  1. The other personas are simply not active at the moment, but they will not have the full functionality of the other applications and their additional persona, no.
  2. The current Affinity Publisher Windows public beta has all UI locales available now, (so is no longer restricted to UK English). In the Edit menu > Preferences > General you can choose any of the 10 languages, restart the application and experience Affinity Publisher in that locale. We do not expect to have got all the localisation correct yet and possibly we are not using the standard terms, so if you see any words or phrases that are out of the ordinary, or are clipped/cropped short in the Windows build PLEASE report them in this thread, stating the language and version you are running and what OS you are seeing the problem on. Use this thread (Do not make new threads) unless you are seeing a bug that does not happen in English, so Bugs in new threads, localisation issues in this thread

    In the long term we will have delta patching for Windows updates, as we have recently implemented in the Mac beta releases and will be used for release builds going forward. The library we have used on Mac doesn't make small (delta) patches on Windows so we are looking to implement this ourselves.

    Work with RAM. 1.7.0.243

    UI is being used in a more technical sense than you are implying. The screen drawing code does not fall under the definition of user interface. We mean the toolbars and studios, nothing else, particularly not the rendering of the images to the screen or particularly the processing of the filters where most of the memory is used. The user interface cares not which document is open (or even if one has been, let alone 10 big images).
  5. Until Affinity Publisher supports anchored / attached objects in flowing documents docx import is not going to be satisfactory to anyone with more than text in their files. There's an orderly way to develop Affinity Publisher and we are building from the ground up. All in good time.

    As the new beta does not have this image I am closing this thread as fixed.

    Affinity Photo Workbook

    Hi All, As announced in a recent blog post we have launched the Affinity Photo Workbook to accompany the desktop versions of Affinity Photo Affinity Photo Workbook Launch Announcement November 23, 2017 We are proud to announce the launch of the official Affinity Photo Workbook, our first ever guide to Affinity Photo on macOS and Windows. Painstakingly put together over many months, the long-awaited Workbook teaches you everything there is to know about Affinity Photo and mastering its powerful tools and capabilities. . This is a big book - 488 pages, in hardback - and it includes fantastic projects created by some top photographers, as well as a comprehensive reference to all our tools and panels, and a set of core skills tutorials. For those who are interested, there is a further blog post describing the creation process Behind the Scenes: Creating the Affinity Photo Workbook November 27, 2017 As we released our glossy full-colour Affinity Photo Workbook last week, we thought you might like to take a look into how it was created… You can find more information about it here. Usual price is $49.99 / £37.99 (+ shipping and handling). It's available in English and German. Hope you like it!

    Affinity Photo Workbook

    No, we have not done this and we do not list all the links anywhere, to stop the downloads being abused. Some are licensed and we try to encourage them to be downloaded only by those who have bought the book and have it in front of them, sorry.
  9. @k_au Thanks We've got those and I've deleted the attachment from the forum.
  10. Try Tags for now like DAM or specific forum based search
  11. and We might well have a public beta for any new product (like Publisher), but we do not normally have public input before that. If you want to say something make a fantastic post like this one
  12. A new category in the forums for any new product will appear when there is a new Affinity product to beta test, and not before. Thank you.
  13. @mobydriver Welcome to the Serif Affinity forums There is a long thread about this with some staff replies including this one saying The best available work around is PDF.
  14. @ChrisBorry It seems obvious to me.... Export to another format loses a lot of info. "simply use .... Indesign" is the problem... If you rent your own files (through the subscription model) then those files are useless if you stop paying. The subscription model is expensive for many people (perhaps you are rich enough to not worry). Others would like to simply stop paying for InDesign without thinking first about exporting all their files to another unsatisfactory intermediate format in case they will need them. (P.S. currently we do not import word files either)
  15. I have moved this discussion that is not build 238 specific to it's own thread no.
  16. Well.... oh no that would be a spoiler. There are some important ones still to come some soon. They will need to pass internal testing. Whether they make it into the release of Affinity Publisher 1.7, I expect they will be in the release before too long. You know that those who have not followed this beta process (the majority of the world) will look at the 1.7.0 release and pick on one 'missing' feature they are used to in a 20+ year old product and dismiss the whole program without an understanding of where we are going with this suite, or that 1.x free updates can include new features as well as fixes. We may depend upon social media followers and forum regulars who undestand how far we have come, how quickly and our ambitions, to suggest to doubters that a little patience will be rewarding.
  17. @N. Shaw Welcome to the Serif Affintiy forums We are looking to try and roll the iPad help out as an online resource, hopefully for the coming 1.7 iPad updates
  18. @Yerven Welcome to the Serif Affinity forums. I am pleased that the work around worked for you, but the latest build #238 found here does not require the work around to install, so you may want to use that now anyway.

    @Dextication You didn't have an affinity forum account to delete before you created this account, but you can certainly request any account has the personal data removed by emailing dataprotection@serif.com explaining what you would like removing.
  22. Well it's the same code and the same longstanding bug, but thanks. It will be fixed in all apps or none
  23. @kedgemor Welcome to the Serif Affinity forums I have approved your post, but this forum is not the right place for this sort of thing. This forum is solely for the Affinity range of software and we have no general area for your sort of query. No more posts on this topic will be approved. Please come back if you have questions about our software.
