  1. 1) In the Dock on Mac, the shape of Publisher-app is not same as other two Affinity-apps. Why? 2) I miss the palette: "Resource manager" to manage images. Now we have to click with mouse: [menu] Document / Resource Manager… too cumbersome.
  2. There are many threads regarding relative paths for linked images and wanted "pack & go" functionality. I read it over and over and I start to think that these solutions are partly really complicated for a thing that already has a easy solution if you look at other software. I reseaeched how customer photo book creation software like the one of CEWE, Rossmann and Pixum does it. They all have a "inages"/"ressources"/"assets" folder right beside the document file. This folder is managed by the application: If you drag an images from anywhere into your document (application window) the file is copied into that folder. If you delete the image from the document the file gets deleted to. If you change the file in the folder ot gets updated in the document like Publisher does this automaticly with linked ressources (if the option is acticated). It's really simple and works basicly the same way the APUBs "internal filesystem" works. This could be a third mode alongside with "embedded" and "linked". So there would be no need to do a regular "pack & go" to "clean" your image directory from unused files. Publisher should automatic delete them in this mode. Of course if you delete a used file it should show up with a broken image indicator in the document. But using this mode you know what you do. Again, every major photo book creator works this way and I believe this would solve all the problems people asking for relative paths and pack&go have. Also in my workflow it's cumbersome to copy my selected images first to another place. I browse my photo collection looking for fitting photos as I build up a new page and drag them in, look how they fit into what I want to show and maybe I remove it again and use another. Having them to copy to an image folder first is a bit annoying.
  3. It would be nice to have a shortcut for quickly open the resource manager, without going in the menu. I feel that need because when I have the Resource Manager open all the document suddenly becomes slow, especially moving images and frames (I do not understand if this is a problem of the resources of my computer or an application bug), so I keep it open only when I haeve to chek the images parametres. By the way, great app! Can't wait to use the final stable product!
  4. Hi, The Image placement status between resource manager and layers are not in sync. Document setup is set on Prefer linked. App preference is set on autmatically update linked file. Changing the linked file external wil not update the instance in AP. Dubbelclicking the placed image wil open embedded editor. Behavior in all cases is do embedded. Using all AD files, AP Version .145 on Windows.
  5. I've created a document, and inserted a number of images. However, I now want to link those files, rather than have them embedded, so I went to resource manager to do that, but the images don't appear. To test, I tried just dragging an image directly into the document. This one appears in the resource manager. I also created a frame directly on the page, and then dragged an image onto this. This appeared in the resource manager too. So the fact they don't appear must be because of the process I used: I created a master page, with two image frames in the positions that I wanted images. I created a number of pages based on this master page. I turned off syncing and unlinked the master page layer on each page. I dragged images onto the frames to populate them. There must be something about this process that means that the images don't get indexed into the resource manager. Please can this be corrected?
  6. Not sure if this has been requested yet, but.. I would like to see the Resource Manager available as a panel similar to the Links panel in InDesign, as well as being able to assign hotkeys to Resource Manager buttons like Replace (Relink) and Locate.
  7. It would be nice to be able to select multiple images (by holding shift key?) and bulk change the Placement.
  8. Dear Dev-Team, can you please bring the Resource Manager from Publisher to the Photo and Designer as well? At least for the Designer it would be a nice feature not to save large images within the .afdesign file. In the case you have to work with images/source files from other sources it would make things easier to update them in the progress. Thanks.
