  1. It is very easy to select the wrong dot at the lower corner of a text box so that instead of resizing the enclosing box you change the font size when you move the dot. Is there a way to get the text inside a box (which you discover later was mistakenly resized) back to the original size?

      The only thing I have found to work is to  delete the wrong sized text frame and make a new one, then relink the text flow.

  2. After copy/paste from Word doc into Publisher the text formatting is retained only if I leave the font the same as in the Word doc. If I highlight a section and change to a defined Publisher style all the formatting goes away. How can I import Word text into my document and use a different font/style and not lose the Italic and bold characters?
  3. Thanks. Have you upgraded to version 1.9.1? I'm still with 1.9.0 See my post above... I got it to work by removing all the master page assignments.
  4. Still looking a master page situation. It seems I can apply master page margins to all pages only if the "replace" is checked. So the sequence I find works is to apply margin masters with replace checked then apply page number masters with replace NOT checked. This gives all pages margins and numbers.
  5. After a bit of trouble-shooting I discovered the issue is related to the master pages. I cleared all the masters on all pages and after that I could switch between single page layout and facing page layout. There is some additional issue with the master pages as tried re-applying margin masters to the book and I cannot see them - (yes I have view masters checked). The page number masters show up as expected but no margins.
  6. I created a book using "facing pages" and need to convert to single page for printer. When I go to "document setup" and deselect facing pages the program hangs. Publisher V 1.9.0 Mac OS10.11.6
  7. Uploaded original file to DropBox Desktop Mac OS 10.11.6 Affinity Publisher 7.1.1 created original file - saved on both local disk and external backup hard drive...neither source file will load. There are a lot of linked images in this project which I can't delete of course. Don't worry about providing recovered file as I have recreated it in v1.9.0 using PDF which was exported correctly from original Publisher file. I've discovered one other older file that won't load as well.
  8. I have determined that the problem apparently is with the file. I reinstalled v1.7 - which is the version used to create the file. When I tried to load the file the program did not crash but I got a "file corrupted" notice. Might put that same notice up with v1.9 when a corrupted file is encountered and not just crash the program. Thanks for all the suggestions.
  9. Installed the beta 1.9.1with same result as 1.9.0 -- crashes at "loading document" I have a work-around. Fortunately I have a finished PDF which I can use for reference and have re-created the document in 1.0.9. Thanks for trying.
  10. Appreciate your note but let me better explain. I got a program flag a few days ago when I opened v 1.8 Publisher that an update was available... I selected "upgrade and relaunch." It looked like all was successful, I now had version 1.9 directly from Affinity via the update. But when I tried to open an older project I got the program crash. So I need to know how to either revert to previous 1.8 - if that is even possible - or how to circumvent the crash so I can open my 1.8 project. Thanks.
  11. I'm Mac OS 10.11.6 purchased from Affinity. Product Key CB5R-9DBP-DE**-**** If I download the 1.9 will it automatically recognize my original purchase or can I register with my existing Product Key?
  12. I have a book project created last year with previous version of Publisher. When I try to open the file I see "loading file" at the top of normal layout, then after about 10 seconds the program closes with no further message or error. I've tried a backup (duplicate) version or the file as well. Before upgrade this file opened fine. I can open a different project file, so the new upgrade seems to not like just this particular older file - which I really need to access. So should I try downloading and re-nstalling 1.9.0 again from scratch.? Can I go back to previous version that created the file? Help!!
  13. Old Bruce I have separate margins and numbers master in order to specify specific sets of margins. Page numbers are across the entire document, margins are different by sections.
  14. I've discovered that when I add more page at end of a book I need to reapply the margin master with "replace existing" checked. Then I add the numbers master with the "replace existing" NOT checked and the formatting is as expected. The sequence is important as is the "replace existing" setting.
