  1. I reported this bug in the Publisher Beta forum a week ago and didn't receive a response. It is also a bug in the retail version 171.404. If I use the Place function to import text into a publisher file, the auto spellcheck identifies words not in the dictionary but is unable to add those words using "Learn" It cannot "Unlearn" either. The History shows that even if the word is fully highlighted it isn't being detected and Publisher records it as an empty string. This only seems to occur when the Text Frame is created in a Master Page and not when a Text Frame is created on a document page. Publisher Spell Check Test Doc.afpub Publisher Spell Check Test.docx Extra - Learn doesn't work at all on pages in Text Frames created on Master Pages - Major bug in my view.
  2. From using and experimenting with the spelling and find-and-replace functions in Affinity Publisher 1.7.3.481, the following behaviours seem like bugs – or at the very least, strange, unhelpful, and unintuitive – to me. Am I alone in thinking this? Set-up A test file is attached; or... create a new document; make a text frame and fill it with some text (real text, not filler text). Put a few instances of the word “cat” into the text, in different places. Test 1 Go through these menu items: Text > Spelling > Show Spelling Options In the dialogue box (entitled “Spelling”), type the word “cat” (without quotes) into the upper box. Press the Find Next button. Nothing happens. Why not? If you now repeatedly click the Change button, it repeatedly inserts whatever is in the upper box, into the text This is not really a "change" operation (changing one thing into another thing). It's just a "text insert" function, with no apparent purpose, or relationship to spelling options (nor to find-and-replace). Test 2 Close the Spelling dialogue opened in Test 1. Put a few instances of the word “horse” (without quotes) into the text, in different places. Open the Find and Replace dialogue by typing Ctrl F. Type the word “horse” (without quotes) into the Find box, and “pony” (without quotes) into the Replace with box. Nothing happens, which seems strange; it would seem logical for the cursor to move to, and select, the next instance of the word “horse”, but it doesn’t – unless and until you click the Find button. When you do that, the instances of the word “horse” appear, in context, in a list beneath the Find / Replace / Replace all buttons. Now click the Replace button, repeatedly. Each found instance of the word “horse” is replaced by “pony”, but the list of found instances does not update. It continues to show, and cycle through with each click of Replace, the original list of instances of “horse”…. ….unless, or until, you click the Replace all button. Only then does the list update, by (as would be expected) disappearing completely. bugs query - affinity publisher spelling options and find and replace.afpub
  3. OS X 10.13.6, AFPUB 1.7.3. I noted that the word "Rec" as in "rec room" was learned and no longer has a red line underneath. However, in a different part of the document "rec" is spelled with a lower-case "r" - this has a red "spelling error" line under it. And, when I try to "learn spelling" that option is not available. Instead, the option to "unlearn spelling" is presented. So AFPUB thinks that word has been "learned" but still underlines in red the lower-case version. Catch-22.
  4. There is one unusual thing about "Spelling Options". I encountered one word that was misspelled and clicked "Learn" and the red line underneath disappeared. I exited the "Spelling Options" and again invoked Spelling Options - it jumps to that same word but the word is now NOT underscored. The word is in the Mac English spelling database "en" . The same thing happens after closing the document and quitting AFPUB, then reopening the same document - jumps to that same (not underscored) word. In fact, if you happen to delete the misspelled word (I added a test word "asdfg"), the Spelling Options again jumps to this non-existent word in the text frame where it was originally found (but not after closing and reopening the document). I would think AFPUB should not do any of that and just simply inform the user that there are no misspelled words to be found. If there are no misspelled words, the Spelling Options dialogue just sits there quietly doing nothing. Not very informative.
