  1. Hi there, I'm creating a manual and would like guides to help me line up images from page to page. These images would be placed along a vertical line through the different pages. Is there a way to have a guide extend to all pages of a document? Thanks. Cheers, Andrew K
  2. This thread covers it: Basically, all data is pasted into one cell when trying to copy/paste from another table (ExCel, Google Sheets etc) into AP Tables.
  3. Bumping. I'm assuming Affinity considers these shortcomings "as intended" and not a bug? Or should I post this in the bug section? Either way... hoping this gets addressed.
  4. Yeah... this is pretty much a "must have" for me since I would use AP for all our manuals... which also link to Video tutorials.
  5. Thanks Old Bruce, Yeah... i had tried every red dot combination... but for the sake of the GIF, I just left it as near to the corner as I could get it. I'm away from that computer now, but I did a Callout Rotate... using the rotation handle. I didn't try mirror inverting... which would have been a good idea.
  6. Hi folks, First, I don't want to sound like an ingrate making these suggestions... as a fellow developer, I appreciate your amazing work and realize not everything is as easy as it seems to change. That said ( ), The callout tool is very restricting to work with. As you can see from the GIF below, it should be very easy to orient the pointer in any direction from any side. Unfortunately, the current Callout Tool only points in 1 direction. That wouldn't be the end of the world since I can easily create 4 versions (in different directions) and store them as Assets. However, The text also gets re-oriented... so I have to insert a text box inside the Callout. And finally, the Affinity Publishing Callout won't let you point from the corner of the callout. How a callout works in another software: The callout behavior from AP... notice how it won't point to a corner: Thanks for any considerations. P.S. I'm very excited about AP!!
  7. Ok... So I tried the Shift-Move methodology and that works great! Thanks so much!! So the last missing piece is to give that same behavior (ie. maintaining the other cell's size) when using the Table Palette's numeric entry fields. Cheers.
  8. Thanks. I will try the Shift-move suggestion to see how it feels/works. Cheers for the quick responses.
  9. Hi there, In working with AP's tables, I'm noticing a somewhat tedious effect when resizing the size of a column or row. The resizing affects the size of the adjacent column or row. This becomes very tedious because you then have to resize all the cells to compensate for it. I can provide a GIF if I'm not explaining well enough. The resizing of a row or column should naturally push all the subsequent rows/columns while maintaining their relative size... not cut into their size. I hope this helps. Cheers.
  10. Hi there, I'm using Affinity Publishing to create some tables for a site that usually I would do in Google Sheets with ease. One of the workflow busters is trying to create angled text in cells so that they do not occupy too much horizontal space in a cell. This (AFAIK) is impossible in AP using the Table. One must create text boxes for each cell and then rotate them. And then when you re-size the table, it is VERY tedious to then re-align the angled text with the table cells. This really should be incorporated into the table's Character > Position & Transform section or the panel Table > Rotation > Angle.

    Import table data

    I'm on Mac as well. Mac OS Sierra 10.12.6... So if this works on Windows then yes, I would consider this a Mac version bug. Thanks.

    Import table data

    Yes... well, in this case I'm copying from Google Sheets... and I did select multiple cells from both the source (google sheets) and Affinity Publisher. What I got was all the source in the first AP cell. In all cases, the source was a vertical selection of multiple cells of data. I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any more questions or if I can be of more help.

    Import table data

    +1. Also, pasting from common sheet applications (google sheets, Numbers, Excel) pastes all info into a single cell. There should be some built-in comma, tab, or space delimited auto-import. Right now it is very tedious to import anything into tables. Unless I have missed something.
  14. Hi there, I'd just like to add my voice to this feature request. When designing UIs, it is very distracting to have an additional thin white or light-gray line around the UI interface design. Cheers, Andrew K
