  1. I know it's been already reported to the developers, but wanted to inform you that I ran into this problem too with my own AD document.
  2. I wouldn't hate on Affinity personally. We have to take into account that Affinity's very small compared to Adobe and also, they don't milk you for $52.99 a month, like Adobe does. Affinity Photo is tremendously good value, but everything has its downsides. I agree though that it shouldn't take 2 years to add proper support for one of the biggest manufacturer's camera.
  3. That is indeed quite strange. Has to do something with Affinity's RAW engine I guess. I can't help you with this, but I can confirm that Photoshop does not have this problem, while in Affinity Photo the photo has a highly visible magenta shift.
  4. My only gripe is that Designer crashes fairly constantly when I use artboards to do web banners and its several different sizes. AD does not like Ctrl dragging to copy and move layers. Also, I think that Serif does development similarly as all other developers do. Their people are split up, some of the work on core features, some of them on the new ones, while someone works on fixing bugs. No human resources are taken away from core features. I might be wrong though, because Serif is a small company, so they might not have the manpower to dedicate people to distinct features.
  5. Hello, I know this is a minor issue, just wanted to you to know it exists, just in case. I did not find anything related to this on the forums, I'm sorry for double posting if it has been mentioned already. APub's loading screen icon does not match the icon used inside the software. It's also not square (1:1 ratio) like it used to be. Please see the attached screenshot. Thank you for the awesome work you do guys! Finally someone who genuinely stepped on Adobe's toes.
  6. Great to hear! Thanks for the feedback Chris!
  7. I agree with you. I'm confident that Affinity will come up with something that none of us would have predicted or maybe they'll use your suggestion, I don't know. They already fixed a lot of things that came up in the beta phase, so no worries. This would be a real challenge to implement I think, but it I can see how it might be useful on big projects. For now a simple folder system or anything that is a similar, visual organization system. I love the "Show Samples" feature! Except when using indents in styles, then it looks like it's another style's substyle which is confusing on first glance.
  8. To be fair, InDesign works the same. You need to Apply the Next Style too, not just click the style that contains this rule. Although, I agree, that most of the time it would be more useful if it would be the default setting. Maybe add a checkbox beside the setting Use Always? Also, it would be awesome to have a folder system in the Text Styles studio, similar to the Layers studio or in InDesign. It gets pretty chaotic if you have more than a few styles.
  9. Hello everyone! Publisher is chugging along very nicely. Whenever I try to apply a style to the body copy and use Next Style to indent all the following paragraphs' first lines it works fine, for the first time. When I try to edit the indent style—for example have 6pt instead of 3pt indents—it does not work. Upon checking to make sure, these paragraphs don't even have the mentioned "first line indenter" style applied, instead they have the general Body style. This approach works fine if you have a Style The Next Style applied to your text box before you start typing. I'm attaching a sample file that you might want to look at. And sorry if this problem has been posted already, I did not find anything while searching the forums. next-style-problem.afpub
  10. They are reevaluating the resource manager, so I guess they will rethink how linking and embedding works too.
  11. The assets studio panel requires some tune up in general. Reordering, sorting and editing assets for example. One thing I love about Adobe is the CC Libraries feature. Affinity assets is usable, although a bit clunky right now.
  12. I agree. Serif will think of something clever, I'm sure. We do need a better a way to manage files placed, linked or embedded in a document. The funny thing about embedded files though is that, looking at Designer and Photo, I don't think that it would be hard for Publisher to manage a publication of about 1000 embedded images. Designer already does a great job at resource management (CPU, Memory, GPU etc.). I've imported a catalogue PDF inside made with InDesign into Publisher, it had about 700 embedded 300 DPI resolution images accross 64 pages. Altough it took about 15 seconds to open the file, the performance after that was remarkable.
  13. I really don't think that you should attempt anything, especially learn a software that is not intended to be used by someone who never used some kind of similar software before. The tutorials explain just enough so we get brought up to speed, so we can test the heck out of Publisher. Please wait for the actual 1.0 release before judging the tutorial section and don't get so defensive and call someone a liar.
  14. In general, Serif needs to make their Affinity products' UI more customizable. At least, in my opinion. Adobe does a lot of UX things wonderfully, and other things horribly (including some UI and UX design ones), like that all their software are bloated like a well fed gigantic toad.
