  1. Hi. I experienced this same problem with v1 of Publisher before. It keeps reformatting the texts as I adjust the layout. I copy the texts from MS Word and paste them into the text frames (the same problem occurs when I place the MS Word file). I've already applied the Body Text style to the text frames and to the paragraphs. I also set the default Notes - Footnotes style to what I set in the Text Frame Styles. You can see the applied formats when I open the document. And then you'll see Publisher cut the text, make the last paragraph 6 pts, and then move it to the next text frame. It sometimes goes back after I reapply the text styles. But when after I do this, it reformats the footnotes. It even hides one footnote (no. 29) and I can't find it anywhere. And then it wreaks havoc on all remaining pages. :( I've attached the screen recording, AFPUB, and MS Word files. Mac OS Sonoma 14.3 on M1 Mini with 8GB RAM. Affinity Publisher Problem.mov 1.

  2. Hello, I used to create my magazine with Adobe InDesign, and I have been trying Affinity Publisher 2 since few months, and I don't know if I will continue, because there too many problems that are impossible to correct. For example, this page with 2 columns. I have 9pt text and despite me, when I put text in the second colum, it gets a size of 1,1pt. See picture 1 below. And when I change the size back to 9pt manually, I get big 75pt caracters appearing in my previous text!? See picture 2 below That's not the only bug I encounter with this software, but this is the worth. Please somebody can help?
  3. Nearly every time I add or remove a page break from existing Publisher 2 documents some of the text on the page (usually after the one the cursor was on) just changes size. It's an ongoing problem and wastes a lot of time fixing (basically reapplying the styles again). Is there a fix for this planned?
  4. I am going through the process of converting InDesign publications to Affinity Publisher. It's mostly going well but I have a persistent problem with the erratic behaviour of text styles. The basic text size is 10pt on 12 pt and has the style "Running Text" but, halfway through working on the document, I find the text on the next page is now 1.4 pt (see Text Frame 1). When I pull down the text frame on the first page, the text which is drawn in from the second page is the correct size; likewise, if I push up the text frame, the text which flows onto the second page is transformed into 1.4 pt. Last night, I went through the document and changed all the incorrect text to "No Style" and then to "Running Text". This morning, after working on a page, I noticed sections had changed themselves to 1.4 pt again. Not only that, but later the text changed itself to 84 pt! (See Text Frame 2.) I am using v1.10.5.1342 on a new laptop with a 6 core processor running Windows 11. However, I have had exactly the same problem with v1.9 on a laptop running windows 10 Pro and eventually had to create an entirely new document. I have a number of InDesign documents which I need to convert and I really don't want to have to start all over again. Can anyone shed any light?
  5. I have made a screen video to visualize the problem. It is not possible for me to move the text on the right side under the text on the left side without creating strange effects. Ich habe mal ein Bildschirmvideo gemacht, um das Problem sichtbar zu machen. Es ist mir nicht möglich, den Text auf der rechten Seite unter den Text auf der linken Seite zu schieben, ohne dass merkwürdige Effekte entstehen. https://das-goldene-tor.de/dropbox/bugbugbug.m4v
  6. There is another strange behavior with the footnotes. If I allow the footnotes to be split, the formatting goes haywire. You can see this in the video. Bildschirmaufnahme 2023-11-28 um 11.56.34.mov
  7. This is not a new bug; I have experienced it in stable versions but thought I would see whether it had been addressed in beta. After adding new pages in the middle of a long multi-column document (and appropriately linking the frames so that the text flows), the font on the newly added pages changed (bizarrely) from 10 point to 5.5 point. When I select the text and try to change it all back to 10 point, some of it gets changed to 18.3 point. Simply put, inserting (adding) new pages somehow seems to introduce a bug that affects one's ability to control (or rely on specified) font size. Font size seems to be almost random (sometime smaller, sometimes larger) around the insertion point of the new page. I have attached a few screenshots. I cannot share the entire file publicly, but would be happy to send it to the developers. Please let me know if you require any further information. I am not exactly sure what the bug is or how to trigger it (other than as outlined above), but I often experience it in a number of long, multi-lingual and multi-column texts. The font used throughout the document was 10 point; I use the same size font to align texts in different columns. Any help would be appreciated. Sincerely, SC Affinity Publisher, MacOS 12.6.8, MacBook Pro (15-inch, 2018).
  8. I'm raising this as a new issue because I've now seen two separate instances of what initially appears to be the same problem... There appears to be an issue where text flowing between text frames in certain (as yet unknown) circumstances has both it's font size and leading scaled to exactly 12% of it's original size. The initial assumption in the first instance was that perhaps the text frame had been scaled but after a lot of testing this doesn't appear to be the case. The user simply copied and pasted text into the first text frame but as soon as it flows into the second linked text frame the 12% scaling issue occurs... The issue doesn't currently have a resolution... The second instance involves opening an IDML file in Publisher, creating a new text frame and linking a text frame from the source document to the newly created Publisher text frame, again when the text flows between the two both the font size and leading are scaled by exactly 12% when the text flows into the second linked text frame. As far as I'm aware, in the first instance, there was no association with an IDML file... Opening the files in Publisher v1.X and v2.0.4 exhbit the same issue so it appears that there is something internal causing the scaling issue but it's not immediately obvious what that is...
  9. When text is flowed into a linked frame on the next page, its font size is inexplicably tiny at the top of the next frame. I have seen the same thing happen but with a huge text size, and also wild alternation between huge and tiny as the text is reflowed between the frames. This problem occurs seemingly randomly. Regardless of how much I have fiddled with text style resets and overrides, I cannot find a lasting solution - the problem recurs. The only solution has been to rebuild the document from scratch in a new file. I suspect this bug may be related to IDML import, as to date I have only seen it happen in documents I've transferred from InDesign.
  10. I design the Sunday bulletins for the church I work for using InDesign. The format I use for the various Bible readings in the service uses the split column feature in InDesign, which I know, along with the span columns feature, hasn’t yet been implemented by Affinity. Maybe someday! 😉 I’ve been experimenting with trying to import IDMLs of my bulletins to use in Affinity Publisher, to see if I can get used to an Affinity Publisher workflow (I know it will be more work in creating more text boxes, and the H&J won’t be as elegant as InDesign’s Paragraph Composer, but again, Affinity may have support for those things in the future. I do like the idea of being able to edit on an iPad with Affinity Publisher, though! Here's the problem: if I import an IDML file that has split columns defined in it, Affinity Publisher will ignore the split columns (and also indents in that paragraph style). Oh, well, I can work around that, I figure. Let’s just move the text frames around and reflow the text into new text frames where i can tell those frames to be 2 columns, and then back to 1 column frames, and then reflow to a 2-column frame, etc. But what actually happens if I try to move the text frame and then flow that text block into a new frame is that the size of the type in the new frame is drastically reduced—to what a mentor of mine in the old days called “mouse type”! What was 12-point type is now 1.4 points! And changing the style doesn't have any effect, because it's the same paragraph style as in the other parts of the document. The size reduction is only in the new text frame I've created—once the text flows on to the existing text frames in the document, it's at the normal size. If I'm trying to replicate my original layout, how can I do that if making new text frames/boxes is going to result in these sorts of type-size errors? Hopefully this is a bug that can be fixed in future releases until such time as they enable split/span columns.
