  1. Hi Chris, At work at the moment. Will do if it happens again. From what I remember I shifted to Photo persona, CTRL clicked on my pixel layer, to select it, then I clicked on the contextual tab 'Refine', did my edits, then selected 'Add selection to new layer' in the refine options, this was when it crashed. Maybe the CTRL clicking to select the layer, then going into refine is what is causing this, instead of simply selecting a new area, then refine etc the usual way (with no previous CTRL clicking selection).
  2. Loaded up Affinity Publisher, have an image selection, go to Photo Persona and then select the image, Refine Mask, edit the image to fine tune the masking, select 'Add as new layer', program crashes out. Just happened twice.
  3. In the same way that Adobe (pantomime boooooooooo) does their acredited certification for Photoshop/Illustrator etc, does Affinity have any plans in the future to do their own 'Affinity Certified' certificate? You could have a foundation, intermediate and advanced level. I would most definitely be interested!
  4. Master Pages - around 7:29, he drags the the Master Page onto a sheet, but it's only showing the left side of the Master Page. How do you drag the right side of the Master Page to paste onto a sheet?
  5. Thanks. Just getting my head around this Publisher software. Also thanks. I'll have a play around on Publisher.
  6. Thanks. Still not working. I highlight the section (left side), try drag it onto right page, I still just get the right page. Likewise, darg the right side of the master onto a left facing page, still only get the left master page?!
  7. I appreciate you're trying to help, but my query is specifically about Affinity Publisher.
  8. I was expecting to see some indie vector text warping software for a tenner. $60? I purchased both Affinity Photo and Designer combined, for not much more. I'm only just starting to use Affinity Publisher, looks like it does vector text on a path, but haven't experiemented with it yet. The golden question is - can it do the Netflix logo? Affinity Publisher full product being released today - rubs hands. It's been nestled in my pre order account for weeks.
  9. - What he said. Again, please Affinity, can you include an extensive vector text manipulation tool? It's too far gone now to want a basic one. I can only hope you're working on a full bells and whistles one with the kitchen sink thrown in for good measure as I speak.
  10. What Ballyshannon said...
  11. What farukkk said. I'm in the middle of something now, vectorising an image. All I need to do is slightly warp some text. Now I have to try and find my old Adobe Illustrator log in details and install the dreaded Adobe software. Hate the Adobe Suite, and I still cannot get my head around Affinity not releasing a basic text warp tool for Designer. I've been reading the original post, and it goes back to 2015. This isn't any hate on Affinity, love the software, but I cannot see how anyone doing any graphic design can not go back to Illustrator for this one tool. It's such a staple tool for any sort of logo design. Boggles the mind why it isn't a priority!?
  12. Is anyone else getting really long waiting times to simple export a file as PNG? It used to be more or less instant, but it's been like this on my desktop for a while. At work, I installed Affinity Photo, on a lesser machine, and it's far quicker?!

    Affinity Photo Export to PNG Lag!?

    Regardless of size. Takes an age. Like I said, on a lesser machine it's quicker. Maybe I just need a fresh install.
  14. Gran Turismo Sport now allow users to import SVG files for the in-game livery editor. The only thing is, the SVG file has to be below 15Kb in memory, which is pretty tiny. It's a nice challenge though, to chop away as much unneeded information as possible, but to still get a good quality image. I created this vector file using Affinity Designer, which I then exported as the SVG file. I then used the livery editor to give my bog standard go-kart a new design. The Gran Turismo screenshots are in game. I'm just showing them to illustrate how the decal design looks on the go-kart!
  15. Hey Jarentino, search under the hashtag #nintendo #supermariokart #johnnyjawbone and it should come up. Haven't played GT lately as I've been working but it's a cool game. Ongoing, free DLC being released continuously!

    Conical Gradient Doodling (AD)

    Excellent. Just what I was looking for. Thanks for attaching the Styles!
  17. I select multiple layers to group. I expect to see some sort of option I can simply click to group, but I can't see anything. I'm using the Work Book, and a 'group' option is supposed to come up on the Contextual Toolbar, but there is no option to group. Am I missing something? Edit: right click, and I see the option CTRL G for group. Going by the Work Book, should this option be showing up on the Contextual Toolbar?!? Just curious.
  18. Just positioning text using the transform window. Crashing multiple times. This program is becoming more and more unstable. Vector drawing, and now simple positioning of text. Multiple crashes doing the most simple of things. Really starting to lose patience with Affinity Designer.
  19. No. Just simple text transform window manipulating.
  20. The documentation states that this works for 'fill attributes'. But whenever I draw a shape, change opacity then click the 'Sychronise defaults from this selection', the opacity always reverts back to 100%. Why does it not store opacity information? It makes vector drawing a real pain.
  21. Thanks Toltec/R C-R, Understanding it more now. Yes, if I set the opacity as per Toltec said, then yes I can synchronise settings. The method I was using before would be to draw out a shape, use the number keys to quickly set the opacity and either turn stroke on or off, then synchronise settings on that selection, which does not work. Using the numerical keys only modifies the opacity in the Layers tab I can now see, and does not affect the opacity in the colour section. Got it now.
  22. It's text typed using the Text tool. I was trying multiple fonts. The crash happened multiple times when I was adjusting the transform box. I don't have a file as it was just something quick I was doing, using the built in AD tools.
