  1. Hej! I ordered to print a photobook a few weeks ago. I'm not professional designer, but I don't like options for print available, so I've decided to make this photobook with Publisher. When the photobook was printed it turned out that it was too dark. I can't say that the PDF that I've made was the same dark as printed, but still I've decided to make V2 of the photobook. I've never edited any pictures using Publisher, so according to youtube videos there's Photo persona for that. And tried to use auto-correction: So strange. Okay, Command+Z and let's try to use auto-color Well, it looks something is going wrong. My question is more about is in Publisher the way to edit photos slightly (brightness/contrast/colorbalance) before sending to print?
  2. I would like to request that the numeric keys, which are used to set the opacity of an object by default, become available for editing within the keyboard shortcuts section of the preferences. The reason for this is that these keys are very accessible, which is the reason I would like to use them to toggle between Photo's personas and edit inside of Photo/ Designer. Unfortunately though, some shortcuts will override the opacity shortcuts and others won't. This causes inconsistencies as discussed here:
  3. Within the Develop Persona, there are particularly little keyboard shortcuts that can be configured. While most of the action occurs within the studio panels, the toolbar items are the ones that need to be mapped to keyboard shortcuts the most. Nevertheless, there are no options for me to assign show highlight clipping (O in Camera Raw), blackpoint clipping (U in Camera Raw) or clipped tones, Single view, Split view or Mirror view, neither for Sync before/ after or swap. I am also missing a toggle to toggle between the original, non-modified version of the image and the developed image, because once I synced before/ after, I cannot go back to the non-modified image.
  4. I'm not sure if this issue has been previously addressed, but I am using the trial version of Affinity Photo to see if I should purchase it during y'all's Black Friday Sale. None of the other personas in Affinity Photo seem to be working. I see no visual changes to my image when entering the Liquify, Develop, or Tone Mapping Personas. Not really sure how this could be the case, but I'm not willing to buy the product during y'all's discounted sale if entire sections of the software are not working properly for me to test them. Also, if I purchase just Affinity Designer and Affinity Publisher, will the Studio Link feature still work between those respective applications, or do I have to own all three in order for Studio Link to work? Thank you in advance for any clarity you can bring to the situation. All the best!
  5. Affinity designer on iPad really misses the ability to export any slice/layer with multiple file formats. While this is possible on desktop, on iPad I have to select all the slices and to set the format every time I need to export in more than one file format. This is extremely frustrating when for example I have to provide multiple images in both PDF and JPEG. And since I use specifically the iPad version because of the ease with which I can illustrate and compose images using the Apple Pencil, the export persona really needs to be as performing as the desktop version.
  6. Hi When I drag only a little bit the brush in Develop Persona, it results in some random brush strokes. In the atteched screen I've pointed the place where I've clicked the mouse (starting point of the brush, blue dot) and the direction I've dragged in only a little bit. The problem is that the brush started dragging in the other place. The orange colour on the screen is the marked place that shouldn't be there.
  7. Just thought it'd be nice to have an eraser tool in the vector/curves persona. Being able to erase part of a vector shape is really nice feature when you don't want to be doing everything manually by using the pen tool. Thanks!
  8. Hi, here's a weird behaviour I see in Affinity Designer 1.10.0 on Mac 10.13.6. I'm changing some shortcut keys in preferences and switching from the Designer to the Pixel persona with the dropdown menu. The list of shortcut keys updates, but doesn't seem to reflect the tools I expect in the Pixel persona. I have to change the persona on the main toolbar and refresh the dropdown list to display the tools I expect. Hard to explain, so here's a gif. I would expect changing the persona in the preferences from this dropdown menu would show all the pixel tools and that changing the current persona from the main toolbar would have no effect on the preferences window. I'm assuming this is a bug? Or is this just weird UX? I believe this was also present in earlier versions. Not a critical bug for me, just wanted to call it out. Thanks!
  9. Hi, I often use the left double click for zoom to fit instead of Ctrl + 0, which works fine and it's very handy after zooming in and out, movening the image aroud for detail work to see finally the whole image (all while keeping the hand on the mouse). Unfortunately it works only within the Photo Persona, the Liquify Persona and Export Persona using the Hand Tool. Therefore my feature requests are: 1. Please add this feature as well for the Develop Persona and Tone Mapping Persona 2. Please add this feature as well after switching from other tools to the Hand Tool by using the SPACE key. Which would be then SPACE + left double click. I think this makes the handling more continuous within the app. Thank you very much!
