  1. Try watching this tutorial https://affinity.serif.com/en-gb/tutorials/publisher/desktop/video/337465816/
  2. Hi 👋 @Lord McSquash my colleague Alan Stonebridge created an article on Spotlight about Data Merge, you might find it useful as it is filled with knowledge and supporting material. https://affinityspotlight.com/article/populate-pages-in-an-instant-with-affinity-publishers-powerful-data-merge-manager/ Hope this helps, thanks for watching the tutorials.
  3. Hi @JMT just read this and I thought this tip might help you for now. I tend to work on long files too and I prefer to use a keyboard shortcut for 'Go to pages'. Just a handy tip not sure if you knew it but I prefer this in my workflow. Of course still upload the file to @SPaceBar and let us have a look. Head to File > Preference > Keyboard Shortcuts. On the second dropdown highlighted in the Screen Shot, drop down to Document. I've set my shortcut as Option+J as its what I'm used to but you could put anything in. Hope this helps for now like I said. Kind thanks, Emily Product Expert - Affinity Publisher
  4. Awesome! Fingers crossed for you! If it doesn't post some screenshots or a screen record so we can all help you here!
  5. Hi @larsh Data Merge would be great for this scenario. 💡 Tutorial here if you need it. And written help by my knowledgeable colleagues. https://affinity.help/publisher/English.lproj/pages/Advanced/dataMerge.html
  6. Hi @Omar Alamoudi Awesome to see you on the forums. Could I suggest a different technique. Why don't you consider creating an extra column in your cvs for portrait images and another column for landscape then import the paths in each cell leaving the other columns cells blank, if you're using portrait over landscape for example column as you see fit. As Data Merge is all about time saving right this would be the best way I could think of. I've added a visual example hopefully it will help you. Then load your data merge into your publisher document. I'm not sure if you have facing pages or singles but create a design for portrait and one for landscape. Then input your record fields into your frames and generate then in your new untitled document move the pages around as you see fit. I hope this helps and works for you I like your thinking on using smart master pages. Not sure why it's not working or something else is going on. I will look into it further because it would be great to use especially in scenarios like yours. But for now this is actually a better option thinking about how you want to lay it out at the time of creating the cvs. Let me know how you get on!

  8. I got your screen record thank you. Could you change to list view via your panel preferences which is in the top right of the swatches panel. Then could you do that screen recording again, but with you right clicking on the swatch you've added which will bring up a pop out menu. This time full screen record so I double check you're getting to where you need to.
  9. Good to know you are up to date software wise. Interesting. Just out of interest I'm attaching you a screen record of the steps to follow no audio I'm afraid. But if you could follow the steps and repeat them, if the options are not there could you please screen record and post back here. Screen_Recording_2021-01-05_at_10_59_11.mov
  10. Hi Roland You can enter/find the RGB HEX codes when double-clicking a swatch from the Swatches Panel. Then in the drop down menu you will see a RGB HEX Sliders. See screenshot Hope this helps. 👍
  11. Dear Emily,

    Please follow up the crucial Colour Cast in my Post, under Affinity Publisher Bug Report in topic Colour Cast, as I cannot solve this phenomenon.

    Awaiting your advise.

    Thanks & B/regards,


  12. @nPoikaI've sent you a message about this, please reply when you can. Kind thanks again.
  13. @haakoo Thank you for answering this in both topics. @rogershuff I'd also like to add that you can customise the keyboard shortcuts to whatever you like. I know your preferred shortcut would be CMD+D(Mac) or CTRL+D(Windows). If you wish to have this shortcut CMD+D, it is currently being used for Deselect(You can find this shortcut under the drop down>Select) so if you change this first to something of your choosing you can definitely have this as your shortcut for Place. I too have this shortcut setup. 👍
  14. Hi @Petar Petrenko, it’s a great request. 👍 I can look at creating one very soon. Is there any quick questions you have for now, that myself or @walt.farrell can answer?
