  1. This isn't a bug in the sense of a crash or anything, but perhaps an issue with how hyphenation works. If I have something like this alligators—they and it happens to fall where Publisher thinks it should hyphenate, it does this, breaking it at the em dash. alligators- —they Publisher is inserting the hyphen, not me. It adds a hyphen before the em dash which seems incorrect.Should it just treat an em dash as a space?
  2. Anyone know how other programs, such as Quark or InDesign handle the insertion of a page in the middle of other content? I think both use separate chapter files for longer documents, so insertions aren't such a huge deal since you only worry about the pages within a single chapter.
  3. I think it did reverse the margins correctly, but my master page layouts, based on the margins were off kilter since the content was no longer on the same left/right page. Not sure what the solution is for that because when you reapply a master, it erases all the content.
  4. I'm encountering this same issue when I need to insert a page between existing pages. Then I need to adjust master page assignments to get the layout correct on facing pages - but doing that deletes content. I thought maybe I was doing something wrong or missing the technique for doing this. I guess for now I need to make sure I get it correct as I build the document! This project will be about 150 pages, so adjusting for an insertion in the middle is not fun!
  5. I'd love to see an affiliate option as well. I'd love to promote the products - and make a little while I'm at it. Although, here we call it an affiliate "program" rather than "scheme." Scheme seems to have a negative, shady connotation.
  6. How can I exclude the em dash as an acceptable character to include in hyphenation in Publisher? For example, if I had a sentence like this. Crocodiles, alligators—they both look the same to me It seems to assume "alligators—they" is all one word. I've had it insert a hyphenation dash right before the em dash, which looks rather ugly.
  7. Thanks everyone. I'll add it in the bug section.
  8. Okay, maybe I didn't explain it well enough. If I have something like this alligators—they and it happens to fall where Publisher thinks it should hyphenate, it does this, breaking it at the em dash. alligators- —they Publisher is inserting the hyphen, not me. It adds a hyphen before the em dash. I've always inserted em dashes without spaces before or after. Perhaps you can use spaces on either side of an em dash?
  9. This may have come up before. I did a search and didn't see anything though. I understand some may think a save icon/button isn't essential, but for those of us who like it, it would be nice to have it as an optional icon to add to the toolbar below the menu. I'm working in Publisher right now, but I'd love to see it in all 3 apps.
  10. Hmm, yeah, that icon ought to do the job.
  11. Love this new capability.
  12. I have a degree in computer science, programmer, web developer, and author. Yeah, I actually know about Ctrl. S. Have you ever seen a Safetype keyboard? Yep, Ctrl S is more challenging, especially when I'm doing something that uses a lot of mouse actions. I have a toolbar with icons, lots of blank space up there, and it's already customizable. A Save button would be greatly appreciated, and for those who prefer Ctrl S, they don't have to add it to their toolbar.

    UI Scale Option

    I'll second that.
  14. This thread seems to have devolved into crop wars. I think many people have moved/will move away from photoshop to AP because of the pricing, not necessarily because they weren't pleased with the PS interface or functionality. And, it's understandable that AP doesn't have all the same features - yet - because it's a much younger product. But, isn't it fine to critique and offer suggestions for improvement??
  15. I think the difference may be with people who are accustomed to doing it all in one operation. If you've never done it that way, it won't bother you to do it the current AP way. If you've done it the photoshop way, it does seem like a big deal. It's one of the few things that keeps me from solely using AP. As a web designer, I crop/resize photos a lot. As I said, Affinity's plan to provide both ways of using the crop tool will make everyone happy.
  16. Same here. I'm hoping AP is ready before my old photoshop stops working. I've only had software do that due to Windows version changes - which seem to be forced, rather than elective now.
  17. I don't. Crop/resize with the crop tool in pshop, then Save for Web (old CS5 version of pshop). It's a useful feature and affinity says they're adding it. I assume they'll keep the current operations as well, so if you prefer doing it that way, we'll all be happy.
  18. Thanks for the info, but that's still more work than the resize operation being incorporated into the crop -all in one step.
  19. Another vote for this. Currently I pull up an old version of photoshop if I need to crop/resize. Once you get used to doing it in one step, it's very hard to revert to the 2-step process, especially if you have multiple images.
  20. I cannot get the Paragraph or Character panels to appear. I assume there are supposed to be panels for those options? With the text tool active, i see Character and Paragraph buttons, but when I click them, nothing happens. If I click the Text menu - Show Character or Show Paragraph - nothing happens for either one. Text/Show Typography does pop up a panel though. From the View menu - Studio - Character and Paragraph are both checked, but they do not appear in any of the areas where the other panels are shown. I'm just starting with Affinity Photo, so there could be something I'm missing, but everything else has worked as I expected - a refugee from Photoshop. :) Version is OS is Windows 10
  21. I tried closing all the panels, still didn't work. Uninstalled/reinstalled & they're there! Yay!! :)
  22. My monitor resolution is 1920 x 1080, which is the recommended. I maximize, minimize, resize Affinity Photo, still no char/paragraph panels. Here's a brief screencast showing me clicking the buttons and menu options. I've tried it with selecting the text layer, text tool, highlighting text in the text object. I'm not sure what you have to do since I've never gotten them to appear. http://www.vickiwatson.com/temp/affinity-photo.mp4
  23. Anyone have a clue on this? Would definitely be helpful to have those panels. :( I'll try attaching the screen capture again. It didn't post the last time.
  24. I did the Ctrl thing, but still no panels. Screenshot attached. :(
