  1. No,no, I mean the file structure should be included or an example file. This definition alone is not clear enough. It is easy to interpret it as the correct answer, if you already have the answer Notice, the basic json structure meets the requirement as well, yet is not right for this application. Anyway, it works and I hope others will find the answer here useful.
  2. Ok, that is interesting Thanks Walt, that does explain a lot. Apparently, we need an array ( [ ] ) in the first level, and then every "row" of our table is an object ( {} ) containing a field:value pair for each cell in the row. Yep, this should definitely be included in documentation for Publisher. Thanks again Walt, helpful as always
  3. These files are so simple, it does not require any complicated files to recreate the problem. The most basic json file should work, even if resulting in a lacking data structure. With CSV you can simply put some words, separate them with commas, and you can see how it is interpreted by Publisher. Then you can make adjustments. In the json case, I don't even know how it is understood by the application. I started with the simplest example: { "Name": "Test", "Mobile": "12345678", "mail": "atsomething" } I have tried making the whole thing an array using "[]" as the top le
  4. This is simply infuriating! I have tried a lot of different JSON structures to get the data, but nothing works. I get the same error as TenTen71 or a "syntax" error, even though my file is fine. If there is some specific structure of a JSON file we should use, could we get the "recipe" in documentation for data merge? If it is not about structure, could someone confirm or deny that the problem exists?
  5. Oh, I do agree! I have just made my first "serious" table in Publisher and it was not an easy task. I hope it gets some more attention, although I recognize there are more pressing matters currently.
  6. Hi guys, I had the same problem - I tried the dictionary files taken from Libre Office but they did not work at all. The language was recognised by AP regardless of where I put them - whether the default location or the additional one you can set up in the preferences - but spell-check did not recognise any words. I found the solution in this thread: It is true that dictionary files from different sources may work differently for some reasons - wrong encoding, some additional content within the file, or even being saved from GitHub "the wrong way". I downloaded the .aff an
  7. Thanks Callum for the info. Unfortunately, the articles deal with the same info I have seen in multiple other websites and tutorials. I do know what CMYK is, and how it differs from RGB, and what Pantone means in this respect... I also know how to prepare material for printing. What I still don't know is why in Affinity the colour workflow gives me different results to those from other applications. Why RGB to CMYK / CMYK to RGB conversion gives the results I would not expect. What would be the right approach to creating a designer file containing a complete set of logo versions suitable for e
  8. Hi guys, some of you might see this as a silly question, but I have worked with Designer for a long time and I still get confused a lot when it goes to working with colour. Do you know of any workflow oriented tutorials? Or maybe we could come up with one. I would be happy to contribute if possible, but I would also need to get some answers myself... I do know the difference between RGB and CMYK, I know what colour profiles are, I know all the basic stuff most tutorials focus on. What I don't know is how these colour formats work in Designer and how they determine our work. For example, regard
  9. I have huge hopes when it goes to indexing, and variables, and references. These functions are used extensively in DTP, yet InDesign has never bothered to deal with them correctly. I would love to see a simple way of marking text as a variable and later pasting it by means of an auto-updating field, or making an index of these variable marks, or self-numbering "works-cited" list, or a reusable template for many instances of one document, each instance differing in several parameters (e.g. a booklet for a particular person with the ability of changing the name once, and automatically filli
  10. Ok guys, thanks for your replies, I think we can close this token - full reinstall of both apps followed by tablet driver cleanup and reinstall worked like a charm No need to change the hardware... cause I wouldn't resign from the soft anyway Fantastic Now just let me buy your publisher I will never use it in my life, but I will proudly keep it on my drive
  11. The new release has fixed the crashing problem, good job. But I have a question about this whole conflict issue. Now my tablet driver does not work in AF nor AD - the cursor moves but no pressure is detected. I assume you can, nor should, do anything about it, but I would appreciate a word of confirmation - should I get rid of the tablet and get a new one if I want to work in affinity (I doubt Huion will update my drivers)?
  12. Mark, weekend is for resting People can just use previous builds for a few days. Keep up the good work.
  13. Guys, I just want to add my case to the basket... After the update Photo just crashes when I click anything within its window. And yes, I do have Huion tablet but I had no problems whatsoever with the previous version. I will just downgrade, but I really hope there is something you can do about it. Would be shitty if I had to waste the tablet...
  14. Yep, it was made in 1.5 I am not sure if I can recreate the bug now in a new file, but I can try if you want
  15. It is not a big problem, but looks like some sort of a minor bug, therefore I thought I might as well inform you of such occurrence. I have attached a file in which the problem is visible. There are 5 circles with text in them. When I open the file, made in AD 1.5, some circles (assets with symbols) have much bigger area than the sum of their content - numbers 5, 3, and 4. Another 5 and 3 are bound by a correctly sized area box. What is interesting, when I make some changes to the text in any of the bugged symbols (e.g. colour or text), all instances of the symbol get repaired - thei
  16. I would not like to take your time, as this is a minor problem for me. I'm more interested in it out of curiosity, as it might happen in the future with some photos of much higher value :) It would be nice to know what to avoid while making pictures to get the best result in HDR... more so, when you realise that panorama in AP is capable of creating almost decent spherical panoramas :) good enough for 3d hdri lighting...
  17. I'm sorry, the link got cut somehow... Here is the full and working one sample.zip
  18. Hi, of course, I will be glad to do so :) sample.zip Photos taken by the same camera with the same settings used to come out pretty nice...
  19. Can I pay you for the 2.0 update already? :) And for Photo too :) You guys bring faith in humanity back :)
  20. Hi, finally the moment has come that I have to ask for your help. Untill now I have always managed not to take your time, but now I am simply stuck. I am trying to make an HDR using 3 perfectly aligned photos of different exposures... Ususally I have no problem in doing that but in this case the result is terribly "posterised". Below are the source photos, and two results - one with all merge options unchecked and one with all options checked (by options I mean "align" and "remove ghosts" etc.). Does anyone have any idea of what might be causing such behaviour?
