  1. Sorry if I just pointed out the obvious. I should have added that, what I suspect you really need is the ability to create a three page spread. This isn't currently possible, but has been requested a few times.
  2. Create a new document the size of front and back cover, plus the spine. Place guides to mark where the spine comes.

    PDF placement issue

    … and this is why suggesting (as Serif do) that the best way to "convert" old PagePlus files to Affinity (especially as Affinity can't use embedded fonts) is pretty much a non-starter!
  4. What might be a nice idea, when version 2 of the three Affinity apps come out (assuming they are all released at the same time,) would be a discount for people who purchase all three of them together.
  5. Although this doesn't help with your problem, Serif do make it clear that this software is Beta, and should not be used for important/production work!
  6. Perhaps the best thing would be to have a tick box, to choose to just replace the hue, or to include saturation and lightness of the new colour as well. Just saw carl123's post - that would seem to be the best solution.
  7. I believe Microsoft have considered a subscription system for Windows. (Stop paying and your computer stops working!)
  8. I'm so pleased this has been fixed - trying to do anything other than a freehand crop has been driving me up the wall!
  9. Maybe a silly question, but, can you change the start and end position?

    Scandinavian alphabets

    I assume the problem is how to get letters like Ä, Å and Ö. But I don't know if you can change the keyboard language on an iPad, like you can on a PC, or if the Glyph Browser is available on it.
  11. While I wouldn't disagree about being able to create e-books as well, I do feel that the primary function of APub should be the creation of traditional books and other printed matter / PDFs. I would be sorry if the development of layout, typography features etc. etc. was relegated to second place in order to add all singing, all dancing interactive, movie, animation features etc. for mobile/electronic devices. I realise a lot of people seem to think that "real" books are dead (or dying) but if you just look around, you'll see that there is still a huge market for all types of printed matter.

  13. Alternatively, Group all the layers on the source page, then save it to the Assets Panel. You can then drag it onto any other page you wish.
  14. Try flattening the document before resizing the canvas. (Document - Flatten)
  15. I'm no expert, but it seems to be something to do with the "Colour Format" you choose when creating a new document. If you set it to "CMYK", black has the CMY sliders at "0" and just the black (K) slider at 100%. If you create it as "RGB" then convert it to CMYK you get " C: 72 M: 68 Y: 67 K: 88". I would assume, as you say, that it is connected to the fact that printing uses CMYK, while screen display uses RGB and that the values change when converting from one format to the other. (When printing you get a richer black if you use all the colours, not just black (K).) (By the way, I really like your images.)
