    There's a risk that anything you've created and/or saved using the 1.9 beta won't be openable using 1.8.4.

    Welcome to the Serif Affinity forums  
    It would clearly suit your particular needs better, but it is not something that needs "correcting" as it is not something that we claim to do, sorry.
    Whenever one makes a decision about using software you have inadvertently decided to be dependent upon them and their infrastructure. In the same way everyone who chose videos does not demand that all DVD manufacturers provide a VHS drive too. If that's what you need then ours may not be the tool you need for that purpose.

    My thanks to you all for your help. And so quickly too. I can't say how much it is  appreciated.
    After trying your ideas and confirming what Walt wrote about the TOC I think I've found a way around this by increasing the right-hand margin on the TOC page and adding an A in a text box. It's not ideal but it will have to do. I guess that for normal publishing pages with As in them are never needed.
    Thanks again.
    Regards.

    h_d reacted to weegiegrum in Publisher: can you combine a text frame into a master?   
    OK, that method definitely works; it's a little fiddly getting the new text flow options right as I'm trying to do it one section at a time to avoid a complete disaster, but I'm figuring it out. And yes,  I'm trying it on a backup first.

    Click into the box (highlighted blue below) and type the shortcut that you want to use:

    You'll get a yellow triangle as a warning if your chosen shortcut is already in use.
    (This function is only available in Affinity Publisher, as it's the only Affinity app that allows text to flow from one frame to another.)

    I'll get on the hotline . I might have to pay for Jixipix first though, I'm still running the trial version . Although I suspect that once 1.9 goes live on the App Store, jixipix will be fast to pick it up.

    Are you on MacOS or Windows @Ami_M? If MacOS, it's possible (and fast, and relatively easy) to split multi-page pdfs into singles using Automator. Post back if you're interested. 
    (I've worked on single-page upload systems and they work brilliantly for the printer, but not always for the publisher...)

    Because I'm a horrible person using a non-local independent printer! 😂 Work stipulates I have to use Mixam for the books we produce and they have an upload system which wants single-page PDFs, and also when I send the print files to other companies they prefer having the single pages too. It's a boring job, but at least I get to design every day!

    The OP has previously posted questions in the Designer forums, so I assume he has Designer as well
    But your solution is great if someone just has Publisher and wants to do the same

    h_d got a reaction from jmwellborn in Cannot get Artistic text tool to work over text frame   
    My advice - don't push text forward with the return key. Instead, set text wraps on the images, with enough distance below the image to allow room for the caption.
    Create the captions using ordinary text frames (not Artistic Text). Set the caption frames to Ignore Text Wraps.
    An example of text wrap settings for an image (Square, Both Sides, all distances set to 0 except for the bottom, which is set to 8mm:

     
    An example of the Text Frame settings for the caption frame (Ignore Text Wraps is checked):
     

     
    You can use Artistic Text frames for this and they will automatically Ignore Text Wraps. But they will also go all wibbly if you adjust the shapes of the frames:

    Publisher doesn't have Symbols, but you can do it somewhat more simply using Resource Manager. I think you probably need to have your document set to Prefer Linked, not Prefer Embedded.
    Place on image on the page, then duplicate it as many times as you need.
    Group the adjustments with the image frames as per @carl123's suggestion above, then from Document - Resource Manager select the image name and click Replace:

    Choose another image and...

    If I had to guess and I am as I don't have time to test it...
    I would create the image "frame" as a symbol, group it and add its adjustments above it in the group
    Duplicate the process using the same symbol with different adjustments as required
    When you change the image in the symbol it will change in all instances of that symbol but the various adjustments will remain unchanged

    Hi Amir Anderson,
    Welcome to Affinity Forums
    These are PDF viewer artefacts - some are better than others displaying PDF's. It also happens with PDF files generated/created with third party apps not just Affinity. There isn't much we can do about it.

    Still can't use the Watercolor Studio plugin, but here is a first attempt.   I imported the JixiPix-resulting JPG into Photo, and then had a splendid time using layer adjustments to mute some stuff and enhance some other stuff.   Levels and Curves work wonders at sorting some of the blandness.   (I wasn't trying for a wet-on-wet look.)  Don't think Monet will have any competition!
