  1. I know I shouldn't really do this, but after experimenting with the pub18-502 beta and its amazing idml import, I decided to jump into the cold water and use the beta for a small but urgent project (today) in real-life. This way you actually see all shortcomings because you highly depend on it to function correctly. So my Problem is with placed .afdesign files. I have 8 afdesign-Icons linked in my one-page document. Also, there are some text-styles imported via idml which also have weird anomalies*. At some point I opened the triangle in the layers panel and it immediately showed the beach ball followed by the crash report. Then, after recovery and redoing the lost part of the work, I imported another, highly complex .afdesign file into publisher and after maybe ten clicks same crash again. So I want to report this here and in the meantime I will refrain from importing this AFDesign file again and instead convert it to pdf or so... *text style anomalies: when changing one of two hierarchical textstyles, the other one changes the font-weight. The problem is a combination of the font Helvetica Neue LT which has many font weights combined with publishers style preferences, which differentiate between FONT WEIGHT and FONT TRAITS. My Helveticas weights are listed as Traits. And secondly, the default style is not Roman or Book but "Condensed Light"... which is also bad...
  2. Please, add "Baseline Grid" in "Leading" together with "Exactly", "Multiple", "At Least"... This way body text will be linked with baseline grid and will follow its changes smoothly without jumpings. In this case "Align to Baseline Grid" will be no more needed.
  3. Text Style changing Problem (macOS Mojave 10.14.6, Affinity Publisher 1.7.1) Hi guys, I have a very bad problem concerning text styles in Publisher: Each time when I want to create a new text style or changing and saving an existing text style itself, Affinity Publisher crashes completely. I had this problem already during the Beta phase and thought the final version would solve the problem, but unfortunately not. I deinstalled and reinstalled Publisher several times, but the error remains. I have NO problems with other programs at all, only Affinity Publisher crushes when working on the text styles... I have installed several third party fonts... but I never had problems with that fact before in macOS. I have no more idea what to change or what to do. Does anybody can help me or has an idea? Best regards, Mac
  4. Hitting the text styles tab causes the program to crash. Every. Time. It is making Publisher almost unusable. Please fix soon. I have Publisher 1.7.1 running mac osx high sierra 10.13.6.
  5. 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.
  6. Reusing styled text frames My proposal: Let paste any text to existing structure of frames with styled text and retain its properties (fonts, size, colour etc. - simply styles). Divider for next style would be 'End of Paragraph'. My reason: In newspaper type of work you deal with multiple articles utilizing identical structure. Everyone of them has same style of title, subtitle, perex and then paragraphs of text. Drawing text frames and styling texts for these again and again on every page and in every new issue is painful. Best way to implement: Drag 'n' drop text file (word, rtf, plain text file, etc.) to existing styled TextFrame/TextFrames. It'd be fastest way probably. How it's done in Indesign: With use of 'Object Styles' you can format whole article with one click. Of course, function 'Span columns' is integral with this task in Indesign, so you're good with just one text frame for article. My proposal is not fully equivalent but would be great help for time being.
  7. One of the things I need to do regularly is produce a list of abbreviations. I'm setting up a text style using initial words settings (love this - it is so useful for knitting patterns). However, one thing I really want to do is preserve the first character on each line as lower case unless I specifically type it in as a capital, as I want the abbreviations to appear in the same form they are used in the text. Some are all lower case, others all capitals (eg k2tog, pm, skp, WS). It's always a pain to have to go in and replace capitals with lower case, as these can reset when typing or editing, and are very easy to overlook. Any suggestions gratefully received. This is what I want to achieve: k2tog knit 2 sts together WS wrong side Occasionally, the text also continues onto a second or third line. If at all possible I'd like the start of this text to automatically be in line with the text starting after the tab stops in the first line of the entry. However, I can understand if this is not possible with the tabs being between text, as I can deal with this manually if needed. I'ven now worked out how to do this last task using the text frame ruler.
