  1. For me, style management is a really fundamental issue, which still prevents me from managing a job in Publisher. The style that activates to a certain glyph or a certain sequence of elements... nested styles, grep styles, or any other shape you can invent to handle the same issue is an essential element. There are no problems for simple texts, as long as you have a title and text with some italics, but it's never that simple. I encourage Affinity to take this approach. It doesn't have to be ghreous or nested style, but to have the same effect. I can't wait to use Publisher without limitations. Unfortunately yesterday for this reason I had to redo a work that became unmanageable and very long without a programmed management of styles. As soon as I can gladly use Affinity programs and I always try to see if I can do what I have in mind with Affinity.
  2. I know to ask something that I have already asked other times, but the vectorization of an image is a basic function for many features so I allow myself to recoil the request: this is a function that I could not give up and go through the web or other applications actually tell Affinity that the program as it is not enough to perform its tasks. But I recognize a great value and so I hope very much to see soon the functions that we can no longer give up even on this suite from which everyone expects a lot.
  3. this is a very debated issue because it is very important. I have a lot of confidence in the developers because they have always done a good job, but nested styles are very important for those who work on publications: taking them off means taking a step back, so one way or another they have to be introduced.
  4. I personally find the display of text and paragraph styles messy. Somehow I would need a hierarchy to make it easier for me to see, such as a tab for text styles and a tab for paragraph styles. Then I would also find the hierarchy useful: if one style depends on another then it should be moved sideways as dependent on that. It would also be useful to introduce colors so we would have a background for text styles, one for titles ... Etc.
  5. sorry Ludwig, for the great delay, but I had not received notification of response and I forgot. The document I sent has been printed for several days. The document was not corrupt, nor broken. The lines of the document included anchored vector objects: many objects, with shadows applied. The document was not corrupt, but it was complex. I hope I can achieve the next one with Affinity, for this reason I tried to import it without apology though.
  6. Windows 10 and the latest version of Indesign subscription. I have not been able to import into Publisher an idml file with many images anchored to the text. In Indesign, an image that is anchored to text has several possible options. When I try to open a very consistent document with these features the program closes without error messages
  7. Do you think it is possible to have a field that automatically generates me all the calendar dates of a year? Maybe I just start the numbering again every time because I'd like to do a diary...
  8. I hoped that with the new version I could open a particular Idml id document of Indesign with many images inserted in the text, but it does not make it and crashes
  9. Thank you. To be able to make the Indesign/Publisher step the first step is to convert files, but there are problems with styles. I use nested styles a lot (not in this case though). I uploaded the file
  10. as long as it's not public though because I can't have to
  11. I really appreciate this feature - because it's a good place to start to solve many real problems, but I'm having problems with a 150-page document with photographs anchored to the text. In fact, it doesn't convert the document to me as I had hoped and it crashes.

    I think you're talking about the cage. you must have 100 on the cover for the center window 100 and 97 for the closing window and then mirror for the inner pages, as attached. A4-6.afpub
  13. I find the transitions of one object important to another, which in Illustrator are called mergers. this function is used a lot to generate multiple lines or particular nuances. I also really miss the plot tool with which you can make very realistic designs.
  14. let's imagine a style composed of two line aspects: a white one of 2 pt and a black (lower) one of 6 pt. The line thus composed has the appearance of two black parallel lines. Now imagine crossing two lines with this aspect: one is superimposed on the other, and at the intersection the top line is not broken. But if I could apply the style to the line group then in the intersection you would have a real intersection and all the lines would break. This is great when, for example, we draw a path of roads.
  15. I use a PC. I think you have a Mac then, because I bought all the Affinity software, but the latest version is mine.
  16. I was curious and I tried to open the files, but for both programs they tell me that they are made with an incompatible version of Affinity. I have Affinity Designer and Affinity Photo version Maybe you used some third-party plugins?
  17. For long and highly structured text documents such as in books and newspapers it is important to have intelligent and interactive style management.
  18. I really need to import excell tables so that I can style the tables while keeping the link. When I change something in the Ecell document, it also changes the final document.
  19. this request is important to me. I know that there are many services that allow this or even just pass for another program that allows it, but for it to be a truly autonomous tool I think is a necessary function
  20. I fully agree. Nested styles are difficult to abandon. For those who work on handouts it is very important to have the power in the management of styles because for long texts it saves a lot of time.
  21. when I have a cropped object I would like to have a plastic shadow. It would be enough to manage it as if it were a 3D object.
  22. it is very useful for me to have a link on the excell tables which I then edited in Publisher. In this way I could update excell and have the texts modified also in Publisher.
  23. I do not know why, but more and more often files that I created with affinity designers can no longer be opened. The program says that they are not compatible even if they were not made with a previous version ... and even if it was certain I do not expect to be able to use them anymore!
  24. the black defined as C0 M0 Y0 K100 is displayed as if it were a gray one, besides the black management in the texts is missing. Normally the text should have a black overprint and this should also apply to most lines, frames, etc. In my tests I found big problems handling this which is one of the fundamental aspects when working with texts. The black text is usually always opaque overprinting on the funds that allow the contrast. When there is no contrast the text usually colors and then in that case the overprint does not make sense ... but for the black it should not even be set ... if ever the opposite is true: I have to disable the overprint if I do not want it.
