    Michail reacted to Jens Krebs in Affinity Publisher 1.7.0.305 ready for release? (split)   
    I wouldn't expect (or want) any templates in a pro level software ... if I need or want templates I'm going to create them myself or buy them somewhere. I fear that a set of flashy, colourful templates will keep the professional users away. Neither InDesign nor Quark come with any templates and that's the league Serif is playing in.
    If someone needs templates, they can just buy them online (there's plenty available).
    IF templates were supplied to any extent, I would expect them for separate download on the Serif website - either free paid - but not included in the app.

    Michail reacted to Alfred in Publisher Beta Released Far too Early   
    Gosh, has it really been six eight months??
    They are now, but the Windows versions of AD and APh only became available near the end of 2016.

    Good catch. Seems to happen with me, too.
    Program is not using any CPU that I can see when this happens.

    Michail reacted to walt.farrell in No retention of formatting when separating text styles   
    Thanks. I appreciate the efforts you went to. That was hard for me to find.
    I agree, that option (Detach Paragraphs from...) is not working as documented. The Help says that the text will retain its styling, but it doesn't.

    Michail got a reaction from Joachim_L in Problem with autocorrection   
    That's what I'm talking about. So it doesn't work for you either.
     
    I mean "autocorrect," not "spell-check as you type." It's about the correction table (Edit/Settings -> Autocorrect).
    For me, the number "2019" is also marked as an error, which is wrong.
    It looks like every number with more than two digits is marked as wrong.
    So we discovered two errors altogether! Together we are strong

    Thank you, @Joachim_L. I'm sorry I missed that.
     
    It works with @Joachim_L's workaround. I suspect that this is not intended and that importing will also work with closed documents in the future.
    Maybe one can unite these two threads.

    Michail got a reaction from Aammppaa in Two tab stop variants?   
    Thanks for the explanation, @Aammppaa!
    The (German) Help states that the upper tab stops are right-justified. Because the lower tab stops can also be right-aligned, it didn't make sense to me.
    You explained it well, and I think it's a very useful functionality

    Michail got a reaction from Frozen Death Knight in Missing transparency protection function   
    Unfortunately, there is still no level-based transparency protection function. Some tools like the paint brush have this option ("Protect transparency"). For other tools like the Gradient Tool this option is missing. This option should be independent of the tools in the layer panel and should apply to an active layer.

    Michail got a reaction from dominik in Text wrapping using alpha channels   
    With the help of the "text wrap" it is only possible to adjust a path manually. In InDesign, I often use the transparency information of the image (alpha channels) to let the text flow directly around an extracted object. This doesn't seem to be possible in APub.
    Do the developers plan to implement this functionality for psd- and afphoto-files?
    U p d a t e  -  an example (use of an alpha channel):

    Michail reacted to spamjim in Unlock or override item from master page   
    You're welcome to check my words by following the steps I describe.
    Lighten up. There's no need for that kind of silliness.
    I cannot imagine why you'd be cranky with my post when I explicitly state that what you want is likely possible if the developers take it a small step further.
  13. Thanks
    Michail reacted to Patrick Connor in Spellchecker? (in 283)   
    yup, there is a threading issue in 283 that most of the time stops spelling from getting new errors. This will be fixed in the next beta

    You can also specify these values within a text style. Use the Text Styles panel to do this.

    From the menu: View > Studio > Fields and you'll see that your document title is specified as mcf-2018-09-miller. If that's not what you want then you should change it.

    Michail reacted to MikeW in Open office publisher (.pub) files   
    I am mostly software agnostic but do have preferences. I could ultimately care less whether I used Q or ID, for instance. But would choose Q over ID unless I needed a feature that Q didn't possess and ID did.
    I feel the same with software that wouldn't be my first choice. I simply have no preference between them. It's not that I dislike them per se. But what I choose to use cannot be tied to "I like the company that makes the software" and has to be able to do the job at hand efficiently. That attitude/thinking is simply a revenue-driven decision.
