  1. same. i got angry and solved by Pixelmator Pro. the manual said nothing so searched the forum because i couldnpt think to be the only one in the world with this huge problem.. which is being discussed since 2016! NB: i have the Affinity suite, but too often i think there are still some big UX problems ciao
  2. hi Mark.. we already can write complex book with Markdown -> export perfect PDF with Latex, without using big apps like Publisher see for example my workflow: https://github.com/StefanoCecere/markdown_pandoc_book_template
  3. so, Designer and Photo Persona are embedded into Publisher, right? and activated only if it finds the application installed, right?
  4. i really need to link to pages, and the two linked frames is not very helpful for hundreads of links. a simple "anchor page number" field would be perfect.. thank you!
  5. i discovered it can be done automatically.. and works quite well! see
  6. it's more than 3 years that it asked: why when i press ctrl+cmd+I for image resize, the first field of the resize form doesn't get automatically selected? you force me to press TAB to select it (even worse use the mouse) why if i am in Flood Fill Tool, i can't pick a colour by pressing any ctrl/shift/cmd key? i have to manually change to the Colour Picker, pick a color, and then go back to Flood Tool why when i open an image it doesn't open at 100% (but at 105%!??!) why if i select crop, i can't have a modifier to constrain to 1:1 (square).. or if i manually select it.. and come back later to crop i lose the selection? and many many others oddities like these i really don't understand.. there are bare minimum UX that every (at least in the Mac world) app has since 20 years... i would really like to use Affinity apps (i have all 3) but keep going back to Pixelmator that at least has a "normal" UX hope to see some improvements by 2.0
  7. hi i can't see how make Publisher add or remove chapter pages, say for example that i change font size and margins, making the document need more o less pages to fit it well. Is it something that we should care manually? thank you
  8. i'm a pro mac user since 1990. but after the $999 monitor stand and the overpriced macbook pros, i feel i'm going Linux soon. especially now that Unity (the popular game dev engine) has now a Linux version Serif if you are about to be a Linux player... i'd be happy to re-buy all the Affinity apps!
  9. well .. if i wasn't developer and mac user since 30 years, i know that even the most complex machines must be easy to understand, and show the real expected behaviors as default... if i want to resize the image, it's obvious that i want, since i need, to input a width.. you don't show me an empty form where i HAVE to click a second time to input a value. i want to apply a filter.. i don't care, i don't want to know, if the Greyscale filter is destructive or not.. i want that to be applied in 2 seconds. and if it's descritive, you'll show a warning before applying it. or you mark somehow the destructive one to differenciate from the realtime one. it's simply basic UX design. and i think that Affinity has a lot to improve in that (otherwise we'll go back to Pixelmator for simple things, or to Adobe for the complex ones)
  10. damn i spent 30 minutes trying all of them.. it was very hidden eh! THANKS!! (i know that Affinity can do anything.. but too often it's too difficult to know how to do it, and simpler apps are easier
  11. i really can't understand: i do CMd+I / C to resize the image or canvas.. we got the resizing form but the focus isn't on the first field.. i have to manually press tab to select a field, or even worse use the mouse. press C to crop.. ok the mode is set to unconstrained by default, but why there isn't ANY possibility to keep the current proportions? (using cmd,ctrl,shift, alt, for example) i'm mostly in the move tool. but with this tool i always see violet rects around each layer/object.. there isn't a command to turn them off, but i have to change tool.. why do we need this? so annoying! i want to have an image in gray scale/black and white... after spending 3 minutes in the Filters menu.. i discover that that basic feature is in the Adjustment panel.. how did you split the effects in the two so different areas of the app? why Auto Levels is in the Filters menu, but the Levels filter is in the Adjustment panel? i really try to love Affinity apps (i have all), but too often open Pixelmator to do the simplest things because i know that it makes features where i expect them to be! (PS: i am a Mac user since 1991, started with Photoshop 2.0) ciao
  12. my two cents for WebP export, now that Mozilla has decided to support it
  13. Firefox 65 (release on 2019-01-29) will support WebP
