  1. Hi @BluestarCK, as you may have noticed by posting in this thread there is a plan to come up with a digital asset management software at some point. But you won't hear anything more detailed from Serif before they are ready to start a public beta (as they did before). The latest comment on the topic is from just a couple of hours ago: d.

    Hello @sammyd, the help is included with APub (look for the menu 'Help > Affinity Publisher Help'). It is also available online at https://affinity.help/publisher/en-US.lproj/index.html BTW, you posted this in the Affinity Designer forum. It would be better to use the Affinity Publisher forum over here: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/forum/65-feedback-for-affinity-publisher-on-desktop/ or in the general questions forum here: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/forum/5-affinity-on-desktop-questions-mac-and-windows/ Cheers, d.
  3. Hi @Scazzino, I downloaded your file and followed your instructions. I can confirm that the exposure adjestment layer reverts to 0 once the symbol is detached. It perhaps would be better to post all of this in the bug reports forum over here. This is where developers and moderators look for bug reports. Maybe a moderator can move this post? Cheers, d.
  4. Hello @Bazz, the language and the colour of text are not properties of the text frame. They are properties of a paragraph style (or text style). This means there is no need to change the language or colour on the master page. You'de rather change it in the text styles panel ('View > Studio > Text styles). d.
  5. Another footnote: it does a good job at 'Affinitätsunterstützung' Seriously, how would Google Translate tell that Affinity is a brand name? Surprisingly it stays with Affinity Photo at the top right... d.
  6. I recommend to keep a couple of install files on your hard drive until you are sure you won't need them anymore. To offer different versions online may cause confusion and may cause more support requests. d.
  7. Or to use its outline if it does not have a fill nor a stroke. Even though outline view is not available in APub the outline must be part of the object. d.
  8. Good to hear that you found another way to solve the shortcoming of the page size limit d.
  9. Glad to see another user of Postbox. I'm very happy with it as my email client for several years now. d.
  10. Hello @tudor, another option that works (I tried this time ) is to use one artboard the size of your design. Then place transparent rectangles on top of the design with the indiviual sizes to export. You can lock these to not interfere during designing. Then you select one rectangle after the other (in the layers studio) an use 'File > Export'. Make sure to choose 'Area > Selection with background'. This creates segments of your design just not using artboards. I do not say your request to span objects across multiple artboards is not a valid feature request. It's just not working right now and slices in Export Persona and my method above do d.
  11. You are right. I was under the impression that stacked artboards include elements from artboards below on export. But this is not the case. I think @selcukyilmaz's suggestion with multiple slices across one big artboard should do the job. d.
  12. Hi @JeffreyWalther, you can set this as an option in ''Preferences > Tools > Move Tool Aspect Constrain'. From the drop down select 'Constrain by default'. d.
  13. Hello @tudor, would it work to use multiple artboards? You could have one artboard with the full size of your design on which you place all your objects. On top of that you could place and distribute artboards of the sizes you need to export the single segments. In the export persona you can select just to export the segment artboards. I think these will include the elements from the (big) artboard below. d.
  14. Hi @BBCAT, you could place printable objects at the places where the rulers are. It takes a little effort to build a grid this way but you could save it as an asset to reuse it later. Cheers, d.
  15. You can set defaults for text and other elements. search the help for ‚Object defaults‘. Does this work for you. d.
  16. Hi @Randall Lee Reetz, there is no such thing as labels or meta data fields. There are layer names and color labels, though. But no enhanced searching capability for these. This was mentioned a while ago in the context of master layers in Affinity Publisher some time ago (I cannot remember exactly when). I very much support this feature request. Cheers, d.
  17. That is an interesting advice. I‘ll take that into account for the next time. Thanks. d.
  18. Hi @gafvert, I haven‘t seen any indication from the team‘s side that it is being worked on. At least I assume they are aware of this shortcoming. d.
  19. Hello @BAK UI-SEOK, welcome to the forum. The grid and the guides are design aides and not design elements. Thus they cannot be exported. If you have to design something that includes these aides on export you have to find a way to do this on your own. I have two suggestions: Create a grid on your own with vector lines, spacing and color according to the grid or a design that suits your project better. Create an empty document, setup the grid and rulers and make screenshot. Place this as an image in the background of your project. Both ways will include the grid in the exported file. You also can save either of the grid objects as assets for later use. I personally do not think to make grids and rulers optionally exportable (or) printable. But it may be worth to make it a feature suggestion d.
  20. What you can do is ALT+click on the nested layer. This makes it visible in it's entiety. The drawback is that this turns of every other layer so you'll not see the context. I assume this is not what you are asking? d.
  21. There is a right click option to 'Show in layers panel'. I'm not sure if this works for artboards. I'm not at the Affinity computer right now. d.
  22. At least it works I wouldn't know a built in keyboard shortcut, though. The navigator panel has the feature of custom view points (see help here: https://affinity.help/designer/en-US.lproj/pages/Panels/navigatorPanel.html). You could set up two of these to switch between the artboards. According to the help you can assign keyboard shortcuts to view points. d.
  23. Would double clicking on the artboard in the layers panel work? d.
  24. After reading this post about 'relative transforms' and the possibility to do this in the transform panel with mathematic expressions I want to suggest to add to the transform panel a checkbox to duplicate an object with the transform. There also could be a key combination like ALT+ENTER to invoke this. Of course I know how to duplicate objects by CTRL+dragging with the mouse. My suggestion could be helpful with more precise design operations. I think I posted this some time ago already. Bring over the small calculator input devices from the iPad versions to indicate that mathematical expressions are available at all. d.
  25. This is correct and more the Affinity way. I hae those transform commands in AI in mind that pop up a message box where you can enter values and check the 'create copy' option. It might be familiar to users switching from Adobe (and we know there are quite some ) to have such a checkbox in sight. d.
