  1. Past hour
  2. I just uninstalled everything Windows allowed me to uninstall, so everything probably all of those in the first picture and the ones still installed are in the second picture.
  3. Problem is still alive. I often used that trick with changing between mouse and pen... but that leads into desaster too. After Changing tools and focus or DESIGNER / PUBLISHER I cannot click anymore. Mouse is dead - it´s not a sleeping parrot... it´s a dead one. Publisher is not longer responding.
  4. The main Toolbar at the top of the screen has 4 icons/buttons for Auto Levels Auto Contrast Auto Colours Auto White Balance You can record one or more of them in a macro and replay them in a batch job as required.
  5. Perhaps I am just more 'gifted' than most but I found it very easy to get it wrong without using the CMD rotate option I mentioned in my last post, because it is so easy to change the scale otherwise.
  6. Is there a way to check / track what devices are currently using the license key? I'm asking in the case that I have to deactivate my license on one device to apply it to another. Thanks in advance for any answers!
  7. How do you ensure that the whole group of objects is rotated until the lines become exactly vertical? I could not figure out how to do that. Also, using a 0.2 px square like in the second @PixelPest gif, I found it very difficult after moving the transform origin to the lower left corner of the square to get that corner to snap to the line, even with both snapping options for the Point Transform Tool enabled. It wasn't impossible, just very touchy, & required zooming in quite far to make sure it was snapped to the line. When I did get that part right, I could rotate the square while holding down the CMD key to make sure the scale did not change; otherwise, even tiny changes in the scale while rotating would throw the results off. When I got all that right, I could duplicate the line, & finally snap it to the right edge of the rotated square. To be honest about it, I found it much, much easier & less error prone to use the expand stroke method I mentioned earlier.

    Levels Histogram (Graph) not appearing

    Still having the same problem Mojave 10.14.6 and AP 4.7.2. Very annoying Is there any "working on it" going on ?

    Voodoo Man (Character Head)

    This is just a quick character head concept from a sketch I did yesterday. Brought it into AP for inking, toning, and finish work. https://www.artstation.com/artwork/k4dGLn
  10. > Indeed, the color models are different and I think it will not be possible to have the same black on the background as on the image.  Why not? I am rather sure it will. You can double-click on your placed resource (the fruit image) and in the opening document window set the documents color space to that of your main document. Possibly you even can set the black background color behind the apple? What file type is the fruit, and does it have the black included? If you like upload your recent .afpub once more. (Maybe it just had been corrupted during upload process before)
  11. Great, the problem is fixed in the new beta (...3.476) Cheers

    One more nudge distance option.

    InDesign has one logical and very useful feature. When you click on up/down arrow next to a value field, it is rounded to the nearest whole number and the next clicks are in steps of +1/-1. No decimals after that.
  13. Thanks for confirming that, I've opened your RAW file and these rotate buttons function as expected. To return these to your Toolbar please open Affinity in the Develop Persona, then go to View>Customise Toolbar. In the window that opens you should see the default Toolbar set at the bottom, simply drag and drop this default set into place on the Toolbar, then press close. You should now find these options available when developing your images!
  14. Fine instructions. The result is exactly what I wanted. Many thanks!

    layers panel

    Thanks to everyone. Taking out every panel one by one and putting it back one at a time, worked and the length was back to previous size.
  16. Ah, yeah, updating to the latest 13.1 beta seems to have fixed it. Thanks!
  17. Thanks for confirming the bug! I had searched for Bug Reports on the forum before posting, but I didn't find an area to post bug reports so I posted here. Sorry about that. Can admin move the thread to the proper forum?
  18. Nope, those buttons are missing on my screen. Image attached. DSC00282.ARW
  19. Smee Again

    Dodge an Burn

    Yes, thanks for the info. Instead of using "overlay", I do the same with "soft light" and prefer the control I see with this blend mode. Works better for Smee, however, your mileage may vary. Yes, had been a PS user, then after being disappointed with Serif's Photoplus (which may been more to do with my inexperience than the software's failure to perform), started using PSP. Didn't get into coreldraw as I could get the results I needed in Drawplus (yes, simple work was the limit of what I would attempt).
  20. You can't get it wrong with a square, but it's a bit hit and miss with a circle. If you notice Pixel pests red line isn't at right angles with the line when using a circle, it's off probably by about 2 or 3 degrees.
  21. Right, but, why not just implement those as factory defaults, instead of making the user do the job? My point was about comfort, as that's what makes a software... well... more comfortable. Apart from that, i really don't see where APhoto should have some auto corrections like PS Elements has. Maybe i just don't know where to look.
  22. I recommend checking out our Spotlight article on RAW files - RAW, Actually - as RAW files are handled completely differently to raster files such as JPEG etc.
  23. Well, as soon there is a connection to the internet or the local network, all new or modified files get synchronized. The images are linked and on my local workstation.
  24. Actually it could also be so that Affinity Publisher specifically uses the actual ligature codepoints, while InDesign uses ligature attributes, and just "ti" and "tt" as single characters. So whether a ligature is shown or not, depends on the viewer (i.e., if hardcoded glyph, all viewers can show it, if an attribute, the viewer must support the ligature as a feature), and whether a ligature codepoint is used as a glyph or not, when copy pasted, depends on the destination software (i.e., whether the destination software decomposes the hardcoded glyph as separate characters, or supports use of hardcoded ligature glyph itself not as an attribute but glyph). See below how PDF-XChange can edit and copy the selected ligature in the PDF created with Affinity Publisher ("ti" as a hard-coded glyph), which PDF-XChange can copy paste to duplicate it: ...and below editing the PDF created by InDesign, where "t" and "i" are separate glyphs which are rendered as ligature glyph "ti" because it has been coded as formatting attribute: Just guessing. I do not know internals of PDF encoding, but this kind of makes sense.
  25. What you are seeing in the tooltips is the variation in the X and Y directions/axis, not the perpendicular distance. Rotate the whole group of objects until the lines become verticals and compare the distance again that way if you want - you will see the variation is now equal to the desired distance.
