  1. An absolutely essential Baseline Grid functionality is to align text with: «All Lines» or «First Line Only». Making a Magazine without the «First Line Only» is quite annoying. Would be great if you could this essential layout feature implement in version 1.
  2. macOS High Sierra on MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Early 2013). Have a document well over 100 pages that displays fine in 1.8.3 but not in 1.9. (Good job I kept the old version and only opened a copy in the new one.) The problem is that no use is now made of the first line in the baseline grid. This is set to 11pt first line then every 14pt from Top Margin of Master Page applied. Font is 10pt on 14pt leading. Have tried adding the same grid to the frame and reducing leading thru to 0. No joy. Only thing that worked (p.1 (LHS) of attached; RHS shows problem) was using a larger
  3. Hello, Over many years I have used all of the major design and publishing applications and I am really enjoying Publisher, but the text formatting controls do not always seem to work as expected. With Baseline Grid switched on it seems impossible to change leading for a caption text box. There must be an override somewhere but I can't see it. Any ideas? I am also still trying to work out why Leading in the Character window is called Leading Override but in the Paragraph window its called Leading and they don't necessarily show the same values. I'm sure there is a reason for this bu
  4. Hello everyone I’ve got a question about the Baseline Grid or more specific about the Relative to-Option "Top of Page". In the Affinity Publisher Support it says this: "Relative To—specify what the baseline grid's starting position is in relation to. The Top of Page option is used for facing page spreads arranged vertically—you can restart the grid from the top of the second page in the spread." My question is: How can I restart the grid from the top of the second page? I kinda don't understand the function. Is there a good Tutorial who explains it? Thx for your feedback.
  5. There are two types of baseline grids: a) the document level baseline grid; b) text frame level baseline grids. When the user selects to “Use Baseline Grid” via the Baseline Grid Manager, that baseline grid is for the whole document but it can be overridden if the user decides to add a Baseline Grid via the “Use Baseline Grid” option in the Text Frame Panel. At the moment they are both called “Baseline Grid”. Would it be better if the document level baseline grid was called the Document Baseline Grid and the text frame baseline grid called the Local Baseline Grid (or Frame Baseli
  6. Please, add "Baseline Grid" in "Leading" together with "Exactly", "Multiple", "At Least"... This way body text will be linked with baseline grid and will follow its changes smoothly without jumpings. In this case "Align to Baseline Grid" will be no more needed.
  7. There seems to be a glitch in baseline grid in my copy of. Publisher version 1. 7. 1. 404 Windows 8 64 bit. In the attached file the grid is only showing on pages 1 and 2, this is the same throughout a 44 page publication. which this example is extracted from. If I create a new publication using default settings it seems to be ok. Also on page 4 it will not show filler text as expected. 4 pages Vol 34 1 Aug 2019.afpub
  8. I have been attempting to reproduce InDesign typesetting prior to migration. Latest problem is with the baseline grid. I hope we all agree there should be only one such grid in any single document. Publisher seems to create more than one and then misalign them, on each side of a spread. (MacOS 10.9.5 + Publisher 1.7.1) Having auto flowed text into my new document, I noticed misalignment at the base of the third page (RHS of first spread after a single page starting a chapter). I was then astonished to see a second baseline grid appear within the RHS text frame, misaligned with the documen
  9. This happens to me in a MacOS 10.14.5 and latest version iPad Pro. If i don't select the margins while creating a new document, i can't create them in the Guides Manager. If i use margins while creating a new document, i can't modify it in the Guides Manager. Sometimes i can see the baseline grid,... sometimes not. I need to restart designer in order to see them.
  10. Baseline Grid: Relative to TOP MARGIN = 0 Start Position Let the Baseline guides visualisation behave like in InDesign. It is very confusing and an unnecessary visual clutter that the baseline guides are visualised outside of the Margins. That's not what Book and Magazine Designers want and expect if the Baseline Grid is set to: « Relative to TOP MARGIN = 0 Start Position ». Suggestion: At least add a checkbox the allows the user to hide the baseline guides outside of the TOP and BOTTOM MARGINS (Type Area). Check how InDesign handles the Baseline Grid visualisation if set
  11. How can i edit a table's text without having it attaching to baseline grid? now when i modify my table size and dimensions, it looks very wacky.
