    Stocks-Tab: Unsplash not working

    Just in case, Unsplash DOES work for me on iPad. But not on PC (Win7/64bit)

    Stocks-Tab: Unsplash not working

    Yes, the website works perfectly.
  3. Hi, when I paint on iPad, I sometimes get strange blocky artifacts that disappear when I lift pencil but re-appear when I put it down again. What are those and how do I get rid of them? iPad Pro 12.9" 2018 See video: artifacts.mkv

    [Fixed] Strange artifacts when painting

    Great, thanks!
  5. Hi, I am sure this has been asked before, but the search did not give me any good results to my question. I like working on PC better than on iPad. But for instance delicate masks are easier to draw on iPad with pencil than with a mouse on the PC version. I have not found a good way to exchange files quick and effordlessly between devices. My current method is doing it over Dropbox, but it is still kind of painful. I can only "Save" files to "my iPad". then find them in Files and send them to Dropbox from there. For some reason the filename gets lost at Save and it's renamed to "untitled.afphoto" every time. I tried an app named Airdisk Pro, but for some reason it does not work. There must be an easier and better way to do this? If it has been answered already, please kindly point me to the respactive post. Thank you!

    Moving files between iPad and PC?

    Thanks, that seems to be the easiest version.
  7. I am creating a manual, that will be exported as PDF. Is there a way to insert a working weblink into the document, so it can be clicked inside the PDF?

    Current sale on iPad until when?

    Woohoo, thank you so much. That will give me a chance to still buy for the sale price.
  9. Hi, I just saw that there is a sale on Designer/Photo on iPad. Currently I do have only an iPad Air1 which is not supported and also is on iOS9, so there is no way for me to buy it right now. Coming monday though, my brand new iPad Pro will arrive and those are the two apps I will want to buy immediately. Any chance that the sale lasts until then? Cheers

    Affinity Designer Customer Beta -

    So, ... IS there a video yet? Sounds interesting, but I can't really imagine how it would work.
  11. Interesting, I never knew about the section manager, have to check that out. In my case it makes sense to put the same header on every page, but in general you are right.
  12. I started creating a multipage manual with the latest beta, just to get to know the program better. So far, everything worked out fine and I found out everything I needed intuitively. Then I created a Table of Content for the document, listing all the H1 headlines. But what if one section spans over multiple pages, all having the same headline? Right now, the TOC lists every page in it's own line: Example: First Topic Page 2 Second Topic Page 3 Third Topic Page 4 Third Topic Page 5 Third Topic Page 6 Fourth Topic Page 7 Is it possible to change that, so it looks like this?: First Topic Page 2 Second Topic Page 3 Third Topic Page 4-6 Fourth Topic Page 7 or at least First Topic Page 2 Second Topic Page 3 Third Topic Page 4 Fourth Topic Page 7 And if so, how?
  13. That's a good workaround indeed. And totally doable in my case. But maybe it's a thing that could also be implemented as a feature. I guess it happens very often that sections span over multiple pages.
  14. Hi, my printshop specifically requires files to be sent as PDF/X-3:2002 (Version 1.3) with ISO Coated v2 300% (ECI) color profile. Publisher (and Designer too I think) offers only PDF/X-3:2003 and I am not sure if they will accept that. I can assign the correct color profile to it though. What is the difference between those two PDF-versions and can you add PDF/X-3:2002 as well?

    Need PDF/X-3:2002 (1.3) export

    @IndigoMoon Interesting, since this is practically the opposite of the answer I got from them. I wonder though, if the automated check when uploading a file is also ok with it. I can't have error messages pop up at my clients, even if it would work in the end. As soon as the final version of Publisher is available I might try it though. @mac_heibu I do have Acrobat 8 Pro, but I don't really use it other than sometimes checking files I get sent for dimensions, fonts and such. Also I'd rather not fiddle around with conversions and would much prefer the ability to directly export what I need. I respect Affinity's standpoint and of course the '2002 version is pretty much dated by now and has been replaced by better versions. But, as I explained above, it's sometimes out of my hand. In these cases I'd rather use my current software than Publisher.

    Need PDF/X-3:2002 (1.3) export

    @mac_heibu What you say might all be true. Sadly it's out of my hands sometimes. I am actually using Onlineprinters too, but it depends on the client. If I already made a couple of catalogues or flyers for them and everything worked out fine at Flyeralarm (as it usually does) it can be hard to make them switch only because I suddenly have a problem with file formats. I only deliver the printready files according to the respective specifications and they simply have to work wherever they choose to go for their printing. I am recommending Onlineprinters to all new clients already, but for the foreseeable future I still have to be able to "work" with Flyeralarm too. By the way, Flyeralarm does not give a ยง$%& about this. I asked them if they would accept other PDF versions too and the only response I got was along the lines of "please make sure to deliver your files as PDF/X-3:2002 only".

    It's Flyeralarm, they are huge in Germany and Austria, and are working all over Europe. I have no idea how big of a player they are in other countries, but they have a UK-site too: https://www.flyeralarm.com/uk/content/index/open/id/1569/artwork-requirements.html#PDFDateien

    Possible bug with lists

    I am not 100% sure if this is an actual bug, or if I am doing something wrong. I created this dummy document to play around. Latest version .128. I changed some of the text to an unordered list, but I can't get the text to line up properly. Even more so, I got the strangest effects whilst changing bullet type and tabstops in "Bullets & Numbering". Sometimes the 2nd line would "jump" to a really big intent from the left. Also tried changing values in the "Justification" tab. Any ideas?

    Need PDF/X-3:2002 (1.3) export

    Thank you for the explanation. I have written to the printers and asked if they would accept -2003 too, but have not heard back but for an automated response. We have to major printservices here and everybody more or less uses one or the other. Both have the same requirements, PDF/X-3:2002 So it would be very helpful, if not necessary, to include them into the export formats.

    Possible bug with lists

    Thanks Martigny, after "Show Text Ruler" I could easily adjust the spacing the way I wanted it. However - and this is meant for Serif - I think it's the wrong way around and not intuitive at all. If I leave anything at default and change lines to a list, it should "just work" out of the box. And only if I desire to have different spacing I should have to go through text ruler. Also I think it should definitely be possible to do this from the "Bullets and Numbering" tab as well. I AM working with a bullet list after all. This is the first thing that I encountered so far that I could not solve myself by just trying. I figured out a lot by going through the obvious options so far. This one was not obvious to me at all. While I am in no way a professional when it comes to the "Publisher" kind of software I am quite experienced in the Photo and Designer kind. Maybe you could give this a second thought.
  21. The current 16 tutorials helped me a lot to get started with Publisher. Are there more to come? And out of interest, where is the gentleman from and I mean his accent? English is not my first language but I find him very easy to understand and I like the way he talks very much.
  22. What exactly happened? I installed on Win7 too, but did not notice anything so far.
  23. I installed it today on Win7 without Admin rights and without problems. I don't believe it is an issue with rights. My configuration is much like the one of Mitsururgi.

    AD Win, open images floating, not docked?

    Great, thank you!
  25. Hi, whenever I open an image in AD (Windows, not Mac), it opens docked. In the "Window"-menu, there are options for Float (all) and Dock (all). In the "View" menu I can check or uncheck docking for tools, but not for images. Even when floating, the slightest movement or resizing of the window will make it "want to dock again". However, I would like them to always float and never dock at all. I went through all the settings and menus, but did not find anything. I realize that some people prefer them to be docked. I do not. And it is very tiresome to go through undocking every time and then take extra care so they don't dock again. How can I stop the images from docking for good, once and for all?
