  1. All the new V2 apps are installed, however when using Publisher V2, Studiolink between Photo V2 and Designer V2 doesn't work. It always says the below (see screenshot attached). Any ideas what could be causing this?
  2. I was hoping that V2 would bring some of the features from Affinity Photo (e.g. links, layer states) over to Designer. As it stands, users are encouraged to use publisher for a Designer - Photo integration (or edit the file in the other program). To me it would be much more useful if I could use Affinity Photo through studiolink, the way Publisher does this. I mean, if I have paid for both Designer and Photo, it makes sense to me that I get both program's main persona at my fingertips in Designer. Again, the reason I am asking for this is so that I can setup my workspace in Publisher for publishing and presentation work, whereas I can use Designer for my actual Design work. For image manipulation I would of course use Photo. Both Publisher and Photo are in-line with this workflow, but Designer is dropping the ball here imo.
  3. No. To use StudioLink in Affinity Publisher V2 you will need to have Affinity Designer V2 and Photo V2 installed.
  4. 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.
  5. I have noticed that when in Publisher and switching to the designer persona that vector brushes do not operate as smoothly as they do in Designer proper. There is less smoothing and the temporary render updates quickly but looks very rough. It is just a quirk but may need investigating. Using Windows 10 on a Lenovo T430.
  6. I placed a vector AD file into my APub project and the Resource Manager is telling me the dpi is 79 even though the AD dpi setting is 300. How do I get APub to use 300 dpi for this file? Thank you!
  7. The vector and pixel personas are missing from Affinity Designer and Photo when Designer or Photo is activated as personas inside Publisher via studiolink. Where are they?
  8. How do you enable Studiolink in Affinity Photo and Affinity Designer? It's only enabled in Affinity Publisher?
  9. Hi I am using Publisher for the first time, and have tried to change persona . It comes up with the box, as shown in attachments. I have looked at the forum, and followed the steps shown about making sure that each Affinity programme is up-to-date. I then restarted my laptop, but it still comes up with the same box. Sorry, I'm not very tech savvy, but I hope that someone can help me. I do have all 3 of the Affinity products. Many thanks, Debbie
  10. Hi I Just updated Affinity Publisher to version 1.7.3 (Purchased@Affinity Store). Switching directly from Publisher to Affinity Photo is no longer possible, Studio Link informs me that Affinity Photo (purchased in AppStore) has to be updated, but there is no update in Appstore. My questions : Is it possible to update Affinity Photo purchased in AppStore manually, if yes, how? If no...not so good, as I have to wait for the automated AppStore update.
  11. In each of the two Affinity Publisher video tutorials demonstrating StudioLink interworking (Designer Persona: Vector Brush and Pencil Tool & Photo Persona: Paint Brush Tool), at one point the presenter selects a brush from a set of brush categories: Q1: Are these brush categories included by default when Affinity Publisher is installed, automatically created when StudioLink becomes available for access to either or both of the personas, or what? Q2: What happens if in Preferences > Miscellaneous I click "Reset Brushes"? Is there any difference if StudioLink is available (IOW, if Designer and/or Photo are installed)? Is there any difference if "Reset Brushes" is ticked using the Control key factory reset instead of the preference? Q3: Are these brush categories the same as the defaults in the 1.7.x versions of Designer & Photo?
  12. Hi guys, with the StudioLink launched, it would be awesome if there was an Affinity DAM. Complete suite?
  13. I have licensed copies of Designer and Photo both bought through the Mac App Store. I bought Publisher from Affinity (not the App Store) and downloaded it this morning. Clicking on the Designer or Photo icons brings up StudioLink which tells me that neither Designer or Photos is installed. Both were running. This has to be an issue with how the three products are registered to me and I can't see a way to fix it. Any ideas?
  14. Hi! I have licenses for Designer, Photo and Publisher and really love the new StudioLink function you've added to Publisher. I understand that all your focus has been on finishing Publisher lately,. Now with Publisher released however, will you also update Designer and Photo with the StudioLink functionality? The reason I'm asking is that I do a lot of artwork with both pixel and vector graphics, and just using Pixel Persona in Designer isn't enough for what I need. I also use the Export Persona a lot since the way I work is to make all art for one project in the same document and and setup different export options for all slices and art boards in one go, to have everything organized and easy to tweak and re-export and so on. So the dilemma for me is that: To best edit my art including both pixel and vector graphics I need Publisher and its StudioLink functionality, which is more than awesome. (When opening in Publisher I of course choose not to convert artboards to spreads, since I want to keep the document as is). To export all slices with all their different settings I need the Export Persona however, which can only be found in Designer and Photo so far. I'd love to know if StudioLink is in the pipeline for Designer and Photo as well? If you don't have any plans for this, I'd like to add this as a feature request.
  15. Hi All, I am new to the affinity range (used the Serif DrawPlus, PhotoPlus and PagePlus for many years and love them), so please pardon silly questions. I have all 3 new affinity apps for Desktop. I want to make sure I understand the "StudioLink" feature correctly. If I am in Publisher for example, I can click on Designer icon on top left and use the functionality of Designer within Publisher, and "object1" drawn is within Publisher. No need to switch Apps, correct? If I create a object in Designer, then place (insert) this in Publisher as "Linked source" and want to make changes to that object2, where should I make that change? Should I open Designer, edit object2 and it will automatically refresh in Designer? Or would I edit object2 directly in Publisher and it will refresh in Publisher AND save changes to the original object2 in Designer document? Thanks in advance
  16. 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...
  17. 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.

  18. Hey guys - thank for inventing the StudionLink! It's so nice! In this regards I have a suggestion: The color palettes should be the same when using the StudioLink as in the stand-alone apps. Or better: An overall color synchronization for all three apps would be very usefull. Thank you and keep up the good work! Chris
  19. Hello, I have a pretty annoying problem with StudioLink... So I have the three Affinity apps on Windows (no Beta version, I bought all of these), but when I go into Publisher then I click on the Designer Persona button in the top left corner, it displays that: I can't switch into the Designer Persona, just as if it wasn't on my PC... Note: My apps are up-to-date and I've already launched them at least once. They're in the default installation folder which is defined during their setup. Do you have any clue? Thank you!
  20. Hi! Contemplating Affinity Publisher. I'm wondering if StudioLink will work between apps like Photo and Designer if bought from different stores like the Affinity Store and Mac App Store. Will it work? Hoping for clarity. Thanks for you time!
  21. I was wondering if the "Studio Link" would work if one only have Designer + Photo (without publisher) for example... I'm not sure it's the case. Thanks!
  22. I'm getting this pop up in Publisher saying Designer and Photo aren't installed for the link up. They are both installed and both are the 1.7 versions, not betas. What's the workaround for this?
