  1. Hi, See attached. Is it possible to position the bottom, upright reading text on the outside of the path? I have moved the arrows and tried the old Freehand trick of hitting return but no go. As is, the text is on different radius circles. Thanks
  2. I guess they are fixing it. I now have capitals pop up on a previous word after hitting spacebar when I begin typing the next word.
  3. Hi all, I have another question for my switch from Adobe: In Photoshop I can resize a document's size in inches without changing the total file size (total pixels) and the dpi will change accordingly. For example, file is sent to me at 4000x3000 at 100 dpi, which gives me a print image size of 40x30 inches. I want to resize to 20x15 but not change total pixels of file. In PShop I uncheck resample, change inches to 20x15, and the dpi changes automatically to 200. It doesn't appear that I can do that in AP, I must instead go to a calculator and determine what the dpi should change to so no resizing of the original pixels takes place. How do I accomplish this in AP?
  4. Looks like they are aware and fixing it with next update. Today I was typing a hyphenated double word and the capital appeared on the first word when I started typing the second!
  5. Thanks Walt! Odd that it's buried in the TOC style rather than accessible through tab settings but this will work for my TOC. I will figure out how to do it for non-TOC use from there.
  6. Will there be an option to add leader dots or dashes before tabs? For example in Table of Contents?
  7. For the first time I tried typing an entire page in Publisher rather than importing and editing. I found that the program randomly inserts Capitalized words, (just the first letter). I first noticed several of these after the fact and though it was typing errors, but I watched the screen closely, and as I typed the phrase "several times a day" I saw the lower case d change to a capital D a split second after I typed it.
  8. Thanks everyone, that explains it. Sometimes I was dragging, sometimes opening, sometimes placing.
  9. I'm so impressed with Affinity products that I cut the cord with Adobe to force myself into the learning curve, figure out the differences, etc. But there is something I must be doing wrong. If there's a video or tutorial on this, just point me to it unless it's an easy explanation. I'm basically looking for something that explains how Photo works differently than PShop in this basic area. If I import or open an image, (in this case, a .jpg from my iphone camera), it appears that I have to go to the layers drop down and rasterize it before I can edit it. Sometimes the layer palette calls it an "image" sometimes a "pixel." If I lasso a selection and copy and paste, it works sometimes, but sometimes I get a black background layer as the new pasted layer. There seems to be something fundamental to how Photo works that is vastly different to a simple import, cut, paste in Photoshop. Any direction would be much appreciated.
  10. Thanks, it seems to be similar although requires a few extra steps.
  11. In Photo is there anything similar to Photoshop's cloud filter that randomly creates a mixed fill from primary and secondary colours?
  12. Thanks, forgot about that on the Mac, will use that. I think InDesign has it built into the program or as an add-on, I was looking for something like that.
  13. Will there be a way to export spreads for print? For example I have 40 5.5" x 8.5" pages and would like to print each in paginated booklet form for saddle stitching. Will this be available?
  14. I'm clear on the chain/padlock, ha ha! However it appears that a valuable feature is missing in Designer that exists in all other programs I know of. Perhaps we can get it on the wish list for suggested feature upgrades? In other programs you can free-resize something by grabbing a corner handle and stretching or shrinking and either watch a changing percentage box as you scale OR see an end result percentage of change. This allows for eyeballing a design when you don't already know a given percentage that you want to resize by. Once the size looks good, you now have the percentage of change that you can use for other items as desired, using your 75+25% method. Now that I know how Designer works I can do multiple +% trial and error guesses but the other method is a real time saver. Thanks everyone.
