  1. Does anyone have the same issue in the Affinity Publisher v2? This is my second issues this week, stuck when opening the .afpub document. This document has more than 1000 pages, file size is less than 9MB. I waited for more than 30 minutes and the document was not open in the Affinity Publisher. I use Macbook Pro Retina mid-2012 dual VGA with 8GB RAM and macos Catalina. The afpub document are stored in a local drive (MacBook SSD). TIA Native Turquoise 2023.afpub
  2. Hi there, I'm not sure if this is a bug or perhaps I'm missing something but anyways. With an object or curve selected when I bring up the color wheel by clicking the fill or stroke buttons and then drag across the colors the color HEX field is changing in real-time to represent that color (See A image). Now I understand that if I want to apply that same color to something else I can simply copy the HEX code from that field, select a different object or curve bring bring up the color wheel again and paste the code within its HEX field. This works sort of (See B image) as the color becomes grey except the hue value is different from original - the value of 86 for some reason becomes 0 even though the HEX code is the same. Furthermore, after the code has been pasted the HEX field and HSL become stuck, when I drag my mouse across colors it only shows the last pasted code within the HEX field and corresponding HSL (See C image). Is this a bug or normal behavior and I'm missing something? As a final note the color wheel under the "Color" tab, its HEX field works no problem. Additionally, by dragging my mouse across the colors and then bringing back the fill/stroke wheel and doing the same unsticks the HEX field until I paste another code.
  3. Hello, I'm not sure if this is where I should be posting this, but here we go: A while back I started getting notifications telling me my version of Affinity Designer was out of date. I currently have version Upon trying to update, it encountered an error. If I try to uninstall, it says "This installation package could not be opened. Contact the application vendor to verify that this is a valid Windows Installer package". I went into my C: drive and deleted all signs of "Affinity". When I try to install Affinity, I get "The older version of Affinity Designer cannot be removed. Contact your technical support group". Presumably, Affinity is still installed. How do I uninstall it completely now?
  4. Hi there! I am on Mac Desktop, Affinity Publisher 1.7.3 and OS 10.14.6. Currently working on a book and the spell checker is playing up. The book is about 400 pages long. The other day I started a new spell check which worked fine until page 81. There is got stuck on a word (A name: Gatland). With the "spelling options" window open it will not let me Find next, Ignore or Learn. Define brings up a pop up window with info about the person. My only other option is to Change. A bit strange after 80 pages of no problems. If I give up and press Change, it changes it to Garland and moves to the next word. The next word is in Swedish and behaves in the same way. None of the necessary buttons work and, as the word is foreign it has no suggested replacements, which means Change does not work either. So I am stuck and can not continue the spell checking in any way. I have reinstalled the software from a new Download, Save As the file to a new document, viewed it in Designer persona, saved and gone back to Publisher. Selected other text in the document but apparently it always starts the spell check from the first error in the document irrelevant to what is selected or where the cursor is. Right clicking on the word and selecting Learn does not help either. So there seems to be no way for me to move forward.
  5. First and foremost, Hello! Happy to be here with all of you, and I look forward to being part of this community! I know there are alot of installation posts on this forum, but I could not find an answer to my issue. I currently am running windows 64 bit, with all drivers, updates, and software up to date including direct x. When trying to install affinity photo my installation hangs up on the starting screen : I have tried restarting the program only to get the previous setup bug so I had to clean out windows temp and windows temp installer and try again. I also re downloaded the file and such. Can anyone help with ideas other then disabling antivirus (also already done)
