  2. Hi, what to do if a file is not getting open? Several files, from 1,7 MB to 11 MB are kept in "Document is loading" state and nothing happens. I can not open them in Designer or Publisher, not in Beta or regular, also when transferred to an iPad, nothing happens. Please help. It is very frustrating.
  3. In Affinity Designer on iPad, I can't type the '+' or '_' characters using my Bluetooth keyboard. Some notes on this: 1. I *can* type '+' and '_' using an onscreen keyboard 2. I *can* type '-' and '=' using the Bluetooth keyboard, but the corresponded shifted versions don't work. 3. the + and _ characters work everywhere else on my iPad using the Bluetooth keyboard, just not in Affinity Designer. 4. I have the same problem in Affinity Publisher 5. Sometimes the '_' character makes the text in the text box disappear (or turn white?), which makes me think that '_' is configured to do some other action in Affinity Designer. I can't figure out exactly what it's doing though.

  5. As Alfred states, easy to create presets for A2,A1, A0 paper sizes, to be honest V1 included such presets but to create the missing ones in V2 only takes a few minutes even on the iPad version of Affinity Publisher.
  6. I recently was , from Publisher, to my Brother Laser printer but the results were unacceptable. Color was fine but I was getting streaks in the image. I did not have this issue with Photoshop or PIxelmator. I also had the same issue when printing from another Mac using Affinity Photo. When printing to my HP InkJet printer no issues. The issues seem to be released solely to the Laser. Again, the same image printed fine to the Brother when printing from Photoshop or PIxelmator. Not sure what the issue is and my Laser printer and Affinity is. BTW, I I save the Publisher file and import it into Publisher on my iPad, I get the same results so it is confined somehow to Affinity products. I have attached a photo. .
  7. Hi, I recently got more and more into the workflow of the Affinity suite and just L*O*V*E it. And I say this as someone who for 20 years worked with Adobe and still also appreciates their stuff. One of Affinity‘s main selling points really is having the same fully fletched Publisher-app available on the iPad pro and therefore being able to work on the most complex projects on the Mac and iPad simlultaneously and I don‘t believe Adobe-users can even imagine what this feels like. So my feature request might already be taken away in this thread‘s subject, but here I‘ll write it in longform: More than once I‘ve started a project on the Mac, later opened it on the iPad and you know with a zillion things and projects going on and Affinity‘s way how to handle open documents (when you hit the back button on the iPad, the project still remains open) it at least for me easily happens that I open the same doc on two devices and later find out I created two differing versions. When this happens, this of course is superbad and the only thing it would need is like a prompt when opening a file that this is already opened elsewhere. I can imagine this ain‘t supereasy to solve, Adobe does it with these .idlk-files which has their own pros and cons, but I can‘t imagine that within the Apple/Mac/iPad workflow at least there might be some good solutions with continuity or iCloud or anything. Would totally appreciate it (or maybe I‘ve overseen something?) and I guess this might have happened to many people making use of the iPad‘s apps at least. Thanks and cheers, Valentin
  8. Stokerg - I have just uploaded, via your Dropbox, the Publisher file. The photo is not a RAW file but a image created in Photoshop (where selections are soooo much easier than Affinity Photo) and exported as a TIFF file. I also saved as a PSD with the same results. The file was color managed. Any thoughts once you receive it. Again, when imported the file into Publisher on my iPad Pro (latest Gen) I did not have the same issue. The doc printed fine. Thanks for any ideas. James K
  9. Hi all, happy new year. I’m literally pulling my hair out over this. I have searched the help section, I’ve searched youtube and asked in various relevant facebook groups and not a single source will give me a straight answer to what I feel should be a really easy question. I would be so grateful if someone could PLEASE give me step by step instructions on how to add page numbers to a multi page Publisher document on the iPad. I’ve been using Designer for years but I’m relatively new to Publisher so I don’t know all the terms and where to find things. Thank you
  10. Hello there! I have created a 150 pages photo book in Publisher 2.3.1 on my iPad Pro (M1, 256 GB (8GB RAM)) and would love to export it to a PDF file so I can share and later print it. However, whenever I try to do that, Publisher gets to about 50 % and then crashes. I tried splitting the file into two 75 pages documents and those can be exported properly, even though this also takes FOREVER. I know it‘s probably just a very very huge project for Publisher – but shouldn‘t it be able to cache the files somewhere on the iPad‘s local storage so even with the limited RAM the iPad should be able to handle this? In general, PDF exporting with a lot of images takes sooo long. It‘d be great if Serif could speed this up. In addition, it would be super great if I wouldn‘t have to create a separate file for this split-export: Why is there no option to select specific pages on the export dialog? Thanks in advance for any feedback!
