  1. Publisher 1.8.0.535 hangs when applying text styles and editing text styles - Body Text, 2 indented styles and Header 3 style in use. 3 different types of Master pages defined. Working in Windows 10, i7 CPU, 16 GB RAM, preferred rendering via graphic card (NVIDIA GTX 750 Ti), approximately 30 pages document (so far) including pinned images. In Task Manager crash handler visible under Publisher entry.
  2. Hi, is it possible to add languages in OSX - Catalina for orthography correction. The background is, I need Indonesia (id_ID). To add a hyphenation was possible and it works. Thanks
  3. I can't understand why a fliped frame shows the filled text mirrored. Same happens with text on path. Take a path flip it, and the text you fill on that path is mirrored. I have no idea where i should use this for. I would prefer a flipped frame, that is an other "normal" frame after flipping. Thanks!
  4. I have a lot of book typesetting and test Affinity Publisher from time to time. I have always tried to publish a project. I have not yet been able to set a single book with Publisher. It is simply impossible to work professionally with Affinity Publisher (neither v1. 7. 3 nor Beta v1. 8. 0. 523). The orphan and widow settings are a joke and so not usable. Footnotes are completely missing. Book function not available. The speed is so slow that it is unacceptable for a modern program. All in all, in my opinion the software has no sense in this way. For a few flyers or business cards there are enough alternatives. But for book typesetting? Serif I think this will take few years befor Publisher can be named so.
  5. Hello forum, I hope, someone can help me out with setting up a Publisher document: The colours used are black (from cmyk) and one spot colour. By writing the PDF for printing, all texts (set to 100% black in Publisher) are being transformed to "rich black" containing cmyk colours. (Nooooo!) How can I prevent 100%-black-elements from being converted to some cmyk colour? I've found a suggestion to create a solid colour for 100% black. That solution is not working for me: I am using greyscale photos as well. So now the created PDF contains three colours. The first spot colour, the black from the greyscale photos and the spot colour I created to prevent texts converting to cmyk. That is very annoying, I need the PDF to be used only the black from cmyk and the one solid colour. Is there a soloution for this? Thank you guys for suggestions / help. Cheers
  6. I have opened a document from Publisher that is based on Master Pages. These have picture frames and Artistic Text on them. In Designer on iPad these items show up with little X symbols instead of the usual round corner and side handles. Also their layers have an orange line beside them. I assume this shows that they are Master Page elements and thus locked for editing. Is there an "Edit Detached" mode as there is in Publisher or also for instance in Photo for Mac (I don't have Designer for Mac yet)? Also, I can pull another layer onto a Master layer or a layer within it and it will go there. But after that this layer is completely locked. It can't be moved, deleted or pulled out of that Master layer. Albeit it not even having an orange line beside it. What's going on there?
  7. Hi. I have done some searching but I have not found an answer to the following question: How does one set "top align" as the default for a text frame, instead of "justify vertically"? I am currently working on my first project in Affinity Publisher and my text frames are set by default to vertical justification, which sometimes creates a frightening scene when adding text! My search for a field or setting to make top alignment the default has so far proved useless, so I must remember to set it for each frame, even frames of flow text. Thanks.
  8. Hi, Is there a way to turn on percentage scaling for scaling an image placed within a picture frame? Shift, Alt, Ctrl none of the modifiers seems to work. Very annoying when i just want to scale a tiny bit
  9. Publisher: Is it possible to set more than 2 pages in a row? For layouts in the architectural field, this is very often necessary to evaluate the presentation of several plans side by side. kind regards shoeller
  10. Below: Word document tracked change example Below: InDesign document tracked pasted example (matches visible copy in Word) Below: Publisher document tracked pasted example (includes all the 'deleted' copy from Word) I have recently hit a new problem in my transition of workflows to Publisher that when using a tracked changes Microsoft Word document to cut and paste amends to Publisher (and Designer) it seems to bring all the detritus of the tracked changes with the word clipboard, therefore including all the deleted content that should be ignored. After working this way for many years in InDesign this has caused a couple of embarrassing slip ups - not so much in native English but in translated docs such as the example included. So where is the problem and is there a cure? Content pasted into InDesign appears as the corrected text in Word - obviously the desired effect, but as far as I can tell an automatic scenario and not a preference in either InD or Word. Certainly I can find no preference or pasting method in Publisher that offers a solution. Yes I can Review and accept all changes in Word before cutting and pasting, but then I lose all indication of where the changes are/were in the Word doc, so need to have 2 word documents open to flick between. If I'm missing a trick please let me know. If not, this is a problematic issue/bug in a regular workflow.
  11. Is there any way how to basically protect your exported PDF file from Affinity software (mainly publisher)? Or is there any quick alternative? Thank you!
  12. For selecting multiple objects in Layers panel you can use Shift-click method: click on first layer, then Shift-click on the last one = all layers between them will be selected. There is a little bug if the Shift-clicked layer is a text (artistic or text frame) causing that the text layer's Show/hide toggle is switched. If you continue Shift-clicking on the text object, the fun continues too: - second Shift-click switches the toggle back, - every next Shift-click switches the toggles of all the layers in the selection! This bug is in Publisher and Photo too.

