  1. Hey, If i want download Affinity it said to me Certification from dev cant verify bla bla bla
  2. Hello, I create a collection of vector picture that I would like to post in EPS, so that the images can be used under illustrator 10. The problem is that all my elements (texts, curves) having been deformed or with effects are not taken into consideration or badly. I put in attachments before after of an image and the export settings made. Do you know how to solve the problem ? Thanks
  3. Today I was really exited about Affinity Version 2, so I have bought the new full suite (3 software for Mac and 3 software for iPad Pro). Using affinity publisher version 2, I tried to open the file I created with affinity publisher version 1 and... an horrible surprise: I opened the file, scrolled same pages, and after 10-20 seconds the app freezes completely. I tried to force the app to quit, I tried a few more times to reopen the file, but affinity publisher version 2 always freezes.. I tried to restart my Mac, I tried to go to affinity publisher > preferences and strongly increase the memory the app can use on my Mac (closing every other app in background), but unfortunately publisher V2 keeps freezing after few seconds. So, I tried to reopen the document and, without scrolling any pages (in order to avoid that the app immediately freeze), I immediately tried to run a preflight check of the document.. the app freezes almost immediately without completing the preflight check. Please, can I send my file to affinity staff, in order to help me? In the meanwhile I can use affinity publisher version 1, but this is a temporary solution (since publisher 1 won't receive further updates in the future, and I don't like the idea of working with a software that will be outdated in te future), so it's crucial for me to understand the situation: - if it's a stability bug, there is no problem: I can wait for stability improvements (in the meantime I can keep using publisher v1) - if it's an hardware problem (see below the Mac I'm using) or a MacOS problem (see below the Mac I'm using), there is no problem: if with a newer and more powerful Mac the file works perfectly with affinity publisher version 2 (so that the problem is my Mac), I can wait for MacOS updates and in the following year I'm planning to buy a new Mac; - but.. it's crucial to me to understand if affinity publisher v2 no longer supports files like mine (file created with publisher V1, that works with publisher V1, but not with publisher V2), so that I should look for another type of software (I won't ask for a refund of the purchase, since I'll keep using affinity suite for other lighter purposes, but I really need to know if this is only a bug or I'm asking too much to this software) I hope somebody can help me (if I need to buy some sort of technical support, I don't mind, I just want to understand the situation and I hope to solve the problem, since I really LOVED affinity publisher V1). Thank you very much Andrea Hardware: - mackbook pro 13 inch, 2017 - intel core i7, - Intel Iris Plus Graphics 650 1536 MB - RAM 16 GB 2133 MHz LPDDR3 - 1TB OS: - Mac OS Ventura 13.0 Software: - Affinity Publisher 2.0.0 (I've bought the new software today) What happens when affinity publisher v2 freezes: - see the attached screenshot System monitor when affinity publisher v2 freezes: - CPU skyrockets and then system monitor tells me that affinity publisher version 2 is unresponsive: see the second attached screenshot Another attempt with Publisher for iPad I tried to open that file with affinity publisher for iPad, since my iPad is newer and more powerful than my Mac (I have an iPad Pro 12.9", 2021, M1, 2TB, iPadOS16). When I tried to open the file with affinity publisher for iPad I see a really strange massage: a popup tells me that affinity Publisher for iPad cannot open the file since it "includes functions of a newer version of affinity publisher"... but that file was created with affinity publisher version 1!). See the third attached screenshot.
