  1. 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!
  2. I open a 50 side catalog that is finished, and as soon as I open the "resource manager", the Affinity Publisher crashes and the application is closed. There is no error message.
  3. Hi! I bought Affinity Publisher to replace Microsoft Publisher. But how can I install the Finnish language support? When creating large publications in Finnish, the language support is quite crucial for a publication software. Microsoft Publisher has good Finnish language support, but how about Affinity Publisher? I found some information about installing an Open Office hyphenation language pack. But as far as I can see, there is no open office hyphenation dictionary for Finnish. Best regards, Tommi
  4. This is a nightmare. PDF export just mangles all the text - well not all of it, just most of it. Randomly it leaves bits ok even with exactly the same font, styles, colours, weights, and the same master objects applied - you can see in the screenshots one spread in the doc is ok and one is not (most aren;t) . Some headings are ok but body text is mashed. There's no logic to this, nothing consistent about why and how it fails. Publisher came out just in time for me to start these two jobs with a hard print deadline. After 2 - 3 days of arsing about trying to fix this problem after setting 120 pages, I thought I'd finally solved this by stopping using my FontBase font manager, removing all the Montserrat font versions and reinstalling them to system fonts and trying again for the upteenth time. So I started the other doc. But it's back again. The problem is, every time I do this reinstalling fonts process, the document seems to interpret the fonts as new fonts, substituting the old, then I have to go through and set everything again. Like hundreds of Latin names in italic in the body copy I will have to go through and manually do again and again, every time it happens. And many more issues besides will need to be addressed again. This is a real problem. I see someone else has it to - I commented on that thread days back but there's no response on there. This is Windows 10 Pro, Montserrat (Google font) - marked as fully embeddable. I tried turning off the subset option on exports dozens of times and it makes no difference. It's extended this job into days more than it should have been. I really like what you're trying to do with this suite of software but please please please get this sorted - people are trying to produce pro documents for print but we're falling at the last hurdle. It's pretty crashy too but the recovery so far has been reasonably good. Plenty of other niggles with things but the PDF export thing really really needs sorting though. Please can somebody look into this urgently?
  5. Hi A little about my setup: I own Affinity photo, publisher and designer. The Programmes are running on a Mac Pro 3.5 GHz 6-Core Intel Xeon E5 with 32 GB 1866 MHz DDR3 and 1Tb solid state I am working through the Affinity publisher workbook and I am currently working through the Professional Projects ( Root Box Brochure ) and I am applying the root box logo to the cardboard box. Now I've gone off book here, but I wanted to make the logo look as if it was printed on the box and therefore I need to apply a little perspective to the image. So I've selected the photo persona and then gone to the mesh warp tool, which when selected, as soon as I place my cursor on the corner of the logo and click - the whole affinity package crashes. I might be asking for too much, or doing something wrong, but I would appreciate feedback!
  6. I had created a table, then decided that the information in some cells should be moved. So I highlighted the data and moved it to the new cell which was intended to be the cell below As you can see from the graphics file below, the information highlighted in blue was not moved to the cell I selected, but inserted in an entirely different row and column, in the middle of the text in that cell. OK I can control X and control V but it would be so much easier and quicker if I could simply move the data. Publication3.pdf
  7. 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.”
  8. Hi - how can you offer a publisher tool and then it is not possible to use Emojis. I have bought publisher to have free opportunities to create flyers, brochures or a book. Is there a way to change it in some settings? Thanks for fast reply Corina
  9. I am attempting to automate the process of creating a daily agenda as much as I possibly can. The agenda will have two days per page. I know to create a global numbered list so that the days are numbered automatically, but I was wondering if it was possible to automate cycling through the days of the week (Sunday-Saturday or Monday-Sunday). Right now, I'm having to make three master pages with each day of the week listed out, but if I were able to create a global list that cycles through the days of the week, I'd only need one madter. Is this that all possible? Thank you!
