  1. The external Batch Place function described from 2:15–2:45 in the official tutorial video does not work for me. (See here: https://youtu.be/kTAwaA4zvHU?t=135) When I try this, my images open individually as new tabbed projects. (See screenshot.) Which gets pretty fun when there are 50 images. I have tried restarting my app and laptop, using existing (v1 originated) files and new (v2 originated) files. The Place Images panel refuses to populate with this method.
  2. I have two artboards (one is a front cover and one a back cover) in an Affinity Designer file. I'm trying to place both of them separately in Affinity Publisher. Can this be done or do they need to be two separate AD files? Thanks
  3. When I try to place a .jpg image on my current image, all of the images I'm trying to select from are greyed out and I'm not able to select any of them. Most of the images are .jpg and .png. I would appreciate some assistance as I'm a graphic designer and I have a poster to make and have a deadline to meet. Thanks for your assistance.
  4. I’m fairly new to Affinity Photo, still trying to figure out some of the basics. I’ve come across an issue I haven’t been able to figure out. When I want to place a photo on a project I’m working on, sometimes I am given a choice to choose from a small number that appears to be somehow connected to the app. I’ve included a screen shot below. Or, choose from all the photos on my IPad. The shot below does not include an option that allows me to choose from my entire library of photos on my iPad. Sometimes the option shows up and other times it doesn’t. I would like to know why that option doesn’t come up every time. It’s very frustrating when I can’t get to my photo library to choose the photo I want. I am sure I’m doing the same thing every time, but too often, it just shows a handful of photos to choose from and not my complete library...with no option to go to the library. Any insights would be much appreciated. Thanks, Rob
  5. Steps to reproduce: Create a document with a master page. On the master page, create two picture frames at the same coordinates. Using the Layers panel, drag one picture frame into the other so that it becomes the other frame’s content. If you are using the attached file, start here. On a regular document page, select the inner picture frame using the Layers panel. Place an image into the inner picture frame. Expected: the image would be placed. Actual result: the inner picture frame disappears from the Layers panel as if it was deleted. Only the outer picture frame remains. The image is not placed on the page. The image is not found in the Resource Manager. This is Publisher 1.8.5.703 on Windows 10. I have a use case for using nested picture frames in a publication, so this is not just a weird corner case. I would like to use the inner picture frame to manually crop and rotate an original image and the outer frame to automatically fine-tune its dimensions to my grid as I’m experimenting with different grids and layouts. In that scenario, the inner frames would have scaling turned off and the outer frames would be set to Scale to Maximum Fit. Nested picture frames on master page.afpub
  6. The problem I face was that I couldn't place chosen pictures in placeholders on a spread: I applied Master B to page 2 and Master C on page 3. Then I chose 7 pictures, all TIF in this case, to be placed to each of the placeholder in the spread. The result is that I can’t place the pictures in either of the placeholders on page 2, but on page 3 I can. I repeated the same thing, but with smaller jpg pictures. The result was the same. Now, if I apply Master B or Master C to an entire spread, all pictures are placeable. It seems though that a combination of 2 master pages on the same spread causes the issue.

  7. Hello I am writing documents with text and graphics. My graphics are linked in ressource and are floating with text reference. All is running well until the text is at the end of the page. I am trying to explain what's going wrong. When I import the picture as you can see here my picture is outside the bounds (of course option isn't checked !). But when I activate the option here the result I get. As you can see I do not want the picture here Is there anything I am doing wrong ? Regards
  8. Greetings to all, I've been using Affinity for two years, and something strange has happened to me today, I'm not sure if it's a mistake. When you drag an image to the affinity canvas the images are placed in gray scales, but the original image is in color! If I place the image from the panel, the same thing happens! either a png or jpge image is placed in gray scales, when the originals are in color, and I find no reason for it! I would appreciate any comments!!
  9. I know I shouldn't really do this, but after experimenting with the pub18-502 beta and its amazing idml import, I decided to jump into the cold water and use the beta for a small but urgent project (today) in real-life. This way you actually see all shortcomings because you highly depend on it to function correctly. So my Problem is with placed .afdesign files. I have 8 afdesign-Icons linked in my one-page document. Also, there are some text-styles imported via idml which also have weird anomalies*. At some point I opened the triangle in the layers panel and it immediately showed the beach ball followed by the crash report. Then, after recovery and redoing the lost part of the work, I imported another, highly complex .afdesign file into publisher and after maybe ten clicks same crash again. So I want to report this here and in the meantime I will refrain from importing this AFDesign file again and instead convert it to pdf or so... *text style anomalies: when changing one of two hierarchical textstyles, the other one changes the font-weight. The problem is a combination of the font Helvetica Neue LT which has many font weights combined with publishers style preferences, which differentiate between FONT WEIGHT and FONT TRAITS. My Helveticas weights are listed as Traits. And secondly, the default style is not Roman or Book but "Condensed Light"... which is also bad...
