  1. Assuming your using 1.3.5… everything works fine for me.

    Add Pantone colors in Affinity Designer

    Try ColorSchemer Studio from www.colorschemer.com. It's what I use and imports and exports ASE files, as well as CLR which you can then import into Apple Colour Picker.
  5. 1) Hmm… if I understand you correctly, just uncheck the box in the bottom lefthand corner where is says Show This Panel on Startup. 2) click the Follow this Topic Button top right of this Screen. You'll get an email when someone replies to this topic.

    Add Pantone colors in Affinity Designer

    I have my Pantone swatches loaded in Apple Color Picker. They are available in Affinity Designer when you click the Color's Dropdown bar. Have to remember how to do this because it has been ages since since I did it orginally for the programme IDraw.
  7. Tried 1.2 and the Beta version. Same thing happening there as well. Should be a way to save the Preset, but can't find that option either. Must be on the Roadmap though.

    Crashing on EPS opening

    Is there a reason you exported from Indesign as EPS rather than PDF?
  9. 1) Simply export as a PDF or EPS and supply that instead of the AI file. 2) Open either PDF or EPS in Illustrator and re-save as an AI file. Of course this all depends on what effects you've done in AD.
  10. Ditched Adobe over a year ago. Using the following: Image Editing; Acorn, Pixelmator and Affinity Photo Beta — Illustration; Ivinci, Idraw and Affinity Designer — Publishing; QuarkXpress 10.5. — Web Design; Pinegrow Web Designer and BBEdit.
  11. iVinci - Vector Design has a Live Trace Tool and it's available for Mac App Store. Here's a demo on YouTube Not sure how useful this would be in a workflow though. You can't copy from IVinci into Affinity Designer and the export options are limited unless you have the professional version. UPDATE: IVINCI'S native file format is SVG so it just a matter of dragging the traced document onto the Affinity Designer Dock Icon. Note: They also have a standalone app called iTrace which exports to SVG and PDF. Slightly more expensive.
  12. Yes, everything about it. Too slow, could not move from page to page easily. Zero tolerance for apps like this. Simple PDF is the way to go.
  13. Hi Guys Could we please have it available as a PDF also? That would be much appreciated. Thanks.
