  1. I keep accidentally rotating the entire workspace as I'm working in Affinity Designer. Not just the artboard, which I know I can specify rotation in the transform palette. In Adobe PS, you can press "esc" to undo an accidental rotation, but that doesn't work with AF, neither does command z. I keep manually and imperfectly rotating it back, but there's got to be a quicker way.
  2. When using "Photo - Launch registered application" function in Olympus Workspace on an E-P5 camera ORF raw file, Affinity Photo does not open it as a raw file, but immediately show it as a jpg format. This happens when no jpg format of the photo is available on the drive. Attached is a sample ORF raw file that opens in JPG format. There is no problem opening the ORF raw file any other way.

  3. Due to lack of native solution I present you Spaceman It allows you to backup and restore workspaces of Photo, Designer and Publisher. There's also sync option if you want to have same UI in Publisher personas and standalone applications. Spaceman is command line tool with very straightforward operation, backups are created in folder from where it is started. Feel free to suggest further improvements and give me a shot if you found bug! Edit: There was a problem with compiled .exe so now I'm sharing .bat file instead (and also for peace of mind of @CLC ) Spaceman.bat
  4. Hi all im wondering if you can make a media / workspace like in Lightroom in affinity Photo, if you can how do you do it ? im annoyed i have to load all the picture/photos in to infinity photo manualy and have to locate the Directory where my photos stored every time , can anyone help me with this ? Best and kindest Regards from Denmark.
  5. I am really liking publisher so far, and can imagine working with it professionally in the future. I am using indesign cs5.5 at the moment and one thing I would like to see in publisher which is in this program is collapsible panels. I like to have some panels open all the time, like character, paragraph, pages and color. This already fills my workspace pretty much, but I would like other options quickly available too, but not take up space all the time, f.i. the text frame option, the text styles and stroke options. Having some way to group a couple and minimize them would be very helpful.
  6. Please enable the ability to save custom workspaces in Photo, Designer, and Publisher. Often, the end user will need to create custom workspaces for various workflows. At present, none of the Affinity products allow for saving and recalling custom workspaces to apply to different workflow needs. While the ability exists to change the default workspace that loads each time you launch the application, as an end user we are "stuck" with only one option or reverting to factory defaults and starting over with a new desired layout. This is highly inefficient. I've discovered that the code has already been completed for this feature but for some reason has not been provided as an option to us. Please correct this blunder as soon as humanly possible. Custom workspaces are standard practice in virtually all professional workflows. Thank you kindly!
  7. Hi, Sometimes I'm assembling components on a page, but I'm working on a canvas that is sized towards the end result. Is there a way to keep objects dragged off-canvas visible or do I have to switch to a "canvas + artboard" model to keep track of those objects? If, for instance, I create an A4 landscape canvas and drag an object outside the canvas area it basically becomes invisible and can only retrieved by either block selecting the whole area and dragging it on the canvas again or highlighting the relevant layer and dragging it back onto the canvas. Is there a setting for the off-canvas border to remain behind objects dragged off-canvas? Attached: example circle partly vanishing when being off-canvas Cheers!
