  1. Hello! Is it possible to manipulate a placed image or the containing frame by a shortcut? (MacOS/Publisher 1.10.4) Using the mouse for the "properties"-menu or rightclick for the contextual-menu isnt very handy for us. In an other well known application its quick&easy by pressing CMD/OPT/SHiFT+E or CMD/OPT+C That goes extremly fast and brings the image/the frame in the expected condition. Thanks for answers!
  2. Gosh - im shocked that this layerconcept is still fact. I do many projects where global layers are mandatory. So now publisher is not usable for me, sorry but this is an factor of exclusion ­čś×
  3. thank you @walt.farrell - exactly what I want. Indeed one step more than necessary but good too.
  4. Yes we know datamerge, but its not as useful. The template as 6 rows by 27 lines (162 tags). Most of the jobs have between 60 and 120 datafields. The customer wants his tags twice, first besides and then beneath. For materialsavings we fill up the rows and go down the lines fltr. Have a look at the screenshot. The textboxes are linked, so if havent a full template we delete complete rows until the plate reaches a rectangle near 6 rows and X lines. If we use the datamerge, there is no linking possible and we cant cut the rows.
  5. we also do some engravings on tags. this are very small tags which we get on a template. the textsource is an excel-sheet - the easiest way to center the line (h+v) on each tag is this solution.
  6. screenshot added as edit to the original post - sorry for that!
  7. Thank you for this marvelous hint! Didnt recognized this status-line, in the future I will have a look at it.
  8. Hello! I want to copy any marked element by using a mathematic operation in the transform-box (see screenshot). In the actual case, I want to copy the marked boxes 50 mm to the left. In an other DTP-Application, this is possible by typing the operation in the transform-box, pressing the ALT(option)-key and hitting Enter/Return. Easy and the result fits perfect. Sadly in Publisher it isnt possible - that slows down the workflow. Martin
  9. Hi! Im using Publisher 1.10.4 and Beta on Mac. I want do copy a textbox and place it directly beside the sourcebox. In a wellknown DTP-app I have to click on the sourcebox, than I drag it by mouse and holding the ALT- and the SHIFT-key directly beside the sourcebox. The destinationbox snaps to the border of the sourcebox - it fits perfect without any space. In Affinity Publisher Im missing this behaviour. The box is copied like above - but the snap-function is missing. If I duplicate the box and move it after the duplication-process closley to the source - it snaps to the source as expected before. Please fix - thank you!
  10. Uploads of the INDD-PDF and the screenshots are done. A small hint to our workflow in INDD: In previous versions of INDD, you have to place the "Original"-PDF on the masterpages. If you placed the original pdf on page 1 + 2 and do then a datamerge, the exported pdf was as big as now in Publisher. In the meantime, it does not matter whether the PDFs are placed on the sample page or on the regular pages.
  11. Hi! Thanks for this quick response - the upload is done. Please reply if any further actions are needed. The upload contains: Original PDF from our cutsomer Excel-File with addresses the Publisher-file from which we generate the personalized document the personalized Publisher-file
  12. Hi! I do a Datamerge for printing an adress on the backside of a postcard. I placed the original PDF on two masterpages in Publisher 1.9.4 1082. The PDF-File is set to "passthrough". After generating the Publisherfile of 1.688 adresses (very quick ) - I stunned. After the datamerge the exported PDF with 3376 Pages have 3.7 GigaByte. Doing the same procedure in InDesign, the result ist 6 MegaByte. OK, for sure this is because of the PDF-Feature XObjects which APublisher do not support? Serif, please please take it on your ToDo-List ... its important (not only to us). Regards, Martin
  13. +1 for this feature(set). Need the option for an object to mark it as "non printable" and export pdfs with layers which are not printable.
