  1. My publisher files are in a folder called iCloud Drive > Affinity Publisher Beta I know this because I can find the tagged ones by tag and I can also open the folder by using "Show in Enclosing Folder". However unlike Affinity Designer or Affinity Photo the folder doesn't appear in iCloud Drive. I'd really like an Affinity Publisher folder and for it to be visible as my file management revolves around tags and iCloud Drive rather than folders. I uninstalled Publisher and reinstalled on my previous iMac to no effect. Now on a 2019 iMac running Catalina. Happy to play with Terminal to fix it.
  2. I have Affinity Designer and Affinity Photo folders in Finder, but nothing any more for Publisher My files in this folder show up in searches by tag and I can reveal files in this folder by using Show in Enclosing Folder. But they don't appear in iCloud in finder. a search using terminal gives (extract) drwxr-xr-x 4 davidedge staff 128 17 Jun 07:27 iCloud~com~seriflabs~affinityphoto drwxr-xr-x 5 davidedge staff 160 4 Oct 12:42 iCloud~com~seriflabs~affinitypublisher drwxr-xr-x@ 3 davidedge staff 96 17 Jun 06:21 iCloud~com~seriflabs~affinitypublisher~beta I'm running Catalina and have a 2019 iMac Any ideas, UNIX gurus?

    Scaling in print

    Hi Sean It might do, but almost everything I print is on a different size paper, aspect and scaling so easiest just to set as required. And now moved on to tearing my hair out with my imposition software! thanks d.

    Last Used Print Settings

    Thanks Sean I wonder if the following pieces of misbehaviour in printing have the same root cause: Orientation - Automatic - it gets this wrong. But if you go in and change it to automatic - ie just activate the control, it gets it right. Scale 100% - it gets this wrong, but it's fine if you activate the control and set it to 100% manually It's a pesky thing because you can't guess from looking at the screen what's going wrong. cheers d.

    Scaling in print

    Hallo Hangman Apologies for not getting back to you earlier. The problem arises because of a couple things; all of the other problems stem I think from these: 1 - it always attempts to print the whole of a multi-artboard document - Affinity have confirmed this is a problem in a separate thread. You don't seem to have this problem, so it must be some other aspect pf my setup. Probably stemming from this: 2 - Orientation - Automatic - it gets this wrong. But if you go in and change it to automatic - ie just activate the control, it gets it right. 3 - Scale 100% - it gets this wrong, but it's fine if you activate the corneal and set it back to 100% So thanks for your offer o help; but it does seem that there is something that Affinity have now got onto best regards, David

    Scaling in print

    Thanks Hangman Some of the problems are because I'm using dartboards and in some cases it will simply not allow me to print a single artboard. Hence even when you select Print selection or Print Artboard X it just reverts to print whole document and hence the red overlay because the whole project is bigger than A3. So the workaround is: - save the document, close and reopen - you can probably now select a single artboard - overtype the displayed 100% scale with 100% - set the document model to tiled not single That now does what it used to do. The uploaded file is a TIFF with Affinity layers for compatibility with my DAM (Capture One). Can't see a repeat upload being any more successfully. d.

    Scaling in print

    Further investigation reveals that if I overtype the "100%" scaling default with "100%" it then does scale to 100%. However the image is now printed top left on the sheet instead of being centred as it was formerly, and I also need to fiddle with margins. Is there a way to centre it automatically?
  8. I have an image 284mm x 400mm and wish to print it on A3 paper. I have chosen A3 borderless (307 x 430) and Fit type Scale 100%. I'm using an Epson 3880 and the document is at 360dpi for Epson. This is how I have always printed with Affinity successfully as it lets me print close to paper borders without worrying about printer margins. In 1.7 the preview is red and the image is cropped however. 2014-07-21_at_16-18-17_2.tif
  9. In Designer under MacOS, even if you use the Last Used print settings, print reverts to Print Whole Document. No other app I know of including Affinity prior to 1.7 does this.

    Print dialog needs work

    Similar problems in Scale value resets to 100% after printing and Range doesn't reflect what you set. When you tab after selecting All / Even / Odd / Current the number of pages doesn't change - so if you select "odd" in a six-page document the preview changes to three pages; but you can't get back to six. It forgets the document model.
  11. Has it stopped just for Affinity or all apps? In my case it was the latter and a restart fixed it.
  12. In Capture One the curve tool highlights the value of whatever's under the cursor so I can see immediately which part of the curve to adjust. Any chance of that in Photo?

    Print order for pages

    mac_heibu: have you got a solution for the OP's eight-page booklet problem or XCel's upside-down problem?

    Let's be honest

    When 1.7 is released it will be the complete 1.7. Ditto 1.8, 1.9. What Dave means is 1.x versions will be "complete" when they start 2.0. Photo and Designer have contained substantial enhancements in the dot releases - no reason to believe Publisher will be different.

    Let's be honest

    I'm certainly not writing you off and will buy a licence as an act of faith. There's a fine line between making a noise about what we're needing to recommend Publisher as highly as the other two apps and sounding critical. I suppose part of the problem is we're sitting here comparing the very fine 1.6 apps with a 0.9 version that's numbered 1.7. No doubt if you had done Publisher first we'd be sitting here moaning about the early versions of Designer. Comments notwithstanding the overall impression is "Here's a pretty solid start", as if Henry Ford had started with the Escort and we're moaning about the lack of satnav. Have a good weekend, relax and groove on Monday. d.
