  1. Hey everyone, i technically have a maths question but it is do with tracking/letter spacing. When im designing I usually want certain text to be certain width and height WITH tracking. For example, Original height of text: 20px Original width of text: 177.8px I need the text tracked so that its exactly 240px wide but keeping the 20px height/text size. I can do it manually by setting up a guide at the end of a box thats 240px wide and then incrementally increasing the tracking % of the text by 1% until it meets the centre of the line…. But is there a better way? Is there a formula where you take the original width compared to the finished width and try find the tracking %? Any help for a more efficient and accurate method would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
  2. Hi everybody – I'm new her – excuse for my poor english. I'm a professional Grafik-Designer for Print and Books, a long-time-InDesign-User and also a Teacher for software-courses (for Aff. designer/Photo and planning the first course for AffPublisher). Now I'm testing AffPublisher for som first projects – impressive. I noticed two little problems, which are importent for Pros with Layout: 1. When handling a mass of text in colums – I have to fine-tune the Letter/Glyph Tracking/Spacing for a lot of single rows. Typically it's done by keyborad-shortcuts (alt + left/right arrow) in steps – now by 10‰. In my opinion – this step is to large – 5‰ would be better. Or a possibility, to define your own steps in preferences, like it's possible in InDesign. 2. When working on Text on details – the display of hidden Signs (Points for Spaces – Paragraph-Sign and so on) is very important. I noticed, that there is no symbol for a forced line-break. But that would be very important – you have to find forced linebraeks. thanks a lot Friedrich
