  1. I have successfully created a hyperlink in one of the betas. But now the email link did not work. Only after ten quick clicks or so the email would open. I re-created the link and now it doesn't work at all. What I did: Write the text g.g. email@mydomain.com underline it select text Go text-interactive-hyperlink I accidentally clicked in the hyperlink panel "go to target" I don't know what this means and how to set a target. When I click the email address in the pdf it takes me to page one of the magazine instead of opening up the email application. How can I fix this mess so a click on the email link opens the email? thanks!
  2. I went to the help files first - there it states, yes, there are masks. But it doesn't tell you how to use them? I have used masks in Photoshop for over 10 years. Obviously, masks work completely different in Publisher. The problem I'm facing: I have inserted an image, and I want to mask out a part of it. In Photoshop I'd use the rectangular tool or the paint brush and in seconds the feat would be done. But in Publisher I don't know how to mask anything out. All I could do is create an empty mask that now sits attached to its layer. How can I get anything on that mask so it can actually do what its name promises? Step by step info would be much appreciated!
  3. As I have Photoshop, Wasp11b, I don't have Affinity Photo installed. Thank you carl123 - so you are not masking off, but creating a shape through which you view what can be seen.
  4. No, Walter, I sent a pdf of my magazine to my rep and she put it on her google docs and noticed all images had disappeared. The magazine's first issue that I had created with a beta version did not do this.
  5. With the recent version of Publisher, the pdfs created by it do not show any images when opened in Google Docs. This is the pdf of the second issue of the magazine I created. The first issue opened with all the images in Google Docs. Could there be an issue with the pdf creation? Both times the pdf was created "for print" with all images rasterized.
  6. So there is nothing wrong with the pdfs output by Publisher? Is there an explanation why Publisher-created pdfs lose all images when opening them in Google Docs?
  7. I had done several versions of a document and wanted to check on the size. I clicked "document setup" and the size information was not there any more. How can I check the size of a document before I send it off to the printer? Thanks!
  8. Could this also be the reason why a pdf created by Affinity Publisher loses all images when placed on Google Docs?
  9. I'd like to create a selection of "regularly used fonts" so I don't have to always browse the whole list. I looked it up, but the sparse help document only gives you font manager as a reply, which is not the right thing. I'd also like to delete ugly fonts like Comic sans, chalkduster and other horrors. I'd like my favorite fonts being grouped before all the others so I can quickly access them. How can I do that? Thanks!
  10. Thank you, kazrbutler! This helps a lot! (this wasn't in the help files)
  11. It is easy to color the background with the rectangle tool. But it totally sabotages any further work. I just tried to move a whole composition on a black background - but I can't select them. because of this damn rectangle tool whenever I try to select the elements on the page, the frame tool gets selected and the frame moves, but not the content. How can I get out of this? I'd like to fill the page with black without the annoying rectangle tool that sits like a block there and prohibits selecting a larger group of items and therefore moving them. I can only select one of two, but not eight or nine elements to move together. The rectangle tool blocks everything.
  12. Thank you, Walt! This saves me to select each and every item in the design to move them together! Locking the rectangle layer will be it!
  13. I was trying to get Publisher with the link provided, but the store didn't recognize my correct password and I couldn't buy the software. Why is this not working? I need to do work on the next issue of my magazine, but the beta doesn't open either. So I'm stranded without software.
  14. SOLUTION: I did a password reset. I reset it to the SAME password I already had (so I won't get kicked out of the forum with a "wrong password" message) I was able to buy the software now. thanks for your support!
  15. Then I clicked "sign into this account" and it again did not work. PS: system created new post instead of - as I chose - edit the old one.
  16. Tried to create a new account. But when I entered my email, I got the message that there is already an account with this username - see screenshot.
  17. Ah, then I have to create a second account then - just for the store. I'll do that and report back.
  18. No error message. After clicking sign in I get the "signing in", it gets interrupted, then if falls back to the sign-in screen.
  19. Just put the password in manually - doesn't work. Can't log into the store.
  20. The Magazine I created on Publisher for the Mac has page dimensions 2100 pixels high x 1500 pixels wide. But when I export it, it shrinks to tiny 500 pixels high. I tried several ways, but I can't get it out in the original size. Why does Publisher shrink my magazine to stamp dimensions?
  21. The pdf shows as 5x7 inch - not shrunk, in Adobe Reader. The Get Info tool on the mac cannot read pdf dimensions properly and shows nonsense. thank you!
  22. How do you do that in Acrobat Reader?
  23. I don't think it is the dimension of the icon. But there's one thing: when I Command + I with a jpeg, it says "dimension" But in case of the pdf is says "resolution" - which doesn't make any sense because resolution is dots per inch or per centimeter and not something 360x504 Looks like the Get Image Info command doesn't work for pdf.
  24. Actually, I exported it for print, as the export for the web is of such low quality it is pixelated and unusable.
