  1. Affinity Photo on Mac is a stable product the only major bug for me is with extensions. The whole point of Apple's Photo app was to leave the more advanced features up to the 3rd party development and I find that component of the app still lacking. Other then Affinity being broken it takes far too many clicks to get in and out of 3rd party editing tools. I think most people where think that Photos could eventually work as a good replacement for Aperture that was released so long ago. I think you should expect more from Apple because I think Serif has been doing a much more solid job in the pro Photo area then Apple as of late. The rest of the tool works very well so I'm sure that is why is sells so good.
  2. Usually it takes them close to a year to put out a major feature product update and we are currently 4 months past 1.9 getting released. Publisher isn't going to go another 8 months before they put out multiple service releases. I don't think 1.10 would make sense for a release that is purely a bug fix release. Unless 1.10 ends up being a very minor feature update or is all about maintenance updates like 1.6. A lot of tech goes with "tick-tock-tick" release cycles alternating between major and minor updates. If 1.10 is a smaller release between major ones that would be fine by me.
  3. I have to wonder if Publisher won't continue with 1.9.x numbering scheme given that it is the one app that really has it's share of glitches yet to be fixed. I can't imagine them waiting until the next feature update of that product before issuing more bug fixes to the stable product. I also wonder if 1.10 will be as big of a feature release as 1.9 or if it will be something in between a smaller bug release and something like 1.9?
  4. Also Photo doesn't seem to have a ton of major bugs on my end so they might as well start adding features while software like Publisher keeps squashing bugs. The only major bug I have is that the Affinity Photos extension in the Apple Photos is still as broken as ever. I see this as being half Apple's fault. The two companies should be working together to fix that.
  5. Apple has had multiple versions of their beta products being developed at the same time recently. When MacOS 11.4 was a RC they were already onto the 11.5 beta.
  6. That's right, I always forget about that check box. I expect to see it in the main interface area instead of buried in preference box. I guess that is because I think of the change affecting a particular corresponding artboard and not be a document wide change.
  7. Also where is the option to make the white background not show for a png? I thought it was under the "more" section where it says "matte" but it isn't doing it.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. @walt.farrell Just downloaded Affinity Photo Beta 1.9.4 and it loaded fine. I assume the other 1.9.4 software will work when it is released too! Good to know that got fixed.
  11. I wonder if this is an issue that could be fixed when the 1.9.2 of the App Store version comes out? With how bad the app store has been working I'm a bit afraid that I will uninstall Affinity and not be able to re-install it. Sometimes it has taken me days to get App Store updates to install.
  12. 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.
  13. The beta opened up on my Big Sur MacBook Pro but not on my Mojave iMac. All three apps have this problem. None of it happens on the computer.
  14. Even MacOS 11 has been having some issues with downloading app updates.I don't know what is going on with the App Store.
  15. 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.
  16. 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?
  17. Yes and it looks like the trick fixed it. Thanks for the tip! I can't believe an app store can have service like that and still take a 30% cut of the profits.
  18. I have two Macs and MAS let get the updates on one but not on the other. I have been trying to download it for days now. I really wish I didn't get Affinity through the App Store now. Is there a way to fix an App Store that doesn't download? I need to stay up on bug fixes.
  19. 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.
  20. Can you tell me how to do that? I wasn't aware that Illustrator files had embedded PDF files. I'm not sure if the file is corrupt I think it doesn't open in Illustrator just because my version is old.
  21. 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.
  22. 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.
  23. 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
