  1. Is it possible to assign a key command to snap a selected object to a margin, page edge, or guide? I don't see that listed as on option in the Key Commands area. If not, I think it would be a great feature to add. Thanks!
  2. Looks to be the same issue for the GH6. I don't have one yet, but tried opening a RAW file I was able to download to check out.
  3. I believe it's been mentioned before, but a Book function might be nice.
  4. A strange behavior found today.... Today I drag/dropped a pdf on the pasteboard of my Publisher doc, and I did get a dialog of missing fonts, and options for which pages to load. However, no such dialog on using the Place command. Looks like a bug, so I'll post this there as well. Using InDesign as an example, you get an alert of missing fonts from within a document and within imported art as well. Seems you only get an alert of missing fonts in the main Publisher doc. Neither Font or Resource Manager show it either. I got bitten by this yesterday when I sent a pdf proof of an ad program to a client, only to have him call to tell me several pages looked strange. That's when I figured out what happened. I can't really expect that businesses that submit ads as a pdf know to embed the fonts first, so this wouldn't happen, but there you are. My quick solution was to outline the fonts in the original document and export the art again. Not a best-practice move in my book, but until I learn Publisher better, that's what I'll do. I have reported a feature request that Publisher include the ability to check for missing fonts within imported files.

  6. Actually, you can control this when you create a Paragraph Style. I don't recall InDesign checking for those in it's Preflighting. See screen shot PDF below. Screen Shot 2019-10-19 at 20.29.10.pdf
  7. Sean, In all honesty, I'm agreeing with Mark on this. Just didn't know it works that way, and it was becoming frustrating. Walt is also correct that it is DEFINED as an override. Might just be the way I'm used to doing things from "other" software. What I'm saying is that if I need a specific amount of leading on a paragraph, I can simply create a Paragraph Style for that, and make twiddly adjustments locally when necessary. That's where those key commands for those adjustments come in handy.
  8. I began to do a video, with new docs on all Affinity products, and the key command works fine....so now I was really wondering... So I went back to my original doc in Affinity Photo, and found I had a value of 30 in the Character/Positioning and Transform/Leading Override. Once I changed the value to Auto, I was able to use the Key Command. So it appears that locks in any leading without begin able to adjust it. Looks like user error on my part. Sorry about that, all! The doc is too big to attach here, but hope my explanation is clear. Thanks! I do enjoy Affinity products!

  10. I had to create a badge for a billboard, recreating one sent from a client for placement. So I decided to use Designer for the art. Although the key commands for adjusting line spacing (called Paragraph Spacing in the Text menu) is <opt><up arrow><down arrow>, they would not move the text at all. Seems to also happen in Photo as well. Works fine in Publisher, however. Unless I've missed something, manually typing a value is far less efficient than using the key command. Any ideas? I've posted this in the Photo forum as well. Thanks!
  11. I had a billboard job where I decided to try Photo to do the layout, as the vendor wanted a PSD file. Really fast, and much easier to do than in PhotoShop. Although the key commands for adjusting line spacing (called Paragraph Spacing in the Text menu) is <opt><up arrow><down arrow>, they would not move the text at all. Seems to also happen in Designer as well. Works fine in Publisher, however. Unless I've missed something, manually typing a value is far less efficient than using the key command. Any ideas? I've posted this in the Designer forum as well. Thanks!
  12. Like InDesign, I would also like the ability to automatically copy to the others, so if I want a .125" bleed all around, I only need to enter it once.
  13. Would it be possible to add a preflighting toolset to Publisher? Great job on the beta!
