  1. Attached is the log file from the failed install - picked Publisher as the last. All three apps show the same behavior. Somehow it doesn't think it has the necessary permission to install. This has been an on and off things - currently apparently on. With a reboot, all three will install without complaint. SetupUI.log
  2. The install of the .445 versions went flawlessly. Now again the .464 versions fail (the application is removed but something stuck) and require a reboot. Then they install as a new installations and work fine. The StudioLink works as well.. It may be related - Windows did an automatic install of the 2019-08 maintenance for 1903 last night and got stuck on restart (and updated fine on a reboot).

    Beta updates STILL failing

    It might be worth trying the newest publisher update .442. For the first time in memory, it updated on my machine (Win 10 1903) without a hitch. All previous attempts required a reboot.
  4. This looks to be resolved with the new release .442 and the .434 versions of Photo & Design. Very nice.
  5. Publisher at .422. Downloaded Photo at .434 and StudioLink successfully linked. Downloaded Designer at .434 and StudioLink failed (says get beta). Uninstalled Designer beta and reinstalled. Same situation. Looked for earlier approaches - go to …\appinfo\Beta and delete Designer Release.appinfo. After most recent installed of Designer beta there is nothing under that directory. For non-beta (Release directory) there is both Designer Release.appinfo and Photo Release.appinfo and of course for the Release version StudioLink worked out of the box (realizing that it didn't for many). Windows 10 version 1903. What next?
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. Thanks for the quick responses. Nice to know that Publisher has this option.
  11. 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?
  12. 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.

    Table options all greyed out

    Ignore the previous message - I found my mistake.
  14. 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.
  15. 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,
