  1. I haven't been trying to create anything to involved, just learning the program. So in this case, all I was attempting to do is discard the frame, leaving the picture in tact. Essentially returning to the original state before converting to a picture frame.
  2. Mac Publisher beta #292 I've been exploring Publishers handling of images. I created a test page, added an image and selected Convert to Picture Frame. This worked as expected. I decide I no longer wanted the picture frame so went back to the contextual menu to look for a "Remove Picture Frame" option, which does not appear to be an option. So out of curiosity I selected Convert to Text Frame, which crashes Publisher every time. My questions: Does an option to "Remove Picture Fame" make sense? And shouldn't "Convert to Text Frame" be grayed out? Is there ever a time when a Picture Frame would be converted to a Text Frame? Just being curious. Convert to Picture Frame.mp4
  3. Uncheck the layer marked "FreeVector-Tank-Front-View" and then export. See what happens.
  4. On a Mac, it's Command and Page up only if you have an extended keyboard. For those without an extended keyboard the keys are fn+Command+ up or down arrow.
  5. I have encounter a similar issue. Text Frame Ghost.mp4
  6. The screenshot below shows the default page navigation settings for Affinity Publisher on the Mac, the Command key plus the up and down arrows. Unfortunately the Command and Arrow keys in combination do not work on a laptop. However, using fn and Command in combination with the arrow keys will invoke page to page navigation.

    Text Wrap Issue

    I've been playing with Text Wrap for awhile and here's what I've encountered on my Mac running Publisher beta 249. I can get the margin sizes to do absolutely nothing, as mentioned by RenWaller, and I can get them to move away from an image as one would expect (mostly). It appears to me that Affinity has an odd implementation of selection buttons on some dialogue boxes. When I click on a selection box in Text Wrap a highlight border in that box turns blue. Oddly, if I click on another selection box it turns blue as well. It appears to me that the selection options are working more like check boxes (multiple items can be selected ) and not like a radio button (one and only one option is selected) as I would expect to happen. So, to get the boxes to work for me, I check then uncheck the various Text Wrap options until I think everything is clear, and then select the options that I want. This has worked so far. Obviously not a long term solution : ) Affinity_Text_Wrap.mp4
  8. I tried this on a Mac laptop and it works as expected. However the first time I tried find, I couldn't find the find dialogue box. Turns out it was hiding on the left side panel with Pages and Assets. So I would also recommend going to the View menu, slide down to Studio and then slide over and down to Reset Studio and give it one more try.
  9. If you have a Mac laptop, try using the fn key and the Command key in combination, then hitting the up and down arrows. This should scroll from page to page, or if there are facing pages, from spread to spread.
  10. Open the file and go to the layers menu. Check to see if anywhere inside layers is a "Master A" layer. I've noticed that a Master A is created as a layer in new files. If you find a Master A layer, delete that layer. Save the file and try the steps again, select all, copy and paste and see what happens. I'm wondering if a Master layer in a selected group might somehow conflict when pasting back into itself.
  11. I was just trying to identify the location of the settings mentioned by fde101 above. Sorry if I created any confusion.
  12. For anyone else who struggled to find the correct location for these settings : )
  13. In a default Mac selection box, when the user clicks into a cell to insert the typing cursor, the frame around the cell turns blue making that cell active (see attachment). Now hitting the return key activates the default behavior, in this case closing the dialogue box. In Affinity's software, when a cursor is inserted into a cell, that cell does not turn blue, but after the first return the cell turns blue, becomes active, and then the second return triggers the default behavior of that dialogue box. It appears that all 3 Affinity products behave in the same manner. Is this a design choice?
