    I am exactly in the case of Adriandw.
    I just tried v180 beta, and opened some idml I had created under ID. It works rather well, but I was very disappointed to see that spanned columns (in ID) are not yet spanned (in APub), even in v1.8.
    I am afraid to have to wait v2 and then to pay v2 to have that feature absolutely essential for any professional publisher, even for non-profits organisations.
    So, please, add span column feature in v 1.x

    Hi,
    Or, you can  simply duplicate the page of your document, or dupplicate your document, and modify the spread properties:
    (be carefull with the buged "portrait" check mark, it checks itself automatically when selecting another format, don't forget to uncheck it)

    It would help some people a lot if toolbars were customizable and those setups were saveable as presets. Aiffinity could even supply several setups for different tasks (preferably with panel setups – much like InDesign workplaces).

    Is it possible to colorize the "Studio" tabs and sub-tabs for a better readability of the interface, for example…

    Not practical but not completely impractical neither.
    See dominik's workaround below. I checked it. Here it works.
    But, yes, column span would be a very practical feature.

    jjk reacted to captain_slocum in Table Continuation   
    May I add my request for this, flowing tables, and also convert text to table. So far I have been very impressed and pleasantly surprised with the finished Publisher and have been able to reproduce most of a monthly magazine of 48 pages without too much effort.
    BUT, and it is a very big but, the reason I will still be using InDesign is the inability to flow tables. Here is a real world example: In the centre of the 48 page magazine is a 3 to 4 page calendar which is sent to me as a table in Word. Yesterday the editor sent me a revision, asking for two extra items to be inserted near the front of the calendar. I inserted them in InDesign and the rows flowed across the other pages - job done. With Publisher, I would have to delete the bottom two rows of the first page and add them and their content to the top of the next page, and so on through all the pages. Not only time consuming but very prone to error.
    So this is a real biggy for me, and I suspect many real world users, and I am very disappointed that you are only saying "might consider it"
    Perhaps you might reconsider your approach to this? So much is good about this programme, and I have several not-for-profit organisations waiting for me to help them set up their magazines so they can publish them themselves, but I can't, alas, recommend AP just yet.

    jjk reacted to MikeA in Publisher for Windows — Edit Text Style dialog improvements   
    (This appears to be the feature-requests forum, but I've been wrong before. If I picked the wrong location please advise.)
    I would surely appreciate improvements to the Edit Text Style dialog, which could be made easier on the end-user.
    Dropdown menu for selecting styles
    Please consider adding a drop-down menu to this dialog's first panel (the one named, simply, "Style"). Purpose: select some other style for editing. It would be useful having the option to filter the display: all styles, versus paragraph styles only, versus character styles only, versus only styles presently used in the document.
    UI Font size   : -)
    Text throughout Affinity Publisher's UI is small enough to make things, well, a bit hard on some of us. I'm glad I don't use a 4K monitor — if I did the UI would be so hard to read that I would probably not have purchased the program after using the trial version. Even on this laptop with its relatively small monitor, there is plenty of "screen real estate" to expand a dialog like Edit Text Style if a larger UI font were used.
    I've noticed that Publisher's Mac version has a way via Preferences to adjust the fonts in the UI. Not so the Windows version. So Windows version users are stuck with the small UI fonts, as-is. (I do already have fonts somewhat enlarged via Windows' own control panel. But enlarging them further using that control will not likely give good results.)
    Display of specific style information
    Describing all kinds of data—font, size, color (etc.)—simply as "No change" says nothing about the actual style data. This is unlike the style information displays in word processors or page composition programs I've used in the past. Even in the first ("Style") panel of the dialog, the summary information at the bottom of the dialog (in the "Style Settings" field) includes the actual typeface name only if you are editing "Base." In short: Understanding fully what's in a style has been made unnecessarily difficult. Please consider ways of improving this.
    Copying style data to the clipboard
    I'd hoped I could copy the information from the dialog's "Style Settings" field to the clipboard so that I could examine the style information using a more readable typeface, in a text editor or word processor. Each item in the field ends with a semicolon. So, I figured I could replace each semicolon with "newline"—voilà, more readable text.
    But the information within this field cannot be selected or highlighted (let alone copied). Please either add a "Copy" [to clipboard] button for the field, or at least make the text in it selectable with the mouse (or all of it selected at once by clicking in the field and pressing Control+A) so that the user himself can copy it to the clipboard and paste it somewhere else.
    Thanks.

    No, not specific tool. As soon as you are in a bulleted list or a numbered title, LibreOffice displays a toolbar with all tools to move up/down the current item, with or without subitems.
    Check a list having paragraph style=bullet 1, or some titles having paragraph style=Title 1|2|... For titles, you have also to apply numbering of titles.

    I produce publications for three non-profits - I’m using a copy of InDesign which I purchased as a component of CS6 several years ago - neither I nor the non-profits could justify the monthly charges for the latest InDesign. I’d love to switch them all to Affinity Publisher but without Span Columns (and cross-references for longer documents) it wouldn't be a complete solution and therefore I’ll hold off persuading them to adopt it (although I have purchased my own copy).

    Shift + double-click on the text frame link symbol will make new frames of the same dimensions as the current one on subsequent and new pages until the oveflowing story fits in the frames created. Alt_ double-click adds one frame of the same dimension on a subsequent (new) page and flows the story into it. 
    Getting the long story into the frame in the first place (.doc import) is not available yet.