  11. Create a new document in Publisher 2.3.1 and press Import Styles..., Publisher crashes immediately. Beta 2.4 works, no crash, even with the same document as the one created and crashing in 2.3.1. So likely not high priority, but still. Document example enclosed. The text box is not important, it crashes both before and after saving the document or adding a text box. crashtest.afpub
  12. Thanks for the advice. I’ll try all the advice offered and will let you all know tomorrow. I’ll can upload Pub file for you to check out. I don’t know if I said but the Pub file that doesn’t net work from my Mac’s prints fine from Publisher on my iPad Pro. Jim K
  13. Which PDF to ePUB converter/s would you recommend for PDFs produced by Affinity Publisher 2 software? Ideally for iPAD but can utilize mac catalina or windows 7 as well as alternatives for the conversion.
  14. We are pleased to announce an update for the iPad release of Affinity Publisher 2 for iPad, version 2.3.1 The changes in Affinity Publisher 2 for iPad 2.3.1 (those made since the last release Affinity Publisher 2 for iPad 2.3.0) are listed in this FAQ forum post: To get notified when any new releases are made please follow the latest releases thread by clicking here UPDATING TO THIS VERSION (which is free for all V2 users) The software version can be seen in the bottom left the corner of preferences screen. Your Affinity iPad apps should update automatically next time you run them. However, you do need to be logged in with the same Apple ID you used to buy them. If the automatic update does not happen for you, go to the iPad Store app and go to Updates. Once you’re there, tap near the top of the screen where it states 'Updates' and then hold, pull down and then release. This should manually refresh the updates page. However, don’t panic if the updates are not available for you yet—Apple sometimes phase roll outs around the world and this can take up to 24 hours.
  15. I couldn‘t find what I am looking for via search function. In Publisher for iPad is there a way to collect all used files (linked and embedded) into a new folder? I need to continue working on my publisher file on the desktop version but I have many files that are linked to a Designer file on my iPad. (and no, I don‘t want to mess around with iCloud ;-))

  17. Bonjour / Hello everybody My First Time in this forum! Since I move on Affinity V2, I notice this issue: When I start a New Doc in Mac Desktop then I want to work on it further on my IPAD, the Publisher App crashs! It‘s a pity, because that‘s why I bought the all V2 Thing in Affinity, in Order to have all the flexibilty to work on apple devices when I‘m travelling. Has somebody also this Kind of issue? Thanks in advance for your support Stéphane
  18. Good evening, I have a problem with a file that I was working on for months for my school thesis, I have the delivery in 5 days but since a few hours if I try to open the file that is on ''Doc Live''( and I didn't save in pdf or other formats) crash a the application. I don't know how to fix it and I need to keep working on that file, I have the app up to date and the license in good standing I don't understand, I may have deleted a file from the source and now it can't find it but that doesn't seem like a good reason to keep crashing. I don't know what is the right part in the forum to post this request and I don't even know English well I hope you will understand but it is a critical situation for me. Best regards Matthew🫠 IMG_0457.MOV
  19. No problem at all! Essentially, there are 3 different ways in which the Affinity apps allow for direct 'interworking' between each app. 1. File > Edit In [Photo/Designer/Publisher] ... Within any Affinity desktop app, you will find menu items under the File menu that allows you to 'send' documents between the apps seamlessly. This will take your currently active document and open it within the selected Affinity app, to continue editing the file.* For example; You can open and develop a RAW file within Affinity Photo, then once you've finished developing/editing the image you could use File > Edit In Designer... This would close the edited image from Affinity Photo and open it within Affinity Designer, allowing you to then use the Designer specific tools, such as the Vector Brush Tool on your image. *Note that Edit In requires the same version of the Affinity apps to be installed on the same device to function. For example; If you have Affinity Publisher V1 and Affinity Designer V2 installed on one PC, Edit In will not be selectable in either app - you would need to install multiple V1 or V2 apps for this to function. 2. Interchangeable File Format Each Affinity app saves your document using a specific file format - Affinity Photo uses .afphoto, Affinity Designer uses .afdesign and Affinity Publisher uses .afpub. However, these file formats are only named differently for file identification purposes and are essentially the same format, meaning any Affinity app can open any Affinity file, on any platform that Affinity supports.* For example; You can create a logo in Affinity Designer for Windows and save this as an .afdesign file. You can then send this file to a mac and use File > Open in Affinity Photo on macOS to open this .afdesign and continue editing from where you left off in Designer, but now with the tools found in Affinity Photo. Following this, you can save the document from Affinity Photo on macOS (which will retain the previous .afdesign format) and then send this to your iPad, where the file could be opened within Affinity Publisher for iPad to finish editing. This would carry across all of the edits made in the file from both Designer & Photo, and would then be editable in Publisher, using Publishers specific toolset. The above example is purely hypothetical - as the Affinity document (.afphoto, .afdesign or .afpub) from any app can be opened in any other Affinity app, on any supported platform. *Note that Affinity V1 files can be edited across all Affinity V1 apps, however once saved within Affinity V2 they will only be editable within Affinity V2 and can no longer be reopened within Affinity V1.