  1. err... I don't know exactly what you want to know. I usually put up picture frames, arrange them and then fill them with photos. If I need text I put a textframe there and fill it anyway, after finishing my first yearbook in APub, I see in both ways (embedding and linking) some advantages. I think its just a personal thing which way you use photos and so on
  2. okay thats a possibility. I will see to it. Thanks a lot for your help
  3. yeah you're probably right. thought I don't understand why every new pcitures I drag into a frame is turned wrong way around, even if the original photo is oriented correct. Nevertheless I guess I didn't think through this far enough :-)
  4. yeah that would do the trick, but it is not how I like to do it, since I don't always want to use the "replace" dialog which pops up, but instead just drag & drop from the other app (xnview) from the second monitor, which is much faster and easier
  5. Hi there I've used the search function but didn't find anything about this, so I start a new topic I find this "issue" very annoying in Publisher, especially because it costs a lot of time. Perhaps I doing sth wrong or I miss a function/preference for this, so I just ask /explain I usually fill my Picture frames via drag&drop out of XnView or the Explorer (under Windows10), because I find this way the most comfortable. So I have a page setup f.e. with a lot of picture frames and I set all of them to "maximum scaled" and "middle". Usually I fill the first frame with a picture and rotate it in place, too. But when I copy this frame and drag a new photo in the copied frame, all is set to zero and the image is neither rotated right nor set to the right fitting. I find this very annoying, since it costs time and a lot of unnecessary clicks to adjust every single frame. Any suggestions? Thanks
  6. yes that would be a good work around. I use JPEGMini, which is awesome for such jobs. I give it a try Anyway, as soon all the pages are completely loaded (which takes a few minutes when you have linked photos), the publisher runs smooth. I used to use InDesign with photobook projects similar to this in count of pictures, and never good such issues when loading a document. (though I realize Publisher is in its first version while ID is in v14 or sth like this.) so probably this could be a posting for the bug or request area?
  7. there you have a point I not thought about. I'll try that, and make a copy before doing so thanks
  8. Hey there what is the better alternative handling a lot of photos in Publisher at the moment? I do a photo yearbook for my daughter with probably a few hundred photos (I dont know exactly yet how much it will be). I am not through with it yet (doing November at the moment) and I see that when you open the document, Publisher needs a lot of time to open all the pages (e.g. load the linked photos) In the meantime the PC reacts sluggish for minutes. When all is loaded there is no performance problem anymore, but during loading the document there is no working possible I wonder though, if it would be better if I embedd the photos instead of linking them... any suggestions to that? Thanks
  9. @Paul I guess you just have to go into publisher in your assets and click on the three small ines, there is an option for "import assets". click there and then go where the file is Its a guess, havent tried it yet ah and btw: you sure you arent in the beta version for customer accidently? (only if you have installe dthe beta along the release version) I had the issue with the asset earlier too, but then I recognized that windows opened up the document I clicked on in the BETA and not in the release version two different softwares and then you dont have the asset in the beta you have in the normal release version
  10. EDIT: forget it, I see that this should be fixed with the new beta. So I have to wait until the 1.7.2 Release update
  11. Well thats crap. 1. IDML was developed from Adobe for Adobe, not for a third company to "interchange" file format 2. not a serious oversight in my eyes, since I am pretty sure, that it is a really difficult (if ever possible) task to do that 100% 3. I seriously doubt Adobe would do that, if they were in this position
  12. yes, I understood that, thought it is not so comfortable and easy as in ID. But I am good with that. thanks for hte help
  13. Ok thanks, that would be a way yes, somekind of workaround. But the tool/function from InDesign is somewhat more comfortable, though not essential for working, but it makes it easier. In ID you can press the arrow keys to add (or substracts) more frames in a row or a column, after you are just pulled up the first frame (without yet placing it). Then you can adjust the spacing between them all (by holding space key I think) I wonder if APub can do this too and I just miss the function, or if its not in APub yet (which would bring me to place a feature request ) As I said its not essential to me, but I would like to have that feature. Its somewhat difficult to explain what I mean so I linked this video, which shows the function
  14. Hi there, first of all: you've really done a GREAT job with Publisher (also with Photo and Designer) and I love all your apps so far. That said now my question In Publisher, is there a possibility to create and place multiple photo frames (or frames) in rows and columns at once, including doing spacing between them? In InDesign that is possible and one of my favorite (and probabyl most used) feature, I really like to have (or see) in Publisher. Thanks for the help!!
  15. 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.
  16. 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
  17. 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!
  18. 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.
  19. 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)
  20. 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.
  21. 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
  22. 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
  23. 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)
