  1. some time ago I saved a paragraph format , justification, text font and size etc. I remember there was a key board short cut option and I chose 'control 1' for one style and 'control 2' for another. Since then something strange has happened when I key in 1 or 2 without pressing control key the open text box is reformated instead of typing 1 or 2. So basically, now I can't type 1 or 2 . I only created this short cut once, a while back and I cant remember how I did it. Obviously this is a big problem, any help would be greatly appreciated.
  2. There's been a few threads on these forums about JXL but no real feedback from Serif on their plans other than an answer that it might happen some day. I really do think Serif should consider JXL seriously and be a first mover in regards to this format. The reasons for supporting JPEG XL is many, a new actually great format for >8bit final export, possibility of lossless quality, transparent conversion to JPEG for compatibility, better compression and more. Some sources: source 1, source 2. The reason I think Serif should be a first mover in regards to this format is that no new format will ever get the chance at dethroning JPEG from it's role if nobody ever implements it in their software. Browsers do support JPEG XL (JXL) but the enablement is hidden behind browser flags currently, partly because nothing else supports JPEG XL at this time.
  3. I'm trying to adjust the spacing between Text and Underline in Affinity Publisher. Preferred in/via the "Styles menue" Is there something like the "Underline Options" in ID? And could this eventually be a added in a future release?

  5. After working on my photos I save them (of course), but Affinity doen't show any choice but saving in .afphoto. Unfortunately I cannot read this format with my Mac sw neither with Preview nor with Photos. If I read the photos using Graphic Converter I get a terrible and blurred version of my photos. Isn't possible to save in a different format? otherwise what can I do? TIA
  6. Hi, I have a problem with the date format. If I insert a date via Text > Insert > Field > and then any option and do a right click and then click "Edit Field" a window opens in which I can define how (in which format) the date (and also the time) is displayed. But if I change the format nothing happens. If I then close the window and right click again my changes aren't saved. Also if I click in the menu Text > Insert > Field > Date and Time only the date in the current format is inserted and the time is missing. But if I open the Fields studio instead and adjust the format via the three dots at the end of the line and then double click to insert, the format is correct. My current version is Affinity Publisher 1.10.5.1342 for Windows Would be great if this problem gets solved because how it currently works is very frustrating.
  7. There is one thing that makes me almost "crazy" - maybe you know a remedy... I have a document with a defined textframe field into which I want to insert names from an Excel spreadsheet - this works fine, but with very long names like "Maximilian Mustermann" there is not enough space. Do you know if Affinity offers a possibility to dynamically adjust the font size to the text frame size? Or to define it: Normal names with 30 pt, as soon as the name exceeds the textframe 2 lines and if it is still too long, adjust the font size until it fits into the frame.
  8. This is not request for Affinity Suite itself but compatibility with 3rd party software. XnView is one of most popular image browser and it's free. It's faster than Adobe Bridge and has more features. So I would like you to communicate with them and help them to add Affinity file format support to XnView MP.
  9. Hello, I will be formatting an anthology (novel) using stories given to me by 5 authors in Word. Suggestions how to import them all into the same document would be great.

  11. Hi, how can I copy and paste text format in Affinity Designer? Like color of text, font size, etc. Many thanks in advance to all for help. Theo
  12. https://jpeg.org/ Maybe it looks like a trifle, but if you want to find out if the application can work with JPEG images, then it will not find anything 😞
  13. Hello Team, I created a 8.25"x10.75" size 30 page magazine with Affinity Publisher. I created this for Magclouds as a print on demand magazine. During the page setting I complied with Indesign instructions as provided by the Magclouds. Magclouds did not have Affinity Publisher specific instructions. However, I had an error message saying my magazine outside the bleed size and finally it became a landscape print instead portrait. Could someone help me with this issue. Anyone upload to Magclouds from Affinity Publisher (as a pdf) Much appreciate all your support. Thank you
  14. I'm trying to set up a template with a copyright "stamp" that should look like "©<year> <author>" where the <year> field should be updated to the saving date but show the year only. Trying to have tight text field does not help, the full field content is visible even beyond the field boundary (should be fixed?) overlaying the unwanted part with a filled rectangle of the background's color is a workaround but has drawbacks when changing to a font of different width the background color I think it would be desirable to have more flexibility in defining the format of a (date) field beyond the few choices available through the drop-down menu.
