  1. I updated the apps on my 12” iPad Pro (2nd gen) yesterday, which included the latest update of the Designer and now I have a situation where the Designer icon is dimmed and text “Cleaning” shown under the icon. This never stops, and I can’t start the app. I can’t even uninstall it, as when a press-hold the icon it comes up with options for loading previous drawings, but nothing happens. how do I reset or uninstall the app when there is no option for uninstall or anything similar? thanks for anybody helping.
  2. I like the Affinity Publisher concept, and already worked on a few brochures and documents. All seems good, but I can't seem to find the word count function. Has it been forgotten, or I just simply can't find it?
  3. Thank you Andy, that is a nice explanation. I created all my work in the Designer, from scratch, and to be honest I never paid attention to the choices of the many grey colour spaces you have. I design colour test charts for CCTV, which I print on professional A2 size Epson ink-jet. In the test chart I have 11-steps grey scale, which goes from black to white in increments of 10%. I expect that the 10-percent increase in whiteness, as seen on the Designer screen, is reproduced in equal steps when printed, but this is not the case. I do understand the different colour spaces betw
  4. Got the update 1.7 today. Thank you. But the discrepancy between various colour spaces have not been fixed yet. Any idea when this will be done?
  5. Thank you Gabe, I already figured this out, and created a new Siemens star with 144 stars. Quite a task, as I wanted some precision, and the angles are not precise enough to align them, but anyway I did it, and thank you again. What about the P.S. question? Any comment on the error in Gray and RGB colour spaces? Thanks.
  6. Sorry Old Bruce, that was in the old days. The new standards are with sine wave stars, which is why I am doing this. I hoped you will address the problem of perspective, if you know the reason for the issue. Thanks anyway.
  7. I believe there is a bug with the Perspective tool. I use both Designer and Photo since its inception, and I am happy with what I can do with them, although there are some limitations, and the first one that I need it fixed is the perspective tool Here is what I have found: I am trying to design a Siemens Star, for the purpose of producing our test chart. Since it is not possible to create a triangle which changes the gradation from white to black proportional to the distance from the centre, I thought I found a way to create first just simple vertical strips with linear gradation,
  8. Hi Affinity team. I am using Affinity for Mac, both the Designer and Photo, almost full time now. I have happily uninstalled Adobe software and found I can live without the dreaded Illustrator and I can create my artwork much better with the Designer. I am still learning the Affinity Photo, but I am happy I don't depend on Adobe's monthly payment. One important but missing thing in the Designer is the measuring tool. I design a variety of things, including test charts (as included in this as attachment) which require precision and details. To achieve the precision I need t
  9. Hi MEB and others, I have been working with NIK for some time on PS, and using Affinity Photo since day one, but without the NIK collection. Due to exceeding charges Adobe is increasing constantly, decided to give PS a complete flick. I am now trying to install NIK on the Affinity, but despite me reading a lot of forums, and doing what the simple instructions tell you (AP=>Preferences=>Add plugin, from the newly installed Applications/NIK Collection folder, on my Mac) I never get the AP telling me that the plugins are detected. I do get to the point of restarting the
  10. Thank you for the response, I will remember that action. Kind regards, VDamjanovski
  11. In my original installation of the Affinity Designer (v.1.3.2) I somehow lost the colour picker and layers docker on the right hand side. I could not find anywhere any information how to bring the docker back. I defaulted/reset the custom settings, thinking that maybe I have done something without noticing, but I still did not get the docker back. I had the normal tools on the left hand side, and on the top bar, but the docker with Colour, Swt, Brs, Styles, Layers, Effects, etc. was simply not there. Watching some of the video tutorials about how you work with layers, I saw the tutor was ref
  12. 1. Would it be possible in one of the next updates to make the rulers show metric divisions in ten sub-divisions. For example, if I am using a metric rulers, the divisions between cm for example, are not 10, but 5. This makes it very difficult and awkward to measure correctly dimensions using the rulers. 2. Could you also make the zero coordinate of the ruler system be flexible, and to be moved to wherever you want to measure within a drawing. Something like PhotoShop and CorelDraw have. Not having 10 subdivisions in the metric system (the first issue above) it makes almost impossible to p

  14. Да Петар, Македонец сум, ама живеам и работам во Сиднеј. Се надевам работите таму се подобруваат. Поздрав.
  15. Wow, I cannot believe how many Mac users are still running CorelDraw on Parallels, like I do. Really guys from Affinity, you might be onto something really unique for the illustrators if you make it possible to import CDR files into your Designer. Adobe Illustrator for Mac is the least intuitive and the least capable drawing program I have encountered (and I have tried so many). It can not even have multi-pages drawing, like Corel, it can not rasterise if your drawing is A3 format for high resolution printing - it says not enough memory (!?!) even though I have 16GB. Affinity, plea
