  1. Carl123, thank you for the information. I did not know that. This is a program failure. Once I deleted the image, the program should delete the snapshot when saving.
  2. Carl123, I never create snapshots, for nothing! I'll check if the program creates on its own.
  3. Carl123, I always start my projects with Affinity Publisher, as it allows me to go directly to Affinity Photo and Affinity Designer without having to change programs. I will pay more attention to this snapshot. Thank you very much.
  4. Sorry. I did Ctrl+C / Ctrl+V in Google Translator. I do not understand English!
  5. Hello, guys at Serif. I would very much like this post to be read by the Affinity programmers. Before proceeding, please download this file: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1Mg7GLmxeihpIWuNmpbMt7_Az8TKLvuwO/view?usp=sharing I have noticed, since many versions ago, that Affinity (all, Photo, Designer and Publisher) never delete the information of deleted objects after saving. Let me explain in detail. I have a document full of bitmaps for my contractor to choose the best version. After choosing, I delete the unused bitmaps and save the file, but the size of the saved file does not decrease. The information about the deleted objects is inaccessible to me, but even if I have deleted them, they still occupy space in bytes in the saved file. This problem accompanies the products of the Affinity line since the first version. I sent sample files. The download link is above. The file 01 Certificate.afpub, 157,607,759 bytes, is a A4 300DPI with lots of bitmaps. Is a very huge file. The file 02 Opening.afpub, 163,838,875 bytes, is an adapted version of 01 with some objects excluded. I just added the background. Despite having deleted data, the size in bytes is larger than version 01, which is very strange! Then, I deleted everything but the background and added 7 vector objects and saved the file with the name 03 7 boxes.afpub. The file size in bytes should have decreased dramatically. But that is not what happened. Inexplicably the file size was being 144,508,567 bytes. This is a tremendous absurd BUG! To try to get around the problem, I grouped everything in document 03 into one group, I copied it and I created a new document from clipboard. I saved the new document as 04 Copied and Pasted from 7 boxes.afpub, with only 1,500,625 bytes! Document 04 is an identical replica of document 03. The only difference is the size in bytes. "Save history with document" is disabled. So, that is not the source of the problem. The cause of the problem is this: I have already reported this problem on other occasions, but it have fallen into blind eyes and deaf ears! I hope this time will be solved.
  6. Hello. I have the 3 products, Affinity Designer, Photo and Publisher. I request the feature "Resource Manager" for Designer and Photo too, like Publisher. This is possible? For now, is impossible for Designer and Photo to set a object as linked to an external file.
  7. Hello. I have a folder with hundreds sequential numbered PNG files, 1920x1080 pixels. I need to joint them into a single PDF. one image each page. Does exist a way to do this with Affinity Publisher? If does not have, this is a good suggestion to improvements!
  8. Mark Ingram, if I do Replace Document for a selected object named "(Embedded document)", AD & AP freezes too!
  9. Hello, guys at Serif. Affinity Photo and Affinity Designer freezes at file/place. No mater if source file is RGB or CMYK. Both programs simply stop to work after I do File / Place. What I ask here, and what many people have already asked for, for God's sake, add the File / Link function ... So, if I update the linked source file, it will automatically update the file that contains the link. To reproduce the BUG again 1. Start Affinity Photo Beta or Designer Beta 2. Create any document with anything and save it. 3. Close the program and open it again 4. Create a new document 5. Do File / Place... Please Serif people, I'd really like you to fix the bugs without ruining what's working well. To be placed.afdesign To be placed.afphoto To be placed rgb.afdesign
  10. 4Likes, I meant to apply brushes on a path outline. I think your prints showing various uses of brushes have nothing to do with the subject of my post. Affinity Photo is UNABLE to apply brushes to a path outline, although the program interface presents this function. From the beginning, I told SERIF staff that Affinity should be a single program, without divisions in two versions, one for photo and another for graphic design only. What happened is that programmers "forgot" to remove from the interface this function that only exists in Affinity Designer. I think my Affinity days are coming to an end. Nothing I suggest is implemented. I will try other alternatives, like Xara or Gravit. If the Serif staff does not accept suggestions, why do they release Beta versions?
  11. 4Likes, unfortunately, you understood that I stated that AP does not work with brushes. That's not what I wrote! I wrote that AP can not apply brushes to a path outline. Read my post right.
  12. Hello. Today I discovered a problem in AP Beta, and found that this problem is also in the "stable" version 1.6. Affinity Photo Stroke style Texturized Line Style NEVER WORK! I can create a line with brush stroke in Affinity Designer Beta, copy it and paste it in Affinity Photo Beta. It will accept the pasted object. But does not allow to change the brush stroke. Since Affinity Photo does not accept brush stroke (Texture Line Style), this function should not even be available in the software GUI. AP Stroke work fine with Solid Line Style. AP Stroke work fine with Dash Line Style AP Stroke DOES NOT WORK with Texture Line Style. If I try do do it, the appearance is equal to Solid Line Style. I think this is a bug that should be fixed. And if this is not a function of Affinity Photo, it should really be removed from the program interface.
  13. Affinity 1.6 show Fill and Stroke options for Text Tool. Affinity 1.7 Beta shows only Fill option for text tool. This is a bug?
