  1. Thanks R C-R. I think I arranged the artboards top to bottom to ensure they would print in that order - so I inadvertently created the problem myself. I have rearranged the artboards on the layers panel and the print order is now correct. Thanks again for your help Gerard
  2. I have a word document, created by Office lens, which contains text and an image. I cannot copy and paste the image into Affinity Designer or Affinity Photo. I can import into Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop as well as into Microsoft Paint 3d. And I could save in Illusttrator and import into Affinity designer. I just wonder if this is a known problem or am I doing something wrong. I attached the Word document with the image and the text deleted. Thanks for any ideas. As I have said, I can use Illustrator as an intermediary App. but I would prefer to paste directly diagram only.docx
  3. Thanks Callum I hadn't realised that there was a frame around the image. It is working now thanks. Just need to clean up! regards gerard
  4. The photos you posted are quite small, the largest is only 1000 pixels on longest side. If you took these photos then perhaps check your originals and see if you have larger versions. I know nothing of iPhone but I know even an average phone would produce larger files than these
  5. Thanks Carl, That works for me ! I also tried removing the artboard on the original file and that is now working too. So just a problem with artboards on Windows machines. thanks again Gerard
  6. Hi MEB I am using Windows 10 and designer As you can see with the files I uploaded, the 'fill' on the sides of the box are not exported for me
  7. Dan, I notice that CyprienDlp hasn't responded yet. Would you mind taking a look at my files which shows the same thing? Designer files attached as well as jpg and png exported file. "Buttonknob" is embedded into "blankcolour2" and exported as blankcolour2-25.jpg and blankcolour2-25.png thanks gerard blankcolour2.afdesign buttunknob.afdesign
  8. I am having the same problem in Designer. Embedded afdesign files are not being exported in either jpg or png
  9. Importantly, This does not work if you have bought Affinity from Microsoft Store. If you need this then better to buy directly from Serif
  10. Re we talking about American pica's, French picas, or Postscript pica?
  11. There is a before /after tool in the Develop persona. it is the Blue/white half circles on the mid tool bar. Not sure in the Photo persona. I usually toggle the visible checkbox in the layers panel to display( or not) the adjustment layer.
  12. Not sure I am understanding you correctly, but can you not just type the characters?
  13. Thanks for the beta download link. I am really looking forward to trying out this beta version. Having never used beta software before, I wonder are we expected to report on any bugs we find and is there a process we are suppose to use for that.. ? One thing I was able to do immediately was import a pdf exported from a multilayer document in InDesign. This is great for me. Looking forward to getting to know the software a bit better later today.
  14. If you mean the video tutorials, they are working fine for me on Windows 10.
  15. I bought Affinity Photo from Microsoft Store and now want to buy Affinity Designer. Should I buy this also from Microsoft Store or can I purchase from Affinity Store? I note, from reading this forum, that I cannot launch Affinity Photo from Lightroom because I bought from Microsoft Store. Is there any other issues I need to be aware of for Designer and where I purchase it from? thanks for any advice
  16. I also have the same behaviour , Windows 10. I always accept the second 'save' just in case! I notice the same behaviour in MS Word. If I save a document in the normal way and then save it as PDF or XPS format. I assume it is a simple flag which gets set when any change is made and that flag prompts the second request
  17. I am wondering if updates are available for the MS Store version of Affinity Photo ( and Designer). Users on Dpreview forum mention updating to AP version 1.6.3 . I am on . Will this update be available to those who purchased from the MS Store? thanks
  18. Why would you ever expect Affinity to support all these Photoshop components. Clearly if you are so dependent on PS then that is probably the only software you can use?
  19. Really interested in this as I would like to test the beta of Publisher before purchasing. Thanks for this

    Affinity Publisher - Sneak Preview

    Just wondering if anyone know if Pageplus 9 is a reasonable alternative while waiting for Publisher? It is on still available for £19 I think.
