  1. Is there a way to create a radial gradient that progresses from the edge inward instead of a center point outward? Please note, I am not looking to create a glow effect.
  2. Stop workspace from repositioning left each time a row is deleted. For that matter prevent the workspace from moving at all unless directed by the user. Also, when changing column widths hide text instead of squashing it.
  3. Current build 1.7.0.277 crashed when resizing table column. The column became too narrow, and when attempting to widen, AP crashed. Having a crash report submission or popup would be a good idea in any software.
  4. Thanks for the assist. I think this will work for now as a placeholder. I will likely be creating a custom asset for the box later.
  5. WOW, thanks for going the distance there.
  6. Yep, just figured out that the series of boxes is the stroke location around the text. It became apparent when I hovered over the boxes. There is no real sample document. I am just working through the setting in the Text Styles and observing what happens. In this instance, I just made a text box, inserted filler text and began applying styles to see what they looked like.
  7. So my next question is; if I want to change the "BOX" decoration is my only option to create an asset in Designer and use it with body text placed inside it?
  8. OK, so the stroke on the outside of the "box" is not cut off, just not present. Changing the stroke setting does not add a stroke to all side either.
  9. I understand that. What I am asking is that when applying the sample BOX style to text the "BOX" is outside the text frame. I have tried to adjust the settings in the decorations window, but nothing seems to be happening. I have looked through the help menu, but there is nothing that provides a decent explanation of how to work with or manipulate this particular style.
  10. Is it supposed to be the default that when applying the Box text style that the "Box" decoration is outside a text frame?
  11. +1 on this and good to hear that it is in process. I just saw a video of a document created in Illustrator that uses hyperlinked tabs in the exported PDF. Unfortunately, this is in a private FB group. https://www.facebook.com/groups/492397951097039/permalink/800004677003030/
  12. It's an opportunity cost thing; the more time I spend getting the font right myself and learning Font Creator, the less time I spend working on learning AP. Don't get me wrong, FC looks to be helpful. I don't know how much time I want to devote to this sub-skill before I even learn how to use AP for its intended purpose.
  13. Currently, that is what I am doing. I have a separate window open with the glyphs in "as best I can" adjusted position. Then I bounce back and forth between them.
  14. Well, OK, yes that is from where the font came. Some of the people who produce the fan material are using AI so that they might correct the font in the document, don't know. As for how I will be using it; much in the same way. There is a new book coming out next month that I will be using for the Genesys RPG system. Right now I am just copying and pasting material into AP so that I can use it to practice layouts, mess with styles, layers, groups, text flow, justification and in general learn to use AP properly as well as understand what it takes to do layout work. For example, to achieve the colored die shapes I colored and outlined their glyphs in a key. Unfortunately, I have to copy paste them to use them as well. I download a trial version of Hogh-logic Font Creator, but I was lost. The files below are the ones that I am currently experimenting with; they probably look like a hot mess, remember, I am new to this whole thing and just getting started. The whole process is kinda fun and interesting. If anything it gives me a new appreciation for those that do this kind of work. Android_Fan_setting.afpub Genesys-cheat-sheet_Final.afpub
  15. This is the font. It might have been fan created and is used for fans to create non-commercial material. https://www.dropbox.com/sh/8nq0741b41palgu/AAAQoXvkOUmL58cY7FQj6mVLa?dl=0. I don't know enough about font making to be able to manipulate it so that when inserted the center of the symbols is on center with the line of text it is inserted into.
