  1. Crashing when - with a particular file? Created in Affinity Photo or imported? Using a particular feature?
  2. Not a problem! I can recommend the free on-line tool ezgif at https://ezgif.com/maker 1. Just create your different "frames" in Affinity, 2. Save in one of these formats: GIF / JPG / PNG / APNG / HEIC / MNG / FLIF / AVIF / WebP or other images, up to 2000 files. Max file size 6MB each or 100MB in total. 3. Upload multiple files or upload .zip archive with images via https://ezgif.com/maker. 4. Download the resulting animated .gif file.. Works like a charm! 😊
  3. That surprised me, too. But it is just different and slightly unexpected. I have learned to live with it. Just one extra mouse click. 🙂
  4. The Preset is already defined as without bleed. Consequently, when you change any setting, you need to choose More and save your own preset that includes bleed.
  5. Paste Style only pastes the style of objects, not of text. Text uses Text Styles, although I, too, have often wished to be able to copy and paste the style of text...
  6. Thanks for the explanation, fde101, you really nailed it! That also gave the here-and-now solution which is to reinstall a pin to the errant picture. A big thanks! Nils
  7. Or - as I have experienced on (too) many occasions: An item (usually a picture or a text box) is wrongly and discreetly sent to the master page without being visible or editable via the master page. It is only visible below a master page in the Pages panel. The only solution (until the bug is fixed!) is to right-click (on the Pages panel) on the Master page and chosing "Edit detached". The bug is still present in the latest Beta (...499), at least with documents originating in the retail version.
  8. Excellent! Thanks for sharing! :-)
  9. Or - even easier- simply type in 2 mm, 4 mm or whatever instead of "0 px" shown below. It will automatically be translated into pt.
  10. I have opened your vector file which looks fine. Exported as PDF which also looks perfect...
  11. That was new to me. Thank you, although I will be hoping for an even better solution...
  12. Unfortunately, the text insertion cursor is still all but invisible i Publisher.
  13. Thanks, Serif! Obviously you have not had time for summer holidays... :-)
  14. The filler text had me confused at first as it could not be formatted or changed, but there is a very useful option in Edit - Preferences - General - Insert filler text as text. Then filler text can be formatted, reduced or treated like any other ordinary text.
