  1. Welcome to the Serif Affinity forum. Another user just posted a related topic about that, with a solution. (I'm not sure it's the best solution, but it might work for you.)
  2. That looks like you're zoomed in quite far. What is your current zoom setting? As for not getting color added, what brush are you using, and what are its settings? Can you show us a screenshot of your complete UI, including the Navigator panel?
  3. Welcome to the Serif Affinity forum. 1.6.1 is the latest released version of Designer for Mac when purchased through the Mac Store. There is a later version number (1.6.5) for users who purchase directly from Serif, but it offers no new program functionality. You can find full details at:

    Gray'd Out Customization Options

    Welcome to the Serif Affinity forum. I've seen several reports from users who got themselves into that state, but I'm not sure anyone has ever reported how it happens. Thanks!

    problem with ALT in shortcuts

    I have tried other programs. I don't have Photoshop, though, so I can't try that one. And unfortunately, none of my other programs, as far as I know, use Alt+Space for a non-breaking space.
  6. The words "finding" and "offer" are accepted as US English in my copy of Designer. Are you sure you have the spelling language set properly in the Character panel?

    I think you'll need to close and reopen the document.

    Bug with hanging indent

    First, a hanging indent is easy in normal paragraph text. Just assign the first line an indent of 0 with a left indent of what you want: But what you're asking about a bulleted list. Fortunately, that's also easy. That's the default you get if you simply assign the Bullet 1 paragraph style to the text: For details of how to set it up if you want to make your own, just look at the definition of that one
  10. You might try it with Parallel Processing disabled in the batch job options.
  11. Possibly you need to rasterize?

    problem with ALT in shortcuts

    Are you sure this isn't just normal Windows processing? Alt, by itself, would switch to the menu bar as a standard Windows action. What happens in other applications?
  13. Create a new document, and in it create a Text Frame. In the Character panel specify the Spelling Language that you would like to be the default. Then: Edit > Defaults > Synchronize from Selection followed by Edit > Defaults > Save.
  14. Probably best, @BowmanSC, not to post your email address here. You and @dominik can exchange that kind of sensitive information via the forum's private message facility.

    Merge Layers

    That's rather vague. How about a screenshot, and some more information about the problem. Maybe even a sample file if you can share.
