  1. For whatever reason, this only seems to be happening with Calibri as far as I can tell. As well as only happening no MacOS, it works fine on the Windows version. I ended up trying to install my exact Calibri font-file from Windows into MacOS and that didn't really change things at all. The headers of the tables that are messed up are Calibri-Bold whereas the body is simply Calibri. The text underneath the first table is Calibri Light-Italic. So it seems to work in some locations but not others. Anybody have any ideas as to what could be causing this? XT Series Brochure 2 Page.pdf

    Character/Font errors when exporting to PDF

    Thank you for the response! I have been going back and forth between the two. It exports properly on Windows. I deleted the Calibri font that had been on my Mac and installed the exact version that's on my Windows PC. I didn't even think about the fact of there being a font cache though. I'll try to clear that and see if it helps on the Mac side o' things.
  3. I didn't realize that you could do that on a Mac. That would help me as that's what I've been using but not anybody else in the company. I've slowly been getting pulled more and more into that dark side. Thank you though. I appreciate the reply!
  4. I was wanting to start using Publisher for documentation at work and would like to keep all of the generated documents looking the same even though 5-6 people will be creating them. What would everybody suggest be the best way to accomplish that? I realize there aren't tutorials yet. I created a few layouts as drag-drop assets, which will help some, but it'd still be nice to be able to have 3-4 different Master Pages that just acted like Templates that you could drag into place, then just edit the pictures or text that are on them. Does that make sense? Or does anybody have any good ideas on how to create something like this so that I could generate assembly/testing/shipping documents that all have the same formatting? I'd greatly appreciate any input
  5. Got it. Thank you for explaining!
  6. I'm not sure if this has been posted. I did a quick look but didn't notice. And maybe it isn't actually a bug and I'm just silly. However I have a document that I was creating images of all the characters supported by custom LCD displays that we use at work. We have one that is a green background with black text, and then one that's blue background with white text. So after I finished with all the green, I started to create the blue ones. I made it so that they actually have all the pixels that you see on the LCD so each character is actually 41 different layers(the backdrop and then the 40 pixels). When I was recoloring from the green to the blue, I'd select all the pixels to change them from black to white. If I chose white with the color picker, and then clicked on it to change the colors, then the opacity of the layers stayed the same(I had 100% opacity for the pixels that are "on" and 10% opacity for those that are "off"). However, if I used a swatch, then the opacity that I had set was blown away and everything was made 100% black or white depending. I did try this on both the Mac and the Windows version and both act the same way. So maybe I'm just thinking that they should operate differently than they actually do? On a side note, if anybody wants some LCD fonts... I got 'em. There's a screenshot of the green background. I know that's from my iPad and not Windows, it was just more handy at the time that I made the screenshot.

    Templates & Asset Packs

    Hey there. Sorry to piggy back off of this post 6 months later.... but.... Are there plans or is there a way now to make your own template? So if I had plans of using this to create documentation at work and trying to get other people to do the same, could I make a "Product Assembly Document" Template with just filler images/text there? I was working on building an asset pack and grouping together different items to be able to be used easily, but wasn't sure if there was a better way. Currently I have a just a few different layouts like 3 picture/text boxes in a column, two half page images, or something along those lines that they can drag out. If there was something like a Master Page but.. a... Master Template, that you apply to sub pages that auto-lays out what you wanted. That'd be fantastic
  8. Could it have anything to do with Windows being at 1.6.5 and Mac still being 1.6.3? Maybe there was an inadvertent change? I just created a random file though in Win 10 on 1.6.5 and opened it in 1.6.1 on my Mac without issue though.
  9. Hello there. I'm not sure if this is a bug or a feature request? Just downloaded the Designer app for my iPad Pro. Super excited to play with it more, but the very first project that I opened from the cloud I had a font that I'd used on my Mac that isn't on the iPad. So when I opened the file, it defaulted to a supported typeface and every bit of the spacing is completely thrown off. Is there an easy way to fix this or to sync the font used in the desktop version?

    Sync Font/Typefaces for Designer

    My hero! I hadn't noticed that. That was incredibly helpful. Thank you very much!
  11. I know that being able to get digital copies of the Photo and Designer Workbooks is all the rage right now. Mostly as in rage at not being able to do it. However, I understand Serif's worry about the book being pirated and spread illegally after they put the time and effort in to it. That being said, they have also put a lot of time and effort into the software as well. So what if, along with brush packs and filters, we were able to purchase a license for the a digital copy of the workbooks but not in the traditional manner of thinking. What if it were built into the software so that it wasn't an easily pirateable format? Have a new window that is called "Tutorials" or "Workbooks" or something like that and that window houses each of the projects and instructions that are included in the workbook. We could also build community tutorials as well that could be added into the same window. Maybe have a "fleshing out" period for the community submitted ones, where others in the community or even Serif staff could be Beta testers for the tutorial, and if the merit is seen in the tutorial and it's not just a steaming pile.... then it gets added in as well. Then not only would those demanding digital versions of the workbook be happy, but then even more information could be had by all and it would make it that much easier for the program to spread to new users. Not to mention, if the book was built in to the software like that, then it could get incremental updates with the software as new features or functions become available What are your thoughts?

    Affinity Photo Workbook

    I'm incredibly torn on this subject and I can see it from both points of view. I can see why they would be worried about losing out on sales due to people sharing the book digitally without buying multiple copies. Be that piracy or 'helping a friend out' or whatever the case may be. However, I think they are missing out on potentially more sales due to the fact that it isn't available digitally. I did buy a copy of the Designer Workbook, and it is very nice and I'm happy to support the company as much as I am able. However... lugging that around is a bit of a pain in the arse along with my Macbook. I do think, however, that there is a happy medium for everybody. They already have their video tutorials as well as the ability to download samples of other peoples public artwork. I think that could be revamped/updated in such a way as to have the workbook built into an easily update-able tutorial. If it were built in, even at an extra cost, then it could be updated incrementally along with the software. Then you don't have it being available to the masses and easily copy-able. Build it into its own panel, allow that panel to be popped off to the side and go through the workbook alongside your art instead of having to balance a book while hoping it stays open to the proper page. OR just have a one-time use license in the copies of the hardbound books that enable that feature. Then we still get the nice keyboard shortcut pages as well as a digital format that's more portable. So maybe we can come together as a community and make something like that happen. Build the support for the program up and help it grow while making life easier on us as well. Just my own thoughts on it.
  13. Hey there, not sure if this is the place, but going through the workbook and I noticed this. I did search the forums and didn't see it pointed out anywhere else soooo figured I'd share in case you wanted it fixed in future printings... In section five we create the Fisherman. On the introductory page as well as the full spread on 300 his fresh catch is missing its legs. But on page 299 it shows the fisherman's catch as clearly having legs. and we create them in the lesson. Not sure if an unfinished was deliberately used, or just an oopsy.
