    Publisher beta - closing down

    Windows 10 Pro Beta version 249.Experiencing quite a few crashes (program shutting down), especially when switching pages or scrolling through the document. This happened with a 32 page document but also with a 12 page document. Both documents contain a lot of pictures - Embedded in the 32 page, Linked in the 12 page.
  2. I've encountered that same problem in version 249. I have the feeling that there were previous versions that handled tables better (on windows). Also experiencing quite a few crashes, especially when switching pages or scrolling through the document.

    You're absolutely right, Walt. I should have been more clear. Thank you for your help. It's true that the program is very complete and impressive allready. In hindsight I'm glad Affinity didn't rush things and delayed the release of publisher a few times. Just a little bug here and there, nothing major.

    And then, when the answer turns out to be so simple, one feels a bit like a boob... Thanks for the help.

    Hello Walt, In the previous version, when i got into the text frame, the "tab" slider showed on top of the frame. In this newer version it appears this is not the case anymore. Do I need to change a setting or something? I now use the Tab Stop in the "paragraph" menu, but i like the visual slider.

    Hello, It seems like text "Tabs" aren't available in version 162. It worked perfectly in the previous version. Am I doing something wrong?
  7. Hello Carl123, Having tried on both platforms I can confirm that it does work in the Windows (version 157), while it doesn't on the mac (version 162) OS Sierra 10.12.6. (P.S. I've tried to use punctuation, spelling and grammar as sparingly as I possibly could...)
  8. Hello, Thank you for your reply. The "properties" method certainly helps, but isn't exactly doing what I meant. I've been doing this a lot in Indesign and it's a real timesaver for example when updating brochures with new images etc. When i have a certain image cropped and rotated in a shape for ex. i just drag in the updated image and it just takes over all the properties of the previous image. It's a handy feature, but in no way a dealbreaker though. I'm sure there's a handy workaround in Publisher. I'm about ready to make the full Adobe-Affinity switch.

    opening pdf's

    Hi JFisher, Thank you for your response. Sadly I have to report it still doesn't seem to work. Tomorrow I'll try the PC version. Thanks again
  10. Hello, I'm using beta at the moment. While with previous versions I was able to open pdf's, this functionality seems to not work in this version. I use desigener as a workaround but it would be nice if this functionality could be restored for the next version.
  11. I have a question: In a specific case i have some illustrations or diagrams in different laguages, saved as images. So now i have to make the same page layout in several languages. When I replace a scaled image in my original layout with an identical one in a different language, using the "replace image" button, I loose the scaling. I would like to keep the scaling and positioning of the original image. Is there a way to achieve this?
  12. Thank you so much! What a great feature! The text wrap thing is there as well: fantastic. I simply didn't know. You guys rock! P.S. 1. Ive noticed thet when I place a PDF file (from a customer for example - like i sometimes do in indesign) into a layout, the appearance of that pdf changes (fonts, diappearing images...). For now I've been changing those pdf's into images, but it would be great to be able to place PDF's just as they are. Any solutions for this? 2. Any idea when Dutch might be added to the language list? I know some people have found a way by integrating libreoffice libraries, but so far I've been unsuccessfull.
  13. Hello, I was looking for this earlier today. It's obviously available in designer, but does it also exist in Publisher? Thanks.
  14. Hello. Here's my small contribution on the topic: I've tried to get it to crash on purpose by using multiple shapes and image formats (jpeg and tiff). No luck so far. I do have trouble finding consistency in the manipulation of images in a shape (scaling etc)
