  1. Just my opinion, of course, but I think the creepy look of those borrowed eyes slightly spoils what is a rather splendid overall result.
  2. WebP is not new. Like JPEG but unlike PNG, it’s a ‘lossy’ format; like PNG but unlike JPEG, it supports transparency.
  3. For the equivalent of Shift-click, use two separate fingers to tap on the last layer in the sequence. For the equivalent of Ctrl-click, swipe across each of the desired layers in the Layer Studio.
  4. ‘Legacy’ refers to PagePlus and all other Serif ‘Plus’ software products, none of which are sold or officially supported now. You can’t open PagePlus files directly in any of the Affinity apps, but (as @John Rostron posted as I was typing this) you can publish as PDF and then open the PDF file.
  5. Unlike the betas, there isn’t a separate forum for the retail release of each product. The Affinity Support & Questions section puts all Affinity on Desktop Questions (macOS and Windows) in one forum, and all Affinity on iPad Questions in another.
  6. If you’re unsure how to take a screen recording, please refer to the following thread:
  7. I’m sure Macs can be used for cloud storage, but I don’t know if they are ever used as web servers.
  8. Er … yes, that’s what I was saying, or trying to say!
  9. Windows servers are case-insensitive, but servers running Linux or any *nix variant are not, so ‘farnsworth.jpg’, ‘Farnsworth.JPG’, and ‘Farnsworth.jpeg’ can (and usually do) all refer to different resources.
  10. It’s easy to jump to the last page if that’s what you prefer to see first.
  11. N.P.M. = Non Participating Member To my way of thinking, non-participation should mean simply stepping aside.
  12. An artboard can have any fill colour you like (applied via the Colour Studio).
  13. Should the two pieces of ‘“Appointment” text contain the same words? The lower one is only displaying one line. By the way, the comma is superfluous. The text currently tells us “the previous working day will be cancelled by management” but I’m quite sure it doesn’t mean to suggest that the working day will be cancelled by anyone! It should simply say “Appointments not confirmed by 1pm the previous working day will be cancelled management”.
  14. If you’re creating a book in PDF and/or Kindle format, I’m not sure what you mean by “hardcover” in this context. That aside, if your cover illustration is a picture with overlaid text, PNG will almost always look better than JPEG because there won’t be any compression artefacts.
  15. I think that’s because you’re trying to view it at something other than the display’s native resolution. Try using a screen resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels (HD) instead of 2560 x 1440 pixels (QHD).
  16. Please see: https://www.high-logic.com/font-editor/fontcreator/tutorials/the-difference-between-truetype-and-opentype-fonts
  17. The font also works in AD on iPad, although the kerning between pairs of capital letters is rather poor.
