    MickRose got a reaction from Pšenda in Import PDF as JPEG   
    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.

    MickRose got a reaction from Joachim_L in Setting up a greyscale document is ...   
    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.

    If you click Use Fill you can have a fill for open curves.

    MickRose got a reaction from Max N in White line between fill and stroke.   
    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.

    MickRose got a reaction from Patrick Connor in Moving ruler origin error on multipage document   
    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.

    MickRose got a reaction from Lee D in Dashed lines problem   
    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.

    That's funny - the rumour I heard was that Serif was buying Adobe.

    MickRose got a reaction from Michael117 in GUIDES   
    On Windows the horizontal guides are only visible on the ruler for page 1 - not for pages 2 etc. Maybe this is connected to the problems in the transform panel vertical readings. It would be nice if guides could be snapped to units by moving them on the rulers.

    MickRose got a reaction from Alfred in Symbols misplaced/missing in PDF (imported)   
    If you open the PDF which contains embedded fonts not on your system you should get a warning of missing fonts & possible replacements. I have frequently found that if I do have the fonts installed,  I  still get the font replacement box with a suggestion of, for example, replace missing font Constantia Bold with system font Constantia Bold.
    But when you place a PDF with missing fonts it simply replaces the missing fonts with system fonts and this will invariably be useless. You don't get a warning of a missing font. Be aware.

    MickRose got a reaction from fde101 in Spread rescaling to include "Scale strokes" option   
    In the new beta 270, scaling a document in the spread setup seems to rescale strokes even if they haven't been set to rescale. That's sensible. Thanks. At some point in the future it would be good to have an option to not rescale.

    Seems to happen in the release version as well. I'm surprised I hadn't noticed it before.

    MickRose got a reaction from honiglachs in Problem with the size of the document - linked files   
    A lot of us have been confused by the terminology because we are used to the language of ID & Quark. Maybe  the word Linked should be replaced by Updateable and the word Linked only brought in when an image isn't actually stored in the document.

    MickRose got a reaction from MikeW in Greys not grey   
    To be honest I've just realised the palettes can be edited and renamed. So I've now got a palette called "Greys K only" with all the grey values using just black. Easy when you know how.

    MickRose got a reaction from Jonopen in Text frame fill and stroke opacity   
    I don't think you can set the opacity numerically in a text frame. I'd guess the devs just forgot so I would put that in as a feature request if I were you.
    I agree that your text frame fill looks wrong but I'm not getting that here. All my colours look the same. The colour next to the eyedropper is a different kind of thing & can be completely different. Maybe someone else can help.

    MickRose got a reaction from Wosven in No more rotation of the document possible   
    Pages/spreads will sometimes have a mixture of text frames, some of which will have rotated and some not. A rotated view makes it easier to edit rotated text frames. The orientation of the page itself is not the issue.
