  1. Feature Request 1: Consider allowing all applications in the Affinity Suit to link documents like Affinity Publisher. Feature Request 2: If/when linking across all Affinity Applications is possible, consider allowing the user to select not only select a specific art board or the entire document but also any layer at any level in the layers hierarchy of a linked or embedded document. Feature Request 3: Similar to linking, consider allowing for application-level symbols. Currently, symbols only exist at the document level. Such a feature achieves the same ends in feature requests 1 and 2 on the same computer. — For example, if a company creates a logo that is to be up to date in any subsequent work such as app and website UI mockups in Affinity Designer, print-like publications in Affinity Publisher, and photos in the editing stage in Affinity Photo, it would be great if feature request 3 is implemented to allow for an application-level symbol to hold that logo so that any changes to it synchronize across all other Affinity documents containing this application-level symbol. Extending the example to feature requests 1 and 2, if the company hosts the file on a server from which their designers’ computers can access it, they could simply link to it instead of embed it so that changes to the master logo file occur in real time to all Affinity documents that link to it.
  2. Suppose I have 2 documents: document1 and document2: I place document1 into document2. As I place it, may I choose to link document1 into document2 instead of embed it (which occurs by default)? If so, may I edit document1 independent of document2 so that the changes may be observed in document2 in real time? (The same way they would if I were editing changes to an embedded copy of document1, but instead so that the changes are actually occurring to the real document1.) If so, I should be able to use document1 as a or multi-document or application level symbol from which I can link it into other documents so that if I make a change to document1, all documents containing it as a linked object will reflect the change (in real time as well). Is this currently possible?
  3. I deleted some of the linked photos in my APub doc from the Finder. When I tried opening the file clicking on any of the three options causes the program to crash. I am not sure if this has to do with the new pre-flight tool? It eventually opened on the third or fourth try.
  4. Hi, When I add a link to an Affinity Photo file the files Size increases unexpectedly. However, this behavior has been described in other threads and might be due to a different understanding about the meaning of "linking". BTW I prefer the classic interpretation of linking which hold back no copy at all within the file... If I now use the same File multiple times the file size increases with every new instance. To me that is a bug because it would not make sense to hold back an individual copy for every instance of the same file. Probably my workflow is part of the Problem. I am ending up for a duplex A4 page with more than 3GB because I link 3x Affinity Photo Files each 3 times. The file contains RAW 24.5MP images developed by APhoto (~500MB per image) ... However, I came up with this workflow to utilize the full power of the great link between that applications to get maximum flexibility. I would really appreciate if instances of the same raw data would be allowed in AP. I got no bsp.File for you however, it should be easy to replicate the issue... Thank you for your help!
  5. Can you link Photo and Publisher Programs together, I have done it so if I open Publisher I can open open Photo, but can not seem to do it the other way round,
  6. I have problems with the size you get once you prepare a document with images. A ten-page document with images at 300dpi weighs over 180MB, yet the same document in InDesign weighs only 6MB. In both cases the images were linked, but AFPUB seems to include a copy inside the document as well (I'm not embedding). The big question, however, will AFPUB be useful for professional graphic designers to create magazines, catalogues, artbooks, etc., especially when using hi-res images inside (not lo-res web images)? If such is the case, here are a couple issues that need considering: 1. Linking images make the file too heavy. Consider the example I gave above, and then think of an 88 or more pages magazine/book, etc. 2. Not being able to import into a single document other documents prepared separately. Also, although I haven't figured it out yet, can you design a cover, a squarebound one, including the spine? Couldn't find any indication when creating a new document. Seems everythings is for what goes inside and not what covers it.
  7. Hey everyone! When opening Document, Resource Manager, selecting all files and setting them to linked, my document will still be at 109,3MB file size. In fact, before linking the unlinked images, the file had 108MB. So linking even increases file size by a small amount. The Resource Manager will show them as linked and Publisher will report errors when renaming a file. It just doesn't decrease file size. And even when Publisher cannot fint a file, it is still being displayed, instead of an error frame, which I would expect. Is this a known issue? It seems it shouldn't be since there is a tutorial on the website for this. I am using High Sierra. Best wishes, Shu
  8. I just found that "Replace Document" doesn't do what it is supposed to for this scenario: I have a large Designer layout (a poster) I have an embedded document, also created in Designer (a beanie) I have an updated version of said beanie on my disk Selecting the object and pressing "Replace Document" lets me choose the updated file, but it doesn't actually update inside of Designer. No biggie, but I consider this unintended bahaviour and hence a bug. WIN 10 1809, AD 1.6.5.123
  9. Pasting text of a large multi page article seems clumsy, with all that linking of text frames, In fact I cannot get to grips with it. Is there a way of adding pages with text frames and flowing the text automatically?
  10. Intro I found in some post on forum moderator opinion that OLE (Object Linking and Embedding or something like that) will be limited to only Affinity Publisher. Request I think great idea is get ability to make simultaneous edition in Affinity Designer and Affinity Photo. For example in Affinity Designer we create portfolio frame and in Affinity Photo we edit photograph in Liquify Persona. I understand programming question but from my perspective of usability of application working together by linking it's a big step. I think Affinity Published could take advantage too - in place duplication a lot of feature of other parts of suite it can be more oriented on hyphenation and typicall typography issues. Linking files in AD, AP i APu get advantage thinking more about on design in place witch application choose. At hypothetical scenario we think about interesting way to create portfolio using Liquify Twirl Tool and vector frame with ability see final effect in real time. It would be feature for next 2.x generation.
  11. Just starting with AD, and need to connect circles with lines, then repeat, to make a network image. I want to be able to move the connected circles and lines freely, as well as lock them, if that makes sense. What is the best/easiest way to do this? Any tutorial videos on this? Many thanks
  12. Hey guys, a sorely needed feature in AP and AD is PS style Layer Linking. Layer Linking allows me to keep my layers grouped in one logical way, while allowing my to move/adjust certain layer attributes ACROSS groups, so I don't have to ungroup and reselect layers in other groups. It's a HUGE workflow enhancer, and it would be GREATLY welcomed in my process (and I'm sure others') and quest to get off the Adobe teat... Please consider this addition in all your apps, not only AP. If you have any other questions as to why it's valuable ask away... :D Thanks again for all your hard work and making an incredible tool!
  13. Linking an image instead of embedding it, would be useful if you're working on different documents with the same file, i.e. a logo in a design phase. So if you change that logo it will be respected in every file it is linked. Besides that it doesn't increase your Designer file, that could be crucial if you're working with large files and make a lot of versions / copies of your Designer file. I think it's like the new version of the Photoshop Smartobjects (CC version). Would be great if this makes sense to you too and isn't too hard to implement. Thanks!
