  1. I find the fields feature to be very useful, but it would also be useful to be able to be able to define your own custom fields.
  2. I created a text box for headers at the top of my pages. I want the headers on even (left) pages to say "Chapter One", "Chapter Two", etc. while the headers on the odd (right) pages contain the name of the chapter. So I know I need to make each chapter a Section, and I inserted the Section Name as a field for the odd page header. But how can I create an automatically incrementing field for the chapter number as a word?
  3. There are some issues with using automated fields in text: - After loading a file, page number fields in the open page show as a hashtag (#) instead of the actual value. Only after refreshing the page by clicking around it gets its actual value. - In the master pages for some reason the Total Pages field is shown as a value (the actual page count), but the Page Number field is showing a hashtag symbol (#) instead of its value. To me that seems inconsistent and gives me the impression as a user this part of the software is not stable yet. I would expect both fields to show their values or both fields to show some symbol representing them, but not both using a different method. See video below and file in attachment.

  4. Months ago I made a Publisher file with Master pages and auto page numbering. Using this now I was very much surprised to see this automatic page numbering doesn't work anymore. All pages now have the same number: 1. I stripped the file to the bare minimum to show the issue. See file in the attachment: both Page 1 as well as Page 2 show `pag. 1/2` in the right bottom corner. BTW the placeholders for these fields in the master pages for current page number (#) and the last pagenumber (2 in this case) are very confusing in my opinon and don't indicate there is a placeholder active. [EDIT] I moved these to another thread as a feature request: test.afpub
  5. Hello, I'd like to report a minor bug (APub 1.7.3.481) View > Studio > Fields General Information > Date & Time Tripple dot menu shows letter M before month number (M11 instead of 11 in the example) and same when the list gets expanded.
  6. Please add full set of fields in the context menu (mouse right click) so that it becomes easier to add e.g. Section name in the header on a master page. Or, at least make them available under Text > Insert > Field. Now most fields must be picked from the separate Field panel, but at least the Section name would be convenient to be available from a menu, similarly as the Page Number field.
  7. Working on a workbook and I wanted to have a day countup / countdown I.e., day 35/330, day 34/329, day 35/328 35 could be done with sections and page number field however I am unsure how to get the 330 to properly “countdown” other than manually typing which I do not want to do as there’s too much possibility for human error. any thoughts?
  8. Hi All, I am new to Designing. And trying to create editable PDF files for my client. What are my current options? Can I create editable PDF directly on any of the Affinity products? If not, how can i go about it? Can I create designs etc on Affinity designer app and then somehow make the PDF editable to be filled by someone. Only basic few words need to be editable. Please help. thanks.!!
  9. Publisher 1.7.1 on MacOS 10.9.5. Apple TrackPad. No joy with new or old document. Follow exact procedure portrayed in Sections Tutorial : dbl-click on Field name in Fields panel. No options shown in Text/Insert/Fields menu other than page, next frame and previous frame number. Must also add that for book production, hierarchical sections are very highly desirable, allowing display of both chapter and section title in header. Rank almost as highly as need for foot/endnotes.
  10. Hello, I think I have a problem with the field panel. What I am trying to do is to insert some section name in the master page, so I am creating a new text frame at the bottom of the page, and open the field panel and double click on the "section name" area. Now the insert text cursor appear correctly, but when I double click on the section name nothing happens (no grey tone changes, no acknowledgment of my clicking) Note that I am able to insert a page number (see screenshot) via the text>insert>field>page number, but I can't insert a page number by using the panel.
  11. I am having a hard time replicating a document i originally created in indesign. I basically created a template letter where the file name is also used as the subject in the letter. For this I wanted to use the fields option, but the problem is that when I use Filename as the field, it adds the extention as well, which is not what I want. When I use the title field, it will not change when I change the filename of the document, or when I duplicate the document to create a new one. So I really hope an option can be added to hide the extention for this use case. What I am not sure about is, if when I use the field "date created", if this would change if I create a new copy of the document to reflect the new copy, or if it would take the creation date of the original base file? I can not test it right now, but I will have to see how this would work. Thing is, I want it to be the date I create the document, but I don't want it change once I reopen the document on another date, if you understand what I mean.
