  1. It would be great if the bulleting and numbering approach could include a multilevel functionality similar to word or InDesign when by pressing Tab or Shift+Tab takes you to the next sub level. Having to define the text style for each level is tedious, time consuming and not intuitive. Is this a functionality that will be rolled out soon or is there a way to accomplish this easily using the bullets and numbering tools?
  2. I'm trying to publish a paperback book on Amazon/KDP using Affinity Publisher. The problem is that half of the pages are missing when previewed on KDP. Per the KDP instructions, I created the AP document with "facing pages" layout (so margins and gutters are OK). My AP book contains 76 pages but the exported PDF only contains 39 pages. Page 1 in the PDF is OK but the remaining pages are "double-wides" -- each containing 2 "book pages". It looks like KDP is chopping off the right half of each PDF page so only the even-numbered (left-side) pages are left. I've contacted Amazon support but I'm guessing they're going to tell me to create a PDF with 76 pages -- i.e. one book page per PDF page. I've looked around the AP export options and don't see any way to do this. So, the question is, how do I export a 76-page "facing pages" document to a 76 page "single page" PDF? I hope this makes sense -- it's a little confusing. Thanks.
  3. Hello Affinity people! Is there a chance we could see larger file previews in Finder / Path Finder? As of this moment all Affinity files' previews are tiny compared to PDF, JPG and all the other types of files, for that matter. Talking about Spacebar previews. Please check screenshots. Thanks in advance! David
  4. Hello friends. Is there any way to make corners rounded in Publisher? I know that corners of some regular/default shapes of Publisher can be made rounded. But I'm talking about the corners of random shapes. Looking forward to your opinion. TIA!
  5. When I open an Affinity Publisher document (originally created on a PC) on my mac, I get a pop-up dialogue box informing me that a font is missing. Using the Font Manager I can see the font that's missing (in a list). However, when I press 'locate' Publisher does nothing. In the list it suggests an alternative to substitute but, unless I'm missing something obvious, there's no way actually to substitute it. After saving and reloading, the same pop-up box appears telling me about the missing font. All thoughts/suggestions gratefully received. Edward
  6. Hi, Was wondering if it is possible to place some vector art inside a table cell as a background to the cell text. I hope so. Thanks.
  7. My Assets panel is empty, and refuses to accept assets, in both Photo 1.7.2.471 and Publisher 1.7.2.471. It works okay in Designer 1.7.1.404. I exported Designer's, and imported them into Publisher. Publisher now lists the category, but doesn't give access to the assets.
  8. Hi, I know it was already improve once, but it's not enough. The overflow red dot (or triangle for flowing to another frame) is only visible depending of the height of the frame: if we zoom out to create and adjust a new frame, it disappears. And the level of zoom needed for it to appear can be important! For example, if I need to flow ±325 footnotes on 250 pages, needing sometimes only 1 line at the bottom, I'll have to zoom in/zoom out 500 times! Second bug with this: it's impossible to find overflow in small frames if the zoom level doesn't allow enough space between the blue nodes of a frame to display the red dot. Looking for overflow with a zoom of 270% on a document isn't a good workflow. While in text mode those indicators should be displayed, and perhaps bigger when zooming out, so it's easier to click on them. They should be shown with other tools too, but smaller.
  9. Ok so I need to understand if this is working as intended. I have a Frame Text Box on a normal page, I paste in my text and its more than my box. Ok no problem. I now shift click the little icon as shown below to create more pages with the same box until all text has shows on a page. Great I love it. Now If I create ANOTHER Frame Text box on the same original normal page, paste in the text which again overflows and SHIFT CLICK it ignores all the existing pages and creates a whole new set of pages with just this frame text box. Why does it not apply to the existing pages? Is there a command/keystroke I am missing to make it apply to existing pages? Thoughts?
  10. Hi Folks, one question: i exported a 2 page testfile pdf with pulisher. Even though the 2 pages have the same the content elements/type (cause i copied them), in the exported pdf the right/second page has sharp text, the left page on the other hand is pixelated. What i am doing wrong:-)? Greetings from Germany Jo 20190925_Broschuere_148x148_2TEST.afpub 20190925_Broschuere_148x148_2TEST.pdf
  11. HI All, I recently purchased all three programs and moved to Windows 10 OS. I have a new PC so I'm starting from scratch - installing fonts onto my system. I'm still using Adobe CS6 products while I transition to Affinity, I have a lot of print files (Magazines, Ads, Flyers etc.) which use specific fonts that I have to continue using so in order to move I have to be able to access the font files in Affinity. I have hundreds of fonts Truetype, Open Type and Postscript Type 1. The installed fonts all showed up in my Adobe Suite but not in Affinity? I use FontExpert to manage installs but I have also tried installing directly to Win10 fonts folder. The results are quite random. I get a different (Limited) selection of installed fonts each time I open a program - and never the full range of typeface options (Light, medium, regular, bold etc) Is there a setting I am missing to activate the installed fonts? Any solutions welcome? Thanks in advance
  12. Hi Has anyone else had issues with PDF imports? As you'll see from the screenshot below that the whole fonts and type have somehow changed while importing PDFs to publisher? Is there a fix around this? It's a basic part of what publishing software needs as saves a lot of work while trying to publish a magazine.
