    What is Affinity Publisher For?

    Like for example a novel. The pages where chapters start usually have a different look than pages that only contain text. So those would have text styles for headings and a paragraph style (think space between heading and text etc.). In Quark I have a master page for those that I drag onto those pages etc.

    Thanks. How would you go about chapter titles? Would you style every one of them manually or do a master for those?

    What is Affinity Publisher For?

    Hey, Fixx, what would be your process for setting up a 500 page long book in Publisher then? Just curious :-)
  4. But the numbers would need to start with the number 5 then (assuming the front matter is made of pages 1-4). ...
  5. Question: If you take a novel, for example, the front matter has no page numbers on it. The numbering starts usually with the first chapter, that means, that the count may start with the number 5 on that page. Is this already doable in AP? Workaround would be, to let the count run from the first page und hide that under a white rectangle until it reaches the first chapter, but it would not be that professional, I guess :-)

    Book publishing

    An official statement by someone from the team would be much appreciated here! I also would use publisher mainly for creating books for printing (novels in a single pdf), so I would need master pages for setting up the main text and chapter titles, front and back matter etc., linked text frames in master pages etc. Will some of this functionality be implemented in the final version or not? Just wondering. Thanks
  7. I do books (novels) as well and I would be curious, which workflow the Affinity Team has in mind for the final version for doing stuff like this? regards

    File Corruption?

    The App crashes for me all the time and I assume that it will take a lot, until it will be ready to be officially published. Nonetheless it makes a very good impression and I'm looking forward working with it :-)
  9. The spell check lines even stay in the frame, if you delete the text.

    How do I set up a basic novel?

    Next bug: It crashes every time that I want to delete pages. Thrash icon or context menue makes no difference ...

    How do I set up a basic novel?

    Yep, problem with that way is, that you need to apply styles manually then. Need to try if I can select the whole text within one text frame or if I have to apply the styles manually to every page, cause that would suck big :-) Thanks

    How do I set up a basic novel?

    Well, it's a Beta, but I would like to know the usual process for setting up a novel anyway :-)
  13. Okay, I played around a bit today, and a few other questions arose:When I set up a master page (facing) for the novels body text, I add a text box to each of the pages and link them. Then I add text and paragraph styles. When I paste my novels text into the 'normal' page, it adds all the needed pages automatically, but the page on the right side looks like there is another text box overlayed (see attached image).When I don't do a master page, I paste the text directly into a 'normal' page, it adds the pages as well without the messed up overlay thingy. But I would need to add the styles for every page manually and that sucks.Could someone please explain how the process would look like to set up a basic novel? I thought you generate master pages with linked text boxes for the text and the chapter titles, give those styles and paste the text into the 'normal' page, then the needed pages are created automatically and you are basically done. Is that correct or am I missing something here?

Is that correct or am I missing something here? Hyphenations work in german, if you set the language in the styles for hyphenations to german and set those to '1'.