  8. In the Text Styles dialogue box, the "Current Formatting" window at the top of the box appears to be smaller that any other text box I've seen in Publisher. Preview text is actually cropped off as shown in the screenshot below. Just curious, is this by design, or should this window be the same size as all other text boxes?
  9. Hi, I am obviously not a DPS expert. I did use a few times ID for books, flyers, posters etc. When I dealt with these tasks, I often did set up my text style after creating a text frame and adjusting the paragraph as I wanted. All I had to do is to create the style in the style panel... so easy. In APub, I assume I can do the same with new styles but can I (and if so, how) modify a pre-existing style by selecting my text like in ID or QXP ? I can not find the way to do this... I can apply a pre-existing style but can not modify it according to my text/paragraph. Thanks. Cheers, Patrick
  10. One thing that annoys me with text styles is, whenever I start a document I already have some text styles included in the document. However useful this might be in some cases, I never use them, preferring to start from scratch. It would be nice to have the option to start without predefined styles, either as a global option in preferences, or as a document option.
  11. I would LOVE to have quick key commands for justifying text as well as applying text styles. Commands such as command-shift-c (Mac) for centering text blocks and selected text would be a great time saver!
  12. I often work on multi-page documents that require text blocks to reverse from black to white depending on the image underneath the text on that particular page. I may also employ subheads that use Paragraph Rules (a line beneath the subhead and the subsequent body copy). In InDesign, I would set up a Paragraph Style defining the text as Black, and make sure the Paragraph Rule is set to "Text Color". Then on the pages where I need to override that with White, I simply use a Character Style. When the text turns white due to the character style, the paragraph rule updates to white accordingly. In APub, I see that instead of Paragraph Rules we use Decorations. However there is no way I can see to set the Decoration to inherit the Text Color. This is forcing me to create two sets of Paragraph Styles just to control that single line. Is there a way to make a check box that tells APub to color the decoration according to the text color?
  13. In a long text document I have a number of different image types I wish to caption. I want to be able to automatically number these — for example: Figure 1. Lorem ipsum. Figure 2. Alice went down. Chart 1. Latin alphabet. Chart 2. Characters in Alice. Map 1. Holy Roman Empire. Map 2. The rabbit hole. Question 1.) I am trying to create named text styles for these: Font, size, style, automatic numbers (presumably based on whether I name my style Figure Title, Chart Title, Map Title), etc. How do I get the word "Figure" or "Chart" or "Map" to appear before the automatic number? It seems no matter what I do, the sequence is: 1. Figure. ; 1. Chart. ; etc.. I do not see where or how to add an automatic field with the necessary label before an auto number, then to be followed by individual identifying text in each caption title, terminated by a period. I would usually be adding longer explanatory text after the period, but in a different style such as Caption Body. That is, my actual caption (title + body) might be: Map 2. The rabbit hole. Map and cross-section showing the various locations Alice entered, including citations for actual chapters in Carroll's book. Question 2.) If I am able to create these styles, then what is the procedure to create a "List of Figures", "List of Charts", "List of Maps" — with page numbers — (in addition to my TOC created by Heading styles) at the beginning of my long document? I would presume this might be in the TOC creation panel, based on searching for the 3 text styles I created when adding the image titles. The longer explanatory text, being in a different style (Caption Body), should not appear in these lists of image titles. I have not found this addressed in the manual. I think my answer is already in there, but I do not see where/how. I need help with some sort of step-by-step process; I am clearly missing something. Thanks for this very interesting program.
  14. If to select several paragraphs with paragraph style applied to them and there is no word with local formatting in the beginning of the very first selected paragraph but all the words with local formatting are just inside paragraphs, the “Reset Formatting” button is grayed out and there is no “legal” way to remove text local overrides. The way around: you have to intentionally make the very first word of the very first paragraph something like bold or italic then after this the “Reset Formatting” button is active.
