  1. 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
  2. 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?
  3. 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..."?
  4. Hi, I used in document a colour, the same in several obejcts. I would like to replace this colour with another one with "one click". I made this colour (old) as global and edited it but objects in my document don't change. Could you explain me how to do it, step by step?
  5. Hardware: MacBook Pro, Retina, 13-inch, Late 2013 OS: 10.14.5 Steps: I open a document in Affinity Publisher, add a photo frame to an existing master page, resize and move it, attempt to save the document and the software crashes. Over and over. Attached is the crash report. I'm using a trial version of Publisher and was happy with it until this happened. crash.txt Edit: This also happens when I duplicate the master page, edit it and attempt to save the document. Edit: Publisher also crashes when I open Publisher and attempt to rename a master page. Publisher was working fine last night. I restarted my laptop this morning and it hasn't worked since. Edit: I deleted some duplicated asset photo categories and was able to save the file. I then selected a master page, moved a text box and it crashed. I am attaching the most recent crash report, as well. crash 2.txt Edit: Changed title to remove reference to saving as it crashes now whenever. affinity_memoirs.afpub
  6. See screenshot. Why on Earth has it suddenly started snapping on a weird axis? Been working on this document a while now and it's just started doing it. Any help would be much appreciated! Sam
  7. How do I resize my layers panel vertically. I can make it wider by pulling on the corners but I can't get it to go vertically.
  8. Saving my document either takes 10 seconds or 10 minutes. When it takes 10 minutes, my laptop gets extremely slow and laggy and I can barely do anything or type. In the same document, a save might take 10 seconds. Othertimes in the same document, a save might take 10 minutes or longer. On the long saves, the progress bar is empty until it starts moving and then its the normal 10 seconds (or so). Using 1.7.2. This never happened in 1.7.1 (it crashed saving sometimes and just disappeared, but when saving worked it was always 10-30 seconds, etc.)
  9. In the View menu on the Tool Bar "Preview Mode" is shown as Control + W, but nothing happens and my MacBook makes that 'boop' noise that it does when no action can be completed at this time. Am I pushing the wrong keys, or is this a bug?
  10. Please, add "Baseline Grid" in "Leading" together with "Exactly", "Multiple", "At Least"... This way body text will be linked with baseline grid and will follow its changes smoothly without jumpings. In this case "Align to Baseline Grid" will be no more needed.
  11. Hello, when I'm creating the TOC the page numbers are not there. What I'm missing? Thanks Mike Publisher
  12. I've been trying to learn how to use Publisher I'm copying a menu re-creating it in Publisher using CYMK but since I couldn't get the some colours using CYMK I used HSL instead. Does it make a difference when it comes to exporting and printing. I will export as CYMK and PDF. Excuse my ignorance but still learning the program. Tri-Fold Menu.afpub
  13. How to delete a first page in Publisher without re-flowing whole document? Or, how do I make it spread instead of a single page? When I started a project, I made a mistake of creating a cover as single page, not spread. Now, I need to create a spread for cover instead of a single page. Kinda stuck…
  14. When modifying hte opacity of a colour, the swatch/round/rectangle that shows the colour should display the colour at 100%, not lighter (colour panel) or darker (gradient panel).
  15. We can modify a global colour from the tint panel, but this way, the swatch color match the tint percentage instead of the 100% new global colour.
  16. Hello - I'm on an iMac Running OS X 10.9.5 with 12Gb RAM and a 2.5Ghz Processor. Bought Publisher recently however it crashed every time I send something to print (and sometime when I import a PDF). The crash report indicates something is wrong in so far as it says "error for object 0x608000c53230: Heap corruption detected, free list canary is damaged." Can anyone translate or advise please. Screen shot of page one of crash report attached.Thank you in anticipation.
  17. Windows 10 Home 1903, Publisher Watch the attached GIF. The right-hand side of the canvas is overlaying the panels, and the Pages/Assets panels cannot be seen. This is the only time I have seen this so it could be a total one-off. I’ve no idea if switching Personas has anything to do with it but it was something I was doing often. I’ll leave the document open in Publisher as long as I can (maybe next two hours) in case anyone needs me to do any live checking.
  18. Hi, Manual rotation of the object (with handle) does not recognize choosen rotation reference point in Transform panel. It always rotate it from center.
