how to add a new page in designer/

Recommended Posts

Hi handar,

Welcome to Affinity Forums :)

Affinity designer doesn't support pages yet. But you can use artboards as a replacement for now (they will be exported as pages when you export the file as a PDF). You can create an artboard based document going to menu File ▸ New and checking Create artboard in the New Document dialog (on top) or if you already created your document with the desired dimensions, select the Artboard Tool, go to the context and press Insert Artboard to convert your document to an artboard-based document. Click again on the same button to add more artboards or duplicate them as you do with regular objects.

Just guessing, but Serif would probably say that if you want Pages you should use Publisher.

I would just like to chime in here, as a "tester" coming from CorelDraw too. 

As a designer I use pages as a scrap book; when designing a new theme, logo or similar I start working with ideas, then I 'm used to open a new page to work more on some of the ideas, then a new page to work more on even less ideas, and so on. Then i may use one page for keeping fonts which I find relevant for the project, another few pages for icons, etc. A typical logo workflow will contain at least 10 page with different parts of the process to the final product. With Affinity it seems like I have to open a new document for each step in the process, which will make it really messy, in my world at least.

If you are using Designer try using the Artboard tool to create the 'pages' you want to work on as you progress.
