  1. Affinity Designer Version 1.7.1.1 iPad Pro 12,9 inch first generation, iOS 12.3.1 I added screen recordings for clarity. Problem 1: Margin and bleed not working for artboards Margins and bleed work perfect for documents that do not use artboards, but when I convert it to an artboard using "Insert Artboard" it stops working. Same goes for creating a document and enabling the option "Create Artboard". Bleed still shows, but changing the values for Left, Right, Top or Bottom doesn't change the bleed. When opening the menu again the values are back to what they were before using "Insert Artboard". Margins also don't work, it goes back to Left 0.0 Right 0.0 Top 0.0 and Bottom 0.0. Trying to change this makes it immediately jump back to 0.0. margin_bleed_artboard.MP4 Problem 2: "Check Spelling While Typing" option is always on when loading any document check_spelling_while_typing.MP4 Problem 3: Limited selection of presets for inserting artboards in an open document It looks like the artboard presets of the category "Device". However, the bottom four options are also missing: Kindle Fire HD 7, Kindle Fire HD 8.9, Galaxy S5 and Surface Pro 2. There is an option missing for selecting the category like when creating a new document. It seems that this simply has been overlooked. insert_artboard.MP4
  2. My wife & I purchased the entire Affinity Suite to save us the headaches we encountered from Word+PDF on KDP/CreateSpace when creating her full-color art tutorial books (sample book here: https://oksanaball.com/books/ or https://amzn.to/2T0Y1Nh ). We liked Affinity Publisher's templates for image layout and placement along with the ability to easily insert automatic fancily formatted image numbers (Word's formatting is impossible for this). These art books are generally laid out as facing pages with text on one side and a bunch various placements of images on the other. We are currently trying to write her next book in AP and are having issue with margins, gutters, and templates. I have configured a facing-page master layout using a large background image across the facing pages and the headers for left and right side pages being different. Then, we apply a single page template to the left or right side depending on if we need a page with text-only, multiple images, "zoomed" images, staggered step images, "tips", etc. Sometimes, the images appear on left, sometimes on right, sometimes on both - thus single page templates are nicer to work with. Where I am running into issues is with the gutters - I need different margins depending on left or right side. I could create two sets of image page templates, but there has to be an easier way that having both "four images, left side" and "four images, right side". I have attached a screen shot from KDP's preview that shows how our one-page template containing four images violates the gutter. Is there a way to create a single-page template which "anchors" itself to the outer margin? I tried creating a slightly narrower "spread" which I hoped I could shift left or right, but that doesn't work for me. I could not seem to find this type of solution in the forums or tutorials and I would love for someone to point me in the right direction. I'm willing to share apub template file example if that helps. Thanks. -j
  3. 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.
  4. Hi. Whenever I create a new document, I define margins in the new document dialog and activate the "include margins" option, but the document is always created with the margins not included. I must go to Document setting and activate it manually again (Curiously, the margins size I defined before are retained, it is only that the margins are not included). Silly bug, not a big nuisance, just to let you know. Have a nice weekend!
  5. I think I may found a bug concerning margins on making a new master page. Please repeat the steps. 1. Make a new master page. While the dialogue prompt comes up specify the following margins (as an example with page/document size of 1080 x 1920) Left: 120 px Right: 120 px Top: 250 px Bottom: 250 px Click OK. You will notice the bug, such that the margin specifications for "Left" and "Top" seems to be switched. To fix this, you'll have to go into Guides and fix the "switch" between "Left" and "Top." Once you press OK, you'll see the intended margins aforementioned. I was able to verify the bug by making another master page and purposely substituting "Top" margin as "Left" and vice versa. Once you OK, you'll see this new, master page looking as correct and intended and going into Guides Manager, you'll see the margins correctly correspond as intended.
  6. I've been having trouble indenting number lists. However, with perseverance I found a 'text ruler' that does the job perfectly. Just putting this post up to help anyone else who's wondering how to adjust margins, without playing around with the text box. File attached. Don't forget to update the style. Great feature thank you Serif! Number List and Indent.afpub
  7. When one tries to adjust the size of the margins and column gutter within the "Guides Manager" window one is capped at 400px. The problem seem to be limited only to that window, as one is able to exceed the limit (at least for the margins) by using the "Document Setup" window instead. OS: Windows 10 Version: Designer 1.8
  8. 1. Draw a text frame with the Frame Text tool. 2. Type some text into the frame. Make it short enough not to force the line to wrap. 3. With the cursor to the right of the right-most character, press and hold the space bar to insert multiple spaces. Result: Eventually the cursor advances past the right edge of the text frame and keeps heading to the right—until you type a non-space character. Then the line wraps. Not that anyone would likely do this as part of creating a document...but it does seem anomalous. : ) (Hoping the screen-shot upload works this time.)
  9. Hi people, Where does the document paper size come from, when one is setting up a new document? I have an image to help make sense out of my question. I'm trying to set up a pair of 5x7 or A5 images, on a sheet of letter ANSI A paper. This is a very long document that I want to print on both left and right text boxes on both sides of the paper. It's pretty much like a newspaper layout except for the sizes. Would it be better to use the "book" setting? I have attached a screencap of what I see after setting up the document in "new". I don't understand where the dimensions under "custom" came from. They are larger than expected, sometimes much larger. Any suggestions and clarification welcome! James
  10. I have been making Greeting Cards in Serif Page Plus for over 15 years. I keep trying to switch to Affinity Publisher, but even creating my own two templates: sidefold and topfold, the margins .5" all around are 1/8" wider on right side and smaller on left. I did change the margins to .6" on one side and .3" on the other so they come out all .5". The page size is 7"x10" which my printer does easily and Affinity seems to agree to but it's just the margins. Problem #2 - The artistic text - which is beautiful - has a white film on the text box. White on white wouldn't show but with Greeting Cards, the text is usually on a nature photo, like the sea or mountains, and it is very obvious. I think (actually hope) both problems are simple glitches that can be corrected? Sister Regina Dierson
  11. I have tried everything i have found to make my margins come back. I have checked and unchecked and rechecked again the Show Margins command. Margins were there when I first opened the document this morning. Then suddenly they disappeared. Nothing I have found seems to answer the question. In fact, the only show command that seems to work is Show Grid. When I double or triple click in a text box nothing happens until i toggle preview mode. What have I done wrong? Help!
