  1. Thank you everyone for the interesting dialog about this. Sometimes as a developer we tend to think of things as to what is most logical however working with design projects has taught me to think outside of the box in various ways. I never would have imagined, for instance, how something as subtle as not being able to pick your parameters first to avoid visual movements in your selection would feel tedious after awhile. It’s all very interesting and I’m happy with whatever choices are made because I’m quite happy with the Affinity platform and applications. I’d be interested as well to hear of any other opinions about what they think of these small changes. Thank you all and to the devs for making such a great application suite.
  2. Of course, you're right about the number of clicks, for me it was annoying to visually watch something line up to the last selected "Align to" option instead of letting me set up the parameters first (like it was in earlier versions) and then press the Align method. If we're just counting clicks then that's fine and as BoFG has quoted above it seems to be the intended behavior now. Just a little jarring visually for me on bigger projects but if this the intention then this is the intention. Thanks for writing!
  3. Hi I too have been having this issue across all Affinity applications on the Mac. Affinity Photo, Designer and Publisher. It's starting to get really annoying on bigger projects. Please let us know where the dev team is on this issue. Thank you!
  4. Just FYI, if anyone else runs into this issue I went to the MAS and although no updates showed up, I manually went to both the Designer and Photo application and found updates on both of them, only when clicking on their respective applications. Weird but it works now. In the future, I won't update Affinity Publisher until the other two have updates available from the MAS.
  5. Hi everyone, I'm hoping for some workarounds here if anyone has the same problem. I'm running Affinity Designer and Affinity Photo (both purchased from the Mac App Store) versions 1.7.2 for each. Affinity Publisher was purchased through the Affinity web site and StudioLink had been working fine. However after updating Publisher this morning the StudioLink option no longer works and there are no other MAS updates for the Designer and Photo apps. I've read the thread on this page: but it hasn't found a solution for me at least. Any ideas?
  6. Cannot agree more... "More print production tools" please!
  7. I, like many, can appreciate the amount of work that has already gone into creating Affinity Publisher Beta and I'm sure they will continue their work on the .indd import. In the meantime after running a few tests (both simple and complicated) I too have my workaround when need arises as @David Simpson has already stated in order to open an already finished InDesign document for further simple editing when necessary. Simply exporting the .indd into a PDF format imports quite surprisingly tidy into AP with editing possibilities that are fine for my needs. As well, exporting from InDesign into an .eps file imports nicely although the text comes in as shapes so is not editable. Between both ways, this works for simple edits on an already finished .indd document. I wouldn't be switching to AP in the middle of a ID project anyways, so the finished .indd versions -> PDF is fine until AP gets the update for importing and hopefully exporting to .indd or at least .idml formats. I understand a lot of the criticism at this point, yet still think Affinity deserves a good round of applause for taking on such a giant and I'm confident they will listen to their community (which personally I feel Adobe does not) and will produce their updates. I already like AP and am well excited to see where it goes.
