  1. I did not know this was possible. I think I will stick to a tablet for now.
  2. I had no idea that the "idiotic-like-an-angry-target" icon was for adjusting pressure sensitivity with tablets. I will just stick to the "More" button. That "target" doesn't really do anything on my end nor does clicking on it reveal any panel. Thanks for showing me @Old Bruce.
  3. I can partially answer your question. Macro's are automated workflows in Affinity Photo. Using the Macro feature, you can record a series of steps (Such as Black & White adjustment to photos) that can be saved in a Macro Library for future use to eliminate, often repetitive, actions thereby saving potentially hours of time, especially when batch processing. For future reference, and for others sake to help you best, please be specific about which application you need help with regarding "Library" (which could be any library in the software) and "Macros" (which are built into Affinity
  4. I figured it out by playing with the software. Getting pressure sensitivity is on a per brush basis. With the Paint Brush Tool selected (Affinity Photo & Affinity Designer), select your appropriate pixel brush in the brush panel, next click on "More" in the context toolbar, and go to the "Dynamics" category for the brush, then: - Set size jitter to 90% (personal preference) and Flow Jitter to 50% (personal preference); set both to Pressure. Affinity Photo & Designer will remember these settings after you quit both of them and open them later. These settings are on a per brush basi
  5. Yes, I have the context toolbar active, in both Photo & Designer. Edit: The "Controller" option doesn't even show up when the Paint Brush Tool is active.
  6. I found an earlier thread discussing the topic from last year, however not of the fixes work; I tried all of them except for one solution I am having trouble with. When I have the paint brush tool active in Affinity Photo & Affinity Designer (Publisher?), the "controller" function does not even show, so I can't change the setting for it to "pressure" at all. It is like the controller function doesn't even exist. OS: MacOS 11 Big Sur (Most recent update) Affinity Trio: 1.9+ Updated Tablet: Wacom Intuos Pro Large Paper Edition (2017); Updated to most recent driver edition
  7. Rather than create a new thread with this same issue, I have decided to add my own similar trouble. I already did most of what was recommended by the staff members for fixing this issue. I am using the 1.9 Update for Affinity Photo, Designer, and Publisher. However, when I switch to the painting brush, one piece of the context toolbar doesn't show up at all; the "Controller" option in the context toolbar doesn't show up at all and so I can change the pen tablet setting to "Pressure"; so no go on this issue. Please help: All Affinity Updates are current to 1.9 series Wacom Driver is
  8. Ah Ok. Now I have learned one more way to use a search engine. That clears it up. Affinity Publisher may not have progressed far enough along for them to feel confident about starting to make the final workbook for publisher.
  9. Before asking this question, I did search the forums for any similar topics/posts and only one came up and it wasn't very informative. To the Serif crew, can you give, even a very general guess, a timeline for the Affinity Publisher workbook release date? Or at least provide some sneak peak into how far along you are in creating it? I already have the first two workbooks in my personal library. I would love to get the final workbook in the series; especially with the ground-breaking studio-link feature being included in the Affinity Publisher Workbook. I am a very patient person, I
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. @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.
  14. 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
  15. 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.
