  1. I scanned some negatives using an Epson perfection v700.  The negatives are black and white 120mm images.  When I try to open the tiff file created by the Epson scan software, Affinity Photo V1.7.3 immediately crashes.  The log file shows that Thread 2 crashed.  Attached is the log file and the tiff image file that caused the app to crash, as well as a screen capture of the info on the tiff file.

    I've repeated this crash with multiple tiff files.

    Welcome to the Serif Affinity forums :) 

    Sorry, I am unclear what terrible developmental oversight have we actually missed in your opinion .This thread was last posted to in November but the inline and pinned images/objects feature has been in the beta since 26 April, most people who tried this feature think it does what they need. You still have time before we launch Affinity Publisher to waste your time playing with try the Free Affinity Publisher beta on MacOS or Windows and see if it is suitable for you.

    And it works brilliantly....High five to the Serif team!!!

    In these forum pages, I have noticed lots of good proposals being 'torn down' by others for no good reason, almost before they had the chance to see the light of day. 


    I've been reading and commenting on this forum for a while now and I haven't really seen too many negative responses.  I can't say I've read every topic, but for the ones I've participated in, the responses have been supportive and sometimes very funny.  The responses from the Serif staff may be short in some cases, but I think that's due to the very large volume of comments posted for this beta.  The advanced members and the moderators who reply are always thoughtful and well written.  Even the "this feature is vital to my workflow and it's inexcusable that it's not already in the application..." type comments are met with calm, well-reasoned responses.  

    I think @walt.farrell deserves the House Cup for all of the great responses he makes. His current count of postings is 5,037.  Walt--do you eat or sleep?

  4. I look at this from a workflow perspective. In my workflow, the DAM tool is at the heart of managing the images from a photo shoot.  

    My workflow:

    1. Ingest images from cards
    2. apply keywords to images as they are being ingested
    3. Conduct first-level sorting, review, and selection of images
    4. Apply raw processing changes (for example, synchronizing white balance, noise reduction, sharpening, etc.)
    5. Begin adjusting the reduced set of images to get to a final state.  This includes sending the images to other applications, like Affinity Photo, Nik Collection, etc and then having them return to the DAM tool.
    6. Making final selections and exporting images for the client to review.

    Having another Affinity tool to manage this workflow would be outstanding.  

  5. I believe this is how it's designed.    I tried to recreate your scenario.  I have thee pages in my flow.  Page 1 starts out blank, page 2 has the image placed on it in behind the text frame, and page 3 is blank.  All three have a text frame on them.  When I try to auto-connect the frames, a new page, Page 4 is created and text skips over pages 2 and 3 and onto page 4.  If I disconnect the autoflow and then reconnect it, a new page, Page 5 is created skipping over pages 2, 3, and 4.  Disconnecting and auto-connecting continue the progression of adding new pages after the existing pages. 

    I also tried just having the two pages: Blank Page 1 and Page 2 with an image on it.  When I make the auto-connect, a new page 3 is created after Page 2.  I believe the assumption is that you placed those two pages (2 and 3) and new text should appear after them.  If you want a new auto-connected page, use the Add Page function to create a new page after Page 1. Then manually connect the flow to the new page 2.

  6. Welcome to the Affinity forum.  I'm not sure I follow your comment about the art boards.   You can change the interface into a light version by opening the application preferences and changing the User Interface preference settings.  That dialog box will also let you change the color of the art board background. In the screen capture below, I've set the UI to the Light format, I like it better when working on Publisher.  You an also use the sliders to adjust the background gray level and the art board gray level.

    I'm also not sure exactly what you mean about the art boards themselves.  If you mean that you use the area outside of the page/art board to place notes and other items, you can go to the View > View mode> Clip to Canvas to toggle being able to place items outside of the page boundary. 

    Hope this helps.

    Therefore, we would recommend you to re-think about the way Affinity uses embedded fonts in PDF. Your software should not, in our opinion, consider legality, law-abiding or morality of users' intention. Your software should have characteristics of a desktop publishing or vector editing software only.
    I hope that you will evaluate your approach to this issue.

    @myname PaulEC was referring to this statement in your original posting.  If I'm reading your words correctly, you are asking the Affinity team to allow their users to knowingly violate the licensing agreement for the fonts by embedding them in the PDF.  In a similar vein, would you look the other way if I sent you Beethoven's 5th symphony, changed it's name, and claimed that I had written it?  After all, you shouldn't consider legality, law-abiding or the morality of the user's intentions either.

  8. On the Mac, the guides on page 2 don't have the ruler indicators for either vertical or horizontal guides.  I also saw that the first time I pulled the vertical guide out of the rule, the entire guide was not visible, even though I could see the numbers in the Guide Manager window changing.  When I released the mouse button, the guide appeared.  I couldn't get it to repeat that behavior when pulling a new guide out.  But it does repeat if you remove all guides, put a guide on Page 1, then put a new guide on page 2

    Thanks for the report. Unfortunately this snuck in in the last couple of updates. I understand we have a fix now you should see soon.

    @AdamW, There's a conversation on the Discussion section about a similar issue with the Guides.  The indicator in the ruler does not appear when moving the guides on the page, but also, on Page 2, the values shown are negative.  Based on the comments, this is a common issue to both Mac and Windows.
