  1. we absolutely need first class support for avif, webp, and heic formats. for those discussing browser coverage i suggest you consider updating your html alongside your images. also safari has supported webp since big sur launched. <picture> <source type="image/avif" srcset="..." /> <source type="image/webp" srcset="..." /> <img src="..." srcset="..." alt="..." width="..." height="..." loading="lazy" /> </picture>
  2. Gimp is one of the few software that can store multiple icons sizes as a set properly in one ico allowing you to specify different color and compression standards and masking and compatibility levels. It gets the right binary order for compatibility fallback. There is no other software that I'm aware of with this level of control and support, and it makes rolling multi-size ico much smaller and more backwards compatible. whomever implemented that part of their software really knew what they were doing. Affinity doesn't have to get that technical or fancy, even basic ico support would be greatly appreciated. same with avif and heic and webp. it would greatly improve workflow to not be forced to reach to other software for conversions in and out. I want Affinity to LEAD the modern workflow pack like it did when it was released. ❤️ because they are my favorite tools.
  3. many of these "effects" have vector only equivalent ways of achieving them that are supported natively. blur, stroke, etc. so yes they could be programed differently and remain true vector output. more importantly is somehow identifying when and where a workflow crosses into this unsafe territory. currently there are ZERO indicators or warnings, no options to convert or remove on export etc, which really breaks the workflow and assumes secret insider knowledge that might not be accessible to new users.
  4. I've recently created several vector only designs in Affinity Designer. When I go to export them as SVG instead of being vector svg files they are svgs that contain raster pngs embedded in them and hence don't scale properly. This is not what I want. 😢 Is there any way to tell affinity designer to export the vector design as only a vector svg not png embedded in svg? Are there features of the software that force the design to export embedded pngs, and if so is there a refence to which ones so they can be avoided and alternate methods employed? I've noticed specifically that outer shadow fx seems to trigger this, i'd really like to know which other features trigger this behavior so that i can make svg vector safe resizable designs. Anyone know a reference to this aspect of Affinity Designer? Many Thanks. ❤️
  5. Apologies, I started my own thread in which the version of everything relevant are all mentioned/referenced: I figured out the bug was in Affinities handling of color management profiles. The weekly windows 10 pro insider edition update must have pushed a new version of the surface enhanced color profile i'd been using for the surface display. Switching the surface display to use this profile sRGB IEC1966-2.1 (default) fixed the issue even though i'd been using the Enhanced profile on the surface display only this entire time, the other two displays were already sRGB IEC1966-2.1 I'm guessing that a bug in the colorspace math is what is causing the early crash, android and ios have both had similar bugs in the recent past. they are easy to get if there is any rounding in the colorspace math code, you can easily get out of bounds values unless all calculations have limit checks. thanks for the reply, hope the color management information helps others facing this issue.
  6. I was able to get them to launch again by deleting all windows color calibration profiles and setting all three displays to sRGB IEC1966-2.1 (default), as well as the system default profile to sRGB IEC1966-2.1 and restarting. The surface screen was previously set to the default surface Enhanced profile. It would appear this bug is in working with windows color profiles. Having them all just stop working was quite the scare, hopefully this bug gets fixed soon, I was fortunate enough to stumble on the solution myself by trying everything I could find in any of the forums. Hopefully this information helps the dev team find and fix the bug and anyone else experiencing this issue get going again. Thanks! ❤️
  7. Any luck with this issue? This just started happening to all three Affinity products on my machine and i had been using them all up until today. 😞
  8. PLEASE HELP: All Affinity Products Stopped Opening on Windows 10 I have a Surface 7 Pro with 2 external monitors and have been using Affinity products on it for some time. I've purchased all three Affinity products and been quite happy with them, up until now... Went to open them today and none of them will open, all have a very brief loading cursor then nothing at all. 😞 Nothing in: %APPDATA%\Affinity\Designer\1.0\Log.txt 0KB %APPDATA%\Affinity\Photo\1.0\Log.txt 0KB %APPDATA%\Affinity\Publisher\1.0\Log.txt 0KB Windows 10 20215.1000 Intel Iris Plus Graphics Affinity Designer 1.8.5 but also affects Affinity Photo 1.8.5 and Affinity Publisher 1.8.5. All were working just fine up until today. I've restarted several times. Tried without the external monitors attached. Etc. Nothing seems to help at all. I have none of the known third party apps that cause issues. I replaced the Intel Iris Plus graphic drivers with the latest version from Intel and that did not help either. PLEASE HELP I have work I desperately need to do and I can't even get any of the apps to launch anymore. 😢😭 I need to get this working again ASAP. 🙏 If a developer needs to access my machine remotely to debug that can be arranged.
  9. ico is a crucial format to support for proper iconing of web apps that require multiple icon sizes and still considered best practice. ico can hold multiple resolutions, and almost all devices and apps are smart enough to pull the resolution they need automatically from the single ico asset and ico are supported on all major os. being able to generate these from an svg like gimp can would be fantastic.
