  1. How do I change the stroke colour on Frame Text? It comes up by default in one of my swatch colours, but it is the wrong colour. There is no option in the Stroke palette to change the colour. Richard
  2. Ah of course. Should've spotted that! Thanks for the swift response
  3. In Publisher, I have placed an image into a Picture Frame. I ant to be able to stretch the image (i.e. increase its size in one direction but not proportionally all round). I have tried selecting Lock Children, as the instructions suggest, but I can't find a way to stretch the image. In InDesign it's easy, so I'm assuming there is a way?
  4. I want to move and resize an image within its frame, without altering the frame size. The manual says to do this by Selecting "Lock Children" from the context menu when the frame is selected with the Move tool. But... no "Lock Children" option is visible. Where is it?
  5. Thanks Walt, that's very helpful. I now understand how this works. Richard
  6. Hi Markw, Thanks for picking this up. It's Publisher I'm using. I have a wide monitor, so plenty of space for the context toolbar to show Lock Children. But the last item I get is Concert to Curves. Locked Children should appear after that, but doesn't, as you see below...
  7. If I select some text, then go to Text>Size and select Bigger, Smaller, Precise Bigger or Precise Smaller, the text changes as expected. But if I use the shortcut keys show by each of those menu options, nothing happens, except that the selected text now becomes deselected. The size does not change with the shortcut key - only by using the menu. This makes changing font sizes incrementally very tedious!

    Affinity Publisher (1.7) Launch Announcement

    Delighted to see Publisher here at last - and the integration of the three programs is awesome! BUT... it doesn't open InDesign files. For me, that's crucial, as I have hundreds of them that I re-use for new projects. Will this feature be added? Then at last we would have real competition for Adobe, and I could say goodbye to the very expensive Creative Suite subscription... Richard
