  1. I must bring many of my former Adobe files (Illustrator and InDesign) into AffDesigner and AffPUblisher after saving them in Adobe in the necessary Adobe format. They import, but of course the programming approach to layers being so different means that I must recreate these layers in Affinity. Sometimes a layer will come over, as well as the objects or texts in that layer. Most of the time, however, each individual parts of a graphic appear as a multitude of separate object in Affinity. One big problem is that entire paragraphs of text come over a separate lines (multi-lines). I understand why that it is in the transfer process, but I also wonder if Affinity has anyway to bring them into a single paragraph, short of copy/paste. I imagine that Adobe exports objects as a PDF, as SVGs or in the case of text on a path properly oriented but as individual outlined letters. Given what must be great challenges of going from Adobe to Affinity, I am happy for what I do get even though the reorganization task is tedious, but I also wonder if anyone has found ways to make the cumbersome Adobe format come more faithfully into Affinity (where thankfully it is much easier to work with!). In the past I have found that transferring each of my muiiltitute of layers and sub-layers separately sometimes worked, but recently it has not. Is this a new Adobe sabotage or perhaps dependent up many factors not visible to the user? I don't expect any magic solution, but any help would be much appreciated. PS: Yes, I could copy each text box in the InDesign doc, paste it into APub and reformat it, but that is very time consuming if a more effective way exists.
  2. Does anyone Know if Affinity Designer and Affinity Photo support the use in the Veikk A30 Pen Tablet? Really need to know im thinking about buying it and im really need to Know if i will be able to use it Thank a lot
  3. Ever since the latest update I've been experiencing a notable increase in strange, brief, intermittent glitches on my iMac monitor when quitting Affinity apps. I don't experience it much when working in the apps (sometimes when merging layers), but it's definitely most notable a few seconds after I quit the apps. It seems somehow worsened when I have a browser window open (Google Chrome, Safari, or Brave). I've also experienced some screen flickers in-app when developing RAW images in Photo, especially any format other than DNG (such as the Nikon NEF format), or when working with larger files. I'm running a dual monitor setup (iMac and a graphics drawing tablet as my second monitor), and the latest version of MacOS (Mojave Version 10.14.6). It's difficult to explain, but it looks similar to glitches experiencing with failing graphics cards, but they only flash/flicker once and then disappear until I quit the apps again, where a failed graphics card would show a permanent glitched display. I initially thought this was a graphics card issue on my side (I've dealt with that before), but after some research I found that this is a known issue between certain apps and the newer MacOS. Here's an article stating that this is is well an issue that is fairly widespread, and can be caused when running certain apps: https://pdf.wondershare.com/macos-10-14/fix-screen-flickers-on-macos-10-14.html I've tried all the steps mentioned to help eliminate the flickering (SMC reset, NVRam reset, booted in Safe Mode, and even ran First Aid on my hard drive to try and iron out any possible system bugs). I have no idea what's causing this, but it's a bit worrying. I'm scared that I'm maxing out my graphics card, or somehow putting too much strain on it when quitting the apps or something. I've even set my Display to "GPU (Basic)", the Retina Rendering to "Low Quality", and disabled "Metal Compute Acceleration" in the Affinity preferences, but it doesn't seem to be helping. I've posted in Affinity groups on Facebook and have received confirmation from a few other users/people that they are also experiencing this when using Affinity. I just want to raise awareness of this issue by posting on here, and hopefully push for a possible fix.
  4. hi, I have a question - do not you plan to enter Affinity on Android devices? - today devices with this system are able to support the software often have better solutions than those in Apple - an example may be Note series from Samsung, these phones and tablets have a great hardware specification as well as have an excellent S-pean

  7. I would love it if you would create a Video Editing Software like premier (but better obviously) As a college student I have two choices pay the expensive price of £16 a month for Adobe's okay software or get it offline illegally and unsafe. I have already Purchased Affinity Photo, am about to Purchase Affinity Designer but would absolutely love it if there was a affinity video editor for my media. I know this might not be your kinda thing but it would be so great and I know so many people would rather use this than adobe. You're ahead of them, keep it up.
