  1. I have put a picture frame on a page and dropped an image into it but after adjusting part of the image is not appearing. first photo shows the image after being dropped in to the frame. second photo shows the complete image in affinity photo. second image shows image adjusted to fit the frame at the top but the bottom of the image is missing. I have set the frame back to default still does the same thing. Never had this happen before.
  2. Hi guys, First of all - big thank you for: IDML support, New Document dialog, Preflight Check and Smart Object. Brilliant, brilliant things. Now for the things that need to be updated or changes or fixed: Distance between objects: I noticed you made a little change to the displaying the distance between objects. However many times it is still cover by the top handling line and the numbers cannot be seen. And also - since this update I am unable to see the distance between any two objects next to each other. For example - I have a text box, under which is a picture frame, then another text box, line divider and another text box. And when moving the top text box, instead of showing the distance between that box and the picture frame, it shows the distance to the next text box. Which doesn't make sense to me. I absolutely need to be able to see the distance while moving the certain elements. (under snapping I have everything enabled for all the layers - except for Force Pixel Alignment). Am I missing something here? Preferences: still a big mess unfortunately. Especially the Search feature. Which doesn't work at all. There is a lenghty post on this topic already somewhere here and nothing has changed since tha post yet.... Escape & Transform panel: When making changes in Transform panel, like changing the size of the element or changing its position, and I press Escape, it should definitely take me back to the canvas to the Move tool. I am using keyboard shortcuts whenever possible and I move elements many many times by using keyboard arrows. When I make a size change in the Transform panel and then press Escape, I would expect that I will be able to use arows to further move the element. But the cursor stays in the Transform panel and arrows will only change whatever value is there - angle, position etc... I have to click inside the canvas to get out of the Transform and use the Move tool again. On all the screenshots you can see the problem related to the objects' distances. On two screenshots you also see the problem with the distance number not fully visible. What would help here would be either the numbers nex to the line and not directly on it. Or - which is a better solution I think - displying the number horizontaly next to the line.
  3. Hello, how can I forget / reset the rotation of an object? Once the object is rotated it remembers it's original 0° rotation, which is mostly useful. E.g. if i rotate a shape in Publisher > convert to Picture Frame > Place an Image … the placed image is also rotated. Is there any way to rotate an object and afterwards reset it's rotation to 0°. Thank you in advance!
  4. Publisher Beta 1.8.0.523 I have placed a picture frame on a master page with the property »None. The picture will not be scaled.« The behavior of the picture frame is correct if you open the picture frame with the mouse immediately to the correct size. The image is placed in the original size in the frame. But if I change the size of the picture frame again after opening the first time, it will no longer behave correctly. For example: I open the picture frame with the mouse and then I set the size exactly in the transform panel. Now by placing an image the size and even the proportions of the picture change.
  5. I have been playing around trying to figure out how to convert some InDesign documents to Publisher. Although the conversion works really quite well, there are certainly some bugs, especially with placed images. I got frequent crashes when replacing images, and they are generally not correctly sized and sometimes squished. Now that I had set up the spread as I wanted, I wanted to test if it would work in a real world situation: I have the same basic spread but the content (graphs, tables etc.) have to be changed. What I ran into immediately is that Publisher does not retain the customized placement of the image when I replace it. I replaced both Designer files as well as EPS files, but in both cases I have to manually rescale and position the image each time. The files that I replace the images with are exactly the same dimensions, so this can not be the problem. It just seems to reset the picture frame each time. This is of course very annoying and gives a lot of unneccesary work. Is this some kind of bug, as I can not see why this would be intended behaviour?
  6. When I copy a picture frame with linked images I can see the entry in the Resource manager gets another line. The frames now work like clones, impossible to link a new picture to the new frame, because it will always re-link the picture in all frames. Is there a way to copy a frame without this behaviour? Or do I have to create an entirely new one from scratch for each picture?
  7. Is there a way to resize an already cropped image in a Picture frame? In Indesign it is just holding ⌘-shift. In Publisher you'd expect just holding ⌘ would do it.
  8. I have an automatic process where I pass a parameter into crystal reports, it will create a chart and print a pdf file. I do this every month for maybe a hundred different parameters. For a landscape piece of paper, the chart that is created takes up the top left quadrant and everything else is whitespace. I need to import just the image -- eliminating the white space. Indesign had a feature called "crop to bounding box". You got there by selecting the import options checkbox when placing the pdf file. This would do what I needed -- cropped the document to just the image and place it within the picture frame. I'm trying to see if publisher can do the same thing. When I place the image and double click on it, I get the page box in the context toolbar that has several choices -- one of which is trimbox another is cropbox. If I then go to edit document, I see the image with blue lines around it -- giving the impression the image would be cropped. But I have not been able to figure out how to actually crop it and then transfer the image into the picture frame. The approach I'm using seems like the "right" approach but I'm missing some details. Perhaps there is alternative way to do this within the file/place process -- similar to the crop to the bounding box approach. Thanks for any inut. Greg
  9. This problem has been around all through the Beta and now in the latest version 1.7.3. Mac OS X 10.13.6. It may well be an unavoidable problem due to its nature. If you are using a 2-page spread and you are using many "layers" of images and text on many pages (background image at 'back', text and picture frames in front of that, master page data with Section Names and Page #s, Section Names set for specific page ranges, etc.) then you can't just delete a single page and add it somewhere else without losing the registration of pages that follow the deletion and the addition. The deletion causes every page to move "up" changing the recto and verso pages to the opposite types and much more: Master Page data (left and right, left only, right only, none) - can shift to a master that is on the next page/prior page The "layers" of frames and pictures on a page will get jumbled (background image is at front instead of at back, often, hiding the text and photos beneath). This part has to be a "real" bug as the position of an object back-to-front on a page should never change because it has moved to a different side of a spread. I reported this specifically during Beta. Section naming can get shifted by one page. If you add in a page somewhere else, after deleting one, you still have the problems as they don't repair themselves. The way around this is to ONLY add or delete pages in sets of two. In my case, I wanted to take the first recto page, delete it and move it to the end of the document as a verso page. This shifted the entire document and then it exhibited the problems I outlined. Instead, I added a single page at the end (verso) then copied the first (recto) page to that last page. This left at the start of the document, in order, one recto followed by a 2-page spread. On that 2-page spread I cut the items from the recto (page 3) and copied them to the recto (page 1). This left a single 2-page spread (pages 2 and 3) entirely empty and I deleted those 2 pages without any of the problems creeping into the document. So, I just want to ask if it's possible to somehow ask AFPUB to be "smart" about that whole "deletion of single page" scenario - which would make the process much smoother, quicker, and easier. I think it would require internally reassigning the masters, sections, etc., as pages move up or down the spreads.
