  1. Hi, The workaround I have found so far is to not create all your anchors at once. Then use numbers as building blocks e.g. 1.0 as Chapter 1 Bookmark section. Then sub-bookmarks for chapter 1 are 1.1, 1.2, 1.3 and so forth. Once one chapter is complete drag them to the parent object e.g. 1.0 Chapter 1 level to have parent-child objects. Then collapse Chapter 1.0 and move on to doing Chapter 2.0 and so forth. This way the sorting is via numbers of sequence you define not alphabetical sorting of bookmark texts. Also makes it easier to see which sub-sections go into what parent section. Doing one chapter at a time makes it easier to arrange also, as the current method does not make it possible to drag items from bottom to top (if more items than fit on the pane of bookmkark anchors...). In PagePlus this was a little easier for large items and creating items as sub-items. I know we have now drag and drop and the likes, but having ability to sort bookmarks in my order and also move elements up,down, sideways (for parent/child) is necessary for when there are more than 10-20 anchors for example.
  2. Hi All, I really need the Bookmark feature as some long documents and it is a good experience option for readers. I inserted my anchors throughout the document and enable them to included in Bookmark export. I cannot see how to arrange bookmarks in my order rather than Affinity picking bookmarks based on alphabetical order? Also, if I have maybe 20-30 Bookmarks - how can I move items up the list? For example, selecting the very last item and trying to drag to the very top (first) order does not work. The pane of the Anchor list does not scroll up. I think apart from drag and drop having some arrows to move items up and down long lists would be very beneficial. Or did I miss something? Thanks in advance
  3. Hi Fixx, Thanks for the quick reply. I had not seen earlier, paragraph object selected, in the right hand pane, paragraph tab, then scroll down, and expand "Drop Caps".
  4. Hi All, I am moving from Serif PagePlus to Affinity Publisher, so still learning. Is there a Drop Cap text or leading character text feature in Affinity Publisher? In PagePlus I can select the paragraph, right click and select Drop Cap, and then I can select Dropped or Raised. Anything like that in Affinity Publisher? Thanks in advance
  5. Hi, Has anyone tried editing iPhone portrait photos on Affinity Photo iPad? Anything I missed to do? Or are there are any workarounds? I just thought it would be nice workflow as photo already available to iPad, I have Apple Pencil and Affinity Photo iPad app would be nice for editing on Sofa :-). Anyways, thanks in advance if anyone has any tips/solutions/workarounds.
  6. Thanks Callum, I will try watching those videos and see if I can recreate. Pity the first one does not have slower steps and some audio to explain instead of music, but maybe watching a few times I will be able to recreate. Projects like these would make for a nice volume 2 of affinity photo workbook, or new online tutorials...
  7. Thanks guys, managed to get a EPS file also. I could not edit text easily, e.g. a word or sentence came out as individual letter vectors, but at least I got a lot of the layout etc. Love the serif community, thanks for helping others
  8. Hi Callum, Sorry for the delay, got caught up with work.... trying to attach the file which I emailed to myself from the iPad. Not sure if apple converted anything then or not. When I open the file on the iPad with Affinity Photo for iPad I see 2 layers, one is with background, and 1 layer is a mask. When editing in apple photo app, I can see the original image or go into portrait mode to simulate low-key or high-key. There are some small areas where the simulation does not always work, e.g. hair and background, so I was hoping I can edit the mask a little on the iPad with pencil and Affinity Photo. But I cannot see how to edit the mask while seeing the background and knowing which are to deal with, and I cannot see how I can kind of inverse the mask to show colour image of person subject, but decide if I want the actual background, or the simulated black (low-key) background. When I import into Procreate app on iPad I see the low-key effect image, I don't think there were multiple layers like I see in Affinity Photo, but I could then try to colour out the problem areas with brush strokes. Anyways, wondering how this is possible in Affinity Photo for iPad? Or it could be that the app cannot (at the moment) handle the apple portrait mode images? Though it is smart to see the layers of portrait mode coming through from apple format. Anyways, any ideas or thoughts welcome. Love the Serif community - thanks in advance
  9. Hi All, I see some nice template files in Adobe IN or EPS. I do not use those programs (too expensive) and happy user of Serif for many years. Can Affinity Designer or Publisher open the .IN files or .EPS files? Can I then edit these in Affinity? I do not want to buy template and then I cannot open/edit. I think EPS file might work as I tried a vector EPS file with Affinity Designer and that worked. Anyways, wanted to know from expert community. I think the Serif templates we had for PagePlus were a nice idea also.
  10. Hi All, I have some nice iPhone 11 portrait photos in Low-Key and High-Key. Sometimes the background shines through e.g. with long silky hair. I was thinking of editing this with iPad and Apple pencil and of course Affinity Photo for iPad. When I open the file (from my Apple Photos from cloud/iPad) I cannot really edit the file. It seems to display the mask of portrait, but I cannot see the original photo and mask (which then is used by iPhone to create High and Low key effect). I was hoping to use the apple pencil to brush out some areas. I can open the same files in Procreate 4 and do some editing there. Anyone else know how to do this in Affinity Photo iPad? Did I miss something? Thanks in advance
  11. Hi All, I am seeing some nice photos from iPhone 11 and portrait mode, especially for low-key and high-key. Is there any way to do this with Affinity Photo Desktop? I saw some video on YouTube using the "lights" simulation and masks with Affinity Photo, but cannot find that clip anymore. Wondering if anyone else had some nice steps, samples to show how to create Low-Key and High-Key images with Affinity Photo (e.g. normal colour photo as source) and then end up with High and Low. Thanks in advance
  12. Hi All, New to affinity range. I have new and old range. In PagePlus I am able to create PDF Bookmarks. These are very useful for readers who can expand/collapse such a panel in PDF reader, and jump to sections with that PDF Bookmark index. It works like an Index (title/sections and jumps to page number or anchor). Is there something like this in Affinity Publisher? Thanks in advance
  13. Thanks Carl123, I think I have to learn more and plan for more time for basic things - OK to be fair, PagePlus is 8th generation, and Affinity Publisher is version 1. This is kind of what I am after - found it in Help file of Publisher -> help | Creating custom tables. I know full control is good, but some wizards, styles out-of-the-box, and publisher file templates (like page layout, frames, etc. - we could buy some affordable content in the past for PagePlus) would help
  14. Hi All, New to affinity range. In PagePlus, I could add a table and apply themes/styles, e.g. medium green on column title, then light green1 for line 1, light green 2 for line 2, and colours for line even and odd line numbers alternate automatically. How is this done in Publisher? Thanks in advance
  15. Hi All, I finally found items - on the Master Page. I did not edit anything on master pages last few days, so how those text frames changed I do not know. I deleted every text frame, one by one to see which one was the culprit. When I tried all, I deleted all, and found still warning popping up. So then I thought OK, Master Pages last guess, and that was it. Time I will not get back :-(. Maybe this tip helps others. I only hope that Affinity range keeps getting better.... These are basics we need like pre-flight check and all features of old range + better must be there. Easier and more intuitive.
