    Just two more days... :D :D :D
  4. Thanks, that's good to know. Do you know where I can find more information (or a tutorial) on managing the file size? I am systematically struggling with huge file sizes for many of my Affinity files.
  5. Hey, I have been working a few times with files with lots of images. I sometimes don't want to compress them before I am sure of how big they will be in the layout, so I add them in original resolution. Once I am done with the placement, I would like to rasterize them. But when I select multiple images and click "rasterize", only a single one of them is rasterized. It would seem logical to me that the operation applies to the entire selection. Alternatively would be a option "rasterize all images". This way, once you have all images the size you want them, you can rasterize them all in one click and drastically reduce the file size. Greets!

    Align stroke to outside is not working

    Hey, I am having the same issue. Is there a way to align strokes of paths that are not closed?

    Open splash screen examples not downloading?

    Hey, it took me ages to figure this out too. Indicators could be a bit more clear.
  9. I have been trying to work with your suggestions and I have seriously reduced the file size. I have rebuilt the file with all images now compressed. Where the original file was 650MB, the new file is now 140 MB. This is much better but nevertheless seems still too large, considering all the imported images were smaller than 500kb. So I just did a test adding 3 images of a combined total size of about 1 MB. The resulting AD file is over 17 MB. Is it normal AD will increase the size of pixel layers by almost 20-fold? I've attached the files used. TEST_FILE_SIZE2.afdesign
  10. Hey, I am fairly new to Designer and I never worked with illustrator. I've been working on some drawings with multiple artboards. I've put in several images (backgrounds, textures, etc) into vector drawings. Now I've noticed the file is 650 MB. Could anyone give some ideas to keep the file size under control? - Are images maintained within the document at full resolution, even when shrunken to a tiny size, or do they get compressed? So should I compress them before adding them into designer? - Is there a way to clean out a designer file? For instance to see which pixel layers are heaviest? - How to work with embedded file versus standard layer? What's really the difference? - How to work with multiple instances of same clipped images (textures)? How do you guys manage this? Thanks!

    Affinity Publisher

    I guess we won't see any Publisher until after Designer for Ipad?
