  1. Application Hang macOS - Designer Computer: iMac Retina 4K, 21.5, 2017, Radeon Pro 560 4 GB macOS: 10.14.6 (all updates) Designer: 1.7.2 Used the Duplicate command to copy a simple rectangular shape. After using Command J four (4) times I used Command S to save the recent changes. The application hung with a spinning beach ball and had to force quit to recover.

  2. Affinity Publisher Coping and Pasting text into a table cell cashes program Are you using the latest release version? Yes / 1.7.2 Can you reproduce it? Yes Does it happen for a new document? Yes If you cannot provide a sample document then please give an accurate description of the problem for example it should include most of the following: Computer: iMac Retina 4K, 21.5 inch 2017, Radeon Pro 560 4 GB macOS: Mojave 10.14.6 (all updates) Pages: 8.1 (6369) Using information from an Apple Pages table. Please note that I am copying and pasting individual cells, not the complete table. Highlight text in the table cell Copy text with Command C Select cell in Publisher table Paste text as unformatted text Click in column heading to adjust column width to fit text. Program crashes. In general coping and pasting text from a Pages table does not work. The application will also crash if: Copy multiple Pages cells and paste them into multiple Publisher cells.

  3. Hi Jon P: Thanks for looking into this problem. Known it is problematic when you can not recreate the issue but it always occurs for me. Yes the problem occurs with any Pages document. I just created a new Pages document and the same problem occurred. Not sure what information would help, to recap. I can paste the text into a Publisher cell without a problem. The crash occurs for me every time I do this: Hover over an existing column and click on the arrow icon to display the following options: Autofit Column to Contents When I select the above option the program will cash. Test today with new Pages document. Create new Pages document and Select Insert>Table> Basic. Type a word into a cell and select just the word. Copy with command C. Create new Publisher document. Use the Table Tool to create a table. [Table is the only thing in the document] Select a cell in the table and paste text without formatting. [So far no crash] Select the arrow icon at top of column and click “Autofit Column to Contents”. Program crashes.

    External Hard Drives Freezing

    Hi: The fastest and simplest way to troubleshoot your problem is to see what information the drive manufacturer has. Check the web site or contact their support. The problem you are having is a common problem when the external drives are format NTFS. If the drives are format NTFS it takes a driver to write to the disk, macOS natively supports reading but not writing. When you update macOS the driver no longer is supported and the drives will not work correctly. How are the drives formatted? Can you copy files to the drives using finder? Have you used disk utility to check the drives? Hope this helps.
  5. Hi jhazel0705: Checkout the tutorial. It may show you what the problem is. Uplift Epic Skies (1.6 Bonus Content) - YouTube / Vimeo (New; 2nd November) Link: https://vimeo.com/240834026
  6. Affinity Utility Application It would be nice to have a standalone utility that would support all the Affinity applications, current and future. This utility could be as simple or elaborate as you would like to make it. Some suggestions for this utility would be: Move the application help system for each application to this utility. Currently when the help file is open it is always on top of the application window. If you would like to see the help window and work on the application at the same time you can not do it. Moving the help system to another application should allow you to have the help window and application window open at the same time and move between the two easily. Have the ability to bookmark a section. Have the ability to annotate a section. Have a user configured section, personal help file notes, etc. Ability to provide updates at anytime independent from application updates. Save restore and manage all application customization settings I do very little program customization since historical I always seem to loose the settings at some point. If you have made a lot of customization and have everything just like you want it, getting everything back can be a very time consuming job. If the customization settings were managed by a separate utility this would reduce the possibility of losing these settings when the programs are upgraded or a reinstall is required. Have the ability to save settings. Have list of saved configurations and ability to restore from the list. If you try sometime and do not like it you can go back to a previous configuration. Backup file system Save snap-shots of files. Manually backup and restore files. Simple and easy way for the user to backup and restore files created by the application. Ability to save the original file in photo before developing or making changes. Save manage and install brushes Program diagnostics Notes to assist user with troubleshooting problems Diagnostic applications Just some things to think about.
