    Can some please tell to me what I do wrong? I will appreciate it. Maybe this not possible to do in Apub V.2.1.1 ?

    The purpose of master pages is not what you did. Their purpose is to show object(s) you put on them on document pages to which you have assigned a master page.

    If you want to change the font in a document (imported or not), you can do that by applying paragraph or character style on selected portion of text.

  2. When I tried to replicate the rotation of the line as demonstrated by Ash, a problem occured:

    When I draw vertical line with the pen tool and click on the move tool after that, transform panel says that it is rotated for -90 degrees. Now, when I click Enter to open Move/Duplicate panel, the line goes horizontally and the rotation is 0 degrees. I tried, also, to deselect the line and reset the rotation angle in transform panel, but it is unavailable.

    Bug or not. If not, any help is welcomed.

    Thanks for this fantastic addition!

    Would love to have keyboard shortcuts to activate each of the available fields. So, in Windows, ALT + H would be equivalent to clicking the Horizontal field, i.e., highlighted, ready to type new value or turn on/off. Tabbing through the fields already works great. Suggested:

    • H - Horizontal
    • V - Vertical
    • D - Distance
    • A - Angle
    • P - Duplicate
    • C - Number of Copies

    For those of us who do everything possible by keyboard, additions like these keyboard shortcuts (and the new function itself) make us much faster/more productive.

    Maybe Affinity have to assign shortcuts to every menu and submenu like Microsoft has done within Word, Excel...


  4. An odd behavior I encountered:

    1. I created an object.
    2. CTRL click on it and the dialog box appears, then if you continue CTRL clicking;
    3. on every odd click dialog box dissapears, on every even click it appears with a new instance of the object.

    Bug or expected behavior?

    EDITED: this happens in Publisher.

    Better not.
    Try to export the attached afpub file to pdf.
    You see that items partially over the artboards are getting exported on both artboards.
    With your suggestion in no3 it would not be possible anymore and it would mean I need to duplicate all those items and line them up to make this happen.

    In your case, you can save them in PDF as spreads.

    BTW, why you imported artboards into Publisher? Do you have problems with Designer?

    How we could track what position it was in before it was dragged off? What happens when you add new objects/layers when you want to drag it back or you've deleted objects?

    It sounds like it would cause more issues than would solve. I get why you have suggested this but I'm not sure it's feasible. 


    1. if the object is drawn on the artboard, the layer must be part of the artboart.
    2. If the object is drawn (or draged) outside the artboard, so the layer must be pulled out of the artboard and put it outside of it.
    3. If the object is partly on the artboard and partly outside, the layer stays as the part of the artboard.

    Seeing your screenshot makes me believe that the rectangle isn't part of the artboard and if you move it on canvas it tries to become a part of the artboard.
    If you don't want this, first make the rectangle a part of the artboard and use the arrange menu or the buttons to move to front/back.

    You are right. The rectangle was outside the artboard. Now, it is OK. But, I can't see the logic of moving the layer outside the artbord layer.

    What is the difference if the layer is outside or inside the artboard layer?

    For me, if I draw on the artboard it should stay on it.
