  1. I opened Affinity Photo on my Windows machine just now and was prompted to download the latest update. But when I open Affinity Photo on my Mac I do not get this automatic prompt. How do I go about updating my Mac version?
  2. That won't do the trick. For the printer (machine) to recognize selected pages within a mixed project as b&w, the whole page has to be grey-scale. But the way one sets a document up, as far as I can determine, the whole thing has to be specified either some form of color, or some form of grey-scale. So, I'm asking if I'm missing something, that there is a way to format selected pages within a single doc as being either entirely color or b&w. Thanks!
  3. My question is whether it is possible, in a project having photographs on almost every page, to format it for mixed color and b&w printing, the main objective being to keep cost down. I learn, talking with a printer, that the b&w pages must have grey scale specified rather than full 4-color black specs embedded in the PDF. Otherwise, the machine being printed on will recognize the pages as full color even though the images are b&w. As long as each page is formatted either grey-scale or cmyk, the printer will recognize that & charge accordingly. It appears, looking at "Document Setup" that the only option is to select either color or grey-scale for the entire document. Can someone tell me if there is a way I can select particular pages in a document for grey-scale instead of color? Thanks, in advance, from a total newbie!
  4. This approach is a bit cumbersome, but it seems to work. Tho I've never been clear the specific moment to activate "synchronise from selection." I put in my distances, then hit "synchronise," then close the text wrap box. I think that is right...
  5. Perhaps if you change the start page from right to left?
  6. MEB & Dave - thanks for posting! Took me a while to discover these responses. In the interim, I'm working on a book with many photos, so having an easy way to adjust the default settings to my preference would save me gobs of time!! I will try the approach using a shape.
  7. This is an essential tool, for instance, for appending captions to photos!
  8. I am unable to find a way to set my text wrap distance preferences so that I don't have to adjust them every time from the very low or zero settings that appear when I use this function.
  9. Oops - I did not realize there were more tools. Thanks, Walt!
  10. I downloaded the latest Beta today & see that in "View" the "Hide All" button (for bleed, guides, margins, +3 more) is no longer present. Is there some way I can restore this? This is a really useful option; now I have to activate or deactivate each one separately, a time consuming nuisance.
  11. Text Wrap icons are gone from the latest ( Beta download! How do I restore them to the Toolbar? I go to View>Customize Toolbar--but the Text Wrap icons are not there.
  12. Yes - retroactively. Actually, I think my original margins remain - but I'm seeing a purple border I believe represents margin, and it is not right...
  13. That worked - thanks! Using this on an existing series of spreads, all my text and images are still there; however, I find every page now has the same margin settings. What I want is a wider margin at the center of opposing pages. I thought I would create a right hand and left hand master & apply those where appropriate, but I seem to be unable to create a pair single page masters with differing margin settings. I want a left hand master with 5/8" (.625") margins except 1" on the right side, and a right hand master with 5/8" margins except 1" on the left side. whenever I try to put the 1" margin on the left or right, all the other settings revert... Any suggestions?
  14. Chris - thanks for quick input, but that did not work. I'm already set up with start page on left...
