  1. So I pretty much tried reinstalling affinity, clearing, reinstalling windows, updating windows, everything... Affinity photos and designer both give me this error when I try to save or export something. I'm on windows 10, 16G RAM, 500G SSD (33G free space), Intel 17-8550U CPU, and a GeForce graphics card
  2. I downloaded a newer update I was notified of and every time I tried, it fails. I uninstalled completely the older, WORKING, version of both Designer and Photo, and both keep failing install. I deleted the updated exe files, downloaded them again, still failing to install. I'm getting very frustrated because I just want to use my programs and design something already! Any help is very much appreciated! Thank you.
  3. We are pleased to announce an update for the Windows release of Affinity Photo, version 1.7.3 Changes in this build The changes in Affinity Photo for Windows 1.7.3 (over the last release Affinity Photo 1.7.2) are as follows: Fixes Fixed masks not working in a group of adjustments. Fixed Minimum Blur live filter constantly resetting Radius slider to zero when changing other values. Fixed failure to import .ABR brushes. Fixed PSD import crash (with embedded ICC profiles with non-ASCII names). Fixed Transform panel behaviour when transforming a sheared object with aspect lock. Fixed import of layered TIFF sporadically failing to load text layers. Fixed crash when install location contains a non-ASCII character. Fixed crash at startup (due to initialising crash reporter). Updated translations. Earlier changes and fixes in 1.7.x since 1.6 (including the new 1.7 features) are listed in some detail in this earlier update announcement. This thread is for commenting on this announcement. Please do not post bugs or problems that you find when using this version of the software in this thread, instead make a new thread in the Photo Bugs on Windows section and questions about usage go in the Desktop Questions forum. UPDATING TO THIS VERSION (Free for existing customers) The software version can be seen on the splash screen and the About dialog (in Help > About Affinity Photo). If you’ve purchased from the Affinity Store— each time you start the Affinity Store software it will check for updates and offer any available update. The latest update will install over the top of any earlier version, with no need to uninstall. You can download the latest installer by logging into the affinity store here and find the order in your account and use the "Download" button in there. Alternatively, this new release (and previous versions of Affinity Photo for Windows) can be downloaded from this link. (that installer is NOT for Windows Store purchases and needs a product key). If you’ve purchased from the Microsoft Store— Microsoft Store updates are done automatically by the operating system (each time you start the application). If this does not happen for you, open the Windows Store app and click the three dots in the top right corner of the app and then go to Downloads and Updates. Click Get Updates. This should hopefully force the update to show.
  4. Hi Folks, one question: i exported a 2 page testfile pdf with pulisher. Even though the 2 pages have the same the content elements/type (cause i copied them), in the exported pdf the right/second page has sharp text, the left page on the other hand is pixelated. What i am doing wrong:-)? Greetings from Germany Jo 20190925_Broschuere_148x148_2TEST.afpub 20190925_Broschuere_148x148_2TEST.pdf
  5. Hi, i'm seeing an issue in Photo Windows v1.7.3.481 where the execution of brush strokes stops working correctly. The behavior is that suddenly only the beginning and end of a brush stroke registers, causing a straight line between the points. I'm still trying to figure out a reliable reproduction path.

  6. You guys are selling this in your store. Bought it with you 50% off promotion, but its seriously slow. To the point its not worth using. Is it the brushes or Affinity Designer or Photo? Slow in both. All other brushes are fine. Not my computer at fault..Can't buy much faster than this. https://affinity.serif.com/en-us/store/product/daub-paintbox-brush-pack/ If you dont' have a fix, i wouldn't mind my money back as its pretty useless the way it is.

  7. Serif allow customers to test new builds of the software even before it is released to the public. These "beta" builds offer an opportunity to trial bug fixes, add support for new file formats and show off new features before they are launched. This post is designed to be an aid to knowing if you are trying the latest beta version of the Affinity software on your platform. Product Name | Platform | Beta Ver. | ====================|====================|===========| Affinity Designer | Windows 7, 8.1, 10 | 1.8.0.486 | Affinity Photo | Windows 7, 8.1, 10 | 1.8.0.486 | Affinity Publisher | Windows 7, 8.1, 10 | no beta | Please see the last post in this thread for links to posts announcing these beta builds. Those pinned posts have download links to the beta software. Windows Customer Betas require you to be an owner of the paid for version of the software to work. You either need to have the software installed on the same computer as the customer beta OR if you bought direct from the affinity.store website you can provide the product key to activate the beta. If you would like to try the Windows Customer Beta build look for the top (pinned) post in each of these forums: Affinity Designer beta for Windows Affinity Photo beta for Windows Before we launch Affinity Publisher, if you are interested in trying Publisher please add a download to your store account here . The pre-release download is free and available for anyone to see if this new application will be right for you. Also keep an eye on the top pinned thread in these beta forums, for news of fixes, new file formats and additional features and early access to new build download links. Affinity Publisher beta for Windows Windows build numbers and Mac builds are technically independent. The third number increases each time a public release is made, the last number is generated by a build server and so not directly related to each other. We will update/edit this post as new Windows Beta releases are added by the developers, so the version numbers should always be right. We will also post to the bottom of the thread so the forum sends a notification to anyone who wants one This thread is locked and will only be posted to by Serif Staff when the beta release versions are updated. Please follow this thread if you want to know about future version changes. If you think this post has got behind announcing the Windows beta updates and needs updating please PM me.

