  1. I've been using Publisher v1 for some years to produce a newsletter for a charity and all has been fine, with no need to upgrade to v2. However, today I tried to open a file (Windows 10, APub 1.10.6) and the app just froze, saying "loading 1 file" but with no apparent activity. After a while, it used 11% cpu, but there was no disk activity and the other apps running were also almost comatose! I tried other files and various suggestions from the FB Affinity Publisher group, plus my own ideas (repairing, uninstalling, reinstalling interspersed with reboots), but nothing I've done has made any difference. I've no objection to upgrading to v2, but I didn't see a need. However, one of the comments in FB was that the suite is available free to registered charities, so I looked but only saw a comment about that happening in the future. Please could you advise me on how to investigate this promptly, as I have a deadline to meet? Thanks, Sam
  2. In V1, all of my Fav Fonts were alphabetized, no matter when I added them or faved them. In V2, they are not. Is there a way that I can alphabetize them? I looked around the apps' interfaces and searched the forums first. Thanks.
  3. The betas for AD and AP open fine. Reset was already made. Crash report attached. 6bb8d8fe-dca9-4a10-b987-144938457a0e.dmp
  4. I purchased all 3 softwares in the microsoft store but can not find the download links to the given apps. The links in my purchases brings me to a whitescreen page. This are the links in from my orders: https://www.microsoft.com/is-is/store/p/affinity-designer/9nblggh35lrm/0010 https://www.microsoft.com/is-is/store/p/affinity-publisher/9nblggh35lzr/0010 https://www.microsoft.com/is-is/store/p/affinity-photo/9nblggh35lxn/0010 When i download the Designer/Photo/Publisher Software from here (e.g. https://store.serif.com/en-us/update/windows/publisher/1/) it requires a product key wich i can not receive, because its not in the purchase mails or in the order list from microsoft purchases and the links don't work.
  5. 1. Create a table. Default font for the table is Arial (on my machine). Do not write anything into the cells. 2. Select the whole table by using the row-/column-tabs or selecting all cells with the table tool. 3. Now pick another font for the table. Result: The font selection jumps back to Arial. Repeat steps 1 (but now write something into the first cell) to 3. Result: The font has changed for the text in the first cell and the font selection did not jump back to Arial. Write something into another cell. It is now Arial again. Tested this again with a completely resetted Affinity installation. Same result.
  6. Hi. I'm on Windows 10, using XP-Pen's Artist 12 tablet, in Affinity Designer 2.4 The tablet's roller/touch bar "zoom" function is dead in the Designer persona, but works in Pixel persona. The other roller/touch bar functions work, like brush size and scroll. It's just zoom that doesn't work. The zoom function also works in Affinity Photo 2.4. The "zoom" function does not work in Affinity Publisher in "Publisher persona" but it does work in "designer persona" and "pixel persona." This used to work in previous versions of Affinity Designer. I have tried updating the tablet drivers and restarting.
  7. Hallo! Ich arbeite gerade an einer Layout Datei in Affinity Publisher auf meinem Windows PC und habe folgendes Problem: Wenn ich meine Datei speichern möchte, bekomme ich die Fehlermeldung "(Dateipfad) Datei wurde nicht gefunden. Überprüfen Sie den Dateinamen und wiederholen Sie den Vorgang." Da ich das Dokument gerade erst erstellt habe und es zum ersten Mal speichern möchte verstehe ich nicht ganz was das Problem ist. Egal wie ich die Datei benenne oder ob ich sie "Unbenannt" lasse, es ändert nichts. Wäre dankbar um Hilfe!
  8. Hi, I get som strange colour behaviour when I copy an object with a colour layer to a new artboard; the colour layer stay on part of the artboard, depending on how I move the object. See enclosed image and screen recording (the Screen recording didn't properly record the sidebar; at the end I was hiding each layer). Is it a bug or do I do something wrong?

  9. Maybe this was reported before? Stumbled upon this recently, not a bug, but funny. Arrowheads behave funny, when the line has a small length. They just "walk" out of position. A creative way to do "other" arrowheads.
