  1. Thanks, Thomaso! Never heard about "Symbols", will look more into this solution.
  2. Hej! I really love how good Publisher is with creating any of things that could be either shown or printed. But when it comes to a creative process, pages are more variants than really pages. And today was a day I saw that Designer have "artboards" that seens far more convenient for that purpose. So I tried but can't figure out is it possible to set guides, columns and rows as default for every new artboard? PS Or maybe there's "special mode" in Publisher available where pages can be displayed like artboards?
  3. But you can have pictures either included into the Publishers file or linked right now. Even more, when you create a project from scratch, Publisher will ask you after several pictures whether you want to keep multimedia files included or switch to linked files to save resources.
  4. I would assume, that Publisher is pushing rather master pages than templates. Basically, it looks like master pages are "templates" in the Publisher flow, but only within one file. As for me, I would rather have the possibility to use/move master pages between different files — a kind of a "library for all master pages I've created.
  5. It was only my concern that I got term "imposition" correctly. I've never faced it before.
  6. Well, according to https://affinity.help/publisher/English.lproj/index.html?page=pages/Publishing/print.html?title=Print Imposition means that your pages are flipped and reordered at print time so that when printed sheets are produced, they can be folded so pages come together in their correct order. So, I guess, workaround with sections and then exporting it as brochure is special case of imposition, isn't it?
  7. I totally agree with you, that cover handling can be managed better with Affinity UI integrated option, since there're much more questions with covers than just put nice picture. But at the same time a workaround with separate master page for a cover doesn't seem too workaround since I can do everything cover-related in the master-page, including page size and separate bleed, with no edits on the two different pages in the opposite ends of the document. Seems legit for me. A workaround with sections and brochure is interesting, but to my opinion seems more complicated. I'm not sure I got you. Could you please clarify?
  8. Good day to you! I wonder if there's simple solution to make photo spread for cover? Like on the picture below: For the brochure this kind of pages are used: So. If I need to make photo spread for pages 2 and 3 — I just cover both pages with picture frame (btw best solution for pictures ever, thanks!) But what i should do if I need photo spread for FRONT cover and REAR cover? Thanks in advance!
  9. I deeply appreciate all your replies, many thanks for your help! So. For kind of simple tasks would it be correct to handle your document (with all images included) in RGB and convert the final document to CMYK when exporting PDF?
  10. Good day to you! It is stated in Printshop rules that: Where in Publisher I can check that, taking into consideration that all my images are RGB and are converted in CMYK automatically by Publisher? Thanks in advance!
  11. Yes, all my images are definitely RGB! But not only "auto" — everything is working in "another" way. So what is supposed to be done in such scenario? Yes, these adjustments works as are supposed to, as adjustment layers, looks like they're the only available in my scenario. I totally agree with you, thanks, but what am I trying to say is that in my scenario all these things works like in another way they should. As Walt mentioned, that's because my document is in CMYK but the pictures are RGB. Looks like that is the point.
  12. Here's my settings and CMYK is recommended by this particular print shop. Do you think this is not appropriate CMYK so photo persona does not work well? So, that didn't work apparently — but still I understand that there will be slight difference between paper and screen.
  13. Hej! I ordered to print a photobook a few weeks ago. I'm not professional designer, but I don't like options for print available, so I've decided to make this photobook with Publisher. When the photobook was printed it turned out that it was too dark. I can't say that the PDF that I've made was the same dark as printed, but still I've decided to make V2 of the photobook. I've never edited any pictures using Publisher, so according to youtube videos there's Photo persona for that. And tried to use auto-correction: So strange. Okay, Command+Z and let's try to use auto-color Well, it looks something is going wrong. My question is more about is in Publisher the way to edit photos slightly (brightness/contrast/colorbalance) before sending to print?
