  1. Hi, lets put the things this way: We create new folders (and additional, if needed) for every new customer. In these folders we put every vector, bitmap files we need for the current job. When we open the main file, all other used files from the subfolders are loaded into that file. So, could it be done the fonts, we put in the main folder, to be temporarily instaled and loaded while we work on our design?
  2. Hi, I use Affinity Photo iPad, how can get the "Luminance brush"?
  3. This post is designed to be an aid to knowing if you are using the latest version on your platform. The thread is now locked to if you "follow" it you will know then we release a new version on any platform. I will update/edit this post as new releases and betas are added. Product Name | Platform | Purchase Store | Version | Trial | Current Beta ====================|==================|=================|================|=============|============== Affinity Designer | Windows 7, 8, 10 | Affinity Store | | | Affinity Designer | Windows 10 | Microsoft Store | | (as above) | Affinity Designer | MacOS 10.7-10.14 | Mac App Store | 1.6.1 | n/a | Affinity Designer | MacOS 10.9-10.14 | Affinity Store | (PK) | | Affinity Designer | iOS 11,12 | iPad Store | 1.6.4 | not posible | no beta Affinity Photo | Windows 7, 8, 10 | Affinity Store | | | Affinity Photo | Windows 10 | Microsoft Store | | (as above) | Affinity Photo | MacOS 10.7-10.14 | Mac App Store | 1.6.7 | n/a | Affinity Photo | MacOS 10.9-10.14 | Affinity Store | (PK)| | Affinity Photo | iOS 11, 12 | iPad Store | 1.6.12 | not posible | no beta Affinity Publisher | Windows 7, 8, 10 | Affinity Store | n/a | n/a | Affinity Publisher | Windows 10 | Microsoft Store | n/a | n/a | Affinity Publisher | MacOS 10.7-10.14 | Mac App Store | n/a | n/a | Affinity Publisher | MacOS 10.9-10.14 | Affinity Store | n/a | n/a | Release notes Affinity Designer Windows 1.6.5 (previous 1.6.x releases: 1.6.4, 1.6.3, 1.6.2, 1.6.1, 1.6.0 ) Affinity Designer Mac OS 1.6.1 (& 1.6.5 PK) (previous 1.6.x releases: 1.6.0 ) Affinity Photo Windows 1.6.5 (previous 1.6.x releases: 1.6.4, 1.6.3, 1.6.2, 1.6.1, 1.6.0 ) Affinity Photo Mac OS 1.6.7 (& 1.6.11 PK) (previous 1.6.x releases: 1.6.6 ) Affinity Photo iOS 1.6.12, (inc 11, 10 & 9) (previous 1.6.x releases: 1.6.8, 1.6.7, 1.6.5, 1.6.4, 1.6.3, 1.6.2, 1.6.1 ) Affinity Designer iOS 1.6.4 & 3 (previous 1.6.x releases 1.6.2, 1.6.1, 1.6.0 ) Affinity Version Numbering Windows build numbers and Mac builds are independent. The third number increases each time a public release is made, so Windows and Mac builds have simply been released a different number of times (sometimes to fix OS specific problems) Affinity Designer Windows 1.6 has had 6 public versions 1.6.0, 1.6.1, 1.6.2, 1.6.3 (very briefly), 1.6.4 & 1.6.5 Affinity Designer Mac 1.6 has had 3 public versions 1.6.0, 1.6.1 (and 1.6.2 PK - 1.6.5 PK on the Affinity Store for corp/direct sales and redemption code customers) Affinity Photo Windows 1.6 has had 5 public versions 1.6.0, 1.6.1, 1.6.2, 1.6.3 (very briefly), 1.6.4 & 1.6.5 Affinity Photo Mac 1.6 has had 3 public versions 1.6.6, 1.6.7 (and 1.6.8 PK - 1.6.11 PK on the Affinity Store for corp/direct sales and redemption code customers) Affinity Designer for iPad has had 4 public releases 1.6.0, 1.6.1 1.6.2, 1.6.3 & 1.6.4, but is based on the latest released codebase (technically ahead of desktop 1.6 releases). Affinity Photo for iPad has had 10 public releases 1.6.1, 1.6.2, 1.6.3, 1.6.4, 1.6.5, 1.6.7, 1.6.8, 1.6.9, 1.6.10, 1.6.11 & 1.6.12 (similar codebase to 1.6.4 iPad Designer) [Please note that Microsoft Store presents the build number slightly differently so can also appear as a store update as 10605.123.0.0] Windows Photo 1.6.5 is approximately the same codebase as Mac Photo 1.6.7. They were released quite closely and share 97% the same features and shared fixes, and obviously each also has OS specific fixes. [see release notes section above] Windows Designer 1.6.5 is approximately the same codebase as Mac Designer 1.6.1. They were released quite closely and share 97% the same features and shared fixes, and obviously each also has OS specific fixes. [see release notes section above] So Windows and Mac version numbers differing simply means the number of versions released are different. Installation of Software and Updates Paid software downloaded from the Affinity Store requires a product key and email pair to use. New versions are notified within the application when it is first run and updates are done manually by installing the new version over the old. (Only the Mac versions from the Affinity Store needs manually uninstalling first, all other versions will install over the top of the old one) Software downloaded from the Mac App Store, Microsoft Store and iPad store do not require a key and are updated through the relevant store. This is not always simultaneous around the world and updates are often rolled progressively by the store out so if you cannot see an update once announced here, don't worry or make a support ticket, just check back as they will normally appear for all users within 24 hours of first release.
