  1. My RGB max value is 100 in publisher, 255 in Photo. Why? Publisher, photo
  2. Win 7 sp1 Publisher If I move the X origin 8.5 inches to the right on a two page publication, so that the zero is centred on the spine, that X origin does not carry over when the master page is applied to regular pages. To get the ruler zeroed on the spine, it appears that the X origin must be relocated separately for each and every two pages.
  3. You are probably right. I am getting a msg about an inability to connect to my Event Notification Service on that profile even though it is set to autoload. I can get in another way, though.I have restored AFF Pub to my earlier working version for now. Will try to load v 1.8.0.xxx at another time. Thanks for looking into it.
  4. My new download of Publisher blocked my Win 7 SP1 from opening. The msg was "System Event Notification Services" not connecting, or something. Had to uninstall, do a full DskChk, then restored to an earlier restore point just to get in to Windows on my usual profile. I used an admin profile to get to "Restore". I currently have 1.7.x back.
  5. Video is fuzzy and moves too fast to be helpful. Not sure what you are promoting: your techniques or your templates. Nice music though.
  6. Thank you all for your responses, especially AlanPickup for pointing me in the direction of A. Designer. It's a useful set and I have imported it to A. Publisher. I'll also check out an A.Pub sample file. I found the Asset function very handy for popping in recurring logos and snippets of text. Sam S.
  7. Win 7 Publisher build I've seen built-in assets before, but now I have lost them. When I go to import them via the assets panel I have no idea where they reside. I'm not talking about my custom assets, which I can access but pre-built assets that I have seen in Publisher, Designer and Photo. Any idea where they are? Thanks, S.
  8. Brilliant! Thank you. I missed it under Document Statistics.
  9. I don't use titles. What I need is a field that will pick up the filename of the current document and will change if the doc is saved-as under a new name.
  10. Oh? Then why does the file name come up in the Title field and stick there?
  11. Give a new Publisher file the name "A". Save it. Close it. Open file "A" and save it as "B". Open "Fields" in saved document "B" and under "Document Information" the "Title" field will read "A", which is what the name of what the file WAS, not what it IS now. There is a title-filename mismatch that persists. Even if you close the app down and start afresh, the mismatch persists. See attachment. Yes I know, I can manually change the Title field but a) that's not productive and b) it doesn't stick. The title field in "B" reverts to the first document's filename. I could hard wire it, but that defeats the purpose of a field doesn't it? The field seem unable to update itself automatically and there is no manual key for doing so. Win 64, AP
  12. I just discovered that "Global" colours are the only type of colours where if you change the spec of an already used colour, say add a bit of cyan, all the objects carrying that "Global" colour will change accordingly. Global colours seem to be specific to a document and are not "global" in the sense of being universal to all documents or all the affinity apps at that point in time. Exporting a palette of Global colours does make them available for other documents or apps via "import palette". I would have used the term "linked colour", "coupled colour" or better still "Editable Colour".
  13. Flexibility is nice and so is having various colour spaces available. The key problem I have is useability. I really don't have a mental construct of how the colour tools work in Publisher and there appears to be no good explanation available. I guess I got spoiled using InDesign.
