  1. Ich verwende dafür Master Match. Es ist gerade als Bundle im Abo erhältlich. Ich habe zur Software einen kurzen Post auf meiner Website. Siehe unten. I use Master Match for that. It’s currently available as subscription in a Black Friday deal. I have a short post to the software on my site. In german language. https://www.abelbeck.de/farbreferenzen-nutzen-in-affinity-photo/
  2. Really? I have to try that – maybe I didn’t realize a small difference. I will report …
  3. Yeah, I thought of that too – didn’t try it yet. But seemes a good workaround. Thank for all your suggestions 🙂
  4. 🙂 I just wanted to have some formatted snippets at hand. Think of a formatted image capture with 3 styles: An arrow (from a font), a title and some different styled information. It would be comfortable to just drag this in from a library instead of searching in the document to copy a fitting one. But the styles are copied then. Affinity doesn’t see that they are identical (not only names but also every style detail) and copies it in. Now I have these styles redundant in my document. So – this is no option. It’s just obviously not the idea of the asset library. I think what I had in mind was more a sort of clipboard with multiple objects instead of only one at a time.
  5. Yes, I think this works. It would be simplier when on deleting a style there would be an option to replace with any other existing style. Thank you all for your answers and suggestions 🙂
  6. I work on a brochure. I thought it was a good idea to have some formatted text elements as assets. But when I put them in the layout, the included text style is imported and copied so that I get more and more redundant styles. It would be great to map this style copies to the original when deleting them. Or merging all copies with the original. How could I handle this?
  7. depending on what you want to do you can directly add an outline color and width to the editable text or convert it into paths and edit the charcters there. You can use the Designer Persona for special tools.
  8. It would be very handsome to have an option to shut the preview off. It’s time consuming and often somewhat annoying. In many cases I don’t need a preview. And its also much too big IMO.
  9. When I design an interactive form I do it in Affinity Designer or Publisher and then add the fields in Acrobat Pro. When it comes to revisions it is easy to import the changed PDF into the older one – single pages or full document – and then fix some differences. This unfortunately requires Acrobat Pro which is rather costly – but it’s a tool I always need for preprint control.
  10. @DWright thanks, I did not realize that the swatches menu changes. Palettes cannot be saved then on ipad like on desktop, right? Also thanks for the help link, I should have known since I am a Affinity user since ages – but new to ipad versions which are really different to me in UI.
  11. How can I rename an unnamed colorpalette in affinity photo on ipad? And how to save it as a reusable palette? And how do I add the current color to a palette? Where can I find a manual of affinity for ipad? I looked at the tuts which are really helpful — but cannot remember if this is mentioned or where. Can anyone help?
  12. Oh yes, I used that search in webdesign for replacing a whole line of image names with a complete image and thumb path which worked fine. What I needed was the reference, but /1 didn’t work it’s \1 Thanks for your fast reply, that was helpful!
  13. Hm, das ist ja seltsam. Da muss ich mal ein wenig herumgucken. Das kann dauern. Aber ich schreibe es in meine ToDos. – Ich bin der Meinung, dass ich immer mit Absatzabstand gearbeitet habe. Korrekturen innerhalb einer Zeile habe ich wenn nötig vereinzelt mal auf Zeichenbasis zum Ausgleich einzelner speziell ausgezeichneter Wörter gemacht. Für die Korrektur ganzer Zeilen innerhalb eines Absatzes habe ich nie Verwendung gehabt – daher war mir die Abstandkorrektur auch völlig fremd.
  14. How can I reference a search result to add it in the replace field? In other apps there is & used or $ but in AP it doesn’t work like this. What is the right way? Example GREP-Search: ^.+$ Replace: & plus new text ((where & is the result string))
  15. Ah, okay, danke. Dass es grundsätzlich bei der Umwandlung von IDML-Files passiert, finde ich allerdings kontraproduktiv. (Die Übersetzung »Abstandskorrektur« finde ich auch unglücklich – ich musste erstmal im engl. Original gucken, um zu sehen, dass hiermit eine Korrektur des Zeilenabstands und nicht irgendetwas anderes gemeint ist. Aber das nur nebenbei, denn insgesamt bin ich ein glühender Anhänger der Affinity Suite 🙂
  16. Beim Konvertieren von IDML werden Stilformate mit Abstandskorrektur umgewandelt. Dies setzt den Zeilenabstand fest. Kann mir jemand sagen, wozu das eigentlich gut ist? In welchem typografischen Zusammenhang benutzt Ihr diese Funktion? When converting IDML, style formats are converted with leading override. This fixes the leading. Can anyone tell me what this is actually for? In what typographic context do you use this function? Thanks for your thoughts
  17. Ah, ok, thanks. I obviously thought deleting an app palette is different to deleting a »normal« palette. Somehow silly. 🤪
  18. Some time ago I added a palette as app palette. Now I want to delete it as a application palette. But how can I do this?
  19. Thanks all you, guys 🙂 @walt.farrell Yes, placed a cmyk logo from native .afdes with 3 colors: 1. 100k, 2. 15k and 3. 70y|100m in linked mode. Different color profiles btw. afdes & afpub. No pixels, only vectors. Original is .ai but I controlled every element. @CLC Thanks for the link. I will have a deep look into it. @Lagarto Thank you, too. I have a simple solution now with no hassle: I just exported the logo from .afdes as uncompressed EPS. This is imported without any conversion.
  20. When I import a designer Logo with 100k text into a publisher doc it is converted to mixed cmyk. 1. How can I avoid this or how to keep graphics original cmyk values? 2. And is there a documentation of color management in affinity anywhere covering print production? Thanks for any help!
  21. Great, Walt! Habits from routine with InD sometimes make blind for really simple workflows ...
  22. This one works great with a greyscale like on color checker or something similar.
  23. Thanks, Walt. Dragging doesn’t work, but I saw that shift click adds more references to make the white balance perfect. So – problem solved!!
  24. When using the white balance pipette tool in Develop Persona there is a problem with noisy images. Especially color noise makes it impossible to make a white balance with help of a grey card placed in the image. Even when using the details filter the tool will pick the original underlying pixels. A solution could be to adjust the pipette to make a middle of let’s say 3x3 or 9x9 pixels. Is it possible to adjust the tool anywhere? Or is there another way to solve this? This is relevant in reprography where you want most accurate colors by putting a color bar near the original.
