  1. Studios are one of the core features throughout the Affinity Suite. To access them they are burried in the menu 'View > Studio' which requires three points and clicks. I would suggest to have a toolbar icon to access a list of the Studios available in each application. Preferably in combination with a keyboard shortcut. (I searched the forum but did not find a similar suggestion. I may have missed it). d.
  2. Another thing to look at is 'Text Style > Paragraph > Bullets and Numbering > Text > More'. There it is possible to choose a font and its glyphs as a bullet. You can even select multiple glyphs. You could create an own font with your bullet icons or images and use that. This, of course, is also only a workaround. But it should work right now d.
  3. Hi @rbsund, look into the pinning feature. That way you can make small images work like a bullet point. d.
  4. You might want to look at this thread from September 2018. And especially at its last posts starting with @carl123 's 'But with a bit of lateral thinking...' This demonstrates some kind of workaround that could be of use for visualizing master page info (including multiple masterpages). d.
  5. An interesting test. I assume that file history is most likely part of the file size as long as you don't close the file and reopen it (and don't save history with the file). This is just a guess, though. d.
  6. Hello @Mikefac, welcome to the forum. What you are asking for is not possible yet. The only way is to hide the layer. d.
  7. Hi @Undecided, can you perhaps give a step by step description what you are doing? For me it works to assign cells a fill colour using the Table panel. See this screenshot: Cheers, d.
  8. BTW, this is one of the advantages of Syncback. You can set it to simply copy the files to its backup location and you can use any filemanager to access the files there and retrieve them from there. (Note: zipping up the files individually is an option). I assume some other backup software offer this, too. d.
  9. Hi @Doug Chaplin, this is possible. A simple example: Create a new document with one page and add a text frame to it. With the text frame active select 'File > Place...' and navigate to the location of the file to import. Click on the file and 'Open'. This will import (= place) the document into the text frame. Look for the red text overflow triangle in the right bottom half of the text frame's border. Shift + click on it > this will create the amount of pages and text frames to accomodate the imported text. I hope this helps. d.
  10. Create a new document. Add a textframe and one line of text. Create a little vector object (circle) outside left of the text frame. Pin it and move the pin behind the first letter of the text. Place the cursor in front of the text line and hit enter > text line and pinned object move down one line. Select the text frame with the Move Tool. In Text Frame Studio select 'Vertical Alignment > Bottom Align' > text line moves to bottom of text frame but pinned object does not move. Also, look at the values of the pinned object in the Pinning Studio. They do not change. I am not 100% sure if this is a bug or if I have not understood pinning options completely d.
  11. Hi @Tourmaline Good idea, thanks. I looked around but cannot find a list where I could add *.afpub. Do you know how to find it? d.
  12. You're welcome. The default settings of tools is pretty usefull. It just takes a little to find the most practical (= universal) settings for oneself d..
  13. Thanks for the sample. This is what I had in mind d.
