  1. Ah! Excellent!! I didn't realise you could input percentages into those fields, I thought they were millimetres only - I've just tried that out and it also works with multiple objects at the same time ..that's extremely helpful thank you very much!
  2. Hi Chris, the transform palette options in Publisher are quite basic, I cannot see a percentage value - this is much more useful when scaling objects which regularly comes up in our workflow. For example: if you have multiple images of different dimensions and/or formats and you want to scale them all to say 50% or 25% of their original size - please see attached screen grab from Indesign to explain this. Nearly all design software both 2D and 3D has a scale factor function in either 'percentage' or decimal value 'scale up or down by a factor of 1.5 or 0.5' ..surely Publisher has this and I'm just not seeing it!?
  3. Hello, is there a tool or method to accurately control the scaling of 'picture frame content', 'images' and 'graphic elements' in Publisher using percentage % values? ( ..as per Indesign) - many thanks
  4. Thank you very much! ..very surprising such a basic feature isn't in there yet, fingers crossed it happens soon
  5. Hi, how do you create a hyperlink - live text link to a URL in Publisher - I cannot find a menu selction for this.. Many thanks
  6. Hello, Once I've selected 'scale to min fit' in properties I'd like to then select 'fit frame to contents' - as I do in Indesign - is there a Publisher equivalent of this important workflow feature? Many thanks Dan
  7. Thank you! Fingers crossed this feature makes the final release!
  8. When will Designer have this very important feature? Thanks so much
  9. DXF Export is really needed to properly compete with Adobe Illustrator, this is necessary for the workflow of many creatives

    Linked files

    Thank you both!
  11. Hi, I'm inputing PDF drawings and Jpeg images within frames into my Publisher document (as I would with Indesign) but when I reopen the document after updating some of the files they do not automatically update in the Publisher document - they all appear to be embedded and I cannot find a linked files palette ..am I missing something? Thanks
  12. Excellent Thank you v much! - this should be in the right click selection - it would be much faster
  13. Is there a short cut or fast select in Publisher for the frame fitting choices as per Indesign? (Screen grab attached) Thanks so much Dan
  14. Thank you very much Walt! - I see this is not a feature I ask because with both Indesign and Quark which is what most people will be coming from to publisher you can simply click 'override master page items' on any page you create to unlock everything and edit as you need to - say for example on the last page only you wanted to remove just one or two elements from your master set this would be a fast and easy way to do it. It would be a good feature to include - it could be listed under the 'apply master' & 'clear master' when you right click on the page thumbnails (left side palette). Thank you very much for solution to the total page number - this is excellent but in terms of location not logical to find, having this next to Text > Insert> 'Page number' would have been expected. Thank you for all your help!
