  3. Please, you could add a hint/tooltip to the "+" button to see what it causes (that will add current/entered settings to My Presets). Of course it would be good for all other items as well. Thank you Edit:

  5. 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 | 1.9.1.971 | Affinity Photo | Windows 7, 8.1, 10 | 1.9.1.979 | Affinity Publisher | Windows 7, 8.1, 10 | 1.9.1.967 | 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 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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
  8. 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.
  9. 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
  10. Installed and removed this piece of c**p after 20 minutes. Could have been shorter if it was able to just change my brush in less then 5 minutes... Hope I can go back to previous version.
  11. 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.
  12. I am trying to make this layer consistent for all angles with the 3D layer effect. Notice the outer obtuse angles (right) go inward on a straight line, but the inner acute angles (left) are rounded. I want them to be straight lines as well. I have adjusted the layer effect in every way I can see and have made a custom profile but as far as I can tell the 3D effect does the same thing to any acute angles on a layer. Is there a way to make all angles go in at a straight line?

  19. The 1.9 upgrades look fantastic. Question. After registration you can download some of the free packs, like the snow in PHOTO. Where are they downloaded to? no path showing. Can you change the path? I don't have my affinity software on my C drive. Just the OS, so I would like to choose where they go and know where they are. Right now i can't even find them. Gary
  20. Good moring. Since version 1.9 I cannot export to .jpg formats anymore. Does anybody have the same experience?
  21. Hi all. When I updated designer from 1.8.5 to 19.0.932, after loading I see only startup screen with name and version of product. I updated intel drivers (620), .NET Framework is 4.8 version (latest), C++ redistibutable 2019. Windows 10 64bit. i5-7200 graphics 620 NVIDIA 940MX With version 1.8.5 I have no problems. I greet everyone.
  22. Hi from Austria I have the same problem with the focus merge function since updating to 1.9, like Freixas and Hank Schoch --> forum.affinity - All focus stacks are the same: the bottom fourth of the screen is black. Will our problem be solved soon? When? I bought the app on 08.08.2020 and I use Windows 10 Thanks a lot. Jolanta P.
  23. I have two objects in a document (below), a green rectangle and a pink ellipse. And I have a document palette. If I right-click on the pink ellipse and choose Add to Swatches > From Fill as Global, the color is added to the document palette. However, if I right-click on the green rectangle and choose Add to Swatches > From Fill as Global, the color is not added to the document palette. Why not? I can right-click on the green rectangle and choose Add to Swatches > From Fill, and it is added to the document palette. I can then right-click on that swatch and choose Make Global, and it becomes Global. Why can't I add it directly? (In case it matters, the two objects were created from Assets. The assets are also embedded in the document. I don't remember doing anything special or odd when creating the assets, but I don't really remember how I created them a few weeks ago.)

  24. I have just updated Affinity Photo to the latest version 1.9.0.932. Since the update when I export as JPG or TIFF it only displays save as Affinity File. However it does appear to save as the correct file.
  25. 'Export' from Photo - png and gifs are fine, but jpgs only want to 'save as' affinity files. Same problem with Designer.
