  1. I have a commemorative booklet A4 landscape with a picture frame (or frames) on each page. I decided to remove the borders on each page, which required the frames to be enlarged. The first one worked fine, I used the corner handles to expand the frame and then adjusted the picture size and placing. On the second and all subsequent frames, the corner handles expanded the frame and the picture together, which resulted in the picture proportions being altered as well. After many trials, I found that if I went to the picture and enlarged it, then when I went to the frame handles, they could be moved to the new page size without adjusting the picture sizing. I could then adjust the picture magnification and the position in the normal way. I attach a Version 1 file, which I opened in V2, and amended the margins to nil, apart from the inner which I amended to half an inch, which should enable you to repeat the problem I encountered. wedding.afpub
  2. Hey everyone! I was just wondering if there is an easy way or option to unpopulate/remove all placed pictures/resources from a previously defined selection of Picture Frames. Can anyone help me out and point me in the right direction? And if the option doesn't exist: Would this be a feature that would be handy for others as well? Or is it just me? 🥲 Edit: My current method (or the only official method?) since I was faced with a similar problem a few months ago is to use the Move Tool, double-click on the Picture Frame in question and hit delete. However, you have to be careful not to accidentally move the picture frame in the process. Alternatively, you could select them in the Layers Palette. But these methods certainly are not the most efficient, are they? Thanks! (Before anyone mentions Master Pages: I use them everywhere they are applicable, but the sizes of the picture frames in my current document vary too much from page to page for Master Pages to help in this case.) 😉
  3. I have an issue in Affinity Publisher 1.9.3 for MacOS wherein sometimes when I place a picture frame, it has rounded handles that allow me to resize, move, and work with the picture frame. Other times, whenever I try to place a picture frame or shape, it appears with Xs rather than rounded handles and while I can select it, I cannot move or resize it. I can't seem to find what selection or option is causing the difference.
  4. I place an image on a page in Publisher, then right-click and select Convert to picture frame. Then, if I move the frame's selection handles, the image shifts here and there within the frame and its magnification might change—what happens depends on how I manipulate the selection handles. This seems like normal behavior. But I discovered a different approach by accident: I place the image onto the page and select Convert to picture frame. Before doing anything else and with either the frame or the image selected, I use the Image control in the context toolbar to resize by some minute amount—say, by as little as .01%. After that, moving the frame's selection handles has an entirely different effect: It crops the image, and the image does not shift position or change magnification while the selection handles are being moved. It's almost as if I'd selected the frame, switched on the obscurely located Lock Children control at the extreme right side of the toolbar, and moved the selection handles only afterward. I actually prefer it this way — it's faster, enabling cropping without the need for Lock Children or having to use the Vector Crop tool. Is it working as designed, though? I'm not finding anything in the online help about this effect of changing magnification.
  5. Hello, I am preparing some templates panels (eg 4x2) and I am stuck in the decision on what to do, because I want to use the ability of Designer to create artboards and export them at once with different names; but at the same time I would like to have the ability to place `picture frames` in my template, so I can be sure that the pictures I add have the same dimensions. I tried to make the template in Publisher, but then the `picture frame` is editable only once if I open the same file with Designer -- so, if I make a mistake and need to insert the picture again the `picture frame` would not be there. On the other way, if I make the template in Designer, and open it in Publisher I have to add the `picture frame` one by one, and export all the artboards one by one. tl:dr: What would be the best way make a template where you can have `picture frames` to add pictures in different artboards, and export the artboards with one click? Thank you in advance Leo
  6. As I'm still unable to add screen shots to forum posts I have to do this as a link to an image on Google Drive. I hope it works. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1aABcWxnxTHtgUFO7z6o-MmPuWg9LbsOK/view?usp=sharing That screen shot shows the aftermath of the following steps: With an image in the clipboard (a screen shot): 1. Draw a frame with the Picture Frame tool. 2. With the frame selected, right-click and select Paste as Content The screen shot now appears within the picture frame. But there's something missing. There should be a second outer handle at the lower-right of the frame. But there isn't. When that kind of additional handle is showing, moving the picture frame handles can crop the image, though moving the outer handle at the lower right will resize frame and image together without cropping. Have I omitted some required step? What became of that outer handle?
  7. I have found "Lock Children" useful but hard to reach. I haven't found it in any menus yet. So far the only access I've found is to click a very tiny icon at the extreme upper right of the Publisher window, drop down a small menu, and select Lock Children. This involves hitting tiny icons or UI elements with the mouse, which is not what I'd call the most user-friendly thing ever. Then, do the same if you need to toggle the setting off again. With this apparently not being anywhere in the keyboard shortcuts dialog, there's no way to assign a keystroke to the command that I know of. But is there some easier way to get to the command? Maybe I've just missed something obvious. If not—publisher developers: Could this check-box not be available at least in the Frame Properties dialog? Or be a menu item in its own right when you right-click a frame? Or be part of the Frame Properties fly-out menu when you right-click a frame?
  8. Following up another thread in which I wrote about having trouble putting a simple rule (stroke) around a rectangular object of type "pixel." The controls for adding a rule work with an object of type "image," but don't work with one of type "pixel". The convert-to-picture-frame menu item is inaccessible when you right-click a pixel object. By accident I discovered an odd workaround: If you select the vector crop tool and crop the pixel object by even some imperceptible amount on one side, suddenly the convert-to-picture-frame menu item does become accessible. Which of these features are by design? Might any of them be bugs? 1. Can't draw a rule (stroke) around a pixel object* 2. Can't convert a pixel object to a picture frame—not immediately. BUT: 3. Slight crop with the vector crop tool enables converting the pixel object to a picture frame * It can be done with the Outline layer effect, but that dialog does not permit enabling square corners (it supports only rounded ones) as far as I know.
  9. Hi there! My goal is to use a master page with empty picture frames on it. Later these frames are supposed to be filled on regular pages. However, some of them need some treatment after beeing imported, be it a levels adjustment or something else. And here my problem starts. Lets have a closer look: Create a new document with any number of pages and use a default master page. Go to the master page and create two empty picture frames. Apply this master to all of your regular pages. Go to one oft he regular pages, select one of the picture frames and click on „replace image“. Choose an appropriate image from your disk. Repeat this for the second picture frame. Now select one of the images and apply any adjustment filter, e.g. „Brightness + Contrast“. Once applied I can’t remove the adjustment any more! I can’t even tweak the settings any more or switch off the adjustment - no matter what layer I select in the layers panel. Am I doing something wrong? I’ve attached a file to demonstrate the problem. Perhaps it’s just me… Best, Volker problem-with-pic-frames.afpub
  10. Today I placed multiple photos in picture frames. The photos came directly out of the camera (Nikon D50), all taken in portrait format. When looked at in any photo viewer, the orientation was correct; when I placed them (linked) in Publisher, they all came out in landscape format and I had to rotate them by 90 degrees. Could this be fixed? I guess Publisher somehow ignored the camera information about the orientation. Thanks for the effort! I appreciate it very much! Greetings Jan
  11. Hi, 1. Create multiple picture frames. 2. Select all the picture frames. 3. Place a single photo (same photo) in all the frames. The photo in the first picture frame is in the right proportion, whereas the same photo in the other frames is distorted. Regards, Vijay
