    JamesD reacted to walt.farrell in Tables inside text frames - mandatory   
    They can be placed into text frames already. But they cannot be anchored to a specific point in the text.
    To put a table into a text frame:
    Create the text frame. Fill with text. Create a table somewhere outside the text frame. Use the Move tool to put it over the text frame where you want it. Adjust Text Wrap settings as appropriate. A similar approach can be used for images, shapes, etc. Create them, move them on  top of a text frame at an appropriate position, adjust Text Wrap settings.
    However, for all of these, if you add more text it will continue to flow around the placed object, and you cannot (at this time) keep the object positioned with any specific piece of text.

    JamesD reacted to TonyB in Option to import pages from PDF   
    When you place a PDF then you can choose the page shown on the context toolbar at the top. If you want multiple pages then you should load(File Open) the PDF into Publisher and choose the pages you want. We don't currently have a insert PDF/Affinity document that will merge multiple pages yet but we might add it later.

    Status: Release Candidate 3
    Purpose: Stability
    Requirements: None
     
    As this is a beta release, it is considered to be not suitable for production use. This means that you should not attempt to use it for commercial purposes or for any other activity that you may be adversely affected by the application failing. In addition it is worth noting that files created in Affinity Designer 1.5 cannot be opened in Affinity Photo 1.4, which means that although files created with the Windows beta can be opened in the Mac AppStore version of Designer (currently on 1.5.1) they cannot be opened in the latest Mac App Store versions Affinity Photo, instead you will need the latest macOS 1.5 beta.
     
    We hope you enjoy the latest build, and as always, if you've got any problems, please don't hesitate to post here and we'll get back to you as soon as we can. Thanks once again for your continued feedback.   If you have a general question about the software, please head over to the Questions Forum, or if you have any suggestions, please head over to the Feature Requests forum.

    Hi Nana, unfortunately no, this issue won't be fixed ahead of release. We are concentrating on fixing issues which affect the majority of users, and as far as I can tell, the number of people who will be using the application via remote desktop is going to be very small. Also, the icons only look strange when they're disabled. When the buttons become enabled, they look normal. This is actually a problem with remote desktop itself, not with our application.

    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.
