  1. Windows 10 Home 1809, Publisher 1.7.0.249. When I drag the double-arrow tag at the bottom-left or top-right of a table (I don't know the proper name and can't find it in the Help) it doesn't always produce a new column or row. See the attached GIF where dragging from the tab the first time usually creates a new row/column but after that it only starts to create rows/columns once I've dragged to two row/column heights/widths. Not a major issue, just thought I'd mention it.
  2. Windows 10 Home 1809, Publisher 1.7.0.249. Have a look at the attached GIF where: * I create a new document - custom-sized at 2x3 inches (purely for demonstration purposes); * Page Preset says "Custom", as expected; * I close that document; * I go to create a new document; * Page Preset now says "A4" but the size is still 2x3 inches; * I re-select A4 from the Page Presets but the size is still 2x3 inches; * I select a different Document Units but the size is still the equivalent of 2x3 inches; * To get what I want, I have to select a different Page Preset, then select the Page Preset that I actually want, and then re-select the Document Units that I want. I don't think this is working the way it should be. If the Page Preset says A4 then I should be able to assume that the page size is whatever A4 is in whatever the Units is set to. I shouldn't need to check that the Width and Height are correct for the preset. (This would be especially difficult to spot if the page size was close to - but not exactly the same as - the preset size.) In other words, if the page size is not exactly equivalent to an existing preset then the preset should be "Custom". I only found this issue after I thought the Zoom function wasn't working when I zoomed a recently-made - apparently A4-sized - document to 100% and found it was way smaller than it should be. (A 2x3 inches document zoomed-to-fit looks exactly the same on-screen as a 8x12 inches document zoomed-to-fit.) When I created the document I noticed that the Preset said A4 - so I assumed that was correct - but the page size was actually 5.8x7.9 inches (from a previous document). This isn't a huge problem while the software is still in beta - we're not supposed to be creating "real" document with it - but I would say it could be a really big issue if someone creates a magazine or a book only to find out, at the very end, that they've done it all on wrongly-sized pages. (Imagine creating a 100-page magazine and only finding out at the print shop that you've used a 230mm page width instead of the 210mm you needed.)
  3. Hello, I've noticed another problem in Affinity Publisher – or two: 1. If I set links, the links are not always available in a pdf file created from the afpub-file. 2. If I crate a list with bullets and give the first word(s) another color (e.g. it is a link), the bullet gets the same color. I did not find a way to change the color of the bullet independently of the text. Is this a bug or is there a way to manage it? Thanks again!
  4. Windows 10 Home 1809, Publisher 1.7.0.206. Unfortunately I can't give you a simple sample document that shows the problem as it doesn't always happen but sometimes when I: * have a master page with column guides; * then apply that master to a spread; * then create another master with 'normal' guides; * then apply that new master to the spread - as well as the other one, not replacing - the column guides sometimes: A. go invisible (often) while 'normal' guides are still visible; B. become visible again when I randomly drag the masters in the layout studio (infrequently works as a fix); C. get deleted all together; D. get renumbered to a much higher number, e.g. from 4 columns to 48 columns (only seen that once so far). Again, sorry I can't supply an example document. Hopefully I've given enough info' to start a small investigation.
  5. Hi, there are a lot of cases where we have to do repetitive tasks like: remove spaces before interpunction signs; remove spaces at the end of paragraph; replace 3 dots with elipses... ...... So, I think it would be very useful if you add a feature that will save all these multi Find/Replace settings for future use. They must run in a loop until all replaces are done. Not to stop at the end of the file so we need to restart it over and over until it shows that there are 0 replacements. Something like it is shown on the picture I attached.
  6. Windows 10 Home 1809, Publisher 1.7.0.249. Note: This issue also applies to Columns. When I select multiple rows on a table and choose "Delete Row(s)" from the little drop-down arrow menu - on any row - only one row is deleted. However, if I right-click with multiple rows selected and choose "Delete Row(s)" from the contextual menu then the correct number of rows is deleted. I think both methods should do the same thing, which is to delete all of the selected rows, otherwise the "(s)" suffix is confusing. P.S. It would also be nice to be able to insert multiple rows/columns but that's maybe something for separate request.
  7. Hello everyone, I am using Publisher for Mac on the latest Beta. I created a project with 5 pages, using only the master page tool and inserting some images and writing text in a custom font. When I wanted to export it as PDF, Publisher first said there were overflowing text frames, although I couldn't spot any, and then started exporting but eventually stopped giving only a vague message. Can someone tell me why it does so and how to fix it? Thank you in advance!
  8. HI - Am trying publisher for our village magazine. Is there any way of getting the pointer to revert back to the move/select tool after creating or editing a text box? At the moment it leaves it in text box mode so I try to select something else and it creates a box. It's annoying that I have to remember to select the move tool everytime. IN pageplus this wasn't an issue. Any help appreciated. Thanks
  9. Hello, The new Publisher is really impressive. Due to new coding I've rebuilt my base template of a 6 page circular with great ease, but I noticed one feature I use every month is missing. In my monthly circulars I create with PP9 requires the process of removing the backgrounds of maybe 75 to 100 images per circular (a very easy process with PP9). Then some of these items can be used again in later issues, but any new products need this feature. Due to new coding is the plan for removing Image Background going to be done in Photo or implemented in to Publisher? Image editing isn't a problem, but over the last 4 years my product Image data base is about 2,650 images. Thanks, -Kevin
  10. Hello! I have been using Affinity Publisher for the past week to create a brochure. I used Affinity Publisher for all of the text and used Affinity Designer for all of the images. In Designer I created 8 dartboards, 1 for each page. In Publisher, added a picture frame to each page. I then select which artboard/page I want for the background in the booklet. When I make changes in Designer, I open Resource Manger and update all of the images. (Hopefully this will changed to happen automatically). However, when I do so, it reverts each background/picture frame to the first artboard in the Designer file. I then have to go back through each page in Publisher and tell it which page/artboard to pull from Designer. Am I doing something wrong or is this a bug? Thanks!

  12. Hi, please, add comtrol points to the "Rectangle" and "Elipse" shapes to get even more control. Beside rounding corners on the rectangle with a control point (no need of extra "rounded rectangle" tool) we could do the following: draw any kind of shape; make any number of segments with additional control point; control the length of the segments with another control point; now we can convert to curve this object and add different types of arrows (when they will be available) on the each end of the curve (or on the both) and/or; we can apply any type of stroke (whey they will be available, of course) not only of this kind of curves, but on the lines too.
  13. Hi there! Most probably this has been reported already, nevertheless: when changing margins on a single spread the respective input fields are called "inner margin" and "outer margin" instead of "left margin" or "right margin". Nothing serious, still... Best, Volker
  14. Hello People. Select a Layer or an object from Photo or Designer and paste it into Publisher actually kills the possibility to Zoom in/out using the trackpad. Bug ? Can anyone reproduce this and see if it does the same thing? If it's a bug could it get fixed ? Functionalities shouldn't stop working after a simple copy paste Blessings!
  15. Hi, maybe someone can help me, and in all likelihood this is a usewr error as opposed to a program error, but' I'm noticing that letters after an apostrophe are being capitalised, i.e. I'M as opposed to I'm. Does anyone have a fix for this at all? Thanks in advance. Ben
  16. I have been trying to update to the latest version of Publisher 1.7.0 but with no luck. It just does nothing. i have also tried uninstalling and downloading this version again it does nothing. Does not install. Been fine up to now. Ideas?
  17. Publisher 1.7.0.238. It would be useful to a lot of users if the "Special characters and glyphs" page of the Help could give: * what each character looks like (if possible); * a short explanation of what it does, or what it can/should be used for; * a good visual example of where it has been used. Some characters are fairly self-explanatory - "Page Number", "Copyright", etc. - but some, such as (but not limited to) "Soft Hyphen", "Sixth Space", "Zero-Width Non-Joiner" and "Punctuation Space" are meaningless to people without a good DTP/printing background. I'm sure there are lots of explanations around the web but it would be nice if users didn't have to search for them. Obviously the Help isn't finished yet, but it would be a shame if this sort of useful information was omitted.
