    Place Image Tool

    Hi everyone - AndyC from Affinity docs here - it's highly unlikely that docs will document functionality in advance of it appearing in the UI. Mainly because we see the code at the same time as beta testers see it, and we update for the subsequent build. :-) Assume that we've had a hiccup in docs for issues like this - just flag it and I'll fix in pronto! \AndyC

    Affinity Photo Workbook

    Hi Joe, I'm the editor of the Workbook so I thought I'd reply directly. I'm a bit concerned about the many indexing errors you have encountered. I had a look at p. 204 and the vignette filter is actually mentioned at the bottom of the page so i'm happy with that. The other reference on p. 166 hasn't got an index entry so I will get that fixed for a future reprint. If you're able to point out some of the other errors i'd be grateful. In the meantime, I'm going to have our QA team look at the indexing generally to spot any issues. Unfortunately we don't publish corrections for our workbooks. Thanks for your feedback. /AndyC

    export options

    Hi Robin3, Raster images (JPG, PNG, etc) are raster anyway - the export options only affect downsampling of those in different ways. Do you mean if you placed a vector image such as SVG you were expecting some level of edibility after export but you didn't get any? I'll investigate further if so. \AndyC

    export options

    thomaso - i've tweaked the help now.. PDF(for web): change "image downsampling to 450 dpi" to "downsample images of >450 dpi"PDF (for print): change change "image downsampling to 108 dpi" to "downsample images of >108 dpi" Andy Capstick Affinity docs

    export options

    Hi blw, I'll get that indexing looked at and ensure export is included in the topic's metadata. \Andy
  6. R-C-R, We are in Beta at the moment and I'm expecting more input from our developers and or course Beta testers. I'm hoping to have comprehensive documentation for release. \Andy
  7. R-C-R/Polygonius, The procedural texture filter documentation is accessible from the integrated Help's Filters and effects>Colour filters topic. You can also access it from Introduction>New features in this version topic along with all other 1.7 features. \Andy Capstick

  9. Hi jk1,

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

      Hello Andy,

      Sorry for my late reply. Apparently I didn't have the forum notifications enabled and stumbled over your question only one minute ago after posting a new question.

      Yes, I still get the scripting problems when I click the Affinity Publisher 'Help' button or use the ''F1' key to open the help window. This also happens in my copy of Affinity Photo I've installed both on Windows 7 (I don't like Windows 10).

      I wonder if it is related to my language configuration. I'm located in Germany, but have the en-US language version of Windows 7 installed. However, my Affinity software is also installed in English.

    help file problems .139

    Thank you - fixed in build after 139. Andy Capstick Affinity docs
  11. 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
  13. Hi SirPL, Fixed this in Windows and macOS. Both should have entries which both went to a non-existent topic!! Andy Capstick
  14. 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
  15. 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.
