  1. The fact there's one convention doesn't mean there's no room for other. And - as I wrote - I'm not expecting to have this implemented with the very next release of Publisher. I'm only providing a context which proves that more flexible approach to Footnotes may be beneficial for some users.
  2. If I still can have two wishes regarding foot/side/end-notes, let me express them: Right now I'm working on a document which has following numbering of footnotes: ... 15, 16, 17, 17bis, 18, 19... (that's because in 2nd edition a new footnote was added and it must not break old references), so I wish Publisher supports that in some way. Also, I wish there were an option to define margins of a footnote and to make them dependent on previous character (i.e. make smaller left margin if the footnote occurs after a punctuation mark): I know, those are very specific cases and I am aware they're very unlikely to be supported right away. But maybe some day...?
  3. I'm facing the same problem, but I'm working with a document which contains hundreds of embedded PDF graphics and it annoys me so much. Hopefully one day somebody adds proper option in properties
  4. Steps to reproduce: Select multiple PDF files in the explorer (at least three) and drop all of them into Designer window to import In the PDF Options window the "Group lines of the text into text frames" is ticked by default. Untick it. Click OK to import the first file Another PDF Options window appears. This time the "Group lines of text..." option is unticked - OK Click OK to import second file. Third PDF Options window appears. In this window "Group lines..." option is automatically ticked again. - Questionable/NOK Designer
  5. This is a very specific problem, which many users may never face. But this is an example which Illustrator handles perfectly, but Designer (and Publisher too) fails to handle. Sometimes I edit music sheets and so I need to import PDF with scores. Each score (note) is a glyph of a specially designed font. The typeface has one problem - it does not have whitespace characters. In result the imported PDF is full of nodef glyphs. Apparently it doesn't matter whether during import I uncheck "Favor editable text over fidelity" and "Group lines of text into text frames". Illustrator, on the other hand, produces clean result: PDF file and the music font are attached. Font of the lyrics is copyrighted, but has no matter in this case. ad_te_levavi.pdf GRECILIAE.TTF
  6. Steps to reproduce: Start Publisher Create any new document In Pages panel click on Page 1 Close document (not the app) Result: Duplicate Selected Pages and Delete Selected Pages buttons are active. When pressed Publisher freezes. Reproducible with Publisher, Windows x64 Edit: The same happens when in point 3 a Master page is selected - then Clone and Delete master pages buttons are active instead.
  7. EDIT: Just found an other thread with similar issue; the advise to break links seems to work. ------- Hi, I created a new project using Publisher 1.8, so the document is not some conversion from beta or some older version. It contains some linked Designer objects and uses document color pallettes. I saved the .afpub file successfuly, but I am unable to open it again -- the publisher closes right after the file is opened. It's not a crash, but rather a graceful shutdown of the app. I just cleaned cache and all preferences, but the issue persists. Affinity team - please provide a way to share the faulty files privately for further inspection.
  8. That's a good point and needs to be unified. Even if it's counterintuitive, the OpenType specification does not restrict enabling super- and subscript at the same time. Each OpenType font has a list of features which order is determined by its author. The specification states that features should be applied one by one according to the order. An OpenType feature can be applied to a whole paragraph, so if some font provides superior variant only for digits and inferior variant only for letters you may want to turn both features on (for some unknown reason ). Also, for those specific features, OpenType specification says clearly: To sum up: using both features is counterintuitive, but not forbidden. According to the specification superior variants main purpose are footnote markers (besides digits also: * † ‡ § ‖) and abbreviations, i.e. latin Mˢˢʳ or french ones:
  9. Fully agree - I apparently did not get the point of your previous post. My apologizes. To compare the terminology used elsewhere: Application Position superscript Position subscript OpenType superscript OpenType subscript InDesign Superscript Subscript Superscript/Superior Subscript/Inferior QuarkXPress Superscript Subscript OpenType > Position > Superscript OpenType > Position > Subscript Scribus Superscript Subscript Superscript (sups) Subscript (subs) So maybe the typography features can be renamed to Superior variants and Inferior variants?
  10. So as for now Published does not support allonges (various size pages) in facing pages mode. The rootcause of your problem is more or less the same as that one:
  11. Can you prepare a new document with some dummy content that reflects your problem? I am not sure if I understand it correctly - such document would definitely help.
  12. Edit: I complelety edited my reply as it sounded rude and that definitely wasn't my intention. I feel the sections clearly distinguish those two features - Positioning and Typography. Publisher's help tries to distinguish between those two, but I must admit - the explanation isn't informative.
  13. The Super- and Subscript buttons turn on typography features that are provided by the font you are using. For what I found if proper OpenType features (namely subs and sups) are not supported then Unicode defined super/subscript glyphs are used. In case of Arial there's only one superscript letter defined - n (Unicode glyph U+207F; for other glyph code points checkout out this post). Hence it's the only modified character. The same applies to subscript. What you want to do is to use superscript positioning instead: Note: if your font supports ordinal suffix (ordn OpenType feature), you may enable it with the button:
  14. Hey, Serif team! Do you have plan to get such improvement implemented or you find the current approach sufficient and don't see a point in reworking Text Styles in the (near) future?
  15. Guys, any chance to get this improved in the near future? It's so small thing but annoys so much...
