  1. Will Publisher from Affinity Store work ok with Designer and Photo from Microsoft Store? I have both Affinity Designer and Affinity Photo from Microsoft Store. Can I purchase Publisher from Affinity Store and integrate them or should I wait and purchase from Microsoft Store?
  2. I have previously purchased Affinity Designer and Photo from Microsoft Store. And I have bee using Publisher beta. Now that the full version of Publisher is available I am wondering if I can purchase Publisher from Affinity Store, with the beta user discount, and will it integrate fully with the Microsoft Store versions of designer and Photo? Or should I stick to Microsoft Store versions in order to ensure full compatibility? Any insight into potentials issues in the future would be much appreciated. Thanks
  3. Link resources are treated differently and this will reduce the file size. I think there is a note on the Publisher beta forum but cannot find it right now
  4. You can indeed send each page separately to output. See the pdf export below. The border alternates from each page. This was created exactly as' Psenda' has suggest to you in the post above, i.e. with facing pages.
  5. I am not sure if these are really bugs or just a suggestion for improvement so this might be in the wrong forum. These are are relatively minor issues but I wanted to just give some feedback as they do impact on the usability of the application. I am using Windows 10 and downloaded the Latest version on 9/05/2020 but these 'bugs' apply equally to the previous version Resource manager and missing resources. If you move resources to a new folder and they become missing in Publisher, the resource manager is not very helpful or intuitive to use. When looking for a missing file , using the 'update' button it would be useful to populate the filename window with the name of the image. It would be even more useful if the resource manager could just be pointed to the new folder. Currently each resource has to be updated individually. With many documents having tens, or even hundreds, of resources it is a major rework. Text Frames and Styles?(possibly) I was working on a document and wanted three different text frame styles, one plain and two with contrasting backgrounds. It would have been useful to employ Text Frame Styles but they don't seem to be available. So each time I changed the appearance of a text frame those changes persisted to the next Text Frame, meaning I was constantly editing text Frame parameters. For me the best workflow is to use plain Text frames and only edit the parameters of each Text Frame at the end of the document creation but that is not an ideal way to work for me. I am enjoying playing with the Application and look forward to the final product to accompany my AP and AD application. PS. In the edit menu I can 'Paste Style' as I can also in A_Designer ( and maybe A_Photo ?) .but this menu option is not available when I right click on the mouse. It would be great if it could be accessed from a mouse click as well
  6. I had similar issue and it was caused by my moving the image files to a different directory. Check that the images are still in the directory pointed to
  7. In Illustrator many items/curves can be placed on a single layer. In affinity Designer each goes on it;'s own layer. is it possible you are simple seeing the different way the two Applications work?
  8. 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?
  9. 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?

    PDF Editor

    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.
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. 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
