  1. Here is what it shows... With this I can paste into Affinity Photo using NEW FROM CLIPBOARD.
  2. Indesign preferences has a clipboard handling setting but it only allows you to specify PDFand/or Indesign Interchange formats. I am using InsideClipboard to view the clipboard content. If I use Adobe Photoshop to open an image and copy it to the clipboard the Affinity Photo NEW FROM CLIPBOARD is finally available and I can paste the image into Affinity Photo. So, Affinity Photo must not accept PDF clipboard items at least those from Indesign. Seems to me that the developers could fix this problem. PDF is a very common format. Maybe more testing to conclusively prove this later... Again, than you. John
  3. I do not own Designer. Regarding the clipboard the formats available on the clipboard are PDF and InDesignInterchange
  4. I want to say "thank you" to everyone who has replied. For the past 6 months i continue to use Photoshop because i am unable to use the NEW FROM CLIPBOARD. I have the most current version of Affinity Photo for Windows (version At least that is what I recently updated to. I was hoping my problem had been fixed. I tried the Paste Special but I first need to create a new document and then can "paste special" into it. My NEW FROM CLIPBOARD is always grayed out. I have never seen it otherwise. How it worked with Indeign and Photoshop, I select an Indesign layout and copy it. The COPY placed it on the Windows Clipboard. I open Photoshop and and click on NEW and the dialog that pops up already has sized the new Photoshop document to the exact size from the clipboard because i specify the clipboard as the Preset. This all sets the color space (CMYK) and dpi and the transparent background. I say OK, which created the new Photoshop document sized exactly right. I then go to EDIT/PASTE and paste the document into photoshop. Now i can flatten the document or do whatever i need to within Photoshop. It paste the item as a smart object. I'd like to do this exact same procedure within Affinity Photo. But, my NEW FROM CLIPBOARD is ALWAYS grayed out. I am willing to uninstall and reinstall Affinity Photo if you think that would help. I am merely trying to get away from Adobe. Any ideas? Here is a snap shot of my Affinity Photo showing the grayed out NEW FROM CLIPBOARD just after copying an item to the clipboard in Indesign.
  5. Yes, I have the windows version. Months have gone by and still no ability for NEW FROM CLIPBOARD. I'd like to switch from Adobe Photoshop but... this feature is important .Affinity - can you help?
  6. I have version of Affinity Photo. I's like to copy a design in Adobe Indesign and create a new document using Affinity Photo just like I do using Adobe Photoshop. But, my "New from Clipboard" is always grayed out" Any idea why? No problem doing this with Photoshop.