  10. In previous Affinity versions persona options were seen at the top left of my document. In 1.9 they did not appear, and I cannot find any preference that turns them on or off. What am I missing? Thanks. ADDED LATER: I have now come to find that these personas are only in Designer and not in Publisher in which I created my doc. My question above was because *in Publisher* I switched to Designer and did not see the personas there. When I tried to open my Publisher doc in "native" Designer I got an error code t(attached). I then tried to copy/paste my work in the 15-page Publisher into a new "native" Designer doc of the same size. However, the Publisher layer names did not come over into Designer, only the objects without the names that I created in Publisher. Thus I must rename the Designer layers or remake the entire work in Designer. I understand why Affinity cannot do everything we users want, and this is not a complaint. It is, however, a suggestion that you make the above clear to he user in some fashion, i.e., that not all features in "native" Designer are available in the Designer available in Publisher. Thanks to all of you working to make Affinity programs so wonderful for all of us out here.
  11. Hello I created a page with some graühes in publisher and i wanted to move some single lines in one of the graphes ... so i changed to photo perosna and realized that affinity changes the quality of the graph. is that normal? or how can i avoid it? First pic is in publisher and second one when i switch to photo
  12. Hello Everyone Hello Team I gladly spent the last few days working on projects and realized how easy and fluid Affinity photo have become but ... yes because can't move forward without a request for improvement. I'd like to notify that the Develop Persona is something quite complicated from noobs perspective which should be revamped and made more intuitive for all levels of knowledges. What's there and the way it works is cool but more for Pro/Skilled people to work with (same case for the Tone mapping persona) to my defense on this, I used Luminar for like every projects I needed to finish which is actually a non-sens. Looking at Photoshop with their improvement made on Camera Raw, I believe this is a sort of path to bring on the Develop Persona of Affinity Photo. Making things easy to grad and to do without having to worry "what app will color grade with ease while making me save a big amount of time and money etc." I know it's possible and the Team behing the Photo app can make it happen with the ease of a click for our pleasure and joy. Something mid-ground between Camera Raw and Luminar will be welcomed. Hope I posted in the roght place without creating a duplica of request that aleready existed years/months ago. Blessings !
  13. Hi, I'm using 1.8.3. When I export my slices and select PNG, no matter if in Document Setup I unchecked the transparent background, I still get Transparent backgrounds both in the Sections preview panel, both as a result. I want my slices to have a white background.
  14. Good day! If you would like to copy a part of any vectorshape, now you have to (1) copy the path, (2) select 2 nodes seperately, (3) break them, (4) ungroup the object, (5) delete the part you don't need. (6) break and delete node, if open path is required OR (1) copy the path, (2) draw a path on top of it that includes the area you'd like to keep, (3) mark the two objects, (4) use intersect-tool, (5) break and delete node, if open path is required I would very much like to simply (1) SELECT the part of a curve I want and then press (2) COPY+PASTE to paste the selection. Thank you for considering!
  15. I have now by using 1.8.2 several programm crashes by most simple things. No reports are made, I have to close AP with ctrl+alt+del other way not possible. mouse or pen are active but no tool or other button is responding.
  16. That might sound like a bit of a strange thing to say - “Yeah, so it does what it’s supposed to, what's wrong with that?” - but when you switch Persona to either Designer or Photo you still get just the Publisher help and not the help for the persona you’re in. I’m not sure if this is a good thing or a bad thing but it doesn’t seem right to me somehow. For example, while in the Designer persona I might want to see how to use the Vector Brush Tool, which isn’t in Publisher, but I can only see the Publisher help so I can’t see the help for that tool. It’s not a massive problem as we also have the online help available from a browser but I thought I’d mention it. I didn’t think this was a bug as such so I didn’t post this in the Bugs forum.
  17. I am loving the power of the export persona in Designer and I want to know if there is a way to add/edit the export setting for a slice. The 1x, 2x and 3x are useful but I want to add a setting that exports the slice/document at 100dpi and 50% size for sending JPEG proofs to a client. Being able to add to this list would greatly speed up my workflow.
