  1. I didn't know about this usefull feature. So learned something new also. Thank you all for sharing. Great question!
  2. That is indeed a very acceptable explanation which is supported by the fact that Serif always reply. I hope everybody is fine and safe. I also wish everybody a good health and hope nobody will get infected. Chris
  3. Hi Ziemo, I do not know what is wrong because I do not experience your problem. Your frustration is very understandable, however it does not solve anything. When you click on the user "Callum" you can send him a private message. If I where you, I should try that way. I do not know why it takes so long from Serif to reply because mainly they do reply. Maybe there are still looking into your problem? Anyway, they should give better support than this. When you start a new document from scratch, what happens then? Do you receive the same behaviour. If everything is ok, then you can maybe import the objects from your affected drawing and save to disk. With every safe, add a unique number to your file. You keep adding your objects and do a Save as... When you experience the buggy behaviour, at least you know what is causing it. Then you can provide more information to the Serif support team here. I hope you will find a solution to your problem soon. No need to stress, we are here to help you. I am sure other more experienced users know an answer or workaround once they know more details about your problem. Chris
  4. Only a taught, but can't you create online courses like for Skillshare and Udemy? The investement will be much less as is the financial risk. You provide the online course with additional educative materials like ebook and personal advice over the Internet. You can have much more students then what you can have locally. Only a suggestion. Chris
  5. Hi all, In my case the "Save as..." option and then choosing ".aftemplate" did not work at all. "Export as Template..." did work nicely. Hope this helps. Chris
  6. I also have one template folder and it is working now. If you get stuck, follow the procedure I described in my post. It worked for me, it can also work for other people. Chris
  7. Thank you for your reply. It is exactly the same strange behaviour as here. I experienced this in Designer. Have a great day! Chris
  8. Hi GarryP, A video will be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance! Chris
  9. Hi, I created a Designer file which should be my template for a particular project. Like the help file explained, I created a folder called "Template" on my hard disk. Then I added the layout, colors and text styles to my normal document. then when that was done I choosed "Export as template". The file got a nice ".aftemplate" extension. I am using Affinity Designer 1.8 on a Windows 7 computer. Then I wanted to use the newly created template by using "New" inside the "File" menu. Selected "Templates" and to my surprise I saw the folder "Templates" I created but with no "Templates" inside. Also double clicking on this folder had no results. But continue reading on. I checked on my hard disk and I could see the file with the extension ".aftemplate" inside my "Templates" folder. I closed the original document so the Designer window was completely empty. Then I choosed "New" again, selected "Template" on the left, clicked on my folder "Templates" and again nothing. Still continue please. Then I selected "Presets" again and selected "Template" again without doing anything inside the "Presets". Bingo... there was my template. To make sure it was not a first time success, I closed and opened Affinity Designer again and everything worked as expected. Can somebody tell me if this is a bug or just bad luck from my side? Thank you very much for your reply. This template feature alone makes the 1.8 update great! Thank you Serif for your nice work. Chris
  10. Hi Cayenne, You can find contact information on the following page : Contact Serif Hope this helps. Chris
  11. Hi all, Today I created a table with 9 columns and 12 rows. Changing column widths of individual colums is very cumbersome and difficult. Change the width of one column and those on the right are also changed. Change the width of the table (by the inner or outer handles) change all the column widths again. Finally, I lost 3 columns without deleting them. Designer and Photo are very good applications, however, Affinity Publisher is a mess. Also the implementation how we have to work is very far fetched in my opinion. Things should be easier. Anybody else experience this problem? Have a nice day. Chris
  12. I go with MikeW using ideas/designs and then recreating them in Affinity changed to my own ideas and likings. Instead of using them as a template, I save blank designs which I later can use or adapt further to my own needs.
  13. Happy New Year to you all from Botswana Chris
  14. Merry Christmas everybody and thank you all for all the support and help received. I hope to enjoy this friendly community for years to come. Chris
  15. It is better to use an SSD for your operating system and applications. Using an extern SSD will only give you a little bit better performance. The highest performance gain is with your operating system and applications.
