  1. I purchased the Windows version and the Mac version of publisher as early access, downloaded the Windows version, but cannot find publisher anywhere on the Mac store? So how do I download it please?
  2. Apart from my Windows PC's which run Affinity Photo and Designer full versions!!, I also own an iMac 20" which runs Affinity Photo and Designer full versions, an iPad Air which runs the Affinity Photo and Designer full versions. My problem is that I also own a MacBook Pro with 16 gig of ram a 256 gig ssd running Mojave ..... The above iMac uses the Apple store to supply my paid for Affinity products, but my MacBook Pro has a different e-mail and password for the Apple store, so I cannot download Affinity products to the MacBook? Is there a way around this problem please? This is why I prefer Windows Affinity store, because I can download the physical Affinity programs for Windows from there!
  3. One ID on the iMac, and NO! I have not changed the e-mail address, just my password ( As mentioned in 3 of my earlier posts).
  4. No! I don't see the Apps on the purchase page on the iMac or the MacBook Pro, All I see is "You have not yet made any purchases". MEB, I will contact Apple as soon as I can find the contact details?
  5. You have all been brilliant and I appreciate your help! But the original problem was that I could not sign into my MacBook Pro, so I changed the password to enable me to sign in, and that is where the problems started! So I looked up my old e-mail and password and tried to log into the iMac using that ... But no luck, I can log out and in again thanks to your help, but the iMac will not recognise my old login details? I was wondering if I could make a new account with my old details, and still keep the one I am using now? If I read "firstdefence" correctly I can do that?
  6. Login into the Mac is not the problem, it is login into the App store when the Mac is running! Do you know if disabling the startup login also disables the App store login (which is what I need?). I suppose I can try it and find out, but if you know the answer it would be easier (cause I'm lazy).
  7. The problem with that is every time you log out of the App store, and then re-open it, you are automatically logged back into the App store, so I neverr get the chance to change the log in details? If you know a way around this please enlighten me?
  8. That is my next step Walt, I let you all know what they say?
  9. Any help from Serif would be appreciated?
  10. Good to know stokerg, but I don't want to purchase, I want to download "paid for" versions! Anyway, I changed my password for the App store on my iMac, then was able to use this new password on my MacBook Pro to access the App store ..... But Was unable to access my App purchases and was told I have not made any purchases yet! So I went back to my iMac and found that I had lost my purchases on the iMac as well. So I am now locked out of my purchase page on the App Store, and cannot download Designer or Photo which I have paid for!
  11. I will change my password on my iMac account, as it seems the password is not accepted on the MacBook. If that solves the problem I will let you know? Why can't we have a simple download of our owned Mac programs, the Affinity store could support a Mac section and it would make life easier?
  12. I wish it was that simple Alfred, but it seems that each Apple device (at least the ones I have) are set to accept the store login details you signed up with?
  13. Adobe has been around for what seems like century's, and it has taken them all this time to create bloated software that tries to cover every eventuality, and to some extent succeeds! Affinity has to implement most of these standard conventions, but what Affinity is trying to do, is make these features easier and much more logical in use! But Affinity is a NEW approach, and is not trying to re-invent the wheel or "catch up" with Adobe, they are trying to make software that is just as good or even better than Adobe, and I for one think they are succeeding!
  14. People should try to understand that Affinity Photo is NOT Photoshop and Affinity Designer is NOT Illustrator! These are totally new Applications and even though they cover everything that Photoshop and Illustrator can accomplish and do this much better, neither application is trying to emulate Adobes dinosaurs. If Serif listened to every complaint about "this feature and that button doesn't work like Photoshop/Illustrator does", we would end up with Photoshop/Illustrator clones, lets hope that never happens!!!
  15. 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?
  16. 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.
  17. Looks like I will have to create my own! Thanks anyway! :)
  18. 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!
  19. So do I ... But I do see the need for a lighter version?

    opened document with issues

    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!
