  1. Missing the obvious here, but how do I rearrange rows within a table (change the order of them)? Or to be more specific, I have an existing table that I need to add another row into, in-between rows 2 and 3 - clicking to add another row just adds it to the bottom of the table - how do I insert a row where I need it please? Many thanks!
  2. I'm putting together a table showing some statistical analysis and the as I'm entering the text, the fonts are acting really weird. (I checked several different fonts and it doesn't really matter what font I use, it looks this way on all of them. AF Publisher Mac OS X: 10.13.6 Table with 10 columns and 9 rows Font: Courier New Font size: 7pt
  3. Windows 10 Home 1809, Publisher When I drag the double-arrow tag at the bottom-left or top-right of a table (I don't know the proper name and can't find it in the Help) it doesn't always produce a new column or row. See the attached GIF where dragging from the tab the first time usually creates a new row/column but after that it only starts to create rows/columns once I've dragged to two row/column heights/widths. Not a major issue, just thought I'd mention it.
  4. I would like to have these improvements and additional features: Tables: 1. Create tables from selected texts with tab stops. 2. Convert tables to continuous text. 3. Can share single cells at any time. (Helpful for complex tables and subsequent cell division changes) 4. Can change cell size by moving the dividing lines. Import (placing) of further text files: Word .docx, .doc Excel .xlsx, .xls The copying and pasting of the texts is only possible if you have a program with which you can open these files.

  5. Hi, Just started looking into Affinity Publisher for designing a character sheet for my hobby RPG. I would like to be able to set some kind of master table style and then map tables to it, similarly to how you can do with master pages. So that I can update the style and have all tables be updated automatically. Is there a way to do that? Just as an example, here's another character sheet: https://www.shadowruntabletop.com/wp-content/uploads/Downloads/CAT27000_Shadowrun%205_CharacterSheet.pdf
  6. Affinity Publisher on a German Windows 7 (64bit) behaves as shown in the attached video: When changing a table's width so that its height also changes, artefacts may stay on screen (video 0:00-0:35). When trying to auto-fit a column of a table that already contains cells with more than one line, the auto-fit fails completely, breaking words after each character (video 0:37-0:50). Trying to adjust the width of the ruined column doesn't work anymore: The width refuses to get larger than a certain amount, which is too small for the contained text, even though the neighbouring column is large enough (video 0:50-1:01). The too small column can be made even smaller with the mouse, but not wide enough, and a second auto-fit produces the same bad result as previously (video 1:01-end).

  7. Is there any way to import tabular data (like a csv or a table in a textfile) into a table in Affinity Publisher? I can't seem to link or place a file in any format. If I try to copy the data, it always lands in one table-cell. Love the Affinity-products, by the way. Great work!
  8. Hi, I successfuly "Pasted special..." Excel table into Publisher. The table retained its text formating, color and other attributes. Text is also fully editable. BUT... it would br really great if "Paste Special" can convert it into Publisher table where we can continue to work on it.
  9. Really enjoying trying out AF Publish. But I have a specific problem with tables: I'm trying to make a 4-column X 8-row table in AF Publish (Mac). As I populate text into it, the last row keeps extending down on its own. Tried remaking the table a few times but the odd behaviour persists. For example, the row height on my table is about 30mm. But the last row extends by itself sometimes to 2500 mm. It's always the last row and it expands unpredictably. I tried reducing the cell-height in the Table tool> Cell> Height, but things got worse—the cell height kept expanding, whether I was decreasing or increasing the value. I also tried with the Transform tool> Height. That reduced the height but not to the value I put in (30mm); and, the value in the transform tool inexplicably went to 253 (or some such high figure which kept varying). Is this a bug or am I overlooking something? Pl. help.
  10. Is there way to flow the table over more pages? like when i add one more row on page one and the last row, that would otherwise be out of the page, flows to page 2 ?
  11. I wanted to create a table where the fringes of each row faded or changed to a different color.
  12. I create a Table and modify the stroke. Then align the table to a guide and it snaps at the middle of the stroke. To be correctly aligned, shouldn_t it snap to the outer border??? I searched n snapping manager for an option to change this behaviour, but didn't find.
  13. It would be good to have a built in Charts and Graphs tool that would convert Table entry into such forms. Apple Pages has such feature for example.
