  1. MEB responded on 21st July 2020 that this is being looked into ... any solution? I don't normally print from AP but this article made me rethink. However, none of my paper icc profles show in the soft proofing routine. They are indeed all present where they should be in ColorSync and work perfectly well when soft proofing from CaptureOne Pro.
  2. How can I add a black keyline (about 5px) to a photo in AP? Thanks
  3. Patrick, Many thanks for this response. I suspect that the pre-launch beta phase involvement may be the problem as, if my memory serves me correctly (which it may not - it was more than 5 years ago) the beta test group got a big "thank you" from Affinity in the form of a free upgrade from the GM to the official release, and that is why there is no record of a purchase in my AP account. I am certain that the MAS search is correct in that one thing I do recall is advising friends to buy direct from Affinity because of the free trial period. That leaves the question of why the histo
  4. Thanks Will - yes your are correct. I was able to check purchases back to 2011 and AP is not amongt them which confirms my belief that it was a direct purchase from Affinity. Trouble is it doesn't show when I log to my account there.
  5. Walt, trouble is my Apple ID is the same but not the password and I don't have a record of it that far back.
  6. (Sorry - the "I did" is in reply to walt). Bruce - the nuclear option looks more attractive by the day. I've got 13 days left on my free trial so may try some conventional warfare first.
  7. Tried all that. Updates/Reload Page is inactive and 1.7 has no update activity either automatically on opening or through a menu link.
  8. I was an early adopter of AP and an active participant in the User Forum (ID billtils) but for reasons that were not directly related to the program have not used it since 1.7 Things have changed (including my computers) and all attempts to update to 1.8 have failed - the MAS doesn't recognise me and there is no autoupdate option when I open 1,7. I have downloaded 1.8 but it requires a key and I can't find it and all attempts to resolve this from the user forum have failed. I have been able to login to the user forum (as billtils) and to my Affinity account (billtils@mac.com) but AP itself
  9. I'm not complaining about or criticising what Serif have done in the last 3 or 4 years, with AP or with the other lines, but I would have been happier if they had just said when this was first discussed that a DAM was of interest but not a priority. The moment has passed.
  10. That could be anything from 13 to 25 months from now. It's almost certainly already too late for me and in that time frame "almost" can be deleted. Could attract others though.
  11. It's been "wait until next year" since day 1. I can understand that Serif devoted resources to other developments such as the iThingy version for sound commercial reasons, but would have preferred that they just drop the DAM and be done - and let us know that's where things are.
  12. I haven't posted much here for a while as the current MAS version meets my editing needs quite nicely - thanks to all for your great work. However, it seems like a lifetime ago that we were assured that a DAM was coming. Is this still the case or has it been dropped?
  13. Just curious about what is meant by "Gradient mask" here and how people use the AP version. There is a gradient mask tool in CaptureOne that I use a lot. It draws a gradient (obviously :rolleyes: ) by selecting a start point and then dragging to the desired end point. You can then apply any of the C1 editing tools to that segment of your image, I don't see that flexibility in the AP version (and yes, I will be 0.001% amazed if the issue is my understanding rather than the capability of the tool in AP).
  14. @R C-R Actually this is a Mac site (Affinity Photo on Mac Beta). It is AP that is now not Mac only, but there is a separate forum for the Windows version. I suppose if we go up a level, you would be correct that Affinity Beta Support in itself is not platform specific. However, there would not be much point in posting advice that involved the possible use of Apple Photos on the other Forum ;) .
