  1. Not having a digital version of the workbooks is really annoying. I'm from an older demographic (sad fact, but we do exist) so based on other comments I've read about the Workbooks, I would need to purchase a magnifyer to read the small text. For all those lucky young eyes out there, you too will one day reach this point! A hard cover tutorial book, like a hard cover recipe book is impossible to manage hands free on a flat surface without breaking the binding. Maybe Affinity could package a book holder with each workbook? Buying one is just an extra expense. I work 'on the road' and the last thing I want to tote around is a big heavy book, or three. Perhaps I should also mention limited desk space already taken up with two monitors. I suppose the problem is that Affinity knows a digital version will get shared around for free, but so what? Is providing the means for people to learn your products entirely about profit? You already supply free video tuts. Password protecting a digital file will inhibit most of that. Surely Affinity have access to coders or can factor one into the price to write a program which applies a unique password to each digital file sold? Yes, I know you have a repository of tool/function documents. These are great when you know the terminology or the name of the tool required for what you are seeking to achieve. Otherwise you don't find them. So, I'm not going to buy any of the books, and now I'm forced to watch endless video tuts with no transcripts which is equally annoying since I can read faster than someone can talk. When reading a transcript I can save many minutes by skipping over the introductory waffle to get to the meat of the tutorial. The ideal is to have both video AND transcript. Affinity - you have great products, but learning them is far too time-consuming. Please consider digital workbooks and text tutorials. I would happily pay.
  2. Having just purchased all 3 Workbooks I am wondering what plans there are to provide updates either in electronic or physical format especially so as the books have cost more than the apps?
  3. Request: EPUB versions of the workbooks. This will help keep us up to date when the software is updated, for those of us that bought the workbooks. Why it's important? Let's say a few years down the road you guys have updated all the software and added a lot more features; the workbooks won't cover these changes, but a EPUB or PDF adaptation could be updated and it could be provided to registered accounts that have bought the workbooks already. I also would like the ability to have the content on my computer or phone, rather than having to lug around workbooks. Shipping of the workbooks to people in different parts of the world can be limiting. An epub or .pdf version eliminates that barrier. Easier to update the books as needed. You save on printing & shipping costs. Less stuff to carry around. Environmentally friendly. Quicker access.
  4. Hi, I bought a bookshelf and was hoping anyone could give me the proper dimensions on the Affinity Workbooks, I know they’re relatively the same in size and I would love to make them the focal point of my shelf. thanks in advance!
  5. The Official Serif Affinity workbooks were advertised in a recent email. Buy the book at discount and get free t-shirt. I already had purchased the Designer workbook and thought it was a great way to learn. I took up the offer from Serif and bought the Photo workbook. I was expecting the sale to be getting rid of the old books on hand. If it was different it wouldn't be that much different. Amazingly enough, I didn't realize it was updated for 1.7. Is the Designer book updated for 1.7? Is there going to be a Publisher book soon?
  6. Hi, I bought the Designer Workbook some time ago and it was shipped to Brazil without any issues. Today I tried to buy the Photo Workbook and see if the Publisher Workbook was available, but I see that the country is not an option anymore. Do you intend to ship again to Brazil on the foreseeable future? Is there any other way I could order the Photo Workbook?
  7. Hello I ordered the workbooks few day ago and I only got email with the order info and text that said that they will email me back when the order be dispatched someone know how long that supposed to take until the dispatch my package?
  8. Suggestion: Make study guides to go with the work books and simple follow along videos on the basics skills. Like a school book where there are exercises at the end of each chapter to complete-such as - vocabulary-matching exercises; many short concept practices for the basics ; comprehension: -Show tell how you accomplished this in a written paragraph, a drawn diagram-etcetera. Easy level short follow along videos for the basic skills. These approaches could be helpful to some customers with learning, using, and practicing the basic skills so they can feel confident and good when employing these magnificent Affinity Designer/Publisher/Photo software programs.
  9. I know that being able to get digital copies of the Photo and Designer Workbooks is all the rage right now. Mostly as in rage at not being able to do it. However, I understand Serif's worry about the book being pirated and spread illegally after they put the time and effort in to it. That being said, they have also put a lot of time and effort into the software as well. So what if, along with brush packs and filters, we were able to purchase a license for the a digital copy of the workbooks but not in the traditional manner of thinking. What if it were built into the software so that it wasn't an easily pirateable format? Have a new window that is called "Tutorials" or "Workbooks" or something like that and that window houses each of the projects and instructions that are included in the workbook. We could also build community tutorials as well that could be added into the same window. Maybe have a "fleshing out" period for the community submitted ones, where others in the community or even Serif staff could be Beta testers for the tutorial, and if the merit is seen in the tutorial and it's not just a steaming pile.... then it gets added in as well. Then not only would those demanding digital versions of the workbook be happy, but then even more information could be had by all and it would make it that much easier for the program to spread to new users. Not to mention, if the book was built in to the software like that, then it could get incremental updates with the software as new features or functions become available What are your thoughts?
