  1. Hi, This is the false part! I have placed many rectangles with different colours inside an Affinity Designer and an Affinity Photo document. Then, I have copied all the rectangles and pasted these ones into an Affinity Publisher page. Inside Affinity Publisher, I selected all the rectangles, I right-clicked to get the contextual menu where I can generally chose the option to define a pallete from the selection, but it does not work. I created a custom colour palette inside Affinity Photo, I exported it and I was not able to import it inside Affinity Publisher, just the name of the custom palette was imported, but not any colours were imported underneath. I created a document with a custom Pantone spot colours palette inside Affinity Photo and too inside Affinity Designer. These Pantone colours were applied to some objects inside Photo and Designer. I saved each document as a native Affinity Photo and a native Affinity Designer, and when I imported these documents inside Affinity Publisher, the document colour swatches was not showing the Pantone colours used inside Photo and Designer. Affinity Photo was able to generate a colours swatches palette from a selection on the page, same thing with Affinity Designer, but it is not working with Affinity Publisher. This is the solution. OMG! Shame on me! LOL Finally, I created a custom palette into Affinity Photo including some colour swatches under this custom palette. I exported this palette as a .afpalette, I tried to import it into Affinity Publisher, it has imported but without the colour swatches… — To make it working, we must leave the search field blank inside the colour swatches palette !!! Please, never forget to leave this search field blank before trying to import any palette created inside another Affinity application. Let's say you have left Pantone 2768 C into the search field while trying to import a .afpalette, leaving the Pantone 2768 C in place will block the imported colours to be shown. — So, technically, it is very possible to create a documents with a custom palette using Pantone colours, then export this custom palette as a .afpalette and finally import it where you need within the Affinity applications. Gee! I have been working too much today! LOL

    No more personnalized cropping presets

    Please, disregard my post I found it into the Wheel. I fist created my own category than I save my preset into it using the contextual menu withing the wheel.
  3. Hello, I have Affinity Photo 1.7 and I can't figure it out how to save my own cropping presets. It was easy done in the previous version, but this option seems to have vanished.
  4. I am using sRGB in both cases, it does not explain why the problem is solved when I restard Affinity Photo.
  5. I would like to share an experience here and I would like to know if anybody went through that too. I noticed that if Affinity Photo was left opened and idle during the night, the next day when I start working on a Capture One file and I export it into Affinity Photo, the colors from one program to the other are not the same anymore, I mean the color into Affinity are duller losing the saturation. The only way I found to solve it until now is to close Affinity Photo and reopen it, then I export again from Capture One to Affinity Photo and the color rendition is perfectly between the two applications. I am using a iMac 27'' 2015 with the latest OS. I am using the lastest Capture One version 12.0.3 and Affinity Photo 1.6.7 I am using retina rendering into the preferences.
  6. Normally, the typographic rules are no more than 3 words breaks. These breaks really help not to have to wide white spaces between the words.
  7. I would like Affinity to add the option to be able to scale the glyphs into the Justification palette. This option can be pretty useful when someone is using some justified texts, flush on both side, because it will help to get better white spaces between the words in some difficult situation, as an example with narrow colomns of text. I am sharing with you here some specs I was using with success into some publications, see the joined picture where I placed (in blue) within Affinity Publisher's Justification palette the option I would like to be added. You can see a sample too of a document I created with these specs many years ago. In this sample page the width of the column if not too narrow, but more problems may occurs with the white spaces between the words where someone is using narrow columns where the text is justified, this latter is where the option of scaling the glyphs may come really handy.
  8. I noticed that when you want to create a new document into Affinity Publisher that there is no option to create a bloc zone. This option is important to me, because when I am doing a three-folds folder or more, I want to place my folder's marks inside the bloc zone. As an example, I use to put a bleed of 3.125 mm, plus a bloc zone of 12,7 mm over it. As an example, I saw some design where the folder marks were not perpendicular to get irregular and angled folds, in such a case, it is important to be able to have a bloc zone where to place these folders marks. That said, if Affinity Publisher will eventually integrate an option for the bloc zone, then we should have to an option to include too this bloc zone within the dialogue boxes at the PDF creation time.
