  1. Hi Everyone, Maybe this is someting widely out of mainstream Wishes in Affinity Photo.. But maybe, maybe there are many other 3D Artists out there, that would like to see this.. So .. What do i wish.. I Would very much appreciate "Cryptomatte" its a fileformat, engeneered for Rendered images in 3D Programes, that have to simulate Reality.. In this FREE available File Format, all the conted of a 3D Rendering automatically produces Masks, and Channels for selectiing "All" available Contend of the rendering... all objects you want, all materials, What ever you need. Point is, this process to produce all needed masks beforehand in 3D Applications was extremly cumbersome , slow , uggly... But, now we have CRYPTOMATTE... Even Adobe hasnt got it.. Dear Develloper from Serif... if you would like to get all the 3D People on your Boat,. .. implement it to Affinity Photo. Even Adobe lucks of it. So this would be a great feature... The following youtube video, shows how Vray one of the most advanced Rendersystems for 3ds max and also many other 3D Packages makes use of this format, which is.... As said free available.
  2. I hope that this will have changed for the final release... in my opinoin it fits only to smal projects. In big professional documents , theres no way to handle incremental versions of GB files and the memory footprint also explodes.. I know that Serf knows... but do they know that they have to change it ?
  3. 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..
  4. greaaat... thats the information, Users need to see the quality of Affinity... thanks for this..
  5. 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 ?
  6. Hi , I just downloaded the newest Beta, 1.70. 227 The realy great News for me is: Yeah... you can position your Textframes in the masterpages, and put the Text in the Paages !!! so you make your textframes layout inside the masterpages as expected, but the text now flexible in the Pages, this way you do no more need to position all Textframes manualy on each new page and can use masterpages for this.. But.. there are still some things i dont expect this way, and i am unsure if its a bug or not.. so please have a look at the screenshot and the explanations on it.. i created some masterpages as test. i positioned 2 Textframes in the master and linked them looked at the pages, and the setup was reflected fine on the pages, i had the masterpages aplied to.. filled in filler text in the pages WHICH WORKED FINE ........ YEAH GREAT STEP Forward .... came back to my masterpage, inserted a new Textframe in between the two allready existing ones, and linked the Textframe from left side to the secound new Textframe.. worked fine.. came back to usual pages, but now, the new link didnt apear here on the new pages... this seems to be wired.. it alway should reflect the changes on the masterpages. I also had to connect the last Textframes on my double sides, manualy to the first textframe on the following doublepage which has the same master aplied.. I am not sure if theres a way, and if it would be and advantage, if this would happen automatically.
  7. hmm.. no problem on my version...
  8. i get a easier information about guides... Right now i only can get precise informations about the position of guides when i use the guides manager.. But why not also using the Transform Palette ? when i hover over a guide, it could give me the position of a guide. Just as it does in indesign, when i cklick an guide.. Only thing i am not sure about is how i would do this, when a guide comes from a masterpage, and so is dotted.. in this case, it couldnt be selected in the page.. Never the less, get better information about guides would be appreciated..
  9. 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 ?
  10. 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
  11. Joachim_L, I think i had taken the wrong name.. i asked for styles, not for textstyles.. Styles are something else... see the screenshot...
  12. Well MEB, if its not possible, we should move this to the wishlist section
  13. Ah.. Well maybe i get here something wrong.. what i mean are these styles.. The "Text Styles" they differ from document document..
  14. 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 ?
  15. 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..
  16. 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..
  17. I would like to see this too.. obvious a very smal but helpful feature
  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 ?

    first bug on 1.7 0 238.... ?

    Thats why we are here..
  20. Soo.. am i the first one one the new Beta to tell about a Bug ? Affinity Publisher Public Beta - I cant open the hyperlinks Window / Tab, whatever it is.. when i use the Studio to aktivate it.. maybe i am looking in the wrong place ? Nothing seems to happen on cklicking the entry " hyperlinks"

    Hi Uwe.. thanks, i found this too, and in this moment i am looking at it... Well the way to aktivate the pannel for Hyperlinks, is to just press strg in german or cmd in english and meanwhile, doubleclicking affinity Photo to start it... in that case another windows pops up before the programm starts and asks you to reset everything.. after doing so, also the studio option for the hyperlink pannel works..
