  1. Hello, I am trying to design a photo book using Affinity Publisher. I have a csv with the path to the photos, captions, titles, city, date, etc. I used the Data merge layout tool to place a single picture frame and two text frames. The layout accommodated landscape pictures well, but not portrait pictures. After merging the data, I made a master page that works better with the portrait pictures. I made sure that the layer names match, and figured that I could utilized the smart master pages to apply the new layout to the pages containing the portrait pictures. Well, when I drag and drop the new master pages, the layout isn't applied to the existing content. Instead, new frames are added to the pages without modifying the page content. Am I missing something? Thanks in advance
  2. I have a single page master with 3 Picture Frames labeled Picture 1, Picture 2, Picture 3. I applied the master to a single page containing 3 images labeled Picture 1, Picture 2, Picture 3. ISSUE - The page is not smart updating. The frames from the master are not being populated by the images of the same name. I'm trying to follow this tutorial - https://affinity.serif.com/en-us/tutorials/publisher/desktop/video/390003719/ I've tried doing this in 1.8 and 1.8.2 Beta. I'll appreciate any guidance that can be provided.
