  1. Is there any method to make an overstrike or overline on (a) word(s) or character(s)? == a line like underlining but on top of the words instead of under the words (as the normal underline) (to make certain mathematical expressions in Affinity Designer and/or Publisher) Emilio
  2. Bug in zoom % refresh in context.bar ... I send a little video It occurs with or w/o scrubby zoom It occurs in Photo, but also in Designer and Publisher (videos for all three), is seems to be the same bug in the same procedure Emilio error_afphoto.mp4 error_zoom_afdesign.mp4 error_zoom_afpub.mp4
  3. Yes I said this also. I only asked if adding those labels could be a good idea.... sic: Title In modern informatics, the GUI/Ergonomics is the key Thnx Walt
  4. Hi for those people that don't have a BIG screen or our visual capability isn't exceptional.... screen real estate is not so big; when items doesn't have enough space in the contextual toolbar the exceeding are in a pop-up menu at the end of the bar under a double angle "»" in this menu, as seen in the screen copy I send, the buttons exist, but most of them with no indication of what they mean. I'm sure it's well done, as is the same procedure as in the toolbar, but .... could be interesting to have labels near the buttons? probably helpful (or waiting a time to let the pop-up help label appear, 🤷🏻‍♂️) Thnx Emilio
  5. Clean install of Big Sur (MBPi7.16MBRAM.1TSSD) No problems with designer-photo-publisher when quitting apps. Apps possibly speedier with Big Sur than with previous OSs Emilio
  6. Dear Walt I've tried to reproduce the conditions that made my afpub behave crazy.... but oops, now works OK!!!, so I don't understand its previous madness. Sorry 🤷🏻‍♂️ Emilio
  7. mmmm, i’ll try to recreate the circumstances, but as I discovered the “solution” (putting TOC in an independent text frame) I began tu put more and more text of a long manual, for which I have to complete text and recreate all the graphics (all that in my free time, as I’m physician). I’ll try and send U the file. Thanx !!
  8. When creating (and refreshing) a TOC in a text frame inherited in a page from one created in a master page, afpub goes crazy with the text styles defined for the TOC. Including if the text frame isn't connected with the rest of the text flow. Moreover, the app behaves strangely when trying to correct the style errors. Only apparent solution is to create the TOC in an independent text frame, not from an inherited. Is this a bug? If not so the app should say that this is not possible (dialog or something similar). 😐
  9. pagesetting involves using definite sizes and typesetting details etc .... so this automatics has nothing to do with . this capability y more near to some word processors...
  10. yes clicking on a numerical field and using up-dwn arrow keys works ok, but.... it is generally necessary to confirm value change with enter/return to see effects. it would be welcome.... inmediate effect to be seen also, pls, for font size!
  11. it would be very wellcome.... using one only tool (AFPUB) instead of two (AFPUB+pdfFormCreatingApp) with the advantages of fine tuning design all in one. please, if possible, put it in AFPUB roadmap (and not too late....) thnx
  12. Hi Some problems in spanish localization (Otherwise, a good translation into spanish!!) (1) Texts too long..." Alcance: Documento"->Doc. || "Buscar en: Todos marcos de texto" ->Todos marcos txt || The second half of the conmuting button is not to be seen, but "Text Flow" in english version can be "Flujo de txt" || texts in next two checkboxes is too long and too compact and small... difficult to read: probably simply changing "tabla de contenido" to "TabCont" or "TabDeCont" (ie. "Detener en siguiente TabCont") (2) Propiedades button.... either button a bit longer or abbreviate Propiedades... with "Propiedades" (without "..."), or with "Props..." (3) Too long and difficult to understand "Retraso de la descripción de herramientas", can be abbreviated with "Retraso de ayuda herramientas" (4) Instead of "Ampliar" in this menu, better could be "Expandir" (5) Instead of "Cambiar interfaz de usuario" (difficult to understand what the command does, better could be "Ver/Ocultar interfase" or "Conmutar interfase" (6) In this pop-up menu change "Valor Predet." with "Predeterminado", and also could be a polite image that all language options are capitalized, and not only both Englishes (GB and American) and German.... "Español, Italiano, Português, Français, Русский" (I apologize for the big screenshots.... has to do with retina screen capture, surely) Emilio (1) (2) (3) (4) (5) (6)
  13. Hi all I prepared a special colour swatches CMYK palette in AfPub, to use same colours everywhere between AfPub, AfDesign and AfPhoto (on same or different projects). But the palette file (.afpalette) doesn't open neither in AfDesign nor in AfPhoto Is a bug?, have I something done wrong?, or would be interesting having interchangeable colour palettes for the whole Af suite?
  14. Hi Jon P The newest update behaves exactly as I told in my first comment Having received the communication of the definitive AfPub version for june 19th, i'll await to see if in this not-beta is this bug corrected, or not. Is not a very annoying one, but user interface is nowadays a special plus in quality of software.... rapid learning curve, simple and foolproof access to functions, adequate visibility of interface objects, and, surely, certain style and elegance.... With regard Emilio PD.. my Mac is a MBPro 13" end 2018, 16GBRAM, 1TBHDD, i7processor
  15. I’m not an expert, but preparing a document in RGB that is an light composing process (i.e. a projection, presentation), but a document that has to be printed should be prepared in CMYK that is a method of adding inks to obtain a colour. In CMYK a pure black has (in order to avoid an excess of ink that deteriorates paper) C0M0Y0K100, or a bit of C if texture should be cold, or a bit MY if texture should be warm. And black ink is frequently printed on top of the other inks. So a good practice is to see where your document will be used, and what for, and prepare it with the adequate procedure or colour space. Sure, techniques/colour spaces like LAB are general solutions, but if your product will be printed, is better to use CMYK whenever possible.
