  1. I've noticed one curious thing and i just want to ask if that is correct. When creating New documento in the "Print" tab in Designer and Photo they are by default in RGB Color mode, but on Publisher they are in CMYK, is that correct? Just asking because i work on all 3 90% of the time in CMYK and if that is correct i will need to create all my templates in Designer and Photo.
  2. Yes, i agree with you. It makes sense in Photo, the same way that make some sense in Publisher the default to be in CMYK, but i think in Designer it should be too, or have both options like the retail version.

    Affinity Publisher is Appleā€™s Mac App of the Year

    Congrats guys! Well deserved! Thanks for the hard work that let us have great apps at our disposal and at a really good price which doesn't make us feel imprisoned! Keep them coming!
  4. I've updated the app to 1.7.3, i'm working on a simple document and when i'm going to export it to pdf the app simply crashes everytime. After 4 or 5 attempts to make it work with nothing changed, no more crashes but if you can take a look at the crash report it would be appreciated. Maybe something that's my fault? (Don't think so) Thank you. Affinity Designer_2019-10-02-103912_Mac-mini-de-Daniel.crash

    Repeated Crash on Export 1.7.3

    Hi Sean This was on a new document, created from scratch in 1.7.3, but i've had it too once with a document created on 1.7.2. After those 4 or 5 attempts i've had no more crashes since, but i haven't done too much since it was from this morning but i will let you know if i have more. I have a good number of fonts installed but i've had a problem on version 1.6 and after that i know that i can't have more than 2500 installed/activated so, for now i have less than 2000. For some reason (that's i i've asked you to take a look at the crash) the same way the problem shows up, the problem goes away, and i've done nothing, only repeating the export procedure ... Looks like those old cars starting engines from the first time in the morning Maybe i should have cleared the user defaults? Don't know

    Hearts Brushes - Valentines Day

    Just want to thank you all! I've just downloaded my own brushes because i've lost my file and i've noticed 406 downloads! That's pretty nice!
  8. I've done a lot of works in Publisher (simpler and small ones, mostly party posters) and i think for me is good enough to work with, but i really use N-UP a lot to design for instance in A5 and the with the N-UP i can have quickly 4 in a page 32x45cm with bleed marks and everything on it. That's why i use print a lot, otherwise my workflow is pdf export. Curiously the file that is crashing on 1.7.2 have a pdf embedded on it (It crashes Designer and Photo too)... Don't know if it is the cause. The files that i create after in 1.7.2 didn't crash the print but didn't have embedded documents. I need to do some more tests.
  9. This is happening in the now 1.7.2 retail version. Come on guys! This is a really important feature that i need today and now i can't! How can i have the 1.7.1 back? Edit: Crash report attached. Seems to happen on a specific file that i have with a pdf embedded, but it works ok on 1.7.1... Affinity Publisher_2019-08-16-152457_Mac-mini-de-Daniel.crash
  10. I can confirm that. It's not happening on the retail version! The file that is causing the crash open well and print in the retail version.
  11. Thanks Adam. What i do most of the times is select the field i want, delete and enter my numbers. But yes, now i see some improvements. What i would like to see is the ability to transform the resulting N-up in a new document (which i use a lot). Why? because i've done some tests and if i use the mac os export to pdf all the colors will shift to another colour profile? maybe. And what i do is to export to pdf, open that pdf in publisher, designer and export again with my pdf preset...
  12. What should be the difference to the retail version regarding this? For me they are looking the same.
  13. Thank you all! @ydaltak I've done that and when things starting closing gasps they were too tight and look like a continuos word. What i've done is to select all the text and changed the kerning to a negative value. @thomaso i will check that out!
  14. How can i reduce the space between 2 words in a paragraph? See the attached image please. Reduce the space marked by the black lines. I've tried the justification options in the paragraph studio but when it start to become closer it's too tight. Any opinions/sugestion? Thanks
  15. Just to say thank you! Didn't know that trick but it is really helpful. I've just used it and it was much more easier than trial and error with the rotation. Thanks again.
  16. You should check updates in the App Store, 1.7.1 came out a few minutes ago. I'm still doing some tests.
  17. Lot of crashes this morning because i've had the need to export a lot of files from different works. I've had crashes with pdf, png, jpgs and svgs. I've had one of them that the export dialog appear as normal and go through the end and when i've searched for him in the folder it wasn't there and when i've exported to the same folder, crash. I've had crashes saving to a NAS folder but have had saving to the desktop too... That was not occuring in the last .14 beta. Affinity Designer_2019-06-13-124011_Mac-mini-de-Daniel.crash
  18. @MEB I've had some too. Here is a crash report i've saved. export.crash.rtf

    Wacom tablet issues

    @budaloco It's usable, sometimes that happens but believe me it's much better than 3 or 4 builds before in beta stage. thanks for the improvements @Ben. Looking forward to the new ones.
  20. I will try to not spoil it even more. WOW. How can you guys do that? It seems like magic (still wondering if some things wouldn't complicate/conflict with others but...). For those who have bought Publisher but don't have Designer and Photo you should take the 20% discount that is available now because you won't regret. I think you should have call it Powerhouse instead of Publisher . @Patrick Connor you can delete this post if you want
  21. Guys it's not the "old" logo, it is the Affinity logo which has not changed.
  22. Really nice the new splash screen!!
  23. Hi. I've done a quick test and don't know if it is a bug or not but i've done a quick video. I've done a pdf with some placed numbers. Imported that file. I've done a separated file in Publisher and then placed 14 of them in a A3 page (which is the file i'm placing in the master) And i can't save the document if i have it in the master... My idea is to have a prepared file for some raffle tickets, and the idea is to just change the embedded document and have it quickly done, but i can't do it... So the question is, i'm doing anything wrong or i've found something? (Video attached) Publisher.mov
