[Publisher v2.0.0] View of multiple pages in horizontal alignment

Recommended Posts


is it possible to order the view of the pages in horizontal mode? Please see at attachement that I have a lot of unused space and it could be very helpfully to order the view in a different way - depending on the content left and right of a sheet.

Not in the workspace. You can do it in the Pages panel by making that panel wider, if that helps.

You can however create multiple views of the same document and this way possibly have better use of your workspace:


Unfortunately it seems that the feature is still buggy on macOS, where it is also impossible to detach all windows similarly to be able to arrange them as above. Auto-docking near edges is also a great nuisance [but can be avoided by using the Ctrl-key while moving a window]. On Windows this can be alleviated by using the PowerToys FancyZones tool, but once the Affinity apps have scripting support, these kinds of window arrangements can easily be created by user-created scripts. I expect this community to be particularly productive in creating free scripts!

UPDATE: When using split views, it is useful to desynchronize the tools so that they are NOT window-dependent (one might assume that all views on the same document would automatically share the tools, but this is not so):
