  1. I am loving the footnotes feature in Publisher v2. But is there any way to show that split footnotes continue on the next page? Many books use a hand symbol or the word 'cont' to show this but I can't find an option. This is a problem particularly when the page split happens to align with a sentence end - the reader has no idea there is more content over the page. I considered disabling split footnotes but I like them, also it decreases the chance of the footnote and its label being on different pages (a separate matter which has been discussed in these forums before).
  2. Hi, I started to work on a book project yesterday. The text was written in word and contains about 250 footnotes. It imports smoothly into the text frames I have created, showing all the footnotes without issue. But when I activate the replacement function in publisher (Text --> Notes) Publisher crashes, i.e. it just disappears from the screen. An info window with a report for Apple appearing a few seconds later is all info I get. I am running Pub 2 on a MacBook Pro M1 with M1pro and 16 GB under macOS Ventura 13.1. I have restarted my system several times but no improvement. This is extremely deterring as the book is my main work right now and the whole design concept relies on sidenotes. Is this a known issue? Thanks
  3. Dear all, My colleague has a book with hundreds of footnotes, and he needs in many cases to switch the position of full stop and footnote marker. Is there any way to this with find&replace without having to do it manually? We need to do something like this: Find: [footnote marker][full stop] Replace: [full stop][footnote marker] E.g. This should become like this Thank you in advance.
  4. When importing text containg footnotes from MS Word 2010 via clipboard, the footnotes are lost and paragraph styles in document get messed up. Windows 10 Pro, 20H2 Publisher 1.9 MS Word 2010 Reproducible To reproduce: Create document in MS Word containg some footnotes. Create blank document in Publisher with a text frame. In Word <ctrl>+A to select all text In Publishet <Ctrl>V to paste text. Note that footnotes are missing and some of the paragraphs have been formatted as 'footnote text'. I would expect the footnotes to be imported along with their styles. ImportTestFromPublisher.afpub Import test for Publisher.docx
  5. Hi! One point before to start this topic: you are doing a huge and great job!!! Yes! I'm in love with your softwares… Please go ahead in this way then! So, I'm a professional publisher (book publisher) and daily user of Indesign since years ago. But, at least I don't want to be hocked with Adobe's subscription yet. I'm seeking for a viable alternative. Some years ago too I worked with an excellent software, Freehand, shamefully killed by Adobe (yes, again!). It's very late I'd found a nice alternative: Affinity Designer. What's my question of the day? Will Affinity Publisher manage the footnotes as Indesign presently does? When I import a .docx file into ID (the word file has footnotes) ID can automatically import them. A precious feature I use everyday. If not I think that feature should be very useful in a near future. I don't doubt about your skill to implement that function in the further improvements Yours
  6. Kindly consider adding footnotes feature on AP. It is really a big deal not having it.
  7. Hi, I am using Mac and come from Quark (since 2002), considering Publisher as a serious alternative. My aim is b/w scholarly publications (text, drawings, charts, some photographs) with a degree of control over the text flow that goes far beyond Word. We make use of a lot of not-so-common Unicode regions and strange fonts. Most files are delivered in Word and contain lots of legacy data going back to Word4, odd fonts and in-line formatting that is time-consuming to rip out and redo. I make use of a very limited amount of the options that a DTP offers but cannot rely on Word for making books. On the other hand, I need to stick to a version of a program for some time for economic reasons, and -- as I am a scholar in the first place, not a designer -- I am unable to switch to every new version instantaneouly. I rather jump. Keeping up-to-date with Quark was impossible, I got stuck at 2015 and present something of a tech dinosaur. My experience with Publisher Beta oh High Sierra so far: It feels a lot like Quark but is more comfortable for my purposes. In comparison to Quark X and 2015 it is more stable and robust (surprise). It still runs old home-made TT fonts that Quark 2018 refuses for some reason. Files from authors come 99.9% in Word with a lot of legacy data and in-line formatting. Converting to RTF before input is not comfortable but an acceptable work around. I need a feature to strip paragraphs of all formatting leaving in-line italices, bold, superscript and subscript in place (it is impossible to use nested styles for it, language transcriptions look much different form normal text), otherwise I have to redo them one by one. I need heaps of footnotes, short and very long ones (this is the typical thing in old-style European humanities where they contain side-arguments and annotations to literature and they are to be read with the main text). If possible, they should stay on the page with the line they belong to. Flowing to the next page should be avoided whenever possible. The system that Quark and Indesign offer is pretty useless. They consider it an advantageous feature when footnotes run over to the next page. At the same time they give us no tools to manipulate the distance between text and footnotes at page level. All you can do is move the separating border up and down. Therefore I still need to use my old work-around that I have been doing for 20 years: 1. Add next to the footnote markers in Word in both the main text and in the footnotes normal figures and assign some style to them. 2. save text and footnotes in different files. 3. remove Word’s footnote markers in both files. 4. import main text and footnotes into Quark or Publisher in two different sets of linked frames. 5. manipulate the text flow of both frames by hand; if necessary adjust leading in incremments to fit text in the best possible way. 6. Allow overflow of footnotes to the next page only if unavoidable, preferably from left to right page. In most book I have done, this happened once or twice. Being able to manipulate the distance between main text and footnote is of the essence (after all, footnotes are meant NOT to run over). Overall smoothness or eveness of appearance is not the issue. I still prefer to have control over the text flow to any automated feature. There is one draw-back, of cause: you cannot change footnote numbering after conversion into DTP. And most authors do this at some point after typesetting started. The obvious solution is to add footnote 62a or to declare footnote 85 as "deleted". On occasion I renumbered large quantities by hand. Therefore, before Publisher implements some footnote system, I urge the developers NOT to imitate Quark or Indesign. All that is needed is two separate text flows with the option to add or delete footnotes with automatically updating the footnote numbers. Ideally, a footnote converter from Word to Publisher at the import level should be available. I am aware that I am an outsider when it comes to typesetting but in contrast to other media our books have a lifetime of 50 plus odd years. We are struggling against a few commercial publishers that offer their services at outrageously large expense for authors and libraries. Affinity Publisher looks like the solution to my most pressing problems. Thank you
  8. Hi! Somebody can tell me about possibility to implement multiple footnote/endnote threads in upcoming Affinity Publisher?
