  1. Yes, this is what I meant. The curious thing is that the paginator invokes the “Add Pages” dialogue, when you reach the last spread, but does not do so, when you try to click back beyond the first one. In this case, the respective arrow is greyed out. At the same time, the “Add Pages” dialogue offers the option of adding pages not only after, but also before a page! So the current behaviour seems a bit inconsistent to me. Personally, I would rather prefer the paginator not to have the power to invoke the “Add Pages” dialogue … hmm …
  2. Convert to Text Frame and Convert to Text Path both crash Publisher immediately, when applied to a picture frame. Confirmed.
  3. What you can do: you can go to the layers list, release the child of the picture frame from the parent-child-relation, and delete the picture frame afterwards. Picture-Frame.mov
  4. On a more serious note, I would suggest using “Formatsatz” (“stylistic set”) instead of “Stilset.” The first one is the received OpenType terminology in German. Have a look, for instance, at: https://www.typografie.info/3/wiki.html/o/opentype-feature-r124/ I would suggest that you also check the other terms on the German typography panel. For instance, “Stylistic Alternates” is usually rendered as “Formatvarianten.” But “Stilset” is perhaps the most uncommon translation … Alex
  5. Okay, if we arrive at discussing dots a.k.a. periods, we are rightly called pedantic … Nonetheless, there is a period after “Aktuelle Füllung zur Palette hinzufügen,” but no such period in comparable places (which I find correct). Gosh, we have problems …

  7. Technically, the process of distributing pages to the printer’s sheet is called “imposition:” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Imposition So what you are after is basically a very simple form of imposition. There is an option in Affinity Publisher that allows you to print books and brochures on a home printer, which is basically another application of an imposition method. You could achieve your objective by “printing” your four-page document to PDF, using the print dialogue of Publisher and the option Model: Book or Booklet. As long as your PDF is intended for being printed on a home printer, that should be okay. Alex Imposition-4.afpub Imposition-4-Printed-to-PDF.pdf
  8. Something like this, as far as I understand the issue, can be produced in the following way: Create a new document with a single layout page, default master page applied Add a text frame to the master page On the layout page, right-click the Master Page Contents Layer in the Layers Panel, and select Edit Linked from the context menu Drag the child of the Master Page Contents Layer (that is, the text frame) out of the parent layer Still in Edit Linked state, duplicate the layout page Click Finish Now the text frames on your layout pages are positionally linked, and the document structure is very similar to the last document of @Matthias. But I might also misunderstand the issue. From the structure of the example document, I would guess though that something like this happened. Strange. Alex Linked.mov
  9. Hmm … it seems you are asking for How-to tutorials. But providing these is not the purpose of a technical documentation that ships with an app. Such a documentation is supposed to describe the functions provided by the app and how they are accessed. The information you are asking for, however, is of much more general nature. Curve and level adjustments can be applied in virtually every image editing software, so the proper places to look for the respective information would be general introductions to image editing techniques, available even in printed form, not only for Affinity products, but also for Photoshop, Gimp, etc., general Youtube etc. tutorials on image editing techniques, the Affinity tutorials linked by @dominik above, etc. The problem is that you might be able to show how a tool works in a short video added to the help files, but that won’t help you much with your particular file. There are the general principles on the one hand (these can be illustrated by videos), but there is also the individual file on the other. And the application of the principles to the individual file requires judgement that can only be achieved by gaining experience. Different files will require different strategies, and these cannot be covered within a technical documentation.

    Sorry, I must have misunderstood your clarification. Even if it was clear enough.
  11. I can get it to happen also with an existing rectangle that I select.
