  1. How about in the current beta 238? I also need this to work but have not had time to try in latest.
  2. Yes, that is confusing. I had not got around to using those keyboard shortcuts, but would have used the normal arrow keys (which don't work). Should there not be a better/different symbol showing in the Document menu for the Page Down or Page Up? Can't say I remember any other software using those keys for a shortcut (other than their normal function), so can't say I have had a chance to see a symbol for them. In the Prefs/Keyboard Shortcuts I also get the question-mark in a box symbol for those menu items, so again, not very informative. But in the end, nice to know how to finally get Page Down/Up to work!
  3. Yes, glad that was pointed out! Would never have thought of that!
  4. This seems like it could be done with the now existing Studio panel without too much trouble. Let us add a link Name in the panel, then edit/add the actual link/url, then have a button to apply that selected link to a selected graphic or text.
  5. PROGRESS! Yes, had to reset the Studio in order to get the Studio Pane to open. Link Names – Well, sort of works in that in the pane you can single click the listed link and change it to a descriptive name, being careful to NOT double-click, which opens up the link dialog box. But it does not look like you can reuse/assign a link elsewhere. Really would be nice to have that ability with urls since many of a document's links go to the same url.
  6. Yes, just cross-posted in the Features forum. Reset Studio did the trick, whilst also destroying the very comfortable setup I had! They really need to be add the ability to save Studio setups as presets as in other software.
  7. You're correct. Reset Studio allows the new Hyperlinks pane to be used. Of course, it also destroys all the previous work of setting up the UI. Think it would be good to be able to Save studio setups like in other software.
  8. Can't get the pane to open. Have restarted the app a couple times, created a new blank doc, etc.
  9. STUDIO PANE/PANEL FOR HYPERLINKS Just started working with the new hyperlinks in beta 238 and am very appreciative that this critical feature has been added prior to release. However, it would be GREAT if there were a Studio Pane/Panel listing all hyperlinks in the doc with a couple functions. One would be to be able to click on a listed link/url within the pane and see where in the document it was being used. Another function would be to allow editing of a link/url so that if it is being used in several locations, it could be easily updated/modified with a single edit. NAMES FOR HYPERLINKS It would also be nice if links could be named, thereby allowing the use of that named link/url in multiple locations. It would also allow identifying a url's "content" or purpose a little easier, which would be very important where certain urls are used in a document multiple times and through several upgrades/modifications/updates. CONTEXTUAL MENU ACCESS Be really handy to be able to add/edit/remove a link with a contextual menu item. Thanks again for adding this needed feature!
  10. Trying out the new hyperlinks (needed ASAP for a client). I added a hyperlink (URL) to a graphic element, saved, exported as a pdf. Worked fine and as expected, making the feature usable. However, I then selected the graphic, went to the Text/Interactive/Insert Hyperlink (strange place for this since hyperlinks are very often used for graphic elements). The intention was to try to modify the link/url. However APub froze and I got only a "ching" trying to click on anything and most everything was greyed out. Had to force quit. After restarting, I just tried it again and it did not freeze this time on editing either the text link/url or the graphic link/url, so not sure why it did the first time. Thus checking to see if others are having the issue or if it was just a one-off. It would also be better if once you had applied a link to a graphic/text if the menu item changed to "Modify Link". Also would be much easier if the hyperlink editing could be accessed with a contextual menu item. Thanks so very much for adding this critical feature. Just hope we can sort things out to getting it running smoothly and with a slightly better access.
  11. Just updated to 238 but now notice that the tabs for the open documents are barely readable due to a VERY small font size. I have the UI Font Size set to Large, but on my iMac 27" I can barely see much less read the names of the open documents in the tabs (normally have multiple docs open). I also noticed that the designation for a modified file now seems to be just an "M" rather than the full "Modified" making it even more difficult to tell when a file is modified. Is there any way you can make those tabs have a larger font size, especially when the Pref for UI Font Size is set to Large? Now I am having to constantly zoom the OS in order to select a tab to activate a doc. I am assuming this is a bug/change from previous version of the beta, although I work in APhoto far more often than APub. But I don't remember this being an issue in previous betas. Thanks.
  12. I'm currently running CS5 ID and PS in a Parallels 14 macOS Sierra VM along with another critical app that stopped working in High Sierra. Runs fine on my iMac. Just create the VM using a USB drive containing the Sierra install app, then restore your new virtual HD from a Time Machine backup. No need to install the apps again.
