  1. I don't think Affinity has this feature. I've never seen it / can't find it.
  2. I can confirm that I have 1 normal Publisher entry and 2 separate beta entries too.
  3. You can find the links for the old versions here. Affinity Designer (Windows) Affinity Photo (Windows) Affinity Publisher (Windows)
  4. Hello everyone! This saturday our servers' files have been encrypted by EKING ransomware and I'm afraid that my Affinity product license files might got out in the process. None of my local files were damaged, only the network volumes got encrypted up to the letter "M". I quickly removed everything related to Affinity from my PC at work. What's the general approach when something like this happens? Should I be worried? Since my license can only be used at most on 5 machines, if people on the internet gets hold of it, will I get blocked somehow when I try to use it later? Can I install the Affinity suite back? Thank you for any info you can give me.
  5. Just came across this freezing issue. Good to hear it's already at dev team. Thanks!
  6. Oh? Did not know that. I don't know where I got that key combination from. Thanks!
  7. Did not have this issue, although I did a full reset after upgrading by holding down Ctrl + Alt + Shift while opening Publisher to avoid any settings problems.
  8. Hi, the title says it all I think. I tried to import our quarterly product catalogue which we work on in InDesign. I tried to import it as an IDML in Publisher 1.8, but the following things happen: Have to wait several minutes (3-5) to even see something happening, after dragging the IDML file onto Publisher. When it opens and I try to move any image (snapping turned off), it takes about 4-5 seconds for Publisher to move that image over. Cannot save the file as .afpub, Publisher just hangs. The images the catalogue uses are wildly varied in size, from small 72 dpi all the way to A0 size 300 dpi images. The IDML file with all the linked files is roughly 7 GB in size. Now, I understand that IDML import is a very new feature. I'm just trying to figure out if it's on my end or it's a generic problem. If I import roughly 100 images from the same catalogue into a newly created Publisher document, then all is well, everything's snappy and I can save it easily (it only takes about 2 seconds, just wow), also it opens in about a second or so. Also, you guys are making great strides and I did not regret buying the holy Affinity trio. Thanks!

  9. Hi Callum, I look forward to how you plan to improve upon it. All your software are great as is, but there will be always something to do. Thanks!
  10. Hi, At the office I do a lot of online banners in Photoshop which require a lot of variations in size. My workflow usually consists of placing and embedded image onto one of the artboards (I have about 10 artboard / PSD), converting it to a smart object, then going into the smart object and masking out the background of said product. This a a huge time-saver in the long run. I can copy-paste the same smart object all over the place and all the things I do inside the smart object get updated on all of them. I know Designer's Symbols feature is somewhat like this, but I'd like to be able to do this in Photo since its raster tools are superior. Also when I used ~6 symbols in a single AD document with about 10 artboards, it was very unstable, meaning AD crashed frequently when I tried to modify the symbols. My question, will Affinity Photo or Designer include something like Convert to Smart Object (I know they use nondestructive placement by default, so no need for smart object), so that we wouldn't need to create a separate AD/AP file, save that and manually place it inside the document? OR is there something similar which I do not know about?
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
