  1. I am looking to copy the formatting of typesetting from one paragraph to another. It is easy in InDesign using the eyedropper tool, not so easy in Quark. Does anyone have a suggestion please how to do this in Affinity Publisher? I can not find it in the help dropdown. Thank you.
  2. Hi Affinity Community. I am currently working on a portfolio that includes profiles of different people (Names, Stats, Etc). I have been using the data merge feature in Affinity Publisher to populate data in my profile template. The problem I have been having is that some names are too large for my text frame and are hidden. Is there a way to have text from a data merge automatically resize itself to fit a text frame?
  3. A few days ago, I updated Affinity Publisher to version 1.9.0.932. After updating, I realized that (2) out of (6) documents with tables are no longer recognized by the software as containing tables. These are document which I need to update every few weeks and need to add rows to the tables with each update. I am now unable to add additional rows to the tables. The other (4) documents when opened, in the new version, still retain the tables. Can anyone give me some insight? I REALLY need these docs and need to be able to add rows. Thank you.
  4. I reported this to Serif via email (I wanted to send a screen shot and chose email because I can't add screenshots here due to some forum bug). If anyone has the time to test this, it would be useful to know if anyone else can replicate it. The problem: trying to update an existing paragraph style fails because the "Update <name of style>" command is absent from the menu where it's expected. Procedure: from https://fonts.google.com download the font named Lobster (the one having only a single variant, not the similarly named font having four variants). This should display the f
  5. Trying to set up financial tables (balance sheet and income/expenditure). These need rules drawn before and after totals and subtotals. I expect to be able to do this with "stroke and fill" in the Table dialog. In Pageplus I could set a single rule at the top of a totals cell and a double rule at the bottom. Is this supposed to be possible in Publisher? It seems a fairly basic requirement if one is to satisfy the demands of the accountants (whose data I am trying to typeset). The alternative of a thicker rule below is not favourably regarded. While I could of course introduce an empt
  6. I've just spent over an hour trying to replicate the problem with dummy text, but of course it only happens when I'm using the real thing. 🙄 I'm trying to format a novel. At the beginning of each chapter, I want a "sink" (i.e., the text starting partway down the page). I've tried to do this in two different ways: 1) put a text frame on the actual page, Place the *.docx file, flow the text, and adjust the text frames manually at the start of each chapter; 2) make linked text frames in Master Pages (including one with a sink), Place the *.docx file on the actual page, flow the text, and app
  7. Hello, while working with Affinity Publisher (version 1.8.3.641) I came across a strange thing, maybe a bigger bug? Magazine insert, column set, bodycopy text and teaser texts: The line spacing of some texts cannot be edited (anymore). A text style was created for each of these texts. But, no matter if the line spacing is changed in the text style or in the paragraph panel, and no matter what is set there, the line spacing does not change anymore. To find out when exactly this happens, I will now create the corresponding pages again, step by step. I'm very interested to know if an
  8. Hello, I created a background with a gradient in Affinity Photo. In the doc and when exported, I and someone on a separate computer I shared the image to can also see the banding on the image. I tried: exporting as a JPEG, PNG, PNG-8, and converting the file format to RGB/16 and RGB/32 (HDR). RGB/16 seemed to smooth the image more but there were still bands in the image. I also tried remaking the background in RGB/32 but the background did not turn out. The image is 1920 x 1080 300 DPI How can I remove the bands or export the image without the bands?
  9. Hello, this is a fantastic piece of software and it's been a joy to use so far. However, one large frustration I have is handling formatted text content from other places. Steps to Reproduce Copy text from a webpage, an existing PDF, RTF, Microsoft Word / Apple Pages / Google Docs document Paste into a text box inside Publisher or Copy text from witthin a text box inside Publisher Paste into a Microsoft Word / Apple Pages / Google Docs document Expected Behaviour Hyperlinks are present Newlines / paragraphs are preserved Actual Behaviour
  10. I am a newcomer to Affinity Publisher. I have created a document that is intended to print front-back on two legal size pages (four pages, eight pages when folded not booklet. The program Showa ll four spreads, but when I try to print, it will print only two of the four spreads when set on "entire document". It acts as if I have set it for "odd pages only" even though "entire doc" is set. Is this a bug, or am I doing something wrong? System". Mac OS X current version. Affinity:Publisher: current version (1.7.3). Printing to HP lM452dw laser printer. The only workaround I am able to d
  11. This drives me crazy! When entering text in a text frame Publisher always capitalizes the first word of a sentence and I can't find a way to turn this off! I type in the first word of a sentence and all is fine (first screenshot) and the moment I press the space bar the first character in the word gets capitalized (second screenshot). The same also goes for tables, by the way. Anyone here knows if this can be turned off or is it a known bug?
  12. Is there a way to keep all of the formatting on a TOC text area after you update the TOC content? When I update the TOC area it resets any new tabs and specific character formatting I have applied to the page numbers. Also, is there possibly a way to have the TOC page numbers appear without the associated text? Thanks!
  13. I'm getting the hang of the table formats and the use of cell formats inside a table format. However, I'd still like to be able to quickly apply a style to a specific cell (including fill, borders, insets, etc.) from time to time. I am creating a calendar with empty cells in the 'corners'. The table format helps me set up the basic formatting with grey on the weekends, etc., but I have to manually edit the empty cells at the beginning and end of the month to remove any fill and outside borders. In InDesign I had styles for each potential type of cell and simply applied those styles as needed.
  14. Is there a way to import a Microsoft word table into a Publisher document while retining the Word table formatting
  15. Hello, I'm thinking about getting Affinity Photo but I have a question. I format my PC and reinstall Windows every 6 months. Will reinstalling Affinity Photo every 6 months be a problem? Will I be able to reinstall it as many times as I want? Thanks
  16. I am in the midst of creating a multi-page test document and I am stumped trying to find a paragraph rules option. Is such an option available in the Beta? If so, where can I find it? Otherwise I really do hope it will be included in a future update.
  17. It might be nice if the Initial Words text formatting functionality was extended to allow the user to specify whether the End Character(s) were displayed or not. This would allow us to have variable-length Initial Words formatting while using the same paragraph style instead of needing one style for each slightly different scenario. See the attached image which, I hope, explains it better. P.S. This is a very low priority suggestion. If it happens it happens, if it doesn't then that's fine. Just 'popping it into the pot'.
  18. It might be nice if there was also - along with Initial Words - a Final Words formatting scenario with exactly the same options as Initial Words but from the other end of the paragraph. The attached image shows a few examples of use but there are probably more. Not really sure how useful this would be to most people but it would have been useful to me on at least one occasion. P.S. This is a very low priority suggestion. If it happens it happens, if it doesn't then that's just fine.
  19. Maybe this is in the pipeline with Affinity Publisher, but something I frequently seem to need is the ability give frame text a solid background colour. I currently do this by grouping a filled rectangle with the frame text in the layers panel. This works well until you apply a transparency which is also then applied to the text as well. So my request is to have the ability to change the formatting of frame text including the background (including transparency) and line style. It would also be useful for alignment purposes to have the option to see the frame of the frame te
  20. Hi! I know this is far from being prioritized, but it would be great if there was a way to write math in Affinity Designer without having to manually draw lines for fractions, etc. Perhaps implementing just a few typesetting features from LaTeX would greatly help in my scenario, which I will most likely still encounter a lot of times in the future. Thanks!
  21. Hi, I recently bought the Affinity Designer Workbook and have really been enjoying the practical examples and working my way through it. Just a minor error that I'm not sure has been reported or not (I don't have Facebook or Twitter to contact directly so posting on here) but I noticed a formatting error on page 109 - half of the words at the start of each line seems to be cut off a bit. I included a screenshot below. I have to say that the book is excellent so far, I've always found most design software to be quite intimidating and time consuming to learn but the workb
  22. I want to paste the text, but keep the Affinity format.
  23. Hello, Was wondering where on earth the paragraph spacing controls had gone to, then I noticed they were simply not there anymore! See attached screen grab. I can't now change paragraph spacing, which is a bit annoying. Is this a known bug, can I back date to 1.4? Help! Carl
