  1. I have a document with several master pages which are very similar at first glance but also just different enough that I made them master pages in the first place. I'm aware of the 'mouse over page' to show the tooltip which shows the master page used, but that means I have to actually put the mouse over every page to see it. Way back in PagePlus 11 there was a button to show which master page is being applied to a page, such as in the screenshot below. I would like to see this brought back. It is easy to use and also very quick to scroll down over dozens of pages (much quicker than mouse over every page on every spread). For info I did check the forums and found similar posts such as: That post was > 3 years ago so it is worth a bump.
  2. Hey all, maybe it would be a nice feature, if you could create groups for master pages simillar to grouping the layers. It would be helpful, especially for documents with a lot of master pages. In addition to that a nice feature would be the sorting of master pages, like in the assets (sort name, date of creation, last use, … asc, desc). Thanks a lot and stay creating, folks!
  3. Hi, I am working on a presentation in Affinity Publisher. I have masterpages with two text frames: one for the title of the slide and the second for the chapter of the slide. Having started with my previous presentation file, I am now wondering how I could update all chapter text from the masterpage without affecting the title text of the slide. For the chapter text, I have a bar that contains all the chapters. Within this, I want to apply a different characterstyle to the active chapter, so I can have Chapter 1 displayed in bold when I talk about Chapter 1 and have Chapter 2 in bold for Chapter 2 etc. I prefer not to have individual masterpages for each chapter, because that would multiply the amount of masterpages by 7 (leaving me with 21 masterpages to manage). How could I approach the text updating efficiently?
  4. Currently, it is difficult to track which Masterpage are assigned to the current page or to another Masterpage. I propose to have short 2 - 4 character code names associated to a Masterpage. This short name should be independent from the larger page name. So I can have a Masterpage "Chapter Page" and a coded name "Cp" or "Cp-01". In turn, this short name could be displayed on the thumbnail of pages to which it is assigned. That would make it much easier to manage larger projects.
  5. Hey everyone, I'm new to Afiinity Publisher and I'm trying to edit a pdf. I've uploaded a PDF that has an old logo that is existent in over 200+ pages. Instead of deleting each old logo in each layer piece by piece I thought I would add a white square over the old logo and then apply the new logo over it. However, each time I apply this to all the other pages with the Master Page, the new layer does not cover up the old image underneath. How can it so that I can apply a layer and make sure it's at the TOP of all the other layers. Thank you!
  6. Hi! I have a pages with 2 columns. These columns are created in Master pages. Now I need to pick the single page (A4) from my document and drop they in another (32x45 cm) document that have registrations marks. In this 32x45 page I need to drop my A4 single page to make a correct imposition to double-sided printing. Now, If I pick my A4 page, I grab only pictures... no text, because it's flow in a masterpages columns. How to move my A4 page to 32x45 page to create an imposition print-ready documents? Thanks
  7. Hello to all, When you select a row of pages, for example from page 7 to page 32, and on this selection you want to apply for a master page only to the even pages or the odd pages, you cannot. This master page is applied to all the even or odd pages of the document. I worked on a book of 210 pages in 15 chapters where the page headings took each time the title of the current chapter. Instead of 15 manipulations (1 per chapter), I had to perform 220 manipulations (1 per page). Hence the suggestion. Have a nice day, and protect yourself well.
  8. I tried to use the same content for different layouts. This is pretty well documented in one of the Video Tutorials, but now I still have one problem: When switching my page to the 2nd Master page, one picture gets lost (means, the corresponding frame is empty). Maybe someone here could have a look at the document and can tell me, what I am doing wrong. Your help would be much appreciated. What I am doing is: - Duplicate the one page in the document - assign the Master page "Katalogseite"(by drag and drop of the Masterpage to the newly created page - confirm the change of the page size - confirm the move of an object without corresponding text outside the master page (that's perfectly ok, it is a text frame which will get deleted afterwards) - and now the content of a picture frame (Bild 1) is missing and I have no idea why and how I can correct it. I'm pretty sure it is only a stupid error on my side, but I've not been able to find it. I'm using the Release version 1.8.5, but the problem also occurs with the latest beta version. Thanks in advance for any helpful hint Begleittext_Template.afpub
  9. Hello, I am new to Publisher and I didn't find any answer to this question: how can I define a footer that is shared by many master pages? The goal here is to be able to edit the content of my footer (for instance put specific name or change a version number) without needing to do that on all my master pages. It would be like having a footer master page that apply to all or part of other master pages. Hope this graphic helps to understand my goal. Thank you for your help! Antoine
  10. Dear all. I need to place approx 1750 images (photographs), 1 per page and control them all via a master page. Is this possible without having to individually place and resize every single one? I will be needing to do this fairly frequently so am hoping Publisher can do this, rather than using InDesign. Then I can edit text, contents, cover pages etc as required, but it means I can output a book as a PDF or for print pretty efficiently. Thanks in advance for you advice. Ian
  11. I am assembling a cookbook in Publisher and want to sort recipes alphabetically. I am using a master page template that has two pages of the exact same setup except the page number is in the left or right. In the video, I am trying to move one recipe (Page 6- Flour Tortillas) between two other recipes (to end up after Page 4- Focaccia). When I drag the one page to the new location, it entirely deletes the tortilla recipe and puts in a blank of the master page at page 5, and the pizza dough recipe only has the ingredients move to the new page and the rest is nowhere to be found in the document. Would there be some sort of issue with the master pages? Any help is appreciated! CookBook.mov
  12. I would like to be able to make subtle changes to a text box size and placement on an active page that uses a Master page to locate the text box initially. I just need to nudge the box a bit in one case and make a slight size change in another case. I can't find a way to control the text box while on the active document page. I can do this in InDesign and would love to know how to do it in Affinity Publisher
  13. Hey all. I am creating a new document. In it, I want to set different background colors for different pages. In InDesign, I used to draw a rectangle and change its color and move it all the way to the back to set background color for a page. In Publisher, I noticed that for a page number defined in master, its properties like color could be changed for an individual page. So I assumed same would apply if I added a rectangle to the master page and made it spread to all corners of the page. But I can't change the background color for this rectangle from a new page. In the attached image, I have set the background color to green, and page number color to orange. Now in the pages panel, I can change the page number color to magenta. How do I go about setting a background color for pages? Thanks!
  14. 1. Komplex Content of a Master page 2. Import for multi-page pdf 3. Merging the komplex master page with the multi-page pdf. At the moment, it is possible to place the first page of a multi-page pdf in a document with a komplex master page. But if you open a multi-page pdf, the master page is empty. To apply a complex master, saved as a separate file is not possible. There could be different solutions to the problem. Indesign has a plugin for that. Not ideal, but it works. Maybe there could be a solution for this problem as well?
  15. You can create multiple master pages for one page. I have not found a way to delete a single master page. It seems only possible to delete all master pages at once. It would be helpful if individual master page could be removed.