  8. How can I display thumbnails in the bottom of the works space so I do not have to open and close each file? Opening and closing each file takes way to much time when editing hundreds of images from a photo shoot. I do not see any indication of this ability in the help area. RJ
  9. Hi I have affinity publisher on w10 . When i i move a picture off the page onto the work space to re-use elsewhere it dissapears it only shows on a mouse over as a marque if i'm lucky your tutorials show images off page and certainly no problem in Page plus ! Any help ,ideas welcome Thanks
  10. Good afternoon. I have been using Affinity Publisher with the 1.7.3 update with no issues. I left a file open last night but windows decided to reboot my computer thus shutting everything down. When I opened Publisher today it recovered my work alright but for some reason the document keeps moving to the left and I can't stop it. It only does it when the cursor is over the workspace and stops when I move the cursor off the workspace. I have saved the work and shut down Publisher and re-opened Publisher but it makes no difference. It also does it if I open a new document in Publisher. I have just tried opening files in Photo 1.7.3 and also Designer 1.7.3 and the same thing happens. has anyone else come accross this issue or have any ideas how to stop it? I can't do anything with it. Just a thought...I updated Publisher and Photo a soon as the updates were available and everything worked OK. I did the Designer update yesterday. Many thanks in advance
  11. The current workspace is suitable for 1920x1080 resolution monitors. But, workspace icon and menu text size is too small on 4K monitors. CorelDraw allows users to change the size of icons and menu text in the workspace. Consider the monitor size and resolution so that you can set the menu text and tool icon size in the AP and AD workspaces. corel draw options dialogue box
  12. Workspace customization is currently difficult and laborious. Feature request 1: Workspace saving | Now if I want to save workspaces, they must be copied from system files. Also i hate to lose my workspace setup after updating software. 1.5, 1.6 and now 1.7. Feature request 2: Workspace customization improvements | Now moving tool tabs and setting up custom workspace is very frustrating. Many times elements just can't snap into desired location or snapping area is very odd. Feature request 3: Workspace reset to saved workspace
  13. Hello. Can we get saveable workspaces? I use a laptop + external monitor most of the time, but not always. I need a separate panel layout for each of these situations: Laptop: unified panel layout (uncheck "separated mode") Laptop + monitor: Separated mode: Most panels arranged on laptop + context bar and artboard on external monitor. If I could save an instance of each workspace I could easily switch between depending on the situation. Hopefully this is in the works as I think this would be a feature many professionals would utilise. Thanks
  14. Hi, I've just bought Affinity Photo. I hadn't execute it for the moment cause i want to know where is the best HDD to install it. I've 2 SSD (one for the C and the another for work) and 1 HDD (for minor work). So, does someone know what's the best solution ? I execute it on C and folders on the other SSD? All on the same SSD?
  15. Hi, I would like the background to my photos in Affinity to be white. I have tried changing the interface background grey level, but when I close and reopen the program it defaults back to grey. How do I get it to stay white?..........ps: seems to be fixed now for some reason. Diane
  16. I needed to go into separated mode today and was surprised to find that I couldn't get back to the normal view later. If I select merge under the window menu the checkmark remains on separated mode. Am I doing something wrong or is this a bug? I don't use separated mode enough to know if this behavior is unusual. Seems like it should just snap back into the view that is just windows in front of a blank background rather then seeing all my other app windows behind me.
  17. Hello all! First of all, I must state that I am a complete beginner regarding affinity Designer although I am used to AI, maybe that's where the problem lays. I am using AD as a trial for now (plan on buying) and on windows 10, with a graphic tablet. First thing I am wondering is that is there anyway to rotate the workspace (studio?) in order to draw more naturally. I saw people doing that with Designer on Ipad (and I can do that in PS and AI) and it would be ace if it could be done in the desktop version. Problem is, I can't find anything related (and so far simple searches return zilch) Second question so far would be to know if there's a way to quickly - or defaulting, painstakingly - copy effects from one layer to another (either by drag and drop with a modifier key or without, or simply by "copy and paste")... Again, I can't find anything. I guess I can group the different layers and apply the effects on the group, but I usually apply effects by copy and pasting (PS/AI) and then sometimes modify the effects individually. For example: drop shadows and the way they interact with each others. I probably don't type in the right words, but I hope my queries make sense... I will have no doubts plenty of other questions to ask as I go along Thanks!
  18. I'm not sure if this subject has been addressed before or not but I did a quick search and didn't find anything. is there a way for me to separate the boolean operations and the arrange tools from the toolbar and combine them into a floating window along with the transform window? it's just part of the workflow that that I'm used to using from AI.
  19. Is there a way to change the Workspace color profile to something other than the offensive dark grey it defaults too? I looked through all the menu options and didn't see anything. I'm hoping I missed it.
