  1. I just tried that. No change. But, it really doesn't matter since it works correctly on the new computer. Thanks for your thoughts on the subject!
  2. The Mac I was unable to create a pdf on correctly is a MacBook Pro. I tried restarting in safe mode and then restarting again which is supposed to clear the font cache. I still had the same problem after doing so.
  3. Hello Gabe: I just upgraded my computer to the new MacBook Pro (using a complete backup of the old one) and it worked fine. I went back to my old MacBook Pro and it still didn't work. So, I'm guessing it wasn't a problem with Publisher, but with something specific to my old computer. Sorry about that! Sincerely, Peter
  4. Hello: I created a one page document with the Gill Sans font (Regular and Bold). When I exported the document as a pdf, there were several text sections that appeared incorrectly (CEO name in the middle and Office Director and Office Coordinator to the right). When I changed the font to Helvetica in those areas, and re-exported them, the fonts appeared correctly. When I exported the original document as a jpg, it appeared correctly. #1 Helvetica Version #2 Gill Sans Version #3 Gill Sans Version saved as jpg Thanks, Peter
  5. Hello MEB: Thank you for the explanation. I was incredibly confused as to why I couldn't access the same options with the arrow tool on two different jpgs. If I place an image versus creating a picture box first and inserting, what is the reason for having different options for the images? I may be wrong, but this is what I've found: Image 1 — When creating a picture box first and then inserting a photo, Properties becomes available, and you can resize and move the photo within the frame. Image 2 — If you drag a photo into the document or place it, you don't have access to Properties and can only resize the image proportionally and rotate it. Thanks, Peter
  6. Hello DWright: That must have been it. The embedded image was rgb and the document was cmyk. When I updated the document to RGB, it didn't crash when I tried to print. Still, I don't think this is the most graceful result from such a thing. :-) Thanks,
  7. Hello Sean: Understood. Is your software coded the same regardless of whether it is purchased directly from you or through the App Store? Thanks,
  8. Hello Sean: That could be it. I tried it on a more stripped down machine and didn't run into the same issues. It's an annoying issue as it makes me quit and reopen a number of times while working on a project. And, I don't recall it occurring with InDesign, Quark, or Illustrator. But, I'll try to narrow down the number of fonts I have open for the time being. Thanks,
  9. You're right. It works for me in the context toolbar too. Didn't think of checking that.
  10. Hello: I had AD open with no document, went to the desktop, option dragged to copy three files, then choose the three files, and chose Command Option to open them and got the error message. Thanks, IMG_2428.MOV
  11. Hello: This may be a bug or just an oversight. If there is type in a paragraph that is say, 34 pts. And, you replace a word with a different size type, say 14 pts, and you select all, typically you would expect to see nothing for the type size (because there are two different sizes selected), but AD displays 34 pts for all. Screenshot attached... Thanks,
  12. Hello: So, I duplicate some files in the finder and renamed them. If Affinity Designer is open and I double click on the duplicated files, I try to Command-O to open them, or I try through File/Open, I get the following error message "Failed to open file...This file could not be opened because permission was denied." If I quit AD and then try the same thing, they open fine. Thanks, Peter
  13. Hello: Designer keeps crashing when I try to print the attached file, even after a restart. I am able to create a pdf and print that, just can't print this file from Designer. I'm using Designer 1.7.2 and MacOS 10.14.6 on a MacBook Pro with 16 gb of memory. Other files print fine. Thanks, Peter USA T-Shirt.afdesign
  14. Pity on that. I think sizing should be included for those files. But, thanks for the answer. :-)
  15. Hello: Congratulations on the release of Publisher!!! I created several picture frames. One was for a photo and one was for an afdesign file. The photo shows the graphic specifications when selected, but the afdesign doesn't. Shouldn't it? Thanks, Peter
