  1. @thomaso! It feels like 1001 (actually almost 1002) years of experience these days! My son's early childhood motto was "Mothers don't cry. They do things for people!" And yes, all documents would have been affected. But I have been sewing medically-approved anti-virus masks instead of working at the computer for the past few days and had just started a new document to create a single page instruction sheet. Placed some Guides, wrote the stuff, printed it, closed down Publisher, wrote my "bug report" and went back to the sewing machine. Are we having fun yet?🙃
  2. Welcome, @Bobanian! Just in case somebody else doesn't help first, there are a few things to do first before you can cease being a "giant B." Affinity waits until a new forum member has at least 3 or more posts, and 3 or 4 days before this is permitted. That was established to prevent spammers from taking advantage of the Forums and new members. Once you have passed that stage, you can then sign in and click on your giant B at the top right of any forum page, and you will arrive at your own page. Then click on the little square icon inside your giant burgundy B on the left, (see picture below) and you will open up the area where you can upload a photo, resize it, etc. Hope this helps! !
  3. Thanks @thomaso! Problem solved. My attorney son was fiddling with Publisher while visiting during stay-at-home-coronavirus time. Evidently he unchecked VIEW>Show Margins, which I have never unchecked since August 30, 1018 with the first Publisher Beta. Since I have never changed the setting, it never occurred to me to look there. In fact, I must confess that I didn't even know that there WAS an option to turn the margins off. Anyway, you are a trooper and thank you again. Got to see what else he turned off!!
  4. Well, @thomaso and @walt.farrell if I were stupid enough to have Preview Mode on I would eventually figure it out.😖 I may be the village idiot, but I am not that stupid. The process works perfectly with Photo. It does not work with Publisher. Just tried it again. Here, for your delectation are screen shots from Publisher. Not from Photo. The perfectly blank canvas (second screen shot) is NOT in preview mode. It is after clicking on the Preset "basic letter with margins" which I created to demonstrate the problem. In my humble opinion, this is a bug in Publisher. That is why I posted it here. Cheers!
  5. If you use FILE>NEW and under the section "Document units" choose inches, and save it, then the next time you open FILE>NEW your document should still be in inches. At least that is what I have done on my MAC. Also, if after you have established your setting for the new document and click on Custom you will get a preset box outlined in blue in "My Presets" which you could then rename to something such as "Default document" and then test it out. Should work. Hope this helps.
  6. I have tried several times to create a new template with specific margins. All settings appear to be fine, I click on Create, then click to open the new document. Blank canvas. No margins. When I try using the Preset the same thing happens. Every other setting is there. No margins.
  7. @Alfred and @walt.farrell. Sorry gang. I did buy Designer for iPad from the Affinity store. I was NOT redirected to the Mac app store. The only app I have purchased from the MAC app store was Photo back in 2017. I decided to uninstall that version last year and purchased it again from the Affinity store. Now every app on my computer comes from the Affinity store. Maybe Affinity has changed its procedure since last year?
  8. @AJW. Welcome!! An excellent place to start is with the very thorough article in affinityspotlight.com, “Jump Into Affinity Photo.” It has the advantage of being able to be read as slowly or quickly as you would wish wish as you work your way around. Hope this helps.
  9. @SPMH if you spend $20.00 for the two iPad apps, then you will have the superb qualities of the Apple pencil, plus you can seamlessly move your work to your laptop to use all the extra bells and whistles those versions provide. I have both the Apple pencil and an XP Pen Deco 03 which does a very nice job. But I am not an artist. I just fiddle for fun.
  10. Did you try to buy Affinity Photo for iPad from the Affinity store? I successfully bought Affinity Designer for iPad that way.
  11. Checked the patterns. Very sophisticated!
  12. I am a rank amateur at brushes, but I have made some image brushes and found that they could be created and worked properly when I made them from a PNG which had been Saved Without Background. Perhaps you could try that?
  13. @firstdefence Great minds on the same path! In the meantime, having downloaded a medical school pattern for making face masks, I shall "improve the shining moments" (to quote a Victorian-era and very smarmy book) by sewing same with sheeting fabric. Lots of them. To donate to the nearest hospital. Under the circumstances, probably a better plan than sitting here, fiddling with fabrics Styles!! Stay well!
  14. @Hanko Welcome! Tap on the word Affinity Photo (or Designer, or Publisher) then click on Preferences then click on the arrow beside the little box with the tiny black squares, and choose User Interface. Then you can not only change your interface to light gray, but also by using the sliders at the top, choose just how much gray you wish. Below are my settings. I use the light gray interface. I am using a Mac but hopefully this is the same for Windows!
