  1. Great, thanks. If anyone else is suffering from this issue, my work-around was to go to File > Export, set up the PDF options there and then save those as a present. You can then apply that present in the Export persona. M
  2. I'm trying to add two PDF export formats for an artboard, however the 'Convert image colour spaces' box won't stay selected. If I tick it, then go to edit another format, the tick will be gone when I return to it (see attached GIF). I've tried unticking 'Embed ICC profile' but that doesn't fix it.
  3. If I use Infer LUT and select an 8 bit, RGB TIFF file, Photo almost always crashes and disappears. It's never done this when inferring from JPEG files. I've tested this a few times with different files to try and find a pattern but I can't determine it yet. I've tried this using ZIP compression and no compression in the files but it doesn't seem to make a difference.
  4. I've since tried it in a different document and it didn't happen, but it's still happening in the attached file. Swings.afdesign
  5. Something I've noticed when using round or square caps on dash line style strokes is that when you expand the stroke, the caps at the start and end are cut off. This doesn't happen with solid line style.
  6. I've been using the new Beta all morning and everything has been working perfectly 😁
  7. Brilliant, thank you. If I encounter any more problems I will share the file where possible. EDIT: Sorry, just realised the Beta is Mac-only and I'm on Windows.
  8. Thank you. Is there any estimate on when a fix will be released? Are we talking days/weeks/months? I'm need Affinity for a lot of vector illustration at the moment and I want to know if it's worth backing up all my presets, uninstalling and putting in an earlier version (which also means I wouldn't be able to open any files edited in 1.8 presumably).
  9. Yeah, the improvements to 'expand stroke' are most welcome indeed. As for this Add issue, sometimes modifying the geometry (with new nodes in places like the overlaps or where you can easily remove them after) before using the Add operation can stop the weird shapes forming. So you can try that as a stop-gap solution for now.
  10. Since updating to 1.8 I've been having problems with the add/subtract geometry options. Sometimes it adds a lot more nodes in areas that weren't even overlapping and at other times when adding shapes some nodes get lost entirely and gives weird results. Needless to say this is a bit frustrating when building vector shapes. I've a attached screenshots of a few examples that have cropped up over the last few days when trying to add geometry. You can see shapes changing and seemingly pointless node changes.
  11. Better than than nothing, although that does mean it also copies over the text style as well, so you have to get those matching first.
  12. I'm not sure if this is a bug or a new feature of 1.7. If you draw a shape with a colour fill, and then use the text tool to put text in this shape, the fill colour stays—in previous versions it would make your shape transparent. And once it's a shape text object, I can't find any way to change or remove the colour. The only colour I can change is that of the text. I am using on Windows 10.
  13. Here you go. The app quit a few a mix brush strokes after the last save point. I'm using the DAUB watercolour brushes and could hear my CPU fan going full-on so I don't know if it's too much for my hardware (top end MS Surface Pro 4). history.afphoto [EDIT] I've been trying the exact same thing in v1.6.5 for several minutes now and it hasn't crashed so it does seem like it's something to do with v1.7.
  14. It happens for me too. A few quick brush strokes and then the whole app closed.
  15. Apologies if this feature already exists - I couldn't find it. It would be great if you could select a maximum value for a slider in a macro. Case in point, I've made a macro to add film grain, and one of the steps is a gaussian blur filter (called 'softness' in my macro - see attached). For this effect you're only going to want values like 0.1px, 0.2px... nothing over 1px. So it would be really good if the slider only went from 0px to 1px, rather than 0px to 1024px which just doesn't give the precision control needed... instead you have to type in values manually. This would be especially handy when offering macros to other people as it would save additional instructions on how to use them if you can just set a fixed range. Cheers, Mark
