  1. Having a issue when dragging image to NEST or CLIP inside of box. Results in a non image, and what looks like a white mask rather than the image. Works a few times , then breaks. Video attached. Gary Designer_2023-06-20_14-23-39.mp4
  2. Same computer, single-machine. Photo installed as MSI, Publisher and Illustrator as MSIX. Latter two work as usual, former refuses to launch with this: The application is not restricted by Firewall or DNS filtering at the time of activation. Pressing the green button just makes the "Please try again in a moment" blink once.
  3. This was discussed in another related thread and tested by a number of users using the “unzip to desktop” unofficial install method for the MSIX package in order to negate sandbox. It was learned that there is a significant performance increase when using the same package un-sandboxed versus sandboxed. (i.e. sandboxed == slower) It seems to impact higher end hardware more, but it isn’t clear for sure without more machines being tested. I tested an AMD card in the other thread and it showed a hit, but that card is not that powerful compared to the others. (Feel free to add your own tests below with higher end AMD cards) These tests are using the official MSIX installation vs MSI installations. 230127_2.0.4.1701_Sanded-vs-Unsanded-Benchmarks_ALL-MACHINES.zip I tested with 3 machines using 3x benchmarks for averaging each installation method: Machine 1 (Main): Microsoft Windows 10 Home (Build 19045) AMD Ryzen 7 5800X @ 3.8Ghz (-30 all core +200mhz PBO); Mobo: Asus X470 Prime Pro 32GB DDR4 (3600Mhz) EVGA NVIDIA GeForce GTX 3080 X3C Ultra 12GB Monitor 1&2 4K @ 150% Perf Variance: 16 ~ 20% Sanded: Unsanded: Machine 2 (Hub’s): Microsoft Windows 10 Home (Build 19044) AMD Ryzen 5 5600X 6 core @ 3.7Ghz Asus ROG Strix B450-F Gaming 16GB DDR4 (3200Mhz) Gigabyte RTX 3070 Gaming OC 8GB Rev 2.0 Monitor 1 1440p @ 225% Perf Variance: 15 ~ 21% Sanded: Unsanded: Machine 3 (Living Room): Microsoft Windows 10 Home (Build 19045) AMD Ryzen 7 3600 6-core @ 3.8Ghz (-30 all core +200mhz PBO) ASRock A520M-HDV 32GB DDR4 (3000Mhz) Asus TUF GTX 1660 TI Monitor 1 4K @ 225% Perf Variance: 12 ~ 14% Sanded: Unsanded:
  4. Hello, While in Designer, switching from one brush category to another is painfully slow. Gary
  5. I want to replace the MSIX installation with a classic MSI. I would like to keep the application settings after installing the MSI version of all three applications. How should I proceed? I assume I have to uninstall the MSIX version first. Then I install the MSI. How do I preserve the application settings?
  6. Following the thread seems to show a lot being fixed. So great to see. Looking forward to the final update. The one thing i dont' see mentioned is the Lagging problem and slow down that many are having including my self. Its a huge thread but nothing seems to be said about it. Can someone please shed some light on this speed issue being fixed. As it stands I cannot even use V2 of Designer for work as its to buggy and after a short time VERY slow. Thanks Gary
  7. @Patrick Connor Happy New Year everyone! Is there any update on the MSI installers? Its now 2 months since i have purchased the update and haven't used it yet. Please update Thank you Gary
  8. Yes, we will be providing MSI installers to customers who require them. This FAQ will be updated with links to MSI downloads when they become available. Yes. These are now available
  9. Even though I really like the Affinity suite of programs, I had been sticking with an old version of AutoDesk Sketchbook for doing my sketches, because it has nice perspective drawing guides, that allow me to A) Import a photo of a room or building, B) Insert perspective guides and align them with the actual lines in the photo, then C) Easily sketch out a project that I want to build, over that photo. Before V2 came out, I hadn't really been thinking of the Affinity programs as effective tools to do rough sketching. When Krita 5.x came out, I took a look and discovered that they had even better perspective guides than AutoDesk Sketchbook. And so, I began working on learning Krita, with the intention to use it for all sketching and painting work. I figured, I would reserve the Affinity programs for use when I needed a more "finished look." Of course, this meant that I would have to learn two very different user interfaces and "modus operandi." As I have said elsewhere, when the V2 versions of the Affinity programs came out, I immediately "upgraded," even though I knew they did not have perspective guides at all. I did this because I knew I would still want to use those programs for that "finished look," and I knew there would likely be at least three years worth of upgrades forthcoming. (All the videos and tutorials about "perspective guides" were merely about drawing some lines on a transparent-ish top layer and simply following them with your eye. Personally, I found that to be an absolutely lame workaround, and it really exposed which YouTubers were willing to repeat nonsense just to generate content.) And then I happened to notice someone mention this "helper utility" called, Lazy Nezumi Pro, in a YouTube video, almost as an aside. It promised to fill in all the blanks of the "missing" drawing guides in the Affinity programs, and more. I did some research, and saw that it didn't work with Affinity programs at first but, upon request, they adapted it to work with the V1 apps. Unfortunately, while doing said research I found a mention that Lazy Nezumi Pro will not work with programs that are "sandboxed," and my heart just sunk. Here, I had thought I had figured out a way to focus all of my energies on learning only one suite of programs. I wrote the makers of Lazy Nezumi Pro, and they tell me that, indeed, their app will not work with any programs that are "sandboxed," as the V2 programs are. So, I know this will not make the developers work any faster. But I do hope this helps impress upon the executives in the company that there is more to be gained from getting that .MSI installer out, than simply being able to launch Affinity Photo from within various photo managers. Who knows how many add-ons and/or plug-ins do not work simply because the Affinity programs are not installed like a regular program. Who knows how much additional functionality Affinity users are forced to give up (besides what comes in the "box"), and where their threshold will be for choosing to simply use a different program. As it is, I still have to use Krita for my original sketches. The more time I spend learning Krita, the less time I have to learn Affinity programs. And, the more likely I will be to just recommend Krita to someone, rather than Affinity, just because I know it better. Something tells me that is not the outcome you desire. Thank you for coming to my TED Talk. Edit: I was hoping I would have to add this but: Please only stick to the question at hand. I am not asking how to be a better artist. And I am certainly not asking how to be an artist exactly like you. And to be even more clear, "perspective guides" are not stabilizers.
  10. Newest Afinity Photo (1.10.4) Download won't extract to a msi but publisher and designer do. i have tried downloading from the site and on multiple machines any one else know how to get around this error.
  11. I have some questions about the program installers: 1. Are .msi installers provided by default for Affinity Education multi-seat licenses? Or would we need to extract the .msi files ourselves from the .exe (as I read elsewhere on this forum) 2. Are there msi switches/options to disable any kind of "send product use information" telemetry features? Actually, the second question is moot if there is no "send usage statistics" feature at all in the program. That just seems unlikely, pretty much every software has telemetry these days. Thanks
  12. Dear all, since version there is an issue with an extracted deployment msi of affinity publisher. Despite adding the Product Key and E-Mail Address in the extraction setup an successfully creation of an silent deployment package, the Software is asking for a product key after installing.
