  1. Will, thank you for responding - Regarding number 7, yes, one can export pages, but not selection. Say I want the bottom half of page 3 and the top half of page 4 Regarding number 9, yes, I just tried a facing page and the spill over only worked on two pages, not to say the third and forth, etc and besides, I usually don't do facing pages Regarding number 6, there should be a way to copy pages X - Y including all layers from one publisher file to another. What I can do is copy text (from linked frames) from one file to another. Maybe I am doing something wrong ? Thank you for responding - Jonathan Liss
  2. I am writing my autobiography. It is about 500 pages long with about 500 images. I was using Microsoft WORD on my MAC until it died. Not the MAC, WORD. WORD simply could no longer manage such a large file. After some false starts and using linked images/frames in Affinity Publisher I have converted the entire document with no issues. Some observations and requests that may have been made by others: 1) Absolutely need an auto numbering mechanism for figures and tables and to cross reference the labels. 2) Absolutely need support of Apple and other emojis. 3) Need to fix dictionary or provide option for other dictionaries 4) There is, I think a bug that is falsely claiming a resource cannot be found and some annoying bugs in and around converting an image to a frame and some bugs in and around tables, especially when trying to insert a new row near the top. 5) Need better documentation on how to remove text frame break 6) Need better mechanism for copying and pasting from one publisher file to another 7) Need a way to select which portions of the file should be exported to a pdf 8 Need a way to compare to files 9) Need a way to set masters so that frame linking from one page to the next can be automatic or a method to automatically link one text frame to the succeeding one. 10) Since each image (figure) ended up being in its own affinity photo file, it would be nice to have a feature that took the file name and superimposed text on the figure using the file name. So for instance if a file was called "Figure 1", that name would automatically be a text layer with the imported or placed image. I am not complaining, just suggesting. Affinity Publisher saved me, although importing was very tedious. The only way I could import accurately was to first only import all the text, then manually import and place each image. I couldn't use a image frame in the master because I didn't necessarily want every page to have an image and I wanted the images to be placed as they appeared in the PDF file generated by WORD. I'm sure there are other observations - these are the ones that come to mind. Thanks - Jonathan Liss
  3. This "undocumented" so called feature is quite annoying, compounded by the fact that I can't seem to find documentation on the three fill commands from the edit menu. I bumped into this problem some time ago when "placing" an image from stock. It seems from my brief experimentation that the three fill commands do not work on image layers as a result of my investigating this behavior. To say the least the on line help/documentation generally, and in this case specifically, leaves a lot to be desired. As Leonard from Big Bang Theory states "Im the king of the nerds" and I read the documentation ....
  4. I have all three apps on my MAC/Catalina. Only publisher shows personas for photo and designer. Shouldn't photo and designer show personas for the other two apps ? Kindly look at the picture as I have snippet the toolbars from each app. How can I get photo to show designer/publisher and designer to show photo/publisher ? Thank you, Jonathan
