Find-Replace Paragraph Menu Doesn't Scroll (Publisher 2.3.0-2114)


Recommended Posts

I came across a document with a large number of Paragraph Styles. When trying to find and replace them I realised that the Find Paragraph Menu doesn't scroll and is limited to the height of the screen. I didn't try this on Character Styles but I'm sure it's the same.

Im attaching a sample document for someone else to try whether it's my setup that causes it or it's a limitation that should be addressed.

Can't check for you as on my setup I have ample room for the 50+ styles when using the Find and Replace. 

Mac Pro (Late 2013) Mac OS 12.7.2 
Affinity Designer 2.3.1 | Affinity Photo 2.3.1 | Affinity Publisher 2.3.1 | Beta versions as they appear.

I have never mastered color management, period, so I cannot help with that.

This might be related to:

  • Your System Settings (Appearance), where you can control when scroll bars appear, and/or
  • What kind of device you're using for scrolling.

But it works for me with either my Mac trackpad or a mouse with a scroll-wheel.

This isn't specific to the 2.3 beta, the same behaviour is in 2.2.1.

That's weird, it's not working for me. I tried all three macOS scrolling behaviours with my mouse and trackpad. And it's not just Find and Replace, it's also the popups in the Context Toolbar and Paragraph panel.

Somebody else reported this today, too.

Same here, it's definitely non-scrollable with trackpad, magic mouse and pen...

The list itself breaks out of the UI, sits below the Dock (assuming you have your Dock located at the bottom of the screen) and continues below screen height which is evidenced by using the down arrow to select styles, i.e., you can use the down arrow to select a style that falls well below the height of the screen...

It affects the Paragraph Panel, Context Menu and Find and Replace Panel but works correctly in the Create and Edit Text-Style, Insert Cross Reference and Notes Panels where the list is scrollable...
