  1. PDF was never meant as an editable format (and there are so many applications who think they write a correct PDF), so as a workaround I would define text styles with a correct spacing and apply them to the text.
  2. I am puzzled as anyone else (maybe). I created a document on the PC desktop, placed (linked) a SVG and saved the document. Nothing unusual so far. After that I created a directory on our server drives, closed the document and moved (or copied) .afpub and .svg there. Then I opened the .afpub on the server drive and now the SVG had the PDF Passthrough option in the context toolbar. I can recreate this at any time with different SVG, no matter saving it on desktop first, then moving it to the server drive or first saving to the server drive and then moving it to the desktop.
  3. From my side there are no problems. I made some printouts with various settings both from APu and a PDF reader. Out of curiousity: What is the name of the proof system? I had some problems with ancient PCL versions a while ago.
  4. Welcome to the Affinity forums @Anna Línková! Hard to tell where the problem is, without examining the APublisher document. Could you upload the document here or if confident ask a moderator for a private upload link. Edit: I opened your PDF and breaking the top group solved the problem. So perhaps there is an effect applied to some layers?
  5. Could you upload a stripped down version of the APu document here? Edit: Did you send a PDF to the printer bureau or was it the APu document? If PDF, can you upload the PDF too?
  6. Nothing I would say. I can confirm this too. As "Distance From Text" is memorized, the "Wrap Style" and "Wrap To" should be memorized too, I would call it a bug. You should post your finding in the bug section or this thread should be moved. As a workaround you can save your text wrap setting as a Style or an Asset.
  7. Welcome to the Affinity forums @Zainab! The Sunlight overlays are assets not brushes, so you'll find the Sunlight overlays in the Assets panel.
  8. Comparing 20 years of Indesign to 2 years of APu, we came quite far already. I wonder where we get in 18 years. 🤔
  9. AFAIK there was no difference in functionality between 1.8 and 1.9 Meines Wissens ist in diesem Bereich nichts verändert worden. Es liegt einfach an der Schrift, ob das angeboten wird.
  10. With which font are you trying to achieve this? It depends on the font, whether super-/subscript is available or not if you want to use it from Typography. Using the Super/Subscript pulldown in the Character panel should? work with any font.
  11. Leave the double pages as is, export as PDF and select from the Area pulldown "Pages" in the export dialogue.
  12. Perhaps Serif should reduce the number of icons to be get a more consisten UI? E.g. the lock symbols in the export setting and the Colour Panel. Basically they are doing the same: Locking / Protecting something. But in the export settings the icon changes to an open lock, whereas in the Colour panel the lock gets a slightly different background colour. Nothing to identify the current status easily here.
  13. Welcome to the Affinity forums @ANDERSON FARRY! If I interpret your screenshot right, then your image is still lying beside the rectangle and because of the clipping you cannot see the image anymore. Moving the image layer into the rectangle layer does not mean, that you changed the position. Select the image in the Layers panel, so that you can see the handles and then move the image to the left edge of the rectangle (or something like that).
