Hi I'm a new user to Affinity Publisher and my first project has been, somewhat ambitiously, to try to format a 300 page book 🙂 I've managed to create a master page, auto flow the text across it, formatted the text in each chapter and Place the images in the text. When I've come to add the front matter pages, though, I've realised that I need to pin the images to the text to avoid them getting separated as new pages are created at the front. (I'm learning as I go!) When I select the picture frame with the image in it, however, and either click the "float with text" button in the toolbar or the "Float" button in the Pinning panel, nothing happens. No pin appears in the doc for me to position and the image does not behave as if it is pinned. Also, when I try to pin the line underneath my main section titles, the line seems to disappear and again no pin is created. I wondering if there was something obvious that I am missing here? Thanks for your help Paul
I'm unable to pin an object so that it remains at the bottom of the frame in which its pin resides when its pin moves between frames. No matter what settings I use, the object (a picture frame in this example) remains in the frame where it originated, regardless of where its pin ends up. It seems an common enough situation; what am I doing wrong? Example Doc.afpub
Heaven knows how many times I have turned "Vertical keep within bounds" ON, and still, after a reopen, the frame has moved down again. The only way to keep it in place seems to be turning "preserve manual position" ON, but that buggers up the position should the paragraph move to another column/page. Please check!
Working a lot with Photo, Designer and Publisher I can't remember it crashed, so that must have been a long time ago. But today I'm working with pinned textframes and it crashes a lot. In say half an hour I already had 5 crashes when working with this pinning.  It's crashing for example... if I move an object closer to it's pinned location. Than suddenly the software just hangs and can only be killed via task manager if I (use mousewheel to) zoom out after setting the pin If I save the file (with ctrl+s) after setting the pin <<<< THIS IS HAPPING A LOOOOOOT AND SEEMS TO ALWAYS CRASH THE SOFTWARE It might also have to do that the pinlocation is inside a textframe spanning over multiple pages
