  1. Mac. This error persisted across several updates of MacOS (Cataline, Big Sur). Publisher is the slowest.
  2. I have a document that is one page large. Two columns of formatted text. It's a cover letter. One page. With text and hyperlinks. That's it. When I want to insert text in the middle of it, it takes 3-4 seconds to appear. Check the video below. https://www.loom.com/share/375ab17670da48cfa7ea5bac174d2b2b?sharedAppSource=personal_library The program is almost bricked for me and I consider to switch back to InDesign and never look back again. Any ideas?
  3. Hey, I second that Publisher is so slow that the entire program is unusable. Currently I have a one page (!) document with two columns of text and inserting something in the middle takes 3-5 seconds on an 8-core Mac Pro from 2019. I would call this a bricked program.
  4. I work on a CMYK file (document setting) and cannot upload the exported PDF to the printer, it's just unreasonably huge. Affinity Publisher exports a 300MB file for a 44 page brochure. I once managed to get it to 130MB somehow but now cannot find the right settings anymore. I use PDF-X1a:2001(3) with color conversion to CMYK. The images themselves in "raw" format are in total less heavy and are placed smaller in the PDF. This must be a bug.
  5. I need this feature as well. I use it often for book covers. The spine is a single page sandwiched between two of the regular pages. That way I can control the spine size easily as pages come or go during the design process. Another use: Folded covers. This just gives you precise controls, not fiddling with guides which are unreliable and error-prone.
  6. Hi, When moving assets around the canvas, the objects jump around uncontrollably and parts of the screen do not render correctly. In the video, my cursor moves slowly and smoothly (it's not recorded). The object jumps around abruptly, not matching the movement of the cursor at all. This can go as far as the object moving beyond the boundaries of the visible area of the canvas on screen. This makes Affinity Designer completely unusable to me. Reinstalling, turning snapping off, etc. do not fix this. Mac OSX 10.15.7 MacBook Pro 2019 Mid with a graphics card Radeon Pro 560X 4 GB Affinity 1.8.4. AffinityBugs.mp4
  7. Apart from the absence of object styles, this is the number 1 feature that keeps me from switching to Publisher. Please add it soon.
  8. I second that this is the nr1 request for me and a constraint when switching from InDesign. I need to control text frame style properties centrally.
  9. Hey. I want to create a systems palette for collaborators to use the CI colors in all programs. How should I proceed?
  10. Hi, almost every time I want to move a swatch into the right order in the Swatches panel, Affinity Designer crashes on MacOS 10.15.6 and Affinity Designer 1.8.4. This is a fully reproducible bug. This feature is broken.
  11. Hey, I am using Publisher to layout some diagrams as the pinning and column features are better in Publisher. To export these diagrams and name the exports, I have to always switch to Designer. This is pretty tedious. Either add slice based exporting to Publisher or let us switch pages that are viewed in Designer. Right now, to switch a page in Designer, I need to go back to Publisher, select it and then go back again, and that for every single "artboard" or page. Thanks!
  12. Hey, it is impossible to drag objects around the artboard now. I can drag and then the cursor suddenly jumps to a completely different position. See attached video. Needless to say this makes working with AD impossible as you experience this during each object drag. A major bug. Mac OS 10.15.4. AD Version 1.8.2 Bug_Moving.mov
  13. If this was the case, how would it be possible that importing colors through Sketch and Zeplin results in correct colors? Sorry, I am not a developer so I don't really understand your code or the rather technical explanation. All I see is that I have an SRGB file and colors get shifted in Keynote even when I select the exact same color profile.
  14. Hi, After 3 hours of debugging I want to share my learnings with the development team of Affinity. 1. I created a global palette in Affinity. 2. I exported this palette as a. CLR file 3. I wanted to use these brand colors in Apple Pages and Keynote so I opened this CLR file in the Mac Color Picker there. 4. I noticed that all colors have been changed and shifted. They are no longer the same colors and they no longer have the same color values. That is right. The color values in RGB have been shifted. These are not the defined colors in Affinity. 5. Typing in the values that Affinity shows manually results in the same color. 6. Exporting the colors as CLR from Sketch and Zeplin results in correct colors. It's only from Affinity Designer that colors are shifted. This must be some kind of color management issue from Affinity Designer. I have the file set to standard SRGB. How can I export the palette for global use across MacOS without color shifting?
  15. I would also like to see this. It's a pain you cannot map a shortcut to this for masking.
