    There are several things I miss in CorelDRAW, but am finding AD/AP is becoming more of a complete replacement!

  1. I had asked this years ago, since Illustrator and CorelDRAW have plugins (Silhouette Connect), I was hoping that AD would be able to have one as well. The response was that it was something that had to come from Silhouette. However, I recently found there is a free Inkscape plugin that can be used with a Cameo. So now I'm wondering why someone from Affinity can't do the same?
  2. Several things - I did finally get it working. Yes, I am wanting changes to show up in a JPG format within a folder. I'm working on a project that is being proofed, and changes made, and I keep exporting each time I change so that it's available to the other person. And yes, it is on iCloud, so that could be the issue. The two things I did (and not sure if if was one, the other, or both that fixed it) but I saved the AD file in the same folder as the export folder. I also went in and Unticked Continuous, then resticked it. Weird but it's now working. THANK YOU SO MUCH for your responses on this!!!
  3. So..... I tried Continuous Export with Affinity Photo and it worked fine. I saved the file and then opened it with Designer, and then it continuously exported. So I tried starting a file in AP, then creating and exporting slices in AD, but same as before. Went back to AP to verify, and now I can't continuously export from AP. The export settings are all the same. I have tried saving in different locations on my hard drive but that hasn't made any difference. I can't figure out why Photo worked at first, then quit. But assuming it's the same thing as with Designer.
  4. Same issue with the file you had. And if I try to manually export from within the Export Persona, I still get the error message, "The following files...." Could it be some kind of rewrite permission on my computer???? I'm baffled.
  5. Yes, as in the first screenshot. Exported first to choose the location, then checked the Continuous.
  6. I might add that I tried the Continuous with a file I was working on, then after reading some of the issues, started with a much simpler file, created new files, changed location to be exported (all on my Mac Hard drive) but get the same result whether I am working with text or shapes, changing color, sizes, fonts, etc. Result is the same in each case.
  7. I have just started using the Export Persona, but can not get the Continuous to work. I am on a Mac, with version 1.10.1 If I go through File / Export, export works fine, always has. And if I use the Export Persona to set up slices, and choose Export Slices to a new location, it works. However if I want to export into a previously used folder, I get a message: The following files will either be overwritten or cannot be exported." It will list all of my selected slices. My three options are Cancel, which obviously cancels; Export, which will then overwrite all of the previous files; and Export only new items, which does nothing. Because of this, I am suspicious that for some reason it's not triggering as new content. Any help or suggestions?
  8. Probably not the case, but if your hard drive is full, and depending on the settings, it is possible that it's not downloaded if there are other items downloaded between uses.
  9. THANK YOU!!! My eyes aren't getting better with age. 🙂
  10. Wow! Looking forward to using 1.9 but someone accidentally shrunk the Transparency Icon on the Swatches Panel. At first, I thought it had been moved!!! PLEASE could we have it bigger again?
  11. I saw this in the Beta, excited to get it in the MAS version!!! It will simplify my process a lot!!!
  12. Ok, I just figured it out - you have to move it WAY to the right now.
  13. Hopefully someone can help me as I'm starting to think I'm losing my mind. I've been using AD / AP for years and have gotten into the habit of dragging an object from Finder into my project, then in the layers panel, dragging the object under and slightly over below a shape in the layers panel to do the equivalent of paste inside. (that's so much easier!!) Now all of a sudden, I have to have the object in my project, then cut, then paste inside the desired object. What changed? My settings? An update???
