    Beta update?

    If you look at the link above there is a list of unauthorised apps and they are all CC ones, not CS ones. It looks like Adobe is just trying to get CC users to use up to date versions. They are not suggesting CS software is somehow unauthorised.
  2. It looks like the vertical guide ruler issue is fixed when the origin is moved on multipage documents. Thanks.
  3. I don't know what this means. I'm using Windows 7 Pro, Publisher 312. It might be relevant that the clipboard manager was changed between saving the document previously and re-opening it yesterday. I have rasterised all the images and the resource manager now shows no links. The scrolling messages have stopped.
  4. I'm opening a previous document with a few missing links and I keep on getting this heavy warning. It scrolls up. I can delete the messages but it keeps on reappearing. It's very annoying. I think the missing files were just pasting from the clipboard but I might be wrong.
  5. Hi Jeremy - your list of suggestions is very long and would take a lot of work to implement. I agree that ID has a very good user interface and manages to do complicated things without a complicated look. I can't see Serif wanting to do the sort of makeover you are suggesting so what I'd like are just a few changes. 1) An "X" on panels that have multiple sections to close all sections. 2) The ability to save panel layouts as panel presets. Sometimes when you close or open a panel , other panels jump up or down in position. I suppose it's a consequence of all the panels being sort of linked like inline objects but it is very disorientating and sometimes you have to search for something that was there a minute ago. A nicer way would be to have a list of panel name on the right and for the actual panels to fly out leftwards. But that's looking like a too complicated redesign that won't happen.
  6. I think the interface could definitely be improved. For a start a triple click of the "Paragraph" tab to close all the subsections would be really useful. Or maybe an "X" on the panel to close all subsections. Same for the other panels with subsections. There are other interface issues which could make the software easier to use. In a way I'd rather Serif spent time improving the interface rather than adding new features, but I think I'd be outvoted here. What do other people think?
  7. Acrobat pro can check for total ink coverage. I'm pretty sure Affinity Designer/Publisher can't do that. But if you set the document colour profile to one of the newspaper ones that might work. Or set it when you export the PDF.
  8. Assuming you don't have the missing font, there are a lot of free on-line PDF to vector converters which will convert the PDF to eps. This won't have any fonts so it can just be placed like an image file but it will keep the sharpness of the original PDF. Or you could use an online PDF to image converter.
  9. The problem only occurs here if I use a PDF/X compatibility. I'd guess these are purposefully designed for CMYK printing only. If I use a PDF 1.4 to 1.7 then these keep the PDF as greyscale. I think APub is working correctly.
  10. At present if the first line indent is different in selected paragraphs, the reading in the paragraph panel shows the first paragraph setting. It would be better if it was blank. This way of working applies to most of the panels I think. The font size in the character panel does show a blank and this is much better I think.
  11. Beta 292: If I place a PDF by just clicking I can change the page number. But if I place the PDF by dragging out, then changing the page number doesn't change the page displayed.
  12. Hi Robertoad - could you upload the file so people can have a look?
  13. If you click Use Fill you can have a fill for open curves.
  14. It's there in the release version as well. Only when you align stroke to the outside. I don't think it effects the PDF - it's just a display issue. Same problem in Publisher.
  15. Thanks for 292 update. Some good stuff there. If I have a multipage document and I move the ruler origin, the ruler reverts to a reading based on adding up all the pages before the current page. It should just show the current page reading.
  16. I'm trying to produce an eps/pdf of this curve It always ends up like this. What an I doing wrong or this a bug?
  17. That's really annoying. I had to tweak that arc differently and now I can't create the dashed line problem. I did have to reboot the machine so that might have helped.
  18. Or put the cursor in a frame and ctrl A to select all the linked text
  19. Its working fine for me here, unless I'm missing the point. I just use the text cursor to select the text.
  20. If I create a table and resize the columns or rows the row and column headers move with the columns and rows. But if I use the "scale" (bottom right) button the headers don't get scaled and it looks a bit of a mess to be honest. I don't know if this would be called a bug or "by design".
  21. When I click on Preview Mode the page content moves down and left by a tiny amount - maybe 1 pixel.
  22. It definitely depends on the zoom. Sometimes it moves up a bit, sometimes left. If you draw a box with a stroke & click it, I can see that the blue frame with the 8 circles doesn't move but the drawn stroke sometimes shifts a pixel. I'd guess it can actually move up or down and/or left and right by 1 pixel. I'm using beta 292.
  23. I'd say when I click preview objects move 1 pixel to the right. No vertical movement.
  24. This hasn't happened before. Went back to an opened document and the hand tool was displayed. I couldn't get rid of it without closing APub down & re-opening. I don't know if I had pressed something. Pressing any other tool or the escape key didn't help
