  1. Thank you for this exceptional Generosity @Ash & Affinity Team. I shared your news with my other artist friends in the hope it may bring them some relief.
  2. I am very happy there will be an iPad version of affinity publisher as well coming next year. I am so happy for no more need for adobe. I am also royally shocked at the workflow improvement as seen in the live keynote. That is serious workflow efficiency. In-App advanced adjustments on the page in preview mode. Thanks again to the Serif Team.
  3. For my needs, launching the Publisher app is well timed. Now I don't need to rely on adobe subscription software at all. I can now create all the graphics, ebooks, and artwork for my Wholistic Artist LLC business without adobe. Yahoo! Thank you Serif Team for creating these apps, they feel way more intuitive and less mangled than photoshop, illustrator & indesign.
  4. @Old Bruce Thank you for providing more clear instructions. That solution fixed the app image problem. It also fixed the same problem on a few of my other apps as well. To every one else reading this, no further help is needed. Problem solved.
  5. I tried both options. For some reason my mac will not allow me to do the second option. Even with CMD+Delete keys. The first option doesn't work either. @Dan C
  6. For some reason, the preview icon for Affinity Photo is not correct. I move the application to the Mac OS X dock and the image is replaced with a generic finder app icon. I have attached two screen capture images to show what I mean. I even deleted the plist file and also did a fresh re-instrall from the mac app store. I do not know what to do to fix this problem.
  7. The Affinity Team has no plans to make an after effects alternative. They are strictly focusing Photo, Designer and Publisher. They may also be working an adobe Bridge alternative, but don't quote me on it. As for after effects alternatives, I know at least one open source alternative, called "Natron" If you happen to be looking for an alternative video editor as well, there is an open source software for that as well, here: "Open Shot" If you have any other questions, just tag me and I will respond back asap.
  8. Thanks @MEB for the update. I am definitely very patient with this software. I am very happy you guys decided to create the Affinity software trio. Many graphic designers and illustrators (myself included) are jumping for joy that we won't have to rely on Adobe anymore, especially when you guys belt out features that bring us closer to breaking the Adobe monopoly. Keep the hard work and earning more awards for your software. Well worth all the hard work you guys do for us.
  9. @Patrick Connor Thank you Affinity Team for creating a strong graphic design trio competitor to adobe creative cloud. i am going through the tutorials for Publisher and love how simple they all are to follow. This UI is way better than InDesign. I was college for graphic design before you guys were able to launch the retail version of Affinity Designer and Photo. The software classes I was taking didn't help to simplify taking on the adobe creative suite, at least the portion I would be using the most. Your UI's are way better organized and I didn't have an artistic heart attack looking at them. Thank you for all your efforts, you are making this creative very happy with your work. I love being a multi-disciplinarian and your software will allow me to do that without UI shock.
  10. Thank you MEB, didn't know that was what I needed to do. Thanks for the help.
  11. For some reason the brush cursor shows a square brush with rounded corners. How do I change that back to a rounded brush with no square sides? I tried using google to find the answer, and only got photoshop help files and nothing else related to this problem.
  12. Definitely eager to see the APub Beta. I would definitely want to not have to rely on Adobe Subscription Software. Adobe has outsourced way too freaking much of their business. The Serif crew work together like an actual team. Adobe staff compete with each other causing all manner of irritation. Thank you Serif for creating a trio of true competitors to the Adobe majority monopoly. As a freelancer I will definitely have more control over which software I use. Your software is a very warm welcome, especially for me starting out and building my artistic skills with digital painting and creating. If any one asks, no I do not have a portfolio of work to share (yet!). I am using the free time I have to build up my concept art/illustration skills so I could (in say 2 - 3 years) start going full time in the creative field.
  13. I know I am late to the party on automation, but I would like to thank Serif for including javascript in a further future release. However, automation is still new to me. I just started learning AppleScript and (even though I can be a quick study) it is a pain sometimes since I am working with a heavily outdated AppleScript textbook made by apple and near complete lack of updated resources in the public domain. Even though I now know a wide range of modern mac-native apps have an AppleScript library to work with, even the popular note taking app Evernote. I am glad that javascript is the more widely used and documented scripting language there is and it seems to be more structurally straightforward than than the english-like apple script.
  14. Even though it will be hobby, I do intend to be a multimedia powerhouse on an iMac Pro, with Affinity Trio being for digital art and graphic design work. 5 to 10 years ago, trying to be a one man multimedia production was way out of most price ranges. From my earliest childhood memories to now, the cost for quality software and hardware has dropped precipitously. I immensely grateful Serif decided to launch the Affinity software lab to create these applications.
