  1. Changed Snapping help topic. From: To exclude an object from snapping: To: To exclude an object from being a snapping candidate:
  2. Hi jk1,

    Could you please tell me if you're still getting scripting problems with the Publisher Help file on build or later.

    help file problems .139

    Thank you - fixed in build after 139. Andy Capstick Affinity docs
  4. RobinP - thanks for the info about the Media Browser reference in Publisher Help. This is no longer available in 1.7 on which Publisher is based. \Andy Capstick

    Simple beginner question

    Polygonious - can you see the Help at all? Please describe what's not working. Selecting Help Menu > Affinity Publisher Beta Help should show the Get Answers fast landing page with TOC at left. Andy Capstick
  6. Hi SirPL, Fixed this in Windows and macOS. Both should have entries which both went to a non-existent topic!! Andy Capstick
  7. Hi R-C-R, Yes the help behaviour isn't great but it's Help viewer-related I'm afraid. The blue progress bar when searching is relatively new (High Sierra?) but I find it a bit slower than I'd like. Some things.. - If you find any returned results that are odd please let me know. - Any "???" text returned in search descriptions is a docs issue and we need to catch up with these over the beta. - Anyone else not getting the "Get Answers Fast" landing page loading reasonably (putting the search function aside for the moment?) \Andy Capstick
  8. R-C-R - I've made those additions to the Photo iPad help. I haven't gone as far as mentioning bluetooth support for the moment as this needs to be tested by QA first. Thanks for your input.
  9. Thanks DM1 - sorry I missed that. Well spotted. Now fixed. \Andy
  10. Thanks for taking the time R-C-R - I'll take a look and update. Not sure whether to mention 3rd party Bluetooth keyboard support just yet until I get QA to advise and have a look at testing too. Sean? Do you have an Ankor (not an anchor) Cheers Andy

    Affinity Photo (for Windows) Help refers to "Finder"

    Hi chaps, I've fixed this for in-app Photo help; affinity.help will be updated in due course. Sorry no idea when the next Beta update will be available, but the help will be updated in that version. AndyC
  13. DM1 - I've removed the incorrect statement regarding inability to use the Apple Pencil when cloning. Thanks for that. The Import From Camera UI seemed self explanatory so I mentioned Import from Camera only in passing in Get started>Opening and importing. "Import From Camera captures and opens a photo with your iPad device. You can shoot RAW, bracketed HDR, toggle face detection and display on-screen aids such as a histogram and vectorscope." Thanks Andy

    Gradient tool overwrites image

    Hi DM1, This is expected behaviour. You'd normally apply a Fill layer above with a gradient applied to that, then drop its opacity. This would be non-destructive and would also let you redefine the gradient path anytime. Of course you can apply the gradient to adjustment and filter layers too. I've looked at the help file topic Gradient editing and included a sentence to make this a little clearer for yourself and other users with: "If you apply a gradient directly to your image's layer you'll destroy it. Instead, apply a gradient to a separate fill, adjustment, filter, mask or vector layer." Regards AndyC
  15. Alfred, I've now added a comment in Designer help that states.. "Applying a rounded corner to a shape created with any of Affinity's Shape tools will convert that shape to curves. From that point, you won't be able to make use of the Shape tool's inherent 'morphing' behaviour."