  5. Affinity Designer Version 1.7.1.1 iPad Pro 12,9 inch first generation, iOS 12.3.1 I added screen recordings for clarity. Problem 1: Margin and bleed not working for artboards Margins and bleed work perfect for documents that do not use artboards, but when I convert it to an artboard using "Insert Artboard" it stops working. Same goes for creating a document and enabling the option "Create Artboard". Bleed still shows, but changing the values for Left, Right, Top or Bottom doesn't change the bleed. When opening the menu again the values are back to what they were before using "Insert Artboard". Margins also don't work, it goes back to Left 0.0 Right 0.0 Top 0.0 and Bottom 0.0. Trying to change this makes it immediately jump back to 0.0. margin_bleed_artboard.MP4 Problem 2: "Check Spelling While Typing" option is always on when loading any document check_spelling_while_typing.MP4 Problem 3: Limited selection of presets for inserting artboards in an open document It looks like the artboard presets of the category "Device". However, the bottom four options are also missing: Kindle Fire HD 7, Kindle Fire HD 8.9, Galaxy S5 and Surface Pro 2. There is an option missing for selecting the category like when creating a new document. It seems that this simply has been overlooked. insert_artboard.MP4
  6. I am unable to get the spellchecker working in any of the Affinity apps. Discovered it after installing Publisher and it is as if no spellchecker is installed, whether in Publisher or Designer. Spellchecker OK in other programs. Any ideas??? Windows 10, 64bit
  7. Whilst trying to resolve a spell check issue I looked in the Publisher help file and saw an option that I can't access. Check Spelling In—sets the scope of the spell check. Select from the pop-up menu. I don't have this option when I go to Text > spelling. I only have Show spelling options, Check spelling, Check spelling while typing and Ignore miss spelt words which is greyed out for some reason.
  8. Hi Serif'er It will be important to have spell-check in Swiss German, we even have a different typo to the Germans. It would be nice, to able to use "Duden" or "Hunspell" or "Pons" or "Open Thesaurus" or any other kind of spell-checking method. Cheers for the constant improvement! Thomas
  9. Hello I need to check spelling for a document and I have the program set in english but when it checks the spelling it is using "spanish". Where do I change the spelling language, not the program language. Thanks.
  10. Hi, just purchased and installed Affinity Designer 1.6 and started using it. I've immediately noticed a bug/crash that is reproducible every time. No matter which object is selected, going to "Text - Spelling - Spelling Options..." immediately crashes the app. Attached please find a short video showing the bug in action, as well as the crash report from Console.app. cheers, felix Affinity Designer_2017-11-08-123702_FX-MacBook-Pro-13.crash AffinitySpellingOptionsCrash.mp4
  11. Dear Support, I would like to suggest Greek language spelling and hyphenation tools for Affinity Publisher sooner or later! I consider them to be very important for my work. Thank you very much !
  12. It would be nice (if it doesn't already exist and I've just missed it) to be able to toggle on & off the spell check feature. The squiggly red line can be really distracting when I'm trying to look at the design, especially when the word is purposely missing letters.
  13. G'day again from Australian. I am having an awesome time with Affinity Designer, but I am very much a newbie. I assume that I am doing something wrong, as I am unable to get the Check Spelling While Typing option to work :( The option is clicked in the Text/Spelling spot, but when I type in text nothing gets corrected. I this a senior's problem for me :), or is this a problem with Affinity 1,5,1,43 for Windows? I have Windows 10. Many thanks for your help and I look forward to hearing from you soon. Paul.
  14. Under Spelling Options I find no way to delete a learned word from spelling options (entered incorrectly). Am I missing something?
  15. Under your Help ... Spelling there is no mention of sharing the words that my spelling option has "learned." On my Mac I find a "Spelling" folder in my "Library" that has the file "dynamic-counts.dat" in it (see below). How can share my "learned" spellings with with my colleague? Also, what is this "dynamic-counts.dat" doc? It has today's date. In this same Spelling folder there is a "dynamic-text.dat" doc, and and "Local Dictionary" doc but they both have earlier dates.
  16. Is there really a spell checker in AD? I have tested with misspelled words and the app doesn't seem to recognize them.

    Spelling mistakes

    Hi AndyS, I've found some more typos, yup! Tis the same word again - the word colour, this time in these help files: Help> Affinity Designer Help>Introduction>Key features>Solid graphic design tools...4 times. Help> Affinity Designer Help>Gettings started>Create new documents...4times. There's probably more of the same around here, so, rather than type out all of the same mistakes, I think it would be better to do a complete document spell check, on all the help files. Perhaps setting the setting to UK/British English on this. :ph34r: Peter Ps it's Halloween soon - spell better :P
  18. In Preferences>User Interface> Background Gray Level. Shouldn't we be using British English and spell it G R E Y instead. Sorry if I sound pedantic (or like Stephen Fry) but Nottingham is still in England, isn't it. Or is International English taking over? Hope not.
