  1. Notice page numbers 106 and 144 is showing with no entry. They should not even be there because my sections are correct as far as I know.
  2. Hi again Walt, I just made a minor adjustment to the headings of one or two of my chapters, but still the two gaps with page numbers are present in the TOC. Here is a screen shot of my whole UI
  3. Hi there Walt, Thanks very much for your reply. I thought to take a screen shot of the problem that I am having. Maybe you can make something out of this.
  4. I had exactly the same issues running Mojave which affected ADesigner but not Photo. I also noticed that not only was the Affinity apps affected, but some others from other developers too. I used the method above to fix the issue. I also cannot upgrade to Big Sur because I have some apps that are still 32 bit and won't work. Apple need to pull finger to sort this Mojave and App Store situation out.
  5. Hi there, I think I've found a bug in Affinity Publisher's Table of Contents process. After compiling sections with only Heading 1 entries in a book that I am laying out, when running the Table of Contents it adds a couple of blank spaces in between entries. I'm not sure why this is happening, but I found this out today in Version 1.9.1.
  6. Hi there, The other day when this problem happened, I was creating a video tutorial on how to lay out a book in Publisher. I was using Filler Text and had created all the text styles needed. Today I tried the same thing again to recreate the problem and now it just doesn't do it again, so I just don't know what happened to have done what I reported. I am not using the new Beta version of Publisher, but the latest Publisher update, 1.8.6 If the problem happens again, I will certainly try and record my screen again. Thanks so much for your reply though. Regards, Rory Mole
  7. Hi there, I've encountered a problem with the latest version of Publisher. When creating sections and telling section manager to start a section on a certain page that's ok, but when I go to start the next section, section manager changes the page number of the previous section automatically and assigns it's own page to start the next section on even after I correct the page numbering.
  8. Hi there, I am using the latest updated Mac version of Affinity Publisher which I purchased through the affinity store because I was part of the beta testing community. I am compiling a book mostly of text compiled as a multipage spread. I first place a word document and flow the text across multiple pages. After the text has been placed, there are some corrections to be made and while inserting inverted commas at the end of a sentence, the cursor jumps to a completely different page. That's it. Regards, Rory Mole
  9. Hi there to you all, Firstly, I am sorry if this topic has been covered in these forums. I did a search to find the answer to my question before posting. I am laying out a long book for a client. Her manuscript has been written in MS Word and saved as a .docs file. The document contains about 35000 words. I am wanting to place the text into Affinity Publisher without having to create 250 pages first and dragging out text boxes. When I place the document in the first Publisher page within APublisher, how would I be able to have the text "flow" onto other pages below without having to manually drag out text frames? Is there a quick way of doing this? Any help with this would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks...
  10. Thanks very much Garrettm30 for clearing up this little bit of confusion.
  11. Hi there Petar, I'm not sure what is happening here about my comment, but I hope you understand the need to import Microsoft Word files into Publisher which have footnotes applied to them by authors. Publisher can "Place" Microsoft Word files into a Publisher document, but with limitations. One of the big limitations is that Publisher does not support footnotes and endnotes at the moment, therefore any footnotes or endnotes that an MS Word document has in it will not be applied to the Publisher document when they are "Placed". This feature needs to be added to Publisher. Try telling millions of writers that they should not be using MS Word for their manuscripts because it's a "donkey" program. Lots of people us MS Word still. The development team at Affinity, put the ability into Publisher to be able to "Place" MS Word document content into a Publisher document. I'm sure they are working on adding lots more capability to the "Place" function in Publisher to have many more features options available. Hope this gives a bit more clarity to my thoughts.
  12. The reason for the importing of footnotes and endnotes from Microsoft word documents is this: I layout academic books for clients who put their own footnotes into Microsoft word which is their writing software of choice for their manuscript. When I layout their book in a layout program such as Affinity Publisher, I want to have the ability to "place" or "import" their manuscripts which contain lots of footnotes and/or endnotes. I do not want to have to manually add 500+ footnotes into their sentences of text on pages in Affinity Publisher. Adobe InDesign has this ability and I am wanting to completely move away from Adobe. This is not going backwards from a horse to a donkey as you have questioned, it is just how things are in the book publishing industry.
  13. I think someone has asked for the following concerning footnotes and endnotes. The ability to import footnotes and endnotes in Microsoft Word files. The ability to format footnotes in the footer section of the document. What I mean is fully format the text, spacing, etc. It would be so good if the Affinity Development Team makes this available soon.
  14. What I would like to see in AP is the ability to add text frames automatically when a page is created. There should be an ability to apply this or to not apply this. It would save a lot of hassle when copy and pasting text.
  15. Hi there to you all, Thanks so much for your efforts to bring us Affinity Publisher. It's very much appreciated. For the purpose of automation, I am setting up a document as a spread with a number of pages for a book. I have successfully set up Master Page A with running headers at the top on both sides and page numbers in the "footer" section in the centre of both facing pages. I want the first page of every chapter to start on the right hand side which is what AP is able to do very well. I have created a new single Master Page and called it B. I am trying to have a decorative glyph in the centre of the page just above halfway down the page. This is relatively easy to do. When I assign Master Page B to the first page the
