Hi,

I have Affinity publisher for both Windows and Mac versions installed on different PC,. while I have opened the Publisher file on Mac (the file was initially created on publisher windows pc) . I can see lots of format issues like text are overflowing and many other format issues. Same files while opened on Publisher Windows versions all looks fine.

Please help, why the software is not compatible with Mac and windows.

Regards,

BES

Hi BES,

Welcome to the forums :)

The font looks different between the two screenshots, please could you make sure you have the same version of the font you have been using installed on both computers.

Thanks

Not simply the same font, but the actual version of the font.  Unfortunately, different versions of the same font can create the sort of problem you are seeing.

The font in the Mac screenshot is not Optima. It must have been substituted.

On a side note, you need to find a good copy editor to fix problems with the textual content (e.g. “at micro or micro level” and “a practical design solutions”).
