  1. I am trying Affinity Publisher to create book (300 pages). Adjusting basic text frame on master pages (when adjusting book size etc.) is a way to slow. It is almost impossible to change it! Publisher probably instantly redraws all pages… what might be a nice feature for a poster, but in this scenario, it makes no sense.
  2. Better option to resize multiple spreads is to use Spread setup button in toolbar: This way, You are able to choose if You want to work with Curent/All/Selected spreads. Right click Spread properties doesn't allow this. However, spread resizing is quite unreliable: I have experienced all pages content loss. Resizing of text frame on master page on 300 pages book is almost impossible - it is so slow…
  3. We hear a lot about plugins for Affinity Photo. But what about plugins for Designer – any plans? Third party plugins might bring desired functions, like https://astutegraphics.com for Illustrator…
  4. Thanks for point this out, I would miss that otherwise! However, the columns might be set symmetrically only right now, is that correct?
  5. This „small thing“ is reported for Affinity Designer from its very beginning and never got any attention, I'm afraid. But I agree that fixing this would be a massive plus, that would be more than massive plus, that would be Christmas in July! EDIT: It is fixed! Thanks to all Affinity developers! This would save me so many time! Can't wait for Designer update…
  6. Thanks for the tip. Unfortunately, it didn't work for me (at least in this case). But will keep it in mind…
  7. Hi Chris, thanks for the explanation about text issues. Would 1.7 eventually convert/correct such bugs? Guides are not imported for me. So You are lucky to get them. My guides manager show no guides for the document. Hopefully be fixed too. Chhers
  8. Importing Designer (Last MAS version) to Publisher (1.7.0140) is not smooth as it should be. I have run into those bugs: margins are not imported guides are not imported some text frames looks different (see screenshots attached) Note: Sorry I have to delete rest of design, but I could not share more client's details. publisher imports designer with bugs.afdesign
  9. Reading designer file in Publisher results in some broken text, missing margins and guides. Is this known issue and would be targeted eventually in feature betas? Is that related to older file format?
  10. I have recently tried to work with long text (book), +300 pages in Publisher. Until we have some serious tools to correct text (prepositions, smart quotes, GREP etc.) I decided to do some of that work using find & replace. But that works really slow. I mean really slow. I tried the same in INDD CS6 (and Pages) and those apps made the find & replace almost instantly on the same text (yes, long one). Not really bug, but Find & Replace in Publisher need some tuning I guess Thanks for fast implementation of replacing something with „nothing“ in the latest beta. It is really helpfull.
  11. +1 for this. I have also tried to replace one-letter prepositions manually (find and replace SPACE+'i'+SPACE replace with SPACE+'i'+NON-BREAKABLE SPACE…) just to try it. It takes years to replace all findings in book long text. It should work faster. Otherwise very excited about Publisher so far.
  12. As a number of Studio panels grows, I would appreciate the possibility to organize those in two column layout. I guess this was already suggested in Designers forums. But with Publisher the need grows
  13. Is there a way to create tint from Global Color? So changing global color would affect all tints used? (I know I can use opacity in some cases, that works for shapes) And could this be aplied in text style? Originally, I was trying to have two text styles based on one swatch, both with different color density. That lead me to the global color tints… Thanks
  14. Clicking „Edit Guides“ button in toolbar does nothing. The button is still on. I asume that this switch off this button, it would lock the guides? „Edit Ruler Origin“ next to it works.
