  1. You should have brought it out earlier - We were waiting to complete the trio before committing to Affinity.
  2. Affinity Publisher would have been the clincher, designers using adobe - illustrator/photoshop/indesign were waiting for the final reason to move, Publisher would have been the "final solution", instead of concerting all your efforts to publisher you would have brought out "Publisher" even 1 or 2 years after the others you could have captured the whole market.
  3. If you would have released "Publisher" 1 or maximum 2 years after Designer & Photo, you could have "captured" a huge number of Adobe potential migrants, but now it is too late the "trio" does not exist, so thousands are staying with Adobe, they were nearly yours.

    Introducing... Affinity Spotlight

    We were waiting for you to produce "Publisher". We were waiting for an application that we could use instead of "InDesign" We designers, use Illustrator, Photoshop, and "Indesign" We were waiting for Serif to produce the missing link We cant leave Adobe without the substitute. Instead you produced something we don't need. My patience has ended, so I will continue to use "Indesign" and gave up waiting for the last third.

    Introducing... Affinity Spotlight

    You should have brought out affinity publisher instead. You have lost our patience. Goodbye.
  6. Most of us need the equivalent of Adobe Illustrator/photoshop/indesign. This threesome is the designers kit. The reason we considered moving to Affinity was because of the full package .It seems clear now that you are not able to produce "Publisher" INSTEAD, you are bringing out other "stuff" which is not necessary for holding on to us designers. My patience has expired, thank you very much for Affinity Designer and photo, but that was not enough, we needed an Indesign substitute. Goodbye.
  7. Why don't you consort your effort into Affinity Publisher instead of wasting time on silly projects. I have just given up waiting, thank you very much, but back to Adobe. !!!
  8. Yet another update without upgrading the crop tool. I and several others have been complaining (ever since the first Affinity Photo beta) that the crop tool lacks crucial and obvious features. None of our regular requests are ever approached. The crop tool should be comprehensive, enabling resizing according to chosen proportions, size cm or pixels etc, and dpi - all in one place at one time. There are other fully comprehensive crop tools in other apps. If you don't understand my requests - check out Photoshop crop tool for comparison. I do all my cropping in photoshop, and sometimes return to Affinity. What I need to be able to do is set the preset for 4cm x3cm at 150 dpi and then choose whatever part of the photo to crop. So many people need to set a regular size for photos at a regular resolution, being free to choose any part of photo - those professionals who need this done quickly, simply, in one go, in one tool multiple times per day, don't understand why, after so many requests, for so long, this has never been achieved, or attempted?
  9. I and some others have been requesting serious upgrading of the crop tool since beta. You said that the latest version (1.41) would be improved, but nothing has really been changed. It needs a complete overhaul with the understanding of what is necessary, Please, please, study the Photoshop crop tool (in depth).

    Paul, It would definitely be freferable that affinity develop the crop tool similarly - so we won't have to chop and change. (but I have been requeting it from day one).

    Crop tool

    Yes, This simple recurring task has been easy, direct, quick and efficient in Photoshop for many years - a similar direct one-stop solution is needed in affinity. Probably every user needs it occasionally, and many require it on multiple occasions every day. The crop tool hasn't been thoroughly thought out - It would be nice if the crop tool was to be redesigned for user comfort and workflow. So many other features in Affinity are so very advanced and considerate, this should be too.
  13. Hi, Part of my job is to crop employees portraits to a specific size and resolution (2.7cm x 3.5 cm at 150 dpi) I do it in one move with the crop tool (in Photoshop) - It is so simple - attached screenshot I have tried using Infinity photo’s crop tool, but I have to keep using Photoshop. With each update of Affinity I expect the crop tool’s capabilities to be extended, but it never happens, I have mentioned this on 3 updates, but to no avail. - I was trying to switch from Photoshop to Affinity, but because of this problem, I find myself using Photoshop for nearly all of my work. Is there any possibility that one day I will be able to do this task simply in Affinity? David

  15. After changing the dpi to 300 - the vector dimensions are reduced accordingly (e.g. business card 9x5cm becomes 2x1cm).