  10. 1. Create a table. 2. Select some cells and give them a fill through the context toolbar from Swatches. Result: Fine 3. Select some cells and give them a fill through the context toolbar from Swatches. 4. Switch to the Colour tab, pick Tint, enter a value or move the slider, hit Return / Enter. Result: No colour change.
  11. Check spelling while typing is enabled. If you move a text frame with misspelled words off the page, they disappear from the Preflight panel, although they are red underlined to indicate a misspelling.
  12. Even in v2.1 Wrap Group Tool still freaks out when wrapping imported svg. I've reported it already for previous version. After exporting it is even worse.
  13. Maybe I am overlooking something? Here is my recipe for correcting images in APu marked with a 'mismatched colour profile'. Starting point: An opened PDF, now in CMYK, having lots of embedded images with no colour profile. Current workflow: To get rid of the 'mismatched colour profile' errors, make the images linked, open and edit them in AP and finally save / export them. Wanted workflow: Put the embedded image into isolated layer mode and assign the correct colour profile in the Photo Persona. Easy and shorter! For those going to give me the advice to rasterise the images: NO, but thx anyway for your support. I have NO control over HOW the image gets rasterised. In my case rasterising the image leads to a recognizable loss of quality.
  14. I use a ANSI (qwerty) keyboard, but type in multiple languages, most of which are european, so I use the EURkey keyboard layout by Steffen Brüntjen to type the language specific letters occasionally needed. As an example to type the german Umlauts (ä,ü,ö) you would use the keybind "CTRL+ALT+A/U/O" or "AltGr + A/U/O". In Affinity Publisher 2, when typing in a Text Frame or Artistic Text Frame, the same keybinds with "CTRL+ALT" do not produce the desired characters, instead no input is read by the program. Using "AltGr" does produce the desired characters in the Text Frames. Interestingly if I go to Edit -> Preferences -> Auto-Correct and type in the "Replace" or "With" input fields, the program behaves as expected with both input methods, meaning that it can read the inputs normally. The problem can repeatedly be reproduced on new files. Technical details: Windows 10 Home 64 bit, Version 21H1 OS build 19043.1526 Ryzen 5 5600X processor 16 GB RAM Radeon RX 6800 XT Graphics card Issue persists with and without hardware acceleration enabled No relevant background software that may intercept the keystrokes other than the OS Recipe: Have ANSI (qwerty) Keyboard (Issue supposedly appears on other keyboards too) Have EURkey keyboard layout installed and selected Open Affinity Publisher 2 Create new Project Create a text or artistitc text frame Type in it Try to insert special characters with the CTRL+ALT+Character binding Unverified personal assumtions regarding the issue: The only other program where I have seen similar behavior in the past was in Joplin, a notetaking software. In there the issue existed because the keybindings were already preoccupied by the program, and had to be unbound in the settings. After unbinding it worked as intended. Since in Affinity Publisher 2 only one of the relevant keybindings seems to be preoccupied with another keybind ( CTRL+ALT+SHIFT+S for export), this solution does not work here. However my assumption is that the program somehow blocks the keybind because it reads some of the input. Since using AltGr keybinds works, my assumption is that the issue is the using of the CTRL key on the keyboard to switch into the mode in which you can see the distances of text fields to their surroundings (for lack of a more specific term). A "fix" could consist of either making it so that the keybinds work on EURKey again (evaluating how realistic that is is beyond my technical skills), or giving us the option to bind this control mode in the settings to some other key, which might also work. I'm of course willing to elaborate should further information help on my part. I know this is a bit of a nieche issue, but it seems like unwanted behavior and as such it should qualify as a bug. I asked about possible ways to fix it in the Support & Questions part of the forums and was advised to specify it as a bugreport. Thank you for your time.
