  1. Great! ctrl + W is a great replacement for f10. Not only does away with Touch Bar issues it also seems faster, due to the resting position of my left hand. Thank you! <3
  2. I think F10 is a mistake. Given that MBP have now 'removed' the F keys this becomes a very cumbersome quick access key. Then if we factor in other small keyboards and many laptops having the F keys used in conjunction with an FN keys, I can't see this a good choice. Working on a full keyboard this might be ok, even though still not optimal, as it is not a the extremes of the groupings of 4 F keys, like F9 or F12 would be. I would appreciate some other options. Something like an cmd + any key.
  3. picture frame and place image are the same thing. In the end both serve to place an image on the document. Them behaving differently makes it even more of an issue. Especially if you would have a mix of both in the document and in the end there is no visual cue to differentiate them. The crop tool can be useful, especially when is used to crop multiple placed objects. But in the perspective of an image does the same as the frame itself.
  4. I find it confusing. Basically you have 3 tools for 1 job. Frame, directly placed image and the crop tool. Seems redundant
  5. I hope I didn't come across harsh. I meant it politely. We have different workflows, I believe that the developers benefit from hearing use types.
  6. I do not want to crop the said image. I want to keep one of the dimensions of the picture frame as set prior placing the image and then conform the frame to the image.
  7. I think you are misunderstanding the need. I do not want the image to come to the original size. I would need the frame to conform. The only way would be to place the image directly. But sometimes you know the height of the image or width you want. Then you have a coupe of options for the image you want to place, they are of different aspect ratios. Using scale to minimum fit won't work properly in that occasion.
  8. This actually was very helpful. It was on me. Idk what I was thinking. I went on replicating your thing and tried a few more thing. Two objects that go in the gutter and one that spans over, and it works well. Thank you Eugene! I have though notice something else. In facing pages, the bleed cannot be set separately for inner and outer edge, only left and right. I don't know if that was intentional.
  9. What are you talking about. It is pretty common to set up a book in spread mode with the intention of creating a glue bound book. ID offers gutter bleed. And there is nothing special about this feature. It actually makes more sense to create a book in spreads than single pages. Single page documents brings other issues. If you want to put an object on both spread, you have to put it in the document twice. Let's not forget the whole issue of not being able to see what you are actually creating. I hoped I was missing something and this was actually possible in APub. Since this is not resolved, I think it is fair to point it out. Would be great to get this implemented. I use this kind of placement pretty often, so for me is quite must.
  10. Thanks, yes.. I see now where is the option to print as single pages. Did not notice that. I am still having issue with placing two object on the gutter, both in the bleed. Is there a way to do it? placing them both in the middle 3 mm into the bleed, makes them show on the other page.
  11. The only issue this is still lacking. It is impossible to print a spread - facing pages as a single page pdf and there is no gutter bleed. Something that is very needed for glue binded books.
  12. It might be more intuitive and it kind of makes sense, the image is resized when the frame is resized. But there are occasions when you need to resize the frame and then fit the image. Is not so much the difference in workflow, there is a lack of functionality. Placing frames for the layout and coming back with images is sometimes more suited for the job. As well replacing an image is common. Programs like this have to have options for different workflows, it is impossible to predict all use types of the program. And if a tool (program) is adaptable it way more useful than something with a too rigid structure.
  13. Ok I have now more report on using the picture frame tool. This in my opinion is lacking and needs polishing. After setting up a dummy book I can list annoyances that should be addressed. As I said the frame needs to conform to the content. Now the workflow looks way cluttered. Setting up the image with the frame filled proportionally. Adjusting to fit the page to my liking. If the frame happens to go into bleed, since this has yet not been implemented I have to manually adjust frame size for it. Because any resizing of the frame will change the size of the image as well, I have to first fit the frame to the content, so I can enlarge the frame into the bleed (only one side). This is now done with copying the image size in mm and copy the value to the frame. Then the frame is adjusted for bleed in one dimension. Prior to that I have to set up a guide so I do not loose the positioning. Second issue is that the images get embedded automatically. Because I moved the folders around I cannot simply make them linked, I have to replace every single image and after that make it linked. Here another issue arises the picture frame does not remember the setting I have chosen for it. This means that I have to go to properties and choose again how the image should fit in the frame. Very cumbersome for now. Finally the workflow as is slow as there is no shortcut for any of it. I know I can do my own shortcuts, but I think most of this would be basic functionality hence I would expect pre-made shortcuts.
