    G13RL reacted to Patrick Connor in Affinity Suite 1.10.6 Updates on All Platforms   
    We are pleased to announce version 1.10.6 updates for the Affinity Suite on all platforms.
    Affinity Designer, Affinity Photo and Affinity Publisher (on macOS, Windows, and iOS) had all recently been affected by recent operating system releases such as the launch of macOS Ventura, iOS 16 and Windows 10 and 11 updates. We have mitigated some of these in the 1.10.6 patches of all applications on all platforms. The changes fix/avoid the problems introduced by operating system changes thus returning earlier functionality.
    If you are using Windows 10 or 11, macOS Ventura (13.x) or iOS 16 then we recommend installing these updates. Other supported operating systems can install the update without issue, but they have no specific advantages/fixes over 1.10.5 for your OS.
    UPDATING TO THIS VERSION (for existing V1 customers)
    Updates on macOS for Affinity Store Purchases
    The software version can be seen on the splash screen and the About dialog (in application menu, for example Affinity Photo > About...).
    If you’ve purchased from the Affinity Store— each time you start the software it will check for updates and offer to download and install any available update, or in the application main menu there is an option Check for Updates. You can download the latest installer by logging into the affinity store here and find the order in your account and use the "download" button in there. 
    Alternatively the full Affinity Store installers are also available here:
    Affinity Photo on macOS: All Affinity Store builds of Affinity Photo for macOS can be downloaded from this link  Affinity Designer on macOS: All Affinity Store builds of Affinity Designer for macOS can be downloaded from this link Affinity Publisher on macOS: All Affinity Store builds of Affinity Publisher for macOS can be downloaded from this link  =========================================================================
    Updates on macOS through the Mac App Store
    The software version can be seen on the splash screen and the About dialog (in application menu for example, Affinity Photo > About...).
    If you’ve purchased from the Mac App Store— updates are done automatically next time you run your software after it is available in the Mac App Store. If this does not happen for you, open the Mac App Store app and go to the Updates page and then Store > Reload page or press CMD+R. This should hopefully force the update to show. Apple sometimes phase roll outs around the world which can mean it may take up to 72 hours for your update to be available.
    =========================================================================
    Updates on Windows for Affinity Store Purchases
    The software version can be seen on the splash screen and the About dialog (for example in Help > About...).
    If you’ve purchased from the Affinity Store— each time you start the software it will check for updates and offer to download and install any available update, or in the application main menu there is an option Check for Updates. You can download the latest installer by logging into the affinity store here and find the order in your account and use the "download" button in there. 
    Alternatively the full Affinity Store installers are also available here:
    Affinity Photo on Windows: All Affinity Store builds of Affinity Photo for Windows can be downloaded from this link Affinity Designer on Windows: All previous builds of Affinity Designer for Windows can be downloaded from this link Affinity Publisher on Windows: All previous builds of Affinity Publisher for Windows can be downloaded from this link =========================================================================
    Updates on Windows through the Microsoft Store
    The software version can be seen on the splash screen and the About dialog (for example in Help > About...).
    If you’ve purchased from the Microsoft Store— Microsoft Store updates are done automatically by the operating system (each time you start the application). If this does not happen for you, open the Windows Store app and click the three dots in the top right corner of the app and then go to Downloads and Updates. Click Get Updates. This should hopefully force the update to show.
    =========================================================================
    Updates on iPads
    The software version can be seen on the corner of Preferences screen.
    Your Affinity iPad apps should update automatically next time you run them. However, you do need to be logged in with the same Apple ID you used to buy them.
    If the automatic update does not happen for you, go to the iPad App Store app and go to Updates. Once you’re there, tap near the top of the screen where it states 'Updates' and then hold, pull down and then release. This should manually refresh the updates page. However, don’t contact us if the updates are not available for you yet—Apple sometimes phase roll outs around the world and this can take up to 24 hours.
    =========================================================================

    G13RL reacted to NotMyFault in Knife Tool - image disappears   
    a simple solution:
    create a rectangular shape in same size as the image nest the image to the rectangle use knife tools on rectangle Then you get a perfect result.
    In essence: don't use knife tool on image layer. Use on vector shapes, which have the image nested as child layer.

