  1. V3 will not be released for a long time. V1 was released in July 9, 2015. To be honest if you just got V1 then you have a world of learning to do. There is nothing in V2 that will make your pictures that much better. The secret is, that it is the artist and not the program that makes great works. That said... There will be more sales, Affinity goes on sale a few times a year. So hone your skills and when the time comes you can upgrade. I feel for you that you just bought V1, but no one is attacking you.
  2. ` I think I figured this out for Photo. I hope Designer can find all my bought plugins
  3. I have been an Affinity user since day one, and just upgraded to Affinity V2 Universal License. I read that it would just update my V1 programs so that I would not need to reinstall all my brushes and plugins. I have waited an hour but so fast When run any of my three Affinity programs I still get V1. I did log in in with my Affinity account before purchase. Thoughts?
  4. You know I thought that at first. But changed my mind. I had the use of the Affinity line for years saving a lot of money over Adobe. To be honest how much more of a discount do you want? And extra 5% an extra 10% in reality it is not that much more of a saving. PLUS with the new Universal License makes the produce even a better value. You are getting a great produce at a great value. I have no issue with them extending their generosity to others. That said, I was hoping for a light room product, and Auto trace for Designer.
  5. I really do like Affinity Designer. It is my goto for almost every project, but I really miss auto Trace. It is such a time waste to do it by hand. Is Auto Trace even on the road map?
  6. Five years later and we still do not have oil paint smoothing for Affinity Photo for pre-drawn lines? I have been hoping every year for Oil Paint Filter.
  7. All of a sudden I developed a brush issue for Designer (vector brushes only). When I draw with any vector brush I get a generic round brush as a line. If I then reselect the intended brush (or any brush) the line looks correct. I have restarted my computer and Designer with the same result. I have also mistakenly used the advice of Edit/Preferences/miscellaneous/Reset Brushes and now lost all my downloaded brushes. Any suggestions on why my brushes do not look like what I selected until I draw, and have to reselect them? Also, this issue is the same for both mouse and pen tablet Thanks
  8. These are really nice brushes the smoke really compare to my payed pack Thank you
  9. Both infinity Photo & Designer work fine until I try and draw a line with my XP-Pen Drawing monitor. I get strange lines automatically being drawn all over the screen and memory usage skyrockets. This version is unusable. All other of my drawing programs work fine as well as older versions of Photo and Designer.
  10. Where in your link does it say printed books are still outselling ebooks by 11:1? All i see is the word more.
  11. Can you supply some source for the 11:1 please? Waiting till V2.0 for ebook export would be unexceptionable, since that would mean a pay update for something Patrick Connor said that APub would have this feature after it's initial release. I highly disagree with your concepet of when ebook should be introduced. If ebook is not solidly in the planning structure of the program now. It may make it very difficult or impossible to add later. Planning is key to fast solid code.
  12. One really nice feature that I am beta testing for Ultimate eBook Creator is that it checks for "weak words" in your writing which most grammar checkers do not look at. It also counts most used words to see if you need to upgrade your vocabulary. Both are a very handy features to have for yoru books.
  13. @ostonica I have used Ultimate eBook Creator for small projects on Amazon. It worked really well. https://www.amazon.com/Ultimate-eBook-Creator-publishing-iBookstore/dp/B00K7DFZM8#customerReviews
  14. True, but bug crushing is just as important or more so than new features. What I would really like to see is a road map and where the greatly need epub export sits on that list. Over a year ago Patrick said it was in there radar, but will it be yet another year? Two? I would love to hear an official word on epub.
  15. I have never tired Jutoh, but Ultimate eBook Creator is packed with features. And can publish directly to amazon ebook format. I am beta testing the new version that will look for weak words. Which almost no program does. https://www.amazon.com/Ultimate-eBook-Creator-publishing-iBookstore/dp/B00K7DFZM8
  16. I read the reasoning was they needed to draw the line somewhere to get the release out.
  17. Epub has been my #1 request from the start. I would even be happy if they officially put out a roadmap with it on it. My only comfort is that Patrick Connor said we will get it in a future release.
  18. After doing a simple test, I am more worried about starting a complex project and it turning out to be a mess. So I was looking to see if anyone with experience can weigh on if this works or the conversion is not really worth the time.
  19. I was wondering how close to the original document would be if you exported APub files as a .pdf and then converted the .pdf into an epub with a program like Calibre. Would your document look the same as the pdf, even if you had formatting and picutres? Or would it just need so much work that it would not be worth it? Thank for any experience on this topic. I REALLY can't wait for ePub to be added.
  20. Actually, I knew soon as Affinity Publisher as announced that it would not be compatible with PagePlus. I if you look way back in the forms it was asked and answered,. Sorry that you missed it.
  21. I don't understand what 1bit bitmaps is, or why it is so important. But if APub can be used to create print magazines why can't it be used for comic books?
  22. Or why not just start all new project in Affinity Designer, and use PagePlus when needed? MEB pointed out that "You can export PagePlus projec´╗┐ts as PDF or SVG and they should be imported ´╗┐without much loss into Affinity apps."
