  1. I'm still using High Sierra. The problems I reported back in 2019 were fixed with the latest update. Since you're using Catalina you may have to wait until an AF tech can help you because I am not having any problems right now.
  2. A while back I asked if the 96 PPI resolution for panoramas, stacks, focus merge, and HDR merging would be fixed so that the final rendering would reflect the original 300 PPI of the source images. I noticed that it has been fixed when rendering panoramas using the TIFF format for the source images. However, I just tried to render a panorama with the source images being in the Radiance (HDR) format and the finished resolution of the pano was 96 PPI even though the source images were 300 PPI. Is this just an oversight by the development department or is it a bug? Just wonder, because even though I don't use Radiance or EXR formats often it is annoying to have to manually reset the final resolution to 300 PPI before doing my final editing. I mostly use Radiance and EXR for stacks and focus merging. I did a test and found that when using Stack or Focus merge I get the same 96 PPI resolution on the final rendering. Although this is not a priority fix I was wondering if this would be remedied in the next release so that when I use EXR or Radiance formats the final rendering will be the same as the source images.
  3. Fortunately this problem was just a nuisance. But hopefully it will be fixed in the next release in case I need to add another preset.
  4. That is the same thing I see when I tried to rename an existing preset I created with the older AP 1.8. This problem started with the 1.9.
  5. Just downloaded and installed the new update for AP 1.9.1. The export problem for TIFF Lab color seems to be repaired. It no longer crashes when trying to open Lab color files or when exporting LUT. But there is still one problem; it will not allow me to add, delete, or rename custom Export Presets. I have a custom TIFF export preset I wanted to rename to better distinguish it from the default preset but when I go to manage presets the buttons for "add" "delete" and "rename" will not work. Is there a workaround I don't know about or is this another bug that needs fixing?
  6. Yes, MEB, I already know about the Beta version. I have been using it to work with my LAB color files. But it is an extra step in my development process since all of my custom presets are on the main program. Hopefully you will have the new update out soon.
  7. LAB does have some advantages over RGB. LAB was originally invented to mimic the colors perceived by the human eye. Although I am not creating vectors like you I like to archive my finished images in LAB color for printing purposes. When I print with my LAB images I find that the colors of the print are visually identical to what I see on the screen. When I used to print in RGB mode certain shades of red and blue would never look come out right in the print. As MEB said in his reply there is a Beta version that can handle LAB color. I don't have Design or Publisher, but if you are getting the same crash when it tries to export or open a LAB color file then the problem is in the base coding of the program, so make sure to keep sending in those crash reports. They can't fix it if they don't know about it.
  8. I have been exporting my finished images as TIFF 32 Bit HDR files to preserve all the color and details of the Camera RAW image after development. I then use the Beta version to create 16 Bit LAB for final archiving. The reason I don't use the Beta version to do everything is because all of my custom presets are on the main program. Using the Beta version to export a Lab TIFF from the 32 bit HDR TIFF is an extra step, but at least the Beta version enables me to complete the work. Hopefully they will have an update soon that corrects these problems in the main program so that I don't have to keep using the Beta for the final export step.
  9. I don't have Design, but if it uses the same base coding as AP for its export functions then it might be the same problem. I downloaded the Beta version of 1.9.1 which is able to open 16 bit LAB TIFF. You'll have to contact a moderator to see if there is a Beta version for Design that has this problem fixed.
  10. The one I downloaded was for my Mac. I imagine they have a version for windows, but I don't know where to get it. You might want to look over the other support threads or contact AP support directly.
  11. I don't know if this has been asked yet, but I downloaded the AP 1.9.2 beta and when I opened it the program asked me to register it. I bypassed that message since I wanted to see if the problems I reported in 1.9.0 were truly fixed. But I was wondering, if I do decided to register the Beta version will it interfere with the main program already on my Mac? I was also wondering if I can keep the Beta version on my Mac to use as a backup in case I have further problems with the original program I bought?
  12. It took quite a while to download, about 45 minutes, but it does seem to work on my Mac. It did work when I used it to open a LAB color file that was a problem for AP 1.9 But all of my Camera Raw Development presets and Custom Export presets are on the main program, so I will only use the Beta version for opening problem files until the new update becomes available for the main program.
  13. I'll download and try it, but I have never installed zip compressed programs on my Mac. Every program I downloaded for my Mac was a DNG file. If it does not install I will let you know.
