  1. Would be dandy if the Find & Replace in Publisher could also search linked Designer & Photo files (if it's actual text, that is).
  2. Hej there... I'm having a serious problem with Affinity Publisher. I have my document, with loads of linked images in RGB. Now I have to change them to CMYK. But when I do, the images lose their placement and size. They get bigger or smaller, they jump to the left or the right.. (I tried in serval ways- first, click edit document and swich to Aff Photo, format to cmyk..save and boom.. image is MUCH bigger than before.) I have to place each image all over again... How can this be solved??
  3. Hi, I prepared some Illustrations in Designer. One designer file with several artboards on it. I place the file linked in my Publisher doc, referencing several artboards all over the doc. Whenever I change something in the designer file und update it in Publisher, all placed artboards are resized to a very small size. What's the problem here? I tried to copy all in a new Publisher file, but this problem stays. That's not what I was expecting... I wanted to reuse the Deisgner file in some Publisher docs (translations) and need to change or add illustrations. The resize is a problem.
  4. I tried the mask layer linking that @carl123 demonstrated. The linking of masks worked fine for me. I then tried editing the linked-from-mask, and the linked-to-mask, both masks reflected edits of either. But while the actual layers updated, the thumbnails were updated going one way but not the other. See circle on unsharp-mask mask but not on levels mask. (macOS 11.2)
  5. In Designer 1.9 I stumbled across linked layers. I thought this was only a Photo feature(?). I can view a Links panel, and link / unlink between layers and change attributes. I only found this by accident when I noticed the 'linked to' icon in one of my adjustment layers. Is this some 'hidden' feature that's not documented? Searching for mention of it in help or on the internet only gives me results for Photo. There is no matching item in the Layers or Studio menus. So how would I explicitly enable the Links panel normally?
  6. I have found a repeatable bug with linked images in Publisher. Here is the repeat steps. First create an image in Affinity Photo Make a new Publisher file, link to the Photo file twice. In each picture frame move to a different part of the image. In Publisher, crop away the part of the image you are not using. In my example I have 4 hats. I crop out all but 1 hat for each "picture frame" in Publisher. Close the Publisher document. Edit the Affinity Photo document, save and close Re-open the Publisher document. The position and crop information has been reset
  7. Linking an image instead of embedding it, would be useful if you're working on different documents with the same file, i.e. a logo in a design phase. So if you change that logo it will be respected in every file it is linked. Besides that it doesn't increase your Designer file, that could be crucial if you're working with large files and make a lot of versions / copies of your Designer file. I think it's like the new version of the Photoshop Smartobjects (CC version). Would be great if this makes sense to you too and isn't too hard to implement. Thanks!
  8. Hello folks, I have the following situation: I have opened a file that I created with Affinity Publisher on the PC with Affinity Designer on the Ipad. In this document of Affinity Publisher the images and PDF files are linked. I have collected the images and PDF documents separately in folders. Now I loaded all the files on the Ipad and wanted to continue working on the .afpub document on the go with Affinity Designer. Opening it was no problem, but the attempt to relink the images and PDF documents fails. I have not found any such function.😬 Will the function to relink files on Affinity
  9. Hello, In Affinity Publisher 1.8.5.703 I have a problem exporting the correct colors to PDF. What worked for me until October 21, 2020 without problems, now makes mistakes with the same settings. I am sending an example in the attachment. Let's focus on the logo at the top right. Its correct colors are: orange 0-50-100-0 and gray: 0-0-0-60 This was fine in version 02 of my document. In version 03 of this document, as well as in all my other documents, the colors of the linked objects appear differently than the original. The problem is only with linked sources, because the bar in the
  10. After I installed 3. update for all three programs, my apps are no longer linked together. Before, when I opened my Publisher file, the other two would open as well and would show on the top tool bar so I could jump between the three programs. Now, they are no longer linked and I have to open all three apps individually, which will make sharing and working on files between the three programs so much more difficult. Does anyone know why or have a solution to the problem? Was I on a beta testing or something because I read a question where someone "wished" they could do something like this, but
  11. Dear community, After working on my portfolio for 2 months–having it opened, saved & closed as many times–I encountered today my first bug regarding AP. AP crashes every time I try to open a specific file. I made a copy of the file on my desktop, and the copied file opened with the assets being missing. So, my guess is that It should be an assets (loading, indexing, etc) issue... I tried reinstalling AffPub, but it still doesn't open the specific file... I could try to re-link the "missing" assets of the file but is there a more optimal solution? I opened the c
