  1. For some reason the Alignment, Transform and Arrange tools on the toolbar are grayed out when I select multiple objects to align or distribute in this 1.9.0.822 (Windows 10). However, if I switch to Designer persona while objects are selected, suddenly these tool icons on the become usable. if I switch back to Publisher persona it still works suddenly. Then when I select objects again in Publisher persona the icons are once again grayed out.
  2. I think having a dedicated Guide Tool as in Serif PagePlus with the same capabilities would help. It will also ensure that one can select Guides easily even in an area with objects. (See video:

  4. I would really like to be able to select multiple guides and distribute and move them like in Indesign. Also the ability to select a guide and changes its position in the transform panel like Indesign does, thus not using the guides manager. Also maybe a hotkey to select a guide e.g. alt+click. In Indesign it is sometimes difficult to select a guide if an object is located in the same spot. I think having a dedicated Guide Tool as in Serif PagePlus would help. It will also ensure that one can select Guides easily even in an area with objects. See also the following posts: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/78641-nudge-guides-with-arrow-keys/

  7. Thanks, this now makes sense as I do not belief the selector rotates in Indesign. I could find no explanation in Affinity Publisher's help system.
  8. Thanks for the quick responses, so if I understand correctly the white point would be the reference point for only the rotate and shear in the Transform panel whereas the bigger square would be the reference point for the x, y, w and h values? If so I still thing it would have been be better to have one reference point and that one can change the reference point for shear and rotate as well.
  9. I would like to find out what does the white anchor point (top-left) means? I understand that the bigger square indicates which anchor point of an object is selected but the fact that 2 anchor points is "highlighted" (one white and one bigger) confuses me. I am used to Indesign CS6 where only one point is highlighted.
  10. That was because all the Type 1 fonts were shortcuts added via NexusFont font manager. I will do some testing to see if I can pinpoint the issue ... It was just very interesting that up to version 531 everything worked and after that I started having problems.
  11. I have managed to now open Affinity Publisher. What I have done to open Affinity Publisher is to remove all Type 1 (Postscript) fonts as well as any shortcuts from my c:\windows\fonts folder. I uses NexusFont to manage my fonts. Instead of copying the actual font over to the fonts folder it rather places a shortcut in the folder. Thus the problem seems either that Affinity Publisher does not support Type 1 (Postscript) fonts or does not seems to work with placing shortcuts in c:\windows\fonts folder. Do you know if Affinity Publisher does support Type 1 fonts?
  12. I have uploaded the fonts folder as requested. I do use NexusFont as font manager and uses both postscript as well aas TTF/OTF fonts. As mentioned previously version 1.8.0.531as well as Photo and Designer 1.8.0.526 seems to work fine, all versions after that seems to be problematic.
  13. I have attached the last crah report as requested. Also on occation I did manage to open version 1.8.0.549 it also seems that half of the fonts was missing, but reinstalling version 1.8.0.531 all fonts were fine. 9faea55a-3f97-4613-ba06-3c9399a57696.dmp
  14. I have managed to install Publisher 1.8.0.549 but it does crash before it is finished loading. I had this problem with version 1.8.0.535 as well as Photo and Designer 1.8.0.532. Attached find the the details from Event viewer. I am running Windows 10 with the latest updates. Affinity Error Events.evtx
  15. Is there any chance that this can be implemented? Collapsing studio panels to icons like in Adobe Indesign. Some of the panels (like text frame or Paragraph) contain so many options that it would be preferable to work with one panel at a time.
