  1. Hello team, I would like to see more features for the underline function of text like controlling of the underline position, underline thickness and stroke style. Thank you! Best, Karl
  2. Hello, after intensive using of Publisher I found a realy strange behaviour: whenever I export a file like JPEG, PDF, PNG the exported file is been opened within a separete programm like Photoshop, Adobe Reader or Preview. Can it be switched of or is this a bug? However, Publisher is a great product and I am very happy to work with. Best, Karl
  3. Hello befehr, I also discovered this bug. Publisher is crashing also on my Mac when deleting a toc style. Karl
  4. Thank you Jon, very good news! Karl
  5. @ thomaso: Thank you for finding the correct term! Karl
  6. Hello, I am just creating the master pages and paragraph styles of a book, that I have produced in Indesign and imported via a PDF file. When ever I try to create a paragraph style for the pagination with the alignment "towards binding" (sorry, I don’t know the exact term in English, in German it’s called "Zum Rücken hin"), Publisher 1.7.1 is crashing. I hope, you’ll find a fast solution! Thanks a lot in advance Karl

  8. @Blende21: Thanks for your tipp! I've used GraphicConverter already about 30 years ago for format conversions but don’t use it anymore. So I downloaded again the actual version and gave it a try. But by far it is not comparable with Lightroom when it comes to the management and organisation of 100.000 photos or more. It is just a file browser, not a database like LR. Also RAW development, retouching etc. is far behind LR and GC is extremly slow. I know, many poeple don’t know much about the huge capabilities of the Library module in LR but for me it is a unique tool I don’t want to miss. However, I would like to change from LR to a LR killer better today than tomorrow because of Adobes terrible pricing and marketing strategy.

    PDF export error

    … maybe you are right, but I am working/producing now with Publisher and a font converter gets me two birds with one shot. I also get the fonts for the web as I want them. What I like at TransType4 is the fact that it keeps or creates typographic families together. Not all tools do that.

    PDF export error

    Hello Thomaso, I just got the program "TransType 4" and converted some of my problem-fonts to TTF-format, installed them and exported the document from Publisher 1.7.1 to PDF-X4, and voilá it does work! It costs 97,- $ and is available at "www.fontlab.com". For the first 7 free trial days the program converts the fonts without limitations and no costs. It also creates fonts for web use. This makes it especially interesting for me and my homepages. Karl

    PDF export error

    Hello kedmans, what I've seen sometimes and sounds similar to your problems is related to short memory problems. If you have open many apps or the open ones use a lot of RAM Publisher might become extremely slow. Thus it looks like it crashed but the system monitor (Aktivitätsanzeige in german) shows that the software is just busy. Close other applications or just wait for a few minutes! Best, Karl
  12. Hello, I am wondering there are not more comments/requests for this project. Me as a professional photographer and photography teacher is really unlucky with the Lightroom situation now. I don’t want to spend $ and $ just to see, that Lightroom gets no real improvement since years. I still use LR 5.7 and hope a lot that Serif created some replacement to LR before my old version is not accepted by hardware or systemsoftware anymore. Of course there are some so called alternatives for LR on the market, but all of them just concentrate on RAW developement and a lot of effects for spectacular images. But no one cares about the library function to organize and manage a hundred thousand photos or more. And for shure I know a lot of other photographers having the same problem. The Affinity apps are so well designed, have an amazing look and feel in UI and are running very fast even on 10 year old machines so I don’t want to miss them and would be extremly happy if I could throw LR in the bin because I got your "Affinity Organizer"! Best wishes from Germany Karl

    PDF export error

    Hello Thomaso, thank you for welcoming me here and thanks a lot for your tipp! I've tried it and yes, it works! Of course, it was hard for me as a photographer and designer to switch all my well designed typo to Arial. But however, it solved the problem. Since the fonts in question are working on various systems in many applications, even in a famous layout program, it made no sense to me. The point, that PDF 1.7 does work and PDF X4 does not work with the same fonts is also hard to understand. Therefore I tested somewhat more and it seems clear for me, that Affinity Publisher does not accept the old Postscript (PS)-Fonts in it's documents. I tried various vendors of different fonts and the result is, that even high quality PS-fonts from Adobe don’t work. On the other hand TTF- or OTF-Fonts with incomplete character sets don’t make any problems in Publisher. Since the PS-Fonts are not damaged it just might be an incompatibility. The solution: buying a font converter that costs a lot more than publisher. :-( Again, thanks for your help and best wishes from Black forrest area Karl
  14. Hi, first of all a great "Thank you very much ,for this fantastic software!". It's long ago that I was so much amazed by an app like I did with Publisher Beta and the final version. You all did a great job. The days of using software that I have to rent are counted. But I am sorry to say, I found an importatnt issue that keeps me from using Publisher 1.7.1 on Mac for production work: After creating something that has to be printed in a printing house I tried to create an X4 PDF, but without luck. I always get the message about an export error (without any specifications). I tried various settings and found this: My documet is made in RGB modus, even the photos are in RGB. Since PDF X4 is CMYK I selected CMYK colorspace and switched on the converting option also for photos. Whatever I try, the software stops with the same error. If I use PDF 1.7 which is an RGB PDF, then everything works fine. But my printing house of course wants CMYK. Is this a bug or did I do something wrong? What can I do? Is there any help? Thanks a lot in advance Karl
