  2. Hey everyone! Please consider including saving and loading the studio layout to and from file (windows, toolbar content, tools position and content) for Designer, Photo and Publisher. This would speed up things when - using the software on multiple Macs - having the layout set back by an update (e.g. 1.7) - going from a beta version to the store version It took me about 45 minutes to setup the UI for Affinity Publisher, including Designer and Photo persona, on two Macs. Also, I think the Designer and Photo personas of Publisher should read the UI layout of Designer and Photo. Best wishes, Shu
  3. I do have a question. How can we link our existing Affinity Photo and Designer software from the App store with StudioLink? It currently says that both are not installed on my Macbook Pro, but they are.
  4. I'v been testing the creation of table of content on Publisher and find it very limited on possibilities. Maybe i'm wrong, but it seems that a TOC can only be created based on page sections, and that you can only assign a unique style to the whole table. In wordprocessors and InDesign, table of content can and is usually generated based on paragraph styles, particularly Header styles. And you can assign different styles on the table based on what the original paragraph style is. This is particularly necessary on reports and technical documents, where you have different levels of content that can be on the same page and that must be included on the TOC, and visually different. On Publisher you can't create subsections nor create a TOC with multiple items on the same page. Is limited to a simple section title (As you can only assign a unique section per page). I've attached the TOC of a recent report I made on InDesign, that I can't reproduce on Publisher. On Indesign is automaticaly generated based on the paragraph styles (No need to create sections), and can create levels of content by detecting multiple paragraph styles, no problem if there are multiple instances on the same page, and also you can assign a paragraph style for each level of TOC. Hope I'm wrong and there is something that is hiding from me, but by now, the TOC of Publisher seems only usable to simple (very) basic chapter books. Making a report TOC like the attached one will mean doing the TOC manually (ouch!)
  5. Congratulations to Serif and the Publisher team on release! In very early use, I'm noticing that Publisher 1.7.1 is not seeing all the fonts installed on my Mac. I don't notice a particular pattern, though I haven't yet looked hard. In particular, "Book Antiqua" is MIA, though it is verifiably active on my Mac. (2017 MBPro, High Sierra.) Thank you for the release.
  6. Greetings! What I am wanting to do is have a book that must be rotated every time a page is turned. So for example.... If I have a Master page with the Spread going horizontal... So you can read it from left to right..... Then I want the spread to be from Top to Bottom...... I figure that this feature would cause confusion for some people if this is not what they want... Thanks in advance!
  7. A couple of quick questions: I imported an MS Word10 pdf file with over 130 pages with "minor" problems. a. Numerous words are missing space bands. b. Upon editing the above text, the justification on the line blows out the right margins. c. It seems that any hyphened words get "spelling error" underscore. Q1: Are there any "quick solutions" for the above a-c items, since this is a novel that I'm trying to reformat so that it looks nicer. (These errors are extensive.) Otherwise, the conversion is on the money! Great presentation on Publisher today! Q2: Is Publisher able to import raw MS Word10 .docx files? Or is that on the "wish list?"
  8. Hi, I have downloaded and updated my Affinity publisher, however, when I open the software it's still advising me that there is an update. I have restarted my machine since the update and the same thing is happening. P.S looking forward to product launch. Thanks in advance. Clyall90
  9. I'm working on a large publishing file with 150 pages and a lot of graphics. It was going well but it seems that since recent program updates the file is crashing every few minutes. Not sure if it's got anything to do with the updates or some other reason. I'm using a Mac computer.
  10. Hey Everyone, I've been playing with the beta and love it and am trying to create a promo piece/booklet. Unfortunately I can't get the double sided printing preview or execution to work properly without jumbling everything around or not including a full preview. Has anyone had success with this ? Thank you :) -S
  11. Hi, I've already mentioned this long ago, but it's still bugged. I've got 3 paragraphs and 3 text styles, each one 's got a "next style" set (x > y > z). When I select few paragraphs and use the option "Apply style_x and next styles", the first paragraph should be applied style_x, the second one style_y and the third style_z. Visually, it's ok (1st paragraph looks like style_x, 2nd one looks like style_y and 3rd one looks like style_z). But in fact, the when I select each one of the 3 paragraphs, the Text style panel only shows style_x applied. It's more than a visual error, since APub thinks only the 1st style is applied.
  12. It would be useful if you could adjust row height and column width in tables by entering a value rather than clicking and dragging
  13. 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.”
  14. Not sure if this is mentioned before by someone (couldn't find one on the forum): Using Publisher 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
  15. 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.
  16. 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)
  17. Non Breaking Space funcition works incorrect. The letter "s" should be attached (with space) to the next line word... Not divided by dash.
  18. 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!
  19. do you have to uninstall the beta
  20. 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!
  21. 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 ( 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
  22. 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
  23. 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.
  24. ...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.
  25. 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.
