  1. Click the little ! icon and allow download. Worked for me. Cheers Jens
  2. Thank you, I will check it out. If the download works I will try the install on the weekend. Cheers Jens
  3. "NO" has been pressed and commented that the link did not work! 😊
  4. Have you thought about an update using opencore to run Catalina? I have no Idea how that works but someone posted that he has an old mac running a new OS using opencore. Perhaps that is a solution. Cheers Jens
  5. Catalina is not the problem to come by - I can still update my mac to Catalina. I need Sierra - to run it in parallels. But thank you for helping!
  6. The Macworld links to Sierra, El Capitan & Yosemite do not work. I am downloading High Sierra right now.
  7. When I bought the mac V1, after my PC died, I checked the requirements and there were 3 updates between my OS and the minimum requirement. I thought I was on the safe side. I bought V2 without checking the requirements and downloaded it to see it not working. I dug into Serifs site to find them and the shock hit me. Running a small one-man-business means holding on to your money and thinking at least twice before you invest. That is one of the reasons why I never got CC and Affinity seemed the solution. I looked into all of these great proposals of using a virtual machine or a dual boot… The thing is I could update my mac to Catalina – that‘s the newest OS without OpenCore. Then I could install parallels… But alas Apple has taken away the option of downloading old OS versions. Without an ISO there is no way for me to use my old software after an upgrade, so I am stuck. I need CS6 for my work, so unless there is a way to get Sierra I am done. My other fear is that when Serif releases the next major update – there will be another significant jump in OS-versions. There is no workaround for me… Apple and Adobe probably don’t want anyone using old software or old OS versions – makes for bad sales.
  8. I read the FAQ... So if any OS older than Catalina is not supported anymore, why disable the option of buying V1? Just asking, because not everyone can go and buy new hardware. Isn't the required version on windows up to win11, too? Many poeple would need to buy new PCs to run win11 because of MS requirements. I am really angry and disapointed - I have to stop writing now... 😡
  9. Same here. I need CS6 because Affinity does not cover everything I need and I have a lot of old Files - specifically in InDesign. None of the features I wanted are in the upgrade and my system is no longer supported - sad. That kills it for me - was a nice experiment. Cheers Jens
  10. Hi, I have created a #Zine for #Zinequest - #Kickstarter. This is my first campaign. I used Affinity Designer for all of the illustrations (including the maps) - no special brushes, just the basic pen-tool. All of the textures were created or edited with Affinity Photo and the layout is in Affinity Publisher. The watercolour painting is not done with Affinity - I have yet to understand the brushes and such - especially how they work in the world of offset printing. I hope you will take a look at my campaign on Kickstarter -
  11. Wow. That is truly a let down. I still have to create the brushes I need. Perhaps I should use my old CS6 Illustrator from the get-go to avoid having blurry brushes like the example given above and needing to recreate them eventually. This is exactly why I posed the question to begin with. To make the image files smaller (bytes not resolution) it would be great if any of the Affinity products actually used and understood bitmap/line-art images - just ones and zeros. Then a brush would never feather and become blurry. Sadly serif decided that bitmap/line-art images are out of date and not needed any more. "High-Resolution Greyscale images will do fine, just make them transparent png-files." I have 2 catalogues (over 200 pages) that I frequently need to update for customers, full of line-art images of technical instructions, diagrams and electrical circuits which date back to the beginning of 2000. I would have loved to export (idml-file format) the catalogues so as to use publisher but I would have to reimport the images to make it work. There are up to 10 images per page which adds up to somewhere close to 2000 images to rework and reimport. So I still use my CS6 InDesign for that. Sorry for the tangent but I feel line-art/bitmap images have their value yet and especially when it comes to these "vector"-brushes. I will probably do some experimenting on the weekend with the brushes and figure out if I can make it work. Until the next update. Cheers Jens
  12. Yes a vector fill would be wonderful. As in choosing a symbol like the bitmap-option in the fill menu. +1 Vector fill option
  13. Thank you for the reply, but it does not answer my question. The thread is about making the images as small as possible, which I do not want. I need it for actual printing. The tutorials is nice - it explains how to create brushes but lacks any information about image sizes for creating brushes.
