  1. Hi stokerg, thanks for your answers. 1. live filter pdf export: I didn't (and didn't find it) that this is already a known issue. The only workaround at the moment seems to be putting all layers together in a top layer in photo. Rasterizing the .pdf doesn't help here. 2. export fills to .pdf - attached please find a simple pub file. page 1 contains a rectangle and a curve with a gradient fill (bitmap) page 2 contains a rectangle and a curve with a style fill page 3 contains 2 rectangles converted to curves, 1 with a bitmap, 1 with a style fill Please .pdf export the pages with rasterize everything: all correct Please .pdf export the pages without rasterize everything (e.g. format print): the behaviour is a bit strange: - within own made curves the complete (multiplicated) content is there - within e.g. rectangles the content is reduced to one element (no multiplication any longer) - within rectangles converted to curves the content is still reduced to one element (no multiplication any longer) thanks for looking into it ... fills.afpub
  2. Designer, Publisher, any version incl. newest beta / WIN Hi, 1. when using a bitmap as a gradient (fill), or a style (e.g. a pattern) to fill an object: If the content which will be filled is smaller than the object itself, the content will be duplicated as often as it is needed. Looks good in afpub, afdesign etc. Looks good too (and as it should) in an exported .jpg ... but not in an exported .pdf (s. two sample in the pic below, a) a gradient fill (bitmap), b) a style fill 2. Same happens with live effects applied on any photo (regardless if it is a file layer or a pixel layer)... jpg ok, pdf doesn't recognize the effects (e.g. lightning effects). What to do?
  3. Hi again, beta 499 & 502 (ghost frames only appeared in 502) I can't really split the behaviour descripted below in different issues - I guess you need the files and look into it .. if ... But before I have to say, this is a test on one brochure, but I experienced it on several different documents already. Here I made a 28 page A4 brochure with 43 afphoto files (placed and linked), originally created with pub 1.7.3 production version. Next I opened that in 499 and saved it - using the first time the resource managers collect function now, next saved in 502. To be very sure, that no side problems appear, I kicked off the logos from that document (afdesign files), so only afphoto's are placed. And I renewed ALL afphoto files into clear 1.7.3 production version afphoto files. If you say, that it's not ok to work with a publisher file derived originally out of a 1.7.3 pub file, than we should stop here and I have to make a new brochure from scratch with V 502, to be sure what's going on. Otherwise: 1. As all afphotos were renewed I had to reorganize them a bit (problem on 502: many pictures snap into 25% size first and on this file: anytime you re-open that file, so pinned photos maybe have moved. 2. For a while I could work, scroll pages, reposition picture etc., as suddenly Publisher get stuck. Next time it works a while until it happens again. Very randomly. In some cases, resource manager etc.could be opened, but pages could not be selected any longer or page scrolls could not be done. In one in case, I clicked on Master Page and Publisher vanished immediatly. 3. I have noticed this behaviour many times before (on several documents), and so far I remember, such problems do not appear if all placed images are tiffs instead of afphotos or afdesigns!! 4. You can see on the picture below, that on page 16 (left side) the last sentence was originally on page 17 (first line) and the picture on the upper right (you see a part) was originally pinned to this sentence. Due to the renewing process it moved. So I shortened the text frame down on page 16 and the text and the pinned picture were gone. I found them again by enlarging the frame again, unpinned the image and reduced the frame on page 16 again. Suddenly this ghost frame appeared instead, but not the text. The ghost is totally untouchable. I clicked on the triangle on page 16 and made a new frame, now the text appeared again (as you can see on the picture), but he ghost insists to stay. 5. On page 27 there is text frame (as it should be) but the content is missing. If I click on that frame and move it, a number of line appears, indicating that there is something, but it stays invisible !? Forget his point 5, its maybe only because pages have been moved, I can't go on to that now w/o problems.) If you think it's worth looking into it, I can upload the whole stuff (278 MB!) including a correct printed .pdf (from the original 1.7.3 version) as a reference.
  4. Hi, V 502 (see pics below): a) Create a new file b) place some images (afphoto, bmp, tiff, jpg ...) onto the page c) Resource manager: "collect" to a new sub-directory d) close publisher file and re-open it e) On a number of pictures (no idea which one and why) only the left upper part of them is displayed (see left picture, while right picture kept in size, in that case they are both 1.7. afphoto-files, but I got this phenomena on tiffs as well.) f) You have to click on the picture once, than the picture will expand again (second image below) g) I experienced both: all pictures staying afterwards in correct size - or (this happened once): each time I opened the file again, another click on that frames were necessary.
  5. Hi Patrick, you people are very fast .. e.g. I was expecting IDML import (if ever happened) in 1 year or later! :) I tried it on a rather complicated book chapters (not in detail), even complex made (smaller) tables are flawless there! Thanks for that (and more ...) 1. Just to mention: regarding this " shutterstock_416026081..." file (s. above), publisher 502 (as well as designer) still have the problem, it's loading but do not find an end 2. The saving problem of publisher with afdesign file seems to be solved. I found one brochure file, where a logo (afdesign) did not appear any longer in the publisher pages (completly gone), but later I saw, that this logo had some (jumpo ratio when scaling it) problems from the beginning. So I made it new with 1.7. designer, and now the problem didn't appear again. 3. At the moment I'm still struggling with a lot of crashes on publisher 502 (opening brochures which made with previous beta, containing only placed afphoto files, the problem was there on the previous beta, but i thought its only because of the afdesign problem, so I kicked the afdesign files all out now, but still many crashes happen). It could be a home-made problem as well. So I need some time to get clearer about the possible cause. 4. Nevertheless, here is a little repeatable thing on V 502 (see pics below): a) Create a new file b) place some images (afphoto, bmp, tiff, jpg ...) onto the page c) Resource manager: "collect" to a new sub-directory d) close publisher file and re-open it e) On a number of pictures (no idea which one and why) only the left upper part of them is displayed (see left picture, while right picture kept in size, in that case they are both 1.7. afphoto-files, but I got this phenomena on tiffs as well.) f) You have to click on the picture once, than the picture will expand again (second image below) g) I experienced both: all pictures staying afterwards in correct size - or (this happened once): each time I opened the file again, another click on that frames were necessary.