  10. I have an automatic process where I pass a parameter into crystal reports, it will create a chart and print a pdf file. I do this every month for maybe a hundred different parameters. For a landscape piece of paper, the chart that is created takes up the top left quadrant and everything else is whitespace. I need to import just the image -- eliminating the white space. Indesign had a feature called "crop to bounding box". You got there by selecting the import options checkbox when placing the pdf file. This would do what I needed -- cropped the document to just the image and place it within the picture frame. I'm trying to see if publisher can do the same thing. When I place the image and double click on it, I get the page box in the context toolbar that has several choices -- one of which is trimbox another is cropbox. If I then go to edit document, I see the image with blue lines around it -- giving the impression the image would be cropped. But I have not been able to figure out how to actually crop it and then transfer the image into the picture frame. The approach I'm using seems like the "right" approach but I'm missing some details. Perhaps there is alternative way to do this within the file/place process -- similar to the crop to the bounding box approach. Thanks for any inut. Greg
  11. So I'm creating an RSVP card that has a bleed, and eventually will be printed 3-up on 8.5x11" paper. In the past, with the software I'm used to, I create a master document of the RSVP card, with the bleed margins set. I then create a separate document for the 3-up, and place the master into this document 3 times. In this way, if changes are made to the master, the 3-up reflects those changes. When placing the master into the 3-up, the software gave me import options when placing the master, one of them being that I could crop to the bleed bounding box. After placing the master, I would create crop marks on the 3-up (which the software had scripts for doing). So I could use some advice as to how to replicate this workflow in Publisher, at least to some degree. In order to get crop marks in Publisher, it appears I have to export the master as a PDF. Which I've done. But when I import the PDF into my 3-up, it doesn't include the crop marks for some reason, even though I can see the crop marks when I open the PDF in Preview. I'm starting to think that I will have to forgo the ability to link to the master, and simply copy and paste the master into the 3-up. Not ideal, but that is the only way I seem to be able to include the bleed. And then I will need to build the drop marks by hand on the 3-up.
  12. Hi ! Is there a way to display automatic guiding lines when moving a text/image/object to align it with other blocks ? Thanks
  13. When I'm Placing an image, AP is saying 'Image Policy - Your document contains a large amount of embedded image date. Would you like to link your images to reduce the document size?' While this is very kind, I'd rather say no in the instance where I'm working. But then it keeps asking me this question every time. Can I turn it off? It would be helpful also if AP offered a checkbox that says 'Use the same answer next time'. Thanks!
  14. Today I placed multiple photos in picture frames. The photos came directly out of the camera (Nikon D50), all taken in portrait format. When looked at in any photo viewer, the orientation was correct; when I placed them (linked) in Publisher, they all came out in landscape format and I had to rotate them by 90 degrees. Could this be fixed? I guess Publisher somehow ignored the camera information about the orientation. Thanks for the effort! I appreciate it very much! Greetings Jan
  15. In many programs, there is a link panel that lets you see what files are linked. Even more, there is a button to let you updated your linked files. I cannot find either of these in Designer. Am I missing them or is this a missing feature?
  16. Something that's been bugging me for a while now. I have no control how a file is placed into a document on either of the apps. The imported file just sticks to the mouse pointer and I have to manually place it. That just steals time away from work as it piles up. I'd rather have a way to just import a bunch of images in one go (without using stacks, that just adds a different workaround). Especially now that we have 32-Bit EXR and AP can now be used as a stills compositing tool as well to combine multiple render passes. It'd also be good to set an option where to place the imported image. For photo bashing / matte painting for example it's helpful to import a bunch of images and have them show up on the canvas without overlap, like a gallery, so work can being right away with less moving things around. For standard compositing tasks a top left pin… and so on. For showcases it's often useful to just place things side by side. So a way to just say, n on x-axis with distance (xx cm) would save a ton of repetitive tasks. In terms of UI this could be solved with a few standard options to click on and an advanced option that have saveable presets. But most important to me is the automated import of many images to x=0, y=0.
  17. Hello--apologies for this simple question. Newbie here. I have scanned from a simple sketch on paper and placed it in AD. My issue is that the 'white' background paper (and its ever greyer paper edges) shows and I don't know how to eliminate it simply. Is there a simple button fix? Do I have to mask? Erase? I was hoping for an easy solution since I will be scanning dozens like this. All help appreciated. I attached the document. Cheers, Connie
