  1. Photoshop is a photo editing application and Publisher a DTP application - two different beasts. It's better to compare like against like rather than apples and Tow Trucks. Adobe InDesign not only doesn't have a snapshot option but doesn't have a History panel either and these two applications are normally compared against each other. I'd guess that a snapshot option for a DTP application is a lot more complicated to implement than in a photo editing app. It's also worth bearing in mind that Indesign currently costs £238 per year as an individual app compared to the likely £48.99 (or whatever the pricing for each Affinity app is at Publisher launch) for the release version of Publisher. I don't expect it to compare 100% with Indesign yet but already it has features that Indesign doesn't and runs so much faster.
  2. The dictionary files that come with APub look like standard Hunspell files: C:\Program Files\Affinity\Publisher Public Beta\Resources\Dictionaries\ The User dictionary is here but it's not user editable: C:\Users\Carl\AppData\Roaming\Affinity\Publisher\1.0 (Beta)\user\dictionary.propcol
  3. It works for me. Did you make sure that the "include printers marks" box was ticked in the Export Settings and the boxes for the setting you want to appear in the PDF were also ticked? If they all were then I'm not sure why they shouldn't have appeared in the output PDF.
  4. I can reproduce it. It only appears at certain magnifications in the pdf such as 125% and 400%. It doesn't appear on a printed hard copy though so my guess is that it's a screen driver issue. On the sample pdf I attached it only appears on the car jpg and not on the dancing couple png. Test.afpub test.pdf
  5. You're quite right, my bad. Adobe decided to start charging from CS5 onwards and I think they're now part of the Creative Cloud suite as Adobe Stock.
  6. InDesign comes with Free Artist made Templates and given that it is intended for professionals I can't see any reason why there shouldn't be some for Affinity Publisher. At the very least some blank templates for common document types would be useful.
  7. I'm able to reproduce it in 257. If you use the scroll button to increase the number of pixel it stops at 400 px. Clicking on the ellipsis icon to the right allows you to continue past 400pixels once you've added the tab.
  8. It locked Affinity Publisher when I tried opening your document. It looks as if the file is corrupted. The linked resource file message appears because you have linked rather than embedded (usually image) files and then moved the files to a different location. But APub doesn't normally lock up at that point. I guess that this the only document that causes the problem? That's not much help though I'm afraid. Do you have a working back up of the document? Otherwise someone else or one of the Affinity moderators might have a solution.
  9. Hi Samuel Are you asking about creating guides that appear on all the pages in your publication or have I misunderstood? If you are you can place the guides in your Master Page(s) and they will appear on all the pages linked to those Masters.
  10. I've just tested it. I haven't moved the tab from the lef tpanel but I have the Assets & TOC tabs there as well. Using your document it takes about 3 seconds to move from the Assets of TOC tab to the Pages tab as it rescans the pages. I have Windows 10 pro installed on this spec with an NVidia GeForce GTX 1060 graphics card.
  11. Personally I either use CTRL-Z to undo and CTRL-Y to redo, or the History list to undo several previous actions, but undo and redo button could be useful options on the tool bar - or they could be options in the Customise Toolbar dialogue.
  12. In PP the transparency tool works on all objects including pictures. It doesn't seem to work on images in picture frames in AP for some reason but does an all other objects. Inserting a picture using the place image tool works fine though so the only way to create a graduated transparency effect on an image that has been placed using the Image frame is to create a shape over it and add the transparency to that.. Is it likely that it may be implemented at some point for image frames as well?
  13. In AP each object seems to be created as a separate layer and adjustments are effected on the open layer. It would be useful to have the Adjustments available as a menu item when right-clicking. Layer effects are already available as an option and whilst it's possible to access the options either from the Layers menu or the Layers panel, it would be a lot more convenient to be able to access it from the right-click menu.
  14. ?? I couldn't find it. I may be looking in the wrong place.
