  1. It you have made edits then the App is going to ask you if you want to save before exiting. Most Apps do this. If other changes are made to the file it can also ask if you want to save.) for instance in designer, if you export in different formats it will also ask if you want to save changes even though you might have made no edits I think this is expected behaviour?
  2. Using Windows 10 , I right click all the time in all three apps, Photo, Desigher and Publisher beta , to paste. Can you explain what you can't paste?

    If you are on Windows then Office Lens is free and can do OCR. I have sued it successfully for large documents and it outputs in Word or PDF. However you need to convert the input document to an image(jpeg, png, bmp etc) . I do this in Affinity Designer/Photo.
  4. Thanks R C-R. I think I arranged the artboards top to bottom to ensure they would print in that order - so I inadvertently created the problem myself. I have rearranged the artboards on the layers panel and the print order is now correct. Thanks again for your help Gerard
  5. This is probably rather trivial but if there is a simple solution I would be grateful. I am using artboards , in Designer, to approximate pages in a larger document. Started with one artboard/page and duplicated as I needed. ( I know Publisher would be a more appropriate application and I will migrate when it is available - I do have the beta on trial) . However when I export to PDF for print the order of the pages is reversed. I can see no setting to arrange the order of the exported artboards/pages. I have also tried the export persona with the same result. At the moment I open in Acrobat and reorder the pages so not a big problem but if there is a simple solution I would be happy to hear it. thanks Gerard
  6. Thanks Callum I hadn't realised that there was a frame around the image. It is working now thanks. Just need to clean up! regards gerard
  7. I have a word document, created by Office lens, which contains text and an image. I cannot copy and paste the image into Affinity Designer or Affinity Photo. I can import into Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop as well as into Microsoft Paint 3d. And I could save in Illusttrator and import into Affinity designer. I just wonder if this is a known problem or am I doing something wrong. I attached the Word document with the image and the text deleted. Thanks for any ideas. As I have said, I can use Illustrator as an intermediary App. but I would prefer to paste directly diagram only.docx
  8. Thanks Adam Changes to all pages work Gerard
  9. Playing around with this further, if I uncheck the 'Facing pages' checkbox in the Document setup it corrects this and exports each page correctly.
  10. I have created 12 page document , page size A4. When exported as pdf, I get facing pages combined into a single A3 page. In same document, print to pdf does not work. Haven't tried printing to paper yet. I have repeated with a second document with the same results
  11. Thanks Chris I was trying to place an empty table on the master page , essentially just for the frame, and add different contents on the individual pages. I need to find another way of doing it! thanks
  12. The photos you posted are quite small, the largest is only 1000 pixels on longest side. If you took these photos then perhaps check your originals and see if you have larger versions. I know nothing of iPhone but I know even an average phone would produce larger files than these
  13. I have a number of problems working with tables. I have created a table on the Master page. When I try to add to a cell on a page it adds it to the master. At times I cannot select a cell to insert text into it. The file saved, but when I try to reopened it I get the error message "The file type is not supported." ( the file type is shown as ".afpub"
  14. Thanks Carl, That works for me ! I also tried removing the artboard on the original file and that is now working too. So just a problem with artboards on Windows machines. thanks again Gerard
