  1. Hi, I'm on Affinity Mac latest updates Big Sur and Affinity. My refine button disappears during refining. How do I get it back? Regards, David
  2. Maybe change your title from "Richard" to "Replacing sky in Affinity Photo" so others can find your topic in forum search?
  3. No unfortunately that is a specific PhotoShop plugin and doesn't work in Affinity.
  4. Yes with all browsers supporting webp now it's unbelievable that Affinity is not implementing it soon! But I already gave up! And it's very easy to implement! https://developers.google.com/speed/webp/download It's called: "unwillingness"
  5. Hi @grahamm7, Never tried this one, but this seems to work: https://rtlfixer.com/ What software will Right to Left Fixer work with? Right-to-left writing support can now be achieved with many software that don’t support right to left writing. Some of the supported and tested apps are: – Affinity Designer – Affinity Photo – Affinity Publisher – iStudio Publisher – Adobe Photoshop – Adobe Illustrator – Adobe Indesign – Xara Designer – And much more Regards, David
  6. The same here! The bottom and top of the cover is damaged! Taken in account the absurd shipping price of € 11,94 ! From Nottingham to Belgium. A too large box without any filling to protect the book! But the book is beautiful and well made! 😉
  7. @Pšenda, Don't think the OP is here for a Quiz by you! You understand clearly what he asked! Regards, David The app: https://rtlfixer.com/en/about/ This is a discussion about the solutions : Some discussion about the subject going on:
  8. Just purchased the new Publisher Work Book and was surprised to see a shipping price of € 11.49 !? Of course I payed it because I really want the book but wonder why the price is so high?
  9. Hi, Try to purchase some more Affinity stuff and despite the fact that my VAT number is registered in my account the price is including VAT so I don't purchase, because in Europe companies don't pay VAT in countries other then their own residence. Can someone from Affinity staff tell me why this is still not fixed? Regards, David
  10. Hi @nicanorrr. On screen only pixels count! DPI or PPI is for print and does nothing on screen. 1000px X 1000px will be 1000px X 1000px no matter if it's 72dpi or 3000dpi. Regards, David
  11. Hi, Try to work with Affinity Designer latest version on my iMac 2019 i5 6 core 40 gig mem Radion Pro 580 X 8 gig with Big Sur. Only a small logo but it is impossible to click the layers or do any work. Regards, David
  12. Hi, I just exported a SVG with Affinity Designer in Big Sur all latest version and there is a error in the way the <tspan></tspan> is placed in the file. It implicates wrong spaces between fonts! I only noticed it in the website I made it for in a smaller size. You can't see it in a big size. I did the same export with Affinity Designer on Windows 10 and the result is different from the Mac one. The Windows 10 version spits out a file without errors. If someone from Affinity staff is reading this I can provide you the Windows and Mac file. Never had a problem in years with SVG and Designer on Mac! Regards, David
  13. Thanks for your suggestion, but I want to keep the vector design in tact. You are referring to a bitmap?
  14. Hi, I have a PDF from a client with a white background and a logo on it. It's only one flatten layer. When I activate transparency in the document set up from Affinity Designer nothing happens and the white background stays white. Is there some kind of trick to get the transparency working? Regards & Thanks, David
  15. Hi @duch_suva, When using <picture> and <srcset> I would consider using "w" instead of 1x, 2x, 3x etc. Start with the first size you want for example 1000w (=1000px) then click on the additional properties next to your size there you can rename the image and show the size: for example my-image-1000px done by putting "name", "width" and "px" or when the name is already OK you use the "slice name". To prevent you from having to do this for every slice you can copy the slices and only rename the sizes. For example 1000w, 2000w, 3000w etc. When you made a export set up with all slices you can save it as a preset. Then convert the jpg also in webp, optimize the jpg's with for example jpegMini Code example not the same sizes but you get the idea this is for screens of max 2000px so if you want to serve a iMac 5k you have to go till 5000w: <picture> <source media="(min-width: 36em)" srcset="assets/Responsive-Images/nieuws/header-news/header-info-webp/header-info-1000px.webp 1000w, assets/Responsive-Images/nieuws/header-news/header-info-webp/header-info-2000px.webp 2000w, " type="image/webp"> <source media="(max-width: 36em)" srcset="assets/Responsive-Images/nieuws/header-news/header-info-webp/header-info-phone-800px.webp 800w, assets/Responsive-Images/nieuws/header-news/header-info-webp/header-info-phone-1250px.webp 1250w" type="image/webp"> <source media="(min-width: 36em)" srcset="assets/Responsive-Images/nieuws/header-news/header-info-jpg/header-info-1000px.jpg 1000w, assets/Responsive-Images/nieuws/header-news/header-info-jpg/header-info-2000px.jpg 2000w" type="image/jpeg"> <source