I have two open documents in Separated Mode. I am copying objects (text, mostly) between them, from document 1 to document 2. I'm encountering a very annoying, and really insurmountable problem.

As I move the text cursor into a text frame on document 2 - in order to edit the text - the first character I type, the window switches immediately to document 1. I click document 2 and again place my cursor (which has been removed from the text frame) and type one character again. It switches to document 1 again. Character by character this repeats.

With this problem, it is impossible to edit the second document. It does not happen in reverse if I edit document 1. There are other tools which, when used, will also cause this switching back to the "source" document. An example of this is the Paragraph Leading - it also causes a switch back to document 1 from document 2.

Note: when I go back to normal (not separated) mode, this window switching does not occur.

Hi both. Is it indeed that issue. We have now resolved the problem and will make the fix available in the next release of Affinity Publisher on your platform.

The fixes and how to update are described in these forum posts.

We would appreciate you checking that this issue has now been resolved for you.
