I started searching for this issue, but there were too many results to find if this was already reported / asked. I did this: Ctrl+Alt+Shift+N for a new image from clipboard > Select Frame Text Tool > Select a color from the Font Color palette from the ribbon. With the new image still "selected" (from the New action), clicking the Font Color on the ribbon appears to change the Channel color (or overlay color, or something [I'm sorry, I'm not sure what to call it]), not the Font Color in preparation of typing text. Clicking off / unselecting the image, the color change does not happen. It only happens if the image is left selected from the New action. But I would think that clicking the Font Color button wouldn't effect the entire image like that. I'm not saying something is wrong, just want to confirm if this is acting the way it is expected. Thanks.
New to the forum, I have by now purchased, downloaded and installed all three Affinity programs (Win 7), and am hoping that Designer can do what both Acrobat Pro and ABBYY Finereader refuse to do. I have a 200-page PDF document that apparently was created, by someone else, in some sort of automated scanner-to-OCR-to-PDF application. The original paper document's pages were 4.25" wide by 7.0" high, but throughout the PDF document they vary somewhat in both directions - in some cases larger, in other cases smaller. The font color throughout is a medium-to-dark gray - notwithstanding that the font color in the original was black. Acrobat Pro XI and DC both are able to correctly crop the over-size pages in both dimensions, but both versions of that program absolutely refuse to increase the under-size values. ABBYY Finereader, OTOH, can be finagled to generate new pages of the correct size, but in doing so it screws up the line justifications on almost every page. So, in addition to needing to make sure all pages end up the desired 4.25" wide by 7.0" high, I need to change the font color to solid black, throughout the document. Acrobat can only do this a single page at a time, which would otherwise be barely tolerable; but in making these labor-intensive color changes it often royally screws up the line justifications and general fit of the text blocks on each page. My version of ABBYY Finereader can change font color only one line at a time, which basically makes the program worthless for my purposes. Bluebeam eXtreme can do what I need to do, but its $549 (US) price is way beyond my current budget. So, before I wade deeply into Designer and risk even more "manual hair loss," does it sound as though the program can be made to do what I need to do? Thank you! MarkT
