  1. I was having this discussion with Mike Wenzloff in a Quark forum yesterday which was a great help to where I may go with this workflow. I wanted to ask the same question here to see if there is any serious pitfall I am not seeing among other Affinity users. I work for a company that does a lot of basic layouts; brochures, badges, mailers. I would like to buy Publisher for their machines so that I could just send them a Publisher file in Dropbox and they could change any text right from the program. They currently do this with MS Office files so it seems like moving to this workflow with our advertising would make as much sense. I'm on Mac they are on Windows and some also use iPads if Publisher comes to iPad at some point. Is anyone else doing something similar to this? Having that low price opens up workflows that I haven't tried before. I am also planning on incorporating other tools like Slack and Dropbox in this workflow.
  2. Could anyone let me know how I can transfer my Appstore version for Affinity Design to a Windows PC. I made the call to switch to PC from mac and I now need to transfer the license. Many thanks!
  3. ... feel wrong in my opinion. Because the coordinates of the image inside the picture frame are based on the position of the picture frame. Lets say the picture frame is placed at x 10,52 mm and y 17,38 mm. The coordinates are the same for the picture inside. For me I think it would be better if the coordinates for the image inside would start at x 0 and y 0. Maybe I am wrong, but I find it easier calculating the exact position of the image inside the picture frame starting at 0/0. Perhaps I have to get used to this approach in Publisher.
  4. Hello there! Yesterday I downloaded the long awaited 1.7 update for Affinity products. However I immediately encountered installation issues. I get the following error: I have tried all the tips mentioned in the sticky: and the general tips for this type of issues on: https://www.minitool.com/backup-tips/this-app-cannot-run-on-pc.html as well as: https://www.drivereasy.com/knowledge/this-app-cant-run-on-your-pc-solved/#m1 I've tried running in administrator mode, white listing and shutting off SmartScreen. So far none of the suggestions have helped. I'm running: Windows 10 Enterprise 1809 64 bit version (17763.503) Please help me install the new version. Best regards Andréas

  7. This might not, at first, seem to have much in relation to Affinity but there is a point to me asking the question (see below). I have a WD external USB drive for my backups but the software that came with the drive didn’t work very well (I couldn’t tell it exactly what to backup and the restore process took a very long time). I then looked at using the basic Windows backup function instead but I just can’t get it working the way I want it to (faffing around with libraries and it doesn’t seem to do anything most of the time). So I’m stuck with not having a reliable automatic backup. My general requirements are: * Windows-only – Windows 10-only if necessary; * Easy to select what to backup – e.g. click on a folder and press the “keep backups of everything in this folder” button; * East to select what not to backup – e.g. click on a sub-folder and press the “don’t bother backing this sub-folder up” button; * Easy to restore previous version of file – e.g. browse to the backup I want and press the “restore this version” button; * Easy to set when to backup what – e.g. Backup <this> folder once a day at dinnertime, and <that> folder every hour; * Lets me set exactly which folders and files I want to backup, not just the ones it thinks I might need (very important as most of my stuff isn’t in the Documents folder); * Keeps multiple versions of each file, up to a limit which I can set individually by folder – e.g. keep the last <X> versions of the files in this folder; * Low system overhead – e.g. I don’t want my system slowing down noticeably while the backup is happening; * Low cost – e.g. less than £50 and no subscription (like the Affinity apps). I have no current use for: Cloud storage; Encryption; Backup to multiple drives/RAID; Anti-ransomware; Email backup; Drive cloning; Multiple licences; Removable storage backups; Transfer between machines. Since the Affinity Apps – especially Publisher - can produce rather large files it would be great to be able to set different backup schedules for different folders so, for example, my important files are backed up often, but my experiments are only backed up every now and again. The Affinity apps use and produce large files so it would be nice to have something that can handle these without much fuss. I’ve noticed a few discussions about backups on this forum recently so I thought it might be useful to pick peoples’ brains and see what’s being used out there. So, does anyone have any recommendations? What are you using and why do you like it? What were you using and why did you switch to something else? I’m currently looking at EaseUS Todo Backup Free, which looks okay, but doesn’t seem – as far as I can see at the moment - to give me as much control as I want.
  8. Hello dear Forum, I tried to draw with my Wacom Intuos 4 in Affinity Designer unsing the pencil tool in the software. The problem is that it is always drawing a staight line, even if I draw curved lines, using my pencil from my Wacom tablet. If I draw with my mouse/cursor, everything works fine. I also have Affinity Photo. There is no problem neither with my tablet nor with my mouse. Everything works nicely. I think it must be a setting issue but I can't find out what I have to click on. Would be awesome to get some fast answers, so I can start working today
  9. Hello, I am wondering if there is any way to pan the canvas with my finger. I have a Microsoft Surface Pro 4, which has a touch screen. I am fluent in Phase One Capture One. Within Capture One you can pan the canvas with your finger. This is a quick and natural gesture, it does not matter what tool is selected and does not require any modification key presses. For clarification, the finger is for panning and the pen or mouse is used for brushing. Does Affinity Photo for Windows 10 offer this feature as I've explained? If not, is there any way I can set it up to do so, or any way I can offer this suggestion to the developers? Thanks.
  10. I'm trying to use Affinity Photo to make a curves adjustment layer for digital negatives that will be used in a traditional darkroom process. I need to be able to compensate for the response curves of the medium (e.g. photographic paper, cyanotype) I will be contact printing the negative to. I can calculate the curve but I can't find a way of telling Affinity Photo to make an adjustment curve where input value 5 maps to output value 20, input value 16 maps to output 32, etc. as is possible in Photoshop. I'd be happy to have a way to create a preset in the text file or something if that is possible as the curve would be the same for all images made into negatives and darkroom printed to the same medium. Any ideas? Martin
  11. Hello, I just bought my first brush pack in the Affinity store. I could easily install them in Affinity Designer, but it doesn't work in Affinity photo (desktop for Windows). When i import them, i have a message saying they've been added (as i did this multiple times, it say the name is *brush pack 2, brush pack 3* and so on), but they don't show in my brush panel. I tried to create a new category first but it didn't work either. I would like to find the location folder on Windows to uninstall all those packs that didn't work and find a way for it to work ! Thanks a lot in advance for your help, joujou_tdj