  18. Hello People Hello teams. I know you are busy with top notch stuff but it seems like you have forgotten to add the Close All into Affinity Publisher. Yet if I have more than one project file open I can't close them all at once but need to close one by one. This is good but can get anoying if I have 15 tab to close. I've noticed there is no Close All implemented into the recent beta of APhoto and ADesigner so... maybe it is time to correct it or to explain the philosophy behind such choice (if it one and if there is a philosophy) Note that projects are often more about compositions with objects copied from many sources and when finished (we often leave tabs open just in case) then comes the time to close the software in a non brutal way (the brutal way often leads to crash or bugs) So please implement that and tweak it more than what it should be. Blessings
  19. Hi, I'd like to be able to set document properties, such Author, title, copyright info etc. and insert these via field code, so to not make errors from manual updating this type of information.
  20. Windows 10 Home 1809, Publisher 1.7.0.227. Today I opened a document that I had been playing around with for a few days and noticed that it had opened with a [Read Only] suffix on the file name. I've had a look around on the forum and a few people have had similar - mostly one-off - issues, and with Designer and Photo too. I didn't notice any message about this when I saved the document before it went to Read Only. Publisher hadn't crashed while I've been using the document. There are no external images or anything like that in the document. There's no message when I open the document, it just opens with a [Read Only] suffix on the file name. The document was created with build 227 and it's been sitting on my local drive since then in my Desktop and then Documents folders (so no weird security issues there, I hope). However, when I closed Publisher, launched it again, and went to open the document I got a message saying that there was a recovery document available for it (which had never happened on opening the document before). I told Publisher that I didn't want to open the recovery document and the original document loaded, now without the Read Only status. Could this - a recovery document being available - be part of the reason why people's documents sometimes get a Read Only status?
  21. Windows 10 Home 1809, Publisher 1.7.0.227. I have a Facing spread with pages of dimension 5.8x7.9in with margins of 0.75in inner, 1.0in outer, 0.75in top, 0.8in bottom (see attached image). This means that the outside (left) margin of the left-hand page equals that of the outside (right) margin of the right-hand page and both outer margins are larger than the two inner margins. That's all well and good. However, when I come to create a left- or right-hand Single master page - sometimes I don't want one side of the spread to have what's on the related master page 'side' - I can't seem to find a way of telling Publisher that the master page is either left- or right-handed and always get the margins for a left-handed page. Is there any way I can correctly set the margins for each left/right single master page without doing it manually? Or, is there a better way I should be doing this? I have found that I can create a Facing master page and then apply that to each 'side' of a spread but that puts me in the position sometimes where, for pages that use both left- and right-hand sides of the master, I now have a duplicated master page, which looks a little confusing. I should really remove the existing 'side' of the master page and apply the whole facing master page but I might forget. The attached AFPUB file shows both the left/right single page margin issue - master pages Left Single and Right Single - and the duplicated master page 'issue'. It also shows that the margins on the Right Single master are not visible on the pages that master has been applied to, even when you switch off the other master pages applied to the spread. Basically, I have too many margins - on the different masters - and don't know which will be applied (I think that might be a separate issue). master-page-sides.afpub
  22. Windows 10 Home 1809, Publisher 1.7.0.227. There is a little "Toggle Master View" button on the status bar - to the right of the "Last Spread" button - which seems to toggle between the page/spread currently being edited and the last master page/spread that was edited. Is this the expected behaviour of this button and, if so, is this the full extent of its behaviour or does it also do something else? With the introduction of the new master page editing functions - Edit Linked etc. - it seems a little bit redundant. Also, if you are editing a page/spread that doesn't use the last master page/spread that was edited then its function is fairly irrelevant as you will toggle between two unrelated things. I only ask as I can't find anything in the Help about it, so I just wondered.
  23. Windows 10 Home 1809, Publisher 1.7.0.227. The Navigator studio has some - undocumented, as far as I can tell - presets (little bars under the slider) that you can click on to quickly change the zoom level but they need pixel-perfect clicking to be able to use them. At present, the mouse pointer has to be exactly on the tiny one/two-pixel-wide bar. I think it would be better if there was a leeway of, say, three/four pixels to either side, or the bar could be made thicker with a correspondingly larger 'hitbox'.
  24. Hi, please, add these 2 features into Publisher: columns 1.png The first one should simulate columns with guidelines on master pages. columns 2.png For the second one, please add "Gutter Width" beside "Columns" on the Context Toolbar.
  25. I can no longer use the last copy of Publisher. I've been trying to download and open version 1.7.1.277 but it won't install and open.
