  1. I can confirm that my Huion 1060pro is working ok with the new beta versions AD and APh, as I say though just a casual user of tablets, publisher being my main use program.
  2. I think the last beta release said it would be the final before being a retail release and move on to developing 1.9 Beta, I would have hoped that the annoying spell check quirk that when you correct one instance of an error, by adding to the dictionary, if the word starts with a capital and it occurs further in the document without a capital at the beginning it shows as an error but right clicking only gives you the option of unlearning the spelling. nce saved and reopened it recognises the lower case word. I know this has been logged previously
  3. Printing "duplex" will depend on the model of printer you are using. You would also need to say which application you are using to design the postcard. photo, designer or publisher? Also best to post in support or questions to get more response
  4. Same problem with the Huion 1060 pro working fine in Designer and photo release version no response in beta. Windows 10 intel i5 coffee lake 16gb ram reported in the wacom thread
  5. Hi I am getting the same odd behaviour with my Huion 1060 plus which has the latest driver installed. With the pen tool works fine in release version but shoots of the document after the first press in the beta. The brush tool works fine in release version and does not even show any stroke or create a layer when I use it in beta. Forum will not let me upload screen snip with two versions side by side and everything identical Windows 10
  6. Hi I do not use tablets often but this post prompted me to try my Huion New 1060 plus which works fine in retail version but not in the latest beta versions of both Photo and Designer
  7. As a by the way it is best to post queries in the appropriate forum as not everyone looks at resources. Help with Publisher forum would be better and always say which operating system you are using e.g. Windows 10 or MAC OS and the version of the Affinity Software as some times problems are fixed in later or beta versions. Welcome to the forums and good luck on your Affinity Journey
  8. If you have set a page to have bleed you will get the warning if your bleed does not meet the full width set. Also you may get it if a text or an object is to near the edge of the page. The overflowing text frame means that your text frame is not large enough to show all the text inside, Double click and it will show you the frame that needs enlarging
  9. Just another query on hyperlinks which I often copy and paste from others text for newsletters, which more often than not arrives in the body of an email. If it is a full hyperlink Publisher recognises it and it works as an hyperlink in the exported pdf from publisher. If they have embedded an hyperlink in to shortened text Publisher picks up the colour format of the hyperlink but does not identify it as an hyperlink style and as with full hyperlinks there is no embedding of the actual link in the interactive menu. I have fallen foul of this a couple of times thinking they were all linked and published the pdf. It would be good if Publisher recognised a shortened hyperlink and reported it in preflight as missing the link. Also I am not sure if there is an option that I have not identified but nearly every hyperlink throws us as spelling errors in both as you type and in preflight. Is there or could there be an option to not spell check hyperlinks?
  10. The easiest way is to google the type of template you want, because of the compatibility of the Affinity range, especially with pdf's there is plenty of scope ones that I have come across through google are https://www.indesignskills.com/ https://www.freepik.com/ There are lots of sites for ideas like https://www.behance.net/ Have a look at this post
  11. This is a post I have just added to another similar topic, This forum has been one of the most helpful I have used, but need more insight to respond. Below is what I have posted in another topic, as I would not like new members to think no one is interested. I think the problem with Templates in Affinity is that there is such a variety that most users do not work from templates, but create them to suit the needs of the customer / project. Posters in the forum tend to react to specific questions about "how do I achieve this" or to those who have had a try but get stuck or ask for feedback A sample of your previous work and what you are trying to achieve may get more of a response. Do not forget that Affinity Publisher and Designer can import designs in pdf and other formats fairly accurately now, unless there are program specific features that have been included like mesh. Try some of the resource sites like https://www.freepik.com/ to get a basis of a design you can replicate or if it is very specific to a product try google for ideas to see what others have done. All the best for your Affinity journey

  13. The interesting thing with this is with studio it is easy to do this in Publisher with the Photo persona with both artistic and plain text, but again not being in to the maths behind it will take some playing about to get different effects
  14. The way I do a booklet, which can be either be printed and wire stitched or used as an online version, is to set the page to the finished page size then use the facing page option for design and editing. How it is used is controlled by the export or print options in Publisher. Prior to the COVID situation I produced a number of newsletters, up to about 36 pages, each month. How have you started your book? If single pages in an as they follow order you have no problem, if you have split a sheet in two with margins / columns then you may have a problem. Back in the sixties when I ran a jobbing printing and duplicating service, like the previous poster said, we would arrange the type in the chases using the principle that first defence listed. If it was for photolitho it was just a case of pasting the proofs in the right order, which got even more complicated it you were printing 8 pages or more per plate. Now this is all done by software. I wonder if anyone else had the experience of doing this with duplicating stencils? Church magazines were small run and could not afford the cost of printing, so we used to type 2 pages per stencil then work out which pages went where and cut the right hand page off the stencil and re-glue them back in the right order for folding and stitching. Happy to help if you want to message me direct, as I am virtually doing nothing at the moment with COVID
  15. May be worth looking at this post to get you started. This is good if you are printing it yourself, if sending to a print house just export as pdf using all pages and they will sort out the page order
