  1. Notice page numbers 106 and 144 is showing with no entry. They should not even be there because my sections are correct as far as I know.
  2. Hi again Walt, I just made a minor adjustment to the headings of one or two of my chapters, but still the two gaps with page numbers are present in the TOC. Here is a screen shot of my whole UI
  3. Hi there Walt, Thanks very much for your reply. I thought to take a screen shot of the problem that I am having. Maybe you can make something out of this.
  4. I had exactly the same issues running Mojave which affected ADesigner but not Photo. I also noticed that not only was the Affinity apps affected, but some others from other developers too. I used the method above to fix the issue. I also cannot upgrade to Big Sur because I have some apps that are still 32 bit and won't work. Apple need to pull finger to sort this Mojave and App Store situation out.
  5. Hi there, I think I've found a bug in Affinity Publisher's Table of Contents process. After compiling sections with only Heading 1 entries in a book that I am laying out, when running the Table of Contents it adds a couple of blank spaces in between entries. I'm not sure why this is happening, but I found this out today in Version 1.9.1.
  6. Hi there, The other day when this problem happened, I was creating a video tutorial on how to lay out a book in Publisher. I was using Filler Text and had created all the text styles needed. Today I tried the same thing again to recreate the problem and now it just doesn't do it again, so I just don't know what happened to have done what I reported. I am not using the new Beta version of Publisher, but the latest Publisher update, 1.8.6 If the problem happens again, I will certainly try and record my screen again. Thanks so much for your reply though. Regards, Rory Mole
  7. Hi there, I've encountered a problem with the latest version of Publisher. When creating sections and telling section manager to start a section on a certain page that's ok, but when I go to start the next section, section manager changes the page number of the previous section automatically and assigns it's own page to start the next section on even after I correct the page numbering.
  8. Hi there, I am using the latest updated Mac version of Affinity Publisher which I purchased through the affinity store because I was part of the beta testing community. I am compiling a book mostly of text compiled as a multipage spread. I first place a word document and flow the text across multiple pages. After the text has been placed, there are some corrections to be made and while inserting inverted commas at the end of a sentence, the cursor jumps to a completely different page. That's it. Regards, Rory Mole
  9. Hi there to you all, Firstly, I am sorry if this topic has been covered in these forums. I did a search to find the answer to my question before posting. I am laying out a long book for a client. Her manuscript has been written in MS Word and saved as a .docs file. The document contains about 35000 words. I am wanting to place the text into Affinity Publisher without having to create 250 pages first and dragging out text boxes. When I place the document in the first Publisher page within APublisher, how would I be able to have the text "flow" onto other pages below without having to
  10. Thanks very much Garrettm30 for clearing up this little bit of confusion.
  11. Hi there Petar, I'm not sure what is happening here about my comment, but I hope you understand the need to import Microsoft Word files into Publisher which have footnotes applied to them by authors. Publisher can "Place" Microsoft Word files into a Publisher document, but with limitations. One of the big limitations is that Publisher does not support footnotes and endnotes at the moment, therefore any footnotes or endnotes that an MS Word document has in it will not be applied to the Publisher document when they are "Placed". This feature needs to be added to Publisher. Try telling
  12. The reason for the importing of footnotes and endnotes from Microsoft word documents is this: I layout academic books for clients who put their own footnotes into Microsoft word which is their writing software of choice for their manuscript. When I layout their book in a layout program such as Affinity Publisher, I want to have the ability to "place" or "import" their manuscripts which contain lots of footnotes and/or endnotes. I do not want to have to manually add 500+ footnotes into their sentences of text on pages in Affinity Publisher. Adobe InDesign has this ability and I am wanting
  13. I think someone has asked for the following concerning footnotes and endnotes. The ability to import footnotes and endnotes in Microsoft Word files. The ability to format footnotes in the footer section of the document. What I mean is fully format the text, spacing, etc. It would be so good if the Affinity Development Team makes this available soon.
  14. What I would like to see in AP is the ability to add text frames automatically when a page is created. There should be an ability to apply this or to not apply this. It would save a lot of hassle when copy and pasting text.
  15. Hi there to you all, Thanks so much for your efforts to bring us Affinity Publisher. It's very much appreciated. For the purpose of automation, I am setting up a document as a spread with a number of pages for a book. I have successfully set up Master Page A with running headers at the top on both sides and page numbers in the "footer" section in the centre of both facing pages. I want the first page of every chapter to start on the right hand side which is what AP is able to do very well. I have created a new single Master Page and called it B. I am trying to have a decorative glyp
  16. Hi there MEB, Thanks for your response. This is what I do normally.... I make sure I have the move tool selected I then click on the layer that has the has already got "layer effects" (fx) applied to it. I then click on the fx icon on the right hand side of the layer and the layer effects pop up menu opens. I then try and select one of the effects on the left that are already applied, but cannot select any of them. I can only tick the check box on the left to on or off, but can't actually select that effect. This happens after I have worked on the
  17. Hi there to all you experts..... I've been using AP and AD for quite a long time and have designed quite a few book covers. I have a problem with editing an existing text layer that has effects applied to it such as 3d, outer glow and gradient overlay. I've applied the effects to the layer and then when I come back to it and open up the effects by clicking on the little fx icon on the right hand side, I can access the fly out that pops up, but when I try to select the actual effect within the fly out, I cannot. This happens randomly from time to time and I wondered if this is probably
  18. Hi there Przemo, I did a test book cover with 3 art boards, Front Cover, Back Cover and Spine. I made sure that the sizes had 5mm bleed area. I then made another rectangle on top of the 3 art boards with no fill or stroke. This rectangle I made into it's own layer. I then grouped the 3 art boards under the new rectangle layer. The rectangle layer is the same size as all the three art boards combined. See screen shot. I then went into the export persona. I went to the layer section in export persona and saw the "rectangle layer". I selected it and created a slice, I th
  19. Hi there Przemo, There is a good video on Art Boards, bleed and exporting. Check it out.
  20. Hi there, I've got Affinity Photo installed on my MacBook Pro with OS High Sierra 10.13.2. When opening Affinity Photo and then trying to set up preferences, the who program shuts down unexpectedly. Is this a bug or something wrong. I also have Topaz Plugins installed and pointing to the right place within preferences which I did quite some time ago, but today, I encountered this problem. Has anyone else encountered this problem and is there a solution? Thanks
  21. Hi there to you guys, I've spent a couple of days looking into various options concerning showing bleed marks in the exported/slices option in export persona. I've been designing my book covers in AD using 3 Art Boards in the same document. Obviously there is an artboard for the "Front Cover" then another for the "Spine" and lastly one for the "Back Cover". Here is the procedure that I've followed to have the bleed visible in the exported pdf document of the book cover as one document. Seeing I'm creating my book cover to a trim size of A5 which is 148mm x 210mm, I create
  22. Hi there, Ok, I see hiding the dock actually works. I thought that maximizing my screen size would help, but not. Thanks for your suggestion. Regards.....
  23. Hi there, I just bought Affinity Designer through the App Store, Version 1.5.4 While following one of the beginners video tutorials, where selecting the tear tool was instructed from the teacher, I could not select either with my mouse or with My Macbook Air's Trackpad. I was also not able to select the heart tool. Thanks for a great app though. Many thanks for your help. Rory Mole
