  2. Hi Wosven, We found this last week and, I hope, fixed it. Could you try again with the next update.
  3. Hi Dazmondo, Thanks for your post. As you might expect, was picked up quite quickly We’ll have Matt’s fix in our next update.
  4. Hi, Thanks for the reports. I think we’ve found and fixed this one.

    No OpenType superscript

    Hi, Thanks for the discussion. We have the font. I've logged a bug report for the original issue as I understand it, and I've also logged a feature request for user defined sub / superscript position and scaling.
  6. Hi. We have a candidate fix for this now. Could you try again with the next build.
  7. Hi DNA0101, welcome to the forum. Where is your text containing hyperlinks being pasted from?

    No OpenType superscript

    Hi moononthebones, It looks like this is due to this font only specifying its features for the 'Default' script. I've just checked and Publisher is not falling back to use the Default script if features are not specified for the expected or 'Automatic' script determined from the spelling language (for example English -> Latin). So, I think you've unearthed a bug in Publisher, but the good news is that you can access your OpenType features for the time being by manually switching the Typography Script to 'Default' in the Language section of the Character Panel.

The best place to report any issues is probably the Designer Beta Forum. Assets We have removed the placeholder Assets from Publisher. Publisher will release with an empty Asset Panel. .NET 4.7.2 (Windows) Due to a compiler update we now have a dependency on .NET 4.7.2.

  10. Hi TooOldForThis, Thanks for your post. We're aware that the way masters are currently managed when adding and inserting single pages in facing page documents isn't ideal for every scenario. We're investigating possibilities, probably to offer user options, as to how masters should be re-assigned (or not) in theses cases.
  11. Hi PeterB, Thanks for reporting this. Absolutely there should be no rasterisation in the cases you've outlined. We are aware of the issue, why and what is going wrong, and it is down to be fixed with a high priority.
  12. This should work - I've just tried it in the latest build and it seems fine. My best guess would be that your afphoto file is not completely transparent in the apparently transparent areas. If you post it we can take a look.
  13. Yes, apologies. Win 8.1 should be fine. I've updated the notice for clarity.
  14. Hi Seneca, You can quickly create a new Text Style by using a new entry on the Character Style and Paragraph Style dropdowns on the Text Tool Context Bar labelled 'New Style...".
  15. Hi Mick, How thick are your lines (according to the UI)? Have you got a document you can share?
  16. Whoops, thank you. Hopefully one day they will, but not currently unfortunately.
  17. Text Wrap Borders - You're welcome. Sorry it slipped out in the first place.

  22. Hi rubs, This is a deliberate change over 1.6. As an example, incrementing this field by integer values when using inches as a unit makes no sense. Instead we now use an increment based on the number of decimal places set up for the unit in preferences. By default we use ten times the smallest value indicated by the number of decimal places, so 3 decimal places increments in hundredths, 1 decimal place increments in integers, etc. Also note that using <Shift> increases this base increment by a factor of 10 and using <Alt> reduces it by a factor of 10.
  23. No, I’m afraid we’re not considering this. It sounds like a feature for a full scripting engine rather than find and replace.
  24. Hi Peter, Thank you. We have fixes for (?=), (?!) , (?<=), (?<!) and \K that you should see in the next build. Please let us know how you get on.
