    Wacom shortcuts?

    hey there I am using a Wacom Intuos Pro for editing. but usually I only use the pen with the tablet on the right hand. I dont use the keys and wheel of the wacom often, instead I have bought and configured me a Shuttle Pro Contour Pad for the left hand and do the most preferences there (like brush size and so on). I found that easier thtan using ther wacom for that.
  2. okay thanks, that would do the trick, thought I don't find it as intuitive like the possibility in ID where you can add and adjust more frames right when you do a new one. But then APub is in Beta and perhaps such advanced feature will come later. Nevertheless thank you, that tipp will help me so far
  3. In InDesign you can - with the arrows keys - add more picture frames when using the picture frame tool. Like three frames in a rwo and two down. you can even adjust teh space between the several frames. Is there a way to do exactyl that in APub? I've searched this forum for an answer as well as google and I searched inside APub, but didnt find a simialr function. Possible is, that I oversea it, but any help would be nice. Thank you!
  4. I guess - if ever - it isnt priority on the list of features to integrate book cover templates in APub. In fact, apps like InDesign doesnt have them too, but the tools are fine to make your own cover and layout templates and then save them as assets for future use. So I suggest you sit down and do some cover template on your own, good way is to make a screenshot from one of those tools you mentioned and import the picture into APub and then build your design on that, when you dont know how to do it completely by yourself.
  5. Great. I've searched a lot to find this feature. that helped me. Thanks
  6. no problems so far with the installation. Thanks for the update.
  7. okay thanks then I misunderstood how ID handles the layers. Thanks for your adive (oh und du hättest mir das in Deutsch erklären können, meine Muttersprache)
  8. hmm okay, perhaps I might got something wrong with that. But why is it then that page 1-2 of my latest project in InDesign has a wholly different layer set than pages 3-4 (always double pages)? and pages 5-6 have another layer set and so on and so forth? I have screenshots attached of the two pages. Its in german language but "Ebenen" are layers in german language Dont get me wrong, I dont want speak against you, just want to understand where I am thinking wrong with InDesign layers.
  9. Well, InDesign uses layers too for the objects and it also uses an own layer set for each page, if I remember right. So I dont see the problem with that rather in my opinion it is good to give each page own layer, since when I have a book with a lot of pages, putting everything in one layer structure could be quite confusing the mopre pages are in the layout
  10. I just tested a bit around wit APub now and I am very excited about it. Surely it is Beta state and the software has some way to go, but this first version shows good enough what path it will go and I think one can see, that it is (or will be in the near future) a great software (like AP and AD). At this moment, probabyl it depends a bit n what projects you do with it, if you can switch from ID to it, but for me it is good enough to try so. Just wanted to thanks Serif for the work
  11. Well... isnt that in InDesign the same? When I place a new object on my working table it will be added as a layer (in the layers tab)
  12. just installed it, first look is good. I dont have the time to play around today, but will do soon. Thanks for making it happen
  13. one of the really features I need is c&p vectors from Designer to InDesign (as long as there is no Affinity Publisher avaible). Can't understand why Serif doesnt include such a function, can't be so difficult.
