Hello,

I am not sure if this was mentioned here before but I am looking for some help creating a booklet.

As opposed to Affinity Photo and Affinity Designer. I am having some difficulty getting used to using Affinity Publisher.

 

The main project I am looking to create is a comic book style booklet (ashcan/zine). The final product would be 5.5"x8.5", portrait.

I would like to create a template so that I don't have to constantly keep trying to get the same result.

Can someone here please help me with this. Thank you.

The way I set up templates is with enough stuff that I will use over and over again, but I do not set it up to include too much stuff. Meaning Page numbers on Master Pages, Margins and Guides and Grids plus a few Paragraph Styles and Character Styles that can be starting points. I would also include the CMYK (or if it is for Web or electric distribution, RGB).

Do check out the Grid manager, and the Guides manager, your project may benefit from using them.

Bleed would be necessary too if it is for print. Also if you have colours you will use (CMYK 0, 0, 0, 100 for pure black for the text) then I would set up a document Palette with that global colour.

Then save it as a template by going to File > Export as Template ...

Mac Pro (Late 2013) Mac OS 12.7.5 
Affinity Designer 2.5.3 | Affinity Photo 2.5.3 | Affinity Publisher 2.5.3 | Beta versions as they appear.

I have never mastered color management, period, so I cannot help with that.

This is intended for print. I just can't seem to get Affinity Publisher the same way I do the 2 other programs. Since I work mostly in graphic art, this seems more technical
