  1. Sorry to take so long to reply, I have been super busy. the problem has disappeared since I wrote the post and I can't replicate it anymore. Maybe it was a Mac OS issues that a recent update fixed. As an aside, one of the things keeping me so busy was I have been preparing my primary printer to take my files produced with Affinity Publisher and they are impressed with the result so far. At first they were horrified, thinking I was asking them to use Microsoft Publisher!
  2. I had two text boxes grouped but only needed to move one of the boxes slightly to one side. I double clicked the group which let me move the box, but when I clicked off the group it slid back and then some. I tried it a few times, sometimes it slid back, other times no. It works as expected if I ungroup, make the move and then re-group.

    DNG import bug

    I have (one) client who sends me DBG files occasionally and this time I noticed chromic aberration on the white areas which makes the file unusable. I opened the DNG in Photoshop and it looked perfect, so I exported it from there to tif for the project. Is DNG a bit buggy in Photo?

    DNG import bug

    Well this is a good example why I switched to Affinity a couple years ago. You guys really work for our business.

    DNG import bug

    Sorry I guess I forget to mention it is a panorama. I did try and the chromic aberration adjustment but it didn't work out. (Chris B earlier found the same thing.) Might be just this file so i will keep an eye out if I get another form this client.
  6. Yesterday I had to resize a document in Publisher for a client and thought it would be the same as Photo and Designer... simply go to "resize document" but I couldn't find that. I had make a new document and copy and paste the info to that. Seems like I am missing something.
  7. Thanks guys, i posted that just now. I was confused because i was trying to use the way it is done in the other programs as they are so close in interface.
  8. I may found it, you have to go to the master page, right click and select spread properties. That seems to be where its hidden!
  9. If you open a new document, the setting I need are there. If you are already in a document you don't have access to those settings. The closest is file/document setup and this is all you get. I don't see a layout page setup button anywhere and it wasn't listed in a search I did. like I said I might just be missing something that's right in my face.

    DNG import bug

    I did that as well, sadly I had to open it photoshop to make it work and it opened with no problems. I don't have to work with DNG often, but when I do its for a client so I hope this gets sorted out! Thanks!

    DNG import bug

    I used photoshop to open the dng without any problems, then exported to tif for use in photo. I am just concerned in future, i wont have a working version of photoshop to use as a backup. I guess it could have been a problem with the camera, but knowing this client, it seems unlikely. He is the only person i know who uses the format at all. Its not a bad idea, just almost no one seems to have adopted it in the end.

    DNG import bug

    It is tiny corner of a larger file. It doesn't happen in photoshop, so I thought there might be something about the AP DNG import.
  14. The two buttons for Photo and Designer are there and I was wondering if on release of Publisher if they work. I have been curious about the integration. I know it's only days away and I'll know then, but my curiosity is getting the best of me!
  15. I am fine, the last heard it was going to work sometime in the beta version and thought that might have been delayed.
  16. I know this isn't the ideal solution fr all and has been mentioned elswhere. I have recently taken most of my idesign templates I use for various clients , exported them as PDF and opened them in Publisher, including multi page documents, and it did a VERY good job reformatting them to Publisher. Most needed zero after the fact tweaking. Fonts were correct, as were all the text and paragraph attributes. So I too would like indesign import/export functionality but I am finding it less crucial than I thought as I wait for Publisher to get an official release and start it's road as a viable Indiesgn replacement.
  17. I just had the same issue so it doesn't seem like ti was fixed yet.
  18. I have been working on a personal boo project with Publisher now for a while and overall, it went from OK to really liking some of the features and the experience. At the same time i was reviewing Quark 2018 and Indesign CC2018 so I've been busy! I am looking forward to the official release of Publisher and know, like the other Affinity products will take a little time to get truly up and running as new features are added. A few features I think are pretty important: Better find and replace options Indesign (idml) import - Quark 2018 includes this and while I know Affinity isn't including it right away - it's really important I work on a magazine which means many people on the same document, Quark does this well but Publisher should also. Layout programs often have an edit original feature for images, this might also be useful for text, writers and editors can be updating documents, it could save a lot of time and allow for more fluid workflows. More options for customizing Pdf exports for finicky printers Import text that automatically adds enough pages to accommodate and flows naturally. Hand making text columns and hand flowing the text brewer them on a long document is torturous. Indesign can do this in a very clunky way and Affinity would win over a lot if indesign book designers with a more elegant workflow. Those are just my note so far, working on a project has really let me get to know the software and how I'll end up using it much more than just playing with it now and then.
  19. Thanks for the link! We will see how the final version of publisher comes out, but this might be a good option if I switch to it for my main clients.
  20. I already changed them all in my document so I haven't re-tried that again. When i did originally it just did not do anything. Granted that was a couple updates ago. I did discover I could use preferences to change the entire document to use the quotes I wanted and that seemed to work when I imported new text. I have to say overall, the typography in Publisher is excellent right out of the gate.
  21. Sure, I use it in my work to find all the numbers in a document and replace the font. I know this sounds odd, but I have several clients who we use one font for text and another for numbers. last time I tried doing this in Publisher it couldn't happen. Also I will import a large text document with regular quotation marks but have to change them to double straight ones (my personal favourite) or to guillemets since here in Quebec we often have text in English and French. My needs may not be all that common I admit!
  22. It certainly is! Thanks for pointing that out to me! It's dead easy!

    TOC bug

    I have been using the beta to set up a book for Amazon as a practice test and to learn the software and noticed that when I deleted a chapter heading that was a text object and added the heading in the body text, both came up in the refreshed TOC. So ti seems like it remembered the deleted heading somehow.

    TOC bug

    Sorry did not see this until now. I did find the problem yesterday. There were copies of the chapter titles, invisible, on the page. I only found them them by moving everything off the page and then selecting everything and taxes appeared they were not visible when selecting everything before. They did delete and the problem went away. As it's a new app and I'm just playing with it to see what it can do, I wouldn't put it past me that I did some weird combo of things that couldn't be reproduced if I tried! Updating the the TOC works as it should now!
