  1. I am assembling a 160 page book with photos and text, what is the best way to move pages around within  the document . For example P60 might need to be moved to P70 . Do I copy delete and past on a newly created page or is there a better way.

  2. Thankyou for your interest . I have now in fact deleted the old Beta and the old files can now be read in Retail A great relief. Sorry for the panic !
  3. Thanks Walt. The files are on my desktop and backed up on icloud but both are whited out where there should be the Affinity Publisher yellow logo. When I click to open the message reads Thank you for using the Affinity Publisher public Beta the test has now expired.
  4. Thanks Jeremy I've been a bit cautious with the Beta since I don't want to lose it , maybe the only hope of getting back to my 130 pages of work ! The Retail is performing OK now , only I need to recover my old Beta files.
  5. I have several chapters - 15 about 8 pages each , separately compiled . I'd like to combine them into one master book I wasn't sure of the order hence being done separately . I am able to cut and paste each component no problem but is there a more efficient way in Publisher of transferring these files to my master ?
  6. Thanks I have OS X El Capitan 10.11.6 all the Beta Publisher files in my folder are in grey. The Affinity Publisher Beta is in my Applications but when I double click it tells me Beta has expired . The same happens when I click on the files. The Retail version works fine when I create new files.
  7. Publisher Beta - can the files be used on the Retail version ? All my files are grey and the Beta seems to have gone !

  8. I've tried the first stage again but now the Retail thinks it's a Beta . I can open files once in Retail but when I click on a file in my folder it tells me Beta is no longer available and doesnt open.
  9. I have 3 months of work on Beta , so keen to import to Retail if possible , all the files are grey. I've followed your guide for " Faster" and nothing changed sadly . The Beta no longer appears so I can't try the " Safer" I'd welcome any more help
  10. Let's hope ! I've spent 3 months working on Beta now I can't load the files to the final version ! Surely there must be a way to transfer them ?
  11. I am producing a book with about 300 photographs many are converted from colour prints in Affinity Publisher Beta but the PDF export I am doing for a printing test seems softer than the same of individual pages exported to JPG. The photographs are reasonable quality at 300dpi. Has anyone had the same experience or is PDF generally - the test is only one chapter of 10 pages.
  12. I have tried to set my 11 page numbers on my document . As directed in the very good tutorial , I am in my master page, I clicked on frame text tool to create a box and then went in to text , insert , fields and page number . All seems simple except the result is a hash symbol. I changed this to 1 but the numbers do not run consecutively through the document. I am up to date with my version of Publisher.
  13. Thank you both - this all works now . It wasn't clear from the Youtube tutorial I am using .
  14. Thanks Walt . I have replaced the hash with number 1 and 2 on the facing page - but all the other pages have 1 and 2 they still don't run as a sequence which is strange .
  15. Is it possible to move pages between separate documents in Affinity Publisher Beta ?
  16. Many thanks Walt it all works well .
  17. I have forgotten my password , Affinity has promised to send me an update to my e mail address but nothing has arrived , this is the second time I have tried . I purchased Affinity Designer 6 months ago . Any thoughts please ?
  18. I have forgotten my password so cannot access my Affinity Designer account . I am waiting for a new password to be sent to my email address but nothing has arrived, this is the second time I have tried with no result. Any thoughts? Derek
  19. My start up disc has crashed and is unrecoverable . This had my Affinity Designer software on it , my e mails are on there too so have no record of the original transaction and code. How do I reconnect please ? Derek

    Crashes on application start

    Thanks very much indeed I have now installed a new Beta file and this works well . However all the files I've created for my current job this month on Affinity Designer and some on the old Beta cannot be pasted into this new software because it crashes just like before when I embed the files and try to work on them. If I uninstall my original Affinity Designer software as well and replace with a new one will my old files work on the new version? Otherwise all the work I've been creating over the last month will have to be done again - there's a lot of it !
