  1. With the duplicate the blend modes do work. I'm not sure if I remember that correctly, but if I'm not mistaken, the blend modes also did work with a single layer in 1.7.3 and earlier versions.
  2. Just updated to Affinity Photo using Windows 7. I can't apply any of the blend modes from the layers panel anymore. Can somebody confirm this?
  3. If I choose RGB-16 bit instead if RGB-8 bit in 'Export settings' > 'Pixel Format', the file size for a screenshot export shrinks for example from 89 kb from to 21 kb. Maybe I misunderstand something, but shouldn't that be the other way round? See forum topic Export as png - image file size. (Sorry, accidentally posted it in the Beta section)
  4. Ok, thank you for the answers. I will miss that feature. With it it was very easy to position text in text frames surrounded by lines/frames and in multi column pages with embedded pictures etc.
  5. In PagePlus I frequently used the 'Column Blinds' for fine-tuning brochures. Is there a similar feature in Affinity Publisher somewhere? Can't find it in the Beta.
  6. Hi jk1,

    Could you please tell me if you're still getting scripting problems with the Publisher Help file on build or later.

      Hello Andy,

      Sorry for my late reply. Apparently I didn't have the forum notifications enabled and stumbled over your question only one minute ago after posting a new question.

      Yes, I still get the scripting problems when I click the Affinity Publisher 'Help' button or use the ''F1' key to open the help window. This also happens in my copy of Affinity Photo I've installed both on Windows 7 (I don't like Windows 10).

      I wonder if it is related to my language configuration. I'm located in Germany, but have the en-US language version of Windows 7 installed. However, my Affinity software is also installed in English.


  7. I've been using PagePlus since version 3 and still use PagePlux X6 (didn't update to newer versions because it does all I need) and have accumulated a lot of PagePlus X6 documents. Of course I wonder why a new product comes with import filters for foreign file formats, but without Serif's own format for backward compability. Just tried to import a pdf document created with PagePlus X6 into the public beta running under Win 7. Works mainly ok, but currently images are replaced by image placeholders and 'replacing' the images adds them to the placeholder position, but doesn't use the correct width and height respectively keep the aspect ratio. Any chance that xml files (PagePlus ppp files renamed to zip and then extracted to xml) can be imported?
