  1. Yes, this would be a big timesaver !!! Like Seb Romeo, I also have to do a lot of webdesign. After approval of the page design layout i always have to "program" the real content pages in html/css. It's always a lot of wasted time, to manually remove the unusual linebreak or paragraph chars and rebuild the original text structure when it comes to this final stage. So please: at least a simple text file export of selected text/pages would do it. Better some richtext format, to preserve paragraphs over multiple newlines. Or an additional menu item. Like the reverse of "paste without format" -> "copy without format (with standard richtext)"... Save as "simple" HTML would be great At least automatic conversion of headings to <h1> and paragraphs to <p>... Meanwhile here is some workaround: 1) In publisher: mark the text on your page and do Export -> PDF (digital, no transparency reduction, text must be preserved as text). Optional with "region: selection with/without background". Or you export your whole publisher document to PDF. 2) Open the PDF in Acrobat Pro and do: Save as -> Advanced Options -> RTF (Rich Text Format) 3) Open .rtf File in WORD or another simple Texteditor, that supports RTF. Copy the text to cliboard. 4) Paste the clipboard content to your code editor - e.g. VS Code. wow - "only" 4 steps for some simple copy and paste action ­čśÉ 1) 2) 3) 4)
  2. Hi, unfortunately the error doesn't occur again completely in the manner described above (restarted my computer several times since then). Neither with the complex tall document (see above) nor with a new document (simple landscape fullhd). error 1) At a second glance i saw in my screenshots that the document/rulers weren't fliped (vertically mirrored) but rotated by 180 degrees. So there might be an unintended interference with the publisher function view -> rotate left/right ? This error does not show up again. So i could not do further tests on this. error 2) The other part of the described behaviour stil shows up. After hiding all publisher windows via shortcut WINDOWS + D and returning back from the Windows Desktop with WINDOWS + D (toggle), the view in the second display shows an empty window. No rulers, no layout pages. Only the standard window title (programm icon + doc title) AND the publisher footer control bar (pages, tool context info, ...). To get any contents back into view on the second display i have to either minimize the program window there or focus this window via the Windows taskbar button. Further tests show this interesting point: The error 2) only appears when the programm window in display 2 is maximized! If the window in display 2 is not maximized when switching to the Windows Desktop and back again, the window will immediately show up correct. Even with the shortcut WINDOWS + D. As soon as i maximize the window again the error 2) occurs again. I can reproduce this with new publisher views or the same views several times by switching from maximzed to non maximized state. So the window maximze state is part of the problem in combination with my 2 display windows setup ? Here are my Windows display settings. The second display (left hand 2 ) has a smaller resolution:
  3. Hi Gabe, this might be an expected behaviour from a developers point of view. But i guess this behaviour is counter intuitive because the master symbol can be moved like any other object in the layout page. So why should it behave in a different way when it comes to layout scale? When i set the transform origin to the upper left corner and layout fix method (in german: "Auf Seite verankern") activated i expect that all elements in the layout stay unscaled at their orginal position - including the master page symbol. Only the layout page boundaries should resize to right/bottom. And mind the impact on my daily work (screendesign - not print). I have to export dozens of screenshot JPG/PNG for customer approval. Almost after every context change in a layout page (new text, additional images, ...) i need to change the page height. This is because i don't want to have a huge blank space at the bottom of a screenshot. A customer might think this is an intended part of the screendesign ! As a consequence i always have to correct the page height so that the screenshot shows a realistic webdesign from header to footer. Now count the seconds and minutes per day only to fix the master layout shift by always manually repositioning the master symbol to the upper page border again. Sorry - but these endless workarounds are really time consuming...
