  1. Hello, Today i have installed Affinity Publisher and first of all I have compiled my worklow as far as possible. But it is not possible. I had hoped the many suggestions (earlier for AP and AD) would have had an effect. But nothing at all has done. The possibility to create, organize and save your own workflow is extremely important to me. And also the lateral docking is still not possible. I have opened 7 to 10 programs at times. And again and again a fragment of affinity lies in between and disturbs the complete working process. Really embarrassing. Sorry. I just can't understand it. It doesn't have to be as perfect as in Capture One Pro :-) Maybe that doesn't interest most people at all. But me very much. Publisher uninstalled! Thanks for trying out a minute
  2. Fresh installation? what does that have to do with a fresh installation? Open program, open saved workspace (e.g. image editing), work. Or maybe, open the workspace - "working with text" .... OK, guys, the subject is for much simply difficult to understand. Small hint from another "world" Most people love their cars more than anything else. Now they buy a new car (other brand) after a comprehensive inspection. But then, oh, fright!!! The side mirrors must be completely readjusted after every engine start ... Start, adjust, drive off, switch off. Start, adjust, drive off .... Or, simply to avoid this, let the car run. 24 hours ... every day Translation -> suggestion (from my point of view) Any suggestions and ideas are welcome /Alle Vorschläge und Ideen sind willkommen. He had a sound rationale for his suggestion / Er hatte für seinen Vorschlag eine gute Begründung. I am always open for suggestions from the audience / Ich bin immer offen für Anregungen aus dem Publikum. This suggestion / feature request is as old as the Affinity Photo and Affinity Designer software. Now it would have been the time to use this option in Publisher. Then update AP and AD But it doesn't seem to be important for Serif at all. That's why I suggested the topic again and at the same time expressed my displeasure (because it has still not been implemented) Since I have noticed now also here in the forum that it does not seem really important, the matter is not further important to me to discuss here. No problem! Thank you very much for your critical remarks. It's really too complicated for me to discuss such a basically simple matter too misleadingly and in small parts ;-) workflow.mp4
  3. I don't understand!!! it's about the options of configuring the palettes and connecting them to each other as you would like them to. And then save this state. I must wonder what the answer is supposed to tell me. If this is too difficult, please close or delete the thread ... What is a suggestion that is correct labeled (?)
  4. Hi MEB I am wondering a bit, but thanks
  5. Hello, I have a graphic with about 30,000 anchor points. But maybe only 100 would be necessary. How can you simplify the graphic? I mean in some programs there is an extra tool "simplify" or something like that ... Unfortunately I don't find anything at Affinity Designer. If there is one, where could I find it? Thanks a lot Mischugo
  6. Hello, just want to do that: 1- Drawing a path 2 - Clicking (or right click, what i have expected) the path 3 - Create pixel selection from this path Any idea? Thanks
  7. OK, let me get this straight. It was all about handling the panels and saving them as a separate workspace. The handling now (see video) is the novelty, because you don't want to implement anything as if it were like in Photoshop. And this is now a "benefit" for a better workflow? I asked that as a request ages ago :-) Since this has not improved or changed to this day, no value is placed on it. I get it. Then let it be so. I hope I don't have to describe what I wanted to say with the video (?) Cheers and off AffinityPanelManagement.mp4
  8. I'm sorry I'm not fit in english or can express myself even better, but apparently the discussion here completely misses the point. The ability to organize panels works in both Photo and Photoshop. In Photoshop it is better and more comfortable for my taste. And in Photo doesn't want to implement this "problem" better, because you are worried that it would be like in Photoshop? Then it should be done even better I don't understand at all what there is not to understand about it. Unless you deny yourself out despite. If I had invented the KenBurn effect, you might like to improve and offer it. But in your opinion this is a No Go??? Oh oh oh But thanks
  9. It was about taking up the approach from Photoshop. But thank you for a really completely unprofessional answer. I'm happy to pass that on. There is no one who does not "absorb" and further develop any inspiration from other suppliers or products. There would also be no success in science if this were not the case. But it is important to copy the right things and then improve them further. I now realize that user experience and the implementation of important features, e.g. from the print industry, cannot be a passionate topic at Affinity. There are enough inquiries in the forum. There is almost nothing in Affinity that doesn't exist elsewhere. About Photoshop. Most people complain about Adobe and the subscription plans, but not about the software itself. I'd think about that. And too much vanity doesn't do you any good and doesn't achieve your goals either. Because your comment describes the attitude towards the further development of this program, it is I'll take care of it. Thank you again.
