  1. There are many occasions when one needs to introduce a multicolumn segment within text, or indeed a full blown table. This is currently (1.7.3) very badly supported. After pasting a table into the text, I'm left with no way to flow or wrap text around it, nor can I assign space above or below it. Am left with a dead paragraph. This is basic guys, and needs fixing with a high priority.
  2. It seems to be a bug in table's cell Vertical Alignment setting in conjunction with document's baseline grid setting. The setting "Use Baseline Grid" for the table object is turned off. Vertical Alignment of all table cells is set to "Centre Vertically". The texts in cells has turned off aligning on baseline grid in the paragraph style they are assigned to. In "Baseline Grid - Document" window the option "Use Baseline Grid" is ON. The result is that texts in cells are not aligned in the middle of cells' height but are aligned from top of cells with some strange offset. Turning OFF the option "Use Baseline Grid" in "Baseline Grid - Document" window aligns the text in the cells properly - in the middle of cells' height. Turning ON the option "Use Baseline Grid" in "Baseline Grid - Document" window again aligns the text in the cells wrong again - as described in 5. Open attached example document and try to switch "Use Baseline Grid" in "Baseline Grid - Document" window off and on. The texts in table cells will react to that switching even they should not. The text in text frame above the table don't react to baseline grid setting which is right behavior. Both texts (in white cells and in text frame) has same paragraph style applied. In attached example there are white cells with text formatted with "Body" paragraph style which is based on "Base" group which has "Align to Baseline Grid" turned off. Then there is green filled cell with text formatted with "MyStyle" which is based on [No Style] and has also set "Align to Baseline Grid" to off. I encountered this behavior in Publisher 1.8.0.502 (Beta) on both platforms (win and mac) and also in recent release 1.7.3.481 of Publisher on win (and mac too). Attached example document was created in win version of Publisher 1.8.0.502 (Beta). example.afpub
  3. Hello everyone, I'm new in using Affinity. Can anyone tell me, how can I set changing line colors in tables? In Indesign there's a possibility to set changing colors in table lines at a table format. Does this option exist in Affinity, too? Thanks in advance ;-)
  4. This is a suggestion to improve working with tables on Publisher. Currently Publisher preserve table width as default. This causes a lot of trouble with the tables layout, because each time you touch any single aspect of any column, all columns change to readjust for table width. Your painstakingly set columns widths goes nuts. All columns are now wider on narrower without your consent, and trying to re-set all column settings is a pain, because you set a column width and it gets modified when you change the next column. There are some ways this could be improved: A checkbox or dropdown menu to mark width of a column as "FIXED" so it doesn't change automatically. This way, you can have some columns fixed and others flexible. Deactivate table width preservation at all, as a default or as an option on table pane. Is better to change a column to fix the table than retouch all columns because table width didn't change Currently, Publisher manage tables as Word does, and we all know how painful is to manage tables in word. On this, again, InDesign manages tables a lot better, with options for minimun, auto and exact column widths
  5. I'm working with some tables in AFPub. I set up a custom size document: 5.5" x 6.75", margins .01 on all sides, and I drew a table across the page. This page is set up in Landscape mode. I merged some cells and then set the horizontal and vertical sizes and alignment. At that point, the app crashes. AFPub Crash Log.txt
  6. I would like to suggest a change to the way tables work in APub. As it is now I can set an exact value for the width of a column, but when I enlarge the table by dragging the handle on the right, all column widths are changed evenly. However I would want for the widths of the columns to be retained, especially when I set an exact value. In my opinion there needs to be the option at least to resize responsibly (as is the case now) or not. I am used to the way Indesign handles it, and it is just much more precise and easy to use. The same problem also occurs when I want to add a column in the middle of an existing table: instead of the columns to the right of the inserted column moving to the right, all columns are resized. This is just very annoying and I want an option to fix the width of a column, at the least when I have set exact values for the width. I am all for new solutions, but the solution for tables just does not make much sense to me most of the time.
  7. 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. Before: After cleaning up: Perhaps this is possible in AP and I'm missing something?
  8. Is there way to flow the table over more pages? like when i add one more row on page one and the last row, that would otherwise be out of the page, flows to page 2 ?
