  1. Trying to use the 'edit with' option in Apple Photos to make use of Affinity Photo to edit my photos. I can get Affinity Photo to launch but not to write back the edited photo in Apple Photos - am I missing something?
  2. Thanks Dave I'd missed that - very helpful!
  3. Glad it's not just me - and I find that more often than not I can't find any such frames, which means either there's a false positive warning or I'm missing something - neither of which are good. It strikes me that one thing which would really help would be some kind of indication - perhaps on the border of the frame that there is overflowing/leftover text. Or even change the outline colour of the frame - perhaps to red to give another visual clue.
  4. If you attempt to save a document (Publisher) with overflowing text in one or more frames, you get a warning. But I haven't found a way to identify the offending frames? - is there a way? (other than just scanning through the (potentially very long) document....

    Style name weirdness

    It's not happened again - and doesn't occur in a different document so it's all a bit odd - if I can reproduce it I'll come back to you! Thanks
  6. I renamed a paragraph style and now it appears in the style menu as white box- see below. The text is just readable as a faint grey colour. Is this a feature or a bug? If it's a feature how can I revert the display to the normal style?
  7. So two different ways of opening multiple documents. Haven’t tried the top option – haven’t spotted that as a child. So two different ways of opening multiple documents. Haven’t tried the tab option – haven’t spotted that as an option But so far I’ve not been able to drag and drop between open documents. Is there a way to do this?
  8. OK = I've invoked something called 'separated' mode which has achieved the desired result. Seems a bit odd!
  9. Simple question - or if it's not possible a feature request. Can one have more than one Publisher document open at a time? If it's possible can someone tell me how to do it as selecting File/Open simply replaces the document on screen with the whatever the new document it...

    Unwanted indent

    thanks guys Yes it was a text frame setting. At that point I hadn't discovered this option buried within Studio. Now I have so problem solved thanks to your help and Youtube! Very much enjoying getting to grips with Publisher - taking me back to the 'good old days' of Aldus Pagemaker! and such a relief to be working with a 'proper' DTP program that isn't Adobe ransomware. So now I have a replacement for Freehand, Photoshop and InDesign/Quark. Happy days!

    Text box fill?

    thanks guys - bit of weird interface design to bury such a basic option so deep within the layers but now I know !!!
  12. I have inadvertently created a text box with a fill - see screen shot. How on earth do I get rid of it?
  13. If it does turn out that we need an external app to reliably print booklets via APub on the Mac then have a look at the Create Booklet app by the Kept Promise. http://thekeptpromise.com/CreateBooklet/ I have NOT as yet tried it with APub but have used it for several years to create booklets direct from Word and found it be very simple to use and very reliable. It installs as an option on the normal print dialogue box on the Mac under the PDF dropdown...
  14. I don't see these options either. As it happens I already have an excellent program 'Build Booklet' so it's not an issue for me, but clearly Publisher has the ability to impose a booklet - we just can't see how to do it!
  15. See screenshot. My text boxes have picked up an unwanted indent and I can't figure out how to fix it! I can't simply drag the indent markers back to the left and right edges..
