  1. Hi, I have downloaded the new 1.7.0 version and followed by 1.7.1. The performance is a disaster and a real workstopper. Drawing something with any Brush tool is the worse I have encounter anytime (no matter if Healing, Brush or Clone....). I have a new top series NTB and Wacom Pro..... but I feel like working with old 486 PC :( I have been using AP for about the time of the first official release, but never saw anything like this :( This had not been a case of 1.6. version that one worked fine for me, but now I do draw something on Wacom and have to wait around 2 to 5 seconds till I see it on the screen, which makes any realtime drawing impossible I have tried restarting many times..... sometimes it works most time not...... It does not seem to be problem of Wacom as it looks the same working with touchpad or a mouse. Do not tell me I am the only one with this problem...... Please let me now ASAP as I am a professional and this makes my job unable...... Thanks Jindra
  2. CMYK sliders in the latest version of Affinity Designer display incorrect scale from 0 to 255. They should display scale from 0 to 100 %. The Mac version displays the correct scale, only Windows version is affected. Thanks for correcting this.
  3. Hi I am using Designer The app does not respond to ANY keyboard input - be it shortcuts or even text. Accept importing the frankentoon nature brushes there have been no customizations. As seen by this text, the keyboard works properly on all other apps . How do I solve this?
  4. Performance really lags behind Illustrator and inkscape which can perform the below video without any lag (pencil tool). I've also tested on different machines with the same outcome. The performance gets worse the longer I use it. This is the best I can do to show the immediate effect.

  5. There is currently no way to flip a table horizontally (i.e., to reflect a facing page) and have text in proper format. Currently no workaround other than manually editing the facing master page. See post below.
  6. I used the pen tool on this program way back when (probably late 2017) and had no problem tracing my sketches into vector art. Now when I alt click a node (in 1.7) it turns the entire line straight instead of just removing one handle. Is this supposed to happen? Because right now the tool is virtually unusable.
  7. Es ist in Affinity Publisher für Windows 10 nicht möglich, in Eingabefeldern mit Hilfe der Tabulator-Taste von einem in das nächste Eingabefeld zu springen. Eigentlich eine Standardfunktion in jedem Programm. Ist es ein Bug oder muß in den Grundeinstellungen des Programms etwas geändert werden?
  8. Hi, here is a bug. Story: I make a master page, add artistic text as Heading 1, align to center and top of page. Then I make some new pages based off that master page. I'll go to the first one, detach it so I can edit, change the original h1 text content, go to alignment - align left, then click finish.... The master then changes to the left side too..... When I go to the next page, I'll align center, and all pages based off this master page now go center (including the one I just aligned left).... I go to the next page based off this master, align right, same thing: Everything is now on the right, including the master. Computer spec / hardware: Windows 10 Pro laptop, no external hardware. Affinity Publisher Version: Reproduceable / Happens in new document?? Yes and yes. See attached file. If this is not good enough, I'll make a short video of it. But please let me know if you need it first. detach-bug.afpub
  9. Dear Affinity Team, I found a weird bug in the example project "Lifestyle Magazine". I use Win 10 + German Version + As I was discovering the new features I stumbled upon a bug in the Mask edit functionality. It seems the Mask is very much out of place. I attached some screenshots to illustrate. 01) Downloaded the example project > Had a look at the guy on page 5 > pressed right click on the thumbnail of the mask layer > "Edit Mask" 02) When I clicked the "Edit Mask" > the pages went blank & only the contour/frame of the mask was visible > thought that was a bit strange, where is the mask shown in the layer thumbnail? 03) As I zoomed out I saw that the mask was out of place and was positioned on page 1. 04) However when I move the mask - for example - to the left, the guy gets cropped accordingly to the new position of the mask: 05) Here a larger screenshot of the new positioned mask in the layout: _ I hope you can reproduce the bug and make Publisher more awesome than it already is :D Cheers, chillahc
  10. I've updated to the latest Designer upon a pop up request to do so. If I click new document from the opening screen, if I close the opening screen and say file new document, or if I go to document setup in an existing document, the whole system freezes and crashes. No error code appears, it just freezes and I can't click anything. I have to open the task manager and shut it down. Please help!
  11. Hi, using Alignment / Away from spine in German version in a textstyle in an german version the app crashes immediately after accepting the change. Using with EN frontend, it need some time, but than it crashes, too. Having text with style in EN and changing the alignment of the style to "Towrds Spine" and accept the chance, the app crashes immediately, too.

