  1. I have created macros on one workstation. I then use the export button on the macro panel to individually export each macro. For some reason a file must be open to do so. Once exported I transfer the file to our internal server from which my colleague copies the file to his workstation. He opens a file and then clicks the import button on the macro panel and when he selects one and clicks to import, it crashes. Any ideas?
  2. I', currently using 1.7.1.404 in a trial of the software. Having used Photoshop in the past, I have a number of brush collections in abr format. If I import them into Designer, I get the message that the import has completed successfully, but no new category appears in the list. The brushes are nowhere to be found. Restarting Designer has no effect. I have successfully imported a brush collection in Affinity format, which appears at the end of the default list of brush categories.
  3. When importing brushes from Photoshop, dynamics can have a higher value than the GUI actually allows. In below image Scatter X / Y is on 570%, normally only 400% is possible through the UI. I actually would love when this setting has a slieder to 1000%, or there is a very high limit like 5000% on the textbox. This would help create more versatile brushes that come closer to what I already have in Photoshop.
  4. When I tried the beta, I was immediately sold. I was up and running from an RTF template in moment, all my styles importing. Now when I import, they styles don't come in. When I tried to do it in different ways, Publisher crashed on me. I'm going to give it one more try on the new 16 page project I'm doing, then going back to Adobe until I figure this out. Did something change in how things import or come in?
  5. I am having a problem with the latest version of Affinity Photo for Windows (1.7.1.404). Previously, when importing an image from the Stock image browser, the image loaded almost instantly. Now, the image takes roughly 2 minutes to load, if at all. Most of the time, it freezes Affinity Photo and I have to Ctrl+Alt+Delete and restart.
  6. Hi there, My question is simple: How to import my written content into Publisher? I write my content in Paper by Dropbox (similar to Google Docs). So in order to import that content into Publisher, can I: 1) Copy / paste content directly into a New Page? In this case, if the content needs more than 1 page (usually), the pages are multiplied automatically, as in Word? Also, when you copy/paste, the original format is honored, including URL links and images? 2) Exporting original content to PDF - then importing that PDF in Publisher? In this case, the original format, URL links and images are imported as appeared in the PDF? I just want to know what is the preferred way to import our content inside Publisher. Thanks in advance ...
  7. In pageplus I imported a table of contents it came in as a single text box but infinity each line comes in as a single line. Would be great if you could import it the same way as pageplus brings it in as a single text box. I guess is there a way to do change the import so the lines combine into one text box?
  8. Dear Affinity developers and users, As a professional writer/publisher I need a facility to easily import large amounts of text in text frames. And with automatic page / text frame generation dependent on the amount of text and default or imported font size. It is impractical to import all text into one frame and create pages manually, create text frames and link them all together to have text spread over the pages. Imagine a 500 plus illustrated novel. That's almost 100.000 words and numerous paragraphs that need manual di- text frame creation is availablestribution over the frames. Totally unworkable and that means that without such a facility Publisher is not an appropriate publishing solution for publishers. Of course this is different for illustrated works with little text, but a DTP solution is about publishing, not about page design alone. So how about this scenario: - text import is available - page creation is available - text frame creation is available - text frame connection is available Then, please just automate the lot in an auto page/text frame and text distribution feature allowing imports from Word, OpenOffice, plain text and Scrivener (this last one would be a nice extra). If there is some sort of scripting possible it could even be scripted. We need a proper and feasible workflow! Without this Publisher will not be workable for publishing of text books like novels, scripts, scientific work, etc. Hope to receive some response on this as I would hate to trash a nice software package days after it's release. Cheers, Anna A. Ros www.woordenstorm.nl
  9. Congrats to the 1.7 release! Upon pdf import the bounding boxes of text objects are not as neatly adjusted to the text field as they used to be in AD 1.6. As I remarked in the beta forum, I would really love for AD 1.7 to revert back to the behavior of 1.6, since excessively sized bounding boxes make alignment of text objects in 1.7 much more cumbersome. Alternatively, it might be a solution to have a shortcut to make bounding boxes fit tight to text objects? Thanks for considering this!
  10. Hello, I have upgraded to affinity photo and designer 1.7 from 1.6 and I am having a problem loading pdf files created via print "save as pdf" in 3 different web browsers, when opening it reads the fonts correctly but some of the text is over lapping in the text box and the only way to fix this is to copy the text in to notepad and the copy and paste back to the text box, this fixes the overlap. Has the new pdf import/load got some setting i am unaware of or is that a unknown fault with both programs. I can supply screen shots or files as required. Regards Chris
  11. Copying pdf vector data (macOS standard for inter-app vector graphics, in this case from Vectoraster) and then using it in Affinity Designer 1.6.1 to create "New from Clipboard" works fine. However, if you instead paste the same data into an existing open Affinity document the result is very strange with the graphics being upside down with the elements distributed incorrectly in the Y-axis.

