  1. Sounds like you were inserting an instance of a symbol inside another instance of the same symbol, which was resulting in the software attempting to create an infinitely recursing structure. When you drag an instance of a symbol from Symbols panel to the canvas, ensure sure you don't have Insertion Mode set to Inside if another instance of that symbol is currently selected. Insertion Mode can be set at top right of the app's main toolbar and in the Layers menu.
  2. Instead of duplicating the actual files, drag aliases (on macOS) or shortcuts (in Windows) of the files into the project folder. An alias or shortcut is a small file which contains a pointer to the source file. The source file is opened when you "open" the alias/shortcut. On macOS: opt+cmd+drag to create an alias. On Windows: alt+drag to create a shortcut.
  3. No, Tone Mapping persona in AP is a destructive filter.
  4. You can use the Transform panel to rotate an Artboard by 90 degrees to switch between portrait and landscape. First ensure "Lock Children" is enabled in context toolbar of Move Tool if you do not want the Artboard's content from also being rotated. (The clockwise and anticlockwise rotation commands and their buttons in the AD main toolbar ignore the child lock and centre of rotation.)
  5. First, when your document is opened there is a small pixel selection (at right edge) which needs to be deselected before proceeding. Delete the Recolour Adjustment layer. The edges of your text are anti-aliased by colour rather than transparency. If you want orange text with edges that are anti-aliased by transparency, do the following: invert the text layer so the text becomes white with coloured edges shift-cmd-click the text layer's thumbnail to get a luminosity selection hide the text layer Layer > New Fill Layer with the required orange colour deselect the pixel selection project-management orange.afphoto
  6. I don't know if it'll help with your particular case, but you can drag another instance of the Symbol from the Symbols panel to some space on the canvas (or outside the canvas, if you enable visibility of objects that are off the canvas) and edit that instance to manipulate the inaccessible ones, and then delete or hide it.
  7. In the Performance section of AP Preferences, ensure Display is not set to Software. In the Assistant Options for Develop, you can choose between Apple's raw engine and Serif's raw engine. I find display refresh with the Apple engine is about 10 times faster than with the Serif engine.
  8. I'm on Mac. Just done loads of repeated tests and I'm seeing two different behaviours: if I press P to activate Pen Tool and then press P again, the previous tool becomes active. however, if I click on the Pen Tool button and then press P, the Pen Tool remains active.
  9. Fixed in the 1.6.7 GM Seed. Thanks!

  11. I see what you mean: power duplicate just duplicates in place instead of by an offset after an arrow key nudge. A bug, in my opinion. A workaround is to use the Transform panel instead of the arrow keys. For example, if your offset for each duplicate is to be 1 document unit (mm or pixel, etc.) to the right: select the initial object cmd+j to duplicate in place enter "+=1" (without quotes) in the X field of the Transform panel cmd+j, cmd+j, cmd+j ...
  12. You're right. The join operation did absolutely nothing in that video. The only reason the two nodes were being dragged around together at the end of the video was that they were both selected.
  13. In the brush's context toolbar, make sure Flow and Opacity are greater than zero, the Blend Mode is Normal (or another that will lighten when white is applied) and Protect Alpha is disabled. Also ensure that Opacity is not zero in the Colour panel, otherwise fully transparent white will behave as black when painting a mask.
  14. Look at the bottom left of the Layers panel. There's a toggle for making members of all Layers or only members of the selected Layer editable. I think you'll find that it is enabled on the Mac Pro and disabled on the iMac.
  15. Clicking the Blend Ranges button when no layer is selected provokes a crash. Clicking in the empty area of Layers Panel when Blend Ranges window is open provokes a crash. Clicking in the empty area of Layers Panel after Blend Ranges window has been closed provokes a crash.
