  1. On exporting a press ready PDF from publisher, my placed afphoto image is showing at a very low resolution when I open the generated PDF file. If I use png exported from the same afphoto it's okay and sharp. What is strange: If I make in the afphoto the upper lying group (that is set to invisible) - that covers only part of the image - in the afphoto image visible, then the whole pdf is sharp, too, if I make it invisible, every part of the placed afphoto in pdf is blurry. I found out: This occurs only if the placed afphoto image is set to 72 DPI - no matter that the pixel size is sufficient, as it shows - in Resource Manager - a "placed DPI" of 560dpi. I reproduced the same with Photoshop and Indesign (CS4) and it worked well as I am used to, even if the psd-file is set to 72 dpi. Only the pixel-size matters. That's what I expect.
  2. +1 I like this feature in InDesign want it in AP too
  3. I'm sooooo sorry, but I liked the former icons more than the new ones. The new ones seem to be too bulky or dowdy in comparison to all other software icons.
  4. Yes, Walt, but that cannot be the solution and cannot be the style for Affinity publisher to deal with the issue. I dream to have a much better software with Affinity publisher.
  5. Linked Resources (other afpub, pdf and images) seem to be linked with absolute path? They should be linked with only relative path. It's necessary to be able to move the afpub document with subfolders for assets, ... to another place and easily keep the links. I don't want to be obliged to reassign it at all if the relative structure is consistent. This product should get better than indd. There, you have to reassign one file and it looks for the oher missing links in the same folder and recognizes it. I dream to have a much better software with Affinity publisher.
  6. I admit, you're right as I now understand what you mean with "global layers". I thought, this sort of layer would literally not be "global" but rather local. But Layers that can group oher Layers already exist. So why not add the ability place guides in a layer, Guides that inherently are not to be printed, but by switching the Layers' visibility on and off, you could exactly chose, which guides or guides groups you want o use.
  7. Walt, I have to say: you're right. of course, it's the same. And it's not my first choice to work with Explorer. Waiting for an Affinity DAM Tool.
  8. Nice workaround, haakoo, I also thought about it, but seems to be two steps too much. I like optimizing the workflow. Dragging and dropping from XNView is a good idea, but still the same problem with initial size? Or not? Do we have to wait for an Affinity DAM Tool?
  9. I dont' like the Workflow to chose an image, that is to be placed, from the "open dialog" of the OS. Chosing the Image works much more better in Windows Explorer (in case of Windows OS). But if you do so, th image opens in really big scaled size (very often multiple the size of the document canvas) and you have to shrink it. You could instead use the same, sort of size-predefining, equivalent to the "Place image tool". See the attached video. Thanks a lot!!!!! suggestion_04.mp4
  10. Has nothing to do with global Layers. Just simple Layers ... like in indd
  11. Hi MEB, here I have Proposal for the ability to lock guides by assigning them to layers, not to pages. The "lock guides" button disappeared since the latest beta. I really miss the function!!!!!!! Of course you could place your guides in a Master page. But if you need different guides for different pages of a brochure, you would have to set up many master pages, what makes no sense, I think. At present version, you can place guides for the Page. But now you can't lock them anymore. That's rater not so good. It would be a better solution if you would be able to place guides in a layer. So, who wants, could lock the layer(s) in which the guides are placed. (That is how it is soved in InDesign and it's really helpful.)
  12. It would be a great help, if colour coding of layers coud be better visible. For example like this:

  14. Epub Export would be very good and automatic linking between Text frames between the pages If you import, let's say, 300 pages, you wouldn't want to link the Text frames all manually!!
