  1. All Affinity apps (Photo, Designer and Publisher) for MacOS are at version 1.7.3.
  2. On OSX this works for me... exiftool -lenstype='Venus Laowa 7.5mm f2.0' -FocalLength='7.5mm' ~/Pictures/Imports/PGX90456.rw2 -overwrite_original I don't actually possess that particular lens - I ran the command on a Panasonic .rw2 file using a different manual focus lens.
  3. Everything you could ever want to know about ExifTool is here. It's a command line utility (works in most OSs) and the learning curve is by no means shallow. It's well supported though and there's an active and helpful user forum.
  4. With the text selected and the RGB sliders visible in the Colour panel, set all the values to maximum (255). This is pure white: Alternatively you can display the CMYK sliders and set all the values to minimum (0). This is also pure white. If it appears light yellow (or any other colour) on screen, it's down to your monitor/colour profile settings. It should still print as white.
  5. View menu - Studio - Text Frame - General - Insets and adjust as required:
  6. Hi Nicole and welcome! By default it's a two-fingered tap or click on the trackpad. You can also hold down the control key and do a single click. There are other options in System Preferences - Trackpad - Point & Click:
  7. If you have two linked frames and you want to make them independent of each other but with the same content as before, then you can cut the text from frame 2, unlink, then paste the text back into frame 2. I don't think there's a quicker way.
  8. Sorry if I wasn't clear. Hopefully this shows the steps: Screen Recording 2019-12-01 at 14.27.29.mov The opacity of the ellipse layer needs to be greater than about 50% or the cmd-click won't work.
  9. It might be easier to use the Ellipse tool, possibly with a semi-opaque fill, drag the ellipse into position using the Move tool, use the drag handles to get the precise shape you want. Then Cmd-click (Mac, ??Ctrl-click for Windows??) on the Ellipse layer thumbnail to create a selection.
  10. Hi @barret.wallace and welcome! Affinity Publisher will do this - draw grid of identical circular picture frames, drag images on and they are scaled to the shortest dimension and centred on the frame, on the fly. It would be a bit more complicated in Photo or Designer.
  11. On my setup (MacOS 10.15, Aph 1.7.3), it's here:
  12. I'm not familiar with PP, but Publisher (and the other two members of the Trinity) let you create Global colours which work in the way you describe: modifying the Global colour in the Swatches panel will update text, fills, strokes which have been previously given that colour. Cheers, H
  13. MacOS 10.15 - AD 1.7.3 Opens fine for me! I don't think it can be a font issue - as far as I can see the characters have been rasterised.
  14. The only thing I can suggest is that you may have some sort of text wrapping that's "bouncing" the characters out of the frame, but without seeing the document (or at least a grab) it's hard to tell. Screen Recording 2019-11-30 at 09.03.13.mov
  15. As far as I can see, the only time Serif might remove a successful commercial product from the App Store (or indeed their own store, or the Windows store) would be when they release Version 2. At that point, if you wanted to continue using version 1.X rather than paying for an upgrade, you would have no access to an online replacement for your original software. Which brings us back to backups...
  16. I'm not sure if it is the default - no way of checking without resetting my Publisher, which I'm not keen to do Hanging punctuation goes right back to Gutenberg...
  17. It would be much better if AD. had a command to display or hide them.
  18. In the Character panel, check your settings for Optical Alignment: Set to Manual, you can control the settings for hanging punctuation. Set to None, punctuation marks will be contained within the text frame. Hope this helps!
  19. If you create a Publisher document, save it while Show Special Characters is checked in the Text menu, and then open it in Designer, it will as @walt.farrell says display special characters, which is not normally a feature of Designer . As far as I can see, the only one way to reverse the process is to close the document in Designer, re-open it in Publisher, turn off Show Special Characters and then save it again before closing. The next time you open it in Designer, the special characters will not be displayed.
  20. If I understand correctly, what @kfriis would like is the ability to create new files from a secondary click in the Dock while Affinity Photo is running, and whatever the state of its user interface. Pixelmator (even my cheapo non-pro version) does this: as do Mail and Safari. But the Affinity apps (and quite a lot of others) don't. If I'm right, it might be worth posting a request in the Feature Requests and Suggestions area of the Forum.
  21. With the iOS Assets visible, you can also pull down the menu next to Assets and choose Delete Category...
