  1. Even after rebooting and trying multiples times, I just now did it again and now it's working... ugh, sometimes I really hate computers... lol
  2. Please see my attached logs. Nothing seems to jump out as an issue other than the Setup Failed in the bottom SetupUI.log Setup.log
  3. I am trying to update my Affinity Photo and Designer to 1.7.3 and the setup fails. No reason given, doesn't even look like it tries, just immediatley a Setup Failed popup on both of them. I've tried just running them, running htem as administrator, nothing seems to work. Windows 7
  4. I never knew this. I always just assumed because the stroke and fill boxes didn't show up on the top toolbar when multiple objects were selected, that meant it wasn't possible. But I used the stroke and color options on the left side toolbar and it did work. So I retract my suggestion, or perhaps revise it to make this a little more obvious somehow. I've been using Affinity Designer for a couple of years, always frustrated thinking I had to set stroke and fill options individually... My own fault I suppose... heh heh heh
  5. Unless there's already a way I haven't found, I'd like to be able to select multiple objects and set their fills and/or strokes all at once. I know styles can be used, but sometimes I just need to make a quick change to several objects stroke width, color, or their fill color and don;t want to go through the hassle of styles.
  6. Illustrator has them, Inkscape has them (free no less), but Affinity does not. They sure would be helpful in creating depth maps and 3D reliefs for CNC and Laser projects.
  7. I'm finding the gradient options in Affinity to be less than stellar. I'm trying to manually create depth maps for an image, but need gradients that conform to a shape, or follow a contour. Is there any way to do this within Affinity Designer or Photo?
  8. Ahhh... Not only an Image, but it also has to be rasterized apparently. I added an 8bit RGB image, amde a selection, and still nothing. So an "Image" layer is not quite the same thing as a "Pixel" layer, because to get it to work, I had to right click my image and choose Rasterize before it would work. But it did work. Thanks for your help. Just one more quick question, what is the difference between an image that's loaded in a layer versus an Pixel layer?
  9. I just realized there's also a 64bit plugin. Once I dropped that into the default folder, it showed up in the menu. Still can't seem to actually use it, but it's there. I have an image, 8bit RGB and I make a selection, and go to the menu but it won't let me actually choose decorator.
  10. I'm using the default path setup, and I manually copied the *.8bf file there. I did try an external directory, and then adding that directory to the Plugin Preferences, but it didn't make any difference.
  11. Yes, I did check that option. I see in the list that there are Akvis plugins listed, but you're right, the Decorator plugin isn't listed. I wonder, if plugins follow a specific interface and implementation, why some work, and others don't. To work as a plugin, the code has to conform to certain requirements. So why would Affinity Photo, which recognizes and uses those interfaces and implementations, only recognize some of them?
  12. What is the best way to get a Photoshop plugin to actually work? I've had one that I have used quite frequently over the years in Photoshop, but now that I'm using Affinity Photo, I'm finding this specific plugin doesn't seem to want to do anything. The .8bf file is in the correct folder, but still it doesn't show up under the Filter menu option. Is there something else that is needed to be done to get it to work? It is the Akvis Decorator plugin in case you're curious... http://akvis.com/en/decorator/index.php
  13. I see that people have requested a line simplify or smoothing functionality, which I wholeheartedly approve of, but some additional point handling would also be useful. Such as being able to align selected points, make points equidistant from each other, etc... If you approve and add the line smoothing and simplification, please add additional point handling as well. Pretty please...
