  1. Currently, the pages studio and viewport are relatively detached from each other. I can double click in the pages studio to jump to this page in the viewport. However, the reverse action: double clicking on the current/ active page in the viewport to jump to this page both in the viewport and pages studio, is not possible. This is useful to manage the position of the page within the document, so you don't have to scroll to go to the page. In the pages studio, this function is called "Go to Spread" in the right click menu, so I propose to add this reverse action to the viewport too.
  2. As the title describes, I have a document that crashes whenever I try to interact with a specific page. I initially noticed a stray element, which was technically "off-canvas" and quite large. I tried to navigate to the page to delete the offending element and the application crashed. This behaviour seems to be consistent on both macOS and Windows. Now I cannot do anything to the page: If I try and select an elements on the page - it crashes If I try an make the page the active page - it crashes If I try to delete it - it crashes If I try to delete the page before it - it crash If I use the resource manager to locate the element on the page - it crashes I tried to open the document up in Affinity Designer, but there is now way to change the active page (consider adding this feature to desktop). I used the iPad version which can cycle through pages and it also crashes when I get to the offending page. The only way to salvage my document was to select (in the pages panel) the page before it, it and the page after it - and delete all 3 pages at the same time. Obviously this is not ideal, because I had to redo work that was already done. I would like to provide the document to a moderator review, perhaps we can squash this bug.
  3. I'm new to Designer and I can't seem to find the option to create multiple pages in a document. Can anyone give me a hint?
  4. I have a document from which I’d like to export multiple slight variations in content and size. Artboards are not a solution: Objects can only belong to one artboard at a time, which requires duplicating the majority of objects across artboards, and then I would need to update each object on each artboard. Selecting a frame or background object and then clicking Artboard Tool, Size Selection, Insert Artboard does not work, because the resultant artboard bizarrely is always 50% larger than the object’s stroke width (bug filed in this support thread here). Artboards introduce more complication than is necessary. My current workaround is to: Note the position and dimensions of my frame or background object. Click Document Setup, Dimensions, Anchor to Page, choose a bottom anchor, disable proportion lock, enter the desired height of current height minus top position. Repeat the previous step with a top anchor chosen and a desired height equal to the frame/background height. This workaround is tedious, time-consuming, and prone to error. Please introduce a simple, click-and-drag, graphical-user-interface tool to crop the document/page/canvas to an object or guides. Thank you.
  5. Publisher: Is it possible to set more than 2 pages in a row? For layouts in the architectural field, this is very often necessary to evaluate the presentation of several plans side by side. kind regards shoeller
  6. Hey all, Need your advice. First time user of Affinity Publisher (or any design tool) & working on my comic book creation. FYI: I am using Affinity Designer for creating the art work. All art work is blank & white, and exported as transparent PNG I am using the Trial version of Publisher app on my Macbook I have 3 questions: (1) How do I get boxes around my artwork? I tried using the Rectangle box, but it sits over the artwork and I couldn't get it to appear behind it. (2) How do I plan my page spread for the book front cover, the back cover & inside pages? Besides my content pages, I have the following also - book title page, publisher details & Introduction. I may have Contents and an Index page as well. Please see the attachment on the layout I currently have based on the document setup. There is a Page 1 by itself up at the top. Is that the Cover page? (3) How do I insert page numbers? (4) How do I include a Header and/or a Footer on every page of my artwork? Thank you so much for your time and looking forward to hearing from you all!
  7. What is the practical limit for the number of pages in a Publisher document? I am compiling a booklet that will be around 100 pages ( double-sided on 50 physical pages), being a mixture of text and graphics. I want to output it as a print-ready PDF without splitting the document.
  8. Hi, I am on windows10 with Publisher v1.8.5.703, I have a document fully finished . Unfortunately the artist who worked on it made it 18 inch x 12 inch while it needs to be 17 inch x11 inch , due to some misunderstanding about 1 inch margins... Luckily for me , he used all kinds of containers(frame and text boxes) for text and nothing is freely floating. All I need to do is resize the masters' dimensions, scale a few frames and be done with it. (we have like 5 master pages) However I cant. I double click on a master and then click on spread setup, select all spreads and change the dimensions. The software freezes, can only be shut down with task manager. Is there a solution to this ? I dont want to turn an hour of work tops to a week of work. Thanks
  9. I know this has been reported in the past but we still seem to have this issue and that is that PDF page sizes do not export to the correct size. They are off by up to 5/1000th of an inch. Here is an example: So in this example you have a ready to print PDF but on the left the page size is 5.503x2.130 while it's supposed to be what affinity shows and that is 5.5x2.125. This may not seem like a big problem but it really delays our Quite Imposing automation for printing. The file then has to be manually cropped in Acrobat. This happens with almost all files with multiple artboards. I have been told that I need to use for pixel alignment and that should correct it - I keep it on and I still get these results. Is there a way to resolve it on my end or is something that Serif must do? thanks!
  10. I'm not sure to understand what I have to toggle to see the objects outside of the page. In one document I had these reference materials outside the page and then I must have done something, resulting in all objects outside of the page to be invisible. Can't see any obvious option in Document setup. Where's the magic button? Thanks.
  11. Here are some simple vector Page Curl Assets that you can use with any of the Affinity applications. It’s not photorealistic but it’s usable for most simple things. How to use: 1. Import the attached “Page Curl Assets” into your application. 2. When you need a Page Curl, drag the “Page Curl” asset to the bottom-right of your image. 3. Drag the “Page Curl Background Remover” to align with the top-left of the Page Curl layer. 4. Drag the “Page Curl Background Remover” layer inside the image layer. 5. Group the image layer. 6. Drag the “Page Curl” layer into the group (above the image). You can now resize and move the image with the curl together. Note: If you have a white background, especially if your image is the same size as the page, you may not need the “Page Curl Background Remover”. The attached GIF shows all the steps. Technical Tip: If you want to resize the curl, move the bottom-right node of the background eraser to match the bottom-right of the page curl, then resize both the curl and eraser together, then move the bottom-right node of the eraser out again. It sounds complicated but it’s not that difficult. (The eraser is oddly-shaped to stop artefacts from the underlying image coming through sometimes.) I hope people find this useful.

