Is there a way to change all the different font sizes across all pages by percent/multiplier? eg. Change all the type set in Arial by 78% I tried using find and replace, but the format function only allows a fixed point size. I'd like to use a percentage or multiplier (eg. 78% or *0.78) I use percentages/multipliers all the time for individual instances in the character panel, but here I want to make all the type smaller but in proportion to each other. There are just too many different sizes and pages to adjust all of them individually. Is there a regular expression I could use that searches the formatting? something like: Font size:.*? and then replace with something like: $&*0.78 Or is there a way to enter the format information into the replace box manually instead of the dropdown menus? eg. Instead of replacing the format with "Font: Arial; Font weight: Normal; Italic: Off; Font size: 12pt" manually type in "Font: Arial; Font weight: Normal; Italic: Off; Font size: 78%" So far using expressions I've only managed to search the actual text, not the underlying format information. Is there a list of the Publisher specific tags I could be using in expressions, or do regular expressions only search the text?
(This appears to be the feature-requests forum, but I've been wrong before. If I picked the wrong location please advise.) I would surely appreciate improvements to the Edit Text Style dialog, which could be made easier on the end-user. Dropdown menu for selecting styles Please consider adding a drop-down menu to this dialog's first panel (the one named, simply, "Style"). Purpose: select some other style for editing. It would be useful having the option to filter the display: all styles, versus paragraph styles only, versus character styles only, versus only styles presently used in the document. UI Font size : -) Text throughout Affinity Publisher's UI is small enough to make things, well, a bit hard on some of us. I'm glad I don't use a 4K monitor — if I did the UI would be so hard to read that I would probably not have purchased the program after using the trial version. Even on this laptop with its relatively small monitor, there is plenty of "screen real estate" to expand a dialog like Edit Text Style if a larger UI font were used. I've noticed that Publisher's Mac version has a way via Preferences to adjust the fonts in the UI. Not so the Windows version. So Windows version users are stuck with the small UI fonts, as-is. (I do already have fonts somewhat enlarged via Windows' own control panel. But enlarging them further using that control will not likely give good results.) Display of specific style information Describing all kinds of data—font, size, color (etc.)—simply as "No change" says nothing about the actual style data. This is unlike the style information displays in word processors or page composition programs I've used in the past. Even in the first ("Style") panel of the dialog, the summary information at the bottom of the dialog (in the "Style Settings" field) includes the actual typeface name only if you are editing "Base." In short: Understanding fully what's in a style has been made unnecessarily difficult. Please consider ways of improving this. Copying style data to the clipboard I'd hoped I could copy the information from the dialog's "Style Settings" field to the clipboard so that I could examine the style information using a more readable typeface, in a text editor or word processor. Each item in the field ends with a semicolon. So, I figured I could replace each semicolon with "newline"—voilà, more readable text. But the information within this field cannot be selected or highlighted (let alone copied). Please either add a "Copy" [to clipboard] button for the field, or at least make the text in it selectable with the mouse (or all of it selected at once by clicking in the field and pressing Control+A) so that the user himself can copy it to the clipboard and paste it somewhere else. Thanks.