media="(max-width: 36em)" srcset="assets/Responsive-Images/nieuws/header-news/header-info-jpg/header-info-phone-800px.jpg 800w, assets/Responsive-Images/nieuws/header-news/header-info-jpg/header-info-phone-1250px.jpg 1250w" type="image/jpeg"> <img src="assets/Responsive-Images/nieuws/header-news/header-info-jpg/header-info-2000px.jpg" class="img-fluid"/> </picture> When you use a vector for example a SVG you only have to use one image for every ratio and sometimes you can do it with only one, because there is no quality loss in any size. With images on screen only the larger dimensions in pixels creates better quality images. For example a HD screen needs 1080px x 1920px to produce a good quality full screen image and a 5k iMac needs 5120px x 2880px for the same image to look good. On screen DPI and PPI means nothing! Regards, David Example for a header ratio 4:1 wide devices. Example for a header ratio 4:3 small devices:
  16. Hi, Even in the latest version of Affinity Designer when I work in the export mode it seems impossible to copy a slice. Say I want 1000w, 2000w, 3000w, 4000w and 5000w I still have to use the Path components panel to rename every single slice. Path components doesn't seem to be remembered so I have to do this for every slice (a lot of work!). Is there any way to quickly copy the slices and only change the sizes? Thanks, David
  17. Hi, I have purchased a icon set and try to select one icon in AD (made out of multiple parts) from a page with multiple icons with the mouse, but unfortunately it moves the whole page. What is the best way to do this with the mouse? Regards & Thanks, David
  18. They could have taken the lead by adding webp to the export panels like Bohemian Sketch did (early adoption like I purchased all 3 Affinity apps in a early stage, because I believed it was something to invest in for now and the future)! Taken the lead also means believing that it's the future and advocating the use of webp with tutorials etc. If you don't take the lead and any risk or don't have a vision of the future of web design you miss out on early adoption of innovative implementations. Before Affinity I used only Photoshop, Illustrator and Sketch until I was reading about Affinity. Adding webp to a web export panel will not bother anyone else who is not interested in webp and they can carry on like they did before. For webp I moved back to the export panel of Sketch for half of my work. Nobody has said that the adoption rate is high, and it will definitely help when all photo editors support the extension. (the chicken and egg story!) Webp will be soon implemented in all major browsers. Is implemented in some photo editing apps and all image delivering cloud services work with webp. Idea for the Affinity Photo website:
  19. Wonder if you have really read my post! SAFARI HAS IMPLEMENTED WEBP IN THEIR LATEST SAFARI BROWSER AND THAT IMPLICATES THAT ALL BROWSERS CAN READ WEBP! That's great news and the reason I started this topic. You don't have to tell me what to do on this forum! Are you the forum police? Start your own topic and skip this one! So it has nothing to do with a point made because the implementation of webp in Safari is new!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  20. Wonder why you respond in Dutch on a English forum? And when your not interested and want attention for an other topic I advice you to start your own topic! Just don't read this topic!
  21. Because webp is implemented in all browsers now? Including Safari! Why do you think it is implemented in all browsers? Because they all want to promote this file extension to make the web faster! If you don't want to use it fine! Start your own cad 3d topic and leave this one!
  22. Hi, Mac Rumors Safari Implementation of webp Now with the implementation of webp in all browsers, including Safari, it is extremely painful to see that last week an Affinity staff member jumped on the bandwagon to defend that almost nobody uses webp and we have to figure it out ourselves.I expected when I bought the Affinity Suite that Affinity was a modern progressive application bundle and would promote the use of webp by implementing it in the export panels and making tutorials on the subject. Webp is an excellent replacement for both transparent PNGs and JPGs. Yes, the use of webp still needs to grow I agree, but with this conservative mentality it obviously doesn't help to achieve this. Hope to see some more positive response from Affinity Staff and quick implementation of webp. Regards, David
  23. It was a reply to your post! I showed you my work flow to explain my point. So if I make my point and you don't have a answer you come with this? The request is made for many years by many people. This is a discussion about why it is not implemented yet.
  24. Hi @R C-R Affinity can export a total header with all orientations for a website. I made export presets that can spit out a complete header in just 10 seconds. It would be really handy when the webp conversion could take place in the same preset. Unfortunately I have to use XnConvert to do the webp convertion. Hope you understand my point!
