    Eugene has done a fine job, but shouldn't Publisher have a built in function for inserting rudimentary calendars, like Page Plus does??

    Hanzz reacted to Eugene Tyson in Publisher: Automate Calendar (sorta) - Paragraph Numbering   
    Someone suggested I put this here - posted in the Affinity Publisher Forum - 
     
    See the link above for additional comments
     
    Post from link is copy and pasted below: 
     
    I'm going to use a Calendar as a way of showing a few useful features I found out - and some suggestions.

    Firstly, dragging out a table is great! Select the Table icon in the tool bar, select the Snapping tool to get it to snap to the margins, and simply Drag Out the table - you will see it gives dimensions - rows and column counts too! Pretty cool!

    There are only a few modifier keys available. A modifier key is when you are using the mouse to move/alter something and press a key on the keyboard to get it to behave a different way.
    Shift = constrains proportions CMD = sizes from the centre point where you clicked on the screen What I think is missing is a modifier key to allow the amount of rows and columns - simple arrow keys could add and remove rows and columns would be super useful!
     
     

    For this calendar - I only want the First 3 rows to appear. Month - Days - Dates
    I draw out the table and let go of the mouse and low and behold - I have 7 (that was lucky) columns and 3 rows, as I only dragged down that far.
     
    The added feature that's pretty cool!
    With the Table tool still selected - you can drag down the table from the tab as indicated. Or similarly - on the right hand side, grab the tab and drag to add more columns!
    You can slide them up and down or left and rigth until you have the desired amount of columns or rows.
     
    However, once you have made your decision - you cannot remove the rows/columns by dragging them back up. I presume this is to prevent deleting information accidentally, however, if the cells are empty I don't see why this can't be done 
     
    If you want to remove the column/row you can select it and right click and choose Delete Row
    However if you have more than one row/column selected you cannot choose to Delete Rows!
     No option to Delete Rows 
     

    To delete more than one Row/Column you have to use the Table menu and choose "Delete Rows" or "Delete Columns"
     

    Onto the calendar!

    Select the top row and right click and choose Merge Cells
     
     

    View>Studio>Table (I believe this menu and sub menus are subject to change)
     

    Select your table and add some "Insets" so the text doesn't butt up against the cell wall - this is optional and you can adjust to how you like. 
    Very important to ensure you're on the CELLS portion - there is an option for the FRAME - which is above in the screenshot of the Table Panel, this is relating to the Frame the table sits in and not the Table Properties.
    That's a bit confusing becuase you'd expect the Table options to the forefront of the options, however, not a major issue! 
     
     

    In fact it's all optional - I'm leaving mine plain because I want to show another feature.
    Insert the Month top row - days on the 2nd row - and leave the 3rd row blank.
    Select the entire 3rd row and go to View>Studio>Paragraph
     
    Expand the Bullets and Numbering List! 
     


    Choose 1. 2. 3. 4.
     
    Change the text section to read as. 
     


    Note - when you edit this panel option - you need to hit Return - this shouldn't be the case - if you don't hit return your changes won't be implemented. 

    Your table should now look like this!
     
     

    Grab the TAB as shown before - to expand the table to add more rows. 
     
    January 2019 starts on a Tuesday (any calendar will tell you that 
     )

    Cool feature! You can select cells noncontiguous - that means they don't have to be beside each other. 

    To do this - select the A3 cell - then let go of the mouse to leave it highlighted. Press the CMD key (possibly CTRL on PC) which is the "modifier key" then select the remaining cells. 

    From the List Type in the Paragraph Panel - you can then set this to NO LIST.
     
     



    Your table will now automatically renumber to ensure all the days have the correct number assigned.
     
        Drag the handle down on the side of the table - to make it fill the page! 
       



    Select the numbered rows - right click and select distribute rows evenly


       



    Duplicate your page


       



    Rename Month to February 

    January ended on a Thursday - so February starts on a Friday and February 2018 has 28 days. 
       





    Select the first 3 days - and set the Paragraph Numbering to No List
       



    Voila! February is Done! 
       





    Add your icons! 
       

    Now you can repeat the steps to make the remaining calendar months!

    It's kind of baffling how indignant, angry, and impatient some are with this. Personally, I'd rather they take their time and get it right. The iPad Photo launch was pretty bumpy to be honest... so I'm betting they're making sure this thing is fairly rock solid before anyone even gets to play with it. 

    I'm cool with that.

    That's pretty wild. At first, I thought that upper building was the front of a ship. The way the angle is and all the buildings shifting, it's almost deceiving in thinking they are standing on that ring, but obviously they wouldn't be tilting. It forces a person to observe the picture.

    Yeah I think I've heard of Fliexify-2 before, and I even think I downloaded it, but I couldn't figure it out. Ultimately I sorta was hoping you know ... Affinity Photo being a competitor to Photoshop, they would institute some kind of function that would allow me to straighten 360 photos without having to resort to Photoshop again.

    My joking aside, you know how Publisher has been pushed back far from it's original estimation date. Well even though I know nothing about those persona icons or whatever, I have a strange feeling those might be why. Whatever they do, we were told that no other program does it. Spending five years to accomplish whatever this major task is goes to show how hard working Serif is. So I don't care about the delays. Seeing this incredible work and then hearing that the price is the same and there is still no subscription, Serif deserves so much credit. Best software developing company out there.

    Hanzz reacted to Gnobelix in sharpen with bilateral blur   
    I would like to introduce here a method of sharpening.
    This method is not new, many will know it from Photoshop.
    For those who do this method not know, i reconstructed it in AP.
    Step  1. open the picture and editing e.g. HSL balance, white balance etc.
    Step  2. select the top layer.
    Step  3. duplicate the layer with keyboard shortcut CTRL + SHIFT + ALT + E  twice.
    Step  4. change blend mode to Linear Light
    Step  5. invert the Layer with keyboard shortcut CTRL + I
    Step  6. opacity to 50% (important that the 50% are met exactly)
    Step  7. filters-blur - bilateral blur: adjust radius to 5 pix
                 and adjust tolerans between 45% and 55% (i think the the optimal value is 50%)
    Step  8. layer - merge down with keyboard shortcut CTRL + E
    Step  9. adjust the new layer blend mode from normal to overlay (with the opacity playing)
    Step 10. create a mask layer, (to select areas that are not needed)
    All steps are in a macro recording, see below
    Best Regards

    Was it just me or at the beginning of the video, didn't it look like there were three personas? But the two Personas to the right of Publisher, those look like the icons for Designer and Photo, no?
     

     
    So, are we literally going to have access to ALL of the features and functions of both Designer and Photo within Publisher?
