  1. No, %appdata%etc is there but is empty. I have symlinks for both of my program files folders, so whenever some inconsiderate programmer installs software without asking (yes, that still happens in this century), it still goes to D:. But really, would it kill Serif to pop up a simple save-file window that comes with Windows and has come since Windows was running under MS DOS?
  2. Alas, Windows refuses to move the Appdata folder. And yes, I tried it, but the instructions do not work. Even if it did, no software should just download anything without first asking where to save it to. No, I did not see a blue progress bar. I just bought it two days ago, from the Affinity web site. I will test and see if I can live with the annoyance. Since there are only two sample files, I will just live without them. But I would strongly urge Serif programmers not to decide where to download files without asking. I only have 20 GB of free space on drive C: precisely because so many programmers act without asking. I am a programmer myself (started back in 1965), so I do know what I am talking about.
  3. And now, it suddenly popped this up: And that makes no sense because all it showed me was what I showed above, clearly indicating an error. It has not asked me where to save it to, either. I surely hope it does not presume I want it saved somewhere in my C: drive, because if so, I want a full refund. Any software that assumes it is OK to clutter my system disk is produced by a bunch of incompetents.
  4. A link? Where? I don’t see any link. If I click on a sample (there are two), it pops up a little cloud with a red x in the middle. If I click on it again, the pop-up disappears, but I certainly see no link to download the sample(s). Here is what it looks like at first: And here it is after I click on the Lifestyle Magazine thing: And if I click on that, it just goes back to what it looked like at first. So, how do I download a sample (and where does it save it at)?
  5. Then how about giving us the link to the videos on Vimeo instead of just hiding it in your own player (which, I am sorry to say, is horrible)?
  6. Yes, thank you. Before I only turned windows Update on and that did not help. but after you asked again, I also turned Windows Module Installer and that worked. After that I turned both off (having them on causes some problems on my system) but I was able to update Designer and it is working.
  7. Tried to upgrade Affinity Designer from 1.6.5.135 under Windows 10 to 1.7.0. It tried to install .net, which failed saying a parameter was wrong (did not say which parameter). It wouldn’t even bother me that much if the old Designer stopped popping up the message asking me if I want to download the upgrade. So, what now?
  8. OK, thanks, it was the Modules Installer. With it enbaled, I was able install .net 4.8, and then Designer 1.7.0. Thanks, everyone.
  9. I guess I’ll just have to stick with Designer 1.6. I just wish there was a way to turn off the upgrade notifications.
  10. That’s what it said. I just copied and pasted the whole thing.

  13. Windows 10 Home, version 1607, build 14393.953.
  14. This is so frustrating. When I create a new document, AD insists on managing my colors. Why? Why, why, why?! My monitor is properly calibrated and the system (Windows 10) driver manages the colors. But AD thinks I want it to manage the colors, too. So, after carefully choosing the right look, and exporting the image to SVG or other format, the result looks disastrous. Why is AD doing this? And how do I turn it off? There seems to be no way to turn it off. There is a myriad of options for a profile, but there is no do nothing option.
  15. My SVG viewer? I always view my SVG files in several viewers, including two different web browsers as well as opening the SVG in Affinity Designer. All I am asking is how do I turn your color management off. Just put the same colors into the SVG file that I have chosen for the .afdesign file.

    Typeface design (WIP)

    Ahoj, Miloš. Take a look at FontForge, which works on all current operating systems.

    I actually like the lack of details in this image. It adds to the dark mystery and sneakiness of what it portrays. It came, it abducted, it vanished. Bam! Not enough time for anyone to notice any details. Well done, tro!

    While Beta testing the Windows AD and trying to learn what it can do, I used it to design a font. This image shows some of the font: And here is the address where you can view/download the font if you so desire.

    Just to keep you updated, I have added many new symbols and have just uploaded the new version (1.0.3) at the same address.

    Yes, thank you, they were very useful, as were many other tools. For example, the shape assigned to the letter P started off as a simple square. I then placed a large vertically centered circle to the left of the center of the square. I duplicated the circle and placed the duplicate same distance to the right of the center. I selected all three shapes and had AD subtract the circles from the square. That gave me the vertical beam of the design. All I had to do next was duplicate the vertical beam, rotate it 90° and add the result to the vertical beam. The shape assigned to the letter e used the same technique, except I started with a circle instead of a square. It took me a while to figure out how to create the shape assigned to the letter T. It finally occurred to me that I had to start with two partially overlapping vertically aligned circles, add them to one path and then continue with the same technique mentioned above. AD makes it all so simple!
