  1. That's weird, I was using that the other week after Designer and Photo were updated on the app store - its brilliant.
  2. My jaw didn't so much drop… it fell to the floor and smashed to pieces. Thanks for the dental bill, Affinity!
  3. Pre-ordered within 30 seconds of getting the email. Looking forward to gradually migrating from Indesign.
  4. Amazing work on #330 folks, the file size reduction when you relink images is a lifesaver (see my post here) - I've had files drop from 300mb+ down to under 2mb. Friday beers all around!
  5. Can confirm - massive (I mean MASSIVE!) savings in 330… They are both the same document, the original (highlighted) is 324.2mb (8pp document with LINKED images), whilst the copy above it is 1.6mb. What I did was open the resources panel and relink to the same image file and hit save. No need to delete images and re-import, it worked first time. Here's another file I was working on - play it and wait a second (it was saving the file) and watch the size drop like a rock… File save reduction.mov Thanks to all the devs - this was a big issue to me as I always take a copy of my previous file, rename it and work on that file. That way I can refer back to an old proof if a client decides to revert or grab something from it. A lot of my Indesign files are between 2mb and 70mb so space isn't an issue but several 324.2mb files is. Good work - its Friday tomorrow so grab yourselves a nice cool beer!
  6. I doubt that's the plan, I think Affinity have a clear plan to have several applications which serve a specific purpose and to do that purpose properly. They've been clear that they don't want to go down the subscription route (that could change, I know) and if they stick to their guns and plan clearly then there's no reason why they'd get sucked into the Adobe circle of hell. It certainly seems that they listen to their userbase (something Adobe et al couldn't do so easily back in the day), and I would seriously be interested in investing should they decide to go down this route.
  7. Having used Affinity Designer and Photo (and testing Publisher) I can see Affinity replacing my Adobe software in the not too distant future (and I can see a lot of other users doing the same). With that in mind, I'm wondering if there's any plans for people to actually be able to invest in the company? I'd love to put my money behind the company which will ultimately overthrow the evil Adobe empire!
  8. Yep, I logged this issue here: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/84243-pinning-panel-display-issues-in-dark-mode/
  9. I've not updated to Mohave (well I have, but I reverted to High Sierra as it slowed down my system too much). Wonder if that has anything to do with it.
  10. Out of interest @Seneca, what system are you running?
  11. I'll admit I got a bit confused with the inline vs floating object at first but its been implemented really well (apart from a problem with how the panel displays in dark mode for me). Not bad for a first stab. DocX also requires a pat on the back of the folksters involved - they should enjoy their weekend beers, they certainly deserve it.
  12. Just downloaded the latest version with pinned objects and I find the panel is displaying oddly - I can't see the contents properly. Just the panel (looks the same docked or floating): With a picture selected and set to inline with text: Using the light mode I see the following: This is the version I'm running. Did someone forget to style the dark mode panel?
  13. I've been waiting for the 'Pinned Objects for Text' functionality to be implemented before getting stuck in and doing some really indepth testing as I use this feature every day with Indesign. So, you're now just a couple of steps short of replacing Indesign for me! Good work chaps/chapesses - thanks for listening to the feedback!
  14. If you go to 'Document Preferences' you can set to either embed or link to images, linked helps keep sizes down.
