  1. Hi Serif Stuff, StudioLink is a very powerful technology and there is none like it currently in the industry. The ability to seemlessly switch to Designer or Photo from Publisher is great. What would even be greater is if this feature is ported to Affinity Photo and Designer so that if one is in Photo or Designer and has a need to bring in some of the powerful tools in either of their application, we can use StudioLink rather that the current "Open in Designer" and "Open in Photo". Just a suggestion.
  2. 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?
  3. 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
  4. Thanks. Designer 1.7.1 is already in app store.
  5. 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
  6. You can use the snapshot studio for this purpose. It allows you to take a snapshot of your work at whatever stage you deem fit. You can then revert to that state at any time. From top level menu, select View-> Studio->snapshot
  7. 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"
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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
  12. Hi Pixelplucker, I think your comments gives a misinformation about Serif's commitment on this topic. If you read TonyB's last response he indicated that Serif will consider the PagePlus file importer utility but on the proviso that all planned features are first implemented. This decision makes sense from a business perspective. Remember, at the end of the day, Serif is a business and not an NGO. The question becomes, "What is the business driver to prioritise the implementation a PagePlus importer utility to the detriment of a feature-rich Affinity Publisher app with a potential to bring additional revenue to Serif?". I am sure the developers and other Serif staff don't go to work daily because they have a charitable heart and don't expect a salary in return. In my humble opinion, if one considers the percentage of potential purchasers of Affinity Publisher users with legacy PagePlus files (and I mean no disrespect here) in comparison with potentially new customers whose requirement is dependent on a feature-rich application for their ever-demanding productivity needs, it doesn't make business sense to retro-fit a legacy application file importer at the expense of potential revenue gain. I would take exactly the same approach if I were in Serif's shoes. The issue here is that Serif hasn't ruled out the PagePlus importer utility. Only that, again, retro-fitting a legacy application file importer is not their topmost agenda which I completely support. I think Serif staff and developers deserve our commendation for the outstanding work that they are doing rather than people randomly nailing them to the cross without proper consideration. Yes, the PDF export of PagePlus files and import into APub may not be an ideal solution but at least it's a workable workaround in the mean time. Just remember that it may be easy to code but to write a software that altogether works well requires real commitment and talent and I believe the Serif staff are doing very well in this light. That is just my two cents worth
  13. Hi Affinity team, Just a suggestion that it would really be helpful to allow setting documents bleed settings on the new document dialogue window. You already allow "include margins". Why not allow "include bleed" from the same dialogue? I think this can be done for all the three product suite. As it stands now, it's two step process where one needs to set the documents dimension and come back into document settings again to include bleed. Just a thought. I am really loving Publisher. Well done team.
  14. Same here. I have just voted for Affinity Designer. Well done Mark and team. You deserver to win
