  1. You are looking for the index function. This allows you to reference a text and output the page number (and text) elsewhere.
  2. Affinity Publisher is a desktop publishing program and has traditionally been used to create print products such as books, flyers or leaflets. In recent years, however, more and more applications have been added, such as eBooks or presentation slides. I'm a big fan of Affinity and I like the programs very well. I also like the idea that someone like Affinity is trying to bring a competitive product to InDesign on the market. However, there is still a lot of work to be done in this vision. But with the support of all of us, this can become possible. But it is still a long way.
  3. In all input fields where [no change] is, the arrow can be clicked on. Then the value changes by 1 pixel. If I delete the contents of the field and then try to create a new value by clicking the arrows, it will not work anymore. Is this a bug? Incidentally, the same behavior can also be observed on Affinity Photo and Designer.
  4. It is not the job of a publishing software to scan images. Before layout, the images should be processed with software like Affinity Photo. This is the usual workflow. In version 1, the simple switch from publisher to photo will be possible. We will then see if it makes sense to scan images in Publisher.
  5. I like Affinity Publisher. But there is still much to do to be perceived as a professinal desktop publishing and typesetting programm.

  6. You do not need to reset your example. After the first query, all you have to do is change the font and restart the query. Reset is not necessary. What I mean is, when you start a NEW query, you have to press the reset button twice. If there were a general reset button that resets both settings, you would not need to open both option menus. It is not a big adjustment, but with many queries it saves a few annoying clicks. In addition, it could not happen that a setting on find or replace is forgotten to reset.
  7. I like finding and replacing function. There are many ways to search for words, formatting or styles. Unfortunately the button "Reset Format" has to be clicked twice. In the "Find Option" at "Find" and at "Replace". Would it make sense to place one "Reset Format" button on the interface?
  8. It is not everywhere possible to jump one field further with the tab key. For example in columns (see printscreen). This feature would be important if you mainly want to work with the keyboard.
  9. Is a workbook planned for Affinity Publisher?
  10. You're right. The missing font is a problem if you send the file to another PC or Mac. If the font is missing, it always causes problems. Collecting all data in a folder is a good solution.
  11. Instead of exporting the embedded images altogether, why not put all the images in a folder. These will then be linked to the document. So you already have a folder with all images. These can also be edited at any time. In the beta version it is not yet possible to switch directly to Affintiy Photo. In the official version (V1) this will be possible. The images can then be processed even more efficiently.
  12. Why do you want to impose your project? The printing company that prints the product has professional software for it. In most cases, the customer does not know how the printer will impose the product. There are also other factors to consider such as paper thickness and bleed allowance. The printing company generally prefers to work with single pages.
  13. PDF export with bleed is not optimally solved, bleed setting is redundant.
  14. Es gibt die Möglichkeit so was ähnliches wie ein Gestaltungsraster zu erstellen. Dies finktioniert über view/Grid and Axis Manager... Allerdings kann damit ein Raster nur sehr ungenau erstellt werden und reicht bei weitem nicht für den professionellen Einsatz. Dazu gibt es bereits einen Eintrag.
