    I have found that if I copy an placed asset and double click to edit the layers, the layer changes will affect the copy and the original.  So to avoid this, I place a fresh instance of the graphic for each view.  This works fine.  Each 'place' can be edited differently in terms of layer view.

    But, if you make a change to the original designer file all the placed graphics will reset back to the saved state of the layers in the designer file, which is a question I have opened on the forum.

  2. I am an architect and use Designer for site analysis graphics, amongst many other uses.  The graphics tend to be built up using many layers, each of which has a unique bit of data.  I then bring the graphic into publisher and select which layers I want to show.

    Two things:

    I have found that if I copy an placed asset and double click to edit the layers, the layer changes will affect the copy and the original.  So to avoid this, I place a fresh instance of the graphic for each view.  This works fine.

    Until...

    If I make a change to the original designer file, the resource manager quite helpfully tells me to update the content in the publisher file.   But... every instance of the placed graphic then gets reset to the same layer settings, so I have to go through the whole report, resetting all the layer structures.

    Is there a way of the placed asset remembering the layer settings?

    If not, can I please request this as a tweak to the next iteration of Publisher?

    Many thanks.

  3. This may not be a bug, but a limitation of the software.

    Many thanks.  Loving the software.

  4. I find that every time I close Publisher and reopen the Symbol Sync becomes activated again.  I tend to work on documents with master pages and duplicated pages and I get caught out when the symbol sync is on as edits to one page are duplicated.  A powerful feature, but I feel this should be OFF by default, rather than ON.

    Is there a way of switching it off 'application-wide' rather than for each session?

    Fabulous app, by the way.  I'm loving using it.
