  1. Yeah but release candidates are often numbered indicating that they can increase if needed (and often do) while golden masters are the very final version set to be released and seldom/never numbered, right?
  2. Yes, I really would like to do this too. I hope it's on the internal roadmap.
  3. I know it's an old thread but it shows up in Google searches so: there is a way to view the percentage of original size:
  4. I'm not speaking for Serif, but everything said so far is that opening InDesign .indd files won't happen for now, only .idml files. There are technical reasons for why (as Joachim_L said: ”INDD is a locked format, so Serif has to reverse-engineer it”). If you have so many years of work in InDesign, maybe it's worth buying Adobe CC for a month and export those files to .idml, or buy IDMarkz to convert them?
  5. Let's say your workflow is creating publications that you export as PDF for print or web. And in these publications you embed external PDF's (like ads). With PDF Passthrough (as far as I understand it) you will now be able to let these embed these and output them verbatim in your final PDF. This may sound like an obvious feature to have, I agree, but up until now that was not the case for some embedded PDF's i Publisher.
  6. Have you tried the PDF Passthrough function in the Publisher beta? You can't edit the PDF but at least you can embed it:
  7. Oh, yes, you are right, I forgot about that. Before CS4 there was the INX format.
  8. This is the year 2020. No. But you if you can export it to IDML then you can open the IDML file in Publisher.
  9. Ah, yes, the white background, it makes sense that it was part of the problem, I actually forgot about it. Supersampling worked well for me this time and I'm happy with the end result of that. (Now that I think about: would it make sense to add a supersampling function to bitmap export? Like a checkbox "Supersample eight times before export" or something like that.) Anyway, thanks for the fast and detailed response!
  10. My workaround for now was to increase the document size massively, copy merged, new document from clipboard so I got a rendered version that looks better.
  11. I've done that now. Also included the PDF that I placed in Photo (probably not necessary, I assume Photo is embedding the file rather than linking it).
  12. Did you ever solve this? I'm having issues with rotated PDF in Photo with jagged edges that I would like to smooth. See screenshot.
  13. Designer is quite nice – especially considering the low, non-subscription price – and for a lot of tasks it can replace Illustrator (or even surpass it; the unified file format with Photo and Publisher is awesome) but there are still missing features (like this one or perspective distort or, until 1.8, expanding strokes correctly) and if one of those features happen to be important for your needs then Designer might not (yet) be for you. Fortunately there is a free trial so you can check that your pet peeve feature works before buying.
  14. Oh, thank you, I didn't know about that command! Works fine for selected text with multiple text styles (but did not work for an entire selected text frame, but that is not a big issue).
  15. Yes! Exactly what I want too! Also: to be able to add more images to this permanent place panel and even drag and drop images from the page to the panel. That would enable a very effective workflow that's not possible today, if you have a lot of images and a lot of pages but you haven't decided which image goes to a certain page.
