  1. @kaffeeundsalz @GrinningShark Thanks! This solved it for me. I have the right icon and double-clicking a .afdesign file now opens that file with Affinity Designer. I'm curious to find out what is needed to also create an Affinity Publisher folder on the iCloud drive.
  2. Well @R C-R, you came with a good suggestion. One that at least explains to me why there are two AP icons (and also why there isn't a Publisher folder). Now what remains is an explanation for why AD files are opened with AP. What is funny is the following: An .afdesign file shows up with Affinity Photo highlighted/selected, despite also indicating that Affinity Designer is the default for opening this type of file. When i try to switch by selecting Affinity Designer, nothing happens. Update: when i copy a .apdesign file to my local drive i can change the default program for opening the file type. When i then double click the file it opens with Affinity Designer, however, when i do the same with the iCloud .apdesign files they still open with Affinity Photo.
  3. Do you have a download link for Affinity Publisher for iPad. . Could this maybe also explain why there's no AD folder, since i only have Affinity Photo for iPad, not Affinity Designer. @befehr: do or don't you have AD for iPad?
  4. I have exactly the same experience (icons, AD docs opening in AP). I also had expectated to see a Publisher folder in iCloud but nope.
  5. Right click on the layer - Select 'Rasterize' before you use the Flood Select Tool.
  6. MacOS in my case.
  7. Maybe that AP has identified it as an Image layer (layers studio panel). In that case you can rasterize first (right click on layer in layers studio panel).
  8. I've tried in Designer, but the text is displayed in black. I haven't found any options or preference setting in AD that would enable this. What is interesting is that the font type selector displays the font in color, but when you actually use it it remains black.
  9. My experience: Click the icon and the visible tool is used. Click the little triangle bottom right and the fly-out opens. Click the icon and hold also opens the fly-out.
  10. And, in case they're looking for an icon, how about something like this?
  11. I've just purchased and installed Affinity Publisher (Mac AppStore). After opening both AD and AP(hoto), i noticed that their toolbars were back to the default setting. Could it be that the two are related? Tools haven't been affected, nor my personalisations in the studio settings.
  12. Aha, I understand. Could using blend options with the gradient map be an alternative (e.g. Overlay)?
  13. Was this Mac sold as new(in which case it's strange that it came with 10.13.6)? If not, in what state did it come - with some software pre-installed? Is there a chance that there's some bloatware on the machine?
  14. Hi @GabrielM, I never found the time to test and make a recording, however, today i decided to play with some settings. The first one i tried seems to have solved the issue. I switched the Display setting from Metal to OpenGL. After this change, and the restart, while making the same type of adjustments, the fan doesn't go into high gear any longer. As i indicated above, this didn't happen in 1.6.7, although i'm not 100% sure if the Display setting was set to Metal or OpenGL. I've also added machine details in a screenshot. Hope this helps to solve this one.