  19. Greetings everyone! Urgently need your help. Publisher crushes every time I'm trying to save the document, which I need to be done as sooner as possible. Re-creating it from scratch doesn't help — the same error. I've got the last available version, going to Photo or Design and saving there — the same :( I also tried Beta Publisher — nothing helps. Text file with error message attached, hope that might help. Thank you. Publisher Error.rtf
  20. I am completely new to Publisher, and would appreciate advice on some basic questions. Last year I made my first photobook using one of the online services, and I was not happy with the online process, the overall sharpness and quality of the final product. Therefore, I got Publisher, in order to have more control of the design. The questions are: (1) Is there a tutorial specifically for creating photobooks ? (2) Any recommendation for a print house in US ( West Coast ) ? (3) Some print houses publish recommendations for print-ready PDFs, like: https://www.blurb.com/make/pdf_to_book/booksize_calculator#safe-text with details such as “trim line” , “bleed” , “inset for margins”. I am not sure how would I translate these into Publisher options ? (4) My workflow is: (a) Scan a slide. (b) Post-proceesing in Affinity Photo ( sharpening, etc… ) (c) Layout in Publisher In (a), I scan at full resolution ( 400dpi ), and save as TIFF, for example 3840 x 5760 pixels. In (b), for image resizing, I select File/Export/JPEG/“Bilinear”/Quality=100, and new size, for example 1920 x 2880. In (c), I arrange JPGs into book layout. Any comments/suggestons/recommendations on the above workflow ? (5) So in Publisher, I can also do resizing by manually stretching the TIFF. But this manual resizing does not specify type of resampling, so I am thinking that the resampling in (b) is of better quality - is this correct ? (6) In (b), I start with an original image at convenient size ( 3840 x 5760 ), so resampling at factors 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 produces images at target sizes which are exactly proportional: 3840 x 5760 / 2.0 1920 x 2880 3840 x 5760 / 3.0 1280 x 1920 …etc... So if in Publisher, I do manual resizing, the resizing factor would most likely include a fractional part, say 2.17. The question is: does resizing by an integer factor ( 2x ) produce better ( meaning sharper ) image compared to resizing by a real factor ( 2.17x ) ? Sorry for such a basic questions, and thanks for all comments and feedback, regards, mshumski
  21. I have a large document and a number of swatches that I use. I have the "palette" set to the document I'm working on. The palette is large with some 40+ swatches (some of which I don't recognize as having used them). I would like to know how to force AFPUB to save the swatches I have used over time on the document. I keep running into a missing swatch (where one object stroke or fill has that color, and I'd like to copy that color, but that swatch is not shown in the list of swatches). This forces me to use the HSL codes to manually re-create the swatch. However, eventually, that or another swatch won't be in the list when I need it. I suspect user knowledge is the problem, not necessarily a bug.
  22. Hello, I have the whole Affinity suite and my computer, but my question is this... One of the main features of Publisher was the integration of Designer and Photo inside. From there I can edit my illustrations or retouch some photography. That means that if I only get publisher, would I have the whole suite? Or wouldn't they work if I don't have AP and AD installed? Actually Publisher doesn't open an instance of AD or AP when I want to edit something, but does it inside his own App. I would like to understand if the App depends on the installation of the other two. Thank you very much.
  23. 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!
  24. I have noticed perhaps a significant issue in both Designer 1.7.2 and Publisher 1.72 after loading Affinity Photo 1.7.2 Images in either app. Designer and Publisher both crash when a <Print> command is entered. I have attached macOS 10.14.6 (18G95) error reports and uploaded them to Apple. I have been forced to export from Photo to a .png or .jpg format for the 2 apps to work properly. Please advise ASAP as it is much better to have a Designer + Publisher + Photo workflow rather than being forced through an extra stage of exporting .afphoto images. Many thanks amcd Publisher Crash on Print.rtf Designer Crash on Print.rtf
  25. Hello. I searched for delayed typing and couldn't see any other postings in 3 pages. I'm just starting to learn Publisher and I noticed that when I type there is a large delay in the text coming out and I can't record with OBS to show. I have to type and wait for the letters to display for about 3 to 5 seconds after I type them. I only have been doing a few words at a time with the delay and it is severely slowing me down. My document isn't complicated and I only have a single image. I have to wait about five seconds for this to finish typing itself out: "This sentence takes about five seconds to fill in after I stop typing." I noticed that Publisher and Photo use a very large percent of CPU even when they were both minimized and hadn't been used in a few minutes, and Publisher was the same once when I had it open but wasn't interacting with it. I should have plenty of horsepower, and haven't installed any fonts yet. Thank you for your help. System: Dell XPS 15 9570, Windows 10 Pro v10.0.17134 Build 17134, Core i& 8750H, 32GB RAM
