  1. Publisher 1.7.0.145 Launch Publisher Create a new document from the default settings Baseline Grid Manager > enable Use Baseline Grid Snapping Manager > enable Snap to baseline grid Save your blank document Quit Publisher Reopen Publisher by double-clicking the test document saved a moment ago The Snap to baseline grid option has been turned back off, although the other settings remain as they were previously. It doesn't seem to matter if you use View > Snapping Manager, or the Snapping controller in the toolbar across the top of the workspace.
  2. If I use a negative baseline value, I have to click on the original place of the baseline to select it.
  3. Hi, The line (~~~~~~~) under the mispelling word is align on baseline (like a line-height too big).
  4. For the Baseline Grid Manager, there is the option to start the baseline relative to 'Top of Spread', 'Top of Page', or 'Top of Margin'. I have it set to top of margin, which should start it at the start of my margin (as it goes in the ID example, in orange). However, it still starts it at the top of the page (Publisher example in purple).
  5. In the Help file, it is not possible to select the entry under Design Aids > Baseline grids. However, entering "Baseline Grids" as a search does to the Baseline grids page.
  6. Letters with a round form should extend past the grid line (see 2.png for correct alignment). AD aligns the rounded forms to the baseline instead (3.png). Grid 8 / 2 Text field height: 24 Leading/Baseline: 16 (illustrator) -4 (AD) I might be doing it the wrong way, so if there's another way of doing it, let me know.
  7. [in this post, I'm guessing the English on-screen text, because I'm using the German version of Affinity Designer 1.5.2.58 on a German 64-bit Windows 7] Strange behaviour 1 (text baseline): The 'Edit text style' dialog doesn't immediately transfer its baseline settings to the selected text. Try the following: Create a new document with a block text containing one paragraph spread over two lines, format this text with the paragraph style 'Heading 1', and keep the block text object selected. In the text styles palette, right-click on 'Heading 1' and choose 'Edit Heading 1' to show the 'Edit text style' dialog. In 'Position and transformation', change the kerning or character distance in permille. The selected text block immediately reacts and shows the desired changes. Wonderful - that's what should happen. Now change the baseline. Nothing appears to happen. Only when additionally changing kerning or character distance (or anything else), the changed baseline settings become visible in the text object. Sometimes, even kerning or character distance changes in one direction (with the up/down arrows) don't do the trick, but one needs to change these in one and the other direction to make it work properly. Set the baseline to a negative value for the time being (e.g., -24pt), ensure that the -24pt baseline is really working properly, and close the dialog with 'OK'. Strange behaviour 2 (text baseline): The 'Edit text style' dialog transfers the current text's baseline into its edit fields with the wrong sign. Try the following: Right-click on 'Heading 1' in the text styles palette, and choose 'Edit Heading 1' to show the 'Edit text style' dialog again. Though the baseline was previously set the minus 24pt, the edit field now shows a positive 24pt. Changing kerning now by some reason keeps the text's negative baseline intact, though a positive baseline is shown in the edit field. When changing the positive '24pt' baseline to '23pt' with the up/down arrows, nothing seems to happen (see above). Changing kerning additionally now makes the baseline jump from the previous -24pt to a real +23pt. Closing the dialog with 'OK' and opening it again now shows a negative 23pt baseline where a positive one should be shown. Change the baseline to zero and make sure changes are accepted to avoid this confusion for now, and close the dialog with 'OK'. Strange behaviour 3 (distance correction): Try the following: Open the dialog again. Note that the baseline is now displayed as minus 0pt, but we will ignore that... The 'distance correction' (or whatever it is called in English) below the baseline is now shown as '0pt', and the two-line text object looks 'normal'. Changing the '0pt' to '1pt' and back again to '0pt' makes the two text lines completely overlap each other, so that the text is unreadable. Changing the distance correction to 'auto' resolves that problem and makes the text appear 'normal' again. It appears that the default setting for the distance correction is 'auto', but that is not what is displayed when opening the dialog. Instead, an apparently wrong '0pt' is displayed, which leads to confusion. Sometimes, after changing the distance correction to some undesired point value, choosing 'auto' from the drop down combo does not transfer 'auto' into the edit field, but leaves the previously entered point value in it, creating additional confusion. Sometimes, even manually typing 'auto' into the edit field and pressing RETURN throws away the manually entered 'auto' text and replaces it by the previously entered point value, making it impossible to ever get the automatic spacing again... Strange behaviour 4 (font attributes): Try the following: Now show the dialog page where one can select the font family and choose a family that has several attributes available, e.g., regular, bold, italic and bold-italic. The font attributes are still set to 'No change'. Now set the font attributes to 'Regular', switch to the dialog page 'position and transformation' (without changing anything there) and back to the page 'font'. Now, the attributes previously set to 'Regular' appear as 'No change' again. For the second time, switch to the dialog page 'position and transformation' (without changing anything there) and back to the page 'font'. Now, the attributes display as 'Regular'. Very confusing... Over the weeks of using that dialog, I found even more than the above confusing things with it, which I just didn't care to put into writing. Anyway, this dialog seems to be quite confusing and unreliable to me, with lots of strange side effects that make predicting its outcome rather difficult... Andreas Weidner
  8. Hello, As part of an ongoing research to baseline grid composition, my colleague and I recently made Fitbaseline, a calculator that distributes the baseline grid over the document height. This is especially convenient when designing a document with fixed sizes (for example in print) in which you want to evenly distribute the baseline grid. Although we developed a version that applies the calculation automatically for Adobe InDesign, the online calculator is application agnostic so it can be used with Affinity too. However, it would be great to see this concept implemented in Affinity applications such as the upcoming Publisher. I'll make a feature request for this soon. Looking forward to hearing your thoughts! Bauke
  9. Hi I'm very impressed by the grid manager of Designer, and I'm having extra high hopes for Publisher's grid manager. Adobe InDesign has a disappointing grid system out of the box, but there is a top notch commercial plugin for making grids for professional magazine and book design made by a Swedish art director. You can view some videos about it here: https://designersbookshop.com/grid-calculator-pro-edition.html It would be great if Publisher had a comparable grid manager. Please let me know what you think!

  10. I am a web developer and I am use to create my mockups in photoshop. I need to create a grid pattern based in the bootstrap grid system, where the columns are 81px wide with a gap of 31px in between. I have created this pattern already. Now I need to create the baseline patterns. It is any way I can create a line, or a shape, or a layer, to repeat systematically from top to bottom? The lines has to be 27px apart from each other. I attached a screenshot and you will see a very thin and dark line that has to repeat all the way down every 27px. And the question once again; It is a way I can create an auto repeat pattern?
