  1. I know what Wendover Man means about horizantal red line--in my document, those are the spelling prompts for some text I have on my main image. When I go to delete the artboard to the side of my main image (which, itself, is not an artboard), everything disappears except those little squiggly red lines. I opened up an artboard to create arrows with text, that I then used to label my main image. I grouped all that together, but still can't seem to ditch that artboard. Any tips? I'm using the latest version of Designer.
  2. Thanks for posting this. It worked like a charm! I was able to make the ruler transparent to fit over my illustration for my pattern. I appreciate these forums. Flying Geese Trimming.afdesign
  3. Thank you, thank you! I already put a blurb up on my blog OPQuilt.com, encouraging my readers to head to Affinity to purchase, and have pre-ordered my own. I was happy to help in my own small and puny ways towards this fabulous program; I am so appreciative for all your work! (And yes, I own all three Affinity programs--can't see why not!)
  4. Arrowheads! We have Arrowheads for Line Styles from Designer. The best place to report any issues is probably the Designer Beta Forum. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I'M IN LOVE!!! Thank you for arrows. So far, they are fantastic!! On a more serious note, download went well: all my files opened just fine with this update, and things seem to be working smoothly.
  5. All good things to try--thank you so much. I figured I just had to wait until they were all done with their Betas before it would work. I appreciate your help.
  6. I uploaded it this morning, as well as a screenshot of what I see. Thanks for your help. Sorry to bother you if it's nothing at all--
  7. Will do. I have a broken document from the previous iteration, but would rather send it privately. It lost its Master page in the transfer, and you can see all the font problems. But it is my work on my quilt pattern, and don't really want it out and about too much. Elizabeth
  8. True--sorry for the incorrect identification. The captions are Candara. The body text is Optima. Thanks for looking at this.
  9. I only have the screen shots, as I went in to the document and fixed everything already. I also went into the Character Panel, played around with Tracking and Kearning (I think this is a tracking problem), but to no avail, so I just manually changed everything. I had to re-write the entire document on the last Beta upgrade, but was hoping this new one wouldn't do the shrinking-spaces business. Font is Optima. Thank so much for trying to help.
  10. I wrote the text myself, in Publisher, two beta versions ago. Each time we do a new Beta, it scrambles again. So I copy and paste the offending passages into MSWord (stripping out formatting first), re-type it, and load it up in the messed up places.
  11. When creating a new document in PubBeta 238, all is well. If opening up a previously written document, it collapses the spacing in between words, forcing me to re-type much of the document. When I type in new text, the spacing is double the normal. So...1) does that mean that any document brought forward from earlier versions is dead (or requires tons of re-writing), OR 2) this is just a glitch of Beta testing, OR 3) this is a legit concern? I don't like to bother the moderators with weird bits that aren't real bugs. My apologies. This happened to me on the earlier beta (moving up to the one before this) as well. Two images attached to illustrate. The first one is inside the document in PubBeta. The strange spacing forces the squiggly red underline, as it should. The second one shows what's going on when that text is pasted ("paste special" command, with "unformatted text" chosen). Any help would be appreciated, if it's not a bug. Thanks.
  12. Just to say thanks. I updated to newest Beta, and everything seems to be fine. I'll leave the more particular bugginess issues to the More Experienced Users, who are more familiar with what this program should do, but for a small-time user, it's working great. I wrote up two of my quilt patterns, exported as PDF, and they are out in the world. One friend noted a quirk: Where the photo shows a big black area, there was a text chart (right above the label Row House Roofs). She could see it fine on the screen, but when she tried to print, it was blacked out. I updated in the newest Beta and re-sent; she said it worked. I figured it was something odd that couldn't be reproduced in the previous Beta Version, but just thought I'd mention here.
  13. Hear! Hear! The difficulty is in trying to test out Publisher, a document is created (and yes, I have some attachment to it). If the builds aren't on auto-update, then there is no problem at all. But when I went back in to work on a document after being away for two weeks, it was pretty much unworkable. Still, I'm all in on this, so thank you for giving us the opportunity.
  14. So true (she blushes in shame). I just think of Affinity as some soft of SuperSoftware, without any flaws, so didn't think of that first. I do still wonder, though, if software gets "tired." Yes?
  15. Okay, so this morning it works, after shutting down the software all night. Does the software "get tired"? (if that is such a thing). I tried six ways to heaven to get that button to work yesterday, but no go. This morning-- it's a yes. Thanks for your help.
