  1. Thanks
    Rick G got a reaction from Patrick Connor in Affinity Publisher Public Beta - 1.7.0.145 (Windows)   
    I don't need to go back. I can install any update, with the failure and the reboot that I documented. Then it installs correctly and is totally usable
    I don't mind doing it a few times and generating logs so you can see what is going on. There are directions elsewhere and I can do it over the weekend
    And you guys can get to it when you can hopefully before final release (and that is not snotty ... it does not matter if it does not get fixed for the next beta)
    Just trying to help

    Yes, thank you. I had edited my post to reflect that I had cleaned up manually and had success. Thanks for the tool. I grabbed it and will keep it around. I am thinking the Publisher installer has some deeper issues going on. I am sure it will get figured out

    Rick G got a reaction from stokerg in Can't install Affinity Publisher (bug)   
    So here is what you do. Clean out the temp folder for your profile. Use Wise cleaner, Ccleaner or something like that and reboot. Before you load anything, load task manager, kill any startup programs that you don't need then try the install. If it does not work,, make sure it is not hung up in the task manager then RUN AS ADMINISTRATOR. and see if that does it
    Also check to see if it in fact created the program folder
    Check to see if the install window is running behind everything else
    Check permissions on everything and if you must add your self with full permissions EVEN IF you are in the ADMINISTRATORS group with full permissions
    Just had an update of windows 10? Check permissions again. Remember, they are "improving" Windows 7 into the best phone app on the market (don't get me going)
    Anyway, please post back and good luck

    Rick G reacted to o5m6 in Weathering with Brushes   
    I'm specialized in 2D drawings of WW2 military vehicles and use XARA Xtreme 5.1 for the shapes.
    The real challenge comes with camouflage and weathering as fabric-new vehicles are not an option.
    Recently I discovered Affinity Photo with its brush collection and layer effects, just what I was looking for.
    So I export the raw drawing as psd format raster file with layers (!) into AP for further refinement.
    Hope you like it.

    Rick G got a reaction from PaulAffinity in Selection Brush in Photo Issue   
    You might want to start clicking on the color channels until you find the one that gives you the most contrast ... green for the ducks. then tweak that and make the contrast greater withou clipping detail. THEN do your selection, get it the way you want it, hide that layer, select the original layer and you are good to go.
    There are a bunch of tutorials about color channels and channel masking here is a great one. Below this is just the green channel from your pic

    Rick G reacted to unni in Panorama of a 1750 palace   
    This is my first try on a panorama. The AP software is doing a wonderful job. One image is just after the stitching of 5 RAW images without any corrections. The other one is processed. I have used the warp tool to correct the distortion . After warp, went back to develop persona for lens distortion option for further correction. Then  inpainting to remove the central drum and house on the right side. Unsharp mask for sharpening and luminosity mask used for curves adjustment of some dark areas of the palace. Camera is Nikon D3100, 1/100 sec, f8, ISO 100, hand held, kit lens 18-55.
    The palace is built sometime in 1750 and name Krishnapuram Palace, Ochira, Kerala, India. The pond extends into the middle of the palace from the underground. Wiki gives more details.
    The image below is processed.

     
    The image below is not processed. Only stitched.

    When you work with the font, the cursor disappears. When the delete button is clicked, characters can be deleted, or words may be wholly. The problem is present in both the stable and beta versions.

    Hi kirtonm,
    Welcome to Affinity Forums
    Make sure you have a pixel layer selected in the Layers panel. Also check if your document is set to RGB8/16 bit in menu Document ▸ Colour Format. If not change the format to RGB 8 or 16 bit.

    Animation shop is hardly a rival and you can find and download it legally from sites like old versions. Here is a link and I do not think the ancient PSP is competition for Affinity products but if the admins think otherwise I have animation shop on dropbox just send me a pm. These are from 2007 when JASC owned PSP and not Corel versions. These are legal.

    If anyone uses the clone brush a lot and is constantly changing the angle, scale or flipping the selection, you might agree with having a button to reset the brush back to defaults

    The are not all there and appear to be truncated; the bottom half seems to be missing
    If you grab the left half of the module and stretch it a bit, the rest will pop into view. Do this for both modules and it will stick