  15. Sorry, but this whole Text style thing is somehow stil difficult to me.. Following problem. I had to copy some chinese text and english text from an indesign document to my publisher document to see if i could reproduce it and make styles of it.. First i had to install "SimHei" as a font, which was missing in indesign . Well that seemed to work.. I made textframes in publisher, copied the text from Indesign to publisher and made a new paragraph style from it.. than i try to make my headlines bold.. which worked fine so far, but when i tried to resave my headline style, the Chinese text is killed and i only get some squares.. hmmm.. So what do i missunderstand here.. is this a limitation of SimHei, or do i make something else wrong ? Ill put the screenshots..
  16. When using multiple decorations for a style you can not access the second decoration from the pull down menu. It is fine when first creating the second decoration but once you save and get out of the style editor and then go back to edit it later you can not access the other decorations.
  17. I have not found (yet) any request (except for one) for other ways how to apply text styles. I Personally use very often Dropper tool or Quick Apply function (InDesign). Of course, that I also use own keyboard shortcuts, but mentioned alternatives are often really useful, super fast and easy. It would be Great to have them...
  18. I have created a new document and I'm in the process of setting up the Master pages for the document. I added a text frame under the main body text frame to hold the footer information. A new text style is created named Box. When I go into edit the text styles for that Text Style, I'm unable to click OK to save the changes, or Cancel to leave the box. Nothing happens. I was editing the tab stop properties when I tried to click OK to save my changes. Also note that the + symbol under the box where the tab settings are stored looks odd.
  19. I would like to make the following suggestions for Master Pages: - Create/Setup text styles (Body, Header1,...) on a Master Page so that the pages based on this Master Page use them. - Prefdefine Default Fonts/ Colors on a Master Page. - Apply a Master Page to another Master Page to share common objects/settings (and text styles...). - The possibility to export and import a set of Master Pages including the settings, to use them in another projects. Thank you.
  20. When I have the Text Styles list shown, I was able to select multiple items. I don't think you wanted that. dave
  21. I frequently copy and paste items between Affinity Designer files. When I do that, Affinity Designer helpfully adds these items' Text Styles. There's a catch, though. I end up with superfluous text styles that do the exact same thing (e.g. "Caption", "Caption 1", "Caption 2", "Caption 3", etc.) I'm not sure why identical Text Styles are added in the first place, but it highlights the need for deeper functionality. Ideally, I'd be able to Find and Replace Text Styles (e.g. "Caption 1" --> "Caption"). This would be helpful even without duplicate Text Styles. Without this function, it seems to me that effective maintenance of Text Styles is impossible.
  22. I just had a scenario with nothing selected in my artwork, but two paragraph styles highlighted in the Text Styles palette. Confused what this was supposed to mean, I started clicking around the styles and found that the second of the paragraph styles toggled off when selecting a *character style*. It seemed as though Affinity Designer was confused about whether it was a character or paragraph style.
  23. I'm now an official convert to Affinity Photo and love it. Just cancelled my membership with Adobe for Photoshop, I'm that confident it will definitely do everything I need. I do have one question though, I've invested a chunk of change in photoshop styles over the years and would like to continue to use them. Are there plans to allow the import/usages of the Adobe Styles? That would make it 100% perfect for me. Cheers Dan
  24. Hi guys, Just wanted to report a bug. When using text styles, especially on Artistic Text, AD becomes very laggy, it gets a 2-3 seconds delay for a select object action for example. Thank you, Chris
  25. If you create text style Text > Text Styles > Create Paragraph Style or Text > Text Styles > Create Character Style it brings up a menu window called "Edit Text Styles". It is the same menu, offers the same choices and can be made into Character or Paragraph Styles. All the two Text menu choices (above) do is set the base setting in Edit Text Styles. I think. Considering how mean Serif can be putting menu options in menus (Like a nest command) why lavish so much menu space on text styles? Personally I nest layers far more often than I create text styles.
