  1. No, the recap is wrong. The new instance of the issue is on a completely fresh installation of Windows. Then I installed Photo and Designer from the MS Store and Publisher from the EXE installer. All for the very first time. No uninstallation before that. The installation path was empty. Update: I tried it again and now the path was already there. So this is not even reproducible. On a fresh Windows with no Affinity settings restored from the old installation. Happy bug hunting. 😞
  2. Maybe it's a problem with MS Store apps? I installed Photo and Designer before through the Store, then Publisher with the installer (because I only have that in this form and Store apps need to be paid separately).
  3. Add a fresh installation of Windows 10 2004 to that. And it's annoying, still! This path must never be empty in the setup. If for any reason it is, then please change your code so that it uses the default.
  4. I think I asked that already. Forgot the answer. What's the suggested installation directory I should enter in this empty box? I just downloaded Affinity Publisher 1.8.4 for Windows to install in on a fresh Windows 10 2004 x64. Usually the setup presets the installation folder, but Affinity wants me to tell it.
  5. Steps to reproduce: Open developer persona Make sure you have at least two preset saved that you can distinguish by their settings Select one preset as you always do Move the mouse pointer over that dropdown list and press the left button (the dropdown opens) Keep the button pressed and drag the pointer down to the other preset, only then release the button Actual result: The dropdown list shows the selected name, but the preset has not been applied at all. Expected result: The development settings should match the selected and confirmed preset. This is the behaviour of dropdown selections (ComboBox) on other platforms, including WPF. Affinity Photo 1.8.3 on Windows 10 x64 See also this bug reported in October 2017.
  6. Yes, Alt+Tab and the taskbar icon are options as well. But since Affinity is a very visual application, I tend to use the mouse to operate it. And no other application (no decent one) messes with the window title bar in this way, so I can activate a full-screen window in the background practically everywhere by pushing the cursor to the top screen edge and clicking. Anywhere, not just somewhere in the right part or other small areas that I certainly won't target for a quick window switch. Not here. I wouldn't need the 7 pixels space like in Visual Studio but 1 or 2 pixels would already be very helpful here.
  7. The menubar is placed at the very top of the application window, at least on the Windows system. When the window is in full-screen mode, there is no place to activate the window at the top edge of the screen without also opening a menu. Visual Studio 2019 moved to the same window layout but took extra care about this. The menus won't open when clicking in the top few pixels of the window/screen. This allows for easy activation of the full-screen window in the background of other windows. Could you please fix the Affinity menubar so that it also leaves a bit space at the top to activate the window?
  8. Open this image and convert the path at the top to an outline. The result looks a bit different. Affinity Designer 1.8.3 on Windows 10 x64 link-help.afdesign BTW, why is this afdesign file with just two short curves in it 500 kB big?
  9. Oh, still in development? You've had plenty of time to remove that option from the UI. What is it actually good for? I need to reduce an image to four colours, the four CGA colours to be precise (black, white, magenta, cyan). Can't find a filter to do that so I tried my luck in the export. Well, paint.net could do the job now. Almost. It could export with 4-bit colour, I needed to rework to get 2-bit.
  10. Yeah, I could try that indeed. Or just cut the paper before printing anything on it.
  11. Oops, thought I was in that forum. It's about Publisher 1.8 on Windows. Feel free to move the thread if appropriate. No real printer yet. I'm trying things out without wasting paper, with the Bullzip PDF printer. But then I can't say what printer I'm going to use. Could be several. I don't want to rely on printer settings, they tend to suck.
  12. Not sure how to describe it... I want to create a ring file of gathered information. The final format is A5 portrait. Since this is going to be a growing collection, I want to create and add new pages as I collect more information. Not everything is appended to the end, so I'll insert new sheets somewhere in the middle, too. (I know I can't print page numbers then but that's okay.) Now when getting this on paper, the printer only has A4 paper. I can print on both sides so I'd like to use the paper fully so I'll only have to cut the sheets in two halves, not crop on all 4 edges. (I accept the printer margins here.) The final work should look like this: 1st A5 sheet (portrait): front is page 1, back is page 2 2nd A5 sheet (portrait): front is page 3, back is page 4 3rd A5 sheet (portrait): front is page 5, back is page 6 4th A5 sheet (portrait): front is page 7, back is page 8 What I'd need to print to achieve the above is this: 1st A4 sheet (landscape): front is page 1 and 3, back is page 4 and 2 (sheet turned at short edge for duplex) 2nd A4 sheet (landscape): front is page 5 and 7, back is page 8 and 6 How would I have to set up my document so that I can achieve this kind of output? I'd rather have the two sides of a final sheet next to each other on the screen so it's easier to maintain them. And I'd rather not lay out the document as A4 and scale it down to 2-up at print time because I'd lose exact sizing.
  13. Not sure what to search for, so it might have been reported before. This is a very obvious and blocking bug. Draw a circle, set it to outline of sufficient stroke width, without fill. It must be a circle, not just an ellipse, to see it well. Now convert this circle object into an outline (not just a curve). What should be left is an outline of the circle stroke, filled with the original circle's stroke colour. This is necessary to apply set geometry operations on the resulting object. It can't be done with a circle object or a curve path. The expected result would be exactly that circle outline. The actual result is somehow deformed but certainly not a circle anymore. See attached image: the red part is the original circle in the back, the black "thing" in the front was converted from it. Affinity Designer 1.7.3 on Windows 10 not a circle anymore.afdesign
  14. What is that you're doing at the end to the right-end node? Why isn't just the single node moving away but the entire segment? Anyway, I've found that I have to deselect the entire circle and can then select each half again. It isn't visible that the line has been broken before the selection is redone.
