  1. Hi Nathan R, do you mean by "downloading a font" that you have installed it as well? If it is installed correctly, the font list within Designer should show you the font (e.g. create a new document, select the art text tool or the frame text tool and Designer will display all available fonts in the context tool bar). If you can't fin "Orbitron" in there, something has gone wrong with the installation of that font. Is the font available with any other app? Best, Volker
  2. Fascinating! Now it works. Thanks a lot, GarryP! But why isn't the option turned on by default once you click on a text style? I mean, what sense does make a table of contents without page numbers? Cheers, Volker
  3. Hi there! Somehow I don't get the table of contents to work properly in a document... The headings are displayed but the page numbers are not. I am sure it is me doing something wrong. But what? In order to demonstrate my issue I've created a sample document (see below, made with APub It comprises a couple of articles with just two text styles each: one for the heading, one for the body copy. When I insert the toc in an empty text frame I get a list of all articels as expected. But no page numbers at all (see screenshot). I've tried to insert extra tab stops and changed their position but to no avail. Any ideas what I'm doing wrong here? Thanks, Volker toc-test.afpub
  4. Hi Gonzo, I've just exported some shapes to PNG. But the results looks totally fine at my end. Perhaps you set up your document initially at a low dpi (e.g. 72dpi) which causes low-res PNGs. In this case either change your document to 300dpi or increase the desired width/height in pixel in the export dialoge. Best, Volker
  5. Hi chapalote! That sounds strange. How does the assets panel look like now? Does it still list the categories created by you? Or is it just blank? In case you have ever exported your assets: Does a re-import work either on your desktop or laptop?
  6. Yes, it crashes at my end, too. In all three apps (latest beta builts), without any warning.
  7. To participate in the "beta program" is quite easy: Just go to the respective beta forum within this Affinity forum and download the latest beta release. It is called a "public customer beta". So, as long as you have purchased AD, AP or APub you can install and test any of the beta apps alongside with the retail version of the three apps. Just for your information: The retail version and the beta do not interfere. They are installed in different folders and don't share any individual settings. Serif has published some bug fixes already. But you need to install the respective beta app to test whether or not they solve the trouble for you.
  8. Hi marfbum, I'm afraid the support team won't be able to help as your description lags some vital information. In order to help you swifly please give them as many information as possible. Just follow the link Sean P posted above.
  9. 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
  10. 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).
  11. 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.
  12. 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
  13. 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/
  14. 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
