  1. If you go to 'Document Preferences' you can set to either embed or link to images, linked helps keep sizes down.
  2. Hope it helps - let us know how you get on, just in case someone else has the same problem.
  3. Try opening your file in Apple Numbers, copy the data and then select two cells in the first row of the table in Publisher and paste. I tried this the other week and it worked.
  4. Just my 2p, I do a monthly report for a client of mine using Indesign. Its a 32pp document and has over 40 graphs in it. Each graph spans a single text column. In the text, quite often there's a comment such as '…as can be seen in the graph below…'. Now, as usual there's loads of changes to text by various departments and this can mean simple changes to words to entire paragraphs being added and removed. Anchoring the graphs to the text means that there's less chance of mistakes where '…the chart below…' actually refers to the chart above/opposite or even page when text is changed. There's lots of features in Indesign I don't use (and I started out using Ventura Publisher and Quark back when it was v2.12) and I'm sure there will be features I don't use in Publisher, but to win users over from Indesign I have to agree that this is a real dealbreaker. I can say 100% I'll buy Publisher when its released even if it does miss a few things initially as I want to support development of it, but this should be a priority as having to decide which program to use based on the projects layout requirements (which could always change during the project lifespan) defeats the point of moving over to a different software suite completely (I also use Designer and Photo). Its all going in the right direction though, I'm very impressed so far.
  5. I'd like to take the opportunity to give the devs a pat on the back here. The improvements made since the first beta (and made so quickly) give me real confidence in moving from Indesign to Publisher as and when its ready. Keep up the good work chaps. P.S. You're going to give Adobe a run for its money - any chance we can buy shares in the company?
  6. Now I never knew that function existed - brilliant. Thanks for the heads-up!
  7. Thanks for that, good to know the devs are aware of it.
  8. Further to my post here, I've found that when I'm using v162 of the beta, it doesn't pick up the update for v170. This means some people may not be aware that their beta is actually old - I only found out when I was looking through the bug forum and decided to check I had the latest version (I didn't). Below is a video of me showing the bug post forum saying v170 has been released and my v162 not picking up the fact an update is available: Update problem.mov
  9. Just a heads up, the last few days I've been using v162 and I never got any update reminders; this is on my laptop, iMac and Mac Mini. All were running v162 and it was only yesterday when I was browsing the bugs forum that I thought about checking my version number and it was v162. I'd quit and opened it several times throughout the day and the update never alerted me that I should update to v167. On both versions, when I clicked 'About…', it said I was running 1.7.0 which was the latest version. Just wanted to flag this up with you as there could be people out there who are still running v162.
  10. Just tried your file and I can't open it either, sorry.
  11. At the moment filler text only holds normal body text and I think it would be handy to be able to include headings (or pretty much all styles such as bullets, initial words and table body) as part of the filler text, not just body text. If we had some tags (like html's <h1> and <h2> tags etc) which we could wrap around the filler text in the preferences panel, when we style each element we would be able to see the filler text change accordingly, not just the body text.
  12. Meb, is it possible to have headings (or pretty much all styles) as part of the filler text? That way you can style each element and see the filler text change accordingly. Is this worth adding to the discussions and suggestions forum?
  13. I may be wrong but I think filler text is actually supposed to be select all or nothing. If you notice, when you resize the text box the text always fills it, it never shows the eye symbol for text overflow. Its actually quite handy as you never need to paste more text in when you're preparing a visual, but you're right - it would be good if the filler text contained headings etc. If you paste in a load of lorem ipsum or something from Word etc you'll be able to select individual lines and characters etc. Regarding the leading, I normally change it to % and set it at around 125% or so. I agree, the default is a little tighter than I'd like.
  14. Okay, I've loaded this up on my work iMac which is running Mac OSX High Sierra and the crash persists, so its not specific to Mojave: Below is a screencast of the crash in action: Crash.mov I've attached the error log for this machine to this post. Hope this helps… Error log (high sierra)
  15. Okay, I've just opened your file and tried to change the number 8 to number 4 and was able to replicate the error. I've attached my error log to this message. This was on my laptop which is running Mojave (my office iMac is running High Sierra). Spec of the machine is below: Below is a screen capture of the error: Find replace broken.mov Error Log
