    I think @gary danang probably means Publisher's Text Ruler:

    Which as far as I can see is not available in Designer.

    Not quite sure if this is what you mean, but...
    In Photo Persona, if you choose Unconstrained or Resample as the cropping mode you'll get a fine crosshair which can be used to re-draw the cropping area like this:

    Screen Recording 2021-03-04 at 12.08.00.mov  
     
    Once you've re-drawn that cropping rectangle and released the mouse/trackpad, you'll get a thicker crosshair cursor which you can use to move or resize the cropping rectangle, but not to re-draw it. 
    If you need to re-draw the cropping rectangle a second time before committing, then clicking the Reset button in the contextual toolbar:

    will bring the cropping rectangle back out to the dimensions of the image and let you repeat the process with the fine crosshair.
    If you're in Custom Ratio or Original Ratio mode, clicking Reset switches you into Unconstrained mode, which may not be ideal.

    This is for use if your images are not in the same folder as the CSV file....
    While in the Finder if you Control + Click or Right Click on one of your images you can see there is a choice to Copy it. If you hold down the Option Key that choice will change to Copy as Path Name. Then you can paste that whole path into the spreadsheet and change just the names of the indiviual files. Remember to keep the file extensions on the name.

    h_d got a reaction from Alfred in How to change background colour and colour of pencil drawing   
    Assuming you mean in Affinity Photo, here's one way.
    Add a Channel Mixer  Adjustment, choose the Green output channel and adjust the green slider until you get a pink background:

    Now add a Recolour Adjustment. Your background will change colour temporarily, but drag the Recolour Adjustment below the Channel Mixer Adjustment in the Layers panel and all should be well:
    You can now use the sliders in the Recolour Adjustment to set the colour, saturation and lightness of your illustration:

    Screen Recording 2021-03-01 at 12.41.20.mov I expect there are other ways too..

    Hi @Dan B and welcome! From the Affinity Photo menu choose My Account:
     

     
    If you bought Photo from either the Apple or the Microsoft App Stores, you'll need to create an account with Serif and register your app. This is free. If you bought Photo (macOS or Windows version) from the Serif store, you'll already have an account - the details are not necessarily the same as those you used to sign in to this forum.

    Once you've got that set up, you can download the overlays, and as @jmwellborn says, they'll be available in your Assets panel.

    h_d got a reaction from jmwellborn in Updating via Mac App store fails   
    Thing is that when you buy any software from Apple or Microsoft, you are their customer, not Serif's. Apple/MS transfer a proportion of the purchase price to Serif (minus marketing, distribution, tax...) and Serif benefit from world-wide distribution, marketing and sales networks that they couldn't hope to emulate themselves.
    But Apple and Microsoft don't pass on customer details to the software developers, so even if they wanted to (for sentimental reasons or whatever), Serif couldn't transfer your Apple/Microsoft licence key to their own store, let alone turn you into a marketing prospect.
    However, consider the case of extra content (brushes, overlays, backgrounds, macros...) 
    Serif could have gone down the road of in-app purchases from the Apple/MS stores for this,  but right now they ask for an optional registration to their own store for all the extra goodies. And this is a smart move, because it gives them direct access to customers who have bought their products from the Apple/Microsoft stores.
    For example: I bought Photo and Designer from the Apple App Store, and Publisher from the Serif Store. I thus have an account with Serif. When Photo 1.9.0 offered me free content (fog, snow, clouds etc) I logged in to my Serif account and downloaded them. Serif now know that I have Photo, even though I didn't buy it from them. And they can target their marketing accordingly.
    Prime example of British ingenuity...

    To delete your App Store copy: in Finder, go to your Applications folder, drag it to the Bin, confirm you want to delete it, and empty the Bin. Alternatively, in Launchpad, hold down on the application icon until it starts to jiggle, and then click the cross in the top left-hand corner.
    To download direct from Affinity with product key, create an account on the Affinity Store and buy it. The 'small fee' will be the current purchase price.

    If you don't need the automatic updates, you can also use File-Place to drop an Excel spreadsheet into your Publisher document. It will come in as a table which can then be formatted. As I say, there's no link back to the original spreadsheet, but the upside is that the content is still editable.

    Try it with a simple spreadsheet in a blank document.
    It works pretty well, especially if you use “Prefer Linked” in your document set-up and have “Automatically update linked resources” set in Preferences/General.
    You can also have multiple tables in the same spreadsheet and have them all automatically update, see attached video.
