Affinity Publisher: Centering Objects on a Facing Spread

Recommended Posts

The Facing Spread shows Page 1 and Page 2. I want to center some objects just on page 1, but when I choose this, it centers to right in-between page 1 and page 2. Is there a way to isolate the centering/alignments to just one of the pages?

In the Pages Studio double click on the page, either the left or right page and that will give you the page centred not the spread. If however you want the snapping check to see if you have the correct snapping candidates chosen.

I tried this, but it's not working. This is what I'm getting:

Just drag the box to the center of page 1 and a line should appear down the middle of the page for the box to snap to.

If it does not, make sure snapping is enabled, including either "snap to spread" with "include spread mid points" or the margin equivalent of that option - these are in the box that appears when you click on the arrow next to the magnet on the main toolbar across the top of the window.
