    Issues with Location panel

    Hi, Affinity Docs here.. I've removed the history description - this option must have existed at some point (hence screenshot) but has now been removed for 1.8.
  2. Hi R-C-R, This is incorrect in Photo Help at the moment. I've corrected this for 1.8. \Andy Capstick
  3. @baal_uriel I noticed these tutorials recently... https://www.facebook.com/groups/AffinityDesignerPhotoPublisher/permalink/1347440308757896/ leading to this playlist Regards Andy Capstick
  4. This is wrong in docs. I've removed it from the help. Thanks for spotting it. Andy Capstick
  5. Fixed. Just an oversight as MEB suggested :-)

    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

    Hi, Workbook update.. I've logged that the screenshot on p.31 will need to be looked at on reprint (changing from white to light blue). The 'white' area is implied to be luminance as the text on the left spread states "The Histogram Panel shows the distribution of Red, Green, Blue and Luminance values for the image, layer or current marquee selection." Cheers Andy

    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