  8. When using Affinity Photo (or Designer) for illustration or digital painting, there are two features that I use super often - the brush moodier shortcut (ctrl+alt+drag left/right) and canvas rotation. The issue is that the direction of the shortcut changes to the rotation angle of the canvas, meaning I keep accidentally changing the hardness of the brush instead of thew size while working. It would be great to have this shortcut act independently and irrespective of the angle of the canvas, so that dragging left or right still affects the size of the brush, regardless of how much my canvas is rotated. As an example, if I've rotated my canvas by 90 degrees, dragging left/right changes the hardness instead of the size as it usually would when the canvas isn't rotated. When working fast, it's incredibly difficult to keep track of how much the canvas is rotated to be able to use the shortcut properly. *PS. A dedicated rotation tool for freely rotating the canvas would be an amazing addition to Affinity! 😉
  9. I am trying to upload some newly purchased Luts into my Affinity photo software but for the life of me I can not find the folder for the pre-existing luts with the program to add on to them. I've searched every folder relating to the program on my computer but there is nothing there that dictates the pre-existing luts so I can add more to them. I.e. presets. Let me know if I'm searching in all the wrong places or if affinity is just that unorganized with their files and felt like sending people on great journeys.
  10. Writing in Arabic letters is in an unnatural distorted form on a program Affinity designer, Not like Photoshop for example. in affinity Letters are broken and inconsistent with each other
  11. Hi, I'm new to use Affinity Photo and Affinity Design. Till now I used Photoshop. I'm missing some function in Affinity. Can someone tell me how to rotate the canvas in Affinity Photo and how to change the Brush size with the mouse like Photoshop.
  12. Hallo zusammen, Ich werde so langsam richtig sauer auf Serif, keine Hilfestellung, gar nichts kommt von dieser Firma. Alles muss man durch ausprobieren und testen sich erarbeiten. Serif Drawplus 8 war wesentlich besser an Werkzeugen ausgestattet als der Designer 1.8 und auch Photoplus war besser, da konnte man selbst noch Filter einfach nachladen, und sie funktionierten auch noch. Ich werde das Gefühl nicht los die Firma Serif meint das nicht so ganz ernst. Jedes Jahr ein update und das wars dann. Rüstet endlich die Tools von Drawplus 8 nach, ihr habt den Programmcode doch. Da gab es ein Tool zum vektorisieren von Fotos, wo ist sowas in Affinity. Wieso gibt es keine Pfade in denen man Fonts für Affinity ablegen kann, nicht jeder will Fonts in Windows installieren die man nur einmal braucht. Und dann alles in Englisch sehr Kundenfreundlich, mir geht das dauernde übersetzen ganz schön auf die Nerven. Selbst die deutschen Youtuber haben es aufgegeben dort gibt es kaum noch Videos auf deutsch. Die Aktion im Mai war wohl die reinste Werbeveranstaltung für eure Designer welche von eurem Produkt ihr Geld verdienen. Diese Veranstaltung haben für uns normal Usern gar nicht gebracht, ich hätte mich über ein paar Pinsel, Assets, Stile mehr gefreut. Wenn nicht bald ein gescheites Update kommt, in dem wirklich neue gute Tools integriert sind, könnt ihr so langsam einpacken. Ich meine damit ausschließlich Photo und Designer, diesen komischen Publisher braucht kein Mensch und wenn dann gibt es auch dafür bessere Programme. Warum gibt es keine Updates zwischendurch um die vielen Fehler auszumerzen. Ich bin richtig enttäuscht, viel versprochen aber bis jetzt wenig gehalten. Gruß Dieter
  13. Hi,I've just purchased a new computer. I visited Affinity site to re-download the software onto this. There appears no way to do this without purchasing again, which I obviously don't wish to do. How do you transfer or download my purchased copy? Thank you.
