  1. out of curiosity, I downloaded one of these free templates. I tried to open it in my old Photoshop CS5, which worked fine(-ish) as this version barely works today in Mojave... What surprised me, was that upon first opening in APhoto it displayed OK and when saved as .afphoto and re-opened the perspective is off. You can also see that in AfPhoto the smart-layers have an additional perspective applied, which they do not need and have in Photoshop. (see screenshots)
  2. was hesitant all the time, to enable or disable this preference, as I am alternating between print- (CMYK) and screen-layouts. It is always converting the colours to RGB although I mostly use RGB hex for web and CMYK for print. It's a very useful feature, though. would be cool to selectively copy per right-click as the OP suggested.
  3. Sorry to say, but I think you will have to describe a little in words what you are trying to do vs. expecting to happen. (yes I watched the video) If its the fact that the NAME of the colour swatch does not update to reflect changes in the colour NUMBERS - well this should be intentional as you can rename it to whatever you like and one must be able to have 2 swatches of the same colour. It's a bummer thou, that Affinity apps do not have a feature to automatically rename a swatch based on numbers, like the checkbox in InDesign (whose implementation also can be frustrating if you coincidently try to create an already existing colour and it aborts)
  4. I can confirm, Photo 1.9.1 immediately quits after showing the splash screen. (the new Publisher beta works, thou)
  5. in your dropbox... I sent you a second, different file which also crashes afpub19b911
  6. It crashes every time I open a pre-beta document (via: right-click > open with > publisher beta) sometimes it displays the "this is a non beta document, are you sure?" dialog, but then crashes. edit: it also crashes when using the regular menu command "open"
  7. One thing I noticed looking at the window menu: if you combine two document windows into one (as tabs) you have no way to switch between them (either via menu or by defining a new shortcut) other than with the mouse ...in contrast to the macOS Finder windows/tabs:
  8. My use-case would require that I also have unused but registered colours in my document palette. If I understand correctly, you would aim for a clean solution with only actually used ones in there? Sorry if I'm misunderstanding.
  9. @Nazario I'm also not very happy with the current colour system in the affinity apps. Working with what we got here, I would say: By "palette" you would use affinity's "document palette" the Swatch books would be all the other palettes in this dropdown >>> (your and my) problem is – one can never see them side-by-side for a simple drag-n-drop action. (of course there would be some other things left to repair...)
  10. Help! @Patrick Connor After updating the release version to 1.8.6 (Mac AppStore) this beta wont start anymore! because: <Validate Product Key Popup> Do we have to wait for new beta versions of all three apps?
  11. @anon2 Thank You so much! Strange tho, that it does not work, if you have selected a word to be replaced by the double-clicked field. In this stage as a beta feature, this is very counter-intuitive.
  12. Sorry, I'm not sure if this has ever worked like I think it should – obviously some people have already managed to successfully do a data merge, so... I have a .csv file with headers called <name> <phone> ... a document with prepared text "<name>, <phone>" opened the data merge manager opened the fields panel set up all so that the datasets are correctly displayed in the fields panel If I press "generate" I get a new document with as many pages as my datasets but the text is still <name> <phone> I "accidentally" recognised the small grey text "double click field name to insert" but double clicking doesn't do anything... also no right click-menu or anything suggesting how I could mark my prepared text as "fields" How do you do it??
  13. that's how it should work. But as I mentioned, the colour palette panel still needs a lot of love from the affinity team - most times the swatch selection does not sync with the object selection...