  12. Hello, If I import brushes in Affinity photo, I get a message that they are imported, but I can find them nowhere. So I do it again. I get the message that my brushes are imported in Fur and hair 4. But I all 4 I can't find. Anybody an idea? I remember having this problem before in Affinity photo. But not in Affinity Designer.
  13. I recently downloaded a new font from Creative Market ( https://creativemarket.com/dedemulyadi/908638-Heritage-Font-Combinations ) but I am unsure of how to add it to Affinity Designer on my mac. I am new to Affinity and I am completely lost. Can anyone help or give any suggestions on importing new fonts? I love using Creative Market so I am hoping the programs are compatible.

    Import - file name

    Affinity for iPad question When an image is imported a minimum of metadata is available. Where do I find the actual photo file name - eg. _XP299876.RAF? It is easily found in LightRoom by taping the 'i' button.
  15. When I try to import photoshop, gbr and abr brushes, I see a message that says" brushes imported successfully" in/under ##### but I can't find them anywhere? Can anyone out there steer me to the correct Help topic outlining proper steps for importing abr or gbr brushes?
  16. I have SVG file that imported incorrectly in both Affinity Designer and Photo. 112.svg
  17. I have some photohsop styles I'd like to import into AP. One style at a time. I see where I can import a styles category, but I do not see where I can import one style. What am I missing? Thanks.
  18. I'm making the transition from Lightroom to Affinity and I'm seeing really bad lag when trying to import RAW images taken with my Fujifilm X-H1. Like the whole computer stops responding, the CPU maxes out, and at one point I had to force reboot because I couldn't even kill the photo editor process. This is on a 2016 MBP with 8gb of RAM that runs Adobe products fine. I've tried both Affinity's RAW engine as well as the Apple one (X-H1 isn't listed under Affinity's for support, but it is supported by the Apple engine). Yes, I understand trying to import 2 dozen 20mp RAW images was probably a bad idea. But even importing a single image is taking over 1 minute on a class 10 SDcard connected over TB3. That's bananas. I don't see a lot of other people complaining about this so I'm just curious if it is normal? I've had issues with Fuji's RAW format causing problems in the past. I tried converting the RAF format to DNG first and that was marginally faster, but still really slow. I know this is a $50 program. I'm trying to temper my expectations. This is slooooow, though. EDIT: further investigation shows speeds are about twice as fast when pulling RAF files from the internal SSD rather than a SDcard, so Class 10 be damned, that's part of the bottleneck. It took 40 seconds to import/develop one image with the CPU maxed out the whole time. Still, that's probably within usable specs.
  19. Importing a PDF or (the same file as) AI-File with some gradients bring a very disturbed result. Also the exported PDF looks like the preview on the screen. See attached screenshot. If I resave the .AI as EPS and import this to AP 1.7.0.293, the preview on the screen isnt very nice but close on the original - the exported PDF looks like it should. If someone of serif needs the .ai, please PM or answer on this thread.
  20. I am opening a color book cover pdf in Photo. All colors are there except one in the graphic on the front & back cover. On the spine the logo vanished completely How do I see the green color in the graphic? Thanks
  21. Hi. I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this, I apologise if it's not. I got Affinity Designer a few weeks ago, I used it to edit and make a few flags. Now when I open them, they are missing some core features. This flag is missing the Saint Patrick's cross, which is the red X, in the middle of the Union Jack, to the bottom right. It's like this in the UK flag, Australian flag, etc. It didn't use to do this, I'm not sure why now. They don't appear like this in the browser. Attached you can find, the UK flag, and the flag in the screenshot. Please can I have some help? Thank you. Flag_of_the_United_Kingdom (3).svg USERUK.svg
  22. Hi there! I am not british, but this does not look correct: Download the flag of United Kingdom from Wikipedia (Download: https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/a/ae/Flag_of_the_United_Kingdom.svg) into APh .123 or APh .284 (file -> place) and compare it with the same file displayed in any browser. Best, Volker
  23. I just purchased Affinity Photo with hopes that it would be compatible with Apples Continuity Camera. But with huge regrets it fails to support this import feature. I have high hopes that this is on Affinity's radar. Continuity Camera allows Mac users to take a picture or scan a document nearby with their iPhone or iPad and have it appear instantly on their Mac.
  24. Has anyone tried to use an eps vector file from shutterstock? The file size is ca. 8MB, so obviously it contains a lot of data. But when I open it with Affinity Designer, I only see a bitmap image of a very low resolution (something like 60 dpi). Shutterstock claims the file is a valid eps and opens correctly with Adobe or Corel. Looks like AD has some kind of problem with these files. Is this a known problem, or should we file a bug report somewhere?
  25. Hi, I could not find if this was covered yet here on the forums. I just exported a color palette in Designer (to iCloud drive) with many global colors that had custom names assigned (RAL palette). When I imported the palette as document palette back into another project the custom names on the global colors were all gone and reverted back to their default names. The standard colors and gradients all kept their names, just the global color names were gone. Please advise. Cheers, Marc