  12. I'm on Designer 1.6.1 on Mac running High Sierra and can't tab between fields in the Character and Paragraph panels (works fine in Transform). I removed the default shortcut of using the Tab key to Toggle UI but that didn't help. Is this a bug? Please do enable tabbing between fields in all panels in future releases. Thanks. Here is a link to a screen recording showing how tabbing works properly in Transform but not in Character/Paragraph: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1a4Rq4CbxbVtgfsY0vgocRECgVWMjSi04
  13. Hi. I use photoscape along with affinity photo. PhotoScape has a unique option on the rightclick menu to edit or copy the exif metadata. For those who don't know what metadata is, the EXIF is imbedded into a RAW or JPEG or TIFF to record details relevant to the picture. For example, ISO Fstop focal length of lens exposure time are all recorded as well as photograph date drive mode etc. This is a really handy tool so I don't have to carry pencil and paper around with me when taking photos. I note this feature is also missing in Affinity photo. I can cut paste across applications but to have this feature in publisher would be very helpful.
  14. I'm having some difficulties with the usage of variables in the transformation fields. I want to resize an Object in relation to the document size - how do I do that? By the looks of it the transformation fields effectively do not allow any reference to document size but only to the object size. I can't belive this is true considering variables for document size interaction seem to be available. All variables described in "Variable for transformation related to page" (in German "Variablen für Transformationen mit der Seite") in the help file do not work in the transformation fields. The only variable working is "w" for Object width or "h" for Object hight. What am I doing wrong? Cheers, Timo
  15. Hello At this moment, the input fields in the Affinity programs behave in a way that is not native to OSX. I don't know if this is a deliberate choice, but I feel like it would be nice if they behaved consistent with other OSX apps. I also noticed that not every input field behaves the same in Affinity. An example in the Transform palette: - When hovering over an input field, the cursor should transform to the text-selection icon. - Clicking in an input field yields the expected behaviour; you can start typing where you pointed the cursor. This works perfect. - When using the tab key to jump from field to field, I expect the content of that field to be selected so I can immediately start typing thus replacing the previous content. But right now, if I start typing, my typing replaces the quantity while the units (i.e. px or mm) stay put. I get that you designed the input field this way because in most situations, the designer wants to adjust the size in the same unit. But when this is not the case, a few extra actions are required to clear the input field. Often I want to use the expressions in those fields like "sh" or "sw/2" (which are terrific by the way!). So if I jump to the height input field and type "sh" and press enter, nothing happens because it keeps the px unit and thus the expression is incorrect. In my opinion, this wouldn't be a problem if the whole content of the input field was selected on tab-jumping to it; if I just wanted to change 200 px to 400 px I could type "200", and Affinity would automatically append "px" (as it does now), but if I wanted to use expressions, I wouldn't be hindered by the sticky unit. I'm looking forward to hear your opinion! Bauke
  16. Too bad that the mathematical functions do not profit of the internal precision or the needed symbols kept us unaware of? e.g. you scale a 100 mm object by "/7" and later by "*7" and get a 100,1 mm object. In other apps you really get the correct internal results. Please, what about the MOST PRECISE PROFESSIONAL GRAPHIC SOFTWARE? When will it be fixed?
  17. How about a feature that's seen on some software (including most adobe apps)… where as clicking on a field name with a box next to it for inputting values will auto select the preset values so that the user can quickly input their desired values. For now the user has to manually mouse over into the field and highlight the text to delete/input the numbers, The attached screenshot should demonstrate what I mean. Thank you and keep up the great work Affinity Designer looks VERY promising!
