    Stock panel - "connection failed"

    Yes, can confirm: Pexels is not working here, too.
  2. Hi, just tried to recreate the issue by following your recipe step by step. But it works fine here at my end, no issues with backspace or caps. Could you share the document shown in your video? Cheers, Volker
  3. I' agree: It looks broken. I guess the input field for the corners just doesn't get updated when the shape is resized. Apart from that the corner tool seems to work fine (at least for me).

    bug line

    Hi, without the original file it is hard to find the cause of the problem. However, two hints: If you use px as unit for your overall design than you better stick to it when defining the line width. pt is a typographic unit. Its actual representation in px depends on the document settings. In Illustrator you used a rectangle while you used the rounded rectangle in Designer. This might explain differences as well. Best, V.
  5. Hallo, während Sunny Burnett Probleme mit Affinity Photo hat, hatte ich die immer mit Photoshop. Weil Photoshop ein schlechtes Programm ist? Mitnichten. Ich war nur vorher anderes gewohnt. Und so dürfte es auch hier sein: Affinity macht manches anders als Photoshop. Ob besser oder schlechter, sei dahingestellt. Wer jahrzehntelang BMW gefahren ist, tut sich am Angang im Umgang mit einem Mercedes schwer ("Huch, wo ist denn den Handbremse geblieben?"). Wir haben einfach eintrainierte Abläufe, die plötzlich nicht mehr in gewohnter Weise funktionieren. Ging mir genauso. Da hilft nur: Viel probieren und viel lesen. Vielleicht stellt man am Ende ja fest: Beide Programme sind effizient - jedes auf seine Weise. Best, Volker
  6. Hi Jedah, is it possible that you run some third party software on your computer that interferes with Affinity? There is a list of apps available that are known for causing trouble: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/91870-issues-caused-by-third-party-windows-software/
  7. Hi Ralek, does it happen with just one specific file? Or are all files affected? Sharing the file in question would be great. Cheers, Volker
  8. Hi Sean! Yes, the entire menu option disappeared (and the customized shortcut didn't work as well). Next time it happens I will get you a screenshot.
  9. Hello! In the past days I encountered an error that I had never noticed before: After working for hours with several documents consisting of about 10-15 artboards with individual column guides, the option to show/hide the column guides from the view menu disappeared several times. I had to restart Affinity Designer in order to get them back working. I have no precise recipe to reproduce this error. But perhaps somebody else has encountered it, too. One thing I do remember is, that I dragged an element on the canavas (outside an artboard), saw the colomn guides populating the whole canvas for a brief moment before they disappeared again. Afterwords I wasn't able to switch them on and off anymore. Cheers, Volker
  10. Hi Tony, the file "cldfit.sys" belongs to the OneDrive-Service of Windows. A recent update of Windows can cause some trouble. Walt.Farell created a post on that topic last autumn: Cheers, Volker

    Baseline Grid ist not displayed, correctly

    Hi! That is even easier to archieve: Just set "Snap to baseline grid" (in the snapping options, see screenshot below). Best, Volker

    Baseline Grid ist not displayed, correctly

    Hi! There are two baseline grids available in AFPub: one at the page level and the other one at the text frame level. In order to get your text aligned with the baseline grid here you need to set one for the text frame (you'll find the button in the context menu bar). See screenshot below. Cheers, Volker
  13. Hi! All Affinity apps lag the capability to crash the system as they do not run in system mode. The crash is caused by a system driver as indicated by the error message. In most cases the display driver is to blame. A Google search for the file name will help. Cheers!
  14. Hi, by any chance could you share either the original .afpub file or another .afpub that demonstrates the issue? Would help to get to the root of the problem. Cheers, Volker
  15. Hi Alphacolor, hard to tell what might be the cause of the issue by just investigating a screenshot. Could you share the file in question (or a similar one) with us?
