  1. I personally think it would be best to hold off implementing PDF passthrough feature until the placed preview matches the actual original PDF (even a super low res one, I wouldn't care). For example, if I'm producing a newspaper filled with hundreds of PDF adverts placed as passthrough, although they may well export fine in the final output I'm not filled with confidence working on a document that looks wildly different to the final outcome. Just my opinion, not a criticism in any way! But this is a FANTASTIC feature - I'm loving the pace at which Publisher is developing
  2. Hi there, yes there is - I wanted to setup a Text Style that handled the bullets as I have A LOT of text to format. Using a font specifically for the shape means I can use it in my text style and change size / colour etc easily, updating all instances throughout the brochure. I'd previously used a polygon shape manually placed where I needed a bullet symbol for a leaflet that only had a few bullets in, but this version is MUCH easier to manage!
  3. LOL, sorry, I should of shared! I used this font https://www.fontspace.com/font-shapes-2019-f31329 and its worked great. Many thanks for sharing your link too!
  4. SORTED! Found a free font that contains shapes, all done
  5. Any idea on how to make custom bullet points like these please? The simplest option would be a font with a hexagonal character - does anyone know of one please?
  6. Client has come back to me and said that it was created entirely in Excel, latest version. I that helps?!
  7. Ah ok, thank you. I've asked the client where it came from so will wait and see.
  8. Sorry I can't be certain as a client supplied. I can ask them tho and hopefully they'll fill me in. First time i've had a need to import Excel so never seen the issue before. I also tried copy/paste in Excel into a new doc, resaved and tried again. Still crashed so there's definitely something in there that Publisher disagrees with!
  9. As per the title, open a fresh doc, go to File/Place, select a basic Excel doc and Publisher crashes every time. Pub 1.8.3, Mac OS 10.15.4.
  10. Hi @MEB many thanks for confirming that, it would be great if there was a pref to turn this off in the near future. Thank you!
  11. Many thanks for taking the time to look through as well. I guess we'll just have to wait to see if Serif replies to confirm.
  12. Thank you for the info. I've had a look through prefs but can't see anything. I'm working on a website visual in Designer at the moment and its doing my head in! Surely there's a way to turn it off?! I can see how this would be useful in certain situations but generally i wouldn't want it to work this way. If someone from Serif could confirm it I'd greatly appreciate it.
