  1. Hi, Whilst rearranging my pages in Publisher, two of them suddenly add all elements not black text become red. As I continued moving pages, 1 reverted back to normal. I had another change and then revert. However, I cannot get the original page to change back to how it should be. It reminds me of the red when refining, but only on my curves, images and shapes. Here is a sample. Green doughnut shape, blue pencil, blue curve in the shape of a two. Is this a glitch? Am I missing something? Thanks
  2. I just wanted to pass on my praise and thanx for creating Publisher (completing the trio - layout, vector & pixel) that most designers use each day). I can't imagine the amount of work that goes into creating a piece of software from scratch. But i appreciate it. And my 2 cents worth about making it being able to open InDesign files: I don't see the necessity that some people feel it is. InDesign couldn't open Quark files. You needed to buy a third-party plugin. Quark can't open InDesign files (last i checked). The design studio i worked for made the switch from Quark to InDesign some years ago and the transition was awkward at first for large jobs created in Quark that we then needed to edit/update in InDesign. But we simply started creating new files in InDesign from scratch sometimes, despite having the Quark file. So, i think if you're changing software, it's to be expected there's a bit of extra work to be done at first, but in end it's worth it...especially in this case, if it gets up Adobe's nose. :) My only request for Publisher in a future release is if you could have more than 2 pages facing each other. I create a brochure which is 3 x side-by-side A4 pages, double-sided, as a roll/Z fold. I output one PDF as spreads to go to the printer and one PDF as single A4 pages for online use. It's nice to be able to have a single file that will do both. Once again, thank you for creating Publisher, Designer and Photo.
  3. Is it possible in Publisher to 'grey-out' text below a defined point size, so that just a grey row is visible? Many thanks
  4. In Publisher each persona has it's own shortcuts, now when I'm exporting them what is included? All three sets of shortucts or maybe only those for currently configured persona? Same for import - say I've exported shortcuts from Designer. Now I want use them in Publisher's Designer. So I go to Shortcuts > Designer > Import will it work?
  5. How can Affinity Publisher recolor a placed 1 bit image? My first image shows how this is done in Adobe InDesign. You place in a BW Bitmap mode tiff, use the Direct Selection tool to grab the placed image inside the frame, and then apply any swatch to it. Bam, this works great for reusable graphics. These are 1200 ppi bitmap files. Old-School method. I tried the same approach in Affinity Publisher and it seems like it wants to work but it can't. I'm not sure if you can see it here but the 1 color graphic that I applied a green color to has a sort of green fringe around the edges where the zoom level is aliasing the view. But if you zoom in, each pixel still looks only black or white. Can this be done in Affinity Publisher yet? This is pretty important for a few workflows. This is how I separate silkscreen graphics before sending to my printer who wants a black bitmap for each screen. This is how many comic files are set up with the line art separated from the lower resolution color art. I use this for placed logos and graphics that need quick recoloring but aren't vectors.
  6. This doesn't happen on normal export to PDF. This doesn't happen on export to x-1 or x-4. This only happens on exporting to x-3 PDF to the best of my testing ability When you have an image background and then overlay a transparent image, the overlapping pixels become slightly miscolored. Not enough to jump out, but enough that if sent to a professional printer, it will be visible on the page. I've attached a quick af.pub file and a screenshot taken from my PDF viewer (chrome) of this afpub file exported to X-3 PDF standard. To recreate 1) Create af.pub 2) Find a solid color image (doesn't need to be solid color, but easier to see this way) 3) Place solid color image on master page 4) In page mode, place an image that has transparency (PNG, etc.) over the background image. 5) Export to x-3:PDF standard, open and look at the overlayed image transparent pixels pdf_transparency_miscoloration_x3.zip
  7. When I think of a magazine the front and back are printed on the same material, then page 1 is same as the last page and so on until it gets to the middle spread. How would you achieve this on Affinity Publisher? I've not used InDesign before either so I don't know how it works over there. Because at the moment in my head it would just print off each page separately and wouldn't work at all how it should.
