  1. I had asked this before (and then entered it as a suggestion for enhancement) when others said it couldn't be done in AD. You can do it in APub. At the moment it's not a bug - it's a feature in AD.
  2. Same issue - I ignored it as the file in question had saved properly. The file was saved to OneDrive which may be part of the issue - recognizing files saved in the cloud.
  3. Perhaps this has been suggested before. I haven't found the search function to be very selective. In Publisher you can change the fill of the Frame portion of a text frame. In Designer you can only change the Text portion. It would seem that the code exists to support this feature in Designer (and perhaps eliminate some duplicate code) so I suggest that that function be added. I had earlier asked a question and was fortunately pointed to this solution for my current project.
  4. I thought it was a fluke but I experienced the same thing, slightly differently. I deleted a set of styles (imported in earlier betas) and then re-imported them. On the import they no longer showed in the list but when trying again they showed as already installed. A restart showed them there. The same thing happens with the current Publisher beta.
  5. Thanks for the quick responses. Nice to know that Publisher has this option.
  6. I've created a text frame from a circle. At that point you can easily change the color of the circle. Convert it to a text frame. Type in some text. Once you're in a text frame, the various options for color are then associated with the text itself. How does one go back and change the background color of the circle?
  7. I haven't had the crash, perhaps because I only have 30-40 external references but it is a pain to have to close all the message boxes.. This only seems to have occurred, for me, with the .238 version. Also, references to cloud locations (Onedrive) that are only in the cloud (not downloaded to the PC) show as "Missing" in the Resource Manager.
  8. Ignore the previous message - I found my mistake.
  9. I have a table populated with text. I don't want any sort of framing on the table entries. However it seems that there is a default (?) of a thin set of lines around each cell. I go to display the Table menu in the Studio view and it shows under Frame a 1.5 pt grey stroke. All the options to change it are greyed out as is every other option to change it. I can't imagine that would make sense but perhaps I'm looking in the wrong place to make the change.
  10. Is there a way to open and/or place a .pdf "as is" - without trying to do font substitution? I simply want to paste in additional text on top of an existing pdf supplied by someone who uses fonts I don't have (and probably won't). I can convert the pdf to a jpg but it seems like there should be a way. Thanks,

    CPU Loop in .209

    Went back now to Designer to close it out. Stuck as no responding on the Brush Editing window. 0.1% CPU reported. Cancelled as well.

    CPU Loop in .209

    Using the .209 versions of both apps. I haven't been able to duplicate it but Photo went into a loop (ended via Task Manager) in the following circumstance. I was creating a number of .png images to use as nozzles for a brush. I went to add these nozzles to the brush and when going to use the brush things seemed to stop. I thought it was just slow in Designer but on checking Task Manager it was Photo that was hung up. Going to Photo it asked me if I wanted to save the current image I was editing; I said no and the screen went gray at that point. Photo was running at 98% plus and I cancelled it. I went back and did what I thought would be equivalent but it hasn't recurred.

    Export Text Styles

    Thanks. Makes sense, in a way.
  14. In the dropdown menu for text styles there is an option to Import styles. However there doesn't appear to be an option to Export them. I created my own styles in a document and would like to bring them into a new document. Is there a way to do that? The import would look to export the whole set rather than selective so presumably the export would be as well.
