1.7.1.1. Support for Publisher multi-page documents

Recommended Posts

Is this multi page PDF artboard exports?

Nope. It is the ability to open Affinity Publisher files and view all the pages inside, instead of just the one visible when it was saved.

Hi Sean,

Hope things are well. Updated to the latest Designer beta. Opened my 8-page Publisher document in Designer beta, and the canvas only shows the 2-page spread that was visible when saved in Publisher. Let me know if I’m missing anything...

Clip to canvas enabled?

On Windows and Mac there's a little page navigator that lets you move forward or back, or specify a specific page number. We don't get to directly view all the spreads at once (no Pages panel like Publisher has).

I don’t think you’re missing anything! I see the same here, in both AD 1.7.0.4 and AD 1.7.1.1.

Edit: I’ve just found the answer. You need to go to the Document menu and choose ‘Pages’ to display the control for navigating to the other pages/spreads in the document. (For some strange reason, the control on the Context toolbar is labelled ‘Spread’ rather than ‘Pages’.)

Is this only visible when opening a publisher file?

Thanks for that! I throught the Document menu was static haha.

Quick one Serif, thanks for including the Pages option. As it is not always available, such as when using other tools, can imagine people finding it laborious like I have, if aware of the option. How about including an optional pages thumbnail view that is always available when tapped and/or swiped in from the side, similar to Apple Pages? That said, this won’t matter when Publisher comes to iPadOS.

Yes. As @SageBlue has indicated, the Document menu is dynamic.

Are we saying that this is the step to see Affinity Publisher sooner than expected on iPad? Maybe an extra announcement tomorrow at the LIVE event?

No idea. When I read there’s going to be a surprise announcement, like a public beta, can only hope :6_smile:

Where can I find this little page navigator? I don't see neither page navigator nor Document menu on the top :/ And I am a little bit confused because now the only way to open multi page document in AD is to place document. Then I see page navigator so I can double click on placed document to edit its content.

I don't know where the page navigator is on iPad, but  my understanding is that there is one now when you Open (not Place) a multi-page .afpub file.

It’s on the Context toolbar at the bottom of the screen.

I did ask about desktop version. But probably there is no similar functionality on desktop (win) version :/

You posted to a thread in the ‘Designer Beta on iPad’ forum, so it wasn’t obvious that you were asking about the desktop version.

There certainly is, but since I’m on my iPad I’ll leave to someone else to show you how to use it on a Windows PC.

Certainly there is. Down on the lower-left side of your Designer window, next to the Status bar:

It will only be present when you have a multi-page .afpub document opened, though.
