  1. @anon2 Thanks for your support - having a independent blur layer for each of my 19 chapters is my current solution.
  2. @anon2 Thank you for the file - but it cannot not displayed correctly on Affinity Designer or Affinity Designer beta - the blur effect is not applied - and Affinity Designer crashes if you open the Symbol Studio panel (in Designer Persona)
  3. @anon2 - Sorry, wrong wording - I've corrected the orginal posting - it seems that only Affinity (Designer) on Windows crashes.
  4. @anon2 thank you - I also think that the blend mode Passthrough should be available for Master Pages. Using a symbol does not work, because Affinity Publisher Crashes when you add a symbol containing an Gaussian Blur Layer to the symbol (see original posting).
  5. @walt.farrell Thank you for your answer - I want a kind of linked edit. And of course the blur can only apply to layers below. I've created a simple example to show my use case: I want to create a book with chapters - each chapter should have an image on a page itself and also use the same image on all further pages of the chapter as background, but modified in an uniform way. To be able to apply the modification in an uniform way I have created a master page "SaturationLighthness" which is included in all "Chapter X Background" master pages. So if I want to change the tint of the background I only have to modify the adjustment layer in the "SaturationLighthness" master page (this works now as expected) Now I want also apply a gaussian blur effect to all background images - but the gaussian blur layer does not work as expected - If you enable the visibility of the gaussian blur layer in the "SaturationLighthness" master page, the background image vanishes in all pages. template-blur.afpub
  6. Affinity Designer on Windows 10 Hi Everyone, I want to add the same Gaussian Blur Live Filter to multiple spreads - but to be able to modify the radius later. So I tried the same as with the Recolor Adjustment - create a Master Page, add a big white rectangle, set the layer mode to darken, add the Gaussian Blur Live Filter adjustment layer and group both and set the group to pass through. But this does not work as expected - it seems that the Gaussian Blur is applied only to the layers within the same Master Page The second idea is to add the Gaussian Layer to the symbol panel - but this crashes Affinity Designer on Windows: and Any ideas for a workaround? Thanks, Christian
  7. @anon2 Now I see the difference - adding a white rectangle solves also the bleed problem (adding a fill layer has the fill problem) Thanks a lot, Christian
  8. @Gabe I don't think that is is the expected behaviour: because the blend mode "pass through" would be the same as "normal" (At least I do not see a difference - please describe the difference between the two modes) in Adobe Photoshop it works - so importing into Affinity (Photo) corrupts the document. I've attached the original .psd file, the screenshots of the Photoshop and the screenshot of Affinity Photo Thanks, Christian passthrough.psd
  9. @walt.farrell thanks, "grouping" the adjustment layer did the trick (now I hope that the bleed issue will be fixed)
  10. Hi Affinity Team, I would like to use master pages to apply some sort of uniform layer adjustment on multiple pages of the document (e.g. recolour adjustment so that all pages have the same colour). So I want to create a master page only containing the layer adjustment layer (e.g. a single recolour adjustment). But when I apply the master to a page, the page content is not modified by the master page. It would be great if the blend mode "pass through" would be available. Thanks, Christian
  11. Affinity Publisher - Windows 10 Steps to Reproduce create a red filled rectangle (the colour does not matter, just for simple showing the effect) duplicate this rectangle create a Recolour Adjustment Layer (it is created as adjustment for just on rectangle) change the properties of the Recolour Adjustment Layer to Green (the colour does not matter, just for simple showing the effect) in the layers panel drag & drop the Recolour Adjustment Layer to the top --> the recolour adjustment is applied to both rectangles as expected now group the Recolour Adjustment Layer with the upper rectangle no set the blend mode of the group Blend mode "normal" - only the upper rectangle is recoloured as expected Blend mode "pass through" - both rectangles should be recoloured. There are also one more issues with blend modes and a group containing only a"Recolour Adjustment Layer": recolour is only applied within the actual document borders - so the bleed area is not effected. Note: neither the used colours (red, green) nor the used object (rectangle) is important, I've used them to simplify the example. Thanks, Christian PS: Also reproducible with Affinity Publisher Beta
  12. Affinity Publisher (Windows 10) Steps to reproduce: Create a new document (e.g. A4) with facing pages, start on left add a rectangle (with solid fill) to master page "Master A" covering the whole area add three pages to the document using master page "Master A" (so you have total of 4 pages) on each page place a simple unique text (e.g. the number 1 to 4) select File/Document Setup... - in the dialogue select "Start on Right" --> the text on page 2 vanishes - this is because the order of layers gets corrupted - "Master A" is above the text of page 2 Note: there is a similar problem when adding or removing a odd number of pages to your document at the start I think a simple solution would be: if changing the start page setup add a single page - so the rest of the document should would not be modified at all warn the user if he inserts/removes an odd number of pages in an document with facing pages This would solve the issue for me - I just wanted to add a single title page to the document. Thanks & Happy Easter, Christian PS: can also be reproduces with Affinity Publisher Beta
  13. I had the same issue unintentionally today - I didn't want to keep the aspect ratio (but the lock was checked every time - I would prefer if the last state is remembered)
  14. @Jon P Thanks for your response - Note that there is a similar issue when placing a TOC into a master page - only the first use of this master page works as expected.
  15. Affinity Publisher on Windows Steps to reproduce: create a new publisher document add (one or more) frame text, add text and assign the "heading 1" text style add a frame text and add an Table of Contents into this frame text -> the TOC is shown duplicate this frame text (select duplicate from the context menu in the layers panel) -> the TOC is shown in both frame text now edit one of the created headings in the Text menu select "Table of Contents", "Update all Table of Contents" -> only one TOC is updated (the other cannot be updated at all, even when selecting and "Update Table of Content") Thanks, Christian
