  1. I think it is too early to expect scripting support. Features (and I assume inner workings, too) are still added and modified. It does not make sense to try to script these things because with each modification and addition the scripting side of these had to be adapted as well. Once everything is setup and the basic feature set is there (= released) scripting may follow at some point. d.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Thanks for this list. I searched the forum before posting but could not find any of these d.
  5. 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.
  6. Hi @rbsund, look into the pinning feature. That way you can make small images work like a bullet point. d.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. Hello @Mikefac, welcome to the forum. What you are asking for is not possible yet. The only way is to hide the layer. d.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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..
  15. Thanks for the sample. This is what I had in mind d.
  16. In the font drop down list there is a heart shape at the right side of each font entry. Click this to make the font a favourite. At the top of the font drop down list there is a button to only display favourite fonts. You also can set defaults for the tools. I think this was explained in other threads already. It works for the text frame tool, too d.
  17. Or the size of the frame is high enough right from the beginning. Say e.g. five lines. If the paragraph style fixes the text at the bottom of the frame then there should be room to grow upwards. Paragraph decorations could take care of borders, if needed. d.
  18. For me XNViewMP works as a good replacement to Adobe Bridge, too. Only APub files show up as icons. I assume this will change some time later. d.
  19. From how I understand it ivbera want's to grow artistic text upward instead of downward if more textlines are added. I just tried with constraints and it seems it doesn't work. I want to add that constraints are one of the features I'm less familiar with. d.
  20. Just a thought: would constraint work? (I'm not at my APub computer, so I can't try myself). d.
  21. Please keep in mind that one of the major features is not even there, yet: the Designer and Photo personas. This is perhaps not wrong but certainly missing before an official release d.
  22. Thanks for the thumps up. It is finally here after more than two hours and several disruptions. It may as well be a connection problem between my service provider and Amazon S3. Going to install ... d.
  23. Good news, thank you. Just for the record, the download again is extremely slow, just like .302. I had this never before. d.
