  1. OP here under my work username (as I'm at work). Yes, it's a Surface Laptop 3, the Pro bit was a typo (it's one of these things). No external monitor connected. Yes, it's the colour profiles that are the default on the machine provided by Windows. I haven't altered the colour profiles at all or downloaded new ones (changing from Enhanced to sRGB is the first change I'd made to it - to be clear, the default setting on the Surface Laptop 3 is Enhanced, I had to change the default to sRGB). Let me know if I need to provide more screenshots or I've missed a question! 🙂 Thanks again for a
  2. Having to go into different menus/options screens to keep learning spellings it flags is a bit of a faff. It should be a quick option in Preflight to learn the spelling; or open up the Spelling Options box like it does for Font Manager when it flags missing fonts. Ah, cheers for that. Preflight should flag that it occurs in a placed object and let you know which object it's finding the issue with rather than opening the font manager like that.
  3. Maybe there is a way to do this, but you should be able to tell Preflight to ignore specific things it flags if they're not actually an error (or Publisher is glitching, like in the latter example). For example, it's flagging an email address as a spelling mistake; I don't want to completely turn off spell check to get rid of the message / warning, I just want it to be able to click a button that essentially tells Preflight 'that one's fine'. It also sometimes makes mistakes flagging a missing font; says a font is missing but when you open font manager that font doesn't appear there (screensho
  4. Maybe there's some weird technical reason why it should be like this (maybe caused by the export settings?), but if you put a live filter motion blur on an image, then export the page as a PDF, the motion blur isn't applied to the image. (Trying to upload a screenshot of how the image looks in Publiser but keep getting the error message "There was a problem processing the uploaded file. -200". No idea why.) test.pdf motion blur test.afpub (Below) PDF version: (Above) How it looks in Affinity (i.e. significantly blurrier)
  5. It's just a new document with generic A4 settings. Issue happens every new document. It's just a freshly created text box with filler text, no style applied; arial font, regular, 12pt. Doesn't seem to matter if you adjust the wrap outline before or after the text is inserted. Running Publisher 1.7.3 on Mojave. Example file attached. text wrap.afpub
  6. Brand new document; see screenshots. Am I missing something? I've seen a few previous posts on this issue (and it seemed that there was some issue with the Ignore Text Wrappings setting) but they were for the BETA last year and from the posts it seemed like it had been fixed? Changing to 'Largest Side' and adjusting the Distance from Text doesn't seem to do anything. Any ideas? Edit: The first picture is the actual text frame, the second picture is of the wrap outline Thanks! Sam
  7. Looks like you're right. For some weird reason that page had been set to a various diagonal snapping angles; is there some obscure keyboard shortcut that can set that? Anyway main point is that all's well now :-)
  8. See screenshot. Why on Earth has it suddenly started snapping on a weird axis? Been working on this document a while now and it's just started doing it. Any help would be much appreciated! Sam
  9. See screenshot. Unless I've misunderstood? But it doesn't look like Publisher thinks it's a group.
  10. OK, so one way of causing the issue is if you right click on the image and Rasterise the image when it's in the frame. Sorry, when I mentioned about embedded, I meant as in 'if you download the file I'm uploading, will it include the image or are you just going to get an empty picture box?' (because it's not very helpful of me if you don't get the image in the file as you won't be able to directly see the issue). I believe by default Publisher links to the file rather than embedding it into the document? Typically an X will not show on a picture frame with an image in it regardles
  11. I can't share the original file as it's a confidential company document. However, I copy / pasted the offending picture frame into a new document and it's still weird, so hopefully that should show your end? Also, in the frame properties even though it's set to 'None (Don't scale image)' it will still scale/distort the image when you adjust the frame. Let me know if the image isn't embedded in the file, I'm not sure how to check. Also worth noting that on the Publisher Beta, right clicking on the image does show the option to Convert to Picture Frame (but it's greyed out), but t
  12. Why is the picture frame still showing a big X across the picture? Is it a bug or have I done something wrong? I placed the picture and then dropped the picture into a picture frame because for whatever reason the option to 'Convert to Picture Frame' didn't show up on right click (why is that?) Thanks for your help!
  13. Both colours are set to black when I create the mask and that's the result when I click the Mask Layer button in the layers panel (or Layer / New Mask Layer). Is there a special way of making the mask black that I'm missing?
  14. I'm trying to add a mask to this little grid of crosses and it should be making them invisible, right? But it's not. (I wanted to use a teexture brush to make them visible) The colour is set to black on the mask (tried turning it to white, doesn't seem to do anything). Am I doing something wrong? Thanks for your help!
