    WhiteX got a reaction from SillyWalk in Select Objects Across Multiple Pages?   
    I work on a ~50 page illustrated book, and I often need to change different objects at once on all pages, but it's not possible to select objects from different pages / spreads. This feature would be very useful. Wasn't this asked yet? (Except in this thread).

    WhiteX reacted to Patrick Connor in Merge 2 Publisher documents?   
    Welcome to the Serif Affinity forums
    To all readers of this thread,
    The ability to insert a number of pages of one publisher document into another publisher document is being worked on actively at the moment, and will appear in a beta when it is ready for customer beta appraisal. It requires quite a lot of programming to achieve what would be desired with respect to text styles, master pages, index links, text flow etc, as you have seen from the participants of this and other threads.

    WhiteX reacted to c0rky in Affinity Publisher - Copy pages between afpub documents   
    Hi. Used Affinity Publisher v1.7.1 to prepare multiple afpub documents. I seek to use a limited number of pages from one afpub document within a separate afpub document. I see no way to copy/paste pages or to drag pages between afpub documents. Prefer to copy/page afpub pages rather than each textbox frame / component.
    Is it possible to use pages from one afpub document in a separate afpub document?

    I’ll check tomorrow but I’m pretty sure drag and drop is in InDesign. Maybe not a bug but it is pretty defective to have no way to incorporate numerous pages from one doc to another.

    WhiteX reacted to Tim Gummer in Cloning Artboards incrementally Numbers Artboard Name   
    Just a little thing really but  - currently, as soon as artboards are cloned they appear in the layers panel under the same name, and it's difficult to know which is which without clicking around the place. Of course they will eventually get proper names, but it would be lovely if they just named themselves Artboard 1, Artboard 2 etc when cloned.
    That is all.

    Thanks @Sean P, apparently the repair tool did the trick. I'll just run it if the problem will re-appear. Thanks for the other tips too. (If you could mark the topic as solved, that would be a big help to others, I'm unable to edit the title of the topic.)
    Thanks again!

    You can create a single document page, and create a text frame on it (with columns if you want), and then paste all of your text into it.
    The text will overflow, and you'll see two red icons on the lower right side of the frame. If you shift-click on the red triangle icon Publisher will duplicate your page as many times as needed to handle all the text.

    WhiteX reacted to vitor in Reset Bounding Box   
    @Ben Thank you for the thought-out response. It gives us a better understanding of the implications.
    So you’re saying that permanently resetting the bounding box of a dynamic shape will convert it to curves. That might indeed be a issue, but it also might not make a difference. That is also the outcome of @lenogre’s
    suggestion. So for example we might ⌥+click the “Reset Bounding Box” option and what it does is convert the shape to curves, reset the bounding box, and show the Assistant informing “the shape was converted to curves”.

    The second, better alternative, is to make “Reset Bounding Box” a button toggle. So we press it once and the button gets inset in the interface, and from then on it’ll always use the alternative box model until we click it again. I don’t think anyone would have a problem with this — it doesn’t really need to be permanent, it just needs to be done so we don’t have to keep toggling the option (current behaviour).

    Maybe all these replies should convince you @serif that we need a permanent version of the reset-bounding-box feature The temporary one just doesn't cut it for most of the users. Thanks.

    WhiteX reacted to zstekovic in Expand stroke still sucks   
    Yes, I can... but did you see PDF export options in Designer (compare it to Illustrator/Corel)? My shop accept bunch of different formats, but PDF that you got from Designer is really not useful in production (sometimes RIP, sometimes just hang in cue/rip process), I just got broken print (that cost money).
    When is Corel/Adobe (pre CC) PDF - it's smooth sailing.
    Like I said, fix the curve/expand stroke glitch, make program follow standards, and they are fine
    Corel did it, and all GNU/Linux stuff did it... and PDF is open standard.

    WhiteX reacted to zstekovic in Expand stroke still sucks   
    That is true. Affinity Designer is young product, but it's not made by standards, and because of that I personally can't use it.
    My shop accept Affinity user files, but for now only for printing (first i need to export them as tiff or something).
    Just this step (rasterizing) defeat the purpose of owning it, and I'm sorry about that because I generally like product.
    It's advertising precision, but it's simply not there when you need it (or be in standard to work).

    Amount of nodes is crazy, and any devices cutter have limited amount of memory for cutting, and go crazy with stuff like that.
    Just try to send that in any kind of production and you have a really big problem.
    Just drop everything else and fix foundations of program, adopt it to standards and you're going to have one awesome product.

    Thank you @Murfee and @Joachim_L. That really works in Publisher. For some reason I thought the export dialog is identical throughout the apps. For now I still use Designer to create PDF's. It would be nice if they've ported this feature to Designer too.

    WhiteX reacted to Lionel Seidman in Seams between objects   
    @TonyB Thanks for the informative reply.
    If you do go down the multisampling route, you should be able to get pretty good quality anti-aliasing by using 8x multisampling (i.e. 64 samples per pixel) or higher.  The downside there would be potentially slower performance during image exporting, but if the user wants high-quality exports I think they'll be willing to wait a couple of seconds.  It would be nice to have that option, at least.

    And just because I'm miffed, Illy's export is correct (as well as the other vector editors and even layout applications I use) and AD's is faulty. 
    Sooner or later this issue will be addressed by Serif.

    I didn't mean to say that the geometry is of no concern to me in general, just that the geometry of the shapes looks fine, and that I am not concerned about it misbehaving.
    The only thing I am concerned about is the seams between pieces of geometry.  If two pieces of geometry are exactly adjacent to each other, and when we rasterize the geometry we are able to see remnants of the background color showing through the seams, then I would say the program is misbehaving.

    If the accuracy of the geometry of vector objects is of no concern to you, why even bother designing with vectors? Why not just rasterize everything?

    WhiteX reacted to Lionel Seidman in Seams between objects   
    The geometry isn't really the concern here.  The problem is the seam between one polygon and another.  Ai handles these sorts of seams quite nicely, while Designer does not, so in that sense, Ai is more accurate.

    WhiteX reacted to WeekendProducer in some visible hairline that irritate   
    I was creating and working with vectors in Adobe Fireworks (!!) and some Inkscape (free) and I found no trace of this problem before I switched to Affinity Designer. However I found more issues I never faced before in any vector software.
    1) the stroke inside setting within a filled path leaves visible background fill color visible as a thin line on the outer edge of the stroke (or path, or object).
    2) Another problem is Affinity D only because of nested/masking paths feature is possible within AD only. The thin white line (this one is always white no matter of the BG fill color or if the stroke even exists) is visible when child (nested) path is placed over the edge of the parent path so the child path is partially masked behind the edge of the parent path. The white edge is visible where child and parent paths are "touching" or crossing over each other. So this is a serious rendering problem - obviously not edge near edge related as this is path crossing / overlapping edge -  that affects the work and on large projects there are no easy or quick fixes for this as it becomes a designers nightmare.

    I am experiencing this issue as well. This does not happen at all in Illustrator, so hopefully this can be fixed in AD as it's a serious annoyance for me right now.
