  1. Hello, I have created a "button" icon of a PDF file that I wish to include inside an exported copy of a report that I am creating in Affinity Publisher (see screenshot). I gave the PDF icon Hyperlink Properties: Hyperlink Type: File. I pointed the hyperlink to where the file resides on my computer. Finally, I check boxed "Include File on Export." I then exported the Affinity Publisher file in PDF format. I have tried a few PDF formats for exporting: PDF (for export) PDF (digital - small size) PDF (digital - high quality) When trying to click the hyperlink on my work computer, I get the following message: "The file “FileName.pdf” couldn’t be opened because you don’t have permission to view it." I tried giving full permissions to both the exported PDF and the linked file PDF but I still get the same message. When I try to click the hyperlink in the exported PDF on another computer, nothing happens. I do not even get the message telling my I do not have permission to view it. Could someone please help me by letting me know: What is expected behavior when we link a file in a PDF export and check box "Include File on Export." Please tell me what I am doing wrong. Thank you in advance for any help and support. I am using an iMac running macOS Catalina and the latest version of Affinity Publisher.
  2. I have discovered a very strange issue with a publication in which I am working. Somehow, the body style became "infected" with a hyperlink reference causing that all paragraphs with the body style or any descendant would pick the character style of the following paragraph whenever they were edited. The issue is described on the following post: Report post Posted 1 hour ago I have been able to solve the problem by removing the style and reformatting the whole document, but it would be nice to know why it happened.
  3. I would like to add a link to a phone number (tel:+4412345678) in an interactive PDF. The Add URL function always creates a 'https://' automatically, so the tel:-link cannot work. From my point of view the automatic 'https://' is unnecessary? Many thanks and best regards Dominik
  4. Hello, I have a file with about 200 pages and over 3,000 hyperlinks. I have set the hyperlinks to anchors in the document. Now editing in the document is hardly possible anymore, because every action is executed very slowly. Since I want to add more pages with links, someone can give me a hint why the program gets slower and slower.
  5. Hi, I am fairly new to Publisher and I'm creating a digital planner. I am using hyperlinks/anchors to link menu "buttons" to page content, but only the source links on my master pages display in the hyperlink studio, not their target anchors, despite being separately named elements. Surely both hyperlink sources and target anchors should be showing in the studio? I've selected show all types, show anchors etc. am I missing something here? Yes, I can click each source hyperlink and "go to target" but it would be easier to have targets listed in the studio too, especially for tasks like bulk-renaming. For example: If I want to rename the source hyperlink, the studio displays them in a list and i can click to rename each one quickly without leaving whatever page I am on in the document; but to rename the target anchors I have to click "go to target" for each source, which takes me to the page, right click on the anchor and then click "Interactive>anchor properties" to rename it. Seems unnecessary when there's a studio called Hyperlinks they could be appearing in?
  6. Hey! I hope it reaches someone from Serif. My point is that for a lot of us who exclusively use the Affinity Suite, there are such small things that when you need them, they seem like a pain in the ass. Today's example is the option to hyperlink text in Affinity Designer. It bothers specially since I've found other people asking for it even in 2016! So that'd be my request... That we do not end 2020 without the option to be able to hyperlink text in AD. Thanks.
  7. Hi there, I am wanting to create an email signature for a client that can include hyperlinks for email addresses, phone numbers and social media etc in Affinity Designer. Is this possible? I have hunted around and can't seem to find an answer. I tried exporting the design file from Designer to Publisher to see if I could do it there - but when I export the finished design file to my desktop, the hyperlinks I included in publisher don't work (I may have not followed the steps properly..?) If anyone can point me in the right direction I would really appreciate it! Thank you and best wishes, L
  8. Hi, Once I add a hyperlink to a text, I can't change it. See the file attached as well the screenshot of hyperlinks missing from the menu. AP 1.8.3 hyperlink-bug.afpub
  9. Perhaps there could be a "Show Hyperlinks" option the same way there is a "Show Anchors" option in the Text>Interactive menu? There are an obnoxious amount of hyperlinks/anchors in the document I'm working on and having visual indicators like the anchors do for whether something's been hyperlinked already or not would be helpful.
