    It sure does! All working now, many thanks! (note to the UI team: not the most obvious feature...)

    dominik got a reaction from jc4d in A way to trim canvas to objects, please   
    Hi @Stokestack,
    would 'Create Artboard' work for you? You can insert an artboard of the size of the selected object (see the dropdown on the toolbar). This basically sets the canvas and artboard the same size.

    Hi Dominik,

    Thanks for letting us know! This should be fixed in the next beta!

    Thanks. Alignment should be disabled if a stroke has Arrowheads, but also should be re-enabled if they are removed. I’ve brought this to he attention of the ‘Arrowheads Department’.

    Probably best, @BowmanSC, not to post your email address here. You and @dominik can exchange that kind of sensitive information via the forum's private message facility.

    dominik got a reaction from jmwellborn in Inline Graphics & Anchors to objects   
    I used the word 'poll' because this is what I have not observed. I am not sure if they ever explicitly asked users for what they need because I am not around long enough (thinking of it that way there may have been a poll before I joined the forum that I don't know of ).
    The existence of the forum and this particular section can be interpreted as proof for an interest by Serif into what Affinity users are requesting, thinking and doing with the software(s).
    I, for myself, have decided to use the software in a way that uses the features available. If I need something that is not (yet) there I try to use something else. Your mileage may vary.
    Cheers,

    From what I observed over time Serif never did a poll like this. I know they are monitoring this forum and take notes of what get's requested.
    I cannot imagine that they are not aware of the lack of anchored objects and they must have good reasons that this is not available, yet. And I am sure they don't do this in order to tease their users

    APub has not even started yet. We are in the period of pre release and the feature set is not finished yet. We've been allowed to take a sneak peak knowing that the application is not finished. So there is no indication that these features are not planned for the first release.

    Hi @BowmanSC,
    sorry to hear that this doesn't work for you.
    Here's the other spreads. I just went through the document and 'Saved as...'. You most likely have to do some recovery work. But I think the artwork is OK.
    Please let me know if you can recover your file with all of this.
    Cheers,

    Hi Dominik, ich bin da zu 100% bei dir. Ich mache es Serif auch nicht zum Vorwurf. Die Wahrscheinlichkeit einer späteren Implementierung ist sehr hoch, gerne auch mit einer eigenen Persona. Und bis es soweit ist, gibt es diverse Workarounds, wie du ja bereits beschrieben hast.

    Hello Dominik, I'm 100% with you. I do not criticize Serif. The probability of a later implementation is very high, even with an own persona. And until then there are different workarounds, as you have already described.

    Hi @Puck,
    ohne Zweifel ist die Druckvorschau für die professionelle Produktion wichtig. Ich glaube sogar so wichtig, daß für sie vielleicht in der Zukunft eine eigene sog. 'Persona' erscheinen wird. Das ist reine Spekulation meinerseits. Ich glaube, Serif versucht erst mal die grundlegenden Funktionen ordentlich zu machen um dann auf diesem Fundament das Programm Stück für Stück zu erweitern.
    Cheers,

    with no doubt print preview is important in a professional workflow. I would think this could be in the future part of a seperate 'Persona' in APub. I'm only guessing, here. From how I see it, Serif first tries to get the basic functionality right. And will then add further functionality piece by piece.

    Hello @Puck,
    no answer does not mean anything personal towards you. Sometimes questions just slip through or someone doesn't have an good answer for you.
    Overprint preview is not available, yet, nor individual colours. You might look into 'Adjustment layers > Soft Proof'. This is not the same but offers some possibilities.
    Here's an interesting article on this (in German): https://carsten-nichte.de/blog/proofing-mit-affinity-photo/

    dominik got a reaction from haakoo in Export embedded document   
    Back at the Affinity computer. Thanks for linking to your original post.
    I now can recall what I had in mind (and what worked for me in the past). I double clicked on an embedded document to open it in a new tab. Then I copied everything, pasted into a new document ('New From Clipboard') and saved under a new name.
    I did this more in a rescue situation than in a productive workflow. I admit this is a rather cumbersome way to export embedded for what the OP is asking. In this context this request does makes sense

    dominik reacted to MGBJAY in Affinity, we need clarification: are you or aren’t you working on a DAM?   
    Unfortunately ... due to the "proprietary" nature of the AFFINITY file format, NONE of the free applications you've mentioned, nor many of the available "pay-for-play" applications available, and many of which are very capable, DO NOT read the Affinity file format natively and are therefore not really suitable choices.
    SERIF really needs to step up to the plate and get their version of some form of DAM software published already. It is their lack of such that is forcing me to return to PHOTOSHOP 6 and LIGHTROOM 5.5. 
    Sure, they're a bit dated, but the quality of image enhancement is still high-quality and my need for the ability to manage a large library of images demands my attention in a format that I can rely on, and work with on a daily basis, without adding to an already busy workload.
    If you want the base to stay with you SERIF, get on the ball and get the software released already. The original $40.00 it cost to switch to AFFINITY is not enough to not abandon it in favour of having a solution that just works, end to end.
    SERIF ... WE ARE TIRED OF WAITING!

    dominik got a reaction from Chris J in Multiple fill: Undo does not work   
    Create a new document and add one vector object, e.g. a rectangle. Make sure 'Appearance Panel' is visible and click on 'Add Fill'. Assign the new fill some colour by clicking on the round icon. Right click on the under most fill and select 'Delete'. In History Panel step one undo back or hit CTRL+Z. Expected behaviour: the previously deleted fill is restored.
    Observed behaviour: the last fill in the list changes its fill to the colour of the deleted fill.
    I made a screen recording. I hope you can follow and recreate this.

    Hi @walt.farrell,
    this is getting interesting. I am able to access all pages from the Context toolbar. I even was able to go into edit pages and it opened the appropriate page.
    I then copied all content on a spread and created a new file via 'File > New From Clipboard' (there was a missing fonts message and the page size is limited to the outline of the objects on the page) but at least it seems all objects are recovered.
    I enclose the first three spreads. If @BowmanSC cannot recover the pages by himself according to what I have found I'd be glad to do the remaining pages, too

    Hello @BowmanSC,
    welcome to the forum.
    The APub document locked/crashed APub here as well the moment the message box about missing resourced popped up.
    But I was able to place the file into a blank AD file. I just created an A1 sized document and drag and dropped your file into it. That way its content is visible but in now way editable. See attached file.
    This will not give you access to your original design but perhaps it can help you to recreate it.

    dominik got a reaction from Alfred in reward for beta-testers and suggestion makers?   
    A beta version has to start out somewhere and it is part of this process that there will many bugs involved. To call this 'terrible' is beyond what I can understand.
    In contrary, APub was at its first public start equipped with a lot of features and - to me - showed that it is well thought out. And full of flaws and missing features, too. That's why it's an early beta.
    To me, the reward is being part of the process of improving things. I do not understand why you are asking for a discount.
