    Again-just to refresh above subject: would be really good NOT to rely on windows scaling exclusively...

    Have you tried expanding the stroke so it becomes a curve

    Enhancing this productivity thread: Id even say: Drag-and-drop images onto AP window AND /like INDD/ you could then select multiple images AND, holding some control key /CTRL,Shift,Alt/ - align them immediately in even columns/row - see INDD. Linking is priority IMHO. Embedding may have its advantages but it can clogg the app very quickly.

    My bad. I WILL. Thanks you thought it over.
    Hope its/would be possible for quick edit in source app: it happens often you have to review linked images, submitted by the authors, replace some of them, adjust/change some etc. Like 'Edit original' in INDD.

    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...

    As long as we are supposed to test beta both import and export indd/idml ability IS CRITICAL because ITS BETA and if you do your work on beta you always have to be secured with possibility to finish your tasks/documents in the other app. If its not critical - should you use AP for fun only ? )) Imho.

    You can save them anywhere convenient to you. I save mine in a folder under Affinity\Affinity Photo\Resources\Macros.

    That's correct. You can edit a placed .afdesign file in Affinity Photo, and vice-versa.

    hello,
    Just now facing a problem with producing +1000 images and sequentially numbered title blocks on them:
    Would you consider any data link capabilities in all AF apps /and smooth data interchangebility between them/?
    It'd be great when sth more flexible than simple data merge/Indd or PS variables / - odbc?, could be implemented...

    Guys, move the topic if needed.
    I have to express my full appreciation for the way you provided pdf services within APub.
    Really, I found it especially valuable because during data migration between my NASes I lost some Indesign documents but still could recover final PDFs from cooperating print house.
    Looks I can still work on these docs with APub and this huge doc can be still viewed, zoomed and panned with full display resolution and performance. ))) !

    +1  My vote for 'Edit Original' in right click menu - I use this all the time in InDesign.
    +1  Also for embed/link toggle in the toolbar.

    At the very least, importing IDML files is a must. Scribus and VivaDesigner both do this, and it's the only way to get punters to switch, if they've got legacy documents.

    Zbigg reacted to firstdefence in Trim Transparency in Affinity   
    Just for laughs...
    I created a document in Adobe Photoshop CC  and a similar one in Affinity Photo I created a simple brush 100px in each app and started with RGB Red (255,0,0) Hardness 0% I made guides that would place the brush centres at X: 150, 300 and 450px and Y: 150px  I made 3 brush dots with a single click with the mouse using Hardness 0%, 50% and 100% I then used trim in Adobe Photoshop CC and Clip in Affinity Photo The document size for Adobe Photoshop CC = 481x159px The document size for Affinity Photo = 396x99px This is quite a difference, Affinity Photo crops quite aggressively to the 100% hardness dot but the antialiasing is better in Adobe Photoshop CC and gives a smoother effect than Affinity Photo

    So-called. New invention perhaps?
    Does it bring any enlightment to the real problem?
