  1. When you duplicate the page with inlined (pinned) objects on a text path, you get a mess. The procedure is as follows: 1. Create a path. 2. Make it a text path. 3. Create any shape on the page with any shape tool. 4. Copy this shape to clipboard. 5. Paste this shape on a text path multiple times as an inlined (pinned) objects. 6. Duplicate this page. 7. Get a mess.
  2. If to make changes to linked document inside Publisher, and then try to embed this changed linked document, it loses all changes previously done.
  3. Can anybody tell me is there going to be real vector brushes someday and the ability to import Adobe Illustrator brushes? Please..... Don’t make me desperate.
  4. But that is not what designers and artists expect. And aging Adobe Illustrator knows that and does it as we expect it. Why wouldn’t Affinity take the best from it?
  5. Hi, Gabe. I draw a line with a Brush tool. Then i keep it selected by means of a Move tool. Then i change it’s stroke width to my liking. After this I apply to that path a new brush from the Brushes Studio, which ruins my previous stroke weight adjustment. Try to perform the same actions in Illustrator and you'll see the difference, (provided you applied the same brush type - scatter, art and so on).
  6. Thanks for your reply. What i meant is as follows: 1. Draw a line. 2. Assign a brush #1 to it. 3. Tune up it’s stroke weight (doesn’t matter through which menu). 4. Apply to this line brush #2. 5. All previous weight tuning is gone! That is a problem, which is not available in Adobe Illustrator.
  7. Af. Designer’s Brushes Studio doesn’t respect previous brush stroke size. When an artist fine tunes a stroke size and then is going to apply another brush to it for comparison, the stroke size returns to the default one of a new brush.
  8. Type a word. Make it a symbol. Put a few instances of this symbol on a page. In one instance edit the text. All instances are changed accordingly. Now chose one symbol and turn off the sync button for it. Change the color of this symbol. Turn on the sync button for it again. After this editing text doesn’t sync any more. Summary: Changing the color of one text symbol deprives this symbol of ability to text editing synchronization.
  9. The keyboard shortcuts which are a must and common for every other DTP and text processing applications are missing. These are Ctrl+arrow down (up) and Ctrl+Shift+arrow down (up). Ctrl+arrow down (up) should move text cursor from one text paragraph to the beginning of another. Ctrl+Shift+arrow down (up) should select all affected paragraphs. These are the standards and if they are missing it looks very strange and unprofessional and not what people expect from a perfect DTP application.
  10. Hi, Here is the link: https://github.com/freedesktop/libreoffice-dictionaries/tree/master/ru_RU
  11. Turning on auto hyphenation for selected text in Russian causes application to crash (Affinity Publisher Public Beta -
  12. If you want a Publisher to be really competitive, then implement in it ability to auto activate missing fonts, and you will make millions of designers happy. This feature should work similar to the one of Extensis Suitcase Fusion, that is it should engage user’s local disk font collections.
  13. When alignment rule selected other than “Selection bounds”, it does not work when applied through menu “Layer>Alignment” or through the assigned shortcut. Simply put, aligning objects via menu or shortcuts is possible only by the rule “Selection bounds”.
  14. If to select several paragraphs with paragraph style applied to them and there is no word with local formatting in the beginning of the very first selected paragraph but all the words with local formatting are just inside paragraphs, the “Reset Formatting” button is grayed out and there is no “legal” way to remove text local overrides. The way around: you have to intentionally make the very first word of the very first paragraph something like bold or italic then after this the “Reset Formatting” button is active.
