  1. file > new dialogue Inconsistency: While A4 is highlighted on the left, there's custom document size settings on the right. What happened: file > new --> trusted highlight around A4 --> create --> Bam! Square document appeared (WTF moment) file > close --> file > new --> clicked on highlighted A4 > create --> got A4. Conclusion: it's an inconsistency in the interface - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - There's a lot more inconsistencies I've tripped up on. Was going to make a list and then post it all at once. Should I just add all consistencies I've observed here, or post them as a list? - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - Why these nit-picky details are so important I'm not sure whether Serif have sight of the priority their interface inconsistencies should have. So I'm hoping this will help create absolute clarity. Depends how(if) Serif want to grow their market of course.... Each inconsistency is a WTF moment?? I hate WTF moments.... they inevitably lead to wasted time. The apps are more difficult to learn than they need to be. The above are big reasons why studios won't even think about converting from Adobe. Anyone know of a studio that was Adobe, but is now Affinity? If yes, how big are they? None of the studios I work with have (all more than 4 designers). They know I'm committed to learning Affinity, and seem to put store in my opinion. I tell them they'd "be in a whole world of pain because these apps are still not there yet. Too many inconsistencies in interfaces and I'm not sure Serif are on it". Strategically - Get studios converting and the market will follow. Freelancers are not the force that will achieve it. (Very slowly perhaps, via the few affinity freelancers who become studios.... not a market storming strategy in my view). One thing I'd like to see is more hamonisation between ipad and desktop interfaces.. though that is really challenging. I'd counsel harmonising to the ipad, rather than the other way round (I've been using both).. no doubt I'll be shouted down, though I've sound logical reasoning for suggesting it. I've also a weirdly uncanny *record of predicting the future* where tech is concerned. I predicted the downfall of QuarkXpress long before Adobe acquired Macromedia... and the meterioc rise of a weird little search engine no one but me used, called Google. I recall my thoughts when I first saw it back in 1998: "that's a winner". Understatement?
  2. I have just moved from a windows 10 system to an iMac, so have purchased all three Affinity programs for my new machine. I have been working on a family history book in Publisher on the Windows 10 machine, but when I load the files in Publisher on my iMac to my dismay I discover that the Calibri light font I have been using is not allowed on my Apple system (seems it is owned by Microsoft!). Can anyone tell me if there a suitable alternative font I can use that will not throw all my formatting into disarray?
  3. I have recently ported a magazine I used to publish in ID to Affinity Publisher via IDML. I thought I had successfully done so, but today when I open the afpub file, all the page numbers now appear with a translucent yellowy/orange box over them, including on the master pages. One page of the magazine – page 10 – refuses to recognises its place in the order of things, and now shows itself as page 1, even though I have detached it, deleted the master page items and dropped the master page on to it again. Oddly, despite Page 10 calling itself Page 1, the subsequent pages continue on as expected: page 11, page 12 etc. What I can't fathom is that everything was fine when I closed the afpub file last night. Only today, when I opened it, did these problems occur. Thanks for any advice.
  4. I'm trying to produce a book containing many photos. Reached page 42 of 113 and found in Activity Monitor that the process "Affinity Publisher" is continuously running at over 100%. Placing more linked photos is causing crashes. The attached screen-dump shows Mac model, MacOS, Activity Monitor, as well as Publisher in the background. The .afpub file is 6.88 GB in size. What is going on?
  5. Hi, I have Affinity publisher for both Windows and Mac versions installed on different PC,. while I have opened the Publisher file on Mac (the file was initially created on publisher windows pc) . I can see lots of format issues like text are overflowing and many other format issues. Same files while opened on Publisher Windows versions all looks fine. Please help, why the software is not compatible with Mac and windows. Regards, BES
