Export/Import Affinity Publisher Document Presets


Recommended Posts

Hi Chris_06,

While there is no way to export your pre-sets at the moment you could copy and paste the doc_presets.propcol from the location mentioned here to same location on other computers etc. Hopefully the ability to export them is something we add in the future :)

Thanks

Hopefully indeed. It is an essential feature for larger environments and encouraging users to copy/paste files around is not really the safest method of handling this. We are already moving around the printer profile config file. I have considered mapping %USERPROFILE%\.affinity\ back to a network share using a soft link, but that's a bunch of trouble when the app really should handle this sort of thing.

It would seem that a global export method in your code could easily be adapted to export <whatever-you-like>.

Thanks for listening!

Posted something in "questions". Was sent here. Here are my "presets" suggestions over and above exporting.

 

Feature suggestions:

  1. Make those templates / categories import/exportable, and create a central repository, from which people can install them. So much easier than an individual effort to set them all up separately.
  2. Make the categories collapseable
  3. Change the order of the categories  (L/R drag does that)
  4. Hide categories you don't use
