    [By Design] Graphic Specs

    Pity on that. I think sizing should be included for those files. But, thanks for the answer. :-)
  2. Hello: Congratulations on the release of Publisher!!! I created several picture frames. One was for a photo and one was for an afdesign file. The photo shows the graphic specifications when selected, but the afdesign doesn't. Shouldn't it? Thanks, Peter

    Multi-Page Duplication of Existing PDF

    Hello Gabe: It's working now. Thanks, Peter
  4. Bug?: I opened a 18 page pdf (attached) in the latest version of Publisher without saving it. I selected pages 13, 14, and 15, clicked on the duplicate icon and only 14 and 15 duplicated. I tried this with several existing pdf documents and had the same issue. When I immediately saved the new document in native format, and tried duplicating the same pages, it worked correctly. Don't know if this matters to you or not. :-) Suggestion: When you click the icon to add a page you are asked where you want to add it "Before/After" and the page number. I'd like the same feature for duplication. For example, if I select pages 15, 16, and 17, and choose the duplicate icon, it would be nice to get a prompt where I want to add them...:-) Thanks!

  5. I have an Affinity Publisher document and would like to move multiple pages from another AP document or a pdf into it. It would be nice if I could drag a series of pages from one document into the other. The only way I can see adding the pages is manually, one at a time. Am I missing an easier way? Thanks
  6. Hello Darius: Are you using the latest beta to view your document?

    Image Cropping

    +1 to crop from selection
  8. Thanks, I'm using macOS! Yes, the problem is with the contrast. I have fairly good vision, but the difference still isn't very apparent. AI's highlights are subtle, but still much clearer. Please consider this a suggestion for improvement. :-)
  9. I started with the attached pdf since I didn't have access to the original ai file. Then, I imported the pdf into Affinity Designer. Tried to figure out the bleeds, then came to your forum comments where you mentioned that the beta added the ability to view bleeds. So, I downloaded the beta where I could view the bleed borders, but not the content. I figured out that if I copied and pasted one page at a time, I could view the content of the bleeds. It may simply be that I don't know Affinity Designer very well that was causing me problems. One other off topic issue I have with your products...and I now own, Designer, Photo, and will purchase Publisher...is when I choose a different tool, since the highlight color is so dark, I end up clicking several times on it thinking it hasn't been selected. :-( Thanks!

  10. I just dowloaded the beta version and see a blank rectangular outline around the page for the bleed space when I choose "view bleed." How do I view the actual content in the bleed? I just created a new document and got it to work. What could be happening with the old document? Never mind, I got it to work by copying the page and pasting it to a new document.:-) Thanks.

    Printing Issue

    I created a graphic in Photoshop 6.0 with text (looks fine in PS and Photo). Imported the graphic into Publisher. Saved it as pdf, looks fine, prints fine. Printed the document from Publisher, and the text "Classic" got jumbled. Skyhoundz Classic Certificates.pdf
  12. Please add an icon on each graphic that is missing in a document. While I am very grateful, you now have an alert in opening a document with a missing graphic, it would be very helpful, if the program would highlight any missing graphics with an icon to highlight them. As a user, I many not choose to update the missing graphics when I open a document, but I might want to after the document is open. I know I can use the Resource Manager to find them, but having a graphic representation for them as I go through my document would be nice. Thanks!

    Don't blame Affinity Publisher!

    You're welcome. Glad to hear it! When Adobe went to a subscription plan, I stopped supporting them. I've been limping along with the last non-subscription versions of Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, and Lightroom ever since, and they are getting less and less reliable. Been eagerly looking forward to Publisher as I was for the original InDesign. So glad to see it coming to fruition from a rumor. I've purchased Photo, Designer, and will do so with Publisher. Now, if Serif would just add a Lightroom replacement...:-)

    Don't blame Affinity Publisher!

    Would a newer version of ID would give you a more compatible pdf output for your use in converting to a friendlier DTP program? You could sign up for their subscription long enough to convert your books, then cancel.

    Resource Manager Bug and Link Suggestions

    While we can't know for sure what Serif is planning, I think it's pretty obvious. That would be like saying, there was no indication that Serif didn't want to go toe-to-toe with Adobe over Photoshop and Illustrator before they were released. You don't think Serif's Photo and Designer offers the same, or better, features at a lower price (and no subscription), than Adobe's Photoshop and Illustrator? Of course, having a lower price will appeal to a broader market than just professionals, so that is a plus for them too.
