  1. Please, let us be greatful for the work Serif Dev team are doing. Yes, all of our desired features may not be in at the moment but with time, I am sure they will get there. Photoshop has 20+ years of lead and it's still buggy and laggy.

    Mac beta 1.8 needed...

    Where art thou, @Andy Somerfield ? Thou should'st not leave us hanging. re: Photo 1.8. It wouldest be a pleasant christmas present
  3. Hmmm!! @MattP. Did you just leak some info in the video? I can see "Designer MacOS Beta" in the background or am I seeing stars? Is there re-branding or perhaps Designer based on MacOS Catalyst?
  4. Congratulations, Serif. You have done it again. Publisher voted the best Mac app for 2019
  5. Hi Affinity Staff, I have been working through publisher and changing a filler text to two columns. On pressing the drop-down error to change to 2, the application crashes. I re-opened Publisher which presented an option to restore the file, so I did. This time, I decided to type 2 in the column field and hit the return key and the application crashes again. Please find attached the crash_report. Kind Regards, Nana Affinity Publisher [1807]_Crash_When_changing_column_text_frame.txt

    Affinity Designer for MacOS - 1.7.1

    Thanks. Designer 1.7.1 is already in app store.
  7. Hi Serif Staff, Reading between the lines from the current Publisher pre-order email sent out, it suggests that Serif would prefer users to purchase from their own Serif App Store than the Apple App Store. I can see the advantage in doing that. For example, it helps to break away from Apple's strict sandboxing of application that is plaguing some plugins. My question is, would Serif consider helping existing Apple store users to move to your Serif App Store version given that Apple store users have already paid for the app? I am talking from the view of Photo and Designer MacOS apps in particular. It doesn't make sense to run some Serif apps under Apple sandboxing while Publisher does not. I can foresee this leading to some issues. I would prefer that all three apps (Designer, Photo and Publisher) run as the Serif App Store version. So if Serif would consider either issuing existing Mac App store new licenses to help migrating from the Apple Mac Apps store or even at a significant discount (after all, the Mac Apps store users have already paid for the apps). I would be interested in your response. Thank you. Nana
  8. I don't have this issue but I am running MacOS 10.14.4. Have you tried resetting the setting with Ctrl key? It seems to fix a bunch of issues. I have made a habbit of resetting settings before after installing a new beta before testing.
  9. Hi Affinity Photo team, There are two different names "Noise Reduction" and "Live Denoise" for the same panels in which does exact the same. This can be a bit confusing. Noise Reduction Panel Live Denoise Panel May be you can consider "Live Denoise" and "Denoise" or "Live Noise Reduction" and "Noise Reduction"
  10. Hi Affinity Photo team, This is the "Shadow and Highlight" under Develop, Tone Mapping and the Adjustment tab under the Photo Personas. This is the "Shadow and Highlight" Live Filter. I find the "Live Filter" more powerful and useful. Why don't we replicate the "Live Filter" interface across the various Personas. I think this will also provide the same look and feel across personas.
  11. Hi Affinity Photo team, It will be good to have a consistent Curves tool across the various Personas. This is the Curves tool under the Develop and Tone Mapping Personas. This is the Curves tool under the Photo Persona It will be nice to have the Curves tool under the Photo Personal in Develop and Tone Mapping Personas to create consistency. In that case, it doesn't matter what personal one enters, the tools functions exactly the same.
  12. Have you tried PDF Expert ? It's very light weight and does a pretty good job. I have been using the Mac version since release 1.0 and I can't complain.
  13. I will be interested to know what efficiencies or functionalities that are baked into the new version 1.7 file format compared to the the eariler version 1.7 file format or even version 1.6 file format. Perhaps, that would put a lot of these arguments to rest
  14. @AdamW, the hyperlinks feature is a great and welcome feature but as it stands, a text that has been made into a hyperlink appears the same as every other text. There is no default styling of the archor text to differentiate it from other text on the spread. It would be good to make the hyperlinks easily differentiable from the rest of the text
  15. Hi AdamM, This is picking up our conversation from Affinity Publisher Beta Forum and your response. My suggestion is that, once a user detaches a Spread frame from the Master Page, edit the text frame or other items on the spread and you click finish button, it automatically re-attach to the Master Page. My reason is that, without that subsequent edits to the Master Page will not be automatically picked up by this Spread. This can easily lead to unnecessary confusion on the users part. Another advantage is that, one can be sure that once a Spread is attached to to Master Page, the Spread maintains linkage with the Master Page unless the user explicitly decides to break this linkage. I hope this will be taking into consideration. Nana
