  1. Hello, I just switched from the Adobe CC to Affinity and i run into a problem withing Affinity Publisher. In InDesign I'm used to making a mockup of my document using wireframes, and then filling it with text and picures. When i wanted to do the same thing within Publisher, I can't type in a picture frame. I seem to have to make a seperate textframe for typing. Can an empty pictureframe be used as a placeholder before filling the document with text and pictures? Or is it just an empty placeholder for pictures?
  2. Hello everyone, This is driving me nuts and I'm sure that there is a simple answer... but I can't seem to find it. I have imported a 32-pages .idml document into Affinity Publisher and the text boxes appear with 4 x's at the 4 corners of the frame... and this is making it impossible for me to select with the Type Tool, Move Tool or Selection Tool. I have included a small video showing the problem. Hope that you can help me -))) Screen_Recording_2021-03-28_at_5_16.17_PM.mov
  3. Hey there, I am currently having an issue importing IDML files into Affinity Publisher that is bugging me a lot. I have been working on a document for quite some time now in InDesign and want to continue work in Publisher. So, I exported the file as IDML and imported it into the Affinity software. My problem is that all font sizes are wrong now. E.g. a text with 11 pt font size which fitted perfectly into its frame in Design will now not fit into the frame at all since the font size is way too big. Am I overseeing a conversion step or something? I would be thankful if you guys could help
  4. A few days ago I posted my initial query and did it wrong and the title came out as "PLP" so I haven't had any responses. I have used an old version of InDesign for 12 years or more from CS3, and I am retired and do a monthly publication for an HOA. I never thought to look at the size of the pdf before submitting to the publisher. In January I started using Affinity. Before Covid I was doing 16 pages with 20 or more color photos. Now I'm doing 8-12. Had a problem with the 2nd issue going over 20 MBs! Would barely go out on email to be proofed and published wouldn't accept it. I ha
  5. I am a publisher and editorial designer. I've been working with In Design (before Quark X Press) for more than 20 years. Lately tried Affinity and bought the whole package, in order to replace adobe. Must say that every day gets better but I lack the possibility of creating books, in other words compilations of the single documents created separated in one only document, what in In Design is called indb formats (books). When designing magazines, normally we design each feature, reportage or editorial separately, but at the end is very helpful to create one single document,
  6. I have no idea why this problem occurs but when I export a file (tested with jpg, pdf and png) in Affinity Designer on my macbook pro (High Sierra) and send it to my coworker who works with InDesign CS5 (Windows 7) she can't place my files. When she tries to place a document it says "The file does not exist or is being used by a different program, or you don't have the proper access rights." It never happens with other files. Only with the ones I exported with Affinity. The craziest thing is it even happens when she makes a desktop screenshot! But only if my file is seen. It doesn't
  7. Hey guys. Is there a screen mode like in InDesign? Can't seem to find something similar in the Affinity Publisher Beta. Thanks!
  8. Hi, I´m absolutely surprised of this software. So quick, smooth and powerfull. There is only one reason why I can not change Indesign for Publisher :( It´s database publishing. I use "easycatalog" plug-in from 65bit for catalogue production. Implement database publishing like this plug-in and I will immediately change bugy, slow and extremely expansive InDesign change for Publisher :-)
  9. Hey guys, I can't seem to find a way to convert process colours to spot in Affinity Publisher Beta. Not quite sure if there is a way yet. When I'm doing a print job that has a die-line, perf, fold line, etc, I usually set them up as a spot colour. In InDesign I usually convert one of the colours (either cyan, magenta, yellow, black, or whatever) from Color Type: Process to Color Type: Spot and then assign a name to each (like die-line). Is there a way to do something like that in Affinity Publisher at the moment? Thanks!
  10. Hello, I have to purchase a book layout template from a third part made in InDesign format. The idea is to import it in AP, make my amendments (add the text) and print the book but before purchasing AP (or install the trial) I would like to have an idea of how accurate the import in AP will be compared to the original in InDesign format. Based on your experience, how accurate and close to the original the AP import from InDesign is? Besides making sure the InDesgn file I receive is in IDML format, Is there anything I have to consider ? Any pitfalls ? Please don't take anything f
  11. Over the last couple of days I have been trying out the latest version of Quark that I have been really enjoying using (2017 is the only version I have used.) To me it seems like this is going to be a very hard area for Serif to compete in given that there are two products that many are happy with that have been advancing since the 1980s (or at least there are people that are happy with one of those two options.) Even if Publisher was out today it would still have a massive challenge in competing with these two options especially at Quark's new low $400 entry price (and yes that is low for a p
  12. Hello, is it possible to edit an Affinity Publisher file in InDesign? Can I export the Publisher file into InDesign - and then edit that file in InDesign - using the export menu or do I have to use a third-party application? Thank you
  13. I have just watched Moving from InDesign to Affinity Publisher with Mike Barton and I was very impressed. What I would very much like to see is a companion video showing "Moving design from PagePlusX9 to Affinity Publisher". I am getting the same problems with importing PDFs as he so graphically describes. Unfortunately Markzware does not provide a companion piece of software to make the journey smoother. However a video guide to providing a Master Page and Text styles for this process would be a great help to the rather aduous process of conversion. What about it Affinity, it would make us Pa
  14. In these unique times, we want to help users transitioning to and from other DTP applications. We know that many designers are having to make budget cuts, and many are moving from Adobe to Affinity. We want to help you guys move your existing work to Publisher. So, we are giving away the full version of IDMarkz for usage through the end of May 2020. This is not the freebie version that locks out the IDML export; it's the full version with all features enabled. There are no charges or signups required to take advantage of this; it's how we feel we can help during these unprecedented times.
