  1. I know that, but what I want is that every left page has the point zero at the top left and positive (from left to right), like this screenshot
  2. Is there a way to set the ruler to zero mm (or inches) for each page (also for facing pages) instead of continuing the measurement from the left page? Thanks
  3. In any case, for each mixed content, for me, it is always better to leave the value empty, in this way it is easier to understand that there are different attributes (opacity in this case).
  4. I find it very difficult to understand which colors are actually used in the document. Is there a way to quickly check the used colors? For example, text that looks 100% black, while it is in CMYK. Is it possible to make a find / replace by track color, fill or text? Is it possible to make a color selection preview?
  5. If in a single block of text there are several transformations (kerning, tracking, scale, etc.), in the transformations window, selecting the whole text, it only show the first transformation encountered. I think it would be better in this case to leave the values blank, so you can know that different values are applied.
  6. I've always used a Mac feature that I find useful and it seems to me to work with all the software I use, but not with Affinity Publisher. If I click with the mouse on the name of the open document, the path is shown and I can quickly access the folder (or subfolder) that contains it. Is it possible to activate this feature also in AP?
  7. Text in the contextual menu is ugly to see (the text seems jagged), compared to other software (AP on the left). MacOs 10.14.5, AP
  8. Look under the View menu > View Mode > Clip to canvas
  9. I call it "C-fold" brochure. Usually I make a page for the front and one for the back (instead of make 3+3 pages). Then I divide the page with a dashed line (in Pantone color and overprint).
  10. You are right and I agree with this point of view. But if I create an AI file and insert images with different resolutions (high and low resolutions) how can I understand the real resolution of the placed object? In this example I put a photo at 500 dpi, one at 72 dpi and a vector rectangle in an Illustrator file. In AP, Resource Manager tells me that the file is 600 dpi, while at most they are 500 dpi and I also have mixed resolutions. In my opinion, indicate the DPI of a "container" (such as AI, EPS, etc.) is wrong.
  11. Yes this happens with all vector files (Ai, eps), Publisher indicates the DPI (and enlarging the draw it lowers the resolution). But that's strange because vector files have no resolution.
  12. On windows I also use SyncBack´╗┐ (the free version), only for backup personal documents, a really good software.
  13. Have you enabled the display of the canvas in the view menu?
  14. Compared to Indesign it is a different way of doing the same thing. With Publisher I can apply two master pages to the same page (adding the different master elements), in Indesign no, I'll do two master pages with the elements I want for each one, this is not a big problem. But having at a glance the possibility to understand the applied master pages would be better. The example posted by PMan (in the absence of a feature of the program) is not bad, but would there be the possibility of making the numbers that identify the master pages non-printable (for visualization only)?
  15. OK, it may be fine, but I was thinking of something visually more immediate. Thanks
