  1. I'm sure that I could go up and click (which is what I do now) or scroll, but the point is to not have to use the mouse and waste those few seconds on each of them. Hopefully there is a way.
  2. I have keyboard shortcuts for just about everything when doing a newspaper. Affinity is proving itself very capable as we have switched over our newspaper from Indesign after 17 years. There is one thing (of several) that I would love to know, or if not be added, and that is the ability to change the number of columns in a text frame with a keyboard modifier such as command + up arrow or down arrow when a frame is selected. I cannot seem to figure it out what it is or how to make a modifier to do it. thanks!
  3. 1.93 isn't beta-at least not on the mac. I've switched almost all of our production machines from Indesign to Publisher - including our newspaper publication. I've found it's faster to get the weekly publication out in AP than in ID. I did 16 years in ID and now in 3 weeks it's already better at almost every level. Perhaps post this in the bugs forum and see if they can be of better help than I. have you messed around with your RAM settings in the performance preferences? I remember changing mine to make things work better.
  4. I'm not trying to be adversarial. I thought you were making the remark strictly because it was using a lot of memory, and that was the only problem. Your post didn't indicate that your were having performance issues of any sort. Failing to load is an issue, but not sure it's related to memory usage. Have you tried with 1.93? I noticed it was more stable.
  5. That memory usage is not a problem at all, at least from my experience. Publisher on my computer will easily take up a 3GB+ in a just a few minutes with just one file open. That's no problem because computers have so much memory. What's the point of lots of memory if your programs can't use it? I used to think like what your saying until I got Affinity. Realizing how much better it is to work in than Adobe changed my mind. I'm fine with it using memory if it gives me a great experience. if you want low res previews and jerkiness, dropped frames, and still use lots of memory, Adobe is your software.
  6. @GeGr If you would like to transfer your INDD files to IDML easily, there is a batch plugin for Indesign that will do your entire harddrive and save them to a folder you specify. It works pretty well from my experience. It's just called batch_convert.
  7. has this been fixed at all? Find and replace should be limited by page, frame, or entire document, I would think.
  8. I guess I could use Designer to make the initial document but the guide manager doesn't work with all the artboards right, does it? I did successfully do our first newspaper edition this week using Publisher instead of Indesign. It actually worked without too many problems. No showstoppers and the separations looked okay for the most part. Some of the ads that gray was specified ended up separating as RGB converted to CMYK and I'm not sure why. If you made sure ahead of time that the color in the ads were 0 0 0 100 then the colors translated to the correct plate.
  9. This is for a newspaper layout. In Indesign you can use the page tool and move the page so there is a gap. That way it looks more like the newspaper page (with the gutter). It makes it easier to have things go off the edge without effecting the adjacent page in the spread.
  10. on the mac it seems to do nothing. from the responses I found online it looks that windows versions are crashing.
  11. What does it mean if I have a multi-artboard file but objects only one artboard can be selected by the mouse? The other artboards are not locked and neither are the child objects. The only way that I can selecte them is to go into the layers pallet and click each one there.
  12. Did you happen to watch the very good tutorial video that they have for this? It shows using to different data sources simultaneously. for the most part, much more powerful than Indesign. The only feature I miss is the blank cell feature to remove the line.
  13. Ok. I did some more testing and attached the file and the link. it happens when I use PDF X4 setting for export. If I use PDF for print it does not do rasterize. It also does seem to do the same whether it is the slice or export. I must have had to different settings last night when I thought they were the same. Virtual Open House.pdf test.afdesign
  14. Thanks for getting version 1.9 out. I think the new features will be very good. I am testing out the PDF Passthrough abilities for our newspaper and every time I do the file is rasterized when exported using slices. It seems to export fine from the export menu, but with slices it rasterizes the file using the same PDF export setting. Is there anything that I am missing? Also, is there a way to get a higher resolution preview out of PDF passthrough? thanks!
  15. Ok. I see that if I remove the stroke around the text it doesn't do that. If I ad it back on, it does it again. But it doesn't do that with all text blocks. I wonder why? Thanks for fixing that and to let me know what I can do while waiting!
  16. I'm attaching the file if you want to examine it. Otherwise, go ahead and delete. WCCH_RL_11.20.afdesign
