    Do we have any eta for the official 1.8 release that will finally fix the (horrendous) bug AP has had since May 2018 that won't let AP save edits directly back to Photos? (Maybe an eta approximation based on how long it has taken official AP versions to be released after the first beta was released?)

    Have you tried Pixelmator Pro? I feel like they got Apple Photos integration down. It even has layers support right from within Apple Photos! Why can't other DAMs have that feature? Capture One's layers are basically just adjustment layers, which is great, but it would be nice to have object layers as well. I assume there are Affinity features you need or want but thought you might not know about how good Pixelmator Pro works recently.

    Open button just bring a quicklook view where you cannot ever zoom

    I haven't got Quicklook to work with Affinity on iPad at all. Are you saying that Quicklook works but just that you can't zoom into the document? Being able to access the feature at all would be a huge improvement for me. The only thing it has ever opened for me (on iOS, iPadOS) is very common formats like jpg, Pdf, etc. File management on iPad just seems flaky to me. For an example I have been able to Airdrop between my Mac and iPad.

    As the Affinity file format remains undocumented, there is no way that Final Cut would be able to have support for opening the native Affinity files. The question would remain whether Affinity can export to some format that Final Cut can read with everything you want transferring over.

    I would presume it would work very similarly to the way Photoshop is supported. Somehow Serif needs to get around this completely closed system. It needs to work much better with other products like Capture One, Quark etc. This is especially true for products they don't offer alternative to like video programs. Adobe even has their own video solution and yet they still support Final Cut. For Serif to not offer this option, even though they may never have a video option is nuts. They need to get their act together in this area.

    Quoting Serif - April 30th 2019, Facebook:


    I always figured that once they get through most of the bug fixes this will be the point at which they can then switch over to bigger updates. Given the bugs and crashes I have encountered with Publisher there will most likely be smaller updates for a while. I can see Photo and Designer moving on to bigger updates before Publisher. 

  5. @Chris B I wanted to make a correction when I said the beta didn't have this problem. I just came across a previous post where I talked about the beta's problem with color correction but I also had the problem of the layers panel not showing up. I don't have access to my iMac at the moment but I bet clearing the user data will solve this problem.

    127 and 128 have been by far the buggiest versions of Photo 1.7 for me. When I go to studio > layers the layers panel won't open. Some layers have color shifts. Everything works in 125 which is still installed on one of my Macs.

    Broken how? Do you have a screenshot? 

    By broken I mean when layers is checked under View > Studio > Layers nothing shows up. I didn't make a bug report yet since I thought what this beta did was fix that. This bug only happens on my iMac and not my MacBook. This is similar to the another bug on Publisher (that I did report) where what was wrong only happened on the iMac and not the MacBook.

  7. I got an award this year for my project final and they wanted me to make a short video for it. This was mostly for the book (which is on my Instagram profile) but I thought it was worthy of also bringing up here since the poster was done in Affinity Designer. I first tried to make it in Quark where the book was made but realized it was too difficult to rotate individual letters due to Quark text box funkiness. Maybe I will make a book in Affinity someday too!

    Hmm... maybe flip them upside down?

    But seriously what I was think more is instead of having small B on the icon quite similar to notifications in other apps maybe experiment with scale and different colors. I point out before the Firefox beta icon worked pretty well. They removed the fox so the icon just became the globe. It was familiar enough, as of course it should be, but different enough to tell which was beta and not at a glance.

    What does it say in Document > Resource Manager ?

    Does it show the document as Linked, Embedded, Missing?

    Oh good, I couldn't find where you were supposed to go to check resources. A weird thing happened, I shut the app down and restarted it and then the image got sharp again! Under resource manager everything is marked as linked. It hope it says good now.

    I wonder why they choose to go with that program over the others?

    It seems like most people go with whatever comes in a bundle. Makes sense in some ways, that was the reason I went with Acrobat after all. Why buy something else if the product in the bundle works? Right now I am planning on just going with pdfToolbox. I think the biggest issue is for it to do a lot of things rather then to primarily consider it from a pricing angle. If one of the those features will come in handy down the line this really matters to me when on a deadline to get something out. I downloaded the trail so I will have to keep using it this week and see how it works out.
