  1. Thanks to the Serif team for all their hard work on Betas for Publisher, Designer and Photo. Also to all of you Beta testers out there! Have successfully pre-ordered Publisher and looking forward to Jun 19th (though I'm not ditching Pageplus or PhotoPlus YET cos after years of working with them I do still find some things easier with them, though not necessarily better! Pman
  2. Hi Meztli, Sorry to hear Beta 292 hasn't cured your problem. As to getting Affinity staff to comment, on the three occasions I've started a thread in the Bugs forum, someone has got back to me within a week, telling me that they have reported it.Bear in mind that the opening section of the Bugs forums gives clear instructions on steps to take when reporting a suspected bug (4 instructions and 7 bullet points and maybe they don't manage to pick up so quickly on a simple comment as your original post was [When I add a hyperlink (go to page type) on a master page, none of the pages using this master gets updated unless I re-apply the master. Once I re-apply the master, the links start working on all pages but it creates a Hyperlink for each page so I end up with hundreds of hyperlinks in the studio panel.] As a further thought have you tried resetting Publisher. Sometimes when you load a new version, a settings error in a previous build can carry over. T|o do a reset, hold down the CTRL key while booting Publisher until the Reset screen appears These top three are always pre-selected but you can select any of the list before clicking on the Clear button. Publisher will then reset to factory defaults on any ticked selections. This MIGHT solve your I too have loaded and used 1.7.0.2.292 and have encountered the crash that was outlined in red [Please note we have discovered an issue with this build whereby the application can crash after saving a document] by AdamW. I'm so glad that the warning was issued or I might have (almost!) had a heart attack thinking that I'd lost some precious work. Pman
  3. I can't see it as a fault because that is exactly what happens if you right click on an image frame (with image) and select Convert to Text Frame. Therefore it would seem that [as fde101 suggests] a useful shortcut. Additionally if you have the text tool selected then if you move the cursor over an image in a text frame the cursor changes to a PENTAGON with a T inside and if you left click while this cursor is over your image, you can draw a text frame and insert text . Once you happy with the text, style and position you could go to Layers tab, select and group the layers so that your image and text move together. Pman
  4. In my earlier reply I said "It would be great if one could produce a formula that could calculate which page you wanted to jump to". I had a little play and found that you could put a hyperlink on a page and enter in the hyperlink type Page target box a page number + 1 but as soon as you click OK that number becomes 4 (in this example). I thought then maybe a hyperlink could be seton a Master Page and in the target box enter the page number field + a number eg hoping that this would allow the document to jump forward 3 pages when viewed in PDF BUT this always creates a hyperlink to page 1. Somebody somewhere might be able to show a way to do that, then you could set hyperlinks on your master page(s) which would then let the user jump to Business I or Business II or Fitness etc from the first page of the week you're looking at Pman
  5. At a quick look at Before.pdf and After.pdf, my feeling is that Business I, Business II, Goals, Fitness and Budget would have to be on different pages for each week so I cannot see a way that they could be applied from a master. The months CAN be set as hyperlinks on a Master page and set to jump to the first page of a month. From there you would need to set a hyperlink for each week of that month, and then from each week you would need to set hyperlinks to Business I, Business II, Goals, Fitness and Budget for that week. Now by my reckoning, that would mean at least 52 * 5 hyperlinks that would need to be manually set. Like Old Bruce, I've done a roughout, for Jan to March, with only links for Business I and Business II set up manually. Months can be jumped to from either the cover or any open page and these were set as hyperlinks on Master Pages to the appropriate page representing the first day of the month. For January Bus I is on page 2 and Bus 2 is on page 4.To get from Bus I page 2 to Bus 2 (page 4) , I had to set hyperlink from Bus 2 text Page 2 to Page 4, then a hyperlink from Bus 1 page 4 to jump back to page 2. This has to be done for each month. Here is my trial Planner.pdf which shows the links working. The actual Publisher file is here trial planner.afpub and it does include some anchors which I originally used but realised it was easier and better to simply set hyperlinks to jump to pages. Is this the sort of thing you are trying to achieve? It would be great if one could produce a formula that could calculate which page you wanted to jump to so that if you were on the first week of January and wanted to go to Fitness for that week, then clicking on a symbol (such as one of your red squares) would jump forward to Fitness Pman
  6. Just to add that Beta icons are NOT the same as the actual program icons so since Publisher is still only in beta stage, we (ie those outside of Serif!) do not yet know what the final icon for Affinity Publisher Full version will be, but an educated guess is that it will be triangular just as Affinity Designer and Affinity Photo are whereas Beta versions are square Pman
  7. Hi, Going back to the start of this thread about the size of Beta 1.7.0.270 being (on my Windows system 375,237kb) version 1.7.0.283 is also 375,237 kb though it hasn't got any major changes, just fixes to some stability issues and my download took just 6 minutes. Interesting to me is the final part of the version numbers which would indicate how many times it was re-written between published updates! Update to 1.7.0.283 went seamlessly for me Pman Windows 10 64 Bit Home Edition, Affinity Publisher Beta 1.7.0.283, Affinity Designer Customer Beta 1.7.0.258. Affinity Photo Customer Beta 1.7.0.258

    TOC spacing issue

    Hi gumbo23, I don't quite know why your page numbers are being moved down 1 line with your reduction of width shown. I have found that that only occurs in my table of contents when the text frame is reduced in width to LESS THAN THE WIDTH OF THE TEXT as shown in these three examples Original TOC in text frame TOC text frame width reduced TOC text frame reduced to less than text length. Perhaps someone more expert than me could suggest a remedy for you. Pman
