  1. This is slightly different to the issue in that post. I already have the artboards, it's only the symbols I have copied across them.
  2. I'm having problems with symbols in a design; all but one of the copies is updating. I have created a template with several artboards for different versions of social media images. Part of the design has the text 'WEEK XX'. I have created a symbol and copied across four of the artboards. That's fine, they all update in unison. I have created a fifth copy, which I needed to change to title case and add a drop shadow. I disabled sync to do this and made the changes. Even after enabling sync again, it doesn't update with the rest. The symbol attributes show Unlinked Transform/Constraints but the text itself shows Unlinked Layer Effects, Text, Text Frame. I have tried different variations as it was initially the reverse; having spawned four copies from the title case version, the four refused to update. Can anyone shed some light on this?
  3. Hi Joachim_L, I think my technical language wasn't clear - I mean overrides. In InDesign, for example, when you hover over the style it displays the override detail - it used to display the entire style detail with the changes at the bottom. I think I've found it now. It's at the top of the style panel in Apub.
  4. I might be missing the obvious here. In A***e products, you can see pre-commited alterations to styles when you hover over a style in the panel; they appear at the bottom of the popup. Is there any way to see this in APub?
  5. Ah yes, of course. Both do the same but locking is slightly easier!
  6. Thanks for the feedback, everyone. I've almost managed to recreate Photoshop's behaviour by setting my file access permissions to read-only (Mac). Instead of creating a new document, as Photoshop does with a template document, Affinity prompts to Save As when I save after making changes. No more undoing changes on the template! David
  7. This might be a question or possibly a feature request. Is there a way of replicating Photoshop's .PSDT template format in Designer? It's a little feature but it's such a timesaver.
  8. I'm also experiencing problems with perspective projection. It worked on the first release but since subsequent updates it's misbehaving. My issue is that the wrong section of the image is isolated when I select another tool after creating the grid. See attached. David
