  1. As there is a version of Publisher on iPad may I perhaps hope that there will be a version for the other many thousands of tablet enthusiasts, not to mention the many smartphone users, who run Android as an operating system. Somewhere in the future maybe. John
  2. I know that one can produce a booklet from scratch buit is it possible yet to import an A5 PDF into a publication that can be printed out as a four page booklet pleae? John
  3. Thanks Mick, that's solved it for me, well done. I'll get the hang of all this eventually I'm sure with the help of all you good people. John
  4. It 's what the title says, I thought I'd try doing what I do every month, produce a newsletter every month. The first page gave me this problem, I gather from the look of the box now that it is trying to give me the opportunity of making a mask to erase something perhaps, yet I have not gone to Photo. Asoon as I double clicked to change the move tool to the text tool, this happened. John Cannot enter text.afpub
  5. Having seen this in InDesign I am pleased that it is envisaged as a future feature in publisher. John
  6. This would be extremely valuable for me as I frequently have to design a cover for my books. I can do this fairly easily in PagePlus and would hope to do it even easier in Publisher. John
  7. I notice that one can sort the solumns or rows of tables into alphabetic order, is there any way that sorting may be applied to text in frames as it is in PagePlus? John
  8. I put these posts on the Requests forum and Walt said I should put it on the Bugs one, here are the three entries: 1. Are we soon going to get an assistant manager in Publisher as there is in Photo? It seems to keep on popping up as a cursor while I am dealing with text. John Walt then posted:There is an Assistant Manager if you're in the Designer or Photo Persona of Publisher, but none for the Publisher Persona. 2. In that case the cursor takes that shape, (a small empty circle) when it is seeking to initiate a mask layer. In earlier forms of Publisher Beta a dialogue opened asking if I wanted to use the Assistant, nowadays it doesn't seem to do that. It is tricky to produce a screenshot, as I move the cursor to do this it may change back to a text cursor. If it happens again I will use a camera to snap it and post it. Although it does not happen as frequently as it did, it is still very irritating when it does and I feel it should not happen at all, especially when I do not ask for a mask layer. 3. It took a long time but this is the process: I am highlighting areas of text and removing them using CTRL X it to paste them into another document.I do this several times. After some ten or more times the screen full of text blanks out. I get the cursor shown below. I had it the circle cursor showing at one point on top of the text, as soon as it was moved it showed a dialogue asking if I wanted to open up a mask layer, but I was too slow to use a camera to capture it.

    Text doesn't wrap in .458

    Thanks Jon, this sorted the problem completely, I guess there are so many differences from PP that I can't cope with until there is a very good manual, and maybe not even then. John

    Jon I've sent it private because it's really too big for Affinity online, I have messed about with it quite a bit with all the Beta versions, maybe I should only try it with new files. John

    I tried again with a transparent background picture, this also pinned it to the text although I didn't ask it to. John
  15. Text doesn't wrap since I downloaded the 1.7.2.458. Although in 422 it did. I used Place to do the picture into the pub. John
