  1. A few issues I have seen in this version and the previous: 1. Backspace doesn't backspace. It just returns to the previously used paragraph style. 2. Text seems to randomly resize itself. Example attached. When I finally resized the text on the left, the text on the right resized itself. Suggestions for improvements: 1. On the pages panel, maybe consider using the pages numbers of the book, and not the project, Eg : the document might say page11, but the book page numbering is only on page 5. 2. In the section manager, take away 'Section 1, Section 2,' etc. naming. It can be confusing when the book has chapters. 3. Please create an 'Indesign book' like workflow. It makes working on chapters MUCH easier.

  5. Hi, The new document window is too big. I would like to know how to resize it. Thank you
  6. Our developers have identified an issue where our apps can crash on startup when OpenCL Hardware Acceleration is Enabled and you're using an Intel Graphics Card. This issue is related to having traces of an old driver installed alongside a newer driver. Intel have suggested that users remove all traces of Intel Graphics Card drivers using Display Driver Uninstaller (DDU) and then reinstall the latest drivers using the Intel Driver & Support Assistant tool. For more information on how to use the Display Driver Uninstaller (DDU) tool, please read their tutorial but please use this tool at your own risk. Alternatively, you can turn off OpenCL Hardware Acceleration by following the steps described in [FAQ] How can I disable OpenCL compute acceleration on Windows? or can you use @v_kyr's Affinity OpenCL Disabler tool from here.
  7. Hello the most recent build is not printing Files correctly. The effects of layers seem to not stay clipped when printed. They are perfect on screen, but not while printing. the first file is the original file and how it should look, the other three are photos of how the the drop shadow is leaking out side the clipped area. For now i am printing from a JPG to fix it, but i should be able to print from the DESIGNER file without having this happen. Gary
  8. Greetings Affinity team. I have the latest update for Affinity Designer installed and I'm having some issues with it. First: Affinity has slow start-up times especially when the Asset Panel has Assets loaded or an Asset file open If I remove all Assets from the Asset panel start-up times are blazing fast. Second: If I organize my objects in an Asset File and export the Asset file to my hard drive, it fails to reimport and give an error. The export process also affects the size of the Asset File (eg: from 5GB to 200MB drop in size) which makes it impossible to reimport again. Third: If I close Affinity Designer sometimes when I relaunch Designer the Assets Panel will be empty and I have to reimport the Assets from my hard drive again. Hopefully this is a bug and not an isolated issue cos of my specs or something 🙂🙂
  9. It can be quite common to the get the error The application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect when trying to install our apps. This error is normally caused by a corrupted download and can be resolved by re-downloading the .exe again. If you get the issues again after re-downloading, please try downloading the .exe using a different browser. Links to our downloads can be found here: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/101074-faq-downloading-the-latest-and-previous-versions-of-affinity-apps/
  10. We don't maintain a list of compatible Graphics Cards but you can find the requirements for Hardware Acceleration on Windows here: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/126698-windows-hardware-acceleration-requirements/
  11. Due to performance related issues with AMD GPU drivers, our developers decided to disable Hardware Acceleration for AMD Radeon RX 5000 series and later cards in the 1.9.1 update. We've notified AMD of the issue and we're awaiting their response.
  12. We're aware of an issue where our apps can crash if you're using an Nvidia GPU and you have Capture One installed with Windows Explorer Integration enabled. We've reported the issue to Nvidia to be fixed but you can workaround this issue by: Changing the default Renderer in Preferences > Performance to a non Nvidia device or Disable Windows Explorer Integration in Capture One or rename the WIC64 folder in Capture One's installation folder in Program Files More information can be found here: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/134369-nvwgf2umxdll-crashes/&do=findComment&comment=751664
  13. Sorry if this is a repeat. I do not see the ability to export to an .afdesign file type from the ipad app. I only see .svg and when I export to .svg all of my layers and groupings turn into a jumbled mess on the desktop. I see that I am unable to access the designer files on my ipad directly is there a way to do this or is the only way to access those files is through saving files directly to icloud?
  14. I am experiencing an issue where I am unable to save new files to a specific drive on my system. This issue did not arise with 1.9.1 and was definitely present in 1.9.0. I'm unsure exactly when it started but it persists in 1.9.1 so I figured this was appropriate. Whenever I attempt to save a new file it results in the "Failed to save document: <Untitled>" "Save failed because access to the file was lost" dialogue. A file is subsequently created on the drive, but with size 0kb. I did find similar issues reported in the forum, but these all seemed to deal with external storage or network drives. In this case, the hard drive in question is neither. It is a standard internal hard drive Seagate ST250DM000-1BD141. Saving to any of the other five drives installed in my system ( one of which is an identical model ) works perfectly fine. I am able to open files which already exist on the drive in question. I am able to save to another drive, move the file to the offending drive, and subsequent saving works as expected. Only new files saved directly cause this issue. The issue is of course infinitely replicable as it happens even with a fresh install of Affinity Designer. I have attempted a full reinstall. Wiping preferences followed by a full reinstall. I've checked permissions to the drive in question multiple times. I monitored the windows event log for any hints. I attempted disabling all anti-virus software. I tried disabling my font manager. I even disabled google drive sync ( which I am not trying to save to ) just in case it was somehow interfering. It's possible, even likely, the issue is still unique to my system but I've run out of leads to chase. OS: Microsoft Windows 10 Pro N Version: 10.0.019041 Build 19041 Affinity Version: 1.9.1.979
  15. Bonjour, Quand j'enregistre mon travail le message "Échec de l'enregistrement, car le fichier n'a pas pu être crée." apparait. Le fichier est cependant crée dans le dossier ciblé mais il ne s'ouvre pas et affiche "Le type de fichier n'est pas pris en charge".