  10. Hello together, I think I use the flow options wrong, because I've set up not to divide 3 lines but the paragraph starts with 2 lines on the old page. Please take a look to the attached screenshot. What's set up wrong? Thank you for your help. Rainer
  11. I'm designing a children's book for a client and have run into a problem with our printing company. The first physical copy of the book we ordered had full page spreads that were not lined up properly in the center. I contacted them about this issue and they said it was due to the bleeds being incorrectly set up. I put the book together as spreads, and then un-checked "facing pages" so I can manually adjust the inner bleed for my full-page spreads on each individual page. When I put facing pages back on to see how it looks, the spread illustration flows across the page just fine. However, my printer wants to see the inner bleed for the corresponding pages to "cross over" so the bleeds appear on the opposite inner edge of the page. I've seen other posts on this forum where people have seen the inner bleed "crossover" as a problem, but my file doesn't do this. How can I set this up in Affinity Publisher? I've attached an example of what they want me to do from their site as well as screenshots of what my spread currently looks like (as facing pages and as individual pages).
  12. Hi Folks.... I am royally stuck. I'm working on a book, using Publisher I created two master pages: a right-hand page (B) and a left-hand page (A), with inner margins wider than the outer margins. I created a doc with text frames in the doc (not on the master pages). I'm NOT using facing pages spread. (I tested this problem with facing pages, but it made no difference.) I pasted a long Word doc into a spot in between some pages, and after a while discovered that some of my pages were all using the *right-hand* master page. So, I've repeatedly deleted all the pages except page one, and then set page one to use Master Page "Right", and then shift-clicked on the red arrow to flow in my document (that is already saved internally in the publisher file). It consistently uses the right-hand Master Page for all 300 pages. I tried applying Master Page Left to the even number pages, and it did that correctly, but then the imported text frames were not positioned correctly (they were too far to the right). * I was hoping that the shift-click import would automatically use the right hand master for the odd-numbered pages and the left-hand master for the even-numbered pages, but it didn't. I tried creating text frames on the masters, but the shift-click on document page one ignored them. I thought I had this figured out a while ago, but I couldn't find any notes (I ran into it before), and I've searched the forums for over an hour, with no luck. * I don't want to have to move each left-page text frame by hand, and it seems like this should be an operation that automatically works, on a shift-click import. Any help would be greatly appreciated. 🙂 Peter Brown
  13. I've created a booklet using Publisher 1.7.1 by assembling text from several sources direct into Publisher, and then tweaking the result. So the text in Publisher is now the only "master." I now want also to create a Kindle version, with flowing text. I have PagePlus X9, Sigil, Libre Office, and various Amazon tools. If possible, I do not want to install / buy yet more software. Recently, I've published other books from PagePlus X9 in flowing ePub3, then used Amazon's tools to convert into Kindle formats. This has worked well: Amazon has reported no problems. Questions: What is the best way to convert a Publisher document into a flowing Kindle eBook? What is the best way to extract the story text from a Publisher document, for use elsewhere? Do I really have to recreate this document in PagePlus X9 (or another program) before exporting it as a flowing ePub? Are there other tools which would make any of this easier?
  14. One of the features in page plus was the ability to increase or reduce the size of the text so as to fill a frame completely. Is that available in publisher?
  15. Hi Two questions: 1) Setting up a document wide default style, workflow... BTW: I'm really confident with text styles. Yet I'm bumping up against the logic in Affinity Publisher. My usual workflow in InDesign: Create new document Style a piece of text to give me font style, size and leading (line spacing) In paragraph styles panel - "[Basic Paragraph]" is highlighted by default. Right-click > "Redefine Basic Paragraph". Job done - start laying-out the document and creating styles. In those 3 moves, I've set up a file with a default *document* text style. (InDesign's "[Basic paragraph]" is not delete-able by accident, that's what the square brackets indicate so it's a safe place to set these 'document defaults'). Can anyone give me a similar numbered step-by-step list for how I achieve the same in Publisher, please? ----------- 2) No Style, keh?! Let's be really clear - > the so-called "No style" HAS a style. It's Arial 12pt Regular (12.4pt). That's ....a style... What is "No style" that's in Arial Regular 12pt style for, please? What's it's purpose, why is it there - what is it for?

  18. Is it possible to import the 2nd page of a pdf document into a Publisher Document. Importing the first page is easy, but how to import subsequent pages of the same pdf?
