  1. Tudor, Thank you for that! How do I save a preset? Didn't see an option for that.
  2. I have not yet needed facing pages in the documents I have created and modified in Affinity Publisher. For God sake, please save the choice of not requiring facing pages when creating a new document, so those who usually don't require facing pages won't need to turn off facing pages each time they create a new document... it's annoying.
  3. Thanks guys. However this doesn't seem to address my issue; the Affinity Publisher Help states: ..."you can use the Resource Manager's Collect feature to prepare a project with linked resources for sharing. This lets you gather together distributed linked resources into a single folder, typically a subfolder under the main document." I need to extract embedded files. So... either the Affinity Publisher Help information is incorrect, and it can collect specified (not all) graphic assets that are embedded, or the Resource Manager is currently insufficient in satisfying my need.
  4. Please provide the ability to save assets listed in the Resource Manager ─ unmodified (with the same file type and properties as in the document) to a specified folder. This capability will save significant time extracting assets from an Affinity Publisher or IDML document, for repurposing.
  5. Serif guys, I am a technical writer/business analyst, and love Serif Affinity applications. Too often companies use Microsoft Word for designing and publishing documents. Many would argue Word is not the right tool ─ I agree. However Word provides a significant advantage... Everyone uses it. It's not about familiarity or convenience, that resistance is relatively low. It's about document portability. Usually one person or a small team is responsible for integrating content and desktop publishing. However, often documents must be passed to managers or SMEs (Subject Matter Experts) for input and technical accuracy refinements. Affinity Publisher has no mechanism for supporting that workflow. Therefore it is not practical to use Affinity Publisher in this massive market. I believe two things would facilitate this workflow: Create a comment/revision mechanism in Affinity Publisher, similar Track Changes in Microsoft Word, or Document Review in Corel WordPerfect. Develop Affinity Publisher Lite. Purpose: provide extremely simplified Affinity Publisher capability for text and color editing, comment annotation, and other tools designed around the needs of document contributors. This simple application should not provide page layout, typography, photo, or vector editing capability. Other enhancements could be incorporated later: 'Mark Section for Editing' that locks all other sections, preventing unauthorized or accidental changes Cloud based synchronization of edits (syncs only rich text and comments) Collaborative editing ─ similar to Google Docs or Word 365 Basic Edit (or Lite) Persona in Affinity Publisher that provides only Affinity Publisher Lite functionality, preventing unwanted changes This capability is also beneficial for design studios and freelancers, for collaboration and approval with their clients. Thank you for considering my suggestion.
  6. Never mind... I found the control to adjust the text size. For God sake... Please make it possible to scale the Glyph Browser for different screen resolutions. It's way too small on my screen, making it difficult to find what I need.
  7. Is it possible to create a symbol that includes text, detach the text while retaining symbol synchronizing with the text color, size and font? In other words, box with text: Cat Dog Frog with color, font and size synchronized for each word?
  8. Developers should always advocate for superior solutions. Apple's inability to keep up with standards is a ridiculous reason to not support those standards. Same with Microsoft and Internet Explorer when that was an issue. Website development tools all have failover features, often put in place for browsers failing to keep up with emerging standards. First the capability is provided, demand and support follows. It's always been that way.
  9. That's a naive argument. Developers should always advocate for superior solutions. Apple's inability to keep up with standards is a ridiculous reason to not support those standards.

  10. I need to have an image with descriptive text next to that image, and body text forced under the image. See: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/150927-publisher-─-forcing-text-to-flow-after-object/&tab=comments#comment-845210 Unless there is a more elegant method to satisfy this formatting requirement, I suggest the following: Please include the ability to exclude objects from being affected by "wrap object" settings, enabling specified objects to be placed as specified with other elements controlled by wrap settings.
  11. No. That won't work. And yes, I want the circled text moved down. All text to the right of the image is not circled. As stated: So... The "descriptive text" to the right of the image (not circled) need to remain at the specified position. The other text needs to be moved down, hopefully using an elegant method. I am quite familiar with the wrap feature capability.
  12. With a table image on the left, and descriptive text to the right of the image I need to have body text forced to be under the image. Example provided; body text circled. I would like to achieve this without introducing new text frames. I am attempting to enable others to modify linked Word documents and have Publisher manage heavier formatting. How can this be elegantly accomplished?
  13. Perfect! That tells me there is no lasting connection with my account and the product, and that I can sign into "My Account" with my personal credentials with no complications upon logging out within the applications. Thank you for your assistance. Very helpful!
