    Rick G got a reaction from Jörn Reppenhagen in Issue with Paint Brush Opacity   
    I tried to paint out some lettering this morning. The Opacity and Flow were at 100% yet the paint went on as if the opacity was set very low. I reset the brush although I had never changed any of it's settings (just to be thorough)
    I'm either missing something and this is user error or we have a bug
    Scteencast attached

    Using my own files in Photo I did not get a crash
    Let me throw this out ...
    They have a bunch of bugs related to the screen resolution being larger than 100%% Tou might want to check that for no other reason than to rule it out

    Print establishments calculate the spine thickness. It's easy to take that dimension and create a cover.
    As for ISBN codes, when I purchase one I generally receive the file for it. The couple places that do not provide the actual file, I use a separate application to create it in vector format and place it in the cover file.

    I liked the 1.6 icons a lot better. The new "minimalist" look if for the birds. The older icons show a classy design
    Here is my task bar. The Affinity icons look flat compared to the others

    Seriously? It is a publishing program and they named it (gasp!) PUBLISHER!!!  who would have thought?
    Ok I DEMAND they change the name to
    Page making thang
    OR
    Book setter upper
    If I don't get my way I will just settle on "Publisher" since that describes SUCCINCTLY what the program does

    Rick G got a reaction from Chris B in Uncontrolled crash in the Batch Processing   
    Chris ... I have had this with a lot simpler conversion. It is random and may have to do with the latest beta having trouble with some JPG files (at least that is what I am using when it happens) It just won't load certain files yet if I resize FIRST with ACDSEE, then the beta can read and load them. Do you want another thread on that as I am not trying to hijack this one,.

    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"

    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.

    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)

    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
