  1. 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...

    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.

  6. It happens in the newest version 2 -- beta and retail on Win 10:

    1. First I draw the ellipse and then the rectangle so the rectangle layer is above the ellipse layer.
    2. Then I move the rectangle layer bellow the ellipse layer.
    3. Now, when I move the rectangle object in any direction, it's layer moves above tle ellipse layer so I have to reposition it manually. And it happens again... and again.

    Am I doing something wrong?

    But I cannot position the text under the image which is in a picture frame. The picture frame is placed over a large text Frame that covers the entire page via the master.

    I don't know if I understood you well, but cross references purpose is to link objects on different pages and help locating each other, not to move any text up or down, left or right. You have to do it manually.

    1. Assign a color indicator next to the style name;
    2. Apply the color to paragraphs or characters as a text background or text color.

    A little bit of clarifying:
    Indicator color should be editable with option to switch it on/off and automatically applied to the text formatted with that style.


  9. Hi,

    I do some coding from time to time and not so long ago I got and idea. (Almost) all Code Editors use colors to indicate statements, functions, quoted text... So, is it enough interesting to you, to implement this idea in Publisher? It would be something like this:

    1. Assign a color indicator next to the style name;
    2. Apply the color to paragraphs or characters as a text background or text color.

    This way we can easily find parts of text that have no text style assigned, or have wrong text styles.

    These colors must not be exported to PDF or other formats and must not be printed on paper. Only for redaction purposes.
