  1. Ok. I see that if I remove the stroke around the text it doesn't do that. If I ad it back on, it does it again. But it doesn't do that with all text blocks. I wonder why? Thanks for fixing that and to let me know what I can do while waiting!
  2. I'm attaching the file if you want to examine it. Otherwise, go ahead and delete. WCCH_RL_11.20.afdesign
  3. Interesting because I don't seem to have an option for any values in my decorations panel:
  4. It seems there can be files with objects that have hidden selection margins. I believe this is a bug or something setup wrong in my file. Is there something wrong that the objects selectability extends clear to the left of the sheet? Check out this video here: ' Screen_Recording_2020-11-24_at_5_25.06_PM.mov
  5. When I try and click an object many times it selects an object far off. It will do this consistently in this document. I'm using the Mac. It seems to happen in every Affinity product with the files that have the problem. This was a PDF originally that I started with. I can select objects behind by holding down option and clicking. The selection perimeter of the top most object is very large. Is there something I'm doing wrong? This happens on other documents too, but not all.

  6. I just want to tell you my appreciation for Serif listening to customers, even when it requires patience on our end. I use the programs everyday. For 90% of our work it has completely replaced Adobe. I wouldn't be surprised that once PDF passthrough is enabled and works that we will be at 99% for creative production and newspaper. Unfortunately there is no replacement for Acrobat and the plugins that we use all the time. The ability for Serif to be able to have all three of their programs ready for a new platform on day of release of the OS is a testament to their dedication for their software and customers for the future. Adobe, on the other hand, hopes to have Lightroom by the end of the year and Photoshop out next year. Nothing about Indesign or Illustrator. I'm sure it's a mess of code because of years of just adding in without making sure was optimized. Thank you and God bless!
  7. If this is something regular that you need, save it as an export preset. I have my own because I need specific settings.
  8. I tried it again with the same file and now it seems fine. I'm not sure if there was an update to MacOS that fixed it or something else. Would it be possible to relink all the files at once if they are in the same folder? I can't seem to get Publisher to do that.
  9. I like the new select menu. It's a huge improvement and will save me a bunch of time converting the colors in PDF files to real black rather than the RGB blacks output by MS word. That will work with other things too! I'm not sure about the contour tool that the stroke (or appearance) couldn't do before, other than the bake feature. The stroke width can accommodate by creating an outline and then sending it to the back. Another current option in 1.8.4 is outline in the FX panel. Both ways are recognized in our RIP. What advantage am I missing in the contour tool? Great job to all of you at Serif!
  10. With this build on the Mac, ever time I attempt to export to a PDF, the program crashes. Any ideas?
  11. Is it safe to install the latest beta? I always hear warnings of installing beta software on production machines.
  12. That is the issue as soon as you relink hte first one it starts the spinning beach ball. I do have an update. I let it sit for hours and it finally came through and finished. Even though it finished, it was wrong because it linked to the first page of the PDF document. That is a bug that must be fixed, and hopefully soon. I then went and updated each and every page with the correct page of the PDF. Something is not right when links take that long, considering that is the point of links to make the document more manageable.
  13. A PDF with mulitple pages that is placed into a Publisher document relinks wrong if the link was missing and then replaced. All pages that were NOT page 1 suddenly all link to page 1. In the attachment you see they are four pages of the same. Though that is not what was assigned - see here: This is consistently a problem. Not to mention the file is practically unusable because it is so slow. I'm running 1.8.4 on MacOS 10.15.6 (19G2531 How quick can I get a fix on this because this is serious and I thought I would use Publisher for a big book? thank you!
