  1. I have "Master A" and "Master B". I duplicate "Master A" and a new master page gets name "Master B", but there is already "Master B". It should be called "Master C" or "Master A-1", otherwise I have two master pages with the same name and it’s not a duplicated one. It may get confusing when masters looks similar, because it will look like I duplicated "Master B" not "Master A".
  2. I changed the font of some text fields in the master (the whole field, not inside the field). My document has already 16 pages, all referring to this master, but the copy text was already inserted. Now I changed the font in the master, and thought that the font change will affect all layout pages (at least those where I did not explicitly change the font within the text field). But this did not work. If I re-apply the master, all my copy text in the 16 pages is set back to the text of the master! Am I missing something?
  3. If you change the displayed/active artboard of a multi artboard Designer file placed on a master page, this change won't be reflected on regular pages. It always shows the artboard that was first visible upon placing the file. It's possible this also happens with other types of multipage documents (Affinity Photo, PDFs) but I only tested with Designer files. Steps to reproduce: Open Affinity Designer Create a new document with 2 Artboards Draw a purple circle on the first artboard and a blue square in the second, just so they're instantly recognizable Save it somewhere, you can now close Designer, it won't be used anymore Create a new Publisher file, check Default Master so a master page is already applied to any pages added Add a few pages to the document, let's say 6, just so the issue is more evident Double click Master A in the Pages panel so you can add elements to it Place the Designer document you saved on step 4, by default it should show the first artboard, the purple circle Notice the purple circle is correctly displayed on all pages where the Master A is applied Back on the Master A, select the placed file and use the context toolbar to change to the second artboard You should now see the blue square on the master page as expected Notice that the blue square is not being shown on the pages where the master is applied, instead you continue to see the purple circle This is not just a visual bug, if you export a PDF all pages will indeed have the purple circle instead of the blue square Thanks!
  4. I have master pages with a table. Pages have master applied and then custom information input on them. Discovered error on table ( an extra line on the border on a few cells) I edit the Master but the page does not update. If I clear the master (and lose the custom info I've input) and re-apply it is fine. Is there a proper procedure to force refresh pages with masters applied without losing the custom text I've input? Unchecking "replace" existing creates a bolded effect on the whole page. Update 1: Fiddled more and its as if a large chunk of my pages lost their "link" to their master. So when Master is updated nothing updates on the page. My current doc the 1st 2 pages update but the subsequent pages do not. I manually updated 30 of my pages so far by clearing and reapplying master but this cannot be the only way to "refresh" the links. Cannot reproduce the issue yet on another. Update 2: Updated to 1.7.2 still same issue Update 3: Side note that when I duplicate a master that has already been renamed - the duplicate has the exact same name as the original -- seems it would be useful that the duplicate indicates COPY or other indicator so that the wrong master is not edited by accident. If you do not rename the Master it does change the Name for example I just created Master X and when duplicating it made Master Y. Update 4: I had a thought to create an additional master that had all my workbook text in it, then overlay (by not replacing existing master) on the 1st master on each page, which would allow me to quickly "re-apply" the necessary master to fix my original issue, so I created a new master and created a few dummy "Options" in my layers (Option 1, Option 2, Option 3) to enable as needed once applied to the appropriate page. However once this new master is applied to the page I am unable to change the options as they are greyed out and seems to be permanently locked. So thats a no go at this moment. Thanks!
  5. Windows 10 Home 1903, Publisher 1.7.2.471. This is a bit of a weird one and probably won’t come up in normal use but I thought I’d mention it. Edit: “Problem” fixed. It wasn’t a problem, just me not knowing what I was doing. See posts below for an explanation. I have a document where I added some basic text and a blue rectangle to the default master spread. Then I went to the normal page and edited the master spread ‘detached’ and changed the blend mode of the text to Erase. Then I went back to the master spread and gave the text an Outer Glow. I then went back to the normal page and added two new rectangular layers. Then I moved the master spread layer above the two rectangles and I am now in the position you see my GIF (AFPUB also attached). The Erase mode of the detached text – which is still attached to the master spread size/position-wise – knocks out the colour of the yellow and green rectangles as expected but the glow is still drawn below the two coloured rectangles. This doesn’t seem right to me. Surely the master spread layers and their related effects should be drawn within the sequence defined by the Layers panel. (The blue rectangle is fine and seems to be drawn as it should be.) Is this a bug or am I missing something? effects-always-drawn-first.afpub
  6. Hello, shouldn't the master page apply any changes to the rest of the document that I have previously applied it? I have this document with 50 pages and applied the master on them on creation, but after I changed the master page I had to go and left click on a random page-> apply master to all Isn't linked the whole time? Sound like a pain if you have a multi masters document if you have to go find each one of the pages the master is applied to change it.
