  1. I use connected frame text for a calendar layout. Each Day is one frame text - so i can place and align each day-element individually on different calendar layouts. But... how can I edit the complete text? In InDesign I used Ctrl-Y to edit the full text in a simple text editor. How to do this in Affinity Publisher?
  2. I'm not entirely certain if this has already been covered in another thread, but I'm sorely missing the ability to automatically have text resized to fit the frame. This feature does exist in the PagePlus program, so I'm hopeful it's just yet to be implemented? As a side note, the closest reference I have been able to find to this type of feature in the Affinity forums is resizing the frame to the text, which was in an old feature request for the Designer beta. Needless to say, this is rather the opposite of what I would like to happen. Thanks for any feedback you can provide!
  3. Where is the Frame text tool please? I am using Affinity Designer in Pixel Persona so as to try the Daub watercolour brushes and I want to add some text to the image. I have read of the Frame text tool in the Help system and how to use it but I cannot find the tool yet! William
  4. I apologise if this is a known feature or problem but I am stuck: I wish to create a block of text in the shape of a trapezium. When I use the default shape tool all works as expected with the margins of the text following the trapezium shape. However, I wish my shape to resemble a plastic coffee cup, wider at the top than the bottom. When I add frame text to the inverted trapezium it is displayed upside down and back to front. Is there a way of resetting the text entry to the top left and having it flow normally? I have tried to attach a screen shot of the problem. best wishes Simon
  5. Hello! I’d love to make the report more precise but actually all I’m sure of is included in the title ☹️. I use Designer on iPadOS 13.4 (currently on beta, but the problem had been there before it’s release), app version 1.7.3. App crashes during writing, when deselecting text tool (both art and frame), when changing text attributes, whenever during using text actually. I tried really hard to find the specific path leading to crash but I couldn’t. Tried reinstalling app. The crash is so often for me that I was sure somebody have already reported it but as I see I am alone, so my only idea is that the bug is connected with my language settings - my device language is Polish which Designer doesn’t support (and I have another problem with that, which I reported before, unfortunately still unfixed: Link) Thanks in advance!
  6. Hi! How do I remove or change the color of the outlines of a text frame? As you see in the picture, my the boarders of my frame text are outlined in blue. I want to change this color or remove the outline of the frame text. Can I do this, and how? Thanks for the help! / Åsa
  7. Hi guys, I do not manage to change any of the attributes of the surrounding frame of any Frame text. I would like to have a background color and some more padding towards the border. The only way I managed to do so, is to use a formatted square and align artistic text over it. Is there a way to apply formatting to the frame of a fame text? Thanks Lars
  8. Hello, I have installed the new version of 1.8 for all of my Affinity product. However, the moment I press enter to go to the next line the text format changes ?? such a weird behavior after installing the update. The file is attached maybe someone can take a look at it. You can take a look at the video as well. Is it a bug or maybe I am doing something wrong ? Thank you, text-frame-bug.mp4 text-frame-bug.afdesign
  9. I have not used Affinity Publisher much yet but have just started using it and am trying to move a Frame Text without snapping (i.e fine movements). According to the help text at the bottom of the screen when I hover over a Frame Text object it says 'Alt to ignore snapping'. When I try to use this option by holding down ALT and dragging the object it does seem to ignore snapping, but also duplicates it (. Simple task which I don't that my lack of use of publisher is showing or if there is a bug, which if there was Im sure would have been identified by now. N.B. I've just found out how to move without snapping. So just in case anyone else is confused as I was. You first have to click, hold and start moving the object before you press ALT. This worked for me, but I am sure there is an easier way of doing this (and if not there should be).
  10. When I use the FrameText Tool to prepare a text I do not see the text when the textbox is placed on the canvas. Only when the box will be removed into the page, the characters are visible. Now I need to make the other layers invisible to have a clear view. Is it possible to change this manner?
