  1. Hi Team, Been using Affinity Designer for a little while now and have just bought Publisher. Would love to see RTL text support in both Designer and Publisher going forward. As someone who speaks Farsi (Persian) and loves Persian calligraphy and typography I had looked forward to experimenting with opentype fonts in Designer in Persian, but the characters do not render correctly for this to be possible. For rudimentary word processing in Farsi I have used Mellel for many years, as Mac MS Word RTL text support is non existent, but this doesn't allow anywhere near the flexibility and creativity of a "proper" DTP or design application. I'm sure there are many native speakers out there who would love to see this feature too and not just an enthusiast such as myself. I do hope this is something you are working on Thanks!
  2. Have checked those settings (Metal compute) and they are actually greyed out on my version of Publisher?
  3. Hi Team Been using the official Publisher this evening for the first time, working on a file I had been playing with during the beta. I've been trying to hyperlink text in a list by selecting the text, going to text>interactive>insert hyperlink then choosing URL from the drop down, pasting the URL then clicking ok. Basically each time I complete this action, or just before, Publisher keeps quitting. It never did this in the beta testing- what's wrong? I am using High Sierra 10.13.6 on a MBP (late 2011) Intel HD Graphics 3000 512 MB with 16 GB memory. There's no unusual fan activity, so my processor isn't overworking. Everything has run smoothly on Publisher for me up until this point. Thanks K
  4. Yes, I can't help thinking that having the column settings in guide manager is a bit arse about face. I had to go look it up in this forum to even know where to find it. I have been using Indesign for 18 months at work after formal training on it, and even if you weren't planning on having a "layout" tab, surely it makes more sense to put the column settings in the Document Setup area, or near to it? Anyone who has used DTP extensively, professionally or not- the first thing you do is set up your master pages, including your guides. Therefore it makes sense for this setting to be quick and easy to find. Actually setting up the columns themselves in AP is also a bit round the houses- I had to add the setting to the relevant vertical/horizontal box and then click it before it even showed up on the page....? C'mon Serif!
  5. Hi Team I am using Publisher Beta on High Sierra 10.13.6 (17G65) and finding that master pages do not appear by default in a new document, neither can they be applied to pages successfully. Also, I am finding bleed doesn't show on documents, even after I have set it, and I have to set bleed for all four sides of the paper separately rather than having the ability to set one value to apply to all sides. My beta keeps telling me there is a new version available, which I have now downloaded twice- but it's still telling me there is a new version available- IS THERE? Thanks
