Page numbers from master page in front

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

First off: WOW! This is the first serious alternative to Indesign for me, loving it so far!!!

As you are asking for feature requests, two things for me, i'd love to see:

- If I have page numbers in my master page, all set to "bring to front", I'd love to see them above any image I place on the page and not having to push every full page image to the background for the page numbers to appear.
- As many have alrerady requested: A possibilty to import existing Indesign files.

I'm definately a buyer for Designer as soon as it's ready!
Thanks for this awesome work!

Welcome to the Serif Affinity forums :)

The master pages are only at the back by default. If you drag a master page 'layer' to the top of the layers studio it will be on top of the rest of the page. 

I tend to add a blank layer to layers studio before adding content, which makes organising multiple master pages easier. (multiple master pages can be ctrl+dragged onto pages in the pages studio)

Thanks Patrick,

but that still means I need to do that on every page?

I tried, but a soon as I add a page, place a full-page-image on it, the added layer is above the master page layer that contains the page numbers. Havent found a way to tell the master page layer, that it should always be on top of the others.

Thanks,
Rainer

It would be really useful if it were possible to add a Master page to the top of the stack on all pages, rather than having to drag it there on each page individually.

Agree.

I designed a design on Affinity Designer, and copy-paste it to Affinity Publisher. I have to drag the Masterpage to the top manually. Is there any option to make Masterpage in the top position by deffault?
