Adjusting text frame on master page is way too slow

Recommended Posts

I am trying Affinity Publisher to create book (300 pages).

Adjusting basic text frame on master pages (when adjusting book size etc.) is a way to slow. It is almost impossible to change it!

Publisher probably instantly redraws all pages… what might be a nice feature for a poster, but in this scenario, it makes no sense.

Adjusting the size of a text frame on the Master will require updating all the pages you've applied it to, reflowing all the text between linked frames on the document pages, etc.

I'm not sure how it could work differently, unless editing the Master was a 2-phase operation, with a commit button that actually applied the changes.

Hi both,

Sorry for the delayed reply. 

Any chance you can attach your .afpub file so we can have a look? 

Thanks

Gabe.

I also have a problem with the text frame tool.

 have a text frame on one of my master pages that I cannot remove. At best it turns pink.

I also cannot edit this field.

And I cannot place any other text field.

I closed the app and reopened but that didn't help. Looks like the whole document has been corrupted.

If it's a file you can let others look at, perhaps we can see something wrong.

How about to do the changes on a (temporary) copy of the master page (which will not be applied to any document page during changes) and then, after all changes are done, you either a.) replace via copy/paste the master page content or b.) delete the master page link from the document pages + assign the new master page to them.

Thank you Walt. I made two mistakes. 1. I had content on the Master pages. 2. I tried to delete a text frame when in text frame tool - works in Adobe, but here it's different, I had to move to the move tool to delete a text box. Solved, thank you.
