  1. I have installed the latest release - 1.8.3 on windows and everything seems OK until I click on the space bar when adding text which completely closes publisher. There is a solution under the "resolved published bugs" folder saying to navigate to %appdata%\Affinity\Publisher\ and rename the 1.0 folder to 1.0 backup, then relaunch the app, but it did not allow me to rename the folder. It says this will be fixed on the next release, but this was published in October 2019, so it doesn't seem to be fixed. Has anyone got a solution to this? I will work on an older software until this is resolved.
  2. I'm new to Affinity after working with PagePlus from 3 - 9 creating a local full colour magazine of 52 pages. I am struggling to find how to do things. As a volunteer I don't have time to sit through tutorials. I used to just sit with a cuppa and find the answer in the User Guide. I am finding that the language used is different. Using PagePlus was just so easy for me after all those years, but now I am really struggling. HELP!
  3. I really hope that I've missed this option somewhere. When you show / hide guides it does just that - brilliant! Shapes you can toggle the edges in Designer (but not Publisher) with view Outline mode, while not exactly what I'm after it does help locate white boxes on a white background. However I can't find a way to showing / hide edges of text boxes. It would be really helpful, especially in creating templates etc. Many thanks
  4. I have a large volume of text I wish to format into 4 columns over a two-page spread. I copied the text out of Swift Publisher, and pasted it into a single column text box in Affinity Publisher, thinking this would be a routine operation. Instead it has turned into an ordeal. As you can see from the movie I’ve attached, when I select the text box and click on the little column adjustment tool, the text does not reflow in anything remotely resembling a logical way. I thought maybe the text block had picked up some weird invisible characters/artifacts in Swift Publisher, so I dropped it into a T
  5. Does anyone know why the red squiggly line appears under the numbers after the dollar sign is used? (when using the frame text box)
  6. Please add this essential functions in AD: - Background fill colour and stroke colour/width for text boxes. - Convert text boxes back to vector object
  7. First post. Greetings! Generally, the folks at Serif should think long and hard if they want to create an Indesign clone, or rethink the way books, brochures etc are being designed. There are some things Indesign does incredibly well, and master pages are one of them. SUGGESTIONS: 1: One thing I like in particular is the ability to "transfer" objects placed on the master page for editing on the page itself via Shift-Cmd-Click. Otherwise one is limited to how the master page has been set up. EDIT: Ignore. I noticed that this is possible as the master page objects become accessibl
  8. On the .pdf to affinity progs: I transferred an old PagePlus file to .pdf and then into Publisher. Trouble was all my text boxes separated paragraphs and in some cases single lines in a paragraph so that had to be edited singularly. I tried cut and paste into a new text box but it was a nightmare.PP had a WritePlus option where you could edit the whole article. Would be nice in APub. Also AutoJustify was a great feature to make an article fit the frame. I did round off the resulting font-size and spaced accordingly, afterwards.
  9. This is a very tricky bug to recreate. It happens often but not every time when the text box handles are double-clicked. What do I mean about this? Let say you create a text box for a paragraph or verbiage on a document, but the text box is larger than the text you entered, to adjust the text box to match the text length you need to double-click or double-tap the middle bottom handle and this will resize the text box as expected. Similar to Adobe® InDesign™ I'm testing Designer to create documentation for my hosting service, and I'm on my second document, which has more than 40
  10. In the screencast there's three lines of text in different setups. None show a cursor when one enters into the text edit mode. This is aggravating. What's the problem here? There's also an issue with the text tool still being active and getting a V added to a line instead of returning to the move tool.
  11. I'd been using an application called Comic Life to make some presentations. There are some nice aspects of the app, but it's a bit tedious - What I need to do is create text containers that will have stroked outlines as well as fill. I know one can make a text frame out of shapes but I can't seem to apply a stroke (or see one) after a conversion. What am I missing here?
  12. Using new Affinity Designer v1.6 Artboard turns into text box when using Frame Text Tool Create new document with Create Artboard checkbox selected Select Frame Text Tool and hover over Artboard (Artboard will then highlight) Click on Artboard Artboard then turns into a text box (oops)
  13. Maybe I don't understand symbols properly, but I have this situation: Create a symbol that contains several text boxes. The "Sync" button is activated. Move one text box around inside the symbol. Location or size of the text box is never synched. Kind of defies the purpose of using symbols if it only works for shapes. When I change the actual text (content) of the box inside the symbol, that gets synched, but the size and position of the text box inside the symbol doesn't get synched.
  14. 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 t
  15. Hi! I'm a very new user, well sort of. I looked through and found a post that sounded similar to my question but I'm not sure 100% of they are talking about the same thing. In indesign there is a feature when you create text, that you can right click on the textbox and fit frame to content. It basically resets the box to the edges of the text if you happen to stretch it out. This is very helpful is you start to align different text boxes on the page. Is there something in Affinity that will allow me to do these without having to manually drag the box back to the edges of the text? I sc
  16. As a veteran Corel Draw user, after 48 hours i immediately found Affinity Desinger truly fascianating. Its fast, smooth and im glad Affinity adopts solutions from Illustrator and Corel too, and im expremely happy that AFD is available for Windows already. I would be ready to change my workflow to continue daily work with Affinity only but there are few things i really miss. Please consider to implement these things: - Swatches part1: To me its awfully slow to choose the right colour of fill/stroke to an object. This is what i truly hate in Illustrator too. In CorelDraw there is a very sim
  17. or Is there a way to turn Text Frames into Artistic Text. I am trying to quickly resize the frame to the text. Thanks!
  18. I updated AD yesterday evening, and today text in text boxes has somehow collapsed so there is no line-height. Changing the line height does not affect anything. Restarting the application does not make a difference. This is happening to all multi-line text in my document — on the day I need to export it and supply it to the printer! Edit: I jumped the gun a bit. This is _not_ happening to all text boxes. Just some of them. (Which is just as mysterious to me). And to make this even more fun, new text boxes don't seem to be affected by this. (However, copy/pasting the misbehaving text
  19. I want to create a text box, with rounded corners and a background colour. Some of the text, I want to have different background and foreground colours from the rest. Unfortunately my 10 days has expired, so I can not try this. Thanks mcl
  20. Is there a way to make text inside a text box align to center, as it is now it is aligned to top. Didn't see this feature in paragraph or character panel.
  21. When will it be possible to select not only the first character in a text box as snapping candidate?
  22. Using the text tool, when I want to change the text box, change the width, is the letters supposed to stretch with it? How can I change the text box without it affecting the letters? and is it possible to deselect the text tool without having to click on another layer?
  23. Why does a standard return press give me a double line leading? Should be just a single line, equivalent to leading set. Or are there settings that I'm not seeing?
  24. Spanish language text box is not long enough to contain the word opacity, is not a serious problem is only aesthetic but perhaps they occur in other idiomas the same