  19. Hi! I've been working with risograph printing lately and I was wondering if someone here has used Affinity for riso before. As with screen printing, riso printer works with grayscale files. Despite that, several printing websites recommend to use registration black for small text (12 pt or less) and 100% K for bigger text, though I've also read that it's better to use always 100% K for any text. If that's true, the printer recognizes CMYK values. If I use Publisher to make a riso printed fanzine, should I make a CMYK color format file instead of Gray? For instance, If I work using swatches of black ink only (100% K, 80% K, etc.) and I want to export a pdf file while keeping the same % of black without being changed to a different value, I think CMYK is the obvious solution. However, I often find myself confused with color modes and profiles and I thought it'd be interesting to know your opinions or sharing experiencies regarding the use of Affinity programs for riso printing. Thanks in advance!
  20. Hi there! I use a dual screen setup (Win 10 - 20H2, Auros RX5700XT graphics card, latest drivers as of 5.12.2020) and decided to move some panels to the second screen. Among them is the textstyle panel. While changing the size of any panel works fine on the second screen, any relevant change of the textstyle panel freezes the app. No crash report, no error message. Here is my recipe: Create a new document of any size and format or load an existing one. Drag some panels out of the apps main window and place them on the second screen. Adjust the size of any of them, e.g. the pages panel - everything works fine. Resize the textstyle panel in height by clickdraging the bottom of the panel downwards - boom! App freezes. By the way: Designer is affected, too. With Designer it is even worse: Sometimes just clicking on the title of the panel causes Designer to crash. And in both cases it is only the textstyle panel that causes the freeze (at least in my case). Is that a know problem or just limited to my pc? Best, Volker
  21. How do I copy part of a placed image in Publisher? I have two placed png scans on a single Publisher page. I want to copy part of one image over to the other image. When I do a freehand select of a part, copy it, and then paste it, what I get is the whole of the first image, not just the freehand selected section. This was done in the Photo Persona BTW, as I assumed I had to when working with a pixel image. Do I need to get out of Publisher and do the copy/paste thing in Photo? Publisher Win 7, V
  22. Hi I have noticed there is no function to be able to paste in place. For example, if you had an image on a double page spread which was on the left page. When you copy this and paste it to another double page it will appear on the left page and have to be dragged over. It would be great if you could paste special - "paste in place" which replicates the location on the page within the page you have selected. This would be especially helpfully when creating seamless front and back covers. This is available in InDesign and would be really helpful in Publisher
  23. Hello Everyone Hello Team I think it is time to think about bring an internal tool/function that will allow users to backup their full #Designer #Photo #Publisher profile and restore that full backup when needed. I mean, it often happened to me (and I guess to many) to be called on reinstalling my PC (windows actually) and find out I have to redo everything from the very beginning and considering my personal collection of assets, brushes, palettes etc. have i'm an unexpected way over the years ... I'm spending an hour or more to make everything work as expected or just be back like on my previous setup and this goes also for tab/studio alignment etc Really it's something different which is need to make this happen and former Adobe products will agree with that it's just painful to set everything back to the right place we want them. if in any case this was asked or there is an existing topics on this already please admins, feel free to move this in there as I personally couldn't find where to insert this and chosed to create a new topic. Hope this will happen at some stages and make a lot of people happy. Blessings !
  24. I use the field "filename" in my publisher document, say "bulletin001.afpub". When I export this document to a PDF with filename "report001.pdf", the fields in the document are updated to the name of the exported file. I'd prefer to have the original filename "bulletin001.afpub" showing up even in the exported PDF. Is there a setting to achieve this?
  25. When I apply a master page only to a right-hand page, it still seems to affect the left-hand page with its text wrapping settings. Let me explain. In the attached facing pages Publisher document, I have two master pages. The Base master page contains just a left and a right text frame. The Image master page has Base applied to it and in addition contains two picture frames with text wrapping on: In the document, I applied the master pages as follows: First spread: page 1 – Base, page 2 – Image. Second spread: page 3 – Image, page 4 – Base. So each spread has different master pages applied to its left and right pages. Curiously, on both spreads text wrapping also affects the page that only has the Base master page applied: I expected a page that doesn’t have a picture frame on it to be filled with filler text from top to bottom, because there is nothing on the page or its master page that could cause text wrapping. Is this behavior a bug or is it by design? How can I apply a master page to a right-hand page in a way that doesn’t affect the left-hand page of the same spread? Ghost master page text wrapping.afpub
