  1. Hi there, I am not a technical person when it comes to purchasing a new computer, so a little help please. I am looking to purchase a new MacBook Pro 15 inch. My choices are for: one: a 2.6GHz 6-core Processor with Turbo Boost of 4.5 GHz ..... or two: a 2.3GHz 8-core Processor with Turbo Boost of 4.8GHz. From the specs outlined above one has more GHz while the other has more Cores. Question then: Will Affinity Photo, Designer and Publisher take advantage of the extra cores or the extra GHz. Affinity, thank you for your amazing products, Adobe is long gone :)
  2. Hi back, With all due respect and by the way thank you both. To firstdefence, I read that article also, but it does not answer my question. ....Which is ... " Will Affinity Photo, Designer and Publisher take advantage of the extra cores or the extra GHz.". to Dazzler. I respect your time doing the research on your computer, but still this has not really answered my question. In fairness the answer to my question should come from one of those who created the apps. cheers
  3. Hi there, Not only is developing an image very slow, I also noticed that with Metal Compute the clipping indicators do not work. When I adjust an image by opening up the exposure the image starts to become transparent. and the colour overlays are not present. After unchecking Metal compute all is ok. BTW I am now at 15 seconds on opening a RAW file from an Nikon D750 on this laptop and my Mac Desktop. After developing and committing to the Pixel Persona it is taking about the same as opening a file ... 15 seconds !!!!! Macbook Air. 13in mid 2012 1.8 GHz Intel Core i5 Intel HD graphics 4000 1536 MB
  4. BTW. High Sierra 10.13.6
  5. I have to add my findings also, I have noticed since updating to 1.7 that developing a raw file from a Nikon D750 is taking twice as long on my iMac mid 2011, 3.4 GHz i7 with 16gb of DDR3 than the previous version. After making a few alterations with the develop sliders in the Develop Persona and committing the change, its almost like the process is hanging up ready to fail prior to the file opening up in the Photo Persona. On another note. Congratulations on the Tutorials in Photo, Designer and Publisher ( I have preordered Publisher ) The tutorials are now easier to locate from the help menu, thank you great job on presentations

    page numbers

    Hi there not sure if this has been addressed ............. when I propagate page numbers the numbers only show up on even numbers, even after selecting all pages ........... I think this is a bug !!! Also, when I go to the tutorials they do not seem to be updated to the current version. Red

    page numbers

    Jmwellborn confession.....your instructions per the video are correct......and yes hard to catch........ However when adding page numbers to a 2 page spread as opposed to a single page spread would you not think that the process should automatically number all pages without the need for duplicating to the other facing pages. Evidently this is not a bug but perhaps hopefully in a future rendition of the app something that could be improved on. Thank you in advance Affinity team :) Red

    page numbers

    Hi We should not have to make workarounds after all this a Beta. I followed the instructions per the official Affinity video. So I respectively ask for an Affinity Program Person to step in on this conversation and have the matter checked. I would think that is fair to ask. Thankyou

    page numbers

    Hi Bruce, I am using "Text > Insert > Fields > Page Number " and I have applied the "Master Page Setting" ........... I am NOT using the "Fields Studio" I normally try to use the "Facing Page Setup". But I have just checked using "Single Page Setup" and that appears to working fine. Perhaps the "Facing Pages Setup" is a problem I am on a Mac using .......High Sierra version 10.13.6 thanks for your reply

    Master Pages ???

    Hi there When I watch the tutorial on creating a new document, the video gives the option of setting up a Master Page after creating the new document. In my case the Master Page is being generated automatically when creating a new document. not sure if this has been reported, thanks

    Master Pages ???

    Hi MEB, in addition I just noticed that even though I use a preset with the check mark unselected for creating Master Pages, it still defaults to generating a Master Page when using the preset

    Master Pages ???

    Hi MEB thanks for the fast reply, Where is that setting option located please, I do not see it !!!!!!
  14. Hi there When setting up a new document in the "web selection" or "photo selection" and "device selection" the check mark for the page orientation sometimes appears backward
  15. Hi there, I am completely shocked that after waiting all this time for Publisher after the initial announcement of Affinity Publisher that it is only good for physical books. The inability of Publisher not able to create links especial in a contents page is just plain nuts. I am not a huge fan of ebooks but Pdf's with working links to pages or to outside internet pages is really important. I am sorry guys you missed the boat in my opinion. I can create Pdf's with workable links in Apples "Keynote" ........... I have purchased Designer, Photo, and the two books that accompany those apps. I can not consciously spend any amount for this product when I can get the same results with "Keynote" with respect Colin

    href links

    Hi there, Not sure if this reqest falls under "Export slices previews with actual export data" ....I would like to suggest if possible the ability to add links to elements within a project destined for the web. The chance to do this would be amazing when exporting out a project as SVG. This would be a great time saver.

    crash in designer when changing colour

    thank you, hopefully a fix soon,
  18. hi there, having a problem with Affinity Designer and High Sierra. Designer crashes when I change an element to a different colour. I get the option dialog box that enables me to open the Recovery file, so I open the Recovery file but Designer still crashes when trying to change a colour. Never had this problem in El Capitan. thanks for any assistance offered

    crash in designer when changing colour

    Morning, hi MEB, I got up this morning and have received your instructions. I cleared the user data and then created a new file, added a series of preset shapes all the same default colour. Then I started changing the colours of the shapes and then that is when Designer crashed. So yes it happens with a new file. I should add that an automatic Apple crash report was sent to them. I have managed to copy that info into a pdf which I enclose. thank you for the speedy answer. red.pdf
  22. Hi there, In the develop persona there is an assistant that when clicked opens a panel with various settings. Is this covered in a tutorial and are there recommended settings. cheers

    clipping warnings

    Thank you MEB, Yes I am aware of the clipping warnings in the Levels adjustments. I hope the ideas above can be implemented in the future.

    clipping warnings

    I would like to add support to this suggestion that clipping markers be added to the PhotoPersona. In addition I would like the option to have the clipping markers on all the time. These clipping markers are valuable tools to aid those that have difficulty in seeing blown out highlights and more when making adjustments to images. Having the option to have the markers on all the time would be most welcome and one less click or clicks to speed up processing of images. PS .... I have finally dumped Adobe Lightroom CC and on a suggestion have added the Lyn app (Photo Organizer )to my computer. I wish we could have a DAM for Affinity Products
  25. Hi there, I went to the link for Affinity Designer Video Tutorials and was faced with the Vimeo interface, I have to say I am not impressed. It is a lot harder now to navigate all the wonderful video tutorials you guys take to make. Prior to this change it was one of the best layouts for navigation. This is a big oops, not happy Colin Stay the course Affinity Team, do your own thing you are better than all the others, be different, did you not start that way, you are your own success story
