  1. Awesome, @Old Bruce! It was indeed set to cube... Not sure how tired I was when that happened. Many thanks for your help!
  2. Hi All, I'm working on an iOS app prototype using several Artboards (to keep track of the different design stages) in one AD-document. I must have done something pretty stupid that I can't fix (or can't find the fix for) for days now. With snapping activated, I don't get the usual red (horizontally) and green (vertically) snapping "guides" any longer, but therefore get an orange one for both. I don't mind the color change but moving an item say from left to right makes it jump up and down (maybe to snapping to other guides?) a bit, so that I can't move an item either horizontally or vertically "smoothly" any longer. The usual green and red snapping guides only appear when I hold down command (as I just discovered by creating he screenshot below), but they look to be out of place, too. I tried different snapping options from the drop down menu and now have everything set up exactly like in a sample project where everything is working fine, so this looks to be document base rather than app based. Is here any way to reset the snapping engine for a document? The only other thing that could have caused this in my eyes is that my canvas accidentally got rotated once. I fixed that using the "View/Reset rotation" command. Could that have led to this snapping issue? I'm sure there is an easy fix for that, but I can't find it. Thanks!
  3. Well... That's how I feel for the Affinity live Keynote at 18:15 UK Time. I mean, we already know publisher so I hope the surprises Ash teased will be something more than just the activation of the Designer and Photo personas.
  4. Hi Adam, thanks for your quick reply. I don't want to sound disrespectful, so please don't get me wrong, but with usability in mind, I don't care if it may be appropriate. To be honest, I don't even understand why it wouldn't be appropriate. For me it wouldn't even make any difference if both sides were sitting in different solar systems It would just help me to reach my target i. E. tutorials quicker. And yes, quicker as to hit my favourites and look around for the right one. (We may better call it: more convenient. Your whole Software, from photo to publisher is so damn intuitiv and convenient. Why stop there?) And, well uhm... There is a link the other way around, right? I can jump right from Affinity Website to the forums. Maybe that is, what won't let me understand why it's not appropriate. However I do respect your decision
  5. Didn't know where to put this, so please feel free to move the topic. One "issue" I do have from time to time: If I want to go from forums to your actual website I can't find an easy way, instead find myself typing your domain into the address bar in Safari. I always try to get to your Website by clicking the Affinity Logo on top of the forums, but that leads to the main forums page which actually is the same action that the "Browse" link just below that provides. Any chance to implement an easy way to hit the website from within the forums? Or any chance I just missed that easy way? Thx a lot. Oh and yes, I do understand Publisher and Affinity Live tomorrow are top priority right now
  6. Though on Mac I really appreciate the improvements in noise reduction!! Great job on that!!
  7. For what it`s worth, i got the same issue for Eos 7D but slightly worse... With some pictures i got 2 AF fields shown active though using Single Point AF. Obviously none of both is the correct AF Field. Will this also be tackled in the next version or should I upload the raw file too just to be safe?
  8. Both will work in Publisher once Publisher will be released on June 19th. Doesn't matter if you bought Designer and Photo from AppStore or Affinity Store.
  9. Though the Shortcut does already help a lot, being able to paste without format via right-click would still add even more convenience to this task. Any chance this will get implemented in the future?
  10. Any chance you guys update the Affinity TV App on Apple TV for a live stream of the Event (and catching up the new set of turorials?) Would be pretty cool. Nevertheless, looking forward to Affinity Live!!
  11. True. Serif knows that too but i prefer them to stay a small team and take their time. "Unfortunately" Publisher got the priority though I am also waiting for that for Book design/layout.
  12. Not only Adobe but also Skylum which announced to have their DAM ready this year. As they said to have it ready last year. But still from what I am hearing it seems that they took a huge step forward to the actual release. Regarding sensei. I don't want to have my pictures in a cloud and I don't want to have any AI being able to work through my stuff. Privacy is what matters. Unfortunately that's something that many people don't rely on...
  13. Not sure about that. They may have learned from the past that announcing something too early bites themself in regards of meeting timeframes. My bets are on 2019, though that depends on how long publisher will stay in beta/take until it's ready which is the same for the 1.7 versions of Designer and Photo.
  14. They are developing a tool for that (a DAM, Digital Asset Management), though it is still unknown how feature rich this will be. Also the timeframe for a release is unknown, though it is known that affinity publisher will come first, so that the core range photo, designer and publisher will be completed first. This makes absolutely sense though many people are waiting for a DAM too, as there aren't that many good alternatives out there. Long story short: You are not the only one having a hard time to decide if it is worth it to spend money on something else or save the money for the Affinity DAM as there is no given timeframe for that.
