  1. Yes, I agree. I think it has something to do with the way that Acrobat calculates the underline width across pixels, I sometimes notice a similar thing in web development displayed on HD screens. It looks like InDesign gets around this by adding a variable width for underlines which seems to help reduce the discrepancy. I ended up using a 0.7pt pen stroke, which is not perfect, especially in a 36 page document with linked text boxes, but as a temporary fix, it worked. The issue I have is that the U.S version of the doc is created in InDesign and because they have an option for variable underline thickness, they can get around this. However it does mean that my client has a direct comparison between their polished version and my slightly unpolished version.
  2. Apologies, that was the version I was working on to fix to issue using strokes. Not ideal, but they display well in Acrobat. I've replace the last version with a new one and have removed all other pages to help.
  3. +1 We need more options added for underlines. Further to this, I posted a report here:
  4. This is the page I'm having issues with. I'm using Adobe Acrobat Reader to view the PDFs, not the native os preview. Underline issue v2.afpub
  5. Hi Walt, They are both underlines. I've tested these as hyperlinks and they behave in the same way, which I expected as the hyperlink is only a style for the an underline. The font is OpenSans. I've tried a couple of different sets of this font, including the one packaged from the Adobe InDesign doc but they all show the same anomaly. No, it doesn't show-up in the native Publisher doc, only in exported PDFs.
  6. PDFs exported from Affinity Publisher display different underlines on the same page at different thicknesses as you can tell in my screenshot below. This doesn't happen when comparing an exact replica of the document exported from Adobe InDesign so that rules out the PDF viewer. I understand that no width adjustments can be made to underlines as they are a style attached to the font. I tried using 'Decorations', but they only relate to Paragraph styles, not character styles! Anyone found a way to fix this? Affinity Publisher Adobe InDesign
  7. Thanks Walt. Yes, I'm inclined not to use the 'Edit in' option as I've had issues with saving the file in the wrong format and regretted it. The problem I have is that I use Google File Stream to save my files, in real-time, to the cloud so I have to wait longer and longer the larger the file gets. I suppose another option would be to split my designs into different files but I'm surprised that this feature isn't already in Designer. After the release of publisher I'd have thought they'd have re-purposed the code.
  8. Would love this feature in Affinity Designer. My website projects end up being huge files solely due to the embedded images. The ability to link these would make this the ultimate web design tool. As it stands, I'm thinking of moving my web designs over to publisher, but don't want to lose the extra functionality that designer provides for exporting slices.
  9. Thanks thomaso, but unfortunately I don't backup the system. I'll try on my home iMac and laptop, although I think I recently updated the apps on them as well.
  10. Hi, My assets have disappeared from the latest Affinity Designer and Affinity Publisher. Am using a Mac, any ideas how to recover them - it took me a long time to collect them and I'd rather not have to go through the process again. Any ideas appreciated.
  11. Agree. I have already been asked to build my PDFs with DDA compliance.
  12. Still crashes when rearranging the swatch palette. Any news of an update for this?
  13. I have many objects that I need to create art-boards from but I'm unable to create an art-board because the object bounding box re-size handle overrides the art-board tool. Locking the object layer is the only way to do this. My problem is that I have multiple objects, so unlocking and then locking each one in turn very time consuming and unnecessary. Any news on a better solution would be appreciated.
  14. I often work from home and have my panels laid out differently on my studio desktop, home desktop and my MacBook Pro, so I often find myself in a muddle. Some kind of sync that remembered settings and tool layouts would be useful.