  8. Hi, it would be nice to have a feature, as a shotcut, for swaping characters. Something like: place the cursor between "h" and "t" in the word "hte"; press the shortcut key; the word has chnaged to "the".
  9. I need to create a referral pad with a few hundred options - each of which require a large circle that can be filled in with pen/pencil. Some items will wrap (so, no circle on the second line) and some will be indented (so, the circle needs to move right, too). I'm sure I'm overthinking the solution - but, I've tried working with bullets and numbers to no avail. Any suggestions? Thanks. In the screenshot below, the circles were created using the eclipse tool (which I know is not the right way to do it!)
  10. [Last exception 2100 in PDF_clip]["Function must not be called in 'page' scope"] Error happens on both x1a and x3. X4 (and normal PDF) works fine. I believe I know the problem - transparent images. x4 supports transparent images, but x1a and x3 doesn't. I need to export to either x1 or x3 for my print-on-demand provider. Can we flatten/rasterize any transparent images with page background so we can have a x1 or x3 compliant PDF? I'm using PNG files with transparencies as linked resources. thanks
  11. I recently posted on the support forum, but there does not seem to be an option for this. So posting here now as a feature request. I would be super great if there a way to change the space or distance between the spreads/pages/pasteboard? Within InDesign preferences ( Preferences > Guides & Pasteboard > Pasteboard Options ) there is a way to set this. I can't seem to find this in Publisher. I always found this helpful because sometimes I don't want to see the other page and prefer to focus on the page I'm designing. Keep up the great work Affinity!
  12. I am using the whole Affinity suite at the moment and I am very impressed. However, the lack of basic document templates in Publisher seems a little strange. I am not looking at pre-populated designs. I refer to the basic, blank document templates as in the image below. Without templates, we wouldn't consider rolling out Publisher across the school for student use. We still use Seif Page Plus X9 with our students and the base templates here allow us to concentrate on the design and layout without spending valuable time reinventing the wheel every time we start a topic. Perhaps templates for Publisher are something worth considering? If Publisher could directly import Page Plus X9 documents this would solve the problem. Your thoughts...
  13. InDesign has the feature of Conditional Text, where pieces of text can be marked and assigned to a "Condition". Turning these "Conditions" on or off will make all assigned text fragments show or hide. A good description in the InDesign manual is here. This functionality is extremely helpful for instance in price lists where there are different prices for different markets. Why not use Layers? Because with Conditional Text all other text besides the conditional versions will stay the same: only one text version to maintain. I could not (yet) find anything like this in Publisher. Does it have this functionality? Is it considered for the future? Thanks for any input!
  14. Hi How do I centre a table on a page vertically. Mine starts at the left margin and leaves a small gap on the right side? Thanks
  15. I cannot select and apply a specific paragraph style from the Text Styles window. Insertion point is set in running text. I click different text styles and the paragraph restyles accordingly, except for ¶ Body +.
  16. I'm running Publisher v 1.7.1 on Mojave 10.14.5. Everything was working perfectly on Friday - but this morning my toolbar is missing. As you can see in the screenshot below, it is enabled. I tried "reseting" Publisher, but that didn't resolve the issue. Is there a preference or something that might need to be trashed?

  18. When I zoom in a current selection often wanders out of sight, beyond the window’s edges. Wish: selection’s center is centred in the window as soon as it’s falls over the window’s edge.
  19. Once I had a decoration that extended above the paragraph. When the paragraph is the first in a column, its decoration extends logically above top of the column. However, I’d like the whole decoration’s top and bottom to stay within the column’s top and bottom. How do I do thát?
  20. I built a table in another publisher document. I needed to pull that table from the old document (created on artboards) to a new one (created as spreads). The new document crashed after 300 seconds (during the autosave) and I chose to open the recovery, which had no edits done up to the attempted autosave. I re-embedded the table, adjusted the size of the table to fit into my smaller spread, and everything works fine until the program tries to autosave or until I attempt to save manually. I've tried: 1) Save As to rename the document 2) Deleting the table and everything associated with the table (paragraph and character styles, table formats, the table itself, content within the table's cells) 3) Deleting non-system fonts that have nothing to do with the project 4) Converting the table to curves 5) Opening the publisher file in Designer Persona Only 6) Splitting the table into sections 7) Clearing all contents and style of the table to default table settings 8) Restarting the computer 9) Saving the document to the desktop or another location My computer is a 30k workstation with plenty of ram, cpu and graphics processing. I'm exporting a crash report It seems I can no longer modify this file unless I manually copy all the content over to a clean document with the exception of the table itself and the spreads span over about 90 pages. 2fb92aa6-3692-4eee-8516-5cd1d8a016a2.dmp
  21. Hello, I found very frustrating problem in publisher ;/ What I did and what happend? I am creating a photo album with pictures. Each photo is placed in picture frame and under that, I placed a black rectangle with white stroke (to give a photo nice, white frame). When exporting to .tiff everythings fine. But I need to export it to pdf (I usually choose pdf x1). The white stroke disappears (even in basic preview in acrobat pro). When I choose pdf preset to "pdf for print", the white stroke appears, but when I open that file on proofing printer software/ print on digital printer/ offset printer (just prepress software or even desktop printer), the white dissapears. As I remember in beta I had a problem when I placed white text over photos in pdf (tiff was fine) (it disappeared in the same way). I'm attaching every steps described above + .afpub file. Are you working on that? white_problem.afpub
  22. Hello there! I use Affinity Publisher on both Windows and on MacOS, and, when using my 5K screen on my iMac 27” there’s no problem to have a lot of Studios open or attach to a group of Studios, but, on my 13.3” HP Spectre X360 laptop (although 4K screen) it’s less space to work on... It would be nice to have possibility to make an shortcut to toggle specific Studios, especially the big Text Frames Studio... Why can’t we make shortcuts to toggle Studion on/off? Otherwise, thanks for an incredible suite of software (Affinity Suite)!
  23. This is a nightmare. PDF export just mangles all the text - well not all of it, just most of it. Randomly it leaves bits ok even with exactly the same font, styles, colours, weights, and the same master objects applied - you can see in the screenshots one spread in the doc is ok and one is not (most aren;t) . Some headings are ok but body text is mashed. There's no logic to this, nothing consistent about why and how it fails. Publisher came out just in time for me to start these two jobs with a hard print deadline. After 2 - 3 days of arsing about trying to fix this problem after setting 120 pages, I thought I'd finally solved this by stopping using my FontBase font manager, removing all the Montserrat font versions and reinstalling them to system fonts and trying again for the upteenth time. So I started the other doc. But it's back again. The problem is, every time I do this reinstalling fonts process, the document seems to interpret the fonts as new fonts, substituting the old, then I have to go through and set everything again. Like hundreds of Latin names in italic in the body copy I will have to go through and manually do again and again, every time it happens. And many more issues besides will need to be addressed again. This is a real problem. I see someone else has it to - I commented on that thread days back but there's no response on there. This is Windows 10 Pro, Montserrat (Google font) - marked as fully embeddable. I tried turning off the subset option on exports dozens of times and it makes no difference. It's extended this job into days more than it should have been. I really like what you're trying to do with this suite of software but please please please get this sorted - people are trying to produce pro documents for print but we're falling at the last hurdle. It's pretty crashy too but the recovery so far has been reasonably good. Plenty of other niggles with things but the PDF export thing really really needs sorting though. Please can somebody look into this urgently?
  24. Working on a book, 30.1MB, text only. A few limited embedded vector files. Worked great til yesterday, now Publisher crashes on an attempt to save. Anyone have any ideas?
  25. Hello, I placed an image in a picture frame but now I want to remove it (not replace it). I searched for a while but couldn't find anything. Any suggestions? Thanks!