    text wrapped left-right seems reversed

    Hi, 1. rasterize: I tried, but it doesn't change ... (maybe because I copied the content of an afphoto file and pasted it into the publisher file directly ...) 2. After so many years I now checked this the first time in Indesign for comparision ... surprisingly it's the same behaviour! So lets call it the known standard :)

    text wrapped left-right seems reversed

    Hi Carl, You are right. I haven't expect this behaviour at all, but it's true, I flipped the image. Thanks a lot!

    text wrapped left-right seems reversed

    Hi, this a very mysterious thing !?!? Today I made a leaflet with V 1.7.3 (latest), and there this problem appeared suddenly (I'm sure i did not had this problem before!?). Next I created a new files for testing (with 1.7.3) and next I opened V 499 and did the same ... and the same problem happened - on V 1.7.3 & 499 beta. Now (hours later, system was meanwhile in sleep mode) I tried again on new files, and everything is ok this time (on both versions). I opend now the finished leaflet again and it is carrying still this problem, left and right are reversed. I habe no idea why suddenly the left-right is reversing AND why this happens on a new simple file I created immediatly after? And why it is ok again on new files after some hours later, but still wrong on previous saved file? If it is worth looking into it, I can upload the finished leaflet file with this failure? In that case, please give me an upload link ...
  9. Hi, Publisher (latest production version and beta 499) - any language Text wrapping: left is right, and right is left, they are reversed, I would say ... (especially because up and down are the right way) ...
  10. Hi Pauls, thanks for looking deeper into it. I think too, its a problem with the original .eps files. I have more of them. (My main client - in the medical field - "loves" shutterstock medical image - it seems that some specialists in medical drawings are selling all their stuff via shutterstock. But I have no idea, which program they are using for creating them.)

    Field Panel

    Thanks a lot, I think I saw that once, but forgot it.
  12. Hi, Publisher (all version incl. newest update) 1. Would it be possible to be able to enlarge (the upper) field by the user (I think I asked before)? 2. If 1. = yes, it would be nice, if the manually adjusted size of the panel could be memorized (same for the resources panel and font panel), so one has not to enlagre it anytime it is used (on larger documents, books especially resource panel its very often used!) 3. The word "prüfen" is a wrong german translation (meaning of "prüfen" is: test, we also use sometimes "check" in german therefore) Much more correct would be "auswählen" ("wählen = choose, auswählen = select, abwählen = deselect) - Alles auswählen - Absätze auswählen - Zeichen auswählen P. S. https://www.deepl.com/translator - seems to be the most advantaged translator for the moment

    Field Panel

    Hi, all publisher version (incl. newest Update) - at least German versions field panel is cutted off on the left side ... can not be adjusted ..
  14. Hi Pauls, I uploaded a zip file containing all different files ... named "... shutterstock_416026081..." Thanks
  15. Hi Pauls, the following concerns not to publisher directly, rather to Designer ... its about the "mitochrondrium" file mentioned above. But I write it here in conjunction to that what you have logged above. As the original file is under shutterstock license I would prefer to upload the file not in public. Do you have an upload link (if someone wants to look into). The orignal file is an .eps by shutterstock. 1. When opened in Illustrator, it looks ok, can be saves as an obvious correct .ai. 2. When trying to open it in any designer version (incl. the newest beta), designer is getting stuck. 3. Trying to open the created .ai file in designer, it opens in designer now, but displays it in a wrong way (or whatever it is). I'm not concerned about this file (eventually I could manage to correct it), but still there must be something (Illustrator open its correctly, designer can't and crashes). It could be possible, that more such files will have such a problem .. it also could be the reasons for the above "placing in publisher" problems!? But I don't know.