  13. Have we lost image opacity slider in 1.7.3 on MAC? When I select any image on the document the slider seems to.. well not be available to the tune of no actual slider handle?? It doesn't seem to matter if I select the picyure frame or the lower image layer? Rob
  14. So I'm creating an RSVP card that has a bleed, and eventually will be printed 3-up on 8.5x11" paper. In the past, with the software I'm used to, I create a master document of the RSVP card, with the bleed margins set. I then create a separate document for the 3-up, and place the master into this document 3 times. In this way, if changes are made to the master, the 3-up reflects those changes. When placing the master into the 3-up, the software gave me import options when placing the master, one of them being that I could crop to the bleed bounding box. After placing the master, I would create crop marks on the 3-up (which the software had scripts for doing). So I could use some advice as to how to replicate this workflow in Publisher, at least to some degree. In order to get crop marks in Publisher, it appears I have to export the master as a PDF. Which I've done. But when I import the PDF into my 3-up, it doesn't include the crop marks for some reason, even though I can see the crop marks when I open the PDF in Preview. I'm starting to think that I will have to forgo the ability to link to the master, and simply copy and paste the master into the 3-up. Not ideal, but that is the only way I seem to be able to include the bleed. And then I will need to build the drop marks by hand on the 3-up.
  15. Doing my first book layout with Publisher. I have a master page set up but no matter how I try to apply it to a page in the document nothing happens. I have to modify each individual page to have the changes applied. What am I missing?
  16. I have got all my software up to date and all version 1.7.3 - but the Studio Link isn't working consistently. When i am working in Publisher I can connect with Photos but I'm getting this message when i try to connect with Designer. Am I doing something wrong? thanks for your help, Chris
  17. Here is an example of an outer shadow and its settings applied to this arrow: Here is what it looks like after I export it: Maybe there's a PDF export setting that is removing it? Here are my PDF export settings:
  18. Hi, I installed Publisher on my Lenovo Thinkpad W520 and it starts ok. However, as soon as I click ok to open a new document, it crashs. The latest update 1.7.3.481 is installed. No idea whats wrong. Initially I had installed the beta version and hoped it would work when I purchase the official version. Thanks for your help
  19. Hi - how can you offer a publisher tool and then it is not possible to use Emojis. I have bought publisher to have free opportunities to create flyers, brochures or a book. Is there a way to change it in some settings? Thanks for fast reply Corina
  20. Hi, I'm completely new to Publisher and not at all at home in the publishing world. All I'm trying to do is make an invoice in Publisher but I'm running into a problem. The text alligns to the left but I'd like the numbers to allign on the comma, is that possible without using a lot of spaces? Thanks in advance!
  21. Hi friends. I'm curious to know why this warning is showing when exporting pdf files from Affinity Publisher? This is so disappointing. I don't want anything to be rasterised Is there any way to turn this option off? TIA!
  22. Hi, It's really usefull to use tints with global colours, but we miss the ability to add those tints to the swatches' palette. For now we need to use again the tint panel and choose a percentage, or copy-paste the style to have the same tint. If we add tints for a global colour from the menu, those tints aren't global, and aren't linked to the original colour: if we modify the global colour, the tints won't change accordingly.
  23. When reading/importing a designer file into Publisher, it would be intuitive to have the option to import artboards as pages. Currently the whole document is imported as a single page with multiple artboards. A work around is to create a PDF and load that as then the pages are correctly handled - however the text isn't handled quite correctly - odd letterspacing, justification etc... Just a thought. Regards, Mark
  24. Working on a workbook and I wanted to have a day countup / countdown I.e., day 35/330, day 34/329, day 35/328 35 could be done with sections and page number field however I am unsure how to get the 330 to properly “countdown” other than manually typing which I do not want to do as there’s too much possibility for human error. any thoughts?
  25. Hi, A "Picture Properties" could be upgraded with another field where the user could enter the DPI value under which the picture can't be resized and the rest of the frame (if bigger) would be empty. Why these properties don't work with pictures entered directly with "Place..."?
