    Hi,
    Further to my post suggesting the addition of a Cancel button to the MacBook Pro Touch Bar in Develop Persona:
    Thanks for implementing this feature so quickly! Unfortunately the new Cancel button in the Touch Bar doesn't work in the same way as the on-screen equivalent.
    If I open a RAW file, decide I don't want to proceed and click the on-screen Cancel button, I get the following dialog:

    Clicking Yes closes the RAW file without committing any edits.
    But if I click the Touch Bar Cancel button, I am switched immediately into Photo Persona, not committing any edits (not even those applied automatically by the Assistant), leaving me with an unprocessed file open on screen which I actually wanted to close.
    If I start in Photo Persona (say editing a .jpg) and switch to Develop Persona, then click either the on-screen or Touch Bar Cancel button, I'm switched back to Photo Persona without committing the Develop edits. This seems to be correct behaviour.
    It's the behaviour that occurs when using the Touch Bar button to Cancel an edit in Develop and close the RAW file without proceeding that doesn't work correctly. It's inconsistent with the behaviour of the on-screen button.
    Thanks!

    Hi @MEB
    The Cancel button is there, but unfortunately it doesn't work in the same way as the on-screen version. Clicking the Touch Bar version immediately switches me into Photo Persona without committing any changes made during the Develop session.
    I would expect it to ask for confirmation that I want to close my raw image without further processing, like the dialog I get when clicking the on-screen Cancel button:

     
    Should I file a bug in the Beta section?
    Cheers,

    Hi @Robert Williams and welcome to the forums!
    You shouldn't need two masters if you're working with spreads. Check your bleed settings in File - Document Setup: 

    You will need to click the chain icon to set different values. Set Inner to 0 and Outer, Top and Bottom to your bleed dimension: it should sort your binding edge on both left and right pages. 
    Here's my spread, extended to bleed:

    Test an export on a single page to PDF - I've exported a left, which bleeds to the left, top and bottom but only goes to the trim edge on the right:

    Without a link to the video it's hard to know what you're trying to follow, but this works for me:
    Flow in the text.
    Use the Place Image tool to choose and drop the image onto the page.
    Use the Move tool to resize the image and place it over the text frame in the position you want it.
    Do not select the text insertion point. Stick with the Move tool and keep the image selected.
    Pull down the Layer menu and choose Inline in Text.
    Your image layer should now be nested in the text frame layer, and will move as you edit the text.

    Running Catalina (10.15) I can see the blue borders in Light UI mode but not in Dark UI, which is what the OP was using:

    The light borders in Dark UI don't change when the tools are selected.

    h_d got a reaction from walt.farrell in How to select and delete parts of a document?   
    Affinity Publisher has no concept of 'chapters'. The nearest concept is Sections, which can be accessed from the Section Manager in the Pages panel.
    I'll stick my neck out here and say that if I were creating a full-sized book, I would break up the text into chapter-sized chunks in my writing program (word processor, Scrivener, whatever),before importing them separately into Publisher, possibly matching the chapters to the sections.
    That would give me chapter breaks based on page numbers, and if for any reason I wanted to delete a chapter of more from the Publisher document, I could select and delete the relevant pages en bloc from the Pages panel.
    The thought of managing a full-sized book as one continuous text flow gives me the absolute whim-whams.

    It does work after a fashion, @Dan C and @Cartoonjosh
    The iPhone has to be physically connected to the computer via USB (not wifi or Bluetooth) - and then you run the standalone Image Capture utility. It's in your Applications - Utilities folder.
    You may need to go through security, and then you'll get a display of the images on your phone. At the bottom of the Image Capture window, change the Import To pull-down to Affinity Photo, then click the Import button. The image will open in Affinity Photo.

    It's a bit of kludge I suppose and it would be fab if it worked through Affinity Photo's menu as well.
    (It would also be fab if the images displayed in Image Capture were slightly greater than microscopic in size grrrrrrrr.)

    Hi @GeekyGal and welcome to the forums! 😀
    You can't quite do that, but you can use guides. First pull down the View menu and make sure Show Guides and Show Rulers are enabled.
      
    You can then drag in editable, adjustable guides from the left ruler (vertical) and the topic ruler (horizontal).

    You can also use the Guides Manager and Snapping Manager to control how tools work with guides, adjust guides precisely and more.

    Hi Cartoonjosh
    The Acquire Image option is an Apple Framework which we connect to when displaying this dialog. As far as I can see from their documentation, this should work for any device that is detected in the 'Image Capture' Mac Utility - including scanners & iPhones.
    I've tested this here this morning and I'm seeing the same behaviour as h_d, scanners are detected and iPhones are not when using Acquire Image in Affinity. I believe this is a bug with the current version of Affinity, therefore I'll log this with our development team for further investigation now.
    Many thanks for your report!

    Hi @Chris B
    Sorry for the delayed reply, only just seen your post. 
    I'm afraid I'm still seeing the same behaviour with build .166
    It also affects vector masks created with shape tools (eg a rectangle). Below I've masked with a rectangle, I move the rectangle around and I have to zoom in and out to update the mask. I then convert the rectangle to a curve, modify the shape with the Node tool and then move the curve around. Again I have to zoom in and out:
