  1. Pantone were never giving Adobe anything for free. Adobe would have licensed the library from them. Either Adobe don’t want to pay anymore, or Pantone demanded a bigger licence fee, we’ll probably never know for sure. Now it’s been put on the users to pay Pantone a monthly fee. Not sure how that would work for Affinity, because it would be on Pantone to develop and sell (rent) a compatible palette.
  2. Since the latest update I've been unable to create custom presets for outputting PDFs. I usually change a few things (colour space, text as curves, etc) and create a preset, but "create preset" is greyed out.
  3. Thanks MEB, yeah I'm aware of that option... don't always remember to hit it when I'm working to a deadline, and really bites me in the ass a few weeks later. I'd just like to be able to set a default, same as Adobe Illustrator.
  4. The new update (1.9) is great, but the addition of a resource manager has changed the default behaviour of Designer. Prior to this when I chose a Print Ready preset the resources were always embedded, now it defaults to linked. I don't need to reduce my file sizes, and I don't want to keep track of resources in a folder somewhere. I'd actively avoided starting work in Publisher because of this behaviour, I'd open a file weeks later and everything is missing from it, and now Designer does it too. So a simple request, please add a checkbox somewhere in preferences to always embed resources.
  5. I didn't spot this reply until now, sorry. Still having the same problem, and it's with a couple of documents. Attached screen recording should show you the fairly erratic selection behaviour. Screen_Recording_2020-03-02_at_13_17_59.mov
  6. Well balls... that'll teach me for giving Apple a 30% cut.
  7. I get that it's going to take a little time to fix whatever has gone wrong, that's totally understandable. So my next question, is there any way to roll back the Mac App Store version to the previous (1.7) build? Simple jobs that were taking 10 minutes are now taking 45 mins to an hours of playing around until I get somewhat satisfactory results, it's very hard to work this way.
  8. I disagree, it's far worse than before in every scenario for me. I tried expanding a simple stroke around the Honda logo for a customer and it turned into abstract art. Expanding strokes around any text seems to fail for me, and combining the results with the original shape is an absolute disaster.
  9. Since this mornings App Store patch for yesterday's issues I can no longer drag select objects on an artboard with any predictability. Sometimes it works, sometimes it misses an entire group or object, but most often it just says (0 objects) when dragging a selection around things.
  10. Thanks Sean, will that work with a Mac App Store version of the app?
  11. Fonts in Designer will only display for me as mm in the tool bar and character panel. I have show text as points selected, I've restarted, tried many documents, but it still only shows in mm. Opening the same documents in Publisher shows points as intended.
  12. This has happened me today too. New document created in Designer, images dragged from the desktop, trashed the images and Affinity pops up a resource missing dialog. My document was created as Press Ready, as Walt mentioned.
  13. I used to subscribe to Monotype, but let my subscription lapse — in the mean time they seem to have discontinued it and replaced it with an enterprise/large studio service called Mosaic, which frankly I can't afford. If Adobe have removed the standalone Typekit sub, there's a good chance they'll reinstitute it later in the year when iOS 13 arrives. Apple are adding fonts to the App Store, and Adobe, MyFonts, Monotype etc are all on board... so hopefully when they all inevitably go the subscription route, they'll create a way to use that sub on desktop too. In the mean time you can use Skyfonts to sync open fonts from Google, along with any fonts you've purchased from the likes of MyFonts. Not ideal, but it's all there is right now (that I can find).