  10. Hello I am working with pdfs and want to have a transparent colored object above it. The pdf are mostly transparent but have some white areas in it. The colored object is displayed differently on white planes or on transparent areas. The results also varie depending on how I placed it. I expect all white colored areas to be the same color in the blue rectangle. picture frame and transparancy.afpub
  11. Hello, I placed an image in a picture frame but now I want to remove it (not replace it). I searched for a while but couldn't find anything. Any suggestions? Thanks!
  12. Want some feedback on whats normal behavior when working with linked docs in Affinity Publisher (Windows). I created a doc that contained playing cards (85 pages) in Publisher uses about (2 GB RAM when open). However to be useful i needed to stitch then together into sheets. So i created a second Publisher doc to do this. Created frames for each card and clicked away. The thing is... Publisher started to use about 8 GB of system RAM (only that file open). Is that normal or could it be a bug?
  13. Mac Publisher beta #292 I've been exploring Publishers handling of images. I created a test page, added an image and selected Convert to Picture Frame. This worked as expected. I decide I no longer wanted the picture frame so went back to the contextual menu to look for a "Remove Picture Frame" option, which does not appear to be an option. So out of curiosity I selected Convert to Text Frame, which crashes Publisher every time. My questions: Does an option to "Remove Picture Fame" make sense? And shouldn't "Convert to Text Frame" be grayed out? Is there ever a time when a Picture Frame would be converted to a Text Frame? Just being curious. Convert to Picture Frame.mp4
  14. I like to have an option on a Picture Frame that ensures that the images inside cannot leave the picture frames borders. This is the default behavior of several software like Serif PagePlus X9, Xara Designer Pro X and a couple of end user photobook creation software. Picture Frames now work like in InDesign and I acknowledge that some people want/need it that way. This idea is about giving an option to change it for those who are familar or can better work with the other behavior. For a better understanding what I'd like to have please see the attached short video demonstrations. xara_designer_pro_x.mp4 rossmann.mp4 pixum.mp4 --- And for those who are not familar with InDesign an additional video of the behavior that seemingly inspired the way it's working today in Publisher: indesign.mp4
  15. Hello, When I place a picture frame and "place" an image into the frame, the image is scaled in proportion when I drag the anchors around. When I place a picture and "move" the layer "into" a picture frame, the image is not scaled inproportion when I drag the anchors around. The "properties" menu in the picture frame does not help with constraining the image to scaled/unscaled proportions. (BTW: The "done" and "cancel" buttons are way off in that menu) Is that an error? I think this is not logical, as I often place an image and realize later that I want a certain shape or frame to limit the extents of the image.
  16. Windows 10 Home 1809, Publisher 1.7.0.257. I have a simple 8-page A4 facing-spread document. I have 4 small images - total size on disk 136kB - to add as page backgrounds (the same image on the first and last page, different images across the other spreads). When I add the images as Image layers to the document and export as PDF I get a PDF that is 98.8kB in size. That looks fine and dandy. However, when I add the images as Picture Frame layers, and export with exactly the same options, I get a PDF that is 2.1MB in size. That's way bigger. Does anyone know what's happening and why? Am I doing something wrong? I can attach the documents and/or PDFs if necessary. P.S. Both of the afpub files are 1.85MB in size, which also seems a little large, considering, but I guess that's a different issue.
  17. I recently purchased the Affinity Designer and love the ease of use. I've been using the indesign for the past 10 years. It would be very helpful to have a "Picture Frame" tool, like the one on the Affinity Publisher.
  18. Hy, I updated my AP today and now I have crashes nearly all the time I want to convert a picture frame into curves. In this document I need to rotate the frame and then I want to cut a corner and use (on the right layer) the combi " apple and enter". And then it crash most the time -.-
  19. When you place an image directly on the canvas, the slider for opacity works as it should. However, when placing an image inside a picture frame, the slider has no effect. When you open the downward triangle to reveal the picture placed within the frame, opacity change is not available. Either this is a bug or it makes the excellent picture frame tool a lot less useful.
  20. As somebody who designs a lot of photo zines, a feature I would request is the ability to create a picture frame in my masterpage with the desired size etc. and fill it individually for each page that is based on this master page. This would make a huge difference when designing picture-heavy stuff like I do most of the time! Even though Publisher is already a very good program and very easy to use.
  21. A few months ago, my employer (a "mom and pop" frame store that, among other things, produce their own frames) asked me to dig up an image, put on the logo, the website and the frame size and create what he called a "face paper" for our locally produced frames. So I dug up a photograph of a fox I took five years ago at a park and did just that. The art boards came in handy, but this type of job feels like something I should have done in InDesign or the upcoming Publisher. This is the result.
