  1. Hi , I just downloaded the newest Beta, 1.70. 227 The realy great News for me is: Yeah... you can position your Textframes in the masterpages, and put the Text in the Paages !!! so you make your textframes layout inside the masterpages as expected, but the text now flexible in the Pages, this way you do no more need to position all Textframes manualy on each new page and can use masterpages for this.. But.. there are still some things i dont expect this way, and i am unsure if its a bug or not.. so please have a look at the screenshot and the explanations on it.. i created some masterpages as test. i positioned 2 Textframes in the master and linked them looked at the pages, and the setup was reflected fine on the pages, i had the masterpages aplied to.. filled in filler text in the pages WHICH WORKED FINE ........ YEAH GREAT STEP Forward .... came back to my masterpage, inserted a new Textframe in between the two allready existing ones, and linked the Textframe from left side to the secound new Textframe.. worked fine.. came back to usual pages, but now, the new link didnt apear here on the new pages... this seems to be wired.. it alway should reflect the changes on the masterpages. I also had to connect the last Textframes on my double sides, manualy to the first textframe on the following doublepage which has the same master aplied.. I am not sure if theres a way, and if it would be and advantage, if this would happen automatically.
  2. hmm.. no problem on my version...
  3. i get a easier information about guides... Right now i only can get precise informations about the position of guides when i use the guides manager.. But why not also using the Transform Palette ? when i hover over a guide, it could give me the position of a guide. Just as it does in indesign, when i cklick an guide.. Only thing i am not sure about is how i would do this, when a guide comes from a masterpage, and so is dotted.. in this case, it couldnt be selected in the page.. Never the less, get better information about guides would be appreciated..
  4. Hi, is there an easy way to get rid of styles in a final document, that i dont want anymore ? my problem is, in a looong document, i am not sure, which styles are not used anymore. So is there any easy way to flush all of the unused one away , fast and easey ?
  5. Hi Joachim.. Well thanks.. Originaly, i was asking for the textstyles.. I got a Document with about 70 pages, and about 20 Textstyles... But i am not sure if all of them are used.. so i just wanted to clean it up, and go on with only the used Textstyles that where left.. I originaly created the Document , from saving it out from another Document, where i had to use many more styles.. so to get all neded styles, this is a good way.. but now it seams you have to pay very good attention to not delete the wrong style.. so an automatic search for unused styles would be very good
  6. Joachim_L, I think i had taken the wrong name.. i asked for styles, not for textstyles.. Styles are something else... see the screenshot...
  7. Well MEB, if its not possible, we should move this to the wishlist section
  8. Ah.. Well maybe i get here something wrong.. what i mean are these styles.. The "Text Styles" they differ from document document..
  9. One Question about this.. When you import Text from other documents , using a Style with the same name, and exact same settings, as an allready existing Style, Does Publisher nowtice this , and doesnt double the style ? ore does it get confusing now.. Or, does warn for douplicated style names and so on.... How intelligent is this funktion ? Any experiances allready ?
  10. Yes.. You can force Publisher to prefere Linked... But "linking" seems to be wired in Publisher... The files still are stored inside of the document which leads to enormous size of the document if you save it , even when prefere linked is enabled and all images ... are "linked", because they are not realy linked.. Linked untill now only means.. that the still embeded files have to save a "link" to the original files, to notice, if they change.. in that case you can exchange them to the new files.. But still the data get stored to the document, which leads to big filesizes... What do you think... I think here the indesign concept is far better..
  11. Well as you said, you dont know the idml format ? This a is format that Indesign can export also to alow transfer of documents in differing indesign programms.. I used this some time to get documents from a more advanced indesign version to an older one, and it worked nearly perfect. So to say.. IDML would be enough as an import format. BUT !!!! We also need the possibility to export Publisher Formats to IDML.. this is very much needed, because very often we have to cooperate with the outer world.. and the outer World is dominated by evil So please also make export of idml possible.. I Think most of us wouldnt have considered to look at Affinity photo too, if it hadnt been able to import and also export psd files..
  12. I would like to see this too.. obvious a very smal but helpful feature
  13. Well i installed just the newest Beta of Affinity Photo .1.7 0231, and looked at the Changes.. Affinity even didnt mention it there i think.. But very very helpful and important for me was a very tiny shortcut missing... additiv in the Layermanager select pixelselections.. So Serif listens to us.. Shortcut is in German: STRG+Shift+ Leftmousebutton click.. / or : cmd+shift+ LMB klick.. this tiny shortcut will reduce selectiontimes on big documents with many masks where you all the time have to select many layers, (in Visualisation compositings of Architectural visualisations for example) , enormously.. So many many thanks.. But ! i cant find a way to deselect from a Selection.. this is still missing, maybe this could be implemented too ?

    first bug on 1.7 0 238.... ?

    Thats why we are here..
  15. Soo.. am i the first one one the new Beta to tell about a Bug ? Affinity Publisher Public Beta - 1.7.0.238 I cant open the hyperlinks Window / Tab, whatever it is.. when i use the Studio to aktivate it.. maybe i am looking in the wrong place ? Nothing seems to happen on cklicking the entry " hyperlinks"

    first bug on 1.7 0 238.... ?

    Hi Uwe.. thanks, i found this too, and in this moment i am looking at it... Well the way to aktivate the pannel for Hyperlinks, is to just press strg in german or cmd in english and meanwhile, doubleclicking affinity Photo to start it... in that case another windows pops up before the programm starts and asks you to reset everything.. after doing so, also the studio option for the hyperlink pannel works..

    Allright.. So i didnt miss this..
  20. Wow... great Steps to the right direction.. and hapy i could contribute with three of the bugs above that have been resolved..

    Yeeeesss Afinity.. You did it.. !!!

    Well.. This is just what you are forced to, if you make Architectural Visualisations.. You just have to combine complex parts of reality, but also have to delete, change, mask, and formost.. you have to try to stay flexible as long as you can, because architects develope their ideas, while you show them what rey realy have been drawing.. He.. you tiny .. renderfreak... make big windows... make smal windows... make them spare above three rows.. no.. go back to two... aaah.... and the tree in the backround.. could you just rotate the leaves in the lower part about 12 degree to south... why didnt you see this ... we just changed the stone.. we have made the whole building round... come on.. you still have the night to chane it... lol.. Tell you.. beeing a 3ds max guru... was a great time for years.. but i am glad now to be part of the it department and teach things like affinity.. 3d.. will stay with me for fun.

    Don´t understand...

    There have lately been some changes to the shortcuts toggle ... as written in the announcement for the actual beta: Changed tool shortcuts (optionally, default is off) to allow SHIFT to loop through grouped shortcuts (e.g. SHIFT+B to loop through brush tools) so do i get this right ? This function is optional, and i have to turn it on at first ? If so, how and where do i have to turn it on exactly, to test it ?