  16. Does Affinity Photo for iPad/iOS support Sony Pixel Shift ARQ files? Also, does Affinity Photo for Mac and Windows support Sony Pixel Shift ARQ files? If this Compatibility does not currently exist, will support be added in a future release for each platform? If so, is there a Date this ARQ functionality will be made available? Thanks for your time.
  17. I'm not sure how to do this but I am having difficulty removing a specific color on this image. I want to remove half of the water (blue) on this image. Or even change the color. What should I do? Thank you for the feedback.

    Error in documentation

    In the Help Page on Field Epressions, in the section on general arithmetic, that for input '/2', the result is 'divide by a half'! I am told that this error is present in both the Windows and the Mac versions, and in both 1.6 and 1.7. John

    Bug in memory management

    Bug "memory Management" of windows 10 when i exit from Affinity Photo.
  20. I have created a text frame and filled it. I now wish to duplicate that frame several times and position each frame accurately on the same page but can find nothing at the moment in the tutorials or forum which answers this. Also, very simple one, how do I select a frame to post it as an asset and if I do so does it also contain the text already within it when added?
  21. Hi, I came across this error so many times I lost count really. Its like this, whenever after a prolonged use I select any shape, those blue outlines around the shapes go invisible. Only after restarting AD does the problem solves. Does anybody else face it? I have AD installed in both my desktop and laptop and in both cases this problem doesn't seem to back off.
  22. Hey guys... I've been using AD a lot in the last year and I wanted to share with you some of the results. As you can see in these images, my main project consists of creating Windows 10 Themes, which is basically UI design... and in this department, AD has no actual competition on Windows (Adobe XD is far too featureless for what I need and PS is a nightmare to use for UI design). While working with tons of artboards and a lot of exports, this is where AD shines, as the Export Persona makes my life a whole lot easier. But at the same time, I found some flaws in AD, which is not a bad thing because I was able to do my part in the community and offer experiential feedback to help improve the app. Now, what can I say about my work... the theme above is called Simplify 10 Dark Colorful which is inspired partially by the MacOS UI, and bellow I have something for the Linux fans as well, a collection of 10 themes called Maverick 10 which is inspired by the Ubuntu design language. Over time I made many other themes and I also use AD for web design exclusively now and in time I hope to make it my main design tool. If you like my work, then head over to deviantArt and check out my entire gallery: deviantart.com/dpcdpc11 Thank you for making this amazing piece of software!
  23. Hello, in the AD document settings dialog, the CMYK profiles displayed correctly, but: In the printer dialog panel no CYMK driver profiles are displayed. ( only RGB printer profiles displayed) All CYMK Printer Profiles .icc are available in the Windows path c:\Windows\System32\spool\drivers\color. In AP I imported the icc profiles for CMYK printers, but they do not appear in the printer dialog anyway. With Greetings from Frankfurt am Main / Germany, Pinnochio
