  1. Hi AndreasFurster This appears to be a .NET runtime error, possibly related to the Windows Insider program. Could you please run the following tool and provide a screenshot of your results? http://www.asoft.be/prod_netver.html Could you please also confirm, do you have Affinity installed already or is this the first attempt at installation on this machine?
  2. Hi requiredusage, Welcome to the forums This is possible in any Affinity app, using the Combine Boolean operation. I've created a quick video showing this below, after loading my background I created a white semi-transparent rectangle then typed my text above this. I then converted my text to curves and Ungrouped the auto-created group in the Layers studio. I selected the recently created rectangle, along with the aforementioned curves and used Layer>Geometry>Combine. This created one curves object that is semi-transparent, with the wording 'cut out' to be transparent. I hope this helps! Transparent Text.mp4
  3. Hi benruempler, Welcome to the forums This has been reported previously, please see the below thread:
  4. Thanks for confirming, and for the video. I believe the exported sizes changing are due to the DPI of the document, if you set your document to 300DPI, then run the exporter, do the values remain the same? If so, please revert your document back to 72DPI, return to the export Persona and untick Embed Metadata. Does this still change your output size upon export? Could you please check for any related crash logs and attach them here? This should allow us to investigate your crashing further! You can find your crash logs by opening´╗┐ Applications > Utilities > Console´╗┐
  5. Hi DrainBead It's hard to say without seeing the rest of your screen, but I'm certain we can solve this for you! Firstly go to View>Show Toolbar to bring the toolbar back, then if you double-click on the 'Tools' (or in your case Werkzeuge) text you should find the toolbar snap back into place. I hope this helps
  6. Hi Jack V., Welcome to the forums Unfortunately not, right-clicking on each brush and using the 'Move to Category' operation is the only way of doing this in Affinity currently. There is! Please see the following post: I hope this helps
  7. Doh! Perhaps I should have thought that before posting it... I'll have to take a further dive into your file, it appears to be due to the Overlay blend modes set to certain pixel layers within groups but I'm going to need a little longer to confirm this and try to find a workaround for your document, please bare with me!
  8. Hi Goldi708, Welcome to the forums Could you please upload a copy of the .ai file so I can look into this for you?
  9. Not to worry, I've spoken with our teams internally and I've been informed the our RAW engine and White Balance - along with a few other adjustments are being overhauled/improved for version 1.7, which we're currently running as an internal beta. Keep an eye on our forums here to be notified first of 1.7's beta or release, as I'm sure the update should address your concerns
  10. Hi jim33, Welcome to the forums We've also recently updated our digital certificates, however this can occasionally take a few days to update for Anti-virus systems. We recommend pausing your anti-virus, installing the application, then restarting your anti-virus. I hope this helps!
  11. Hi Scott, My sincerest apologies for the delayed response, I had accidentally turned off notifications for forum posts and therefore your reply slipped through. I've since resolved this and it shouldn't happen again. In the meantime, I'm unfortunately unable to replicate your video workflow as you've provided JPEG images, rather than RAW files, however your post appears to reference multiple cameras and RAW files, so it doesn't sound like a specific file/camera bug to me, simply our implementation of the Apple Core Engine. I'll speak with our developers and QA team and see if they have noticed similar colour degradation or over-saturated highlights and I'll report back with any information I find, many thanks for your continued patience.
  12. Could you expand on the issues you're still having? I've opened your document side-by-side on my PC and the files appear similar, with the colour picker finding similar values between the two images.
  13. Hi Alex_M This isn't something we're aware of, nor has been reported previously - it certainly isn't something I've encountered so I'm going to need some more information to investigate. If you paste the following to a Run dialogue, are there any crash reports generated when you force quit your app? %appdata%/Affinity/Photo/1.0/CrashReports Crash logs will be the easiest way to narrow down the cause, so if you could attach the latest 3 to your reply this would be more than useful. Do you regularly follow the same workflow, or does this appear to happen at random? How many images (on average) do you have open at once?
  14. Hi Silix, Welcome to the forums Unfortunately Affinity doesn't currently support these advanced blending modes so upon import it will revert to a 'Passthrough' blendmode. We hope to add these features in a future release of Affinity, unfortunately in the meantime we suggest rasterising the object/layers in Photoshop before saving as a PSD and importing into Affinity. This will ensure the look of the object is not changed, however we understand this is not ideal, my apologies!
