  1. We may have discrete Sections available as Fields but running footers/headers making use of specific paragraph types (i.e. Heading 1, which might have Flow break to the top of the next page). Ideally, we could configure which paragraph styles are accessible in View > Studio > Fields. My suggestion would be to have it user-configurable from right-click the "Edit <Paragraph Style>" Paragraph > Field Options Available as Field? First or last available? On Page or Spread? (see relevance of first/last in previous question) This would make for some real
  2. Would be keen if we could filter based on master page. That is, show only the pages that use this master page type. Thanks.
  3. In Publisher, importing a CMYK jpg or png and using the K only button to convert to a spot colour monotone and I have these results (see attachment). The master displays correctly, but the document page has some kind of super intense duotone effect. I could only change this by editing detached on the document page and re-clicking on K only. Kind of defeats the purpose of having the master! Also had some odd effects importing B&W images made in Photo which end up looking washed out in Publisher. What's the story here?
  4. Greetings! What I am wanting to do is have a book that must be rotated every time a page is turned. So for example.... If I have a Master page with the Spread going horizontal... So you can read it from left to right..... Then I want the spread to be from Top to Bottom...... I figure that this feature would cause confusion for some people if this is not what they want... Thanks in advance!
  5. I've been working on a document with around 60 pages for a few weeks now. Everything worked fine until I noticed a few days ago that the background image at the right bleed is no longer displayed for some pages. So I wanted to apply the master page again, but Publisher crashed. I tried to isolate the error a bit. The error occurs with the file attached if I drag the master page "Text right" towards the right side of the master page "Text". The app crashes the moment the mouse cursor reaches the right side of the master page "Text". Interestingly, when I delete pages 4 and 5 or 6 and
  6. I made a lot of Guides to a master pages and realised later, I could also use them on another, already existing Master Page. Didn't find a way to copy & paste them (or transfer by another method). Appreciate any help.
  7. I try to create a 12-page calendar, based with master-page, containing calendar greed-table. I've experienced a series of crashes while tried to set up proper table formatting, then, while tried to put a placeholder text in the table on a master page, and then, trying to replace the placeholder text with an actual data on the calendar pages. And after some edit attempts Affinity just can not load the file (It reports loading, Uses CPU a lot, but open nothing for more than 5 minutes) (see screenshot attached). See master-page template attached.
  8. Steps to reproduce: Create a document with a master page. On the master page, create two picture frames at the same coordinates. Using the Layers panel, drag one picture frame into the other so that it becomes the other frame’s content. If you are using the attached file, start here. On a regular document page, select the inner picture frame using the Layers panel. Place an image into the inner picture frame. Expected: the image would be placed. Actual result: the inner picture frame disappears from the Layers panel as if it was deleted. Only the ou
  9. Publisher Windows, Version Hi, i use publisher the most time for webdesign. This means i typicaly prepare some master pages for the common viewport widths, e.g. fullhd, tablet, mobile, ... When designing the content pages i have to scale the layout pages to different heights, to filll them with demo content. E.g. a layout page that shows mobile content will be a very long "strip" which is 360px wide, but 3000px in height. Every content page has an individual height depending on the demo content in it. This height changes always during the design process. But of co
  10. Hi Folks, First time AF Publisher user here and I am just trying to get to grips with it. I have been using a few tutorial videos to get me up to speed. In one I have come across an issue... I have been trying to follow along with a video (Link posted below). However, I have an issue right at the start with the document setup. Here is the link to the video https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=27&v=BlhJFQNpLAY&feature=emb_logo Go to about 1:08 minutes in she creates her document. Now when the document is created she has a Master A, Page 1 and Pag
  11. I have problems using master pages There is a menu way to "show master pages" However it is always greyed out I want to create a master page that I can then choose to use in a new file Questions 1) Is there a way to produce a template file? 2) How do I import a Master page of my choice into a new file
  12. I think I may found a bug concerning margins on making a new master page. Please repeat the steps. 1. Make a new master page. While the dialogue prompt comes up specify the following margins (as an example with page/document size of 1080 x 1920) Left: 120 px Right: 120 px Top: 250 px Bottom: 250 px Click OK. You will notice the bug, such that the margin specifications for "Left" and "Top" seems to be switched. To fix this, you'll have to go into Guides and fix the "switch" between "Left" and "Top." Once you press OK, you'll see the intended margins aforementi
  13. Windows 10 Home 1909, Publisher I have a small document that I want to delete a master page from (actually I want to delete two but I can’t delete one). I select the master page in the Master Pages Panel, then right-click the master page and choose Delete from the contextual menu. The master page is deleted but the application then hangs. I’ve waited a few minutes but in the end I have to end the task from the Task Manager. See attached video showing that I can’t scroll any panel, nor select from a menu, nor select any layers. I can provide the document if you give me some
  14. If I have a bullet whose size is larger than the following text, how can I align it with the centerline of the first line? Is there any way to adjust the vertical alignment of a bullet?
