  1. Thanks again Thomaso. Everything now on Macbook. All issues , including printing solved. Must have all been down to the old OS system on IiMac. Now have to face the upgrade but at least if it doesn't work I have an alternative and a bit of time to get it right. Johnnsin
  2. Hi thomaso, Have established that the text on shape problem definitely stems from my 10.9.5 system as downloaded Publisher on to my wife's macbook (El Capitain) and it works OK. Pity I can't download Photo and Designer but they were purchased when you could only get them from the App store and although my wife and I have the same email address we have different App Store log in numbers. Anyway it looks as if I will have to bite the bullet and upgrade my iMac as you suggested. There seems to be plenty of info on the web to assist with this. Thank you you all the trouble you have taken to help me with this it is greatly appreciated. Jonnsin
  3. Thanks for all the info Thomaso. Might try the upgrade in stages from Yosemite onwards
  4. Downloaded latest publisher upgrade. Can create text on a pen path but no longer on a shape path. Have to force quit as Publisher hangs. Also Publisher still crashes when I try to print on any of a choice of 4 printers. Have to convert to PDF to obtain printed copy I am still on Mac 10.9.5. Reluctant to upgrade OS in case I lose Adobe CS6 as I still use many inDesign files which I cannot do without Jonnsin
  5. Thanks tomaso for PDF advice – jetz ist alles klar. Still a bit wary of upgrading to Sierra. A friend went from Mavericks to Sierra and Photoshop, inDesign etc went all to hell.
  6. Thanks for getting in touch Paul. Regarding PDFs and printing issue. I still use Adobe as I cannot dump CS6 yet. I require press quality PDFs for the commercial printing of a magazine and also "smallest size PDFs of same files for Web. Can I vary the output quality required using Affinity. Also handy if I can convert RGB PDFs to grayscale or can anyone suggest a PDF program similar to Adobe Pro that will work with Mavericks 10.9.5. (no use telling me to upgrade or I will lose CS6 which I need to open old inDesign files).
  7. Affinity Publisher keeps crashing when I try to print. Have tried three printers. Occasionally will print perfectly but sometimes crashes as soon as i click print. It is the only program on my machine that does this. I have an iMac 10.9.5 which I cannot upgrade as I use Adobe CS6 which I am stuck with until I am confident with the Affinity Suite and it works OK. Photo and Designer OK. If I convert to PDF Publisher prints OK. Have attached crash report. Any suggestions. Nothing too technical, I know nothing about programing Affinity Publisher_2019-06-29-135532_johns-iMac.crash
  8. Hi Lee, Publisher still crashing on my iMac when I try to print. Hopefully I have managed to attach a report All Messages.aslquery
  9. Hi Lee, Thanks for getting back to me. I am using OS10.9.5. on an iMac. This is as high as I can go without losing Adobe CS6 which I must hang on to until I am confident with Affinity. Among other things I print a small magazine using Adobe CS6 but this time was going to have a go at producing it with Affinity (all my A/photo and designer elements are fine). All is not lost however. I may have found the cause of the crashing. The text for the article was supplied to me as a PDF (not unusual) but as I was placing into the publisher file there appeared to be odd gaps throughout quite a few of the words. I have a feeling that the PDF file may be corrupted as I have retyped the article and placed it in publisher and so far it is printing fine. All the printer drives are up to date. Must say that I love the whole Affinity experience and all the little extras that I came across in the print tutorial look very promising...and time saving. Do you think that I am right about the duff file? And can I contact you again if the problem has not gone away? John Sinclair
  10. Affinity Publisher almost always crashes when I try to print. Sometimes as soon as I press print, other times it will print but immediately crashes. When I do manage to get a print it is perfect. The printers are an HP Laserjet 1320 and a Brother and a Brother 2070 and a Canon ix6850. I realise that they are in the first bloom of youth but every other file seems to print OK. I am using the Publisher 1.7.1
  11. Thanks for that Alfred. I was concerned that if I upgrade my Mac I would have had problems reinstalling AP and AD
  12. Both AP and AD purchased from Affinity in December 2017. I have not changed Email address since then. Both products have never shown up on my account and did not know that product keys existed until I got one with Publisher.
  13. Have just received product key for Publisher which I have installed. I also have updated Affinity Photo and Designer which I originally purchased through Serif some time ago. I have never had a product key for either of those and although they work fine I cannot see them on my Affinity Account. I do have my Serif order numbers for these if required. Will I require product keys for these two items if I update my iMac? John Sinclair
  14. Many Mac users, including myself, are stuck with Mac Mavericks if they want to continue using Adobe CS6. I have got to grips with Affinity photo and designer and have used them successfully but still have to rely on Adobe Design for desktop publishing. I am sure I speak for everyone in this position when I plead for and early download of Publisher for all the thousands of us who are in a similar position. Jonnsin.
