  1. Hi haakoo! Thanks a lot for the hint. Both ways do work fine for me. However, it is an extra step that shouldn't be needed as the reason for the limitation in the first place remains unclear. Best, Volker
  2. If you use Affinity Publisher stand-alone you won't have the chance to cut out images using the 'select brush'. However, if you have purchased Affinity Photo as well, a whole new set of functions is offered to you within Affinity Publisher (just switch to the Photo Persona - and almost all functions of Affinity Photo are available to you).
  3. Hi! It is easy to select multiple objects on a canvas and change their stroke colour/thickness using the stroke panel. However, it seems impossible to add a couple of more strokes via the appearance panel if more than one object is selected. That is a pitty in particular when you deal with text (converted to curves). Currently you have to add the desired strokes to each character individually which is a tedious and time consuming task. Perhaps this could be improved in a future update. Best, Volker
  4. @JonP Here is one old file (PDF v1.5) that causes my copy of APub to crash when trying to export to PDF/X4. Another PDF (v1.2) even causes APub to crash when exporting to PDF/X1 and PDF/X3. Unfortunately I can't share that one in public. Newsletter_Dummy_B1.pdf
  5. Yes, same here. No matter how simple or complex the placed PDF is - the moment APub calculates the expected file size it crashes without a warning or a report. However, the export using one of the other profiles seems to work.
  6. @Lagarto Thanks for looking into this issue and your explanation! Just to get this straight: When exporting to PDF using one of the the two presets (that do not include an ICC profile), the colour space set for the whole document (in this case sRGB) is not relevant? All that counts is the colour space of the device the PDF is displayed on? I know, it is not for you to answer but Serif: Why does the rasterized part of the document gets a colour space tag but the vector part not? To me it does not make too much sense...
  7. Hi there! I am struggling to get consistent colours among different elements in an APub document when exporting to PDF. Perhaps a bug with the PDF engine? Or is it just me... To reproduce the problem please follow these steps in Publisher Create a new document of any size, set the colour space to RGB/8 using the sRGB profile. Draw any shape with the fill colour set to rgb(231,35,105). Duplicate the shape and move it to another position on the same page, so that they don’t overlap. Create an inner shadow (fx) with the second shape. Lets say: 50% transparency, radius of 50px and offset of 20px. Export the page (or document) using the PDF preset „PDF digital (high quality)“. At least I end up with a PDF that displays both shapes in different colours (in Acrobat Pro 2017): the one without an inner shadow in bright magenta, the other one in dull magenta. This happens with the presets „digital (high quality)“ and „digital (small size)“. Other presets are not affected. I know, I could avoid the issue by clicking „integrate ICC profile“. But even without an ICC profile the colours are supposed to be displayed exactely the same within the same document. Any ideas? colour-mismatch.afpub colour-mismatch.pdf
  8. Hi Nathan R, do you mean by "downloading a font" that you have installed it as well? If it is installed correctly, the font list within Designer should show you the font (e.g. create a new document, select the art text tool or the frame text tool and Designer will display all available fonts in the context tool bar). If you can't fin "Orbitron" in there, something has gone wrong with the installation of that font. Is the font available with any other app? Best, Volker
  9. Fascinating! Now it works. Thanks a lot, GarryP! But why isn't the option turned on by default once you click on a text style? I mean, what sense does make a table of contents without page numbers? Cheers, Volker
  10. Hi there! Somehow I don't get the table of contents to work properly in a document... The headings are displayed but the page numbers are not. I am sure it is me doing something wrong. But what? In order to demonstrate my issue I've created a sample document (see below, made with APub It comprises a couple of articles with just two text styles each: one for the heading, one for the body copy. When I insert the toc in an empty text frame I get a list of all articels as expected. But no page numbers at all (see screenshot). I've tried to insert extra tab stops and changed their position but to no avail. Any ideas what I'm doing wrong here? Thanks, Volker toc-test.afpub
  11. Hi Gonzo, I've just exported some shapes to PNG. But the results looks totally fine at my end. Perhaps you set up your document initially at a low dpi (e.g. 72dpi) which causes low-res PNGs. In this case either change your document to 300dpi or increase the desired width/height in pixel in the export dialoge. Best, Volker
  12. Hi chapalote! That sounds strange. How does the assets panel look like now? Does it still list the categories created by you? Or is it just blank? In case you have ever exported your assets: Does a re-import work either on your desktop or laptop?
  13. To participate in the "beta program" is quite easy: Just go to the respective beta forum within this Affinity forum and download the latest beta release. It is called a "public customer beta". So, as long as you have purchased AD, AP or APub you can install and test any of the beta apps alongside with the retail version of the three apps. Just for your information: The retail version and the beta do not interfere. They are installed in different folders and don't share any individual settings. Serif has published some bug fixes already. But you need to install the respective beta app to test whether or not they solve the trouble for you.
  14. Hi marfbum, I'm afraid the support team won't be able to help as your description lags some vital information. In order to help you swifly please give them as many information as possible. Just follow the link Sean P posted above.
