  1. When I add a table to my document it never shows the column headers (A, B, C, D, . . . ) or the row numbers (1, 2, 3, 4, . . . ). I can't seem to find a setting to show or hide them. I am running Publisher v 1.7.0.249. I am running Mac OS Mojave.
  2. I can't for the life of me work it out. Affinity_Publisher_Text_Different_Size.mov
  3. Any ideas? I can't get it to behave and I don't know what's going on. Affinity_Publisher_Leading.mov
  4. I know it's still early days with Affinity Publisher still being in beta for desktop at the time of writing, but out of sheer curiosity, are their intentions to release Publisher for iPad? I know there won't be any timeline or firm plan, but is it something you're thinking about?
  5. We are using Publisher as a discussion document for a new website design, for layout, copy, images etc. and it is working very well. I'm now tasked with copying text from the pages in the Publisher document into the web page design software (Netbeans) and I'm encountering the following strangeness when viewing the published web page in Chrome: Sprinkled throughout the text are these P SEP boxes which appear where there are paragraph breaks. I'm just using a select text, copy and then paste in the other app. This is a non-printable Unicode character that is not visible in most editors but can be deleted if you know where they are. There is also an L SEP box but I'v not encountered any of those yet. Is there any way I can avoid these characters being included on the clipboard?
  6. Hello, I have this issue. Not properly visualized gradient Affinity (Publisher; Designer) Google Chrome visualization.svg
  7. This morning I downloaded the latest version of Affinity Publisher for the Mac. It was an upgrade to the version already installed which was very stable. Now I am experiencing crashes every time I try to apply master pages or make adjustments to document setup. The software just crashes without warning. Mac OS Catalina 10.15.5 Apple Mac Mini Early 2012 16 GB of RAM
  8. I have installed the latest release - 1.8.3 on windows and everything seems OK until I click on the space bar when adding text which completely closes publisher. There is a solution under the "resolved published bugs" folder saying to navigate to %appdata%\Affinity\Publisher\ and rename the 1.0 folder to 1.0 backup, then relaunch the app, but it did not allow me to rename the folder. It says this will be fixed on the next release, but this was published in October 2019, so it doesn't seem to be fixed. Has anyone got a solution to this? I will work on an older software until this is resolved.
  9. Upgraded to Publisher 1.8.4 via US Apple App Store on Aug 3. Running MacOS 10.15.6 on 2018 iMac with 32 GB RAM. Open 2 page document and move page 2 to before page 1 causes crash. Mac crash report attached. I have uninstalled the app and reinstalled on Aug 4 with no change. I have turned off all graphics accelerators, no change. I have disconnected Wacom tablet and used Apple Trackpad, no change. Open 110 page, 195 MB document created with v 1.8.3 over the past 3 or 4 weeks. I can scroll thru the pages but I cannot edit or even select text. Many styles are missing and I cannot select or edit styles. I can click on the arrow to expand hierarchical styles and the arrow changes from right pointing to down pointing or vice-versa but no sub-styles list does not change. The pages studio panel shows all blank pages. File close causes the app to hang forever with spinning rainbow wheel. Because I bought the app via the Apple app store I cannot go back to 1.8.3. Can I download the older version from the Serif site and install it without paying for it again? AP 2-pg doc crash.txt
  10. Over the last couple of days I have been trying out the latest version of Quark that I have been really enjoying using (2017 is the only version I have used.) To me it seems like this is going to be a very hard area for Serif to compete in given that there are two products that many are happy with that have been advancing since the 1980s (or at least there are people that are happy with one of those two options.) Even if Publisher was out today it would still have a massive challenge in competing with these two options especially at Quark's new low $400 entry price (and yes that is low for a product of that level.) To me it seems like Lightroom like products would be so much easier to compete with due to the fact that it is a field that is only about ten years old and still has a lot of room to grow. I still have several major grips with LR and also the way that Affinity Photo interacts with catalog software like Apple Photos. It just seems like the more logical step to me. I think the fact that LR is the one app that hasn't not yet been subscription only shows that Adobe is aware that customers could easily move off this product to a competitor more easily then many other more well established products.
