  1. Black Point compensation does not work! The CMYK 0 0 0 100 should be absolute black. However, this is not the case. One sees rather a dark gray.
  2. I assume that Affinity 2.0 will be released in September or October. From a marketing point of view, it is difficult to imagine that no new version with new functions will be released in 2022. Unless the customers who have already bought the software and are waiting for improvements and new features are not that important to Serif.
  3. It would be very practical to be able to insert the preset sizes such as A5, A4, A3, A2, etc. while working. You can actually insert an A2 artboard manually, but you have to know the height and width first. This is very cumbersome and time-consuming.
  4. If I want to insert an A2 size artboard while working, is there no such option? I don't see a preset size.
  5. Why is it possible to insert ready-made sizes for IPAD, IPhone as Artboard, but not DIN A4, DIN A3, DIN A2, etc. ? That's not exactly convenient. One need prefabricated DIN large.
  6. @debraspicherIf you have suggestions on how to improve export quality of PNG, that would be really helpful. I've tried several settings, unfortunately I don't see any way to achieve export quality with smooth outlines like Illustrator. Incidentally, the font outlines in Affinity Designer are not rendered as smoothly as in Illustrator.
  7. Thank you for the tip. I will try it out and deactivate the ICC profile during export.
  8. Affinity Designer's strengths lie in the pen. You can really draw what you want very comfortably in Affinity Designer. The weaknesses lie in the export quality of PNG, which does not meet professional requirements. This is a big problem when fine lines and round shapes, typography are exported pixelated and not smooth enough. Hopefully the export quality and the anti-aliasing function will be improved in Affinity 2.0. The subscription model is out of the question for me!
  9. Significant improvements and new practical functions must be released with version 2.0 for it to be worth buying the new version. It is important that the export quality of PNG and JPG is improved! However, everyone should decide for themselves whether to buy new software version or not.
  10. @Patrick Connor I bought Affinity Designer, Affinity Publisher and Affinity Photo from Microsoft Store. I expect all future updates to have been delivered to me from Microsoft Store!
  11. I have found that if one disables OpenGL, the performance of Affninty Photo is better.
  12. The system load caused by Affinity Photo RAW is simply extremely high!
  13. I cannot make the pictures available to you. Try opening any pictures at the same time. No matter which ones, Photo crashes. I have Affinity Photo from Windows Store, use Windows 11. There are free apps that offer much better RAW development. And DxO, for example, is miles better and more powerful than Affinity Photo.
  14. I tried to open 3 RAW files in Affinity Photo at the same time to develop them. Affinity Photo crashed immediately!
  15. How can I set text frames to white in Affinity Designer? In my case the text frame is suddenly in pink color.
  16. Genau, bei mir gibt es keinen Eintrag Textrahmen. Affinity Designer aus Microsoft Store.
  17. Hello, has the panel "Text frame" disappeared? There is no entry in View Studio. https://affinity.help/publisher/de.lproj/index.html?page=pages/Panels/textFramePanel.html?title=Das "Text frame" panel How can I change background color for text? Thanks.
  18. Unfortunately, even free Inkscape can export better PNG, JPG than Affinity Designer. I would like to refer to this discussion:
  19. Here is an example of how free Inkscape can export the PNG. The quality of the export is much better than with Affinity Designer. In this respect, Affinity should really improve this.
  20. I tried the new version of Inkscape, it offers a very good vectorisation of PNG. Inkscape is a very good and free software.
  21. I don't currently plan to use Illustrator. There are an extensive number of vector brushes for Illustrator on the internet. These are vector graphics. It's really bad that in Affinity Designer the vector brushes don't make real vectors that you can export as a vector file. A very big disadvantage.
