  1. Ah, more images from you! My day just got a little bit better😎
  2. No it's not there for me either. But then Open and Save windows, in all Mac apps, always use a sort of striped down version of the normal Finder window toolbar. And Affinity’s Open and Place command windows follow the same pattern.
  3. That 4th one is Gallery view, at least that’s what it is in Catalina. You get a big thumbnail in the main area of the Finder window of a selected file or Folder with smaller scrollable thumbnails along the bottom of the window of all other files/Folders in the same folder. Its also possibly worth adding, for those new to Mac and Finder, that Finder windows and their content can be customised in several places within the OS Finder > Preferences Finder > View, where there is a long list of options. One of which is ‘Show View Options’ which brings up a sort of mini additional "Preferences" window for how content is displayed in Finder windows. System Preferences > General
  4. Your time is never wasted Patrick when making these images! Beautiful as always😎
  5. We just posted simultaneously I think😀 See my post above the example you just posted!
  6. Thinking on this some more, are you wanting to add text just bellow individual images? If so; after using one of APhoto’s text tools, position your text where you wish it below the actual image, don’t worry that you can’t see your text just now. Next, go to; Document > Unclip Canvas. Your canvas area should now have extended to include your text. If you need the image in a format that normally supports transparency in an image, .png for example, but you do not want the area behind the text to be transparent, switch to the Export persona and in the list of export options, select a colour for the Matte option and then export from there.
  7. Sorry, but I’m not sure now of what you are trying to do with image and text? Are you wanting to add text to images that are part of a larger document/page, with areas outside of the actual images? Could you post some screenshots for clarification?
  8. Why not use the Frame Text or Artistic Text tool/s in APhoto? After adding text, go to File > Export to save the new edited image. Or; If you are happy to save over the original image use File > Save, and in the popup Save window choose Save Flattened from the options and then close the image in APhoto.
  9. Yes, great to see you posting something here again Patrick😀 For me, either of the first two images would get me wanting to attend such an event! Just love your work!😎
  10. This is a known and longstanding bug going back at least to 2020: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/124433-layer-thumbnails-often-dont-render/#comment-681124
  11. At this point I can only echo what NotMyFault says regarding the export issue. But as to the work itself, I see the second entry up from the bottom says Toldeo, Ohio. Should that not also be Toledo, Ohio?
  12. A fairly quick one you say! I fear my idea of "quick" may fall far short of yours! Outstanding work as always!😎
  13. Well, that’s odd…? In the OP’s second two screenshots it looks like how the document titles were displayed in Designer round about v1.7. But the Toolbar options dropdown are definitely for the current version but minus the Status/Title Field? Very strange?? I wonder if @vitaprimo can confirm which macOS version and Designer version they are running?
  14. As always your work leaves me just speechless!😎
  15. On my Mac the keys for navigating forward & back through a documents pages are; fn+cmd+up/down arrow keys. Though this may vary depending on how you have setup your keyboard. On screen, there are forward and back buttons in the bottom left corner of Publisher's window. If you are wanting on screen Undo & Redo buttons then no, there are none. But you can use the slider in the History panel to move though your edit history.
  16. Could you use a rectangle to clip the content of each Artboard, as in the attached example. Dose this give you what you want? Clipping.afdesign
  17. I get the same results as Old Bruce with your example AD file, it exported to PDF just fine, with all text still editable after opening the exported PDF back in AD. Can you give more info as to your PDF export settings and which version of macOS you are on?
  18. Where Autosaved files, if any, are stored will depend on your system and where you purchased your copy of Designer from. On Macs the files will be in one of two places: If purchased from the Mac App Store; /Users/user-name-here/Library/Containers/com.seriflabs.affinitydesigner/Data/Library/Application Support/autosave Or if purchased from Serrif; /Users/user-name-here/Library/Application Support/Affinity Designer/autosave Any files found in either of those locations are named with the date and time of their creation: Year/Month/Date/Time To open one of these files, copy it to another location and rename it’s file extension to .afdesign and then open it as normal. It also maybe worth looking at your OS system backups to see if they contain any recent viable copies of the damaged file.
  19. Looks like you are in Separated windows mode. In the Menubar go to: Window > Separated Mode and deselect it.
  20. Hello Sally_Jane and welcome to the Affinity forums🙂 You ask about possible third party apps? I’ve used an app called Klokki for a while now which fits my needs. It’s Mac only, but if you are on a Mac they do offer a 14 day free trial.
  21. Or if you are not a good draughtsperson/artist nor have access to 3D sofware, you can look on vector graphics sites, many of which have generic wire frame heads available.
  22. I’ve seen this happen occasionally too at times. Never with photos, that I can recall, but sometimes with small graphics images. This is some kind of rendering issue within AP, the actual image inside AP, as it were, is fine and will export correctly. On the left of this screenshot the original test image. And on the right the same image after being saved in AP. Steps for the below Left Image: Launch AP > File Open… or Drag and Drop image onto AP Dock icon or Right Click on file and choose Open With… etc… Steps for the below Right Image: Open image in AP as above. Save using Save As… and close. Open the new AP file containing the image and it displays as shown on the right. A work around to correct this is after opening the image use File > Place… and place the original image again in the document. Now delete the first instance of the image from the Layers panel and Save. This also works if opening the document at a later date. Just find the original image and use Place… as above. If you do not have the original image to place anymore then you can first export the image from the effected document and then use it with the Place… command as above.
  23. It sounds as though you have a lot of non connected nodes overlaying each other. Thus giving the illusion that you have made complete objects. If you could post some screenshots which also include the Layers panel with a description of what you are trying to make that might help. Looking at your first screenshot that could be: 1: Two solid objects, with the triangle on top of the larger shape. Or 2: Three separate trapeziums with their corners touching.
