  1. +1 for this Save custom workspaces Sync settings between suite apps For example if I save presets and a studio layout in AF DESIGNER I would like to access these same things from Publisher. It's a little annoying to have to setup up every export preset twice. And rearrange all my panels every time a new version launches.
  2. I am sure just with the release of Publisher, 1.7 for the entire suite, that running a cost related release with any of the products just after I bunch of us bought publisher may raise eyebrows. This is an eco-system not a stand-alone app so they're probably have an upgrade fee when the make the big v2 jump and there will be a lot more than just PSD text edibility. And I'm sure many of us will repurchase the entire suite every few years without blinking twice, given how reliable and open they are about support. I feel like they know what they're doing. Although you sparked an interesting thought, modular feature expansions might be really cool. On one-hand you can finance specific feature development, which actually sounds fantastic, but if this ever came to the detriment of the users and the suite performance, functionality and growth it could have a slippery side. For example, I use Blender quite a lot, and the add-on market is actually quite amazing, and I'm sure a lot of people would like It if most software had the same approach. At the same time I would throw a fit if I felt like every feature is another micro-transaction.
  3. I'll run through it a few times and see what kinds of results I can get, thanks for the advice.
  4. Hey @John Rostron, @Fixx pretty much nailed the technical description. I use it on my concept art to blend edges for certain artwork, here is a sample I used it on. It's mixed in with a few other things I use to create this style of mine, subtly used but still important for me. Wish I had more samples but NDA means waiting for the projects I worked on to actually release (and some projects have schedules that span years of course) So I still swap to Photoshop occasionally to use it. I've been really eager to make a hard swap, and I've gone as far as recreating custom brushes and learning the new workflow (which I love btw, it's way more adaptable) - but I'll still swap back every now and then for 1 or 2 tools. It is a very niche tool, so I understand it might not be a priority, but you never know unless you ask.
  5. Another time Export editable text to PSD would be such a valuable function.
  6. So this one is a bit of a niche filter, but it is one of my favourites (it does an excellent job at breaking up hard edges, and helps bind layers together beautifully if you're going for the grainy look but don't want to introduce standard grain/noise) Especially when photobashing for concept art, "I use it on the daily".
  7. @MEB This also just solved the main issue I was having, as I like to setup templates for proofing. I agree with @HenrikMay I also suggest the tool in the toolbar use this feature natively instead, and have a button in the dialogue box to commit it if they want to use the tool destructively. So by default I think it will save most people from having a headache. If we could get this feature to work with liquify as well it will open the windows for people to start using mock-up packs. which could save many designers a lot of time on presentation documents for things like curved surfaces etc.
  8. Possibly, I don't know why that didn't occur to me. Been ages since I struggled with that in photoshop so it feels like a distant memory
  9. I just experienced this problem for the first time. I tested it out in Affinity Designer and Publisher and both could not export it. I incrementally deleted each object until it would export, the suspect object was a standard square shape with a color fill. The strange thing is that Affinity Designer thought the box was a text layer. Would you like me to upload the file somewhere or have enough files been submitted to review this big/issue?
  10. Thanks for the effort guys. I managed to recreate the file, so luckily I can submit it (luckily I exported a PDF, which I used to copy the text) It was stored on an external drive. Hopefully that won't happen to me again. I now incrementally save more copies as back-ups anyway. If I experience the issue again I'll be sure to update it in this thread. Otherwise I've had flawless performance and I'm glad I have this application.
  11. Hey Jon, thank yo for the speedy response. I uploaded the document for you to look at. I've already begun recreating the document from scratch, just in case It's really strange, The app hasn't crashed once .
  12. Using affinity publisher official release 1.7.1 Made some minor changes to a document (mostly spelling corrections) and tried to open the document again a few days later. POP-UP: Failed to open document <file path> The file appears to be corrupted. I've tried opening the document with Affinity Designer & Affinity Photo and had the same message. Is there a work-around I can use to recover my document? It's 36 page document I have to submit today.
  13. Bump, editable text on export should be a priority to help studios migrate. I'm still forced to use Photoshop in many situations because I have to pass open files to team members who prefer Photoshop because the text is rasterised and they would no longer be able to contribute to the project otherwise. This is an issue with the desktop versions as well.
  14. I did this with logos before, it works as a temporary fix. But this feature does not work at all with embedded jpg, png or other 'export' files.
  15. +1 For this feature. I am really missing this
