  1. Hello all: When we have an image anchored to a text frame, and we want to create a new page with a new text frame using the Flow Text boton (the triangle set at the sides of the frame), we can do it once, but if we want to use it twice, the images anchored disappear from the document. Nevertheless, the images are still appearing in the thumbnails of the pages pannel. In the following picture, we have a text frame with an anchored in-line image. Now we use the Flow Text boton: The first use is ok, the image still appears: The second use, makes the image to disappear from the Layers pannel and the document, but in the thumbnail you can see it. How can we solve this until developers rearrange it? Thank you.
  2. I'm a relatively new user of Publisher, using v.1.9.0.932 on Win10Pro-64bit. Since updating, I'm noticing diagonal fine lines across images. I'm assuming they are edting aids, but will they affect output, especially printing? And. how did I mistakenly turn them on?? See attachment. Thanks.
  3. Hi. I am well advanced on a magazine I am producing and all of a sudden the text will not wrap around an image I am adding, whereas on the several previous images it worked fine. "Ignore text wraps" is not checked for the text frame. When trying repeatedly to do it Affinity actually crashed, though the crash report goes to Apple not to Affinity I suspect. Has anyone had a similar problem recently? I am using Affinity Publisher 1.8.6 on an iMac with 32GB RAM, running Big Sur 11.1. Thanks!
  4. Hello folks, I have the following situation: I have opened a file that I created with Affinity Publisher on the PC with Affinity Designer on the Ipad. In this document of Affinity Publisher the images and PDF files are linked. I have collected the images and PDF documents separately in folders. Now I loaded all the files on the Ipad and wanted to continue working on the .afpub document on the go with Affinity Designer. Opening it was no problem, but the attempt to relink the images and PDF documents fails. I have not found any such function.😬 Will the function to relink files on Affinity Designer (Ipad) be possible soon? As long as Affinity Publisher for Ipad is not yet available, such a possibility would be really helpful to work on the go with .afpub files on Ipad with Affinity Designer to have a halfway decent solution in between. Either way, this feature is actually a must-have. Otherwise, kudos to the team for the new Affinity Publisher workbook. I'm reading it right now and am thrilled with the painstakingly appealing work you've done with the book. 👏
  5. We have a book with images in grayscale (original, not converted). We tweaked the contrast of those images to look good in print. In earlier editions of the book, the images rendered correctly in exported PDFs. The contrast was perfect. Now, however, images in exported PDFs from the same Publisher file have reduced contrast. We do not know how to correct this issue. In the attached image, the page on the right is what we desire (and what appears in Publisher workspace). But what we get now in exported PDFs is what is shown in sample on the left.
  6. I was wondering if there's a way to do an SVG export but exclude any images from the export. I basically want an SVG that I can work with which has all of the outline information separately, and save the graphics portion of the drawing as a separate bitmap. I thought that selecting the "Nothing" option for the Rasterize menu option under the export menu might work, but it did not. I did some additional debug, and I found that by changing the zoom level of the bitmap patterns that I'm using, I can make the tool either include the image in the SVG export or exclude the image when the "Nothing" option is selected in the Rasterize menu option. Sounds like a bug?? Yet some additional debug data. If I select all items to export, I can then go into the export menu and select for the Area "Selection with background". If I then subsequently pick '"Selection without background", then the tool will not export the images. Can someone explain if my interpretation of how the "Nothing" option for Rasterize is correct? If so, it sounds like it's not working correctly for SVG export.
  7. I have found "Lock Children" useful but hard to reach. I haven't found it in any menus yet. So far the only access I've found is to click a very tiny icon at the extreme upper right of the Publisher window, drop down a small menu, and select Lock Children. This involves hitting tiny icons or UI elements with the mouse, which is not what I'd call the most user-friendly thing ever. Then, do the same if you need to toggle the setting off again. With this apparently not being anywhere in the keyboard shortcuts dialog, there's no way to assign a keystroke to the command that I know of. But is there some easier way to get to the command? Maybe I've just missed something obvious. If not—publisher developers: Could this check-box not be available at least in the Frame Properties dialog? Or be a menu item in its own right when you right-click a frame? Or be part of the Frame Properties fly-out menu when you right-click a frame?
  8. Following up another thread in which I wrote about having trouble putting a simple rule (stroke) around a rectangular object of type "pixel." The controls for adding a rule work with an object of type "image," but don't work with one of type "pixel". The convert-to-picture-frame menu item is inaccessible when you right-click a pixel object. By accident I discovered an odd workaround: If you select the vector crop tool and crop the pixel object by even some imperceptible amount on one side, suddenly the convert-to-picture-frame menu item does become accessible. Which of these features are by design? Might any of them be bugs? 1. Can't draw a rule (stroke) around a pixel object* 2. Can't convert a pixel object to a picture frame—not immediately. BUT: 3. Slight crop with the vector crop tool enables converting the pixel object to a picture frame * It can be done with the Outline layer effect, but that dialog does not permit enabling square corners (it supports only rounded ones) as far as I know.
