  1. First post. Greetings! Generally, the folks at Serif should think long and hard if they want to create an Indesign clone, or rethink the way books, brochures etc are being designed. There are some things Indesign does incredibly well, and master pages are one of them. SUGGESTIONS: 1: One thing I like in particular is the ability to "transfer" objects placed on the master page for editing on the page itself via Shift-Cmd-Click. Otherwise one is limited to how the master page has been set up. EDIT: Ignore. I noticed that this is possible as the master page objects become accessible on their own layer. Well done! 1a: The master key objects become accessible on the page through a separate layer, but this then applies to all the pages using that particular master page. One should be able to disconnect the objects from the master page, so that they become independent and editable. 2: Many other suggestions like anchors, improved and automatic text flow between text boxes have already been made. That applies to the master page, too. If I create linked text boxes on the master page, they should become "hot" on the actual page, so that I can just paste long text into it. 3: Another thing is text variables. There are some already, although a bit obscure under Studio > Fields, but they should be made more prominent and extended to allow the user to set up his/her own. 4: What I like about Indesign is the placement of page guides, because I get an input box where I can set the exact location of the guide. Yes, there's the Guides Manager, but that's another window on the screen. It would be nice if selecting or dragging a new guide would show its position right on the status bar at the bottom or somewhere at the top. Indesign solves this elegantly. EDIT: That's solved. A popup shows the exact location. 5: Indesign also has a good if somewhat awkward way of handling tabs, showing a tab bar above the text. Perhaps a fixed tab bar (toggleable) can be placed right ontop of the text frame, so that one can easily place and adjust the tabs, the indents etc. EDIT: That's solved, too. Frame Text Ruler. BAM! Awesome! BUGS: 1: The way adding tab stops works is buggy, and not properly thought-out, although the idea of incrementing it has merit. The preset (in my case 10mm) is only applied the second time. The first one is still the old setting, in my case 8mm. The question is whether this should be relative or absolute needs to be answered, because if I put in 8mm, I mean 8mm, not 8mm from the last tab stop. Perhaps it's better to add a second button for this purpose. EDIT: The bug with the wrong units ONLY applies to a manual input/change of the unit. If you click on the arrows, all is fine. 2: Please have a look at the Guides, because I had created one, but that didn't show up in the Guides Manager. Only after selecting it, it became visible in the Guides Manager. That's just a brief feedback after installing Publisher last night. Can't wait for the final release, and with it the possibility of dumping Adobe's products. Never liked them as a company, although Indesign is a fantastic product. Affinity Publisher is on the right track, and I for instance would pay a lot more than just $45.00 for a finished product that equals or surpasses Indesign. Cheers, Helmar
  2. I am having trouble getting the Text Ruler to show, so I typed a couple of extra tabs to move the type for the time being. Suddenly, the Toolbar, Studios, etc. all disappeared. Then the graphic behind the text box I was editing disappeared. I may have accidentally clicked in the graphic (a Designer file) which may have caused the text in the graphic to overflow the text box. But, that was after the top and side panels disappeared. Command-z brought the graphic back and Reset Studio got every back in view. I was not unable to replicate these issues, however, I just tried again and the Studios, etc. disappeared again. Typing a tab seems to sometimes mean Hide Studio because that is what get a check mark.
  3. As it appears to be, tables are treated as independent floating objets, as are images and shapes. Can a table be inserted on a text, so the contents of the table flow through linked text frames? On our workflow is a very regular occurrence, as we do a lot of financial and management reports with large tables spreading through pages that must flow with the text. Also this bring the question about table headers, so the header appears at the start of each page where the table is divided and it seems this option is not available at this moment. This is one of the few things that i could miss from InDesign, as it treat tables as text elements inside text frames (as also does Word and other apps)
  4. When I open multiple photos, they appear as tabs at the top of the window. But, they are in random order, not by file name order. This is a major annoyance, can it be changed. I would be grateful for any suggestions.
  5. Okay! The black bars on the right are text. On the left, dates! You knew that. I want all of this in one text box. I tried to set up two stops — the first is a [ flush right/rag left ], to align the dates on the right side. The second is [ flush left / rag right ], for the regular text. Small patches of my head are now without hair. Assistance rewarded with Namaste.
  6. I am using a 5K iMac and I went to add tabs I can add about 5 and then the rest are hidden. I tried to scroll, key down, enlarge the panel (It won't vertically) without success. I need to change the justification of those hidden tabs.
  7. I miss an item in File menu to "Close All" files. Or maybe also a contextual menu over the file tabs to "Close", "Close All", "Close Other", "Close right tabs",... Thanks.
  8. Feature requests 1. Stop Tab Ruler The current stop tab panel is rather frustrating, and often these things need to be designed rather than calculated. The same sort of thing as in Word, Illustrator, InDesign, Quark Xpress 2. Text box overflow Currently the text in a box flows out of the bottom of a text box. I read the reasoning why, however at concept stage (especially when using dummy text) I find myself having to delete lots and lots of Latin text, only to have to re-paste it in a few moments later once I've changed font size / box size etc. 3. Text box linking It would be really great if there was an option so that you could choose if the text flowed out of the bottom of the text box. Likewise the option of linking / flowing content between text boxes would be super-helpful. I know that these may appear more like options for a DTP package rather than illustration program, however there's often need, especially web concepts. Thanks
  9. Would love to see tabs be shown on the screen as the values are changed in the panel. Maybe like a popup smart indicator? Anyway I don't see how the tabs panel is very clear as to what any reference of distance between tabs are at the moment, for me its mainly trial and error. And working under deadlines, these types of things can wear you out trying to figure them out.