  4. Hi Gabe, here is a simple test file which reproduces the behaviour: bug-demo_layout-scale_master-page-shift_1-1.afpub The master symbol in the layout page is always shifted to the vertical center of the layout page although the scale method (transform anchor) is relative to the upper left corner. By the way: it's so annoying during every day work to always have to unlock proportional scale and set the anchor again every time one opens this layout scale dialog again. Why not at least remembering the last used settings ? To my mind there is little use of scaling the contents of a layout page together with the new page height because this will distort the layout content. In most cases this is not the intended behaviour (unless the new page size is proportionaly scaled up or down, e.g. from one DIN format to another). As far as my work is concerned in almost all cases i need to extend the layout page height to add more page content at the bottom. My workflow is as follows:
  5. Publisher Version System is Windows 10 with latest updates, runing a NVIDIA Quadro P4000 with driver version 431.94. The second display is set to the left side (Windows Settings -> Display: Monitor 2, left hand). Hi, i opened a new view of the same Publisher document and undock / move the window to a second display. I maximize the program window (standard upper right corner icon, window maximize) to fill the second display fullscreen. So far so good - nice feature ­čÖé 1a) After changing to the Windows Desktop (WINDOWS + D, all Publisher App Windows hidden) and returning to Publisher the window on the second display show all layout pages upside down. Even the rulers / coordinate origin is fliped ! I verified this by creating a third view of the same document and also undocked it and move it to the second display. This 3rd view also shows it's content and rulers upside down. 1b) After bringing the Publisher window to front on the second display the view does not show any layout pages. No view zoom shortcut will bring any layout page into view. Even doubleclicking on a layout page icon in the page-palette will not bring any page into view on the second display. The only way to show a layout page again in this second window is to minimize the window (no longer fullscreen). But, as mentioned in 1a) the view then shows the pages / rulers upside down. When checking the layout pages in the main display (Windows Monitor one) the layout page is intact and not fliped. So this might be an open GL error ? If i minimize the second window and dock it again into the main Publisher layout window (now 2 Tabs docked into the Publisher main window) the false view flips and now shows the correct orientation again. These errors always occur when hiding/showing (toggle to Desktop and back again) the Publisher Windows via WINDOWS + D shortcut. 2) Another way to fix the empty view in the second display is, to explicitly focus the second window via the window icon in the Windows Taskbar. Then the window content ist restored immediately in the correct orientation.
  6. Hallo elk, ja ich k├Ąmpfe seit ├╝ber 2 Jahren st├Ąndig mit den Affinity Programmen, da ich auf jeden Fall nicht in dem erpresserischen Adobe CS Mietmodell enden will. Und die 3 Affinity Programme sind, wie Du schon sagtest, auch f├╝r mich die einzige professionelle Alternative zu den Adobe Hauptanwendungen Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign. Ich habe im Markt nichts vergleichbar Modernes und gut Ausgebautes gefunden (Corel Draw und Konsorten sind ziemlicher Krampf, QuarkExpress nat├╝rlich absolut professionell aber irgend wie strange UX). Gerade Affinity Publisher ist mit InDesign CS6 verglichen echt der Hammer ­čÖé Und Affinity Designer z.B. als PDF / EPS / AI Dosen├Âffner ist ziemlich krass... Ich mach das Adobe Spiel jetzt schon seit ├╝ber 25 Jahren mit (Aldus gekauft, Macromedia gekillt, ...). Dabei war f├╝r mich Photoshop schon immer das Arbeitspferd schlechthin - und wird es wohl auch noch eine Zeit lang bleiben m├╝ssen, bis die Affinity Suite so geschmeidig l├Ąuft wie die Adobe Dinger (da wimmelte es aber auch ├╝ber die Jahre immer wieder mal von Bugs). Aber Adobe hatte auch ├╝ber 20 Jahre gebraucht, um durch das User-Feedback alle professionellen Funktionen stabil auszubauen. Also ist Geduld mit Serif gefragt - auch wenn es manchmal schwer f├Ąllt
  7. THE REASON ok, i guess i got it. Publisher seems to manage the master page contents as symbols in the background layer of each layout page. After scaling the layout page from the upper left corner with fixed content method, the other content elements in the layout page are neither scaled nor moved. That's how i expect it to work. Nonetheless the master symbol IS moved downwards in this case. And the guides contained in the master symbol of course move with it: After moving the master symbol to the upper layout border the contained guides move with it in the expected position: This workaround works but is not really self-explanatory. After all the master symbol is a content element like all others on the layout page - isn't it ?
