  1. Thanks Mac, Publisher is looking good !
  2. Thanks Mac and Garett, you are right, that was an Illustrator file that I pasted, I thought that Publisher would reflow the text like Illustrator does. Mac, how did you get to see those cr lf to show ? In Pages it's simply "Show Invisible". Publisher needs a user manual, is there one in the making ?
  3. I modified the margins and reflowed the text and the hyphenation is all wrong, but it was wrong even before reflowing but now more so. At the end of the second line it should be "économi- " not "écono-" , etc. Hyphenation is all wrong throughout this page and yes I read everything that Publisher has to say about the subject. I also mostly work by intuition and obviously functions in Publisher are mostly not intuitive. Thanks 8X10_13pts Arial-FR.afpub
  4. Reflowing a text after modifying a page size is **intuitive** in Illustrator: 1) set new margins, 2) select the text box, 3) resize text box to match the margins and voilà! No need to read a book. Functions that are not intuitive should be described in a User Manual. Is there one in the making ? Thanks
  5. Good morning Mac, Does that mean that font embedding is not supported by Publisher or that it does support it somewhat but not correctly ? Thanks
  6. Good advice Walt, I know that I can trust PDF to respect a font as designed by its creator. The publishing industry and printers relie heavily on PDF documents and Pages documents are easily converted to PDF. My comment about Publisher not being able to read Pages files was not a good one as pointed out by Mac, I have to look deeper into Publisher's vocation and how I can use it in my work. Thanks
  7. Not a big problem. Publisher could be the super type-setting-oriented-word-processor that I'm looking for, one that would take FontLab's Text tool a step further. Publisher as an InDesign alternative for the publishing business is improbable, at least not in the foreseeable future.
  8. I note that Publisher will not open documents from "Pages for Mac", is there a reason for that ? I know that Pages documents can be converted to a PDF and then Publisher will open them, Copy and Paste will also work, but those detours are very inconvenient. Thanks
  9. Thanks ABP, kerning the f is indeed a bit special, thanks for reminding me. This requires negative spacing between an f and a space, other characters at the end of a word may also need to be adjusted, the r for instance. In any case even if the font is wrong Publisher must respect the font design.
  10. Thanks Mike and Chris.
  11. Hi, I would like to know if Publisher applies the kerning tables that the font designer has set for the font that I have chosen. When searching for this feature in Publisher I was referred to TextEdit, why ? I always want to respect the font designer kerning tables when available. Thanks for your help. Andre
  12. Hi Walt I agree and hyphenation is working fine now. Thanks, Andre
  13. Hi, Hyphenation not working. I'm on a Mac running El Capitan. Lots of experience in Illustrator. Thanks for any suggestion, Andre
