  1. Indeed. Otherwise the logical response to every question here is "read the documentation", in which case nobody needs to take part.
  2. Congratulations. When you had the opportunity to try V2 for free you would have found out there was nothing that you wanted.
  3. It seems to render the whole document, not just the first page. See this post here about (my) request to speed up the export preview because as it stands it is just as quick to export the file:
  4. Except we did get new somethings. Books, footnotes/sidenotes/endnotes in APub, the knife tool and shape builder in AD, etc. On this I agree. Any error message should be absolutely clear what the error is.
  5. A question for you. On macOS, why are shared libraries marked as executable? On FreeBSD, all the base libraries are mode 0444. Many ports will install shared libraries with mode 0755 because that's the way they come out of cc by default. But they don't need to be (AFAIK). Things in libexec are actually programs rather than shared libraries so they are executable. Later versions of Solaris (from 11 and maybe from the last of the 10s) mostly has 0444 for system libraries. Some things are marked executable. Older versions had heaps of stuff marked as executable, but of course you couldn't actually do anything with it except (in nearly all cases) get a segmentation fault. FreeBSD: [aaa@dog:20:39:10:/lib] (559) # ls -l libc.so.7 -r--r--r-- 1 root wheel 1955744 Jun 1 2022 libc.so.7 Solaris 11: [aaa@chunky:20:40:56:/lib] (97) % ls -l libc.so.1 -r-xr-xr-x 1 root root 2605680 Mar 11 2022 libc.so.1 I don't know about macOS. Hence for general knowledge I am asking.
  6. Some PNG files in the same directory are also marked executable, also quite a few PNGs in the Help directory. I noticed this previously. [aaa@bbb:16:50:42:/Applications] (526) % find Affinity\ Photo.app -type f -perm 0755 -ls
  7. Then it's probably about time to start using another font. Choose a non-Apple font (once bitten, twice shy), either one that you have purchased or has a free licence to use in perpetuity. It's a pain.
  8. Whoever is 'at fault' this is dreadful. It is comparable to 'remove Pantone swatches from Adobe even though you have been using them for years' thing. Fancy a test? I have made a one page APub document with Athelas. What happens if you open it (after copying Athelas.ttc to your fonts directory)? Athelas-test.afpub
  9. Try this: cp /System/Library/Fonts/Supplemental/Athelas.ttc ~/Library/Fonts/.
  10. You don't have to wait for this to complete. You can just click the Export button. The slowness of the 'generating preview' function has been mentioned several times in this forum.
  11. Can you upload one of the offending PDFs here? As mentioned, I have no problems placing and editing most PDFs.
  12. There was a link for the macOS versions. But here are:
  13. Is this with any PDF or one PDF in particular? If it's one PDF, can you post it here? For info, I can drag and drop PDFs and edit many of them (not quite all) without problems.
  14. Suggestion: change the error message to 'Affinity removed 2 broken or corrupt objects from your document'. I think we have mostly assume that a link is either a linked file or a hyperlink.
