  1. Maybe a bug, maybe a suggestion, maybe a wontfix and I have to live with this? In Acrobat Pro you can define the Touchup-Editors for objects or images. Editing objects / images opens the object or the image in Illustrator or Photoshop. My intention was to work only with the Affinity Range so I changed the editors to Designer and Photo. When I now select "Edit image / object" from within Acrobat the image / object is now a blank page with only the image / object on it. It would be nice, if I get only the image / object into Affinity Photo / Designer.
  2. My first steps in Publisher got me the feeling that the work is more or less a rule-of-thumb estimate. Cropping images / vectors and moving images inside picture frames are still an example. First example: Create a picture frame and place an image inside. Image should be bigger than the picture frame. Now I want to move the image inside the frame 2,35 mm to the left. How? I can move it manually, but not by value. First example not really a bug: Serif really loves to handle everything from the center. In the transform panel upper left handle is selected. Now change the scale of the image from the context bar e.g. to 200%. The scaling is not done from upper left, but from the center. Second example: Create e.g. a circle. Now click the crop tool. Again you can only crop the object manually and not by values. Using the transform panel would be easier and more precise. Second example not really a bug: Create e.g. a circle and crop it a little bit from the top. Move it to a guide line and it snaps correctly to this guide line. Now do a negative crop - meaning push the top crop handle a little bit over the top of the circle and deselect the circle. The negative cropped circle snaps also to the guide lines at the negative cropping. Cropping means cutting, so there could be in terms of the word no negativity? Or at least, that the cropping rectangle vanishes, when the cropping is negative. Secondly why am I able to give the cropping rectangle a fill and a stroke? Filling does nothing to the cropping rectangle, but making the stroke thicker for the cropping rectangle has an impact on the cropped object.
  3. 1. Open a file in Publisher, make a small change and leave the document unsaved. 2. Go to Preferences -> General and change the language. 3. You will be asked if the restart has to be executed, click Yes. 4. Your document will be closed, do you like to save the changes, click Yes. Result: Publisher is closing instead of restarting. This is not a serious bug, more a bit fine tuning.
  4. Perhaps only on my PC that some images are linked wrong or missing? It is about creating table styles. See image. It would be also helpful, if the images / screenshot are made in the "correct" language. There are some English screenshots inside the German help.
  5. I am pretty sure I reported this a while ago: A word with 6 soft hyphens cannot be put into the dictionary.
  6. Maybe someone found out already how to make text form fields from a Publisher PDF? If yes, a moderator should delete this topic. It is possible to make text form fields out of an PDF, but I fear this is not a solution for all resp. I could not test with other software. My installed standard PDF reader is Acrobat X Pro. Attention: Only text fields can be created. So here are the steps to make a "form". 1. Use tables. Works with a single cell (see image) and works with multiple cells. Works not if the cells are not separated with borders - see image. Works not, if the column has not header with text in it. 2. Export to PDF. 3. Open the PDF with Acrobat Pro. Go to tools -> forms -> create and let Acrobat do the rest. Voila. A PDF with form fields. Saved my life yesterday, creating hundreds of textfields in a PDF is no joy.
  7. Recipe: Create a new text frame. Say, 4 inches wide, and enable text rulers. Set text alignment to centered and set a tab stop at 2 inches in the Paragraph panel. Type a short text string like (without the quotes, and where <space> is a space character) "x<space>y" and press Enter. Note that the space character is centered. Type another short text string like "x<tab>y". Note that the entire string is left-aligned. The tab distance set in the Paragraph panel does not matter, nor does the alignment set for the tab. The "x" is always left-aligned, though the centering should apply to the complete line. Also, note that the tab character is at 1.5 inches, not the 2 inches specified.
  8. Hi, I have experienced this bug a couple of times now. Here's what happens: I have a document with multiple text frames. I tried selecting multiple lines of text using Ctrl and the mouse button to change the appearance for these selected lines of text. At some point during the selecting process, while I'm holding the Ctrl key, quite randomly Designer crashes and closes down.
  9. Had once again a design task (dynamic distribution of rectangles), which I wanted to solve with " constraints" and was actually surprised that the well-known bug was still not fixed?! Actually it's a great function and a good selling point, but it can also make the work of a designer a lot easier. But only under the condition that this function also works 100% and it definitely doesn't work and this already since the introduction of Affinity Designer. But this was one of the few reasons why I said goodbye to Adobe Illustrator AD1.7.1.404_constraints_bug.afdesign
  10. Hello, I found an issue when exporting a PNG file. If you set transparency to a stroke, that specific stroke will be thinner when exported to PNG. To reproduce this, try the following: - create two rectangles with "rectangle" tool - set the interior of the rectangles to white - set the stroke of the rectangles to green for example - put the rectangles one above the other as in attached image (one of them will serve as a "control" rectangle) - for the top rectangle set the stroke opacity to 50% (only for the stroke) - select both rectangles, go to - File - Export - PNG - Selection without background - the result should be as in the attached image From what I experienced, this issue appear only if you export "Selection without background" and only if that specific stroke is on the exterior of the artwork. I use Affinity Designer on Windows 10.
  11. Hello, when I try to open the help menu, a script error is displayed as can be seen in the screenshot. There are no help contents displayed. Kind regards Garfield
  12. I noticed when making a selection on an image (pixel), using the Flood Select Tool, the Right Mouse Button which is used to Add to the selection (according to the Tooltip in lower-left) does not work.
  13. As we've discovered in this discussion (specifically, here) the Export Persona for Designer on Mac has a Select entry in the Menu that is missing on Windows: I'm not sure whether it needs to be added on Windows, or removed on Mac, but the two versions should be consistent in the menu functions they allow. I have no way to know how long it has been like this. (Note: This also applies to Photo
