  1. I've just downloaded the latest updates, I was hoping that footnotes would be included in the Publisher download. Is to be in future updates? Ah well, perhaps back to PPX9 for this particular project. Shame I do like the new version. Bobcat

    Drop Cap

    I love some of the new items within Affinity Publisher, I’m trying to pass over some of the files from PagePlus X9 . At present trying to load 35 chapters of an unfinished book into a new setup. I have cleaned the text up prior to pasting into new document set up. Overall, getting there, I still get some formatting glitches. The latest one is the drop cap, it doesn’t work as your video instruction. Frustrated because I am trying to do a drop cap on the first paragraph, and the problem being I have a one line title 2 lines above, and that is the one that keeps getting the drop cap. I altered some settings and now it will not do any, even though the drop is set to 2. I type in drop cap with Affinity Publisher help search … nothing. Trying to find out what I’m doing wrong here. I love Serif Affinity Photo and Designer programs and had legacy programs for years, but this has been the most difficult to convert to. Using Windows 10 More help files please.
  3. I also expected ‘Enable spreadsheet functions’ to be included, I also have today had one cell that refuses to do anything but top align and will not budge??? Where do we actually format each cell? Can we have some more tutorial videos please?
  4. I can't seem to format cells within the table, i.e., add currency and to be able to add or multiply cells as per usual in tables. Can't find anything in help file and your video blog doesn't cover it either. I am still trying to ween off PPX10 and hoping to go onto Affinity P. Any more help out there for tables?
  5. Page Plus X9 always let me paste in Autcad dwg files, I tried it on Affinity Publisher. Didn't work. I've use PagePlus for many years updating all the way up to PPX9 and write educational guides etc. I must ask, have you any intentions of allowing this in the future? Great follower of legacy programs and also love Affinity Designer and Photo. But would like to be able to insert small drawings and also transfer Page plus file over to new program.
  6. I agree, I to have many PPP files and hours of work, I know that Affinity want to be taken seriously in the MAC market as well, but I have produced many a professional document in PPx9 or earlier versions. Now being told there is no intention of adding this file extension, well, it is Serif's own software after all, so why not. I love the legacy software and a great follower but just get the feeling we are being cast adrift. I read that PDF forms will not be included and also, at present, I cannot paste Autocad DWG. into this program, whereas, PPX9 does it straight off. Are we getting better? One thing is very welcome is the widow, orphan tab and a more robust baseline grid. I am sure some of this stuff will be sorted. I say Serif, please think again on ppp files.
  7. I have the same problem, I have so many PagePlus ppp files. I was hoping to load (or expected ‘Import’). ppp files and carry on seamlessly . Please make this available. There are other useful things (tools) I can’t find, that were well used within PPX9. Will keep trying, after all, have been looking forward to this program for a while. Wisper3
  8. Why can't I find and load page Plus Legacy files, I have loads of them and have been using PP X2- X9 for years, mostly for writing educational guides etc. and changing them into PDFs. I was hoping to be able to glide seamlessly, straight into Affinity, the same as Affinity Photo and Designer does with legacy files. I really don't like the idea that I may have to transfer text manually, just to be able to continue. Unless I have missed something being a newbie to this program today. If not can this be done? After all, I have been looking forward to the launch of this program. Wisper3
  9. Thank you for the information. I am impressed with Power Duplicate. Many thanks again. Whisper3
  10. Hi, I also am having trouble getting into this core skills site. This is so unusual for Serif. I have been using Serif products since PagePlusx2 also with Drawplus. Have just bought the wookbook, along with the program and would like to follow the book. Trying to convert from DrawPlusX8 , Also don't see the replicate tool, but I guess we have to do that differently too. Any Help would be appreciated. Many Thanks
