    Pdf import

    Hello there, Many thanks for the Affinity Publisher 1.7 app i bought. My problem is how to get the imported pdf files to "take on" my properties on my MasterPage. It doesn't follow the right margin. I have tried "Open" then browse and find my file and then open it. It opens nicely but doesn't follow the margin I have set out. The same happens when opening through "Place" and then drag out the text frame. The same for Publisher Beta, as well as in the sharp version, when I import files from InDesign and Adobe FrameMaker. Also how to get the text frames to appear like one text frame on each page. The pdf book files I want to use (to edit for reprint) are originally created many years ago in Pagemaker 6.5 for Mac. I tried to convert them in Indesign CS6 but gave up, to much editing and formatting. AP opens it better. Some of my pdf book files are created in Adobe FrameMaker 6 for Mac but they discontinued that app for Mac many years ago. Can someone here guide or help me to a solution or is it a bug? If someone has made a book template would also be fine, maybe I have set wrong properties. Attached is a screen dump of a page. On forehand thanks, Bertil Mac Mini, OS Sierra.
  3. Hi, again I thank you for your hard job in doing A. P to a great application. My question is the following: When I import a pdf, let's say a 16 page brochure with text and pictures into the Affinity Publisher, it opens very nice.All elements are there. However, it shows every text line as a separate text frame and I want the text imported in one textframe, as it is in the pdf. Is there a way of getting all the imported text in one frame, at least paragraf wise or even better one frame per page? Best wishes
  4. Hello when I import a pdf with text mixed with illustrations the text shows up in several text frames. I want to merge the text frames into one for a simplified formatting etc. How to accomplish that? Thankful for help.
  5. Hi it seems that I have a printing problem. I have made a short 8 page boket papersize A4 and folder it will turn out as A5. Impositioning works fine, but both the text and straight lines are "wobbling". I work in macMini OS Sierra and have a Canon Pixma 7550 for home use. Maybe its only on my equipment, I don't know. In .afpub it all looks fine. Attached is the .afpub file from with I have created a pdf through the Export and 300 dtp. Some one that can help? INDVIELSE AF EN KIRKE 31:10 2018.afpub

    Symbol

    Thank you all so much for your answers, that helps. I will find out if they are on my Mac Mini, Mac OS Sierra, font list.
  7. Hi there I work quite a lot with liturgy books and liturgical text. Is there somewhere the two symbols showed in the attached photo? Is there a way to insert that symbol if I would find it on the internet?
  8. Thanks for your answers and for a fantastic product. I will definately buy it in its sharp version.
  9. Thank you Old Bruce, this is what I was looking for. Are there any thoughts around my question regarding the text overflow icon?
  10. Hi there, many thanks to Affinity developer team for a fantastic application. I really love it so far. Maybe I have missed an answer regarding my topic already given in this forum, if so, sorry. My suggestions are the following: Overflow icon: Since the overflow icon is very small and sometimes even difficult to see, I would prefer the way it was placed in the old Pagemaker application from Aldus/later Adobe. It was placed at the bottom of the text frame and in the middle as well and it was indicated with a red + if there was a text overflow, if not it was empty. You just clicked the + and your curser changed into a simple text icon, you placed it on the page you wanted to link the text into and that's it. Very clear, clean and simple. Font list: In the font list I would like to see the five most recently used fonts in the same way as in so many other applications. That would make it much easier instead of the long scrolling list when you chose fonts already used in your document. And finally, of cource foot notes, end notes, cross references and book templates. Again many thanks for a good product.
