  1. Could not figure out so far - most probably images are being embedded into APublisher document ? PLEASE consider linking, otherwise larger documents with lots of images would not be usable...
  2. Will try to reproduce above error. Files size ca. 8 MB. After 2-3h working on relatively uncomplicated data /business card design/ above error appears. Exported to PDF but all progress lost /yes, I know Ive been warned/..
  3. OK, got it. Not the case, all created from scratch in AFD Beta./ * *UPDATE: Error appeared when I started to drag some logo vectors into AFD file. Nevertheless I cant 'Save to a new file'. This suggestion appears only once, next occurences produce only message: 'Save failed because(...)' etc. Cant see embedded vectors under ASSETS... , How should I proceede to avoid such problems?
  4. Would you explain: AFD file contains embedded AFD files?
  5. Manipulating nodes and curves /joining/breaking/separating/joining/ after ca 20 min crash.
  6. Hello, As a part of testing I made short comparison with same, repeatable job I do mostly: in Photoshop CS5 and AF Photo beta, in this specific case I develop raw DNG and Flood Select he background to be removed afterwards/removing not necessary-not included in video/ General thing is: could processing be significantly speeded up in AFP? (Its not a race, movements are relaxed but difference is serious anyway, I did not care about timing precision, its just to illustrate basic difference/ AF Photo: 2. Photoshop CS5:
  7. helo, Could anybody advice if/how possible to control padding /the margins/ while Create Slice ? or how to export each layer to separate EPS (or selected w/out the background) ?
  8. Victory! Expanding stroke does the thing. Although /to me/ working on a stroke exclusively is a speed up and advantage but I can understand also the limitations. Actually above method /expanding to curve/ forces me to more carefull job so I would NOT have to make any corrections afterwards /modify filled curves instead of a simple stroke/ but in the end it pays off. Thank you ! Btw. Suppose it d be great advantage if could be possible to select/unselect/invert selection in Layers panel - as RMB menu ? Thats ok, I am familiar w/that. But what I am trying to achieve is to autocrop also the padding around the object itself. Btw. Suppose it d be great advantage if could be possible to Select All/Unselect/Invert Selection in Layers panel - as RMB menu ?

  10. As shown on Mac 1.7 AFD section-link: Can we do alike in Win?
  11. hello, I have a small issue/question reg. Export Persona: I vectorize/draw several dozens of phonetic symbols in AFD file, then I need to batch export them to separate .eps files /for INDD CS5/. Basically everything works as expected, some tuning would be great though. Is/how possible to have them cropped /while slicing/ to only content, w/out white background. I mean only extent of the letters themselves? If I do it manually-its matter of zoom only, but Id like to have it precise and automated ))
  12. Not really, says it cant find some .msi...; Anyway: switched back to Win 10 x64 Release branch, setup ok. Dismissed.
  13. WINDOWS 10 x64 PRO Insider Preview Skip Ahead 20H1 18845.rs_prerelease.190223-1718 Log: Product: Affinity Designer Customer Beta -- Error 1714. The older version of Affinity Designer Customer Beta cannot be removed. Contact your technical support group. System Error 1612. Btw. AFPhoto updates properly.
  14. AFD needs to be sure YOU REALLY want to do sth serious with it ))
  15. hello, I have at the moment +1000 psd images to process: a title block/separate image(AF Designer) file has to be placed on each of them, in a specific location/coordinates/. Additionally some canvas resizing and trimming may be necessary - to align them in constant relation to each other and the margins/bounds also. Can I automate/batch the process with any of Affinity tools ? OR Can I insert AFD object into SPECIFIC position in AF Photo? /and record a macro for this/ ? AND Why cant I record macro: "Set current selection" or "Embedded dirty" ?!
  16. Thx, Ive figured it out, just a bit diffeent workflow manner than Adobe ))
  17. Since AFD does not provide MACRO functionality for now I would have to arrange main workflow in AFPhoto and would it be possible to preserve /similar to SmartObjects/ editability of an AFD object/a title block-text/ placed in AFPhoto? Just so I could modify only some text in placed title block?
  18. Ad. 1 Awkward handling... to say least.)); Imho /and people I know working in PS/ its very useful if you can assign previously defined macro/action/ to a shortcut Ad. 2 As mentioned earlier: I need to merge an image with a title block so I started as follows: 1. enlarge image canvas center-downwards 2. place AFDesign title block /btw on PLACE user interaction is required, can it be done in host image center-by default /w/out user interaaction/? 3. resize placed AFD title block and move it to a position 4. crop whole image /known problem with cropping to layers' bounds/ 5. resize canvas /centerwise/ to add some margin around So if I have all above in on MACRO only step 1 and 2 seems to work ok - alternatively: 3-5. When a single step activated-eg. 3-also works. As a whole MACRO it does not work, I can obtain only proper result 1-2.
  19. So coincidence ? Looks that was the ambition. Nevertheless discussion seems pointles. So they are not/yet?/ mature enough to be production use.
  20. Iam starting to feel an unreasonably importunate customer )) Afaik AF was intended also to resemble Adobe products in functionality but with greater ease of use. And there come such questions from. I would like to reproduce at least same functionality with AF as I had/have in Adobe. Am I wrong with that?
