    I ordered the book yesterday and received it today.  Impressive service for an equally impressive tome!
     
    Thank you to everyone at Affinity!

    Delivery man turned up in between the freezer man and the Ikea man - a good morning! I do live in the centre of the universe, though, Greater Manchester :)

    Wow, that was fast. Ordered yesterday, delivered this morning. About 150 pages in. Pretty good. Noticed a few basics I hadn't tapped into yet, going over the core skills. Have learned a few things among those, also.

    My goodness! The book has arrived here too, at 2pm in Dundee. Looks fabulous! The delivery man said he would have been earlier, but he had to stop in Manchester area to deliver Sunset's first! ( joking) Thanks all :)

    PagePlus X9, in separate chapters controlled by BookPlus (which is a feature of PagePlus X9). The PDF-X3 output was sent direct to the printers with no modification.

    Please note that if you wish to place an order, the online store buying system does not know about your Affinity forum login/account.
     
    Ordering a book will create a new account, so the "Sign In" option will not know your email or password until after you have placed an order.

    Hi, I'm Hilary Hartigan, AKA sunset. I always said that when I retired I would buy a new (electric) piano. Yesterday hubby asked me which would I prefer, a piano or a Mac. Let's just say that the Mac will arrive in the next few days :) And, after working my way through Windows 3.1 to Windows 8.1.  I am going to be a complete novice with the Mac.
     
    I'm a total fan of things Serif but I really need something new as 'I'm all scrapped out' (a CraftArtist expression) and I don't want to get left behind on a Windows-Shelf. This looks different and exciting and fresh. By trade I'm a part time lecturer (computing out in the community), a self employed publisher and designer (but looking to change tack), a family history researcher and recorder (nearly finished) and a lover of logic and order. I have a head overflowing with ideas  :D and tons of ambitions  :D . I hope that I can make a useful contribution  :)

    Sunset got a reaction from Callum in Triangle Man   
    Not strictly triangles, there are a few polygons in there, too; but it was an interesting exercise, a style I've never tried before, and a good way to practice and learn some basic techniques after a long break away from graphics. Nice and easy with Designer (for Windows) and I'm not worried by any minor flaws - life's too short for perfection

    Looks great Sunset.
    There's nothing like experimenting to learn a few techniques.
    Thanks for sharing :)

    A gallery would be fab.As a Daisytrail member who is getting used to this software, I do miss not being able to see how other members are getting on with all the effects and techniques. Most of us have limited time to spend in the forum and it would be nice to be able to visit the work being done by other members without all the tedious clicking and scrolling,  :)  :)  :)  :)

    Yes.  A gallery would be great.  Most of us have limited time to spend in the forum and it would be nice to be able to visit the work being done by other members without all the tedious clicking and scrolling, especially when often the only new thing in the topic is a new comment on previously viewed work.

    I agree that it would be nice to have a more visual approach than https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/forum/10-share-your-work.

    Almost every creative app does have a gallery reachable from their website to show off the works done by it's users. Why not Affinity?
     
    If you want to browse works done by users, you have to register and check the share your work section. As a visitor i wouldn't bother tbh. This should be made easy.
     
    I browse the forum as a guest quite often, only sign in when posting, so it affects me as user as well.
     
    What do you think?

    I've updated the command centre, the computer chair is in and the Serif cat is not allowed to terrorise the mouse - well, not much, he has a watching brief, but I think he would jump down on to that desktop given half a chance and then the mouse would be terrified :)
