  1. Framing budget: Max €3500, preferably under €2500. I’m planning on buying a new PC, and would like to take advantage of GPU acceleration in the Affinity suite, and also get great performance with DaVinci Resolve (free Windows version) for video editing. My current setup is so old (bought in February 2013, Intel Core i7-3770K CPU @ 3.50 GHz; Win 10 Pro; 16 GB RAM; GeForce GTX 660) that GPU acceleration isn’t available in the Affinity suite, and DaVinci Resolve runs painfully slow. I have my eyes on the new Acer ConnectD 300 (Intel Core i7-10700 CPU @ 2.9 GHz (turbo 4.8 GHz); Win 10 Pr
  2. I got problem with Affinity - all software (Photo / Designer / Publisher) won't open. Windows 10 / Surface Pro 7 I tryed disable CL, but can't find that XML (I'm newbie on Windows).
  3. Hi all, WIth the latest Beta I'm unable to load (drag and drop) any picture from Unsplash. Pexels and Pixabay works fine though. Cheers, Juan
  4. 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. Thi
  5. I recently purchased an AMD Radeon Pro w5500. This is from AMD's "workstation" line of cards (the blue ones). In theory, these GPUs are tweaked in such a way that they should be optimized for "workstation"-esque activities, whatever those are—rendering video, maybe? At any rate, I'm not a gamer, and I wanted to go with AMD, so I figured the Radeon Pro was the direction to go in. Fast forward a few months... For whatever reason(s), the GPU routinely crashes. Like, a lot. I've had to turn off gpu acceleration in Affinity settings. I'm about to ship the card back to AMD for a replacement
  6. Is anyone else having issues installing the latest versions (1.9.1) of Photo, Designer or Publisher on Windows10? Most recently, in the last three weeks or so, everytime I try to install program or app updates, Windows notifies me via a pop-up dialogue box, that "It's time to update your device". With a little research, it appears it is part of Microsoft's initiative of "S Mode", a stricter enforcement of security. S Mode apparently requires one (a) to use the Microsoft Store for installable items; and, (b) Limits Windows10 to the use of MS Edge (browser) and Bing Maps. In my case
  7. I am having an annoying issue on Windows 10. I use Wacom intuos M. I did not have this problem before Affinity 1.8.x So, when Windows Ink is disabled in Wacom Properties, no brush in pixel persona has pressure. They work like charm once I enable Windows Ink. Now in Designer persona, Windows Ink doesn't let me draw sharp nodes while using pen tool. They are all smooth node and I have to click Alt to convert each of them to sharp node while drawing. (Before 1.8.x, I only had to click/tap on a smooth node to turn it to a sharp node). The issue solves when Windows Ink is disabled. But t
  8. I did post this originally in the support forum, but I guess Bug Reporting is a better place for it given it's a major bug? It happens on all 3 programs, but I really need Publisher up and running for work so I reported it in Publisher bug sub-section, I hope that's OK? All 3 programs ran absolutely fine on 1.8, after upgrading to 1.9.0 all 3 programs crash as soon as the splash screen goes and it tries to open the main program window. Windows 10 is up-to-date. I'm using a Windows Surface Laptop 3 with the Ryzen 5 Windows Surface Edition. I ran the .NET Repair tool,
  9. Some are saying: "Outline view mode" is part of AD not APu. Correct. Some are saying: You can use "Outline view mode" with "Edit in Designer". Correct. But I liked the workflow to switch once to AD (and back) to change to "Outline view mode" and keeping that view in APu. It had some benefits for me and they (Serif) took it away from me. 😢 I had in 1.8x the impression that the wireframe mode was much faster in sense of rendering the content of the pages. Does anyone experienced a significant difference when changing View Quality / Retina Rendering in Preferences >> Performance?
