  1. hi, i did not try out everything new in version 1.8.1 (mac), but i immediatly tried to use luminar 4 as a plugin. and no, it didn't work. nothing has changed at that point since the former version. luminar is a rather popular piece of software, i would think. i almost can't believe it's ignored in this new version. regards jan
  2. hi, i don't think you're wrong. i have the same problem with the greater than signs in the page number fields when the imported .pdf file is generated by pages (and the page numbers are generated automatically). in my case i used the font georgia. in publisher i removed the page number text fields by hand. i thought the solution would be to make a master page with only a page number field and to apply i to all my pages, but that doesn't work. regards, jan van de ven
  3. i just created a new but related topic: i tried this work-around to create mirroring pages, and found this problem.
  4. this only works for elements on a page, not for the page itself. i'm looking for the possibility to mirror the full page (i.e. the master pages), grid and guidelines included, to get exactly symmetrical pages. i can't find that option in affinity publisher.
  5. yes, that's it. works perfectly now. the problem was that i followed the path to the plug-in directory. but slash only was the solution. thanks for the help.
  6. the three screenshots show the sequence in the way you suggested. yes, the nik plug-ins show in the filter menu, but the nik apps stop at the window by saying my trial version has expired. accessing the same plugins via photoshop or lightroom gives no problem.
  7. thanks for your answer, but it's not the solution for the problem. i emptied all fields of the plug-ins section. restarted. followed your suggestion. no plugins were revealed in the listing of plug-ins in the preferences. i tried the filters menu, but: no nik plug-ins. then i emptied all fields and installed the nik apps from the photoshop plug-ins folder in the normal way and clicked the authorize global button en followed the procedure. with the same result.
  8. yes! i can use my preference since a 'clear' during restart with the control-key pressed. but now all my nik plug-ins are gone. adding my nik collection again only results in a list of unknown applications. i can find them in the filters menu, but each of them opens as can be seen on the screenshot i will upload with this entry: close the window or buy the product. neither button works. in the former version of affinity my nik filers worked flawless. any suggestion how to solve this problem? btw: i also use macphun plug-ins (like luminar, tonality and intensify) in lightroom, but the
  9. yes, i'm using live dof in this case and as you can see in the attached screenshot preserve alpha is checked. the problem appears to be in the clarity slider and/or the preserve alpha checkbox. lines and dots disappear when i either slide the clarity slider to the ultimate left (value 0 px) or when i un-check the perserve alpha. just found out: there's one blending mode where the problem doesn't appear: 'lighter color'. but i'm not sure if this wil be the same with other photos.
  10. hi, after using depth of field blur in affinity photo, my image showed lines and squares and some tiny dots. large squares as seen in the affinity u.i. (see .png screenshot); small squares after exporting the file as .jpg (see .jpg attachment). i saved the .afphoto-file, but that's over 100 mb, so i can't upload it here. is this a bug or am i doing something wrong? jan van de ven trying to reproduce the problem, i discovered that lines, squares and dots only appear when using the clarity slider of the depth of field options.
