  1. I need some help creating fractions in Tables, preferably using some sort of number style or text style, rather than manually formatting each fraction one-by-one, which is very time consuming. I create a lot of tables for Engineering companies, which include combinations of numbers and fractions. Many columns of data will have integers followed by fractions. Some customers want a hyphen between integer and fraction, and other customers do not want any hyphens, so I need to be able to configure both. For example, the same column may have numbers (with or without hyphen), such as: 1-½ 35-7/64 18-¼ 165-17/32 I need small fractions, not that do not use full sized characters. Some fonts have common fractions pre-built, (e.g., ¼, ½, ¾, etc) but I am often required to create fractions using 16ths, 32nds, 64ths, etc (e.g., 17/64, 3/32, etc). Sometimes the integer before the fraction will have a single digit, two digits, three digits, etc. And sometimes, an integer suffices without any following fraction. I can manually change a fraction in the Character Panel, but that takes forever with a lot of data. I've been able to create text styles that render the entire table cell as a fraction, but I need an Integer followed by a Fraction. I haven't been able to figure out how to do this in Publisher Tables or even with Character/Paragraph Styles. Can anyone help with this? Thank you.
  2. I want to type "1/2" or "1/4 "and have it remain as full-size font characters but it keeps converting to fractions which are unreadable at small size. How to defeat the conversion?
  3. I have discovered an issue when pasting text from Mac Pages and Mac Mail documents. My clients usually send word documents for copy that I view in Pages, and I then copy and paste the text into the Designer document. I noticed that some of the text that I copy and paste is thicker and doesn't print as clearly than some others. It took me a while to find any discernible difference in texts because I could have two different text boxes with the same fonts, including font size, weight, spacing, and stroke, etc. I noticed that in the text boxes that have the slightly thicker fuzzier printing text that the typography buttons for ordinals and fractions were greyed out, whereas the text boxes that were more precise and clear were not. Unfortunately, I was not able to solve the problem easily by clicking the ordinals and fractions buttons as they were greyed out. On the clearer text boxes, these buttons were clickable, but not on the others. I've discovered that this happens whenever I cut and paste something from Pages or Mac Mail (have not tried any other programs but I assume it is with any text that is formatted). I've tried this with a number of fonts, and it's the same issue with any font that I use, so the problem is not with a specific font, it's with pasting formatted text from one program into a text box in Designer. If I paste the copy into Text Editor first and then paste it into the text box the ordinals and fractions boxes stay clickable. The only issue then is that I lose all formatting... clients often send documents with partial formatting that definitely saves time. Can anyone provide some insight into what is happening here and how I might solve this issue? Thanks!
  4. Hi Affinity Designers, I have a very simple question, sorry, I was not able to figure this out: How do I transform fractions in my text into a single glyph? My intuition was to insert something like "n/k", highlight it and then click on "Fractions" [1/2] in the "Typography" section in the box that pops up when you hit "Show Typography" (is its name the "Character Box"?). For some reason, the "Fractions" button stays unclickable though. This is the case in all fonts tested, like Helvetica, Arial, Myriad Pro. Can you help me out here? That would be awesome! Cheers, Christoph
