    PDF opens as blank page

    Joachim. I also re-saved the original pdf file using my PDF-XChange viewer, and the resultant file also opened right up in Publisher. So, I've learned a thing or two here.

    PDF opens as blank page

    Joachim. I didn't have IrfranView installed, and have never used it much in the past; but I did install it today and . . . 1. It opened up the 10 page pdf file realy quickly. This could be the fastest pdf viewer I have. 2. I quickly and easily re-saved the file, which then opened in Publisher. Nice fix. Reminds me of the work-arounds we used to do at work. Thanks

    PDF opens as blank page

    I do not know who or how these PDFs were made, I was extracting content from them for use in another document. I don't have Adobe tools to do this, I rely on the Affinity tools. I downloaded a free tool that converted these to images that I could use. https://www.nchsoftware.com/imageconverter/index.html
  4. I have PDF files that open as blank pages. PDFs are attached. These files also open as blanks in Affinity Photo. These files are likely just raster scans, nothing fancy. Other PDF files open as expected. Win 10. Affinity Publisher 1994TrekCatalog_22.pdf 1994TrekCatalog_10.pdf
  5. Sorry about this post. I went back and did this again, and it works. I must have done something that I can't reproduce. There is no problem to report. I have selected multiple lines at one time and I want to change them from dashed line to solid line, but this does not work. I can change color and stroke size of multiple selections, but not stroke style.

    Print Preview

    Walt. I'm on Windows 10, printing to an HP Laser Jet Pro MFP M225 PCL 6. I previously used an HP Laser Jet 5. I cannot find any print preview Function in the printer properties. The predecessor to Affinity Publisher was Serif PagePlus, I had PagePlus X9 which might have been the last iteration of that product, and it contained a full screen print preview that was as good as a proof print. Until Affinity publisher has something like that, I can't see using it. !!! I checked my Canon color inkjet, and that DOES offer a nice preview. (This is news to me!) But my HP LaserJet does not.
  7. Or at least a BIGGER print preview...

    Print Preview

    Please, please, PLEASE make a print preview I can see without leaving nose prints on my screen. I print labels for everything, and the print preview in Publisher shows an ANSI Letter page on the screen the size of a postage stamp. I cant see what will print. Please make this more useful.
  9. Display of stroke width does not dynamically change as i move the slider. As I move the slider for Width, the display of the point size does not change. When I let go of the slider control, then the display shows the width.
  10. YES!! I tried this in an earlier version without success, but it works now. THANKS. Now, if we had a useful preview...
  11. The problem I had with the printing being off about .1875 inch at the top and the left seems to be fixed in Publisher version ...but I really need to be able to save the Layout data that I use for printing labels. Recreating this every time is a pain. And the print preview is uselessly small.
  12. Pauls: Attached is as close as I can get to the original, these files are updated often, and I don't keep all versions. This was composed in PagePlus X9 and saved as pdf. Meeting Schedule for 201811.pdf
  13. Tried that, didn't work.
  14. It is zero. didn't fix it.