  14. I created a simple table in my document. I place the curser in the last row and move the curser using the right arrow key to advance through the last row of the table. When I get to the end of the table, pressing the right arrow key one more time crashes Affinity Publisher. I am also noticing that the last row is taller than the other rows and AP won't let me resize this row. I've attached the file... Untitled.afpub
  15. Hello Affinity people, First let me say thanks for giving us the opportunity to beta test publisher and to hopefully help to make it the application we all want it to be. It's looking really good so far. However, there are lots of things missing for me and my workflow (e.g. scripting and grep styles) but I hope that you will continue to add these kinds of features as the application matures. I am having an issue with the new publisher beta ( where the frame around a table is always drawing behind the fill and strokes of the cells. I have attached a screen shot so that you can see the issue. The way I would imagine this working would be that the frame should always draw in front of the cells fill and stroke, unless you have the 'Draw behind fill' checkbox checked. By the way, this check box does nothing at the moment! Also if I choose 'Text | Find' from the menus the application will immediately crash - this happens every time. Thanks again Spacemanspiff
  16. There seems to be a bug when trying to adjust cell height, using both the up and down arrows results in a huge size increases also typing in a number say 5mm results in 9mm, the only way I've found of reducing the cel size is type in 0. Copy paste from Numbers works great although all cell widths default to a set size but I can't get Excel to paste into tables it just pastes in as loads of little text boxes Also will there be any plans to have a lock cell sizes function, enabling you to paste into a setup table without messing up the cell layout?
  17. I created a paragraph style to be the header row for a table called "Table Header Brown". Then duplicated the default table style and began to edit it. Several observations: 1. If you choose the vertically center button, it is not sticky between calling up instances of the table designer 2. If you add a column to the default layout (shown on the left), there is a + button to add columns or rows, but no - button to delete the col or row 3. When I create a cell type for the header row and apply it to the default layout, the header repeats again after the number of "default" style rows when applied to a table. The default cell format is still based on the Table Body format, and my header rows are based on my customer header cell as shown in the attached figure. I did figure out that if you drag the down arrow on the left side to the next row, it will only apply the cell formatting to the top row. Sorry if this is intended behavior, I'm just trying to figure this out. thanks David Sampson
  18. A few operations that would be handy when working with tables, perhaps for some future version: - Create a table from a selection of objects. (e.g., You have a nicely aligned grid of text frames, and you would like to convert them into a true table.) - An option in the column & row headers to duplicate that column or row, preserving formatting. (I do see that you can copy/paste an entire row or column into another one.) - Optionally paste tab-delimited content into a table and have each item populate a separate cell. - Dynamically link a table to an external spreadsheet or CSV file as the content source.
  19. While playing the options of paragraph flow (on edit style pane) I've noted that the Keep with next option displaces and moves text in table cells using the style, moving final lines of paragraph to the next cell and reflowing the next ones. See attached images (one with 0 and other with 1 on the field)
  20. Hello, just tried the beta and I noticed that a feature is missing: automatica caption numbering. Ok, it's very easy to create a paragraph syle and apply a"Bullets and numbering" style, but when we deal with large documents (books, for example) the numbering should be autoarranged from top to bottom. Please, see the image attached for a visual explanation. What do you think about?
  21. Please add the main functions from Excel! For example: Sum, Min, Max, Count, Average.
  22. Can the people working on the Affinity range PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE at least take a look at Mircosoft Word 2016, Microsoft Publisher 2016 and explain why I have to create a table in Publisher (since Office 2000) and then save it as an image and then paste into Serif PagePlus (or an Affinity App) because 17 years later this feature has been totally IGNORED by the SERIF Development Team ????? How difficult it can it be to spilt a cell diagonally AFTER desiging apps that run circles around other all these years ? PLEASE SERIF - actually listen to what customers are asking you for.
  23. Would be really nice to be able to copy/past Apple Numbers spreadsheet tables into Affinity Designer. Right now it is pretty rubbish, and If I want to get a table pasted into Affinity Designer I need to Copy from Apple Numbers, Paste into Adobe Photoshop, export as PSD, import PSD into Affinity designer. I say Apple Numbers because the table design tools are the best there is, fast easy and very good quality. This would negate Affinity Designer having to get too involved in creating its own table designer, In Design tables are trash also, but I can copy/paste from Apple Numbers. Thanks,
  24. When pasting a table from the clipboard that was copied from Word 2011, Affinity designer crashes (without warning; "Affinity Designer quit unexpectedly"). Luckily, the auto-backup saved most of my work. I was expecting that Affinity Designer would produce the table as unformatted text. Apart from that I'm very satisfied by Affinity Designer. I have used it extensively in the past few weeks and I am amazed by the by the blazing speed of the rendering engine when working on (very) complex drawings. Although I can think of many improvements, this app is really really useful. I finally left CorelDRAW for my artwork. Love it, can't wait to see the next beta!
