  1. Sure! This was recorded in the lastest version of Publisher. aaa.mp4
  2. Hi! When I place a page from another Publisher file (with Page Box: Bleedbox selected), if the source is linked the bleed is still there when you save and open the file. However, if you change the page file from linked to embedded in the Resource Manager, the bleed disappears when you save and open again and there is no Page Box option available (it appears again if you relink the file and then save and open). I don't know if this is supposed to happen with embedded Publisher files since it should keep the same page size before embedding it, but I thought maybe someone else had the same problem.
  3. It also happens with Publisher? I was planning to reinstall 1.8.5 due to the RAM issue, but I already saved previous files created with 1.8.5 with 1.9 and I had the same problem with Photo.
  4. Thanks a lot, Dan! It really helped me. Due to not having screen separation, I use a trick to visualize grayscale elements in any color (which would be the inks it's going to be printed), though it only works in a RGB file due to the blend modes used. In the master page, create a folder for every ink needed. If you use two or more inks, the folders from the top must be set in Multiply blend mode in order to imitate the riso ink blending. In every folder, create another two folders: one named Color and below another one named IMG for any element of the document (you can create a separate folder for text if you need it). With the Rectangle Tool, create a rectangle covering the entire spread with the equivalent color of the ink as fill (the best reference for riso inks is the Stencil color guide) and Screen blend mode. The white background will be interpreted as black and thus colored, but it can be avoided by making another rectangle below with white as fill and Multiply blend mode. While I still have to improve several workflow things, I found this trick very useful to identify which element corresponds to each ink. I have attached an example file if anybody is interested. riso_example.afpub
  5. Hi! I've been working with risograph printing lately and I was wondering if someone here has used Affinity for riso before. As with screen printing, riso printer works with grayscale files. Despite that, several printing websites recommend to use registration black for small text (12 pt or less) and 100% K for bigger text, though I've also read that it's better to use always 100% K for any text. If that's true, the printer recognizes CMYK values. If I use Publisher to make a riso printed fanzine, should I make a CMYK color format file instead of Gray? For instance, If I work using swatches of black ink only (100% K, 80% K, etc.) and I want to export a pdf file while keeping the same % of black without being changed to a different value, I think CMYK is the obvious solution. However, I often find myself confused with color modes and profiles and I thought it'd be interesting to know your opinions or sharing experiencies regarding the use of Affinity programs for riso printing. Thanks in advance!
  6. Hi! I was writing a text with the Serif12 Beta font, but the hyphens aren't displayed at all even with the auto-hyphenation option activated (the words are shortened, but there is no visible hyphen). This only happens whith Italic/Bold Italic variants, Regular/Bold variants don't show this issue: I also tried with two fonts from the same family (Serif6 Beta and Serif72 Beta) and it happened again. I thought this could be just a font issue since it only happened with these three fonts and I think they were released as unfinished fonts, but when I did the same thing in InDesign the hyphens were displayed in all variants: serif12 hyphen.afpub SerifBeta.rar Thanks!
  7. I didn't knew at first that this option was marked and the texts were normal in InDesign, so I thought that Publisher interprets as if the texts are using ordinal characters. Sorry if I'm not explaining very well, English is not my native language and maybe I don't understand what you're asking.
  8. Hi! I don't know if this can be considered as a bug, but maybe it happened to someone else as in this topic. When I opened an idml file on Publisher, several texts had the "a" and "o" letters replaced by ordinal indicators. When I looked the same file at InDesign, these texts had marked the option [Ordinal] in Character > OpenType. You can fix it by unmarking [Ordinal] (InDesign) or unmarking Ordinal in Character > Typography (Publisher), but I was wondering if this issue can be fixed.
