  1. Willkommen in den Foren @kreativekiste.de Ausgehend von Ihrer Beschreibung nehme ich an, dass Sie sich auf die Kontrollpunkte vom Typ Bezier-Knoten beziehen, die angezeigt werden, wenn Sie den Knoten auswählen, der zur Bestimmung der Länge/Steigung des Liniensegments verwendet wird? Diese Kontrollpunkte können einzeln verschoben werden, aber mir ist keine Funktion bekannt, mit der beide Punkte gleichzeitig verschoben werden können. Diese Funktion wurde bereits angefordert, so dass sie möglicherweise noch hinzugefügt wird. Nachdem Sie einen der Griffe in der gewünschten Entfernung platziert und dann die UMSCHALTTASTE gedrückt haben, können Sie den anderen Griff verschieben und ihn in derselben Entfernung wie den ersten vom Zentrum einrasten lassen, aber die UMSCHALTTASTE schränkt den Griffwinkel ein. Eine kleine vertikale Linie zeigt an, dass die beiden Griffe den gleichen Abstand haben.
  2. Hi @k_au, Initially following the steps strictly in this bug report post, I created a 2x1m 40DPI document, I then placed a 2560x1440 TIFF file at 100% scale on the page (40DPI) and exported the document to PDF using 60DPI. When I used Acrobat's object inspector the image had not undergone any upscaling and honoured the same resolution as my original Publisher file. I tried a few PDF/X methods as well as 1.7 but the result was the same. However after an overview of your linked thread I am seeing the unusual upscaling as described in Lacerto's post when comparing an image that has been masked using a clipping mask to an image that has been masked via an image nested into a rectangle so it does look like this needs logging. However, your steps don't mention about a use of any type of mask and I can't replicate the problem without a mask. I've also tried this with JPEG via drag and drop into my document and then export but the result was the same as above with the correct scaling honoured. Could you possibly provide a sample .afpub document where you have experienced this scaling issue, along with the exported PDF equivalent and a screenshot of your export settings for comparison? I can provide a private upload link if needed Many thanks
  3. Hi @Dawny70, If you're encountering crashes on open/saving files containing SVG resource files this is a priority bug currently logged with the developers which should be fixed in the next version (No ETA on a release currently). I have now bumped it with your report.
  4. Welcome to the forums @cechandl, I'm not seeing this behaviour with endnotes in my sample document as the 'Go To' buttons work as expected, could you confirm if you're on MacOS or Windows, that your app is up to date (v2.3) and provide me with a copy of the document you're having this issue with so we can look into this further? I have provided a private upload link below if you do not wish to share it publicly. Upload: https://www.dropbox.com/request/bRLvVPlJFGLcXlPirXZV Many thanks
  5. Hi @_Th, I've now logged this with the developers. For reference this panel close behaviour was the same in V1.
  6. Hi @Aammppaa, Thanks for the detailed steps, I've replicated and logged this with the developers.
  7. I've just tested this for myself with two exports of your .afphoto, one with no compression and the other with ZIP compression applied and both opened as expected in Photoshop, is it possible that you had 'Save with Affinity layers' ticked? It may be worth checking this is unticked and re-exporting again, and also confirm that the uncompressed tiff can be opened in Affinity before trying it in PS. I did notice using the ZIP compression method did significantly cut down the TIFF file size from 2.4gb to 1.2gb and with it being lossless the image quality is preserved.
  8. Are you referring to export file formats? Each come with their own advantages and drawbacks so the best format can be subjective and also dependant on what you're exporting along with it's intended final use. I'm guessing that you were exporting to PSD as you wanted to open your document in Photoshop while preserving the existing pixel layers and adjustments? TIFF may be a good choice since it's quite versatile and lossless but you'll likely still end up with a huge final file size, and with it being a raster based file format your layers will get flattened.
  9. Welcome to the forums @Msunagi, This issue has been previously logged with the developers so i've now updated the issue to reflect that this is still an issue as of the 2.3 release and bumped it with your reports. I'm also seeing this behaviour on the swatches so i've added this info onto the logged issue.
  10. This issue is still outstanding internally, i've updated the issue to reflect that it's still an issue in 2.3 and bumped it with your report. If there are any further updates on the issue the Serif info bot will reply to the thread automatically.
  11. Hi @Ryansamul, Thanks for the file, PSD files (Even in Photoshop) have a file size limitation of 2GB which cannot be exceeded, your .afphoto file is 5GB+ so when exporting your file out to PSD it's running into this size limit and therefore failing on export. In Photoshop it is possible to workaround this limitation by saving the file out as a PSB, however affinity does not currently support PSB export so this wouldn't be possible at the moment i'm afraid. The minimum doc size I can get your file exported out to PSD is when re-sizing the document down to 11000x11000.
  12. It looks like you have the MSIX version of the apps installed, these are sandboxed and as such they won't appear in a standard installation directory. I'd suggest deleting your existing desktop shortcuts and then following the guidance in the FAQ below re-create your shortcuts via the Shell:appsfolder.
