  1. Of course, you are right, Walt. Regarding the justification question, I had the following in mind. If we create a truly flexible or adaptive layout, it might be the case that the width of our text frames or text columns changes, depending on the size and the aspect ratio of the layout canvas. But then, in order to keep justified text looking fine, it would probably be necessary to adapt the justification settings, though I am not entirely sure if that could be done dynamically to a satisfying degree.
  2. Nice idea, Petar, particularly for adaptive layouts, once these can be exported. But then we must also have a way to adjust the other type-related parameters (leading, justification, …) using relative values.
  3. Infelizmente, este é um problema conhecido que deve ser corrigido em uma das próximas versões. Os programadores já estão a trabalhar numa solução. (Esta tradução foi criada automaticamente.

  4. Wow, that’s pretty strange. It seems to work fine here. But I have to add, I am on a Mac. Maybe there’s a Windows bug that prevents the histogram from showing up. I am sorry that I am of little help in that case. Alex
  5. As Gabriel indicated: depending on the size of your image and the specs of your computer, it may take some time for Affinity Photo to calculate the histogram. I’ve seen that too.
  6. Indeed it looks white. But if it was the monitor, I guess the forum background should look blueish as well, in other words, you shouldn’t see a difference between the image thumbnail on this webpage and the background of the <article> tag that holds your comment. For the image doesn’t have a color profile embedded and, by the RGB values, it is completely white.
  7. Alternatively, using Preview on the Mac, you can also open all of your images, select all image thumbnails in the sidebar, and use File > Print > Save to PDF. This way you can make the desired settings in one go.
  8. Oh, my idea was rather simple. The original poster had asked how to assess the files exported from Affinity Designer, more precisely, the social icon or logo files (s)he had created. So I suggested to open these files in Designer, zoom in a little, and have a look. That was all.
  9. Yes, this is all very true. For a daily workflow, it wouldn’t make much sense … LOL … but given the questions that were asked in this thread, honestly, I believe it would suffice to reload the exported files into the apps for assessment before trying anything else. And that’s what my comment was about …
  10. And what would be the argument against using Affinity Photo or Designer as a document viewer?
  11. (Seems the free version of ACDSee is only available for Windows computers. Could that be right?)
  12. Regarding the second question, I beg to differ. You certainly don’t have to purchase an application like ACDSee to assess the quality of your exported files. Just load the file back into Affinity Designer of Photo. Or use any other free file viewer that can open your export format. When you send your files out into the wild, they will have to work in different environments anyhow.
  13. This is what I was about to suggest as well, but @firstdefence was a tiny bit faster … LOL … maybe also a little color correction, and you’re done …
  14. What you suggest can basically be achieved by installing a Google Translate browser extension. Of course, you will have to assess the related privacy issues yourself. Just a footnote.
  15. Unless you can show (highlight in a screenshot, etc.) what you mean by blurry, it will be very difficult to help you.
