    Jon P got a reaction from sfillibeck in PAGE NUMBERS   
    Hi Pascho,
    If I understand correctly, you just want to set your second section to restart page numbering at 1, and then have all subsequent sections continue from that point, similar to attached?
    Thanks

    Hi Jeremy,
    We are aware of this affecting our mac apps, it's logged with us and will hopefully be resolved in the future.
    Thanks

    Hi Jon P
    Thanks to the example that you included in your response, I saw the section that I had overlooked and turned out to be the missing link. After correction, the numbering is as it should be. Thanks for this eye opener.

    As Alfred and Walt have stated, it is a bug in the documentation and should be the shift key.

    Jon P reacted to AdamW in Inserting Pages with Masters Applied   
    Hi TooOldForThis,
    Thanks for your post. We're aware that the way masters are currently managed when adding and inserting single pages in facing page documents isn't ideal for every scenario. We're investigating possibilities, probably to offer user options, as to how masters should be re-assigned (or not) in theses cases.

    Arrowheads!
    We have Arrowheads for Line Styles from Designer. The best place to report any issues is probably the Designer Beta Forum.
    Assets
    We have removed the placeholder Assets from Publisher. Publisher will release with an empty Asset Panel.
    .NET 4.7.2 (Windows)
    Due to a compiler update we now have a dependency on .NET 4.7.2. The installer has been updated to install this version of the framework.
    This means that the system requirements have changed slightly and we will no longer install on Windows 8.0 (!) or early unpatched versions (< 1607) of Windows 10.
    Other Improvements and Fixes
    Main Frame UI
    No more duplicate empty panels (!)
    Option for large thumbnails in Layers Panel. Layer colour tagging added

    Fixed scroll into view in Pages panel
    Fixed crash when pasting a Master into itself
    Fixed crash moving items in Z-order having done detached edits
    Text
    Fixed application of Text Wrap borders (!)
    Placing text with a frame selected now populates the frame and replaces the current content
    Fix for positioning of path text
    Formatting a specific text selection no longer updates text defaults. Formatting at the insertion point still does
    Text tool selection improvements. <Alt>-<Click> forces select in front / behind
    Long / nested style names in the Text Style panel are now displayed with elllipsis if necessary rather than shrinking
    Fixed crash reading text attributes near Drop Caps
    Fix for Character Variants for some fonts failing to show up in Typography panel
    Fix for erroneous spell check warnings when languages switch within text
    Paragraph Leading control not using localised decimal separator

    Tables 
    <Ctrl>-A / <Cmd>-A now selects all text in a cell rather than all cells in text context

    Jon P got a reaction from Patrick Connor in crash by editing   
    Hi @arou84
    A fixed version of your file can be found here
    It encountered a bug which can leave a file in a "corrupt" state. Our developers have fixed the file but unfortunately there is still a recipe to get a file into this state that we are investigating.
    Any information you can provide me on what steps you were taking before the file started showing this behaviour (or if you have an older version of the file without this issue) would be useful to help me pin it down.
    Thanks

    Jon P got a reaction from libfree in 1.7.0.249 does not work on Windows 7 sp1 64-bit   
    Thanks libfree that was very useful,
    Your .NET Framework is quite out of date which will be the cause of the crash. If you install this net framework it should resolve your issue.
    I have noticed some behaviour with our installer that i'm investigating from this, I'm not sure how you are on such a low framework when our installer installs a later version by default, so am investigating this.

    Jon P got a reaction from Patrick Connor in 1.7.0.249 does not work on Windows 7 sp1 64-bit   
    Hi Keith/libfree,
    It's a shame it seems to be falling over before we are even generating the crash dumps.
    I do agree with the suggestions here that this could very well be font related, we do blacklist a font if it fails to load to prevent this but it could be encountering multiple bad fonts, or there could be another issue here.
    At the moment we are a little limited in ways to investigate this, can I ask if either of you are familiar with Windows Event Viewer if you can look in application logs and see if there are any errors in there? Asides from that potentially backing up fonts and clearing them out to test this would be useful, but I appreciate that's quite a bit to ask.
    I'll update this if I get any further information on ways to investigate the exact cause of this.

    Hi William,
    That lines up with what we have investigated so far, there is a recipe somewhere here for a file getting in this state that we are still investigating.
    Anyway, the fixed file is here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/4o5v2yw72g2xcyo/Prospectus_Final_Rough_Draft - Fixed.afpub?dl=0

    Just opened that file and scrolled up/down and reproduced the crash.
    I'll look into this a bit more and get it logged, thanks for the updated file.

    Jon P got a reaction from williamlzhao in Publisher Beta 1.7.0.238 Crashes from Scrolling on Document   
    Hi william,
    I've loaded the document here and scrolled through it without it crashing. I might be struggling to reproduce it since some of the resources are linked, so if possible can you embed all the links and re-attach it?
    We do have an issue logged with quite resource heavy documents sometimes crashing when scrolled and this could be another variation of that, but it doesn't look as resource heavy as the other documents I reproduced that issue with.
    Are you also able to attach any publisher crash reports here (~/Library/Logs/DiagnosticReports)?
    Thanks

    Jon P got a reaction from Tom Schülke in Footage not showing up in Ressource collector.   
    I should have been clearer but that was what I meant by the term "detached", by placing a picture in a frame that comes from a master page it essentially "detaches" the frame from the master. It continues to inherit the width/height/position of the frame from the master but the content is "detached".

    Jon P got a reaction from Steps in Linked resource changed popups round   
    A crash even if not a regular use case should never really exist, as much fun as it is to look for them in QA.
    When looking into this I did update 100+ images at once in a batch command and the app didn't crash, it just had around 200 pop ups to get through due to the above bug.
    I'll have another go at changing metadata like you did and see if I can get it to crash.

    Jon P got a reaction from Wosven in Linked resource changed popups round   
    Hi Wosven,
    The first bug you encountered with the images being negative when linked will be the same as them appearing on negative on export. This is logged with us (as well as the encoding issues on some of the example PDFs you have supplied).
    The application was right to inform you the images had been modified, and we do currently have a bug logged where our popups are being duplicated which you have encountered here.
    The rest of the suggestions are improvements which I can pass on. I also think we should maybe handle having so many pop ups queued a bit better.
    Thanks

    Jon P got a reaction from Steps in Crash when scrolling   
    Hi,
    Thanks all of you for getting all the files and crash dumps to me.
    I've finally managed to fairly constantly reproduce this problem with @Christian Luidolts file. I'm still trying with some of the others (I've seen it once with a couple of the other files but struggle to constantly reproduce it)
    As discussed here, the common theme seems to just be the issue on very large, image heavy documents. I'm logging an issue and attaching the provided crash dumps/files for the developers to continue to investigate.
    Thanks again for providing the files and crash dumps.