(ie not 'backwards compatible') 3. StudioLink within Affinity Publisher Affinity Publisher is currently the only Affinity app to support StudioLink. Although Affinity Designer and Photo have their own Personas, you cannot access Affinity Designers tools from within Affinity Photo directly,(ie without leaving Affinity Photo) or vice-versa. Essentially StudioLink allows you to create a document within Publisher, then switch to either the Photo or Designer persona within Publisher*. This provides you with a more refined set of tools from each app (Photo/Designer) respectively, without having to leave the Affinity app you originally created the document in, which the above 2 workflows require. However as StudioLink Personas each have this more refined toolset, certain functions of Designer/Photo can only be found within that app directly - such as Panorama Stitching or Astrophotography Stacking in Affinity Photo, which cannot be found in the Photo Persona within Publisher StudioLink. For example; After creating your Publisher document and using File > Place to introduce an image to your document, you might decide this image requires a few edits to be perfect. You can then switch to the Photo Persona using StudioLink to instantly edit this image in your file, using the tools from Affinity Photo, without having to leave Publisher & saving/closing your file. You may then decide that your document requires a Logo, or perhaps a Warp Group as covered above. Therefore you can switch to the Designer Persona using StudioLink to access these tools, again without having to leave Publisher. Finally, you can return to the Publisher Persona to complete the editing on your file and Export/Print/Save this as required. StudioLink has been previously explained/demonstrated during the AffinityLive event when this feature was first announced by Ash, our MD. You can find this video in the below Spotlight article - https://affinityspotlight.com/article/focus-on-studiolink/ *Note that StudioLink requires the same version of the Affinity apps to be installed on the same device to function. For example; If you have Affinity Photo V1 and Affinity Publisher V2 installed on one PC, StudioLink will not function in Publisher V2 - you would need to install Photo V2 for this to function. Equally, if you have Affinity Designer V2 installed on macOS and Affinity Publisher V2 installed on iPadOS, StudioLink would not function on iPad - you would need to install Designer V2 on iPadOS for this to function. This is why we now sell Affinity as a 'Universal License', providing you with Photo, Designer and Publisher V2 Affinity apps, on all 3 platforms simultaneously - meaning StudioLink can work on any supported device! __________________ I appreciate this may be more information than you require, but I felt it best to be thorough - though there may still be edge cases not covered by the above. Hopefully this helps clear things up for you, but we're certainly glad to hear StudioLink should help with your general workflows in Affinity
  20. Just as a follow up on this, I found that if I opened the .afpub file created on iPad which contained the linked resources on my Mac I would then be prompted to update the location of the resources as they are missing, but this was as expected as the file path of the resources changes in between MacOS and IOS despite it being the same SMB share, for IOS this was /private/var/mobile/library/livefiles etc. and for MacOS it was /Volumes/SMB Share/ etc, this was outside of the app's control. The iPad Files app on the SMB share appears to have issues updating any existing files I've made edits to, even outside of Affinity. For example If I edit a basic .rtf text file on desktop and then save it back to the same location on the SMB share, other MacOS devices connected to that share can almost immediately access the updated version of the document, however the iPad version on Files remains unmodified, and I can only get the .rtf file to update by ejecting and re-connecting the share, this is the same for resources i've edited in the Affinity apps. Doing this ejection and re-connection causes issues for linked resources in Publisher as the re-connected Share then has a different file smbclient path, which then causes the resources to become unlinked. I can see i'm not the only one to run into this limitation: https://talk.macpowerusers.com/t/anyone-know-how-to-force-the-files-app-to-refresh-its-view/21564 In comparison, using a cloud service like OneDrive did not present this problem editing and saving a resource on Mac updated/synced it on iPad in a relatively short duration, and I just had to simply update the resource in Publisher.
  21. This post is designed to be an aid to knowing if you are using the latest version of Affinity Version 2 applications on your platform. The thread is now locked so if you "follow" it you will know then we release a new version on any platform. Version numbers are displayed on the About dialog (or preferences in iPad builds) NOTE: I will update/edit this first post as new releases are added.

