  1. Hello @colin foster, this is already possible. Just draw a e.g. a rectangle with rounded corners. Place some text on top of it. Group the both. This now looks like a simple button. Before you do the next step make sure that you have some anchors in your document. Next click on your button to make it active, go to 'Text > Interactive > Add Hyperlink' and add whatever you want. There's some drawbacks: It is not very intuitive in the context of a vector object to look in the 'Text' menu. This is most likely due to the fact that this feature was added just recently and is not finished yet. There's no way to open the link in a new window (at least I don't know one). Vector objects cannot be made to e.g. change color when hovering over them. I hope this helps for a start d.

    Problems with RTF

    Then let's see what the moderators are saying next week Cheers, d.
  3. Yes, but I do not read the Mac forum and I would miss this information. I think it doesn't do no harm d.

    Problems with RTF

    I can confirm this. The Word.rtf makes APub crash during place text. Additionally I opened this document in LibreOffice and immediately saved again as RTF from there. This file opens without a problem. d.
  5. I, too, did some more testing. E.g. with different rendering settings (also an NVIDIA GeForce chip, just a little older) and different things visible (guides, grid, etc.), all in german language. I was not able to make APub crash. Could you by any chance try if this happens in Designer, too? d.
  6. I personally appreciate to know what is coming soon to Windows. It also could be useful for users to not post a bug report if they see that it is already fixed on Mac. d.
  7. Hi @AussieBloke, this very much sounds like a bug on the Mac platform. I just double checked. CTRL + '+' (equivalent to CMD + '+' on mac) works within a text frame on Windows. Maybe someone else can try to verify. Now I understand. I tried this and it seems to work as expected with, both, the DELETE key that needs to be placed before the paragraph return and the BACKSPACE key that needs to be placed at the start of a paragraph to delete the space to the previous paragraph. I think there is a difference how DELETE keys work on Windows and Mac. But basically it is working here. Can someone please try to replicate? Cheers, d.
  8. Hi @Pattou, the paragraph panel was causing the crash at @VolkerMB's post. This could be a link? d.
  9. At least you are narrowing it down. Thanks for trying my suggestion. d.
  10. Hi @3drenderingservices.co.uk, something similar happened to me when the placed images were located at a fraction of pixels. E.g. the left (x) or top (y) position was something like 200.3px. Check the transform panel to see these values. Could this be the cause? d.
  11. Hello @Pattou, this is interesting. It may be related to another report from a couple of hours ago: I tried undocking panels several times without a crash. It would be interesting to know, what your both computers have in common. d.
  12. Hi @VolkerMB, I just tried this with the latest version (270) with language set to English and to German. I cannot reproduce this. It simply works There must be more to this. d.
  13. Hi @Moscool, I try to explain in three steps and give you a screenshot. I assume you have an APub document open with some text in a text frame. By the way: I'm on Windows. Select menu 'View > Studio > Text Styles' and make sure it has a checkmark. In the 'Text Styles' studio double click on any text style > a pop up window opens named 'Edit Text Style'. The 'Next Style' drop down is located in the upper section (see screenshot) I hope this helps. d.
  14. Hello @Moscool, go to text styles and double click a style. In the topmost section called 'Style' you find a drop down box called 'Next style'. It does exactly what you are asking for d.
  15. Hi @Stokestack, would 'Create Artboard' work for you? You can insert an artboard of the size of the selected object (see the dropdown on the toolbar). This basically sets the canvas and artboard the same size. d.
  16. Hi @loafcycle, I'm sorry to dissapoint your expectations. This has been requested several times and there is an answer to this by an official from Serif: Cheers, anyway. d.
  17. Create a new document and create two vector objects (e.g. rectangles). To the first vector object assign a fill and a stroke. To the second vector object assign a fill and two strokes. I made the lower stroke wider than the upper stroke to see them both. Make sure the Appearance Panel is visible. It lists one fill and two strokes of the second vector object. Copy with CTRL+C. Click on the first vector object > the Appearance Panel now displays one fill and one stroke of the first vector object. Now do 'Edit > Paste Style' (CTRL + SHIFT + V on PC) > the Appearance Panel does not update correctly to the pasted fill and outlines. The first object itselfs looks as expected. See this screenshot: Left: object one and two after pasting style - they look similar. Right: Appearance Panel still showing object one's fill and stroke before 'Paste Style'. d.
  18. Thankyou @figety, this version was released on March 9th. I was confused because you wrote on March 17th 'There is a new beta to download today...'. It was just a misunderstanding on my side. Never mind d.
  19. I'm posting this a new bug report after some of us came across this in a thread started by @maxen during the weekend: Here's the recipe: Create a new document and make sure the stroke panel is visible. Before creating anything set the stroke width so something like 30pt to make it wide and set one stroke end to any arrow. Create a rectangle (or any other object from the dropdown) > The rectangle has one arrowhead. Remove the arrowhead by selecting 'None' from the stroke arrowhead dropdown menu. Now click on 'Align Stroke to Inside' or 'Outside' > Nothing happens. With the object still selected click on the icon 'Revert defaults'. Set again a stroke width that is wide enough to see the effect. Click again on 'Align Stroke to Inside' or 'Outside' > Now this works. There seems to be something broken with the newly introduced arrowheads. d.
  20. Thanks. It seems to be a Mac only feature at the moment. I can't get it to work. I'll wait and see d.
  21. From your both signatures I see that you are both on a Mac. How do you get this? I can't find it on Windows. d.
  22. FYI, I created a bug report to bring this to attention: d.
  23. It seems, both ways follow their own logic. I tend a little more to have page focus jump automatically to the page in view. d.
  24. I think this is due to the fact that you are moving page 1 into view but you did not make it the active page (by double clicking on its icon in the pages thumbnail or by clicking on the page itself). Could this be the case? d.
  25. I wrote 'I, for myself...' because I speak in this regard only for my personal decision. I am convinced that inline graphics (or anchored objects) are coming sooner than later. Cheers, d.
