  1. I've got a AfDesigner file with about 70 spreads and have imported that file in a AfPublisher master page. I then select "Edit detached" per page to change the spread page number of the imported AfDesigner file. Then, when I make some changes in the AfDesigner file and update the file with the Resource Manager in AfPublisher it updates the master page but leaves the other pages untouched? In a way I understand this behaviour but there's no way to update the AfDesigner spreads in the rest of the pages, they do not show up in the Resource Manager. Am I missing something?
  2. Sorry... I meant a selection of files not pages... You can now only select one file.
  3. Ok... Until then is it possible to implement the possibility to add more than one page at once (a selection of pages) when using "Add page from file"? Or import them as resources instead of embedding them?
  4. The problem is that the 45 pdf files have around 8 pages each... To bad Publisher still lacks the book feature like inDesign.
  5. I mean large as in many pages. Because the book feature (like inDesign Book) isn't implemented yet I need a method to export and control many large files. I need to import pdf files as a resource which can be updated when they change. When adding pages from files they become embedded instead of being a resource, this means I have to make a new file and again import over 45 separate pdf files.
  6. When importing larges files like pdf files I need the possibility to update them when the pdf file changes/updates. But when I use the "Add pages from file" it just embeds them? Why isn't it possible to import a second or third page as a resource from a PDF in AP? Cheers, Peter
  7. Hi, How do I change the margin border color and its width? Cheers, Peter
  8. When Selecting a grid with a 5mm spacing and 10 divisions you only get a grid line every mm in stead of a line every 0.5mm. Even when zooming in it is not showing up. See image below.
  9. Hi, I've got an issue with AD & AP. And that is that white text is automatically set to overprint. just create a file in AD with e.g. just a colored rectangle and a white text on top, then import that .afdesign file in AP and export it to pdf. Multiple printers have called me to say that the pdf is "corrupt". the preview seems ok but when they output the file the white is set to overprint. When you convert the text to curves it is knocked out? But converting to curves isn't always possible. Is there a menu like AI to see what is set to overprint and what not? Peter
  10. When you create a group and switch to Outline view mode you can still drag the single objects.
  11. When you rotate an item you can view the regular bounds by clicking on the "Cycle selection box" but how do i reset the bounds of an object completely so that I do not have to click on that button every time?
  12. Unfortunately it's too limited to be any useful at the moment.
  13. I.m.o Publisher is the one program that almost always has to export so an export persona seems obvious. In addition to the aforementioned requests maybe an easy/simple functional Impostion feature.
  14. Ok... ill try to explain. When we design product range packaging like boxes or labels we have a lot of base files made in e.g. AD (backgrounds, logos, design elements, ingredients etc.). In APu we place all of these files for each product range. Every single product (one page in a product range) is a combination of the different artboards in the AD base files. One element of these base files are embossing shapes, die cut shape and general markers for post production. We need to export these files in one PDF file as proof and for production. The customer expects a proof pdf with all of the embossing shapes, die cut shapes etc. (because, well... customer) and for production all those shapes need to be excluded. Sometimes you can exclude colours but when there are a lot of different shapes you'd rather remove them all together from the export. But in APu that's also not possible. Exporting this one page at a time in AD is a bit cumbersome. It's funny that the one program that needs to export, doesn't have an export persona
