  1. The SVGs display correctly if I bring them back into Sibelius (the software used to create them). They also display correctly in Chrome, Firefox, and Microsoft's two web browsers, IE and Edge.
  2. Couldn't quickly find the original example, but here's another which shows the identical dashed octave line (SVG attached as well): Dotted Line Example_0001.svg
  3. Oh strange. But yes, that looks correct. Although the dashes don't look perfectly even (also those dashes look a little too narrow)... let me try that upload again. I'll post a screen shot too.
  4. I uploaded a new SVG, a PNG image of it, and the fonts requested. Thanks for looking into it. By the way, Sibelius just made Helsinki its default music font, so there will be a lot more people using this in the near future.
  5. The Postscript driver seems to have fixed it. Many thanks!
  6. Thanks for the replies. Its looking like this is a printer issue after all. I output as PDF and printed in another program where it now consistently prints every 1st page upside down every other time I print a batch of pages. Tried a slightly older PCL6 driver (was on the latest) with the same results, I'll try the last Postscript3 driver next.
  7. I believe I've found a bug within Publisher (Windows) when printing in booklet format. The first printed spread seems to always come out upside down. It's not always the first spread, but the first printed spread. In other words if you print all odd spreads in a document, the first printed will be upside down. When printing all even spreads, again, the first printed will come out upside down. Same when printing in reverse order, everything comes out right side up except that first spread to come out of the printer. I don't think it's possible that this is a printer issue.

  9. Thanks very much for the workaround. This will work in my case, though I agree the issue feels like a bug.
  10. Update: So just to follow up, I ended up embedding all the SVG files in my project, 250+. The result is it now takes nearly 2 minutes to initially load the project, and another 25 seconds before the CPU quiets down and it completes loading everything it needs. When everything was linked there wasn't much initial loading time at all, but things continued to load for a while in the background (without much noticeable performance hit), so I'm guessing the total time was likely similar. Anyway, the result is Publisher is much more stable than before. I can easily live with the 2.5 minute loading time. I think this may point to a potential problem with the way Publisher is handling linked files however, but I have no idea what that might be. And of course it would be nice if the loading could be made more efficient, it seems to be very CPU intensive, very light on everything else.
  11. So I've had issues getting Publisher to display PDFs of sheet music correctly. Many work, but many don't. So I've been using SVGs instead, which so far have been more reliable. However, Publisher, and also Designer, consistently fail to properly display horizontal dashed lines (octave lines). These SVGs display correctly in other software, so I'm assuming this is an Affinity issue. Example attached. Dashed lines should contain much shorter dashes, and many more of them. 031.0 Can you C it (all Cs)_0002.svg
  12. What's the logic behind using Shift+click to select multiple objects on a page in Publisher rather than using Ctrl+click? Ctrl+click works as expected in the layers panel, so it seems a bit odd...
