  1. Hi! There seems to be an issue with bleed on placed .afpub (v1 or v2) files. Recreate: Just import via Place or just drag and drop... Select to use with bleed from the dropdown menu. Shows bleed as white bar on left and top. Cheers!
  2. Hi! So i made some AHK script as Affinity Publisher always uses last used folder for export. Would be a handy time saver to set the default output folder to the one the file you work with is in, right? Here you go: Just make sure to set or adjust the hotkey for "Open Folder in Explorer" in Files menu, i use Ctrl+Shift+E I'm not super professional coder and AHK is sometimes behaving a bit inconsistent, so let me know how it's working on your system. #NoEnv ; Recommended for performance and compatibility with future AutoHotkey releases. #Warn ; Enable warnings to assist with detecting common errors. SendMode Input ; Recommended for new scripts due to its superior speed and reliability. SetWorkingDir %A_ScriptDir% ; Ensures a consistent starting directory. #SingleInstance, force ;#NoTrayIcon ;if everything is working fine for you, you might enable that line. #F12::ExitApp ;Quit Script with Win+F12 #IfWinActive ahk_exe Publisher.exe !^+s:: { ;We are working in Publisher,so we get the window id: hwndPub := WinActive("ahk_exe Publisher.exe") ;Open Folder where the File lies!: BlockInput, On ;make sure nothing interrupts the hotkeys and to keep the right window active Send, ^+e ;You should set an hotkey for "Open Folder in Explorer" in Files menu, in that example its Ctrl+Shift+E WinWaitActive, ahk_class CabinetWClass,,2 ;wait for explorer to open up. BlockInput, Off if ErrorLevel { ;timeout occured! (Also happens if the file is not saved in the first place) Send, !^+s ;open export window non the less, but without the path magic return ;and exit } BlockInput, On Sleep, 100 ;tiny buffer just to make sure everyhing is ready. Path := GetActiveExplorerPath() ;get the path of the folder where the file is in. WinClose, A WinActivate, ahk_exe Publisher.exe Send, !^+s ;Affinity Publisher default hotkey for Export Alt+Ctrl+Shift+s BlockInput, Off WinWaitNotActive, ahk_id %hwndPub% ;Main Publisher not in Focus anymore! WinWaitNotActive, Export ;Wait for export window to close (this also includes the more options window) WinWaitActive, ahk_class #32770,,3 ;wait for save window with timeout! if ErrorLevel return ;timeout occured! ;now enter the path of the file source folder! BlockInput, On Sleep, 300 ;tiny buffer just to make sure everyhing is ready. Send, {AltDown}e{AltUp} ;windows hotkey to go directly to address bar, as writing directly to control seems messy on win11 Send, %Path%/{enter} ;send path BlockInput, Off } return GetActiveExplorerPath() { explorerHwnd := WinActive("ahk_class CabinetWClass") if (explorerHwnd) { for window in ComObjCreate("Shell.Application").Windows { if (window.hwnd==explorerHwnd) { return window.Document.Folder.Self.Path } } } }
  3. Ok... so i got annoyed today and made myself an AutoHotkey Script that automatically selects the currents file's Folder as default for Export. Not sure if i am allowed to upload the script here...? Basically, it works like this: File->Show File in Explorer. Copy address from navigation bar of file explorer window to variable. Close explorer window. Back in Publisher open File->Export. Adjust your Export settings. On "Save As" window it pastes the variable with the file path in the navbar. Lot of time saved! Edit: Link to the Windows AHK Script: Here
  4. Hey, so my quesion is this: So in the color options there is a checkbox to convert to defined Color Profile (and give a warning), but colors also get converted from 100%K to pseudo black like C84/M63/Y48/K84. Am i missing an option to convert to profile but keep the actual color values? Or do i have to remind myself to check the document settings first before doing a thing, in the hopes i never oversee this detail? Thanks in advance.
  5. @thomaso Thank you so much! That workaround saves ma lot of time! Oh and there is still a bug with BoundingBox detection on some linked .afpub files, which messes up placement (my workaround is to use .pdf instead of .afpub).
  6. Any news on this topic!? Also have this kind of issue, that no matter what it sends RGB to the printer. If i create a PDF and print that, no problem.
  7. Hi! It would be handy if an Affinity document would remember the last disk location i exported it to for each document individually. Now it just seems to open the folder where i exported a file last time, which in my case is often a folder of a different project, instead of the one i'm currently working on. It's not a huge hassle, but would be time saving in the long run.
  8. I use a font manager on Win10 (FontBase), it just would be so much easier to handle a few hundred projects with "font folders" instead of activating / deactivating all those fonts the "manual" way.
  9. The thing is, i get a lot of idml files with two Folders one called "Links" for images and one called "Document fonts" for font files. It's part of the adobe file package thingy. It would really help a lot not to install all these fonts that don't get used outside a certain File or Project.
  10. I know dots per inch should represent the amount of information in a "Picture", so less Information, should usually still end up in less file size... It works as it should when i export a jpg out of it. OK, i found out why that is happening, if i work with an Image layer (imported from stock panel) it keeps this image information intact no matter what document setting. If i rasterize the Image layer after import, it works as expected, which makes sense. Stupid me
  11. Hi! If i open a pic with lets say 300dpi and save the .afphoto file... it has like 40MB. So i change to 10dpi and save again.... the file size won't change? Win10 Pro x64 Afphoto
  12. So, the fix for the "replace image in picture frame" without messing up its position/scale will come next update, i hope?
  13. Hi people! So, i opened my file in AP, and got an error saying that some images were missing (i moved them to tidy up the folder) and i was like "ok, lets replace em with the original images in a different folder. The Problem is, if i replace a pic, also the position and scaling gets reset. Question: Is there a way to re-link those picture frames to keep everything in place?
