  1. Hi Two questions: 1) Setting up a document wide default style, workflow... BTW: I'm really confident with text styles. Yet I'm bumping up against the logic in Affinity Publisher. My usual workflow in InDesign: Create new document Style a piece of text to give me font style, size and leading (line spacing) In paragraph styles panel - "[Basic Paragraph]" is highlighted by default. Right-click > "Redefine Basic Paragraph". Job done - start laying-out the document and creating styles. In those 3 moves, I've set up a file with a default *document* text style. (InDesign's "[Basic paragraph]" is not delete-able by accident, that's what the square brackets indicate so it's a safe place to set these 'document defaults'). Can anyone give me a similar numbered step-by-step list for how I achieve the same in Publisher, please? ----------- 2) No Style, keh?! Let's be really clear - > the so-called "No style" HAS a style. It's Arial 12pt Regular (12.4pt). That's ....a style... What is "No style" that's in Arial Regular 12pt style for, please? What's it's purpose, why is it there - what is it for?
  2. Hi there! I use a dual screen setup (Win 10 - 20H2, Auros RX5700XT graphics card, latest drivers as of 5.12.2020) and decided to move some panels to the second screen. Among them is the textstyle panel. While changing the size of any panel works fine on the second screen, any relevant change of the textstyle panel freezes the app. No crash report, no error message. Here is my recipe: Create a new document of any size and format or load an existing one. Drag some panels out of the apps main window and place them on the second screen. Adjust the size of any of them, e.g. the pages panel - everything works fine. Resize the textstyle panel in height by clickdraging the bottom of the panel downwards - boom! App freezes. By the way: Designer is affected, too. With Designer it is even worse: Sometimes just clicking on the title of the panel causes Designer to crash. And in both cases it is only the textstyle panel that causes the freeze (at least in my case). Is that a know problem or just limited to my pc? Best, Volker
  3. I just moved from PagePlus where I could select paragraph alignment, select 'hanging', and set the indent for the second and subsequent lines in the same paragraph. I could do this in a table and in fact need to do it in a table with Publisher. Looked at all the 'hanging indent' answers but they all seemed to be talking about something else. How can I make a hanging indented paragraph in Publisher?
  4. Hello. I searched for delayed typing and couldn't see any other postings in 3 pages. I'm just starting to learn Publisher and I noticed that when I type there is a large delay in the text coming out and I can't record with OBS to show. I have to type and wait for the letters to display for about 3 to 5 seconds after I type them. I only have been doing a few words at a time with the delay and it is severely slowing me down. My document isn't complicated and I only have a single image. I have to wait about five seconds for this to finish typing itself out: "This sentence takes about five seconds to fill in after I stop typing." I noticed that Publisher and Photo use a very large percent of CPU even when they were both minimized and hadn't been used in a few minutes, and Publisher was the same once when I had it open but wasn't interacting with it. I should have plenty of horsepower, and haven't installed any fonts yet. Thank you for your help. System: Dell XPS 15 9570, Windows 10 Pro v10.0.17134 Build 17134, Core i& 8750H, 32GB RAM
  5. Windows 10 Home 1809, Publisher I have a document where the pages are non-facing and I would like the reader to automatically view them as single pages rather than as 'spreads'. When I export to a PDF in Publisher, the PDF shows in a web browser as I would expect with one page on top of the other scrolling downwards - see first attached image from Firefox. However, when I view the document in Acrobat Reader DC the document is always shown as a 'spread' - see second attached image. Is there a way for me to tell Publisher to 'force' or suggest to the PDF viewer - I don't know what software the user will be using - to use a certain page display mode, as shown in the third attached image which shows the options in Acrobat Reader DC? The one I want is called "Enable Scrolling".
  6. Hi, it would be very nice if you surprise us with MathML support.
  7. What is the practical limit for the number of pages in a Publisher document? I am compiling a booklet that will be around 100 pages ( double-sided on 50 physical pages), being a mixture of text and graphics. I want to output it as a print-ready PDF without splitting the document.
  8. Has anyone else notice odd behavior since the 1.9 update? I'm on Windows 10 Pro with a highly capable laptop and 3 monitors. 1.8 was rock solid and fast... A few things I've noticed: 1. file load times (File|Open) seem significantly longer than previous versions. 2. linked documents cause host programs to hang/crash. for example, a muti-artboard designer file when placed in publisher causes crashes when the designer file is updated. In some cases the update time is quite long (3 minutes at worst for me; others it simply hangs). 3. designer with multiple artboards instantly crashes when attempting to print.
