  1. Would that be the First Quarto, Second Quarto or First Folio? 😁
  2. ... also the Windows version at the same time! 1.9 is probably a while off yet! But it is almost certain that it will be released for both Mac and Windows at the same time.
  3. Unfortunately, as Serif recommend using PDF as a way of transferring projects from their old "legacy" software to Affinity, sometimes there isn't much choice! 🙁 "you can open it on anything and it will appear as it should" That would be nice, pity it doesn't always work, because Affinity apps don't support embedded fonts!
  4. In the desktop version you can go to "Windows" - "Float All". But I'm afraid I don't know if it's the same on iPad.
  5. A long shot, but I just wonder if there is some auto rotate setting somewhere in the printer driver settings which alters the orientation of the print depending on the amount of text (number of lines) and the exact position on the envelope?
  6. You seem to be using the "flood select" tool, try using the "selection brush" (the one above it). The "flood select" works best with areas of flat colour, so you could use the "flood select" on the background and then invert the selection.
  7. This won't work well with the crown image (or most other images - it works best with line drawings) as it will remove parts of the crown as well as the background, so that the green shows through.
  8. Edit - Like GarryP said. (Beat me to it!)
  9. You could copy and paste - a bit quicker than retyping!
  10. I've just tried and can confirm this - although I'm sure it used to work correctly.
  11. If by "Lasso" you mean the "Freehand Selection Tool", it isn't intended to select objects, it's used to select an area. You can use the Move Tool to select objects. By default you need to drag completely around an object to select it, but you can change this behaviour in "Preferences" so you only need to go over the objects. Of course you can also select multiple objects by shift clicking either on the objects or in the Layers Tab.
  12. I completely agree with both of you – I was just trying to point out that if someone just has one specific problem with a PDF there are alternatives to the extortionate cost of Acrobat Pro (especially if you are not a professional user). I use it myself at work, but for home use I prefer free alternatives! 😉
  13. Sorry if I upset you by trying to help with the quote from the EULA - my crystal ball failed and I didn't realise you had already read it. Likewise, apologies for not realising that when you mentioned your "company" I didn't realise than you are an "educational institution". As walt.farrell indicated, if you don't understand the EULA it is probably best to contact the Affinity Education team directly.
  14. Not to "knock" anyone who suggests using Acrobat/Pro to edit PDF files, that's fine if you already have it (in which case you probably already know what you can do with it), but it really isn't a viable solution if you have to get it for a one off problem. (A years subscription costs more than buying the three Affinity apps outright!) There are other solutions out there. For example PDF 24 (free) has a reduce file size option. On the default setting I reduced thomaso's 4.07 MB PDF to 2.88 MB and it is possible to make it smaller by playing with the compression settings. It looks just as good to me as using Acrobat. Some people may disagree about the quality or ease of use compared to Acrobat, but depending on your needs, free may well be preferred over the cost of Acrobat. 😉
