    Ah well at least I know it’s not me. Still until a fix comes along I can still use as a standalone if necessary, not that I use HDR everyday.
  2. As far as I understand the new version of CorelDraw is also now for Mac.

    Hi Kirkt Are you having any trouble with HDR Pro2. At the moment it opens up but there is no image. Maybe it's something to do with me. Everything else works just fine.

    Yeah kirkt just got the notification and bought so hopefully all will be well with the world. Thanks for posting though.

    Oh ok. Look forward to the new update in due course then. Thanks for clarification.

    HI Kirkt I'm a little confused now as I have the latest version of NiK Collection V1.1 and am running on iMac with Mojave but still cannot get passed this Fonts Updating and locking up issue. I have left a topic on the DxO forum to see what they say about the problem. I'm assuming windows uses have no problem as it appears to be an Apple code issue. I am also running the latest version 1.7.0.130 of Photo. What version of Apples software are you using? Can't get my head around how you now don't have a problem on Mac. I'm also intrigued by when you say upcoming version of Nik Collection, the latest version I know of is NiK 1.1. I don't know of any other.

    Kirkt Are you using windows or Mac because I still get font update issue with version 1.7.0.128. I just tried it. I’m on Mac.

    Hi Kirkt Did you download an up date from the DxO website or did your version update automatically, or do you mean Serif have fixed the problem with this version update? I could never ascertain from either Serif or DxO who the problem really was with. Sounds promising though, great if fixed. Thanks for the update.

    Ah great Alfred, yes of coarse. Why didn’t I think of that. It’s that question where you know the answer but you can’t quite think of it. I’ll add that to my knowledge base.

    Thanks MEB for your response. I can always use as a stand-alone for now if necessary. Hopefully it will be resolved soon. Showing my ignorance, what’s COP Red Angel? Haven’t heard that one before.

    Simple question. Has anyone managed to get DxO Nic collection to work in Photo 1.7 beta without the "updating fonts" keep popping up and locking everything up. On DxO website it appears to say they have made it more compatible with third party (Affinity) software but I'm not sure how old the info is as it shows the logo for version 1.6. I can only assume no further progress on this issue has been made between Affinity and DxO at this time.
  12. Hi Patrick I’m not sure I follow you as you said you envisaged adding tri-fold, Quad- fold and Z-Fold etc and you add ( I.e menu). I assume you mean then that you intend to add a few more presets (templates) to the existing drop down menu when choosing new. That’s not at all going to help creatives who like to decide on the the layout dimensional process. It would appear that Serif are, at least for the time being, going to concentrate on no more than bog standard design work. What you have illustrated if I have read you post correctly is a standard gate fold. I have said that creatives need freedom of expression when designing and that means being able to choose the layout to suit there vision. InDesign provides this and has done for some while. Why would any designer push to one side an established piece of software which has given them flexibility and has worked well for them for some years suddenly choose a new software which takes them back in time and restricts their creativity. From your post Patrick it comes across that Serif does not recognise or even accept that there is a need to expand the page layout tab I.e being able to shuffle pages and choose different dimensions etc (see post by Mark Oehlschlager and the illustration). In my time as a designer, I have worked on brochures, leaflets, exhibition stands, building wraps, vehicle graphics, packaging, In store displays and merchandising. I believe I am qualified to raise this issue as a genuine concern and can only hope that Serif looks again at its approach to page layout as there are a number of other posts here echoing the same thing and I’m sure there are others in the design community that will be looking closely at whether Apub is a serious option for them or not going forward into the future. Can you just confirm Patrick, is it just you that sees these posts or are they generally viewed for comment and consideration by more senior staff. I apologise if my post is a little tiresome as I know you are often all hammered from all sides but the layout tab itself needs looking at sooner rather than later, not expanding the new page layout menu. Fortunately I have CS6 so I don’t have a subscription to worry about so I can carry on with that perfectly well for the time being but I had high hopes for Apub as It is potentially a good program and it is very fast and efficient.
  13. Thomaso I don’t think I can help you much more here as if you don’t even know what “ design industry standard” means I suggest you do some research on the internet.
  14. Thomaso, I already have designer and have had since its release so I do have knowledge of it’s working. QuarkXPress, InDesign and Publisher are not dedicated vector programs although I will give you that they do handles vector. They are first and foremost page layout programs. Illustrator, CoralDraw, Affinity Designer and Freehand (now defunct) are dedicated vector programs. Why do you think the design industry standard Is either InDesign or QuarkXPress for page layout. Do you not think the design industry would have adopted your approach for page layout if that was the best way. I can see you are convinced your way is the right way and as I have said before, if it works for you, fantastic.
  15. Patrick I think you have contradicted yourself. You say no not templates. Pre determined trifold, quad folds etc as a menu are exactly that, they are called templates. You can download any of these “document models” as you call them as templates and more from any good prepress printer and in a number of formats so I can’t see what real benefits this will give to creative designers who do not need bog standards templates. Would be more helpful to follow a similar approach to InDesign and allow creatives to work their own layouts out according to their specific design needs.
