  1. Cross-references is the feature I have been waiting for. Will it be possible to set up cross-reference formats, so that you can have a cross reference that also generates prefix, infix and postfix text? In other words, can you create a cross reference that looks like this: See Section 3.2 Task-Switching Penalties on page 47. ...or, are the references limited to just page numbers? Will it be possible to automatically format cross-references differently depending on output format? For example: PDF for print: See Section 3.2 Task-Switching Penalties on page 47. eBook/HTML: See 3.2 Task-Switching Penalties.
  2. I'll see if I can replicate it the next time I work on a picture. If I can, I'll send you a file sample and export settings. I do not believe it is the export settings though, because it was possible to see the overly large pixels of the linked layer when I had the file open in Affinity Photo.
  3. Linked layers have significantly reduced quality when exported. See the picture: To the left, the model is on a linked layer. To the right, the model has been embedded in the main file. I can sometimes force an update by opening the linked file at the same time as I have the main file open, but that only increases the quality a bit. I do not get the full image quality. I am running Photo v2.0.0 on Windows 11. I use Google Drive, but all files are stored locally on the hard drive.
  4. I have the same problem with DXO Photolab. I know Serif moved the files to the Windows 11 starting location. That location isn't available even as an administrator. Changing access rights so DXO can start Affinity does not work. This really needs to be fixed.
  5. I think they have changed the name in the drop-down menu, but it is still in the documentation. What they are describing here is not a cross-reference.
  6. Yes, Affinity Publisher is definitely lacking in book publishing features. The lack of footnotes, endnotes, and cross-references, are the worst omissions, but the more I work with the software, the more problems I find. Still, I do not know of any reasonably priced alternative. I do not want to rent Adobe products, and that makes Affinity Publisher the only game in town. On the other hand, with a bit of luck, Serif is working on fixing the current shortcomings. I hope they do it before I finish my book. 🙂
  7. You are probably correct. What has me a bit worried is that they implemented hyperlink functionality suitable for eBooks, but not any sort of eBook export, and then named their hyperlinks "cross-references". Serif usually plan the functionality in their applications very well, but this time I am not so sure they are doing that.
  8. Back in the day when I was a software developer, I designed and built a cross-reference system for XMetaL. It's not that difficult. Serif does not have to work out everything from scratch. They can borrow ideas from systems that work, like the FrameMaker cross-references, LaTex, Basser Lout, DocBook, XLink, or even Word.
  9. I'm working on a book on photography, and the lack of cross-references is becoming a larger and larger problem the further I get. I'm hoping we'll get it in the next release. Preferably something at least as powerful and flexible as you get with FrameMaker.
  10. I am working on a book on photography. The lack of footnotes and endnotes in Affinity Publisher is getting to be a severe obstacle. I keep hoping for that being added in the next version.
  11. I have the same problem. Might have a solution. I took the advice earlier in this thread, and started Affinity Photo as an administrator. You can do that by right-clicking on the Affinity Photo icon and selecting "Run as Administrator" in the pop-up menu. That enabled me to start the login process. Unfortunately, the Affinity store was down for maintenance, so I'll have to try again in a couple of hours.
  12. Thanks! Updating the driver helped a bit. The remaining problems I handle by updating pictures from the Resource dialog.
  13. BTW, the reason I have hardware acceleration turned off, is that it used to cause crashes. I tried turning it on, and restarted AF, but it did not help. This is what a linked layer looks like, as I write this. Right now, I've been waiting about 5 minutes for the linked picture to update.
  14. Hi @Dan C, Here are my preferences settings. The resources are stored on an internal SSD. Kind Regards, Henrik
  15. Linked pictures in Affinity Photo are extremely slow to update. In the screenshot, the hand is part of a linked image. When I zoomed in, I saw only a low resolution version of the linked image. Image layers that were embedded updated normally. It took several minutes for the embedded image to update. I have noticed the same phenomenon with Affinity Publisher, so the bug is not unique to Affinity Photo.
