  1. Today I got the update 257, now it's working
  2. 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
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.

  6. 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
