    AD Updates

    Fair enough.
  2. How do I stop AD automatically from adding margins when I change a page from A4 to A3 when the original A4 had been selected not to have margins. It seems to default to adding margins. Ideally I would like to set up AD to default to 'no margins' at all regardless of changing page size.

    Whats the latest in resolving this very annoying problem?

    Wow! This is what I call 'feature creep'! I'll wait a little longer for any other responses and then put them altogether and submit to the wish list. It would have to be up to the developers to decide what could be done.

    Thtat's a good point. I'll add it to my suggestions. I do understand re making things more complicated but that is sometimes the nature of development. At the end of the day it would be the users choice, I have a digital camera that has a manual larger than my first car's manual but I only use the features that I need.

    Thanks for your suggestions and they sound OK. Where I said guides were fixed to objects, in my eyes it was a case of moving the object with the guides rather than moving guides with the object. I see this as helping me when I am producing orthographic drawings where I may want to move a drawn view to another position to so another view could be drawn near it. Your suggestion of a guide layer is a very useful. Perhaps it could be a default layer always present in the Layer tab. I'll wait to see if there any other responses before offering to the wish list of features. The colour of the guides would a default colour as well as a a user choice.

    Attached is a file for having 4 different types of guide lines that I may offer for the new features suggestions but first I would be interested in members comments. Guid lines.afdesign

    LOL Why didn't I think of that! Thanks.

    That's not so good. It would be useful to be able to set some locked guides (a different colour perhaps) whilst being able to use movable guides as well. Is this worth suggesting on the wish list?
  10. I think you've found a bug jackamus because when changing document size and margins not checked it will add them regardless of print dimension used. in Affinity Designer Beta 1.7 the A3 template has margins selected by default, unchecking them resizes the document without margins. 1.7 beta has the Preset option now so just create a document and call it A3 - No Margins and use that from then on.

    I'm glad to be of some 'positive' service as recently I have been a bit negative about AD.

    Should I report this as a bug even though AD1.7 has a preset for it?
  13. Is there a way to change the default 'Text box' font from Times to something else for all new documents? I hate Times!!!!

    QS outline

    Brilliant! I shall send this to my Kids!
  15. This has just started to show up when I draw a QS without a stroke around it. A red line shows up round the QS as though I had selected it but doesn't go away when I deselect it. Why?

    LOL! I'm 79 and put it down to old age and bad memory!

    Yep! Thanks.
  18. Through using a combination of Open Office and AD I have created a 28 page document but with one AD file name. Is there a way to turn this document into one multi-page printable document like a pdf?
  19. False alarm! I managed it.
  20. My next problem is how do I add extra pages? Can I duplicate any layer, rename it and remove the content to make way for new content?
  21. Hi Guys, The pdf conversion from multilayer artboards was successful. Until Ad Publisher becomes available then I will use AD to create a multipage doc for converting into a pdf.
  22. Correction! When I checked the layers they were already Artboards so I am now saving as a complete doc pdf. Hopefully this will be OK.
  23. Hi meb, I didn't get an email about this reply! Presumably I cannot use just any key as some of them are already used as shortcuts - is this correct? What keys can I use? Can I use a modifier key as well? I tried crtl and C but it doesn't appear to work. I also tried 'Q' but still nothing.
  24. Hi MEB I have attached the file with all the content removed. Artboard version.afdesign
