  1. I have a PDF eBook I'm creating. I want some side boxes with text and maybe an image throughout the doc. What is the best way to produce this? Currently, I created an inline box and got the text over the top but I can't see how to connect them together so they stay together. When I select them both the "Group" feature doesn't activate. Is there a better way to accomplish this? Thanks
  2. this is using - Affinity Publisher Problem solved
  3. I have my text now on my page and I want to drag in some Picture Frames but they won't drag over. Im going back through the videos but if someone has a quick way to troubleshoot I'd appreciate it. Thanks
  4. yes, thats what I did thanks
  5. i think I got it. I found the text frame panel and I see now that I can convert a rectangle to a text frame panel. Thanks
  6. hmmm not seeing how to turn on the outer frame of a text box to make my box
  7. Het Walt, so are you saying make the box within the text frame? Let me go test that. Thanks sure appreciate it
  8. I have imported some tabs from Apple Notes that were using the line feature. Basically it looks like lines people can write on. After import, the lines disappeared. What is the best way to achieve the same effect? I want to create a space people can write some notes in a guide Im creating. Thank you

  11. ok I think I got this worked out finally.
  12. Looking if anyone knows of any Free Money Back Guarantee or Satisfaction badges designed in Affinity Designer I can adapt to my need? Thanks

  14. I have a document I created. Right now it has a white background I want to make transparent. In Affinity Photo there is a checkbox I clicked to remove the background. I don't see that feature in AD. How do I export with a transparent background?
  15. I would love some tutorials on: How to spice up a simple screen shot or picture of my lead magnet. For example: skew it, add a shadow, maybe perspective reflection below it, angle it. Im constantly needing to do this for various Lead Magnets I use in my online marketing.

    I meant if it was at 0. That is what happened to me. I had no idea this had to be set.

    Maybe as a user like me drags the lever the Maximum Letter Spacing automatically moves if its not already set to a higher number.
  19. Need help understanding how to best proceed. Using Affinity Photo. Have an image that is 600 x 600 px at 72 dpi. What is the best way to shrink so it shows up clear to see when I place it on a web page? What I did was to write the signature with a font that looks like script then import the persons image (with a circular mask around it that I saved as a png file out of Affinity Photo) and place it below the signature. Problem is its really blurry when I try and use on a webpage. Can someone enlighten me as to what I am missing or best way to go about this? Thanks
  20. ok will try larger size. Thanks

    Its called Helvetica Neue. Its been on my machine for so long I don't remember where it came from. just tested it does the same thing with regular helvetica that come installed.
  22. Getting back to this. Yes I had the dimensions wrong. Its actually 400 x 100 or 200 as suggested. So what Im not understanding is the best way to set the original? Do I create a large file say 1200 x 400 place my images and text, then export as a png file then shrink in the app? I've always heard in wordpress it's best to import images at the size you want them so it doesn't slow down load times. Ive always had a hard time understanding how to get smaller images to look clear. Appreciate this discussion.
  23. Thanks guys I will circle back to this in the next few days I hope. Under some pressure to get some client work done. Sure appreciate your assistance. Ed
  24. So is it best to create the overall image at hi res then in the application where I use it shrink it down? For example, in this case I want my final to be at 100 x 400. Do I create it much larger then scale on the webpage or am I thinking this wrong? My original headshot images are very large. What is the best way to shrink them then use in my signature goal?