  9. Am new to Affinity (brand new, and baby boomer, so you may have to speak slow . Using Publisher, I've created a simple one-page ad, 7.5" x 10"H to print on standard 8.5 x 11 sheet. Outside the margins are overflowing rectangles and other elements that need to be cropped out but need to retain the 1/2" white margin all the way around. Cannot figure this out and have googled best I can. Was told it involved picture frame tool and paste-inside, but...please help. I'm attaching the image so you can see the margins, etc.
  10. Dear all. I need to place approx 1750 images (photographs), 1 per page and control them all via a master page. Is this possible without having to individually place and resize every single one? I will be needing to do this fairly frequently so am hoping Publisher can do this, rather than using InDesign. Then I can edit text, contents, cover pages etc as required, but it means I can output a book as a PDF or for print pretty efficiently. Thanks in advance for you advice. Ian
  11. I have created a table with several columns and rows and would like to insert a full-size image in each cell of the table. Is there any way to do this directly without inserting individual picture frames into each cell?
  12. Hi guys, prior to this problem I could 'Place' an image and add effects from the 'Filters' toolbar but now it's not showing at all. I have just updated to the 1.8 version and this problem started on the older version ( cant say which ) Im a complete novice and would just like to add simple 'blur' to my images like i have been doing for the past year Thanks Steve
  13. I'm putting together a small book of photographs and as a newcomer to Publisher I'm not sure what are considered best practices for working with images. I can give an image a border (a thin rule) whether or not it's in a frame. Then again, I can't seem to assign a style via the Styles palette (specifying a particular rule width and color) to images lacking frames. Using the Styles palette is pretty quick and the results are predictable. I could be missing something here. There might be situations I haven't encountered in which not having a frame would cause problems in the future. What might they be? On the other hand, is using an image frame simply overkill a lot of the time? (If I want to lock the image "in the raw," that's one command within the Layers palette. But if it has a frame, I have to lock the frame and image separately ... somewhat irritating that there's no option to lock both at once as it doesn't seem possible to select both at the same time...or, is it?)
  14. I did a first-time test of the make-collection feature and got quite the surprise. I made a temporary directory of the hard drive. With a small Publisher document open, I selected Document > Resource Manager, selected all image files shown there, and clicked Collect. For the destination I selected the temporary directory and then the collection was made. After checking to ensure that all files appeared in the temporary Collect directory, I removed it. At that moment Publisher announced a loss of linkage to all of the image files in the document. It appears the program had just re-linked all images to the versions that were copied to the Collect subdirectory. (Had I missed an option that specifies: only copy them — don't re-link them?) Then I had to re-link all of them manually to their original location. I'm glad it's a small document. If I had to do that in the document once it's finished, I'd be at it all day as there does not appear to be a way of doing it in a batch (which would make sense if the missing image files were all in the same directory—which, in this case, they were). Restoring the links seems to be a one-file-at-a-time operation. As far as I can tell, Publisher's online help file (the topic on making a collection from the Resource Manager) does not mention the change of linkage in this situation. Is the feature working as designed? The "gotcha" of suddenly changed linkages could be a nasty surprise indeed for the unwary with a large document containing image files residing, originally, in multiple locations.
  15. Hi, I'm working on Windows10 Pro and I simply cannot open any image file in Affinity Photo (current version, German). Nothing happens but the cooler gets louder sometimes. This happens since, I think, version 1.6x. All former versions worked well... very strange... any idea? Thank you!! Joerg
  16. Downloaded Publisher Beta and had a first play with it. Very impressed so far. I have one initial suggestion which I think would help workflow and should be easy to fix. When opening multiple images for placement they are temporarily placed in new 'Place Images' panel next to the Pages and Assets tabs. As soon as an image is selected and placed it disappears from this panel and when a new action is selected the remaining images are removed and the panel disappears. It would be useful to leave all imported images in the Place Images panel permanently,for use throughout the document, until manually deleted when no longer required.
  17. I replaced all images in the folder linked to a project in order to have the linked images in my .apub file replaced. This leads to a prompt where I can decide to search for them or open the resources window with further options. What ever I choose the pictures in the file are updated, which is good. However the program crashes after various durations of time. It would be great if you would fix tihs. (Saving the file with a different name doesn't help.)
