  1. I need help with splitting it into three with different background colours. I have already tried text frame but you can only set one background colour for it. Thanks in advance.

    Sections within Publisher

    Yes, I did think of that myself but wondered if there was an even way of doing it as drawing rectangles individually may not come out as even as say drawing a grid etc.
  3. Hello, I'd like to mask out this image so that the yellow, orange and red icons are only showing--no background. Please watch this video and help me as I'm a newbie. ScreenFlow.mp4
  4. Managed to do it with your help! Thanks guys.

    Merge Layers

    Well, this is certainly a good work around however what happens if you want one element a different colour?
  6. Thanks! Mine was just above 1000 so it cannot be that surely. I have found by playing around though that it is significantly improve after switching off the tools highlights below
  7. Hello! I'm sad to report this issue has returned @Dan C. Any ideas?

    Glitch with Full screen mode

    Hello @JFisher The version I have installed is and there's no auto updates available but I will manual install now.
  9. Templates would be great. Just to learn how to use publisher if not anything else...
  10. Hello Dan, Thank you so much for getting back to me! Here are the specs on my Mac. I have exported all my settings and ready to do whatever necessary.. EDIT: Your suggestion of clearing user data seems to have solved it. It's going to be a right pain exporting all my settings again should it happen in the future.

    What does that mean? The map is made up of loads of different parts.

    That doesn't work if I draw a shape over all three separate map parts as only one of them will be covered by the shape I draw. I'm not sure you understand what I'm trying to do, despite my best efforts to explain it

    I've got myself really confused. Probably because I haven't played with Affinity Designer for a while. In the example below you can see that the "A" shape is snapped onto the map. The map itself is one image. In the video, as I explained the map is not one image but in three separate parts. What I want to do is make those 3 separate parts one so that I can snap shapes to the map as shown below. Hope that makes more sense.

    That's very frustrating! Thank you for your help.
  17. I recently brought Ultimate Map Pack: Global from metgraphics.net and upon zooming in it gets distorted. The creator of these maps says it is the lack of smart-scaling in the Affinity products. Because of this I cannot zoom into the area I require. Is there a way round this/am I missing something? Please help!!
  18. I would like to create something like this: https://cl.ly/r2Fj but I cannot find a way to create a table in Designer. Anyone able to help a guy out?!
  19. Hello, Would it be possible to have a Maps extension for Affinity, something like https://www.esri.com/software/maps-for-adobecc This would be amazing for my line of work, Weather Forecaster...
