  1. Hello, I'm having trouble creating a table of contents in a new document. It worked fine in a previous document/version, but this time it's not. When I generate a TOC, the text is .2pt, and when I change the styles, the style will not continue when I update the TOC. Also, Heading 1 and Heading 2 are automatically checked, but when I uncheck those and select "Chapter Title," the table will not update with the correct settings there either. Am I doing something wrong? I have version
  2. Have there been any updates to this? I purchased Affinity Designer through the appstore, and now I'm trying to link it with Affinity Publisher, but because I don't have a product key, it looks like I am unable? How does that work? (Now in Publisher, I can't even find where I'm supposed to enter it.)
  3. Hello, It looks like when I try to replace a master page by dragging the new one on top of the page that still has an old one, the master is not replaced. Instead, it contains the information from both masters (and it's a pain to have to manually remove a master from each one). Super thankful for Publisher so far though!
  4. Hello, I have a multipage document with lots of text boxes. When I go to export, I get several errors such as "your table of contents is out of date," warnings of missing images, and a warning about text frame overflows. What I am wondering is, is there a preflight option that allows you to see what pages these errors are on? Thank you!
  5. Thank you @fde101! That was super helpful!
  6. Hello, I am loving Affinity Publisher, but I have a question. In my table of contents, I would like to have dots as a leader between the heading and the page number. I see the option to add a separator (which right now is ">>"), so I am assuming that's where I would change it, but I'm not sure what to enter (or how to find what to enter). I hope that makes sense. Please let me know!
  7. Great, thank you, I didn't see that before. However, when I change it, the spacing shifts and no dots are added. Am I doing something wrong?
  8. Thank you, @joachim! I see where to make the change, but I'm not sure what do do. Would you be able to explain? I want the entry (left aligned), then the dots, then the page number (right aligned). How would I do that?
  9. Your comment just solved my problem :+) Thank you!
  10. I am having a similar issue. The entire document is formatted and has the correct styles added, but when I try to generate my Table of Contents it says "no table of contents entries found."
  11. Hello, I am trying to export two pages from my document to a PDF. I have previously done it with a similar page in the file with no problems, now it is taking several minutes. I was thinking it could be image size in the poster, but as I did it before with no problems, I don't think that's it.
  12. Thanks for the info @Carl123!
  13. The images themselves aren't very huge (and only 300dpi), but they are blown up to 24x36. You probably won't be able to see the whole thing because the images are linked, but it's page 1 that's giving me issues. 2204 APX - 10x Poster2.afpub
  14. I found the way to create a background grid in Affinity Publisher, but is there a way to create a 2,3,4,6 etc.-column grid adjusted for the margins?

    That's amazing. I love Affinity, that is exactly what I was looking for!
  16. Hello, I don't think this is the same problem another post, but I thought I would let you know regardless. It seems that about every time I try and place multiple files (as opposed to one at a time) in Publisher, it crashes. I am using the latest version but I think this was happening in the previous version as well. Thank you!
  17. Hey guys, I love the Affinity Suite, and I made the jump from Adobe CS4 to Affinity several months back (and am very happy I did). One thing I am still lacking though is a good PDF editor. I need one that has basic page layout functions (add/remove/rearrange pages), but also has things like OCR capability. I know this isn't technically an Affinity question, but since the forums have been super helpful in everything else, I figured I would ask fellow designers here. Any recommendations? Thank you!

    PDF Editor

    Yeah, definitely not a fan of the UI for Studio 2018, but it seems to work for want I want it for. I have Acrobat on my other computer, but not on this one, so I need something. @atlrob, does Foxit have the ability to do impositions?

    PDF Editor

    Hey guys, I was able to find PDF Studio which offers OCR, page layout/editing, color separations, digital signatures, impositions and more, so I'm good to go now. Thanks for all the advice! I hope this helps someone else out as well!

    Also, another feature I'm wondering if any other programs have is "output preview." I really like being able to check out the color separations in a document to make sure all of the colors are what they're supposed to be. Does Publisher do this?

    Thank you guys! Gerard O, no I'm not on Windows anymore. My husband, a non-artist, really wanted me to switch to Mac. So I am now a Mac user (although still have much more familiarity with Windows and often lament how I prefer many Windows features). Firstdefence, thank you! I didn't know that, and I will definitely be using that. Thank you!

    Thanks guys, I have been using Publisher a lot lately (and loving it), but what I'm really wanting right now is something with OCR (actually so I can remake a document in Publisher). slvJoe, does Scribus do OCR? MickRose, how did you find Abbyy? What does you like about it besides the OCR?
  23. It looks like there is some major discrepancy when it comes to using the text wrap features. As you can see, there is supposed to be .2" of space on the left, and there is none. When I went back to try again and change it, it erased all of my settings, but the left side worked while adding space to the bottom (which was unlocked and still at 0"). When I tried to compensate for that and decrease space at the bottom (by making it a negative value), it did nothing to the bottom but changed the top instead. All of that to say, the text wrap menu needs some help and is very inconsistent. Also, I'm not sure if it''s the beta or this document (which is by no means huge), but for some reason, its is moving very slowly and it takes 5-10 minutes to do simple tasks because of the lag.

    Thin Line along stroke

    Hello, I am using macOS High Sierra 10.13.6 on version 1.6.1 of Affinity Designer, and this problem keeps occurring. When I add a stroke to text or a shape, in between the text and the shape there is a very faint line of a different color, see the screenshot below. Unfortunately, it saves out that way too (see the attached PNG). I'm not sure if the line actually prints, but it's still a problem for web work. Is there something I can do about this?
