    Kip, the image in your post is a cmyk .jpg

    Oh whoops! At one point the blue used to be a spot color (when it was going to press) I don't know how I switched it over to cmyk. It was going to a cmyk printer at one point. That's probably the reason. Yes, as @Alfred said there is no need to log-in to Instagram. I am not sure why you are getting a log-in window instead the account page like he is but you probably don't need to see it at this point anyways.

  2. We have a logo that is a royal blue and it looks fine when I export it, meaning it looks like it does in the Affinity doc but it becomes a very light turquoise blue once I bring it into some other applications. I am exporting as a jpg since it is going to the web. Any idea on why I am getting this major color shift?

    To see a blue which is closer to what it should be you can see the icon on our Instagram. I set up the IG years ago so I don't know why that logo export worked and what I might have done differently. It should have been exported from designer as well. https://www.instagram.com/cascadeprecision/

    It didn't really need to be that big but I couldn't find the buttons to easily make it smaller.

  3. How strange, I don't think I changed the location of the apps. I always put the stable and beta apps in the application folder. There is a lot of goofiness going on with the App Store though. Now that new betas came out I might just try and download them to see if the new versions act any different for some reason? I wonder if that would do anything.

    That was my experience (I'm also using Mojave) and I did have to re-kill appstoreagent between updating AP and updating AD but I got there in the end.

    They did eventually download for me. I had to do the force quit and just wait a really long time. If it still takes that long in the future I probably have to try downloading it before going to bed at night.

    It may take a few go's but you have to have MAS open while you force quit appstoreagent - yes apple is telling people to upgrade to Big Sur which should fix the problem, but like a lot of users, I need CS5 and a few other apps that won't run on anything past Mojave - they've also been telling users to reinstall Mojave which, I' gather is also a temporary fix for the bug   - I also found that booting from an old El Capitan volume and downloading worked - this App Store bug seems to be Mojave specific - Lets hope Apple fix this?

    It only seems to be effecting the Affinity apps now. The force quit trick only fixed the other apps not made by Serif. Last week also had updates for Slack, Things, and Telegram. They all installed. Is it partly something Serif is doing that needs to be fixed?

    Is it possible for the people who sent the .Ai file to drop the version compatibility a bit

    I think they could, it is basically just a line drawing. So if the latest version can export as CS6 that would work. I have been wanting a document that explains the Illustrator / PDF connection so I will look that over.

  7. I had something really weird happen. The place where I work sent me an Illustrator file to open. I couldn't open it in Illustrator CS6, couldn't open it in Affinity 1.8.4. I eventually got the file to open with iDraw which I don't think has seen an update in years!! Does that makes sense to anyone else? That makes no sense to me at all. I would think the native program it's self or a modern competitor to Illustrator would be the best at opening it.

    While I understand the calls for Serif to produce a RAW editor like Lightroom, that market is already crowded with paid-for and free alternatives such as ON1 Photo RAW and Darktable. I'm not sure that it's worth their while entering that saturated market while they have other very good existing products that need to be kept up to date.

    Yes, I agree now too. I think the original post was from three years ago before I tried good competitors like Capture One Pro and especially Capture One Pro 20.1. I still think they have a little ways to got in order to become a major player in with Desktop Publishing.

  9. I wish Apple would put help with their Photos extension developers if they were going to open their product up to the 3rd party. Which ever program has most of the error they could put more focus on working together to solve it over releasing the next version of Photos. That was supposed to be one of the main reasons Photos was replacing iPhoto and Aperture. Oh well

    I suspect part of the problem with them solving the Affinity bugs in Apple Photos is that it only seems to affect some users. 

    Yes, I can verify that as well. I just had a chance to play with it on my Catalina laptop and it half works. Develop extension is fine but I can't save adjustments from the full Affinity app. Weird that Mojave, Photos 4 would work perfect. At least working partially is a step in the right direction.

  11. My favorite Catalina feature is splitting iTunes apart into several different apps but if it means it will screw up my workflow then I can't update. Photoshop CS6 could run on Catalina with a work around. They were showing this off when Catalina first came out. I hope the newer Catalina point fixes have made comparability even better though.

    On1 has a lot going for it as the whole raw edit process is non-distructive

    Yeah, especially layers within the DAM app. The only other one I knew which did that was Pixelmator Pro. The problem with the Pixelmator Pro extension is that you can't open several photos at the same time due to the way Photos only lets you have one photo open at a time.

  13. Can you still work with Photoshop CS6? I am actually fine with loosing support for LR, especially now that C1 20.1 just came out most of the best parts of LR.

    I didn't realize Catalina was so much more buggy than Mojave. Most of my experience with the two OSs has been of a roughly similar stability. I'll have to test on the Photos 5 extensions now for sure. I would have thought after having five almost six Catalina point releases they would have fixed most of the issues. It seems like now that they are doing public betas for each MacOS release they could streach the betas out a bit longer to really squash all known bugs.