  9. I can also state that I have no problem linking text frames in the way Kdog3682 wanted -> and I have a booklet of 32 pages with a total of 78 linked text frames without any crash occurring. As garretm30 requested earlier could you attach a document with the layout you are having trouble with and also which beta you are using? Hers is my publication shown above linked text frames.afpub Pman
  10. Hi, Following my earlier comment about reporting a possible bug, at first I couldn't replicate getting extra hyperlinks appearing. Here I've got a 20 page spread with just two hyperlinks on the Master Page yet every page has a 2 working hyperlinks on it when exported as PDF for Web Adding extra pages made no difference, there were still just 2 hyperlinks in Hyperlinks Studio One link was my name simply positioned on a filled circle and I simply selected my name when setting up the Pman hyperlink, and the other was simply text at the foot of the page. However I then thought I'd group my name and the circle so that I could easily move them together. Now when I selected this group and set is as a hyperlink source, i) it was now simply called Hyperlink 1 and ii) when I added more pages, the same number of extra hyperlinks appeared on Hyperlinks Studio tab. I have now reported this as a possible bug. My conclusion would be [until Serif have found a solution to links from objects being replicated) set up your spread to more pages than you would need, set your hyperlinks up on your Master Page/s and then after completing your work, delete your blank pages (or leave one or two in case you have to add a a little extra), then you will have minimal number of hyperlinks. Pman
  11. Hi Mr K et al, At first I was puzzled as to why you had more hyperlinks than I did when I tried putting two hyperlinks on a Master Page, attached to a 10 page spread, so I tried again by setting up a 20 page spread with a common master. Once I'd added 2 hyperlinks on the Master, I still got only the two hyperlinks showing in the Hyperlinks Studio tab and on publishing the spread to PDF, the hyperlinks on all pages worked yet only 2 showed on Hyperlinks Studio tab UNTIL I added more pages. As soon as more pages are added then that number of hyperlinks is added to Hyperlinks Studio. Deleting those new pages reduced the number of hyperlinks back to my original 2. It would seem that you would be better to set up your spread with more pages than you know you would want and then to delete all the blank pages before you publish. I will report my findings on this as a possible bug. Pman
  12. Hi Mr K, on closer examination of your Credenza Plan, you'd actually need two master pages, one for the first page where your logo is larger and in a different place and there is no web address at the bottom, and then the second for the rest of the pages. However, this still means that you'd only need to set three hyperlinks for the whole spread. Pman
  13. Mr K, This may solve part of your problem - I have found that you could put your Logo on the Master Page and set a hyperlink to your URL, then you could put your web address on the bottom left of your Master Page and set a hyperlink there. If you select No Style while setting the hyperlink the text will NOT turn blue. These hyperlinks become active on every page of your spread. Therefore on your Credenza Plans for example you would no longer have to set a hyperlink to your logo and your web address on each page, therefore reducing the number of hyperlinks from 20 to just two! as indicated here It doesn't help solve the problem of seeing if an object is hyperlinked or not but you'd be working with a lot less, and you'd only have to check these on your master page. I have tested out this idea and it works, one master page with hyperlinks which then work on every page in the spread Love your web site by the way so hope this will make it more successful Pman This information may help others who have wondered if a hyperlink can be set on a Master Page
  14. Hi Mr K , Your original question was about showing text AND objects. In my earlier reply I hadn't found out how to apply a hyperlink to an object. Since then I have done that to a simple shape (a triangle) by selecting it, clicking on Add Hyperlink from Hyperlink Tab, selecting as URL and pasting the URL in the box which opens. As you say , there is no way to see that that AN OBJECT is hyperlinked. There again, unless you are going to tell the reader to click on that object, how will they know it is going to be a hyperlink or where it will potentially take them?. I've attached the relevant PDF file to show that the link in the triangle works. hyperlinks.pdf Pman
  15. Hi, I've been 'playing' with hyperlinks for a few hours now. To answer your question about showing what text or object has your hyperlinks attached - it seems that you cannot put an anchor (the point to which a hyperlink will jump) onto an object but if you right-click an object and select Convert to Text Frame, then you can select this text frame and select Text -- Interactive -- Insert Anchor. As Walt Farrel has said, if you create a hyperlink then the hyperlink will be shown as Blue (CMYK values C 88 M 77 Y 0 K 0).If you select Text menu ---Interactive -- Show Anchors OR Text Menu -- Show Special Characters and also Show Fields then your ANCHORS will be displayed as blue anchor symbol and the Double S (or End of Section ) will also be displayed. This image shows i) an Anchor in text, ii) A hyperlink which would return the reader to Page 1 and iii) a cloud converted to a text frame and then an Anchor placed in it. These two anchors are on Page 4 of my spread with the hyperlinks on Page 1 This image shows Hyperlinks tab, opened from View -- Studio -- Hyperlinks. When I first loaded beta 249, that didn't work so I was forced to do a reset (Hold down the Control key while starting Publisher and then when the reset screen appears, tick the top three items before selecting Clear) and then it became operational. From this you can, as Old Bruce has said, select a hyperlink and then click on the Bottom Left icon to go to the Source (or start ) of the hyperlink. Since these terms are used in Publisher, can we use Source as the point at which you want the hyperlink to operate from (ie when clicked it will jump FROM that point to a Page, to an Anchor or to a URL) (THE SOURCE WILL BECOME BLUE once made) and an Anchor is a specific point in a spread that the hyperlink will jump TO when selected? Hope this helps you and finally here is the PDF file I generated whilst playing. In two text frames I converted from shapes, I actually put text in BEFORE finding you only needed to convert to text frame and then simply add an Anchor. hyperlinks.pdf Pman
