  1. Could you name me one or two fonts that have these typographical option? I have no font having these options and there a quite a few installed. In most cases the superscript is doing fine, but the subscript is placed too low for my taste - I assume it is 58.3% of normal font height and lowered position by 33.3%. Of course I could define a Character Style, but I would prefer an extra setting (like in ID).
  2. Sorry, I don't if the title of this topic is the correct wording, but have a look at the image to see what I want. Step 1) Write some text with e.g. a bullet followed by a tab stopp Step 2) Define the left indent with 3 mm Result for Step 2) First Line Indent becomes also 3 mm Step 3) Correct First Line Indent into -3 mm Result for Step 3) Value for First Line Indent turns into 0 mm, but the visual result is correct Questions: Am I too stupid for a hanging indent? Wouldn't it be better if order is: First Line and then First Line Indent? Maybe I expect Publisher too often behave like Indesign. I guess there is a smarter way for a hanging indent in Publisher.
  3. Windows 8.1, German, 1.7.0.257 In Preferences Search = Suchen Having a search field there is nice to have, but Publisher is quite clean (thumbs up for this) concerning options you can set. So in my opinion noone will ever use the search ... it never came to my mind searching for "Pr├Ązise Zuschnitte" (still don't know what this is for).
  4. See attached image. I already resetted Publisher
  5. See image. I did not check if this applies also for width of combined cells. EDIT: Same applies for the width of combined cells. Additionally one wish: If you manually resize cells holding shift the size of the others cells e.g. all cells to the right keep their size. But if you resize a cell via the panel the next cell to the right gets smaller. Maybe you could a box to keep the sizes of neighbour cells?
  6. You can turn this off. Right-click on the task bar, pick Properties. There will be a checkbox where you can turn off showing the task bar on all screens.
  7. Windows 8.1, German, 1.7.0.257 Combined bug report and localization issue. In light UI icons are nearly "unreadable". There are also some translations for popup descriptions missing. 1. Draw stroke behind = Linie im Hintergrund zeichnen 2. Draw stroke in front = Linie im Vordergrund zeichnen 3. Place arrow within the line = Pfeil in der Linie platzieren 4. Place arrow at the end of the line = Pfeil am Ende der Linie platzieren 5. Swap arrow head with tail = Pfeilstil am Anfang und Ende tauschen 6. Just saw this, Start = Anfang End = Ende 7. Added: The word Gehrung moves into the left icon. But this is in general a problem with your panels, that the captions are moving positions when you increase/decrease the size of the panels.
  8. Do I have to be scared how you treat software?
  9. Menu Document -> Resource Manager. Changed files a such will be only recognized when placed as linked.
  10. Create a picture frame, place the image inside. Look at the context menu at the top. There are the options for rounded borders. Do not convert the picture frame into a curve to get the extra options.
  11. Inspired by the post of GarryP I started experimenting converting layers back and forth. Apologies for taking MEBs avatar as an example. I wonder what else is possible? Step 1) Place image Step 2) Convert into picture frame Step 3) Convert into text frame Step 4) Fill up the text frame with text - in this case the bullet (Alt+0149)
  12. Not working as I expect. 1) Created a simple document in Indesign with 3 coloured rectangles (1 spot, 1 RGB, 1 CMYK) plus some text in black. 2) Exported as PDF X-3. 3) Openend PDF in Publisher and created document palette from document. Result: Having now 5 colours in the document palette. One seems to be white, but if I use the CMYK slider it has 1% Cyan (rest 0). When you click the spot colour rectangle and look at the colour it says spot colour. If you look at the colour in the palette the colour is not marked as spot. Unfortunately I can't convert this colour into spot again. Unless you are not going to re-assign the colours from the palette the correct colour information of the objects is still intact. Other observation: Although imported the palette from the document the colours seem to have nothing in common. E.g. clicking on one rectangle I expect to see the colour marked in the palette, but this is not working. If you re-assign the colour from the palette for the objects the fill will be shown in the palette. farben.pdf
  13. Can confirm. Strange things happening here.

  14. German / 1.7.0.249 / Windows 8.1 Context menu for layers / right-click on layers Duplicate = Duplizieren
  15. Strange title for this post, but my English is not good enough to give it a better title. Step: Create a polygon and transform it to 60 x 60 mm width and height Result: The outer object box is bigger than the polygon itself I assume where it comes from: You can possibly distort the shape until it gets the dimensions you typed into the transform panel. To get the correct dimensions you have to convert the shape into curves. An extra step I would love to see eliminated. See attached image for clarification and more shapes with this "problem". Edit: It seems to be, that text wrap takes the shape dimension into account and not the shape box dimension, which is correct.
