  1. Since the last version (, my DESIGNER and PUBLISHER presets (keyboard shortcuts, new document templates, export profiles) disappear from time to time ... Big waste of time ! (see screenshot) ... On the other hand PUBLISHER sometimes "disappears" when I load files of 300 MB ...
  2. Hi ASAFK, Same thing here since v.183641... And my congiguration is a fresh one (Mars 2020 !!!) PC Desktop - Windows 10 - AMD Ryzen 5 - Ram 16 - ATI AMD Radeon Pro WX 3100... I hope they will hear us ...
  3. Hello... AFFINITY should make us an AfFPhoto / AFDesigner / AFpublisher file viewer, like ... Adobe Bridge utility. And when we want to open a document we can view it in the window. And that this viewer "sees" (good) most of the files that the Explorer "sees" (bad). THANK YOU !
  4. Yes i am with you! I work for 3-4 months on Designer and the lack of contrast is painful. It's the same on Publisher. In the layers panel, where we move a lot of things, the colors have very little brightness, it's a hassle. And in the colors proposed to locate the layers, 4 out of 7 are too dark to see if the layer is ... visible! Active panels are also indistinguishable from inactive panels. I hope that the next version will be more advanced at this level ...
  5. Thankx PÅ¡enda, yes I know this manipulation, but which responds partially ... I will quote Illustrator, like many people here, but with its direct selection tool, everything is simple. I do not expect Designer to be a copy of illustrator, and I adopted it as it is, but for certain manipulations resolved for years in most software, Affinity seems curiously dissident ... it's his personality!
  6. When you want to designate an element of a diagram using a number (letter) and a line ... you must swap the node tool (A) with the move tool (V) to adjust the position of the number and the line. Which becomes tense when you have tons! There is no optional key on these 2 tools, which would allow you to temporarily switch from tool (V) to (A), and, please, without having to activate the selection before you can move the node. .
  7. Thank you Walt for that ray of hope. We suspect that Publisher is going to evolve, no doubt we are in too much hurry, we always want more!
  8. Aaah ? Yessss ... it is not very clear ... this software does not seem really finished to me To follow...
  9. I have a Publisher doc in which I have (so far) imported 50 A4 sheets, fairly "simple" drawings (particularly loaded ...) from Designer. The total document weight is 730 MB, whether the files are linked or integrated. Of course the files are linked, the loading time is as long as in the "integrated" version. And what motivates this plea is that when I open my document, I must systematically update the modified files in the meantime! (the update in "live" works well). According to the doc there should be a difference in weight, and the loading time will be much faster. Did I miss something ?
  10. Yeah ! I admit that I searched a lot (in the menus ...) but never found. On the other hand I arrive in Designer (and Publisher) for 1 or 2 months, and I have to do everything at once: the job, and the conversion to these 2 (excellent) software, of which however certain functions are very confusing. And there I admit that I lacked perpicuity ! Thank you very much Loukash, things will be better now, thanks and merry Christmas ! Philippe
  11. Dear Affinity Team, The drawing nodes around a letter are very annoying when you want to move it precisely. Likewise, the measurement indications on both sides obstruct the view ! Couldn't we have the possibility to mask (temporarily) these visual pollution ? Thank you all
  12. Hello Walt 1) By selection of the ZONE (terms in Affinity doc...) I mean the box, the block, the frame..... 2) In Publisher I therefore did not draw an frame, since it was dropped by copy and paste. 3) I then reduced this frame from below so as to make the red arrows and the eye visible. 4) I clicked on the arrow and I drew the second frame ... and that's it. 5) I have never used the knot at the bottom right. Thanks
  13. I did not find the "default settings" you are talking about ... I have a "workaround" solution: on AF Designer you must first select the TEXT itself and not the ZONE, and then everything is fine in Publisher. But I thought that between these two applications the correspondence was total ... Thanks Catshill... happy Christmas !!
  14. Hi all and others ! When I bring a text in PUBLISHER by the clipboard, coming from DESIGNER, everything is fine. But as soon as I want to chain it with a new text block, the characters appear very small (example visible below ...) Is there a solution? Thanks !
  15. Hello Stephen, If the layers are not locked, the selection tools act ... normally :) However, see in the preferences: - User interface: check "Show selection in the layer pane"; - Tools: tick "Select the object if it intersects the selection frame" (otherwise you have to surround everything the object you want, and it is not always easy). Good discovery !
