  1. The problem I face was that I couldn't place chosen pictures in placeholders on a spread: I applied Master B to page 2 and Master C on page 3. Then I chose 7 pictures, all TIF in this case, to be placed to each of the placeholder in the spread. The result is that I can’t place the pictures in either of the placeholders on page 2, but on page 3 I can. I repeated the same thing, but with smaller jpg pictures. The result was the same. Now, if I apply Master B or Master C to an entire spread, all pictures are placeable. It seems though that a combination of 2 master pages on the same spread causes the issue. MacBook Pro 15’’ 2018 2,6 Ghz 6-Core i7 32 GB 2400 MHz DDR4 No device as tablet or mouse No external screen Operating system macOS Catalina ver 10.15.3 Publisher version 1.8.1, but same issue on 1.7 Bug_test.afpub
  2. Hello I am writing documents with text and graphics. My graphics are linked in ressource and are floating with text reference. All is running well until the text is at the end of the page. I am trying to explain what's going wrong. When I import the picture as you can see here my picture is outside the bounds (of course option isn't checked !). But when I activate the option here the result I get. As you can see I do not want the picture here Is there anything I am doing wrong ? Regards
  3. Greetings to all, I've been using Affinity for two years, and something strange has happened to me today, I'm not sure if it's a mistake. When you drag an image to the affinity canvas the images are placed in gray scales, but the original image is in color! If I place the image from the panel, the same thing happens! either a png or jpge image is placed in gray scales, when the originals are in color, and I find no reason for it! I would appreciate any comments!!
  4. 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
  5. So I'm creating an RSVP card that has a bleed, and eventually will be printed 3-up on 8.5x11" paper. In the past, with the software I'm used to, I create a master document of the RSVP card, with the bleed margins set. I then create a separate document for the 3-up, and place the master into this document 3 times. In this way, if changes are made to the master, the 3-up reflects those changes. When placing the master into the 3-up, the software gave me import options when placing the master, one of them being that I could crop to the bleed bounding box. After placing the master, I would create crop marks on the 3-up (which the software had scripts for doing). So I could use some advice as to how to replicate this workflow in Publisher, at least to some degree. In order to get crop marks in Publisher, it appears I have to export the master as a PDF. Which I've done. But when I import the PDF into my 3-up, it doesn't include the crop marks for some reason, even though I can see the crop marks when I open the PDF in Preview. I'm starting to think that I will have to forgo the ability to link to the master, and simply copy and paste the master into the 3-up. Not ideal, but that is the only way I seem to be able to include the bleed. And then I will need to build the drop marks by hand on the 3-up.
  6. Hi ! Is there a way to display automatic guiding lines when moving a text/image/object to align it with other blocks ? Thanks
  7. When I'm Placing an image, AP is saying 'Image Policy - Your document contains a large amount of embedded image date. Would you like to link your images to reduce the document size?' While this is very kind, I'd rather say no in the instance where I'm working. But then it keeps asking me this question every time. Can I turn it off? It would be helpful also if AP offered a checkbox that says 'Use the same answer next time'. Thanks!
  8. I opened a RAW photo from my iCloud and developed it. I then closed it and it was saved to the gallery. I opened it again, because I wanted to place another RAW photo in another layer, so I could blend the exposures. After choosing and loading the second RAW photo and touching the screen to place it, Affinity Photo crashed and I was staring at my iPad homescreen... These are Canon80D RAWs and are shot with the Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 lens. I use an iPad Pro 12.9" (mark 1) with the iOS11 public beta. Edit: After exporting both RAW photos as TIFFs, and opening one in Affinity, I was able to place the other TIFF as a seperate layer on top and blend them perfectly together as it should. To me it seems the above mentioned bug has something to do with the RAW format.
  9. In many programs, there is a link panel that lets you see what files are linked. Even more, there is a button to let you updated your linked files. I cannot find either of these in Designer. Am I missing them or is this a missing feature?
  10. Something that's been bugging me for a while now. I have no control how a file is placed into a document on either of the apps. The imported file just sticks to the mouse pointer and I have to manually place it. That just steals time away from work as it piles up. I'd rather have a way to just import a bunch of images in one go (without using stacks, that just adds a different workaround). Especially now that we have 32-Bit EXR and AP can now be used as a stills compositing tool as well to combine multiple render passes. It'd also be good to set an option where to place the imported image. For photo bashing / matte painting for example it's helpful to import a bunch of images and have them show up on the canvas without overlap, like a gallery, so work can being right away with less moving things around. For standard compositing tasks a top left pin… and so on. For showcases it's often useful to just place things side by side. So a way to just say, n on x-axis with distance (xx cm) would save a ton of repetitive tasks. In terms of UI this could be solved with a few standard options to click on and an advanced option that have saveable presets. But most important to me is the automated import of many images to x=0, y=0.
  11. As the title says, my beta version (1.3.5.4) is crashing if I hit the ‘I’ (that’s a capital letter i) shortcut key to place/insert an image. Placing an image by clicking the tool in the toolbar works without problems. Interestingly, as I’ve reset all keyboard shortcuts, pressing the ‘i’ key does nothing (except sounding the typical “no action is possible” sound), despite the tooltip indicating that ‘I’ is the shortcut to place an image.
  12. Hello--apologies for this simple question. Newbie here. I have scanned from a simple sketch on paper and placed it in AD. My issue is that the 'white' background paper (and its ever greyer paper edges) shows and I don't know how to eliminate it simply. Is there a simple button fix? Do I have to mask? Erase? I was hoping for an easy solution since I will be scanning dozens like this. All help appreciated. I attached the document. Cheers, Connie
