  1. Yes, that is a problem, but it won't be fixed until Affinity adds hyperlinks to AFPub, so I have no alternative and that is sad.
  2. Thanks for the heads up on this one. This is an acceptable solution until AFPub has a built-in hyperlink tool, which will make things much easier. I did purchase it, and I got another 10% using the promo code that was sent to me. The way to make that work is to put the app in the cart, enter your email address, select Paypal and continue, then go back and wait for the promo code email to arrive, then go back again, apply the code, and buy it. Sounds more complicated than it is. FYI... It is a bit convoluted buying this app through deals.x. Copy and save your activation code. You will need that again when you open the app since what you get in the download is a trial version. You apply your code there and then it's the full version.
  3. You guys are in the minority. So are you suggesting that hyperlinks are not necessary in AFPub? I doubt that.
  4. I know you are joking, but really, print is dying to the point where I say it's dead. When's the last time you read a "paper" newspaper or magazine. It's been years for me. When the last time you wrote a check? For some people, printed books are important, but mine are all digital. My feeling is that for Affinity to focus on the print world is looking backwards. I need AFPub to produce my PDF woodworking plans. I need hyperlinks now not some years from now. Perform a search here in the beta forum for "Hyperlink." Lots of people see it as a very important part of a (this) publishing app.
  5. Found it! Layers Panel, then delete using the trash can at the bottom right of the panel.
  6. I've had more troubles this morning with broken links. I hope this gets made better in future releases. I'm seeing duplicated files in my linked folders. They have numbers added at the end of to the names.
  7. Great news. It's quite a goofy mess as it is now. I just had some come in so tiny I could hardly see them!
  8. Looks Like I found the solution. The key is not to have the file open when you change the folder's name in the finder. Then when you open the file AFPub asks where the resources are. Select one in the correct folder, all in that folder relink.
  9. I see the benefits of linked files verses embedded files. All is good until I change the parent folder's name in the finder, then the links break. I don't see a simple way to batch relink them. Is there a way?
  10. I just did a test and now I have no idea why some come in small. I exported the design layer, it imports in full size. I exported the sheet layer at the same scale, it imports in full size. I exported the sheet layer and changed the scale, it imports in full size. DL PDF Export.pdf SL PDF Export.pdf SL 1:2 Scale PDF Export.pdf
  11. To reiterate, this was broken in the past, fixed, and now broken again. I'm creating my PDFs in Vectorworks 2019. It appears that PDFs created from Vectorworks design layers import the correct size, and PDFs created from Vectorworks viewports import 1/4 size. Scale of the Vectorworks drawing has no relevance.
  12. I did more testing. I was able to get one to come in full size, but not others. Here's one (attached) for you to try. It should import 8-1/2" wide, but it does not. Support Holes Step 1.pdf
  13. Placing PDFs is broken again in this release. They are inserted small. This was happening two versions ago, then it was fixed, now it's broken again. My temporary fix is to resize them to 8.5" W in the transform studio. Remember to set the H and W to be linked so they scale together.
