  1. Affinity Photo V2 - Version 2.0.3.321 iPad 6th generation, iOS 16.2 I can’t sign in to my Affinity account on Affinity Photo V2. In the screen capture below, I put in my account details and repeatedly pressed “sign in” to no avail. Closing out the program and relaunching sends me right back to the sign in/create an account screen. This has been happening since (on all of the software) since I’ve downloaded the software around Christmas time. Thankfully the programs are registered under my account or i’d be out of luck. When I open a document in Publisher, i’m able to use studio link, so I am not sure why I can’t connect my account. I included a screen capture of that as well just in case. IMG_1362.MOV IMG_1363.MOV
  2. Hey all, Is there any way to recognise/use the enter key on the numeric keypad as a »regular« enter key? I can't get it mapped as I don't even know where I would set it under the shortcuts. But I would find it incredibly more intuitive this way than having to reach across half the keyboard afterwards to confirm (or alternatively use the mouse to find the appropriate button to confirm) after entering values in a transform process. I noticed this especially during the cropping process with the cropping tool in Photo. I would like to confirm the process, but the numeric keypad enter key is not assigned at all and only gets the error tone. Can someone point me in the right direction on how to set this up, if that's even possible? And if not: well, why hasn't that been an option for a long time? I couldn't be the only one who was bothered by this, could I? 😅 Cheers!
  3. Hello Am i missing something or are the WARP tools found in Designer not in Photo? This should be available in both programs and used the same way. Gary
  4. Hello. I bought and installed the "Affinity v2" suite, and I'm almost satisfied with it, except for a problem with the software crashing when I try to open a file. I'm on macOS 10.15.7 and, when I do: "Right click" > "Open with..." > "Affinity Designer 2" / "Affinity Publisher 2" / "Affinity Photo 2" on a file (PNG, JPG, SVG, PDF, etc.), the software open before crashing immediately. Now when I open "Affinity Designer 2", "Affinity Publisher 2" or "Affinity Photo 2" directly, sometimes it works fine and I can open my file, sometimes it crashes immediately (regardless of the file type I tries to open). I was therefore forced to reinstall versions 1 of "Affinity" (which work without any problems) in order to be able to launch my software. Do you have a solution to solve this problem? Do you need the crash reports generated by macOS? Awaiting your reply. Best regards.
  5. 1st of all, amazing build of the 2.0 version! Love the addition of data merge. As well as the other aspects in the Suite 😃 I have however 1 question/request for the Software suite (all 3 of them). The ability to change the UI when working on Windows. As I work mostly remote on my Surface Pro. I find it many times handy working with the pen. However the UI on Windows is build on mouse and Keyboard work. Is it possible to add an addition to the UI, where you have the ability to change the UI based on mouse/keyboard work or Tablet/Pen work/view. (As UI the Ipad has probably an amazing UI/UX experience, this could be something as base) This by example with a click on an icon in the Toolbar or in view. By not having loads of money for an Ipad, it sure would be amazing to have this added in a future update. 🙂
  6. I have download vector from paid Shutterstock account in EPS format. Already in thumbnail in Finder I have noticed that "background layer" is white and it shouldn't be. After opening that EPS with Affinity designer it didn't had white "background layer" anymore but it did have weird white lines over that "background layer". If you zoom in in that attached image you will see ti. I attached video from Affinity designer as well. After searching online for clues, best answer I found was from Reddit: "Unfortunately, most stock pages offer "adobe EPS"-files (AI-EPS), which include stuff beyond the EPS standards. So, depending on the EPS file, some import flawlessly and some just have proprietary features implemented, which Affinity can't render. "Illustrator EPS" are very often "cheating". They provide only a (small) pixelated preview, with full native and proprietary AI file format for the real image embedded. That's also a problem the other way round. A lot of stock pages reject EPS files when created in Affinity, because they expect some features embedded in "AI's way"." Is that true? Is there is something I can to about it? Do you know if there is any Affinity friendly stock photography website that large collection of photographs and vectors? Screen Recording 2021-04-15 at 20.31.04.mp4
  7. Just upgraded to the new Affinity Suite after using it daily for 4-5 years. Not sure it justifies the jump to a major release. There are as far as I can see only slight improvements. The versions suffers from the same lack of features many mentioned for years. One thing for sure didn't improve are the app icons. I created a little pack for myself and maybe some of you might enjoy it as well. Peace Y. Affinity YS App Icons.afdesign
  8. Here's a thread from 2014... It's crazy to think that you would have implemented this by now (2022) unless you're going the Reason Studios route, "We know what you need, you don't!" unless I'm missing something....
