  1. Hello PaulD, My last works don't seem to suffer yet while keeping Mojave. Maybe it's due that I don't go into deep enough operations to encounter specific troubles...
Also, in order to use Publisher next to create illustrations, I need Scrivener and Antidote to place texts under diverse forms. As only Antidote has announced its Catalina compatibility, I'll have to wait to upgrade the OS anyway.
Waiting few more weeks probably won't be that terrible. Also, as Sidecar - one of the main arguments for upgrading - seems to need the addiction to iCloud... I'll stick to Astropad in order to draw from iPad to Mac.
  2. Well, it's what I think too... In fact Mojave works quite well enough! I thought to upgrade only for the Handoff function and stop with Astropad Studio. But as it seems to need to be linked to iCloud - and I hate to dépend on the cloud - it is almost useless to me to go ridding on Catalina.
  3. Hi everyone, Maybe I have overseen it, but there have been no anouncement from Serif about an official support by upgrading to Catalina. What's up? Is it already OK, or is it still recommanded to wait?

    Incompatible with Mac OS Catalina

    As asked by mail, I follow the alert NOT to upgrade to Catalina till I get green light from Serif, but also from Scrivener and Antidote... It is urgent to wait, it seems. Anyway, Mojave is still working quite great.

    GREAT! Thank you for caring about a desperate case! Your help did it: Sigil installed now.

    Gosh! I believe I'm getting too old to find enough patience to run around fiddling for things... I'll better give up, and wait till a developer pools out a user friendly interfaced solution out of some magic hat. Sorry for the bother...

    Damit! I go on that page... but it is this kind of carry Linux type of bla-bla-bla Where is the Sigil app/or installer to download on the page? Clicking on Sigil-0.9.18 won't do it... And what are these other links Attn-MacOS.Users.-.New.Release.Format.txt1.97 KB Sigil-0.9.18-CHECKSUMS.sha256.txt1.85 KB Sigil-0.9.18-Windows-x64-Setup.exe77.8 MB Sigil-0.9.18.tar.gz.sig566 Bytes Sigil-0.9.18.zip.sig566 Bytes Sigil.app-0.9.18-Mac.txz74.5 MB Source code(zip) Source code(tar.gz) at the bottom ? Is it impossible to find a nice installer to avoid a "normal" lambda user to get completely crazy?

    Huh! Tried to have a download of a ePub creating app on sigil-ebook... instead it was asked a very complicated GitHub registration. I absolutly don't understand what to do with it. Doesn't look like any kind of app I could use... <8O(
  9. Hello, I refreshed a file and renamed it. In the new document, the positions and types of characters remained fine, but the pages frame changed and Master pages have all disappeared. How can I grab the Master pages of a document in order to use those within another?
  10. I also notice an interesting phenomenon: in usual files, pages get blank when changing Master on pages with text. Instead, on the one I saved-as, the Master change acts like a layer with the correct margins added over the other, and text remains active (not as some PDF or something).
  11. Yes, I was afraid someone would give me that answer... Will it be possible, later, to "import" all the Master Pages later, much like we import styles?
  12. Thanks for your reactivity Affinity folks. Having the same problem, I'm looking forward to see that solved. Good luck!
  13. Fine! I'll try this out. In Final Cut, there is the color picking, to chose with color scale one wishes to erase. Anthing as direct in Affinity? Or is our advice to make that same operation "easy"?
  14. Hello, I don't understand the error I managed to perform... but now, when needing to erase a part of an image, I get a green (composite) background I can't neither use nor change this into transparent. I absolutely need the transparence to see the layers beneath any other...
 This problem scares me to death!
  15. Thank you Wosven!* I must have clicked on these anarchicaly... Any idea why selecting with Brush looks so easy and perfect (even when it comes to hair) on tutos? My results are always terribly bad... *and Alfred, and HVDB
  16. Thanks for having a look. Here is a screenshot. Also, couldn't find our how to get these nice masking seen on the tutos... How could it be more accurate (or less gross)?

    As already mentioned, and as editor and book’s creator, a direct ePub export would be dearly appreciated. I'm about editing as ePub 10 of my paper titles. There is a way to get them made directly out of Scrivener... but with a totally (and not necessarily nice) different look. But, is there any plan to have the feature integrated in Publisher in a near future?
  18. Though this happens frequently, I - perhaps - found out why... It looks like the drop-down menu's Vertical Alignement function is only active when using it when Text Area is selected to point on it. If this is the right tip, I suggest it could be pointed out more clearly for the user. Otherwise, the thing will only do as it would be a randomly appearing hazard.
  19. Hi folks, This is not a new problem, but I still get puzzles with it: How can I manage to force a last page of a chapter to have a top justification? All pages are based on Master Pages (mainly with a horizontal and vertical justification). I have created a TOP justification Master, but can't apply it while the text positioning work is already started. Here is what happens if I try (see picture). When trying to change the justification type on the used page, the choices are grey. When training to replace the Master, and link the following text, that remaining part of it gets invisible... and even so, justified the wrong way (yet pretending it is top aligned!) How can I definitely solve this dilemma?
  20. Hello, I couldn't force justifying text to the top of the page... So I tried to apply my "Justifie TOP" master to the last page of the chapter. But that part of text becomes invisible. How do I have to manage this to get the right result? Still would have lots of chapters to arrange that way... Thanks for any hint.
  21. High Walt, Yes: Master can't be swapped on existing documents. The turnaround is to unlink the next page, change Master, then link on the new one. This means to work (for a multiple-page book) taking care of not doing things too much in advance. Thanks for your help.
  22. I yet do wonder if it is possible to change the attribution of a Master page on a document on the fly, when text (or any content) already has been placed on the pages. By now, whatever exist on the page's document will disappear when trying to modify by changing its Master.
  23. Ho! Of course... this is a domain I haven't drive through yet! I'll have to, for sure! Thanks a lot.
  24. Yes, right. I just made by hand (as I used to): create a text frame upon the one already existing from Master Page. Onto the document, I duplicated that new drawn frame and linked those in order to place my text. Doing it this way, any frame can have any alignment. That shows me that creating "active" text formats directly within Master Pages is no time gain at all, even if hundreds of pages have the same format used. Is there another way to get more automation done through specializing Master Pages?
  25. I do not past into Master pages... but on applied Master pages in the book construction on the right side. Then, I do the same operations I used to do with the Beta (already done 3 books with the beta, without encountering this issue).