  10. Hello everybody. I am not sure if this is a bug coming from Affinity Photo or Windows or if it is even a bug bu here is the deal: I know you can alter the hardness and size of the brush by holding CTRL + ALT + right click and if I perform the shortcut everything works as it should. However, if I want to perform the actions with my pen stylus instead nothing happens. I only get this annoying white ring as seen in the attached picture. My pen (Wacom Pro L) is set to perform right click and it works. Only Affinity Photo seems to not get the right click input from the stylus... Ca
  11. Hi all, I have the above version of Photo installed on my Windows 10 laptop but I still cannot open the CR3 file. Am I missing anything here? Cheers, Tung

  13. needed to scale an object consistently with the artboard but it just mess up the object Affinity_Designer_2020-12-22_12-57-07.mp4
  14. Hello, I was designing a banner about 6m long. Is it normal if the exported file in jpg and pdf is larger than 100MB? Because i've made a bigger banner design in PSD, but the exported file (jpg) size is only around 60MB. It makes my desktop run very slow when exporting the file and difficult to send the file to others too. Does everyone face the same thing or is it only me? or did I set up the document wrongly? I'm using Windows 10, my design contains the most images, I set the document with DPI: 72. Attached here the export setting that i used Thank you.
  15. Hello, I am facing a peculiar issue. I have two windows laptops on which Affinity photo is installed. But only on one of them I get this error when exporting an image after finishing the edit - If I turn the embed metadata option off, then it works. However, on the other laptop there is no such issue. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling affinity photo on the machine, but the issue persists. Incidentally, the machine with this issue is the faster of the two. How can I resolve this? Thanks in advance.
  16. Exporting a sequence of pages overwrites existing files without warning. When a user exports a sequence of pages there's currently no warning that it will overwrite files naming the sequence <filename>_{x}, where x is the page number. If files already exist with this filename they will be overwritten with no warning to the user. This is a problem as this could overwrite existing work/files. Proposed Solution: There should be some sort of preference to indicate whether a warning should be given on filename conflicts. ***NOTE: Also occurs in beta
  17. Hi I am having some issues with my laptop when applying masking to images. I cannot for some reason use the paintbrush to expose of hide areas on the mask. This function works perfectly well on my desktop. Any suggestions please? I have tried doing a repair function on the installation. This had no effect
  18. I have just installed the latest Customer Beta updates and found that the ascribed key combination to reset the page rotation (new feature?) doesn't work in Designer but DOES in Photo
  19. When I try to add the word österr. to the abbreviations in preferences it gets the first entry in the abbreviation list. I could be wrong of course, but I always thought that ä, ö, ü have to be sorted like ae, oe, ue. No complaint here, just wondering. Perhaps this is also affecting abbreviations starting with "special" characters in other languages? EDIT: Sorry, forgot to tell the OS. In my case Windows 10, but maybe this applies for Mac as well?
  20. I've been editing designs for a logo, cleaning up lines and colors for the last few days working 5+ hours a day. Been using mostly the paint brush and easer brush. Today on one layer (the same one I was working on yesterday) both brushes are not working correctly. They are both set at 100% opacity, flow, and hardness but with the paint brush it isn't painting a solid color. It's pixelated, and skips space and will not "color in" a line to make it darker. The eraser is doing the same thing. It will not erase fully. I added a pixel layer and both brushes work fine, exactly like they should, but
  21. Hi I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. I want to place an excel table into a document. I got to file / place, and I can select various option to look for in terms of what to place, jpg, png etc. But I can see an option for excel. Am I looking in the wrong place, where am I going wrong?
  22. In my case preflight warns about a missing "Lucida Grande". After embedding the PDF preflight is still reporting only 1 font missing. As soon as I edit the document, there are "Lucida Grande" and "HelveticaNeue-Bold" reported as missing.
  23. Hi everyone, I am new to Affinity Photo and photo editing in general and I have a crucial problem. The preview of my edits that AP shows does not fit the exported files. Just for reference my screen is colour calibrated using a SpyderX and is able to achieve 100% sRGB. Looking in Windows -> Settings -> System -> Display -> Advanced Display Settings -> Bit depth I see the value 8 bit. Now when I look at the edited photo in AP (before exporting) I can clearly see shades of gray on the top left lamp, but when I look at it through DigiKam's ShowPhoto (which I read it is colo
  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
  25. I created a text frame with a number bullet inside. Resizing the text frame from the center bottom handle works, while resizing the text frame from the center right handle reliably crashes. Attached a video and the .afpub file. crashing-textframe.mp4 crashing-textframe.afpub Edit: This is not font related. This bug is related to the fact that there is no text following the bullet.
