    HAHA tell me about it. We have a Costa Rican friend who asks us about some of southern slang. |Yall| Yalls" and I have even heard |Yall'sis" And of course I am "fixin'" to go to town. unless I wish to add emphasis then I am "DONE fixin' to go to town" Of course if we were in Louisiana, I would have to explain that someone born there is a "coon-ass"
    We usually advise to NOT incorporate these into speech, rather know what they are when they hit you

    Rick G reacted to MEB in Page Plus compatible?   
    Hi Lou Guthrie,
    Welcome to Affinity Forums
    No, Affinity Publisher (and the other apps of the Affinity Suite) do not support PagePlus documents. We advise to continue using PagePlus for editing your existing documents (it won't stop working) or export them as PDF and import into Publisher (with some loss) if/when you can do the switch.

    Welcome to the Affinity forums!
    The wrap options you need to set are for the object the text must wrap around, not for the text.
    Select that colored object, and set its text wrap options.

    Welcome to the Serif Affinity forums
    Text Wrapping is set on the wrapped object not the text frame (unless you want text in another frame to wrap around this text frame)

    Look in the newly introduced line ends dialog box (aka Stroke). It's the last entry in the drop down ... at least as a starting point

    Rick G reacted to Friedrich Lux in Letter/Glyph Tracking/Spacing and invisible signs   
    Hi everybody – I'm new her – excuse for my poor english.
    I'm a professional Grafik-Designer for Print and Books, a long-time-InDesign-User and also a Teacher for software-courses (for Aff. designer/Photo and planning the first course for AffPublisher). Now I'm testing AffPublisher for som first projects – impressive. 
    I noticed two little problems, which are importent for Pros with Layout:
    1. When handling a mass of text in colums – I have to fine-tune the Letter/Glyph Tracking/Spacing for a lot of single rows. Typically it's done by keyborad-shortcuts (alt + left/right arrow) in steps – now by 10‰. In my opinion – this step is to large – 5‰ would be better. Or a possibility, to define your own steps in preferences, like it's possible in InDesign.
    2. When working on Text on details – the display of hidden Signs (Points for Spaces – Paragraph-Sign and so on) is very important. I noticed, that there is no symbol for a forced line-break. But that would be very important – you have to find forced linebraeks.
    thanks a lot 
    Friedrich

    I believe there is a new range of Affinity t-shirts coming after Publisher is released.  The price is expected to be discounted for people participating in these forums.

    I wonder if size could be made more configurable?  Many might want the interface to look like the mac interface but some of us want and need larger fonts

    No they don’t.   They deserve a pat on the back.    But so do the developers.  One huge thank you for putting up with some strange comments mixed in with thousands of potentially helpful forum entries.   Nobody is required to be on these forums.   I consider it a distinct privilege and also a matter of great satisfaction that I may possibly have helped in a miniscule way to making Publisher the wonderful product it is — and was from the start back on August 30.   It never WAS “terrible.”

    You are probably not taking into account that most Macs use high dpi monitors while most monitors attached to Windows machines are low dpi like grafkom's and mine. Please revert this change ASAP, or provide an option. You already have lots of problems and bugs to solve, you don't need to create new ones.

    Also (this is a general rant and not Serif specific) I would like to tar and feather the ones who decided a dark gray on black was a great color choice for menus or anything else that has to be read [\Ranr]

    Hmmmm... Better call it a change, I'm not sure it is an improvement over the previous versions. The font used is too small at 96 dpi (unless you are less than 40 -- not my case). The previous font is much clearer and easy to read. Ideally this should be a setting, I wouldn't mind going through zipped XML or JSON files to change display fonts. Thanks a lot for the other improvements, though.

    Rick G reacted to GRAFKOM in Smaller font in layers panel (1.7.0.251)   
    Exactly, the font in the layer panel is now too small and unreadable compared to earlier versions of Beta and version 1.6.
    Please go back to the previous size or add the option to change the size of the font in the layer panel as you can now change the size of the thumbnails.
    Also, the thumbnails in the layer panel showing the text and text in the frame are now so small that for a moment I was wondering what it could be.
    And one more thing. Layer coloration is possible only when choosing 7 colors (faded colors), why only so much and why you can not create your own colors?