  9. In this video I share with you how to fix RTL on Affinity Designer but its work Publisher and Photo as well, Free Fix Download Link: https://leomoon.com/downloads/desktop-apps/leomoon-parsinegar/ Enjoy!
  10. I have V1 Affinity Photo and Affinity Designer (I don't have an Affinity Publisher). Will users who have AP and AD licenses get a discount on upgrades from V1 to V2? I just didn't buy the entire Affinity bundle as I never needed a Affinity Publisher. I would like to point out that I have 2/3 programs from Serif. A discount when purchasing V2 upgrade for V1 users would be a nice appreciation. I use Affinity Photo and Affinity Designer for fun, it's my hobby in my spare time
  11. Dear Serif Software 🙂 I have a very hard time living with the difference between document setup editing on an iPad and desktop. It happens very often that I change the document settings sometimes along the way long after a document is created. Very often it's just the orientation I change, other times I go from A3 to A1 format out of necessity or because I or someone else set up the document incorrectly from the start. And that mistake is quickly fixed in the desktop version: Document setup: change document size, select scale or anchor to page etc. Or more. You can't do that at all in the iPad version? I only find resize, which scales and smashes the content on top of that, by scaling it unproportionally? This is completely disastrous when you only have your iPad with you for days or weeks at a time, and don't have access to a desktop computer. And that's core functionality, not one of those minor things that can be left out of the iPad version. So I hope you can improve this significantly, thank you. I work on an iPad Pro.
  12. Dear Serif Software 🙂 I travel a lot, and for that I constantly use an iPad Pro 2022 model that gives me maximum freedom to work seriously, professionally and flexibly. And after all, that's what iPad Pro is made for. When I can work at a desk, I have a mouse connected via a USB-C Digital AV Multiport Adapter, and I also somewhat redundantly have a Magic Trackpad at my right hand. Still, I really miss being able to zoom with my mice that have scroll wheel, which I can also do on the desktop version. It's so much more efficient to zoom in and out where you are with the scroll wheel, and when I'm sitting with the mouse in my hand and using it, it's silly not to take advantage of it. 🙂 I use Designer the most for big illustrations and I zoom a lot in and out. A lot. Using my fingers for it is less effective, and when I use the Apple keyboard as well (that is now supported by Affinity v2) reaching for the screen with you hand as well is awkward. It's not that the scroll wheel isn't supported by iPadOS, it's supported fine by iPadOS itself, but has no function within Affinity, so I hope you can get it implemented like in the desktop edition. 🙂
  13. Android tablet getting pretty good. And there is no combination in it if you add the affinity suite. There is no full creative apps in Android it would be amazing if we could have apps like the affinity suite. Thanks and I hope y'all think about it
  14. Thank you Serif/Affinity team for the new release! can't wait to use Affinity V2 apps... Could anyone please explain what the difference between Affinity V2 Universal License (Multi-user) and Individual Affinity V2 Universal License. is Multi user version like a floating license? Also, is there a discounted upgrade price for V1 user?
  15. Hello guys, Could you please help me? When I take the Frame text tool, unwanted black line appears there (in all the suite) - I attached the screenshot - doesn't happen when I use artistic text tool - the outline color is off, even outline itself is off Thank you, hopefully you know, whats going on
  16. I have an issue with UI scaling the brush variable settings on the side of the workspace when in my usual landscape orientation (iPad) The three options for hardness, size & opacity bleed off the screen and make them unusable at the higher or lower values (see pictured example) These options fit on screen just fine in portrait mode, however I almost never work in portrait mode, and having to flip my iPad around every time I need to change brush values is annoying. Is there a future fix for this?

