  1. Anyway, nice example for german language insanity you picked there
  2. @Alfred Max consecutive hyphens is not about hyphens´╗┐ in one word, but consecutive lines in a column that end with a hyphen. And yes, having a text with lots of those "nice" long german words can lead to a column needing more than 20 consecutive lines that end with a hyphen.
  3. Agreed, usually you would try to avoid them. But I also do some newspaper-like layouts (with loooong columns), where it's not about aesthetics so much. Since the text is given by the client, more than 20 consecutive hyphens may happen (especially in German language). Rare, but possible. As I said, a value of 0 seemed to mean "infinite". It just isn't saved. I may be wrong, but I think this worked in a previous beta.
  4. Ok, that's one way to solve this How would I set the maximum consecutive hyphens to "infinite" then? Setting it to 0 did the job quite well.
  5. When applying Layer Effects from the Styles panel, properties like Radius seem to depend on the initial size of the object, even if Scale with Object is not checked. Is this intended behaviour? How would I create a layer effect (e.g. drop shadow) that always has the same radius, no matter what size the object initially has?
  6. Just noticed that setting Max consecutive hyphens to 0 (zero) in a text style is not saved with the document. Not sure, but I think this once worked in a previous beta.
  7. Sorry to bring this up again, but I think Apply [Style] Then Next Styles is still broken. At the end of the video above the cursor is placed on the description text, but in the Text Styles panel "Year" is still selected and the summary box above reads "Year + Font: Roboto ...". So in fact the description text is basically the Year style + some variations to make it look like the Description style. The "real" Description style is never applied. Try changing the Description style afterwards in the above example. The appearance will not change as I would expect.
  8. Exact same problem here since the first beta. So at least this behaviour is consistent I guess as long as ICC profiles written by Publisher have the "wrong" MD5 checksum the preflight will fail. You could add the wrong checksum to your preflight profile so it stops complaining. However, your printshop may still complain then.
  9. I just found out what is causing the menu change for me. It's not selecting the Text Styles Panel, but changing the Keyboard shortcuts in preferences. I have saved my preferred keyboard shortcuts in a file. As soon as I load this file the menu changes. Resetting the keyboard shortcuts also resets the menu back to Publisher's menu. Loading the file again the menu changes. Reproducible every time. I attached the buggy shortcuts file. buggy.affshortcuts
  10. I have both Affinity Photo and Affinity Designer installed, but none of them were open. Only InDesign, Publisher and Safari. When the menu switch occured I was playing around with the Place Image Tool and Picture Frame Tool. No RAW files, just JPGs. However, I am not able to reproduce it.
  11. I had the same problem twice and still trying to reproduce this with no luck. But i did essentially the same as @icreate ... switching back and forth between Indesign, Publisher and (in my case) Safari to watch the tutorial videos. Maybe this helps to narrow down the problem.
  12. A workaround I found is to create the master page as single page. You can then drag the master to either the left or right page of a spread.
  13. Cool. Thanks for this tip. Maybe they don't know about this either, as @MEB mentioned in another thread that it's currently not possible.
