  1. I'm finding this with two text tables. If I try and highlight text in one text box, it starts to select another text box somewhere else on the page. Only started happening on the latest version.
  2. Attached. I'm not sure what options I changed (in that I can't remember), but I probably turned off JPEG compression and turned Resampler to Bicubic. Schwanzer AI.afpub Edit: I might have also converted colour profile to CMYK, Coated FOGRA39
  3. I created a PDF flyer on Publisher, exported is as a PDF, and want to place that PDF in a new Publisher document. The PDF flyer contains a TIFF image of the book cover. If I place that PDF into a Publisher document, the TIFF image goes all weird and black and white (see screenshot). I have other PDFs in that include TIFF images, and they seem to place OK, so not sure why this particular PDF / image is causing issues. Screenshot and PDF attached. Thoughts? Schwanzer AI.pdf
  4. If I have 4 separate lines that visually form a shape, is there any way to convert them into one shape? Clicking Combine doesn't seem to work (see screenshots) (The reason I did it this way was so I had an identical curved line on top and bottom (i.e. draw one curved line, then alt drag for a copy) —I'm very new to vector graphics, so tips on an easier way of doing this would also be welcome) Thanks for any advice!
  5. My iMac has updated and restarted since yesterday; opened the same file and tried it again and it seems to be working now. However, I can root out the log files from the system library. Seemingly relevant logs are called: Affinity Publisher Beta_2018-11-21-112808_Mares-iMac.wakeups_resource.diag Affinity Publisher Beta_2018-11-21-113204_Mares-iMac.cpu_resource.diag Affinity Publisher Beta_2018-11-21-113329_Mares-iMac.hang Affinity Publisher Beta_2018-11-21-115349_Mares-iMac.cpu_resource.diag Affinity Publisher Beta_2018-11-21-120713_Mares-iMac.hang Affinity Publisher Beta_2018-11-22-161627_Mares-iMac.wakeups_resource.diag Which ones do you want me to attach? Edit: Oh, and the fonts it initially crashed on was called Akkurat (Bold, Light, and Italic). I then tried again with a few system fonts (can't remember off the top of my head which I picked. It was a random choice) and it crashed with those too. However, now (today) it seems to be working. Perhaps a restart (or the latest Mojave update) helped? It was on a regular page.
  6. If I've made a textbox slightly larger than the text in the box, if I double click on the adjustable node on the frame to get it to auto-resize the frame to the amount of text in the box (see screenshot) it crashes Publisher. Happened twice in a row now. In case it helps, the text box had 3 lines of text, each line had text with a different font. (Edit: Just tested again, it'll crash if there are just two different fonts in the same text box) Version
  7. See screenshot. Brush width seems to be the only adjustable slider that actually applies to the drawn line. Am I missing something obvious?
  8. Don't know whether this is a glitch or a missing feature (if it is missing, please add it!), but if you click-drag to highlight several objects, it only selects certain things (seems to ignore groups and images). This is rather annoying when you quickly want to grab a few objects and move them around. I don't want to group all these objects (or try to find them all in the layers panel and CMD+click to select them all) in order to make the occasional movement adjustment on otherwise separate objects, as it will quickly become a faff to keep grouping and ungrouping things. When I click drag over everything in the screenshot, only the two boxes pointed to with the red line are selected. (The object on the left is a group; a box with a fill colour, and two text boxes). Why are groups and images ignored on click-drag selections? (They're not locked either) Am I missing something? Edit: Made a mistake, it only selects one object at a time, not both boxes, which is even more annoying (it's just that click drag can be used to select either box, whereas it won't select at all an image or group). My bad. Edit 2: OK, sometimes it seems to select both the textboxes, so maybe it's a bit glitchy too.
  9. Ah, thanks for the heads up. Yes, it looks like the issue is sneaky upscaling done for retina displays (which I'm using). For anyone who stumbles across this thread with a similar issue, I found the two comments by st3f and Andrius here to be extremely helpful. @R-CR Preview is set to that setting and is still upscaling the images. Might be a bug in Preview?
  10. So I'm creating an image that has to be set at 800 x 600 pixels, and when I export the image either in JPG (set to best quality) or PNG (PNG sampling is set to bicubic), the result is pixellated and blurred, I don't get what I'm doing wrong. Screenshotting the image of the file opened in Affinity Photo actually creates a much clearer image. (Running the Mac version, if that helps?) Help / advice would be much appreciated! (After uploading these it seems that Preview might be partly to blame? It seems that when you click view 'Actual Size' it's not the actual size of the image on the screen. I'm getting very confused :-/)