  4. I think that 25+ years of experience with DTP apps like PageMaker, FrameMaker, QuarkXPress, InDesign and DOA (Design Oriented Apps) like FreeHand, CorelDRAW, Illustrator, Xara, Photoshop, give me room to say my opinion about Publisher, Designer and Photo. And this is: Publisher should be free of DOA features. All these years I never ever used these kind of features in DTP apps. I always like everthing clean: DTP for finalizing/merging text with design and DOA for design. If you develop separate DOA you don’t need it’s tools in DTP app and vice versa. Quark needs it, but Publisher does not. Publisher file format should not be open in Designer or Photo. Could you open ID files in AI or PS? No? Why? Because it is not supposed to work that way. But opposite is quite OK. It must, which is normal. DTP features must be removed from DOA. Artboards are OK. But pages, text chain, character and paragraph styles... No. Local character and paragraph formating and text effects (warp text effects like in Photoshop?!) is OK. Text effects in PS instead in AI? Video editing in PS? Character and paragraph formating in AI and PS? Adobe totally lost it’s compass. Publisher and Designer. Only 2 apps instead of 3. Designer and Photo must be merged into one app because they share the same purpose, a lot of code and recently -- same bug fixes. It will be also a war against bloatware. As separate apps their instalation size is 500+ Mb and if they are merged I suppose it will be cca 300 Mb or less. Not to mention how much space they take on HD when installed. If you need ideas for another apps then you can make your own Math equation and Chemistry formulae editor(s) and a Music score app.
  5. The more I use this software the more I like it!! :D One silly thing - you can create multiple art boards but you can only print them one by one? The PDF workaround is ok but.... I can see how printing all art boards to one page would work for very small illustration comps but not for simply printing out A4 or letter size concepts to present.
  6. I need it, quick. Took about 15 minutes of research and couldnt find a download
  7. Affinity Designer and Photo for Windows do not currently include the ability to scan documents within applications. I understand scanning is an issue with Affinity Designer and Photo under Windows, as some scanner manufacturers only provide 32-bit, not 64-bit driver support. https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/32310-aquiring-photos-from-scanners/?p=156987 However, some scanner manufacturers do provide 64-bit scanner drivers. Until there is a solution within Affinity products to provide 32-bit scanner driver support (if such a solution will be developed)... PLEASE provide 64-bit scanner support. For several years now Windows operating systems have been primarily 64-bit, as 32-bit operating systems cannot address more than between 3.5Gb to 4Gb of RAM. Most systems (especially systems for graphic design and similar) come pre-installed with more then 4 Gb RAM, requiring a 64-bit OS. Though some/many scanner manufacturers are not keeping up with the need for 64-bit scanner drivers, the need is firmly established, and will only grow, and become a hard requirement for those purchasing scanners. If only 64-bit scanner driver support is incorporated into Affinity Designer and Photo, that would provide Affinity software users the ability to scan within the applications, with provided 64-bit drivers. With newer scanners, users have a strong argument for scanner manufacturers to provide 64-bit drivers. With new scanners, users can return their scanner in favor of scanners providing the needed 64-bit drivers. The problem is: Microsoft Windows does not include the ability to use both 32-bit and 64-bit drivers for both 32-bit and 64-bit applications (i.e. a level of abstraction in the scanner subsystem); All scanner manufacturers are not providing 64-bit Windows drivers; Affinity Windows applications do not provide any scanner driver support. Supporting 64-bit scanner drivers for Windows Affinity applications provides a solution for Affinity application users and shifts the problem/blame to Microsoft and scanner manufacturers.
  8. I am experiencing a lot of lag in both Designer and Photo. My main machine is running Windows 10 on an i7 3770K, 16GB of RAM and an AMD 390X OC with 8GB VRAM. When comparing things like rotate, curve adjustment, scaling, perspective filter, etc. with Photoshop or Illustrator, I noticed a huge CPU spike on affinity to 100% together with some lagging fragments (squares in the selection that arent updated yet to the new configuration) while photoshop and illustrator could pull it off with smoother framerates as well as less CPU usage. It's like my 390X isn't used a lot in Affinity. This is really breaks my workflow when I am working with multiple layers or bigger documents and I can't work precise anymore. I wonder if I am the only one that notices this? Is there something wrong with my pc build or software configuration or is this just how Affinity is supposed to be working?