  20. Is it possible to dock studio panels in 2 columns on one side? I found the options to have studio panels on the left and right at the same time but I would prefer to have panels in two (or even three) columns on one side. I am currently doing lettering of the comic saga Nanits Chronicles in Affinity Designer and my "standard" working layout is to have script and references on the left side (25% of the 21:9 34' screen) and Designer on the right (75%). The artwork should be in the centre, so I have one long Layer panel + other panels on the right (see attached screenshot). The Layer panel is not docked, is actually floating over the workspace. Is there any chance to dock the two panel columns next to each other?
  21. This would be a great feature for Affinity Photo and set it apart from Photoshop in Windows... a feature where we can turn off the background in the interface, just having floating tool bars and image windows... would help to connect workspace with desktop... this was my favorite feature on Mac and would love to have it on the Windows version of Affinity Photo.
  22. What is really missing in Affinity Photo for a Pro user is the ability to create customized workspace. Especially now that many retouchers work on the set, this is very important. We go back and forth from our normal place with our usual monitor layout to many other places with many different monitor layouts. It's very annoying to rearrange every time all the panels to have our desired workspace. So, having the ability to save and recall custom workspaces would be a great feature. Professionals love to be fast and productive in the shortest time possible, so I think this is important for all the pros. Thanks again for your attention! Alex
  23. I'm pretty sure there are other requests for this, but being able to save window arrangements/layouts into custom workspaces is a pretty essential feature. I use Photoshop and Illustrator, but will sometimes use Affinity Designer and Photo for fun. My Illustrator is CS6, so I'll often use Designer to at least convert my AI vector to a more modern/stable copy or just design it in Designer if I don't need to use the Illustrator features I'm use to using. Having to rearrange my windows every time or make due with the default layout everytime I switch to an Affinity program is extremely cumbersome. On the whole, I love the programs Serif Labs have put out and think they're extremely functional and promising. It's fun and exciting to see how they're progressing and I hope they continue developing like they've been doing
  24. Hey there community and Affinity devs, some time ago I asked the developers via Facebook if there's an option to keep the adjustment presets like gradient maps, imported and saved LUT files, levels, curves – pretty much everything in the "Adjustment"-palette/tab that you may have generated and saved there over time. Back then (August 2015) you would need to save them separately, because you'd loose them with the next update – at least that's what happened to me twice – after that I was more cautious about those files. Anyway, I got a pretty helpful response: I was told there's a file called adjustments.propcol in the directory /Users/<USERNAME>/Library/Containers/com.seriflabs.affinityphoto/Data/Library/Application Support/user/ and it would contain all of my adjustments – and it's true! You can save that file and put it back there after each update to preserve your custom presets. Tough I guess it's been solved since a few updated ago because I haven't done it after a couple of times. Last year I purchased the Win-version of Affinity Photo as well and just now I'm starting to wonder: How to transfer adjustment presets from one system (Mac) to another (Win) and is this possible in the first place? So if anyone knows the answer or a workaround that doesn't involve loading everything manually I'd be pretty thankful. Greetings Dennis
  25. Hi, First and if this case has already been mentioned in another topic I apologise. If this is the case please point me in the right path If not here's the problem. I have my workspace bot in Affinity Photo and Designer arranged ir order to have more working area. I also prefer to have the panels/tools more to the left side since I'm left hand and I tend to rest my hand more on that side (using a Wacom tablet). So, and since both apps give me the possibility to arrange the workspace as I want, I decided to have most of the panels aligned and closed in the top of the working area (see the attached files). So far so good. The problem is that when I have to use or call a dropdown menu or a dialog window they appear beneath those panels (img 2 e 3) when they should be on top (img1). When this happens the options in those dialog are not visible. The strange thing is that there are panels appearing on top (few) and the most part appearing beneath. Is this a bug? Is there a way to correct or it's better to go back to a more tradicional arrangement having panels in the left and in the right? Thanks, Pedro
