  1. It's more complexe scripts and API to archive documents by pages and more, with a huge database to find authors of illustrations or articles, etc. and interface to browse and command, if you've got the rights to, the elements you want to reuse. No LR or Bridge there.

    Help Wanted

    For example: if you search particle and explosion, you can find https://www.brusheezy.com/free/particle-explosion Don't forget to check the proprieties of the brushes. If you only use a mouse, you'll need to modify settings using incination or pressure.

    You can import ABR brushes (brushes for Photoshop) in AD Bêta and AP Bêta. (A bug prevent us to do it in the non-bêta applications, but it'll be corrected soon). If you need then in the regular applications (bon-bêta), you'll need to import them in a Bêta version, and export them from this app to AFBRUSHES files. You will be able to import those AFBRUSHES files in the non-bêta apps. There's a lot of ABR brushes for free, and you can test them. Some will behave as expected in Photoshop, some other no, since the brush engines are different. But it give a lot of options.
  4. Creó un documento a 300 DPI, pero algunas de sus imágenes tienen una resolución más baja, es normal que estén pixeladas. ---- You created a document at 300 DPI, but some of your images are at a lower resolution, that's normal they are pixellated.
  5. It was my advice earlier because I do it
  6. @firstdefence The second one is too much. There's no more volume on the neck. And if there are huge modifications, people will see it or wondering why the portrait is wrong.
  7. I would only diminish the highlights and shadows of the tendon and the wrinkles in the neck, not erase anything. The focus would stay on the faces. Using inpainting, clone tool, and some adjustements (white balance for warmer tones).

    PDF import broken

    Did you uncheck those options while importing the PDF?
  9. Hi, It's not possible, and it'll probably have more an import of IDML files than INDD files, since XML (what IDML files are made of), is simpler to understand and convert to some other file format. For now, you'll have to export to PDF and import those in APub, and to try different ways to export/copy your text or your styles in APub. You'll find some tips here:
  10. Mobile devices aren't able to use full HTML and CSS functionalities, it seems the only mobile browsers able to show tooltips is the Opera one on Android devices and Android emulators. Seems you need to complain to Apple for this. (Firefox on Android isn't able too, I didn't check the other available browser on Android).
  11. Please, if you use those acronyms for something else, use full names instead, it's help people here that are more familiar with their own language acronyms (and we have a lot too), and aren't with other languages' ones.
  12. It would be easier not to use inDesign if you don't know it. On the long run, it's better to use it and learn to use it There's no reason to use Photoshop or AP for a magazine cover. It should be in the magazine's template, with all the other pages of the magazine. Or in a separate file if a different paper is used for the cover, but at least the 4 pages of the cover, since they'll be printed as a whole. Usually all the pages of a magazine are in a same file. Some magazine are made of different files, but it's usually for different people to work on, or because some parts can be made and validated earlier, and this avoid possible errors or modifications. If you're in a rush, you'd better use the easiest way for now, and work later to have a nice template for APub if that's the app you'll use later. If you've got ID, you can use it to export the master pages as PDF to import them in APub. You can copy-paste text in Word or LibreOffice, export them as RTF or .DOC to import them in later in APub (you'll have to check and correct some differences or errors). You can use those scripts to list and export all the inDesign paragraph/character styles of a document: Scripts_list_styles.zip
  13. If you were able to import an IDML file (XML exported document from inDesign, it would be a full APub document with as much imported options as possible like Paragraph and Character Styles, Master Pages…). If you open a PDF, you'll only have the pages, and some text with the proprieties used in the original document, but you'll have to create the styles, organize them and their dependencies (if a style is based on another one for example). You won't have the different master pages, and sometimes there are more master pages than the pages of the magazine, for different purposes, versions or options (pages with 1 picture or more, or variation with different text columns, different text frames depending of the content…). Usually, a template contains more than the visible pages, since different cases were thought ahead at the creation process. NB. I don't buy templates, perhaps there's nothing more that what is on the pages… It's like opening a flattened image: you can imagine it's made of different images (background, people, etc.) and different adjustement layers, but you can't be sure unless you're able to open the original file with all the layers. If you only need few modifications before exporting the final result, it's handy and a good workaround if you can't modify the original file. If you need it as a template for a new project and you'll use it for many issues, like a magazine, you'll have to create all the styles (paragraph and character), the global swatch (Pantone?) and apply them to the different parts that should use them... Check text frames if they need to respect the column grid, and if there's flowing text, etc. It's better than using a paper magazine as example and creating all the document from scratch in APub, but you'll have a good amount of work if you want to make it a good template. This look like a PSD file with a smart object (those are rasterized when opened in AD or AP). Smart objects can be imported files, that'll be used as vector object in Photoshop, and keep the trasformations as special informations. Like in the imported AP/AD files (B) imported in another AD/AP file (A), you can edit them: it should open a new windows in your app with the original imported file (file B), and modifications applied to this document and saved will be visible in the other one (file A). But PSD smart objects only work with Photoshop, the same way as the Affinity smart object only work in Affinity files. For example, with this cover: you have a smart object of the cover in the file. If you open it in Photoshop and click on this smart object, it'll open a rectangular file that contains the cover without modification. You would be able to modify (i.e. using red instead of blue in the cover) of put another image in this file. Once the smart object saved, it would be visible on the template:
  14. That's a feature we miss in AP and AD and that prevent using those apps with serious illustrations, when we need to be able to work on those extra channel or check them. On various works, like illustrations for different books using the same cartoon characters, for example, we need to use and check Pantones, and the simplest way is to do this with channels. Exporting to PDF to check with Adobe Reader isn't an good workflow. It would be best to have a new personna or special channels for this. If fill layers were able to keep Pantone values, it would be a solution, but for now they convert to CMYN when exporting (transparency problem?).
