    What happened to the import of styles?

    Right you are!
  2. 1.) I'm importing a Word document into APub, containing styles such as Normal, heading 1 and so on. 2.) In APub, all styles seem to have gone. However, the first field in Text Styles pane shows something like heading 1 + ... 3.) I'm choosing Delete all ununsed styles. 4.) The Text Styles pane only shows [No Style] [No Style]. Bottom line: formatting still is there, style names have gone

    What happened to the import of styles?

    No, don't blame Word. If I import the same Word docs into PagePlus, it works like a charme. Dominik, it definitely has to do with the name of the style: Normal (Standard). Because if I rename the style to jch_Standard, APub imports nicely. This very bug I had experienced with older versions of QuarkXPress, but never with InDesign. InDesigns Word import is and has always been just perfect.

    Good idea, this helped solving the problems with my short doc, completely. Thanks, Dominik! It didn't, however, solve the "Normal style disappears problem" in my long docs. In some of my docs, Normal style still turns into [No Style].

    FYI: In Publisher for Mac, the import is more reliable, but not 100 %.

    What happened to the import of styles?

    It is weird, in some instances, it works, in some, it doesn't. I've attached an image and the corresponding Word doc to show that it hasn't worked. (Next try worked, however. So it seems to be a game of hazard.) PublisherTestdoc.docx
  7. Importing a Word document into APub now seems to work quite nicely, even paragraph and character styles are preserved. Well done! However, Word's default paragraph style Normal becomes [No Style] which means: You can't edit it any more. It is lost! I ask you to kill this bug and maybe map Normal to, well, Normal. Thanks. Workaround: Name your body copy paragraphs differently, a workaround I'm using with QuarkXPress which also seems to have a Normal style importing weakness.

    Word's Normal style becomes [No style]

    Don't ask me, why, but out of a sudden it works fine (with some short documents). However, with one long document of mine, a novel, at least the Normal style stills turns into [No Style] again and this document you can get. However, I'd rather like to send the doc by mail. I'm not attaching it to my post. So, please send a PM, Jon.

    Situation hasn't changed in 399, sorry: At least not when importing .docx. RTF works fine (except Normal style).

    Word's Normal style becomes [No style]

    Sean, I've tried what you've said: still an issue In 399 In fact, styles disappear completely if I importing .docx. They do appear, if I import .rtf, except Normal, of course. Seems to be extremly difficult, QuarkXPress used to have the same problem long ago. So, at the moment, the workaround is: Import Word files in RTF only and rename Normal beforhand.

    Word's Normal style becomes [No style]

    This bug has not yet been fixes (build ... 384). But it is very important. Furthermore, the whole import of styles seems to malfunction. See my other post.
  12. Congratulations! Pre-order done for licence nr. 1, more orders to follow later on! I'll buy one for my Mac, too.
  13. I also do appreciate your hard work and I'm very impressed with the progress your are making. You are really listening to us, the users and customers. Thank you!
  14. When I started learning PagePlus a few years ago, I found one feature extremly helpful: being able to adjust and save your workspace! You even threw in some predefined workspaces such as: Standard Designer Classic DTP (perfect!) ... Well done, very nice! Adobe has it, too, even QuarkXPress allows you to somehow save your workspace even though it is much more cumbersome (as most things in QXP). When Photo and Designer came out, I was looking all over the place and couldn't find such a feature. I couldn't believe that there was no "custom workspace" available and I'm still thinking: There must be such a hidden gem but I haven't discovered it, yet. Where is it? Do you offer such a feature in Publisher? And if not, why? It can't be the coding, I doubt that a feature like this is so difficult to implement! After all, you are saving one workspace, already - the current one.
  15. At first, thank you very much for your enourmous effort and zeal to bring us such a beautiful piece of software! It is a pleasure to test Affinity Publisher! I DO have a features request. I wish there would be a presentation mode in Publisher like in ID. In ID 've created a custom shortcut for this mode: Pause. So, after having typeset a few pages of my book, I make a "pause" hitting this key. ID instantaneously switches to fullscreen mode, hiding all rulers, guides, hidden characters and so on. The background turns black. So, I can go through the pages without disctraction. If I'm ready marvelling at my work, I hit "Esc" and continue typesetting. Okay, in Publisher you can do: Ctrl + Shift + W and Tab and Ctrl + 0 and you can (manually) turn a window into fullscreen mode, which leads to almost the same result. (And you can still edit the spread! Very good!) but I'm looking for a "all-in-one solution", a kind of "combined super shortcut". :-) I'm using this feature all the type. Besides, QuarkXPress (for Windows, not for Mac OS) does not even allow you to turn a document window into fullscreen mode, so QuarkXPress for Windows, in my view, is much more difficult to work with. Thanks!
  16. I Agree! I'm used to it and I really like the way InDesign does it. QXP, however, hides those settings and makes the bleed setup very difficult.
  17. You mean a library, That would be a great thing. I'm using InDesign's library function all the time, it is a real time saver. And exporting/importing page layouts would be nice, too. Maybe, it is somehow possible, already?
  18. Yes, please. GREP. Even Word has had a search with regular expression it for almost decades, even PagePlus has it.
  19. Thumbs up. You are quick! Thank you!
  20. PagePlus used to have a QR code tool, I was hoping Publisher would add an EAN tool?
  21. Because there is no Word import, I've just copy/pasted my book from Word into a text frame and autoflowed the stuff. This works pretty well. Chapeaux! Even some of the styles were preserved (however, renamend). So I do have: heading 1 Quote Unfortunately, my "Normal/Standard" body copy paragraph style went lost, it now is "No Style". How can I select all "No style paragraphs" and apply Normal (or another body copy style)? The problem seems to have to do with the "Normal" style of Word. If I use individual styles, the names are preserved.
  22. Hi, I've noticed that you can use long names for your master pages, very nice! But how can you tell which master page belongs to which spread? In PP there is a button to reveal that information. Maybe, in Publisher, this button is still missing. It's akward if you have a long book and don't see which master pages belong to which spread. Thanks.
