Reporting Localisation issues in Mac Publisher Beta #238

Recommended Posts

The current Affinity Publisher Mac public beta has all UI locales available now, (so is no longer restricted to UK English).

In the app menu, Preferences > General you can choose any of the 10 languages, restart the application and experience Affinity Publisher in that locale.

We do not expect to have got all the localisation correct yet and possibly we are not using the standard terms, so if you see any words or phrases that are out of the ordinary, or are clipped/cropped short in the MacOS build PLEASE report them in this thread, stating the language and version you are running and what OS you are seeing the problem on.

Use this thread (Do not make new threads) unless you are seeing a bug that does not happen in English, so Bugs in new threads, localisation issues in this thread

Some more on the Text Frames panel:

  • German equivalent for “Insets” is unreadably small
  • “Überlauf verbergen” is cut by the panel border, when panel width is reduced to minimum
  • “Breite übernehmen” checkbox and label run into elements on the left
  • The last one happens in the English version as well

Cheers, Alex :)

The small font syndrome also affects the German Paragraph Panel (red arrow). And there is also the issue with the scrollbars hiding other UI elements, when the panel is narrowed down (blue arrow, regardless of localisation):

German is just awful for UI designers. These long terms … sigh … ;)

Oh, here are a few more finds from my list. “Strichmuster” is tiny:

And “Greys, Colours, Gradients” are not localised yet (all swatch group flyouts):
