  1. I think that might be my only option. Thanks John
  2. Thanks for taking the time to reply Alfred. Any other suggestions anyone?
  3. Hi everyone, Does anyone here have any idea about the best way to shrink down a large file (.jpg or .png) to thumbnail size maximising the possible quality? The file will be text and vectors only so this must be possible? For example; a file size such as the book cover template below, to be reduced to 350 x522ish pixels and 200 x 300ish pixels. Thanks in advance ... EDIT: I forgot to mention that it will be only the front cover section that I need to shrink down.
  4. Thanks Tomeric. I was looking for the option under the paragraph tab. It seems the 'character tab' options delete the paragraph styles too - that could lead to problems at some point I guess.
  5. I'd like to find a way to remove the default paragraph styles - particularly unused styles - in Affinity Publisher. Is this possible? I prefer to create my own. Thanks in advance.
  6. Thanks Sean. That did the trick!
  7. Suddenly I can't find the snapping tools on the toolbar. Looked at the customise options but no snapping available to drag up there? Any ideas?

    Brilliant. Thanks for that. It will take a while to take it all in ;)
  10. Well apparently a lot more than anyone else.
  11. Actually, I agree with GRH. When putting a large book together, as I am, good organisation of the chapters is essential. Affinity themselves used the book feature in PagePlus to put their work books together, so I'm surprised they have not paid attention to this important part of a DTP. Putting all our eggs in one basket, as the old adage goes, is never a good idea.
  12. Publisher definitely needs the book function. It would be very difficult for me to manage one of my books as one file, especially as it's illustrated. I have to say that I am a bit disappointed with the program at the moment as it seems to me that it's better suited for flyers and leaflets - at best a short magazine.
