  1. Thanks! I was wondering if I was overlooking some settings that were overriding each other, but couldn't for the life of me figure out what was fighting with what.
  2. Uploading now. Please let me know if I'm missing an overriding setting somewhere. It seems to affect text frames as well. Some text frames with Style A won't align vertically correctly, while other text frames with the same Style A align vertically just fine. Would love to know what's going on. I'm including the whole file, which I should note was originally built in the Beta. So possibly there's some cleaning up to do that I've overlooked?
  3. The font has not been changed. It's the same as the one I was using during the beta, which took the alignment without any issue. After the full release, suddenly all of the text that has 'align center' format applied jumps to the top of the cell.
  4. The move from beta to open has been very smooth for me... aside from this one issue. Before, when I set text in a cell of a table to be Vertically Aligned Center, it was actually in the center of the cell. Now, it acts like there's 'space after' that it needs to account for. I've checked all my settings and I cannot figure out why it's doing this. I've included examples of the same cell text being aligned top, middle, and bottom. As you can see, the middle is not actually centered, but the top and bottom alignments are fine. I've even checked the text formatting of this cell and I don't see why it should be doing this weird thing with Aligned Center. Any idea what's causing this? My current workaround is manually doing this with cell inset measurements... but some of my cells have more than 1 line of text, so the adjustment has to be made row by row. :-(
  5. Finally got a chance to test it, and yes it is fixed! Thanks!
  6. This. I've been struggling with copy and pasting from a Google Spreadsheet. Now that I have 50+ cells to pull from, the individual copy & paste wasn't going to cut it, so I dug around on the forums. I found that downloading the Google Spreadsheet as an XLSX file, then opening it in Libre Office (because that's what I have) and then copy & pasting from there seems to stop the aggravating "all in one cell" issue I was having with Google Spreadsheet. Though this was never a problem in ID, so I'm guessing it's an issue on the AP side?
  7. I was running into this same problem. Someone mentioned elsewhere that some apps code spreadsheets differently. So I downloaded the Google Spreadsheet as an XLSX file, then opened it with Libre Office. Only then was I able to get it to paste into individual cells, instead of everything in one cell. Libre Office is free to use. Try that to open the spreadsheet and then copy and paste. The fact that you cannot paste directly from Google Spreadsheets, when I know other apps that do not have this problem, seems to be an element that needs to be addressed on Affinity's side - and apparently specifically for Macs as well?
  8. And I wasn't even trying! (Though I was seriously concerned I was overlooking something obvious.) Good to know it's not just me. Whew!
  9. I should mention my above 'solution' isn't permanent, as the styles in the panel continue to show as the color they are in my screenshot above, and any time I lay out new text and apply one of those paragraph styles, I have to repeat the process to get it to be the right color.
  10. It appears to still be an issue. I am currently on - in which the assets panel now works again. Here's what I'm doing every time I work on this layout: I do a Save As to create the next edition of this publication. I edit the spot color, which updates all the elements on the layout - even articles already laid out with the Drop Cap applied. HOWEVER, as soon as I delete the old text in that frame, insert new text, and apply the First Paragraph style to the new text, the Drop Cap color reverts to a spot color used in the original origin file. This seems to be an issue with bullets as well, which also refer to the Drop Cap character style to pull the color from. The Article Title is the correct color, which refers directly to the spot color, and not the "drop cap" character style - so maybe the issue is having a paragraph style refer to a character style for color? But if so, why is it pulling different colors for the First Paragraph and Bullets? I've attached screen shots for reference. The only way I can get either First Paragraph or Bullets paragraph styles to become the correct color is to go into the Drop Cap character style, change the color to any other color, close the panel, then open it back up again, and change the color back to the spot color. Only then does it take the color correctly.
  11. Of course! No reason it has to be an exact copy of every other layout program! :-)
  12. Yes, but that's not what I'm doing. I'm 'saving as' a file to make the new issue, then editing the spot color (which is part of the Document swatch). Which seems to update everything to the new color just fine except for the Drop Cap style. It should update all of the styles that refer to that spot color. But it doesn't for the Drop Cap. It still picks up the old spot color, even if in the settings panel is says it is using the new one. Including screenshots here.
  13. Just an FYI, I don't know any design program that has that feature. It's a coding thing, CSS/HTML, not a design thing. Certainly not offered by InDesign. Definitely not in something more basic like Excel. You can select a column and tell it how wide to be. When you adjust other columns, it won't affect the size of the column you've specified a width for. So simply set each of those dummy columns to your preferred width, and you're good to go.
  14. No, and I could have sworn I had posted that in the features request, but I'm not easily finding it now. Definitely speak up about it! Would save me some time and headache when a client wants to make an order change and I have to do a little dance to shuffle everything back around.