  9. When you attempt to make a hyperlink (for PDF exporting and the like) inside a table, there is the following bug. Select any portion of the text, so long as it includes the last character in the cell. Make any hyperlink. The hyperlink will be made not on the text itself, but on the entire cell (and the next cell). If the text is in the last cell in the row, this bug worsens, making the hyperlink span two entire rows. I've been working around by adding spaces after the text. If you delete the space afterwards, a hyperlink won't become bugged. I'm not sure of the actual coding fault at play here, the only thing I can think of is that the hyperlink creation code is looking for control characters to its right (for some reason) and grabs some internal control character for the table. Honestly though I have no idea. It's kind of a workflow nightmare and took me ages to figure out what was wrong.
  10. Is there a way to import a Microsoft word table into a Publisher document while retining the Word table formatting
  11. Is it impossible to make an Affinity Publisher table's cut and pasted data autoflow to the next frame?
  12. I have master pages with a table. Pages have master applied and then custom information input on them. Discovered error on table ( an extra line on the border on a few cells) I edit the Master but the page does not update. If I clear the master (and lose the custom info I've input) and re-apply it is fine. Is there a proper procedure to force refresh pages with masters applied without losing the custom text I've input? Unchecking "replace" existing creates a bolded effect on the whole page. Update 1: Fiddled more and its as if a large chunk of my pages lost their "link" to their master. So when Master is updated nothing updates on the page. My current doc the 1st 2 pages update but the subsequent pages do not. I manually updated 30 of my pages so far by clearing and reapplying master but this cannot be the only way to "refresh" the links. Cannot reproduce the issue yet on another. Update 2: Updated to 1.7.2 still same issue Update 3: Side note that when I duplicate a master that has already been renamed - the duplicate has the exact same name as the original -- seems it would be useful that the duplicate indicates COPY or other indicator so that the wrong master is not edited by accident. If you do not rename the Master it does change the Name for example I just created Master X and when duplicating it made Master Y. Update 4: I had a thought to create an additional master that had all my workbook text in it, then overlay (by not replacing existing master) on the 1st master on each page, which would allow me to quickly "re-apply" the necessary master to fix my original issue, so I created a new master and created a few dummy "Options" in my layers (Option 1, Option 2, Option 3) to enable as needed once applied to the appropriate page. However once this new master is applied to the page I am unable to change the options as they are greyed out and seems to be permanently locked. So thats a no go at this moment. Thanks!
  13. I'm having a persistent issue with positioning some Tables on the page, and I can't seem to rectify it. I noticed while placing new tables that on occasion the table would align to the left edge of a column and is very difficult to change that behaviour. I think that layers are part of the problem - I've been able to correct most issues by fiddling with them, but not really understanding the problem in the first place, none of the fiddling made sense even though it worked. I've setup guides to regulate where the left and right edges of the table should be located. The right table edge snaps nicely to the guide. When I try to align the left table edge, the table appears to snap to guide as expected, but when I stopping depressing the mouse button, the whole table jumps back to the left margin and doesn't respect the already snapped right edge moving it left as well. I'm off to read about layers. While trying to deal with this I noticed that it appears my Master Page has been applied more than once - it appears in the layer list twice. Using the check marks to the right to change layer visibility seems to indicate that some of my content is using the first instance of the layer, while others are using the second instance. Any help much appreciated! Dale
  14. The copying content from Excel's multiple cells and tables is not working well. When following steps from help the content is not copied (paste special) to the Pulisher's table. When the table (from Excell 2016) is saved in older format e.g. Excel XLS 2003+ and then reopened in the Open Office, then copied into the Publisher -- everything is working properly. In case of Excel 2016+ it was possible to insert the content to only one cell. Does anyone have encountered this error?
  15. Hi there, I'm trying to figure out how to align text within a table so the columns are aligned to a decimal point. In Adobe InDesign this can be done using Tabs, but I can't seem to access Tab Stops within a table in Publisher, only when using the Text Frame Tool. Does anyone have an idea how I could accomplish what I'm trying to do? Thanks!
  16. Hi, I have noticed that affinity publisher crashes when I jump from table to table. For example I have one row selected in table A - with this selected I then decide to go to another table - table B. It instantly crashes. Mac and publisher are on the latest updates. See video attached for demo. Thanks https://www.loom.com/share/f55c2d38271348ea960fd7bc1d2d24c6
  17. Is there any way to import tabular data (like a csv or a table in a textfile) into a table in Affinity Publisher? I can't seem to link or place a file in any format. If I try to copy the data, it always lands in one table-cell. Love the Affinity-products, by the way. Great work!
