  1. Thank you. No, very strange but next time go to my account via my browser.
  2. Hi all, I've just purchased the Distress Press distressing addon for Affinity Photo and for the life of my cannot locate the "Distressing Template" that seems to be a necessary part of the effects process and as used in the True Grit tutorial video. The brushes and macros are all present. Am I missing something obvious here? Could someone who has Distress Press point me direction in this template. Thanks, Anthony

  4. I guess what I'm asking is if you open a new document and then set the Text Style to US spelling, then from then on does all typography (fonts, spacings, weights etc) have US spellings applied, unless you specifically apply another Text Style. Some of the documents I'm working on are imputed into Publisher so if for instance the titles are in Times and the body in another font, if you set the the Text Style of the title to US that works fine for the title but if you then apply that style to the body which is a different font, it them changes the font to Time unless you set a different Text Style for the body. So I'm seeing that for every time I select a different text style I have to set that to US spellings. That seems to me to be the way it works. Bit convoluted I'm sorry, anyway I seem to be heading in the right heading direction now. Thanks.
  5. Thanks @walt.farrell , this has set me in the right direction. The problem I'm having now is that the style editor is imposing unwanted text styles. I just need to get to grips with text style set up, ideally would like a style that only effects spelling. I'm assuming that if I set the spelling for a new doc to US in the default Text Style then that will persist regardless of typography changes. Thanks again
  6. I installed the US language pack on Window and switch to US English as the default system language but it is still flagging color as wrong and colour as correct. I've altered numerous Windows setting but cant seem to find a solution to this problem. This is something I'm going to have to do on a fairly regular basis so if anyone has a solution or work around I'd be very grateful.
  7. Revisiting this old topic as I am still have issues switching from UK to US spelling. Having changed the language settings from UK to US for a US document I am still getting UK spell checking. Example color is flagged as incorrect colour is not flagged. I am UK based so this is the default setting for Windows. I don't know if this is over-riding things but all of Publishers preferences are set to US spelling for this particular doc but it is still using UK English. So does anybody know how I can get Publisher to spell check in US English? Thanks, Anthony
  8. Its OK I've solved the problem! I was changing the spelling setting but the main one . All working fine now.
  9. I'm have a little problem with spelling settings. I am currently creating documents in Publisher that will be output in both UK (native) and US formats. The problem I have is that when I open the US version of the file and try to change the spellchecker to US in the preferences in order to check the US spellings, it reverts back to UK spellings dictionaries as soon as I close the preferences panel. I've tried setting the preferences to US and restating Publisher but when it opens again I'm back to UK settings. I'm sure I'm missing something simple here! So is there a different or correct way to switch spelling settings from UK to US? Yes, I do have the US dictionaries installed. Thanks, Anthony
  10. @Zman88 would just add that is does seen to be a driver issue, so make sure your graphics drivers are all up to date first.
  11. Hi @Zman88 I don't know if you can use earlier versions for a trial but the method described in the post below kind of worked for me. In my case just adding the lines described still wouldn't allow me to open Photo (in this case). However adding the equivalent line from Designer performance file did allow me to open Photo 1.9 and change the Performance Preferences from within the programme. This method did produce a warning message telling me that preferences could not be fully loaded but it did open and once you change the preferences I assume a new clean file is written. Same process was applied to Designer and Publisher and all now run without issue. Would just say this is not a difficult thing to do but a little computer knowledge will be helpful. You do so at your own risk! The setting I changed are Performance, disable openCL and in my case for other reasons set the renderer WARP. Hope this helps and good luck.
  12. Yes, I've done that as Lenovo's drivers haven't been updated since 2018! Thanks anyway
  13. No its a complete system crash no message or trace. I had a crash issue in Designer 1.7 & 1.8 when using isometric grids. After extensive investigation with Affinity no problem could be found. Disabling hardware acceleration was the only solution. Logs failed to record any useful information and CPU usage was fine. I have had to disable hardware acceleration in all my browsers also as it was causing a crash issue on certain sites. Guessing its something on my system, even reset Windows yesterday to see that would help but it made no difference.
  14. I have to say before I continue that I have had to disable hardware acceleration and run WARP rendering in all the Affinity products. Some issue on my system probably. So having made sure I have the latest drivers, having rolled back to several older driver versions also, I still cannot use 1.9. Photo simple crashes trying to open, as mentioned in my previous post. Designer and publisher open but crash as soon as I touch them, so for the time being I'm going back 1.8. As I said I do believe that the issue is partly with my machine but am still open to suggestions regarding a fix. Thanks to all who replied to my previous post. Anthony
