I've read several mentions of the problem, so never bothered to report it myself.

Same here. Serif is aware of this.

Would be great! It’s the same with the preferences that will not close after you (choosed a different language and) pushed the close button. Cats have much more patience or they want to fool us users? ;)

So if I copy vector objects from affinity publisher and paste to affinity designer it transforms it in an image and no more vectors but if I copy from designer and paste to publisher it stays in vectors...

Not here, both ways I get vectors pasted as vectors.

When assigned shortcut do the Narrow Non-breakable Space -> [Control] + [Option] + [SPACE] it inserts just regular breakable space works fine when inserting using menu even can see that had assigned shortcut but works differently.s

Hi Everyone 

I am new here and first want say I am thrilled to have stumbled upon this beta publishing program!

Definitely will buy it when the day comes.

Installed this version and tested the last one. No obvious issues yet. (Though having just updated to WIn 10 I am thinking I got lucky.)

 

HYPERLINKS - If there is one feature I would absolutely want, it would be to retain my hyperlinks when I paste text into Publisher. Currently the link underline is there but with no path to go to a website. :/

I am about to layout a few guide books with 100's of web links that I will have to reestablish.

If this is a feature that is soon to be added, I could wait.... rather then the druggery of putting those hyperlinks all back again.

Hi DNA0101, welcome to the forum.

Where is your text containing hyperlinks being pasted from?

Basically I copy my text from my websites into a text program then copy it into Publisher.

I tested a few word doc programs to retain the bold and line formatting with hyperlinks.  MS Word or LibreOffice Writer will save the content as seen on the webpage.

But as you know layout in those programs is a nightmare. So I am trying to develop a workflow to get my web content in book form with the least amount steps.

Uhh, a default Ctrl+W shortcut for Preview mode, I like it. Is this new on this build, or did I just miss it?

I've always found it supremely stupid how in InDesign such an essential shortcut was modifier-less and thus could never be toggled while editing a text box and, even though having to press a modifier key on every other instance takes a little bit more effort, seeing how your hands are both on the keyboard in that scenario and how it's a shortcut which you can perform with only your left hand anyway, not having to occasionally perform that extra mouse click and leave your editing task is a usability win by my book.

You may find my excitement over such a small detail to be a bit silly but, in all fairness, that's actually the shortcut I use the most in InDesign. Being the perfectionist that I am, I'm very conscious of my grids but also of my final output, so that WYSIWYG toggle is of paramount importance to me. I know you can always customise those, but having sensible defaults is also great for everyone, especially for fostering best practices when it comes to teaching students how to work with certain apps; the less preparatory work on classes and workshops, the better.

Another UI consistency nit I must pick, just to be sure: I see you've increased the button/icon size and total height, and reduced the left padding on the main toolbar, starting on Photo and now also on the latest build of Designer; we can expect the same change in the next build of Publisher, am I right?

Yes, that's correct.
