  1. 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!

  2. 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 When I go to export, I get several errors such as "your table of contents is out of date," warnings of missing images, and a warning about text frame overflows.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!

  3. 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!

  4. 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!

  5. 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!

  6. 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?

  7. 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!

  8. 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.

  9. 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?
