  1. Hi Chris, Thanks for the advice, and apologies for not replying sooner (I've been away). I tried this and it didnt work, however, it made think of resetting the user defaults in Preferences and that did the trick, so thank you for your suggestion, in a round about way it got me to the solution . Cheers - Zaphodz
  2. I had an issue with a layer in AP not showing any changes made to it, so I deleted the layer and carried on without issue. I was working is seperated view mode and hit Tab to hide all working palettes, when I hit Tab again the Tools palette and Studio palettes reappeared but not the Context Toolbar palette. If I leave separated view mode the Context Toolbar reappears, but disappears again if I enter separated view mode again. I've tried the obvious things like selecting "Show Context Toolbar", rebooting AP, restarting my iMac (27", early 2015 OSX 10.9.5, 24Gb) and even upgrading from 1.4.1 to 1.4.2 but the Context Toolbar is still missing. I have been using AP for over six months without any serious problems so this seems strange. I had a look through the forum and can't see any other reports of this problem so any ideas or suggestions as to how to get the Context Menu back would be much appreciated. Thanks - Zaphodz
  3. Big PLUS ONE on the plugins support! (Topaz, NIK, DxO Filmpack, On1). And a list of compatible plugins that is kept up to date would be really useful :) Finding AP more and more awesome the more I work with it, thank you!
  4. BIG +1 for plugin support! Would love to be able to use Topaz Adjust, Clarity, Detail and Denoise. AP is a truly great application (thank you devs!) but being young still it doesn't "do it all" yet, I know, we must be patient...
  5. I've just spent a couple of hours with AD demo version and am very impressed, amazing job, big thumbs up to the Affinity dev team! It seems very intuitive (to me), I could be doing commercial work like UI, Web page mock-ups, logos etc. on this right now, however, I couldn't do print design with it as the bleed, trim & registration marks and PDF types features are not yet available, but am very keen to know when these are likely to appear - any hint this? I am currently using Sketch & Pixelmator for non-print work and still hanging on to AI for small print jobs. For me, Sketch and AI will go once AD has pro printing features, and Pixelmator (much as I like it as a PS alternative, it does have limitations) will go when APhoto (which I have the beta of) is ready. Can't wait for Publisher too, although I don't do much in the way of larger print documents now. One other thing, I know it has been mentioned on here before, so a big +1 for pages/artboards. Can't wait to finish with Adobe...
  6. +1 on this. This would be very useful for small print design jobs. I know this is not meant to be an InDesign/Quark Xpress competitor, but multiple pages/artboards would be a very welcome addition for double sided leaflets, 6 page gatefolds etc.
