  1. Ditto that!
  2. Sorry MEB I applied the beta patch and to no avail, still doing exactly the same

  4. Yes can confirm, no crash if gobbledygook is written but instant crash if a word proper is typed (weird!) I also clicked on the metatext and actually joined Upsplash wondering if that was anything towards the anomaly and typed the same search criteria in their search engine and it all worked, so I await a fix - or just use one of the other two search stations below UpSplash.
  5. Hi Gary, How odd! I have shut my system down now and writing this in bed on an eye pad. I will have a go at that tomorrow regards Sean
  6. Gary Learn Tech, I do not yet have Publisher but after watching the Serif presentation video on youtube yesterday I pressed the stock button on Affinity Photo for the first time and on my rather aged MacBook Pro 15" 2010 running High Sierra 10.13.6 I have exactly the same issue with Upsplash, in fact, that is the reason I am here today looking for a fix. shall keep my eyes peeled.
  7. I know I keep harping back to DrawPlus, but this function is a "Must Have" in my way of working. I use it ALL the time in DP and it saves oodles of time if I have multiple pages and want to keep text etc consistent through out the work. I can't seem to find anything at present that replicates this in AFFINITY - Would this be a possibility either now or in the future - Is there a work around/method at present that I am missing ...(again!)? :huh: :)
  8. I notice that the pen tool has a nib and the brush tool has a round, just wondering if the pencil tool will get it's own icon instead of the curser at present?

    Toy Alarm Clock

    I did a 3D version of this using Modo (A sub division Modelling Program) and got the reference image from this output. I used bitmap fills for the steel ringers and tried all the effects knowhow that I use when drawing stuff using DrawPlus. Nothing broke whilst making this image - But when I tried exporting as JPEG I noticed that set at 100% the calculate size info read zero I will see if this has been submitted as a fault at 99% the image registered 446kb DropBox link to Aff File Toy Clock.afdesign This is more up to date link https://www.dropbox.com/s/vwm37ye525omrad/toy%20clock2.afdesign
  10. I know that it is early days so probably this is in a thought process anyhow Is there going to be a proper shadow tool as there is in DrawPlus with all the clickable handles as such. I found the only way to suss out shadows was via the FX tab and it seemed limited at first to just 100px until I messed about and found that the "Offset tool" provides a lot more freedom. Though not much tooltip explanation as yet!
  11. Is this 3D effect going to have a larger lathe proportion than the minimalistic 100 px that is the max depth at present? I can't see it being much use as is!

    Hi guys DaveS is not alone in this query about the all black interface - I too find it hard to see the tools and I would prefer a light grey background similar to Drawplus at present if a choice could be made - Perhaps one for a wish list then :mellow:
  13. I was just wondering if this is going to be a Mac only product, or is there aspirations for a windows release too?

    A Format Painter Tool?

    Thanks Tony, Yes as per usual I missed that - it doesn't show up on right click context menu - only the top EDIT menu. And I can confirm that it does not presently work on text.

    Is this enough Mac?

    I see Hils beat me to it Lon. I was satisfied with the confirmation that the memory card they sent was a compatible match - I guess I just trusted them on that one - I didn't need any such Upgrade flash on my 2010 MacBook Pro 15" and it's still chugging along fine - Hope I've not just cursed myself saying that! :o

    Is this enough Mac?

    Hi Lon - it's been a while since I did any testing lol I have a Macbook Pro and I upgraded the RAM to 8GB myself very easily and it wasn't all that expensive either I used crucial to read the spec and they told me the exact part to buy (sold it to me) and I followed an online Crucial video to do the change over *sweet* Good luck!

    Floki from Vikings

    Great Job Chris, really looks lifelike :)
  18. I was trying to position a shape in a drawing that I am doing in AFFINITY and found that there is no easy way of rotating this shape by means of moving it's centre point akin to what can be done in Drawplus, just pure rotate at the moment. Unless I am missing something? If so, will there be a function to move the centre accordingly at some stage?
  19. It's a bit hit and miss that Tony, sometimes I get a splash screen saying Cut Copy and Paste if I click on Ctrl on a Mac Book Pro It has to be pressed slightly after rotating on the original axis for best results. Good option though. ;)
  20. Thanks Tony, I tried all the conventional key presses and found nothing earlier.
  21. Ahh! Got you now, you have to use the slider! It's a bit cumbersome - I would prefer to click the object and rotate on the chosen anchor point than slide the slider. (No wonder it wouldn't move with the mouse over the object!)
  22. Hi Matt I appreciate what you say, but, in order to see how you did the drawing I had to physically click each tick box to turn off the visibility till I had just the initial car shape object visible. Then I preceded to click each object's visibility box to bring them in one by one - Not a huge problem, but, I wondered if some quicker way was possible to code re - selecting the visibility tick boxes. This is just a suggestion to ease workflow - not a bug!
  23. I just downloaded Matt's Car and saw that there is a multitude of layers, it seems like one layer per object almost. I would like to see an easy way of multiple selecting /de-selecting the visibility if possible - Hold down a key whilst selecting individual layers to hide or show - Is this possible? and perhaps group selecting adjacent ticks in one click between these adjacent layers (maybe!) I personally would have more than one object on a layer but that is by the by. :rolleyes:

    Lamborghini Miura - Work in progress...

    Good work Matt :)
  25. I just had a look at all the other programmes I have and a cross hair seems the overall choice for the pencil so I would keep with traditional and go down that route.
