  1. Hi max1josef, So how did you get it to work? I think I'm using the latest version 1.8.5.703 and not working for me. I can't find any settings or options when I place the pdf?
  2. OMG, I wasn't aware of this issue. Just finished the layout of a 56 page magazine and when I started to place all the Booked Advertisement's just about every one displayed incorrectly (See example below) I spent 3 hours online and in forum trying to find a solution. But apparently Version 1.8.5.703 will not place pdf's? So now I have to recreate the whole thing again in Indesign! I guess I must be naive - just expected it would be a standard feature. There was nothing in Help or Tutorials to suggest it would be a problem. A great shame as I did enjoy using AP for the layout. No
  3. Thanks for replies (And the math lesson Alfred!) I've found the problem. It's a Layers issue that is further complicated by the Constraints/Parent/Child feature. I'm very new to AFP so still on a learning curve. I was saving my text frame from a Sublayer which must be controlled by the Constraints TAB. (Constraints is new to me so I'll need to read up on it) When I imported the file from IDML various blocks of text were grouped together in to Sublayers (See image attached) A text frame Asset saved from a Sublayer appears with Constraints applied when placed on the artboard - which i
  4. I'm working in an imported IDML file. I've created new text styles and a text frame then saved to assets panel. I've done this before in original AFP documents without any trouble. But now, every time I save an asset it reduces the text to 20% of the original size. For example 9pt text becomes 2.2pt. I can't work out what is going wrong?
  5. Thanks Dominik. A much smarter way than I thought of. I created the line in Designer and added it to master pages to make up the header. This is the first time I have imported an IDML for use in Publisher, it's an old file someone else created. It's taking a bit of time to clean up unused layers and text style conflicts but it will be worth the trouble. I have been working in CS6 and finally made the move to Publisher for future work - very happy so far.
  6. Just encountered this issue when importing an IDML file for a 56 page magazine that used right slant hash on every page!
  7. I'm doing a lot of isometric drawings for a recent project. As a result I came across Affinity Designer and I've found it far superior to Illustrator CS6 (Never moved to CC). Unfortunately, I needed the offset tool feature for a diagram. After checking out Help, Youtube, and Affinity Forum I've discovered it's not available. The stroke method produces some odd results and is too time consuming. So here's my workaround. Drop my shape into Illustrator, add the offset, copy and paste back into AfD and Fit to plane. Then I can copy and paste, or transform the shape as much as

  9. Thanks Lagarto and Chris B. I have learnt a lot from this process. I haven't had to think much about installing fonts before. It looks like the issue may be solved. I uninstalled all fonts from Windows (Except system fonts) I ran every file I had for Helvetica fonts through TransType4 (which were stored in various folders) . Including .PFM and .PFB. I got a few pink assignments at first, but as I kept adding files they all went away. I'm assuming the file info may have got mixed up during multiple copies? Anyhow the end result was totally clean list in TransType4...
  10. Thanks for suggestions. I only have a Type 1 version of Helvetica, Helvetica Neue and Frutiger. I installed them individually and there aren't any name conflicts with TTF or OTF's. Apart from the Windows system fonts I have only installed 4 new fonts on my new PC at this stage. The Frutiger styles have always appeared on the Affinty list, but Helvetica is consistently 'inconsistent'. Both fonts are Type 1. I opened up latest beta version 1.8 today and complete list of installed Helvetica styles was available - so I will check again tomorrow. I'll check out Trans Type if the pro
  11. I have probably copied these files onto at least 5 PC's over the last 20 years. Originally I had them on a disk but the last time I copied from a flash drive. My last PC, I only installed from the Type 1 file through a font manager or direct from the Win 7 install.
  12. Thanks Chris. I'm really baffled now. I've installed Frutiger from the files I sent to you - they all show up. Only one or two of the Helvetica and Helvetica Neue styles show up. Did you manage to get all Helvetica fonts to install? Can you share your installation process and are you using Win 10? Yes I completely uninstalled the Font Manager. Just using the Windows installation method.
  13. Thanks Chris. I'd be happy to send the fonts. There are a lot and I don't intend installing all of them in the future. Many are Adobe fonts from 20 years ago - most of them still install and work in CS6. But if you don't mind checking them out I'll send all. Cheers.
  14. Hi Chris B. There are 282 fonts in the folder. Most of them are fonts that came with Win 10. I bought a new PC a couple of months ago and I have been gradually installing fonts as I need them for client work. Trying to keep the new system clutter free! At this stage I've added 8 Fonts with approx 110 styles. I uninstalled the third party font manager a few weeks ago. I have set some of the system fonts to Hide - but they still show up in Designer? Which is annoying because I have to scroll through a lot of fonts I never use. The hidden fonts also show up in Adobe Illustrat
  15. Another day...opened new beta version and fonts missing again. Seems to be such a random issue. Nothing has changed on the rest of my system. CS6 still loads all fonts. I've noticed that a window opens occasionally saying 'new font added to cache' (or something like that) This happens without any instruction from me - I'm not installing a font at the time. Could Affinity suite be losing fonts from the cache after a PC shutdown? Because everyday seems to be a different list.
