  1. Thanks, interesting information. I’m sure Serif is looking into it. I’ll look at it again myself of course because it’s a great idea. My comment about starting with a palette actually would work for some. But of course isn’t the answer for everyone. thanks fir the input. robert
  2. So it seems like Global Colours are a late addition to the iPad. It's even an option in Affinity Photo now. But what is sadly lacking as usual is any clear idea of how to use it. The in-app help file is pretty basic. In fact it's a cut down version of the Desktop help. So this is a 'Roll My Own" - Basically. Create a Document palette . Or use an existing Palette that may already exist for your particular document that you have created as you go along with the original design, or that you have created colour by colour. So if you ahve an existing palette, you can only use it to note the numbers of the colours you want to use. So effectively you will have a Standard Palette, and a Global palette. But you can't create a 'palette from the Document' as in the desktop version. And you can't import one from the Desktop version anyway even if you did do it there. So let's say you don't have a document palette already. Step 1. Create a new document palette. Call it "Global Colours" just for arguments sake. Step 2. From the Sandwich in Studio Preferences, Add Global colour. Up pops the Colour Wheel or slider what ever your choice is, and from that you can now create a totally new colour. You can't use an existing colour, just create a new one - even if it's the same as an existing colour you have to set the colour parameters. H:42 S:90 L:50 for example. That's it. Hmmm you think. Why would I do this? Because, you need to Remember To Do This When You Are Starting Your Document. iPad Designer or Photo. Every new colour you are going to use, create it as a Global Colour first if you think there is a remote chance that you will need to modify your colours later. And that could be the case. Perhaps you have a Brochure that is the Same, but different colours in Summer - Autumn - Winter - Spring. Or even a children's story book where the characters can change colours? When you come to do your Winter Brochure, you open the document, select the Autumn (mustard) Global Colours and change them to Winter (ice) colours and the colours will change in the document where ever you previously had mustard colours. which is Step 3 Edit a global colour. Select Swatches and your Global Colours palette. Long press on the chosen colour and select Edit. Choose a new colour All related objects will change accordingly. It does seem a bit longwinded but imagine trying to change all the spots on a Leopard from brown to black. Or all the green leaves on a tree to autumn leaves... If anyone else has any great ideas related to this option on the iPad, I'm all ears. Robert
  3. Yes, everything as normal. I’ve discovered the guides only seem to show when there is something on the page. Unlike grids. so it’s probably ok. tganks.
  4. I can see the Guide marks in the Rulers, but not on the screen in Publisher 1.9. Is there a fix for this maybe? Thanks Robert
  5. Hi, has anybody actually solved this. I'm now in Publisher 1.9 and the same problem. Guides show in the rulers but no where else. and its 2021...
  6. This is annoying. Installing Beta automatically changes the Default opening app to the Beta away from the previous Release.
  7. Can't seem to get more than one Swatch created and listed. Publisher. Ok, very strange. ShutdownPublisher. Restarted. Problem gone. Damn I hate that.
  8. Hi, yes, in this case though, all the assets are there, it's just not possible to see the ones that are black or gray.
  9. 1. The ability to import and save colour palettes. 2. A plain white background in the Assets panel so I can actually clearly see the assets. Some are ok, but some are invisible. Black on black background. Perhaps the ability to List them as well as display icons on the iPad.. Item two applies to all apps and all platforms. thanks
  10. @walt.farrell It’s the same on the Mac. On the iPad there’s no list option unfortunately. I have tried changing the UI from Light/Dark etc. Even screen brightness, but nothing I can do makes a difference. So it’s only some of the assets. As you note, the dark ones. They just disappear in the panel. Oh well. I guess I’ll just have to live with it. I’ll put it in the wish list. thanks for having a look.
  11. Assets not displaying, although they are there. Now with 1.9 this is a bit of a problem. Assets are not displaying correctly in a lot of cases. Most of the ‘free’ assets that come with the update are there, but just don’t display in the assets space. The dust you see on the canvas was applied by just randomly touching the asset space and selecting ‘insert’ . Not really ideal! As you can see in the assets studio panel there is nothing displayed. Is this the reason people are complaining about the assets not installing? and can this be fixed?
  12. Thanks, This was really helpful. SuperVectorizer 2 looks very useful. I've just purchased a copy.
  13. Anyway, the bottom line is, that unless one actually does a Vector drawing from scratch, or imports a vectorized image in the first place, then what ever one saves an image as it won’t be a vector image unless it starts out that way. A Vector image with anything else in it, will behave like a Pixel image. and that’s ok. I can live with that. Now I know exactly how Designer behaves I can get some clarity with my design flows. thanks for the insights folks.