For the macOS release, in the application main menu there is an option "Check for Updates". Alternatively, you can download the latest installer by logging into the affinity store here and find the order in your account and use the "download" button in there. Updates are installed automatically (or manually by installing the new version over the old) Previous builds do not need uninstalling first. New installations of paid software downloaded from the Affinity Store requires a product key and email pair to use. Software downloaded from the Mac App Store, Microsoft Store and iPad store do not require a product key and are updated through the relevant store: If you’ve purchased from the Mac App Store— updates are done automatically next time you run your software after it is available in the Mac App Store. However, you do need to be logged in with the same Apple ID you used to buy them. If this does not happen for you, open the Mac App Store app and go to the Updates page and then Store > Reload page or press CMD+R. This should hopefully force the update to show. Apple sometimes phase roll outs around the world which can mean it may take up to 72 hours for your update to be available. If you’ve purchased from the Microsoft Store— Microsoft Store updates are done automatically by the operating system (each time you start the application). If this does not happen for you, open the Windows Store app and click the three dots in the top right corner of the app and then go to Downloads and Updates. Click Get Updates. This should hopefully force the update to show. If you’ve purchased from the Pad Store— Your Affinity iPad apps should update automatically next time you run them. However, you do need to be logged in with the same Apple ID you used to buy them. If the automatic update does not happen for you, go to the iPad Store app and go to Updates. Once you’re there, tap near the top of the screen where it states 'Updates' and then hold, pull down and then release. This should manually refresh the updates page. However, don’t contact us if the updates are not available for you yet—Apple sometimes phase roll outs around the world and this can take up to 24 hours. ---------- This thread is locked and will only be posted to by Serif Staff as the released versions change.

  18. This is one my side projects for 2022. I run a FaceBook group on the BOAC Speedbird aircraft and "The BOAC Speedbird Adverts" book which contains 133 rare adverts (B&W and colour) from 1940-1970. The adverts were cleaned up using Affinity Photo and the cover was put together with Affinity Designer and of course the book was put together using the Affinity Publisher.

  19. Hello Folks, here is my feedback - I loved v1 and it was a no-brainer to buy v2 instantly. But I am a bit disappointed - and I would like to give you some feedback why: Affinity Photo: I expected some AI involvement, like background removing. Even the iOS Photo app has great results doing so, but Affinity Photo stucks at this point where it started with v1 years ago. Also some KI upscaler would have been great. Affinity Designer: A lot of people requested and it is one of the main gaps between Affinity Designer and Adobe Illustrator: Auto Trace: Transforming pixel files into vector files. All apps (on windows): Pls add std. executable Files instead of the "new" format which has so much limits (no chance to choose a specific path etc). So tricky to get manual Shortcuts to the Desktop and Affinity Folder. Also: I understand due to new possibilities v2 cannot be opened by v1 Apps, but there should be the possibility to export from v2 into a format v1 can read (with limitation, like live filters will cause permanent etc.) Hopefully you will hook up (like in the past) with new features like I mentioned with upcoming Versions. In the end, yes I am disappointed but a lot of the new features are really good! Not everything is black and bad
  20. I installed and registered my three new Version 2 programmes yesterday. I also had the chance to work with them, yesterday. This evening 11/11/22 I wanted to play a bit with them and they do not initialize. They do not load fully.
  21. Oh, I hoped we could get rid of this annoyance (semi-bug). When you enter a value, for example a numeric value in stroke width field and then hit enter, that field keeps selected, so if you press P or V or M for any other tool in enters that letter into the field, see Gif below. You need to click anywhere or click the tool to deselect the field. These "little things" are not so little when they happen so often while working.
  22. Is there anyway to switch off the preview pane from the export dialogue box? It is taking time to compose the preview and to a certain degree it is not needed for me.
  23. I am trying to run the Affinity suite on Windows 11 ARM64 (4GB RAM), installed from the Microsoft Store. I expected that the apps would be slow but usable under x64 emulation, but all three (Photo, Designer, Publisher) crash after displaying the splash screen (and a warning about lacking a DirectX 10 graphics card and falling back to software rendering). The Windows Event Log shows the following backtrace: Application: Photo.exe Framework Version: v4.0.30319 Description: The process was terminated due to an unhandled exception.

  24. I’ve been trying out V2 on the iPad. I traditionally draw single frame cartoons, now I'm shifting to single-frame stories. Getting use to the interface change has been a bit time consuming, but overall it's been a positive experience. I'm looking forward to seeing how the iPad platform evolves. Working while sitting on the couch instead of an office desk is a major bonus. I hope you enjoy my submission.
  25. For V1, I had submitted plenty of feature requests and some bug reports. I presume that any logged bugs/ improvements won't have to be resubmitted. But what about those who did not make it to V2? Shouldn't it be possible to selectively restore the topics that are still relevant? Or is the idea that you do have to repost them? I wasn't around during the pre 1.9 era, so I don't know the conventions sadly.