  4. When taking pictures in IR, if the photographer doesn't set the white balance in camera and intends to change it via Affinity Photo 2, they come across the issue where the white balance tool in the Develop Persona of Affinity Photo 2 does not have enough range to correct colour casts on the whites in an image. (even when using the picker tool, which extends it slightly) I've attached an example shot I took with an 'ultrablue' filter, the second image corrected using another software, and the first using Affinity Photo 2. There is also the original .RAF raw. The 'correct' white balance that I'm looking for is one where the white of the walls on the parking lot buildings (and the stickers on the recycling containers on the bottom right) is as close as it can be to neutral (no tint). Using the picker tool on the white part of the wall, the tint gets pegged at 100%, meaning it does not have enough range to fully remove the colour cast. This is a huge issue, as the user cannot properly set the white balance in a lot of pictures. Moreover, even if the user does set the white balance in camera, and it is closer to the intended one but still needs adjustments, when enabling the white balance adjustment in the Develop Persona, it oftentimes gets worse due to the range being less than that of the camera's. My suggestion to this issue is: add a checkbox that would enable an extended range of values to be edited. (This would also help people who white balance old negatives.) DSCF6517.RAF
  5. Hello guys. When I use Inpainting Brush Tool it does literally nothing. Is it a bug or am I doing something wrong? I haven't changed anything in the tool's options. At least intentionally.
  6. Hi everyone! I'm having trouble quite frequently that I can't crop the canvas of my project. Here's to notice that the "show context toolbar" on the view menu is already on. And for the app itself, I did reset it. As the solution for some projects I've worked on, I decided to make a new project whereas in the previous project I moved to a new project. That's how I do crop it. But now it happens again to me. I appreciate every suggestion and advice. Thank you!
  7. I cannot login my account in your software over 3 days. What should I do? Please help. Details: Affinity Photo & Affinity Designer: Latest stable version. My operating system: Edition Windows 11 Pro Version 21H2 OS build 22000.527 Experience Windows Feature Experience Pack 1000.22000.527.0 Internet status: Very well. I bought them on your official website.
  8. Please help with the following problem. The full message I get is on the image below. I tried signing in a few times but it is always just loading and then I get this message. The same happens when I click on register.
  9. First of all, I purchased Affinity Photo and Affinity Designer from Microsoft Store, because at the time of purchase I thought that the website and the microsoft store versions are the same, with some exceptions regarding how the software is being updated (for the ones purchased from the microsoft store you don't have to do anything, they update seamless in the background, but with the website versions you have to update them manually). Ok, so starting from this information, I first bought Affinity Photo a while ago. All the things seemed alright, but I noticed that the thumbnails of affinity photo's files do not contain the icon of affinity photo, so it was a bit hard to distinguish the affinity files from the actual exported files, because they looked the same. I had to turn on file extension to know which is which. I thought it was by design and moved on with my work. After some time I decided to try Affinity Designer. So I went to their website and downloaded the free trial of the software. But this time, when I saved some illustrations as .afdesign I noticed that the thumbnails of the files had an extra icon showing the logo of Affinity Designer. This was something very useful as I can distinguish the .afdesigner files from the exported files. So I decided to also buy Affinity Designer, and I really wanted to buy it from the website so that I can have the program's icon on thumbnails but I already had Affinity Photo purchased from microsoft store. It will be weird to download one from store and the other from website. So please, can someone tell me and others who may come across this topic, why the Microsoft Store versions of Affinity software don't have their icons on the thumbnails?? I also attached two photos of what I'm trying to say. The thumbnail with the Affinity Designer logo appears only on the website version of the product. The thumbnail without the Affinity Designer logo results from the Microsoft Store version of the product.
  10. I loaded a pdf and try to improve the content for better readability. The text of the first FrameText field wraps perfectly around the image, no such wrapping in any other FrameText field. Also not of new ones generated. FYC: Because it's loaded from an existing pdf, there is of course no Master Page Where is that checker hidden I can't find to enable text wrapping?

