  1. And now it will not work Steps: I paste in the full text and it overflows. I then hold shift and click the little arrow, and it produces enough pages to carry all the text. But it does not actually flow any text in. How can this be fixed?
  2. I wanted to move my margins out - getting text of a novel to sit further out from the gutter. But, when I moved them in the document setup, then moved out the text boxes in the master page to sit in line - the rest of the book has not followed suit. I have different blue lined boxes with text in one place, and margin boxes elsewhere. The correct master page is applied. How do I fix this? And what is causing it? It seems like it should work.
  3. To save myself linking every spread by hand, how do I quickly link all text boxes when generating many new pages? I'm on v2 and can't recall how this is done. Thanks.
  4. I've tried changing the units in Publisher to mm, but the ruler is subdividing in units of 4. So the larger markings are not for every 5 mm, but for every 4. So between a 20 mm gap there are 5 sections of markings, rather than 4, which is confusing. See images if this is as unclear as it sounds. Is there a way to fix this?
  5. I'm beginning a new project, and am rusty. I've created a master page for an image on the left and text on the right. But, dragging an image into the image frame, and switching to Photo persona, I cannot add an outline to frame the image. If I click fx in the main panel on the right every fx option is greyed out. How can I fix this? All my images are PNG. Would this affect the process? Thanks. Using 1.10.6 and Ventura 13.2.1 Screen Recording 2023-02-28 at 11.29.41.mov
  6. Thank you V. I know nothing about vectors, but will investigate! If you see the image attached in the response to Anto, I have another question. How do I make the white background inside the lettering transparent?
  7. That was a huge help Anto - thank you. Do you know how I could make the background inside the letters transparent? I attach the current version. NL logo 4.afphoto
  8. See image: I need to have letters on a white background, with an image showing through them, but masked by them. The goal is to create a PNG of the two letters, which have the design within them. The important thing is to end up with the outlines of the two letters. I need to be able to move the image around within the letters to get the right composition. Lacking the technical terms for any of this, the explanation may be a bit vague. Hopefully it's evident what I'm going for. NL logo 2 forum.pdf
  9. I have pasted a PNG image onto a new document, and wish to cut out part of the image to use for something else. How do I do this?
  10. I seem to have a vanilla setup in Designer, but there is no sign of any selection tools. And there is no help in the help menu - it does not tell me where to find them, only how to use them. So where/how do I find them? Thanks. Update: In case anyone else is lost on this - I found that you have to hit pixel persona in the top left, next to Designer persona, which is next to the traffic light buttons for Mac. It would be very helpful if Affinity could put this location info right at the top of the Help section.
  11. I cannot find the character panel on either Designer or Photo. Where is it? How do I make it visible? Everything I read says it should be here, but there is no sign - unless it's right in front of me and I'm not seeing it. The aim is to work with kerning.
  12. I have a scan which is saved as a jpg, but when I open it in Photo it opens as a pixel layer. I want to separate it from the background using erase white paper or similar, but it seems I can't do these things with a pixel layer. How can I get where I want to go with this?
  13. This is excellent - thanks so much. Between all you guys on the thread I got the job finished. Much appreciated
  14. This is the file in question. I want to recolor the cloud with a gradient Cloud stampe 4 ewp.afphoto
  15. Again - not having the basics down, I'm struggling to work through this. I've tried using the gradient tool and gradient maps, but they do not affect the object in question. I have taken a jpg, erased white background, and been left with a background pixel layer, with my object. I cannot seem to affect the color of this object at all. How do I do this?
  16. I barely know the basics tbh, so do not know how to carry out the operation you describe. Can you lay out the steps? Thanks in advance
  17. I need to apply a color spectrum to an object - a pixel layer in this case. I am fine applying a chosen single color, but how would I apply a 'rainbow' effect to an object? Being able to choose the gradations - whether color or greyscale would be useful. Thanks
  18. How do I 'nest them in the shape layer'? When I insert them in the layer everything vanishes
  19. Thanks for the reminder Garry - it's Photo. But I have all three. Are there any videos that show the procedure you mention?
  20. In Photo I have an image made up of layers. I wish to cut out and export part of it as a jpg. My preference is to use the shape tool. What is the process for this? Thanks
