  1. I can’t help thinking that Publisher is missing a huge market segment if nothing else if it doesn’t also include ebook production. it already does excellent pdf creation, and a number of other formats, but not true ebook production as Vellum does. Just a thought. Quote ”Created with usability and elegance in mind, Vellum is a fantastic software for creating Apple-, Kobo- and Amazon-approved ebooks and POD books with one click. While there are other, much cheaper software solutions to do this for you, some of them even listed in this guide, Vellum is unique: it creates not only professional but beautiful text-centric ebooks. If your goal is to create a book as elegant as a Penguin edition, Vellum can be your choice. The creators took care of everything: simple to use, efficiently imports from Word, and easy to change things even after the epub export.”
  2. Not sure if this is mentioned before by someone (couldn't find one on the forum): Using Publisher 1.7.0.376 beta and dragging the Pages-tab is veeeery slow and seems to take a looooot of power for some reason. So there is a huge delay in mouse-movement and the actual sizing of the width of the panel. Unfortunately the screen-recording isn't very hi-framerate, which normally is the case when recording with OBS here. So it looks like Publisher is really taking some performance away from the rest of the running software (like OBS here) just to scale this panel? veeeeery slow movement (even seems to hold the screenrecording from recording fluently): move-panel-delays.mp4
  3. So, I just got the email about the Publisher Beta coming to an end soon and the generous 30% discount I can take advantage of, but I need some clarity. - Are Affinity products giving free updates for life (as in "Life of the product" and all future versions) or free updates until the next major release (as in free updates for version 1.X.X.XXX but not for version 2.X.X.XXX)? I raise this question because your email about Affinity Publisher seems to be the latter.
  4. During configuration of shortcuts to use a Wacom dial to rotate canvas I found this issue: * In the settings shortcuts panel both left and right Alt-keys on the keyboard are displayed as 'Alt', so there is no way to see the difference between the two * But the actual keyboard shortcut is in reality indeed bound to the left OR the right Alt key. Looking in the interface it looks like both 'Rotate Left' and 'Rotate Right' are bound to the same shortcut (Alt+2), but in fact the first one is bound to AltLeft-2 and the second to AltRight+2. Affinity Photo knows this, because it doesn't show warning symbols to indicate a keyboard shortcut is already in use (it shows the regular clear-buttons): This is confusing and error-prone. It would be better if the interface shows AltRight and AltLeft instead for the alt-keys OR the software should treat both ALT-keys as the same (which I personally prefer and would expect). (I posted this in the Photo AND Designer bug forums too, because it's happening in all three programs. It's probably the same codebase, but just to be shure posted this in all three bug-forums)
  5. Non Breaking Space funcition works incorrect. The letter "s" should be attached (with space) to the next line word... Not divided by dash.
  6. The two buttons for Photo and Designer are there and I was wondering if on release of Publisher if they work. I have been curious about the integration. I know it's only days away and I'll know then, but my curiosity is getting the best of me!
  7. do you have to uninstall the beta
  8. Linking an image instead of embedding it, would be useful if you're working on different documents with the same file, i.e. a logo in a design phase. So if you change that logo it will be respected in every file it is linked. Besides that it doesn't increase your Designer file, that could be crucial if you're working with large files and make a lot of versions / copies of your Designer file. I think it's like the new version of the Photoshop Smartobjects (CC version). Would be great if this makes sense to you too and isn't too hard to implement. Thanks!
  9. A Publisher document that I have been working on for some time now has suddenly decided to crash (close actually) for no apparent reason whilst simply scrolling through the document. This does not happened with any other publication I have created. This morning as I began this report, a new Beta version became available (1.7.0.384) which I uploaded and installed. I opened this document with the new version and just scrolled down the pages, nothing more, and sure enough it crashed also. I have previously opened this publication by itself (nothing else running on my PC) to see if other programs may have been affecting it, but it still crashed. It has done this numerous times. On re-starting the application if there were unsaved edits, the document recovery message appears allowing me to save again to lock in those edits. However the application crashed when I scrolled down a couple of pages. The only thing different about this publication to others that I have created is that this one uses blank picture frames as place-holders for images I have yet to acquire. I'm not sure that this has anything to do with the problem, its just an observation. Other documents continue to work just fine. I am using an Acer Aspire 5471 laptop running Windows 7 version 6.01 (Build 701 Service Pack 1). I have enclosed a copy of the document for review. WASS History Booklet.afpub
  10. Hi there, I tried using Publisher to search for whole sentences in a long document (168 pages). Is that even possible? Seems to me it dosen't work (Beta 337) Best regards, Puck
  11. Just trying to figure out what is it exactly used for! I know about designer and photo but I never used indesign from adobe so I don’t know what affinity publisher is about and what exactly you can do with it. My guess it is like dream weaver where you build websites with. Any information clearly breaking down this program is much appreciated.
  12. ...since I jump between Windows and Mac all day, and have purchased Designer and Photo for both. I also tested Publisher on both OSes, as well. I might actually need to request a refund for Publisher and wait for a holiday sale since I need the 30% discount in order to afford it for both OSes.
