    You don't have integer values for Position (X, Y) and Size (W, H). When you export in a raster format, those values fall in between full pixels, therefore you will have "lines". If you fix the values (Just round them up to the nearest integer value) you should be fine. 

    Ah, so even when working on projects destined for print it may be a good idea to use "force pixel alignment"?

    YES. Also: this.

    I'll definitely be using Publisher for most (if not all) of my projects as soon as it comes out of beta. Bring on the multi-line composer with hyphenation fine-tuning controls, and I'll be using it for typesetting entire books, too.

    And the ability to Span Columns!


  3. I'm sure this has been asked already but I figured I would give it a bump because it's so important. I have left Adobe behind for a bright Affinity future, but I sorely miss the Transformation Panel that Illustrator had—it's so much more useful than the current iteration of Power Duplicate because it allows the user to preview how the duplications look before locking them in. For generating symmetrical designs this is vital.

    Also missing the simple functionality to duplicate and ADD vs being limited to duplicate and MULTIPLY. For example if I want to make concentric circles that increase at 5pts diameter with every iteration, I have to do this manually because power duplicate progressively increases the diameter changes with every iteration.


  4. When I try to open a new studio (panel), the panel opens in the center of my screen and so tall that I can't see the top of it. I can't grab it to reposition it anywhere. 

    I've only tried this with Character and Isometric panels, they both do the same thing.

    I'm on a Mac, 10.13.6

  5. I often work on multi-page documents that require text blocks to reverse from black to white depending on the image underneath the text on that particular page. I may also employ subheads that use Paragraph Rules (a line beneath the subhead and the subsequent body copy).

    In InDesign, I would set up a Paragraph Style defining the text as Black, and make sure the Paragraph Rule is set to "Text Color". Then on the pages where I need to override that with White, I simply use a Character Style. When the text turns white due to the character style, the paragraph rule updates to white accordingly.

    In APub, I see that instead of Paragraph Rules we use Decorations. However there is no way I can see to set the Decoration to inherit the Text Color. This is forcing me to create two sets of Paragraph Styles just to control that single line.

    Is there a way to make a check box that tells APub to color the decoration according to the text color?

    Should that be the normal way? Should negative numbers be possible? 

    Personally I prefer the way InDesign handles this part of things, but that's probably because that's what I'm used to. I find the [No Change] indicators somewhat confusing as Jim_A described. I was just saying there is a way to get back to the No Change setting. Maybe I misunderstood that part of your response

    I hope this works for you. I've included a duplicated version of the problematic file, along with the fonts. In case something goes awry, I've made a little screen recording of the behavior so you can see what is happening.

    Base font is Baskerville Regular (the Serif font you see in the screen cap)

    It's meant to change the initial words to Baskerville Bold, and make them all small caps.

    Unexpectedly, it changes the font to URW Dock (the Sans Serif you see in the screen cap)
