  1. You can enable/disable the Assistant, or change what it does, via the Affichage > Assistant... menu item. Hope that helps in the first instance Anstellos, we still need to investigate why the DNG did not process correctly.

  2. Hi Al, the trial is secure on purpose so that it can not be used repeatedly, sorry. 


    The dev team 'reset' the trial on April 2nd so that people who had previously installed an older trial version of Affinity Designer could download a fresh release and evaluate the new features we added to v1.2. If your expired trial was used after April 2nd there is no way to reset it.


    However, it is on offer right now so that's another option. If you have specific questions maybe the team or other forum members could help you decide if the app is what you want?

  3. Yes sorry for that, MEB is right, you need to use an isometric grid. In the beta version of Affinity Designer you will find a Grid and Axis Manager in the View menu. You can set up a nice 3-axis grid that will make this kind of illustration far easier to achieve compared to using the current Mac App Store release of the app.


    Uncheck Use automatic grid to set up a grid with your own choice of spacing, choosing a preset like Isometric from the drop-down list to make it easy if you wish.



  4. Yes you can achieve this with Affinity Designer; it will be easier if you use the recent Customer Beta version as it includes some grid and snapping improvements specifically for this kind of illustration.


    https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/forum/15-affinity-designer-beta (go to the top post of the top thread in the linked forum).


    The Affinity Designer Customer Beta requires that you have the Mac App Store version also installed, and it will work alongside it indefinitely (although we recommend you update it when prompted). If you do not have the Mac App Store version of Affinity Designer installed, the Customer Beta release can only work as a 10 day trial.


    Cheers, Dale.

  5. I love that your client has meant you can stay within Affinity Designer for the whole project including hand off. Nice colourful work Kevin.


    It's a good day, you're a driver of a new workflow. You've gone a fair way to showcase how useful AD is, the results are done to a tee, they never look rough, and I'm sure it's down in part to the way you slice them too.

  6. it is fine for me as long as I get a written permission or have a disclaimer about it


    That's not what Kate said, jxl.


    - If you write a book about Serif/Affinity you do not need permission but should probably post a disclaimer stating we were not involved.


    - Serif owns the copyright for all Affinity software, and all Affinity and Serif logos/branding. Any use of these would require obtaining a written permission from us and we would need to approve an outline of your project.



  7. Ignore last topic created on floating lighting window - just found out I wasn't clicking on the header bar - it all moves just fine

    Apologies for earlier post


    No need to apologise :) I've deleted the old topic, thanks ravingdave.

  8. Hoping it's OK for me to say this.... it'll disappear if not!


    We're in a great position with devs that have far more autonomy than most. It's their call with the head of dev what to add/pull/prioritise, when to submit to Apple etc—and of course they would rather have everything in the app too but then it'd would never get released at all (because perfection is unachievable!) :)  It means they have tough decisions and cannot please everyone, but it also means they are working harder than the average dev to produce something very special. Just so you know, it's rather refreshingly not a financial or sales director making the calls in team Affinity.

  9. Hi Andy and everyone - sharing a video here from someone called Chiara who kindly reported this via Facebook.


    I've made sure I've got the same build and tested the same Liquify tools; mine behave as you would expect, where the tools in this vid are doing something different, e.g. shifting up instead of forwards, twirling instead of pinching.


    Thanks, Dale.
