  1. It doesn't take a lot of working out how to duplicate a single label x number of times onto an A4 sheet. Now tell me how to print out just the 4th label on the 5th row or else four copies of the third label on the first row. This is the sort of functionality that PagePlus has which means that you don't have to print out multiple identical labels every time. This is what I'm looking for.
  2. One of the best features of PagePlus is its ability to design and selectively print out standard Avery address labels- either repeats of a single label or a sequence from a range. Each page is set up as one label design. Is this on the road map for Affinity Publisher - possibly even in the first commercial release??
  3. "Document / Page Management - Fix for master page objects not loading correctly, resulting in apparent loss of content / display issues" Build 139 doesn't seem to have fixed the display issue for guides. They are still only displaying if you add a further guide to the individual page. Is this intentional?
  4. Is it possible to reorder the numeric list of guides in the Guides Manager in ascending or descending order? When adding a new guide, it seems to default to adding it in the centre but the number is always at the end of the list so you end up with a random list of guides which is not easy to navigate especially if you add say more vertical guides to the left of an existing guide. This seems also to be the case in AD.

  6. Thanks. It's OK now and seems to have fixed itself. Must have been a glitch in my menu utility. Any chance of adding a keyboard shortcut to bring up the Guides Manager?
  7. Hey - you're right! Adding a guide to the regular page seems to fix it. Well spotted! I'm not convinced this is intentional but a useful work-around.
  8. I noticed this on the first iteration and it hasn't been fixed yet. Just started a document and created a master page. Added three or four guides to that and then clicked onto my first page (having applied the Master - not in spread view but just a single page on the screen) to find the guides were not visible so not able to place text against anything. Can't find a way to get them to show. This is such basic stuff that I must be missing something really obvious. Can't believe that nobody has noticed this yet if it is a bug that needs fixing. Starting a document, adding guides and then working with them seems such a crucial element of functionality. It looks to be exactly the same method as PagePlus does this. The only difference is that PagePlus's version works perfectly and this much awaited update doesn't. I would expect to be able to add guides to a master page, apply them to an individual page and when I go to that, see them. I'm also having trouble selecting either my master or the individual page. The grey/blue selection around the thumbnail is not obvious which you are working on and at times, both the page and the master seem to be selected. The guides still don't show then so I can't really work on either. Also the Guide Manager is acting erratically when trying to enter measurements. They keep greying out when entering figures and not moving the guides to the positions entered.
  9. Thanks DWright. That's exactly what I was looking for!
  10. I'm trying to plan out a diecut shape in AD for cutting and I have the measurements and shapes I need. I can draw a square or rectangle for instance with the Pen tool and specify in Transform how large each side is. If I draw an irregular shape, how can I specify the exact size of each side of this - or else specify the distance between each node without painstakingly having to drag it and align it against my grid? Is there a way to do this yet?
