  1. Very interesting, Adobe sabotage wouldn't surprise me! My fonts are from CS6, so perhaps Mike has updated versions? Anyway not a big deal since this isn't a Publisher issue after all. Thanks for all the enlightenment everyone.
  2. Not very often, which is why I just discovered the problem. But yes this is definitely not an issue with Publisher, and I can easily use other fonts when needed.
  3. Okay so testing a bit more, it's not all Adobe fonts, but here are some that have the issue I described: Adobe Fan Heiti Std Adobe Fangsong Std Adobe Heiti Std Adobe Kaiti Std Adobe Ming Std Adobe Myungjo Std Adobe Song Std All of these are .otf and have only one font face (which vary font to font, but most are regular). I have two other Adobe fonts with a single font face that don't have the issue described. One is .otf and one is .ttf. None of my Adobe fonts with multiple font faces (or any of my other fonts at all) have this issue. Oh wait a minute... Looks like this is an issue on my end, these fonts have the same issue in other programs as well. Something must have happened to them when I reinstalled Windows 10 a while back. Sorry for the false alarm.

    Superscript taking over text

    Very interesting, thanks. Coming from InDesign I don't have any experience with PagePlus, but I can see how this could be a feature, as you say.
  5. I've noticed that when using certain Adobe fonts (maybe all Adobe fonts?), if I type a contraction, like didn't, a massive space will be inserted between the apostrophe and the following letter. It looks something like this: didn' t Switching to a non-Adobe font fixes it.
  6. Not sure if this is a bug or a feature, but if you type, for example: 1st 2nd 3rd The program will change the 'st' etc., into superscript. However, If you then try to go back and add text after any of the superscript, whatever you add becomes superscript as well. For example adding commas between the above (1st, 2nd, 3rd) results in superscript commas. It's easy enough to leave a space after the superscript and then just delete the space as a workaround. But I'm guessing that might not be intended behavior?
  7. Ah thanks. Yes this does work in the beta (luckily I hadn't saved it again after the problem showed up). Any rough idea when this fix might make it to the standard release? I'm always a bit nervous working in betas.
  8. After digging around more it seems like it is saving my edited brushes, including all adjusted parameters EXCEPT for the pressure curves, which were the most tedious to make. Could this be a bug? I'm using this on Windows.
  9. Within Designer I'm working with vector lines. I've created many custom brushes and applied them to various vector lines. I've created the custom brushes by duplicating existing brushes, and then editing the duplicate's parameters (including tedious work building/adjusting pressure curves). All works as expected, but then after hours of work, I saved the project -- then when I reopened it all of my custom curves had reverted back to some original form, changing all my vector lines with them. The first time this happened I thought I must have somehow forgotten to save the project before editing, and so I spend a couple more hours rebuilding all the custom brushes, only to have it happen again after (definitely) saving! I'm hoping I'm just overlooking something in that process and there's an easy way to get these custom vector brushes back. Any ideas would be appreciated.
  10. There is a replace image button on the horizontal toolbar. But yes, maybe it would be better when using an image in a frame, to have it scale to fit the original image aspect by default (no cropping), then if you held down some ctrl-alt-shift combination it would kick into the current behavior, and perhaps a different key combination would allow you to reposition the image within the current frame. I do think they're onto something here and could definitely improve on how InDesign works.
  11. Slow and inflexible or not, I'd like it either way. Of course if they're able to make the process more efficient all the better. What's the alternative you suggest?
  12. Yes, InDesign is supposed to do it, but it's basically broken. I've always had to export pages and then have Acrobat Pro order them for booklet printing, a pain and required two exports which is always dangerous. If Publisher could do this (it should be easy!) that would be fantastic. It would also be nice if Publisher could add creep (based on page thickness and number of pages).
  13. Coming from InDesign this took some getting used to, but I think Publisher is actually much more intuitive with how it handles images overall. InDesign's use of frames is not especially intuitive. One big difference I noticed with Publisher is the ability to place an image with or without a frame. If you place an image without a frame, it works more like many of you are wishing it would. If you want to crop the image, you can apply a vector crop (nondestructive). For my own work flow I think I would end up placing images without frames most of the time, and with them when I wanted to work very quickly, when absolute precision wasn't required.
  14. When underlining text in a numbered list the numbers are also underlined, whether they are selected or not... most of the time. A few times I managed to only underline the text to the right, but most of the time that didn't work and I have no idea why it worked those few times. Example: 1) One 2) Two 3) Three Usually comes out as: 1) One 2) Two 3) Three Great software though, already superior to InDesign in a lot of ways.
  15. Is it possible to record a macro in the develop persona of Photo? Or is there some way to batch develop a folder full of RAW images using identical settings? Many thanks.
