Guides only propagate one Master

Recommended Posts


as the title says - whats the best practice here to propagate guides to lower masters. Sample:

- Create Master A, add a guide

- Create Master B, inherit Master A. Guide is visible dashed (assume this means from Master)

- Create Master C. Inherit Master B (which then, as confirmed in the layers panel, contains Master A). Guides are gone. Not even dashed.


Is this by design? Is this a setting? I know I can apply multiple Masters so I could apply A and B to C but then, on C, there's A in the main level and A in the sub level, so applied twice.

I am not seeing this in Version 2 on Mac OS 11.7.1 I do recall that this happened in version 1. I made the guide and then dragged the Master onto the already made Master Page and then dragged that Master onto the third Master. No use of the context menu's Apply Master... or Apply to Pages...

Mac Pro (Late 2013) Mac OS 11.7.3 
Affinity Designer 2.0.4 | Affinity Photo 2.0.4 | Affinity Publisher 2.0.4 | Beta versions as they appear.

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

I'm not seeing it in Publisher 2 on Windows, either. Made guides on Master A. Applied Master A to Master B, and applied Master B to Master C. All 3 show the Guides.

Thanks for the quick replies. My bad, this is fixed in V2 but still present in the newest V1.10(.6?). 

Currently, some issues prevent me from upgrading to V2 so I have to work around that issue I guess.

it's not fixed in 1.10.6.
fixed in v2 only.
