  1. I'm using the latest version of both Photo and Designer and didn't have this problem before updating to the latest version The bug happens in all documents, both newly created and older projects opened up in this version. I'm on the latest update of Windows 10 and have a NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070. Here's how to create the bug (It requires both Designer and Photo): Start a new project in Designer Create at least one Artboard (This is essential) Create a few objects (or import a few images) and make them overlap (may not be necessary to overlap them, but do this t
  2. Sure Say I have a document with art I've prepared for a web page. It's everything from header images, icons, slider images, thumbnails and everything you can think of (containing both vector and pixel art) I use Artboards most of the time for larger images, such as headers, slider images and backgrounds, since these are listed by default in the ExportPersona. For smaller assets like icons logotypes and similar I like to group into "category"-artboards to keep it organized and easy to find. Setting these up for export I need an extra step however, which is creating slices.
  3. It works as you would expect at least and I haven't run into any unexpected issues. However, the workflow isn't optimal since I still have to jump between Publisher (when editing images) and Designer/Photo when I want to export slices/artboards. But it's the best workflow I've come up with so far.
  4. Ah, true. Sorry, I didn't notice that comment was made by a staffer before. I guess we wait and see then. Hopefully (for me at least) the demand for a feature like this will become high enough for the developers to consider, if it's not already in their pipe-line (but in a secret and mysterious way for now, or something)
  5. Ah, alright. Fair enough. Yeah, I guess only time will tell what will happen from here. I really really hope we at least get a similar way for jumping between vector/pixel-editing without using Publisher though.
  6. Sure it cuts down the time for executing the actual command. What I meant was that the actual time it takes for the document to close down and open can be long depending on size of document, if you have large baked in images in it and so on.
  7. I don't agree that StudioLink is the marketing name for the >>two personas in Affinity Publisher<<. The Affinity-team never says this feature is meant to stay limited to Publisher. Quotes they use to describe StudioLink are (just to mention a few): (https://affinityspotlight.com/article/focus-on-studiolink/) "With the game-changing ability to fully integrate with other Affinity apps, the introduction of StudioLink in Affinity Publisher" Here they only say that the StudioLink-feature first was introduced in Publisher. No that it's meant to remain unique to Publisher.
  8. I'm not sure I follow what you're saying here. I didn't know there were tools missing when using the Photo or Designer StudioLink in Publisher. What are those tools you mean? On your second point, isn't the idea of StudioLink to give the user all toolbars, shortcuts (and so on) for the individual modes you're using? My understanding is that the StudioLink-function is exactly just that.. Or did I miss something? ..and if I did, where can I find more information about it
  9. I couldn't disagree more with this.. You're right that as a graphics designer you don't need instant access to Publishing tools. However, it's very common for people who work with graphics to both have pixel and vector graphics in their art. I know that it's possible to jump between Photo and Designer via the file menu, but this takes time since the document have to close and re-open in the other app. Since the release of Publisher I open up all my Design/Photo documents in Publisher since that gives me access StudioLink all pixel and vector tools. (When opening in Publisher I of co
  10. Thanks for the reply and link to the other thread, stokerg. Too bad there are no plans for this. And I don't agree at all (as stated in this other thread) that there's no need for this.. Thank you, Walt :) Yes, I'm aware of the feature that lets you jump between Designer and Photo via the file menu. This however takes much longer time since the document have to close down and open up again in the other program. It's not at all as the StudioLink-feature. I saw someone write in that other thread that he/she saw no need for StudioLink in Designer and/or Photo. This is a quite chocki
  11. Hi! I have licenses for Designer, Photo and Publisher and really love the new StudioLink function you've added to Publisher. I understand that all your focus has been on finishing Publisher lately,. Now with Publisher released however, will you also update Designer and Photo with the StudioLink functionality? The reason I'm asking is that I do a lot of artwork with both pixel and vector graphics, and just using Pixel Persona in Designer isn't enough for what I need. I also use the Export Persona a lot since the way I work is to make all art for one project in the same document an
