  1. There are two types of baseline grids: a) the document level baseline grid; b) text frame level baseline grids. When the user selects to “Use Baseline Grid” via the Baseline Grid Manager, that baseline grid is for the whole document but it can be overridden if the user decides to add a Baseline Grid via the “Use Baseline Grid” option in the Text Frame Panel. At the moment they are both called “Baseline Grid”. Would it be better if the document level baseline grid was called the Document Baseline Grid and the text frame baseline grid called the Local Baseline Grid (or Frame Baseline Grid)? That might help the user distinguish between the two. It would also make explaining them a bit easier. It’s not a big thing but I thought I’d ask the question.
  2. An absolutely essential Baseline Grid functionality is to align text with: «All Lines» or «First Line Only». Making a Magazine without the «First Line Only» is quite annoying. Would be great if you could this essential layout feature implement in version 1.
  3. 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.
  4. There seems to be a glitch in baseline grid in my copy of. Publisher version 1. 7. 1. 404 Windows 8 64 bit. In the attached file the grid is only showing on pages 1 and 2, this is the same throughout a 44 page publication. which this example is extracted from. If I create a new publication using default settings it seems to be ok. Also on page 4 it will not show filler text as expected. 4 pages Vol 34 1 Aug 2019.afpub
  5. I have been attempting to reproduce InDesign typesetting prior to migration. Latest problem is with the baseline grid. I hope we all agree there should be only one such grid in any single document. Publisher seems to create more than one and then misalign them, on each side of a spread. (MacOS 10.9.5 + Publisher 1.7.1) Having auto flowed text into my new document, I noticed misalignment at the base of the third page (RHS of first spread after a single page starting a chapter). I was then astonished to see a second baseline grid appear within the RHS text frame, misaligned with the document one. Screenshot attached. Have to say also that 1) it is far from clear to what entity the grid belongs (it appears as an optional attribute, with setup, to document and text frame), and 2) display is similarly confusing since it appears covering whole page when start from Top Margin is selected. I'm afraid this is damning. It renders the package unusable for the typesetting of any book. If it is down to an older version of operating system then fine, but please don't claim to support it. I cannot upgrade the system, losing InDesign, unless I know issues like this, and the other two I've posted (failure of Insert Section Name, odd behaviour of tab) are resolved in the later version. You guys at Infinity should know there's a lot of people looking over our shoulders out here, as early adopters. Speedy resolution at least of the fatal flaws will make a huge difference to take up.

  6. This happens to me in a MacOS 10.14.5 and latest version iPad Pro. If i don't select the margins while creating a new document, i can't create them in the Guides Manager. If i use margins while creating a new document, i can't modify it in the Guides Manager. Sometimes i can see the baseline grid,... sometimes not. I need to restart designer in order to see them.
  7. Baseline Grid: Relative to TOP MARGIN = 0 Start Position Let the Baseline guides visualisation behave like in InDesign. It is very confusing and an unnecessary visual clutter that the baseline guides are visualised outside of the Margins. That's not what Book and Magazine Designers want and expect if the Baseline Grid is set to: « Relative to TOP MARGIN = 0 Start Position ». Suggestion: At least add a checkbox the allows the user to hide the baseline guides outside of the TOP and BOTTOM MARGINS (Type Area). Check how InDesign handles the Baseline Grid visualisation if set Relative to TOP MARGINS (see attached PNG). InDesign shows the baseline guides only inside the Type Area. That's exactly what Magazine and Book designers want and expect for the setting «Baseline Grid: Relative to TOP MARGIN = 0».
  8. Hi, When I enable Baseline Grid with Publisher 1.7.0.145 (latest update) then select the text and start scroll using the mouse it crashes. See Video: https://www.dropbox.com/s/1oi1ahi8ad0ncaw/AF Publisher Basline Grid Text Seleted Quits.mov?dl=0 However I then opened another Publisher document and enabled Baseline Grid and selected the text again and started scrolling and it was fine (that file was the one your dev guys fixed as it wouldn't open properly see link to post: Could this be to do with the bug your dev guys found with files not opening and running properly? Thanks, Oliver
  9. How can i edit a table's text without having it attaching to baseline grid? now when i modify my table size and dimensions, it looks very wacky.
