  1. Hello @Notes, you can accomplish this already by using symbols. This is e.g. explained in this video: Cheers, d.
  2. Yes, something like this I had in mind. The good thing is it can grow over time. d.
  3. Create a new document and add a table. Goto Table Formats and apply e.g. default format. Double click to edit Table Format. In the frame section on the left side give the frame a colour and click on the stroke dropdown. Give the stroke a width of e.g. 4pt. Click on 'Align Stroke to Inside' and the stroke aligns inside. Finally change stroke width to a different value > the stroke alignment resets to 'Centre'. I tried this in the latest beta and in the release version (see signature). Both behave the same. I tried this in other stroke panels and there it seemed to work fine. d.
  4. The table formats panel has a little menu icon top right. There you will find 'Import Formats...'. This way you can 'pull' a format from another APub file into your new file and apply it to a table. d.
  5. That''s a good idea Well, we're in the feature request forum. They will take note of this. d.
  6. Hi @evtonic3, I think you can achieve this by switching to the Node Tool (A) and click on the icon 'Reverse curve', see screenshot. d.
  7. Are you sure they are 'real' PageDown keys? On laptops they sometimes need an additional 'Fn' key to access that functionality. d.
  8. It would be worth a try to put images on seperate master pages if your layout works that way. Cheers, d.
  9. I discovered this in the latest APub beta but do not know if this was a problem earlier. Searching the forum I didn't find anything. Create a new document with one page and place a text frame on it. Add filler text. Place an image above the text. Add some significant text wrap settings to it to make changes easily visible (e.g. square wrapping with 10mm distance on all sides). In the Styles Panel add a style from this image still selected. Place another image above the text. Keep selected. Check that it has no wrapping set to it (this should be the default). Assign the above created style by clicking on the style once > visually nothing happens. Check the image's wrapping settings > they are set to the same settings as image #1. But these settings are NOT applied. d.
  10. What does work is to select multiple image frames and change their wrapping settings. This applies to all selected frames. The problem may be to select all images across a long document because it is not possible to select image frames on different pages. (I tried with an object style but there seems to be a bug) d.
  11. Out of interest in this discussion and your experience: what do you think of APh's rendering of a Live Perspective Filter applied to a text layer? Note: the text is still editable (see APh file below). I post this because I have high hopes in Serif's capabilities to come up with a finally good solution to mesh, warp and perspective distortions. And also with type. To me the example above already looks pretty good. Another indication to this is the recent improvement (in beta) to 'Expand Stroke'. They seem to know about math (Disclaimer: I found this method of using a live perspective on type in this forum. I just can't remember where and when). d. live perspective grid.afphoto
  12. Hello @AGmac, welcome to the forum. You can save a picture frame with wrap settings of your choice as an asset. Name it accordingly and drag it into your layout when you need it. This way you can have multiple 'master' picture frames. I assume you can do the same with image captions. Note that these will be simple text frames and you have to add and edit the caption manually. Cheers, d.
  13. After more than 10 years using Xara Designer Pro I choose to leave it behind because of their (mainly Magix') descisions on how to develop the software. There was a (not bad) set of vector tools (including warp) that were not developed any further over a long period of time. Instead they more and more moved into a direction what I call (a little exaggerating) 'painting by numbers'. Filling up the software with templates and templates and templates and some strange ways to get things accomplished (especially in the web department of features). The interface did not get any major overhaul for more than a decade. Xara was a very fast and ambitious software in it's beginning. Their licence model they introduced some years ago is another thing that motivated me to leave the software behind. For me there is no way going back. (Apart from the fact that I still keep my outdated version of Xara Designer Pro in case I need to open old project files or an occasional warp). Good luck. d.
  14. Thanks for the heads up. I highly value APub's paragraph decorations and can imagine that they get improved with more styling options over time. Without knowing the programming details (and difficulties) I'd consider paragraph decorations a blue print to text decorations a.k.a. 'underline options' as they are the topic of this thread. This could be very interesting once it arrives d.
  15. Is this something similar to APub's paragraph decorations? d.
