  1. Did i read this just in the new Photo update ? I Think theres a fix, that 32 bit images now will be imported with linear ? so one of our steps in your tutorial Video wouldnt be needed any more, which improves workflow furter more..
  2. greaaat... thats the information, Users need to see the quality of Affinity... thanks for this..
  3. 1. easy to do and allready halfway implemented: shortcut to deselect pixelmasks from the Layerstack... affinity allready put in the short cut to cmd+shift+lmb click on a Layericon to select ! Additive ! like in Photoshop layer masks. So you dont have to add them one by one in the spare channels... but to deselect from a selecttion the shortcut is still missing.. 2. embedd linked pdf files, but give the option to link the rasterised version also whithout loosing the link to the original pdf file... this would ease the workflow for thousends of Architects.. they never need the option to tweek single lines in theire floreplan CAd to pdf prints, they import to photo... its just done by far easier inside the cad applicatieon... but still an imported pdf from a cad file should be linked not only embeded, also when it is rasterised. 3. still speedimprovements for large documents needed... here photoshop still excels over affinity photo.. dont know wasnt it told, affinity is still working on gpu speed booosts ?
  4. Hi Joachim.. Well thanks.. Originaly, i was asking for the textstyles.. I got a Document with about 70 pages, and about 20 Textstyles... But i am not sure if all of them are used.. so i just wanted to clean it up, and go on with only the used Textstyles that where left.. I originaly created the Document , from saving it out from another Document, where i had to use many more styles.. so to get all neded styles, this is a good way.. but now it seams you have to pay very good attention to not delete the wrong style.. so an automatic search for unused styles would be very good
  5. Joachim_L, I think i had taken the wrong name.. i asked for styles, not for textstyles.. Styles are something else... see the screenshot...
  6. Well MEB, if its not possible, we should move this to the wishlist section
  7. Ah.. Well maybe i get here something wrong.. what i mean are these styles.. The "Text Styles" they differ from document document..
  8. Hi, is there an easy way to get rid of styles in a final document, that i dont want anymore ? my problem is, in a looong document, i am not sure, which styles are not used anymore. So is there any easy way to flush all of the unused one away , fast and easey ?
  9. One Question about this.. When you import Text from other documents , using a Style with the same name, and exact same settings, as an allready existing Style, Does Publisher nowtice this , and doesnt double the style ? ore does it get confusing now.. Or, does warn for douplicated style names and so on.... How intelligent is this funktion ? Any experiances allready ?
  10. Yes.. You can force Publisher to prefere Linked... But "linking" seems to be wired in Publisher... The files still are stored inside of the document which leads to enormous size of the document if you save it , even when prefere linked is enabled and all images ... are "linked", because they are not realy linked.. Linked untill now only means.. that the still embeded files have to save a "link" to the original files, to notice, if they change.. in that case you can exchange them to the new files.. But still the data get stored to the document, which leads to big filesizes... What do you think... I think here the indesign concept is far better..
  11. Well as you said, you dont know the idml format ? This a is format that Indesign can export also to alow transfer of documents in differing indesign programms.. I used this some time to get documents from a more advanced indesign version to an older one, and it worked nearly perfect. So to say.. IDML would be enough as an import format. BUT !!!! We also need the possibility to export Publisher Formats to IDML.. this is very much needed, because very often we have to cooperate with the outer world.. and the outer World is dominated by evil So please also make export of idml possible.. I Think most of us wouldnt have considered to look at Affinity photo too, if it hadnt been able to import and also export psd files..
  12. I would like to see this too.. obvious a very smal but helpful feature
  13. Well.. This is just what you are forced to, if you make Architectural Visualisations.. You just have to combine complex parts of reality, but also have to delete, change, mask, and formost.. you have to try to stay flexible as long as you can, because architects develope their ideas, while you show them what rey realy have been drawing.. He.. you tiny .. renderfreak... make big windows... make smal windows... make them spare above three rows.. no.. go back to two... aaah.... and the tree in the backround.. could you just rotate the leaves in the lower part about 12 degree to south... why didnt you see this ... we just changed the stone.. we have made the whole building round... come on.. you still have the night to chane it... lol.. Tell you.. beeing a 3ds max guru... was a great time for years.. but i am glad now to be part of the it department and teach things like affinity.. 3d.. will stay with me for fun.