  13. Hi there! When changing fonts without using styles I often encounter problems: The context menu doesn't update once I continue editing. Please have a look at the video. The problem is not limited to Arial - and it occurs with new and old documents. Additionally the drop-down-menu for the font seems to be hidden by the master/pages panel one in a while. Cheers, Volker Apub-376-text-editing.mp4
  14. I know it's still early days with Affinity Publisher still being in beta for desktop at the time of writing, but out of sheer curiosity, are their intentions to release Publisher for iPad? I know there won't be any timeline or firm plan, but is it something you're thinking about?
  15. Hi Since the most recent update when i try and print Publisher is just crashing and not actually sending anything to the printer. I have attached a video of the error to show the process. Thanks Clyall90 Printing_Crash.swf
  16. Is it possible to do drop shadows of text in Publisher? I select the text layer and fx but can only blur the text.
  17. Dear Affinity Users and Developers We’re just in the process of evaluating Affinity Publisher (tested with 1.7.0.305 and 1.7.0.312) and we’ve come upon a problem with the PDF/X export: In our workflow our print PDF files are checked in Adobe Acrobat against the preflight profile PDFX-ready Sheetfed Offset Classic HQ V1.5. Among other things this profile checks the MD5 checksums of the used ICC profile against a pre-defined list of profiles known to be appropriate for offset printing. When exporting a PDF as PDF/X-1a with the ICC profile ISO Coated v2 300% (ECI) from Affinity Publisher the preflight returns this error: Looking at the preflight report in the section Output Intents I noticed a difference between a PDF exported from InDesign and Affinity Publisher: The Output Intent is stated as ISO Coated v2 300% (ECI) for the InDesign-PDF and as ISO Coated v2 300% (ECI) (Custom) for Affinity Publisher The Color Management Module had a value of HDM (InDesign) and lcms (Affinity Publisher). Primäre Zielplattform (in English probably: Primary Target Platform): empty (InDesign) and Apple Computer, Inc. (APPL) (Affinity Publisher) Profil erstellt mit (in English probably: Profile created with): Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG (HDM ) (InDesign) and lcms (Affinity Publisher) The other fields were the same in both files. So I suspected this to be the reason for the different MD5 checksums. But not being an expert on the ins and outs of PDFs and colour management I turned to HilfDirSelbst.ch where we discussed this (in German) in this thread. Olaf Drümmer of callas concluded (my translation): So the question is Is Affinity Publisher correct in changing the meta-data of the profile when writing the PDF file? And if so: Would PDFX-ready need to append their list of MD5 checksums to include those of profiles created with lcms? Any insights and suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Best phph
  18. Dual language flipped and rotated publication The finished publication would function like this: Read one language from one side (e.g. pages 1 - 10) and then flip the publication over, rotate it and read the publication in the second language. The last pages of both languages (pages 10 and 10) would meet in the middle - upside down to each other. This is a must for dual language brochures, company profiles, etc. if you don't want to include both languages on the same page. AFAIK, InDesign doesn't have this and requires an onerous InDesign to Acrobat-linked workflow. Huge fan of Photo and Designer and using Publisher beta now.
  19. Hey everyone! When opening Document, Resource Manager, selecting all files and setting them to linked, my document will still be at 109,3MB file size. In fact, before linking the unlinked images, the file had 108MB. So linking even increases file size by a small amount. The Resource Manager will show them as linked and Publisher will report errors when renaming a file. It just doesn't decrease file size. And even when Publisher cannot fint a file, it is still being displayed, instead of an error frame, which I would expect. Is this a known issue? It seems it shouldn't be since there is a tutorial on the website for this. I am using High Sierra. Best wishes, Shu
  20. When copying in png images the image is appearing with a black background. To resolve this I have to save the image and then import it as an image. It would be great if you could just copy in a PNG from the web or another source. Thanks Clyall90
  21. Hello, In a file which worked perfectly yesterday I have today some png pictures who appear blurred in the software and also when I export. Any idea of why ? Thank you for your help (I'm French sorry if my english is not perfect)
  22. Hi everyone! I’m relatively new to Publisher and I am pretty happy that it functions somewhat similar to InDesign, which I’m used to especially the pre-CC versions. So I've been trying to tweak the look of my title below that is in highlighted in green below. Is there any way to customize the highlight’s position in relation to the text currently? I haven’t found any such options or am I missing something? Any help is highly appreciated! Thanks all
  23. Hi there, I have multiple files and I want to join them together now. I can't copy and paste, or anything else. Merge files isn't possible or am I missing something? I work on different files so the software doesnt fill the ram to quickly (only 4gb). Now i want to join all the pages to create a single pdf and I don't know how to do it. Thanks edit: please change this to the discussion forum. Didn't notice that i posted on bugs.
  24.

  25. ¡Hola a todos! Tengo algunas dudas sobre el interlineado que M.Word interpreta con respecto a Affinity Publisher. Estos días he estado pasando algunos textos y he notado que cuando paso un texto a Afinidad, si coloco el interlineado doble, ocupa menos espacio que en Word. Pero el error lo he notado en todos los tipos de interlineado. Incluso en la intercalación simple es mucho más estrecho que en el editor de texto. ¿Tienes algún tipo de solución? He estado leyendo un hilo en caso de que viera alguna solución. Muchas gracias por la ayuda.
