdesign file. I do have the latest of the two programs, I just never think to update the forum info. heart.afdesign
  3. I am using the lastest beta - 1.7.0.258 - Can't say if it was this way in the prior beta because I didn't try it. The other person that has this same problem is also using the latest version.
  4. I think this may be a bug. I created a heart using a shape. Made a smaller one and centered the two together. Subtracted the smaller heart to make a "hole". I then converted it to a text frame and added some text. Looked great on the screen. Selected all and exported. Both the top and bottom of the heart are cut off. Another person in my forum had the same results. I'm attaching my results. Maybe I'm doing something wrong?
  5. I kind of have to disagree with the part about it being more difficult for older ones to learn such things. Many of us older ones were the pioneers for home computers back in the day. The only reason the older ones might have a problem is because they were not exposed to technology. I am 80 years old and find myself teaching those in the younger generations how to do things. It's not so much a matter of age, it's what you have been exposed to.
  6. Thanks!!! Didn't realize there were two areas. Got it fixed.
  7. Teejay, I thought the same thing as you - I couldn't find my styles. They are there but listed as objectstyles.propcol. Also, someone mentioned that I don't have any info in a sig file. I went to my profile but not sure where to put that info. Nothing specifically says "Sig"..
  8. I don't have that much stuff at the moment but I suspect it would take quite a lot to slow it down. The reason I asked was, in another program that I used, I had 15 years of graphics I made stored in the "Assets" area. It did not slow the system down because what you saw when looking at a given asset was a watered down thumbnail with a link to the asset itself. It loaded the actual asset only when you clicked on the visual in the Assets panel. I was wondering if maybe AD handled the files in a similar manner. Thanks again for the help on the files location. I actually knew that but somehow I didn't see them when I looked. Maybe new glasses would help.
  9. Okay, I found them - thanks!! That answers the first part of my question. The second part is about the size of the various files. If I have a LOT of assets, styles, brushes, etc. Will that cause the program to slow down? Is there a limit?
  10. This is a two-fold question. First, where do Designer and Photo hide your files like your styles, brushes, color palettes, Assets on a PC? I've looked in Program Files, Program Files (86) and in the apps areas, Local, Roaming, etc. and I can't find them anywhere. And secondly, if you have a gazillion styles or brushes, etc, installed, does that slow the program down? Thank you in advance.
  11. Thanks Meb.... will do that!! You can remove this thread.
  12. I'm sure I'm posting this in the wrong place but maybe someone can help. When upgrading to the latest version of Win 10, it totally trashed my computer and I had to re-start over from a fresh install. In doing so, I lost just about everything. I use PagePlusXp on a daily basis and I need to get another copy. I have my invoice number, order number, account number, etc. I went ot the Serif site and cannot find anywhere to download it again. I thought I had saved the file but when I opened the folder where it was supposed to be, all I had was the extra content. Can someone please tell me where I can download it again? Would be much obliged.
  13. Please put the spiral shape in the Shapes panel. Each time I want to use it, I have to go to Draw Plus to get the shape the way I want it, then save it and open it in AD. Would be so nice if we could have that little feature.

    Thank you!!!! That's exactly where I wanted to go. I hope someone there can help.
  15. I am posting this here because I couldn't find anywhere else to post. Where can I get help with PagePlus? I want to create a simply phone directory, one line per name and phone number that I can print. I have set up a 5/1/2x11 page and added a table to it with 30 lines. I created 8 pages with the table by selecting the Next table option at the bottom of the cell. They are numbered sequentially throughout the pages. If I type (or paste) data into the first table, it will auto flow over to the next page which is what I want it to do. The problem comes when I need to insert a name that was omitted. It does not flow to the next table. Same if I remove some names because they are no longer valid. The data does not flow up to fill the empty cells. My question is, what am I doing wrong? Is there something I need to set or lock to keep this from happening? Thanks for any help or suggestions. If this is not possible does anyone have a suggestion for other software that will do this. Each line contains name, address, and phone. Very simple.