  10. In short words - i like to have the really same as in Photoshop. You can individually set and save your workspace, and will have then all in one main window. If you then resize your program windwow, all panels goes with you
  11. MacBook Pro 2013, NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M 2048 MI Intel Iris Pro 1536 MB High Sierra (since three weeks) 10.13.5
  12. ... and of course -> saving that a as Workspace
  13. Yes, i did. But it docks then not as a block at the main Affinity window. I don't like to have it like a floating block. When i resize the main window of Affinity, the block should go (horizontal) with it
  14. Ups, sorry. I doesn't mean the tools on left side, but the palettes / inspector panels. Putting all palettes i need together (docking) and this block should docking at the main window. Maybe i have to create a short screencast about it
  15. Hi Meb, I am fully aware that Affinity Photo and Designer are two powerful programs. What I miss is the certain flow. To have the tools where they are needed. Without first moving the cursor up and down the edge of the screen, then over a long horizontal area again, where the option I was looking for is located. All in all, in my view, this is far too cumbersome. This also means that it is still not possible to organize your palettes, for example in Photoshop, and to anchor them to the program window, like it fits my workflow ...
  16. Hi Meb, first, thank you so much for open my eyes to find the "selection". Thats what i wanted to do. But. Why didn't you give this function its own window in studio? Or is it hidden? When working with paths, a window, similar to Transform, would be more than helpful. I still think that important functions cannot be called up there, where they are needed. Namely at the mouse pointer /inspector. The Pen tool is now a small inconspicuous bar that is quickly overlooked. I didn't find it after 40 minutes, so I asked. There is a lot more to say about GUI. That's one reason why I just can't get warm with Affinity Photo and Designer. And i would like :-) But that's not appropriate here.
  17. It's incredible that there are still no options for bleed marks. I haven't used Affinity Designer for over six months. Too much trouble, many functions (standards) are missing Changing to Adobe again!

    Brush Tool with Wacom Tablet = Slow

    ... Not only for that kind of job. I just have to create really smooth masks, (like powder) to get some pictures together. I get crazy, because it does not work like expected. For now, it works with better with preasure off. But then, i dont need nor more Wacom. I just take the mouse. Incredibly annoying :-(
  19. Hi there, is there any option to create /change a smoothing paths from countless nodes? i have a big puzzle put together to one object and thousands of nodes. I would like to reduce them. Convert: "smooth" does not work, may be because it's an "union object"
  20. Hi there, is it really as i can see in the "new document" window... There is no user defined preset possible? Not in Affinity Designer or Photo! I can not save a preset for Facebook-Headers or Instagram-Images or whatever ...? And over all, i do not understand how the settings window works. The default is "Type" = Foto. When i change the measures to 1920px*1080px the type selector changes to "Web"??? When i change the Type to "Devices" there is no Broadcast or TV ...? I am really confused about that So, my request is: Please check this dialog box (settings) that it makes really sense for all possibilities :-( Regards Mischugo
  21. Slices: Why is slicing in Affinity Designer soooooooooo awkward? Changing the size? Copy or duplicate a slice? Too many attributes in the panel that don't interest me at first Isn't it possible yet? Or didn't i find it :-( Take a look to "SketchApp" from the Bohemian Team :-) (moved from feature roadmap by mod)
  22. Hello, because i can't find any way to import a eps or svg or pdf (vector) as a brush, there is no chance to have a real vector (path) brush, right? So, i can not create a some rope elements, export this to a vector abject (instead of a png) and use it then as a brush. If so, i like to have this as a feature :-) Thanks
  23. Hi there, I hope somebody has an idea. You remember, when you use the brush tool, you can change the size and sharpness with the short cut ctrl+option and dragging. This works with the mouse for Designer and Photo. But, why not with my Wacom Intuos 4 I get crazy :-( Thanks a lot
  24. Hello, is anybody here to explain, how to create a portrait style like this from any picture (portrait)? I would like to create vector graphics like this (see below) Also helpful could be a auto tracer software, but not with a monthly subscription Thanks for any hint, tipp ...
