  1. So I revisited the beta before launch and it's looking great! I noticed that there's still this weird issue with superscript where it's very selective about what characters it'll superscript (or subscript) even on common fonts. I've attached a demonstration file to show what I mean. Fortunately, this seems to have an easy solution– my workaround has simply been to do the superscripting/subscripting in Affinity Designer before importing the text to Affinity Publisher where the format is preserved. In other words, just replace AP's superscript and subscript systems with those of Affinity Designer. I know it's not that easy, just wanted to try and offer a general direction to head in. Thanks! This issue was encountered on MacOS Mojave. noticeMeSenpai.afpub
  2. @Pauls Not sure how I'd be able to do that without causing some kind of system error. In any case, updating to Mojave fixed the issue, though I can't stay on this OS because it's disabled some of my other programs.
  3. @mac_heibu Still broken . It works in safe mode, but even with the cache cleared it crashes on startup once I restart. I have Affinity Photo and Affinity Designer already, and neither of them have this issue. @Pauls , was there anything else in the crash log that seemed off? Any custom fonts, for instance, that it's trying to load? I have a couple and tried disabling them to no effect. I've also uploaded the crash report on the new version, just in case. Updating OS to 10.11.6 did not help.
  4. @mac_heibu @A_B_C Thank you both for your suggestions. I tried both of them, but it's still crashing instantly. I think I'm going to have to accept that AP may not work for me until the next beta build at the very least.
  5. @Pauls For the program or the OS in general? AP always crashes before I can open Preferences. If so, what's the best way to clear the OS cache? Looking it up gives a lot of conflicting information and I don't want to lose my custom fonts
  6. @Pauls I finally managed to upload the .crash file. Can't wait to go back to making my labs with AP :D
  7. @fde101 Is there a special place to submit crash logs?
  8. I just downloaded the latest version of the Beta and it crashes (or in OSX-speak, quits unexpectedly) whenever I try to open it. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling, no dice. Here's some system info: Late 2012 retina mac El Capitan 10.11.5 10 GB free Please let me know if there's anything else I need to provide. Thanks!
  9. Nice, but it looks like they still haven't fixed the awful subscript/superscript issue. Try using them for yourself if you don't know what I'm talking about.
  10. Here, just note that "outlined font" means curves hmm.afpub
  11. Not sure if it happens to all text or just the fancy imported stuff, not tested.
  12. @dominik Hello! Jump does not allow the picture and text to exist on the same line, and in this case I only want one line to be sharing the horizontal space with the image (so square/tight/whatever doesn't work either). See attached for what I'd like as a wrap mode.
  13. Copying as PDF with outlined fonts to Affinity Publisher works fine. However, when I group the thing and try to get text to wrap around it in any way, the program freezes up and stops responding.
  14. @Wafer I can import an equation to AP as a non-editable vector, but there's no wrap setting for doing this without manually adjusting line separation: texttexttexttexttexttexttexttexttext texttexttexttexttexttexttexttexttext [EQUA] texttexttext [TION] texttexttexttext texttexttexttexttexttexttexttexttext Besides, whenever I do try any wrap of an imported equation the entire program crashes. I'll make a post about it on the bug forum.
  15. Truthfully, I've never heard of data merge before this but it seems so useful that it would be weird not to have it in a publishing application. You have my forum like... and my axe!
  16. @Chris_KIt seems to have been fixed in the latest build! Thanks so much for your help!
  17. I've used Affinity Designer to make lab reports for a couple years now, but always had two main issues (equation writing and having to import screenshots of tables). While you can imagine my joy at Publisher fixing the latter problem, I still think having an equation maker would be a huge step forward and a massive leg up over InDesign. Think of all the boring-looking papers being cranked out right now that could be so much better if only they were made in AP. Hell, maybe it can even tempt the LaTeX faithful...?
  18. Whenever I try and import stuff from Affinity Designer, the program acts fine for a few seconds then freezes, so I have to go and force quit the program. Not sure what's causing it, but it's a PITA.
