  1. Aloha y'all. . . I'm curious about building a family-tree structure in a horizontal fashion across a two-page spread. I have all three Affinity flavors - so building it in Photo or Designer is no obstruction here. My best notion to this point is to build a table, input the data as I need... then go back and hide the unused lines and boxes to give it a more specifically-designed appearance... in that fashion, I use as many as I need as I go and won't need to design it in completed form before I start putting names into it... (IF that gibberish makes any sense to anyone else but me...LOL) * * * Any hints or tips are welcomed... IF anyone needs more detailed information about what I'm specifically trying to do, I can supply that. * * * Born on Maui Isle, Home now, North Carolina; Aloha y'all. . .
  2. I've come looking for a spot to file the very same complaint... Mine does attempt to save and ends with COULD NOT SAVE FILE DEVICE IS OUT OF SPACE version I've tried saving on three separate devices two ext hard drive and on the partitioned hard drive on the PC. (sigh) * * * I solved my problem by deleting and reinstalling v. no problems since then. Until that time. . .
  3. Well, well, well... it appears that the update isn't going so well... and I'm not the only one with problems... (sigh) I'll hold out a bit longer on the update, and we can see what happens in a couple of days... * * * Until that time. . .
  4. Thanks Walt, I'll go hunt those rascals down... (grin) Looks like I'm searching the temp folder for some clues about what the heck went wrong... (grin) * * * Setup Log was fairly straight-forward... [ Trying to start process: C:\Users\earlj\AppData\Local\Temp\AffinitySetup\f8711d73-87e5-11e9-87aa-9cb6d01fd6e4\SetupUI.exe /log=true Succeeded: 1 Waiting for process to finish... Exit code: 0 ] The SetupUI is attached below... ending with... [ +Info: === Logging stopped: 05-Jun-19 19:02:42 === +Setting result page message: Setup failed +Switching to page: Result +Operation finished +Main window close requested ] * * * And with all my computer user hours over the years, (beginning with a TRS-80 back in the day) that's about the ONLY piece of the whole thing I understand... LOL * * * Thanks again for any help you might provide. * * * Until that time. . . SetupUI.log
  5. * * * Here's the result of my last attempt a few minutes ago... FAILED ... * * * Attempt procedure: I shut down the computer for a few minutes. Booted up; went directly to the update file; started fine... passed the "Preparing" stage which really had me thrilled... A few seconds later in the Preparing stage... FAILED message appears... WIN 10 Home, 1803 - 17134.765 (sigh) * * * Until that time. . .
  6. Thanks Walt... Let me check them out... I just downloaded the update again from my own Order History page... I'd cross my fingers on this, but it's hard to type that way. Thanks again... * * * WIN 10 Home 1803 - Build 17134.765 Let me go try the install again... * * * Until that time. . .
  7. * * * I purchased Photo from here. I come back to download the 1.7 update from an email message link. It downloads fine. I start the update... a second or two later it indicates it failed without any error message or further guidance. I come back to get some help or perhaps download it again... I find it is a problem child... AND also cannot find any link to download the update again. Wait a minute... I just tried it again to see if I have any additional information... It will not run because it has problems with 64-bit version of Windows... Is there a download link for 64-bit Windows...? * * * I have logged in and can see my purchase in my account log. Where exactly is the Download Photo Update button located? For 64-bit versions...? * * * Until that time. . .
  8. Aloha y'all. . . I am thrilled that Affinity is becoming a bit more widespread and advancing nicely as the logical replacement for those greedy "rascals" over at Adobe... (wink) * * * I am thinking of using it as the tool to create and distribute a family reunion DVD-based document along with images from past reunions on the same DVD. I expect to create links in the text document that will have links to any images in which that individual appears. Is that sort of thing possible? I know we can probably link URLs on the Internet and bookmarks located in the same document... I'd just like to be able to create an SQL report from a database; include that list in the Publisher narrative; and have links from Publisher pull up the images from a folder. I do not necessarily want the image to appear in the report, just a link to a separate folder in which that image resides on the same DVD as the report. * * * Thanks for any assistance, suggestions, recommendations, solutions, or links to other sources... I don't need a complete solution and thorough tutorial... just a bit of guidance... I can find them and read them myself... () ... really, I can... () * * * Until that time. . .
  9. @walt... Thanks for the tip. . . it's a good work around... it'll permit a person to make as many pages as they want without tugging and pulling on a Master Page concept... * * * I just tried to give you a thanks... but I'm fresh out of "reactions" ... (sigh) What a crazy way to run a railroad... * * * Until that time. . .
  10. * * * Very good Tony0. . . Eye see it clearly... "Potatoes have eyes, Many more than humans have; Can they see me too...?" (grin) * * *
  11. Thanks for all the helpful tips, everyone... My membership modifier pretty much says it all... newbie. I've had lots of experience with text building software going back to WordStar and MS Frontpage; thank goodness, we don't do things now like we did back then... I can appreciate the workflow of anyone who has been involved with a computer productivity tool for a day or two... and I also appreciate their knowledge and skill with their tool of choice. * * * I'm just curious about the notion of bringing a new productivity tool to market and presenting the notion that it'll do things exactly the way we've always done it and become accustomed to through years of use of other products...? "It's new! It's exciting! It's faster! It's more powerful! Just do it the way we've always done it, and you'll be fine." How would products improve and expand their usefulness if not through innovation and daring to do things otherwise ...? * * * Understood that many companies have specific forums and discussion groups for just those sorts of recommendations and suggestions... Oftentimes, however, their feedback isn't quite the same as these types of open forums which invite people to voice their opinions and get help in return ... in a bit more timely fashion than a programmers' recommendation page... (wink) * * * I'm just hoping that everyone can get a fair hearing and some sound advice - at least as much as I have ... * * * Again, thanks for the advice and help ... and for displaying such a generous willingness to help in the first place. I really do appreciate it... * * * "Born on Valley Isle, Home now, North Carolina; Aloha y'all..." Until that time. . .
  12. * * * I'm with you Roger. . . Master Pages are pretty much useless IF they can't hold empty text and image boxes... I might want to alter the size of a text or image box when I get to the editing part... OR ignore some completely on certain pages... IF they are there in advance... Drawing them as I need them get tedious very quickly. * * * Aside from that, why would anything I do on a text page be allowed to alter the Master Page. . .? * * * Here's the problem I have... I create a Master Page and when I bring that format into a document page, it alters the size of the box... Images below... (sigh)
