  1. Thanks! I went back to the file in publisher. It’s changed there. I don’t remember doing it but I guess I could have! In any case, thanks for the work around!
  2. Normally, I can create a text frame that by default has no fill. Or tap into a shape, with the text frame tool and double tap in the shape to convert it to a text frame and add text that flows within the frame. When I do this, as expected, the shape looses any background fill. However, I’ve, got a document that I sent over to Affinity Publisher on the Mac to do some tables then brought it back to the iPad. Now, any text frame, be it a converted shape or just trying to add a new text frame, the frame has a pale purple fill.
  3. It is possible. Draw the shape then select the frame (not the artistic text tool) then double tap in your shape which will convert the shape into a text frame. Type your text.
  4. Yeah, as I recall this has been an issue for awhile. I have an old post about it too.
  5. Unfortunately this seems to still be an issue.
  6. Sure thing Callum... here’s one https://www.dropbox.com/s/fhijotovwfhal28/Chess Saturdays 2.afdesign?dl=0 And I’ve found this happens with any file that I have with multiple art boards. Sometimes I can get an export with the correct dimensions but I have not been able to sort out why it works. I’ve tried different ways... changing the height instead of the width, width instead of height. Selection with background, without background, or the specific artboard. If I try enough times I’ll eventually get one. Thanks!
  7. When exporting an art board from Affinity Designer I select a particular art board, change the size with linked proportions but the proportions are not retained. Rather than a portrait oriented image I end up with an image that is squished. Sometimes it works properly but mostly not. This happens whether I choose the option to export selection (with or without background) or export the art board.
  8. His full resolution 16 bit files can be as large as 7.5GB each, I’m sure that’s beyond what the iPad can handle! But the smaller 8 bit images can be up to 3 GB.
  9. I’ve got a friend who works with huge files, or at least seem so to me. I regularly work with files that are 10 to 50mb. He usually works with photos on his MacPro that are 500mb to 1 gig using an app called Capture One. But he has shown an interest in using an iPad for editing away from his desk. I’ll check in with him for more details on the files but thought I might at least get an idea as to what the max limit is for an iPad running Affinity Photo. I suspect his needs go beyond what the current hardware can handle.
  10. Ah, The grep is what I was looking for. Thanks. That said, my interest in this was to import from pdf to test how well that works. I’d like to be able to dump InDesign and switch to Publisher. Assuming a future when I don’t have access to InDesign I want to get an idea about what it might be like to start with an import of a pdf from a previous project that needs to be updated. Hoping Serif will at import of IDML at some point because while importing a pdf seemed great at first any attempt to actually do anything with the new Publisher file was met with an awareness of all of the little changes. I did also try copy pasting the text from InDesign (even though I won’t have that in the future) just to see how it would go and as you said, it kept all my styles. Nice.
  11. I’ve imported a pdf from an InDesign project and as I clean up the document to re-link text boxes lost in import, one problem I see is that I now have line breaks that I don’t want based on the import of columns. Is there a way to remove the line breaks so that my text will reflow properly?
  12. I’ve got the exact same questions for these shortcuts. I checked in the preferences section for modifying shortcuts but could not find these. In the help section it says to use the home or end key for moving to the beginning or end of line but my keyboard does not have a home or end key (as far as I can see).
  13. This would also apply to Affinity Photo. Also, it may not be possible. At some point last year I decided I wanted to have all of my files on iCloud so changed the default save location to iCloud for both Designer and Photo. I recently had to trouble shoot some iCloud weirdness and had to log out of my account. Of course, doing that meant that all of my files were not just on iCloud, nothing stored locally. Yesterday I had a client request a file that he’d lost and I went digging. I’d missed the fact that Affinity files stored iCloud to not generate previews. This also applies to Affinity apps on the Mac. Is it possible for Affinity to generate such previews locally? Sure would come in handy for finding files that might not have been named or in some cases might have been named but just might have multiple versions. Whatever the case, would be useful. Thanks!
  14. No, I don’t have Acrobat installed, just preview. So, you’re saying that if you open that file with Affinity Photo on an iPad and export to pdf and open in Preview there are no artifacts? If so I guess it’s something wonky on my end. That fact that my client on a different Mac running Mojave is seeing it might indicate that it is something wonky in the export from my iPad? Just occurred to me that I should share that exported pdf too. Should have done that previously. This is the exported pdf (from AP on my iPad) that displays with errors on my Mac and my client’s Mac... Gray Bear Funky Card.pdf
