  1. When I wanted to export a publisher document as pdf, I got a slightly vague error message, there would be overflow text in "at least one of the testframes". It took me a while to find this frame. Is there a panel that lists all errors ... and where they hide? Something like Adobes preflight option? That would make locating the errors much easier. Thanks again Georg
  2. Hi, I couldn't find an option to use a custom image (or several different ones) in a list in publisher In my particular case, it would be a list where the bullet shows the type of item. I just found the predefined shapes for bullet lists. Thanks for the help. Georg

    Justification in Publisher

    Uh ... right. Okay I might go putting on this hat from Mike's avatar. I still feel, that this way it very likely leads to a horrible look. There should at least be an option to choose, like there is with the last line, that can also be stretched into uglyness.

    The image shows IDs behavior in this matter. Why not doing it the old fashioned way? Because we live in modern times and I want computers to help me in my work, not making it inconvenient.

    justified print

    Hi, I have an issue with the justified print in Publisher. Unlike the last line of a paragraph, lines with a soft break will be stretched across the whole width of the paragraph. Since this quite frequently leads to very ugly lines, I cannot imagine this is intended. (I also tried the same in InDesign, where the line breaks work just fine.) (Made a mistake there, ID does the same) Even if you do not consider this a bug, there should at least be the choice to set the line right. Thanks, Georg

    Justification in Publisher

    Thanks for all your help. The <tab>-maneuver sounds okay, maybe I can "find-and-replace" this into the document. I cannot agree with Joachims opinion Publishers behavior is normal in other (professional) software. This would quite frequently lead to ugly lines, just like in my case. (Just tried the same in InDesign. There it works as I feel it should be.) There should be at least a checkbox: "awful linereaks on/off" Thanks again
  7. I have an issue with the justified print. I want some space after a paragraph but I also use line breaks. Same paragraph, therefore no spacing. In justified print the lines with breaks are stretched. I attached a particularly ugly example. Where can I set this right. I want line breaks to be just like paragraph ends, but without the spacing. (Please don't tell me to fix this manually.) Thanks, Georg

    Text transformation

    Thanks for the quick reply. If affinity photo provides the option, I'll add it from there.
  9. Hi, I'm looking for a way of transforming text, to create the impression it's printed on a flat surface in a 3D space. Puuh, what a strange description ... somewhat like the example attached. It feels to be a likely option for Designer, yet I cannot find the appropriate tools. (Preferably the text stays editable.) Thanks for your help In my particular case, I do not need the depth of the space. (I'd manually decrease the fond size, If neccesary). On the other hand my text is not that symmetrical/centered but "floats" from different angels.)

    Symbols panel vanished

    Thanks for all the help and you surely shouldn‘t apologioze for helping me. Actually I also feel that symbols are a very Designer‘ish functionality and belong there. So far I understood assets as a comfortable way of the „copy-paste“-maneuver. (More like copy-paste-paste-paste-paste-paste...) Do assets also update their instances like symbols do? I‘ll take a closer look into the suggested solutions. Thank you all for your help.

    Symbols panel vanished

    That‘s a pity. Especially as I used it extensively. I shouldn‘t have closed the panel ... I once had thge impression that it seemed possible to apply masterpages on other masterpages. That could do the trick. In my case all the master pages have a logo. Next to the actual icon, it also includes some text and its position varies. Symbols were perfect for that. Has anyone an idea for an elegant solution?

    Symbols panel vanished

    Sadly that's not the issue. Checked the separated view, then unchecked again ... just to see if this works as a reset. Didn't change anything. Maybe I'm just missing the symbols-panel? The reset studio option didn't help either.
  13. I just now released and (accidentally) closed the symbols panel. Now it also vanished from the view>studio menu. existing symbols are still labelled symbols, but i cannot place new instances or create new symbols anymore. Made the latest update before.

    Layer Masks

    Hi again, I‘m searching for an option to mask (vector) layers. Again I hope I just didn‘t find it. (Also haven‘t seen anything about masking layers in the tutorials.) Thanks Georg

    Global Colors

    Hi, is there an option to set global colors on the iPad? I use this option extensively in the desktop version. I really miss this on the iPad ... and hope I just didn‘t find it yet. Thanks, Georg
