  1. I second the motion that we get the ability to change colors of rulers, margins, etc.
  2. Further info: Task Manager shows the power usage is around 15% while this is happening. I don't remember the CPU use.
  3. honeybee.afphotoI'm on Win 10, 0.19043. Build 19043. Running Photo 1.10.4.1198. When I try to refine a selection, it hangs up. After minutes, I run out of patience before it crashes, and turn off the program. It's happening repeatedly - I haven't gotten it to complete the process yet. Based on what the person before me said, it doesn't look like it would help to reinstall the program. ? At least 2 different photos. Dragonfly image: the .jpg original is 8.41 MB, 4288x2848. The afphoto version is 19,222 KB. Honeybee image: original .jpg is 2000x3000px, 1,349KB. The .afphoto version is 4,555KB. I would have been working in it to refine the selection. I'd upload the photos, but it seems the paperclip icon below has the word "Loading..." after it, and it's not accepting any uploads. dragonfly-crop.afphoto
  4. To LibreTraining: THANK YOU! I couldn't understand why Windgings was not transferring when other fonts came out OK. I will try your suggestion on Segoe UI.
  5. Thanks, Guys! You have been very informative. On not using the "subset fonts" option in the export to PDF -- wow. The half-sheet version goes from 70kb to 1,246 kb! That's 17.8 times as large! Ouch! Maybe I can use a PNG picture of a checkbox, and manually place it. But Affinity really does need to fix this!
  6. RC-R: Thanks, but I'm on Windows 10, current version, being auto-updated. So it's not just a problem on MACs. In my computer, it's not showing the bullets in the very program that MADE the PDF, from the .afpub doc itself. If I open the .pdf and look at the non-bulleted items, the text styles have been not copied into this document. If I import them and reapply the style, the bullets show up. Then, since it's now back in .afpub format, I re-export it to .pdf, and the .pdf has no bullets. There seems to be no way I can get the bullets to show up in the program that created the .pdf, BUT some other programs DO show them. I tell ya, I'm thinking of springing for something that doesn't have as many problems, although I hate to not support Serif.
  7. Thank you all! The PDF viewer that doesn't show the boxes is Affinity Publisher itself. But thanks for the suggestion to try a different PDF viewer. It looks OK in Firefox! Why can't Publisher show me what's there?? I cold-rebooted and restarted Publisher. Still doesn't show the bullet boxes in a PDF created by Publisher from Publisher's own .afpub document.

So it looks like other people will be able to see the doc correctly, but I can't, in the program that created it. I will try reinstalling Publisher.
  9. I have made a text style that creates a Wingdings check box at the start of "Bulleted list". I add a tab after the bullet (too lazy to make it add its own tab in the stylesheet). It's fine until I export to PDF. The bullet boxes disappear. Is there a work-around? Membership-2up-Form.pdf Membership-2up-Form.afpub
  10. This has happened to me several times in the last few days. I can not group objects. Whenever I try to lasso them and use Control/G, the text sizes grow perhaps 8x to 10x larger, and destroy the layout. Also, I have "Show margins" checked, and they don't show. I tried unselecting it and reselecting it, in the View tab. No help. I'm on Windows 10 x64, 19041.04. Using Affinity PUblisher 1.9.0.932
  11. 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!
  12. 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"!
  13. 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 1.7.3.481 (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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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!
  16. 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?
  17. 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.
  18. 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, ... ??
