  1. Hi, I just downloaded the latest version of Publisher beta and when I try to place an image, create a box or anything, it disappear when it's not on the page, as you can see on the printscreen. Moreover, you can see that the image is visible onto the bleed on one side, but not on the other side. Is it a bug or is it just an option I don't know? Thank you.
  2. 1. Allow to see bleed : it's essential, but I think you got it with all the comments I saw about it. Also, adding bleed should be in the new document dialog box. 2. Someone told me the pasteboard had no limits, but that's not what I see (see my picture below : the circle seems to disappear beyond an invisible limit). If there's to be limits : allow us to change it, and see it. 3. Need a control panel to manually change the elements (pictures, graphic elements, text, everything) dimension (pixels and percentage mode). It's very useful to adapt large posters to smaller formats like I do a lot. If there is already one, I apologies for not seeing it, and can you please tell me where it is? 4. When we place a new picture, it should be by default in a picture frame. 5. Adding + Deleting anchor point tool could be great. 6. Placing the different control panels in column instead of in a line could allow the user to see more of them and save space. 7. We should be able to select an element without encompassing it totally : when we have a few elements to select at the same time, it's easier to do just by maintain clicking and rapidly pass over it without necesserily encompass it totally. For now, the way we can select an element in Affinity Publisher is exactly like in Microsoft Publisher, and it's irritant and non productive in my opinion. That's all for now. I hope it can be helpful for the final version. I am very optimist to adopt the Afinity serie for my work.
  3. Thank you for your answers. 1. Ok, so it's not just me. I saw other comments about the fact we can't see the bleed preview, and I think the developpers will understand we need it for the official version. 2. The pasteboard seems to actually have limits (see my first picture). 3. Ok... I know that Publisher is not a copy of Indesign, but I think the delete anchor point tool (second picture... sorry if it's not the right term) is useful, but I guess I can manage without it. 4. Ok, get it for the bug. But I don't see the transform tabs... I often make large posters that I have to adapt to small formats and the control allowing me to reduce my items by percentage is very useful.
  4. Hi, I really want to adopt Affinity Publisher, but I have a few questions or issues, and it's not easy for me in english (and maybe that's why I'm struggeling a little in Affinity Publisher) : 1. I found where to add bleed, but why not asking if you want bleed directly when creating the new document? And then there's another step to add your bleed, but when I'm doing it, I don't see my bleed... I don't understand. 2. How can I adjust the pasteboard? Why can't I see the limits (up and down) of my pasteboard (I see it only when my objects disappear in it)? 3. I create a simple shape with the pen tool : is it possible to delete points by using a simple tool, I mean faster than selecting my points and then pressing delete on my keyboard? 4. With the images : where can I adjust my images size (you know by changing the widht, height, by pixels or percentage) in other words, I'm searching the picture control? I'm adjusting my picture, but when I try to adjust the picture frame, my picture is getting back to its original size, and I have to start again. Thank you.
