  1. Yes same here, not come across that before, so just tried setting up a document in that way from scratch in v2 and does exactly the same with my content.
  2. Thanks Dan - so for anyone looking at this, to transfer your export presets (assuming you haven't uninstalled v1): Affinity Store Version: Copy: ~/Library/Application Support/Affinity Publisher/user/file_export_options.dat Paste into: ~/Library/Application Support/Affinity Publisher 2/user/ I only had pdf presets and this has copied them over fine. (refer to Dan's link above for different location of Mac App Store files)
  3. Thank you for Footnotes - Was glad to see it arrive, watched the video and it only showed creating new ones in AP - "good start" I thought, "maybe Word footnote import will come in 2.1 or 2.2" - tried it out and it already works!!!!
  4. Hi Hangman, different issue, I've replied about yours on your post. This is just about bleed being visible within its own document, not placed in another file.
  5. Yes I'm seeing this too - in the artboard drop-down 'Document' seems to always show the first artboard, then all the artboard names get shunted by one, so for me 'artboard 1' shows 'artboard 2' (because 'artboard 1' got labelled 'Document') and so on. I also see your Page Box issues, and as noted elsewhere, if you choose BleedBox, the bleed is only visible bottom and right of the artboard (space is allowed for it top and left, but its white, not showing what's in the bleed).
  6. I'm talking about object styles here. What did they do to upset you Affinity? If Studio panels were children, social services would have been called long ago. Just look at Text Styles - When you create one, a whole big dialog opens where you can name your newborn style, tweak its setting, choose who its parent is. Create one from scratch, or based on your selection. Object styles? Create from selection, and.... nothing happens. Try again... nothing happens. But wait - there it is at the bottom of the styles panel, automatically named with a number. If I right-click I get to name it myself... or delete it. And that's it. No editing, no creating from scratch or nesting. Come on guys, show it some love!
  7. When you set your own keyboard shortcuts in preferences, you can then Save them and Load them into the new version. It would be great if that was also possible for Studio presets and pdf export presets, or anything else that has saved presets(?). Too late for version 1 though, so does anyone know a hacky way of finding the right file in the system to copy over?
  8. To be clear, the bleed guides are visible, but content placed in the bleed is not visible, you have to trust its there and check in the exported file (it is). This is only documents with Artboards. Hard to believe that this is STILL not fixed since v1 when bleed was first added.
  9. Some placed pdfs don't render correctly in the export preview when exporting to pdf. Happens throughout the publication, but not to all pdfs. Publication is opened from v1.10, but I can recreate fresh in v2 with same result.
  10. Same here, wasn't there at first, but appeared after a few re-launches
  11. I found this too, worked out if you click an icon and immediately drag upwards the icon correctly comes away - agree it's a bug though
  12. Yes reproduced here - and after that, an undo shows the picture frame out wider than it was as well, as PeterB says, deselect and reselect corrects it.
  13. If I place a pdf in a Publisher file, and use the fab new layer visibility feature, then Replace Document, layer visibility remembers the previous pdf's layers instead of updating to the replacement pdf layers. Same happens with placing a publisher file. Have tested with old pdfs and ones created in Publisher 2.0, same result.
  14. I tried the system-wide Mac shortcut for Emoji: cmd-cntr- space and it brought them up, but it's affinity's own interface. I've just tracked it down under 'Edit' menu - 'Emoji & Symbols' - seems an odd place to put it!
  15. Don't know if this is a regression, but when I create a new document with Prefer Linked, then place an image, it comes in embedded according to Resource manager. Document setup confirms Prefer Linked was selected correctly. Replace image from context bar, and clicking the new Options, then prefer linked DOES work correctly. I've also tried starting as embedded and switching to linked in Document setup - same result. I've restarted AD from first launch just in case, no change.
  16. @Gabe sure, it's a Publisher export itself A-Rocha-project-banners-800x2200mm-press.pdf
  17. On MacOS with any app of the suite in fullscreen, if you do File > New document, the templates dialogue spits you out of fullscreen to make your choice. When you make a selection, the dialogue closes leaving you completely out of the affinity app you were in, you then have to remember to swipe back to the fullscreen app where your new document is waiting for you, wondering where you were! Just feels a bit clunky, all other dialogues leave in the fullscreen app.
  18. Just testing placing large (not huge) pdfs, around 110mb, takes around 50 seconds with spinning beachball and cpu wizzing up over 100%, same pdf in APub 1.8.6 takes 5 secs. Similar slow results in Designer beta. Tested other similar size pdfs, same result. All tests done with a new blank A4 document, prefer linked or embedded makes no difference. I know it's an ageing Mac (see signature), just flagging it up due to the difference between 1.8 and this.
  19. On zoom in/out, the Mac traffic lights (close/minimise/fullscreen) are jumping down to the left and back up again - either with menu, shortcut, or trackpad pinch
  20. Hi Jon, sorry, I can't reproduce either now. It was just a simple sheet of first names and I added one more entry. Crashed repeatedly, but today with same excel file all is well. If I manage to reporoduce I'll update here.
  21. - I read it as down the columns then next the rows - you're right, they're right, I get it now
  22. With Data merge Node Tool selected, the Layout Order seems back to front to me - see screenshot, columns then rows should go down the screen first?
  23. Placed a data source, then updated the excel file in excel. I update the source in Data Merge Manager, but when I click Generate, an alert comes up saying source has changed, update or ignore or cancel - update or ignore cause instant crash.
  24. Wow, Data merge node does more than data merge - if you add an object in there that gets duplicated too - it's like power duplicate in a grid - pretty cool!