  16. good explanation But.... in Publisher Help text says exactly " Filling self-intersecting shapes Shapes which have been constructed using self-intersecting lines can be filled in two different ways: Alternate or Winding. The former mode applies a fill or transparency to contiguous sections alternately along the lines. The latter fills all sections encompassed by the shape's outer lines. " surprising..... <<fills all sections encompassed by the shape's outer lines >>.... it's so (either/or)
  17. Hi all sorry for sending a lot of little bugs in such a good app In the Export Dialog, more precisely, when creating a new preset through the [More] button, this new preset does not apply frequently inmediately after creation. It does appear, but only after closing (cancelling) and reopening the export dialog. Is a problem in refreshing the presets list in this "More" dialog. Also..... this downfalling window with the "More" options is too long (in vertical), and sometimes gets partially obscured by Dock or anything else there down.... better a bit wider and not so vertically long Also..... the explaining text under the different icons of the exporting modes (TIFF, PSD, PDF, JPEG, etc.) would be better if they are have bit more contrast to the dialog background... Emilio
  18. I send a Publisher file with a Bezier closed curve, it alternates filled and unfilled when outlines crosses itself, BUT when changed the fill mode to "winding-non-zero" it should be completely filled (as said in the app's Help).... but it isn't... it leaves unfilled holes. Is a bug or the behaviour shoud be this like? Bezier.afpub
  19. Hi again, here is another little (not too much annoying...) bug in some of the collapsible panels of the (right) Studio. Certain panels: --Text Frame --TOC --Find&Replace do not deploy (open) when clicked IF they have any other panel underneath. The title simply highlights, but its content is not to be seen. This strange behaviour corrects when another panel being in the same line is already deployed, or if it is the last panel in the Studio column (the bottom one). It seems as those strange panels aren't able to "push" the panels under them to adequately deploy. I send some images of it: (1) Studio with all the panels collapsed, then (2) "Text Frame" clicked and nothing happens, after double clicking "Fext Frame" becomes deselected and (3) the "layers" panel (which behaves correctly) deploys adequately, after this, clicking the perverse "Text Frame" panel ... (4) it opens, and as the end, (5) the "Find&Replace" panel, being in the last line of the Studio (nothing to push down!), deploys correctly when clicked.
  20. Hi, in the (Char or Prgph) drop-down Style selector under the window bar (context toolbar?) after the first time it is used, the latest style selection is held as a white-text-on-blue-background (indeed, the actually selected style has its marker at the left, but is not white-text-on-blue-background like selected item).... possibly a bit confusing. Emilio
  21. Possibly is a capability I don't have found yet.... but Is a way/procedure to expand a table in more than one page, or linking tables in different/succesive pages, so that behave more or less like linked text frames? Thanx Emilio
  22. Yes I know, but in the top info frame under the window bar (which is the most inmediately seen), the symbol is only a [+]. All this is because everywhere the styles applied by default are somewhat (or more than somewhat) confusing. And the char and paragraph (or even the sofisticated and specially obscure Combined Text Style S), and the way they are hierarchically ordered (if then) are applied somewhat (or more) moooore confusing. This is not only a Publisher problem, but in Publisher is specially difficult. I hope when development ends.... Text Styles have a simpler and more comprehensive pattern. The way the Text Styles are applied, specially when a default or ex-novo style is used in new text/frame/table The usability has two key forks: user interface and using procedure ! (moreover.... think about creating a new table, an index, a TOC, etc.... needing a mix of good UI a good/simple procedure or acting philosophy)
  23. Hi When I make some modification to a certain text, that has a certain Paragraph Text Style, the Paragraph Text Style name (pTS, pTSn) adds to the end of the name a "plus sign" [+], very interesting to know when a pTS is not "pure" and is "contaminated" with any variation. A very common procedure in a lot of apps. [StandardTextStyle] plus bold, italics, red, more-left-indent := [StandardTextStyle+] BUT: the "plus sign" [+] doesn't distinguish wether the text modification is one (or more) independent manipulation(s), or if those come through application of a certain Character Style to the words, or if the modificacions are into the paragraph characteristics, but not to the text characters. --> a bit confusing.... always only a [+] It can be possibly interesting to make something to identify if this [+] corresponds to independent character or paragraph characteristics, or if correspond to a Char Style added. I.E. [StandardTextStyle] plus bold and underlined := [StandardTextStyle+C] [StandardTextStyle] plus greater left indent and centered text := [StandardTextStyle+P] [StandardTextStyle] plus bold and right align := [StandardTextStyle+CP] [StandardTextStyle] plus Emphasis Char Style := [StandardTextStyle*C] [StandardTextStyle] plus Emphasis Char Style and underlined := [StandardTextStyle*C+C] [StandardTextStyle] plus Emphasis Char Style and underlined and wider left margin := [StandardTextStyle*C+CP] Emilio
  24. You can delete all the styles, and select [set styles as default] from the context menu... and all the new documents will begin "without" extra styles, BUT there is a ""No-Style" style, which is probably app-dependent. I send U an afpub doc with the characteristics of this no-style-style A4v.estilo nulo[afpub].afpub , and a screen image of the "Text Styles" studio without any other style than both [No Style] styles.
