  1. I found it! I found it!! I had the "Protect Alpha" checkbox on (see the upper-right area on your workspace. Having that checked on prevents you from painting on a transparent area.
  2. I have the same problem. I assume it is operator error because it only does this intermittently, I just wish I knew what I was doing wrong because this is killing me during my rush work! I made a video to show what I'm doing -- I have covered all the steps right? Oh -- one thing not shown in the video is that there is nothing selected, but the result is the same if I first draw a marquee to select an area of the empty layer. Help!! Here's that video: https://www.dropbox.com/s/3pz1brs1flum6az/cantPaintOnLayer.mp4?dl=0
  3. I am having this issue too -- I must've accidentally turned something on that adds noise, and now I cannot turn it off. AlRed's explanation is awesome, but I don't see anything about switch the Opacity slider to a Noise slider. Help Please? :-/
  4. I use InDesign professionally -- my career is pretty much built around it. I use it for pretty much everything, from 1-page brochures all the way up to 100+page books. I use it all day every day. I used to also use Photoshop and Illustrator, but every month I would get so angry about the Adobe cost: I don't want to RENT my software. This is the reason I became an Affinity user, and I'm very glad i did because now that I'm used to them, I like Affinity Photo and Designer BETTER than the Adobe products. I am looking forward to when Affinity Publisher comes out -- but because my career is dependent on the professional layout features of InDesign, I will not be able to become an Affinity Publisher user unless it has those features. The list of long, but at a minimum it must have detailed and robust style and GREP features. I have never used PagePlus and in fact have never heard of it -- this is why I was asking about the features. Frankly, we should all talk in terms of the features we want.
  5. Hey Sam Neil: I'd love to learn more about what you mean by "taking the existing Page Plus users into account and do not churn out an InDesign clone" -- What are the features in Page Plus that you want to see, and what is it about InDesign that you hope they don't do? I ask because i'm hoping for an InDesign clone.
  6. I am a long time very heavy user of InDesign for everything from brochures and signs to very long books, and I am hoping that Affinity Publisher lives up to the excellence that I've seen in Photo and Designer. Are you soliciting feature ideas for Affinity Publisher? If so, can you direct me to where I can go to peruse what has been suggested and add my two (or more) cents? Are you going to put out a general Beta call, or are you looking for people to sign on to a Beta program? Are you going to put out an Alpha?
