  1. Hi Dave, Dan C, Jan Tippman, TomM1 and Jupf, Thanks for all of your tests and inputs! After reading the loops, I followed the method suggested by Jupf and it works perfectly✌️ (by putting both Affinity Photo and Affinity Designer into trash "without empty trash"). Then sign out in App Store and restart my iMac (that running El Captain). The install button appear again in App Store's Purchase tab after sign in. One interesting point that happened is:- the newly installed Affinity Photo and Affinity Designer doesn't show up in the Application folder. I need to locate them and open them in App Store. Interestingly, both of them are being stored in the folder which I created in 2014 for storing the Beta installers of Affinity Designer. Thanks again for all of your help here 😉! Ecnavda
  2. Hi Dave, I am so happy to receive the email from Serif for the latest Affinity Suite 1.9 update! I had purchased Publisher directly from Serif and able to update through Serif easily by Product Key. And I facing the same problem as I purchased Designer & Photo in Apple App Store. I am not able to update both of them with the message "The iTunes Store is unable to process purchases at this time.". As I need to use Mac OS El Captain to operate some old applications daily, I cannot update my Mac OS. I would like to know if there is any member can guide us how to update Designer and Photo. Many thanks!
  3. I need a simple offset paths function (both inside and outside) in daily works too. Please include this in next program update. Thanks!
  4. Hi all, I have the same problem too. Both the Affinity designer's UI icons and Tool's texts are too small for me. It affects my progress to get familar in Affinity siute. In fact, Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop having the same problem too. It is funny that this problem carry to their update in late 2019. See the user's feedback in their forum, they still cannot completely solve the problem. The application cannot taking care with the changes in high resolution and bigger screens. Their support staff always mentioned that they will reflect these problems to their product team. Remember, this is the fundamental need of any softwares or apps (no matter which OS or displays). Especially the softwares for "designing visual". I expect that Affinity team can solve this problem nicely and react quickly. Suggested the team to review and benchmarking with Freehand and early versions of Illustrator. Give up "the complex & scary professional look" and Bring back the excellent user experience to the users. Thanks!
  5. I often use the auto trace function in Freehand platform. The auto trace result are different when I resize the jpeg image behind layer. I can control the vector tracing quality by do this for a few times until I got the best result (no. of points). In illustrator platform, the tracing result is not as good as in freehand. As Affinity Designer is a professional vector design software, please include this tool in next version. It provides a basic vector structure for user to work with (no matter the user is a professional or a student). Thanks!
  6. John77m, I just find this discussion. After several tests, I think your method is the best way to handle the old Freehand File record! All elements displayed in AD are exactly like in FH environment (and in exact same size too). Elements can grouping together and edit easily in AD. The pdf files are good for preview especially when there are too many old FH records. I don't need to rely on old CS to open my old FH record anymore. Thank you very much!
  7. Dear R C-R, Thank you! I am able to locate the box and it works very well. It definitely help me to keep my design consistence, no matter my clients needs several scale drawings.
  8. I facing the same problem as Vince42 about some element's "line thickness" didn't scale up together with to the entire group. After watching this discussion, I am able to locate the check box "Scale with object" in the Stroke panel. It solves my problem. Thanks! I would like to know how to keep the "fx effect" scale up and down accordingly? Now I need to adjust fx e.g. outer shadow or inner shadow after scale action. Which studio panel can help to keeping the constraints?
  9. P C-R, Yes, it works so well and solves my problems! Thank you very much!
  10. I always need to move the center of origin to design circular objects, and then using the origin as a point to rotate other elements around it. Right now I still spend so much time to rotate each individual elements and draw extra circles to move back the rotated elements in place to maintain accuracy. It is an essential feature located by users in the very earlier stage of the software improvement but still not able to take place after two years!
  11. It is an important feature. It enhances the accuracy "in sense of user experience".
