    Three got a reaction from DrZigZag in Digital Publishing Feature Suggestions - Interactivity   
    I would love it if Affinity Publisher outputted all standard eBook formats and
    allowed for interactivity in eBooks where supported by file type.
    Interactive features would include:
    popups with texts animation sound files ability to turn features on or off within the book page jumps on choice  Since Affinity is the future and interactive books are the future, seems a perfect match to me.
    Right now, there are some add-on interactive features programs or software that are limited to very specific outputs;  Kotobee, iBooks Author, Aquafadas, inkling, Interact Builder, DemiBooks, Atavist, Talespring and others.
    My perfect workflow would be to draft the book,  illustrate it in Designer (with Designer allowing frame animation), design in Publisher including any interactivity, and export across a wide variety of formats.  I realize this is a huge technical challenge, but it is my fantasy workflow.  
    Thank you.

    Hi @Three,
    I have not seen that before. Can you please drag that panel from the Swatches name out on the canvas, resize it and see if they pop back into place? 
    Thanks,
    Gabe.

    Yes, we'll add more export formats in future to support e-publications. (I'm not going to commit to exactly which ones.) For this initial 1.7 release we chose to coast with our existing PDF because we had so much else to do. We have left a lot of work to do over the coming years.

    Very disappointed there is no EPUB export option; that would be the main reason I would want this software. I really hope they add that feature.

    EPUB export from within the application is very handy to have. I use it all the time in Apple Pages.

    I can’t believe that Affinity would release even a Beta version of Publisher without the ability to export to ePub. If the Beta version and testing / consultation process is to mean anything then they’ll sort this before they go any further.

    Three reacted to Alfred in Image brush, Affinity Designer   
    Armed with a suitable PNG image on a transparent background, such as the attached 'Banner.png', follow these steps:
     
    1. Go to the Brushes panel and click on the menu button in the top right-hand corner

     
    2. Choose the option 'New Textured Image Brush' from the bottom of the list and browse to the image file that you want to use

     
    3. Double-click the new brush to display the 'Brush - Editing' dialog

     
    4. Adjust the stroke settings as desired, move the head and tail offsets to mark off the body section, and choose whether you want the body to stretch or repeat.

     
    5. Press 'OK' to close the dialog, and then test your new brush.

    I think the "whole document" crop tool is a must.
    Since it exist in the "File - Document Set up" it is somehow a matter of adding a GUI to this function.
     
    thanks in advace,

    I was playing around with the cropping tool too.
    Dragging an area in your document and hitting enter, Mac makes bleep sound, hit enter again, same bleep... Hmmm...  :huh:
     
    I was expecting "standard crop functionality" because the tool looks like that, because that's what I'm used too.  ;)

    We don't offer the ability to crop the document using the Crop Tool for Designer at the moment. Affinity Photo's Crop tool does crop the document so we might look at combining these tools to offer both.

    @Elfred @Tifrato 
    Thank you both so much for your patience in solving this.
    My error was that I did not install the fonts as they were initially listed by AnyFont.  Strangely the first time I did it I was not prompted to and it displayed all of the fonts in a neat list so I thought I was done. The second time I was prompted to install the fonts.
    So now I do see the Profiles Elfred said I should see, which I didn't before.
    And now, Tifrato, the added font shows up in the Affinity Font List for use in the application.
    So AnyFont appears to work great with Affinity Designer and iPad Pro!  Excluding operator error of course.
    Thank you!

    I just tested AnyFont in Affinity Photo and it worked perfectly well with our Company brand‘s fonts I just installed. @Three: how did you try to install a font with AnyFont? Did you see the Youtube Clip explaining the installation process already? What kind of fonts do you try to import? I had some problems with „WebFonts“...

    I haven’t checked but I’m pretty sure that we can only use *.otf, *.ttf and *.ttc font files, not *.eot, *.svg or *.woff.

    Three reacted to DM1 in Affinity Designer 1.6 on iPad PDF Help File   
    I have attached a Dropbox link to a PDF version of the Affinity Designer IPad apps built in Help file. You can open this file in a reader or iBook and view it while using Designer. 
    I hope you find it as useful as I do.
    Please note that this PDF is not in any way supported by Affinity, nor are they responsible for any errors or omissions,  so please do not refer any errors or omissions in the Document to Affinity. Every attempt has been made (by me) to ensure the content is an accurate representation of the built in Help file, however some errors 'may' have slipped through .
    I will  endeavour to keep it up to date (at least for a little while) . When Publisher comes out I may redo the layout (Pages is a little limited in the area of indexing).
    My Dropbox account is basic and limits daily bandwidth, hopefully that won’t be a problem.
    Here's the link to the folder. 
    https://www.dropbox.com/sh/wulycsq0un4uo6i/AACz5hvGbGrteZB4E9q_HPI5a?dl=0
    UPDATE
    The folder now contains two files. Thanks to the efforts of Glenn, the original file size has been reduced to a mere 14MB, with little loss of resolution.
    Enjoy

    If it really has worked, you should see one or more new configuration profiles under ‘Profiles’ in the Settings app.

    Three reacted to DM1 in How to delete Internal Affinity Designer files   
    @Three The ideal method would be to save a copy elsewhere (on iPad or cloud) and delete from sandbox (project screen) using the 3 bar delete menu. The 3 bar delete menu is unfortunately the only way to delete the apps sandboxed file storage. Yes, one file at a time! Some people have also reported a bug where even after deleting, Affinity still shows the storage occupied. Like many reported bugs, we are still waiting for a solution. There is one other way of releasing the space. Delete the app. Drastic but effective. Save copies of any files you wish to keep. Any sandboxed Files will be deleted with the app.
    Being new I will clarify storage on iPad. AP stores your work in sandbox (where only AP can access it. When you use top left arrow the sandbox file is updated. It also auto updates based on Settings in AP. You should always use the Menu to Save or Save a Copy as this creates a xxxx,afphoto file which you can save/backup  anywhere and access at any time. If you access this file using Open from Cloud (not restricted to cloud locations) then you get a Save menu in main menu while working. Using Save or top left arrow now updates the 'cloud' located file. If you import from cloud, it like starting a new file and edits will again only be sandboxed and may be lost.
    Hope that helps
