  1. You should be able to find it using the Navigation panel, and/or move it using the Transform panel, if you have its layer selected in the Layers panel. In fact, if you look at the Transform panel, it's Y coordinate is ~2418mm. If you set that to 0 it should become visible on its page, though it still may be much too big.
  2. You're welcome. One other hint: Don't expect any carryover from how PPX9 worked. Affinity Publisher is a completely new product written from scratch. You will (I believe) find many differences in how things work, even for those cases where both provide the same or similar functions.
  3. Publisher already provides two ways to handle this; Document > Font Manager... will show you all the fonts in use in your document, and their status. Find (available via Text > Find... or View > Studio > Find and Replace) lets you find things based on their format, including their font. To do that you click on the gear/cog icon in the Find part of the Find and Replace panel and then choose options. Once there you select the Font section, and change the right-hand pulldown from All to Missing. At that point, if you have any missing fonts, you can select one in the Font Family pulldown, then click OK. That will set up the FInd operation to look for that font. Then you just click Find. Here are some screenshots to demonstrate what the Find dialogs look like (but as I didn't have any missing fonts I couldn't actually show that).
  4. I suggested two approaches: some ways to zoom, and some ways to easily move the image to find the handles without zooming. If you don't want to zoom, that's fine. Perhaps the other approach will work for you.
  5. Does that work reliably for you in Publisher? I just tried it and I'm dragging left but the page is trying to move right in kind of a stuttering fashion.

    To reposition the ruler origin:

    Your Customize Toolbar dialog was not scrolled all the way to the bottom. The tool you wanted is lower in the list.

    Compress tif file

    What are your image dimensions (in pixels), what is the intended use, and what is the DPI setting currently? (By the way, TIFF images exported from Affinity Photo are automatically compressed using LZW.)
  8. Why do you expect that? Shift+End selects from the text cursor to the end of the line. Looking at 4 other applications I have on Windows: In one, Ctrl+shift+Down selects the next line of text, but not the current one. In another, it does nothing at all. (Also true in Affinity Designer.) In another, it selects from the text cursor to the end of a paragraph. In Publisher, the default shortcuts define Ctrl+Shift+Down as affecting paragraph leading:

    Can you supply a sample text file as an attachment?

    Missing Font

    I guess my question would be what is the "it" that's relying on something? Publisher seems to be telling you that an asset you're using relies on a font that (somehow) you don't have installed. Where did you get that asset? Did you create it? Did you create it on the same computer you're using it on? If so, you presumably had the font when you created the asset. Did you uninstall the font? (Basically, I think a lot more information is needed about how you got into that situation.)

    Missing Font

    If you don't have the font installed, where would you expect Publisher to find it? I think it will have substituted one of your existing fonts. You can find more info about what it did by using Document > Font Manager.
  12. Thanks, Mike. Didn't understand that subtlety For my edification, how do you examine the file to see that kind of info?

    Problem with BETA 1.70.133

    Do you happen to have a gradient fill on the text frame? If so, possibly it's this problem.
  14. For the last one, it's likely you needed to separate the Chinese and English portions so the have separate font and language specifications. (Character panel, perhaps? I'm away from the computer right now.) For the others, I'm not sure; will need to play with it.
  15. I just downloaded your file, opened it in Publisher, and looked in the Resource Manager: Looks like a bunch of .tif (not .psd, nor .jpg) files in that PDF, to me.
