  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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?
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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
  7. 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?
  8. 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
  9. 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?)
  10. 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.
  11. 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
  12. 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.
  13. 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.)
  14. 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
  15. 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.
  16. 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
  17. 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...

  18. 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
  19. 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, :)
  20. 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!
  21. 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
  22. Whenever I'm using Outline mode, it's always to trace an image. I prefer to use Outline mode because the "visible stroke" is as fine as it can be, and there are no styles applied (i.e. no fills, strokes, gradients etc). In my opinion (and my usecase of course), having the "Outline" view mode seems incomplete without being able to set an image layer as a background. I don't think every image layer should be visible, but there should be a way to change an image layer's view setting to "Traceable" (or something similar) so it is visible even when in Outline mode. It makes sense for this "traceable" layer to be slightly opaque just so the outline can be clearly seen on top. The opacity could be set on the layer, or it could be set as a global setting (whatever's easier).
  23. I imported a file from my photos folder into Publisher and everything was fine. Printed it all out, worked great. When I went back to the Publisher file today it look extremely pixelated. Can someone help me as to what is going on? I didn't move then image in the Finder (if that even makes any difference.)
  24. Good evening, Whenever I go under the Stock tab to load images, Pexels and Pixabay work fine, but Unsplash displays the error message "Failed to connect" I do not understand why. Is there a solution to remedy this problem? Thanking you
  25. I have problems with the size you get once you prepare a document with images. A ten-page document with images at 300dpi weighs over 180MB, yet the same document in InDesign weighs only 6MB. In both cases the images were linked, but AFPUB seems to include a copy inside the document as well (I'm not embedding). The big question, however, will AFPUB be useful for professional graphic designers to create magazines, catalogues, artbooks, etc., especially when using hi-res images inside (not lo-res web images)? If such is the case, here are a couple issues that need considering: 1. Linking images make the file too heavy. Consider the example I gave above, and then think of an 88 or more pages magazine/book, etc. 2. Not being able to import into a single document other documents prepared separately. Also, although I haven't figured it out yet, can you design a cover, a squarebound one, including the spine? Couldn't find any indication when creating a new document. Seems everythings is for what goes inside and not what covers it.
