  1. The title says it all. I saw it in a tutorial, but somehow missed the explanation of how to set Affinity Photo preferences up for it and can't find the tutorial again OR how to do it in Help or Preferences. It is apparently possible to display a brush as an outer circle showing the edge of the brush and an inner circle -- if the brush has a hardness of less than 100% -- showing the point at which it becomes "hard. Advice appreciated. --Cyranose
  2. DM1, Thanks! I haven't had a chance to look this over yet, but I hope it's no too different from the desktop version, which is what I have. Thanks again, --Cyranose
  3. I know there's a PDF compendium of Affinity Photo help files, and I find it very helpful. I am wondering if there is a similar compendium for Affinity Designer (and/or Publisher?), and if so where I can find it. Thanks! Cyranose
  4. Hi. The title says it all. When I export an AP file as a TIFF, whether 8-bit RGB or CMYK, I can't open it in Painter. I keep getting "unsupported compression method." Anything I can do about this?
  5. Lagarto, Bri-Toon, I'm afraid I can't help with either of those questions. Those options would indeed be nice to have, though. Perhaps someone at Affinity is listening? (Hint, hint.)
  6. (Raises hand): I know! I know! I discovered this one by accident, since I couldn't figure out how to flip a pasted item and couldn't find anything in Affinity Photo Help on the topic. When I did it, I felt a sense of wonder and a childlike glee -- everything should be this simple. To flip horizontally, grab the right side of the bounding box and DRAG IT OVER THE LEFT BOUNDARY! The image will reverse!!! To do it vertically, grab the bottom and drag it over the top! --Cyranose
  7. Thanks. I stared at that a bit, then looked at WYSIWYG's site trying to figure out their relationship. I eventually found text implying that Quick&Easy was WYSIWYG's precursor. (See attached screengrab.)
  8. Thanks to everyone. You've given me a lot of different programs to look over! (More than you thought, since looking up Rapidweaver led me to "Rapidweaver substitutes" and gave me some more Wndows links to follow, too.) I'm not up to JUST coding it all in at this point -- my skills need updating, and I want to be able to accomplish things while I add to my knowledge. I gather responsive webwork is vital at this point, so I'm focusing on programs that are still "alive" and being updated. Else I'd certainly check out the one by Affinity's parent company, Serif. Pinegrow has caught my eye, but I'll look over most of the ones I ran into before deciding on one or two to explore further. Thanks again! Cyranose
  9. firstdefence, Thanks for your response. I'm using Windows. I have Dreamweaver CS6, and it could be better for responsive website design, and I refuse to go to Adobe CC and RENT software. Mostly personal, but I have designed sites for others. I'd welcome your suggestions. Thanks, Cyranose
  10. Hi. The title says it: Is Affinity Publisher dedicated to physical publication, or does it (like Adobe InDesign) also support web "publication?" Thanks!
  11. SrPx, you raise some good points. Corel makes a book on its program Painter free available in Kindle or ePub formats, and that's what I was thinking in terms of. The Affinity programs are amazing, and so is Serif for selling its amazing programs (NOT renting them) for such reasonable rates. I too really appreciate the company's philosophy, and don't want to upset or harm them in any way. Oh, well, there goes that idea. (Hint: If Serif wanted to produce such a document and charge for it, I'd gladly purchase it, and I'm sure many others would as well.)
  12. ve2cjw, Hi. So the pdf manual is a compilation of the entire help file? I greatly appreciate your undertaking such a huge project and making this available to us all, but would you mind my suggesting an improvement on it? As you may know, many find pdfs difficult on a small tablet as the text doesn't reflow, and the pdf you made available doesn't have an index and there's no way to add one through Adobe Acrobat. Would it be possible for you to make an epub version of this file available? If you've done all you care to on this project, I can understand that, so may I ask if you'd be willing to make the text version you made the pdf from available? If you did, I could perhaps go through it and (a) enter the missing CTRL, OPTION, etc. indications where these are missing, and (b) use conversion software to produce an epub version of the file to reupload in this topic, perhaps even with an index? I already DID prepare a text version from the pdf using Adobe Acrobat Pro's features, intending to try this, but it ran most of the words together and thus is unusable for this purpose. Thanks regardless, --Cyranose
