  1. Hi, this is the third time that one of my Publisher documents gets corrupted while saving. This happened to me twice a few month ago when I opened a document from an external Thunderbolt disk and saved it back to the external Thunderbolt disk. I moved the document to my computer and didn't see this error again until today. The linked photos and illustrations are still on the external disk because they would not fit on my computers hard drive. I pressed cmd-s to save and I saw the first error window pop up. After pushing OK Affinity hangs with "saving". After a force quit and trying to reload the document I see the second error pop up. I wished such loading errors (while saving) would be handled more gracefully. -Martin
  2. The local SSD disk had and still has 60 GB of free space. My linked photos/illustrations are unfortunately more than that. Maybe the problem has to do with the external (spinning) disk "sleeping". I remember that I worked in another program for some time and then returned to Publisher and tried to save the document. Maybe Publisher doesn't wait long enough till an external disk is ready, throws such an error and corrupts the file.
  3. Hi, I want to append all pages of a publisher file on my harddisk to a file that is already open in Affinity Publisher. I looked for an import function but there is none. Can this be done without copying and pasting lots of pages?
  4. Thanks a lot firstdefence, I'll take a look at PDFPenPro and MasterPDFEditor.
  5. Thank you firstdefence. I see the problem in step 5: Will Preview leave the PDF/X-1a compatibility that my printer requires untouched? I doubt that and I'm afraid there will be problems with my printer.
  6. Hi mac_heibu, thank you for your answer. As long as I'm not confident that Affinity Publisher can reliable handle 300+ pages with lots of photos and illustrations on each page I prefer to split documents into extra files. Joining .afpub files into a final version just for output looks like a safe way for me. Of course all my files have identical settings but should they differ as you mention I would expect that the first document determines the settings for all subsequent imports. So landscape pages may be truncated and colors get converted ... Joining PDFs sounds good but I have no experience with that. I use a Mac and I do not have Adobe Acrobat. What could I use to join PDFs and maintain PDF/X.. compatibility.
  7. The newest Affinity Publisher Public Beta - crashes when I paste text from the clipboard. Steps: Select some plain text in a text editor( Cmd-C). Open a new publisher document (Cmd-N) Paste the text (Cmd-V) C R A S H Previous betas worked just fine. My OS is macOS Mojave 10.14.4 Anyone else?

    Crash when pasting text

    I used to paste the text and the text frame was created automatically (at a random size). Now it crashes. Well I'm willing to learn the correct approach and will start to create text frames first. Thank you.
  9. I cannot figure out how to include the text frame fill color in a paragraph style. I am also not able to save the text frame fill color in a style. The style only includes the white text color. Thanks for any help. - Martin
  10. Thank you for the answers! I'll look into the decoration option. You are correct. I don't know what I did wrong but now it also works for me.

    Print book layout

    Yes, beeing able to divide a book into separate chapter files is a must for me and should be in the first release. I'm always cautious and don't want to put all my eggs into one basket. Like in InDesign the book feature should allow to combine all chapter files into one PDF.
  12. Hi Walt, thank you for mentioning this preference.
  13. I just tested this with the current Beta for OS X The empty one page .afpup file has 8 KB I dragged in a 130 MB .afphoto file. I open Documents > Resource Manager and see that the file is now linked by default. I save the .afpup file and it has 95 MB I change the linked image to embedded, save again and the .afpup file is still 95 MB. Two issues here 1) The document size with the linked photo should remain at 8 KB 2) Updates to the linked .afphoto file only appear when I explicitely press Update. That means what I see may not reflect the current state. Updates should appear automatically.
