  1. I'm using Publisher, the newest version that I just installed, and it does not put an outline around a rectangle, but when I use the "fx" outline, it makes the "outline" a solid fill in the whole box. (at least, on screen - I haven't tried printing yet). Am I doing something wrong? The images below show: (Left image) the solid color on the rectangle is supposed to be an OUTLINE, not a fill. (Right image) the settings. Help!
  2. Thanks much, Bruce, but I'm in Windows 10 x64, and that doesn't seem to work for me. I've had to re-configure it as "inches" SO many times tonight, when it's the same document I already saved with "inches"!
  3. I've gotta rant: I am REALLY hoping that Serif makes it possible to SAVE one's choice of measurement units with the Publisher document, and that it will NOT be overridden by points EVERY time I save and reopen the document, or export to PDF and open that! This is happening in Publisher (Sorry, I'm an American, and I've grown up thinking in inches. I understand DPI, or PPI, but not points or picas. I often produce PDF files, and those measurement units aren't what I need. Please.
  4. I just made up an ad (in Designer) for publishing in print, and my husband suggested that we need to see how it would look to a colorblind reader. It would be VERY helpful to have that in all the Affinity products! I do have ColorSchemer Studio, which does have the function of showing how your chosen colors would look to someone with different kinds of color vision problems. But I can't load my ad into it and see how the gradients would look, for instance. Maybe someone has such a program, and I'll go looking for one. But it would sure be great if I could check it within Affinity programs! Maybe you could find a developer who's doing this and pay him to incorporate his product into the global Affinity program.
  5. Well, I , there is a Zoom "to selection" that will enlarge the selected item to fill the width. That helps. I hope they take the hint and make us able to configure the Special Characters, soon!
  6. That would be great, but I don't find such a configuration. Does anyone know how to configure Special Characters so they're no longer an eye test?
  7. I notice that, too. Maybe they made the special characters very small to avoid distorting the view of the layout. But wecould use more contrast in the characters.
  8. I downloaded the Windows Affinity Designer beta trial -- I think within the last 2 weeks. (?) I tried it out a couple days ago, then got an email that there was an update, tried to load the update - but the link from the email to the update led to a page that offered it for $49.99. Seems that must have been the Mac version; since the Windows version is in beta. I have been unable to run the beta at all. A message comes up that says the program has expired. Nor can I buy it, since it's in beta. This seems strange. Does the Windows Beta version have a fairly short use period? Or did I somehow trip a wire and get linked in as a Mac user, ... ??
