  1. That is very kind of you, but I am actually using a third party software for the imposition. I just thought it would be fantastic to have an efficient workflow in just one app (Publisher), since it can already do both the things I need, just not in combination :-)
  2. I have created a booklet with a lot of pages in A6 and I would love to print them two-sided on A4 pages as a booklet (four pages on each side - after printing I would cut the pages in half). So basically I need a combination of booklet and n-up. As I have started this project in InDesign a long time ago, I was only able to save the file as a PDF booklet and then use a third-party tool to n-up the PDF. With Publisher I was able to print it as a booklet, but only when I manually feed pre-cut A5 pages into my printer one by one which is super annoying. Can anyone think of a more efficient way to do this?
  3. Because I have made a template with a page full of picture frames with custom settings and fittings. I could just paste a picture into a frame and it would automatically adopt the settings. That was very convenient.
  4. I'm not sure why I should change the way I have been doing this for months, it has worked perfectly until this one option was removed - hopefully by accident. Yes, I could save the images to my computer and then place them, but that just takes too long honestly. It used to be a matter of two clicks ...
  5. I am pasting barcode images which have been generated on a website. So I just right-click on the image on the website and choose "copy image".
  6. as far as I know that doesn't work with an image in the clipboard
  7. I have used the "paste into" feature a lot. After just upgrading to the latest version that seems to be gone. When I right-click the picture frame I have the option to "paste" and a greyed-out "paste content". How to I paste a new photo into a frame now? I can't figure it out ...

    Lock Guides

    Any idea how to get these options into the toolbar? Do I have to add those manually? I am working with version and they are not there by default. I tried customizing the toolbar and couldn't find those buttons there either ... Thanks.
  9. I tried that - opened the EPS file above in Illustrator, saved it as PDF, then opened it in AD, but I have the exact same problems than I had when opening the EPS directly in AD. I tried different settings when saving the PDF and they had different effects when opening in AD, but each time the file is basically unusable :-(
  10. Thanks for explaining this, guys. Obviously I never had to deal with the specifics before. Can I ask - if EPS is an old format and AI is basically bound to Adobe - what file format would be the better choice? And if I have a file like the one above, is there a way to open it in Illustrator and save it in a way that I would be able to open it properly in Designer? I have SO many files, I wanna make sure that I won't lose any once Illustrator stops working on my Macbook.
  11. But that's the thing. I don't want to open AI files. If I download or buy vector files in EPS format I want to be able to open those without having to use any Adobe software.

    Missing table tools

    Found it, downloaded it, works now. Thanks! Didn't think there were different download versions here and on the website.

    Missing table tools

    didn't realize this wasn't the latest. I just checked and it says "no updates available" ... let me check the website
  14. I am using Publisher with Mac 10.14 I am trying to create a table in a new document and was looking at the tutorial video on your website for help when I noticed that my app behaves differently. In the video when the table is created and you double-click on it you see a header row (A,B,C,...) and column (1,2,3,...) a little like in Excel, and when you click and drag you can change the width and height of the cells. I don't have that :-( When I double-click on my table I have just the blinking vertical line in the first field. Dragging the lines between cells is just moving the table. Am I doing something wrong? Thanks for your help. Jenny
  15. Sorry, you kinda lost me with these screenshots Basically what you are saying is that without opening these files in Illustrator first I can't do anything with them in AD? But that's making AD obsolete and my goal is to completely replace Illustrator since it probably won't be compatible with the next OS update. And here I thought that EPS is the go-to, universal format for people who can't open AI files...
