  1. Until (or if) a bitmap tracing function is added to A-Designer, I use Inkscape's "Trace bitmap" function. It works reasonably well for my needs. This how I use that function... 1. Import bitmap into Inkscape. The higher the bitmap's resolution, the better. 2. Select the bitmap then run "Trace bitmap." The function's basic settings work fine in general for my needs. 3. Save the trace in Inkscape's native vectore file format, SVG. 4. Open/import the SVG in A-Designer. Inkscape website: https://inkscape.org/ (Current stable version: 0.92.4) In addition to using Inkscape vector files in A-Designer, I use them in laser engraving, CNC wood engraving, and CNC milling of aluminum and steel parts.
  2. Nothing happened when I used the key combination with artistic or frame text.

    Leading Not Applied

    I am able to adjust leading both using "text styles", baseline grid, and manual override. I work on a PC running Windows 10 (64-bit). I see that you are running AffPub-beta on a Mac (you mention in your post you are using OS X 10.11.6). You might want to post in the Affinity Publisher beta forum for Mac OS if you already have not done so. Maybe someone else has run into the same issue with the app as you have. Good luck!

    Affinity Publisher - Sneak Preview

    I was an early adopter of Affinity Photo (APhot) and Affinity Designer (ADsgn). I've completely moved my stock photo image processing to APhot. Although most of my vector work is now done in ADsgn, I still use DrawPlus X8 for functions still not present in ADsgn—such as warp mesh. The main aspect of my freelance work, however, is document design and page layout. PagePlus X9 continues to be my workhorse in this area until Affinity Publisher (APub) arrives. How would I go about becoming a beta tester for APub? I recently finished designing and typesetting a book for a client in PagePlus X9. I'm thinking that I could use the photos, illustrations, and copy from this project in recreating the book design in APub. Thanks for two great apps in APhot & ADsgn. And thanks in advance for working on getting APub out of the gate. -- Lowe
