Affinity Publisher Request

Recommended Posts

Hi,

sorry if I posted this in wrong place.

 

I thought it would be great to add many character styles for the same part of text (within paragraph). I mean something like CSS classes.

 

Sometimes I need to add i.e. Bold, Color and Small Caps character styles to part of text. With multiple character styles I can have three instead of Bold, Color, Small Caps, Bold Small Caps, Color Small Caps, Bold Color, Bold Color Small Caps.

 

Thanks,

Greg

I'm afraid that's unlikely to happen. We did consider it, but without visible codes it seemed like it would be too hard to make the user interface clear. We don't use embedded codes internally, so there'd be a fundamental ambiguity between, say, <red><blue>text</blue></red> and <blue><red>text</red></blue> which we couldn't resolve without actually having the <red> and <blue> codes in some order
 
Text styles are now included in the current macOS beta, and probably won't be changing much for Publisher.

I mean rather use paragraph style for whole paragraphs and character styles for separate words or sentences in paragraph. This way you can just highlight more than one character style on list.
