  1. Would help if we knew which Mac OS you are running. That little bit of the Monitor section of the OS System preferences is like nothing I have seen so someone running the same OS as you may be able to help. Here on OS 11.7 I have tabs for Display, Colour and (shudder) Night Shift. I would think you would need to see if there is some setting in the Colour section if there is one.
  2. This sounds like you have some linked Text Frames from Page 2 to page 12 (at least page 12 if that is where you are wanting the ToC to start) Clear any Master Pages from Page 12 and make a Text Frame on the Actual Page to hold the ToC. Or, break the link from the Text Frame on Page 12 to the previous Actual Pages (Click on the upper left text flow triangle on the text frame on Page 12 then click in the middle of the text frame).
  3. Are we talking about raw Photographs? If yes then you can process one raw image and store the White Balance in a preset then apply that preset to the other 200 - 300 raw files by clicking on the preset's name in the list. If you want you can use the Macro to record the Development by using the option to have raw files developed as Embedded or Linked. Then it is a case of using a Batch process with that macro. This will only work with raw files not other formats. It is more involved so if you are using raw I'll walk you through it.
  4. You'll need a photo of the book and at least one photo of the two pages. More photos of the two pages will give a better result. The two pages should be photographed on a Black background so you can easily select the background and delete it, leaving just the white of the two pages. Now it is just a matter of having the correct layer order. I scaled and rotated the Two Pages.png image. The Book.png has a Black Background.
  5. You select the curve/shape that you have drawn and use the Colour panel to choose a fill for it. While drawing there is a checkbox on the Context toolbar which is off by default which will allow you to see the fill colour.
  6. I am just guessing but I think that the document/image has been sheered a bit. Top to the Right or Bottom to the left.
  7. No, Affinity does use the Static. Affinity does not use Variable or Colour fonts.
  8. Do they (the commercial version, not the Apple version) show up in Apple's Font Book application? Did you use Font Book to install them?
  9. Only thing I can think of is that you may have to change the Text Styles in existing Documents to use the non Apple versions in order to avoid duplicates. For Placed/Imported/Copy-Paste files you may have to use Find and Replace as well. Such a shame in that Apple used to actually care about the fonts it included in the OS. They were well thought out, now fonts seem to be included because of current fashionability.
  10. Ah, okay I see. Yes it should probably just give a "There is nothing here to be added. So just ignore this shift + click" message to the Affinity Designer. So I guess there is something missing in the code for this rare situation.
  11. Is everything Pixel aligned? Meaning the artboard(s) must be at integer Pixels for their x and y co-ordinates as well as their widths and heights.
  12. I am curious as to what you are expecting to happen. Shift + Click on the Canvas means you want to add the Canvas to the already selected Text Frames. The Canvas is not an actual item.
  13. Do you not have Text > Reapply Text Styles and or Text > Reapply Base Styles? I would think that selecting all the text (I am assuming you have linked text frames) and hitting the latter will give you what you want. Or you could search for the Paragraph Style using Find and Replace's Paragraph Style in the Find section and then in the Replace section choose the same Paragraph Style.
  14. Type U+ and the hex for the actual glyph, select from U through to the end of the hex and use Control + U to Toggle Unicode. Here is a bullet (typed using Option + Shift + 8, an asterisk) and there is the Unicode for it.
  15. Pretty sure it is deliberate, consider that a (closed) curve may have a stroke aligned to the outside. Wouldn't see this on an Artboard.
  16. Cannot ignore it/them. As [No Style] is the starting point for a lot of the functions in Group and Paragraph and Character Styles.
  17. We could also ask why Affinity Photo has vector capabilities. Text as Text for instance.
  18. Did. you have the Text Caret (the little I-beam) in the Master Page's Text Frame on the Actual Page? If you didn't then the Text you are Pasting will be pasted into a new unrelated Text Frame.
  19. The only way I know how to achieve the border on the "Artboard" is to make a shape, a rectangle that is the same size as the Artboard and give it a stroke, aligned to the inside otherwise half the width of the stroke will be lost on export.
  20. There are many things in PSD documents that Affinity cannot use/see. And there is the oft reported Cannot save Text as Text in PSD export from Photo. So I would say the Opening of the PSD file format is not anywhere near 100%. Same with the IDML opening, more problems than we know about.
  21. Use the Export Persona. You can make several different sized exports from one Slice. You can even mix the file format of on slice.
