  1. Could inner/outer shadow paragraph decoration be added? The idea is boxed decorations is great, with a wide variety of strokes and endcaps. However, dropshadows would add options to emphasize text (i.e. a boxed paragraph).
  2. We may have discrete Sections available as Fields but running footers/headers making use of specific paragraph types (i.e. Heading 1, which might have Flow break to the top of the next page). Ideally, we could configure which paragraph styles are accessible in View > Studio > Fields. My suggestion would be to have it user-configurable from right-click the "Edit <Paragraph Style>" Paragraph > Field Options Available as Field? First or last available? On Page or Spread? (see relevance of first/last in previous question) This would make for some really robust footer/headers on master pages, esp. in education or technical materials with dense, structure order to their contents, allowing us to guide the read through. The Field referencing the other Paragraph style occurring in the main document could be styled by any existing paragraph style as expected.
  3. Same thing for me. That unhandled exception due to graphics in Master Pages is a known bug in .58 -- hold off for now and test on the next build
  4. Background Added an EPS file, exported from Affinity Designer, for use in Affinity Publisher. Dragging into the document is fine, especially once it's resized. The issue comes into play with a massive performance hit *after* applying wrapping around an object. It's a round vector image with transparent/hollow interior sections. The performance hit brings my machine to crawl but I'm using a fairly powerful rig: AMD Ryzen 2700 (8 Core, 16 Thread) 32 GB of DDR4 Ram @ 2933Mhz AMD Radeon RX 580 w/ 8 GB GDDR5 Potential Causes Regardless of wrap style chosen: square, tight, inside, or edge, there's a massive performance hit. During this, background objects are sometimes selected as well (but I can't reproduce this reliably). This leads to applying the setting on an element that wasn't selected due to UI response issues.
  5. Have you tried applying a master page style for the first and last page (i.e. exterior cover) of the document that adds the additional gutter needed for the binding? You'd probably want to create a second master page for the interior, if any text is on the interior side of the cover.
  6. Will be testing the below error and updating above:
  7. This appeared in my document too. I'll try recreating it without master spread graphics and report back! EDIT: Removing graphic from master spreads works. Looking forward to this being patched!
  8. Background I created a 48 page document with a mix of text style, large raster graphics (1-5 MB photos), and vector graphics and two master styles, one for the cover exterior and another for the interior pages. ANSI Letter 5.5 x 8.5 pages in 11 x 8 spreads. I use a second, raster version of each full-spread photo that is blurred and saved to JPEG format. I overlay it to improve contrast. I used the default "prefers embedded files" setting. Attempts to Fix Issue Recreated document from scratch but selected prefer to link to file (much like how I use InDesign), rather than embedded. File size wasn't that different, which surprised me (43 MB for linked vs 47 MB for embedded) Crash still occurs when saving and attempting to reopen the file, throwing this reference: cb9c24ca-1885-41dc-9901-a1bc033de38a Crash occurs before any pages or graphics can load. Further Testing It appears that this is a known issue with raster graphics on Master Spread pages. I recreated the document without graphics on master spreads and it saved and loaded just fine.
  9. I'm working on a graphic-heavy report and re-pagination from the layout breaks what would be accurate citations. This is handled manually at the moment (unless there's a way to jury-rig the Index manager?). Request Citation Manager in the top three formats (APA, MLA, and Chicago/Turabian). Ability to set whether the document uses an end-of-section or on-page-where-citation-occurs approach.
  10. Background I setup a text and did auto-flow across multiple pages using one master page format. I realized the margins were excessive and wished to change them. Steps Taken Modified master page spread and reapplied to the spreads in questions. No change. Created new Master Page with the specs I wanted and applied. No change. Work Around Select all pages and edit their margins as a group *or* Delete all pages and reflow. As a whole, despite this, I'm really impressed with Affinity Publisher for beta software.
