  1. In Affinity Photo you always see a pixel preview of your design, even if you are working with a vector object. If the vector object (in this case your rectangle shape) is not alligned exactly to a pixel level you will see the rendering of 'a fraction of a pixel' which displays transperent. Make sure the dimensions of your rectangle are exact pixels and the X and Y coordinates are exact numbers of pixels. You would look at the transform panel to check these values. Also make sure your border width is full pixels wide and is aligned to either inner or outer. d.
  2. Hello @Aharon, you might look into IAMRENSI's brush pack that was linked above: https://academy.iamrensi.com/p/ultimate-brush-bundle-v3 At the middle of the page you see an overview of the brushes included. At the bottom of the page you see a detailed list of what you get with the bundle. The good thing is, these brushes are explicitly built to work with Affinity Photo. I just did not use them so I can't comment on their quality. d.
  3. This is what I see on my Windows help page, too. But in the screenshot by the O.P. this icon is missing on a Mac. d.
  4. Hello @Cathy Lewis, from your screenshot I can tell that you are in Designer's 'Designer Persona'. You first have to switch to the 'Pixel Persona' (second icon from left). There you will find the Eraser. d.
  5. I want to suggest that you make sure the software does what you are expecting or have on mind. We've seen several users buying without first checking if a certain feature is available and then were badly dissapointed when they found out that something is not possible with the Affinity apps. Vectorization comes to mind or a blend feature (both not available yet). As @Alfred points out there is quite some time until the middle of August. d.
  6. This, of course, is something I did not test. It should be easy to test. Just create a ridiculously long string of page numbers and paste it into the print dialogue. Then print it to PDF and see what you get. d.
  7. Hi @Old Bruce, basically this is the same idea that I mentioned above. I myself just don't know Python 😉 That's why I suggested a spreadsheet to prepare the CSV. The idea is: configure the input, use data merge, create a PDF (or print job) as the output. d.
  8. Hello @primusvolta and welcome to the forum. there is a hidden way to do what you want. In the Print dialogue there is a field called 'Pages'. There you can specify which pages you want to print and you can specify single pages multiple times. You would type in something like this: 1,1,1,5,10,10,20,20,20,20,20,20,20,23,23,29 Try this first with a PDF and see if this works for you. Of course this is more of a workaround than a real solution. But it should be relatively simple to set up a spreadsheet where you type in the required numbers of pages. The spreadsheet then calculates the string. Then you copy and past into the field mentioned above. Another way to accomplish this would be to use data merge. There you would first create a spreadsheet with all field contents. Labels that need to be repeated are represented by multiple lines. Once you merge this data in APub you create a PDF with only the labels you need for this particular 'mixed' print job. This is a different of setup but with a little experimentation this could be real powerful. I hope this helps. d.
  9. I think Xara Designer does offer this functionality and it is in regard to design and photo manipulation in a similar domain as Affinity Designer. Actually I left Xara behind some years ago because I did not like their license model. But perhaps it is worth a try for you. d.
  10. Hello @Alberto Poli, Affinity Publisher (APub) currently supports only spreads with a maximum of two facing pages. It was recently mentioned that Serif is working on this to allow more than two pages per spread. At the moment you can achieve this by setting up your layout on single pages and mark the various sections with guides or various other design helps. This was recently discussed e.g. in this thread with a couple of examples: d.
  11. Hello @Aries24 and welcome to the forum. Affinity Publisher allows you to assign links (e.g. internet URLs) to basically every object. Not just to text but also e.g. to rectangles or elipses. You then can export as PDF and clicking on these links will open a page in a browser. What you cannot do is to export to HTML. What you also cannot do is create an hover effect. E.g. a rectangle will not change its colour or transparency when hovering with a mouse over it. In this regard Affinity Publisher is not a complete replacement to Fireworks. And I assume these features will not show up anytime soon. d.
