  1. I absolutely love using Affinity Publisher, but there are a couple of aspects of the default preferences for typography that I can't figure out. When I paste copy into a text frame, by default it adds a certain number of points after each line break. I cannot find where this default preference is set. I would like to be able to turn it off or specify it.Where is it? Also by default it creates leading in its own way.I want to be able to set my default preference for the way I want it. (% of Height: 125%) How do I do that so that in each new document it remembers what my settings were?
  2. Walt! Thank you so much for this tip! This view mode thing has been driving me crazy up till now. My design life has just improved significantly. 😁 Thanks a lot.
  3. I’ve spent two hours trying to find this function on the iPad version of a Affinity Photo. Where the heck is it?
  4. OK, I need to reply to my own post. As is usually the case with this application, it’s not a matter of it not working, it’s a matter of me not knowing how to work it. The round-trip save to dropbox does in fact work perfectly well. It’s just very finicky about how you instigate the file. If you don’t start out pulling it from dropbox in the first place it’s very hard to understand where it goes. But if the file does begin within Dropbox, it stays there. So it does work, you just can’t see how it’s making that decision. When the file is saved on an iPad, it does not give you a dialog box as to where to put it. It just put it back where it started from. You can’t really move it after the fact. Unless you go into your desktop environment and move the file within the finder there. Then you can open from cloud on the iPad And start working on it. It will then remain in dropbox if you have put it into dropbox in the desktop environment. It’s kind of weird, but when you get used to it it makes sense.
  5. I want to be able to save my Affinity Photo documents to my Dropbox storage and work on them in my desktop environment. It just isn't working. I've read several threads already, tried to follow the instructions. Just doesn't work. I have tried Open from iCloud (I then drive to my Dropbox folder. And yes, I have Dropbox enabled as a location within the Files app on my iPad.). That works. I modify the image on my iPad. I close it and go back to my Index page. I click on the hamburger and select save. It goes through the process, never giving me the option as to WHERE it is saving. Only says Saving. Then I poke around on both my Dropbox folders and my iCloud folders. I dont see this modified file ANYWHERE within the desktop environment. WHERE is it! This inability to make this work defeats the whole promise of seamless back and forth editing between devices. Obviously I am missing some critical step, but honestly, it's about as clear as mud as to how to make it actually function. Can somebody there at Affinity please get me up to speed here? This is a total buzz kit... Thanks.
  6. Wow! Thanks Walt! That worked perfectly. What they should do is elaborate on the Yes button and say something along the lines of "Click Yes to relink all broken links within this document." Thanks again.
  7. When I move the location in the Finder of a folder of images that are linked to in a Publisher document, the Resource Manager immediately indicates a broken link. Thats fine. I can relink it using the Resource Manager. BUT, it seems to require that I do that individually for every single image, ONE BY ONE. Not cool! When I did the same thing in InDesign, if I relinked one relocated image, it would tell me that it had found other similarly linked files in the same folder and ask me if I wanted to relink them all also. I would say yes, and it would do all of them in one shot. I cant find this option in Publisher. Does it simply not exist? and if so, WHY NOT! Please tell me Im just not seeing that option in the UI. Thanks.
  8. Hello All, Just to follow up, I did resolve the technique. Two great ways to do it, either with a radial fill within a shape which ends with a transparency value of zero, or the same thing with a mask on a layer with a gradient fill. See attached screenshots. Thanks h_d for your suggestion. Problem solved.
  9. Ok. So I tried it. It’s close to what I’m after but unfortunately the filter effects the rest of the image. Changes the ambient light value. i need this to simply be a gradient sphere of color where I can control the roll off of the color on the edges to completely transparent.
  10. I want to create an effect of a radial color burst on top of my existing layers. It needs to be normal blending mode. and I want it to gradate from intense in the middle to transparent on the edges. How do I do that in affinity photo?
  11. Ok. I tried doing the techniques 6 times. No luck. The endpoints will not fuse. Ridiculous. Affinity, what is your thinking here? Seems absurd. Not to mention a colossal waste of time and effort.
  12. I will try the move and re position trick. Weird that that’s necessary but such is life. Generally I’ve found that many times Affinity will utilize a different way to do what you are used to in Adobe software. usually it’s a better solution once you get used to it. In this case, I am failing to see the advantage so far.
  13. Ive tried that a dozen times. When you do it, does it make the beginning and endpoint of the curve a single node? When I do it, it does not. They remain separate points. Thus the issue.
