    I hope I didn't come across harsh. I meant it politely. We have different workflows, I believe that the developers benefit from hearing use types.

    Another thing. There is no visual difference between having the frame selected or the image, that would be very handy.

    Thisismandatory got a reaction from Patrick Connor in Affinity Publisher Public Beta - 1.7.0.133 (mac)   
    I have been using it recently for various things. It started as a hope to find something I could use instead of indesign. So far it is progressing nicely and it might actually fit my night in a pinch, with the attractive pricing I am considering to actually invest in this one when it comes out. And considering that at the first beta I was taken aback, this is quite something.
    In light of this positive and encouraging post for the developers, I would like to give only one major thing I would need/love to see come soon, and this are footnotes and endnotes. 
    Thanks for being busy and updating us with newer betas.

    picture frame and place image are the same thing. In the end both serve to place an image on the document. Them behaving differently makes it even more of an issue. Especially if you would have a mix of both in the document and in the end there is no visual cue to differentiate them.
    The crop tool can be useful, especially when is used to crop multiple placed objects. But in the perspective of an image does the same as the frame itself.

    Hi ol4f,
    We've fixed the issue with the custom zoom and placement being lost when a picture frame is resized. This will be in the next build which is coming in the next few days. Please bear with us and try again when that is available.

    Should be able to have both absolute (units) and relative (%) values when manipulating any object/frame/content. I currently cannot get a mis-sized object to return to correct proportions because I don't know the actual units needed to maintain its general size but get back to having no distortion.  I should be able to type %H %W to the same value and know I now have its aspect ratio correct.
    Fitting:
    Fit Contents in Frame Proportionately (means entire contents are visible with existing frame size - no cropping occurs) Fill Frame with Contents Proportionately (means the existing frame size will be filled and the contents effectively cropped) Fit Frame to Contents (means the frame changes size to match dimensions of contents - no cropping occurs) Once fitted, it should be a starting point. When I adjust the frame-content set the crop established by the fitting should not change.

    At the moment it seems way too easy to strech (distort the proportion) of pictures.
    I don't see any usecase for that, and still this is like the first thing that happens if you start pulling on a placed image.
    Cropping a picture is much more important for me, because this i need to do every day.

    Ok I have now more report on using the picture frame tool. This in my opinion is lacking and needs polishing. After setting up a dummy book I can list annoyances that should be addressed.
    As I said the frame needs to conform to the content. Now the workflow looks way cluttered. Setting up the image with the frame filled proportionally. Adjusting to fit the page to my liking. If the frame happens to go into bleed, since this has yet not been implemented I have to manually adjust frame size for it. Because any resizing of the frame will change the size of the image as well, I have to first fit the frame to the content, so I can enlarge the frame into the bleed (only one side). This is now done with copying the image size in mm and copy the value to the frame. Then the frame is adjusted for bleed in one dimension. Prior to that I have to set up a guide so I do not loose the positioning. 
    Second issue is that the images get embedded automatically. Because I moved the folders around I cannot simply make them linked, I have to replace every single image and after that make it linked. Here another issue arises the picture frame does not remember the setting I have chosen for it. This means that I have to go to properties and choose again how the image should fit in the frame. Very cumbersome for now.
    Finally the workflow as is slow as there is no shortcut for any of it. I know I can do my own shortcuts, but I think most of this would be basic functionality hence I would expect pre-made shortcuts.

    This if implemented, I could see as a great selling point. I like the idea a lot! But I have to agree that there are more important issues to resolve implement, that said I would love to see this added along the line, at some update.
