Bought it.
STILL no way to set a default page to open on launch - on launch I'm presented with a US Letter when I'm in the UK, which I have to close and then open a new document, which at least I can now finally set to my default.
STILL pages always open with the Source Panel open even though the program is quit with it shut.
STILL the spinning ball when I'm printing with a pdf inserted onto the page.
Still no arrow/line ends ...

Updated - on starting today, those first two issues didn't happen - it opened to my preferred A3 without the Source Panel open. Odd ... but good.

Will SwiftPublisher 5 be installed separately or override the SP4 ?

Thanks!

Opened today and we're back to the original behaviour. Settings are not being retained.

How is version 5 at opening pdf documents?
Can you now export to pdf with it converting all images/ colours to cmyk or do you still need to convert the images to cmyk before exporting to pdf?

Thanks!

If I create a text box, enter text, rotate it 90 degrees I can then no longer resize the box horizontally or vertically - it appears to be locked. The corner resize works. Is this a bug, because I've been able to do this as far back as SP2.

I can confirm the bug. It´s just not resizing when box is turned 90°. Other degrees work sosolala.

Cheers

Here's a bug:


I am experiencing the same typeface and font issues in Publisher. When trying out different fonts using the text box, lettering reverts to Helvetica and will not change or return back to showing any other font style. Also, I bought the Font kits and now am having many issues with Mac Font Book saying these fonts are invalid. Apologies for not having that list, I am more concerned with fonts not showing correctly in the SP app.

Not only does the font not show, it does not print out with the right font selected. Hoping you have a fix or you are able to pinpoint what is going wrong here.
