  1. Is there anything I could optimise in this preferences to reduce the fast battery drain?
  2. I have a similar problem. Whenever I open an AP file I get the long list of pop-ups, then I need to go to Resource Manager, highlight all images, click on Update, wait 2-5 minutes, then I can work. I save, next time I open: the same problem. It's really annoying.
  3. I was on the airplane a few days ago (12 hours flight) and wanted to get some work done with Affinity Publisher. I have a MacBook Pro 2018 13 inch with battery cycle count 166 condition normal. Battery went from 100 % full to empty in less than 2 hours, with Wifi turned off and screen brightness at 4 dots (maybe 20 %). All other apps closed (apart from Apple Pages and Finder). I was quite disappointed since I could not get much work done. I tried that again at home and battery drained equally fast. You can almost watch the battery indicator count down. Simple text editing in AP, nothing fancy. Is this an issue? How is it even possible to drain the battery that fast? I think not even FCPX can drain the battery that fast. Will this be addressed in a future update? Are there some preferences I could change to slow down the fast drain?
  4. I did a restart of my MacBook Pro and now it's much better. Wouldn't say it's speedy like Adobe InDesign, but definitely a lot better than before the restart. I think I should have done a restart of my MacBook after the upgrade from AP 1.7 to 1.7.3
  5. I'm currently lay-outing a book on AP 1.7.3, MacBook Pro 13 " 2018, 16 GB RAM, 6x9 inch page size, simple text layout, nothing fancy, and about 50 images, images linked. Now at page 65. Right from the start there was a delay between keypress and letters being typed on the screen. Now with every page AP becomes slower, slower to safe, slower to show up after switching to other apps, in general everything is slower than just 20 pages ago. How many pages can I still add before having to start a new document? Or should I break the book up after 40 pages? My book will have about 80 pages in total, will AP be able to handle all 80 pages? Thanks
  6. Can someone tell me how too prevent this behaviour? When I resize the picture frame then the image inside violently jumps to it's original size. When I press command+Z (undo) the picture disappears. Not recoverable. I need to delete the picture frame, link the image again. What's going on? Untitled.mov
  7. Same challenge here... can't find the supposedly overflow text... 49 pages here... ok this is not a helpful comment for support I realise that... hm.. there's a little rectangle on one page in the right upper corner, I can't highlight or delete it... maybe that's what's causing the trouble?
  8. ok this did the trick! thanks ! btw, there might be a chance that I did it wrong the whole time, my fault, not AP... anyways, now it works!
  9. Argh, I tried to reproduce it on a new document and it does work. But it doesn't in the big file I'm working on. Tragic. I don't want to reset...
  10. Lucky you, for me on the Mac when I chose "Replace.." in the Resource Manager it replaces all instances, not just the highlighted one. Also dropping pictures into picture frames doesn't seem to work.. (AP 1.7.3, MacOs 10.14.6)
  11. When I copy a picture frame with linked images I can see the entry in the Resource manager gets another line. The frames now work like clones, impossible to link a new picture to the new frame, because it will always re-link the picture in all frames. Is there a way to copy a frame without this behaviour? Or do I have to create an entirely new one from scratch for each picture?
  12. I can't seem to get Find and Replace to only look in my highlighted selection. Instead it seems to run from the beginning of the document. Also, I can't find a way to select "in current selection" (like MS Word has a checkbox right next to the find edit field). I see that there's many things to select from (Paragraph styles etc), but what am I missing?
  13. I made the "mistake" to buy Affinity Publisher directly from Affinity, and Affinity Designer via the App Store. Now this is a mess, since a. Affinity Publisher does not know anything about Affinity Designer (see screenshot, both apps are open but don't know each other) and b. in the App Store I can only update Affinity Designer. Two questions: 1. How can I clean up this confusing situation? 2. Also, I'm thinking about purchasing Affinity Photo, where should I buy it?
  14. I couldn't figure it out at first, but then I drew a fresh line and suddenly it worked. Don't know how to delete this post, sry. no_curve.mov
  15. Always crashes on that move, can't open layer properties (see video). 1. In Finder right click on png to open it in Designer. Designer opens with png as background. 3. Make background a layer by double clicking it 4. Add new layer 5. Right click on new layer to go to "Properties..." 6. Crash (every time) Affinity Designer 1.6.1 High Sierra 10.13.6 ad_crash.mov
