I'm using a Mac OS 10.9.5 but couldn't import text because in the Text Column the choice Import Text from File doesn't exist. I had to do a Copy/Paste to bring in text from another document. What am I doing wrong? Thanks. Frank B

I posted elsewhere but here it is again. I'm using Affinity Beta 1.7.0.227 on a Mac running OS 10.9.5. I tried to import text but when I used the recommended "Help" suggestion I found that the command "Import Text from File" does not exist in the Text drop down menu. Looked elsewhere on other menus and found nothing. Same when I looked under Help. Suggestions?

Thanks, Frank B

If you're talking about Publisher, you're in the wrong forum.  You'd want one of the ones here.

But in that case Publisher .227 changed the way this is handled. With the cursor in the Text Frame, use File > Place to select the file to insert.

If “Text ▻ Import Text from File” is really missing this could be a quick solution:

You can reset your app back to its default settings by holding down the CTRL key while launching the app. When the Clear User Data window appears, click Select All and then Clear. The app will now open. Be aware that resetting your app back to its default settings will lose any custom settings such as keyboard shortcuts and brushes etc. To backup such settings before resetting the app, watch this before: https://vimeo.com/189596577

No reset should be needed. Publisher .227 just changed how things work.

I followed Will's suggestion and tried using the File Place command and that doesn't work. When I opened my folder of text documents they appeared grey instead of black and I tried clicking on the document and it wouldn't respond. Other suggestions? Thanks.

This is from one of the release notes...

"Text > Insert Text from File has been removed and File > Place should be used instead. The types of files available via File > Place depends on context, for example if a Text Frame is selected then text files will be made available."

 


Due to the fact that Boris Johnson is now our Prime Minister, punctuation, spelling and grammar will never be worried about ever again.  We now have far bigger problems to be concerned about.

The OP also has several topics, and has already opened one in the Publisher Mac bugs forum.
