    PDF Imports

    Hi, You need the font installed, or to replace them in APub if the app can't reconize an installed font used in a document (because the name used in the PDF isn't the same as the one in the font).
  2. We can again group adjustment layers in group, and add masks to the group or the adjustments and they keep working. But if we add a Fill layer in this group, the adjustments don't work anymore. affinity_designer_icon.afphoto
  3. I don't think it's the angle, and you can try with more than 1 slash. But the problem will remain: at some point they'll need to repeat with the same amount of space between repetition.
  4. Grouping adjustments is usefull to have a clean layer panel easy to navigate with groups named accordingly to purpose, containing various layers and adjustments. It's an usual use of groups. Like adding mask to this group, that can contain a refined selection of a part of the general image. A fill layer is only a way to have a modifiable colour or gradient on a specific area. For you perhaps. But when groups of adjustments weren't working anymore on the layers below, we had a huge thread about it being a bug and a lot of us complained about broken workflow and unusable files created with the older rreleases.
  5. Did you tried with an exagerated adjustment to check if at least the export is different? Does the Contrast adjustment used in mode Multiply get a different export? (It's not how it should work, but perhaps you'll have a suitable result while we try to understand what happen… and how to fix it)
  6. Hi, I can active the Body option repeat with 2 PNG exported from AD: Bugged images: Non-bugged ones:
  7. Hi, Did you try Layer > Merge visible? It should give you a new layer with the final result you wan to export.
  8. Yes, I already complained about this, a "fileName" + "_modified" would be better than "<untitled>" (since it had a name!!!), having to search the original folder to get back the original file's name, copy the path to replace or save it as a new file at the same location is annoying. It's worst when you used a global search to open the file from the results (you didn't opened the folder). It's worst since AP/AD/APub always want to save in the last used folder instead of the file's folder (we end up with files saved in the wrong project's folders and need to move them).
  9. If you can remember and reproduce the steps to bug a curve yes, but it looks more like a bugged file. Perhaps Serif will be able to look at your file and understand where it come from.
  10. Yes, and like you, I didn't read about modifying them, and until now it was possible to importe Beta brushes to regular app. I've got the same error tryingto import in the regular app. And I had a bug creating some of them: I couldn't apply "repeat" instead of stretch with some PNG images exported from AD.
  11. Nice one! The shapes with black strokes don't seem to be in the same isometric plane s the coloured lines. I suspect it's a visual effect
  12. But if you try to select B from the main curve, it wont. Addind A to B "cured" the curve. If I create a new rectangle (on the same side above B) and substract it from the main curve, I've got the same problem as with substracting B. If I create a new one on the A side, it'll be substracted correctly.
  13. Yes, one of the curves is bugged, creating new rectangles and substracting work fine.
  14. You seems to download/save the preview of the file. You need to use the button or link that'll get you the real file once you've sign-up and paid for this file. You'll be able to open some Illustrator vector files with AD only if the file contains a PDF preview. You can try other sites providing vector files or try downloading other vector formats like EPS or SVG.
  15. Strange, but the brushes exported from the Bêta can't be imported in the regular AD. Try creating vector brushes with the option "New Textured Intensity Brush". The "New Textured Image Brush" will paint the image (black slash on a white bachkground), and is more usefull for real images to paint patterns. With transparent background: Here some versions made with non Bêta AD: (You'll have to adjust the spacing, and it's easier with the vector brushes since you can set it in pixels, than with the pixels brushes in percents. Perhaps for those using 2 slashes images would be better). Brushes_stitches2.afbrushes stitches_pixels_tests2.afbrushes Try to use inverted (white slash on black background) images for vector brushes, or black slash on transparent background for pixel brushes (New Intensity Brush option). On the brush panel, if the brush is a white pattern, you'll be able to use a colour when painting. If it's a black pattern, it'll paint in black (black pattern on white: it'll paint this black pattern on white).
  16. Hi @jordanf , If You want different spacing between "/", the best way is to export only one "/" and play with the spacing parameter of a repeating brush: I played with those to create brushes with approximate spacing for 300 DPI document. stiches_tests.afbrushes
  17. The cursor help select objects and right-click > Create Slice | Find in layer panel
  18. I have this same problem with APub Bêta, but the regular APub links properly to AD and AP.
  19. You need to contact DAUB support (there's an email on the right of the linked page). It seems you bought those brushes and tested them on Windows when they are made especially for iPad:
  20. Difficult to understan your problem without a file to do some test. When you select the table, the panel show proprieties of the first cell, nt the ones of the last cell where you had your cursor. I can modify cell A' s height if the cursor is in it.
  21. I forget "until now". And yes, I'd rather see strange and unwanted or too unusual behaviors limited. I'm the geekt one that know more about the apps we used, and I debug and correct error when people are in panic because they don't know why suddendly all is wrong. DTP apps are complexes and this one will be more complexe. Addind functionality is a best, but they should be limited to avoid confusion. A MP than become an simple usual object is a bug. Or we'll have too many point to check when modifying an object delete of modify all the pages with no reasons. Or when an item on a MP, hidden in a margin, and overflowing prevent to create a PDF, alerting about overflow. We espect a lot more features in the futur, but if each one have a loophole permitting strange behaviors or what we'll call later bugs if it's causing trouble, it'll be difficult to use them. People have a hard time when they can't remember at which point things went amiss… limiting some uses is the usual way for apps to avoid this. That's not because APub have strange MP with convoluted use that it's a must. We ask for more usefull function like global layers. Those can be used in workflow where each type of item is put on a specific layer (static items, images, text…). Or for different languages or conditionnal text. Why need to move up and down your MP? If you did your document's MP right, you don't need this, or only to move an object (not the full MP) if for once you need an image below the page numbers, for example. But dupplicating page numbers do the same in this case. MP size and page size don't need to be related? If they idn't work together, perhaps, but it's the same as buying clothes at least your size, it's more usefull. In which document I need to put a smaller MP on a bigger page? None. Usually they are larger (= bleed). About the different pages sizes: I used this for cover and spine + a larger one for the full cover (where I import a PDF of the previous pages side by side). I didn't thought about using it for different adds size. But my tests mainly pertain to book functionalities, since I can't use APub at work and don't always want to test it in my free time, that is sparse. @thomaso You example is not a MP use, but a symbol use for me. I'd rather have MP asking for pages of the same size, or automatically creating them, this would avoid needing a Page tool or modifying existing pages/spreads to suit the MP, since for now added pages' size are (seem) related to the 1st MP.
  22. Hi, Sorry, I don't know where to post about the forum. I checked the forum with the option "Content I Posted In", and today, each time I click on a link, I end up on the 1st page of the thread instead of the latest post. Is that normal? I'm used to check "Contents I follow", that send to the latest post of the thread and it seems more logical.
  23. You call them "French curves"? We call them "Perroquets" or "Pistolets à dessin" (drawing parrots/pistols) They are usefull to have nice curves and avoid bad angles when trying to join curves.
  24. Thanks, we won't have to apply again and again the colour to items because of this bug
