  1. I am a relative beginner in that I have learned Publisher from scratch and never used DTP apps before. Fingers crossed I am doing fine. I have been building a project for about a year now and am delighted with results. I think this is an amazing app. But obviously I do misunderstand new stuff sometimes so I am guessing that I am missing something I need to be doing here. I am having problems with the Index panel. I have just started adding an index to the end of a large document. I have set some index markers in the text and created a page with a text frame for the index. The Index p
  2. I've scrolled for some time looking for a thread in which my problem might be addressed, but no luck. Im using a mid-2009 MacBook Pro (Yosemite 10.10.5) 8GB RAM (1067 MHz DDR3) 2.66 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo - Affinity Publisher 1.8.3 Overall, I'm very satisfied with the user interface, features, speed and reliability of Publisher with two small exceptions. I'm working on a book (377 pages) with a substantial index (8 pages worth). Inserting an index is no problem, it goes very smoothly. However, the 'update index' icon in the Index Panel (lit and 'pressable') does not actuall
  3. Are there any plans to create an auto-index feature? I swear ID can do this - but all I see in the Publisher Beta is the tedious 'insert index marker' by hand, page by page, for each and every topic you want to index. Surely when you're laying out a reference book or other large publication, there's a more automated way to do this then searching for each instance of a word and then inserting a marker? Or, like Table of Contents, could there be a way to have words with special formatting automatically flagged to be included in the index? As it is, indexing currently feels incredibly c
  4. Either I've found some weird bug, or I'm doing something wrong. My Preflight says that "The document index needs updating." and provides a "Fix" button. However, every time I mash the button, nothing happens other than additional entries showing up in the Index Panel (but not on the page). The error remains, and the Index Panel resets itself back to one entry per after a few moments. (see screenshots attached) If I delete the frame with the entry, the error still remains. I have only 1 index and 1 table of contents inserted in the entire document. Am I missing something her
  5. I am trying to insert an index into an Affinity Publisher document, but this error is displayed: "Cannot insert multiple indexes. You cannot insert more than one index in a document." How do I find and delete the index the document apparently has? I do not see it on any page in the document. Earlier I made some test index entries, which I do not now want to use. The index appears to update but is nowhere to be found.
  6. Hi I am used to using PagePlus 9 and use the book feature to stitch together many articles with photos from different authors and sources to make a school publication which is photo rich and can run to 90 pages plus at times. The articles arrive randomly over time and the ability to create chapters and then re-order and re-index is invaluable. Is the chapter feature available on Infinity Publisher?
  7. I've spend the Summer indexing all 550+ YouTube videos on Affinity Photo I've done via my InAffinity channel. This includes web pages (in my ChangingMinds website) for... ...every video, including brief notes and links to categories (effectively 'tags') in which it is included ...each category, with links to every video in that category ...a list of every video, by date of publication The online InAffinity index is here: http://changingminds.org/disciplines/photography/affinity_photo/inaffinity_video_index.htm The video describing the index is here: https://www.
  8. When you export a document to a PDF and then upload it to a printer site, it can be seen that there are "Annotations" in the PDF and some printer sites have to remove those annotations. It only happens in the Table of Contents pages, and the Index pages. It would seem that the annotations might be something that AFPUB needs to know about and use, but I'm not sure if a PDF can benefit from using them. I explored one of the PDFs I generated and Adobe Acrobat did not find any Annotations in the PDF, but a printer site did. If you don't need to generate them into the PDF, it might be a good i
  9. AFPUB 1.8.3, Mac 10.15.3. I have a number of ordinals in my document that are indexed. An example is "18th Birthday", where the "th" is a superscript. In this case, the quoted words are also indexed. I don't know if this is by design, but the index text drops the superscript down to the default baseline (as seen here in this topic). I would have expected the index to respect the superscript and have that properly shown. I'd appreciate some clarification. Thanks.
  10. I'm working on a recipe book and would like to be able to have multiple parent topics for some topics. For example, Paella could be under chicken, prawn, chorizo, saffron, rice etc. Is this possible? Thank you in advance.
  11. In the Index section of Affinity publisher I am trying to add a separator between the index item and the page number. Currently I am unable to add the "Right indent Tab" separator, when I click on it nothing happens. As a side note I am able to add the other separators. Does anyone know if this is a bug or have a suggestion as to how to solve this issue? The only other thing I can think of is to manually add Right Indent tabs to each Index item, but that would take a long time. Thank you Kindly.
  12. Hi, there might be a bug with generating an index and handling with master pages -- Files are attached. On Page 3 is the Index; On Page 4 should be nothing - no Master Page applied; On Page 5 a the Right Master Page with prepared text formats for editors is applied The Master Pages have formated text on both pages -- and the unused Left Master Page shows up in the Index. This might be a problem with the master pages -- the whole content of it shows up in the layers panel. Stay healthy everybody. Publisher Index Bug - Master Titles.afpub
  13. The ability to tag text elements and generate an index (automatically like the Table of Contents) is one thing I would use in larger projects. Likewise, the ability to build cross references that automatically update the page number (to avoid 'see page XX' errors) is something else that I use regularly, but indexing is a higher priority. This looks really good and I'm looking forward to trying it out properly.
