    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.
    Sneak peak below...

    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.

    Amen to that
    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]

    The gradient tool still has trouble with the tool bar color box. If you click in it, it shits down

    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.

    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?

    If you have "Include Hyperlinks" selected in the More dialog when you export your PDF, the index entries will be linked to the pages where the terms appear. (Note that you may need to scroll down to see that option; I don't know its default setting.)
    TOC entries will also be hyperlinked by default, I believe, and the page numbers in the TOC will function properly.

    Rick G got a reaction from walt.farrell in Bug opening the Studio with a shortcut   
    That is the right panel. The way it is worded and in the training videos is the studio is the panel that pops up under View /Studio. You may be right and if that is the case then then need to clarify that somehow
    And yes you are logical as the items on the right are part of the studio list. If I am wrong it won't be the first time ... not even the first time today

    Yes, that would work on Windows. And as the OP uses Windows (based on prior posts) that may provide the solution they need.

    Try clearing your user data: hold down the Ctrl key while you launch the app, keep it held down until the ‘Clear User Data’ dialog appears, and then release it and press ‘Clear’ (leaving the dialog’s first three checkboxes checked).

    Rick G reacted to Läppä in Outer shadow max radius   
    …If you could please go ahead and make the shadow max radiuses bigger… I use them often to make the foreground objects pop out just subtly, and to do that the shadow needs to feather out wide and soft. And as the canvases are sometimes quite big, as in rollups and banners, the radiuses need to be quite big too, to do just that.
    Over and out.

    I'm seeing a tooltip that includes the file location and its name. I guess this only works if you're opening existing files.

    Rick G reacted to Chris B in Feedback on bugs from developers   
    Hey lmphotoz,
    All our bugs, improvements and feedback get logged in a proprietary issue tracking software that is only available internally. 
    We try our best to update forum threads once we've confirmed an issue has been resolved or marked as a duplicate or even something we cannot fix. It would be wonderful if everyone involved in the bug reporting process could track the progress of their reported bugs but it just isn't possible at this time.
    Anyone is welcome at any point to ask us about the status of a reported issue and this often gives us an opportunity to bump an issue.

    Rick G reacted to fde101 in Text flowing   
    Publisher still has some growing to do in this area, but this is at least possible without *too* much extra work:
     
    Create two master pages: one for the chapter title and one for the rest of the chapter.
    Start with the chapter title page and add the text there.  Add one page after the chapter title and make sure it has the master set for the rest of the chapter.
    From the first page of the chapter, select the overflowing text box and click once on the red arrow along the lower-right of the text box.  With the pointer still indicating that flowing is being set up, switch to the second page and click once on the text box intended to contain the next page of text.  This will link the chapter title page text into the next page.
    Assuming that page is also overflowing, shift-click on the red arrow on the second page to create the remaining pages.

    Hey Max N,
    This is a great find. I've just checked to see what happens on macOS and it pulls the document you click from the list to the left of the open document tabs.  I think this is how it should work on Windows.
    Interestingly, the macOS version only shows the documents in the list view that are not visible across the top open tabs. Windows show all of them regardless. Should Windows only show the non-visible documents in the list? I'll have to check!
    There's also a difference in how they are organised in the list view. Windows arranges them numerically and then alphabetically whereas macOS will arrange them in the order they opened. I'd prefer them to be ordered by the order they were opened—what do you think?
    There is definitely a few improvements to swing by the developers regarding this. Thanks

    Rick G reacted to Alfred in How much will a licence to use Affinity Publisher cost please?   
    It has previously been indicated that a licence for Affinity Publisher will be the same price as a licence for either of the other Affinity desktop apps; i.e. $49.99 / £48.99 / 54,99 €. There is likely to be a substantial discount for the first week or two after the retail launch of the product.
