    postmadesign got a reaction from DM1 in Swatch import on iOS apps!   
    I really need to be able to import swatches in the iPad apps, and I can find no logical reason not to have this feature. I can import brushes, fonts, symbols, assets, but not swatches? It is essential when working with color to be able to import a palette with specific characteristics. On the desktop it is so easy to do, but on the iPad it is impossible... 
    Also I considered creating a swatches set myself from an imported image, but this required so much back and forth, clicking and opening menus it was a nightmare and I gave up after 4 colors.
    Please implement importing swatches soon.

    postmadesign got a reaction from Joachim_L in Please change table behavior   
    I would like to suggest a change to the way tables work in APub. As it is now I can set an exact value for the width of a column, but when I enlarge the table by dragging the handle on the right, all column widths are changed evenly. However I would want for the widths of the columns to be retained, especially when I set an exact value. In my opinion there needs to be the option at least to resize responsibly (as is the case now) or not. I am used to the way Indesign handles it, and it is just much more precise and easy to use. 
    The same problem also occurs when I want to add a column in the middle of an existing table: instead of the columns to the right of the inserted column moving to the right, all columns are resized. This is just very annoying and I want an option to fix the width of a column, at the least when I have set exact values for the width.
    I am all for new solutions, but the solution for tables just does not make much sense to me most of the time.

    Jon, the problem is, I would think, that Paste without format simply doesn’t work in this situation. But I would highly recommend that it should, given the fact that the respective menu item isn’t greyed out. 
    Hmm … that’s unfortunate. I am currently not sitting at my computer, but I believe to remember that this automated scaling of the column width is taking place even when you manually set a width for a column. If I am not mistaken at this point, this behavior is highly undesirable. Please log a feature request then.

    This is not entirely true. You can always go ahead and create a table format with different cell styles, including different text styles (character and paragraph styles).

    postmadesign reacted to abarkalo in Affinity Publisher Customer Beta - 1.7.2.420   
    I wrote an earlier note about my preference to keep using the MAS versions and have more frequent updates, and to use the betas only as new features not as bug fixes. I think maybe it was perceived a bit negatively and that was far from my intent. I love all the Affinity products and even like using the betas but my preference was to have more regular updates on the MAS and Affinity store versions. 1.6.x to 1.7.x took a year and the betas were the more useful versions, and the different file formats created a slight mess on my end.  All this is just a slight complaint to be overcome by the massive increase in productivity you have given my design life.
    Right now there are three products, and with StudioLink it almost seems a Boolean multiple of nine versions - Photo Beta editing in Publisher or Publisher Beta - but I know you guys have it better organized than that as there are really two systems, Photo Beta/Designer Beta/Publisher Beta and then the store group.  We are just waiting on Designer Beta so that the beta system works all intact.
    But let me offer another suggestion here - if I am to now use the beta system of apps can you guys make it easier to export all settings to the betas. Right now in Photo I have many groups, thousands of brushes and macros etc, and I have to export each group one by one.  Also I cannot export the presets that I have spent a lot of time creating them from LUTs (also would love to batch import LUTs as presets perhaps).  I can export Macros and colors and I believe keyboard shortcuts (not sure on this one).  To summarize, there is a lot of work to bring everything I have imported and customized into the beta. Can there be an auto import tool for all these settings and assets?  This would really help in transitioning to the beta because right now I haven't done this as it is too much work.

    I hope the team is working on a fix for the various issues with the tables.
    Copy and pasting from programs Excel adds empty rows and columns Pasting text from other apps as non-formatted text only takes the formatting from the top left cell for the whole table, not from the individual cells. These two issues make working with tables quite troublesome at the moment.

    postmadesign reacted to AdrianB in How can I open Indesign (indd and idml) Files in Publisher?   
    Did you look at the page? You don't script anything, it's all in one dialog where you choose your settings.
    The only thing you need to do is add the script to the correct folder. This page has a very clear and helpful instruction of how you do that for a Mac user (but don't download the script from that page, it's a much older copy, take the script from the original source).
    You don't get a list of the files but it exports them in the same folder as the original, that's is what I was testing and it works. Make sure to check the "include subfolders" and leave the output empty. It's all very clearly described, again, just read the instructions (my emphasis) : 
    Tick Include subfolders to process all subfolders of the selected folder. To keep the converted files in the same folder as the source files, leave the Output folder field empty. If you do specify an output folder and include subfolders, all files are placed together in that output folder.
     Really, it's an amazing script, just try it yourself on some test files first, until you get the results you want.

    postmadesign reacted to AdrianB in How can I open Indesign (indd and idml) Files in Publisher?   
    Since support for IDML is coming, but not .indd, I looked into the possibility to export all my old .indd files to IDML. This is generally useful for future-proofing anyway, since I won't be able to run my old version of InDesign (CS5) forever.
    I'm happy to report that this script was really good, it did everything I was hoping for. There was some trial and error and some issues (I have to delete batch_convert.txt for every run) to get there but eventually I got it to search folders and subfolders for any .indd file and export it as IDML, and it worked.

    Maybe there needs to be an option for some of the automatic fields to have a "format" selected - for things like "Created" that would allow selections like "Date with 24-hour time", "12-hour time with seconds", etc.; for Filename it could offer options with and without the extension (or extension only for that matter?)...

    postmadesign reacted to Trevor J Richens in 1.7.0.384 - copy paste = increase height of cell   
    I found I had this issue a short while back.
    I'd been updating the versions as they had been released.
    Found that when I uninstalled, deleted the AppData folder for Publisher in my user folder, and then re-installed as new the problem went away.
    However it has re-appeared in 1.7.376 so I have just uninstalled that version and re-installed the 1.7.384 version.
    And... it's still broken but...  try this...
    Create your table and enter text into a cell.
    Now double-click the cell to select the contents and paste into another cell. It should cause the height of the bottom row to increase.
    Delete the pasted text - keep the text that was in the first cell.
    Now select the text by highlighting the text characters with the mouse, then copy and paste into a new cell.
    For me this doesn't cause the cell height to increase.
    it "looks" like the first method is picking up some sort of non-printing character that causes the last row of cells to "go bananas" when it's pasted into another cell.

    So although clearly broken, maybe this will work for you??

    This bug has been eradicated a while along and now it has reappeared again (regression).
    I think what's happening is that when you double-click the cell to select its contents you also select the end of cell character and then when you paste it to another cell it copies that as well and the table get's corrupted.

    Hi,
    We are pleased to announce that Affinity Publisher build 384 (RC1) is now available as a download from the link above. To be notified of further updates please press follow on this announcement thread.
    We are very happy with Affinity Publisher 1.7 and are moving towards the final stages for launch, but would still urge some caution with respect to using this version for critical work as it is still possible we may have missed something that may cause you issues.

    We hope you enjoy the product, and as always, if you've got any problems installing or running up, please don't hesitate to post in this thread. 
    Any problems actually using this version please make a new topic in this forum and we'll get back to you as soon as we can. Please feel free to leave general suggestions and comments in the Discussion Forum. 
    Many thanks for your continued feedback.

    You need to lift the two fingers before lifting the pencil. Alternatively start by tapping pencil to create a selection node. Drag the node to create a line. Drag the line to create shapes covering the nodes..