  14. I have a potential bug to share. I have been going through the Studio Index panel to check and see if each Topic's words are all check-marked, as needed. In several topics, the panel shows many words that are indexed under the topic. However, if you perform a right-click "Find" on the topic, the list there is empty. Normally, the same words shown under the topic will show up under the "Find" as well. It seems to be more often than not, a two-word indexing situation. Note: in the examples, the two words "cargo plane" are indexed separately from "cargo" and "plane." Attached two screen shots of
  15. Looking at the "default" style/formatting for the index entries (inside a text frame) I would like to see the following: 1. Page numbers always starting on the same line as the indexed item. This has the advantage of saving space (extra lines) in the index. 2. Page numbers that wrap around to the second and subsequent lines, should be indented from the indexed item itself. Also helps the viewer to scan for index items easily. Example (ignore empty lines - they are an artifact of this forum's format): P Parts 11, 12, 16, 21, 22 Photo 10, 11, 12, 13
  16. Thanks for changing the indexing to include topic names that begin with numbers. Numbered items, then, are all under the Index Section Heading: "1". Changing the text style for all of the Index Section Heading items changes them all - except the "1" So all section headings A-Z can be changed to have a different font size. But the "1" (that is also marked as "Index Section Heading") stays the same size. Example: "A-Z" are 5 points, "1" is 12 points. See screenshots.
  17. A little weirdness. I indexed the word "Generator" and then went to the View/Studio/Index Topic item and performed a "Find In Document" - this is what it brought back - another word that is similar to the word "Generator" but NOT the same word at all. It brought back the word "General" and offered to index those entries under the topic "Generator" As Data said once about how to pronounce his name - "one is my name, the other is not"
  18. I've noted that it is possible to mark the same exact word (in a single text frame) multiple times (purposely or accidentally). The page number and nearby text becomes listed "X" times in the View/Studio/Index Topic list and has "X" number of "down-arrows" in front to designate the number of index marks that are set on that word (a single word in one text frame). Even the positioning of each "flag" is marked by a black down-arrow. While I don't see any particular harm in that, I wonder how that could ever be useful since it represents true duplicate index marks. I'd be interested in
  19. This falls under the category of annoying and carpal tunnel issues. In the view/Studio/Index window, one may right-click a Topic and perform a "Find in Document" for all occurrences of the topic. After you make a change (add a check mark or remove one, etc.), and click "Done", the index Topic list reverts all the way back to the top of the list. If you do not make a change and then click "Done" the list stays where you were. However, if you first highlight / select the topic (rather than just right-clicking it), then the list will bring you back to the topic you highlighted. Wha
  20. I'm having to go through a large document. The indexing has been hit-or-miss since a lot of editing has been done on the document. Now I'm having to go through the View/Studio/Index list and perform a "Find in Document" for each Topic (and there are many hundreds). What would be truly wonderful is to be able to invoke a full search for ALL words in the index that are missing an index mark. It would display the same as it does now for single Topics but would show ALL of the topics that have missing index marks in the document. All you would have to do is scroll down through the automa
  21. Apologies if this has already been asked, but is there a way to edit an index mark? I can delete it, but if I try to select the word or the index mark itself and add mark, it adds a new one rather than editing the existing one. (This makes sense if I want to put multiple marks by the same word but not if I want to adjust an existing mark.) The reason I need this is to edit the marks the Index panel inserts. Its find in document feature is much nicer than adding marks manually, but it doesn't let me add an override style to make one entry the primary one (bold or italic, for example). It s
  22. Congratulations on the launch of Publisher. It looks great, and I am excited to get to learn it. I presently use InDesign, and one feature I found very helpful was a plugin script called index-direct.jsx. By using this script, you could have a full list of the index topics in a separate document, and the script would go through the list and form an index for your main document. A thousand entries were completed in a matter of seconds. I am hoping that Affinity or a script writer will be able to provide a similar piece of software. Cheers.
  23. Suggestion: When you have the Studio/Index panel open, and when you use it to add an indexed word(s), it would save a lot of clicking/dragging the Studio/Index panel list up and down IF the software would immediately "jump" to the newly added item in the Studio/Index panel. The next step, usually, is to find the word(s) and check-mark each one you wish to include in the index. I find that I'm constantly scrolling back and forth to find the newly added word(s).
  24. I just created an index but the page numbers are out of order (see screenshot below). I've read the Help doc and searched the forum for 'index AND page AND number" but don't see anything addressing this problem. I've certainly done something wrong but can't imagine what or how to tell Publisher to sort the page numbers. Any suggestions would be most appreciated. Thanks Doug Running Affinity Beta Publisher 1.7.0.238 on macOS Mojave
  25. Hey affinity team, a while ago there had been existing an index of common feature requests which gave the users some ideas about which features might be expected in future releases. https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/10410-common-feature-requests-index/ Could you please make such a sticky post again? Thank you very much. Benny