  18. Publisher v. 1.7.3.481 on Windows 10 Home, 64-bit. I am producing magazines, importing Word files and/or clean, unformatted text, inserting mainly .jpg files. On several occasions, an inserted or placed image will suddenly not be "reachable", instead being displayed as belonging to a master page. That means that I am no longer able to move, edit, crop, replace or even remove the image. The Layers panel displays the image as belonging to the master page where it should not be. I cannot delete or move it from the Layers panel. The master page itself seems unchanged and OK and does not contain the errant image. The trouble is that it seems to happen randomly even to other - but not all - single images than the one currently being worked on, forcing me to step back and lose any intermediate work done to my whole document. If I discover the problem in time... Here is a screenshot of how the image is shown (on the left) as if on a master page and in the Layers panel under Master page. Also, the text element shown under the image in the Layers panel is also errant as seen in the next screenshot. When opening the original .afpub file, please note that the bridge image on page 18 is an image placed on top of the offending image (my workaraound!) NytOmGammelt2019-04.afpub
  19. I need the ability to automatically change the image to vectors. Designers use pen tools on top of images with poor resolution, not vectors, below them to make them vectors. I think it needs to be automated. In fact, if you take a program that's automated, it's Vector Magic. Even though it is not very accurate, it is very helpful in images that require a lot of vector conversion work. Obviously, if we include this feature in our efficiency, it will be a simple and automated function.
  20. I am thinking of creating a sort of collage of images in an Affinity document. I need three columns with separation lines. I want to ensure that I can use a standard Affinity template and just place three images in the appropriate place and move them around so that they look good together. I want the image to be visible in one column only. I used rectangles and created mask layers under them. However, this does not seem to be fool proof and I run into issues with the center column invariably. Also, I lose the column border. I have attached the afphoto file. Can you suggest a better method to do this? EMW.afphoto
  21. Hello, I am just starting my new Project.. and try to realize it with Affinity Designer... I've tried to rebuild to Elements I have seen on other Watchfaces… because I would like to use them in my own watchface... But unfortunately.. my skills with AD and my creativity ) isn't that good… so Maybe some of you could support me somehow and show me a better way to realize my too Images.. and to help me improve my skills with AD. One is the outer ring (like in the IMG_4816 and the other thing is the "Tag" (or however you would name it).. Thanks in Advance... With Kind regards from Germany...

  22. I am getting some issues with PDF exports when applying Effects (FX) to images under other layers with FX. As you can see from the attached files, the Exported PDF has the bitmap image (with Blur FX applied) 'bleeding' into the effects on higher layers. Once I remove the blur FX from the 'bubbly water' bitmap, the issue disappears. Boiler TEST.afpub Test Export B.pdf Test Export.pdf
  23. I'm new to Affinity and like what I see. This may be a dumb question, but being used to Aperture and then Photos, I could import a card full of images and then work on them one at a time. I have tried selecting multiple images and it just never finishes. I have only been able to do one at a time. Running V1.4.1 Appreciate any help or direction on this. Not successful searching forums and the help files. Thanks, :)
  24. Hello! I'm experiencing a problem with Affinity Publisher 1.7 (launch version no Beta upgrade), using Mac OS Sierra 10.12.6 Last night, I was working on a few opened document within the App (probably not recommended I know!) One of the doc I was working on stopped responding. I could not come back to the Move tool after using Text tool. I did not think too much of it and continued successfully to work on my other docs. I completed some and was able to save, export in PDF without any problem until I came back this morning to work on that still unresponsive doc (after a whole night). Not responding I tried to close it and then the whole program crashed. I reopened Publisher and a popup asked me if to re-open the docs which shut down unexpectedly (sorry I don't have the exact message it displayed) which I accepted. When reopening the docs, one displayed perfectly, one suddenly had an image in black and white and another image missing completely and another much bigger file (with many photos) had all the photos displaying as "inverted", like old negative rolls on old cameras (see image). ALL the photos were like that in the entire doc. When I went to the Resource Manager, it said images were "linked" rather than "embedded", I might have changed that the day before since there were so many photos (I read in another post it might be good to link instead). In there, all thumbnails were exactly like the photos, "inverted". When I went in my computer's folder to link back to the original images, a whole bunch of inverted photos were there as "duplicates" of my original photos and named whatever name Publisher gives it in that manager (file name - #of image)!! Fortunately, my original images are still there! Can you please help me figure out why all my images in an opened document were changed to their "negative" inverted images after the program crashed so it doesn't happen again? and if there is a quicker way to change these images than doing it one by one? Like in InD one can relink 1 image and it will automatically see other images from this same location and ask if you want to re-link other images. But because the names of the images are changed from the originals in Resource Manager, it can't identify them as such. Sorry for my lack of technical jargon and long explanation, as you can probably tell, I'm not a techie nor a graphic designer! So thank you for keeping the answer understandable with very basic terms and clear directions on where to go and what to click The answer might be very simple for all I know Thank you!
  25. Hey everyone! I have a lot of files (right now, 128, but there will be a lot more) from Procreate that need minor editing. I would like to save all .pngs flattened and close all files at once, since at the moment, this takes just about the amount of time that I need for actual editing. It would be great if there was a way to save multiple files in the same manner (for example, flattened) and (or) close them with discarding any unsaved changes. Best wishes, Shu