  14. There have lately been some changes to the shortcuts toggle ... as written in the announcement for the actual beta: Changed tool shortcuts (optionally, default is off) to allow SHIFT to loop through grouped shortcuts (e.g. SHIFT+B to loop through brush tools) so do i get this right ? This function is optional, and i have to turn it on at first ? If so, how and where do i have to turn it on exactly, to test it ?
  15. Hi everyone.. For international architectural competitions, architectural Companys have to submit an application in which they also prove the qualifications of their employees. For this purpose, we have a document for each employee with his or her curriculum vitae and qualifications, which are supplied with the application. These documents are all structured in the same way. Would it be possible to have these documents filled in automatically via the connection to tables or databases, so that the colleagues in business development do not have to create a new publisher document every time ? Of course we would have to migrate from Indesign to Publisher. Without an import function, at least of the IDML format, the conversion to Affinity Publisher would require an extremely high effort which is difficult to justify. 1. are connections for the import of databases that can automatically fill a document with content being considered? and 2. when is there hope for the import of IDML files ?

  16. Hi MEB... You just answered , while i tried to explain workflow that we use in the next answer.. Thats great to hear.. and as you see in my screenshot, Options to organise, and fast select such masks in big documents are very important.. Thanks again..
  17. Yes Ron P. It Does. But this isnt realy what we need here.. because it deselects everything. ! Imagine, you have for example 20 Masks of seperated Trees, you positioned in differing places on your Document and also in different Groups in your Layerpannel, because some of the trees are in foreground others in Backround. While additive like shown above you can select all of them, often, you click on a mask you didnt want to select and now can see that the selection isnt what you want.. In Photoshop i think its cmd+alt+shift click on the mask to deselect this one wrong mask from your selection.. Sounds as a minor problem, and realy, to be able to additive select many pixelmasks is more important.. But still in such a workflow, wou would have to do the selection again from the beginning, if there wasnt any way to deselect the last step... ill put a screenshot to show you how in some cases our layerstack in Visualisations for our Architects can look like , and youll see, this shortcut could ease the pain if you mistakenly selected the wrong mask..
  18. Well i installed just the newest Beta of Affinity Photo .1.7 0231, and looked at the Changes.. Affinity even didnt mention it there i think.. But very very helpful and important for me was a very tiny shortcut missing... additiv in the Layermanager select pixelselections.. So Serif listens to us.. Shortcut is in German: STRG+Shift+ Leftmousebutton click.. / or : cmd+shift+ LMB klick.. this tiny shortcut will reduce selectiontimes on big documents with many masks where you all the time have to select many layers, (in Visualisation compositings of Architectural visualisations for example) , enormously.. So many many thanks.. But ! i cant find a way to deselect from a Selection.. this is still missing, maybe this could be implemented too ?
  19. Well it realy depends to the Task that you have to do... i had to deal with some 2GB Images, created out of an Architectural Visualisation Process.. Splatterd with dotzens and dozens of Masks, effects, Layer.. (about 100 and more) and you Need them for Architectural Big Scenes.. Here i realy have to say, Affinity Photo is very slow.. compared to Adobe Photoshop, which pans Images like nothing, new Areas of an Image that come to your Screen by paning, in Affinity have to be rebuild.. it sometimes kills a smooth workflow.. also using Brushes has some time lagging.. I hope this is the result of missing gpu boost ? If so, one of the Big hadaches befor bringing Affinity to our Company will be gone..
  20. Hi Pille... (so Bones get Called in Germany... ) thanks... Where could i put possibly suggestions if i wished so... for blender ?
