  1. Hello @HANDJOJO, this is a feature that is currently only available in the latest beta versions. There you can set a bleed color in the spread setup window. For the release version you have to wait for it. Cheers, d.
  2. I think 'object styles' would be indeed a good idea (as you brought up) 🙂 d.
  3. For some reason I interpreted 'style sheets' as text styles. This happened perhaps because I do not make much use of styles because I find them a little limited in the current implementation. I mean in regard to the missing feature to update them. d.
  4. Hi @uneMule, now I understand, thanks for the explanation. You are looking for an additional way to organize styles. I can see that this may be of value in larger projects as you explain. Let's see if Serif is picking this up. Cheers, d.
  5. Well, I don't see there a 'lack of detail' 😉 I think you sum your ideas up very well on how this could work. At first sight I do not see anything that I think needs to be added. It is a good take on making a complex think manageable. Your way to build this according to other applications helps (at least me) to easily understand on how to operate this. Let's see what others have to say. Cheers, d
  6. Hi @MikeK36, I think the idea is to use the Export Persona for this use case 🙂 d.
  7. One important aspect of this enhanced search and filter capability is - and I am sure you are aware of it - that it is (only) usefull in rather complex documents. And I would think it would help with documents created in different applications with a rather convoluted output so that things can get better organised and then worked on. We've seen examples on the forum like technical and architectural drawings, maps, perhaps even sewing patterns. Even not directly part of this discussion it seems to me that some import formats could build a 'bridge' to import such complex data. The many times requested DXF format comes to mind 😉 I'm not sure if vector artists would benefit of such a search, but who knows? d.
  8. Hello @uneMule, there are three types of styles: paragraph, character and groups. What are you missing? d.
  9. Hi @Mithferion, in lack of any other feedback so far I want to thank you for your effort to put this all together. I read it with great interest because I think a clever search feature could enchance AD tremendously. I'm not saying that the recent implementation is wrong or anything. It is a good starting point and will serve many users already. It is a big step forward. I think the challenge is to find the right balance between sophistication and usefullness 🙂 Cheers, d.
  10. Hello @Karyn56 and welcome the forum. I am very confident that you would be able to make posters and flyers and signs with the Affinity programs. They are made for this. You just have to investigate beforehand if they fit your workflow. There are three different programs: Affinty Photo is for image manipulation and comparable, while not similar, to Photoshop. Affintiy Designer is a vector illustration software and would be better suited for design of flyers and posters. And there is Affinity Publisher which has a strong emphasis on print production. If you own all three of them they are very closely integrated and you could e.g. work in Publisher and switch easily to edit images or to edit vector art. It really depends on how you organise and prefer your workflow. There are two (if not more) options to find out if the software is for you. Firstly there are a lot of video tutorials that give a first impression on how things work. You find the here: https://affinity.serif.com/en-us/learn/ Secondly you can download free trials (I think for 10 days) so that you can try and see on your own. You find links to the trial versions at the bottom of each product page over there: https://affinity.serif.com/en-us/ I think if you are mainly working in Photoshop you should find your way around in Affinity Photo quickly. One important aspect to check out beforehand is also on how you continue to use your work you already have. While Photoshop files can be opened chances are that on more elaborate designs you perhaps have to readjust things. It all depends on the actual files. I wish you good luck exploring the Affinties 🙂 d.
  11. Thank you @MrDavidW, to get to this stage of the layout you must have done several steps before APub stops working. Can you tell what was the last thing you did before you saw this? d.
  12. Hello @MrDavidW, can you please be a bit more specific about the cause for the crashes. The way you post it does not help the developers to solve anything of what you experience. Also, if you can provide a step by step instruction on what to do to make the program crash others can try the same and perhaps confirm it. This also is a good practice to find the cause of a crash. Cheers, d.
  13. Once we have 'convert selection to curves' this would be possible. But I see certain problems if a selection is not a sharp line... Back to topic: @Boldlinedesign's task can not be achieved automatically, yet. One could use a copy of the object and with the Node Tool delete all nodes that are not part of the inner ring. The result is a vectorobject than then can be filled. d.
  14. Hi @Gabe, now that you mention it I took a closer look at the colors sampled from the document. Indeed they are a little bit off. Good to know that you have it on your list already 🙂 d.
