  1. In Blurb's Bookwright programme you are able to preview what your pages will look like when you export the file. You just press the Preview button, check, and return with one more button press. With Publisher the only option is to press Tab for a Full Screen without panels option. But I have found that in a two-page spread the one page is occasionally (not always) slightly higher than the other, which makes it difficult to align photos and text on facing pages. I assume that this is a glitch that will be fixed. However, I'd still like to be able to Preview and not have to wait for unpleasant surprises after I have exported the file.
  2. Actually, I've just found out on the Facebook Publisher page that the shortcut is Tab. It's still not the same as Preview in Blurb's Bookwright, which shows you what your page will look like, not just an enlarged Full Screen version. As, for instance, in a two-page spread the one page is occasionally (not always) slightly higher than the other, which makes it difficult to align photos and text on facing pages. I assume that this is a glitch that will be fixed. I will be posting a suggestion for a Preview.
  3. This doesn't work for me. I'm on the PC version. It's an option that I'd dearly like.
  4. Thanks, I've changed mine to 402. Hope that works. The reason for the upload fail was my VPN... Here it is. Orestes_Contacts014_Iris_Imaginary_child_1.afphoto
  5. Just done the first one of the day (no slowing down yet...). Here's the .afphoto file. Wow, it's really big. The Jpeg is 2.38mbs... Whoops - There was a problem processing the uploaded file. -200 Tried twice. Now what? Orestes_Contacts014_Iris_Imaginary_child_1.afphoto Orestes_Contacts014_Iris_Imaginary_child_1.afphoto
  6. Hi, Gabriel, Thanks. No, I don't have a lot of live filters. There's generally an adjustment layer, sometimes two (I know, these aren't Live Filters), plus an Unsharp Mask Live Filter, occasionally a Clarity or an Add Noise. I generally Export the file to a Jpeg (it's needed for two books I'm publishing on Blurb, which only accepts Jpegs), so I don't save them as .afphoto as that just takes up space. I will do it on my next photo. So far, I've tried to cope by closing and re-opening AF, but that doesn't seem to help. It's been getting worse. Yesterday, working on my MacBook Pro, each filter/adjustment/save was taking a minimum of 15 seconds, and up to 90. Best wishes, Brian
  7. I've just started using AP and am finding that both on my PC (WIn10 64Bit) and MacBook Pro all the processes start to slow down after a while. These include making various Adjustments, using the Filter dropdown to access Unsharp Mask and Clarity, etc., and Saving and Exporting. Is there a way of getting around this. In Photoshop on the PC I have a special dedicated SSD drive that the programme uses as temporary storage, and which speeds up all the processes. I can't seem to find a similar option in AP. It gets really bad, occasionally slowing down the process by up to five minutes.
  8. Ignore the question - found it staring at me on the TOP of the panel...
  9. Is there any way of getting the actual size (in Mb) to show somewhere in Affinity Photo? In Photoshop it shows at the bottom of the screen. Also, is there any way to get the Metadata to display?
  10. I've now come across this twice. After adding an adjustment layer the Inpainting tool ceases to function. I've tried closing and opening the file, rasterising it (as suggested in another thread). I also can't get the Merge function to work - finally had to use the Flatten option. Loving the programme - only had it since Friday. It's transforming my working life. Still so much to learn though. Lots of great tutorials, though the Black and White area is a bit sparse.

    Using new Beta

    I'm trying to use the new beta version, but each time I try to open it it tells me that a paid version needs to be installed. A paid version IS installed. What can I do?