  11. Hi everyone. For some reason, moving even a single artboard around with a couple of shapes and text layers in it is pretty slow and lags a lot. My system specs are the following: Intel Core i9-9900K, AMD RX 580 8GB, 32GB RAM, NVMe SSD 512GB, running macOS Catalina 10.15.7 and Affinity 1.10.1. Metal acceleration is fully supported and I’m getting good numbers in all kind of benchmarks and other apps, but artboards in Affinity Designer seem to be very slow for me. Tried all settings, Metal, OpenGL, OpenGL (Basic). Metal seems to be the fastest out of all (as it should be I suppose), but still not acceptably fast. It feels like 5-10 fps which is strange to me. Situation shown on video became even worse when moving group of artboards. I should mention that any other actions I do in Affinity Designer are remarkably fast and smooth (after many years of using Adobe apps). Color corrections, transforms, vector tools all of these are just flying. But artboards... Here’s a quick screen recording I made. You can also see detailed CPU and GPU load during performing this operation. I’m also attaching project file. Appreciate your thoughts and opinions. Artboards.mov Performance Analysis.afdesign
  12. Please I am from an Arab country most of my work is based on Arabic Fonts (Right to Left fonts) so I find a difficulty in Affinity Designer because it doesn't support tight to left fonts. I have to right it in Adobe illustrator export it as a png then import to to my Affinity Designer project as a png image. You see how it is difficult! My request is that you can fix that problem and support Arabic fonts or right to left fonts. Thank you in advance.
  13. Since two weeks, I was searching for many hours, why my Affinity Photo showed only the splash screen and then an empty, frozen window consuming all CPU power on one core. I checked .NET, changed my graphic card, set the color managment to default, disable OpenCL usage, did a Windows repair run, installed Affinity Photo from 1.8.5 to 1.10.1, renamed a Capture One DLL, removed unnecessary fonts, deleted the settings in the AppData/roaming directory and .... nothing solved the startup problem. When sorting the installed software on my Windows 10 system by time, I saw, that I have updated the software for my Huion Graphic tablet about two weeks ago, which I am using sucessfully with my Capture One 20. After deinstalling the software, Affinity Photo starts now normally again 😄 I hope, this will help and save time for other Affinity Photo users !!!! Regards, Erik
  14. So I am working in composing a photo with more than 30 layers, and I need MORE! My dedicated GPU memory usage sky rockets in matter of minutes after I start working on this photo and AP crashes. Does anyone have a solution how to minimize my GPU usage? I have: Radeon RX580 with 8GB AMD Ryzen 5 3600 6-Core Processor with 3.59 GHz 16GB RAM Thanks.
  15. Hello everyone, I have a serious problem with brushes: they are constantly shaking. I'm sure is not a problem of my pen or tablet, because is completely fine on other programs! What can I do?
  16. I started using Affinity recently and am generally pleased. But today my file suddenly got corrupted when trying to save - now it loads up to 90% and displays that file cannot be opened because it got corrupted. Can it be fixed? I don't want to lose all the layers from the edit. It even displays image I edited but does not let me to save a jpg (or do anything really). If you could help me and just provide finished jpg in highest quality I'd be pleased, because edit is finished. digital.afphoto
  17. I got problem with Affinity - all software (Photo / Designer / Publisher) won't open. Windows 10 / Surface Pro 7 I tryed disable CL, but can't find that XML (I'm newbie on Windows).
  18. i am attaching picture of some box in Affinity designer when i on snapping i see thin hairline between objects please help
  19. Hi, for a long time i dont understand why Affinity and also other programms act like this: Let's say you write something (e.g. in Affinity Publisher) and you export the document as a PDF. Now you open this PDF in Acrobat. You mark the text and copy it e.g. into Word. The problem: The text is not copied as a whole text, instead there is a new paragraph/line after every line of the PDF document. The same problem also appears when you print a PDF out of Word with "Microsoft Print to PDF". It does not appear when you save a document as a PDF out of word. I think this whole thing is a massive problem because it makes exchanging texts between different people much more difficult. Every text is completely torn apart if you want to implement it in a different layout. I'm often corresponding with local newspapers here in Germany and I think it produces much unnecessary effort for them that they always have to delete all the new paragraphs/lines and replace them with normal spaces, when they want to put my texts into their layouts. How can I fix this PDF export problem at least in Affinity Publisher? Thanks in advance! Bastian (sorry for grammar/spelling mistakes, my English is not the best)
  20. Since one of the most recent updates there is a lot of unnecessary low-res rendering going on when Affinity Designer vector objects are copied. Earlier, some of these issues could be fixed by pasting into Preview and copying from there but now there is no fix other than exporting to a bitmap. Please fix soon, this is incredibly annoying.