    G13RL reacted to Pšenda in Fichier corrompu ?   
    Textu zprávy přesně nerozumím, ale podle slova "version" to vypadá, že jste soubor z verze 1 otevřel ve verzi 2, uložil, a teď se jí opět pokoušíte otevřít ve verzi 1.
    A vzhledem k tomu, že formát souboru verze 2 není zpětně kompatibilní (celkem logicky, protože verze 2 přináší nové funkčnosti, které ve verzi 1 nebyly implementovány), tak se soubor už nedá otevřít.

    G13RL got a reaction from Paul Mudditt in Does universal license cover new products?   
    Doesn't the current offer already seem generous enough? In my opinion, if a new product is added to the suite, it would make sense to buy it.
    While you're at it, why not ask Serif to pay you to use their products?

    G13RL reacted to Zero Zero in Extremely disappointed that this installs as an "App" and not regular software program   
    I have just requested a refund.
    There is already enough tyranny imposed on people in the world, I don't respect software companies that enforce this approach on their customers, it's not acceptable. At this point I no longer care if Serif issue .exe files and offer a formal apology. The damage is done already.
    In addition I find the changes introduced into V2 underwhelming and I am quite happy to continue using V1 which already fulfils my needs very nicely.
    I hope Serif learns some humility from this serious error of judgement.

    G13RL reacted to Eddy-2 in (W11) The list of favourite fonts is empty in all three applications   
    This what I did earlier. First, find the location of the Fonts.xml file for version 1. Here's where mine was:
    V1 = C:\Users\ME\AppData\Roaming\Affinity\Designer\1.0\Settings\Fonts.xml
    Next, copy the font names from the file Fonts.xml, as highlighted in the picture below.
    Then find the location of the version 2 Fonts.xml file. Here's where mine was:
    V2 = C:\Users\ME\.affinity\Designer\2.0\Settings\Fonts.xml
    Finally, paste the copied font names into the similar location in the version two Fonts.xml file.

    G13RL got a reaction from anemos in How do I place 3 stars on each side inside a donut shape aligned to the text   
    Another way to do it:
    Place a star at the top, move its "Transform Origin" to the centre of the circle, "Ctrl/Cmd + J", type 360/24 (so that the central stars are aligned with the centre of the circle) in the "Rotation" window of the "Transform" tab. Then delete the unnecessary stars.

    Thanks for providing that for me! That's certainly strange as I too cannot see any of the expected updates here.
    Can you please open Windows Settings > Updates & Security > View Update History and provide a screenshot of the installed updates here for me? 
    ___________________________________________
    I can confirm this is one of the known updates, listed in the FAQ - uninstalling this update should stop the crashing behaviour
    ___________________________________________
    Usually the .NET updates are installed, overwriting the previous update, so you should be able to simply remove the latest .NET KB update (as listed in the FAQ) and this should stop the app from crashing - please do let us know how you get on here!

    G13RL reacted to Komatös in Any Information about the Chrashes on Windows 10/11 when searching Fonts?   
    Hi @hashtag amazing and @G13RL
    As long as Microsoft does not provide a fix for the framework problem, the following solution is available if you still want to install the cumulative .NET updates.
    Solution:
    Open the directory in which the Affinity programmes are installed. As a rule, C:\Programme\Affinity\(Desinger ...Photo ...Publisher)
    Search and open the .exe.config file (for example Designer.exe.config) with a text editor.
    Search for "<add key="IsVirtualizingStackPanel_45Compatible" value="true"/>"
    Replace the value true with the value false.
    Save the file (administrative rights are required to overwrite!).
    Now the programmes shoud work as expected.

    G13RL reacted to Dan C in Trying to resize a PNG graphic image with transparency in Affinity Designer   
    Hi @DanM.,
    I'd recommend checking out the Export Persona in Affinity Designer - as this allows you to export the image to a transparent supported format (ie PNG or TIFF) in multiple different sizes at once.
    2022-10-14 10-41-39.mp4

    In the above recording, after opening the image in Designer I navigate to the Export Persona and select the Slices Studio.
    Here I can set the export to PNG, then add as many 'variants' of the export as required, setting the scale (ie 1x, 2x) or height/width (ie 200w or 600h) for each.
    Then, you can select 'Export Slices' and choose a folder to export into - this will then resize and export the image in each size you have setup here.
    I hope this helps

    G13RL got a reaction from Alexandre Valensi in Camembert with Affinity   
    Je suppose que vous voulez parler de règle de trois.
    Comme 100% est égal 360°, 90% est égal à (360/100)*90=324°
    ___________________________________________________________________
    I assume you mean rule of three.
    As 100% equals 360°, 90% equals (360/100)*90=324°.