  16. The Affinity OpenCL Disabler is a little Windows based support tool, which will search and check for the availability of the PerformancePreferences.xml files (and inside those especially the existance and value setting of the <UseHardwareAcceleration> field) in Affinity for Windows release product installments. It's main purpose is to automatically disable the OpenCL hardware acceleration settings for the GPU in PerformancePreferences.xml files, which when as default enabled can lead on some Windows systems to crashes of Affinity application due to possible GPU driver incompatibilities. So if these settings are as default enabled, this tool will disable these settings for Affinity release programs. The tools main window looks like this ... ... and when started does a first automatic search after PerformancePreferences.xml files and their contents. It's console output box lists (outputs) what it processes and found out so far. The console also prints some hints for the next steps to take (pressing related image buttons) in order to disable related found OpenCL settings. Further during processing the top big image buttons change to indicate the found out states, their tooltips do change too dynamically and give here further related hints. - The tools top three big affinity image buttons do always show the found out state of the as installed found Affinity apps (Photo, Designer and Publisher). The tool actually searches only for Affinity Store, MS Store and Test releases of Affinity app versions, Affinity Beta versions are here excluded from the automatic search facility and thus not yet taken into account. No applications or PerformancePreferences.xml settings file found ... ... these image buttons are shown if no application related settings file are found, meaning there are probably no related Affinity apps installed on the Windows system. PerformancePreferences.xml settings file found but it has no <UseHardwareAcceleration> field entry ... ... clicking on one of the above shown "OpenCL No entry" image buttons will create a corresponding entry into the related PerformancePreferences.xml file, but will flag it to OpenCL disabled (False) and thus disable hardware acceleration. Hardware acceleration OpenCL related setting as enabled found ... ... clicking on one of the above shown "OpenCL enabled" image buttons will edit/change the corresponding PerformancePreferences.xml file entry to OpenCL disabled (False) and thus disable hardware acceleration. The state this program always aims to reach is to disable all the OpenCL hardware acceleration settings and thus it should finally ideally show these image buttons here ... ... if the obove shown images are shown, OpenCL is disabled for the Affinity Windows apps, which might hopefully help to prevent possible default app crashes then. NOTE: The tool comes along with some HTML based help contents (see the file in: ..\help\help_en.html) which you should read. From inside the running tool the help is accessable via the little [?] show help button. The HTML based help can be alternatively opened (the file help_en.html) from inside the supplied help directory with your local webbrowser. Installation: In order to use Affinity OpenCL Disabler you must have an actual installed Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5.2 (or a newer version) on your computer. To install Affinity OpenCL Disabler, just copy the contents of it's ZIP file into a directory of your choice. Where the AffinityOclChecker.exe file is the main Affinity OpenCL Disabler file, which must be executed in order to run the tool. In the following table, <somedir> refers to an installation directory of your choice. File to copy Target directory Contents of AffinityOclChecker.zip <somedir>/AffinityOclChecker/ To start the Affinity OpenCL Disabler you can just do a double click on it's EXE file, afterwards the Affinity OpenCL Disabler tool should appear and is ready to use. Here is the little AffinityOclChecker Windows based program, it's zipped (archived) thus remember that you have first to extract (unzip) it in order to use it: AffinityOclChecker.zip I hope that it might be useful for the one or other Affinity forum user, regards v_kyr!
  17. Hi, I'm macOs user and the performance of the application sometimes becomes slow, I have an Intel graphics card of 6000 and 8 gb of ram I would like that in the person tab you can include a raw editor easier to use and more complete with radial filter, I have to use adjustment layers to edit and is a very slow and annoying process, thank you

  21. At some point when adding a new guide, all the guides disappear. I tried to "Show Guides" (Ctrl+;) again, but no success. You can see the guides on the ruler area, but not on the work area. Had to close the application and open it again to make it work. Very annoying! I don't remember having this problem before last update. Running Affinity Designer version 1.9.0.932 Windows 10 Pro v.10.0.19042 Build 19042
  22. Hi, I'm getting confused how Affinity Photo handles "Color Formats" like RGB8, RGB16, RGB32. Question 1: How many colors are displayed for and RGB8 Color Format? To test how many colors are visible, i created a very simple test document: Create new 3840x2160 document with RGB8 and P3 profile Create a procedural text filter which creates the smoothest possible gradient from black to white. This will create steps of 1/3840 create a second procedural text filter which creates steps of 1 /256 (and is adjustable by the slides for later steps) Now the fun part begins. If you disable / enable the top layer you will see visible changes - meaning Photo will display a gradient with smaller steps than possible in 8 bit. Changing the blend mode of the top layer to "difference" will confirm both layers are different. This is a surprise for me. You may need a levels adjustment to emphasize the difference. Actually it seems like Photo is rendering a much higher color channel depth than 8 bit - even if the pixel layer is restricted to 8 bit. Is there a good explanation for this observation? My assumption is that RGB8 layers are strictly limited to 8 bit depth for each color channel, and only 256 different gray scales are possible. But the observations above prove it wrong.
  23. Can we please have the option of these buttons for PHOTO? They are in DESIGNER as in the picture attached. They are would be most useful in photo as well. Thank you Gary
  24. Hi. Disaster release 1.9 contains another bug: Select a layer (inside a group) in a layer stack, have an object in clipboard, click Insert at the top of the layer button, it gets highlighted, but on paste the object appears at the top of the layer stack. It worked flawlessly in all other previous releases I can think of since like version 1.5. Same goes when the same button is selected and one clicks New Layer icon.
  25. Good moring. Since version 1.9 I cannot export to .jpg formats anymore. Does anybody have the same experience?
