  1. I've just submitted an 8x10" 184pp book of recipes to Blurb for printing and followed the detailed directions given on their recent help pages at Affinity Publisher PDF files

    I found it pretty straightforward to do tbh despite this being my first serious use of Affinity Publisher - I found Blurb's own Bookwright software so cumbersome to use and like a throwback to the last century, not that I didn't hit a few issues with AP itself - not being able to constrain find and replace to selected text being the most puzzling aspect.

    Looking forward to seeing the results of my efforts in print in a couple of weeks' time...

  2. As a new user, the current behaviour is very annoying - I’m working on a 160pp double page spread and 90% is a comfortable zoom level for what I’m working on. Every time I change spread, it jumps back to 78%, and I also have to re centre the display. So time wasting - even if there were a set of buttons I could click for preset zoom levels would help - or even better, a much more flexible customised toolbar that I could add any function to like I can for, say, Microsoft office..

  3. Hi, I’m currently assembling an 160pp hardback coloured book of family recipes in Affinity Publisher and looking for advice on printer businesses in the UK that others may have used. As it’s just for non commercial distribution within the family, it’s unlikely to run beyond a dozen copies. I did do a smaller similar exercise a few years back with Blurb but the software was painful to use and the prices a bit high. Any recommendations? Thanks
