Hi,

first of huge fan of the fact that I can almost trow out my indesign. Props for Affinity!!

What I noticed when creating a new document in AFP is that you do not have the option to enter the amount of bleed you 

want on the document. 

 

This is to be found afterwards in under: File -> document setup -> bleed

would we nice to have this in the new document creation dialog as well

Furthermore, when you add a new page, you will have to enter the bleed again as it will not automatically apply to new pages. This looks like a bug to me.

Definitely needed in the New Document dialogue box. I’d also like to see a Margins and Columns option added which is the same as InDesign. I use both features on every document I create.

Agree with all, should be at document creation, should not need setting per-page or on a master page, and amount on each side should be linked by default (so I only type 3mm once), with an option to unlink them if needed. That's in addition to bleed being a visible guide off the page. This applies to Designer too, and I know visible guides of bleed has long been asked for there, so really hoping this can be done in one hit for all the 1.7 versions :)

I just tried it and it didn't seem to work: If you set a bleed in the master page and apply that master to the pages in the document, those pages will still not have a bleed.

Additionally (although I'm not sure if this is a bug): If you've got a four-page brochure and export the single pages, the "inner bleed" between pages 2 and 3 will display correctly but not between pages 1 and 4.

Yep. Sync lock needed both for Margin controls and Bleed controls (once added). Also page numbering. None of these things are in the New Document dialog. All need to be for first release IMO.

Hello and thanks for Affinity Publisher :17_heart_eyes:

I agree about the bleed area, it should be a setting for every new document, and it should apply to all the pages.
The bleed area, and the edges of the page, should also be visible. :11_blush:
