  1. (This appears to be the feature-requests forum, but I've been wrong before. If I picked the wrong location please advise.) I would surely appreciate improvements to the Edit Text Style dialog, which could be made easier on the end-user. Dropdown menu for selecting styles Please consider adding a drop-down menu to this dialog's first panel (the one named, simply, "Style"). Purpose: select some other style for editing. It would be useful having the option to filter the display: all styles, versus paragraph styles only, versus character styles only, versus only styles presently used in the document. UI Font size : -) Text throughout Affinity Publisher's UI is small enough to make things, well, a bit hard on some of us. I'm glad I don't use a 4K monitor — if I did the UI would be so hard to read that I would probably not have purchased the program after using the trial version. Even on this laptop with its relatively small monitor, there is plenty of "screen real estate" to expand a dialog like Edit Text Style if a larger UI font were used. I've noticed that Publisher's Mac version has a way via Preferences to adjust the fonts in the UI. Not so the Windows version. So Windows version users are stuck with the small UI fonts, as-is. (I do already have fonts somewhat enlarged via Windows' own control panel. But enlarging them further using that control will not likely give good results.) Display of specific style information Describing all kinds of data—font, size, color (etc.)—simply as "No change" says nothing about the actual style data. This is unlike the style information displays in word processors or page composition programs I've used in the past. Even in the first ("Style") panel of the dialog, the summary information at the bottom of the dialog (in the "Style Settings" field) includes the actual typeface name only if you are editing "Base." In short: Understanding fully what's in a style has been made unnecessarily difficult. Please consider ways of improving this. Copying style data to the clipboard I'd hoped I could copy the information from the dialog's "Style Settings" field to the clipboard so that I could examine the style information using a more readable typeface, in a text editor or word processor. Each item in the field ends with a semicolon. So, I figured I could replace each semicolon with "newline"—voilà, more readable text. But the information within this field cannot be selected or highlighted (let alone copied). Please either add a "Copy" [to clipboard] button for the field, or at least make the text in it selectable with the mouse (or all of it selected at once by clicking in the field and pressing Control+A) so that the user himself can copy it to the clipboard and paste it somewhere else. Thanks.
  2. I reported this to Serif via email (I wanted to send a screen shot and chose email because I can't add screenshots here due to some forum bug). If anyone has the time to test this, it would be useful to know if anyone else can replicate it. The problem: trying to update an existing paragraph style fails because the "Update <name of style>" command is absent from the menu where it's expected. Procedure: from https://fonts.google.com download the font named Lobster (the one having only a single variant, not the similarly named font having four variants). This should display the font: https://fonts.google.com/?query=lobster (Not my favorite sort of typeface but it's called for in a class I'm taking.) After installing the font: In Affinity Publisher, use the Artistic Text tool to create a small amount of text and format it using the Lobster typeface. Go to the Text Styles panel, locate "Heading 1," and right-click it. If the bug occurs, the menu will not contain Update Heading 1 at all. In my test document I then added text in a new frame, this time using the Text Frame tool. I assigned Arial to the text — and again the Update Heading 1 menu item did not appear. I deleted that text frame, made another one, formatted the text inside it using Arial—and this time the Update Heading 1 menu item did appear. In what way were these two operations different? I have no idea. To keep testing...I added another text frame and used a typeface called Aleo (also downloaded from https://fonts.google.com). With that block of text selected, the Update Heading 1 menu item does appear as expected. This is baffling. Is the disappearing menu item caused by a font problem of some sort? Or is there something I'm doing wrong in assigning formatting to text?
  3. I can assign F1 through F16 for paragraph styles, but pressing the corresponding key with a text cursor in a text frame has no effect. Assigning other shortcuts, say, Ctrl+Y, works as expected. Tested with German keyboard layout on English language setting of Publisher, USB keyboard connected to MacBook. OS is 10.11.6 (El Capitan). Curiously, pressing any F-keys hides the transform controls and frame/column outlines temporarily until the mouse pointer is moved. If this has to do with certain F-keys being taken over by OS shortcuts like launching Dashboard etc., I would expect Publisher to check for that and display a corresponding warning when assigning the shortcut.
  4. I'd like to find a way to remove the default paragraph styles - particularly unused styles - in Affinity Publisher. Is this possible? I prefer to create my own. Thanks in advance.
  5. A common feature in word processors is to define which style follows the application of any given style e.g. 'Heading 1' followed by 'Heading 2' itself followed by 'Body'. I've had a good look around the UI and this forum but cannot find anything. So please add as a suggestion or show me how to do it! PS: at present I'm copying past the first couple of lines of a given section and then replacing the text. Not ideal but it works.
  6. I use a font that has very small punctuation marks. I'd like to create a paragraph style that allows me to mix font styles--so that I can use one font for the letters and another font for all the punctuation. Does anyone know of a way to do this? Thanks.
  7. Hi All, I'd like to set up default paragraph styles, so when I create a new document my styles (Body, Heading 1 etc.) will be ready to use with my favourite typefaces and measurements. Am I missing something or it's no implemented yet? (Publisher 1.7.0.139)
  8. The much improved and more feature rich Paragraph Style in AP is great, but I would like the Affinity Publisher Team to consider to also add: Towards Spine and Away from Spine to the Alignment attributes in the Paragraph Style Editor. This is extremely useful in publications that need to mirror information on facing pages, particularly in annuals like calendars, etc.
  9. Hey guys, I've noticed what I believe is a bug—a client requested using justified text instead of FLRR, so I gave it a shot. It condensed the text a bit too much, so I bumped up the minimum word spacing percentage to about 150% in the Paragraph -> Justification panel, and fairly often, this results in words being cut in half, with a stray first letter being left on the line above. Seemingly only way around it is just adding blank spaces in to move the character to the next line.