  11. Example: Create a frame text box and choose font Arial for it. Mark part of text and set it to Bold. Now change font for whole text box to Times. All local font attributes, like Bold, Italic etc. are reset to "regular". Please, look at it. Thanks
  12. I have created a doc with a number of text frames in a previous version of the beta. I'm now updated to v1.7.0.162. I have an issue with adjusting the Leading Override whereby the text does not change when the value is changed. It will only jump to between some of the values. I have created a screen video to demonstrate. I have also created a new doc after downloading the latest update and a text frame in this file works perfectly. This is also shown in the video (afpub_bug1) The other problem I am having with text frames is on my existing doc when I drag a frame around the text jumps like it is snapping to certain lines, even with snapping off. Meaning I can never align it to a pixel. In a new doc the text frame moves as expected and can be aligned fine (afpub_bug2). Either I have a setting set somewhere that does this or there is a bug from an earlier version of the beta that's carried itself over into the latest release. When copying the text frames from the old doc to the new one the frames work fine. afpub_bug2.mov afpub_bug1.mov
  13. Affinity Publisher Beta 1.7.0 on MacOS Mohave 10.14 Had been editing existing frame text and afterwards eventually found that the blue selection border was displaying regardless of what I did. Selecting other things or selecting/unselecting the frame text object does not help. Selecting a different layer does not help. Toggling UI does not help. Quitting the app and re-opening the Publisher file does not help. The only way I can get rid of the selection border is to turn the layer off, but it returns when I turn the layer back on. The border does not print; it's just distracting. I have not had this problem with any other file or frame text.
  14. How can I hide the bounding boxes of frame text elements, two of which are shown in magenta in the attached image? The boxes (not the text) come and go willy nilly. I would like to be able to hide them when I want to. I have looked all over and have not seen any mention of them whatsoever. Thanks, john OS X - 10.11.6 AD - 1.5.5
  15. Granted it took Adobe something like 20 years to put this feature into Illustrator, so I'm not expecting this to appear overnight, but is there a way to convert between these two kinds of text types?
  16. In PP there is a facility to insert a variable in a text frame which displays the page number of the next linked frame or the page number of the previous linked frame (i.e., "continued on page n" or continued from Page n"j. This is an important tool when working with text the must span several frames. Is something similar available in Publisher? If not, I think it should be seriously considered, since manually adding the indicator, which probably involves creating a separate text frame, is rather cumbersome.
  17. 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.
  18. Hi guys, I am using the frame text tool, and I don't like the fact that I always have to double click the bottom middle handler to make the actual text field get as large as the text itself. Is there a way to have the text field resize to the text's height automatically? Thanks
  19. Hi guys, When using Frame Text, is it possible to have it simply resize to the words content horizontally? Like simply keep one line, and have the text go as much as you want horizontally, without having to drag the text handler to make the frame wider, to avoid the text going on a new line. Thanks, Chris
  20. Hello everybody! I'm quite new and I was trying to find a way to put down a "feature request". Actually this place is both interesting and confusing, So I hope to do it right: I post here a feature request. It would be great to have the option to center text vertically. So, instead of being stuck in: I'm requesting something like: Would be great to have in the menu: Great work, by the way! Cheers! Jack
  21. Of no great importance but I noticed that for both Art & Frame text blocks flipping them vertically results in upside down text, just as I expect. However, while flipping Art text blocks horizontally causes the text to be written backwards as if in a mirror, like I expect, doing that with Frame text has no effect except for flipping where the extra control handle to change text & frame size at the same time appears. Is this by design or just a minor bug?
  22. Is there anyway to change frame text to artistic text (or the opposite) or must it be recreated?
  23. or Is there a way to turn Text Frames into Artistic Text. I am trying to quickly resize the frame to the text. Thanks!
  24. The "Frame text" help window states "Frame text can be created within rectangular (square) frames using the Frame Text Tool or within any curve or closed shape." but I cannot find any instructions of how to put Frame text in a closed curve or shape. Can I be directed to instructions or a tutorial that shows this Thanks
  25. It seems that if I have a frame text with effects applied if I resize the frame to make edits, the effects scale with it. I am not sure if this can be prevented. I only have a drop shadow applied but if I resize the frame after shadow is applied, the shadow shifts away from text.
