    farbenfeuer got a reaction from A_B_C in Moving or deleting pages crashes the app   
    Ok ok, i found the problem. I didn't know there was a correlation, but it happened because i had master pages applied to some of the pages and later deleted those master pages when i "cleaned up". I thought when i delete master pages they would automatically get deleted on their respective pages as well, so i never thought of it, but apparently not.
    So there you go guys:
    "Affinity Publisher crashes when trying to delete pages" might have to do with you having master pages applied that you already deleted. Maybe it helps the next google searcher.

    @MEB Maybe you should log that with the Dev team or at least make it a "known bugs/issues".

    Hey Oval,
    danke für deinen Tipp. Ich weiß nur leider nicht welche das sind. Ich hab es bei zwei oder drei Seiten probiert und jedesmal crasht er. Bei anderen Files funktionierts und hab auch versucht mit nem anderen mac und publisher und auch ohne erfolg. Liegt also definitiv an der Datei. Insofern wüsste ich jetzt auch net ob der Reset was bringen würde.

    // Oval suggested to move the corrupted pages or reset the program. I told him, that i dont know which pages or part of the document are corrupted. I have tried deleting the pages with 2 different publishers on 2 different macs with the same result so the problem must lie within the document. I will proceed to try and delete all content and then see if this changes anything.

    Hi farbenfeuer,

    There is a known issue with snapping to grids as the grids can be a bit off if you've got your Display set to OpenGL. Does changing this in Preferences > Performance to Metal help?

    farbenfeuer got a reaction from Checkmate in Size adds 1px when creating slice   
    No offense guys, but i still think this is a stupid behaviour that should be fixed or changed however possible. You shouldnt have to worry or think about that stuff. I dont even wanna go there to think about how much time i lost due to having to export images at least once over again, because it messed up the dimensions and i had to go back and fix the values. Or even just the couple seconds to everytime round up the values by hand. Those add up too. Plus it feels bad to have to remember to do that...
     
    And pixel alignment is something i hardly need or use at all, so theres that...
     
    Isn't it possible for you to just - as already suggested - force the alignment just for the artboards and make it an option in the settings to change that or something? I mean i can't imagine what you would need that for anyway, but at least its an option. I dont understand why we need to have free form artboard creation anyway. Make it a set grid, that i can configure, and have new artoards align to it automatically, so i dont have to spent time doing that also.
     
    Just my 2cents again.
     
    Remember my critique still comes from a place of love.
     
    Cheers

    farbenfeuer got a reaction from arkinien in Size adds 1px when creating slice   
    Well ok, but honestly i still think it shouldnt act that way. Sure knowing why it happens helps in future, to avoid it, but for every project it is an extra step to check the positioning and rounding it up to avoid it, which i should not have to think about. Pixelgrid alignment also isn't an option cause i don't always want that to be enabled.
     
    Don't get me wrong, i'm getting its a technical thing and how the app works and all that, i'm just giving you my user experience feedback and how i ultimately feel about it. If you can change it, in my humble opinion i think you should. If you can not, i would've loved a way to know about that, without having to spend a LOT of time looking through forum posts, then writing a bug report and yadayada. 

    Think about more pro's trying to convert over from adobe like me. Even "small" things like that can be off-putting - especially if you're in a stage of "can i trust this app over adobe". You export your first document and what do you see? Your file output states a different pixel size than the one you specifically entered. As stated again and again. I'm very critical with my feedback, but mainly out of love for your product(s). I want it to be a thing, so i can have it as a thing.
     
    Ultimately though, i'm not walking the miles in your shoes. ;)
     
    Just my 2cents.

    Hi Farbenfeuer, those are optional MacOS system fonts.   You have to download them only from Font Book. I tried downloading a few and then uninstalled - they seem to be language support fonts, which is useful if you want to access those specific character sets.   Please read more here: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT206872#download

    farbenfeuer got a reaction from mwcs in Different color/colour values swatches panel and color picker   
    Still having the problem as well. It seems to happen when you set up colors in cmyk and then switch via the dropdown menu to hsl or rgb or whatever. Suddenly the colors get all funky - like extremely saturated and bright and its not just UI - the values are completely bonkers too then. 
     
    This is extremely unsettling to say the least. Again: Professionals are supposed to work with this, but if i can't trust the color values, i can't really trust the app as a whole for anything...
     
    But yeah, it has already been confirmed by the devs but yet no update for 7 months...
     
    Affinity? Cmon guys - this isnt like some minor glitch or anything. This is major and shouldn't be anything but top priority no? At least an update on the topic.

