  1. I just found avast's ransomeware shield was protecting the certain folder the photo was in and was blocking any app trying to open it. 🤦‍♂️💁‍♂️
  2. I run Affinity Photo on windows 10. I have avast as antivirus. They coexisted over a year. Starting today, avast is blocking affinity from opening any photo in it, by saying its ransomeware shield blocked it. This is creepy. I updated the latest available version from Microsoft store. But nothing changed. However it can launch just fine. Just can't open any photos in it.
  3. Please disable or fix the windows Ink problem. Please. 1.7 was best.
  4. My raster brushes are lagging a lot in Affinity Designer. I tried with both Windows 10 on and off. I'm using placard by Frankentoon. What might be the problem? My specs are: Windows 10, Intel G4560, 16Gb RAM. Running on a SSD and no GPU.
  5. Yes disabling it kind of solved my problem. And my brush inputs are also recognizing pressure still with it disabled. I don't notice anything yet, but what difference is happening now that is windows ink is off?
  6. I am having an annoying issue on Windows 10. I use Wacom intuos M. I did not have this problem before Affinity 1.8.x So, when Windows Ink is disabled in Wacom Properties, no brush in pixel persona has pressure. They work like charm once I enable Windows Ink. Now in Designer persona, Windows Ink doesn't let me draw sharp nodes while using pen tool. They are all smooth node and I have to click Alt to convert each of them to sharp node while drawing. (Before 1.8.x, I only had to click/tap on a smooth node to turn it to a sharp node). The issue solves when Windows Ink is disabled. But then the brushes won't work. I need both my brushes to work normally and also draw sharp nodes. Any solution?
  7. How do I know which page is about what in the pages panel? Creating sections does not visualize them on the panel. If I have a long list of pages, how do I know which one is which in thumbnails unless I scroll all the way down?
  8. Using a wacom intuos and the pen's middle click (pan view) does not work anymore after switching from pixel persona. Needs to restart designer .
  9. In pixel persona, the brushes are lagging and the color picker can't pick correct colour in HSL mode. In vector persona, the text fonts sometimes are getting deformed or stretched or squeezed horizontally. Windows 10 1809
  10. I'm working in affinity for last 6 months now and I despise Illustrator. I can't stop talking about how anti-intuitive is Illustrator. But they have an undoubtedly nice feature called package. It saves the raw file, the fonts involved and other things plus a report in a folder. Can we do the same in Affinity somehow? That report document is very important when we work for clients or with other designers to know what kind of colour space and font and etc etc was used on the specific project.
  11. I'm using Affinity Designer on Windows. And I can't find how do a export without the background. If I check "transparent background" in document setup, then it gives a check-board backdrop where I don't want to create my artwork. I need a plain coloured (preferably grey) background where I can create and then export only the the selected parts, not the background. How do I do it? I'm only 3 days old in Affinity suite.
  12. And say if I reinstall Windows, I will still have my license working right? I don't need to buy it again?
  13. Beta of what? I thought Affinity Designer is stable. And no I can't sadly test it beforehand you see because I'm planning to buy Windows 10 retail along with Affinity and other hardware upgrades in Christmas.
  14. This screenshot seems like I have seen this tutorial or process video or speed-art whatever it was, somewhere. But I can't find it anymore. Google image searchbacks are only giving links of shady sites. Can someone recognize this and find me the original tutorial link? That will be very helpful. Thanks in advance.
  15. I'm new on Windows. I mostly ran Linux in past. My question is how do I acquire Affinity? Windows is kind of confusing too. I understand there are two ways: Buy from Serif's site. In that case, will it be a digital download? Then how will I receive the activation key or license? And if I change or reinstall Windows, will my key still work or I have to buy another license? Buy from Microsoft store. In that case, will I have a license? Or Microsoft will remember it for me? Will Microsoft store restores the affinity apps back free of cost if I reinstall Windows or I have to buy again?
