    Bryce reacted to purveyor27 in Column Spacing   
    wonderful.  thanks!  
    Now I do have a suggestion... there should be a LOCK for column gutters so you can adjust them together.  seems tedious to have to adjust each column space individually, when, in most cases you'd want all spacing the same.  
    Another note: I think its an AMAZING feature that you can adjust the width of each column independently!  This is something that InDesign is lacking.  great feature!!

    Bryce got a reaction from DavidDoesAffinity in PDF woes   
    No problem. Another solution, that is if the printer supports it, so to check the box in affinity when exporting to a PDF, make sure that overprint black is specified in the export box. The only way this will work though is to be printing using a postscript driver/printer from Acrobat. It will also make your blacks more dense.

     
    We use that quite often to ensure no gaps throughout the print run.

    Bryce reacted to MikeW in Wasted 209,33€ because of —your— app bug!   
    I once made a mistake in a drawing and ran 1000 units. A bit more wasted cost than 209,33€. It was a different mistake in a different software. But totally my fault. The shop doing the cutting's moto is "We make it exactly like your file." And they did. I have always checked my output files before and since...but the mistake I made slipped through.
    I don't know why the scale was different between your two files. The only time I have had size weirdness in Affinity software was related to the document DPIs.

    Bryce reacted to walt.farrell in superscript   
    I'm not sure why this discussion is in a Publisher Bugs forum.
    But in case you're not aware, Publisher can make any character into a faux superscript using the Superscript/Subscript ("S:") pulldown in the Positioning and Transform section of the Character panel:

    Had a fun little play around manipulating fire! I think I need to spend a little more time refining the masking especially on the fingers but otherwise it was pretty easy to do!
    I used Live Filter > Sharpen > Clarity to get some grungy face texture going on, a few adjustment layers for lighting and then I masked in some flame images from a resource pack I bought earlier in the year

    I have no idea what a "common user" might do when visiting a web site but my point remains that site designers cannot completely control what users see when they do that, whether or not the designer includes those attributes.

    Bryce reacted to walt.farrell in Convert text to outlines   
    Not, but only because the same sequence of actions as you took in Designer, when done in Publisher, keeps the path fill and stroke. It is the inconsistency in identical actions that suggests to me there's a bug in one of them.
    Thanks for the explanation of what you did. There's still an oddity to be explained.
    If I use the Artistic Text tool in Design
    er and make the letter A, then convert it to Curvers, then convert that to a Text Path, and then type a phrase, I get this:

    In the Layers panel this shows up as:
    In your file, the Layers panel shows:
    So (a) why does it appear to be normal artistic text rather than text on a path, and (b) why is the phrase "Neither Affinity Designer nor Affinity Publisher is Broken" incomplete on the Layer panel?

    Bryce reacted to MickRose in Is it possible to disable the movement of selected text?   
    I like the idea that you can select non- contigeous text blocks - that's good. But sometimes I've found myself double clicking to select a word and then try to select the whole paragraph with the mouse. What happens is the selected word(s) move to the new position, making a jumble. If I could disable the direct movement of selected text that would be good. I know I can press the escape key to deslect a selection but I'd rather have an option to not allow direct movement of selected text. Maybe it already exists but I can't find it.

    Bryce reacted to Fixx in Color swatches do not link to objects?   
    Swatches is quite bad design at the moment. It should be much easier to drag colours to swatches and define them global.
    Possibly all swatches should be global from the start, and if you need to keep some elements with original colour you just make a copy of a colour for editing.

    I'm having fun trying to reproduce what you have made, BUT I can't seem to get the same thing. It's interesting for sure but when i apply the shadows you can see all of my cuts. What's the secret to that?

    Bryce got a reaction from jmwellborn in PagePlus vs Affinity Publisher   
    First and foremost is it is a native Mac application. Pageplus was never designed for MacOS. That is huge! Artboards, multiple strokes, Studiolink, infinite document size (I haven't been able to max it out), and very smooth operation (best on Mac because of Metal).
    I had Pageplus since about 1992 (vs 2.0 I think) and it was a great product for it's time. By 2000 it was clearly dated and not keeping up just as Aldus Pagemaker was not, and it moved towards the MS Publisher way of doing things. It had unique things that I really liked but the work coming out of it was just not what prepress and printers could use without serious modifications in the PDFs.
    If you liked wizards you probably won't like Affinity Publisher or Designer. Affinity is truly for creatives who want complete control and not a bunch of templates where it inserts your information on to whichever "design" you like.
    If you like having an amazing amount of control over the entire look and feel, then Affinity is right for you.
    If you have specific tools that you want to know, just ask, and it will be confirmed for you.

    Why don’t you go through the Publisher official tutorials, available in these forums, to see for yourself?   You would surely be best suited to compare what you are now doing with what you might be able to do.

    Bryce reacted to padura in Multiverses - artwork on affinity designer   
    ok, i didn't know this. I focused on the beta of Publisher and not at all on the news of Designer. To create the effect of "above and below" in some points, which is clearly an illusion, I had to transform all the contours into shapes and then cut some parts from superimposition to themselves in order to create the “woven” effect that is what i'm looking for. I work with different materials and I wanted to try to do a work on designers. Thank you! at the moment there is a blackout so I can't access my computer, but as soon as I can post a detail.
    EDIT
    I have attached some screenshots, I hope it's understandable.

    I just spent a half an hour looking for the error on my file and when I finally found it, it wasn't missing anything. I moved the frame a little and the red dot went away. For people who have color blindness issues, I hope that we can get this changed to the program locating the frame with the problem rather than having to search for it.
