bug in paragraph styles and character styles


LindaYVR

Recommended Posts

I just updated to Affinity Publisher 2.2.1 and my styles are all messed up now. I'd like to revert back to 2.2.

Here's the problem. All my text eg, titles, lists, paragraphs display as text using character style hyperlink blue. I use a lot of styles and I don't want to have to correct every single one. Please fix. Thanks.

Does this happen in all existing documents, or new documents, or one specific document?

I don't know that this is related to the 2.2.1 upgrade, there weren't any changes that would have caused that and nobody else has reported a problem like this.

You might have accidentally updated something like the Base style on which all of the other styles are based. Try editing Base and seeing what its settings are.

If that's not the issue, could you upload a document for testing? Here are instructions if you don't want to share the actual document:

  1. Create a new document.
  2. Choose Detach and Delete All Styles from the panel menu to delete all text styles from the document.
  3. Choose Import Styles… from the panel menu and then from the Open window select the document with the incorrect styles.
  4. Click OK in the Imported Text Styles window. The blank document now contains just the text styles from the original document.
  5. Save the document and upload it here.
