  1. Hi guys, Hi guys, I must confess, I am using Mac OS Catalina Beta. I realize that perhaps I am asking a lot for Publisher to function seamlessly on this public beta. But such is life. LOL. I can report though, that having completely restarted the machine, I was able to have more success with the Hyperlinking functionality. I was able to successfully finish my document and send it off, hyperlinks and page links fully in place. Perhaps Affinity will release an update that will make it Catalina proof but until then, I must take my chances. haha :)
  2. I am thrilled with the release version of Publisher for hundreds of reasons. But I am very dismayed by how poorly the hyperlink function actually works. Whether I am attempting to hyperlink to another page or to a URL, it hardly ever succeeds. When I input the specifications, and hit return, Publisher simply quits entirely. Sooooo frustrating!! Has anyone found a solution to this issue? Or is there a new build available? This is really messing me up on a project right now. I would love it if there was a way to fix this unfortunate bugginess. Please let me know. Thanks.
  3. Es voila! Perfect. Thanks! I didnt know that panel existed. transfer test.afpub
  4. I'm thoroughly enjoying experimenting with the release build of Publisher. (Its fascinating how you can switch back and forth between the apps.) One thing I cant figure out is, in Publisher, if I have set type to wrap around a particular object, is there a way to allow other text (Like a large headline) to ignore that wrap setting? Im sure it is probably possible but I dont see where to set that up. transfer test.afpub

    Affinity Publisher (1.7) Launch Announcement

    I agree. It would be great if you could easily open an Indesign file and have it convert on the fly. I have used the PDF opening method. It sort of works. But the typography specifications do not travel well. It can be pretty tedious to fix the formatting once you are in Publisher.

    Affinity Publisher (1.7) Launch Announcement

    Yes, even if you dont do print layouts, its worth having Publisher for the way it has all the Personas within the same app. That alone kind of revolutionizes the way we all go about designing anything. And the fact that you can open a Publisher document straight into Designer or Photo (On your iPad if you want) and then back into Publisher after that, is so damn cool, I cant stand it! Wow! Game-changing!

    Affinity Publisher (1.7) Launch Announcement

    Wow. Wow, and did I mention Wow? Just tried the non-beta release of Affinity Publisher. All I can say is: Im in Love! Well done Affinity! The way that you can switch personas within one app is absolutely brilliant! Works amazingly well. Huge time and confusion saver. LOVE it! Thank you thank you thank you!
  9. And yes. The file def. has a .jpg suffix
  10. Just used the standard export environment. (Hitting shift, option, command S)
  11. I discovered the source of the problem. The original file had a huge amount of metadata. I unchecked the box that said “save metadata “ and the file is now appropriately small.
  12. Im experiencing the weirdest issue: When I go to export my Affinity Photo file (Aprox. 33mb), and I select Jpeg, at 85% quality with no dimensional changes 600px X 1200px at 72 dpi, Im getting massive files. 88mb jpegs! That is insane. I have never had this issue with AP. I cant image what is creating this phenomenon. If I then open this jpeg and flatten it, the file size goes back to what you would expect. (300 k) I was under the impression that Jpeg have no layers and are flat by definition. What is going on here? Any suggestions?
