  1. Hi to the community I am looking for the place on the Mac where the presets of my studios (Publisher, Designer, Photo) are stored. Also I wonder if the StudioLink at Publisher in Designer / Photo mode can use the saved studio presets for the separate apps, too? Is it possible to import / export the studio presets as you can do this with the shortcuts? I am a little confused when it comes to the shortcuts-export/import and StudioLink: I have created a set of shortcuts in Designer, Photo and Publisher. Are the StudioLink-Shortcuts of Designer and Photo stored within the Publisher-export-file? Can one save the context-bar as a file? As it seams the custom layout is not saved within the studio preset. It would be great if Serif would make all these presets somehow exportable so one can reuse it on all the computers one have / at the agency. It is to tricky to go the "Application Support" subfolder and grab these files (strangely there is no Folder for Designer there). Thank you for any suggestion.
  2. When using AD in Separated Mode, I can't get a previously saved document's window--that I've sized and positioned on the screen in the exact position I want it located relative to the Studio panels--to reopen in either the same position relative to the panels it was previously or at the same size that it was. Only the panels reappear in their former position (as I'm guessing their location information is attached to the application rather than a particular document). The first image below is what I want the screen setup to look like; the second shows what happens after quitting and reopening the document: How can I maintain the document window's identical position and size in the Separated view each time I reopen it?
  3. I am a digital comic illustrator and I’ve been wanting to switch to AP. I’ve owned the desktop Affinity Suite for a few years now, but have recently been playing around in the IOS version of AP. I’ve noticed that the brush engine has really improved, which I’m very happy to see! My only set backs with switching from Procreate to AP is the frequent crashing problems and the fact that the Context Toolbar can’t be hidden. This may not be as much of an issue for those editing and manipulating photos, but it really gets in the way when painting. I’m hitting it with my palm constantly. I’d like to request a hide/view option. I hope to be able to use AP on desktop and IPad together solely for my illustrations and comic art. I also hope to help other artists see how powerful this program can be! I’d also love to see a smoothing/streamline option for the paint brush tools. The rope and window stabilizers feel pretty clunky when inking and painting, though they definitely are helpful for some operations. @James Ritson
  4. Hello, Great work on the new Designer / Photo release @affinity! I have a bug in Designer stable and beta (1.7.1.404), when I try to open / activate the Brushes Panel the app crashes instantaneously. I had this problem earlier too, but was relieved when I saw it fixed in the previous release (1.7.0.367). Now it's back. I had the same problem with Photo too. Now Photo won't launch at all (since the Brush panel is open by default I think, so resetting the Studio does not help). Yes, I tried removing all third party brushes, and as I said previous release worked without any problems. Any help is appreciated. (How do I roll back my active Designer / Photo instance to an earlier version? Simply uninstall and reinstall using the previous installer?) Thanks!
  5. A MacOS Automator service plugin/workflow, programmed by yours truly: “Activate All Affinity Studio Panels” FAQ: What does it do? It contains a nifty AppleScript code that goes through the menu View > Studio, checks for all panels without a ✓ check mark and activates them all at their respective last position (if any). That's all. Why does it do that? Because otherwise you'd have to repeatedly open the menu and the submenu again and again, activate each panel one by one. Which is – pardon my French – a major p.i.t.a. As in, literally, a pain in the arm. Been there done that. How do I use it? Upon installation in ~/Library/Services (see included ReadMe) or in /Library/Services if you want to activate it for all users, you can run it from the Affinity Designer/Photo/Publisher menu > Services > Activate All Affinity Studio Panels. You can assign a custom keyboard shortcut via System Preferences > Keyboard > Shortcuts > Services. Heck, you can even disable it from there if it annoys you. (But why should it? Hey, it's a Good Thing™!) It will only do its Good Thing™ while one of your Affinity apps is running frontmost. Should you accidentally launch it while using another app, it will only inform you that it can't do anything. Can it do any harm? I don't think so. But if you're paranoid, open the *.workflow document with the Automator app and see for yourself. It's open source. What does it cost? It's free as in beer. That is… feel free to contact me if you'd like to buy me a beer. I won't say no! Where can I get it? loukash.com/download What's there? You'll be able to download a file named "Activate_All_Affinity_Studio_Panels_v1.0.zip". Inside the ZIP archive, there are two files: • Activate All Affinity Studio Panels ReadMe.pdf – which you should read, obviously… • Activate All Affinity Studio Panels.workflow That's all. My website runs on Wordpress, so it will automatically attempt to set a few cookies. Feel free to reject them. Enjoy!
