  1. Since I started this Thread the download made some progress: @Wosven: no, I bought from my provider 50MBit/s and get this with almost all downloads (if the server delivers). @walt.farrell: The hops in between show often timeouts and have no name resolution. From my understanding this is normal if firewalls block the traceroute packages. The final node has a response time of approx. 100ms
  2. The traceroute doesn't show the slowdown. with the 14th hop the Amazon-Network is reached and to reach the download server needs 30 more hops. Looks to me like the Amazon network configuration is "strange". But this can only be solved if Serif as the customer opens a ticket at Amazon, complaining about slow download speed from some sites. I can support them anytime with my traceroute results, but we don't have more things in hand to help. From the last time I complained (in December) I know, that I am not the only one with this problem.
  3. The download is still extremely slow. Can you please fix this? I already mentioned this problem in December, and - yes, I know - the server is in the Amazon cloud, but somehow this should be fixed. If you need more info (traceroute or nslookup - whatever you need), please let me know.
  4. I digged a bit deeper into the problem and I believe, that the problem here is, that the two master pages have different sizes (A3 and A4) and that after applying the smaller master page, the missing picture is positioned completely outside the new master page and gets lost. Publisher seems to adjust the page size of the new master page as a first step and then position the objects according to their positions in th new master page.
  5. Download of all beta-versions is extremely slow since some days: Doesn't seem to be my network connection, as everything else goes with usual speed (5MB/s)
  6. Hi @Callum, this is strange. I embedded the pictures before uploading. The size of the file increased from 1.1MB to 27MB after embedding. Just now I renamed the directory, where the pictures are located here (to make sure AP can't find them) and then opened the uploaded file from the link in my 1st post - pictures are shown and the resource manager still shows them as embedded. You could eventually try with some of your own pictures?
  7. I tried to use the same content for different layouts. This is pretty well documented in one of the Video Tutorials, but now I still have one problem: When switching my page to the 2nd Master page, one picture gets lost (means, the corresponding frame is empty). Maybe someone here could have a look at the document and can tell me, what I am doing wrong. Your help would be much appreciated. What I am doing is: - Duplicate the one page in the document - assign the Master page "Katalogseite"(by drag and drop of the Masterpage to the newly created page - confirm the change of the page size - confirm the move of an object without corresponding text outside the master page (that's perfectly ok, it is a text frame which will get deleted afterwards) - and now the content of a picture frame (Bild 1) is missing and I have no idea why and how I can correct it. I'm pretty sure it is only a stupid error on my side, but I've not been able to find it. I'm using the Release version 1.8.5, but the problem also occurs with the latest beta version. Thanks in advance for any helpful hint Begleittext_Template.afpub
  8. I agree, this is more some sort of workaround for the missing feature of cross references. Hopefully Serif will implement a working solution fast.
  9. Did you check on the Affinity webpage? In the learning section are links to PDF-files with the shortcuts: https://resources.serif.com/spotlight/learning/shortcuts/Affinity-Publisher-Shortcuts-Windows.pdf
  10. Thanks, @Walt! Well, the whole project is a book and this will definitely need a regular index too. But I'm optimistic and hoping that the guys at Serif are faster implementing an enhancement for multiple indexes than me in writing the book
  11. Hi Bruce, yes, that is exactly what I want to do. Thanks for your proposal, this will work ...
  12. I am searching for a way to sort the TOC by Styles used for the entry. My task in detail is to sort instructions by difficulty, where the instruction chapter has its headline style and the difficulty has its own style. A TOC is normally sorted by the page numbers of the entries, but in my use case I would need to sort by the difficulty style first (Those difficulty levels should occur only once in theTOC and then the headlines - no matter if sorted by page number or by alphabet. Does anyone have an idea, how to realize this?
  13. Someone has posted a recipe how to realize what you want, but i couldn't find it, so in my own words: You have to create two text frames, one containing the field found here:Text>Insert>Fields>Next Frame Page Number. The 2nd frame has to be linked to this one and can be placed anywhere in your document, best pinned to the object you want to reference. The 1st frame will then contain the page number where the 2nd frame is located.
  14. The only thing I did last time was the reboot - happy not to have to go through this really time consuming process of reloading all pictures. Now I tried again the reboot and it worked - the file is accessible. I tried to open first with the newest beta and then with the released version 1.8.3. Both worked. I fear we are here somewhere in Microsoft's DLL-hell . I saved from process explorer all handles and DLLs of the process and when the error happens again we can eventually compare to find a difference. BTW, I noticed when saving the file from the Beta-version it blows up the file size from 22MB to >1GB. This can be reverted by saving again with the release version.
  15. It happens again.On one PC (sameas the 1st time) Publisher crashes when opening the afpub file. The last editing actions didn't do any changes to imagesand the images themselves didn't change too, so I am not sure if the problem is related to images. I also tried to open the file with the latest Beta-Version but this did not help either. This is very frustrating, having a file with work of months and you never know, if you can open it again, once you have closed it after minor editing.
