  1. Awesome, thanks! I'm using Windows 10 and got this solution to work.
  2. Thanks! I'm a little closer. The default file format is PNG. Is there a way to change every slice to PDF automatically? In step 4 of your walkthrough, you say "choose PDF", but where do I choose that at? I've tried highlighting all slices and choosing an export preset, but there is not one for PDF. ok ok I figured it out. I have to choose 1 slice and drop down the options. Choose PDF as the file format. Keep it highlighted then click the "Copy Export Format to Clipboard". Highlight all of the slices and click the "Replace export setup from clipboard" button. Thanks for steering me in the right direction!
  3. Thanks for the reply! I wanted to stay within Affinity, so I tried solution 2 first. It's super tedious. The quick work I did with the Merge Data feature is slowed down by this manual process. I'll stick with solution 1 and open the exported PDF in Illustrator to export as separate files.
  4. I have an Affinity Publisher file. The file has 50 pages that were created using the Data Merge feature. How do I export so that I have 50 individual PDFs?
  5. Where are these options now? EDIT: Nevermind. It looks like they have removed the View > Studio > Textframe panel. What I am looking for (insets) can be found in the text style as Paragraph > Spacing > Left Indent and Right Indent. EDIT AGAIN: Doh, I was using Affinity Designer. I see this post is about Affinity Publisher.
  6. I don't think that was a Affinity Designer issue. I think that was an OS issue.
  7. Insightful comment! I didn't realize I was missing out on some functionality because I was using a Wacom Tablet. It would seem they would design UI for graphics software with tablets in mind.
  8. When I go to File > Document Setup the Dimensions field is grayed out and wont let me edit it.
  9. Can I get a screenshot of the layers? EDIT: nvm. I got it, thanks!
  10. Does anyone have a workflow that makes use of maintaining global colors when using pixel brushes? I was really hoping that the process would be easy, but it takes a little hacking to get it to work. If anyone has an easier method, I'd be happy to hear it! Goal: Have pixel brushes change colors when Global Swatches are edited. Also be able to select them when using Select Same Fill Color. Solution: Convert Pixel Layer to a Mask. Mask over a shape with assigned Global Swatch. Put the described combo inside of a clipping mask. This is ridiculously cumbersome. Having to switch back and forth between personas is a little annoying, but I think with a little practice, I wont have to think about it. It did take me awhile to figure out how the pixel masks work and I still don't think I completely understand them. A second screenshot with a quick editing of the global colors:
  11. Yes, it does make sense to try to figure it out. The software says Drag+RightMouse; I'd like to know what that means. I found this discussion searching for a shortcut for these functions to avoid having to use the Context Toolbar. Using the Pen tool works fine though.
  12. I'm trying to follow this discussion to figure out how to smooth a node. This whole Right Click to smooth a node makes absolutely no sense to me. It (of course) brings up a menu; there is no other functionality.
