  1. I'm having the same problem. 16" MacBook Pro with Big Sur.
  2. It's really beyond annoying that 'All pages' is not the default and not only that, but you cannot save it as a preset so you cannot even change the default yourself. It is basically a faulty implementation. Surely this change would be trivial beyond belief. @MEB
  3. To be honest, I'm actually pretty happy with using macOS Photos.app as my photo library. I like that it works with iCloud photos so I've got all my photos wherever I am and whatever device I'm using. Perhaps what I'd request is a library interface in Affinity Photo on Mac that exposes the photos / iCloud library within the app. I guess different libraries and types of libraries could be accommodated so you could potentially also add a google photo library or create a new local one from scratch.
  4. Thanks, and sorry for the really slow reply. The Replace Image button in the toolbar is much easier. The sorting by page # helps but doesn't really solve the issue. Still think that being able to set the resource manager to not collapse the list and to highlight the resource selected in the document (not quite the same as using the 'locate' tool) would be helpful. Mainly, not showing collapsed lists in the first place so that you don't have to do multiple clicks of selecting and deselecting and reselecting again. For now, I'll just try to get used to working with the toolbar button.
  5. It would seem advantageous to have “soft select” settings so that you could define only exactly the same colour or same + similar colours. That second option would pick up RGB + CMYK colours that are similar whereas the first would only select the precise RGB or CMYK colour.
  6. Finally. So pleased this has come and it is part of the 1.X version series. Looking forward to trying it out
  7. @Gabe @MEB any chance one of you could communicate how essential this is to someone that can do something about it? Being able to find the scaled size vs the original size of a placed file (I honestly don't give a monkey's if it is a JPG or a PDF, both should behave the same) is really incredibly important. It cannot just be those of us working in the built environment that find this omission a total pain in the bum. There must be loads of designers and people preparing instruction manuals etc who need to know what size an image will be output at.
  8. Well that’s: a) pathetic and b) really unhelpful Our workflow requires it. So you’d better make sure this is something that does work. Working on files across a network is not a new thing. Does Serif consider the suite to be suitable for professional use? If the answer is yes, then working on files across a network is about the first feature on the list. Sorry for the tone, I am just completely stunned that this might actually be a legitimate and genuine approach. Someone needs to get a grip, because it is laughable. Anyway, it’s been fine working across a network since even the earliest public betas. Since linked files have worked properly it improved greatly. I can’t really share a work flow. Unless you want me to show you a video of me clicking save from the file menu. As for file samples, as you can imagine, I rescued from a back up and got rid of the corrupted ones. Next time it happens, I’ll be sure to keep them.
  9. I've never had a problem until recently. The file is not massive although if all the linked files were embedded then it would be huge. File is 68MB. But I'm getting 100% CPU use for extended periods when duplicating or deleting pages. This is crazy. Saving takes about a minute. My network is not that slow.
  10. I cannot be the only one who needs this but I've been after it now for a couple of years. Most of our documents include scale architectural drawings. Often, we might have consecutive pages with different drawings of the same project. For example, floor plans for a multi-storey building. When inserting these, we want to: Know the scale at which these files are inserted Be certain of the positioning such that when move from one page to the next the drawings align with each other. For example, page 1 has the ground floor and the next page might have the 1st floor. These should be positioned exactly on top of each other so that it doesn't jump around when viewing on screen Currently, doing these two very basic and essential things are a complete pain in the bottom. Summary of the problems: If you crop an image (either as a frame or an inserted image), when replacing the linked file the positioning changes. I would say this is probably a bug. When replacing a placed image its positioning should not change between the page and the inserted image / PDF. it should be possible to identify how an image has been scaled relative to the paper size of the image. For example, insert an A1 PDF drawing that is at 1:100 scale and reduce it in size by 50%. That would then be at the scale of 1:200. All very well when inserting it. If you come back later or if someone else works on the document it is impossible to find out how it has been transformed. The only option is to reinsert it. That is stupid. Related to the above, preflight reports when images are not scaled proportionally. Can I find a control / information within the interface to control this? Of course not. This is puzzling. These two (three?!) things are making it REALLY difficult working with scaled drawings. If anyone has a good workflow / workaround for these failures please let me know because I'm pulling my hair out and simply don't get how these a) were left out in the first place and b) have still not been sorted out. Hopefully it's just that I am looking in the wrong place and this functionality is there somewhere.
  11. It seems that things are really not very happy. So many crashes. VERY slow to save. Huge pauses when duplicating a spread. Images are linked rather than embedded so the file size is not crazy big. It's driving me a bit crazy. Anyone have any tips of things I could try to get it working well? @MEB
  12. I'm having a lot of crashes when saving files to a network drive. It results in corrupted files. Needless to say, this is a really big problem.
  13. Hi Chris I’ll have a look. Having experienced this problem a few times a quit and reopen or restarting of the machine typically fixes it. So I don’t think it is file related. This happens periodically and I’ve mentioned it before over the years but this is the first time I thought to record it before restarting etc. Over the last week or so I’ve been working with about 50 images. Open RAW files, develop (or merge to HDR) and then make adjustments. It seems to occur after working on many files in a row. It never seems to be the first few files where this weird behaviour shows up. Re photo persona, I really don’t like the persona thing and ignore it. I have no idea I’m afraid. I open RAW files and work with them. What goes on on the top left isn’t something I pay attention to.
  14. I've been working with RAW and Merge to HDR images all afternoon. Suddenly the grid on this one is behaving all weird. Screen_Recording_2020-06-06_at_17_32_56.mov
