  1. Do you have Affinity Photo as well, if so this might help you https://affinityrevolution.com/change-colors-in-affinity-photo/ or this
  2. It might be that the pages box is being hidden behind the manuscript. Try going the master page select the # box and use the move to front tool
  3. Thanks for your reply I actually managed to get my Canon printer to work. So if anyone else is having issues this is the choice I made: Exported from Publisher as PDF doc using all Spreads Selected Print >These are the choices I made: ticked two sided A4 ticked auto rotate orientation Portrait Selected Scale to fit Selected Fill entire Page Copies per page set as 1 Then I selected Select Layout Page per sheet 1 Layout first on left; top to bottom Border none Two Sided selected short edge binding
  4. Hi I have been having a problem with my printer printing off a brochure. So in Affinity Publisher does it make a difference if I export as All Pages or All Spreads when trying to produce a booklet from A4 sheets to what would be A5? Also when I try and print the second page on the back of the first prints upside down, any ideas how I can resolve this ? Thanks
  5. So I went out this morning to see if could reproduce the magenta in highlights. Most of the images were OK apart from these two 707 was in RAW and 706 in mRAW 706 shows magenta highlights in the clouds but 707 in RAW was OK. So I guess the answer is to only shoot RAW, until AP fix something. Thanks to all for their replies, appreciated . 7H1A1706.CR2 7H1A1707.CR2
  6. Thanks for your reply, it's difficult to know when to use the filters as it does not always happen, depends on the light even on the same day. So maybe I will try the filters but for now I will shoot RAW and not mRAW and see if that makes a difference. Strange that Canon software resolves the issue, guess they are aware of it. So it appears that there is nothing I can change in AP preferences or set up to improve the issue. I will test shooting in RAW and mRAW on the same day and see the results. Will report back.

  7. Thanks Kirk, tried your suggestion and changed from Serif Labs to Apple (core raw image) the result was more blown out areas now in red when I reduced the highlights it removed the larger red areas and left behind the magenta/pink areas as my image showed. But thanks for the suggestion.
  8. Yes I think you are right I have changed to RAW and will see how it works out. But the fact that Canon software 'fixes' the issue maybe its something for Affinity Photo to look into in the future. Will post back again once I have checked it out with mRAW and RAW. Thanks for the help and guidance much appreciated. Just imported the offending RAW image into Apple Photo for editing and although I can still see the magenta areas they are very faint and smaller.
  9. Thank you, yes i have had it mRAW, mainly to save file sizes. I will change back to RAW and see if that makes a difference. Can you think of any other settings in camera that might need to changed. The canon software does not show the issue, so there presumably is a software fix. Hopefully, using RAW will resolve the issue as I prefer Affinity Photo.
  10. Thanks, yes firmware is up to date. I also tried adjusting the exposure and highlights which have no effect. So, I am thinking it might be camera settings. Appreciate your input.
  11. Thank you for the reply, it does not always happen. MacOS is Catalina 10.15.6 Jpeg images opened directly from the camera are OK. Not all RAW files have the issue, but enough to be an issue. Thanks, attached image 7H1A1683.CR2
  12. Thanks yes I think you are correct as jpeg images come out OK from the Camera. But not too sure if its a 'bug' in Affinity Photo or me needing to make some changes in the preferences settings.
  13. Hi I have an issue with some landscape RAW images. I use a Canon 7D Mk2 with canon lens. If I import RAW image into Affinity Photo on my iMac the sky sometimes has blown out area that are pink in colour, as below example. If I use Canon software this does not appear. Do I need to set something up in preferences affinity photo to avoid this issue. Thanks for any suggestions.
  14. Brilliant thank you that fixed it. Appreciate the help ... keep safe from the coronavirus
  15. Thanks for your reply I tried various options but it doesn't seem to make any difference.
  16. Hi I am very new to the app and publishing. Can anyone explain when I export from Publisher to pdf everything looks OK. But if I open the new PDF doc in Affinity Publisher some letters/words are garbage. PDF opened in Affinity looks like this: ' Christmas BriĜany Break This is a good opportunity for a relaxing break aĢer all the Christmas shopping has been done and before the arduous Christmas fesHviHes begin. It’s also a chance to stock up with some keenly priced French goodies, wines, cheeses, etc and enjoy a typical French dinner before deparHng. We are oĢen asked why we follow the same programme each year. It’s simple - it works! ' In Affinity Publisher original doc and exported PDF looks like this: ' Christmas Brittany Break This is a good opportunity for a relaxing break after all the Christmas shopping has been done and before the arduous Christmas festivities begin. It’s also a chance to stock up with some keenly priced French goodies, wines, cheeses, etc and enjoy a typical French dinner before departing. We are often asked why we follow the same programme each year. It’s simple - it works! ' Font used in Affinity Publisher Calibri -- So it seems to export OK just an issue if I open the expected doc in Affinity Publisher. Thanks
  17. Now is the time to buy ! https://affinity.serif.com/en-gb/?utm_source=serifemail&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=COVID19&mc=COVID19E01&utm_source=Affinity+Subscribers&utm_campaign=9c8afe6dfd-EMAIL_CAMPAIGN_2020_02_21_11_19_COPY_01&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_46837f1d52-9c8afe6dfd-314281233
  18. Cost is one off also free updates until version changes from 1.8 to presumably version 2 Absolutely worth the money in fact all three Photo Designer and Publisher. Be aware from time to time there are offers and apps can be discounted.
  19. Hi Would it be possible to have tutorial video on setting up how to handle RAW files from Canon. I have Canon 7d MK2 and nearly always the Canon RAW file histogram appears very heavy towards the dark side. If I run the same image in Canon software it appears much better. The in camera jpg histogram when I took the pictures looked OK. I have read several comments on the forum, but just getting confused. Should the image always be set to 16 Bit or why should you not use 32 bit. What would be the best settings in Develop assistant and are there any other options. Thanks
  20. Hi I have an Apple running AP 1.7.3 iMac (Retina 5K, 27-inch, Late 2015) Processor 3.3GHz Quad_core Intel Core i5 24GB 1867 MHz DDR3 and AMD Radeon R9 M395 2GB graphics card I am find opening .CR2 files very slow if you try and select a large number at once say 20. They are loading from an external hard drive. Does any one know of an optimum number of files that will opening quickly, or should initially store directly to my Apple hard drive to speed the process?