  10. I recently bought the Affinity Designer Work book. In the pages there are resources that I'm supposedly allowed to access and it is written such as: example.afdesign Does anyone know where I'm supposed to get access to this? I'm on windows also and I have the Windows beta version for Affinity. Would really appreciate it! Thanks!
  11. I bought all 3 Affinity Windows products directly from you, because I didn't know there was a Windows store option. Windows store updates are so much more convenient than a) open app, b) see 'update' message, c) click link and wait for download, d) launch downloaded file, e) click 'yes, update' button, e) click 'done' button. I have a bunch of Windows store apps, and they all get updated for me without fuss (just like my two Affinity iPad apps do). PLEASE let me switch licenses without buying all 3 apps again!
  12. Hi, Affinity Team. I have a suggestion for a program of Affinity series. A program of Animation frame by frame. I'd love to that idea. I hope you like! Yours sincerely, Lucas.
  13. Hi Serif, it looks like the issue I reported back in March was fixed just partially. The same issue occurs when trying to zoom when using the Mesh Warp Tool - see the screencast below. Thanks for a fix in advance.
  14. Hello. I searched for delayed typing and couldn't see any other postings in 3 pages. I'm just starting to learn Publisher and I noticed that when I type there is a large delay in the text coming out and I can't record with OBS to show. I have to type and wait for the letters to display for about 3 to 5 seconds after I type them. I only have been doing a few words at a time with the delay and it is severely slowing me down. My document isn't complicated and I only have a single image. I have to wait about five seconds for this to finish typing itself out: "This sentence takes about five seconds to fill in after I stop typing." I noticed that Publisher and Photo use a very large percent of CPU even when they were both minimized and hadn't been used in a few minutes, and Publisher was the same once when I had it open but wasn't interacting with it. I should have plenty of horsepower, and haven't installed any fonts yet. Thank you for your help. System: Dell XPS 15 9570, Windows 10 Pro v10.0.17134 Build 17134, Core i& 8750H, 32GB RAM
  15. Hi there, I am using the Affinity suite on Windows 10 and currently have to deal with an very annoying GUI issue. Since I use a 4k monitor, my windows uses a desktop scaling factor of 150%. Sadly, Affinity, doesn't seem to respect that entirely and displays tool buttons in a very tiny way that makes it nearly impossible for me to use them. Is there any scale setting that I could use to force scaling of this part of the UI here?

  17. With photo version 1.7.2 (Windows), dialog boxes for adjustment layers open in the lower right corner of the image area. However, if I attempt to move them, they snap to the very top of the screen. When I attempt to move them from this position, they immediately snap back to the top of the screen. However, if I move them to a separate monitor, they stay where I move them. The same is true for live filter dialogs.

  19. When I watch video training, I note that the dialogs on the Mac are different from those on Windows. Would it be possible to post a list of the differences and an explanation as to why? Thanks, -dmd-
  20. Hello! Found an unpleasant permanent bug. If you have several arbords (there can be a lot of them in a real project) So if you move (for example, by chance) the left upper artboard (apparently from which other artboards begin to receive coordinates), then everything breaks down, all artboards get fractional values of their coordinates. Now I know this pattern, and I struggle with it like this: 1. I create an empty artboard on the left somewhere, block it 2. All the other arbords I create right / below it affinity 1.7.0.367 win Watch the video artboard_fail.mp4

  22. 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 also use Phase One Capture One and Clip Studio Paint. Within both of these applications you can pan the canvas with your finger without needing to change tools. This is a quick and natural gesture, it does not matter what tool is selected and does not require any modification key presses, nor does it require I remove my pen away from its hover state. 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? Is this a feature being looked into for inclusion? Thanks.
  23. I'm on Affinity Photo v.1.7.1.404 with Windows 10.1093. For the last week or two, I've noticed that I can't open my older .afphoto files (not older than 1.6) anymore that have layers in them. I have stored most on an external hard drive. I've tested trying to copy to C: drive, but I get the same fault. On clicking open, the attached error messages flashes across the image, which I can see is loaded in the background. The dialogue closes and the file remains unopened. Please assist asap as I need access to my work.
  24. My main computer is a Windows 10nmachine attached to which I have a synology network attached storage. My main processing and document storage including backup is handled by the above. I also use an iPad Pro which is wonderful for when off site. Transferring files, especially large .afphoto type files is a tedious business. My current solution is to go via a small amount of ipad cloud and use the windows icloud app. But I also use Luma Fusion as a video editor on my iPad. That can open files from and save files to the windows/synology system over wifi. It is much cleaner and quicker. Could the same be done for Affinity Products? I understand the audioshare iPad app has a similar capability Regards Graham Rabbitts
  25. When I try to use Publisher I find a properties box gets stuck to the top left corner, obscuring the file menu option. I try to drag it using the mouse but it will not move. some times part of the box is off the top of the screen. Resizing Publisher or dragging Publisher to my other screen has no effect. How do I deal with this?
