  1. Thanks for you reply. I understand you point. I keep the current version for now, but I might end up buying it again from the store for convenience eventually. We'll see.
  2. I participated in the betas for Affinity Photo and Designer, last year, before public launch. Back then I suggested that they should publish the apps in the Windows Store, as it would work the same way and it wouldn't even need the code to detect new versions or check license/serial codes. I understand that the Windows Store reduces the target audience, since it requires an up to date Windows 10 installation, but I suppose that is actually preferable to having to support outdated OSs (Windows 7, Vista, 8...). Back then the response I got was that the app wouldn't work in the Store
  3. Thanks @carl123. So it seems to be the way I thought at first (same document "embeded" and projected multiple times for each face). Not as "robust" as I was hoping, but this isn't a 3D app after all. Still, it would be great to have a tutorial showing how that was made. Also looks like Designer can't quite do this by itself yet and need Photo to create the embeded projection. I'll have to try that when I get some time :)
  4. Hi guys, I just saw the Affinity Designer 1.5 Overview video on YouTube ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M2CLmakKPj4&t=70s ) and it was impressive. I've been using the Windows versions of Designer and Photo since the beta started and I purchased them once released, but I'm not a professional designer and I don't know all the tricks. That overview video shows a LOT of cool tricks and features, but doesn't point anywhere for resources on how to do those things. It would be really cool if the video description pointed to articles of tutorials on how to do those things. Anyway, wh
  5. This just happened:Adobe Photoshop Elements 15 hits the Windows Store And it is even discounted (until December 1st). Here is the store link for the US market (change the location in the url if you're not in the US, like me): Adobe Photoshop Elements 15 That makes me want to see Affinity there even more. I know the Adobe "Elements" line is the consumer stuff, not the Pro, but this is just the first and Adobe already announced in a previous Microsoft event that they plan on also putting the pro stuff in the store eventually, but would start with "Elements". From what I heard (from conne
  6. Centennial doesn't "convert" the app. It just repackages it in the appx format for the Store. Depending on the software you're using to create the install package, it may already be capable of outputting the Store package (I know WixToolset and a couple of other installers are already supporting it). (I am a software developer and former Microsoft MVP for Client Dev ;) ) I understand the problem with the 30% cut, but doesn't that also happen in the iTunes Store? Microsoft may even be willing to make some kind of deal if they see this as an opportunity to promote full desktop apps in the St
  7. First of all, congratulations on the release of Affinity Designer for Windows! Now my burning question: Is there any change Designer and Photo will be published in the Windows Store? If so, what is the timeframe? I think it would be awesome to be amongst the first to publish full desktop apps in the Windows Store, specially before Adobe does it (since Photoshop was already demonstrated as a store app but has not been published there yet). I am a software developer and as far as I can tell there isn't any technical impediments for publishing it in the Store. The only things that are not
  8. @rohde, This is a regular Win32 app, not a UWP app. UWP are supported only on Windows 10 through the Store and this app is supported on Windows 7 and up. I suppose it is done in C, and that is how source code is shared. I am hoping Serif will make them (Designer and Photo) available in the Windows Store when released, since as of July it supports publishing Win32 apps (project Centennial). Microsoft already demonstrated a working version of Photoshop as a Centennial app, but it would be amazing if Serif beat them to the punch and published their apps in the Store before Adobe. It would cer
