  1. I have similar problem on PC. Sometimes when I open my file, the fonts aren't available, even they are installed in system (if I want to reinstall them, window that asked me for confirmation of rewriting the existing font in system appears). Sometimes I have active only some fonts from the family. I've watching this behavior several versions of Designer. 

  2. The linking files is such a big weakness of the Publisher. The behaviour around it is really funny. Publisher wants to have all files correctly linked but accorindg to file size it seems all pictures are embeded inside. So I don't know, why the Publisher wants to repair these links.

    I understand this in ID when it asks you for changing the links. But in ID links are really links, it means only few amount of data unlike Publisher.

  3. No, I can't do that. This isn't possible in Publisher. And this is another case (not shoes). These things wasn't problem in InDesign.

    I have shadow layer from psd file (you can also link psd file to ID with layers, what isn't possible in the Publisher) which is set to multiply (so white background disappears and only shadow is visible). So there is any border around image. And even this shadow is cropped, which was helpful in case above with the shoe. But now, the stroke remains.

  4. Hi again. This issue is here again and now even the "Vector Crop Tool" didn't help. There is still some strange stroke around my image (the stroke isn't visible in Publisher but I can see it in exported pdf). I tried to crop the image two times, but the stroke is still there. So is better to do my project in InDesign and wait for final Publisher? I need to finish my project but these issues slow me down. Thanks.

  5. Today, I've found another awesome feature :( And I've started to have some feeling that Publisher isn't developed for bigger projects. 

    I had to change the location of my linked files. So I expected, that some change of directory with images will be enough. But when the window to find the lost link is open, you don't know, which file is missing. So by accident I replaced some of images in my project and now, I'm not able to replace them back to original images. When I click to "replace image" nothing is happend :((( So maybe back to InDesign.

  6. Good afternoon again,

    I would like to know the best working process for this thing. I'm working on catalog for outdoor equipment and I want to be as accurate as possible. I really love using of column guides. But how to combine them with grid? I'll show my question.

    I have products, which I want to put to the grid - to have same spaces between them, or similar sizes of this blocks. I have grid of column guides - 6 cols and 4 rows. And I would like to put each product and its description inside this cell always with the same space around (something like margin) and even in description I would like to have the same paddings between text blocks. 

    Now, only what I know is, to make big amount of guides or to make some guide from color blocks, what you can see down.

    So questions.

    1. Is there some better and easier way how to do that? For example set gutters only on x axis.
    2. Is it possible to set the grid to be exactly as the column guides?
    3. Is it possible to coloring somehow the guide lines or split them to groups for better recognition?

    Thanks a lot!



  7. Good afternoon,

    I have an image in my Designer project and even there is any border around this image,  I can see this thin white border. If I zoom little bit, the border disappear, but when I export this project, the line is still there :( Is there simplier way how to remove it than export and open this file in PS and remove the line with stamp tool? Thanks.


  8. Hi again,

    I'm working on project now, where I would like to use black and white images. I know, the best solution is to save these images as a grayscale to avoid some color issues in printing. But.

    1. I have png, which is saved as grayscale (I checked it in PS also) but resource manager of Publisher shows it as CMYK without profile. So I'm affraid that this will make some issues during printing. UPDATE - even in Affinity Photo is this image as a grayscale with.
    2. I have also psd file (just for sure and this is source file for png image in 1) which I've tried also use in my project. This psd is shown as grayscale in resource manager, what is ok, but this image is darker in Publisher then this image really is.

    Do you have some experiences with this? Thanks.

  9. And next really funny thing. You have file with size 90MB, then you'll remove one image (layer with image) from your project, save it and voilà your file has 96MB O.o And I've found that even you have absolutely same file without any changes and you save it two times in a row the second file will bigger.

  10. Thanks for your answer! I hope, they'll solve this issue asap. Because I hope they didn't developed Publisher as a program for making simply one site prints only. But the difference in sizes is really really big! I don't like waiting on next unexpected program crash during my work caused by size of source file. And next thing is, sending this huge source file to next person.

  11. Good evening,

    just a quick question.

    I really love Affinity products. But one thing drives me crazy in last days. I'm working on catalog in Publisher and I have almost the same (in content way - pictures, texts) file from last year, which was made in Indesign. And here is the thing. Even I'm using link to pictures to decrease the final size of file, the Publisher file has almost 1,5GB! unlike the 55MB of file from Indesign. How is this possible? There is only one possibility. Linking of pictures in Publisher isn't  true linking and the picture is included in Publisher file. The next thing is, the program crashes with this huge file, so work is really complicated now. So what now? Thanks.
