  1. You can do two columns now. I generally don't use that format but it is currently available.
  2. And also it needs to be added in to the current version 1.7. High res monitors have been out for the better part of a decade.
  3. Doubling the size wouldn't be make them big though. It would make them go from microscopic sized to almost approaching medium size. When I read an article on the new Photoshop I saw that they were catching up with some of the exclusive Affinity features and also adding many options for change the size of icons so if this doesn't get addressed Serif might have some problems. The first retina display on a Mac came out about 6 to 7 years ago so this ultra high res tech is actually brand new at this point. I would have expected it many years ago. The current size is also wasteful on a 27" display. Nearly half of the toolbar is just blank so it would barely be taking up any more space!! The current amount of screen space is like what... maybe 2%? So doubling it would be going up from 2% to 3%?
  4. A good part of the release notes pointed out the changes being made to to the UI in 1.7. I sure hope the tiny icons on the left hand side of toolbar get doubled in size before 1.7 gets released. Programs like Graphic and Quark are much better sized.
  5. I must have forgotten about adding that shortcut. Going to the develop persona is usually the first thing I do so it made sense to set it up that way.
  6. If you type control+shift+R into the box I bet it will stop you in 1.7. It will probably work in 1.6
  7. It turns out something else is interfering which is what I would have guessed. Probably a new 1.7 feature has taken that shortcut. There might be some other shortcut for develop in 1.6 Windows since Windows doesn't have a command key.
  8. I used to use a shortcut to get into the develop persona (command+shift+d ?) but it doesn't seem to be working anymore. Did that go away?
  9. This works too, I just need to find the texture to overlay the image with. I have heard photocopiers can be good to get this technique as well. Another student I was doing this assignment with used the photocopier to warp text by moving the text as it was copying. It was a pretty neat effect! I look into it. If I had a decent selection of filters to pick from I probably wouldn't need Photoshop any more. The nice thing about computers though is that they give you some control over to what degree you want to apply an effect which is nice. The old tech way I am sure could bring up different great results.
  10. I can see halftone being used at some point. I don't think I would describe the images as low quality in the same way a low res image would be. With this album cover you have the text that has been spray painted on top scratched at bottom with an image that is leaving out just the amount of detail that the designer decided on in a filter. I know I talked about newspaper in the title of this topic but I should have said I am trying to find an assortment of dirty looking filter / effects that can be combined in several collages across the project. Just wondering too, are there third filters available for Affinity?
  11. I wonder why that is? I would be nice to do more plug-in/filter work with Affinity. @GarryP That is a pretty neat magazine effect. The main look I am going is for a punk rock styled book (here is a few pages.) Basically I am just trying to make the images more rough looking whether that be through newsprint or other techniques.
  12. Are there instructions for how to properly install the PS filters into Affinity? I couldn’t find how to do that under preferences. I assume that is a way to search for Photoshops filter folder? I never knew you could get similar effects just by using adjustment layers! I’ll have to try experimenting with that. I am doing an assortment of collages using about five different filters. I wonder how much can be done with adjustment layers?
  13. It seems like there would just be a way to add filters in the menu? I noticed that at the bottom of the Filters menu is a menu item call plugins, I would think that is where you add additional filters that are not installed by default?
  14. I have been doing projects in Photoshop that use a newsprint style filter like the one shown below but I was wondering if someone could tell me where I can go to get these type of filters that work with Affinity? Also can Photoshop filters be brought across?
  15. What email address do I send it to? It only crashes when I double click on a text box. When I originally said it crashed by trying to pull it down that was wrong.
  16. The text block doesn't go all the way down to the bottom of the text so when I try to expand it by pulling it down or double clicking on it AD will crash every time.
  17. It seemed like there were still some issues with picas that were being ironed out? That is the only reason I can think of.
  18. I am glad I was able to find a way to make this work but I hope this doesn't keep happening in the future. It takes time to have to reset all the individual letters. I hope the developers can fix whatever happened so I don't need to reset all the letter spacing.
  19. I have never owned an iPad just Macs with modern operating systems. Affinity asked to download some fonts before opening this file but I am not sure why. I can't remember if I mentioned this but this file used to work fine for over a year. I just found out if I type some new text and change it to HanziPen SC it works! But there is no way I can change that existing text over which means I have to go back and redo the spacing. You can see in the screen shot I typed it out on the pasteboard. In case anyone was wondering this was a school project where I had to convey the opposite of an emotion with text which is what I thought HanziPen represents. The one on the black background was the type I used to convey grief.
  20. Set to none for both the character and paragraph styles. Affinity Designer, originally done on a Sierra machine now on High Sierra. I can't remember how I obtained the font. I attached the full Font Book screen shot.
  21. I opened my document up today and Affinity switched the font over to something else entirely. I opened up Font Book next to it so you can see what it should be. It is listed right in the font box but it comes across as something else entirely. How do I fix this?
  22. Wow, I didn't know Publisher converted 3p6! Interesting, I haven't really been using Publisher much beyond the first week since I don't plan on it getting roughly where I want it to be in the near future. I might use it more in a year depending on much it advances.
  23. This works with Quark but currently it doesn't appear that you can use units of measurement that way in Publisher. This needs to be done as easily as Quark.
  24. And both the x and y at the same time. At one point I think InDesign only let you change one at a time.
