    Microsoft Windows Developer Awards 2018

    Affinity Team: A belated but thoroughly deserved recognition. The hard work has paid off. I have been off the grid for a while, so this award is a heartening accolade to return to.

    Affinity Designer Workbook

    Well the same thing happened to me. I placed the order online and the system accepted it immediately, or so I thought. It was a standard shipping fee something like you said. Then a human in Affinity Orders department obviously realized the delivery address is not U.K., but they had accepted the order to be delivered to the French Caribbean islands. The following day they refunded the full amount. I finished up having to order it on Amazon in the US and ship it internally in the U.S. to the freight forwarder in Miami, then fly it out to the islands, then have it delivered to my door. That cost me around $US100. I would say after seeing this magnificent volume, the ADW is worth every cent and I would do it again in a heart beat once the APW hit the presses. Also, the book got pretty banged up along the way. Michael
  3. Hi Photomo, I can't say for Windows and you don't say which version, but: Sounds like a corrupt download. Do integrity test on archive file. Failing that you could rename the file and redownload it, and then compare the CRC checksums by right clicking on file and choose CRC SHA (at least thats what my Windows 10 menu has). Michael

    Warp needs work

    I can confirm this. The mesh warp tool locked up on me once I had a lot of nodes and hit apply. Michael

    AD/AP Crashes when/during computer goes/is idle

    Hi, We have the same OS version and I have no such problem. Have you tried unchecking require password after sleep in Security & Privacy under General tab just as an experiment? Also, there's no harm in downloading the the Betas. You still have the production version installed and see if the problems persists. Michael

    What tablet do I use

    You make a good point Alfred. In the interests of transparency I will do it your way. So, what do you think of the tablet? It reaches me Monday, as everything comes here in container ships. Do you have any experience with the nibs? Michael

    What tablet do I use

    Hi @SrPx The 27 inch iMac 5K just arrived. (see specs below) The vendor for the refurbished Wacom stuck it on back order, so I cancelled it and got this Wacom on ebay. What do you think of it for mainly logo vector design work? I know its kind of smallish for drawing, but photo retouching is just something I may try out of curiosity--definitely not my bread and butter. Also, the small tablet may be more suitable for travel with my I will travel with it and want to fit it in with my 13" MackBook Pro. After reading your comment on nibs and I asked the seller he said it is the original one that came with it and it in perfect condition, but he lost the pen holder which usually has the nib remover and an assortment of nibs inside. I am thinking the hard felt nib set with the code Wacom ACK-20003 Do you think one standard nib will be enough for a while? They are cheap enough. I, like you am looking to AD 1.6 with brush stabilization. It will interesting to see how The Wacom works on wireless. Affinity have a few of them in the office and they said lag is not an issue with Affinity software. I guess this would be more about whether the drivers are buggy. As long as tilt and pressure work, it should be fine. Finally, I really appreciate your good advice, and have taken it. What do you think? Michael
  9. Hi Mike and others who replied. Here is what I got. iMac Retina 5K, 27 inch, Late 2015, 3.2Ghz i5, 8GB 1867Mhz DDR3, AMD Radeon R9 M380 2GB; 1TB HDD, it came with El Capitan, so I upgraded it to macOS Sierra 10.12.3 I am totally on board with your configuration Mike. Instead of a good refurb, $1780 got me a late 2015, brand new but it's still a current and supported model. The 2 x 4GB is a bit lame, but I will add 2 x 8GB and should be ready to rock and roll. Also found a used Wacom Intuos 5 (small) + wireless kit on eBay and its on the way. I asked on another thread about wireless lag with the Wacom and Affinity say they have some wireless ones and they work fine. What is your experience or do you suggest I use USB? Michael
  10. I sent an email to affinityorders@serif.com and they sorted it. Michael
  11. Hey Miguel, The above link refers to Windows. Is it the same for Apple? Thanks Michael I
