  1. Since the upgrade of Mac OS to Catalina 10.15.4, the ronding corner tool in Designer 1.8.3 does not work anymore like it should. In a complete design, the first corner can be rounded but the next one makes the program stop in an alternative of the wel known "not responding" that we know from the Windows platform. When a make the same square in a different and empty document, the tools works but only on three of four corners, the fourth corner can not be activated when in round corner mode, in other modes it can be activated. See attached file square.afdesign
  2. Hi Walt, Yes it is upgraded to 1.8.3, I have it on automatic, so every update available I accept, but it shows the same screen when starting up the Beta version
  3. Hi Walt, I have purchased Designer in July 2019 as 1.7 I believe, but it is upgraded to 1.8.2 on Mac
  4. Hi MEB, I first have uninstalled the old version of Designer and then installed the new one which I downloaded via your link, but I het the same screen. The normal Designer works still.
  5. Hi MEB, The app I have installed and is autmatically upgraded to 1.8.2, so that is not the problem. I only want to know if changes are worked on in new versions. I have an old version of Designer Beta but since version 1.8.0 it does not open and ask for a key, or gives the option to install from App Store, but their I can't find it [EDIT] Second image removed due to privacy concerns - e-mail exposed[/]
  6. I have purchased Photo and Publisher directly form Affinity site, but designer via AppStore from Apple. Both Photo and Publisher are in my Affinity account but Publisher isn't. That maybe logic but for the Beta version a key is required which I can't find. Is there somebody who knows how to find the key from a purchase via Appstore?
  7. I have made in Photo Beta a part of a picture a gradient in a rectangle to get a different color. Then as afphoto file placed in Publisher it doesn't show the the gradient. To be sure of correct use of the tools I exported it as an PNG, and then the gradient is clearly visible. Replacing file is not giving any result. transparency-gradient.afpub
  8. Yes, you're right. My mistake. No designer is on my wish-list but to test three programs in the same period is too much to handle. I'm testing Photo and Publisher for a couple of weeks now and as you see I'm still struggling with the differences and capabilities.
  9. The menu shows already Edit in Publisher but it is inactive. The reason why I was looking into this option was that I have a need to open the linked file the publisher document. When you double click the picture you have the possibility to enhance the picture in Publisher with the masks which where already used before in Photo. This enhancement is only done in the publisher document and not in the file itself and from that moment on it is an embedded file and you have to mark it as that, otherwise the file will be replaced when document is reopened. This only works with .afphoto files not with .psd, layer masks in .psd are not visible in Publisher. I agree with you that changing the picture in Photo by open it from Photo is the most stable workflow, but I'm really searching for an option that is similar to Indesign/Photoshop which is; activating picture, click on the edit button, picture opens in PS, save after enhancement and linked picture is replaced in Indesign.
  10. Hi Walt, Thanks for you explanation, something learned today, I didn't see the Edit in Publisher before now but for my understanding, is the place/linked file changed and saved when you use Edit in Photo and than return by Edit in Publisher? Or is the made correction a kind of embedded change in the Publisher document? The workflow I've chosen at the moment is to export files from Photo 1.6 and Photo 1.7 Beta as .psd files because that is a format that can be used in all Affinity program/version and gives fall back to the Adobe environment. For me it works, but what I really would like to test is the speed I can develop with Photo 1.7 and Publisher in comparison with Indesign and Photoshop. What I have seen is that the combination Publisher/Photo 1.6 is 25% slower than Adobe Suite, but with Photo 1.7 I can do much better, but the fact that all files have to be exported and the correction and replacing don't run automatically I can't compare it in de way I would like.

  11. I'm trying and testing all available options in Publisher to see if I understand them and how they differ from Indesign. The one I didn't test sofar was <<Edit in Photo>> because it seems to be so logic. But now I test it and I have no idea what it is meant to do. At this stage it has no benefit at all because Publisher closes the document you work in. Let me explain what I did. First I have made corrections on a picture in Photo 1.6 I linked the .afphoto file into a multipage publisher document, but the corrections made in the picture does not fit that page to my taste By using File>Edit in Photo I expect that the picture will be opened in AFPhoto 1.6 to change corrections and after saving the picture it will automatically be replaced in Publisher. But what really happens I don't understand. By using File>Edit Photo the complete spread is opened in AFPhoto 1.7 Beta, (the one you don't want to use). At that moment the document in Publisher is closed and you can't open it because it is in use. If you safe it in Photo 1.7 you probably only save the spread you opened but that is something I can't check because Publisher can't open files from the Beta version. I understand that not all is working well in Beta versions, but can somebody explain what it should do when the bugs have been taken out? Kind regards, LeoC
