  1. fde101 - OK, I created an 8 page A5 Booklet. Master A is the default double page spread. Master B single Page Master for Left Hand pages and Master C a single page master for Right Hand pages. Yes, one can can apply Master A to the doublepage spreads AND apply a single page Master (B or C) as appropriate on top of the spread master....HOWEVER ... The ruler measure only displays the base double-page spread ruler - so still no way to create multiple rulers. each with their own rule measure. :-(
  2. Also, it would require having 3 sets of rulers - 1 for the background master and 1 guide ruler for each of the pages - which might not be a bad thing H.
  3. Thanks fde101, but I can't see a way of copying and pasting a Master into a Master - any ideas? Hal.
  4. Chris-K, Thanks. I tried that and it works..but... On a double-page (DP) spread, as far as I can see the master guides are still linked to the whole of the DP background rather than to each page on the background. Obviously, it’s better to see the pages together rather as single pages - and I suspect from a topic I raised earlier, pages need to be set as facing pages for impositioning anyway. I guess I’m making a plea for masters guides linked to the whole of a DB spread background and a separate set of guides linked to each page. That way I could arrange items in relation to the origin point of the Spread ... and with the page guides place items in relation to the page edge without having to calculate where things fall from one page to another.
  5. i set it up as an A5 doc with facing pages checked. The default display on the pages menu is for 4 pages - i.e. 2 A5 portrait pages on each side of 1 A4 landscape sheet of paper - the 'spread'. The Master view side bar - displays two portrait A5 pages sitting butted together down the vertical centre line of a master A4 landscape checkerboard background (the 'baseboard'). The grid is anchored to the master background A4 'spread'. In the pages view side bar - Page 1 (the front cover) displays as a single page, pages 2&3 as a spread & page 4 as single page (the back page). so, when it comes to guides, the master for spreads is also the master for the single pages. As I said, this makes it very difficult to create positioning guides to individual pages when they don't share the same origin in relation to their edges. ideally, I'd like to have a master guide for the background 'baseboard' and separate guidelines for each of the master pages - does that make sense? Cheers, H.
  6. Hi, I created an A5 page with facing pages which (Iguess) creates a default A4 spread. I set the master to display guides which covered the entire spread. However, instead of creating guides for each of the 2 pages on the spread, the guides started the origin at top left of spread (of page 1) and end at bottom right (of page 2) but seem to treat the spread as one page. This means that the guides fall at different places in relation to the edges of each document page, meaning object do not fall in the same place from one page to another. How do I get guides that work the same on each page rather than setting up guides in a master (which is of different dimensions)? Cheers, Hal.

    Ok, that worked. Thanks again. Cheers, Hal.

    Thanks, I’ll try that.
  9. I’m reposting this from a different grouping which I mistakenly sent it... Hi, I used to use PagePlus on my PC to create multipage A5 centre stapled booklets printed via my Desktop printer on A4 paper. PagePlus could create imposition PDF files that I could then be saved and used to print the booklets. PagePlus's ability to sort the pages into the required printing order - including putting the front page and back page together made life a dream. I can't see how to end up with the same result using Affinity Publisher on my iMac, or even to get it to print direct from Publisher. Can anyone help? Thanks, Hal.
  10. Thanks Walt Farell, I’ll repost in the appropriate group.
  11. I've edited the original post and corrected my error.
  12. So sorry v-kyr, I was wrong to say Designer - it was the latest version of Publisher that I used.
