  1. @ErrkaPetti: This feature is definitely no InDesign feature (and never was).

    Affinity Photo Customer Beta ( - GM Seed)

    The beta versions of Affinity apps will not appear in the Mac AppStore! For good reasons the AppStore doesn‘t support any beta versions. But of course the final version will be released in the AppStore very soon.

    Affinity Photo Customer Beta ( - GM Seed)

    It does no matter, where you bought your Affinity apps. Just click onto the download link in the initial post of this thread, double click onto the .dmg file, which will be downloaded and follow the instructions. The beta version will install alongside to your existing version and won‘t conflict with it.
  4. You can‘t get the beta user discount and you can‘t preorder in Mac AppStore. Both isn‘t possible there. If you want this, you have to buy the application in the Affinity store. But there will be a discounting AppStore as well.
  5. The shipped version of Publisher will be 1.7.1 – just like Affinity Photo and Designer.
  6. Open the text frame panel of your image caption and check „ignore text wrap“.
  7. The numbers, you are looking for, aren‘t coded into the font, which you are using. Therefor use the superscript function, as A_B_C dntion in his last post. By the way: would you mind, to react on answers to your questions here:
  8. @thomaso: I am not in front of my machine (watching Women‘s Football World Cup!). Did you try to check the „overprint“ option in the PDF export‘s „More“ section?

  10. I reported this times ago, but it isn’t fixed: 1. Create a red (c=0, m=100, y=100, k=0) element. 2. Create two color swatches: c=0, m=0, y=0, k=100, overprint=on, swatch name: „overprint" c=0, m=0, y=0, k=100, overprint=off, swatch name: „knockout" Assign each black color to a different object. 3. Place the two black element so, that they overlap the red element. 4. Now select one black element after the other: The color won’t be selected correctly in the swatches panes. Obviously, the color is defined only by its color values, not by the swatch name. 5. Now select the red element – it will be selected correctly. That means: There is no way to check the correct allocation of different blacks to different elements within Publisher. You have to check it using an extern PDF application like Acrobat Pro. Why is it important, to define two different k=100 blacks? Simply because it makes sense to assign these different blacks to different elements: Overprinting black to body text, knockout black to bigger black elements. Here a short older screencast demonstrating the issue: I have attached a sample file to demonstrate the issue. different-blacks.afpub
  11. But registration colour exists to be printed – normally on every used colour form. It is needed to print, for example, registration and crop marks in every colour. You can add the registration colour to your swatches palette by using the small flyout menu top right to the swatches Non printing elements normally are achieved by creating a new layer group, placing the elements, which aren’t supposed to be printed into it, and set this layer invisible before output.
  12. This seems to be „expected behaviour". Affinity Photo needs at least macOS 10.9. (Mavericks).
