  1. Windows 10 Home 1809, Publisher As you can see in the attached GIF, the horizontal insets of a table frame do not match the vertical insets. I would have expected the gaps between the table frame and the outer cells to be the same when the inset values are the same, as they are with a text frame, but they're different. This issue was reported a while back... https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/67098-problem-with-table-frame-inset ...but it is still in evidence. Is this an actual problem or am I simply using it all wrong?
  2. Windows 10 Home 1809, Publisher I'm not sure if this is a feature or a bug so I'll ask the question. When I have a cell or a number of cells in a table selected, I can change the border - of whichever border-selection is currently selected in the Table panel - of those cells via the Decorations tab of the Character panel. Is this something that was deliberate? It's a kind-of-nice short-cut if I don't have the Tables panel open - even though I can't choose which border selection I want from the Character panel - but I don't know if having it at the Character level is appropriate. I'm not sure where would be a better place, it just seems a bit odd.
  3. Windows 10 Home 1809, Publisher The attached GIF shows what's happening better than I can explain it. Basically, selecting some cells from the bottom table actually selects some cells in the upper table, sometimes. Same document that I attached to this post: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/80965-spacing-between-table-cells-in-affinity-publisher/&tab=comments#comment-426146
  4. I am working on implementing a table in AfPub, which is when I noticed that changing the width of columns (and rows) by dragging them is awfully slow and hardly responsive. Basically I can not make any proper adjustments this way. I can enter a value in the table menu to set the width, and this works OK, but this is not always the easiest way. I also noticed is that the up/down arrows in the table menu to increase/decrease a value does not work, neither does dragging left to right. I hope you can work on these issues as tables are quite important to me, and they don't quite work as they should. I am using an iMac 2011, i5 with 12GB ram, on el Capitan (not Metal compatible)
  5. When I add a table to my document it never shows the column headers (A, B, C, D, . . . ) or the row numbers (1, 2, 3, 4, . . . ). I can't seem to find a setting to show or hide them. I am running Publisher v I am running Mac OS Mojave.
  6. AF Publisher V Mac OS X: 10.13.6 When working with the text in a Table, the Text Ruler does not show. I'm unable to alter the start position, tabs, or end position of the text. If I click outside of the table, the text ruler appears at the top of the text column.
  7. Windows 10 Home 1809, Publisher Apologies for the non-specific title of the post but I couldn't think of anything more precise that covers everything. Have a look at the attached GIF and you will see: * The row headers are not aligned with the rows; * The later row headers are 'greyed out' when the row is not selected; * The later row headers don't have the 'context arrow' for the drop-down menu; * The column headers are not aligned with the columns; * The column header dividers, when dragged, do some very strange things. (Apologies for some of the mistaken mouse movements, it's sometimes very difficult to get the cursor exactly where you want to get the correct pointer. Also, ignore the shear, I didn't mean to do that - difficulty getting the correct pointer.) I've attached the document for testing. weird-table-stuff.afpub
  8. In a table the stroke of multiple selected table cells often doesn't change and update accordingly. When I select all cells of a table in order to set their stroke to none and stroke size to 0, only few cells (randomly) are affected and updated. Many cells still do show a stroke there, even when afterwards the settings of some individual selected/active cells do show "none stroke" and "size 0" there is still a visable none removed stroke. One always has to reclick and retouch the stroke size slider of such cells in order to get them updated and to show up no stroke at all.
  9. Windows 10 Home 1809, Publisher Note: This issue also applies to Columns. When I select multiple rows on a table and choose "Delete Row(s)" from the little drop-down arrow menu - on any row - only one row is deleted. However, if I right-click with multiple rows selected and choose "Delete Row(s)" from the contextual menu then the correct number of rows is deleted. I think both methods should do the same thing, which is to delete all of the selected rows, otherwise the "(s)" suffix is confusing. P.S. It would also be nice to be able to insert multiple rows/columns but that's maybe something for separate request.
  10. Maybe covered elsewhere. When text cursor is placed in a cell and you execute keyboard shortcut Strg+A selects the whole table. Quadruple clicking selects the whole text of the table in all cells. So is it intended behaviour, that I have to manually mark the text in a cell to copy it? Strange side effect of merged cells: If there are merged cells in a table and you execute keyboard shortcut Strg+A NOT the whole table is selected, but only a part of it. P.S.: Please add a function for adding columns/rows before or after. ATM only before? select-cells.afpub
  11. I am glad to see importing excel contents in a table now works, which was a big issue for me. I still need to get used to the way tables work in Publisher, but I will get the hang of it. I do run into some redraw issues when dragging the cells of the table sometimes, making it smaller. So some things appear twice on the screen, when only one is there (I don't know if ghosting is the right term?) These mostly disappear when I scroll or zoom, but are a bit annoying. Hope you can squash this bug? table_issue.mov
  12. I was trying to drop in some data from Excel in Publisher ( on Mac OSX High Sierra) and no matter how many cells I select it only pastes the data into the first cell. I thought maybe this was maybe how its supposed to work but looking at this post I see that @carl123 is using Windows it works this way but not on Mac for some reason. Raising it here just in case its a bug.
  13. Hi This is my favorite way to work hard and fast for the sea time /tide schedule. and i do not find equal in publisher, please try to make indesign equal : Table to Text / Text to Table
  14. I want the cells in the table to be divided vertically or diagonally without changing their field. Each cell should be divided into 2 or 3 vs vertically or horizontally. This is of great importance for busy table work.
  15. How can i edit a table's text without having it attaching to baseline grid? now when i modify my table size and dimensions, it looks very wacky.
  16. I paste text into a table cell, highlight the table row, right click and choose "Autofit Row to Contents". The bottom of the cell boarder covers the text (see attached). I have tried working with Character and Paragraph settings to fix this, but I have only fixed the top (setting Space Before to 6 pt, and Use Space Before: Always).
  17. Hi there. So, I got an error copying text with bullets from one cell to another cell (cells from different tables) -> happened twiced I've removed the bullets manually and nothing happened. So i think there's something related to the bullets. EDIT: i've tried again with other cell and nothing happened. maybe was something about the text format, not sure.
  18. Spelling Lines on Table do not refresh after changing table format.
  19. I have a table, and I cannot control the height of the last row. It grows each time I edit it. The boundry on the table even exceeds the table fill.
  20. I have an issue when trying to edit the last row of my table. When you try to adjust the height of the row, either up or down in size, the table cell continues to grow. Even after you delete the last row the table grows in size. Table_Bug.afpub
  21. Hey guys, Wondering if anyone else is having this issue. When I go to increase insets for a table frame it does what it's supposed to do. But when I go to decrease the insets, it does the complete opposite. See clip below about what I mean. https://gfycat.com/gifs/detail/FixedOccasionalAmethystgemclam Thanks
  22. I'm in the process of creating an offer folder - and stuck a bit on the tables. It would be useful for Affinity to have tables (eg Excel). In addition, it would be useful to perform simple operations in tables, such as adding, subtracting, percentages, etc. (as in Excel). Many users would be happy to help them work on projects such as folders, pricelists, etc. When will this feature be available?
  23. Tables in an uncontrolled manner change the height when writing text. File in attachment. table.afpub
  24. I inserted a table on a blank page, and decided I wanted another type of table (not the full page table that is generated), but upon trying to delete it, I could not. Is this a type of bug, I don't know or perhaps I'm missing something here. Paul L.
  25. The ability to Automatically convert tabbed text to tables would be a real time-saver. (This would also go a long way, before Publisher has a robust word processing file importer. Right now, copying an pasting a table from Word to Publisher results in tabbed text) .
