  1. You can also use alt-arrow to track whole paras when they're highlighted - the default is to track by 10. InDesign has an option in programme-wide preferences to change the tracking/kerning, I'm wondering if APub has a similar option somewhere? I'm being niggly, it's just something I'd like to change!
  2. Hi, I've been looking for a way to set the default letter spacing on highlighted paras. Alt/arrow tracks in lumps of ten, I can't find any preference feature to set that to five? I know I can adjust manually, but...
  3. Ah, thanks for the info, I didn't know that. I guess I could keep Avenir Next and do a find-and-change to Helvetica just for the non-breaking hyphen. There are some deadeye-dick typographers out there but I'd be surprised if that gets noticed, unless deliberately searched in a PDF. I used to have to do something similar with some of the funkier fonts years ago. APu, APub etc., I see what you mean.
  4. Non-breaking hyphens look fine when using Avenir Next in AP, but they appear as a boxed question mark in PDFs. Not a massive problem, but needs to be looked out for. Is it a bug with the font, AP or is it just my setup? Non-breaking hyphens work fine if making the PDF from InDesign. They come out okay from AP if I use Helvetica instead. Don't know if other fonts go buggy.

    Zapf Dingbats

    Wingdings work okay as well, it seems to be only Zapf dingbats. Unfortunately Zapf Dingbats has all the symbols I use! ITC Zapf Dingbats Std doesn't work either and that's supposed to be a 'real' font. For square bullets, 'n' is the Dingbat key and I can only get that by using Apple Mungo and double-clicking the square bullet in the Mac's menu bar 'Show Emoji & Symbols' panel, so at least I have a workaround, although a tad inconvenient.
  6. Is there (or will there be) a menu command to save palette positions? Or maybe a text file insde the programme I can tinker with. I'm a selfish man and I like it set up my way... flippin' good software so far though.
  7. Zapf Dingbats are showing as 'unsupported characters used' in Font Manager, but they seem to be okay on PDF output. The Locate button only shows the text box, it doesn't highlight the actual text in question.

    MRU menu always blank

    I turned that off back in 2016 in Photo and Designer, maybe it's universal...
  9. I got layers back by going to View > Studio > Reset Studio. I didn't notice until now that Pages had disappeared as well, but all panels have now returned.
  10. The layers panel is missing in this version, it's ticked in the drop-down but doesn't show up.
