  1. @Pšenda: You're trying to be funny, aren't you?!
  2. Until there is a better way, I suggest the following workaround: Copy the icon you have already pasted on an artboard (Ctrl+C). Zoom out the workspace until you see all the artboards at once (Ctrl+Scroll wheel). Select each artboard in turn (click on the artboard name) and paste the copied symbol in each case (Ctrl+V). Then double-click the thumbnail of an artboard layer in the Layers panel to return its contents to normal size.
  3. ... Perhaps to protect the user from himself. This behaviour during standard insertion is not unusual. For congruent pasting, however, there should be an additional specialised command (for example, "paste to original position"). Unfortunately, there is no such command yet - neither in Affinity Designer nor in Affinity Publisher.
  4. It looks like copied elements are placed properly only when the artboard is in focus. As soon as the artboard in question is outside, the elements are pasted centered in the visible area. I don't know if this is intentional, but it seems to make some sense. Just out of curiosity: Why are you inserting something in a place you can't see?
  5. I can confirm the problem. And it only affects this one blend mode. I could maybe imagine something unexpected happening on an empty layer with this mode. But, that nothing happens at all amazes me. By the way, if you use only one layer, it shouldn't matter which of the three possible sources you set. But if you set the source to "layers below", nothing happens - in any of the blend modes. This is also strange.
  6. Thanks @DWright! But that was not an improvement request. Instead, I was reporting an error. The "Trimetric Right" grid type (as opposed to "Trimetric Left") is not behaving as expected. It's nothing earth-shattering and you can work with it, but it is confusing.
  7. With the grid type "Trimetric right", the orientation of the current projection plane does not match the graphic representation in the "Isometric" panel. Front view and side view are interchanged.
  8. Thanks for the info and the workaround, @Pauls ! In my case, the app already crashes before opening the document. For this reason, only the last method works for me. However, it does not work with another directory, but only on another computer. Apparently, the problem also exists when embedded elements, because the programme remembers the former links. It looks like the problem is not yet fixed in today's beta (, although it sounds like it in the list of fixed bugs.
  9. I can confirm that there seem to be problems with older documents. The app crashes for me when I try to open documents from 2019. Publisher closes before any of the documents are opened. They were created on the same computer at the time, and they are very simply designed. Unfortunately, I am not allowed to upload the documents.
  10. Hello @carl123 - Thank you! This option was not active in the release. I was no longer aware that there was an option for this in the beta. I thought it was the default behaviour, which I would prefer. But now it works 🙂
  11. I always wonder why things that work in the beta no longer work in the release version. In Beta 1.10, a small picture was displayed at a size of 100 per cent when opened. In the release 1.10, however, such images are fitted into the entire window again. So you have to zoom down the image first to avoid seeing a pixelated image.
  12. Thank you very much @MickRose! That makes sense and I had not thought of it. It is a small crossmedia document that I got and had a few issues with. I see that it is not in CMYK, which I had assumed. After converting I can see the K button again 🙂
  13. I remember that there used to be a button in the context bar called "K" or "Black". Since some black and white images appeared in color after PDF conversion, I looked for this button but could not find it. Did I miss something? Has this function been changed?
  14. Hello @Joachim_L I can confirm that. But I don't know if that is intentional. You get the same result if you manually crop the layer with a rectangle. In my case, another reason for rasterizing is given: Supposedly the placed PDF version is not compatible with the PDF export version - even if both are the same. Is this also the case for you?
  15. I have also experienced that tables of contents lose their formatting after updating. However, the new formatting is not the default formatting, but something different each time. I suspect it is formatting that I last used when working in the document. I have found the following workaround for me: Before I update the table of contents, I deselect everything and reset to the default values . Only then do I update the table of contents. However, I can't imagine that this is the way it's supposed to be. Nevertheless, strange things happen all the time. For example, the fill characters between the entry and the page number disappear when I update. Only when I click on the corresponding text style do they reappear. Or entries before the table of contents are integrated into the table of contents, although the corresponding option is not active. So at the moment this is still a rather shaky affair.
  16. I had already written it in another place: I suggest to set this option as default. What is the point of having a small image enlarged to the entire display area when it is opened? The first thing I always have to do is zoom the image to 100%.
  17. I can confirm that only the first opened image is zoomed to 100%. Also, I suggest this option as a default option. What is the point of having a small image blown up to the entire display area? The first thing I always have to do is zoom the image to 100%.
  18. In order to exclude a false positive result, a PCR test must absolutely follow!!
  19. Linking live filter layers seems to work now. But there is no link icon in the corresponding layers. This is very irritating because linked layers are not identified as such. In adjustment layers, the link icon is displayed correctly.
  20. Ich vermute, es ist so gewollt. Symbole machen immer dasselbe. Du kannst aber ein Symbol im Symbol-Panel abtrennen , dann ist es allerdings kein Symbol mehr. Wenn Du hingegen die Synchronisation aufhebst , bleibt es ein Symbol und Du kannst die Symbolebenen separat ein- und ausblenden. Denke daran, die Synchronisation ist immer Eigenschafts-bezogen. Alles, was Du im nicht synchronisierten Zustand tust (z.B. ein- und ausblenden), kann später nicht mehr synchronisiert werden - alles Andere schon.