  7. Hi ! I am a newbie. Is there a way to have a file of personal Master pages usable in any document ? So that I do not have to recreate over and over the same Master page. Thanks
  8. I started with A4 page size in the Master. After creating some 12 pages I decided to change to 12" x 12". So I changed the Master to those dimensions. No matter how I did it, I could not get that change "applied" to any of the following pages (context menus "Apply to" at the Master itself, and context menus at each page or multiple pages). I had to manually change the "old" pages to the new size. After making the change to the Master all "add"ed pages have the correct size. Maybe I'm missing something?
  9. I have two Publisher documents that I would like to merge, or certain pages (a whole document of regular pages, master pages or any variation) that I'd like to add / import from one into the other document. Again, any variation on it being a full Publisher document, a PDF or just master pages, but I'd like some way to re-use master pages without having to do a document A copy, open Document B to paste, then back to Document A to copy next master and back to Document B to paste ... times however many master pages etc that I have. Thanks!
  10. First post. Greetings! Generally, the folks at Serif should think long and hard if they want to create an Indesign clone, or rethink the way books, brochures etc are being designed. There are some things Indesign does incredibly well, and master pages are one of them. SUGGESTIONS: 1: One thing I like in particular is the ability to "transfer" objects placed on the master page for editing on the page itself via Shift-Cmd-Click. Otherwise one is limited to how the master page has been set up. EDIT: Ignore. I noticed that this is possible as the master page objects become accessible on their own layer. Well done! 1a: The master key objects become accessible on the page through a separate layer, but this then applies to all the pages using that particular master page. One should be able to disconnect the objects from the master page, so that they become independent and editable. 2: Many other suggestions like anchors, improved and automatic text flow between text boxes have already been made. That applies to the master page, too. If I create linked text boxes on the master page, they should become "hot" on the actual page, so that I can just paste long text into it. 3: Another thing is text variables. There are some already, although a bit obscure under Studio > Fields, but they should be made more prominent and extended to allow the user to set up his/her own. 4: What I like about Indesign is the placement of page guides, because I get an input box where I can set the exact location of the guide. Yes, there's the Guides Manager, but that's another window on the screen. It would be nice if selecting or dragging a new guide would show its position right on the status bar at the bottom or somewhere at the top. Indesign solves this elegantly. EDIT: That's solved. A popup shows the exact location. 5: Indesign also has a good if somewhat awkward way of handling tabs, showing a tab bar above the text. Perhaps a fixed tab bar (toggleable) can be placed right ontop of the text frame, so that one can easily place and adjust the tabs, the indents etc. EDIT: That's solved, too. Frame Text Ruler. BAM! Awesome! BUGS: 1: The way adding tab stops works is buggy, and not properly thought-out, although the idea of incrementing it has merit. The preset (in my case 10mm) is only applied the second time. The first one is still the old setting, in my case 8mm. The question is whether this should be relative or absolute needs to be answered, because if I put in 8mm, I mean 8mm, not 8mm from the last tab stop. Perhaps it's better to add a second button for this purpose. EDIT: The bug with the wrong units ONLY applies to a manual input/change of the unit. If you click on the arrows, all is fine. 2: Please have a look at the Guides, because I had created one, but that didn't show up in the Guides Manager. Only after selecting it, it became visible in the Guides Manager. That's just a brief feedback after installing Publisher last night. Can't wait for the final release, and with it the possibility of dumping Adobe's products. Never liked them as a company, although Indesign is a fantastic product. Affinity Publisher is on the right track, and I for instance would pay a lot more than just $45.00 for a finished product that equals or surpasses Indesign. Cheers, Helmar
  11. 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.
  12. If I change the DPI of the documente, the text alignment and the text size of the master pages also change only in the child pages.
  13. I have found that it is impossible to apply a master to just a single page of a two page spread. Whichever way I have tried, Publisher applies the master to both pages. I have tried: Dragging and dropping (my preferred method) Right clicking on the page and choosing 'apply master' and choosing to apply the master to just the single page Are there other ways that I haven't tried? Is there a work around to this?
  14. 231/5000 I can define several master pages for one document page. However, I have not found a way to delete a single master page in a multi-master page document page. All master pages in a document page are always deleted.
  15. Loving it so far - are there any plans to add in document or Master page column guides? I know one can use normal guides, but it requires a lot of maths to work out a 12 column grid for example. As an old-school print designer, I rely heavily on a column grid as a basis of every single design, so it's quite a big deal. Thanks! Andy
  16. I found quite serious bug that makes Levels unusable for non-Master channels. Layer > New Adjustment Layer > Levels Adjustment [Ctrl+L] Change channel to anything but Master. (Colorspace doesn't matter) Change any value (Black Level, White Level or Gamma) using slider or input box. (After inputting value you have to lost focus from the current input box, e.g. by clicking mouse outside the input box or by pressing Tab.) You're seeing unwanted switch to Master channel. Affinity Photo 1.5.1.54, Windows 7 Pro x64, non-HiDPI laptop display [1600x900]
  17. Hi, I like to correct single colors with "Tonwertkorrektur", by choosing RGB and then one single color. After then, if I move any slider, the button jumps back to Master. (I use Win 10, vers. 1607). Many thanks for help or information Manfred
