  1. Thanks for the explanation! This part is unclear to me: 1. You mean that those files should be cleared out automatically? Why is this not done upon Quit? If information in those files has been committed upon Save, why not delete the files at that stage? What's the point of waiting until the program is re-opened? 2. Is it safe to empty the folder manually? Or is it not safe to do so? Thanks again.
  2. I think the same thing happens with the other Affinity programs – but thanks – I've corrected the original post.
  3. After using Affinity Publisher and quitting the program, I find a number of "temp" files left behind in the following location: ~/Library/Application Support/Affinity Publisher/temp/ These files vary in size and have names like "5f3c2a2d" (etc.). 1. What are these files and can they be deleted without loss of function? 2. If they can be deleted, why does the program not delete them itself upon Quit? Thanks for any clues.
  4. 1. Where by "move" do you mean "duplicate"? 2. And, per your instruction, if I leave the old "Affinity Publisher Beta" folder where it was, will it work seamlessly with future Betas? 3. To obviate the need for the above procedure, can't there be just the one "Affinity Publisher" folder that works with both Beta and Shipping versions? Now, while carrying out the above procedure I noticed that in the "Application Support" folder I have what appear to be two copies of the "Affinity Photo" folder. One has settings files in it, including a licence file, but the other only has the (seemingly identical) licence file. So: 4. How did this happen? 5. Can I safely delete the folder that contains only the licence file? Thanks much for any clues.
  5. Does it have to reside within the Applications folder? I've never noticed any trouble with it located somewhere else.
  6. I asked about that some months ago and was assured it would not happen. [Sigh]
  7. Yes, I prefer the preview-as-icon thing but I also agree that the current non-preview icons are not ideal. And then there's QuickLook, which Affinity could also do better with. Here's Apple's spiel: Quick Look offers a fast, full-size preview of nearly any kind of file without opening the file. Just press the Space bar to rotate photos, trim audio and video clips, and use Markup to crop photos and annotate images or PDFs. You can use Quick Look for items in Finder windows, on your desktop, in emails and messages, and other places. Just to illustrate one possible improvement: In the Finder, if you invoke QuickLook on a PDF document or a Pages document, you can scroll through from beginning to end; whereas with an Affinity document, it seems only the first page shows in QuickLook.
  8. On the machines I use, all Macs running Finder, each of my Publisher documents is displayed using an icon that is a preview of the first page. I find this helpful. I can also confirm that, in the Finder's List view, my Publisher documents show up simply as "Document"; whereas my Photo and Designer documents show up as "Affinity Photo document" and "Affinity Designer document," respectively.
  9. I've never been able to "find" Publisher documents via a content search with Spotlight. Am I doing something wrong? Is the feature just about to be implemented? Or is it impossible? (I mention Publisher but if it would not be a bad thing if the feature were available in Designer and even with certain data in Photo documents.)
  10. Watch me file this as a bug report! (Thanks also for pointing me towards the old discussion.)
  11. Is this possible? (I looked for relevant topics but could not find any.)
  12. The above works when creating a document, but once the document is created: I must be missing something obvious …
  13. There is a group of tutorials published by Serif here: https://affinity.serif.com/en-us/tutorials/publisher/desktop/video/286534891 This group is accessible through a menu item in the program: Help > Tutorial… And then there are additional tutorials scattered elsewhere, such as here: https://affinityspotlight.com/article/affinity-publisher-public-beta-vs-170227-now-available-on-auto-update/?utm_source=SpotlightEmail&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Newsletter This last one focuses on new master-page functionality, but if users rely on the menu item in the program when looking for tutorials, they will not find it. They will be led to the aforementioned group of tutorials, some of which may be out of date. So … is there an organized list of all available tutorials? (I also question the wording of the menu item text, but that's a minor thing.)
  14. Thanks. I had sort of assumed that newer betas are designed to be able to open older files without any "translation errors." I had also assumed that even if this functionality was intended, it might not always work! So yes, I have been keeping the documents "up to date" (so to speak). Thanks again.
