2 bugs in Publisher


Recommended Posts

Hi,

here are two bugs I found in Publisher:

  1. When I select a shape or picture frame and try to change the stroke width, it is changed also in the character panel.
  2. When I select a text frame and try to change the fill or outline color of the frame,test.thumb.png.8e2c6edfa7ecb75b470871e073f451e2.png it changes the fill and outline color of the text.

Of course, I can open the "Text Frame" panel to do this, but it is one more panel opened unnecessarily and only text frame reacts like this. You can change the fill and outline colors of all the other objects -- shapes, picture frames, lines, text -- via "Swatches" panel buy not of the text frame like in InDesign or Quark.

For #2, where are you making the change? If you're using the Context Toolbar, those fields are for the Text, not for the Frame.

On "Swatches". But it doesn't matter, wherever you make a change it must work corectly -- fill color for background, outline color for the frame.

Hi @Petar Petrenko,

And what do you think it's the problem here? Does it affect anything else?

This is not a bug. It's by design.
