  1. Publisher continues to crash when I attempt to delete a TOC style. Luckily Publisher has a recovery file. I have been working all day, multitasking actually, so resources are slim at best, but I thought I'd mention this before I leave for the weekend, maybe see if someone else has experienced this as well. My hope is that once I shut down and come back Monday things will be back to normal (crossing fingers). I have a crash report if that is of any use to anyone.
  2. For my company I got myself the entire suit of your products and am already working on a coursebook I am writing using Publisher. So far most of it has been easy to do and/or find, however now I stumbled into something I cant seem to solve so easy and I hope someone can be of help. I have a table of contents that has grown beyond one page. How can I make it flow over to the next page? It should of course keep updating all pages when required. The table of contents frame doesnt have the little arrow on the right that normal frames have to link it. Thank you in advance for any help. Regards, Huub

    TOC mishap

    APUB, OS X 10.13.6 I have a 2-page spread of some 140 pages so far. The setup for pages is a master page is assigned with page numbers and section names. Then a picture frame with a photo of lowered opacity is applied either to a single page or spanning two pages. This frame is arranged "to back" so that the master page numbers and sections will appear, and then other smaller picture frames with 100% opacity photos, including text frames are placed on top of all of that. I inserted a TOC on page 3. Then the weirdness happened. The pages after the TOC page were affected: the recto pages all had a full-sized picture frame with a picture that had been moved to the "back" so that the master page numbers and sections would show. Note that each separate verso/recto page had its own "at back" picture frame with photo and only the recto pages had this problem. On about 50 of those pages all of the full-sized picture frames had been moved one step to the front - thereby hiding the master's page numbers, etc. Then, in another section of pages following those, the full-sized "at back" picture frames were single frames that spanned two pages (verso and recto). The smaller photos on the verso pages were moved back one level (I think "to back") and had the same (incorrect) opacity as the background picture frame. This caused the separate photos on that page to be grayed-out behind the full-page picture frame. Each of these problems had to be corrected manually - selecting the page picture frame and moving "to back" or moving the verso page picture frame out of the way and moving the smaller photos "to front" then moving the full-page frame back into place. In yet another section that follows, the verso small picture frame photos and text had all been moved "to back" and were hidden rather than grayed-out. Finally, the last section of some 8 pages was fine - no changes or problems.
  4. I'm trying to create a Table of Contents for my document (see attached document). Steps to recreate: Generate some text. Go to the first page, and create a space to insert the TOC. I used a page break to push the first H1-Heading 1 paragraph to Page 2. From the Text menu, select Table of Contents > Insert Table of Contents Select Text Flow from the Look in: option. Clear the checkmark in front of H2-Heading2 Select Chapter Title Select H1-Heading1 Application crashes. Attached: Crash log file and sample document that I was working on.

  5. When I add a table of contents to any document, I can't export or print. Clicking on either Export... or Print... immediately freezes Publisher and I can do nothing at all. I have to kill this instance of Publisher using Task Manager and then re-launch it to do anything further. I can consistently recreate this any time I have a master page containing text frames. If there is no TOC, I can export and print as expected. As soon as I add a TOC those functions cease to operate. Steps to recreate: Create a new file using the default settings. Add a text frame to the master spread. On any page, insert a TOC by double-clicking in the text frame and selecting Text > Table of Contents > Insert Table of Contents Click File > Export... or File > Print... Publisher freezes completely This is not happening if I leave the master alone and just create a text frame on a page and put the TOC in that. I am on Windows 10 using beta I haven't used any previous beta versions so I don't know if this used to work or not.
  6. I would like to be able to update page numbers on my TOC without deleting line breaks and interruptions inserted manually. It would be quite useful when working on a TOC split in multiple text frames for composition purposes. It could be an additional "soft" TOC update that just reloads page numbers and section names without updating the whole TOC.
  7. The sorting of the Table of Contents is a bit strange or I don't know how to use it? I create: Headline 1 Headline 2 Headline 3 and insert Headline 4 between 1 and 2 to get this: Headline 1 Headline 4 Headline 2 Headline 3 The Table of Contents will be: Headline 1 Headline 2 Headline 3 Headline 4
  8. When I open AD Help, the table of Contents sidebar is strangely formatted, with the following problems: • Some exposure triangles do not match up with the help subtopics. • Some subtopics are always expanded as if I had clicked on their parent topic & I cannot collapse them. • The Table of Contents sidebar does not disappear when I click on many (but not all) topics, obscuring the left part of the topic unless I drag the window's width to a very large size. • In a few topic pages images are blank, showing only the OS X question mark in a blue box 'placeholder' icon one normally sees when an image can't be loaded on a web page. On at least one of those pages (for the Interface visual reference) moving the pointer over where a UI element should be shown works, but only for some UI elements. • For some topics, depending on if I try to select them from the Table of Contents sidebar after selecting some other topic, the correct text will be displayed, but with the image(s) from the previous topic. This is hard to explain, so please refer to the two screen shots & feel free to ask for clarification on anything still unclear. I have tried the following to resolve this with no effect: 1. Reset (clear) everything on starting up AD (the control key launch) 2. Manually trashing ~/Library/Containers/com.seriflabs.affinitydesigner/Data/Library/Preferences/com.seriflabs.affinitydesigner.plist & even /Applications/Affinity Designer.app/Contents/Resources/AffinityDesigner.help/Contents 3. Running the OS X El Capitan Disk First Aid on the startup disk, & Onyx's Repair Disk Permissions (which the El Cap version of Disk Utility lacks). 4. Rebuilding the Help system with Onyx 5. Trashing /Applications/Affinity Designer.app & downloading a new copy from the Mac App Store. 6. Multiple restarts of my iMac, between each of the previous steps & various combinations thereof. 7. Verbal curses, threats, & other irrational outbursts aimed at the hardware, Apple, Affinity, & other entities that I know can't hear me but make me feel (slightly) better about not being able to fix this on my own. No other Help window behaves this way, including the one for Affinity Photo, so it seems to be something affecting only AD, but I have no clue what it might be. Any suggestions for what to try next?
