  1. Hello everyone, I am laying out a small piece and I am attaching a screenshot of it as a currently looks. A thing I've always had trouble with and which I can't believe there is and a solution to, is the second line indent. In this instance the words resource and through theft need to be indented to a line beneath the letter Y of you above. There doesn't seem to be a way to do this that I can find but I'm sure I'm missing something. Can anyone help? Thanks very much, Phil
  2. Well, look at that! Thank you so much. But look at your Paragraph box. It's ordered differently in the beta than in the current version, I guess.
  3. That's EXACTLY what I'm looking for but How do you make that happen? I have set up my paragraph box exactly as you have and it doesn't do this at all. Can you help?
  4. Oh, I do have Publisher. I just thought that, since this has a smaller amount of text, Designer would be a better choice. I'll relay in Publisher.
  5. Am I right in thinking Designer does not have this feature?
  6. Thanks all. I meant to mention I'm in Designer though I could switch if necessary. Thanks for the proof reading. There is a large ? Underneath this whole piece which will be evident when I export. After looking at other solutions offered here. Thanks again!
  7. I used to love Actions in PS and would write them occasionally. Affinity is still so lacking in this area and I wonder what people think of this. https://www.macros.com/features5.htm I feel like I could write a series of macros to do things like changing images sizes by percentages there. What do others think? I will probably get the trial and try it. Just wondered what others thought.
  8. This is the unit that I use and which cost about 20 bucks on eBay. This wouldn't work on Affinity photo of course for the reasons you stated. I use it with Alien Skin Exposure because that does have the ability to use buttons to change all these different aspects.
  9. That's true but I'm not actually wanting to resize an image and wanting to add a border of 10 or 15% to an image.
  10. (What do you use and why do you like it? I'd be interested to know!)
  11. I use one of these though I don't use it with AP. I just use it with Alien Skin Exposure although I think I could set it up for AP. It's not great but it was cheap. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B079BTFFQN/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o09_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  12. Oof. Programming? Eeek! I run and hide.

    Save FX

    Thanks. I don't know what was going wrong but following a nice big crash Photo was feeling much refreshed and it works now.
  14. Hi all, my friend gave me a huge bunch of PSD files with FX attached to objects within. I can open the files and the objects have the relevant FX attached to the objects but I discover that there seems to be no way to save a set of FX like there is a way to save styles. Am I missing something or is there no way to do that? In PS one just hits New Style and it save the FX but in Photo it only seems to apply to fill and border and so on. Am I wrong? Thanks for any help!

    Oops. I forgot the screenshot. Having a good morning here!

    Save FX

    No, I take that back! New question. It looks as though it SHOULD save those FX but the Add From Selection button is greyed out. This is on Photo Beta but it's the same on the current version. Why can't I save this to my Styles panel? Thanks again!
  17. I know I've asked for this before but could we get it sooner rather than later? It's really important to me as it allows me to automate the addition of borders to an image. Also, could the default be to expand from the center instead of top-left as that isn't something people seem likely to want? Thanks for your consideration! Phil
  18. So I can! Thanks. That's a start but yes, macro is what I'm after.
  19. Thanks for this. I was looking for it too and figured I would thank you since you hadn't received any love before!

    Movie poster

    Just practice on my part.
  21. Hi all, I'm following through a tutorial and it's telling me to enter the levels shown in the second of the screen grabs that I'm going to attach to this. But I noticed that there are three level boxes and they do not work in percentages in the same way as Affinity Photo does. Does anyone know how I could convert these figures as shown in the tutorial into percentages so that I could match it in Photo? Thanks very much for any information you might have! Phil
  22. Oops, here's the picture.
  23. Hi, I generated the noise as in the tutorial. This is what I ended up with. I finished up using Topaz Star Effects and Lens Effects and pulled them back with transparency and Screen. Phil
  24. Ah, so it is! So I started over from the beginning and now I am just working from looking at it and adjusting channels and levels to make it work and it seems be working. I'll show you finished product when it's done! Thanks all for the help and let you know if anything else comes up.
  25. (It doesn't come with an image to use...)
