  1. Hi I just wanted to report that this last build as of March 29, 2019 is running very poorly on my Dell XPS. I almost cant use it. It also crashes about every 20 minutes.

    Mike W has a good point and I will keep this into consideration. But since it is a layout/publishing program - or am I wrong about that -How is one to do catalogs? For my purposes - I have to create labels or hand write addresses. Which means one more thing to purchase, layout/create and manually apply. I loved serif and have purchased the other two Affinity programs both for Windows and Mac. In fact that was the best thing about the Affinity software - they can be used on and the files edited on either OS - AND they are so affordable. I am still a fan and will hope for the best. I have completely switched from Quark Xpress (I have a high res. laptop and struggled to see the tools - so I am happy about that) and have rebuilt the files.
  3. Okay update to the above - I found the post by Harpenstreng and my issue as well was high def screen. Thank you Harpenstreng!!!
  4. I know I was not supposed to rely on Publisher for important files but I loved it so much and could use it on both my work mac and home pc that I did anyway. Now the new file for PC wont even load to install. I am freaking out - any hints of what I can do to get it? The last version will not work as it keeps telling me that that version testing is done and I have to get the new one. I don't want to go back to quark express please someone I use windows 10 and downloaded the latest - I have redownloaded and tried 4 times. I click on it to open the .exe file and it shows the publisher icon then immediately disappears. That is all.

  6. Thanks - I was confused because this is what the header says - It doesn't specify which one. I will go to the link... Affinity on Desktop Questions (Mac and Windows) Follow 142 If you have any questions about using Affinity Desktop Software - then post here.
  7. Is there a way to view all errors within a publication like finding where the overflow text is located? Or overlapping items?

    How to find overflow text in a story...

    Thank you Walt for the kind answer. I am obviously in the wrong place for this question. It is not a bug and I am aware of the red dot. I have used other software in the past that showed all the errors and located them for you. I had hoped that would be so in AFPub as well. I will go to the feature request for that.
  9. I would like to request that a calendar be included in Publisher for both PC and MAC.
  10. I cant get text to wrap around shape or image.
  11. I can't seem to get text to wrap around a shape or an image on wither Windows or Mac.
  12. The Text Ruler is activated but no longer appears on Mac.
  13. I sure hope there is a better way to set tab stops in Affinity Publisher than guessing the measurements? I cant get them to set that way either. I know this is beta but in that case use this as a need for future builds. Thanks

    Text Wrap Doesn't work

    I actually did that - Here are two images. Thanks
  17. LIFE SAVER!!! thanks - that fixed a lot of the wonkiness
  18. I have to import two pdf files every week for a bulletin. When I do the file in Publisher has been changed - I am guessing because the pdf has a different font than my system. I am able to do this in QuarkXPress, Corel Dray and Page Plus with out the distortion so I am not sure what I need to do in Publisher or if it will be something fixed in upcoming versions but wanted to report it. I have to convert the pdf to an image as a workaround but it does not print as nicely as the pdf. Thanks
  19. I have to import two pdf files every week for a bulletin. - I should mention that I also posted this in Windows bugs as I use both OS and it happens in both.

  20. YEP - I get the complexity and appreciate it. I have the work around so I can use that. To be quite honest even in this somewhat Raw stage it is so much nicer to use than QuarkXPress which is what I have to use since as it is the next affordable program for using on both PC and Mac. Not slamming QX it just thinks different than me.
  21. Also - do you know if there is a place to choose font substitutions? I went to font manager and there was no font listed that looks like the original "times" type font (serif) to choose to make a default choice. All the fonts listed were sans serif or funky ones I use for kids stuff. thanks
  22. I assume it will eventually - I was just reporting it as a bug. But if it will not that something to think about.

    Me too - I hope to switch from QuarkXpress (which is cumbersome for me) to this product because I can use in both PC and MAC which i am forced to switch back and forth. I LOVED PagePlus and hope for all the features +. I have to have merge and I don't mind having to change a CSV file to another extension like PagePlus - But i HAVE to be able to merge and not like QXPRESS with code.
  24. Awesome - I tried that at work (MAC) and it would never bring up the ruler. Here at home (PC) it is there. I am soooooooo excited. Thanks