  8. Publisher Windows, Version Hi, i use publisher the most time for webdesign. This means i typicaly prepare some master pages for the common viewport widths, e.g. fullhd, tablet, mobile, ... When designing the content pages i have to scale the layout pages to different heights, to filll them with demo content. E.g. a layout page that shows mobile content will be a very long "strip" which is 360px wide, but 3000px in height. Every content page has an individual height depending on the demo content in it. This height changes always during the design process. But of course typical page items like header bar with logo and navigation elements are part of the respected master pages. PROBLEM Together with typical design elements that appear on every content page (e.g. header bar) i set some guides in the matser page to see typical heights in the layout pages that relay on this master page. This might be 2 guides which set the the max height of a page hero or something else. What i expect is, that the quides from the master page always remain at their original position when scaling a layout page relative to the upper left corner. The Elements in the layout page should NOT be resized. I only need more height to add additional content at the bottom of the layout page. But, after scaling the layout page using these settings the giudes that derive from the master page are shifted verticaly in the layout page. I set the transform origin to the upper left corner. But this doesn't work as expected. Instead it becomes more weird, when using the other layout scale method. Then the guides from the master stay intact but of course the whole content of the layout page is scaled unproportionaly. This is of course nothing that anybody needs ­čś×
  9. Hey, danke Joachim - das ist auf jeden Fall eine Arbeitserleichterung :)) Ich hatte die beiden Zusatzoption im Dropdown ├╝berhaupt nicht bemerkt, da ich dachte, hier geht es immer nur um die Dokumentseiten. Die tauchen ja auch erst auf, wenn man in dem Moment tats├Ąchlich ein Objekt markiert hat. W├Ąre vielleicht hilfreich, die immer anzuzeigen, aber ggf. inaktiv/ausgegraut ?! Somit kriege ich zumindest schon mal die typischen Heros und Beistellbilder aus dem Layout raus - leider nur mit 72 dpi. Scheinbar ist der Export unabh├Ąngig von der eingestellten Dokument-Aufl├Âsung. Also dort 300dpi einzustellen bringt nix. Das Resultat bleibt 72dpi. Oder hab ich da noch was ├╝bersehen ? Z.B. Logos und andere Strichgrafiken, die ich mit 2x oder 3x Aufl├Âsung f├╝r das Webdesign br├Ąuchte muss ich also nachwievor in AD ├╝ber slices exportieren. Na ja, hoffen wir mal auf Publisher 2.0 NACHTRAG ok, ich hab einen Workaround. Im Export-Dialog setze ich manuell die Pixelgr├Â├če z.B. auf den doppelten oder dreifachen Wert. So skaliert z.B. die Logografik beim Export zu PNG proportional und ich habe 2x oder 3x Aufl├Âsung. Ist nat├╝rlich auch alles zeitaufw├Ąndiger, da jede Grafik einzeln behandelt werden muss. Da sind Slices nat├╝rlich praktischer, wenn man bei Korrekturen Objekte immer mal wieder neu exportieren muss. Es bleibt schwierig
  10. Hi guys, thanks for your efforts ­čÖé Take care everybody!
  11. That's interesting. Then the effects (unsharp mask) are not cliped by the picture frame boundaries. Hope you can fix this :-)
  12. Hi Walt, here are the settings in Designer, the same as in Publisher: And these are the document and snap setting: To my mind, setting the Pixel digit to 1 is more than enough. To be honest, I hardly never use float positions or dimensions when working for webdesign (force fulll pixels at 72dpi document resolution). And mostly I type in the values in the transform panel to be exact. I don't think that's the reason for the slice problem. And if it would be so - think of the consequences. This would be a serious overall bug! No matter what's internaly calculated (float), the transform panel MUST always show the real status of the selected object/s so I can rely on this. If it shows an integer it has to be an integer. If not, the transform panel has to show a float value. Otherwise the transform panel would be worth nothing ?!
  13. Hi Sean, document is uploaded to dropbox. Good luck By the way - the collect option in 1.8 will be a great helper :-)
  14. Hi Sean, this is a customer project with some big JPGs linked from a network drive. Would it be OK if I upload only the Publisher document itself - without the image files ? Don't know how to pack it into one zip without relinking the images ?!