  9. How can I view the invisibles within text? I'm sure it must be possible but how
  10. Dunno why you choose Bilinear as default interpolation method for image resampling, but it almost never produces good results on common full-colour images. There should be Bicubic, as it results in much better output for decreasing image size (which I suppose is the most used operation). Or at least provide an option in Preferences to choose as default. Anyway, great software, though with some imperfections.
  11. vertical text arrangement is a very important way for Asian languages
  12. Dear Affinity Team Is there any chance for Polish translation of your (our) excellent software? Sincerly yours Olaf from Warsaw, Poland
  13. Being able to move items from one canvas to another, without having to do copy/paste, would be AWESOME! I miss that feature that is available in PS.
  14. Duno if this has already been submitted. Would really be nice to have a popup palette at cursor position when pressing a hot key to be able to quickly change color, brush and brush parms like size and whatever. After using the program for now several days I find it quite fastidious to have to go in the tabs to change those settings. Previously I used Krita and found this feature very useful. Thanks
  15. Hello. I would love to see this feature in Designer: When printing or exporting - ability to set up N copies to print/export on a page. For example: I prepare a business card. I would like to print 15 business cards / A4 page. So I set up 5 rows and 3 columns, select whether business cards will resize, define gaps, cutting marks... I used Corel Draw years ago and it is a feature I LOVED. Very simple and automatic. When I change the design, it is so simply to print it again! With Designer, I must mess with artboards, multiple copies, arrange... And when I change anything, I must copy again... Thanks, Tomas
  16. would be great to get this option. My feeling is, that all the writing to the system disk slows down background system processes... regards
  17. Hi, in our company, we are two designers and use both Affinity Designer and Affinity Photo. I have created a couple of palettes and assets and I want to share and synchronize them between all four applications. I know it's possible to export a file and import it in another app. But if I add something to my assets or palettes, it would be nice to automatically update them in other apps as well :) Thanks.
  18. Hello Affinity team, to further customize Affinity Photo, it would be great if the users where able to create their own Studio panels and to populate it with functions from different Studio panels. for example; the user creates an empty custom studio panel where he add parts from the macro/library panel, one or two Styles and so on. greetings myclay
  19. I need the basic function just drag layer objects across the open tab files. And when hold the shift key and drag it, the layer objects will be paste in same position. Please consider.
  20. This is the sort of question to which I feel I ought to know the answer but... My monitor is an LG E2551, which is colour-profiled using an X-rite ColorMunki Display, permanently connected via USB, obviously, which monitors ambient light as well as requiring/requesting me to re-profile the colour output of said monitor once per month, which I do. So, I think the colours seen on screen should be "correct"? Using both AD and AP on Windows 10 I'm very uncertain about which colour profile I should choose in Edit>Preferences>Colour. Should I select for the 16-bit and 32-bit Colour Profiles the latest one created for the monitor, or should I simply use the defaults, or even, one of the several available created for my Epson Stylus Photo P50 printer? I'm simply attempting to be able to produce print-outs from both AD and AP that are as "close as possible" in colour to what I see on screen. Yes, I do understand the screen is RGB and any print-out is CMYK and hence "exact" colour matching is impossible, but I would like to get the two to be as close as possible! Many thanks for any advice offered. Jeff
  21. Hello, I would like to ask if it is foreseen to translate the Affinity Photo to other languages. I'm especially interested in Czech language. I have no trouble in using English at all but there are older generations of photographers that would love to have the Affinity translated. If there is no plan to do that, is there a simple way for me how can I do that? Thank you for your answer in advance. Jakub
  22. How are we going to get updates? I can't see any menu option, like "Check for updates".
  23. Hello, is it possible to let user change the global colors of the GUI in Affinity Photo and Designer (I'm under Windows)? Black (and very dark) colors are not always the best choice, and I personally hate those colors even when it has been introduced in Photoshop. I really would like to have to possibility to have a Dark and a Light GUI themes (using OS native theme for example). My eyes are getting too tired when using black colors. Regards
  24. I use Photoshop for illustration and sometimes Spine for animating my illustrations. I like to move over to Affinity. Spine is supporting different software with a script for exporting transparent PNGs from each layer. The script exports Photoshop layers as individual, cropped PNGs. It writes a JSON file that can be imported into Spine where the images will be displayed in the same positions and draw order using the name of the layers. If there was a script for Affinity I could finally move over from PS. I really like Affinity a lot better... ​So - is it possible making scripts for Affinity? ​(As I understand there is no such thing as exporting single layers from Affinity?)
