  1. Has there been and resoluion to this issue as I am still having the same problem. None of the Affinity 2 apps run. All other Apps are working fine.
  2. Has anyone got a working solution for this issue yet? I have tried everything in this thread to the letter. They all used to work fine just the last couple on months that the problem has started.
  3. Thanks Richard I already did both of these to no avail sadly.
  4. I have the same issue on a Win 10 laptop. Windows is up to date. The machine has a reasonable spec. And all other apps (Adboe, Blackmagic, Serif Plus) open fine. The Affinity apps will not get past the Checking for Updates stage. I have tried all the workarounds here. Has anyone been successful fixing this?
  5. Yes, but not just Adobe. Black Magic, Midjourney, Wonder and many more. We work in the film industry and now jobs that would take weeks now take hours. Jobs are done so much quicker and can be invoiced sooner. Allowing us to be competitively priced and make a better income.
  6. Well for now we are making triple the money keeping us employed. I agree, many of us will be out of a job soon. But those who move with the times may keep their jobs a little bit longer.
  7. I hate to admit it. But, we have moved our studios back to Adobe. Our competition was running rings around us and we were getting left behind very quickly. With AI our workflow and creative output has tripled.
  8. Is there any update on this. It seems to still be an issue.
  9. AI is such a massive part software development now and this is the big deciding year. It is far from being limited to design software. As well as the amazing new features in Photoshop, we are seeing it creep into video editing, 3D and office software. By the end of this year we will all be using and relying on AI so much that we will wonder what we did before we had it. A good example is; Tomorrow I have a brief for a list of images I need to generate for a documentary we are working on. The list of images would normally take me a week to generate in previous projects. The ones I will make tomorrow will take a few minutes thanks to AI. AI will affect our lives in the same way as the internet did, only much quicker. If I was Serif. I would be looking for people to work with that could integrate AI into the suite. Rather than being left behind.
  10. The one in DrawPlus makes a vector fill from a part of an imported bitmap image.
  11. Just gave this a try. I thought is was going to work like the flood fill in DrawPlus but it only works on vectors.
  12. I'm finding the Ctrl > Drag Duplication a bit glitchy compared to V1. Some of the FX feature tend to lock out and not allow changes.
  13. After doing a little research. It seems that the Corel Suite also fully supports gestures and adaptive UI for touch on windows. So that is another option.
  14. I am also in a similar position with my Samsung Pro. Sadly there are no gestures supported. I have had to go back to Photoshop for now.
  15. Yes please. Many designers use Samsung and other pro level tablets.
  16. Oh and another. No improvement to Studio Link. This is a great feature but it needs finishing. It only really launches from Publisher and has limited features within personas.
  17. Having used V2 for a short time I have a few comments on the bits I have tried. PROS The startup assistant screen is better now (almost as good as the Serif Plus one) The Export preview is much better (as good as the Serif Plus one) The Layers panel seems more versatile. The style picker seems quite good but not much different to Paste FX and styles that we had before. The Shape builder is handy (also a feature from Serif Plus range) but not much different to the boolean tools we already have. Vector Warp is nice. (also a feature from Serif Plus range) Knife tool is good (also a feature from Serif Plus range) CONS No bitmap trace (also a feature from Serif Plus range) No Mesh Fill (also a feature from Serif Plus range) No gestures for touchscreen users No flood fill tool (also a feature from Serif Plus range) No Blend/Morph tool No AI tools No 3D tools No Android support I know I bang on about SerifPlus products. But they were made by this company and had many of these features over 10 years ago. I know the Affinity range is built on a new engine and has to accommodate Mac and iPad now. But we have been waiting for 8 years for Affinity to catch up with features, they and most other software have had for years. I'm hoping we see some of this appear in updates very soon.
