  1. Thanks all for the help. R C-R had the answer. When I exported I selected the option to preview the exported document and Apple Preview box had the show thumbnails box checked. Clicking on the pdf in Finder also showed the thumbnails hence my call for help. I mentioned the jpg export merely to show that using that option a thumbnail is not shown on each page. Thanks again Rich
  2. I exported a 10 page Affinity Pub document as a pdf. When I view the document it displays the pages that i designed and on the left side of the document are the thumbnail pages that you see when you create the documents. I expect a pdf to show just the data pages that I create but that is not what I get. If I export as jpgs I will get 10 jpg images So what am I doing wrong?
  3. I have spent the better part of a day and a half trying to get my photos to look good in an exported Apub pdf. You solved the problem. Thanks Rich
  4. I am developing a PDF newsletter / brochure. The text hyperlinks (HL) work but I struggled trying to get an image to serve as a hotlink. This solution works and I thought I would share it in case others may need similar functionality. If this solution is going to cause a problem I would appreciate any input. The text HL 'Residential Real Estate" was duplicated and I placed it on top of the adjacent RRE image, dragging the handles to stretch the text to fill the entire dimensions of the image. I eliminated the color of this text, saved and exported the document and it works. I have not tried making a vector shape w/ tiny text and doing the same thing, but it should work This frees up space to enlarge the images. Hope this helps. Rich
  5. I am working on a document in AP and would like the header photo bottom edge to "disappear" like a gradient / gaussian blur. I have tried the transparency tool but i still see the hard edge of the image. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks Rich
  6. Dan C Thanks! Your suggestion worked and the new text box is placing the text as expected. I will have to remember that as a potential solution for other similar anomalies. Rich
  7. I cannot determine how to elimination the spacing above the typed text in the text box space. I tried changing all the character and paragraph styles to no avail. Changing the style of the char/para works as designed but do not help me with this issue. If I create a text box and insert filler text the filler text is placed within the boundary of the text box. What am i missing? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks Rich
  8. V_kyr Sorry I misstated my question. What I meant to ask was pdf for print vs pdf/x4. My document was developed in cmyk. So if it was done in rgb will pdfx4 convert it? I took my document to a printer to get an edge to edge proof and used pdf for print and it looked great, colors very saturated. The print didn’t ask any questions - he just said give me a pdf. So what does PDfx/4 do differently or better? Both options have a “more” button. Again the tutorial on this topic does not go into much depth. Thanks again Rich
  9. I was using the color picker to chose colors and understandably got slightly different results depending on where i selected in a font. Now I have a swatch panel with a lot of slight variations of a color and would like to erase / reset the swatches panel to make it easier to pick the colors that i want. I do not know if this can be done. Can I produce a swatches palette of several colors for a project and save and reload them to be used in another related project? Thanks in advance. Rich
  10. I am exporting my document for printing and used pdf export for print option in Publisher. After reviewing the tutorials on print export the presenter mentions using PDF/X 4 for CMYK printing and print for web as another option. I am not sure when to use one vs the other. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance. Rich
  11. How can I get the second line (continuation of the first line) of a bullet to line up with the text and not the bullet? I do not see it in the styles option of the bullets. Thanks in advance Rich
  12. I have a page with a background image. Overlaying the entire image is a low opacity rectangle. The background image relates to a specific aerial photo market. On top of this I have placed a large cameras lens. Currently I place a circle image related to the background over the camera lens. The image sort of relates to the specific market. Ideally I would like to create a cutout of the filter to reveal the background image. I would create a cutout on the camera lens in PS. This way the reveal in the lens would be the exact image not one related to the market and provide for "call out points" Can this be done or would I have to create both cutouts in PS? Thanks Rich
  13. I have a circular image overlaying a cameras lens and want to put a round border around it. I tried the typical function keys associated with this type of action and they seem to work but when I use the cntrl key to scale the ht and wt dimensions are never the same. The other FN keys seem to modify the picture frame from a lower left anchor point and scale from that point. Can this be changed/ A second question. When I use the forum to ask a question i log in. I compose the questions and when I try to add a reduced size image, I get a -200 error. I am still logged in ( according to the UN in the upper Rt corner but the work around is to log in again. Is there a timeout function associated with a start new topic? Thanks in advance. Rich