  11. I have been using Affinity Publisher since it’s early beta version and it has pretty much completely replaced Adobe InDesign for me. In general I am super happy with all 3 Affinity products which have become the main tools for my professional work. There are though still a few issues where I unfortunately do not get the performance I've been used to from InDesign. One extremely important thing for me and other designer colleagues of mine is precise fine tuning of justified text. In InDesign you can adjust the justification settings to get a pretty much perfect text box without weird spacing and gaps between words. My colleagues and I have until now been unable to get satisfactory results using Publisher’s settings so I would kindly ask the Affinty team working on Publisher to take an extra look into this feature and try and get it up to par with what's possible in InDesign. Maybe we have all been doing something wrong though I doubt it because I have heard this complaint in the forums before. I am including a screenshot of the settings I have been using for years in InDesign which pretty much give perfect results every time. I have yet to find the same ‘magic’ formula in Publisher and until then this will unfortunately be a major issue for me. Thanks for looking into this
  12. For example, View-> Roted Left is repeated 6 times and the canvas is rotated 90 degrees to the left. When you drag the canvas up with the View Tool, the vertical scroll bar moves down. This is no problem. However, if you move the vertical scroll bar down, the canvas moves to the left. The same applies to Photo and Publisher.
  13. When I add a Top Paragraph Decoration and increase the Distance To Text it comes nearer to the text. Also, when I add a Bottom Paragraph Decoration and increase the Distance To Text it comes nearer to the text. Shouldn’t the distance to the text increase when the value increases, i.e. Distance Away From Text? The current orientation doesn’t seem right to me.
  14. Hi All, I am new to Affinity range. In PagePlus I had a text frame and I click on "Justify Paragraph". That kind of makes the text even within the text frame. In Affinity Publisher I see I have more choices, but experimenting I could find similar result. Did I miss something? Or how do I set this up and save as a favourite? Thanks in advance
  15. This applies to both Publisher and Designer. Publisher 1.8.3.641 on Win 10. If I add a stroke outline to text, weird things happen as I increase the stroke weight. The outline/halo ends up with lots of holes in it, particularly at high stroke widths. Interestingly this only happens for "solid" stroke style. Some fonts are worse than others. If I change to "dotted" stroke with curved end caps then I get a solid outline, i.e. what you would expect from "solid" stroke style. Sometimes the holes in the outline disappear on PDF export, sometimes not. textoutlinetest.afpub
  16. I downloaded the Publisher 1.8 update. Now none of my Affinity apps will start up. What the heck is going on?
  17. How can I select all the text in a document? The background is that the spell check language is set to English and the actual language of the document is German. I wish to select all the text in the document and change it in one fell swoop from English to German. I have tried selecting all the pages in the "Pages" window on the left of the UI, and I have tried selecting all the Text Layers in the Layers window on the right of the UI, but unfortunately neither of them worked. Interestingly, selecting the Text Layers did seem to select all the Text Boxes in the document, but when I changed the language in the Character Tab, it had no effect. Thanks for any help! Steve
  18. I think it might be useful if, when using Filler Text (see note below), the last frame of the chained Text Frames displayed the word count, see attached image (word count not exact, just a mock-up). This would be helpful in situations where the writer, editor and layout artist wanted to be fairly sure that the text will fit into the layout. For example: * Editor tells the writer to produce, say, 1000 words; * Editor tells the layout artist to use a certain layout; * Layout artist creates the layout and uses filler text while the copy is being prepared; * Layout artist notices that the text frames will either probably not hold the prescribed number of words or will probably leave a big gap; * Layout artist advises the editor; * Editor tells the writer to either cut their copy down to fit or write more copy. This may allow the layout artist and writer to be able to reasonably ensure that the copy which is submitted is nearer to the required length earlier in the production process and, therefore, lessen problems later on when deadlines are nearer. This isn’t a major thing for me – I probably won’t use it at all personally – but I think some people might benefit. Note: I am not requesting that this word count is provided for non-Filler Text, this is just for when Filler Text is used. (A word count for ‘normal’ text has been discussed elsewhere and I don’t want to go over all that again.)
  19. I am designing a book that will be spiral-bound and therefore loose-leaf printed. Consequently the print PDF needs to be exported to 'All pages' (instead of spreads). When I set the inner bleed in the document settings and then export the PDF to all pages the inner bleed on the pages ends up being the page content of the facing page. If I have e.g. an image that goes all the way to the spine I have to stretch that image into the facing page in order to create an inner bleed for that page. I need to be able to seperate the spread in order to create proper bleed for the pages … in inDesign this known as 'Allow Document Pages to Shuffle'. Have I missed something in Publisher or is this indeed not possible in the current version? I have attached an image to illustrate the issue.
