  1. This is one that not everyone suffers from then. I will have to see if it s the same on my MacBook Pro.
  2. Have you tried the Test document I attached to my first post to see if you can replicate the problem?
  3. Answers Question 1: Upon brief testing it appears not to happen in documents newly created in Beta 257 when I start completely from scratch. But if I create a new document but then copy and paste text boxes from a document created in a previous beta it still happens but only with those text boxes. It does not happen with a new text box. Question 2: If I open a document created in a previous beta it happens all the time. If I create a new document then it appears not to happen. I hadn't noticed it not happening in newly created documents because I actually hadn't created a totally new document since Beta 257 was released. I had been using a 'template' I use for the jobs I was doing in Publisher. I am using Beta 257 on an iMac running macOS 10.13.6 as well.
  4. I'm getting the same 'select one text box but another gets selected' issue since the latest build was installed. Seems to happen with the Frame Text Tool selected. Test.afpub
  5. Yep they will be CMYK, which is ok for the majority of my work but sometimes I need the ability to use Pantone spot colours which is another reason why I asked the question.
  6. Those are created in Illustrator but I also use JPEGs hence my original question. I will try the copy and paste method to see how it works.
  7. @walt.farrell I own both applications. I’m thinking that it may be far easier to do this when the Photo and Designer personas are available. It still won’t be as easy as it should be though. I do wonder if I will end up with multiple colour versions of the same file though. Saving as a greyscake JPEG and colouring within InDesign stops such a scenario.
  8. Thanks, that works for me. It's still a lot more work than InDesign but at least I can do what I want without having to resort to using another application.
  9. @Wosven I saw that before posting but you have to use Photo to do it. I want to know how to do this solely in Publisher - just like you can in InDesign. I have tried to use that method and can't get it to work for me. It seems a very long-winded way of doing something which is so easily done in InDesign.
  10. @dominik Thanks for the reply but that isn't what I am asking. All my documents are set up to be CMYK. I want to know how to apply a colour to a greyscale JPEG on an object by object basis.
  11. How do I add colour to a greyscale JPEG in Publisher? In InDesign, you can do it really easily by using the Direct Selection Tool and then choosing a colour. I cannot see any way of doing the same thing within Publisher. For the screenshot, the red set of ornaments were coloured in Illustrator so you could see what I want to do.
  12. It's working properly for me in all the Effects panel. Wonder why it's not for you?
  13. This issues appears fixed for me in the Colour panel after updating to version Hope it's the same for everyone else.
  14. I have images set to be linked rather than embedded but when images have been placed, I am seeing 'embedded' in the Layers panel but 'linked' in Resource Manager. This doesn't happen all the time though. Has anyone else seen this? Is this a known bug?
  15. That's what I'm hoping but with 7 years of freelance work archived it may not be that easy.
