  1. Old Bruce and I seem to have posted at the same time, I didn't see your post before I answered. But your thought is correct, Old Bruce: I want it to look like the handwriting is on the orange rectangle. v_kyr's suggestion solved my problem.
  2. I'm about creating a book cover. The background is a one coloured frame and I want some handwritten text in a tif-file showing through the coloured frame on the front. How do I achieve that? I've attached a testfile where I tried this: I lowered the opacity in the frame letting handwritten text showing through and then tried to alter the colour in the frame to match the original colour, showing in the frame to the left (back side of the cover). But it's difficult to get the original colour. There must be another way of doing this. How can I preserve the original colour? Geir omslag_test.afpub
  3. I have always had my document units set to millimeters and font size to points. Now suddenly my AffPub only shows either mm or point. Thus if doc unit is set to mm, then font size is in mm. And if doc unit is point, then font is point. Not possible to separate, as far as I can find. An older beta-version shows doc units in mm and font in points, as expected ( Anybody knows how to get back mm for document units and point for font size? AffPub Geir
  4. Thank you so much Lagarto for your explanations and suggestions. As this print process har become urgent, I go for your last suggestion, not including color profile in the CMYK images. That is quick and with a few tests seem to give perfect results. You saved my day, thanks again Lagarto. Regards Geir
  5. I'm about printing a book made in Publisher. The printer asks me to lower the colour coverage in some pictures, below 300 %. One image is especially problematic. In Photoshop it shows something like 155-160 % in a black area, shown in the red circle in the attached image file (the image is only a cut-out of a bigger image). When I place this image on a page in Affinity publisher and export this page to PDF the same area in the PDF file shows something like 330 % in the same area. I thought the colour coverage in the image file would correspond to the coverage in PDF file, but I've obviously got it wrong. But what is my mistake? Thanks for any help (or explanation).

  6. I have experienced a strange thing sometimes happening with picture frames. The situation: I have text in 2 columns and place a picture frame with a text frame attached (grouped) for image caption. When placing the frames where I want in one column suddenly part of the text in the neighbouring column is pushed to the next page. If I move the grouped frames to the other column, I get the text back to normal. I have text wrapping set to tight for both the picture frame and the text frame but distance from text is set to 0. I attach a APub file of just 2 pages, the picture is now in the left column and everything is correct. If I move the picture over to the right column, part of the text in the left column moves to page 2. Hope somebody will take the time to look into this because it's very annoying.

  7. Ahh, that's it. You found the culprit. Another lesson to learn. Thank you so much! Geir
  8. Sorry, wrong file Here is the afpub file Geir Grindabygg_24x24_ENDELEG_ver7.afpub
  9. I have attached the afpub file and 2 PDF versions of page 79, where '79 Export' is produced with File-->Export-->PDF (for print) and show error in the typeface (very thin, almost unreadable). '79 Print' is made with File-->Print-->Adobe PDF . This shows correct typeface. If you take time to see the apub file you'll see similar errors on pages 23, 53, 59, 67 (caption) - and the text on the pages 72-73, 78-79 The font used in the captions is Times New Roma italic, the font in body text is Adobe Garamond Pro. I'm on Win 10. I'd be very glad if you would be looking into this. Geir Grindabygg_24x24_ENDELEG_ExportPrint.pdf 79 Print.pdf 79_Export.pdf
  10. Hello I have created a book (108 pages) in AfPublisher ( That's pretty much gone well. But when I now am about sending the book to the print shop, typeface errors appear on some pages. Option 1: I choose File -> Export -> PDF (for print). Attached file '79 low 'shows the problem. The typeface is thin, almost unreadable. Option 2: Attached file '79 best 'has been executed with File -> Print -> Adobe PDF and it is correct. I prefer Alt.1 because Alt.2 has a tendency to distort the colors in some of the images. Has anyone encountered similar problems when exporting? Geir
  11. Perhaps have a look here: http://www.imposeonline.com/ You upload your PDF, make your choices and download an imposed PDF which you can print.
  12. You can find dictionaries here https://github.com/LibreOffice/dictionaries In Win install them under ...C:\Program Files\Affinity\Publisher Public Beta\Resources\Dictionaries Worked for me
