  1. Hello! Is there a way to export/import document presets? To clarify exactly which presets I am referring to, below is a pic. I know that APub stores such things under the user profile, but cannot find a location where these particular custom presets are stored. Thanks, Chris
  2. What Application are you using? All of them Are you using the latest release version? Yes all have been updated Can you reproduce it? Yep video attached Does it happen for a new document? If not can you upload a document that shows the problem? N/A happens when opening the software If you cannot provide a sample document then please give an accurate description of the problem for example it should include most of the following: What is your operating system and version. Osx Sonoma Developer Beta 1 Is hardware acceleration (in Preferences > Performance) ON or OFF ? have tried both What happened for you. No change Provide a recipe for creating the problem. open any of the suite, and then click onto anything else, safari, the desktop etc and it will crash the app. Screenshots (very handy) or a screen capture/video. attached Any unusual hardware. Nothing unusual, using a mbp 16inch m2 max 32gb of ram. Did this same thing used to work and if so have you changed anything recently? It worked pre osx beta, but after installing the beta it means im unable to use the affinity beta Screen Recording 2023-07-03 at 19.56.42.mov
  3. Hi, just found this. The dialog does not show the lock icon to clamp | unclamp proportional resize on export. This has been present in v1 and is also in customer v2.0.4
  4. I think it would be better if the Beta products could be accessed from the "Your account" button on the Affinity Store (https://affinity.serif.com/en-gb/). Seeing that I have multiple addons that I got with V1, the free addons for V2, the software keys for all V1 & V2 products and additional addon purchases, the Beta downloads are now halfway in the list. Wouldn't it be better if you get an additional beta button in the your account button to immediately go to the beta downloads? At least, that would have made it a lot easier to find (and thus easier to participate for new members).
  5. Good evening. As a user of the Beta program, I am reporting the following bug that is occurring on the Windows 10 operating system. Affinity Publisher Beta : error exporting to PDF. It is impossible to export to PDF and sometimes to other formats. When exporting a simple document, it gets stuck in an infinite loop Attached video. Regards Windows specifications: Edition: Windows 10 Pro Version: 22H2 OS Build: 19045.2728 Windows Experience: Feature Experience Pack 120.2212.4190.0 AMD Ryzen 5700x /8 Cores Processor MAG B550 Tomahawk Max wifi Nvidia Geforce 2060 Super 8 Gigas APBug.mov Memory 48 GB 3600 Mhz APBug2.mov
  6. Good day! I'm a Mac user. How do I join the beta program? 🙂
  7. First of all - THANK YOU for finally fixing the resizing anchoring 😍 I need this a lot for web design where each content page simulates another HTML document height. Now all last used anchor and size-(un)clamp settings are remembered - such a timesaver 😘 All page content is now anchored to the right corner/side after OK. Unfortunately only the master page object always snaps back to center - ignoring the used anchoring. Why is this relevant ? In my usecase i would like to place some recurring header elements onto one or more master pages to have them on each simulated content page. But if the master page layer always jumps to center after resizing i always have to manually shift this object back to top. This is so annoying after time that i don't use master pages for web design at all. Too bad, because that would be very helpful here.
  8. I found two inconsistencies: 1) Now also WebP and JPG XL support zoom 👍. Adding the hand/pan cusor is a good idea 👍. But only if the user knows the shortcut CTRL+1 it's now also possible to zoom to a 1:1 pixel preview for WebP, JPG XL. Eventually it might be better to add some distinct icons to the header or footer of the preview panel to promote all actions the user may execute ? Moreover it's a little bit choppy sometimes when you try to zoom with CTRL+mousewheel or CTRL+1. The reason might be, that you have to ensure that the document preview rectangle is in focus. Meaning if you zoomed out to far and use CTRL+mousewheel to zoom in again or CTRL+1 for pixel preview you often get no feedback from the panel. Unlike in the normal document viewport where you can use the CTRL+mousewheel and all zoom shortcuts everywhere (outside pasteboard, on background) in the export dialog panel you have to explicitely target the document rectangle to zoom by shortcuts or mousewheel. Meaning first click or hover inside the preview thumbnail and then use mousewheel or shortcut. This is counter intuitive because there is a 50% chance that a user might experience the zoom functionality as broken - not knowing that he has to zoom directly inside the visible thumbnail, not elsewhere. 2) Witin one usage session for some fileformats the dialog does not remember the just used last custom settings, e.g. interpolation, quality, lossless. If I do an export e.g. to WebP with 45% quality and bicubic -> OK -> save and open the export dialog for the second time all my last used custom settings are reset to the default WebP settings. For e.g. JPG the last custom settings are remembered with the next export dialog open: I guess this applies to all three apps.
  9. This applies also to Designer and Photo installation. After starting the installer (doubleclick .msix in Windows explorer) the install process starts and proceeds in German. When the App is started for the first time the EUAL agreement shows some Strings in German and the license in English. Maybe this is only in the beta ?