  6. I am just a beginner here but one question please, I have the free studio assets when I purchased but they are very indistinct on a dark UI and if I change to light you cant see them at all. Is there a way to change the colour of the asset panel they are in so you can see them easily?
  7. I'm an AP newbie & Photoshop defector. I'm gradually learning how to set up AP and I've come across something that bugs me and I was wondering if there was a fix for this. I have set up an additional studio asset panel on the left of the screen but, if I click on a drop down menu to select a font, for example,, it is hidden behind the studio asset panel which is really infuriating. Does anyone know of a simple way to overcome this please? Thanks
  8. In Affinity Photo my studio windows and panels disappeared, and I already checked if I had hidden the studio, but I didn't. Then I tried to just reset the studio but no luck there either. Could someone please help me? Thanks in advance.
  9. Hi, I would like to be able to see intensity waveform, RGB parade, and Vectorscope chart simultaneously in my studio. This way, when I make an adjustment, I can see the impact on all three of them at the same time then having to toggle back and forth between each chart on scope panel.
  10. Hi everyone... I'm starting to use Affinity products more and more, and they are polished to the degree. But Studio part (right side) easily is turning into mess as you work on the project. Adobe solve this with small docking icons that work really well (attached). Maybe Affinity should do the same. It's just handled really well on Adobe side. Some solution like this should be implemented.
  11. Hello Affinity Designer users Recently, I saw that all studio things in Affinity Designer disappeared after I pressed some keys, and I don't know how to fix it. I've tried to search on this forum, and if I press CMD+SHIFT+H the right sidebar is shown again, but I don't have the toolbar and the upper side. Is there a way to reset the studio? Thanks in advance
  12. Hi, I am fairly new to Publisher and I'm creating a digital planner. I am using hyperlinks/anchors to link menu "buttons" to page content, but only the source links on my master pages display in the hyperlink studio, not their target anchors, despite being separately named elements. Surely both hyperlink sources and target anchors should be showing in the studio? I've selected show all types, show anchors etc. am I missing something here? Yes, I can click each source hyperlink and "go to target" but it would be easier to have targets listed in the studio too, especially for tasks like bulk-renaming. For example: If I want to rename the source hyperlink, the studio displays them in a list and i can click to rename each one quickly without leaving whatever page I am on in the document; but to rename the target anchors I have to click "go to target" for each source, which takes me to the page, right click on the anchor and then click "Interactive>anchor properties" to rename it. Seems unnecessary when there's a studio called Hyperlinks they could be appearing in?
  13. (I suspect this has been asked before but I can't find the topic after searching, so...) I've assigned shortcuts to various Panels: Layers, Swatches, etc. When I hit, for example F5, I want it to make the Swatches Panel active. However, if the panel is already open and not active then Affinity (Publisher) closes the panel and I need to hit F5 again to make it visible and active. My question: is there a way of assigning a keyboard shortcut that will toggle whether a panel is active without closing it? Thanks for any help!
  14. If the Studio Panel is docked, it lacks a button to close it quickly. The only way to close it is a long way through the menu View, Studio and finding the corresponding panel. The second option is to undock the panel - click on its Tab, and drag outside the panels, when the close button appears. The disadvantage of this procedure is that when the panel is displayed via the View menu, it is displayed again undocked, so it must return to its original position. The use of keyboard shortcuts for switching on/off individual panels is already difficult to remember due to their range. An easy and logical solution is the context menu - right-click on the panel Tab, which we want to close. Thank you
  15. Hi, I would like to see improvement in ease of use of Studio. After every feature I want to include the studio drop menu goes away. Why don't you let me choose multiple features and have, at the bottom, a button with 'ok', 'done' or something similar to announce when I am done with selection and drop menu can go now? As it is, it is very frustrating. Thank you.
