  1. I'm trying to figure out the best way to make letter-size half-fold stand up cards in Publisher. By this I mean the common situation where you take a letter size sheet or similar and fold it in half so it's shaped like a little tent, then stand it up on a table to use as a seating label or, in my case, as a reminder of task/agenda type bullet points or game/exercise rules, etc. The problem is that I can't seem to find a way with Publisher to make this work very nicely. Currently I have a master spread that looks like this: But I can only get this by creating a master spread with "facing pages" and rotating the text frame in the top page upside down. Then i can't view the pages as individual pages and even if I did then half of them would be upside-down. What I would like to be able to do is: 1) Have a master portrait spread, say 8.5x11", where I can rotate entire landscape 8.5x5.5" pages whichever way is needed. 2) View individual landscape 8.5x5.5" pages in their correct right-side-up orientation. 3) Have those pages properly mapped to the spread and printed at the correct orientation for the fold(s). Let me know if I'm missing anything but right now I can seem to find any way to get arbitrary orientations on "facing" pages for arbitrary folding schemes without having to type upside down or rotate my view all the time.
  2. I can no longer see the page layout, master pages etc in the left column. How do I fix that?
  3. Hi, I want to discuss a topic that might be helpful for several parties but correlates with the implementation of advanced spread or folding handling. This topic should be an overview and poll how useful or dull this idea is. InDesign has the opportunity to define spreads with several folds. Affinity Publisher should get this feature at some point. It is the very basic feature that is a standard in print design. I think Serif wants to gather business-to-business (b2b) clients, not only SMEs, non-profits and individuals. But that is not what they communicate if they resist to implement this feature. We are thankful for data merge but it was only one step. I know that the Affinity team is a small one and has limited capacity. But that are crucial features that decide what software people use: Affinity, open-source or Adobe CC (or CS if they have it still running). Years ago I stumbled over a dtp solution called Laidout (www.laidout.org), for Linux only. It is a desktop publishing tool for impositioning folded spreads. With this addition you could fold advanced documents with the following fold types: gatefold (tabernacle fold) right-angle fold parallel fold letterfold (infinite) accordion fold, concertina fold, fan fold Even in a two-page type document like a catalogue/brochure: e.g. a hinged inner page But it could going far beyond that. You could separate or join pages. E.g. you had imported PDF files with facing pages as single page and have to divide them into facing pages again. That is a lot of work if you have dozens or hundreds of pages to change. With this editor you could define a break point to break them apart. Or the same vice versa if you want to join multiple pages into one single page. Deleting the break point joins them fast and easy. On the other hand you can design and impose documents like folded maps, instruction leaflets and manuals. Import existing Affinity documents and rearrange them into new formats. Content will be flipped and/or rotated according to the fold At some point it would be nice to create packaging like boxes, cylinders, cones and oder 3 dimensional objects from paper but that would be more-or-less usable to the majority. Extruded marks for cutting and adhesive points. I want to know what you think about it. Is this a good idea or just a waste of code nobody would ever use?
  4. is it possible to fold / unfold all sublayers of a layer? It often happens to me that I get the wrong path/curve. Is it possible to grab only sublayers of the current layer? Sorry for my bad english and thank you in advance. Greetings