  12. Possibly related to the other bug, but when the images on a page takes forever to load (it still looks low-res blocky) and then I click ">" then the app crashes. This happens almost every single time, so with a document with lots of images, it takes forever to go through each page looking at things.
  13. When Include printer marks > Include page information is checked instead of just filename and page number, spread / artboard name should be added also.
  14. Since the last update, no page margins are displayed anymore. It works only for documents saved with this option, but not for new ones...
  15. Windows 10 Home 1903, Publisher 1.7.2.471. Every now and again, seemingly randomly to me, Publisher hangs for a few seconds and then page background goes ‘dark’ or invisible. See attached image where you can see that the page background has ‘gone’, however, at the bottom of the image you can see where scrolling up a little has revealed part of the white page background. It happened this time while I was trying to drag a text frame but I’ve seen it when modifying tables and quite a few other times. I have never seen this happen with previous versions of Publisher, even the betas. I have only seen this behaviour on this document but this is the only document I have edited for any real length of time with this version of Publisher. The document was created using a production version of Publisher – I don’t know which one – and not a beta. Double-clicking on a spread in the Pages panel takes everything back to normal but it’s a bit disconcerting.
  16. Hi, maybe what I try to do is not yet possible in publisher, but it is for many years in InD. I try to set up a trifold page layout with 6 different sides, so I can add the same borders and guides to each side. In Indesign it is just a drag and drop in the page panel. (After you toggle the right switch in the panel menu). So I want to face page 1 - 3 next to each other and 4 - 6. Is this possible yet? Thanks for your help guys + girls! Sebo
  17. If I have overlooked this feature I am sorry to bother all y'all (my southern is showing). I Love the way in PagePlus X9 you could visually choose page size and format from the New Publications My templates screen. I have been unable to find a similar facility in Affinity Publisher. If it is available I would appreciate a pointer on how to find it. It it is not available, my I suggest some form of it be added to Publisher. I have kept my PagePlus X9 so I can easily print labels, etc. that are easily formated from Templates screen. I would like to find it in Publisher so that I no longer need PagePlus. Thank You in advance.
  18. I have some text where, at the moment, it reads something like this: "If you would like more information on this, turn to page ## to see full details." Once the document is pretty much complete I then go through the whole thing searching for ## and manually insert the real page number. Not a massive task for what I need to do, but still a bit of a chore and things can get overlooked. Does Publisher have an "Insert the page number of this selected layer at this position in the text" function? I've had a look in the Help but I can't see anything relevant. P.S. The page number must automatically update if the page number of the layer changes, otherwise the result would be worse than manually searching for ##.
  19. I am looking at making a comic (standard comic book size) as a test before I try out the real thing. But I am confused on how to do the page set up with trim and actual size. I have seen singe page sheets and double wide so that it has a fold. If you did the double-wide doesn't the center margin have to change size since the outside pages need to be bigger than the page at the centerfold? So I guess what I am asking can someone please make me a blank comic page (No panels) with the trim marks, and space for the header, page number etc? And can that also be used for the cover? Thanks for any help
  20. When creating a new document, you can setup the page dimensions. After creating the document it is possible to set the dimensions of the spread, I think it would be useful to have the option to set the dimensions on spread size while creating a new document. I noticed this because my book print lab only gives spread dimensions.
  21. Windows 10 - Publisher 1.7.0.128 When I have a document - see first attached image - with seven pages arranged into two-page spreads, it comes through in Acrobat Reader as a four-page document - see attached second image - which looks a bit odd to me. I can change the View settings in Acrobat to 'Single-Page, Scrolling' and it looks as I would have expected in the past, but the 'Two-Page, Scrolling' (as in the second image) looks strange. Is this 'pages in spreads become joined pages' concept something that I should be expecting? I only ask as my other DTP software doesn't work this way so I'm just wondering if I need to start thinking in a slightly different way to how I'm used to thinking when I create documents. It's not a problem, just a query. (If this is how it should be then that's absolutely fine and I'll just have to create some of my documents a bit differently in the future.)
  22. I am trying to use as less files as possible for comic projects using the same pages (digital/print editions, reprints, trade paperbacks, revised editions, etc.), and I think one of the ways to do this would be to have the option of grouping Page thumbnails into folders, and having a check box beside each page and folder. This way, we could just check the pages to export in a project before exporting it to PDF for example. Would it be possible to have such an option in Affinity Publisher?
  23. Page wrap should be built in. it is something that should always be there. it is not something you should have to turn on every time you use a word processor. i tried to turn the feature on and nothing happened. the words just kept going off the page. this needs to be addressed.
  24. Hello, I would like to design a document, sort of a book. I used to work on X.press (a long long time ago), didn't really need it at the indesign time and need it again now. So I thought I'd use designer. I'm not sure I understand the difference in-between a page and an artwork. Also I read in the forum somewhere that you where working on a new software, like Publisher or so, would this one be the one I'd need to use to replace Indesign (the designer being more like Illustrator ? ) I hope I'm being clear enough, Many thanks
  25. Hello, I can't believe I have to ask for something so simple... but I can't find this, and I only found something from the forum for Designer, which didn't apply. So, how to I add pages or artboards? Cheers!
