  1. I’m not sure about tiff . I pretty much use PDF but, yes it had problems with being RGB even though it said it was CMYK. I do believe i’ve Got it worked out now. That is the correct profile for us.
  2. How about a feature for a file timer. It could be reset, have a list of times and dates when it was worked on.
  3. I see what you mean now. "Generic" is only available on the desktop version. I actually am a printer and we setup for the US Web Coated (SWOP) v2 for compatibility then we (try) and tell it to remove all profiles on export to PDF so that it will not mess up the RIP's and large format printers. On files we have exported from Designer they have had massive pilings of ink and it should not be that way. I noticed that the transparency, even if told to be CMYK will export with an RGB profile. I've reported this as a bug. If you use PDF/x4 it will export as CMYK transparencies.
  4. @Love2Design I agree with everything up there. Even before the new models came out I was able to get a 256 12.9 iPad Pro for $750. I thought it was a great deal on Amazon and picked it up. I wasn't even considering one until I saw Designer come out. Apple should be paying Affinity since it's selling iPad Pros! >>That’s a few helpful hints and tips to get you started. Hope it’s helpful for you seeing you helped me so much before. I did notice that affinity designer on the iPad doesn’t have the generic cmyk profile option, << I am able to set the print profile just fine in the preferences, along with the color model as CMYK when setting up a new document. Is that what you are talking about?
  5. Has a solution to this been implemented? I can't seem to find it. thanks!
  6. I just ran into a problem. I noticed there was an update (1.6.5) for Designer on the Affinity site here and I downloaded it and installed it. I originally bought it on the Mac App store where the last update is 10 months old (1.6.1). I thought I would install the latest since I was having a problem with gradient transparencies not exporting correctly to PDF. Now it's asking me for a key that I don't have. What can I do now besides by another version online? The app store won't let me download it because it's installed and just wants to open. What's the deal with the app store not getting updated? thanks!
  7. With buying and downloading all the brushes, I'm getting overloaded on choices and switching bakc and forth between brushes. Could there be a "favorites" and "last used" sets of brushes? Perhaps your last 10 or 15 brushes used? And, with Favorites you could have an option in the edit that would add it to your favorites? thanks!
  8. It got it and it looks pretty good! How do you keep the color in the logo? I can see this will be very helpful
  9. Vectoraster seems to be doing just what I was thinking. Can you change the LPI and the angle? Also, I don't see a website for it other than download sites (which some are less than reputable). Do you know what the website is?
  10. Essecntially that's what it is but how do you do that in Affinity Designer and keep it vector? What you are showing is quite a bit different than what I included. You have black dots inside subway mask. The one I posted was the color was all the dots.
  11. Have you tried Capture One? I have both licenses but only use Capture One because it is so much better in nearly every way.
  12. I saw this PDF recently of a logo that is brought into Corel Draw and it turned it into a screen. Not only that but it made it vector (earth isn't vector) when the original wasn't. Anyhow, I was wondering how you could make something like this effect in Designer. Any ideas? Thanks!Corel Draw 2018 Pointillizer Tool.pdf
  13. I've got the iPad Pro and the Affinity Designer and it's fantastic--except for one thing: When I'm drawing in Designer using the Apple Pencil the color picker keeps coming up and choosing colors. How can I turn off the color picker while I'm drawing? I've turned off the option "touch for gestures only" and it makes no difference. I searched and found other people are having the same problem but seemingly no solutions. Has anyone come up with a solution? thanks!
  14. I too wonder how importing 4 pictures with a combined total of 200MB turn into a 997MB Affinity file.
  15. It is not being saved to any cloud service at all (it backs up later to one). It is saved to our Mac server on the LAN that hosts all of our files. Sometimes it's just fine too. I'm not sure what the error is. I've also had the error on my Macbook air when it's not on the network.
  16. I do not work on removable storage. Many times the files are fine. I also can't seem to get it to stop, by doing a Save As, once it starts the error. Is there any method to fix a file?
  17. I'm on a 27" iMac using 10.13.6 and 1.6.1 I'm getting this error regularly: I'm not sure what to do. The file closes immediately. The file can still be opened afterward and it looks like everything saved . Is this a bug?
  18. thanks or the info! The program is great and a little polish to help make it similar to what people migrating over will always be helpful!
  19. I do see that and I have used that but I mean just to keep the settings you just used that it would remember them while you are building it to save as a preset when you are ready. Thanks for the info!
  20. I have now been creating more and more work professionally for our print shop and I found a few things that i would like to see added in to Affinity. 1. Print settings saved each time you use it. I used Affinity to print a document today from the Mac and I changed my settings, page size, colors, etc. and then printed and it came out great. I went to print again and everything had reverted back to the original settings as when I was there the first time. 2. Color Swatches. I would like to see an object that has a fill or a stroke, when selected, show the selected color they are filled with in the swatches. Right now it does not and is not clear unless you double click on the color in the top left of the swatch window. It's very easy to accidentally click on another color than the one you intend. thank you! Bryce
  21. Is the scroll work vector and how did you make it?
  22. In dialog boxes where one has to enter margins or bleeds or things of that nature for four sides gets a little tedious. Would it be possible that measurements for more than one thing could include a lock button so that you enter it in the first box and it applies automatically to all 4 boxes? Increase and decrease buttons would be very handy for any setting such as fonts, paragraph spacings, etc. Right now I am trying to make banners with large fonts but I cannot just click up and down (or SHIFT for 10 increase). I have to type it in manually or use one of the preset numbers, which is not enough. Thank you for listening and for the great software!