  15. Greetings, I'm a user of the whole affinity suite and I haven't come across any bug until now. I'm trying to open a TGA file that has a resolution of 9600 x 11035 px (72 DPI, 11 MB), but no matter which method I use to open it, A. Photo closes immediately. It seems to be related to the format, as in PNG it opens fine without any issues. But I really need to have them in TGA as that is the format I use to save my renders from Blender, to avoid gradient banding issues. Any assistance would be really appreciated. Thank you
  16. Hello, I have a drawing that has all vectors. There are no raster/pixel elements whatsoever, and every assistive shape that Designer has to offer has been converted to curves. Literally everything is curves and I still can't export to a PDF without it rasterizing. According to a graphics designer whose been working with this stuff for 20 years knows that PDFs can preserve vector elements, so he needed my graphics for laser-engraving a piece of wood, and he uses Adobe Illustrator. We tried .eps, .psd, .pdf, and .svg, and all were rasterized on export. From what I've read, Affinity Designer's export module just doesn't seem to cut it in the production world and is half-baked compared to Adobe's. It appears buggy and cannot consistently output vectors, if you can even achieve that at all. Why is this? Every time we opened the file on his program, certain parts of my document were rasterized for no reason. To solve this, he had to use the "image trace" feature to vectorize my raster export that should have been infinitely precise curves on export to begin with. Why does a vector application not export vectors without rasterizing them? That's like Logic Pro X not being able to export to a .wav file! Any help is appreciated.
  17. Hi everyone, new user of affinity publisher design and I absolutely love it. haven't used software like this since ms publisher 2007. I designed this little 16 page zine and it was super fun, however I wanna save master copies for different versions (print and digital). Right now I have the pages set up in spreads where they face each other. all of the spreads feature a pair of pages except for the first and last page, which are each on their own spread. however, when I export it as a pdf for digital view I think I would look better if I could have the first page and the last page on a single spread. Can someone please let me know how to do that if possible? Thanks!
  18. Hi, Affinity Photo reads the message "the file type is not supported". System Windows 10 Affinity photo : 1.8.3.641 File : see attached file In the folder only few files are unreadeabled. All the file are read without problem with ViewNX. Best Regards. Yves POUJOL. DSC_4762.NEF
  19. Hello, I created a background with a gradient in Affinity Photo. In the doc and when exported, I and someone on a separate computer I shared the image to can also see the banding on the image. I tried: exporting as a JPEG, PNG, PNG-8, and converting the file format to RGB/16 and RGB/32 (HDR). RGB/16 seemed to smooth the image more but there were still bands in the image. I also tried remaking the background in RGB/32 but the background did not turn out. The image is 1920 x 1080 300 DPI How can I remove the bands or export the image without the bands?
  20. Hi, I'm very much a beginner with Affinity Photo after years of only editing my photos in RAW form in apps like Lightroom and Capture One. What I've always understood is that a JPEG file is the final form, with edits 'baked in'. The idea of adding an HSL or brightness and contrast layer to a JPEG file seems very strange - surely this will push a compressed image too far? I understand adding pixel layers with creative effects or combining images, but what is the expert opinion on adjustments? My expected workflow will still be doing essential edits in a RAW editor, but should I export the end result as a TIFF file, for example, for more creative work in Affinity Photo in order to preserve quality and avoid artefacts?
  21. Can people make and use big formats like A1 and bigger in publisher?
  22. If you apply to an object a gradient and then add a modification using the transparent tool the result will be one gradient predominating the other after exporting using SVG format Only works if there is neither a gradient or a transparency applied, not both together sample 1.afdesign
  23. Wouldn't it be a great feature to support Microsoft xaml-files for drawingbrushes? There are some svgtoxaml converters out there, but it would be a much better workflow to export the xaml-files direct from Affinity-Designer. So I can use my favourite tool to design my drawingbrushes in my wpf-applications.
  24. Would be nice if you could add additional cropmark format.(Japan/China format) This has bleed guides that regular cropmark doesn't. https://www.mojoprint.jp/tutorials/2007/07/10/understanding-the-guides-and-marks-used-in-the-templates/ https://indesignsecrets.com/japanese-and-chinese-crop-marks-for-indesign.php https://www.printarabia.ae/help/creating-data/what-are-trim-marks
  25. Comic book tools could feel right at home in Publisher with its Designer and Photo integration. Speech bubble tools with linking could be useful. The panel creation tools in Clip Studio could be instructive.
