  1. Thank you for taking care of it. Since it worked in the old version and if Serif fixed a problem with the links, I will probably wait for the beta version. The chances seem to be good that it will solve the problem.
  2. I'm trying to open a file from a flyer (and some more) made with the 1.7 version in the 1.8.1 and it keeps on instantly crashing. I tried it on two macs with the latest 10.15 and 10.14 macOS with the newst AP and older versions of the file. Same problem. I can send you the file for any checkups, but not public if you're interessted. PS: This problem + the nasty font bug makes this release very unstable for production use. What a shame, never had heavy issues before.
  3. Also tried to place a PDF (X3 and X4 same result) generated by current InDesign. Page size is A4 (210x297mm). Placed it is a little smaler that a quarter. A A4 generated X3-PDF from AP and placed in a new AP document has the same problem. Same from the AD beta. Placing all of these PDFs in the AD beta work in correct size A4.
  4. Sorry, to be specific: AP .162 crashes every time if I try to move and/or try to duplicate a placed PDF with the alt-key. If I open an older document that contains such duplicated (linked) PDFs then it crashes, too. If I do the same with a JPG image it doesn't crash. So I think there is a problem with placing, embedding/linking PDFs within this version of AP. For the crash test I simply used a X3-PDF I made from within AP and placed it again. On the duplicate+move with the alt-key it rumbles away ... PS: Strange, within the placed PDF the preview of the file in AP sometimes disapears. See the AP crash-document with the placed file - no preview on my side. PPS: The preview-mode (^w) should be available in AD, too - it is really, really helpfull! PPPS: Tried in on different iMacs with macos 10.13.6 and the lates AP. Testfile AP crash.afpub Testfile AP crash X3.pdf
  5. Hi Chris, I try to attach some very simple files when I arrive at the home office later on.
  6. Auto-upgraded to the latest .162-version. Documents with placed PDF are crashing now constantly. New documents are also crashing most times when placing any random PDF (X-1 and X-3 from Indesign or Illustrator, Word-exported PDF, ...). I also tried to reset the preferences, but no success. Under the previous version it worked for me and tehre where no crashes. Is threre something specific to (placed) PDFs in this version or anything I can do as workaround? I attached a crash-log. PS: using Designer to place PDFs just works. Affinity Publisher Beta_2018-11-08-234637_Markus-iMac.crash.7z
  7. AD 1.61 Mac: If I drag a guideline from the rulers to the document, no measurement/position is shown at the guideline or the tranformation panel. If the guideline is dropped onto the artboard/page and dragged again from there, it shows it's positon correctly directly at the guidline -> see attached screenshot. It would be very helpfull if it works directly from the rulers, too :-)
  8. Thanks for the reply stokerg, I musst have overlooked that post :-( Anyway this is no good news. But I mostly can live with it due I make most of the documents by myself. But sometimes I got documents by customers, and surely I got PDF from them, with exotical fonts used (embedded/subsetted). So I tried a little test: I used a font in a Designer document and saved it as designer and X3 document - afterwards I deactivated the font and made a new document. I placed the PDF an the font was replaced by a default without any warning, so if I didn't know what font and where used I got no change to see the difference (especially if the PDF have more pages). If I placed the Designer document it bravely asked my (one time) about the missing font. That ist a great source of mistakes. In Designer it might not to bad, but Dave wrote that Publisher 1.x also will not have the possibilities of passing (subsettet/embedded) fonts through and/or ask for replacing. But that is one of the very important things that are a must be. And (ok, nowadays I mostly use Mac) if I use the good old PagePlus 9 it works. Is there really no workaround and/or chance to solve this? If I need the full Acrobat suite to convert all fonts in a PDF to curves (for safety) that will be not helpfull. It is a long and sometimes hard way to develop a new software suite, so I keep the thumbs up - knowning you're doing the best you can. Thanks.
  9. Any news on the issue that Designer (and Photo) don't open the embedded (subsetted) fonts of PDF files and I have to ? Last discussion on this "missing feature" was in december 2016, followed by some posts regarding this in March 2017. It would be a great relief if this would be included in the next release, due 1.6 does also not support opening embeded/subsetted fonts when opening. Also it is not possible if a PDF with missing fonts ist placed to holde them as missing an search and replace them later.
  10. Please include the option to choose how the color of objects which handled that will be pasted from the clipboard into documents and the particular color profiles are different: Convert into the value of the document profile and preserve appearance or Preserve the values and asign the document profile (this option I'm missing) It would get rid of the problem that elements look different if copied into a document from another used a different color profile (for example: from a Generic Profile document into an ISO Coated prodile document the color will change if the color values are not preserved). PS: Sorry, I have only a german screenshot from Illustrator for example. But hopefully you understand what I mean.
  11. Thanks for the information, although it unfortunately doesn't solve my problem. I will request this as a feature. But I'm wondering how I should handle it best if I have different documents with different elements which I use for new projects and they had different profiles before - I can't embedd every object and it is to much work to recolor the objects correctly, to much room for forgetting an element ... any help here or is there no workaround? How does anyone out there handle this with different print partners/papers for example?
  12. Well, I need a clou here if I‘m just overlooking something or it is just currently not possible :) I made two different documents in Designer on my iMac: 1) CMYK with the Generic CMYK profile 2) CMYK und the ISO Coated v2 300% (ECI) Now, for example, if I create a red object with 100M 100Y in the Generic document and it looks like it should. If I copy it and paste it into the ISO Coated document it converts the color appropriate to the other profile: for now 2C 95M 83Y 6K and looks surely different. In other programms like Illustrator, ... I have the option to paste with converting into the profile or use the color values – and that is what I am missing. It just converts every time to the profile instead to use the correct values or even giving me the choice. If I place the Generic document (with the place command) into the ISO Coated document and double click the now embedded object, it opens and show me correct the 100M 100Y values inside the ISO Coated document. It correctly converts only if I export it to PDF with the document profile. I can switch the profile in the document prefs and select asign or convert, but all things pasted via the clipboard get always converted. Ist there an option the preserve the values? Thanks for any help in advance. :-)
