  1. Mike and Bruce, Seriously....Did I miss that? My immediate thoughts when I read your posts were, "Whaaaat, why did I not bother looking at the Layers pallette, how stupid," thankyou all of you, I really do appreciate the time you took to have a look. I am sorry that I wasted your time on something I should have done.
  2. I have removed personal details and have removed all margins. Also moved bottom left image so that you can see that nasty red box better. It is 9 Mb so not too big. TextileUpload.afpub
  3. Hi Walt, I turned off snapping, and also absolutely nothing is selected, no candidates or anything. The Red box is still there. It is the inner one, I have removed all margins, the out red line is the snipping tool I used.
  4. Hi Bruce, I have never had these on, ever. Here is a screen shot, running through the drop down list there is nothing selected. Plus the bounding boxes are Red not purple.
  5. Hallo Walt, hope things are fine with you. I looked at the snapping manager dialogue, and there are no options for turning off or on any "Snapping canddates" It just simply says "Candidates" with 4 options that I don't know what they mean anyway. When I copied the graphics into another document and then minimized the graphics, those red bounding boxes did not move, so now they are printing over my minimized graphics. I do not know if there is a clue here, that they were copied over with the graphics.
  6. Hallo, Am confused, came back to an old file and printed it out. I have no idea what on earth this red outline is that surrounds the graphics (have moved the graphic out of the way so you can see). Searched everywhere including the Help, searched throughout the document and print settings and have no clue what on earth it is doing there. Thankyou Chris.
  7. Ah that is why I said the UPPER middle ages, however I should have been more precise because my writing is around 1550 and strictly speaking this is beyond the High Middle ages, I simply see the end of Middle ages as being around the 1500 but that is my personal take rather than an historically accurate description. Phew! 1000 - 1400 is high middle but in my circle anything before 1600 is medieval. So has my T’is survived the interrogation? EDIT: Well the consensus of opinion is that I am wrong. It should be ’tis, um.....however its earliest recorded use was indeed in the middle of 1400 and shakespeare used it in Hamlet and it was written as PualEC suggested. Tail between my legs, ’tis a mournful sentiment I do now taste. Still this has not resolved the fact that Affinity can not find glyphs and one can not type them into the search and find dialogue.
  8. You are absolutely right, in grammatical rules yes However IT IS - no letter is being replaced, nothing to replace the letter "I" and since the Old English "This is" was the original meaning, the apostrophe is actually replacing the letter "H", and has been handed down now to mean "It Is" as well. Hope this clarifies it nicely for you.
  9. Hi Walt, the problem is that glyph is not the same. More to the point though, I can not get theseglyphs into the find and replace dialogue, I mean what the heck does the U+Nummerical number mean when you hover over these glyphs in affinity? The only way that glyphs go into the dialogue is via Windows own Unicode. So these glyhs seem redundant in Affinity right? An apostrophe from the glyphs is not the same as one typed in via unicode windows alt + numerical number, this is quicker and it works, in the find/replace as well. Ok, so It really does not matter any more, just a small niggly thing of no consequence I suppose. Windows own Alt unicode works for everything in Affinity so that is all that matters. I’m happy! or rather I Alt+0146 m happy It is short for "This is" or more commonly "It is" used in olde English vernacular and spoken even today, but I am using it for upper Medieval language.
  10. Walt, the glyph browser has U+0027 as the code for this. Well double clicking on the apostrophe in the glyph inserts it into the text, great. That's fine. Thankyou for that. However I have now the problem that I do not know how to use the U 0027 becasuse double clicking this glyph into the FIND dialogue does not work, and holding U while typing the numbers does not work either in affinity text or the find dialogue, so I need educating here please.. I have never needed to use glyphs before, I used the windows keyboard UTF codes in the past but that was on the apple. Since if the Find dialogue does not recognise a straight apostrophe, then it has no point trying to replace them using this method. So I suppose I will have to do it manually. EDIT: OK, ALT + 0146 gives a much nicer looking apostrophe than affinity's glyphs. Also it is accepted by the Find and Replace Dialogue, which I did not expect. So Affinity might want to change this or not, or maybe it has its reasons for this I do not know. But using the windows UTF code works perfectly. Here is the ALT + 0146 T’is it's actually nicer than the curly one in Affinity's Glyphs which still looks too straight. Yes, I know, I'm a perfectionist.
  11. Ugh? I only know curly apostrophes, you remember, those good old original ones from the days when we used to write things with a thing called....a, now what was it called? Oh yes - a pen. But the keyboard has only straight apostrophes Walt. Here it is: ' and this is what I used to write the word : T'is.
  12. It depends upon what the "Stuff" is. But it seems to me that you could do this in either publisher or designer. Publisher is not a designing package. Boxes and grids coloured and shaped can be done in publisher. But personally, it sounds to me that you would be better off having both programs for nothing more than sheer felxibility. Why don't you do the designing in designer and then try and repeat that in publisher if you only want to use one program. You can still employ text in designer.
  13. Windows10 up to date.The Purchased Publisher. Typing the following into "Find": T'is - does not find this particular word, however "Tis" is found. I have tried many combinations involving an apostrophe and it appears that the Find and replace can not recognise this form.
  14. Yes..... but with a however included: If you are designing a single page flyer I am sure designer would be all you needed.
