  1. This problem has been around all through the Beta and now in the latest version 1.7.3. Mac OS X 10.13.6. It may well be an unavoidable problem due to its nature. If you are using a 2-page spread and you are using many "layers" of images and text on many pages (background image at 'back', text and picture frames in front of that, master page data with Section Names and Page #s, Section Names set for specific page ranges, etc.) then you can't just delete a single page and add it somewhere else without losing the registration of pages that follow the deletion and the addition. The deletion causes every page to move "up" changing the recto and verso pages to the opposite types and much more: Master Page data (left and right, left only, right only, none) - can shift to a master that is on the next page/prior page The "layers" of frames and pictures on a page will get jumbled (background image is at front instead of at back, often, hiding the text and photos beneath). This part has to be a "real" bug as the position of an object back-to-front on a page should never change because it has moved to a different side of a spread. I reported this specifically during Beta. Section naming can get shifted by one page. If you add in a page somewhere else, after deleting one, you still have the problems as they don't repair themselves. The way around this is to ONLY add or delete pages in sets of two. In my case, I wanted to take the first recto page, delete it and move it to the end of the document as a verso page. This shifted the entire document and then it exhibited the problems I outlined. Instead, I added a single page at the end (verso) then copied the first (recto) page to that last page. This left at the start of the document, in order, one recto followed by a 2-page spread. On that 2-page spread I cut the items from the recto (page 3) and copied them to the recto (page 1). This left a single 2-page spread (pages 2 and 3) entirely empty and I deleted those 2 pages without any of the problems creeping into the document. So, I just want to ask if it's possible to somehow ask AFPUB to be "smart" about that whole "deletion of single page" scenario - which would make the process much smoother, quicker, and easier. I think it would require internally reassigning the masters, sections, etc., as pages move up or down the spreads.
  2. I haven't tried this with Picture Frame Ellipse Tool. The scenario: 2-page spread with one 2-page background photo in a frame and several embedded photos inside Picture Frame Rectangles. I want some of the photos / frames to overlap so I move them into place and note that one frame (selected) is behind another. So I Arrange / Move Forward One. Nothing - the frame is still behind another. So I repeat Arrange / Move Forward One. Nothing. After several failed attempts to get the frame to move forward, I try to Arrange Move to Front. That works. The same happens when using Move Back One. Nothing appears to happen after several attempts and I must use Move to Back instead. The problem with that is that there is a framed background photo across the 2-page spread so the photo is moved behind that background and disappears. Then I have to go to great lengths to get things straight again since Move to Front is the only thing that will work visibly, I must, instead, deal with the second photo - Move to Front. My observation is that there are three layers of frames, then: the background, and two photos overlapped together. Basically you can move one photo to the back and it disappears, then you can move it forward ONE to become visible in front of the background. But moving forward one more time will not move the frame on top of the other smaller photo. It appears, then, that AFPUB thinks the two smaller photos are at the same layer since nothing happens. But Move to Front does work. My point in mentioning this is that the Move Forward One and Move Back one never seem to actually, reliably DO anything visible - I suspect that they are partially broken as I have see this problem over many months in beta and in the published version.
  3. I m a fairly new user of Affinity and still learning the many features of the program, but am enjoying the experience nonetheless. There is one area that is causing me some frustration. When I open a raw file (select, File., open and file that I have exported to Affinity specific folder), I can perform most editing functions from the options on the right panel. However, after watching I training video about using a layer and sharpening mask i went to open either "Layer" or "Filter" from pull down menu, but both options were not present. Without a file open, My menu shows from left to right: File, Edit, Text, Layer, Document, Select, Arrange, Filters, View, Window, Help. With a file open the Menu show: File, Edit, View, Window, Help. (see attached screen shot) Of course with the few options I am limited to what I can do. Any ideas? All options on Studio are checked and have been reset, but I understand they relate to the right panel anyway. Any help would be most welcome.
  4. Hey everybody, I am currently looking for the function to arrange file windows (or different views of a file) in Affinity Publisher. I know this feature was available in Photoshop, where I used it every day. Are there plans to add a similar feature to the Affinity Range? That would be great! In Photoshop there are the following arrangement options to choose from: Arrange → Cascade Arrange → Tile Arrange → Float in Window Arrange → Float All in Window Arrange → Consolidate All to Tabs If there's already a topic about this I'm sorry, I couldn't find it. Greetings MrDoodlezz

    Error arranging symbols order

    I'm trying to use symbols to create the scales for a Koi Fish, but I get heavy errors changing the order of the instances. If i send one Symbol to the background, all symbols are re-ordered arbitrary, sending all of them below or above the non symbol objects. after that, is nearly imposible to reorder any symbol, with buttons and commands becoming non-responsive. Also, the moved symbol does not goes to back but to a totally random place. Idem with sending to front. Add to this some rendering artifacts. Same objets used as a single group instead of a symbol works well. Stept to recreate: Create a new symbol duplicate the symbol multiple times (for example to create fish scales, overlaping) Select a front symbol and send it to back, or a back symbol and send to front get invaded with desperation.

  7. Keyboard Shortcuts in Win10 for Layer Arrange Funktion don't work! Those are the culprits: Ctrl+] Ctrl+Shift+] Ctrl+[ Ctrl+Shift+[
  8. 1.6.0.87 windows 10 arrange bug.afdesign
  9. Please add the option “optically” for arranging/aligning objects and texts optically. Not the easiest thing to add, but optical alignment of objects would be probably unique.
  10. The Auto Distribute options under Arrange panel is disabled. I am not sure if I am doing something wrong, or if this is a bug. How do I enable it? I am using the free trial v1.4 i believe on OS X 10.11.3. Kindly help.
  11. let's say I have three objects; object A, object B and object C. I want object A above object B, object B above object C and object C above object A in the layer. Is it possible to have circular layer instead of linear layer?
  12. I just started using the trial version of Designer. I am trying to create simple flower designs; think petals of a certain shape (perhaps teardrop) arranged around a center circle. Is there a tool, command or procedure to evenly arrange objects around a circle? Of course I would want the objects to radiate from the center of the circle. So the procedure would need to rotate the object and then distribute it. Thanks
  13. Hey guys! Today I ran into this little bug I guess. While moving two objects at the same time – which are placed in different layers – their layer order gets messed up. Here’s a quick demonstration of the problem. I want to realign the object so it better fits the composition. I know there're better ways to handle this … I’ll give it a try, but still. https://youtu.be/2R-xT7wam7g Cheers Dennis
  14. Title says it: if I want to center a group of elements they just disappear into Designers »vast, deep, grey void«. :ph34r: :lol: This occurred a couple of times to me in the latest beta and in some previous versions as well. I uploaded a short clip for demonstration. https://youtu.be/zQLXYLThT0w Oh, and don’t mind the music, I forgot to mute it … :) Cheers Dennis