  9. I have been using Affinity Publisher since it’s early beta version and it has pretty much completely replaced Adobe InDesign for me. In general I am super happy with all 3 Affinity products which have become the main tools for my professional work. There are though still a few issues where I unfortunately do not get the performance I've been used to from InDesign. One extremely important thing for me and other designer colleagues of mine is precise fine tuning of justified text. In InDesign you can adjust the justification settings to get a pretty much perfect text box without weird spacing and gaps between words. My colleagues and I have until now been unable to get satisfactory results using Publisher’s settings so I would kindly ask the Affinty team working on Publisher to take an extra look into this feature and try and get it up to par with what's possible in InDesign. Maybe we have all been doing something wrong though I doubt it because I have heard this complaint in the forums before. I am including a screenshot of the settings I have been using for years in InDesign which pretty much give perfect results every time. I have yet to find the same ‘magic’ formula in Publisher and until then this will unfortunately be a major issue for me. Thanks for looking into this
  10. Publisher still doesn't want us to change the ruler's zero mark on two facing pages. If you change the ruler origin on the X axis of a master page of two facing pages, you cannot duplicate that ruler origin change by applying that master to facing pages in the publication. The contents of the master page will apply, but NOT the ruler X origin change. If you want the X origin of the ruler, i.e. the zero mark, to be re-centred in between each two facing pages you must change the X origin for each and every pair of facing pages in the publication manually by going to View > Guides Manager > Spread Origin. This should have been fixed long ago. X or Y spread origins could be specified when one is creating a new publication, then it would apply to all pages. At the very least they should be retained in Master pages. That should be easy to code.
  11. Hi, I'm testing a data merge but when I click on generate the app crash. I have seen the video tutorial and I want to ask you: do you know the other documentation about this? Thanks Registrazione schermo 2021-02-10 alle 13.01.07.mov Registrazione schermo 2021-02-10 alle 13.01.07.mp4
  12. Hi - how can you offer a publisher tool and then it is not possible to use Emojis. I have bought publisher to have free opportunities to create flyers, brochures or a book. Is there a way to change it in some settings? Thanks for fast reply Corina
  13. I have a hexagon. The points are top and bottom. I want them left and right, so I turn it either by the turn handle or by the toolbar. Now I add text to create shaped text. No matter what I do, the text aligns from the points, so instead of reading left to right, it reads from bottom to top. How do I correct this ?
  14. I'm a relatively new user of Publisher, using v. on Win10Pro-64bit. Since updating, I'm noticing diagonal fine lines across images. I'm assuming they are edting aids, but will they affect output, especially printing? And. how did I mistakenly turn them on?? See attachment. Thanks.
  15. I can’t help thinking that Publisher is missing a huge market segment if nothing else if it doesn’t also include ebook production. it already does excellent pdf creation, and a number of other formats, but not true ebook production as Vellum does. Just a thought. Quote ”Created with usability and elegance in mind, Vellum is a fantastic software for creating Apple-, Kobo- and Amazon-approved ebooks and POD books with one click. While there are other, much cheaper software solutions to do this for you, some of them even listed in this guide, Vellum is unique: it creates not only professional but beautiful text-centric ebooks. If your goal is to create a book as elegant as a Penguin edition, Vellum can be your choice. The creators took care of everything: simple to use, efficiently imports from Word, and easy to change things even after the epub export.”
  16. Greetings! What I am wanting to do is have a book that must be rotated every time a page is turned. So for example.... If I have a Master page with the Spread going horizontal... So you can read it from left to right..... Then I want the spread to be from Top to Bottom...... I figure that this feature would cause confusion for some people if this is not what they want... Thanks in advance!
  17. I am creating a publisher document and typed the word management. Problem is the "gem" glyph, which I don't want. Can someone tell me how to turn this off. I've tried a few things to no avail. I will never want the gem glyph so would prefer to delete it if I can. Thanks.
  18. This is my latest poem as a tribute to the late Captain Sir Thomas Moore. The image was turned into a cartoon using the GMIC extension in Affinity Photo. The poem was written in LibreOffice and imported into Affinity Publisher. Good Knight, Captain Tom
