    William Overington got a reaction from nitro912gr in Making exported pdf smaller?   
    I had an issue of a huge PDF in another thread which I shall try to find.
    I found that by having the purpose of the PDF as for the web rather than for print got the size down a lot.
    Whether that is significant in this case I do not know but I thought that I wound mention it in case this helps.

    An option to save the positions and sizes of the various open panels and the like so they can be recalled in specific configurations that are tailored to different tasks.
     
    I just type the @ character followed by the first letter or two of the user's name and a list pops up to select from.

    William Overington reacted to SisMoon in EPUBs (fixed and reflowable)?   
    Hello,
    Are the engineers planning to add EPUB (fixed and reflowable) development functionality to the next version of Publisher? What other options will be available for digital readers?
    Thank you,
    Sis Moon

    That was the first thing which sprang to mind when you mentioned the much smaller size of the version you produced.

    Your pdfs fail more stringent accessibility checkers. The main failure is the language tag(s) are not set.

    As far as I know, the PDF library of „Publisher“ is a licensed 3rd party product. Besides that, I doubt, that a software company will tell you,  „how much extra work“ will be needed to implement a certain feature.
    If you read the specs, you will see, that PDF/A is no „special“ PDF, but a standard PDF, following certain rules, which partially differ according to the PDF/A standards (font embedding, no encryption, no compression, no video content, no external references, …, …,)
    By the way: There are many online converters like this one https://docupub.de/pdfconvert/ available.

    William Overington reacted to Steps in Support for PDF/A?   
    I learnt that there is a PDF/A standard for long term archival of PDF documents.
    See Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PDF/A#PDF/A-3
    I would like to keep my work future proof.
    Is support for this planned?

    William Overington reacted to Morgoth in Removing ligatures   
    Is there a way to globally remove ligatures from a document created with pasted text?
    Where can I turn off the use of ligatures if I do not want the pasted text to use ligatures?

    William Overington reacted to fde101 in Pantone   
    If you look on the Swatches panel (not the Color panel - those are two different panels) there is a popup menu that allows you to select a swatch palette.  There are several Pantone options in that list.

    Am gradually getting to grips with Publisher and enjoying the process. However, I can't seem to find the Pantone numbers option in the swatches/colour selector area. Presume it is a feature?

    William Overington reacted to SamSteele in What do these symbols do?   
    Sorry to ask such a basic question but can anyone tell me what these two symbols do?
    TIA.
     

  18. Thanks
    William Overington reacted to walt.farrell in What do these symbols do?   
    If you hover your mouse over them you should get the basic explanations, "Synchronize defaults from selection" and "Revert Defaults". They are shortcuts to the menu Edit > Defaults > Synchronize from Selection and Edit > Defaults > Revert.
    The Help says:
     
    So, basically, the first one lets you change the default settings to match those of a selected object (things like stroke, fill, color, font size, ...).
    The second one lets you revert all the synchronized defaults to the saved default settings (from Edit > Defaults > Save) if no object is selected, or lets you revert just the attributes of a selected object.
    I'm still in the experimenting stage with the defaults myself, so I can't really say more at this time.

    William Overington reacted to Alfred in How much will a licence to use Affinity Publisher cost please?   
    It has previously been indicated that a licence for Affinity Publisher will be the same price as a licence for either of the other Affinity desktop apps; i.e. $49.99 / £48.99 / 54,99 €. There is likely to be a substantial discount for the first week or two after the retail launch of the product.

    William Overington reacted to PaRunk in I would like to have these improvements and additional features   
    I would like to have these improvements and additional features:

    Tables:
    1. Create tables from selected texts with tab stops.
    2. Convert tables to continuous text.
    3. Can share single cells at any time. (Helpful for complex tables and subsequent cell division changes)
    4. Can change cell size by moving the dividing lines.

    Import (placing) of further text files:
    Word .docx, .doc
    Excel .xlsx, .xls
    The copying and pasting of the texts is only possible if you have a program with which you can open these files.

    Diagram tool (was there in PagePlus)
    Calendar tool (give it in PagePlus)

    Create QR code and EAN code
    Open Indesign and QuarkXpress and PagePlus files
    Export Indesign and QuarkXpress files
