  1. This is good news. Just yesterday I thought I'd give AP another try within my usual image editing workflow, but got completely stuck at something as trivial as cropping. Seriously: The current cropping concept is one of most counterintuitive workflows I've ever encountered in any professional Mac software. (Disclosure: Frankly, as a Mac user since 30 years I have absolutely no idea how counterintuitive Windows software can be…)
  2. From what I can say so far, it's an OS issue: • No offer to be seen on Mac OS X 10.8.5. Mountain Lion. • Once I have booted the Mac from a macOS Sierra partition, the offer was there right away. So the culprit is possibly WebKit? WebKit on Mountain Lion is pretty much broken nowadays, due to lack of TLS 1.2 support.
  3. The lack of those vector effect features is the main reason why I still end up doing all work in Illustrator (CS5, for the record), usually after wasting hours of my time attempting to figure out how to achieve this in AD. :/

    Macros work, but with issues

    Thanks for confirming that it's actually supposed to work. At first I thought it's not even possible to rename them. That is: using the Control key actually doesn't work for me at all. What does work every time is tapping with two fingers on the MacBook trackpad to simulate a right click. Yeah. Not only that, actually I want to be able to save the complete Batch Output section: the destination, the format, the format settings, the applied macros. The basic idea is all there. Why stop on half of the way? My experience with Affinity Photo so far is that every time I attempt to replicate anything from my usual Photoshop workflows (I started with PS 2.5 over 20 years ago, working with CS5.5 these days), I get stuck about half the way through, waste about an hour, give up, and return to Photoshop to have it all done within a few minutes… :/
  5. D'oh, I am, obviously: The Export Selected check box in the palette must be enabled to edit an existing slice. Not very intuitive, but the "non-editable" problem solved as it seems… Still, linked slices not being automatically moved with artboards smells like a bug to me anyway.
  6. Well, not always. Probably a bug: 1) I have created several artboards in Designer, then in Photo I added various pixel layers, created linked slices and exported. 2) A couple of weeks later, I added another artboard in Designer while rearranging the older artboards. Again added more pixel layers in Photo. In the Export Persona though, the slices remained at their original absolute positions, either on different artboards or completely outside. When I select them in the Slices palette, they are not editable. I can only create new ones. Or am I missing something?
  7. No, I was asking about the upcoming versions 1.5 of Photo and Designer as discussed in this thread. (My personal reason: On the one hand more and more updated apps out there are dropping support for 10.8.5 in general which is a bit unfortunate, because on the other hand more and more audio hardware manufacturers are dropping driver support for current versions of OS X, making me stuck with 10.8.5 and a bunch of at their time quite expensive but still perfectly working audio interfaces…) ~~~ But… à propos Publisher: any news on the release date…? :)
  8. How about system requirements? Will OS X 10.8.5 still be supported?
  9. In the meantime I've noticed this is the same issue as also posted here: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/15915-layers-problem-in-affinity-designer-after-upgrade/
  10. In the meantime I've figured out a temporary workaround: Nested layers can be expanded via context menu. Once expanded, the expand triangle becomes visible. Eventually if all layers/artboards are collapsed though, the triangles will disappear again.
  11. Nested layers and artboards with layers cannot be opened and viewed in the Layers palette. There is the circle where the opening triangle should be, but clicking it only selects the layer/artboard. The triangle is apparently still there, hidden and unclickable under the "Enable/Disable Layer" check mark at the right edge of the palette. If there are two or more artboards, no layers are visible at all, only the artboards, again with the empty circle and the barely visible triangles under the check mark. The bug is present both in AD and AP 1.4 on OS X 10.8.5. (No newer OS X installed and no plans to upgrade anytime soon.)
