Thanx for update of AP. I realized that I can't switch off the Edit guide tool. It's still active and guides are unlocked.

Image placement policy. I'ts great the possibility to choose which way you prefer. I'm sure that more obvious for layout's making is Linked preffered and in some rarely cases people choose embeded option. I vote for swapping those two “options“ – default Linked preffered.

I have made a table with the first version filled with data from a .txt file (all in one colum). Then put everything in the right place (three columns and 20 rows). only the last row cell wasn't displaying as it should. Was trying to remove the content from the last cell and publisher crashed. Now with todays version it doesn't crashed anymore, but it is still not in the right position.

So after the commercial version comes out, how long do you think it will take for another award to come out? My guess is, not long.

Keep it up, guys. As someone still starting out and trying to get my stuff out there, Affinity has been a giant help for me.


The website is still a work in progress. The "Comics" and "Shop" sections are not yet ready. Feel free to connect with me and let me know what you like or what can be improved. You can contact me here, on my contact page, YouTube channel, or Twitter account. Thanks and have a great day!

Since I update this morning @ 05:09, I've had 4 crashes with just a blank document open, setting columns and gutter. 

one thing I just don't understand is why can't I set the margin, columns, and gutter at the same time.

Mac OSX 10.13.6 (17G65)

I've added all 4 crash reports and will wait to download the beta at a later time.

I can't open up a document I created with the previous beta.  This new beta crashes every single time with that document.  

Yep, same here. CTD on my 2017 MacBook Pro as soon as I open a document created in the previous Beta. I can copy and paste assets from Affinity Designer into Publisher with no ill effects though.

Please can you make a new thread in this forum for your problem, and attach the file needed to replicate it . (if you want tag @patrick connor to get my attention )
