  1. A recent post on Facebook Designer group praises "text by speech". How do I find out about this? Does it also apply to Publisher and Photo?
  2. Thanks for the extra comment. I will try to grasp the concepts.
  3. OK will try That worked, thankyou. But I am still not clear about the panel at the top of the text styles panel, what it is for, and why it is there. Another tutorial video from Affinity would be useful at some stage. Once again thanks for prompt, clear advice
  4. Op system Windows 10 Pro version 1909 Affinity Publisher latest version checked I was experimenting with layered master pages in APub. It is not clear whether this is the cause of the issue, or is it due to the particular fonts I am using.? Also I have 2 font groups in play. When I create a new text box (in my case called Body Slide) it is created at 'Body Slide+', which adds italic mode (presumably a leftover from clearing the Lucida Calligraphy from a buffer). If I appl Body Slide again, I would expect the italic mode to disappear. It does not. (For information: the body slide text style is identical to the default body except that the text fill is white} (For information: The Base text style has been changed to Trebuchet MS as a font. No other changes. A new style group called Headings uses Lucida Calligraphy, Yellow) The problem is illustrated in the attached video clip ScreenRecorderProject1.mov
  5. I have recently completed the Udemy course "Affinity Designer, Solid Foundations" by Simon Foster. Thoroughly enjoyed it (17.5 hours of video!). In one section, Simon used the scenario of proposing a presentation to a client using artboards, symbols, Simon has 30 years experience as a professional designer, and it shows. The course starts with basics, but leads on to more advanced workflows The section on Presentations works well so far as it goes. But if you map the ideas on to PowerPoint, then it misses a few tricks which are nothing to do with Affinity Designer. So could it be developed? And if so, would it then be a useful tool for creating PowerPoint presentations? The presentation below sets out this opportunity, which I am pleased to say I have discussed with Simon, though the words used are entirely mine. Sample artboards can be downloaded - see notes below video. It is more of an exploration than a tutorial. (There are notes with timings for the topics covered after the You Tube posting. Some relate to Affinity features that gave a few problems)
  6. Well done Serif I am too old and lack the skills to take advantage of the offer you have made, but I applaud it. I have been a Serif customer since 2001, and follow the development of your company with great interest. (Still looking forward to your DAM!)
  7. Affinity Photo 1,7: Flood select has stopped working.All other functions seem OK (including brush select). Any suggestions? [ PROBLEM SOLVED: OBJECT i WAS TRYING TO SELECT WITH FLOOD SELECT TOOL NEEDED TO BE RASTERISED]
  8. Yes. If I export brushes, I get a Windows dialog I thought I would check back. If I try to export the styles category now, I also get a Windows dialog. It seems something was jammed, and is no longer jammed. Irritating, but I suspect we will not find it now! (Footnote: Windows has been automatically updated in recent days)
  9. Dan C File data as requested Regards Graham objectstyles.propcol
  10. walt. Farrell And therein lies the problem I have spent a lot of time importing styles from sets I have accumulated over the years, so I would lose a lot by doing a reset. If possible I want to avoid that. Also, I do not need in the short term to export styles, so the costs outweigh the benefits. Nevertheless, I would like to track down the problem.
  11. Dan C As this is a new machine resetting presented no problems. However, I did not select "reset object styles" as this would mean a lot of work if the styles were lost. I should point out that Designer is behaving in an identical manner Still no result. I have used a workaround so that I do not need to export styles at the moment, but it would be good to get to the bottom of the problem. Thanks for your patience
  12. Sadly no change. Incidentally the next item down "show as list" is also not working
  13. I have done as you suggest (including doing a disk cleanup, and a Norton file cleanup). I do not get a windows dialog when I select "Export Styles Category' Regarding the ipad, it worked well once I had discovered the location of the styles tab! My ignorance is now marginally less than it was!
