  1. I have a Affinity Publisher document with just one word inside. When selecting Export > PDF, Publishers crashes instantly during the calculation of the size of the document. This is with ALL actual Affinity programs, like Photo and Designer. I also tried the actual Publisher Beta and got the same results. As some side information, there is one font inside especially one special style hat produces this error. The font creates no trouble when I just use Mac TextEdit or Adobe InDesign and create a PDF out of it. I already informed the type foundry about the problem with the font so that they can check about. Anyway, if there is something with the font, it would be a good idea, if Affinity would print out an error or something and don’t crash, because it was a lot of work to find out, what exactly triggered the crash. :-) I attached the crash report. I really would like to attach the AP document here and also the font, but the license of the font restricts it to give it away. :-( Affinity Crash Report.txt
  2. I have a problem concerning the export of PNGs out of Affinity Photo 1.4.3 AND ALSO 1.5.0 RC. As a basic, I have a photo similar to a bitmap with just the color black and a transparent background. The file is RGB 8-bit color mode and I export as PNG-24. The exported file looks good so far. It looks good in a browser and also in Apples Preview. So far so good. I know, Serif can’t take responsibly for external apps, but I have problems in two different apps with exported PNGs from Affinity Photo. One is the coding language Processing, where PNGs from Affinity Photo not display at all and the other is Photo Mechanic 5, a image browser, who displays the PNG in a strange way (blue with a black background). Please see the attached example "affinitypng.png". I opened the exported PNG from Affinity Photo into Photoshop and exported again as PNG 24-bit. The resulting PNG displays fine, no problems in Photo Mechanic 5 nor in Processing. So, I was wondering, what kind of 24-bit PNG Affinity Photo exports, or if there is a special format or anything? Since I only have problems with PNGs coming from Affinity Photo there must be something inside the file, that makes problems. Attached are also both PNGs, Affinity Photo troublemaker and the working Photoshop PNG. Thanks in advance, Thomas
  3. In Affinity Photo (1.4.2) when resizing a document with Document > Resize Document… it would be of great help if the Resample option would ether remind the last set option or be set to Bicubic or Lanczos as standard and not „Nearest Neighbor”. Maybe I’m wrong, but most of the people using Affinity Photo work on photos where „Nearest Neighbor” is the baddest of all resample algorithm. :-)
  4. Hello, for the sake of usability It should be possible to create a guideline not just by dragging it out of a ruler with the Move/Node-Tool but also with every other tool. Say, I use the rectangle tool and when the mouse pointer is over a ruler, the pointer should automatically switch to the Move tool (as long as it is over the ruler), then I just can drag out a new guideline. I often need guides for my work and it would help the work flow a lot. This would be a killer feature! Thanks, Chucky
  5. In Affinity Designer (1.4) it is possible to convert a global color to a spot color. So far so good, but how do I convert a spot color back to it’s normal state, to a non-spot color? You can edit the color, but not it’s state of being a solid color or not. I know that you can "honor spot colors" when you export to a PDF for print, but sometimes it’s important to convert a spot color to a non-spot color when you just want some colors to be spot colors when you export a PDF for printing. Thanks in advance for all tips and hints.