  15. Hey everyone! #AffinityV2 #Windows I have a disturbing bug in a workflow senario that worked well in V1 but there is such a frustration in V2: While having a file at desktop or other folder, I want to quickly open it in an app, so I create some shortcuts on desktop for frequently used programs. When I drag a compatible file on a V1 app, it opens it immediately. While I already manage to create similar shortcuts for V2, unfortunately this is not working. How can someone achieve that same workflow? I am attaching a video capture on what I mean, for convenience reasons: affinity-apps_openwith01.mp4
  16. Hello, Why the selection of the design is bigger if I choose "Select All" and If I Ungroup is smaller? Thanks Camelia
  17. AP 1.10 on Windows 10: When painting on a single pixel layer the strokes are blended with the wrong gamma curve. Instead of using linear gamma it seams to be a 2.2 curve. First image: Simple strokes (no wet edges) on a red background. At the edges there is the typical halo that appears when the blend gamma is not linear. Second image: A pixel layer on on top of the red fill. This layer is set to a use a linear blend gamma (value 1). In this case the stroke edges are correct. Is there a way to let AP use a linear gamma for all paint strokes; even those on a single layer? Seems so, the gradient tool is also affected by this: Non linear blend: Linear blend (two layers - top one uses a gradient alpha mask and blend gamma 1) Blend-Gamma.afphoto
  18. As the new apps are shipped as .MSIX package for Windows and there is some confusion about the location and accessibility of the executable (.exe) - the 0KB exe files are in the specific user folder (as opposed to C:\Users\Default) . I am wondering if it can be used by the second user (non admin) on the same computer - could anyone please clarify?
  19. I have been experiencing an issue with AD when attempting to copy an object either with ctrl+c shortcut or through the context menu. When copying an object in AD, my desktop begins to flicker non stop which prevents me from clicking and keeping focus on anything. This is includes any application running and not just AD. The only way I am able to prevent it is to go to the login window and log back in. This behavior happens regardless of which app I have open and am actively focused in when AD is open. For instance, when the flickering is not occurring, and I am in my Mozilla browser and do a ctrl+c, the flickering begins. I do the login window/log in to reset the flickering. I close AD and do the same thing in Mozilla, and the copy works fine which then makes me believe it is an AD conflict with the OS or something. This behavior occurred in both Windows 10 and 11 since around March/June time (so whatever AD versions were active then) and on different computers. Current version is 1.10.5.
  20. We need to guess if it matches if it do not show any preview at the mouse point, The versions of windows , Affinity Publisher is showed in the picture, . among with image description of this issue.
  21. I added a page to my document and suddenly random pages have had the text color changed to a light grey. However, in the settings and font adjustments no change is actually noted. It's mostly on the right hand spreads Here it is on the left. There are spread that are completely unchanged as well. Creating a new text field seems to fix the problem, so has something to do with the master page and it's text box. spirit in the blade.afpub
  22. Just testing the SVG export and the files written to the disk using the export menu are written. When I change parameters and do another export, the prompt for "file exists - replace - yes/no" is answered with yes and the file is replaced. I can see it in the contents after my changes. But the file daten/time does not change. This is a very simple setting in the IO lib, as I know from my programmers days. And obviously it is done wrong. This applies also to the Publisher, cannot test with Photo. But they probably use the same export library functions.
  23. New issue with the latest version of deisgner. When you type out anything , then you want to duplicate it by pressing ALT and dragging the text object. The contents of the new duplicate do no show while dragging. They appear after stopping the drag. This never used to happen. Gary
  24. Affinity Photo ver., Dell Inspiron 5770, Windows 10 pro (x64) ver. 10.0.18363 I can no longer get the Macro or Library panels to show in any of the Panel sections. (View>Studio>Macro or >Library) 1. The entries on the Studio list show both Macro and Library with check marks. Keyboard macros Ctrl+Alt+L and Ctrl+Alt+M work as expected in selectiing and deselecting the Macro and Library panels 2. Removing and reselectng Library and/or Macro via View>Studio makes no difference other than adding or removing the check marks. Also View>Studio>Reset Studio does not change the situation. 3. Removing C:\Users\darel\AppData\Roaming\Affinity\Photo\1.0\user\macros.propcol and restarting Affinity Photo does not help. Macros.propcol does get recreated. 4. Adding a user-created macros file by dropping on the workspace does not result in an error but the panels are still not visible. The last time I used the Macro and Library panels was around mid February when they were used together in a floating window separate from the main panels sections. Any help would be appreciated.
