    Affinity Designer for Windows - 1.7.0

    Congratulations for the new great release! oh ....: "There is currently new free content available to claim in the Welcome Screen" damn, I will have to wait until tomorrow what this is teasing
  2. OK I see it ("New from Clipboard") should be back in File menu for at least the other personas, as you should be able to configure your shortcuts for every persona from here Layout = Publisher Vector = Designer ...
  3. Maybe you copy objects and want to paste it as new publisher document. Additionally if you switch inside Publisher to Photo or Designer, you might want it back again
  4. Yes I had reported once the same feeling. For me it is scrolling very "slowly". And no support for Middle-Mouse-fast-scrolling Mouse: Logitech G602 Windows 10 1803 publisher_scroll_vid2.avi
  5. Hmmm for me there have been different filenames depending where it came from (not that it would be important) https://affinity.store/de/update/windows/publisher-beta/1/ was linked to: https://....cloudfront.net/windows/publisher-beta/1.7.0/affinity-publisher-beta-
  6. One thing that would be great to have: I have a Template Document that would often be reused and filled with different data in specific fields. So if I have placeholders in the document (variables) and could then use the command line + a document with the data to fill in (ini-style, json or xml or whatever can be automatically generated), that then would automatically export the document as new PDF would be great: publisher.exe "D:\Affinity Documents\template1.afpub" /fillvars "D:\Data\NewData.json" /exportpdf "D:\Affinity Output\NewDoc.pdf"
  7. Just as a Workaround, what you can do is: Create a new Shortcut to publisher.exe (on your Desktop for example) append the path to the template document (wrapped in quotes if path contains spaces) Example: "C:\Program Files\Affinity\Publisher Public Beta\Publisher.exe" "D:\Affinity Documents\Template1_Simple.afpub" (funny thing, this reproducibly instantly crashes my Virtual Maschine in VMware Workstation 12, some GPU SVGA crash, and yes I know, totally unsupported as VM)
  8. You can do it in the "Spread Setup" (or "Spread Properties" in Page context menu), but be aware, there is currently a Bug (I already reported), you have to fill out the Type + Page Preset manually again:
  9. Yes indeed, a complete new empty document is not asking for confirmation. I am not sure if it did when I wrote this ... but I cannot reproduce it. But the real problem was more the missing confirmation for the new document from clipboard, that does atleast contain the stuff that was in the clipboard, so one could argue that it is modified, and maybe someone already has something new in the clipboard, and would loose the "important" stuff that was in the document when closing without confirmation to save.
  10. Just found the solution for one of the problems here from MikeW: POST "Right-click in it and choose expand. It's a variable. You can also insert it as text instead of a variable and even add your own text to insert in Preferences. "

    Text frames

    You're welcome, happy to help
  12. I have created a simple document with linked text frames and filled it with the filler text. Added some paragraph settings etc and I now cannot select text elements anymore. Only the full text. I can start typing and it will add characters at the start of the text. If I click the right arrow on the keybord to go to the next character position it jumps to the end of the full text. Template1_Simple_edit_text_not_working_not_selectable.afpub And if the text is selected it doesn't highlight all text elements (see screenshot.)
