  1. Do these forums have a listing of functional PS plugins for AP anywhere? There used to be one but I cant find it. This is still AP's achilles heel and it would save a lot of trial and frustrating error if I could find an up to date listing. Thanks for any help.
  2. Thanks. That's very clear now. I am basically a Photo user. Publisher is useful to me presently for just one single long term project. My interest in the Publisher Beta was just that - interest ......... and simple curiosity. So I can quite happily carry on with 1.7.3 for my project and update when the time comes. Thanks for your help and clarification.
  3. Stupid me, I forgot to give machine specs. I had guessed that it was probably a case of waiting for compatible versions. I just hoped that I might be wrong ...... Thanks Haakoo for your very swift replies.
  4. Now you have really got me puzzled. I attach an extract from the mail that came this morning with the Publisher beta 8 installer.
  5. I have just installed Publisher Beta V When I try to use the Designer and Photo personas the link does not work and I get the attached message. Designer and Photo are V 1.7.3 from the app store. I have tried uninstalling and re-installing post Publisher install but that doesn't help. Both apps link perfectly with the V 1.7.3 release version of Publisher so I can work with that fine for now. I remember in the past that linking between beta and release versions didn't always work. So is this something I should expect until a new release version of Publisher is available or do I have a problem? Thanks for any help.
  6. That would be great! So much of what we do in these kind of apps is instinct based on 'knowing where the buttons are'.
  7. Patrick your post just crossed with mine. I just discovered this for myself. Sorry to have bothered you. While I have you 'on the line' so to speak. It really would be much easier of Studio recognised our personal screen layouts for Photo and Designer. They must be accessible to Studio.
  8. My bad .......... Apologies to all ............... Hadn't realised that Publisher had a new release version. Just installed it and all working perfectly. It's great. Although I would be much happier if Studio used my screen layouts for Photo and Designer. Now I have to learn publisher. I can see some happy hours ahead ............
  9. I am using Publisher Beta 1.7.2 458 App Store Photo 1.7.2 App Store Designer 1.7.2 OS X 10.14.6 All have been opened and run. They are not apparently registering with Studio Link I get the message asking me to install and run them. Where do I go from here? David Mac
  10. And my apologies in turn for taking it out on you .............. wrong of me.
  11. Thanks for the suggestions. They finally appeared yesterday. See post above.
  12. I have two machines. A desktop that I use all the time where there were no updates at all and a laptop that I use only from time to time. It occurred to me to check the laptop ......... and there they were. Once updated from the laptop they finally appeared on the desktop after several log in and outs from the store. Thanks Patrick for responding. Running perfectly now.
  13. And, yes, your point about the app store is well taken.
  14. The beta versions no longer work. Beta files are not backwardly compatible with my earlier installed store vesrsions. Nothing critical was created on the betas but it's frustrating nonetheless.
  15. Below is the text of a post from the forum announcing the release in the App Store of the final beta. Although it is the where the download instructions are given it is, apparently and puzzlingly, not the appropriate forum to announce difficulties downloading it. Despite having taken an active part in the beta assessments and having downloaded and used them all I am completely unable to download the release version from the App Store. I have had the original AppStore version of Affinity Photo and Designer since their release and they are present on my machine and show as installed in the App Store. However App Store only shows only my original pre beta apps. Nothing shows in updates to update them and Cmd R does nothing to update 'updates'. Not only can I not download the new release I cannot even use what I have happily been using to date because it won't let me in and I get a message telling me to download the new version. I am now totally without access to your app or my files. I am not the only one confused that is clear from other posts .......... can someone please hold my hand and take me though this step by step? iMac Retina 5K. 6 x 3,7 Ghz. OS Mojave 10.14.5
  16. With the greatest of respect Patrick there is confusion everywhere. I am not the only one with problems. This thread is full of questions like mine. A thread announcing a new release seems an entirely appropriate place to ask for help downloading it. It's already full of questions about downloading. Brushing me off to another forum is to say the least discourteous. I have followed and commented and given input on this beta for months and I have supported Affinity since it's inception. Quite frankly I am angered by your lack of assistance .... however, given no alternative, I shall, do what you say ......... but, to be honest and frank, you have left a bad taste. After so much that has been so good what a terrible shame.
  17. App Store shows only my original pre beta app. Nothing shows in updates and Cmd R does nothing to update 'updates'. I can't use what I have because it won't let me in and I get a message telling me download the new version. I am not the only one confused that is clear from other posts .......... can someone please hold my hand and take me though this step by step? Same applies to Designer of course.
  18. Thanks Leigh. That's clear(ish). I'd sort of guessed the Pressure which is why I was asking about Efficiency. Efficiency sounds like one of those figures of more significance to developers than users. Probably useful if I ever have to come here trying to troubleshoot a memory problem.
  19. I am having difficulty understanding what Memory Efficiency in the Info Panel represents. On modest documents this can read as high as 5616%. How can anything be more than 100% efficient? On huge mega documents that make AP really struggle this has plunged to as low as -2147483648% which seems a completely ludicrous and meaningless figure. So please what exactly does Memory Efficiency represent?
  20. So no shortcuts - just basic keyboard navigation. If I have to click the dropdown first then it's quicker just to carry on using the pen. Thanks Aammppaa
  21. After all these years I am really embarrassed asking this - but are there any keyboard shortcuts for scrolling through layer blend modes or shortcuts for choosing specific modes? I haven't managed to find any. But I can't believe that they aren't there somewhere ............
  22. I am delighted to hear it. On the face of it, it looked to be an excellent app. Every app is going to go wrong on some user at some point in time. In my case it deleted a bunch of files without moving them first to the trash so they became instantly irrecoverable. Hopefully just an isolated incident but it left me unwilling to try it further. It is good to hear positive feedback from a satisfied user.
  23. If you are happy with what Bridge is doing you can download Bridge Classic (the non web based version) for free. You don't need an Adobe subscription. I am using it this way. But be warned ..... Bridge cannot read Affinity Photo files either. It simply shows the Affinity icon. Otherwise you need to follow MEB's suggestion. I didn't know that XnViewMP could read Affinity thumbnails because I won't use it as it destroyed a bunch of my files. Fortunately I had them backed up but it didn't give me much faith in the app.