  18. Export Persona configure common path is not working. Running Designer app on Windows 10. I type or copy & paste the path into the "Path:" field, but when I export the slice/slices all it does is create folders for the given path locations and saves the JPG slices in the last designated folder location. Shouldn't the app be locating the existing directory path, NOT recreating folders (highlighted in red) for the path entered in the "Path:" field? I noticed in "Path:" field the colon after C (C:\...) does not show up in the path name (C\...) when typed or copy & pasted in. Could that have something to do with it? See attached screen shots. Best, Carl
  19. I bought Affinity, but I have a suggestion: Make it available on Persona Reveal Reveal (Develop) the possibility of saving the adjustments we made to the photos, as in Photoshop's CameraRaw (save file XMP). So, every time I open the same photo, I can review or modify the settings instead of having to start the adjustments from scratch as it is today. Here is the suggestion! Hugs,
  20. Hi Everyone, I use Affinity Designer daily, mostly on the side of the web development I do. I have been waiting for a feature since the dawn of time, I kind of gave up looking for information on it in 2017 but its now 2020! Can we please have a prototyping persona? Something similar to Adobe XD. I know the capable people at Serif can do this. You had a web plus at one point. I mean, you could argue that it should be a new application but you could just make it a persona. I create all my icons, illustrations, elements etc in affinity designer and have to copy them over in to XD. I dont want to use Adobe XD when there could be a first party solution. I read before on another thread that it was added as a disabled feature in 1.6 Beta. with 1.8 approaching. Can we expect to see it? Id take just basic clickable links and buttons to navigate for now. Not fussed about transitions. Maybe the ability to record when you click through the prototype in preview mode.
  21. Managing columns, rows, guides and grids is currently done via various manager dialogs and is a little bit ’old school’ considering how smoothly the rest of the software works. Would it be possible, or even make sense, to have a new persona where we can manage all of this kind of thing? I don’t know how this would work with Publisher and its master pages (e.g. different guides in different master pages) but I think it would make Designer easier to use. I’m imagining features such as being able to: * use power duplicate on guides; * group or mass-select guides to manipulate them together; * drag the grid itself to change its size and orientation; * save guides/layouts for import into multiple projects; ...and I’m sure other people have better ideas. I haven’t thought this through very much so there could be major problems with the idea but I wanted to throw it out into the community to see what people thought about it.
  22. How do I export with the Export persona? I choose a folder but it never gives me the option of ‘Open’ so I always have to cancel. I can’t even export manually now with this one file. When I go to the export dialogue box, my only option is to export the entire document, not just an Artboard. What am I missing? Or is it a bug with the program? Any help is appreciated. This has never worked (properly) for me since I got the program 6 months ago. Thanks. 5626AEB4-3701-424C-A02B-DF8C72E57294.MP4
  23. I would like to have Export Persona in Publisher as well.
  24. Some thoughts on Personas, Sudiolink, and Edit In… commands. It seems to me there is room for improvement in the approach to publisher’s implementation of personas and the studio link feature as well as the edit in photo and edit in designer menu items in both affinity publisher and affinity designer. I believe publisher’s personas need to be addressed. Instead of a designer icon persona, it would be a vector persona icon. Instead of an affinity photo icon for the persona, it ought to be something akin to designers pixel or raster persona. I think reserving the app icons exclusively for the studio link feature would be wise. It may be a good idea to have a separate studio link section on the tool bar, before the personas, as a shortcut to the edit in command that usually sends the file from one app to the other while closing it in the originating app. In addition, this leaves a possibility for publisher to develop or host new personas, such as a preflight persona, an extensive resource / font / hyperlink manager persona, an export persona. some of these may be shared across apps like the export persona, if one owns the hosting app, As publisher currently does with designer and photo. affinity might want to open up the persona as a plug-in platform of sorts, but much more powerful than anything offered in competing suites. Of course it would be beneficial to manage the personas through an app pref pane, to disable and enable what suits one’s workflow. An approach like this might yield a very flexible and customizable set of tools and modules that interact with each other, specifically tailored to an individual’s process. Just some ideas...
  25. Having been patiently waiting for Personas to be revealed in Publisher, I was eager to test it in today's Customer Release. I was surprised to find that I was faced with an invitation to buy StudioLink for £30++ No mention of this before! Am I missing something?? I bought Photo & Designer in their pre-Release days.
