  1. I am working on a pet project using Publisher, and this is more of a question than a bug report. When doing the layout of the text in a box, I am currently using some SVGs as symbols for dice in a game. These are set up as assets for this document. So the text is typed in then I make space for the SVGs. There are some questions though as to how I can make this faster or improve the workflow. So here we go. Can you make colored glyphs and load them in the glyph browser? If not then? Is there a way to embed or have the glyphs "locked" to the same layer as the text so that when moving a text box, the text and SVGs move together? Also, is there a more natural way to ensure that the SVGs and the text are better aligned horizontally?
  2. Have I ever said how much I appreciate the work the team is doing? If not, keep on rocking with the development.
  3. All guides are visible and this issue seems to be intermittent. Sometimes it happens and then it doesn't

    Table Troubles

    I keep forgetting about the studio, thanks for the reminder.
  5. Guides appear when dragged out but only show in the ruler and not on the page.

  7. As my comfort level with using my Adesso drawing tablet is nearing its top level I am looking to move to a graphics monitor. I have been using AD, AP and APub quite a lot and have been moving along at a good pace. So, the (shopping season) time is drawing near and I want to advance to the next level. I want to draw on the screen with a pressure sensitive pen. I am not a pro user and not looking into getting a Cintiq, so what are the alternatives? If you are using something other than the top line what are you using and what has been your experience?
  8. Please improve the print preview window by increasing the size of the page preview.
  9. When I open the Grids and Axis Manager window, it is so large that the upper part of the window is off the screen and I am unable to click and drag it out of the way. In doing so, this obscures my workspace so that I can barely see what the change in spacing is.
  10. That's great, not sure why it went off screen Thursday. Today I am not having that issue. Next time I will post a screenshot.
  11. Would love to...(opens the Beta) and not an issue today. No idea why it happened on Thursday and is not happening now. I did not change my resolution or zoom settings. Must have been a NOOB error. Next time something is going on, I will be sure to post a screenshot.
  12. Please provide a Hexagon shape. Sorry, found the options in the polygon tool.
  13. Agreed, it's also well worth the time to spend more time working with the software, lol. I have been working overnight for the past few days and just now got back to a day shift. UGH, definitely makes practice and learning a bit of a challenge.
  14. Ya, it's been a few days and I brain farted. I looked for a way to delete my post after I found it but could find no delete post either. Perhaps I need more coffee this morning, LOL.
  15. I have been using the Affinity software for about three months now both doodling and with the workbooks. I have learned a lot from the various channels and users of the software on YouTube and appreciate their diving into some of the more intricate uses of the various tools. While I enjoy the rabbit hole that is YouTube and other online resources I was wondering if there is any chance that a more technical book diving into the software and tools will likely be produced?
  16. Before the Publisher Public Beta - 1.7.0.133 update both the text box linking and eye icon were blue when text was pasted into the frame. Now they both appear red and I can no longer link text boxes to get the text to flow from one into another. Anyone else have this issue?
  17. An uninstall and reinstall appears to have resolved the issue.
  18. I wanted to post this to ask, before I get started working with AP what are some solid resources for someone new to DTP to learn about producing both printed and PDF works? I know and understand that AP is just a Beta package right now. For that reason my comments or suggestions about its improvement are covered by the more professional users here. So far, my experience has been positive, if a bit fumbling at times. I understand that documentation directly related to AP will come later. My stumbling blocks right now have more to do with understanding the jargon used in the publishing field. I have written a few pieces for an independent publisher in the tabletop gaming industry but, these were simply word documents laid out in advance. I just added text in the appropriate places. Now I find myself in the position of doing the whole thing from scratch and wow, there is so much to learn and understand.
  19. OK, very strange. Today I went through the same process of copy/paste into AD. Then went to the print dialogue box that shows the preview window. Guess what, today it fits to the page. I am unsure what I did differently, if anything. The preview shows that it fits into the page. Yesterday when the dialogue box appeared I needed to keep resizing what I had pasted into an AD document to get it to fit. So I am not sure why today when I did the same steps that it now shows that it fits.
  20. So, we tried inserting text and using the overflow and two things are happening. 1) The text appears in the first box, when clicking the eye icon, all the text disappears, not just the overflow text. 2) When we try to link two text boxes together, instead of overflowing from one to another, it moves all the text from one box to another. So, we tried creating two pages, with two linked text boxes. When the text is inserted into the first box. It instead appears in the second box. When we tried to link to a third box, it moved all of the text again. We did notice that this does not happen when we are typing directly into the text box, only with the pasted content.
  21. Further experimentation with what is happening shows that; when copying the text without the TOC from the word doc does not cause this to happen. There must be something about how Word formats the TOC that causes this, no biggie, as we can just create the TOC in Publisher.

  23. So far we have only been able to open our PDF files. The majority of what is imported is just fine. However, many of our bigger projects have lots of tables. When we opened one, all of the table entries from the PDF were seen as individual text boxes. This particular project had 15 tables with 175+ total entries across the PDf. If possible, tables need to be seen as tables.
  24. We just tried to save one of our Word docs as both rtf and web page. It is not showing either as an option to open. There are other web pages in the same folder, it shows those but not the one we just saved. Are we overlooking something?
  25. For those of us in the gaming industry (tabletop) we use MS Word quite a lot. There are several plugins that provide better editing power. For example we use both SmartEdit and ProEdit when working on projects. We tried this with one of our PDFs, it worked somewhat. All of the table cells were seen as individual text boxes. With over 15 tables that would be too much to re-edit. I have to agree with the sentiment that importing a Word file is high on the list for us. We are a small group looking to get into DTP and have been holding out for publisher since it was announced.