  16. Would be great to have access to Icons8 library of icons right in Designer.
  17. Bonjour à tous, lorsqu'on modifie l'organisation des fenêtres pour regrouper la fenêtre caractère et paragraphe, utiliser le raccourci pour afficher la fenêtre caractère N'AFFICHE QUE la fenêtre caractère et pas la fenêtre paragraphe bien que les deux fenêtres soient rassemblées. (When modifying the window organization to group the character and paragraph window, use the shortcut to display the character window ONLY DISPLAYS the character window and not the paragraph window although both windows are combined. >> sorry for the poverty of my English) La fenêtre typographie mérite également de pouvoir être regroupée avec les fenêtre caractère et paragraphe. D'autre part, et sauf erreur de ma part, il semble impossible d'enregistrer une nouvelle configuration d'interface. Bon courage à tous.
  18. We are looking at ditching Adobe in favour of your awesome apps! We run a small design studio (3 Macs) and 3 designers. How many licenses total do we need for the suite (photo/designer and publisher). Thanks
  19. Serif Team! - Killing in in 2020! - Just a couple of ideas I had today and the context for them. I have been doing experiments comparing the pressure curves and response in Affinity vs that of Procreate. In my old workflow, i was doing most of my drawing and inking in Procreate, and moving my inks or pencils over to Affinity to complete any color or vector work that I was doing. I have come to enjoy the tight control I am able to achieve using Affinity Designer's brush settings and customization and want to start completing my entire workflow from start to finish in Affinity. That being said here are my ideas. 1. I enjoy being able to hide the studio, and I even like the tap patterns set up to operate it; but it seems sensitive. I often reveal it by accidental touch even though "touch for gestures only" is set to on. - Why not put another tap option there once the studio is hidden? - I envisioned a "lock" icon. So that I could hide the studio - then lock it. That way I can focus on drawing, and not be interrupted by the reappearing studio, and accidental touches. 2. The Palettes. Procreate really did a great job in the last update; allowing users to move the palette around on the canvas. - Why not do the same, using a similar interface method. - A handle at the top of the window, allowing for it to be moved around the spread. - Maybe even appearing on the screen as the studio is hidden? - So I cold minimize my distractions while I am changing colors etc. - I just want to paint, tap and select a new color, and paint some more. That's my two cents for the day! - Keep it up!!!!!! Enjoying the heck out of this app, and all your apps every single day! Cheers, Robert
  20. Hi It would be very useful to improve the UI of all Affinity Apps by giving us: open/close left studio panel and open/close right studio panel as a keyboard shortcut C
  21. Workspace customization is currently difficult and laborious. Feature request 1: Workspace saving | Now if I want to save workspaces, they must be copied from system files. Also i hate to lose my workspace setup after updating software. 1.5, 1.6 and now 1.7. Feature request 2: Workspace customization improvements | Now moving tool tabs and setting up custom workspace is very frustrating. Many times elements just can't snap into desired location or snapping area is very odd. Feature request 3: Workspace reset to saved workspace
  22. I can't figure out how to remove the docked state of the Studio space on the right, covers my work, I'm on a laptop. Can you remove the docked state? and move it where you want?
  23. As it is for color, it would be useful to have a quick live preview gradient settings in the studio
  24. How do you delete a table format? Using table formats in the Table Formats Studio tab, you can end up having loads of formats. So the need to delete obsolete ones arises. How do you delete table formats?
  25. Hello I have a problem with studio panels. I use three monitors on Windows 10. Every time I arrange the panels on the second monitor and restart Affinity Designer or Photo, they are unordered. Sometimes the panel is missing and sometimes they all move to the third or first monitor. I can't solve this problem. Is there any way that studio panels will always stay in one place? greetings Michael
