  1. Windows Ctrl+Alt+0 (zero) after selecting with the Move Tool (V) or by Layer works great! Thanks Bruce!! Displaying that OS-specific information with a right-click would also be helpful.
  2. Thank you @prophet for the reply. Double-clicking the layer icon in the Layer panel intending to zoom to that layer only works in certain situations; e.g., a text element created in the current workspace. If the element was created elsewhere, and depending on exactly what that element actually might be; e.g., a placed PDF, an Affinity Design element, there are different non-zoom behaviors accordingly; e.g., nothing happening, or opening up editing session in a new Publisher tab, respectively. I'm quite new to all things Serif and expect there are additional behavioral nuances dependent upon a given circumstance. Having used InDesign CS6 for ages, I'm loving Publisher!
  3. Ideas aren't exclusive to Publisher by any means, but where the ideas first presented Zooming with selection of element(s) with Move Tool (V) Select element, Ctrl+[plus key +] will shift view screen to center on element Select element, right-click, Zoom to selected element, zooms to full extents of selected element Zooming using highlighted Layer Select / highlight Layer, right-click, Zoom to selected Layer, zooms to full extents of selected Layer
  4. I've posted a couple of georeferenced PDFs over in this thread, in case you're still looking for something to test: Affinity Publisher - Getting blend modes recognized in exported PDF I don't have a Creative Cloud subscription, so I also can't test, but in regards to the so-called round-trip workaround, one added stopping point at the end of the itinerary, specifically for multi-page PDFs, would involve taking the individual maps being produced, edited, re-rectified; and then, finally inserted into a single PDF. Whether using Publisher or Designer, Affinity's vector-based toolsets are well suited to making marked visual improvements on maps coming out of GIS softwares. This is in no way meant as shade toward GIS softwares. Think of it more as making an amazing album cover for the majestic LP within.
  5. That's great! Thank you for any consideration toward maintaining geospatial integrity when working with geoPDFs. Please note that I have edited the title of this thread to reflect the blend mode issue first mentioned above and the workaround for Presets not allowing it.
  6. Here's the skinny from the developer: There is a Wiki page at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geospatial_PDF with some description. There are also details for the Adbove standard encoding at https://www.loc.gov/preservation/digital/formats/fdd/fdd000315.shtml, and the TerraGo GeoPDF encoding at https://portal.opengeospatial.org/files/?artifact_id=40537 . For the Adobe standard, the measure dictionary is where the information is pulled from.
  7. Thank you @DanC for your reply. I'll try and find you the best answer to your question; and in the meantime, you can try dragging and dropping the geo-PDFs (linked above) and dropping them in Global Mapper. This method of drag & drop placement applies to tons of other spatial data including any photos taken on your device with location turned on - immediate spatial gratification You can down load a free, fully functioning trial of Global Mapper to play with here: https://www.bluemarblegeo.com/global-mapper/
  8. Thanks @DanC - that certainly did make a difference! Much appreciated!! 👍 Is there anyway to preserve the geospatial aspects of the original PDFs in the AfPub PDF export? For example, in the files that I uploaded earlier, you can open; e.g., https://forum.affinity.serif.com/applications/core/interface/file/attachment.php?id=242091&key=18a3760a9185778eca6a5d9fe6c5bd4d in most GIS software and it will be correctly placed on the map.
  9. FWIW - InDesign handles blend mode in ID.pdfthis same dataset without issue. blend mode in ID.indd Mapping Sullivan RR - vector data for Page 5.pdf Mapping Sullivan RR - Page 5.pdf
  10. Thanks for the reply Walt! I'm not sure if the PDF file [Mapping Sullivan RR - vector data for Page 5.pdf] that's being overlaid onto [Mapping Sullivan RR - Page 5.pdf], both of which are generated in Global Mapper Pro v24.0, is at fault, or if there's something else going on. The APub exported file [Blend mode test.pdf] is using Normal, while [test.pdf] was using a non-Normal blend setting for the layer [Mapping Sullivan RR - vector data for Page 5.pdf] Blend mode test.afpub Blend mode test.pdf test.pdf
  11. (Windows) Affinity Publisher If a (vector PDF) layer's blend mode gets set to anything other than Normal; e.g., Multiply, Screen, etc., that layer is simply not being included in the exported PDF. Does this bug have any workaround(s)?
  12. @NathanC - Thanks so much for the fast reply! It seems like this functionality to alter dimensions should also be available from Document Setup, don't you think?
  13. Is it possible to change the document's size after it was set up? For example, I thought I'd need a full height of 14" (portrait, legal) but after bringing in the spreadsheet realize that 11" (portrait, letter) will do just fine.