  10. I know this is not ab bug and there are huge discussions about the graphic appearence of the dark/light UX. I found some situations during all day work where i really could hardly distinguish the area a dialog or palette covers. This is especially obviuos with undocked floating palettes. E.g. sometimes it's hard to tell quickly which "X"-close buttons belongs to which dialog. I guess all dialogs and floating palettes would profit from the distinct black (?) outline border that is applied e.g. in the "New" dialog. It may look a little bit less "nice" but for usability reasons this might be helpfull.
  11. For users who are using Win 11, for me is the beta the best way to work under Windows 11. I can use it with OpenCL ON and don't have problems with freezes or hangs . There is a better system memory behavior. Regular 1.10.4 hangs on every minute when I use brushes in witch way, mostly it hangs on high memory use. And no OpenCL.
  12. I had yesterday three times the problem that my project I was working on disapear at once, no warning or crash reports. this was happening I was using a frankandtoon brush where I was clicking several times behind another. The brush was very small in size. No hardware accelaration on. someone has this also? Afterwards I could started further with a a not saved backup.
  13. @ dev team - I have filed a few bug reports already in the last couple of days, but I am seeing almost non-stop crashes with publisher on Windows 10. I can only work about 15 minutes maximum before I crash for any number of things. the last time I was simply trying to move the cursor left in the text block, or rotate an image. In addition, the entire setup is getting pretty sluggish. Clearly there is something else at play in the background, but hoping you might be able to review my file and or give me a beta version that has extensive logging enabled to help understand what is going wrong. I am so frustrated at this point that I need some help to figure out how to make this all work more reliably. Can you please reach out to me to help me figure out how to get past these issue?
  14. I found a bug in the latest beta 1.9.2.xxx and last release version in Affinity photo, depending on hardware acceleration. If hardware acceleration is on, notebook with Intel HD Graphics 520 on chip is on, then the gaussian blur filter change the image completely to white with adjusted radius greater than 10px. That happens also with the filter frequency separation. With hardware acceleration of the fiters works well with high adjustments. On my desktop computer with a G-Force 950 this bug is not present. Regards Erhard
  15. What? My pages are upside down? The ruler is backwards? This is crazy. off pub beta 1024 AFTER my 1.9.1 version locked up and won't open. AFTER I linked two images instead of embedding files. Now I can't open the original and the beta looks like this!@@ This is the second install after I zipped the original and the 1st beta and put them temporarily in the trash instead of applications. All my assets are gone all my presets gone. All my fonts missing. What is happening with your programs. I am over 10 days into watching crashes. 25 of them yesterday, more today. And NOW this. Good grief. ANY ideas, ANYONE??? And why the gray lined separating one of my afpub files in the OPEN recent dialogue ( see picture) The top one crashes before I can unlink the resource. THEN there's the message about restore unsaved file but no idea what file and then it crashes. MacBook Pro 10.13.6 8 gb memory 2.3 ghz i5
  16. I downloaded the new beta tonight for Designer and each time I tried to register or sign in, it would either stay on the loading screen forever, or tell me it could not connect. Not sure what to do about that
  17. The program closes without warning when, in layers panel: I try to nest one layer into another and/or I click to expand the layer to show its contents.
  18. I just installed Affinity Designer Beta and I also installed Luminance Brush Pack to test it out. Although it installed properly, and don't know how to locate the brushes. I spend the last hour installing, reinstalling, logging in, logging out, reading countless forum posts, to no avail. Could you please let me know how can I access the Luminance Brush Pack within the app? Thanks
  19. Hi, when using a mask layer applied to a member layer of a live stack group, the mask behaves strange: observed: If the mask value is 255, the pixel is inlcuded and shown. If the mask value is bewteen 0 to 254, the pixel is not shown. Expected: Values between 0 and 254 should lead to an pixel with accoring alpha. You can try at your own by adjusting the slider of the levels adjustment. You can see that it only affects which pixels are shown (when reaching alpha 255). I might be wrong with my expectation live_stack_and_mask.afphoto
  20. In the latest Publisher beta I noticed that there is a new menu item in the Layer menu called “Convert to Image Resource”. What is an “Image Resource”, what can I make into one, and why might I want to do so? I can’t seem to find anything in the Help about this, but I might be looking in the wrong places.
  21. Hello team, I miss in Publisher the possibility of an overprint preview, as well as the possibility to set individual colors or objects to "overprint" or "cut out" (hope this is the right term, maybe "omit" is better?). I did not find a satisfying answer in the forum. Are these features available and I just can't find them? Regards, Puck
  22. I’ve had a bit of an experiment with it on curves and shapes but can’t seem to get it to make a difference whether it is on or off? (I did a bit of searching in the forums but started to get frustrated with how the search works.)
