  1. Most of the time I just use the touchpad on my MacBook Pro. As far as I know, there's currently no way to simulate a middle mouse click without a third party app.
  2. That's definitely helpful for anyone with a mouse, though not everyone uses one.
  3. I had the same problem. In my case switching personas out of Photo, then opening the Photo app, and then trying the Photo persona again resolved the issue.
  4. On macOS, you can enable split view to have 2 app windows open side by side in fullscreen. To do so, hold down (with force if using a touchpad) on the green fullscreen button of one window (ie. Finder) and drag to the left or right. Then choose the 2nd open program (ie. Publisher) from the selection of open windows. The 2 windows will automatically fill half of the screen each - but you can drag between them to resize horizontally. So you could have a narrow Finder window next to a wide Publisher window in fullscreen. This could be too cramped on a small screen.
  5. A. Do you mean a gradient? With the fill tool (color wheel icon) you can change between none, solid, or various gradient types for both fills and strokes. B. With the transparency tool (wineglass icon) active, you should be able to change the type from none to linear to radial or etc.
  6. When I looked in Gmail, the publisher release email was hiding under the promotions tab. If you haven't received the email yet, and use a gmail account, you might want to check there.
  7. I have the same problem with the touchpad on a MacBook Pro too.
  8. I have that problem occasionally in a couple programs. When there is a problem image, I use Finder or Preview and rotate it completely around - back to the starting/ideal orientation (and save if using Preview). Afterwards, when I open the photo in other programs it always displays properly.
  9. That's fine, personally I wouldn't expect pressing enter to close the window. However, it's irritating when there's one behavior on Windows and another on Mac - unless it is a platform specific standard.
  10. On a Mac laptop keyboard, since it's compact, the enter key is the return key. For programs that treat the two commands as something different, holding down on shift when pressing enter/return gets the enter behavior. However, that has no impact here. So neither return nor enter closes the dialog - no matter how many times you press the key.
  11. Similarly, I had a crash adding a hyperlink through the hyperlinks panel - also on Mojave. In my case, it seems to happen when adding a url to a text box applied with a master. At first it won't let me apply a link. If I've already applied a link to text without a master, then I can try to add a link & get a crash.
  12. Re #2: Are you looking for this? If you click on the line next to outline, you get the normal Affinity stroke options.
  13. I think the 2nd method is something like this: 1. Open your image in Aphoto. 2. With the layer selected, in the Layers menu, click on "Rasterize to Mask" 3. Copy the newly created mask layer (it should look similar to below) 4. Paste the mask layer on a page in Publisher (since it is a mask you won't see the image on the page) 5. Create a rectangle or ect. with your desired color (about the size of your image) and directly over the mask layer 6. In the layers tab, drag the mask layer directly under the shape layer and to the right
  14. You are right - it's the small size of the text box causing the issue. The red dot notifier is helpful, though to turn overflow visibility on/off, I still have to zoom in a lot.
  15. You might want to take a look in Console. Sometimes an app crashes without notification but a crash report is still accessible in Console under "User Reports".
