  1. Importing images Good workaround, cheers, but it's still time consuming and I would still like to see the feature. Numbering the artboards in the layers panel. If you have multiple artboards they can be difficult to organise and AD isn't clever enough to do it in any order. If each artboard was labelled 1-to-whatever in the layers panel, it would be easier to locate and 10 times faster to organise.
  2. I would like to see the following: The ability to import multiple images into one document whereby each image creates its own artboard The ability to select images in multiple artboards and have them manipulated together, but in their own artboard. For example, 10 images in 10 artboards, selecting align all to middle aligns each image to the middle of its own artboard Move backward/fwd/to front etc option for artboards. Artboards numbered. Thanks.
  3. Publisher is Affinity's version of InDesign if that helps?
  4. Sometimes my geometry > add process doesn't work. https://i.imgur.com/08I9veJ.gifv It seems to be doing this randomly. What am I doing wrong?
  5. Another vote for ShareX. Brilliant software. As for recording workflows of just a specific window, I use helpXplain https://www.helpandmanual.com/hx/. It records individual clicks and then puts them together like an animated flick book. The advantage to this is that you can remove (or add) any unwanted stages post production. It's been on offer for $49 (I think that actually ends today!), but the normal price is still only $99. EDIT: Probably useless for showcasing drawing software though. Sorry.
  6. Is there any chance we could have Visibility on the right-click menu? I'm aware if everyone got what they wanted here it would be about 85 screens long.
  7. I've got a question that is really about how to use AP properly rather than a problem. I use AD a lot, but my AP skills are very limited. I have a photo of someone in front of a stage. On the stage is some warning tape that I want to get rid of: I've isolated the person on another layer and used the healing brush to get so far: But this is as far as I can get without ruining it. Everything I do just seems to blur it. I can't get a clear line between the black and orange. I don't really know if I'm using the right tools. Maybe I should be using adjustment layers? Any help is appreciated.
  8. OK, reducing the dpi to 72 worked. It's a bit of an odd default. I would like to see at least a 'export to original size' option in a future release. Thanks for all your help. A pleasure as always.
  9. These are my settings: Do I manually need to change the DPI?
  10. Here it is in afdesign Draw Persona. I have added a red line which shows it is 213.7mm across. Here is the exported SVG. I have added the same line, but as you can see it shows as 890.5mm across. EDIT: What's even more confusing is I've literally copied and pasted that red line from the afdesign direct into the SVG with no modification and it fits perfectly.
  11. I'm exporting an afdesign file as an SVG for a machinist, but the export comes out just over 4 times bigger than the original. Any ideas?
  12. OK, fair enough. Just with all the options already included, for a DTP, I would have thought it would be one of the first things. Though I forget it's just a beta sometimes. Cheers.
  13. OK, cheers Mr W. Bit of a basic thing to leave out though, isn't it? How many people design documents that doesn't require text and images to flow with each other?
  14. I'm trying to add an image to my text flow in a table. Is this possible?
  15. Just a small request, but I like in AP and AD that you can right-click and have the paste options on the first menu that appears. In Publisher's case I would like Paste in Place, Paste without Format and Paste Special... It would also be nice to have the option of Paste in Place as default.
  16. I work for a company that produces various variations of tools. If I'm creating a bid document, for example, the only thing that changes is the tool name, some specifications, references and some images. Just changing this information on one page improves the workflow 10 fold.
  17. Are there plans to include Information text variables? In fact image variables would be amazing. Don't think even PagePlus does that?
  18. Is there a plan for one of these for Publisher? I find it useful on Designer and Photo so I don't end up repeating my 'unique' ideas.
  19. +1 I found PP as a result of the PDF designer. Incredibly, even today as a legacy program, nothing else even comes close to PP's abilities in this area.
  20. Ah, yes. They were all there in the Layers panel, but strangely only two had the Layer is exported check mark next to them. I selected the culprits and created a slice for them all which seemed to work. It's never done that before though; normally they are automatically checked/created. Not sure I've done anything different.
  21. I can't seem to export my artboards; they just don't show up in the Export persona. Not sure what I'm doing wrong. Just created a blank artboard (Artboard1) and that seems to work. Any ideas?
  22. Is there a plan to support PDF form creation similar to PagePlus?
  23. I'm guessing it's already being worked on as it was a strong feature of PagePlus.
  24. I am trying to create a hole in a shape using the Operations. When I create the hole using the Subtract operation, it changes the line weight of the hole to match the object it's subtracting from. For example: Does anyone know if I can I retain the line weight somehow?