  10. The names of tabs on panel "Anpassung" German version don't have enough place to write total name on all options. iMac 5k Retina Late 2014, MacOS 10.13.2
  11. I'm finding when laying out tabular data that it's a pain to add/edit tab stops only from the small text input field (some of the UX there isn't really good either, as I can't seem to scroll down the window when I have entered more than 5 tab stops). Being able to see the tab stops on a ruler (similar to InDesign) to be able to click and drag them to adjust would make viewing and adjusting the paragraph tab stops a million times better.
  12. I expected some creative options in the tab section of the Paragraph menu. They are there, but I am not able to assign different positions to multiple tabs within the same line. When I change one tab it changes the other one, also, even though I have made separate tabs with the + option. What am I missing? Thanks.
  13. Would it be possible to tweak the handling of windows/tabs within the Affinity interface a little to make things more convenient - - when undocking a document window to have it floating, have Affinity adjust window dimensions to the current canvas size - when resizing a floating window, have the content center accordingly, at least for as long as the displayed canvas is smaller than the window borders I've made some animated Gif's to illustrate what I mean. Also, would it be possible to have the 'hot zone' for docking windows into the main application workspace a little smaller? Right now it's quite broad, making it easy to undock (yay!) and far too easy to accidentially dock (nay!), causing a bit of a struggle at times to carefully position undocked window next to one another. Could we tweak it so that for docking it's smaller than for undocking?
  14. Add Tab Stops but not working Alternative solution: I select "Justify Left" but have a space.

    Blurred text in tabs

    Hey, today I noticed all my tool-tabs in Designer are blurry. I don't know if I just didn't recognize before or if it's because i deactivated the required font. It's just the tabs – buttons, drop-downs, rulers, headlines are perfectly sharp. My config is a late 2015 27" 5k iMac 4 GHz i7, Designer V1.5.5 . Any suggestions? Thanks in advance
  16. Is there a way to have decimal leader spacing between them-(tracking)? I find that the default decimal spacing is way too tight. Maybe a future version? Or custom glyph?
  17. Hello, I want to make a suggestion: When I load several files into the workspace, I get a number of TABS with the filenames. The active Tab has a grey color, that is difficult to differ from the rest of the Tabs, same with the X-Delete-Icon. Maybe some more contrast would help. Think about the older people, who sit before a retina desiplay. Sincerely Frank
  18. One very small thing that bugs me: This is regarding exporting many images one by one. When you open a large amount of images, the left most tab is open, and the tabs furthest to the right get compacted under a submenu since it cannot fit them all in the tab bar. This is all good. What doesn't make sense is as soon as you export and close the first image, it immediately switches to the RIGHT-most image in the tab bar. Half the time when exporting many images, this cannot even be seen in the tab bar without clicking the arrow in the right of the tab bar. (See attached for visual explanation, just after closing first tab) This right to left approach seems to just get in the way, because it forces the user to click on the "more" arrow, select the right most tab (this brings it to the left of the tab bar for some other reason), export and close it, and then once again the RIGHT-most image is selected, again hidden away in the more menu. What I'd suggest is simply the approach anyone takes to read basic english. When a tab is closed, have the image on the right of that tab be opened next, not the one far away at the end of the list.. Anyway one else think this is a strange nuisance? Or is there some reason for Affinity to behave like this?
  19. I need some help with tabs in AD, how is it that there is no documentation on how to use it? I don’t want to have to figure it out, as I can’t find any info or forum topic on this.
  20. It would be nice to have a TABs (in german Tabulator) tool when working with text. Are there any plans to implement this in future? :) And of course, It will be also usefull for photo too
  21. Probably a "duh" question, but what is the best way to copy a colour between two open AD documents (in tabs)? Each tab is its own microcosm so they don't share colours in use. At present I just copy a coloured object between the tabs and use that, but I'm sure there must be a far more efficient way.. Cheers!
  22. Can we have some "tabs" for setting text?
  23. Don't know if anybody has the same problem. Everytime I try to open two or more documents on Affinity Designer the tabs (that show documents names, colors, swatches, brushes...) just disappear. Look: In this case I have the main open document plus another one thats not named (you can see "Untitled"cause I was trying to find the document tab). Im running fullscreen on MacBook Pro Retina.
  24. I was having trouble finding where to do many common functions, and realized that it's because I can't see the different tabs for colors, brushes, etc... Obviously this is a rather significant issue. I'm on a 15" (Mid 2014) Macbook Pro Retina W/ videocard. Thanks for the help!
  25. Sorry to add to your probably huge and very long list of requests this is not a essential, but something that helps speeds up a daily process.... When setting up area as such as bleed and guides etc, after entering the first value in "other" programs hitting tab will fill all remaining boxes with the same value. Presently each box has to be manually entered. Not at all essential just a nice touch to add, when including the bleed options :)
