New document bug. Formats are missing A2, A1 and A0.


Recommended Posts

Add the presets yourself. This is intentional (has already been discussed at length), because otherwise you wouldn't have anything to do yourself...just kidding­čś¬

Serif doesn't care and still consider it a good workflow to always create a new document smaller than needed and then go to the document settings and resize the document. There you will find the big DIN formats:

Such a procedure is cumbersome and incomprehensible. All DIN A formats should already be available when creating a new document.

If all 11 DIN A paper sizes are included then more American sizes should be added, too. Currently, Publisher 2.0.3 six DIN A sizes plus the European business card size for a total of seven. But for Central and North America, there are only three preset sizes, Letter, Legal, and Ledger. We should also have Half Letter, Half Legal, US Business Card, and maybe Foolscap for parity before more European sizes are added.

@MikeTO Hmm, and what is the reason of deploying localized versions of a software? Is it forbidden to install/show different presets for every localized version of the apps ?! This does not only apply to commonly used document formats but also to e.g. commonly used color profiles for europe, the americas, far east...

In windows 11, unfortunately, it is not possible to select the A0, A1, A2 format either with a new document or as it is already created. This is very annoying, and I don't understand how Serif could intentionally remove it. Who are these Affinity programs for? I work professionally on these programs, I use them every day in my work. And programs instead of swarming are broken on purpose. The Affinity 1 version was already good, you know there were still bugs. But in the version of Affinity 2 there were changes that nobody asked for. Instead of correcting errors, Serif made incomprehensible changes, including the removal of A0, A1 and A2 formats.

Are these programs for preschoolers? For fun on an A4 sheet?

People. I want to work on these programs.

Serif, don't put a log under your feet. I'm willing to pay 10 times more for a program just to get it to work properly.

Serif - give me your account number - I'll transfer you the money I kept for the purchase of the latest CorelDraw, which in Poland is 6 times more expensive than the entire Affinity package.