  21. I've just installed Affinity Photo 1.3.5 (from the App Store) and have a problem downloading the samples. The only ones that seems to work are The Visit & the Elephant King. The others acquire a small red X when I click on them. I'm running OS 10.9.5. It's not a huge problem per se but I would like to be reassured that I haven't downloaded a faulty version... I also note that the full screen toggle keyboard command is not Cmd Shift F as stated in the dropdown window. It is, in fact, Ctrl Cmd F. It remains to be seen if there are more malfunctions/inconsistencies. A cursory preliminary opening and working on local files seems to be OK. Any ideas & suggestions welcome.
  22. Hi there - I have just updated Photo from 1.8.6 to 1.9.1 and have lost all functionality - when in Develop mode none of the panels with adjusters will open. How can I revert to older version? I have iMac 27inch with latest OS. URGENT Regards
  23. So i tried to make a donut then convert it to curve with line subtracted in its center but i got a problem...i noticed it didn't subtracted correctly as you can see in the image What could cause that and how do i fix it (i tried moving the line and the subtrack it but without any luck.) Any suggestions to fix? Thanks!
  24. [English version below] Hallo zusammen, ich erstelle Pläne und Grafiken für digitale Präsentationen (Fachgebiet Architektur). Folgendes Problem: Ich stelle die gewünschten Farben in Affinity Designer mit dem HEX-Code ein. Wenn ich die Grafik exportiere, wird diese immer mit knalligeren Farben exportiert, als eigentlich eingestellt. Ich benötige PNG, JPEG und PDF-Formate. Mit allen Formaten, mit allen denkbaren Einstellungen habe ich bereits herumprobiert. Das Programm, das Dokument und im Export haben die gleichen RGB-Einstellungen und ICC-Profile. Eine zeitlang ist bei der Einstellung Neuberechnung: Lanczos 3 die gewünschte Farbe bei einem Export als PNG-Datei herausgekommen. Seltsamerweise funktioniert auch das nur ab und zu. Da ich mich mit Farbeinstellungen und ICC-Profilen nicht sonderlich auskenne, hoffe ich, dass mir hier jemand weiterhelfen kann! Anbei ein Screenshot aus Affinity Designer (nutze die Windows-Desktop-App) und ein Besipiel für die exportierte Grafik. Die gewünschten Farben waren: 000000 (schwarz), AED9E0 (hellblau) und D36135 (rot). Heraus kamen schwarz, AED9E2 und D76436. Ich würde mich freuen, wenn jemand mein Problem erkennt und mir weiterhelfen würde! Danke! Hello everyone, I am creating plans and graphics for digital presentations (architecture). The following problem occured: I set the desired colors in Affinity Designer with the HEX code. When I export the graphic, it is always exported with more gaudy colors than actually set. I need PNG, JPEG and PDF formats. With all formats, with all conceivable settings I have already tried around. The program, the document and in the export have the same RGB settings and ICC profiles. For a while, the setting Recalculate: Lanczos 3 brought out the desired color when exporting as a PNG file. Oddly enough, even that only works once in a while. Since I don't know much about color settings and ICC profiles, I hope someone here can help me out! Attached is a screenshot from Affinity Designer (using the Windows desktop app) and a sample of the exported graphic. The colors I wanted were: 000000 (black), AED9E0 (light blue) and D36135 (red). Out came black, AED9E2 and D76436. I would be happy if someone recognizes my problem and helps me! Thanks!
  25. I am running 1.9.1.979 on Windows 10. I am unable to paint black on any mask, adjustments or pixels; painting white is fine on a mask or an inverted mask. Painting black has no effect. mask_problem.afphoto
