  1. I started an Affinity Publisher 2 document and just copied and pasted my images (work not saved) from Affinity Photo 2. They look very washed out. Doing some research the problem appears to be something with "color profile"? I don't really understand that, but my question being, is my Publisher document ruined, and I now need to start form scratch? Or is there something I can change in Publisher to save my faded images?
  2. When I try to drag and drop a PDF into publisher, so that I can access it easily and gut out some stuff out of it, Publisher freezes and crashes. Win 11, fresh install. Very annoying. Given that there is not that much new in Publisher (and one is forced to buy it because even basic Publisher files are not backwards compatible), I would expect at least a smooth deployment.
  3. Pretty much what it says... is there an easy way, like a keyboard shortcut, to quickly jump between the text entry and its endnote and vice versa? I know in Word you can just double-click the number to switch between positions. Is there as similar shortcut in Publisher? **edit - never mind, I just found it!🤐**
  4. Setup: 1) Hyphenation is enabled (checked) in the Style that I am using for body text and the language is set to Auto (US English). 2) I have studied the help file on hyphenation and have kept the default settings since, if I understand correctly, they provide the most aggressive (so to speak) hyphenation. But it's not working well. I often get loose lines; see the screen shot. In each place where I have inserted a red line, if I type a hyphen followed by a space, the preceding letters and the hyphen jump up to the previous line. So there is certainly space available, but no automatic hyphenation happens. Adding a soft hyphen at these points has no effect. I would appreciate any advice!
  5. Hello out there, I would be *very* sorry, if that question is already sufficiently solved/answered. But I do only find the same *question*/feature request: How do I colour grayscale tiffs or 1-bit (= b&w) tiffs in AFPub? For professional designers this seems to me a rather vital feature: creating a picture frame inserting a grayscale/1-bit tif in that frame activating the *frame* –> allocating the *background*/frame a certain colour (e.g. red) activating the *picture* –> allocation the picture/content an other colour (e.g. yellow) voilà! You have a two colour logo or even more, by working with gradients, a colourful result! the same to 1-bit/b&w-pictures ("bitmaps"): Every black&white tiff has a *transparent* (because "white") background every black pixel in a b&w (1-bit) tif can be allocated any colour. voilà! :-))) Is there a tutorial for it? I would be very pleased, if that *very important* feature has been realized in AFPub since the first question for it in 2018! Best wishes to your for 2023! Johannes
  6. Hello everyone! Happy holidays and happy new year. Thank you for reading my post. Am I the only one experiencing this oddity? As in even in version 1 of Publisher, it annoys me that the software doesn't remember the window size and position for say: File >> New or when opening up the Guides Panel to manually add in (type in) guide pixel values. It always centers. Is this a "feature" or is this a bug? In other words, Publisher does not remember window position and size in version 1 and still the same behavior in 2.0.3. Next, how can we can Serif to consider fixing this so that we the end users have absolute control as to where we place and size our tool panels. I am not referring to the Studio Panels, where we can add tool panels and customization. I am talking about the tool panel that pops up when doing File >> New or View >> Guides. Do you see that? No matter where you position and/or resize, the application doesn't remember. It always defaults to center-of-screen.
  7. Hello, I’m trying to prepare a file on Publisher for Ingram Spark and something bizarre is happening with the color space. I create a document in Grayscale (text colour set to Gray 0), yet when I try to export, the Preflight checker objects and says that the “document color profile is not suitable for PDF/X”. Now, Ingram absolutely requires their book text in Grayscale, and exported as PDF/X-1a:2001 or PDF/X-3:2002 (apparently PDF/X-1a:2003 or PDF/X-3:2003 should also work), so I forge ahead and export it as a PDF/X anyway. However, when I reopen the PDF as Grayscale in Affinity, the book text is now Gray 5. When I reopen it without specifying to open as Grayscale, it opens as CMYK, and the black of the body text is all over the shop! C72, M67,Y67, K86. So what is going on? Please note I’ve had to learn this software rather swiftly and haphazardly, with no prior knowledge of anything digital/graphics related. I work in ink and dip pen, usually, so pardon any obvious idiocy I’m committing here. On Ingram’s very helpful File Creation Guide, they note: “SPOT COLORS/ICC PROFILES: Please do not include Spot colors or ICC profiles in your file as these can produce unexpected results during processing. ICC profiles applied to 100% black text often convert to a shade or percentage of gray (less than 100% black). This will result in text in your proof that is not solid black. If text is intended to appear as solid black, including Spot colors or ICC profiles can cause delays in receiving a correct proof.” So this could be the problem. But in the export settings, the option to set the colour space or ICC profile is blank, and the box for “Embed ICC profile” is already ticked and grayed out, so I can’t alter it. I bodged up a quick file to show as an example, here: My text very much needs to be 100% solid black, so any advice would be greatly appreciated! I've searched the forum for anything Ingram Spark related, and have found some very helpful threads, but nothing dealing with this issue, yet. It might be a bug? I also have a related question about this bit of their specifications: “Resolution: 600 ppi for 1-bit black & white line art / 300 ppi for 8-bit grayscale continuous tone images” Color Space: Grayscale LPI (lines per inch): 175 visual (Where do I set this?) Preferred file format: PDF (.pdf) PDF producer: PDF/X-1a:2001 or PDF/X-3:2002” I presume by ppi they mean DPI also, so for a book containing both text AND black ink drawings, do I set the document up at 600 DPI?? And then untick the “Downsample images” box during export? Sorry for so much floundering! Cheers for any help! Valliard
  8. I’m suddenly getting this kind of error when exporting to PDF. This didn’t happen in my previous exports. Used the same fonts as I did before. Had no errors in preflight aside from spelling corrections and bleed warnings before exporting. Weird thing is that this error does not happen when I’m using the Print option.
  9. Publisher is crashing a lot. I understand how a crash works. What I wanna know is how I give you as much information as you need to understand where my crashes are coming from and how to stop them in Publisher 2.0.1 or 2.1. Dassit. I'm on Mac Ventura 13.1.0
  10. I had Affinity Photo, Designer and Publisher 1 set in Window 10 Pro Graphics Settings to use High Performance. Now I have the three V2 applications, the browse button in Windows 10 Pro's Graphic settings seems unable to find the new versions. Is it no longer possible to force high graphics performance with the new version, or is there a work around?
  11. I have tried everything to toggle on the baseline grid and it wont show up even after adjusting the parameters on the top of the screen. The baseline grid settings don't show up like the other grid settings menu on the right side of the page. Any help would be appreciated!
