  1. Aha, I quit and reopened, suddenly they are now there but very large. I found where to make thumbnails smaller though so that seems to be working So it looks like I lost all me preferences or something
  2. After upgrading to Catalina, all my tools disppeared as did the layers navigator etc. I reinstated the tools and layers, but no layers are actually showing. Can anyone please help!
  3. When exporting to png, why would smaller dimensions cause a larger file size?
  4. OK wha happened is probably an Appstore glitch. Normally it shows updates under the updates button - but nothing there. So I searched for Affinity photo and there was an icon of aclud. I clicked on that and it updated.
  5. I got an email saying there is an update. But how do I do this please? I followed the link and it says it is done automatically if I purchased from Mac App Store but it didn't update. I went to the App Store and nothing there. Then I see this: If you’ve purchased from the Affinity Store—each time you start the software it will check for updates and offer any available update, or in the application main menu there is an option Check for Updates. But nothing in the menu (but I'm not sure what is meant by main menu???? Is this it? Nothing there about updates
  6. Thanks, everyone - I had suspected as much having experimented and poked around everywhere I could
  7. One more question...Can anyone please tell me whether, after converting a circle to a text frame, can I edit that text frame to be a different shape, e.f.g triangle or round cornered rectangle, thanks
  8. The client is a non-profit community association. I am helping them pro bono. If there were no alternatives I would go cap in hand and ask for expenses. But knowing they rely on donations and are doing good work in the community I would prefer not to eat into that if there is a viable alternative. I am very grateful for all the suggestions - whether I use them or not in this project I have learned a lot. But my preference for this job which I would prefer not to even charge expenses for is the text frame background. I am used to Photo and Designer but this was a revelation as I have only just got publisher. My time for professional work is charged at £45 - £75 p.h. (depending on whether it is music production or artwork or whether royalties are involved). I would never bill a client for faffing around or, as I prefer to call it, research unless it was specific to a particular job only and they new in advance I would need to do it so giving them the opportunity to compare a realistic quote withe somebody else - who may already know everything they needed. So I might say "this work will cost £300 but is not my specialist field. I have to charge that for my time and studio, but you may well find a specialist in putting numbers on maps for a lot less"
  9. Great thanks. I tried it and works well, except I'd prefer if it kept the centre the same but I can easily workaround by moving them slightly altogether afterwards. Only problem is that it seems to only work randomly, sometimes it works, other times it doesn't and they all move apart.🤫
  10. Suppose I have mutiple objects and want to rezise them while each one retains its postion. I know I can do this by shift clicking or selecting in the layer, but this creates a box that contains all the objects. If grab a corner of the box I can resize them, but it resizes the entire selected area, so as they resize they move apart as their positions are relative the the overall selection. In other words they do not stay where they were relative to the canvas. Please can someone explain how to resize but keep them in position, thanks. Screen Recording 2020-02-13 at 14.08.21.mov

  12. That's what I've been doing, I know I sound like I'm too lazy to switch back and forth!
  13. Yes I get that but I don't see how to view the text frame studio so I can edit the text frame, e.g. change the background colour