For the macOS release, in the application main menu there is an option "Check for Updates". Alternatively, you can download the latest installer by logging into the affinity store here and find the order in your account and use the "download" button in there. Updates are installed automatically (or manually by installing the new version over the old) Previous builds do not need uninstalling first. New installations of paid software downloaded from the Affinity Store requires LICENSE ACTIVATION to use. Software downloaded from the Mac App Store, Microsoft Store and iPad store do not require a license activation and are updated through the relevant store: If you’ve purchased from the Mac App Store— updates are done automatically next time you run your software after it is available in the Mac App Store. However, you do need to be logged in with the same Apple ID you used to buy them. If this does not happen for you, open the Mac App Store app and go to the Updates page and then Store > Reload page or press CMD+R. This should hopefully force the update to show. Apple sometimes phase roll outs around the world which can mean it may take up to 72 hours for your update to be available. If you’ve purchased from the Microsoft Store— Microsoft Store updates are done automatically by the operating system (each time you start the application). If this does not happen for you, open the Windows Store app and click the three dots in the top right corner of the app and then go to Downloads and Updates. Click Get Updates. This should hopefully force the update to show. If you’ve purchased from the Pad Store— Your Affinity iPad apps should update automatically next time you run them. However, you do need to be logged in with the same Apple ID you used to buy them. If the automatic update does not happen for you, go to the iPad Store app and go to Updates. Once you’re there, tap near the top of the screen where it states 'Updates' and then hold, pull down and then release. This should manually refresh the updates page. However, don’t contact us if the updates are not available for you yet—Apple sometimes phase roll outs around the world and this can take up to 24 hours. ---------- This thread is locked and will only be posted to by Serif Staff as the released versions change.

  22. That is quite a bold statement. To state that "some people may find..." would be fairly representative. I switched to Designer around 2015 and used only that application for work for about five years until I added Photo. Designer remains my primary work tool; the change of photo editor was driven as much by a hobby as by work. Publisher is irrelevant to me and will remain so; every such purchase must be justifiable and pay for itself when running a small business alone. The universal licence is good value, but only if there is a need for all three applications on at least one desktop OS: £160 versus £204 before discount offers. This is, of course, just one permutation as an example – the value proposition can change if, for instance, iPad versions are wanted. So if I had purchased since the universal licence was introduced, my decision would have been exactly the same. Just in case my usage makes it look like I may have been a customer for a single Swiss Army knife application, let me be clear that if Serif had chosen to commit to going down that road, I would very probably not have become a Serif user. The cost would almost certainly have been too high because – let's be realistic – it would cost far more than the one application which was my entry point. I would have needed to consider performance, too.
  23. I appreciate the further testing you've conducted - as it appears you have determined the cause of this error, and I can verify it's a bug. I can confirm that you should be able to drag and drop a layer into a Picture Frame, for the layer to become the frame contents - rather than simply a nested child layer like other objects in Affinity. In Publisher on Desktop, you can drag and drop an image into a frame using the Layers Studio, regardless of the current layer selection: 2024-02-08 16-47-30.mp4 However in Publisher on iPad, it appears as though you need the Picture Frame Layer selected, in order for the object to correctly be adopted as the frames contents. If you have the image layer selected, or a different layer when drag-dropping the image, it may result in the object being added as a regular Child layer to the frame, causing the behaviour you're seeing: RPReplay_Final1707412031.MP4 I don't believe this difference is expected behaviour and therefore I'm logging this with our developers now. In the meantime please ensure you see the 'Picture Frame' icon in the thumbnail for the Image layer within the Picture Frame, to confirm that it has correctly been added as the Frame contents layer. I hope this helps
  24. When I open an existing document of Publisher in Designer, and a particular font is missing, I get a small message in the left top border. In Publisher I can use Preflight, in Designer? The attention message fades away before I can see what the message of the missing font was. Can this be changed to a clickable message. It stays in Designer on screen until I click it away. It was not possible for me to make a screenprint, the message is too short visible.
  25. We are pleased to announce an update for the iPad release of Affinity Publisher 2 for iPad, version 2.3.0 The changes in Affinity Publisher 2 for iPad 2.3.0 (those made since the last release Affinity Publisher 2 for iPad 2.2.1 ) are listed in this FAQ forum post: To get notified when any new releases are made please follow the latest releases thread by clicking here UPDATING TO THIS VERSION (which is free for all V2 users) The software version can be seen in the bottom left the corner of preferences screen. Your Affinity iPad apps should update automatically next time you run them. However, you do need to be logged in with the same Apple ID you used to buy them. If the automatic update does not happen for you, go to the iPad Store app and go to Updates. Once you’re there, tap near the top of the screen where it states 'Updates' and then hold, pull down and then release. This should manually refresh the updates page. However, don’t panic if the updates are not available for you yet—Apple sometimes phase roll outs around the world and this can take up to 24 hours.