  14. Hi affinity, there is no possibility to Export All preferences or settings including View, Editing, also there is no way to export "New project-> MY PRESETS" so please add the possibility in the next updates, I mean Export/Import. Thanks 💙.
  15. When using the brush tool in Affinity apps I always get very odd brush size increments when using the square bracket ( [ ] ) keys to change the brush size. If I use a 10px brush and use "]" to size it up one increment, it doesn't go to the expected 15px, but rather to 11,5 px. And then, if I press the "[" key to size the brush back down to 10px from 11,5px, it randomly ends up at 9,8px (?). Pressing "]" three times from 9px results in 9px, 10,4px, 11,9px, and 13,7px, instead of the expected 9px, 10px, 15px, and 20px values. I find this a bit strange, as I feel that decimal pixel values for brush sizes make little to no difference, and it's just generally odd that using the square brackets to change brush sizes doesn't just use rounded increments - I hate mentioning Photoshop as a reference example, but if if ain't broke... For instance, using the brackets between the values 1px and 10px should only change the brush size in increments of 1px (1,2,3,4,5px...), anything between 10px and 50px should change in increments of 5px (10, 15, 20, 25, 30px...), anything between 50px and 100px should change in increments of 10px (50, 60, 70, 80, 90px...), anything between 100px and 200px should change in increments of 25px (100, 125, 150, 200px), then 50px, and anything above 300px should change in increments of 100px every time you press the square bracket(s). Is there a significance to these weird, decimal pixel increment values? If so, is there a way to change it back to something more normal/user friendly?

  17. Hello affinity community, i work on photos creating vectors from the colors of the photo. Super cool effects. Eventually i find lots of palette's get accumulated in swatches. Any way to delete mass palette??? rather than one by one Thanks.
  18. Why can I not paint in Affinity Photo? It is as if the program does not register that I am putting a black paint stroke on a layer...or any other color stroke for that matter.
  19. What's happened to the pricing of Affinity Photo? The normal price has been $49.99 or £39.99. Today it is $49.99 or £48.99. Last I checked, Serif is a UK company right?
  20. Hi, I have today purchased and installed Affinity Designer on my home computer, so I presume I have the latest version. Unfortunately, I purchased it without first trying it. My bad. I was expecting Affinity Designer to be more advanced than DrawPlus and while in many ways it is, I discovered to my dismay that a tool that is quite important for designing logos etc., is conspicuous by its absence. And that is the Envelope Deformation Tool. I have been using Serif products for quite a while now and was quite satisfied with them until I came across this setback. This tool is very much there in DrawPlus, so why is it not included in Designer? Affinity already has the code. I cannot understand this. Serif has promised inclusion of this feature in a post back in 2018 (or so), but as yet haven't kept up to their promise. So, I presume it is clearly not on their agenda. So, my questions are: Is there a work around, where I can fit objects like text into an envelope and then deform it in Designer itself? I know there are some tutorials out there where you need to export the text into Affinity Photo and then manipulate it. That's too much of a complication. and Does Serif have a money back policy, if I am not happy with their product? I have looked thru' their website, but could not find any. I am happy to iuninstall Affinity Designer and get a refund for now. I can go back to it when things improve. My intention was to install AD and then uninstall DrawPlus, but I clearly can't do that now. It is a shame, but I need to have the envelope distortion tool. I thank Serif for dropping the price by 50%, but the envelope tool is very important for logo developers. Thanks for any guidance.
  21. How do you change the User Interface font size in Affinity Photo (1.5.0.45) on Windows? According to the help file, the option should be in Edit > Preferences > User Interface > Font UI Size, but it appears to be missing?
  22. I just received my hardback copy of the Affinity Designer Workbook. It looks great. At the start of each chapter is the "Resource" box with a filename in it. Where are these files to be found!? The book says, I see green box with the filename in it... but no link info. I tried tapping on it with my finger, but nothing happened. :)
  23. Well I got a new idea but instead of writing Tons of lines I just decided to open a 2 questions poll to see if my idea stands. Well, can discuss about here but answering the question would talk better while the points will stand as complementary ideas. Blessings!
