    Publisher: Superscript

    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?
  2. 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:
  3. 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.

    Publisher: Superscript

    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.

    Publisher: Superscript

    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:
  6. Hi guys. If any of the below statement is wrong please correct me. -------------- I work a lot with InDesign and there's one thing in Publisher that vexes me: so little controll over Text Styles list. I mean the lack of ability to create directories and to sort elements as I wish to. I am used to having styles in a order I use them in a document (first headers, than paragraph variants) To do that in Publisher I would need to prefix them with a number. But it makes later reordering quite hard. I tried that once and I ended with style called "8.25 Chapter number". That's very stup... ekhm... inconvinient. -------------- When it comes to directories: I'm aware of concept of Group Styles which was indended (?) to substitute directories. But the behavior is different. I work a lot with bi-lingual publications and in InDesign I very often make two directories with the very same styles (the only difference is language used for hyphenation). i.e. when I work with English I collapse French directory. In Publisher I can't have two styles with the same name: -------------- I would really appreciate the ability to organize styles in directories and to sort styles and directories according to my needs.
  7. You can find the correct folder location In Publisher's Edit > Preferences > Tools > Browse... in the 'Additional dictionary folder' section
  8. 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?
  9. Hi, I found it very annoying that each time I export my document to PDF I need to change the area option - it is always reverted to the default value. Could you please make Publisher to remember and keep the last chosen option?
  10. Guys, any chance to get this improved in the near future? It's so small thing but annoys so much...
  11. As you probably know Publisher supports hunspell dictionaries, so you are not bound by Serif at any point. You only need to find a dictionary (or more specific - hyphenation patterns) that work with the software. I had similar problem with polish and I finally managed to find dictionary which works well, but I can't recall where I took it from. You may try to google for: site:github.com hyph_cs_CZ.dic
  12. I checked it with polish text and can't reproduce it. I suppose it may be related to the czech (am I right?) hyphenation dictionary you're using. Could you please mark the text language as some other and check if the problem exists? To do so select the faulty part of text (s + <non-breaking space> + the following letters) and in Character sidebar menu switch Language to i.e. English.
  13. As far as I know not yet. The release does not mean the product has all requested features -- it only means the currently supported features are stable. And that they would like to finally make money out of this 2 years development (if not longer).
  14. Two requests: May you please explain step-by-step how you resize the pages? What do you mean by "only some resize"? It's hard to help when we have so limited information. Please be more specific. Second thing: Please rename this thread to better reflect your problem.
  15. I found that Publisher has problem with certain swash fonts when Scale for descenders is enabled. APub Steps to reproduce: Detach all styles (for keeping minimal number of styles; this step is not required) Create a new character style (let's call it Drop Cap Style): Font family: Gabriola (one of Windows fonts) Variants: Stylistic Set 06 set to 1 (other set to 0) Create a new paragraph style (let's call it Drop Cap): Drop Caps: Enabled Height in lines: 3 Scale for descenders: checked Style: Drop Cap Style Now type a few lines of text starting with lowercase g. Result: Only two lines of the text are indented due to drop cap, despite of setting height in lines to 3. The same issue can be observed in Yana regular font with Stylistic Set 03 enabled, when J is a drop cap letter.
  16. Hi I found an inconsistency in the interface. Let's say I created two paragraph styles: Parent and Child which inherits from the Parent. In Parent I set "Keep with next lines" to 2. Now I am unable to set the value of the Child to 0 - Publisher allows to enter either minimum value of 1 or [No change] (= inherited 2). Windows 10, Publisher v1.7.0.283
  17. Please noteIn some languages, like in polish, the double hyphen behavior is desired and in-line with typographical rules. But as far as I know it's not the case for english. I may be wrong. I found a workaround for this: Change Minimum score value in Hyphenation settings to at least 2 - then the additional hyphens dissapear. The remaining question is why it happens only in certain fonts... EDIT: In Arno Pro the issue is visible only for Regular and Caption weights... That's weird. I am going to investigate it further. EDIT 2: I can't see any significant difference between those weights in terms of OpenType features and glyph set. Serif team has to check it further
  18. Hi, I expected it is already reported, at it is quite noticable and annoying bug, but I could not find a proper thread. Please let me know if that's a known problem. The bug is that each word after single-letter words are automatically capitalized. Create a textframe Start typing an examplary text: 'And when I was young' The first letter of 'was' is capitalized (changed to Was) since is preceded by single letter word "I". It's more annoying in polish where you have multiple single letter words, like a, o, i z, w, u...
  19. Try to reset cache: Press and hold [Ctrl] while running Publisher.
  20. Hi guys. Recently I bought a layered font and start playing with it. I have to say I see an oportunity for an improvement. Right now I have to create multiple overlapping text frames with the same text and different style Please note that there are plenty of layered fonts, so there may be more users eager to use it in their projects: There are plenty of layered fonts: https://www.myfonts.com/search/tag:layered/fonts/ It could works like this: User have an option to create a Layered Style: Then user can combine existing character styles in any order. Layered style would behave as character style and could be selected for Drop Caps or simply used in running text.
  21. Hello guys! I got problem with setting different margins for odd and even pages in a two-page master. I am creating a document which has numbered paragraphs. I made a base style which has increased left margin and negative first line indent. To keep the text centered I have to decrease outter margin on left page and inner margin on a right one. I theoretically could make a text frame that extends the margin, but then I would have to take care of its correct placement and size. Is it possible in Publisher to set margins per master's page? Hope my question is clear.
  22. I believe it looks so bad due to lack of anti-aliasing. Please note the sharp edges - in most graphic editors they are faded-out and blended with a background.
  23. Hi, I made a custom abbreviarions dictionary for my language (Preferences > Abbreviarions) and I'd like to copy it to my other machine. Does anybody know where are the files located? I checked the directory where my Hunspell dictionaries are placed but it's not the right place.
  24. I think the title is self-explainatory. I wish publisher skip soft hyphens and other zero-width character in spellchecking.
