    Reset Rotation

    I have exactly the same problem, though in my case I accidentally rotated the document. Tried reversing through History and repeated cmd-Zs but I cannot get back to 0 degrees rotation.
  3. Yes thanks, Dave, think you're right. I guess the default is not terribly logical as I don't think many editors would consider italics as their first-stop choice of typographical Emphasis. Plus, as perhaps shown by this discussion, it's quite fiddly here in AffPubl to a) find where to make this change and b) be bothered to mess around with it, anyway. For all the promise I feel AffPubl has, in some parts it's rather like my present VW: over-engineered, or solutions looking for problems.
  4. Apparent bug(s) in Paragraph>Initial Words control panel. 1. Select Enabled. Set Max word count. Select Emphasis – italic is displayed 2. Select Enabled. Set Max word count. Select Strong Emphasis – bold italic is displayed Possible culprit/solution: In the Text Styles control panel, Emphasis and Strong Emphasis items are captioned in italics (plain and bold respectively).
  5. Suggest better/more intuitive layout of Margin controls and Text Wrap controls if the Top, Bottom, Left, Right fields are placed visually in their logical positions, eg Top at top, Bottom underneath (rather than as now in two columns.......eek! which/where do I look for rapid adjustment). Even the old Quark XP single-column layout of these fields (Top, Bottom, Left, Right) is better than two columns. Small, but important, for those habitually using these controls.
  6. okay - found (in Export>PDF>More).....thanks Jens
  7. Crop (printer's trim) marks are very important for me, especially at final output to PDF. Soon please!
  8. Suggest very early fix for this persistent bug: slider controls in User Interface preferences (eg for selecting no of dec places) persist on screen even after Prefs window is closed. They even persist at top layer on screen above other application windows. Am attaching screenshot of Publisher sliders visually interfering with this Safari window.
  9. The black and nearly black backgrounds of Affinity Photo windows, toolbars and palettes entirely distract me and I'm sure Serif knows that reading white type reversed out of black background is a strain. How do I change the UI preferences to display white or light backgrounds?
