  1. I have a two page document and scrolling on the last page seems to be inhibited, no matter whether by mouse wheel or scrollbar. Preview mode is on. If it is off, scrolling works. I'm using 1.8 on Windows 10.
  2. For me, simple letters like in PagePlus, InDesign or QuarkXPress just do. Letters that can be switched on and off. But I need it, urgently.
  3. I'm attaching a document with a single image. It does not disappear but somehow jumps out of the frame when I try to convert that image into an image frame. I'm also ready to provide a document with images that disappear completely if you would kindly provide a link. Thanks. ImageBehavesStrangelyWhenTurnedIntoImageFrame.afpub
  4. In this case, I can't. It's client's work and my valued customer would not be amused to see their content in this board. I'm not even allowed to share this convent, even if I would upload it directly to your server, I'm sorry. (It was a long document with many images. Just my daily work.) However, If I import Word documents with linked images, the images don't show, anyway. The attached files may serve as an example: Word file with LINKED image and Publisher file with imported Word file. SerifsVision.afpub SerifsVision_2.docx Note: I've been working for many publishing houses for more than 20 years. We've always accepted manuscripts with linked images, only. This was the case 25 years ago and it still hasn't changed. Yet, selfpublishers or very small publishers, who are less experienced, mainly embed their images which often impairs the image quality. (If not customized otherwise, Word compresses the image and reduces the resolution to 220 dpi.) So, as a professional tool, Publisher should support linked images in Word because linking images it the professional way.
  5. To link images is the gold standard, not just in Publisher and InDesign, but also in Word. I tell my customers to always link their images to the Word file, not to embed them. Linked images don't loose quality, this technique helps keeping the file size of the Word file (ID, Pub) small. However, when I try to import a Word document with linked images into Publisher ... Publisher freezes. and older versions. Win 10.
  6. I'm importing a Word file into Publisher with embedded images. I'm changing the number of columns. The images go wild, get distorted. The same happens if a draw another text frame (1 column) and thread the text into that frame. Applies to, not to earlier versions, Win 10
  7. I import a Word document into Publisher. This Word file has embedded images. The import works will, the images show. I try to convert those images into picture frames. The images disappear. Do you need a sample file? Applies to and earlier, Win 10
  8. Definitely, but in Germany/Austria the opening one looks like this: » and this one « ist the closing guillement. In Switzerland they use it like in France, but with no spaces. Makes translation more complicated.
  9. Yes, this seems to be quite obvious.It's exactly the way I interpret the commands for double and single left/right quote. The left opening one is named first, the closing one after it. Maybe, but I would never think of it. So, I guess, it is pretty misleading. Well, this exactly what I criticize: the auto-correct setting should not give us a poor choice but allow us to choose the best kind of quotes. I'm a typesetter, in 9 out of 10 cases we choose »this kind of quotes«.
  10. But is is not a clever setting, limiting the type of quotes to the boring German ones, Pauls! In books we prefer »quotes like this«, similar to the ones used in France or Switzerland, but exactly the other way round and without spaces! So, you should review your quote management in Publisher! It is incomplete and partly wrong. See my image. My two cents: Do it as you have done in PagePlus, allow the users so choose their individual type of quotes. Some other DTP apps grant you the same choice, for instance InDesign and QuarkXPress. There is only one ignorant word processor that does not care about German preferences at all: Word. Other word processing apps do!
  11. Hi Sean, hi Lagarto, I've created many test documents both on APub Win (481, 502) and Mac (just 1.7.3) and tried to repeat the situation. However, In all three programmes, I'm was not able to convert a RGB document to CMYK, at all. I'm very sorry. Both buttons, Assign and Convert, are inactive. They sames holds true if I try to convert a CMYK document into RGB. Assign and Convert don't work, as well. Strange. So, you are not supposed to convert RGB into CMYK and vice versa?! I can't figure out what I did differently, in the first place. Starting off with a RGB document, text colour is always rich black, not 100K black. CMYK documents, however, provide the right black value: 100K. Anyway, I think there should be a mechanism making sure that black text always stays/gets 100K black when converted into a CMYK PDF. You shouldn't be forced to check before printing, whether it is rich black or 100K.
  12. Oh, sorry, I got mixed up. Thanks, anyway. But I think, I AM in the publisher beta forum?! At least, this is what the breadcrumb navigation says: Home Beta Software Forums Affinity Publisher Beta Forums Publisher beta on Windows Margin values get mixed up
