    Persona buttons

    Hi, Affinity has already mentioned this in the UI Overview tutorial here (https://affinity.serif.com/en-us/tutorials/publisher/desktop/video/286534324) starting at 00:27. These will be activated later on during the Publisher beta, although they didn't give a exact time for that.
  2. I was making a new document when I noticed that the option to determine what number of pages is not present. I'm not sure if anyone already mentioned this, but I think that the option to choose what number of pages to have from the start should be added. Maybe under "Facing Pages". Would be a time-saving feature, of course.
  3. Hi, First I FINALLY got the Affinity Publisher beta installed (had to turn off NET 3.5 to do so) but all is good. Second, I was working on a project when I tried to place a PDF into the project canvas, it was placed as a whole image instead of choosing pages. Adding the option to choose which pages from a PDF alongside what images would be a great feature for Affinity Publisher. This would allow for more flexibility when placing PDFs into a Publisher project.
  4. I tried those, even looked for any problems from invalid fonts (didn't anything wrong). I did send the setup log to the dropbox on that post, so unless I can find a way that works I may have to wait until the next beta update (I really don't want to, though).
  5. Hi, I tried to use the solutions mentioned but I still cannot install the Affinity Publisher beta ( I even restarted my current PC after installing the latest Windows 10 update). The screenshare below shows what happens when I try to install (I opened task manager so you can see what happens).
  6. Hi, I tried to install the Affinity Publisher beta but when I tried it would not install. I tried the troubleshooting options given on Twitter (see screenshare): but nothing worked. Also, I did try to install the latest update for Affinity Designer but now that will not install, either.

    HEIF format

    I had asked a question about Affinity supporting the HEIF format earlier (see below). Glad to see that this was moved to the Feature Requests section.
  8. I recently learned about the new upcoming image format called the High Efficiency Image File Format (or HEIF), which was mentioned in the Windows Blog (https://blogs.windows.com/windowsexperience/2018/03/16/announcing-windows-10-insider-preview-build-17123-for-fast/#OALyDY4AdhDIahYX.97). After looking into HEIF, I was wondering if Affinity was working on support for HEIF for Affinity Designer & Affinity Photo (or if support is already there). The initial impressions of HEIF look promising and might be an image format that can improve workflows. If you need details on HEIF, I've posted links below.

  10. Hi Affinity, I am enjoying the Affinity Designer Windows beta very much, but my question is for Affinity Photo. I was wondering if there are plans for Affinity Photo to support FX Home's Photokey 7 Pro, including using its plugins in AP. Is Photokey going to be supported in a future version of Affinity Photo in the near-future?
  11. Try exporting to a TIFF file. That is recognized by both Macs and PCs.
  12. Hi there, I have a question about Affinity Photo in terms of 3D graphics. Will there be support for editing 3D files in Affinity Photo in the future? And allowing for the real-time editiing of 3D files made in Cinema 4D, Maya, Blender, Daz Studio, Bryce, Poser, and Maxon? If not, this would be a great feature to have.

    Introduce Yourself

    Hi, I am a artist, graphic designer, & aspiriing illustrator from the US and I have been keeping an eye on the Affinity software since Affinity Designer was in beta, and I must admit that I do want to get the Affinity Suite. I heard about Affinity from a article on CreativeBloq that covered Affinity Designer (which was in beta at the time), and I liked it a lot. So I kept a eye on Affinity Designer from the get-go and I just love the program. Now, I plan to get the full Affinity Suite sometime in the near future.
  14. Hi, I have a question, though: are there any plans to make two new additions to the Affinity Suite? Maybe called Affinity Web (web design without coding app) and Affinity Effects (FX/VFX app)? Now, I know that after the release of Affinity Publisher (which I saw on the Affinity website), Affinity is going to be developed for other OS (such as Windows), linux, and iOS (which means that any other Affinity-based plans won't happen until those are done). But I am curious as to if Affinity Web and Affinity Effects is being considered. Keep up the great work with Affinity!