  10. Hello, I think I found a bug. When I insert a hyperlink on some text in a text frame, it will still work even though I hide that text frame. Meaning, I hide the hyperlink, export the PDF, open the PDF and click in the area where the label is hidden and the hyperlink still works. Steps to Reproduce: Add a text frame Add some text Insert a hyperlink to a URL Go into Layers pane Uncheck the text frame so it is no longer visible Export to PDF Click in the area where the text frame is What happens? A browser opens up and you are navigated to the URL. What is expected to happen? Nothing should happen and the hyperlink should not be there if the text frame is not visible.
  11. I have a fairly large table of contents (2 column, 1 page) with maybe ~100 entries (20 chapters, the rest level 2) in a PDF that has 164 pages. About 95% of the hyperlinks in the TOC in the generated PDF go to the correct page. However, there's a handful that go to the next page (TOC page + 1) instead of page 86 or 87 or whatever it says in the TOC. This works for almost everything and requires me to click on each specific link to make sure it's valid or not. This is another deal breaker (besides the ability to generate PDF bookmarks from TOC or header styles or whatever) for digital publishers - when the TOC hyperlinks doesn't work! And there's no bookmarks! So users reading large documents will get a subpar PDF experience! Also, what's also annoying is that I need to insert a column break to prevent orphan chapter/section (the last entry on col 1 is a chapter title with it's subsections at top of col 2, so I insert a col break to make it look correct), then I get the pop-up saying "TOC has changed" on every.single.export. Even though nothing has change. I just added a col break inside of the TOC. Edit: Added image from Acrobat Pro that shows the hyperlink properties. This hyperlink property is for the chapter "Sembia" and page "88" link below it, but it says Page 4 (TOC is on Page 3).
  12. When a hyperlink's type is URL, the Go to Target button is not available (i.e., it is grayed out). This might be a feature rather than a bug, but I ended up reporting it here because the documentation does not mention anything about hyperlink type restrictions when describing this feature, and because one might expect the URLs to be visitable similarly as in InDesign, as it is often important to check that links (also URL ones) included in a publication are not broken.
  13. I have successfully created a hyperlink in one of the betas. But now the email link did not work. Only after ten quick clicks or so the email would open. I re-created the link and now it doesn't work at all. What I did: Write the text g.g. email@mydomain.com underline it select text Go text-interactive-hyperlink I accidentally clicked in the hyperlink panel "go to target" I don't know what this means and how to set a target. When I click the email address in the pdf it takes me to page one of the magazine instead of opening up the email application. How can I fix this mess so a click on the email link opens the email? thanks!
  14. I am thrilled with the release version of Publisher for hundreds of reasons. But I am very dismayed by how poorly the hyperlink function actually works. Whether I am attempting to hyperlink to another page or to a URL, it hardly ever succeeds. When I input the specifications, and hit return, Publisher simply quits entirely. Sooooo frustrating!! Has anyone found a solution to this issue? Or is there a new build available? This is really messing me up on a project right now. I would love it if there was a way to fix this unfortunate bugginess. Please let me know. Thanks.
  15. Is there a way to add a hyperlink to text in Designer so when we export as a PDF the link will stay live? I see the hyperlink option in the PDF export dialog box but I don't see anywhere to actually add the link data to text (or an object). Cheers!
  16. I have previous used WEBPLUS 8 by Serif. Seeing webplus 8 has been discontinued, I purchased Affinity Designer. It is an easy transition , however I am missing something. How does one Hyperlink from Affinity Designer. I built (armature) websites. Does Affinity Designer have capability of Hyperlinks? I have ordered the tutorial book, but not received as yet. Any input appreciated.
  17. Hello, I really need this feature for a project. How to make a text link to a url with AD? Is it possible ? If not, do you know an other way to put it ? Thank you. Regards. Bilel
  18. Will there ever be the chance to add hyperlinks to texts, that can be included in exported PDF's?
  19. Hello, may I ask you to add Hyperlinks. Because it's important for invitations, route descriptions, product datasheets, etc on every pdf that was prepared by Designer. Even this forum allows to insert links, https://affinity.serif.com/en-us/windows/ Regards.
