  1. Hello walt.farrell, Thank you very much for your reply. Indeed, they are showing up every time over the whole design. But in the meantime I find the cause of my problem by the reply of Dutchshader. I appreciate you and Dutchshader advice very much. Have a nice day. Chris
  2. Hello Dutchshader, Thank you very much for your help, exactly what I was looking for. My problem is solved now. Have a great day. Chris
  3. Hello everyone Can you please help me with the following problem? There are red lines visible on the artwork which I placed in my Designer document. Also around the text I type is a a kind of red outline present. When I export everything to png then those red lines are no longer present. However it is very confusing those red outlines in the design environment. I tried everything but cannot get rid of those lines. Can you tell me how I can get rid of those frustrating lines? Thank you very much in advance for your help. Chris
  4. Despite the fact ebook creation would be a nice feature, I think the main purpose of Affinity Publisher is in Desktop publishing. Adobe Indesign can produce epub, mobi ebooks. However, dedicated ebook creation applications like Jutoh are far better than Indesign or Publisher will ever be. Not because they are not capable but because paper publishing is very much different than ebook publishing. With Publisher format and style is very important. For ebook creation formatting and style is very important as long as the generated ebook is easy to read and navigate. Creating bookmarks and notes is much more important than layout. PagePlus also could generate ebooks, however there where many problems with it. Atlantis WordProcessor, Microsoft Word can create ebooks too, however Word add a lot of garbage. One good advice, if you really want to create ebooks, use dedicated applications like Jutoh. It is worthwhile the steep learning curve. Chris

    Arrow Tool

    You can also use "Convert to curves" which lets you change the individual nodes with the "Node" tool. Also take a look at the context toolbar for the arrow tool. I experimented a little with it and it gives fine control over the arrow. What puzzles me is that you can draw vertical arrows. Maybe you are using the 1.7 beta but I can only draw horizontal arrows in the 1.6.x version. Can you tell me how you can draw vertical arrows? Thank you very much. Have a nice day. Chris
  6. Hello everybody, Thank you all very much for your advice which is very helpfull and let me think in a different way. I made my own style category "Bad_Wolf" and wanted to move some styles I created in the "Default" category. It is not possible to drag and drop them directly, nor is there a menu command which do this. So I took an empty document and placed an object (rectangle, oval, ...) onto the drawing area and gave it the style I wanted to move. Then I switched to the "Bad_Wolf" category and selected "Add style from selection". Now I just have to rename this style and bingo. @Petar PetrenkoYour suggestion works only for text styles. When using object Styles, that is not possible. Thank you anyway for the suggestion. @Petar Petrenko
  7. Thank you for your reply which I appreciate very much . I was afraid of this answer because I searched for hours and experimented a lot but with no result. Like you, I also hope linked object styles will be added. Chris
  8. Hello all, Can you help me with editing styles. I created my own style and add it to several objects. Now I want to edit my self created style so that the change reflect in all objects where this style is used. Can you tell me if that is possible and how? I created that style in the "Default" category. Now I created a new category "Bad_Wolf". How can I move my styles in "Default" to "Bad_Wolf"? Thank you for your help. Chris
  9. Epubs should be a reflowable layout. Ereaders have problems with fixed layouts, they mostly do not look good. I think Apub is targetting tradional printing instead of the ereader/epub market segment. I am using Jutoh for my epub documents. I do not think it is a good idea for Apub to support epub/kindle compiling. Good epub documents do not contain much formatting because the user can change it in the blink of an eye. For true traditional printing or wordprocessing documents it is another matter. There layout is much more important and necessary.
  10. Hi, Our replies crossed each other. Why not creating the chart lines with a rectangle and the divider lines with the pen tool? However I added a second page and now used a table, grouped everything and when resizing everything resized perfectly. I attach the update project again. Chris GroupedRaster.afpub
  11. Hi, I drawed your raster with those rounded rectangles and some text. then I selected the chart, those rounded rectangles and the text by drawing a selection rectangle around them. Then in the context sensitive toolbar, somewhere in the middle you see "group". Just click on that and everything will be grouped. When you now drag the resizing handles, everything will resize with respect to the other grouped objects. I attached the demo project with this reply. Hope this helps. Chris GroupedRaster.afpub
  12. No, there is no word/character count in Publisher and it is not necessary. I am using Atlantis Wordprocessor and there is a very nice word/character count feature. You can even set a target to write. When you finish your text, you can copy and paste it in Publisher. When the import function is ready, you can import your text file.
  13. Inline graphics is a very important and necessary feature especially for the first release version.Many people are gonna be disappointed when it is not in the final release version. However, for those using math formula's and other objects, if you have a font creation program like Font Creator, you can made glyphs of your formulas and create it as a font. I do not know if OpenType is supported in Publishers yet, but when it is you can even create multi color glyphs if you wish. It is different when you want a photo or drawing flowing with your text. If the inline graphics/anchor feature will be implemented as in PagePlus, that would be perfect. A big "thank you" for the Affinity team. I like Publisher more and more with every update. Keep up the good work! Chris