  15. Dear Sirs, I have a similar problem whereby every time i delete a master slide the whole programme crashes and freezes! The only action then is to forcefully use task manager to close AP? I noticed in the internet this was a problem in previous years so i'm not sure why Affinity has not resolved the issue in all the updates!
  16. Win 7 sp1 Publisher If I move the X origin 8.5 inches to the right on a two page publication, so that the zero is centred on the spine, that X origin does not carry over when the master page is applied to regular pages. To get the ruler zeroed on the spine, it appears that the X origin must be relocated separately for each and every two pages.
  17. The problem I face was that I couldn't place chosen pictures in placeholders on a spread: I applied Master B to page 2 and Master C on page 3. Then I chose 7 pictures, all TIF in this case, to be placed to each of the placeholder in the spread. The result is that I can’t place the pictures in either of the placeholders on page 2, but on page 3 I can. I repeated the same thing, but with smaller jpg pictures. The result was the same. Now, if I apply Master B or Master C to an entire spread, all pictures are placeable. It seems though that a combination of 2 master pages on the same sp
  18. Hello world, I seem unable to place page content in between the elements of the master Page, i.e. have some Master Page layer always on top of Page elements/layers, and other Master Page layer always below Page elements/layers. This is easily achieved in e.g. InDesign (and Scribus for that matter), so I am curious whether I am doing something utterly wrong or whether this is a missing feature (which I hereby request). Greetings, --Thomas
  19. I'm using Affinity Publisher 1.7.3 on Mac Catalina 10.15.3 Yesterday I created and worked on a new document without problem. The document is for a book with facing page layouts and has two Master Pages (A and B). I was able to apply, clear and change without issue but today when I reopen the document I'm experiencing the following bug. When I create a new page using Master Page A and then a second facing page using Master Page B, I can't flow the text from the first page into the second. I can see that the text frames from Master A still exist on the second page that has Master B app
  20. Hi there, I have a 120 page document with an odd/even spread, so have used 2 master pages. I copied master A, edited the resulting master B, and applied one to even pages and one to odd pages. But, when I look at the file, the odd and even pages are different sizes! I have cut down the file and attached it here - can anyone tell me: (1) what I have done wrong, and (2) how can this be fixed without having to re-do all the text flows! Many thanks Garry small file.afpub
  21. I'm using publisher 1.7.3 on windows. I was having issues with a white background showing on my page numbers so on some pages I removed the original master test by deleting the text from the master page layer in the master page folder, then realized I can change the master page to delete the white background in the text by doing a factory reset. I couldn't figure out how else to remove the background color on my text. Is there a way to refresh the page so that the master page will reload and fix the pages I tried to adjust or are master pages handled more like instances and each one
  22. I've not been able to achieve this, maybe some can advise me if its possible, or I'm doing something wrong: I'm looking to set content on different layers on the master page temple, some layers to appear behind all of the main page content, and some layers to appear in front of the main content
  23. I have a simple document in Affinity Publisher. I have a master spread "A" applied to the spread of two pages. Essentially the default Master as the document is created. I have added a section name and page number to the master "A" pages. I also have a second master page, "B", which is applied only to the first page in a section and shows a heading text frame at the top.. The document contains about 10 sections. Each page consists of text frames with the occasional image , linked, added . So a very simple document. My problem comes with deleting pages. By default I have the page num
  24. When having Master A containing a linked image and a Master B containing Master A, when updating the linked image in the document only Master A gets the updated image. Master B keeps the old image. So all masters containing a master with a linked image don't get updated when we reload the changed linked image in the document. See video. only-first-masterpage-updates.mp4
  25. I have created a new project with a few master pages, each of them as facing pages. All appears to be well until I output to PDF, and at that point, Publisher puts the first page on a portrait page, as expected, but places subsequent page pairs on paper in landscape, two pages per sheet. I have reviewed the tutorial for Master pages, the help on the subject, and have looked high and low in settings for anything which might affect this. Is this a known issue, of have I missed something?