  14. Hello, I have this issue. Not properly visualized gradient Affinity (Publisher; Designer) Google Chrome visualization.svg
  15. Hi, Affinity Designer For iPad, at least in my setup, is not saving Publisher created files properly. If I make a file in Publisher Desktop and save to iCloud>customFolder, then "Open from Cloud" open file in Designer iPad, make a few edits, then save, it will not updated the file in iCloud>customFolder, but will instead write the updates to a new file of the same name in iCloud>Affinity Designer (default icloud app folder) I discovered this by accident and reproduced the error. 1. Create new multipage file in AfPublisher Desktop 2. Save in iCloud>WHATNOT folder 3. Close 4. “Open from iCloud” in AfDesigner iPad and make some edits across the pages, like this line. Save, close, save. close. 5. File in iCloud>WHATNOT is NOT updated. Went lookin elsewhere. 6. New updated version of the file in iCloud>Affinity Designer folder. Same name, but now has the afdesign extension where it showed no extension on original desktop save. 7. Opened in AfPublisher Desktop and added this test. Save and close. 8.Publisher Desktop did not move or make a new file. The file opened from iCloud>Affinity Designer was saved back to the same folder/ file. Expected behavior is that step 5 should not happen. Designer iPad was supposed to save in the same location in opened from. So yeah, this is one of the main ways I want to use Publisher and Designer together. Major bug as far as I'm concerned. (FWIW. 1st Gen iPad Pro 12.9, latest iOS and latest versions of Affinity Software across the board. 2018 Macbook Pro OS10.14 reproduced the bug. First found the bug with a Publisher file that started on a 10 year old Mac Pro running 10.13.)
  16. 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
  17. I have been designing books for kpd (kindle direct publishing) and every time I export to pdf for both my interior pages and my cover pages I am getting an error. I use the pdf for print option. I called head office to see what the problem was and they told me the file needed to be rasterized and there was layers on the pdf uploaded and that was why it didn't work. I also then tried to use the export option for print pdf (flatten) and it still didn't work. Can someone help me with this. I ended up having to export as a high quality jpg or png and then making that into the correct size for the pdf. It's funny because this just started happening. My first couple of times I uploaded (when I first downloaded publisher about 2 months ago) it worked but it's not anymore. Thanks.
  18. Hello, We are migrating our forms overlay process to Affinity Publisher and are forced to work with Windows Meta Files (.wmf) as our overlay. We start with the original overlay file (wmf) to open/import into Affinity, then save to .afpub. Next, we would make any changes, as needed, then save, and export to .wmf. Affinity creates a new .wmf file, but it is significantly larger than the original, it also can't be opened The problem with the .wmf file Affinity created is that it can't be opened by other windows programs. While our application is proprietary, Affinity's files can't be opened or viewed using the usual programs, like paint, which seems to be the issue. Any tips or setting change suggestions, or even what the issue is would be greatly appreciated. I have attached the original (FINL-org.wmf) file, the (FINL.afpub) and the Affinity created (FINL-pub.wmf). FINL-pub.wmf FINL-org.wmf FINL.afpub
  19. 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
  20. 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?
  21. Hi, thanks for the good work on the Affinity products! Having spent some first moments on tuning in with Affinity publisher I'm missing a preflight checker. That's why I have the following feature request: User Stories: As an Affinity Publisher user I would like Affinity Publisher to check whether my document layout and the document content fulfills before-configured criteria in order to not export unwanted documents. I would like Affinity Publisher to provide sane default values/configurations for the below-mentioned checks. I would like Affinity Publisher to enable me to define and administrate (create,read,update,delete) several preflight profiles. Desired checks: The checks that I would like Affinity publisher to perform are: Image resolution: I would like to get notified which image does not match a document's defined resolution to prevent pixelated prints. Image colour space: I would like to get notified if an image potentially contains colours which might get lost when producing a exporting a document, e.g. for CMYK printing. Content-bleed-distance: I would like to get notified which contents are too close to a document's bleed, e.g. a background image that should expand to the "bleeding edge". Outdated links: I would like to get notified which objects displayed in Publisher do not represent the latest version of a referenced file. Missing external resources: I would like to get notified which external resources cannot be located by Affinity Publisher anymore. Text overflows: I would like to get notified which text boxes have an overflow issue. Background: My first project is going to be a simple poster. But I plan to recreate an old InDesign project using Affinity Publisher, a poetry anthology with several pictures etc. I definitely need the software to notify me if I accidentally messed up my layout, e.g. by adjusting a paragraph style etc. I hope you are already on it. Such a preflight check definitely is part of what I would consider a professional desktop publishing program.
  22. Hi, Is there going to be an Affinity Publisher workbook getting published anytime soon ? I have already bought the workbooks for Designer & Photo. Waiting for the publisher Thank you,
  23. Is there an Affinity Publisher Workbook? If not are there any plans to publish one. I have been out of the lime light for a while but I am back now and I am getting stuck into Publisher, but I am well out of date so if could someone enlighten me with regard to the book please? Thanks, Tim
  24. Point 1. I decided to try to put a pdf together in AP Beta. I successfully created a pdf. The following day I accidentally deleted it, which was not really a big deal as I needed to update many of the images (.jpg). I was surprised that when I created a brand new pdf with the updated images, Publisher placed the old images! How is this possible? Point 2. Also, I can see no way to 'refresh' images. Point 3. All my images are linked, but do not update.
