  1. Not a bug I guess, named too much bugs lately which weren't ones, but an observation. My document has seven pages, I am on page 7 used Zoom To Fit to see the whole page or any other magnification. Next I use the scrollbar to move to page 1. When I now use shortcut CTRL+0 I am moved back to page 7 zoomed to fit. That was nothing I expected.
  2. Sorry, I don't if the title of this topic is the correct wording, but have a look at the image to see what I want. Step 1) Write some text with e.g. a bullet followed by a tab stopp Step 2) Define the left indent with 3 mm Result for Step 2) First Line Indent becomes also 3 mm Step 3) Correct First Line Indent into -3 mm Result for Step 3) Value for First Line Indent turns into 0 mm, but the visual result is correct Questions: Am I too stupid for a hanging indent? Wouldn't it be better if order is: First Line and then First Line Indent? Maybe I expect Publisher too often behave like Indesign. I guess there is a smarter way for a hanging indent in Publisher.
  3. See attached image. I already resetted Publisher
  4. See image. I did not check if this applies also for width of combined cells. EDIT: Same applies for the width of combined cells. Additionally one wish: If you manually resize cells holding shift the size of the others cells e.g. all cells to the right keep their size. But if you resize a cell via the panel the next cell to the right gets smaller. Maybe you could a box to keep the sizes of neighbour cells?
  5. Not a drama at all. 1) Select Place from File menu 2) Move mouse over or click into file type dropdown
  6. Maybe covered elsewhere? Vertically shrinking the textframe to text height is working. But horizontally shrinking leads to unexpected results. See attached image. Also there are differences depending on the font. Two upper examples are Arial (OTF) and the lower example is Milo OT (OTF).
  7. Step 1: Create a layer with some elements on a Master Page Step 2: Rename the layer from Layer1 to LayerWhatever Step 3: Go to pages and have a look at the layers panel. Name of the layer there and in exported PDF is called Layer1
  8. First of all, sorry for the clickbait title, but this is so weird ... Step 1: I created a flyer with some graphic elements, a little bit of text and one image. So far so good. Step 2: I generated a PDF and printed this file with Acrobat. All fine. Step 3: I printed the file from Foxit Reader 9.2. Surprise: The image vanished. Step 4: Getting curious. In Foxits printing dialogue advanced section I disabled the PCL driver for the printer. Surprise: The image was printed. Step 5: Examining the PDF showed no errors, a valid document. Step 6: Found the culprit - me being lazy. When I created the flyer I was lazy and copied the image from an Indesign document (417 % scaling, because while inserting into Publisher, the image shrinks in its dimensions) and pasted it into Publisher. The copied image was a layer of its own with the correct file name, but the image did not appear in the resource manager. Step 7: Doing it the long (correct) way: Placed the image, generated the PDF, printed from Foxit with PCL driver enabled. Perfect. Conclusion: Something is ... wrong ... the way elements are inserted into Publisher via copy and paste. Hopefully this is getting fixed.
  9. In this case I made a 3-column text frame and inserted some text creating an overflow. This overflow I linked to another 3-column text frame on a following page. The text in this new frame completely changed its formatting from 10/13pt to 1,7/2,2pt. See attached image. Although I applied a text style for the complete text the text style in the second frame is marked with a +.
  10. Easy table workflow from an infamous layout programme: Define a table with 5 (or less or more) columns, set various column width as you like. Now if you e.g. increase the width of column, all other columns keep their defined width, the table in fact gets wider. Difficult table workflow from a newcomer: Define a table with 5 (or less or more) columns, set various column width as you like. Now if you e.g. increase the width of column 2, column 3 gets smaller, columns 4 and 5 stay the same size. So I have to resize columns 3, 4 and 5. But there are so many features in Publisher, perhaps I have not found the correct way to prevent above behaviour?
  11. You need at least THREE objects to space them horizontally or vertically. Only two objects are not working - any good reason for this? Anyway, spacing horizontally / vertically is lacking the ability to define the distance of spacing.
  12. Selecting the beginning of a paragraph in in 3(2) columns text frame can be quite difficult. From last character to first character = no problem. But selecting first character to last character = problem, because the pointer changes from text-cursor to changing-column-width-cursor. And again ... the behaviour of Publisher is not consistent over different zoom levels. At 150% zoom no chance to select from the start. At 200% zoom you can select from the second character onwards. At 250% zoom you can finally select from the first character onwards. I am not the type always zooming around to get the right tools. In this specific case for me the text frame panel would be enough for changing the width of the columns. Hmm, brilliant software so far, but there are some points not to switch from Indesign. But this is Beta, so Publisher is evolving sooner or later.
  13. Pretty self-explanatory the title? If a text frame with overflowing text has a height of 7 mm the triangle for overflow will be visible at a zoom of about 211%. At a zoom of 100% the triangle vanishes at a height of 14,6 mm. I do not want to compare too much with Indesign, but there the overflow icon is visible even at 5% zoom. It would save some (small) time if Publisher would behave like Indesign in this case.
  14. I know this is nitpicking having the zoom at 2054% and lamenting about two images not being aligned top. The transform tool says they are on the same height. It is just irritating.
  15. I am printing out a photo,Putting in the proper pixel sizes on the Photo dialogue box but the photo is missing about 6mms.on left hand side and bottom.The only way that I can avoid this and print out all the photo is to increase the numbers I put into the pixel boxes.Can anyone tell me why this is?Printer is an HP Envy 5020.
  16. Hello! Unfortunately I'm experiencing a crash with Affinity Photo v I'm running Windows 8.1. Since moving from the trial version, when I select the Selection Brush Tool I see the cursor change, followed by a flash of graphics distortion and finally a blank screen. I think I'm experiencing a graphics related crash. I don't think I have a dedicated graphics card. I've tried on a black 200 x 200px canvas and experience the same crash. I didn't get this crash in the trial version. If there's any further information that would help, let me know! Thanks for your help, Owen
