  1. Maybe they need to update the info. I've been successfully opening and saving my files. CleanShot 2023-12-28 at 17.49.05-mobile.mp4
  2. Guess what? I upgraded my Pixelmator Pro, and guess what I discovered? It now supports opening and editing Illustrator files! That's right, we’ve hit a sweet spot where importing and exporting Photoshop and Illustrator files is totally seamless! It’s a game-changer for everyday designs, like posters, menus, or flyers. I know there are mega-advanced designs that older Photoshop versions won't touch, but that's a different story. Now, I'm wondering, do you reckon Affinity is gearing up to match these capabilities? Pixelmator Pro has set the bar high, handling these files like a champ. It's got me hopeful that Affinity will follow suit. What do you think?
  3. My good old friend @walt.farrell That has solved the problem! You've earned yet another prestigious award for your collection: 🏆
  4. It didn't work, I managed to find a temporary solution through a rather unconventional approach. By selecting the text and accessing the Designer mode to apply a 'multiply' filter to the layer, I was able to make it work. However, it's clear that this issue requires a more permanent and comprehensive solution.
  5. I am having difficulty adding a rectangle as a background in Publisher. It appears to be impossible. I have checked the settings, but something seems to be amiss. The white background behind the text is preventing me from seeing what is behind it. There might be a bug causing this issue. This situation is quite frustrating. CleanShot 2023-12-19 at 08.40.28.mp4
  6. Does this seem right? It feels a bit off, but I believe I can make use of this technique.
  7. I successfully altered the artboard background in order to clearly view the all-white logos within a variant document in my Affinity project. However, I am now faced with a dilemma when it comes to exporting the designs. While I can make the white background transparent by selecting the PNG format, the customized artboard background cannot be hidden for export. Therefore, I must revert back to setting all backgrounds as white to ensure that everything can be exported with transparency. Do you have any suggestions on how I can change the artboard background to function similarly to the default white background?
  8. Hey there, my friend! I can suggest a course of action, but just a heads-up, you'll be the one in charge of your device, not me. If you're at your wits' end, a factory reset of your iPad could be the solution to your issue. Make sure you've got your iCloud backup all squared away and your Apple ID handy before you dive in. If everything's ready, navigate to Settings > General > Reset, and start fresh with your iPad. Pop in all your details, let the factory updates run their course, then download and install only the Affinity App from the App Store. If it runs smoothly, great! But if it crashes again, it's likely a hardware issue, and your next stop should be the nearest Apple Store..
  9. Could you verify if a phone authentication code isn't required for CS5? I've been told by a seller offering a brand-new, sealed copy that it's not necessary, unlike with earlier versions. Is this correct?
  10. Regardless of its past performance, discovering the issue is my primary focus. I will proceed by adjusting the size and verifying whether the issue persists.
  11. @Sulaiman_ Please navigate to the Accessibility settings and attempt to adjust the display to a smaller scale in order to better fit your screen. Specifically, reducing the size of the text and other visual elements may resolve the display issues you are experiencing. I hope this suggestion proves helpful.
  12. I’m curious about what iPad you’re using. Please share the about tab from settings as my example.
  13. Are you the creator of the software? Your perspective appears quite personal for just a regular user. Clearly, this isn't the place to exchange ideas for enhancements or speculate on what's next for VectorStyler—this is a space dedicated to Affinity. Our focus here is on anticipating developments within Affinity, not on what other software might offer. We turn to VectorStyler merely as an alternative option, not because it surpasses Affinity. Whether you're the developer or an avid supporter of VectorStyler, that's fine, but please recognize the context of this platform before initiating in-depth discussions about an external application.
  14. Make sure to create a fresh file each time to prevent any potential issues. Many times, the files themselves can be the culprit. Let me share an example: I was using a photo editing application to enlarge an image. Without thinking, I made a duplicate of that file and unknowingly began using it for a completely different design. Soon enough, the app began to malfunction, constantly crashing and displaying glitches. It was only then that I realized that the app was struggling to keep up with the previous canvas enlargement. In a stroke of intuition, I promptly deleted the troublesome file and started afresh. Like magic, everything returned to normal and the app was once again functioning flawlessly.
  15. Apologies for the confusion; the correct spelling is Shottr. If you'd like to see it in action, the link is functional and the app itself is truly exceptional. Additionally, I did provide you with some examples of noteworthy UI/UX design, such as VectorStyler and Inkscape. I personally find VectorStyler to be a valuable tool that I use on a daily basis as a companion to my main design app. It offers unique features that are not available in Designer. Perhaps my use of the term "awful" was not the best choice of words in this context, as I understand that it may work well for you. I apologize for any confusion caused by my comment. I was solely referring to my own preference regarding the UI/UX of the app. That's all. Shall we call a truce?
  16. What version you're using? I have V2 and it's working super fine on an 2019 iPro 12.9 inches.
  17. If you don’t consider it awful, I won't contend with your perspective. I'm okay with your preference. Personally, as a designer, I prefer tools that are as pleasing to look at as they are useful for my creative work. Applications such as Inkscape and VectorStyler that share a certain design ethos don’t quite resonate with my style. But if they work for you, that's great. for example, I prefer CleanShotX over Shttr. Both do the same, maybe one is less powerful than the other, however I will pay extra just for the UI/UX design effort into the app. CleanShotX is undeniably beautiful.
  18. The video example is trying to export to an external drive. It happens also with internal drives as well.
  19. This is quite uncommon and perhaps not everyone has encountered it yet, but I have taken the initiative to record it as evidence. Whenever I try to export a file, it prevents me from saving it. To resolve this issue, I have to restart the application. Has anyone else had a similar experience? CleanShot 2023-10-30 at 11.26.17.mp4
