HarryMcGovern reacted to AndreaR in Can you embed fonts?
Hi, I had to face that when sending to print, text with images.
AD have the nice feature to convert text to lines before export. This also will assure you that the print is exactly the same as you see, as long as the text is exported as vectors and no more text+font, without all the issues about how a font is rendered on different systems.
You will want to keep text in the original project, instead.
HarryMcGovern got a reaction from DM1 in Designer not showing px when selected
Regardless, both options on, one on one off, one off one on, it simply doesn’t behave as it should.
If I set a line to a width in px, it should show that setting in the display.
if I set a line to a width in pt, it should show that setting in the display.
The gearwheel setting of the on/off options appears to affect only the document size settings. It also affects the line size display.
It also affects the size display of text sizes.
The thing is, if I set a pen line width to be 5px I expect to see that displayed in the interface as 5px, not 1pt, or what ever it is. And vice versa.
In short, there is something wrong with this paradigm.
I’m not complaining, I understand where 1st release software comes from. I hope it’s not a ‘feature’ though.
So hopefully it’s something that will be looked at. It’s pointless allowing the user to set any measurement type from the list of options, when once accepted it simply displays what it wants.
HarryMcGovern got a reaction from Alfred in Text is appearing as bordered with black fill?
Sorry, it appears to have fixed itself. I’ve no idea what was happening, but I had some text on another with some fx turned on.
so I un-check all the options in that, which crashed the app entirely, and opened it up again. Created a new layer, and it seemed to be working ok.
thanks for the reply, I’ll see what happens.
Can I actually attach a file here, or just the image?
HarryMcGovern got a reaction from Alfred in Is there a pdf or other book for the ipad
There is one on Affinity Revolution. It’s the only one I can find. It’s not too expensive and runs fine on Apple Books. Probably others.
Odd sales model, but whatever. I bought it and it looks ok.
HarryMcGovern reacted to DM1 in How do I invert a recolour layer/mask
After adjusting the colour and painting on the mask, select the main image in layer studio before applying another Recolour.
You can also get good results using gradient maps. Just select suitable shadow, mid tone and highlight colours for hair, skin, clothing etc, invert gradient layer and use black and white brushes on gradient mask to hide or show the colours. This method takes into account highlights a shadows. Change the blend mode on layer option to colour or any blend that gives the desired result, and adjust opacity for realistic tones.
HarryMcGovern reacted to thomaso in What is the equivalent to InDesigns Page Tools in Publisher
In AfPublisher you have ...
– the "Spread Setup..." (via tool bar or right-click on page icon in "Pages Panel") and
– the "Constraints Panel" (if it's about IDs Liquid Layout).
You can not rotate a single page view in AfPublisher.
You can rotate the complete document view around 90º, 180º and 270º.
(in AfDesigner you can rotate the complete design area in steps of 15º).
HarryMcGovern reacted to Alfred in Looking for a similar totorial for Desktop Photos
I’m not on my desktop machine at the moment, so I can’t post a screenshot, but you should find that when you hover over the various tools you get a tooltip displaying the name of the tool.
Keep plugging away, Harry. You’ll get there!
HarryMcGovern reacted to carl123 in Looking for a similar totorial for Desktop Photos
Probably not. Try some tutorials specifically written for the Desktop not the iPad.
Once you get familiar with all the desktop Tools and Commands then following an iPad tutorial will be much easier
PS The Flood Select Tool is on the Tools Panel docked to the left-hand side of the screen

Now, for what it's worth, Neat Image will find the Affinity plugin directory as well, and install it there for you.
Product installed into:
/Applications/Neat Image v8 for Photoshop

Very nice, very well behaved.
HarryMcGovern reacted to CraigB in Affinity Publisher for iPad
First: Publisher is not on my purchase list at the moment. But, it would definitely be if...
I have several years worth of Indesign files (stored as IDML) that I need to be able to repurpose: starting a new book from a previously completed one (with the basic styles in place) is a key time-saver and I have clients ask for revisions to old work on a regular basis... So, import of IDML files is the first update. It makes no sense to throw all my babies out with the InDesign bathwater.
Ported to iPadOS:
And now with the release of iPadOS the iPad supports a mouse: which for me is a sea change that will allow the iPad to replace my MacBook when traveling. IF Publisher (like the other Affinity apps) is also ported to iOS (iPadOS) that would be the clincher and I'd be in for both desktop and mobile apps.
With both of those complete I could finally delete the very last Adobe app from my workflow.
