  1. OK, but is there a way to have 2 languages applied to the same style, when the same text contains a phrase in English and another phrase in French, for example?
  2. Thanks! I didn't notice it was already here. 2 other questions: Is the French dictionary available yet, and is there a way to activate both French and English dictionary at the same time for the same document?
  3. Is there a way to set Hyphenation settings in another language than english, so that the words are cut at the right places?
  4. Is there a way to have the TOC refresh automatically when pages are added to the book, by the way?
  5. Thank you for your reply! The TOC being at the end of the book, it was only a matter of checking the "Include entries before TOC" section.
  6. It seems I have trouble creating a Table of Contents. I am following the video, but I can't manage do to it. I have created text styles for the titles set to appear in the Table of Contents, and applied it to the titles. To create a Table of Contents, I click a text frame, then use the command Insert Table of Contents. It opens a tab in which I can check the styles of the titles I want to appear, but even when I check the right entries and update, the result is always "No table of contents entries found". Is there something else to do?
  7. Strangely, it seems to work. At first, I tried to type "Page" in the same text field, but I had the same problem as with "10": All the letters were in the same place. Then, I created another text frame entirely, and it works, either with "Page" or with only the page number. I don't know where that bug came from.
  8. I am using a Mac. I put the page numbers on a master page, and everything is working fine for each page until page 10. Here is a screenshot of Page 10's number. The font is Arial Regular 12pt. The Paragraph Setting is Left Align, with no space before or after the text. I included two more screenshots with the settings, but I left everything as it were. No text wrap applied.
  9. Inserting Page Numbers works well until Page 9. Then, when a number is composed of 2 digits, the 2 digits are written in the same place, whatever the size of the frame, which gives for some strange page numbering. Is this a bug or are there options to change this?
  10. A little slow, but it works. I was able to open Affinity Publisher while the update was being installed, without any error message, though. I force-quit it, so I don't know what the result would have been.
  11. I am trying to use as less files as possible for comic projects using the same pages (digital/print editions, reprints, trade paperbacks, revised editions, etc.), and I think one of the ways to do this would be to have the option of grouping Page thumbnails into folders, and having a check box beside each page and folder. This way, we could just check the pages to export in a project before exporting it to PDF for example. Would it be possible to have such an option in Affinity Publisher?
  12. Wow! That's great! I can see where this is going, and it was unexpected even though I'm now used to open Designer documents in Photo and vice-versa. Now, instead of trying to import images I worked on in Photo, I am trying to find a way to create a book with the whole layered images. Now, it's only a test, since the resulting 20+-page Publisher file size will be too big, but I am going to try it anyway, just to see what kind of workflow I could create. Now is there a simple way to take several layered Affinity Photo images and put it into Publisher as pages? So far, the only way I found is to copy and paste all the layers of a Photo into each page, but it's like creating a duplicate of each Photo file. It does work, but it's not very practical. Also, is there a way to just link the Photo and Designer files to the corresponding Publisher pages, which would mean having for example a Photo file with all its editable layers in a Publisher page, editing it, then opening it in Photo and editing it again, etc. all the while avoiding to duplicate the Photo files, and keeping the Publisher file size as low as possible?
  13. Ah, I finally understood what you meant, sorry about it. Everything is working as long as we adapt to Publisher's logic, actually. I will have to erase the image frame in the Master, and add frames directly in the pages. Having a way to have a frame content change in every page would have been great, but I can wait for a new version:) Just another question: Is there a way to add a fill layer, or better yet, a background color to a master page or a page? For now, I am adding a rectangle in the background, but its dimension doesn't change when I change the page format.
  14. It seems likes a good idea, but I still have problems placing the images as I did the first time. Whatever the page I am choosing, Master or Page, it seems the Place tool is only created images in a new frame at its original resolution. Is there a way to force the Place tool to display a preview when I hover over a frame, then place the image inside the frame using the frames horizontal or vertical dimensions to adapt to the frame?
  15. Yes, having the Master selected was only a mistake (one easy to make, since you have to double-click a page thumbnail to select the correpsonding page). What I need is to have a Master page with an Image Frame in it, and to change the content in the associated pages. Creating Comics would be a lot faster this way. Hiding items in a page doesn't seem too practical. I'm pretty sure I would make a lot of mistakes this way, without understanding immediately where it's coming from. It there's no way around this, better not to create master pages in this case. Placing guides on a Master Page seems more practical, if it's the only way to do this, but as we're still in Beta, maybe Serif can find a way to allow us to create image frames on a master page and change the content only on the corresponding pages. Not sure where to add the following comment, since it has to do with all the tutorials instead of only the Affinity Publisher ones, but here goes: Adding RSS to Affinity Spotlight was a great idea that saved me a lot of time. What would save me even more time would be to add RSS to the tutorials too. This way, I would know immediately when a new tutorial is available. The only other way to stay up to date is to connect to the tutorials page every day, and I am loosing enough time as it is on my computer these days. I believe having every news in my RSS reader is part of the solution, so it would be great to have RSS in all the relevant pages of the Affinity site, especially tutorials pages.