  18. I built a table in another publisher document. I needed to pull that table from the old document (created on artboards) to a new one (created as spreads). The new document crashed after 300 seconds (during the autosave) and I chose to open the recovery, which had no edits done up to the attempted autosave. I re-embedded the table, adjusted the size of the table to fit into my smaller spread, and everything works fine until the program tries to autosave or until I attempt to save manually. I've tried: 1) Save As to rename the document 2) Deleting the table and everything associated with the table (paragraph and character styles, table formats, the table itself, content within the table's cells) 3) Deleting non-system fonts that have nothing to do with the project 4) Converting the table to curves 5) Opening the publisher file in Designer Persona Only 6) Splitting the table into sections 7) Clearing all contents and style of the table to default table settings 8) Restarting the computer 9) Saving the document to the desktop or another location My computer is a 30k workstation with plenty of ram, cpu and graphics processing. I'm exporting a crash report It seems I can no longer modify this file unless I manually copy all the content over to a clean document with the exception of the table itself and the spreads span over about 90 pages. 2fb92aa6-3692-4eee-8516-5cd1d8a016a2.dmp
  19. Hello, Someone knows if the tables in AP will allow applying simple formulas of numerical calculation (something similar to what Excel does or ID through plugins: http://www.dtptools.com/product.asp?id=atid&more=features). That would be great! Thank you
  20. This happens consistently when I try to manipulate tables inside Affinity Publisher 1.7.1 on MacOS X Mojave 10.14.5: Randomly, while editing documents, when I try to edit a table by double clicking using the Move Tool, the controls that show the table's column and row numbering and the controls that allow you to add rows/columns by dragging them, disappear (as in, are not shown anymore around the table). The only way to get them back is by closing and re-opening Affinity Publisher. This makes working with tables a real pain. The first few times after re-opening the application everything seems to work as expected, but after a while this situation repeats itself. Every. Single. Session. Am I missing something or is this indeed a seriously annoying bug?
  21. It would be good to have a built in Charts and Graphs tool that would convert Table entry into such forms. Apple Pages has such feature for example.
  22. I recently purchased Affinity Publisher to use in lieu of InDesign. I'm trying to put together a document which is very table intensive, but as I tried to create a table, the table would be created, but there were no row and column headings (e.g. A, B, C, 1, 2, 3). I hunted around for a toggle command, thinking I did something wrong, but couldn't find anything. There's a lot of things, like resizing columns, that would be far easier if I could click on those headings. I don't know if I stumbled into a bug or I'm doing something dumb in a new program. Any help is appreciated. I've attached a screen shot for illustrative purposes. Again, I can select cells, but the row & column headings don't show up. Any thoughts? Thanks! I'm running version 1.7.1on MacOS 10.14.5.
  23. Hey guys, Loving the Publisher Platform. I've been using the program all week and along the way I've come across a few buggy issues. I didn't take any screen shots but Ive tried to describe them the best I can. See below: 1. When using tables, for whatever reason if I delete a row/column it makes whatever the last remaining row/column cell on the table really large to the point it goes off the screen. I have to delete the table and restart it. 2. The guides manager menu item, sometimes doesn't show up. On some instances it takes me 3 or 4 attempts to get the Guide Manager window to even prompt. 3. There was a major issue when I was typing into a text frame, I would type a normal paragraph and if I hit the keyboard 'Delete' button it would delete a character, but as soon as I started typing again, after that delete it would only show random square glyphs instead of spaces or letter as I typed. Even when I used the keyboard arrows keys (left & right arrow keys) to try and move across, it would type glyphs as if I was typing letters or number. I couldn't get it to stop, so I had to delete the text frame and restart the program. 4. The final bug I noticed was the text style buttons didn't work, I tried to 'Superscript' an ordinal (make the TH or ND on a date smaller....4th, 2nd) it only worked once for me. Initially I thought it might be a font issue but it happened on all the fonts I tried it on.
  24. There is currently no way to flip a table horizontally (i.e., to reflect a facing page) and have text in proper format. Currently no workaround other than manually editing the facing master page. See post below.
  25. How to link tables like it is possible in Adobe Indesign ?
