  1. Hello, this is a fantastic piece of software and it's been a joy to use so far. However, one large frustration I have is handling formatted text content from other places. Steps to Reproduce Copy text from a webpage, an existing PDF, RTF, Microsoft Word / Apple Pages / Google Docs document Paste into a text box inside Publisher or Copy text from witthin a text box inside Publisher Paste into a Microsoft Word / Apple Pages / Google Docs document Expected Behaviour Hyperlinks are present Newlines / paragraphs are preserved Actual Behaviour Hyperlinks disappear All newlines are formatted as paragraph breaks
  2. I am looking to copy the formatting of typesetting from one paragraph to another. It is easy in InDesign using the eyedropper tool, not so easy in Quark. Does anyone have a suggestion please how to do this in Affinity Publisher? I can not find it in the help dropdown. Thank you.
  3. I am a newcomer to Affinity Publisher. I have created a document that is intended to print front-back on two legal size pages (four pages, eight pages when folded not booklet. The program Showa ll four spreads, but when I try to print, it will print only two of the four spreads when set on "entire document". It acts as if I have set it for "odd pages only" even though "entire doc" is set. Is this a bug, or am I doing something wrong? System". Mac OS X current version. Affinity:Publisher: current version (1.7.3). Printing to HP lM452dw laser printer. The only workaround I am able to do is print page individually to PDF then combine them into pairs using Graphic Converter image processing software (which is great, BTW). I have attached a screenshot of the entire document in thumbnail form, showing the four spreads, When I print it it will print only the first and third spreads. Thanks for any counsel.
  4. This drives me crazy! When entering text in a text frame Publisher always capitalizes the first word of a sentence and I can't find a way to turn this off! I type in the first word of a sentence and all is fine (first screenshot) and the moment I press the space bar the first character in the word gets capitalized (second screenshot). The same also goes for tables, by the way. Anyone here knows if this can be turned off or is it a known bug?
  5. Is there a way to keep all of the formatting on a TOC text area after you update the TOC content? When I update the TOC area it resets any new tabs and specific character formatting I have applied to the page numbers. Also, is there possibly a way to have the TOC page numbers appear without the associated text? Thanks!
  6. 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?
  7. Is there a way to import a Microsoft word table into a Publisher document while retining the Word table formatting
  8. Hello, I'm thinking about getting Affinity Photo but I have a question. I format my PC and reinstall Windows every 6 months. Will reinstalling Affinity Photo every 6 months be a problem? Will I be able to reinstall it as many times as I want? Thanks
  9. I am in the midst of creating a multi-page test document and I am stumped trying to find a paragraph rules option. Is such an option available in the Beta? If so, where can I find it? Otherwise I really do hope it will be included in a future update.
  10. It might be nice if the Initial Words text formatting functionality was extended to allow the user to specify whether the End Character(s) were displayed or not. This would allow us to have variable-length Initial Words formatting while using the same paragraph style instead of needing one style for each slightly different scenario. See the attached image which, I hope, explains it better. P.S. This is a very low priority suggestion. If it happens it happens, if it doesn't then that's fine. Just 'popping it into the pot'.
  11. It might be nice if there was also - along with Initial Words - a Final Words formatting scenario with exactly the same options as Initial Words but from the other end of the paragraph. The attached image shows a few examples of use but there are probably more. Not really sure how useful this would be to most people but it would have been useful to me on at least one occasion. P.S. This is a very low priority suggestion. If it happens it happens, if it doesn't then that's just fine.
  12. Maybe this is in the pipeline with Affinity Publisher, but something I frequently seem to need is the ability give frame text a solid background colour. I currently do this by grouping a filled rectangle with the frame text in the layers panel. This works well until you apply a transparency which is also then applied to the text as well. So my request is to have the ability to change the formatting of frame text including the background (including transparency) and line style. It would also be useful for alignment purposes to have the option to see the frame of the frame text when viewing in Outline view mode when not selected.
  13. Hi! I know this is far from being prioritized, but it would be great if there was a way to write math in Affinity Designer without having to manually draw lines for fractions, etc. Perhaps implementing just a few typesetting features from LaTeX would greatly help in my scenario, which I will most likely still encounter a lot of times in the future. Thanks!
  14. Hi, I recently bought the Affinity Designer Workbook and have really been enjoying the practical examples and working my way through it. Just a minor error that I'm not sure has been reported or not (I don't have Facebook or Twitter to contact directly so posting on here) but I noticed a formatting error on page 109 - half of the words at the start of each line seems to be cut off a bit. I included a screenshot below. I have to say that the book is excellent so far, I've always found most design software to be quite intimidating and time consuming to learn but the workbook is getting me to grips with the software really quick and it's been surprisingly intuitive to use. If I notice anything else as I work through the book, I'll use this thread to continue posting.
  15. I want to paste the text, but keep the Affinity format.
  16. Hello, Was wondering where on earth the paragraph spacing controls had gone to, then I noticed they were simply not there anymore! See attached screen grab. I can't now change paragraph spacing, which is a bit annoying. Is this a known bug, can I back date to 1.4? Help! Carl
