  1. Agree - the old icon was much nicer
  2. As a paragraph style, yes. But no need for the baseline grid being involved if not wanted/desired. Agree, yes it should be a paragraph style, doesn't need to be linked with Baseline. The InDesign implementation uses the paragraph settings panel and that works for me
  3. When you wrote "is not available yet" does that mean you expect it will be available at some time? THat would be good to know.
  4. @fde101Are you thinking of tables? I'm familiar with using merge cells for a table. But here I'm talking about a two-column text frame. When I get to a break in a story, I would like the heading for the new chapter to span both columns and all the text for the previous chapter be above the heading and all the text for the new chapter below the heading. InDesign works like that. Everything else about Affinity Publisher is looking good but I would miss that ability. The alternative is to break the page frame manually but that means more manual effort resizing frames if I go back and add text to the previous chapter .
  5. My mistake. I had added a separate text frame for the title of the two-column booklet I was creating, because Publisher doesn't (yet?) support a "span column" paragraph style. And although the text of the title didn't overflow its frame, there was a paragraph return at the end of the last line which caused Publisher to think that the frame was overset, even though all the text was visible. And, yes, I must have missed the little eye icon. Feature request: to indicate overset frames, use a different colour (red) for the overflow indication icon to make it easier to spot.
  6. @JaneEIt is possible to overlook the little eye icon, but in my case, the icon wasn't displayed until I added some more text to my frame and it really did overflow. And then the icon was visible without having to resort to huge magnification. The problem I reported was the error message saying that a frame had overflowed when actually no text frame had overflowed.
  7. @MEB Uploaded! The error message happens when I try to export the file (on Mac High Sierra); hopefully, you will be able to reproduce it.
  8. @Aammppaa thanks, that's useful - I hadn't found the "Show Special Characters" setting. But I had already checked that none of the text frames was overset. I can provide a link to my file for someone to look at, but I'd prefer not to make it globally visible. Who should I send the link to?
  9. Same for me - I should have said in my earlier post that I checked for the overflow indicator and couldn't find one. But I had added an image, using the "Scale to Max Fit" option which means that it may have been cropped. Maybe the overflow warning message is really trying to tell me that an image has been cropped.
  10. Same problem - I don't think I have any frames with overflowing text but I get this message. I'm using a 2-column text frame for the main text. The problem seems to have started when I added an image frame, and a text frame for the caption (and set the text wrap options to Jump).
  11. Yes please. It's a very useful feature for a heading or title to span several columns of a text box. InDesign can do this.

    Affinity Publisher - Sneak Preview

    I've been hoping Affinity Publisher will save me from having to subscribe to Adobe Indesign (I'm still running a purchased copy of Indesign CS6 on MacOS High Sierra). But I just read that the next MacOS, due in the autumn, will drop support for 32-bit apps, which include Indesign CS6. So I'll need to hold off upgrading MacOS or find an alternative to InDesign CS6.
  13. Puredesign Good list - https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/profile/235-puredesign/ Other features I’d like to see include Fit/fill image to frame support for kerning and ligatures table of contents and internal cross-reference capability export to ePub as well as PDF (I’m an InDesign CS6 and previously PagePlus user who doesn’t want to go down the monthly payments route for software)