  20. Hi Forum, I'm quite desperate. Thursday I contacted affinity@serif.com and have not received any feedback yet. Maybe I have to "apply" for support via this forum. Unfortunately I can't find out on the website of Affinity how to behave if publisher obviously has a problem or maybe a bug. With both Files, short time before there was no problem with working on it in Publisher. Than in the first File, Affinity Publisher has crahed immediatelly. Then no way to reopen the file without crash the Publisher again and again. I restart the MacBook many times since the problem. No change. In the second file, while working Affinity Publisher has freezed by changing some Link-Stuff. I had to close the application with TaskManager... Than no chance to reopen the File with Publisher without a crash, again and again.. So here my Bug-Report: Are you using the latest release version? YES => Affinity Publisher 1.8.3 Can you reproduce it? YES => Everytime I open the file, Affinity Publisher will crash! Does it happen for a new document? If not do you have a document you can share that shows the problem? With new document => no problem | With 2 documents I can share there are this problems. No chance to reopen the files. Also when I use Time-Machine Backups, the same problem APulisher is crashing imediately... If you cannot provide a sample document then please give an accurate description of the problem for example it should include most of the following: What is your operating system and version (Windows 10, OSX Mojave, etc)? Mac OSX Mojave 10.14.6 (18G5033) What happened for you (and what you expected to happen) APublisher is crashing every time when I like to open one of the 2 files. > Should open the File and I can work on the documents, like before. Provide a recipe for creating the problem (step-by-step what you did). Double-Click on the File => crash! Or: Open APublisher and click on «File» there «open...» select one of the 2 files, click «open» => crash! Screenshots (very handy) or a screen capture/video. have Bug-Reports (from popup window after Affinity Publisher is crasched). Can also send you the 2 original Files (have done with one Thursda<, 4. June 2020 18:33, no answer still now) Any unusual hardware (like tablets or external monitors or drives that may affect things) or relevant other applications like font managers or display managers. (No new or updateded in Hardware) Did this same thing used to work and if so have you changed anything recently? (software or hardware) (No changed stuff, only change some document-settings in Affinity Publisher => in first file | and did some Link-Text change in the second File) Should I post the text files with the debug contents here? Or do I have to ask for a Drop-Box link? (found some entries for other bugs with this approach) I can also share the two files. But because they are customer projects I don't want to post them directly in the forum. Does anyone have an idea if I "have to" report such problems here in the forum? Is my way the right one? Or is there a better approach to get help as fast as possible and to continue working? I already had a similar problem in February this year. At that time, I got help via the support email (see above). Probably the procedure has changed a bit, because of the ammount of customers... Thank you very much for your feedback. Martin
  21. Hello, I cannot find any information elsewhere on this issue. I am working with a Affinity Publisher file saved in a Dropbox directory. I edited the file offline and synced to Dropbox. Now, on that computer and my desktop mac I cannot open this publisher file. When I select File | Open I receive a "Missing Resource(s)" pop-up. No matter what option I choose (Resource Manager, No or Yes) Publisher crashes. I'd like to fix the file and recover the changes I made too. Thanks in advance for any suggestions, Francis
  22. Hello All, I've just bought publisher and I'm struggling to work out where to begin, as I am completely new to desktop publishing software. I followed the tutorials link, and watched the interface overview video, but the rest all looked rather specific. I also tried searching the FAQ's but didn't spot anything. Any advice on where to start? Perhaps a sample simple project with a workthrough... In case it helps, the project I have in mind to start with is a large poster, with lots of elements that need to line up, with a consistent text style for the captions that accompany each image. Thanks, Nick.
  23. Hi, what I want to achieve is to remove all three palettes ("colors", "grays" and "gradients") from all three apps and create a new one which will contain only global colors. I could remove all of them only in Designer. In Photo and Publisher I was able to remove only "gradients" palette. Why? Now, back to Designer. I created a new application palette and renamed it to "global colors". I chose "add global color" from burger menu, created the color, clicked on "add" and Designer created a new palette named "document" and put the global color there, instead in mine "global colors". Why? Also, the button "add the current color to palette as a global color" is active only with "document" palette, not with mine "global colors". Why? Please, name the colors with their color values "C5 M5 Y0, K0), not with "Global color 1" or such.
  24. Hi, I was pleasantly surprised when I noticed that text styles are added into "paragraph" and "character" palettes. Maybe they were there from the beggining, but I noticed them recently. So, it would be very kind of you if you add a way to manage them within these palettes it would be one palette (text styles) less to occupy our precious working space. You can join "color" and "swatches" palettes, too.
  25. I have just watched Moving from InDesign to Affinity Publisher with Mike Barton and I was very impressed. What I would very much like to see is a companion video showing "Moving design from PagePlusX9 to Affinity Publisher". I am getting the same problems with importing PDFs as he so graphically describes. Unfortunately Markzware does not provide a companion piece of software to make the journey smoother. However a video guide to providing a Master Page and Text styles for this process would be a great help to the rather aduous process of conversion. What about it Affinity, it would make us PagePlus adherents more feel more loved by Serif. John
