  1. Ah I understand now, If you wish to replace something exactly there are a couple of things you could do, the first would be to use the replace image function on the context toolbar. Another way would be to change the placement policy to linked (File > Placement Policy) and then your image will update once it's overwritten, meaning any change you make will be reflected in your document automatically without re-importing. Lee
  2. Hi Starbase1, What software are you creating your images in? There are specific workflows and file formats that might help you simplify the process. For example, rendering as a Multilayer EXR file in 3D software can bring through all the elements of a 3D image such as ambient occlusion, mist, depth maps, normals, as separate layers all in one single file. With regard to replacing layers, whichever layer is at the top will be the one that is first visible, you can then alter layer settings such as the blend mode (how it interacts with the layers below it) and the opacity of the layer.

  3. Absolutely, this is also normal on any software. You interrupt the process the after writing it successfully the first time. Arguably we should prevent you from being able to do that, however it's not really a major issue as if you complete your export process again, you once again have a new file. Lee
  4. Hi Ashf, If you place (not drag into a document) and ensure PDF pasthrough is enabled on the layer, this will display a rasterised version. Lee
  5. Hi Alex_M, This is normal behaviour, the file is immediately deleted and rewritten (represented by the progress bar). As you are interrupting the export process, you are seeing that the file is no longer recognised by the OS as a an image file due to it being only part completed. Lee
  6. Hi Javi Gil, welcome to the forums. Glad you sorted your issue, appreciate you posting how you resolved it, I'm sure it will help someone in the future. Lee
  7. The laptop itself has a 1366 X 768 display, so it's not great to be honest, but @chasm you said it was the same when looking on a 40 inch tv too? how are you watching them on the TV, using the computer or something else? Lee
  8. Hi HerrDerToene, Thanks for letting us know about this, not something I was personally aware of, interesting stuff. Lee
  9. Can you screenshot your installed fonts from the Affinity Photo prefences? Lee
  10. Hi Pookiepal, That's not happening here, are your App and OS updated to the latest versions, it might also be worth restarting (not force resetting) your iPad fully and seeing if the issue persists. Lee
  11. Hi Gregwald, welcome to the forums. In addition it might be worth watching this tutorial video on how to use the focus merging feature. Lee
  12. You may have an issue with scaling in your browser. If you can't resolve this, right clicking any image and saving it will allow you to look at the image as large as you like in your operating system. Lee
  13. Hi Steven, It's likely you were running the software from the install DMG, which after a restart will be ejected by the system. To properly install, open the installation DMG you downloaded, drag the Affinity software to the Applications folder on your mac, then drag from Applications folder to your bottom bar to create an accessible shortcut. Now if you open up finder, in the "devices" section, on the left side, you'll see the Installation virtual drive, which you can now eject. Lee
