  1. A picture is worth a thousand words, I guess: Anyone can spot the difference?
  2. No, I did not. The ones you presented here are the PSD, SVG and IMDL icons which I was not referring to. I clearly said: "afdesign, afpub and afphoto icons", so I was talking about the other three icons he designed. It is not about recognizing icons or not. It is about easily spotting the right ones. When icons are pretty similar to each other (which the new Affinity document icons are), then UX suffers.
  3. Unfortunately I have to disagree. While I was also not a fun of the old document icons (using the app's own icon is surely a bad choice) , the new ones are even worse than those used to be. I don't know about others, but most of the time I use either list or column views, and it is impossible to see the completely unnecessary labels of the extensions written on the icons themselves. I do not think we are often looking at 256x256+ pixel versions of the icons, so big dimensions do not count in usability. The new document icons are just generic white sheet icons with some hard to tell a
  4. Hello @Sean P I am not allowed share the file I'm afraid. BTW, in the meantime v 1.7.1 let me down too, unfortunately. Even though the copy/paste operation worked there, when I changed text styles in the text frame in question, somehow non-detached symbols place on different artboards went out of sync. When trying to fix it, all artboards disappeared so I had to revert to the last saved document. I decided not to use pasted-in vectors within text frames, instead I press the spacebar a few times to make room for the vector icon and group the icon with the text frame. This is how a beg
  5. Hello, I have documents created with Designer 1.7.1. I pasted a vector logo into a text frame (which is in a symbol, if it matters or not I do not know). When copy/pasting the text frame in Designer 1.7.1 all is good. However, updating to 1.7.3 results in a crash when performing the copy operation of the text frame. To me, the last stable versions of Designer and Publisher are 1.7.1 as I also ran into a serious bug when using Publisher 1.7.2, see: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/96343-publisher-172-embedded-document-related-bugs/ I am pretty busy these days, so
  6. Yes it did. I could click on the "Embed button" in order to embed it again: Thank you! It's my mistake to update a few days after a new version of app has been released. Normally I wait for weeks to avoid being sort of a beta tester. I do not know what happened to me today Anyway, keep up the good work! Publisher is the most productive app you sell (as it is in pair with InDesign, at least for me), following Designer which I also like A LOT but its feature-set is not yet there for me to replace Illustrator just yet, and the last one is Photo, which I cannot use for any
  7. Hello, I have updated to Publisher 1.7.2 from v1.7.1.408, but after experiencing the following bugs I quickly downgraded to I have a document created in with an embedded Publisher document which used to be a linked one but I used the Resource Managed to embed it in order to introduce changes to it. After updating to 1.7.2, this embedded Publisher document reverted back to be linked, so Publisher reloaded the original and all the applied changes were lost. Out of curiosity, I embedded the document once more and introduced some changes to it. Aft
  8. +1 for the improvements suggested above. Thanks in advance