  12. I just updated to v1.7.1 on iOS (I am running the iOS v13 beta2) and noticed a bug when zooming. Zoom / pan and rotate work fine until you turn on the grid and show it. After it is shown if you zoom out to full page and trying zoom in, the white background is clipped and it is hard to see the page. The first photo is zoomed way in and is fine. When I turn on the grid I get the second image when zoomed in. Turning off the show grid doesn’t fix it until you go back to the document browser then back into the document.
  13. So for example 'Calibri' doesn't support the checkmark character (U+2713), but Publisher automatically substitutes it with another font that supports that glyph -- for me, it is 'MS UI Gothic'. Of course, one may argue that using 'fake glyphs' implicitly is not necessarily the desired way to handle missing characters, but I think it is the expected behavior here. Problem: These unsupported-but-substituted characters temporarily become 'unknown' characters after using the Update Character Style function. Creating the problem: New document Frame Text Tool, text: some text [checkmark character] font: 'Calibri', though the [checkmark character] character implicitly becomes 'MS UI Gothic' Choose a character style (e. g. the built-in 'Emphasis' style) Modify the style of the text (e. g. increasing the font size) Update Character Style This is the result: some text [question-mark-in-a-square character] If I export it to .jpg or .pdf, it remains the same. Workarounds: If I save the file, then close, and reopen it, everything is good again. An easier way: Text menu -> Reapply Text Styles. [Windows 10, Affinity Publisher]
  14. Hey there, I really like the performance optimizations, but I found a really ugly bug. The menu on the right side has fuzzy letters. When I'm moving it to my external display and back, everything is fine.
  15. Using Affinity Designer, on Windows 10 x64 version 1809. Save As option is broken for any document I try to open and save. I have attached GIF with the recording of the error. Milan Petrovic
  16. For several builds now clicking on the HSL layer adjustment has been causing Photo to crash
  17. Wth RC2 and previous beta versions, I meet a strange problem. Painting won’t work anymore after a while. Colors are not applied (and the same for all tools). If I close the saved document and open it again, everything is OK, I can work for some time. But the problem will show again and again.
  18. Hi, In first place coment that I very happy with your product, but with the last version I have a little problems: 1.- when I have few minutes working with my wacom intuos pro m (pth-660) sometimes the program crushes, and im forced to close de program with de task admin. 2.- I can't see the brushes when I works with the wacom tablet, they are always the cursor arrow, and i can`t see the form or size. Someone can help me? thanks in addvance.
  19. Bug: The pickers do not pick the correct point in the Curves dialogue The graphs in the Affinity Curves dialogues input at the bottom and output at the left Input (bottom) has zero left and 100 right Output (left) has zero bottom and 100 top This can be seen in the following: On a CMYK version of a colour chart I have set two Samplers on the Info panel - the left sampler in the white paper, showing 0,0,0,0; and the right sampler in the pure cyan square showing 100,98,1,3 The curve in diagram 1 shows: a huge spike on the left at zero, from the white of the paper zero transformed to 87 (from the flat of the line on the left 100 being unchanged by the point top right of the graph These are confirmed by the new sampler values, the blue tinge to the white paper, and the unchanged solid cyan square If I now use the picker and place it in the cyan square, the node created on the graph is bottom left, somewhere around (12,12) in coordinates (second screenshot). First it should clearly be at one end of the line (as the blue square is 100% cyan) and it should be at the right-hand end of the line. Similarly if I reset and use the picker to choose from the white area (with zero cyan) it gives me a node top-right, rather than bottom left. This error can go unnoticed when selecting a single node because the curve will be symmetrical, so, if, say, the point chosen was 80, then the node would be 20, and the resulting curve when dragged down would be down equally at 80 and 20. However when trying to create an S curve, it falls apart (and wastes a lot of time!)

  20. Hi, since last update, I can't move my brush size ! Slider does not work at all. Is there a way to fix that? I'm on the latest version of Affinity for iPad. And I'm working on an iPad pro 12.9 OSX 12.2. Thx for your answer.
  21. Hi there, I'm working on AFD Beta 1.7.11 on MacBook Pro from 2018 with Mac OS X 10.14.4 and have to report a very serious problem with file saving: After working for some days on a larger project I saved the file (to iCloud), exported a PDF and quit working for this day. The other day upon opening the file I was prompted with a dialogue box asking if I would like to restore from a previously stored version (like after a crash). Not thinking about I clicked ok and AFD opened a version of my file which reflected the status from tow days or so before – all subsequent work was lost and couldn't be restored. I made a copy of the file leaving the original file as it was, double checked all relevant settings (i. e. restoring intervall set to 300 seconds) and started again this time working on the copy. During work I manually safed on a very regular basis every few minutes. After being ready I once again exported my work as PDF, saved and quit the app. Upon restarting the app and reopening the working copy file, once again the file didn't reflect the last saved status (the one I exported the PDF from) anymore. This time not as many parts as before where lost, but all parts done within the last two hours of work before quiting were gone. Different to the day before no prompt appeared. I haven't used the Beta again since then but went back to 1.6.1 so I can't tell if this is file specific or not. But I can definitely confirm that the file was saved over and over again manually including the last version before quit (the one I exported the PDF from). I can also confirm there wasn't a crash or forced quit before this.

    Brush zoom bug

    Hello, Today I needed such a simple drawn shape and thought I would do it in Designer, since I convinced my employee to buy a licence. However I ran into a strange and annoying bug – merely upon changing zoom level, the brushed stroke changes its appearance. I have included the link to an animated gif that shows the shape at 75, 100, 150 and 200% zoom and a source file as well. What’s even more frustrating, I actually discovered it after i had exported the PNG file at twice the resolution and found out it the stroke changed in it. Try opening the attached .afdesign file (Windows 10 at my end here at work) and clicking Ctrl + + and Ctrl + - and see the stroke going “alive”. Please see this: https://imgur.com/a/8F7DUB5 Regards, Matt brush-bug.afdesign
  24. When scrolling up down, the grid scrolls too? See screenshots
  25. When you edit the gradient in a Gradient Overlay effect, and you turn the color of one side to 0% opacity and THEN try to change the color of that color, the color selector window immediately closes after a single click. It does make the change, however. You can also set the opacity to 1%, select your color and move it to 0% afterward. Why would you want to change the color when it's 0% opacity you ask? Because it still affects the transition and blending of the gradient from one side to the other.
