  1. A couple of things I've noticed when using the appearance panel, these might have been noted before – I have a collection of styles I use to add textures, but if I have a object with multiple strokes/fills etc, it's not possible to add the style to a new fill layer without it removing all the other fills/strokes. So if i want to add the texture style I need to duplicate the object and apply the style to the topmost one. Is there a better way to do this, eg. can you save the pattern fill as a swatch? It doesn't seem to be possible to add new strokes to grouped objects. In illustrator for example, objects can have their own fill/stroke, and then be grouped and have new fills/strokes applied on the group level, all of which can be edited separately.
  2. Has there been any updates with this? I'm on a mac and version 1.8.3 and this is still an issue. The workaround above doesn't work. In fact, the issue is worse than the post above. If I click in the last row of the table it starts increasing in size. If I type in a row above it starts increasing in size. It's making tables unusable.
  3. Is there any progress on this as yet? I'm trying to create a set of repeating patterns and want them to have a hard, pixellated edge, so the nearest setting is perfect, but the repeat doesn't match up still.
  4. Currently using a tablet. App store purchase.
  5. I'm getting the same, trying to use the pencil tool, after a couple of strokes the whole thing freezes and has to be restarted.
  6. Hmm, that all seems rather counter-intuitive. Even after creating my own swatch set using only black, and applying that to the document copy, after exporting the text is all a rich black, not just 100% K. I've tried various export settings, but can't get the expected output. I've made quite a few documents in Publisher recently, but unless I can resolve this I'm going to have to go back to InDesign for the foreseeable future, I can't afford to spend time working out workarounds and getting unpredictable outputs. Which is a shame, as using Publisher is largely much more fun then InDesign.
  7. In a CMYK document, if I go to the Greys palette and select Black, when I double click the swatch it shows the colour sliders with CMYK values 0 0 0 100 as I'd expect. But if I then switch to the colour tab it shows the values as 72 68 67 88. If I then uncheck the "Lock Colourspace" icon and do the same thing, it shows RGB sliders with 0 0 0. If I apply the Black swatch, why does it show differently in the Colour tab? Edit – I've just tried creating a new global K only black swatch and applying it to some text, but after export the text in the PDF is showing 72 68 67 88.
  8. I've just updated Photo Designer and Publisher to the latest 1.7.2 update, and now when I go to print a document my printer settings have changed. Previously when printing it looked like the first screenshot below (Xerox features), after the update it looks like the other screenshot (Printer features). I'd really prefer to have the previous options. Any idea what might have caused this? This is only affecting the Affinity apps, CC and all other programs still show the Xerox features.
  9. I think I might've fixed it. Save History With Document was checked. I've unchecked it and restarted and now it seems to be ok again. Will keep you posted though.
  10. I've been recreating an old InDesign layout in Publisher, everything was going well until I've started trying to create some text styles to highlight sections of text in a paragraph. Whenever I try and select some text/move a text box or click done to apply a style it crashes.
  11. Downloaded the 1.7 update last night and had a quick play, really liking the new feature additions. Some of them might've been handy for this project I've been working on recently, ah well:)
  12. I haven't posted much here recently but thought I'd show a few things I've done in AD over the last couple o' months.
