  1. Thanks @MEB I’ll check it out when I’m back on my laptop.
  2. Hi @Modavated and welcome! This works for me: After you've resized your canvas, make sure you have a Transparent Background: Then go to File - Export. Choose a format that supports transparency (such as .png) and make sure Whole Document is selected: This gives me a .png file 1000x1000, with transparency down the sides: Hope this helps! H
  3. Hi @Noddy and welcome to the Forums! Do you mean the Navigator panel? This one: If so, go to View - Studio and make sure Navigator is selected. If it is, and you can't see it on screen, then it may be nested beside other panels like this: Click the word Navigator to make it visible. If all else fails, go to View - Studio and choose Reset Studio. That should make Navigator visible in the lowest nest of panels. Cheers, H
  4. Hi @CanTex and welcome! This is a support forum for Serif's Affinity products, not SnapSeed. Hope you find what you're looking for! Cheers, H
  5. Hi @Jeff B and welcome to the Forums! This isn't possible. You would need to buy a new Windows licence of the software for your PC. Cheers, H
  6. When I use a Gradient Overlay (or a Brush Overlay) in Develop Persona, the Clarity adjustment slider under Enhance becomes unavailable. It is available when editing the master: I noticed this just now in Cheers, H
  7. Well it's not an Affinity solution @ELBeavers, but I can offer you an Automator application that will quickly batch resize image files to 2000px on the longest dimension, keeping the other dimension in proportion, and setting the resolution to 72dpi. dm me if you're interested. Cheers, H
  8. Without a link to the video it's hard to know what you're trying to follow, but this works for me: Flow in the text. Use the Place Image tool to choose and drop the image onto the page. Use the Move tool to resize the image and place it over the text frame in the position you want it. Do not select the text insertion point. Stick with the Move tool and keep the image selected. Pull down the Layer menu and choose Inline in Text. Your image layer should now be nested in the text frame layer, and will move as you edit the text.
  9. But you can use spreads in Publisher and export as single-page PDFs. See @walt.farrell's post If you really want to work in single pages it will be more complex. You would need to set up left and right masters. The bleed setup will be the same as in my original screen shots (as bleed is document-based) but you'll need to go through your document making sure the right master is applied to odd-numbered pages and the left master is applied to even-numbered pages. I would honestly work with spreads and export as single pages.
  10. If you want to submit a bug @cayenne then there's a dedicated area here.
  11. I don't know if it's relevant but they're not the same image. In the Photoshop version the grey catches are retracted. In the Affinity Photo versions they're extended. You might care to upload your original images to see if anyone can help. Cheers H
  12. Hi @Robert Williams and welcome to the forums! You shouldn't need two masters if you're working with spreads. Check your bleed settings in File - Document Setup: You will need to click the chain icon to set different values. Set Inner to 0 and Outer, Top and Bottom to your bleed dimension: it should sort your binding edge on both left and right pages. Here's my spread, extended to bleed: Test an export on a single page to PDF - I've exported a left, which bleeds to the left, top and bottom but only goes to the trim edge on the right: Cheers, H
  13. @ELBeavers Mac or PC? There's no easy way to automate this in Photo because we can't use conditionals to distinguish between landscape and portrait. I can think of options in macOS.
  14. @Camry Hi mate please don't type in ALL CAPS because it's like shouting and it makes it hard to read.
  15. Running Catalina (10.15) I can see the blue borders in Light UI mode but not in Dark UI, which is what the OP was using: The light borders in Dark UI don't change when the tools are selected. “If Only You Knew The Power Of The Dark Side...”
  16. They're there, but they're nested together and the names are abbreviated: Ad is Adjustment, St is Stock, FX is Effects etc. As @walt.farrell says, View - Studio - Reset Studio should put them in the default order.
  17. And the one in the Status indicator - but only with short filenames
  18. Hi @dchristman I really hope I'm not stating the obvious, but after you've clicked one of these tools, do you then draw out a shape? They don't work "instantaneously" like the Place Picture tool, and sometimes when using the dark interface option it can be a bit hard to detect that they've been clicked. Screen Recording 2020-02-22 at 08.23.37.mov Again, sorry if you've already tried this.
  19. Affinity Publisher has no concept of 'chapters'. The nearest concept is Sections, which can be accessed from the Section Manager in the Pages panel. I'll stick my neck out here and say that if I were creating a full-sized book, I would break up the text into chapter-sized chunks in my writing program (word processor, Scrivener, whatever),before importing them separately into Publisher, possibly matching the chapters to the sections. That would give me chapter breaks based on page numbers, and if for any reason I wanted to delete a chapter of more from the Publisher document, I could select and delete the relevant pages en bloc from the Pages panel. The thought of managing a full-sized book as one continuous text flow gives me the absolute whim-whams.
  20. That's bad news. I don't know what to suggest - maybe Apple Support?
  21. Confirmed @MEB, looks to be working fine in Best, H
  22. Yup, that works with quite a few of Apple's own apps - including Pages, Numbers and Keynote - via the Insert menu. Cat in a spreadsheet:
