  1. In comparison, PagePlus has been able to convert to epub and mobile for four-five years. Probably there was an HTML engine running in the background, that's why Affinity can't integrate with Publisher. The joke is that they dropped ebook export just as it was getting more widespread. That's also publishing... And we'll have to wait a few more years, if ever.
  2. I hate online tools, because you never know if the file is actually deleted from the server or kept and you can't stop it from there. Once you put something on the internet...
  3. Back then, PagePlus X9 was almost perfect for exporting a book to either PDF or ebook with two clicks, and I got really flawless results. For the ebook export, it turned off the separators, maybe even put in fonts (I'm not sure). So I didn't need a separate program, I could use the same preformatted, broken book for either print or ebook. I would like to do the same now in Publisher.
  4. PagePlus produced EPUB without problems, but unfortunately Serif no longer sells it. Perhaps a solution might be to - making a copy of the project - turn off automatic hyphenation in styles - export to PDF - try converting with Calibre I haven't done this yet, but I also miss the EPUB/MOBI/AZW export.
  5. Thanks for the tip, I will try it on the non rasterized version. But why is there a layer left on the rasterized version? Where did it inherit the selection from if it's not supposed to be there? Your trick working on rasterized version too, great thanks!
  6. Hello @Dan C, I uploaded two projects: - original version - rasterized version The error is on the second page, look for the Pixel and HSL layer in the second group under AdobeStock_41677911-removebg.png!
  7. My project has gone crazy. I recolored an area, so I used a layer like this: - image -- mask -- HSL I saved the project in Publisher and it became a cover. Now I opened it in Publisher or in Photo and I can't create a new mask because it always selects the old, recolored area. I have rasterized the image, but the coloring and selection still appear. I simply can't do anything meaningful in the project because it always selects the small part that I can't delete, the opacity keeps going down but the object doesn't delete. Please help me to use the project again! Since the project contains copyrighted images, I can't post it publicly.
  8. I need this feature, good for books. The file name could be the "project name - section name", and where section name is empty, then "project name - section id".
  9. If there were interoperability between PagePlus and Publisher, I would complete the missing functionality in PagePlus. But neither the PagePlus project can be opened in Publisher, nor does it work backwards because of the different programming engines. So I am left waiting. I know it's a big job, but we've really been waiting at least 3 years.
  10. Affinity Publisher's predecessor, PagePlus, was already capable of producing EPUB and MOBI formats, and at near-perfect quality from a single text feed. I understand that the engine has been rewritten and that the Data Merge option was needed, but PagePlus is no longer available and I cannot recommend it to my fellow writers and publication editors. I too am in dire need of an ebook generator, and I was looking forward to this feature along with the endnotes and footnotes functions. So, for the time being, Publisher is good for breaking a printed book at best. Ok, an ebook is a web page at its core, so I understand that Publisher would then be able to export to the web, but could ebook export be lifted from PagePlus?
  11. I'm a book editor. After several years, I opened PagePlus, which already did epub/mobi export. Couldn't that code be brought under Publisher? I miss this feature.
  12. Need this function without new image, with three options: Crop to image, Crop active layer and Crop image to active layer. This would be nice.
  13. I found a solution! Here is my steps with images: Add a white fill layer Right click on this layer -> Rasterize and trim On Effects tab click Inner shadow and set border size what you want. Use cog for border intensity, plus can use offset tool, angle, and much great option for perfect border! When border is ready, right click on this layer, and select Rasterize to mask. That's all, and have transparented border! If you need art-like border, just follow these steps: Create white fill layer on top Select a brushes with black color and painting a border. You will see background under black areas. When ready, select Rasterize to Mask, and fix mask with brush if need.
  14. Thanks for help, and I hope this will improvement in future, because area over hair need more transparent for perfect working.
  15. @Gabe thank you, I uploaded, and project includes original picture and cutted version as new layer.
  16. Hi @Gabe, Can I send this project as private? Photo is commercial licensed what I used.
  17. Hello, I use Refine after image selection, and selected Matte on image. In preview see very nice output. Cutted image send to a New Image. After PNG save I see a border around image when I zoom to this what leaved Matte area. Cuttted image is not clear on hair. Please fix this, because this area will show on print. Here is this image as PNG, if need: https://1drv.ms/u/s!Ar9GB-v89284gtEvI3rA0RLCXA2zFQ?e=MBjlG4
  18. Hi all, I have a book, and fill textboxes with autoflow. But newer pages have vertical align middle. How can I select all textboxes on selected pages and apply vertical align to top? If selected text with CTRL+A not helped, and align applied to active textbox only.
  19. @Joachim_L Yes, it's great trick, because barcode no use any ICC profile, and when open, Affinity will assign a profile, and after barcode copy will this profile move with this. I used place before, and program no assigned profile to barcode, and converted to other color. Great thanks for tricks, I will use your steps!
  20. @Dazmondo77 Thanks for great help, and I will believe for Affinity, and need plus steps if I use a barcode: open code (as embedded or not) assign to same color profile as cover after PDF export will check in Photo too. @Joachim_L Thanks, and I think JCP is convert CMYK value from RGB (as said Dazmondo), because under RGB working perfect. I make barcodes here, this online tool can make 0,0,0,100 CMYK barcode to EPS: https://www.free-barcode-generator.net/isbn/
  21. Thanks, I fixed, 0,0,0,100 is correct of course. I didn't check in Acrobat, but press can, and call me, this barcode not include K value only with 100. And tried open embedded file (then I get curves), assigned to ICC profile, close that, and after export checked picker... But Affinity picker give back different value as Just Color Picker... What is correct?
  22. Hi all, I have a problem with color profile, and need a tip for printing. I have a project with ISO Coated v2 ECI 300 or Coated_Fogra39L_VIGC_300 color profile and a CMYK barcode in EPS format. This is a book cover and for printing need barcode in 0,0,0,255 black, and without embed ICC profile. When I insert barcode to project, automatically converted lower black, but these profiles include full K support. If I open barcode with double click, and assign (not convert) to correct ICC profile, then I get correct values (with strokes?). I tested this value with Just Color Picker in CMYK pick, but I get different value: And after PDF export get a new value again: Here is my PDF export settings, and I tried "Convert image color spaces" option turned on or off, but no helped. How can I set PDF export for leave barcode in original 0,0,0,100 format? If open my PDF in Affinity Photo, then Affinity picker see 0,0,0,100 in barcode... Is this correct? (I haven't Adobe Acrobat Pro for checking.)
  23. I can't follow JixiPix version numbers and updates. Just under Premium Pack I see three different versions And I tested callback with Rip Studio, and working after update.
  24. MEB, ok, I will use your trick, and not duplicate layer from Refine window. Thanks. I didn't find this solution, and I believed this is a bug. Sorry.
  25. I found a bug in AP, just follow next steps: open a picture select an item with Selection Brush Tool click to Refine in window change Output to New layer with mask, click OK turn on Background, and turn off mask see the results: you get a border (?) around selected area on image. If selected New Layer with mask the duplicated image will not same as Background! Need delete second image, duplicate background, and move mask under this third layer. Please fix this! I attached my screenshot from this "border".
