  1. This is Designer beta. I know this has been questioned before but I can't remember the outcome. This is a linear fill which seems to use a rectangle rather than a line.
  2. It looks like in all Affinity software the Layer Effects, Inner & Outer Shadow angle is limited to 45 degree increments. This is very limiting and makes it not very usable. I'd like to see any angle used. Maybe I'm missing something here.
  3. If I set up a document to be "Prefer linked", then pasting multiple saved images from the clipboard can cause issues. I sometimes (not always) get a message saying the link has changed. Images pasted from the clipboard should really be always embedded I think. At the moment, when the image is pasted it seems to be establishing a link between the clipboard and the image and its not happy when that clipboard source is changed. I know the linking and embedding feature is a work in progress so hopefully this can be improved.

    Textframe with border

    Hi Jom76 - I'm pretty sure the Frame Text tool can't handle rounded corners. But you can use the Rentangle Tool to draw out a rectangle and convert it to a text frame. This can then have corners rounded using the Rectangle Tool.

    Pasted screenshot causes crash

    Hi AdamW - that was ridiculously quick. Thanks.
  6. Here's a file. I think the original PDF was created with Bullzip and I think that has caused all the problems. It took a long time to open in Publisher and then it was taking forever to save it so I gave up. I opened it in Infix and then printed a new file with the Adobe Acrobat print driver. The new file opened very quickly in Publisher and I have attached the file. mont_easycon_de_en_fr from Infix.afpub
  7. Hi Adirusf - there are some strange things about this PDF. On page 4, which seems to have a white background, there are in fact 2 images which fill the page - one is white and the other is black. The white one is above the black one which is why you can't see it. Maybe these have come from the OCR package. It looks like the Affinity programs have put these 2 layers at the top rather than at the bottom. It's also possible the PDF made by Abbyy FyneReader is faulty in some way. Page 4 also seems to contain the original scanned page as well as the text. I think a lot of software would struggle with this file.
  8. Hi Baton - I have opened your file in the new Publisher beta. There are lots of missing fonts (around 30) and the opening seemed to take a long time but it did open successfully.
  9. Using new Beta 2.419 Windows, pasting a screenshot from the clipboard causes a repeatable crash. Pasting text seems okay.
  10. You could change the tint of the colour with a slider or a value. It's not the same as transparency but it's there if it's suitable.
  11. You're right. Hopefully this will be addressed soon.
  12. Hi Steaming T - select the Text Frame in the layers panel to see the transparency.
  13. Whoops - I've just realised my document was RGB not CMYK. In fact it seems to work correctly with CMYK selected.
  14. I find this part of the Swatches panel unhelpful. If I want something to be black (K=100) I can't click the black square because I get 84, 84, 78, 99. Similarly with the grey square. I can see where these values come from but it makes the 2 squares not fit for purpose for me. I'd rather they weren't there at all.
