  1. iPadOS 15 seems to be able to rename OCIO folders to packages natively (avoid iCloud's Downloads folder though). Docs have reworked the iPad OCIO topic as a result. Comments welcome as ever.
  2. @siaccarino Welcome to the Serif Affinity forums Morning - i've made a change to topics like this so that Windows users will at least see some topic text being reported. In this instance, that scanning is not available directly from within the app. Also interested in discussions about help being conditionally displayed according to the reader's browser user agent. We decided to take this approach so our Mac users wouldn't be offered unnecessary Windows information in-app and vice versa for Windows users. It's something docs could look at in V2.0. Further opinions?
  3. Juan T - The videos don't usually have supporting assets or project files to support them - sometimes a video is created from a published sample like Lifestyle magazine (Help > Welcome > View Samples). The idea is to use the principle of what's being taught in your own designs. When the Publisher Workbook is released there will be accompanying resources with that. Regards Andy Capstick Affinity Documentation
  4. Hi Louie, Thanks for taking the time to give some comprehensive feedback. I'm going to take your comments on board and certainly will look at improvements to the structure of the help system for the next main release. Regards Andy Capstick
  5. Jerry - you could consider the Affinity Designer Workbook - this publication has real designers creating designs from start to finish.
  6. Updated in docs for 1.8.2.x - making the Mac/Windows distinction. meeow.. Andy Capstick
  7. Hi SFT/cmu, I'm the editor for the upcoming Affinity Publisher Workbook, which I can confirm is in development and will be a hardcopy deliverable just like the Affinity Designer Workbook and Affinity Photo Workbook. No news for you on release date. Regards Andy Capstick
  8. Hi R-C-R, This is incorrect in Photo Help at the moment. I've corrected this for 1.8. \Andy Capstick

  13. Hi Walt, This is with the Photo lead developer to decide what to do. I've mentioned on our internal fault reporting system about the implications when using light UI so I'd imagine they will consider that. The workbooks will change to reflect the UI, i.e. whatever works for both UI styles. \AndyC