  12. I am attempting to adjust a document from single to facing pages. Currently, the document uses a single master page. However, once I switch the document and the master page from single to facing, I am finding a series of issues: Each spread now contains two copies of the master page The master spread continues to behave like a single page instead of two facing pages The margins on the master spread act as if the spread is a single page, without an inner margin Columns layout treat the whole spread as a single page I am using Affinity Publisher 1.7.1.404 on Windows in the office (HOK)
  13. Is there any way of reproducing the layout of an artboard so that I can produce a 24 page document without having to set up the margins and guides on each artboard?
  14. Vertical Guides are being created in other artboards,... and i can't move them. Can't change position value. This is a recorrent bug in other tools envolving guides, column, margins.
  15. When creating a new document with margins and change some settings in 'Document setup...' the 'include Margins' option becomes unchecked, so that we lose the margins, even when rechecking 'include Margins'. Only reentering the margins will work.
  16. This happens to me in a MacOS 10.14.5 and latest version iPad Pro. If i don't select the margins while creating a new document, i can't create them in the Guides Manager. If i use margins while creating a new document, i can't modify it in the Guides Manager. Sometimes i can see the baseline grid,... sometimes not. I need to restart designer in order to see them.
  17. Hi, is there any way to keep distance between two or more objects, when I am transforming them? It would be very usable in UI design. Im talking about situation, when i have fixed width container and want to put in it 4 elements with 30px gap between them. Now, when i want to transform that group of 4 elements, they change width, but margin between them will keep that 30px. To be clear - i don't talk about auto distribute feature - i know about it, but it affects gaps width only, not objects themselfs.
  18. I just downloaded the Beta, this is the first time I ever use an Affinity product, but I'm planning on buying them soon. I really liked publisher and all, but as of my first time using it, I found a few things missing that could benefit the user (I probably just missed some options for this, but still wanted to share). - Text Wrap Preview: The only way to preview it is watching the text around an image for example move along when you increase the size of it, but it would be nice to have a little guide preview at all times around the image or graphic. -Guides Manager | Margins: The guides manager is great but a little thing I noticed is the margins section, doesn't have a link option, so you have to enter each number individually, again, a little thing that could help. -Hidden Characters: I just couldn't find a feature like this, if it is not there, I think it should because it's a great tool when working with a lot of text.
  19. I want to print 4 pages of A5 on one A4 sheet, so the A4 will be landscape but printed on a printer that prints A4 portrait. The trailing edge needs to be 16mm, the other edges 3mm. Using Facing Pages, Publisher allows me to set the outside margins at 16mm, but I will only want 16mm for the right-hand margin of the right-hand pages. The left-hand margin of left-hand pages needs to be 3mm. Is there a way of doing this? If not, can you please add the facility to the Facing Pages section?
  20. I am well aware that I can set Margins when I created a new document and then change Margins after the fact by digging down into the Master page "Spread Properties." But is there a good reason why there is no conveniently accessible "Margins" command in the Document menu? That menu would be the most logical and intuitive place to find it. InDesign has "Margins and Columns..." in their Layout men, so anyone can easily find it without brainstorming or reading a manual, and I would argue a menu command is faster to access than (1) finding the Master, (2) right-clicking on the Master, (3) and then Choosing "Spread Properties." Thanks.
  21. Hi, The publisher is an amazing program. I just made the first project. Working on tables is a fairy tale. So far, I've noticed one problem. The margins on the master page set in the whole document, after reopening, reset to the default settings. Only on pages, the Master page remains unchanged.
  22. When printing in Designer I find that even if I use the exact same settings for margins when printing, I can print a number of pages that are the same but if I come back to it at another time the margins will not be the same. This is extremely frustrating as I am trying to print booklets that must align. At first I thought it was my printer a Fuji Docuprint laser but it is the same for my new Brother laser printer. I am never sure where the image is going to come out on the paper!
  23. I'm confused by this first "New Document" screen. I am delighted to see the Facing pages view. Thank you! I ticked Facing pages setup. Top margin selection boxes say Left and Right. Bottom set, Inner and Outer. I assumed this is where I could set a binding gutter for my facing pages. I hope I am right. However, these controls seem to control top and bottom margins, and I see no adjustment for different inner and outer margins for a binding allowance. Toggling "Facing pages" box to off resets these bottom boxes to read Top and Bottom. Occasionally those bottom boxes give a tool tip for Top and Bottom margins even with the Facing Pages box ticked and the boxes titled Inner and Outer. I do need different inner and outer adjustable margins for binding gutter allowance. Is the Facing pages Inner and Outer not completely implemented yet? In Facing pages setup, if the bottom boxes are to be used for Inner and Outer, how would I then set Top and Bottom? Wouldn't it be better to toggle Left and Right with Inner and Outer, and leave the Top and Bottom set alone? Thanks.....
  24. So far I have seen only two bugs. Some times it's not possible to select text in a text frame. I have to change to another tool and go back to the text frame, then it works fine again. And the issue with margins in Masterpages, covered in other threads. I love to work in Publisher and will definitely buy it when released.
