  1. That is correct @Dazmondo77; I apologize that that wasn't clear in the first post.
  2. Hello, I love Affinity Publisher, but something that would be really helpful is if the font manager that opens when a document or PDF has missing fonts had a "search" function (i.e. when looking for a substitute font you could search, or type in a letter, of one you're looking for, and all of the options would come up). It would save a lot of time scrolling to get to the correct one. Thank you!
  3. I posted the issue elsewhere and found the answer I needed. This one was at the end of the document, so I needed to check the box that said something like "include entries before the TOC." Thank you!
  4. Actually, that's exactly the problem. Thank you for the recommendation.
  5. Hello Dominik, Thank you for the feedback. Where is that option located again?
  6. Hello, I have previously created tables of contents in many documents using paragraph styles with no issues. It's a great feature. However, when I attempted today, in every single document I tried, I receive the error "No table of contents entries found." I even attempted to created a new table of contents in a document that already has one, and the same error came up (I do have all of the appropriate paragraph styles "checked" on the left TOC sidebar). It would, however, update the existing table of contents. What do you think the problem is? I would love some help with this. Thank you!
  7. That's excellent, thank you. So it is a matter of finding the correct font/glyphs. Is there a Mac version of Wingdings? Thank you!

  9. Hello, I would like to create a checklist. I was thinking that an easy way to do that would be to create a bulleted list where the "bullets" are actually check boxes. In trying to do that, I'm coming up a little short - the glyphs I have found that are somewhat checkbox-looking, Publisher doesn't seem to want to recognize as text that's appropriate for a bullet. (I hope that makes sense.) Do you guys have any thoughts or other work around suggestions? Thank you!
  10. Hello Walt, Alfred solved my problem. The textured brushes are actually raster brushes, I probably just referred to them incorrectly. Thank you!
  11. Hello, quick question. After I draw a line and apply a raster brush style to it, how do I change it back to a vector brush? Is there a way to do that? Thank you!
  12. Ahh yes, that makes sense. If I'm in Designer (or the Designer persona) in the brushes panel, how can I tell if it's a vector brush? Are any of them vector brushes? I thought I saw a "vector brush" option earlier, but now I don't see it. Are any of them vectors besides those? Thank you!
  13. Hello, I am noticing that in Publisher and Designer you can't expand a stroke when it has certain brush presets (which is a shame, because I really like the one I'm using). What does it have to be set at to be able to expand it? Thank you!
  14. Thank you @MEB! Once again, super helpful. And that probably explains why it worked sometimes and not others (I didn't realize I had to press down, and move the handles while keeping my finger pressed). I appreciate all of your help! (And I'm once again super excited about how great these apps are - and the phenomenal customer service as well) 😁
  15. Okay, I have another question. I tried that concept on an existing curve, and it worked a few times, but not every time - I'm not sure what I'm doing differently. How do you make a sharp curve when you've already drawn it? (I tried it in and out of edit mode, and it only worked those few times.) Thank you!
  16. That's very helpful. Thank you @MEB! It worked!
  17. Hello, I was using the pen tool on Affinity Designer on iPad, and I was trying to draw a curve with a sharp point, and I couldn't figure out how. I then found a tutorial showing me how using the one finger gesture (place and hold one finger on the iPad while adjusting the handles so that s sharp point is made.) Excited to find that tip, I went to try it. It didn't work. Every time I drew a curve and pressed my finger while I adjusted the handle, it would just delay a bit and place another point where the tip of the handle was. Am I doing something wrong?
  18. Hello Stokerg, I actually posted this same problem under a different heading here, and they seemed to be able to replicate it. Thank you for your assistance!
  19. @Old Bruce and @Gabe, thank you for your considerations. I appreciate it. @Gabe, that solution seemed to be a good patch.
  20. Attached is the file. Do you need the fonts also? Thank you! DF_Don't_Fall_Book_copy.afpub
  21. Hello, I'm not sure if this is a bug or not, but if you look at this image, you'll see that I increased the font size of items 20, 21, and 22 (it needs to be a large print book). Items 23 through 28 are the correct format, so I thought it would be okay to manually increase the size and then redefine the style. But when I did, it seems that Affinity Publisher added a tab stop between the the initial number and the description as well as between the description and the page number. If you look at the second tab stop image, you will see the text ruler with no indication of where the new tab stop starts/ends. Is there a reason for this? How do I remove it? Thank you for your help in advance!

  23. I'm uploading now. I typically use a preset I created, but it doesn't work even when I use the (for print) preset.
  24. Hello, I'm so excited about the new Publisher update. But unfortunately, it seems that the first table (first picture) only exports the lines seen in the second picture - when I export single pages or spreads. It worked fine before. Is there a setting that's supposed to be checked?