  19. I just started to use Publisher and find that leading is very odd, actually, uncontrollable. This has nothing to do with paragraph spacing, leading override or any of the clever things. It is just basic leading or line feed, the space between baselines. It makes no difference whether this is specified in the style sheet editor, the paragraph context editor or the text context editor. The default is set solid, if I add fixed amounts 12/13 12/14 or percentages up to 110% nothing at all happens to the leading. If I specify a three point lead 12/15 or a 120% line feed then the paragraph goes to 12/24 or double spaced. There might be some sort other context that is new to me and this software might work in a different way but I cannot believe that this, as a problem, is what it appears. Serif would be vilified and everyone would know about it. But I am no novice in typography. I trained old-school and have been to every type of school since for more than fifty years so this granddad does not need to be shown how egg sucking should be done. Even so, I am missing something, obviously. The point is illustrated in the attachments. The first is set 12/12 the second 12/14 the third 12/15
  20. Hi! I bought Affinity Publisher to replace Microsoft Publisher. But how can I install the Finnish language support? When creating large publications in Finnish, the language support is quite crucial for a publication software. Microsoft Publisher has good Finnish language support, but how about Affinity Publisher? I found some information about installing an Open Office hyphenation language pack. But as far as I can see, there is no open office hyphenation dictionary for Finnish. Best regards, Tommi
  21. Thank you for your great work with regular expressions. It met my expectations and works well with Polish conjunctions. On the screenshots, you can see how regular expressions correct conjunctions at the end of the line. "Search and replace", where we enter the following expressions: Search for a regular expression: (\s[iuawzoIUAWZO])(\s) - for individual characters (\s(Do|W|We|Z|Za|Ze|I|O|U|A|do|w|we|z|za|ze|i|o|u|a))(\s) or (\s\b.{1,2}\b)\s - for longer words Tekst zastępujący: \1[Non Breaking Space - from the pop-up menu] The rules come from: https://swiatczytnikow.pl/jak-pozbyc-sie-wiszacych-spojnikow-w-calibre/ It would be useful to be able to save the rule in the Publisher. Maybe it exists and I did not find it? PS. Sorry for my English - Google translate
  22. Hallo zusammen, mal schauen, ob es hier auch eine deutsche Community gibt Ich hatte mich so drauf gefreut, nach InDesign mein erstes Projekt mit dem Publisher umzusetzen. Doch zwei Dinge haben mir die Freude daran ein wenig verhagelt: 1.) Publisher friert ein: Ich hatte ab und zu auf Win10 eine erhöhte Prozessorauslastung, deutlich höher als vorher, und Publisher rührte sich kaum mehr. Zuletzt musste ich das Programm über den Taskmanager abstürzen lassen. Glücklicherweise funktionierte die Wiederherstellung und ich konnte normal weiter arbeiten. Keine Ahnung woran das liegt. Vielleicht hat ja auch darauf jemand eine Antwort...? 2.) Mein Hauptproblem: PDF/X-Ausgabe. Ob nun als X-1a, X-3 oder X-4, solange man beim Rastern "Nicht unterstützte Eigenschaften" angewählt hat, rastert Publisher ALLES. Ich erhalte also quasi eine große Bilddatei. Warum? Schwarze Texte sind darin nicht überdruckt, obwohl angewählt. Auch ein neu auf 4c-angelegtes Schwarz (0/0/0/100), welches extra auf Überducken gestellt wurde, wird nicht überdruckt. Also habe ich das Raster mal auf "Nichts" gestellt und siehe da, Publisher kann sehr wohl Vektor-Daten ausgeben und Schriften einbetten. Die Schriften sind dann bei X-1a und X-3 auch richtig überdruckt, aber nicht bei X-4?!?! Ebenfalls "interessant": Bei der Einstellung wo nichts gerastert wird, kann der Publisher bei Ausgabe von X-1a sowie X-3 nicht mit Transparenzen aus dem eigenen Hause, nämlich Affinity Photo-Dateien, umgehen. Die transparenten Schatten waren einfach ausgegraut! In allen PDF/X-Varianten werden zudem die eigenen Publisher-Schatten und auch 3D-Effekte einfach weggelassen. Wenn ich rastern angebe, sind die natürlich da, aber eigentlich wollte ich nicht eine mehrseitige Broschüre zu einem riesigen Megabyte-Ungetüm aufblähen, mit zudem deutlichen Qualitätseinbußen beim Druck. Hat jemand ähnliche Erfahrungen. Klappt bei euch die PDF-Ausgabe etwa problemlos? Gibts irgendwelche Tipps? Oder muss ich im Moment damit leben, bis der Publisher dahingehend irgendwann mal verbessert wird? Freue mich über eure Rückemeldungen! Gruß Leo
  23. Hey, because the discussion board is full of requests and I don't really know where to put my thoughts and experiences from the first run of Affinity Publisher I put them here in a quick list for further discussion UI Doubleclick on Color in Color selector opens a different dialog to a doubleclick on a swatch mac OS Proxy Icons for file management monochrome tool icons Color Management / Spot Colors: Device independent color workflow generally mixed colorspaces (like in Indesign and PDF) Overprint preview, separations preview Better Overprint/Spot-Color-Management Make Spot Color from existing color Spot Colors in LAB-Color-Space for PDF Export Document Management Spreads which consist of more than two sides Printing Booklets / Imposition Export select Pages for export by a list of numbers Use .joboptions for the definition of pdf-Properties (really important) Define PDF-X Output Intend Export print separations / separated color channels Interactive PDFs with page transitions and video content Import IDML
  24. Is it impossible to make an Affinity Publisher table's cut and pasted data autoflow to the next frame?
  25. Ich arbeite mit Affinity Photo, Affinity Designer und Affinity Publisher (Version 1.8.6) auf dem MacBook air (Mac OS 11.1 Big Sur). Wenn ich eine pdf-Dateien öffne, bearbeite und dann wieder als pdf-Datei exportieren will, stürzen die Programme ab, sowohl Photo, Designer als auch Publisher. Ich benütze jetzt wieder Version 1.6.1 ohne Abstürze. Ich möchte aber die neuesten Versionen anwenden. Was kann ich machen?
