  1. 1. First, review the help page on creating assets. It appears you must create an asset in a subcategory, which means you must first go to the asset panel and create the subcategory. (I think you might have to have a document open to do this, but I am not sure). I know you need to have a document open for the next steps. 2. In a document, create a text box. Set the frame, border, font, and other characteristics. Then insert in the text box "Continued on page " followed by at least one line of space and then "Continued from Page ". When the text box is satisfactory, drag it to the asset subcategory you created in step 1. On the assets panel click on panel preferences and select embed in current document to make sure the asset is available in future documents. 3. To use the asset, in a document, drag it from the asset panel to the bottom of the first text frame in a set of overflowing text frames. Then shrink the text box so that only the first line (continued on page) is visible. 4. Using the overflow triangle (you may have to select the box and select zoom to selection to see the overflow triangle), click on the triangle and drag it to the top of the next frame in the set of overflowing frames. At this point you may have to adjust the size of each of the two frames occupied by the asset to make sure that everything displays properly. Sometimes I have had the frames act strangely and even, on occasion, the fonts have gotten messed up. 5. Once the two frames are adjusted to your liking, go to the first frame of the asset and after "page" insert a space an then using the text tab, select insert, select fields and select next frame page number. Move to the next frame in the asset and after "page" insert a space, and, using the text menu, select insert, select fields, and select previous frame page number. Hope that helps.
  2. I get the error shown in the attached every time I try to download tis file (or the equivalent Designer beta). Any idea what is causing it or how to correct?
  3. I have found a somewhat simpler solution. I created an asset which is a text box with BOTH the "continued on" and "continued from" lines. I add that asset at the bottom of the first frame of an article and shrink the box so that only the first line shows. I then create a link by dragging the overflow to the top of the next frame for the article and expand so that the second line of the asset shows. After that I insert the page numbers using the interactive insert fields command. I've attached a file where the technique is used. August 2020.afpub
  4. Apparently not. I still must log in to each account separately.
  5. I purchased Publisher, Designer and Photo all from the Affinity Store, but under two separate email addresses. Is there a way I can combine those two accounts into one?(No, I did not purchase anything from the Windows store; they are both Affinity Store accounts). Thanks
  6. If I follow correctly, create multiple rextangles, and add one text frame? Then group all three?
  7. Is it possible to create a multi-line border for a text frame?
  8. Here is a solution I use: 1. I created an asset consisting of a text box with two line of text: "continued on Page" and "continued from Page ". 2. Create text frames as needed, and link them so text flows through. 3. At the lower right corner just below the initial frame for a text, place the asset I created. 4. Create a link from the asset to a new very small text frame placed just above the upper left corner of the next frame with text. 5. Go back to the frame of the asset and shrink it vertically so that only one line of text (the "continued on Page" text) is displayed. 6. The second linked small frame will now show the second line of text in the asset ( "continued from Page") 7. In each of the two small frames insert the appropriate field (i.e., next frame or previous frame) 8. Resize each of the small frames to fit as needed.
  9. I've been using publisher for several months now. IN the earlier beta stages it was not as functional as PP. Now, the latest release beta, which is, I think, similar to the release candidate, is clearly superior to PP9. It still does NOT open PP files, I believe, so you would need to start a fresh file, but I can now do everything I could with PP 9, and more, as efficiently, if not more so. Len G Oregon
  10. Is it possible to set a default view or default zoom value. I like to do most of my work at a zoom level which displays full page width. Can I set some preference so that the template I would start from, or the document I create, will default to that zoom level?
  11. Thanks. The index page is there for Photo, but not for Publisher. Interestingly, the index page is also NOT there for Designer, but the help file opens when I press F! or click help in Designer.
  12. It just started about a week ago, after I downloaded the most recent Publisher Beta. (Now Designer help will come up, but not Photo or Publisher).
