  1. 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.
  2. 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?
  3. Using Publisher 1.7.0.249 beta. On a new document with facing pages, I set the margins on the master pages (spread), and applied the master to all pages. The margins propagated nicely to all pages. After a while, working with the page content, the inner margins on the master pages disappeared. (See attachment), but remained on alla normal pages. Reapplying the master on all pages, didn't change anything. The inner margin must be there, but not visible.
  4. Hi there! Most probably this has been reported already, nevertheless: when changing margins on a single spread the respective input fields are called "inner margin" and "outer margin" instead of "left margin" or "right margin". Nothing serious, still... Best, Volker
  5. If I create a new document with margins and change the format again but hold the margins, they will be deactivated and reset zu 0. Easy to reproduce: make a new document with margins an click ok. Then just open the document setup again and click without a change ok. Margins are gone. The bleed stays ... They should stay active if I change something in the document setup. In AD 1.6.x it works.
  6. 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?
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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!
  10. 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
  11. I'm setting up A4 landscape to be folded into 4 pages of A5 portrait. As far as I can make out the procedure is to set the Document settings as A5 portrait, and when ready to print, print as Booklet onto A4 landscape. Setting up the margins of the A5 document, I click Printer Settings. On my printer the Bottom is a lot wider than Top, Left and Right. Publisher sets the bottom of the A5 page to the wide margin. I need the wide margin on the trailing edge of the A4, not the bottom of the A5. There is also an oddity about the printout. The outside pages are printed with the top of the A5 pages on the left, the inside pages with the top of the A5 pages on the right. Once one knows one can feed the second side in accordingly, but I wonder whether there is a setting to adapt this.
  12. 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.....
  13. 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.
  14. Toggling the visibility of margins, guides and frame edges is something that designers working by eye need do be able to do easily. Publisher has a keyboard shortcut for guides, but this doesn't affect the visibility of margins (in ID, the same shortcut toggles both simultaneously). To toggle the visibility of margins requires a separate operation involving manual selection in the View menu. This seems unduly cumbersome, so it would be good if there were a keyboard shortcut for this. Having for years had the visibility of margins and guides governed by the same ID keyboard shortcut, I have never myself encountered any reason for them to be treated separately; a margin is, after all, a kind of guide. As for frame edges, which admittedly are something else, their visibility in Publisher seems to be governed only by the hand tool, which Publisher unusually calls the 'View tool' (when this tool is selected, frame edges disappear ). This can be activated with the tool palette shortcut keystroke-H, and deactivated with another toolbox shortcut, such as Keystroke-T (one of the text tools) or Keystroke-V (the 'Move tool' - dark arrow). But if you happen to be keying in or editing text in a text frame, you obviously can't use these simple alphabetic keystrokes - unless you come out of your editorial operation first, they will just add a T or a V to your text content, and the ESC key seems not to get you out of this for some reason. The combination of an alphanumeric key with a modifier key would be a more convenient way of toggling frame edge visibility. Louismac
  15. Suggest better/more intuitive layout of Margin controls and Text Wrap controls if the Top, Bottom, Left, Right fields are placed visually in their logical positions, eg Top at top, Bottom underneath (rather than as now in two columns.......eek! which/where do I look for rapid adjustment). Even the old Quark XP single-column layout of these fields (Top, Bottom, Left, Right) is better than two columns. Small, but important, for those habitually using these controls.
  16. Apologies if I'm missing something obvious, I've been through the tutorials and can't see what I'm doing wrong. When I start a new document and I set a margin, I can't see how I go back later to vary or delete the margin I initially set. The 'Document Setup' tab on the left has no options to look at margins. It looks like I have to delete the page and start again. Any ideas? Steve.
  17. The margins on the document are set to 5mm but on the artboard/page show at 6mm?
  18. I frequently use artboards to create multi-page documents within AD. Could newly inserted document sized artboards inherit the existing document margins by default? Currently… Create a new document, with margins. Use Artboard tool to convert document to an artboard (Size: Document > Insert Artboard) The margins disappear, and must be created again.

    Tiny bugs in Designer

    Hi there! While working on a brochure I encountered some problems with the export function of Designer (1.6.4.104 on Windows) and the creation of new documents: Sometimes layer masks of embedded photos (.afphoto) are not honoured when exported to pdf (if a sample file is needed, please let me know). I had inserted an image that was edited in Photo before (added a mask layer in order to hide parts of the image). While the screen displayed the image in Designer correctly the exported pdf showed the image as if the mask layer was ignored. I was able to solve the issue by rasterizing the image in question before exporting it to pdf. However, the should not be necessary, should it? Settings for margins are ignored if the option „create artboard“ is set when a new document is created. This applies to the first artboard as well as all others created at a later stage. Perhaps not a bug but an inconvenient behaviour: If you copy several artboards and create a new document from clipboard afterwards, the objects of the copied artboards are inserted in one large document instead of a document with several artboards. Best, Volker
  20. This problem still exists, even on the latest 1.6.4.104 release. I'm having trouble working around for multiple art-boards each time I open the document. I have posted a video to explain what's troubling me. As you can see, this problem is only with the art-boards. And also, the values once entered in the document creation window is stored in the document setup field and it doesn't update at all. Please watch the video to understand the issue more clearly. Please solve this issue soon. Thank you!
  21. Add options in the print dialog to set the size of the output image and the margins.
  22. Hi. Firstly - AFFINITY is AWESOME. Very happy with it; but now I'm having a bit of difficulty. I'm trying to export an 8.5"x11" image with a 1/4" bleed... I can't seem to get the print marks to go "inside" the border for bleed trimming. I'm somewhat new to this particular avenue of design - maybe I'm missing something? I watched a really good tutorial about this online, but I tried exactly the same steps and it doesn't yield the same results. Any suggestions? I'm really stumped. I bought the workbook, and it's great, but this is the one area where they don't seem to go into enough detail... Thanks, Jon

    Working with margins

    Hi, I don't know if this is a bug but I will state it here anyhow: When working with margins, after I add the information I want and press OK, if I want to return and modify for example the top margin, I need to input all the other values again since it resets all the information. wouldn't be better to keep the information from the margins used in the artwork for user only to change what they want? best regards, Luis
  24. Reading over the list, this might have been touched on before... When I create a new document, and have margins to be included, and show margins active in the new document, they aren't there. Toggling the "view Margins" menu command has no effect. Also, with snap to margins enabled, when not visible, there is no snapping. I've found that if I attempt to drag a guide from the rulers, the margins pop into view, and work as expected.
  25. Is there any way to add an outer margin to grids in Affinity Designer latest 1.5.2.58? I have a 1440 pixels grid setup and I just want to add like 30 pixels of outer margin to each side and shift the start point of the grid over with it. Any way to do this using the Grid and Axis Manager or some other way?
