[Fixed] Margins setup while creating New Document won't be displayed

Recommended Posts

Steps:

1. Go to File > New

2. Include Margins

3. Add Margin values manually (not from button to use printer)

4. Press Ok

5. Select View > Show Margins

 

Margins don't show up.

 

If it works, try to close the document and create a new one again, may be that it is affected solely on re-using the previous Creation settings.

 

Quick Fix:

1. Go to File > Document Setup

2. Go to Margins Tab

3. Uncheck Include Margins

4. Press Ok

5. Go to File > Document Setup

6. Go to Margins Tab

7. Check Include Margins

 

Everything works fine now and margins are shown.

Hi,

Unfortunately I'm unable to reproduce this. After creating the document in your first set of steps the margins are shown automatically and 'View > Show Margins' is already enabled! 

Is this still an issue for you?

Definitely No Margins in Window and Mac BUT only if you select Artboard on the setup. As mentioned you need to do the Quickfix..

BUT If you are NOT working with Artboards Fine no problems.

I'm on a Mac and don't have this problem.

Have you tried to hold the ctrl key while starting the App?

This should reset the program to its factory values

 

Have you tried cmd >shift > ; 

?

That should show / hide the guides

Thanks for that Bill, it looks like we do have this issue already logged. (presuming that is what OP has encountered).

 

I'll bump the issue with this post. Thanks for your help!

This is definitely an issue for me too, but noted a further problem

 

1-Create new Document

    - tick "Create Artboard"

    - tick "Include margins", and set a margin e.g. left margin = 100px

 

Workaround go to "Document Setup" untick and retick "Include Margins", margins now show fine

From what I gather this is already known issue based on other post

 

 

Extension of this issue as below:

Open "Document Setup"

Change left margin to 200px

Shows fine on artboard

 

Open "Document Setup" which says left margin is 100px???

So it looks like Document Setup margin remembers original document creation value, but not the changed margin value

This is still an issue with a new install of Designer.  Create new artboard with margins.  They don't show even though Show Margins is ticked.  Ctrl+Shift+P says they are there.  Have to reenter numbers over the old ones a couple of times and they show.

Hi eyeclick,

yes, the problem still occurs with the retail version (.104) but has been solved with the current beta (.109). Perhaps you can give it a try.

Cheers,
Volker

Hi, this is still an issue in the latest version of Affinity Designer (1.6.1).

When creating a New document, select Create Artboard, select Include Margins, add margin values, Click OK, and nothing.... You then have to go into the Document settings and select the Margins tab, and overwrite the margins which show as blank and not ticked???

If Create Artboard is not ticked, the Margins are applied...

Any thoughts.....?

Thanks.
