  1. My experience of upgrading from Windows 7 to Windows 10 was painless, but soon after the upgrade I started to have niggling little problems with stability, so I then performed a clean install on all 3 of my machines, and I have never regretted doing that! But you do need to backup/save anything you want to keep, this is just good sensible practice! Now that I am fairly proficient with Windows 10, I can honestly say I would never go back to Windows 7 or any other version of Windows.
  2. Looks like I will have to create my own! Thanks anyway! :)
  3. The physical workbook for designer is a great read and a useful resource, but it is not really practical for use when using Designer because of it's bulky nature. A much more practical solution would be a protected PDF file or an online workbook that can be accessed via a password and e-mail exclusive to people who have bought the book. This idea would mean registered owners could log in (on site) or enter a password to access the PDF? Surely a way can be found to enable one of these features or another similar one? This would be a positive selling point for any new user and a must have for dual monitor users! You have already stated elsewhere on the Forum that the Designer Workbook was produced in PagePlus, so you must already have a PDF version available, so what is the problem?
  4. I did a similar thing, I bought a Huion tablet (made in China), it has a 9.5x5.5 inch screen, and it works like a dream with all my graphics/photo software, and at around £50 is a real bargain!
  5. So do I ... But I do see the need for a lighter version?

    There could be an error with the way Dropbox saves files? I remember reading another post that had similar problems with files downloaded from dropbox into AD. You could try downloading the document to your desktop and then load it into AD from there?

    Just to add my voice here, I also would really like a trace feature, but it needs to be done right! I have tried similar trace features on other design programs in the past and they are often pretty poor at best. But knowing how Serif works, I have no doubt that it will be done right!

    What tablet do I use

    I use an Aiptek 12000u graphics tablet, it only has 512 levels of pressure sensitivity,but it is a full A4 size work area, and I have no problems using it with my dual monitor PC. It will also work with any Mac from OS 9. But I am thinking about getting another tablet for my imac, so the Huion H610 is on my hit list!

    Introduce Yourself

    Hi everyone! I am from South Wales UK, And have used Serif products since the company was first formed many years ago. When AD was released I bought it for my imac, and will be buying APh and AP (publisher) when it is released. I must admit that AD is a world ahead of it's PC equivalent (DrawPlus), not that DrawPlus is no good, it is a brilliant piece of software in it's own right, but AD is the next generation in graphics design! My expertise is in 2D Graphics and Photo correction and repair, I also dabble in Web Sites and desktop publishing, I have ALL the Serif programs on my PC, and hope soon to have All the Serif Affinity programs on my imac.
