  1. I watched the Affinity Photo Making Magic video (loved it) How did he make the fur on the bunny?
  2. Thank for the link Dan, Oo! hair by hair! ouch
  3. I did find these but after importing they don't seem to show up in my brushes.
  4. Right now APub is focused more on finalizing the dead tree portion of the program. I am very excited to see the next step into digital. Hyper-links, Epub, as well as most of your suggestions. It is a process. I suggest you become a master of the current version and by then you will be up and running for version 2! I am thrilled that we got this much early than have to wait for the final. Happy Publishing.
  5. I am looking at making a comic (standard comic book size) as a test before I try out the real thing. But I am confused on how to do the page set up with trim and actual size. I have seen singe page sheets and double wide so that it has a fold. If you did the double-wide doesn't the center margin have to change size since the outside pages need to be bigger than the page at the centerfold? So I guess what I am asking can someone please make me a blank comic page (No panels) with the trim marks, and space for the header, page number etc? And can that also be used for the cover? Thanks for any help
  6. Thanks, William, I am seeing that they are 10–1/8 inches by 6–5/8 inches, or 25.7 centimeters by 16.8 centimeters. So I am guessing that it may be better to make this in Affinity Designer than Affinity Publisher?
  7. Are you sure APub has all the features and stable you need to make the switch? PagePlus is still a highly robust publisher. It may be wise to wait till the official release hits before you switch for business use.
  8. All these questions are for digital page creation for a printer. 1 What is the standard size sheet to work with to make comic books? ** 2 Looking at this article if I want my page to be 11x17 do I actually make my page larger so that it can be cut down to 11x17? If so what size do I make my document? Or if this all for hand-drawn do I just make my digital 11x17 with no bleed? https://www.printninja.com/printing-resource-center/file-setup/offset-printing-guidelines/file-setup-for-full-bleed-printing 3 Anyone know of a free download comic book template with the bleed and trim on it? No panels. Thanks **Aren't comic book pages printed double wide, and stapled down the middle? So why in most examples to I see them as a single frame/page?
  9. Exactly what I was looking for. Thanks guys
  10. Can Affinity make smart objects? My daughter wants to take a picture of clothing apparel and then add logos to them and have the logos show folds etc to make it look like it was the actual product. If so can you explain how or point to a tutorial? Thanks
  11. Sweet! Thanks for pointing that out dominik! Good eyes. +1
  12. Because at this point in the game they are ignoring it. Obviously Definition of ignore - refuse to take notice of or acknowledge. In the future, if they ever even put out a roadmap with this feature on it that will change the comment, but as of this second, the feature is ignored. It seems to be a very popular request, and it would be nice if Serif would simply reply one way or the other.
  13. Can't Adobe InDesign do ePub? QuarkXPress can. I never used Pageplus, but it says it can. Ultimate eBook Creator is cheap and made to create epub. So why is Affinity ignoring this feature? http://ultimateebookcreator.com/
  14. All the big name publishing program have epub, as well as many of the lesser ones. If you do not add it to the planning now it may never get added. Even the old Pageplus could export to epub. Sure leave out a feature that many people want and watch the lack of features in the reviews.
  15. Please add ePub. I am confused how you can have a publishing program without looking to the future of paperless documents. At this point, I do not think it is even on the todo list.
  16. Please, Please, Please. Add epub export.
  17. Who is the spokesperson for Affinity? I like his style. Also, does he have an additional role with Affinity or just act as the spokesman? ...Does he remind anyone else of a particular music contest show host? LOL
  18. Ka-Blam Template..jpg The page you requested does not exist
  19. I am a little confused about the more technical side of publishing programs, and how APub fits in. So my question is could APub be used to set up a graphic novel or comic book for print? In the past, I have use Clip Studio. Great for drawing and page setup, but the lettering was a little disappointing.
  20. @CartoonMike I am humbled by your extensive answer. RE: " To say it's (clip studio) lacking is like saying the Sun is just a tad hot. " - I actually laughed. RE: " So I had to go over each page, select the text and choose the right font, one by one " - and cried with you. sorry I chucked. This is one of the best most extensive answers I have ever got for any question that I have posted or read by anyone else. It was most appreciated.
  21. Hoping that is the same as their other programs. But wouldn't that be great if they put a sale price out the first week? Or even now, as a Beta buy.
  22. I am seeing a lot of major complaints the first day. You need to remember this is a beta, the same program we all have been begging for a release in any state. I have beta tested a lot of programs and you need to be in the right mindset. So just sit back and enjoy the ride. APub is really a pretty piece of software and already had some features better than InDesign. And you ever tried to put text along a path you know what I mean I hope the rest of you are having as much fun as me exploring APub!
  23. Ultimate Ebook Creator is nice. It has dynamic text wrap around photos and interactive text. A few nice exports too. You can get it on Amazon for $25. I have never tried Xara or the free Scribus Publisher.
