  1. @Gabe Attached is a reproducible file. This one, while I can't get it to 32gb of RAM like our internal reports, it shows how there is a serious bug with Affinity. Just opening this test file, it will lock up a computer and it's a 3mb PDF... Downloads.zip
  2. Hey Gabe, sorry for the late reply. We are creating reports and consultants have been sending us their reports in PDF format. We've had affinity import these pdfs into a master afpub file, so like 100+ pages of native content and 70/80 pages of just linked PDF pages. This is where the problems arise. It can happen as above (uneMule's) experience. To test, if you load any multipage PDFs into Affinity Publisher (over 100 pages it becomes most obvious) there is some sort of a memory leak + slowdown. The program bogs down so much that it is practically unusable. In the end we just create our content in Affinity Publisher and use Adobe Acrobat for merging in consultant PDFs and further editing as it handles 100+ pages perfectly and no memory leaks.
  3. Opening a 3mb Affinity pub file now....20gb of ram and 100% cpu for 30 mintes It's borked.
  4. With some documents, does anyone else hit a wall where after like 200 pages of linked content, Affinity gets stuck on 10gb+ of RAM, 25% CPU and just gets stuck on saving for hours. It doesn't crash, but it doesn't save or the UI doesn't change. The document is usable but unsavable when becomes too many pages.
  5. Hi I read that MSI files are available for educational users? I tried searching but we have a small office and NONE of our users can be bothered upgrading everytime there is a release as it's not automatic. Is an MSI available so we can integrate it into our software patch system?
  6. It turns out that what is happening is that with the Adobe ecosystem, one can save PDF's so that when it opens in PDF readers it opens at a certain view. ie in this case pages, side by side. The line drawn down the middle was happening because of this. Sorry for the confusion everyone! I just hope Affinity can get the option to save out PDF's with some "initial view" options as the screenshot above.
  7. Ok, so what's going on is that under Adobe's Publisher there is a set initial view for PDF options... See "Page Layout". Could Initial view tab like below be added to Affinity Publisher as a request? Thanks
  8. How do I fix this? It's not intuitive for the text to hit end of a textbox then spill out the side like this? How to keep the text to goto the next row and stay within the text box?
  9. missing font in document locate button doesn't do anything at all, so everytime a document opens the missing font appears and no way to manually find where it is oops should be affinity publisher
  10. As suspected that doesn't really work in an office. So everyone will have different default fonts. Devs didn't think about that one properly
  11. Is there seriously not a default font available in Affinity? "Default font" returns no search results in help.. I've taken over a document where people have been pasting text from emails, word etc and have ended up with this. There is no way to delete these extra fonts at all.
  12. No style doesn't work unfortunately https://affinity.help/photo/en-US.lproj/index.html?page=pages/Text/textStyles_remove.html?title=Removing text styles Affinity resets the font to a missing font for some reason and will not change the font size, so othe whole document is a mix and I've been going around manually fixing everything which is a nightmare
  13. Whenever I paste without formatting in a document, it reverts back to a missing font. Which text style is the default for the document? In word it's normal. I have the "base" text style set to use arial but I can't work out what text style controls the defualt font + size. Sorry for such a basic questions.
  14. https://affinity.serif.com/en-us/tutorials/publisher/desktop/video/337305725/ In this video he talks about local adjustments. (when text has the + sign next to the paragraph style or font style) But how do you remove the plus and get the text to use the text style rules? Sorry, it's just not clear to me in looking through the help docs or UI
  15. Thanks, however the requirements must mean that there are two facing pages with a line down the middle indicating the two pages. Sorry, the red squares are different sizes as they are screen-captured mark ups censoring the pages as it's a tender document. However yes, they are indicating separate pages. I'm not sure how to explain it but basically when I have a document setup as "facing pages", inside Affinity Publisher it is correctly displaying two pages side by side. However when Affinity Publisher exports, it's no longer two pages side by side but double page side by side. You can see this because all PDF readers like Adobe, Foxit etc are displaying the PDF like this (double page side by side) I have been told that Adobe doesn't do this, so I believe Affinity may need a new export feature that it exports facing pages as exactly that - two pages side by side instead of double pages side by side as above.
