    Affinity Photo Customer Beta (

    Finding this build to be very unstable, lots of crashes and weird behaviour.

    Image Colour Issue

    Hey Thanks, that seems to have been the solution. Cheers!
  7. Hey everyone, Apologies if this has been addressed elsewhere but I wasn't able to find a solution. I'm opening a number of images in Photo and Designer and finding the colours to be less saturated than the same images in OS X Preview and Photoshop. I've checked, obviously, and the colour format is RGB, not CMYK. I've attached the original and a comparison showing Preview, Photoshop, and Photo. You'll see the first two images look nice and saturated, however the last one, in Photo, looks washed out. Thanks!
  8. The keyboard shortcuts used to rearrange layer order aren't available in the Mac version of Publisher.
  9. Hmm, which keyboard shortcuts are you using? I just checked again and they aren't working for me. Shortcuts aren't displayed in the right-click context menu either.
  10. Being able to adjust the order or items using keyboard shortcuts like in Designer and Photos is missed.
  11. Hi Affinity, I mostly use the Multiple option in the leading adjustment panel because it's dynamic. For my tastes, a value of 1.25 is often ideal for paragraphs and headings, as 1.5 is typically too loose and 1.0 too tight. 1.25 is not an option in the dropdown menu, so I'm forced to enter this manually, which is a nuisance. Would you consider the following suggestions: Adding presets to the Multiple options at .25 interval; instead of what's currently there: 0.5, 1, 1.5, 2, 2.5, etc... it'd be: 0.25, 0.5, 0.75, 1, 1.25, 1.5, 1.75, 2, etc... Adding the option for the to user edit the defaults or enter their own custom leading presets. Make the arrow key value adjustment shortcut correspond better to the Multiple option, so instead of increasing or decreasing by full integers, it would move up and down at .25 increments. Thanks so much and keep up the fantastic work!

    Looking For Assets For Web Design

    Ah, for sure. There doesn't appear to be a lot out there yet, though as more people become aware of Affinity apps I'm sure there'll be more and more.

    Can't paste text out to some other apps

    Hi Chris, thanks for responding. I can't seem to paste text into web browsers on my system: Safari, Chrome, or Firefox, nor an HTML text editor: Espresso, Atom, or Brackets. My workaround is to paste into Notes or an email app and then from there I can copy and paste into a web browser .
  15. Hey Affinity, I've had this problem for a long time, but for some reason I can seem to select, copy, and paste text from within Affinity to some other apps, but not others. Is there a solution to this? Thanks!