  15. I have a lot of adobe work that i need to open with these applications. CS-1 photoshop files CS-1 Illustrator files CS-3 Indesign files Can somebody please let me know if it possible at all? I have a new computer mac mini and none of my older software can run on it. Affinity software can as the store shows its compatible with my mac mini. thanks I know its a long shot but I just have to ask. thanks everyone for the input. I want to buy all three affinity apps soon they just look intuitive and pretty incredible. I need to make pdf's from affinity p
  16. In the FB discussion forum, I tried to help with question "how to transfer vector data from ADesigner to InDesign via Clipboard". Unfortunately, even after turning "Copy items as SVG" on, InDesign still takes rasterized data (bitmaps). Does anyone have any experience or advice? Transferring vector data using Export and Import also does not work, because the data transferred in this way is attached as a linked document and cannot be edited directly in InDesign, which is necessary. It is said that it works without problems when transferring data via Clipboard from Illustrator.
  17. Hi, pending the arrival of affinity publisher, does anyone have any ideas on how to copy/paste (or otherwise import) vectors from affinity designer into indesign? - i.e. so paths arrive as editable vectors in indesign, not just placed separate files. I've ditched illustrator from which I used to be able to copy/paste vectors into indesign, but I've yet to find a way to achieve the same result using affinity designer...
  18. Hello and thank you for your effort to give us publisher! I happen from time to time to print carbonless paper to make invoice books or numbered coupons, while a simple automatic page numbering is enough for having numbering in paper sizes from A5 and above, there are times that I have to fit multiple smaller sized pages in one big page and need each to start and stop at different numbers. After a long time and thanks to the help of many people I managed to do this with indesign and I wonder if it is possible to be done with publisher too. I will describe how I did this with ind
  19. A user on Twitter reporting Importing of InDesign files in Beta working well and achieved by simply selecting Open and then selecting an .indd file. I am unable to import as all .indd files are greyed out in the Open finder on Mac. I am using latest version of Beta. Has anyone else had this issue and, more importantly, how was it resolved!?
  20. Hello, I'm wondering of Affinity Publisher can load and use Blrub's In Design plugin/templates? I saw this as a feature request over a year ago and wonder if this has been adopted yet? I wanted to take advantage of the 30% off sale but this is the primary reason I'd be purchasing the software. Please advise. https://www.blurb.ca/indesign-plugin Regards, Rico
  21. Do Affinity Photo offer the same option as Adobe Photoshop to store composite Alpha channels that QuarkXPress can read. I use frequently the lasso tool to create alpha channels to isolate parts of an image (to isolate the background from an object). In Photoshop this is done under the Select menu. The mask is stored as a channel that you activate in QuarkXPress. I don't get it work in Affinity Photo.
  22. Hey guys, I designed my pages in AD for my book, now I want to make the final paperback and fixed layout ePub in InDesign, why format should I export each page as to InDesign without loss much quality? the page content images and vectors, I decide to add text in InDesign so I can embed the font for the final export files(print ready pdf and ePub to be publish) and adjust everything nicely in InDesign.
  23. Hey guys, I wanted to make a fixed layout ePub3 ebook and a 8 X 10 inches paperback to publish to kdp, iBook and plsybookstore. The book is full of photos and vector lines and also texts on each page. I have been using Pixelmator to edit my photos(jpgs), I made a Pixelmator document with same dimension as the photos and C&P all of them inside and remove the background and color edit the subject. Then I make documents in Affinity Designer(one for ebook and one for paperback, 1875 X 2500 pixels, 8 x 10 inches respectively). I C&P(so no lose in quality from the con
  24. This AppleInsider article was very positive in its comparison of Publisher with other established publishing tools. In particular, the star of the article is Publisher's StudioLink feature.