  13. Tried to open APub and got the Update to 192 notification. However, all clicks resulted in an error sound with everything locked. Could not even quit and had to do a Force Quit. Tried multiple times with same results. It had worked for me with a couple previous updates, so not sure what went wrong with this one. High Sierra
  14. As a side note to using CS5-6 ID and PS with macOS changes, it had held us back from upgrading to High Sierra. However, after some work and research, I upgraded my Parallels and added a Sierra Guest VM where my CS5 apps run just fine. After upgrading to High Sierra on the real HD, I find that my CS 5 apps work there fine as well, so still very usable. However, I'm going to keep my virtual Sierra drive for a couple other apps that died with the High Sierra upgrade. They all are running just fine in the virtual drive and I have copy/paste, file sharing between the real HD (High Sierra) and the VM, so it's providing a great workaround to keep my legacy apps working. On getting ID files into APub, as I've said in previous posts to this thread, it is critical to be able to do this. Our company has massive client files in ID and PS that have to be able to be used as the basis for revisions, etc. While I have used the Open PDF in APub, as stated by many, that method has a lot of limitations that make it only appropriate for small, simple file conversions. Anything complex, it simply won't import correctly. That means a huge cost to the client to rebuild the entire document in APub, something most clients simply won't pay. If APub is going to become part of the workflow, we really need to be able to use our legacy client files. When we switched to APhoto from PS, we had reasonable success in importing most (but not all) PS files, so the transition has been good for the most part (still missing some critical comparable features). But with APub, if we are to actually switch to it, we have to be able to get a majority of our client files into APub. Over the many, many years of doing this (going back to Aldus PM V1), we have never had the need to use IDML, so have no knowledge as to whether that will be a reasonable way to convert our thousands of ID client files. I hope it will work given that Serif has stated that they are working towards adding that. But that is an area where we have no experience. We have numerous complex corporate CS5 ID files that require conversion/import if we are to use APub in our workflow. That's why we're following this thread to see if this is going to turn out well. Love APub so far, but do need the ability to bring in old client files!
  15. As a follow-up (slightly delayed), we recently upgraded to High Sierra plus the newest 157 build. Thus decided to see if the spelling language had been resolved. In High Sierra, we were able to follow your guide for finding the improved Language settings where we could finally turn off the multiple never-used languages. We also had to turn back on British English despite having had it as one of the two "preferred" languages in Sierra. Once that was done and we restarted APub, we are now getting the correct choices of US and UK English. Finally!!! I think the main issue was Sierra versus High Sierra and how Languages are set/available. Anyway, RESOLVED!
  16. Recently upgraded to High Sierra and both InDesign and PS CS5 work fine. Only quirk is that they both do an unexpected quit after you quit the app (as in Sierra). Everything works fine, everything is saved, but it does throw the dialog. Everyone using it just ignores the notification. Some people are reporting that CS5 is also working on Mojave, but we're not brave enough to try that yet! That said, we look forward to migrating to Affinity products in order to enjoy newer technology, better interface, and decent pricing. But like many, we do need to import our massive catalog of client InDesign work since much of what we do is based on previous client work. And in many cases, opening a pdf doesn't bring in things properly for a more complex document (as discussed in numerous threads). But we're hoping that one way or another Affinity will figure this thing out and figure out a way to allow us to do our work using APub. But besides ID importing, we also require web links for our pdf exports since so much "printed" work today is distributed electronically as a pdf, thus requiring web links. But we're again hoping that issue gets resolved as well.
  17. The missing font(s) were Futura variations and a couple Swiss. We tried to replace the Futura with our Futura of the same or other styles. Most (and the correct variations) don't stick (as per the video). The Swiss are now sticking, though didn't previously. I tried with other fonts and some stick while others don't. Again, we may have faulty fonts such as our Futura families, or the pdf may contain faulty futura fonts. Not really sure, although we did get it to happen with a couple other fonts that I can't remember at this moment. ScreenRecord-Font_Change.mov
  18. Just tried it with 140 and still have issues. Some changes in the missing fonts stick while most do not. Seems I can change the font family but the style seems random as to whether it will stick or not. Not had that issue in ID with these files. I also just tried opening it in AD and it has the same issue, so perhaps there is something wrong with the pdf, or even possibly with my fonts! However, I've never had this issue with other apps including ID and PS, so not sure what to say. Aero-Fac A4 6pp Brochure.pdf
  19. Still doing it with 139. Multiple PDF's that are opened in APub do it. I've attached one of them I just tried 139 with. Open Resource Manager, Select all graphics, click on Make Linked, once Open dialog opens, click cancel and APub crashes every time. Yacht Photo Package Brochure v2 - bleed.pdf
