  1. Actually they have announced that it is being discontinued.
  2. QuarkXPress can do that, so it's obviously not an unreasonable request: InDesign can do it too, but it looks like it creates one that requires Flash: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E_VCAiRcbdg
  3. That is not what those are for. The functionality you are looking for does not currently exist in Publisher. There is an existing thread requesting this:
  4. Once scripting support is added to the Affinity suite creating a script to do these exports from Publisher and generate those flipbook solutions might be a possibility.
  5. A quick Google search reveals one that looks like it requires a small amount of HTML coding: http://www.turnjs.com/ Note that I haven't tried it - that just came up in a quick search, but if there is one, there may be others...
  6. You can use separate tools to enter the equations then insert them as images into Publisher or other applications. I found Equation Maker for the Mac (https://equationmaker.hokuasoftware.com/) to be one that works for me; I know there are others out there for the Mac, and I would assume there are similar tools for Windows as well.

    Node Tool Curve Selection Accuracy

    If you are going to be doing a lot of selection within those, however, it might be worth taking a few minutes to put them in a sensible order and maybe assign names to them to make them easier to recognize (you can name individual layers to make them easier to find in the list).
  8. Currently Publisher does not support objects on master pages having distinct content on the individual document pages. If you are trying to add text to a text box that was created on a master, it is adding the text to the master and thus it is being shared with all of the other pages. While there is a workaround that is kind of a hack (turn off "sync" in the Symbols palette before editing the object on the page), a "correct" fix for this will be coming later.
  9. Not enough information here to even guess at the faded appearance, but note that Publisher does not currently support hyperlinks.
  10. In other software, there can be more than one character style applied at the same time. Based on this discussion it is sounding like this is not the case for Affinity Publisher - I will need to experiment with that a bit when time permits.
  11. Set up the document as A5, duplicate the page after it is completed, when printing set the page size to A4 and use the tiled printing mode.

    Perspective Transforms?

    If you need a solution for this while waiting for this to show up in Designer and you do not already have a program that will do it, you might want to check out Art Text - it is inexpensive and you can use it to shape text then save the output as a (raster) image that you can then bring into the Affinity products. https://text.design/art-text/ Note that link is for the Mac version - I think an older version of it (version 2 as opposed to 3) is available for Windows if you search around that site for it a bit. That said, it will obviously be much nicer when we can do these things from right inside of Affinity Designer, but if you need something in the interim, that is one potential option that is out there.
  13. Their system clock could be set incorrectly, or to a foreign calendar (someone had something like this happen when using a Japanese system calendar a while back) as some examples.
  14. Correct, and that is how it is now. You can set custom page sizes when creating a document or adjust them in Spread Setup later. When creating the document you can save custom sizes as user presets. The size in the printer driver is used when you are printing it yourself, and determines the size of paper that is loaded into the printer; it would not necessarily be relevant when you are sending it to a professional print shop. Correct, and this has already been requested several times on the forum:
  15. Those are practical / ease-of-use features, not really functional ones (other than the presets). I do most of these types of basic "global" adjustments in the software which I use to catalog my photos (and develop the RAW files) so I have less need for them in Affinity Photo than would someone who is doing the entire process in Photo, and the screen real-estate that it takes up in Photo I would rather use for other things. While I do like having access to the adjustment layers when I need them, the popup menu in the layers palette is sufficient for my purposes. If you are doing the entire process in Affinity Photo then that is a somewhat different story (it is a bug regardless, and fixing all bugs should always take priority over adding any new features to anything, I was just curious as to how many people actually made heavy use of this panel - obviously there are some who do; it doesn't really help me much because of how I work with my photos).