  13. Hi @GavinEadie, These 'Application Library' type folders are controlled/created via System Settings > iCloud > iCloud Drive > 'Apps syncing to iCloud drive' menu. From a clean slate if you were to set an app to sync with the iCloud drive, this won't immediately create a folder in the iCloud drive but if you were to then open the app and save a file the iCloud sidebar offers the option to save the file to the iCloud folder, at which point the folder is available on the drive. These folders are currently shared between the V1, V2 and the beta apps but it's possible that your Affinity app library folder structure has gotten into a state and created duplicate app folders at some point in time even back in V1 (E.G the 'Publisher 3' dupe folder). With the folders being shared this can also create confusion, for example I believe I had originally created my Publisher iCloud app library folder from the beta apps both my V1 and V2 release apps would still associate with this folder, and the folder itself would be called 'Affinity Publisher 2 beta'. I don't think this is expected behaviour and is incredibly confusing so i'll be getting this logged with the developers and will reference your other points on the report. As I also had the 'Publisher 2 beta' folder as my default iCloud folder for both V1 and V2 release, after removing the beta app I had installed I unsynced Publisher 2 beta from the 'Apps syncing to iCloud drive' menu which removed the folder and it's contents, and then signed out and then back into iCloud on my Mac which then fixed the App library name to 'Affinity Publisher' when my iCloud drive re-synced. Personally I don't see any real advantage to using these 'app library' folders over just creating and managing my own folders on iCloud, as they do create a-lot of unnecessary hassle and confusion currently.
  14. Welcome to the forums @keithfishbiscuit, To clarify, are you referring to the App desktop shortcuts or a specific document/file type? Could you possibly send us a screenshot of these Icon's you're referring to that are now blank? If it's the desktop shortcuts to launch the apps, I'm not sure how the installation of another app such as Libreoffice has had any impact on the shortcut icon, but if you originally installed the apps via the .EXE/MSI installer it can be changed under the right click > properties > shortcut > change icon. It should be pointed towards the default installation folder for the app icon, shown below for Photo. If you installed via the MSIX package you could re-create the desktop shortcut via the shell:appsfolder and this should restore the original shortcut (see guide below)
  15. Thanks for the recording, there’s an issue logged internally in relation to the app canvas area flickering with HDR enabled on certain displays, and mouse movements/clicks can also trigger it so it’s possible that you’re encountering this issue as it’s not picked up by software screen recorders as you originally described. With all the apps closed, Try disabling HDR in Windows Settings > Display and then reboot and then see if it persists. There’s also a separate screen flicker issue logged with certain displays when G-SYNC is enabled in the Nvidia Control panel, but I don’t think you’d be encountering this one unless you have a G-SYNC compatible display and a dedicated Nvidia Graphics card.
  16. Both the Zhuyin input issue and CMD + S Save issue are both logged internally still, so as mentioned in my previous reply the Serif Info Bot will reply automatically here if there are any further updates.
  17. Thanks, with it being as intermittent as you've described throughout your app session it's possible that one certain action is causing this, i'll keep trying a few different things but ultimately if you can capture it happening on a recording that would be great. ----- Thanks for providing further information in regards to your second point, with the current functionality of the 'none' controller removing any variance properties on any curves previously drawn being the expected behaviour currently i'd suggest posting this functionality request for profile flattening over on the feedback section of the forum. 🙂 https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/forum/122-feedback-for-the-affinity-v2-suite-of-products/
  18. The issues are still outstanding internally, this thread is tagged with the issue references so if there are any updates to them internally the Serif info bot will automatically reply to the thread advising. Unfortunately your pointer animation issue is still not re-producible internally when following your same configuration and recording so this has not been logged as of yet.
  19. I can see from the thread below that the print driver refresh has fixed your issue, so my reply can be disregarded 🙂
  20. Hi @Secret Goldfish, After quite some trial and error of switching between every tool in my toolbar combined with drawing and altering different objects I can't re-produce a problem with this, for the entirety of the app/document session my original brush selection was always maintained whenever I switched back to the tool, I've tried a few different categories and the brush selection remained consistent. Could you try and possibly capture this issue on a screen recording? I'm not sure I follow with this one or at minimum I can't replicate this. I created a new solid vector brush in a new category with a 75% size variance and 50% opacity variance, I select that vector brush with my controller set to 'Pressure' along the context toolbar the size/opacity adjusts accordingly with the pressure applied in line with the graph of my chosen profile. If I change the context toolbar controller to 'None' the brush stops responding to pressure, if I then change this back to 'Pressure' it then applies the same opacity/size variances originally set, the action of changing my controller has in no way changed my variances on my custom brush. Could you possibly provide a recording/screenshots demonstrating this issue as well? Screen record FAQ: Many thanks
  21. Hi @markphoto, I'm not able to replicate a problem with this with 2.3's print dialog. If you want to try using 2.3 again could you remove your existing apps from your Mac and then download and install using the .DMG files rather than use the in-app updater and then confirm if it prompts the print dialog?
  22. Hi @MxHeppa, Without a recording it would be hard to say what's potentially happening, in this situation if you're able to record your monitor from an external device to capture what you're describing we can look into this further.
  23. I'm also able to re-produce the PSD embedded policy changing to linked when the file is re-opened and i've now logged this with the developers.
  24. Welcome to the forums @fcs_77, SVGS generated in matplotlib failing to import into the Affinity apps correctly is a known issue that has been previously logged with the developers, so i'll bump the existing issue with your report. Was your second SVG file exported from affinity, originally created in Affinity? The text appears to be comprised of text layers that are all strangely fragmented apart which appears to be the problem. For example 'capacity' at the bottom of the graph is split into two separate text frames 'CAPAC' and 'ITY' and they overlap with one another dependant on the font used/substituted. I noticed this as I didn't originally have Montserrat installed so the fonts were subbed with Arial so the issue wasn't visible on the SVG when viewed in a Web Browser or the App. However, as soon as I installed the Montserrat font (A slightly different version to your embedded 'MontserratRoman') the issue became visible when using the standard Regular variant, but the Thin variant showed the text as expected. To avoid all these formatting issues it might make more sense prior to exporting out to SVG to re-write graph labels as singular art text/text frame objects, that way the bottom and left text labels won't end up overlapping if it gets substituted for another when opened across different devices/apps.