    Hey Guys,
     
    unfortunately somehow my AD is painfully slow since the update. Especially dragging stuff around or using brushes makes the app lagg for up to seconds. I was using the Beta all along but never noticed anything like that.
     
    Does anyone have a idea what it could be?

    yeah i can definitely confirm that the beta works like a charm compared to the RC. I can even have them open at the same time and go back and forth with the same file and Beta handles it with the performance i expect, while the RC just keeps lagging around for some reason.

    Thanks for your response Chris.
     
    I've to ask though: Doesn't that seem to be a severe issue, that should be top priority and even worthy of some kind of warning for users in the pro section? I mean you claim the software to be a pro-software but flawed colors/color management seems to be like a "worst-case-scenario" type of deal to me, no? I mean i'm downright baffled why this hasn't been noticed before. 
     
    I WANT Affinity to be successful, more than you can imagine! I deliberately avoided Adobe as much as i could and started to move over to Affinity almost entirely, but this thing scares the hell out of me, because that might mean i have to redo everything i did with Affinity up to this point. Not even talking about already printed products that clients may return after realising the difference.

    I furthermore now noticed something even more worrying: If you apply a swatch to an object - again take the 70/0/5/0 and look it up on the color chooser it says exactly that. But if you take the pipette of said color chooser and click the same object, you get slightly different values.
     
    It's even more worrying that noone seems to have noticed that, or gives any feedback to this topic. 
     
    I guess i will bring this now to the attention of the support... oh wait i just now realize: there seems to be no support other than this forum and apparently i have to be lucky to get recognized, or how is this working?
     
    Not trying to be unnecessarily grumpy about this, but i hope you can understand that i do get frustrated about the fact, that i have clients lined up waiting for me to tell them whats what and for that i have to know if i can rely on Affinity for my Corporate Design work, or if i have to redo everything from scratch in Illustrator/Indesign and avoid Affinity until it's fixed/changed.
     
    Looking forward to feedback, especially from Devs.

    farbenfeuer got a reaction from koehler in Support for HKS and RAL colours   
    Yeah i pretty much second that.
     
    HKS and such is pretty much Key. I'm guessing you can import them yourself, but i'm currently trying to find out, how that would go. Since i'm here, i will say though, that managing your colors should be vital. I'm talking about ways to more easy set up your standard color swatches. For example: I would like to see a way to easily add CMYK based greyscales from 0% to 100% Key. We have the grey palette, but that is 1) not cmyk and 2) awkward to use, because i dont want to switch palettes all the time. No matter what work i do, i would want to have my greys always there, plus the colors i chose based on customer Corporate Design colors and such.
     
    Well i guess its manageable with application and system palettes but it means i have to set up the cmyk greys myself for each of my clients, which is pretty time consuming.

    Hi guys,
     
    using Designer over the last couple weeks, or even month, i encountered a couple problems that i want to share:
     
    - using mousewheel to change line-height sometimes is broken and jumps ridiculous amounts, no matter what direction i scroll (not all the time, but often)
    - Often when i have multiple Artboards it seems like AD makes a weird margin line around all artboards (see screen attached)
    - i often times tried to export selection with background via right-click, he would just take the whole document instead (noticed with a specific file)
    - If you export artboards AD most times just adds a pixel to the resolution in width, height or both. This happens very often and is frustrating..
    - Copy pasting from different apps sometimes produces indents that cant be fixed manually (the indent is not represented in the panels in any way). Only deleting the part helps out.
    - I often noticed, that margins that i set up when i create a new doc are not applied. Only when the doc is created and i then add the margins it will show
    - the extra grip anchor handle thing when selecting textboxes to scale up the text sometimes doesnt show up, although i feel it should
     
    Hope you can make use of this.
     
    Cheers

    farbenfeuer got a reaction from Peterkaosa in Colour Picker picks up wrong/different color   
    Hey Guys,
     
    i was looking through google and the forums for a decent while now and couldn't find anything that relates to what i experienced:
     
    I'm having trouble with the colour picker and swatches. For example i have this business card with a green background. The CMYK reads something like 48 0 92 0, but when i use the picker on the shape it seem way brighter and more saturated and if i say it should add it to the swatches it is shown as LAB and the color is way off. I found that it also has to do with wether i set the doc to be RGB or CMYK based? I dunno its probably me, being used to PS and AI and the way things work there, but it seems to be different in AF no?
     
    Also quick sidequestion: I tried the "Add Document Palette" Thing and it just creates an empty palette although i have multiple artboards with vector shapes and illustrations on it. Any idea as to what i'm doing wrong here?
     
    Thanks for your help in advance!
     
    Cheers
