  1. Thank you. Yes, I am really in Seattle, and not travelling. Tried on iPad - two different up-to-date browsers, including Safari - Javascript enabled and on Mac using the most up-to-date version of Safari - Javascript is enabled. I have no add-ons or doo-bobs. Straight Safari. Seems that many other people are encountering payment difficulties. I fantasized that so many people were grabbing this excellent deal that Affinity servers were choking on the traffic. Since I meet the requirements you just listed, perhaps something needs to be done on the Serif end of things. I never have issues paying for things online. I hope Serif are looking into why so many issues with payment. Cheers
  2. Got the V2 Suite in the cart.. Can someone please explain how I do the 3-D secure auth bit? Existing user, successfully logged into my Affinity Account. thanks!
  3. Thank you, Lee My bad for not posting in the right spot in the first place. cheers!
  4. I use an iPad Pro 12.9” 2nd Gen with a logi keyboard - made by Logitech, for those unfamiliar. While the Delete key in all other apps will…delete items, in the iPad version of Designer, it does not. It would be a big help ergonomically for the delete key to selected items. I’m a lefty, so my left hand is busy with the stylus. Were I a rightie, CMD-X would work fine. Thank you
  5. I guess it is just a name, yes, but names often hint at what you’re getting. It’s almost like a qualification. Since the naming is different, it suggests that what’s in the can is different, too. like coke classic. Is it real coca-cola? If it is, why does it have a different name? It suggests you’re not actually getting the real thing, but some kind of euphemistically-named substitute. this might be overthinking…. however, when I learned that it seemed there’d be an iPad version of possibly the greatest graphics suite ever created, it felt like the plan was to offer a cross-platform work environment… …which I feel is why we’re all on the edge of our seats waiting for it. having a v2 when there isn’t even a v1 makes one think that it’s not a continuation of what we have on mac and windows, but something with clipped wings. still…will be cool when it arrives.
  6. Beautifully stated. Is it a pared-down fork of the real Publisher? like, a Squire Stratocaster?
  7. I am using a 2021 Version of Word / Office for Mac. Weird..yesterday, when I opened from Word, I was presented with some kind of converter settings box saying "select the settings until the PDF looks right." Never looked right. Today, same method of opening, and Word Opens the PDF straight away..mangles it a bit, but the text's there.
  8. I can PDF a publisher document, and open it in LibreOffice, but MS Word just gives me that dumb Homer Simpson look. I guess from LibreOffice, I could save out as a Word format, then open and re-save in the real Word to really...Wordify it? I'm not seeing a quicker one. Thank you in advance if anyone else does.
  9. Have object selected, need to zoom in, finger gesture zooms in on desired object, then “moves” elsewhere; IOW, the ultimate zoom view is not what I zoomed in on. Trying to zoom in on the word, “Iris.” Happens frequently. Video shows the issue. Is there a fix or workaround? Thank you. AD zoom fail.mp4
  10. Is it possible to instruct iPad Designer to change the dimension of an artboard to user-typed dimensions, without distorting anything on the artboard? Seems like I should be able to, but the controls I’ve tried, such as “resize document,” or the “transform studio” don’t result in what I’m after. Thank you
  11. DWright - I need to get into the habit of taking screen recordings when these weird thing happen. I tried to re-create it but could not.
  12. Is there a way to either clear out styles which seem to accompany new-table creation, or to impose existing Document styles onto the table? As I typed, I got this weird pink italic style - not a style of my creation. I tried selecting the entire table, then clicking on the style I wanted - no help. If you had a truly large table, having to correct that cell by cell would be tee. dee. uss. thank you for any clues about this.
  13. Does this work in 2022? Can’t seem to make it happen.
  14. My bad..I whiffed on that question. Yes, after the restart, I resumed work on the same file which had just taken an unusual amount of time to save, and found that subsequent savings took the usual amount of time - for this file, a few moments. Thank you
  15. I did a restart after seeing the abnormally-long save. Had to force quite Designer, but my changes had been captured. Thank you!
  16. Screencapture shows the two corner points I’m working with. The right one will round using the Corner tool; the left won’t. It appears to be just one point. Object is a curve. Any clue what the issue is? Thank you CantRoundBottom2Corners.afdesign
  17. Thank you, Dan. iPad Model: 12.9” iPad Pro 2nd Gen; iPad OS 15.5; Save Location during delay: iPad > Files > Affinity Designer Pallet_iPad_Better_Perspective.afdesign
  18. I’m working on a file that’s about 77kb and is not complex: few shapes, no gradients. I just Saved and the spinning gear and “Saving” have been on the screen for several minutes. Given that this is a small, relatively simple file, what could be the reason for this unusually long save time? thank you
  19. So…is the speculation that only the latest iPads will be able to run Publisher, or we just don’t know?