  12. A really useful feature that would be a boon in a desktop publishing app it the ability to link document files from word processing applications to text frames in the publishing app. This may be a difficult thing to implement due to the many formats out there but certain word processing applications could be supported, as could text file editors. Also supporting RTF and TXT formats would be quite helpful. The Open Document format would be one to support, also Microsoft Word, Google Docs, Corel WordPerfect. Then we could edit the text in the word processing package of our choice and save
  13. Feature Request 1: Consider allowing all applications in the Affinity Suit to link documents like Affinity Publisher. Feature Request 2: If/when linking across all Affinity Applications is possible, consider allowing the user to select not only select a specific art board or the entire document but also any layer at any level in the layers hierarchy of a linked or embedded document. Feature Request 3: Similar to linking, consider allowing for application-level symbols. Currently, symbols only exist at the document level. Such a feature achieves the same ends in feature requests 1 and
  14. Suppose I have 2 documents: document1 and document2: I place document1 into document2. As I place it, may I choose to link document1 into document2 instead of embed it (which occurs by default)? If so, may I edit document1 independent of document2 so that the changes may be observed in document2 in real time? (The same way they would if I were editing changes to an embedded copy of document1, but instead so that the changes are actually occurring to the real document1.) If so, I should be able to use document1 as a or multi-document or application level symbol from which I can link i
  15. Hello! is it possible to link a text file, in such a way as it can be with images in Resource Manager? what I need is for the text to be updated (loaded from external RTF, TXT or any other text file that is periodically corrected) each time the project is opened in Publisher
  16. If you change the displayed/active artboard of a multi artboard Designer file placed on a master page, this change won't be reflected on regular pages. It always shows the artboard that was first visible upon placing the file. It's possible this also happens with other types of multipage documents (Affinity Photo, PDFs) but I only tested with Designer files. Steps to reproduce: Open Affinity Designer Create a new document with 2 Artboards Draw a purple circle on the first artboard and a blue square in the second, just so they're instantly recognizable Save i
  17. hello people, i'm using affinity designer - latest version - and windows 10 with 32 GB ram and a gforce gfx 970 card and it's VERY VERY slow when i'm typing some text or move things around the workspace. is there anything wrong with the gforce or did i miss some settings? in performance settings i switched to gforce 970 and FAST preview setting but it's slow as hell. --------- next thing i didn't find anything in the forum is: i have a few afdesign files and i want to link them in one master file. i created a artboard file and PLACED them. when i want to export this master
  18. Hi all, Quick question here. It's about Publisher, so hope this is in the right area of the forums. Right now I make customisable kid's books in Adobe InDesign with linked graphics (characters in the story) from Adobe Illustrator (lots of layers and options etc.). I am testing Affinity (extremely impressed so far!) and I have found that I can instead save that AI artwork as a PDF, import it into Affinity Designer whereby I save it in that format and then import / place it into Publisher. So far so good. One great, albeit simple, thing I have found Publisher does that InDesign ca
  19. It would be very helpful if I could set "Prefer Linked" as the default when creating a new document [Ctrl]N.
  20. I was trying to achieve pseudo image layers by mixing the Replace Image function with Macros. Here's the basic idea: Draw a red circle in some application (Illustrator for example), export that as a PNG image, let's call it circle.png Place circle.png into an Affinity Photo file Edit circle.png elsewhere so the circle is blue now Use the Move Tool to select the placed image layer inside the Affinity Photo file Press the Replace Image button in toolbar, choose the circle.png image again The placed image now shows a blue circle as expected This works great! Let's try to automate it with a Macro
  21. It would be a welcome addition if we could make a swatch based on another swatch, not unlike Sass (https://robots.thoughtbot.com/controlling-color-with-sass-color-functions). In interfaces for example, I could create a green button with a darker green border. The darker green would be based on the original green and have the same hue and saturation, but the lightness would differ. That way, if I later change my mind and want to make all green buttons blue, the dark border would shift along. I'm looking forward to your thoughts!
  22. Hello, my question to A.D: Placing several Photos in a document, I think the pictures are embedded. Is it so? Saving the document, it is hundreds of MB big. I don`t know, how pictures are only linked? Is there a possibility?
  23. Hi. Please make in 1.5 Photo and Designer better modifications. First of all ability to place Linked, not only embedded document, converting selected layers to embedded/linked document. After applying Perspective tool to embedded document it becomes just pixel layer, make it keeping smart object like in Photoshop after applying any modifications. Add ability to make independent copy on embedded document, not only instance. Converting between Linked/Embedded. Look how it works in Photoshop, all modifications on Smart Object are just adding like smart filters or smart modifiers. It is very impor
  24. Will Affinity Photo have support for Photoshop Linked Smart Objects?
