  1. Hi, Sorry, I don't know where to post about the forum. I checked the forum with the option "Content I Posted In", and today, each time I click on a link, I end up on the 1st page of the thread instead of the latest post. Is that normal? I'm used to check "Contents I follow", that send to the latest post of the thread and it seems more logical.
  2. There has been a persistent bug in the Forum software which results in the member's location being elided with the word 'Location' in a message ID. Someone posted a solution to this a long time ago which I cannot now find. A problem is that if you prepend the location with a space it gets lost. I have solved this by simply prepending the two characters ': ' (colon-space) to my location. I entered ': Essex' rather than just 'Essex'. You can see the result in my message information to the left. John
  3. In many posts, I see frame comprising a link to another post in these forums. There is a link arrow in the top right corner. How do I create such a link? For example, if I wanted to link to this post: I seem to have answered my own question. I just inserted the url and it got automatically embedded. However I'm sure there are many users who would like to know this. John
  4. I have made a number of posts in this Tutorials forum on how to do various things, mainly involving Distort > Equations. Many have also provided a macro that executes the operation. I have realized more recently that posts such as these, which are mainly presenting a macro would better fit in the Resources forum. I would welcome some guidance from moderators as to choosing the appropriate forum. My feeling is that a post that is mainly explaining a procedure, a 'how to' is best as a Tutorial, whereas a post presenting a finished product (a macro) is best as a Resource. There could be appropriate cross-referencing between the two if needs be. Just to blur the issue, I note that the Tutorials forum often has posts which are asking for 'how to' explanations, which should perhaps belong in the Questions forum. Perhaps the mods would include a sticky Guidelines for Tutrials at the top of the forum? John
  5. Hello, Sorry if I appear a bit lame, and possibly posting the wrong forum, but I wanted to know if there was a way to filter the tutorials by software eg: only designer or publisher. Sometimes tutorials don't even mention which software they cover (most of the tutorials seems to be for APhoto, which I don't own). I can't find a way to filter by tags (even though most posts don't have the software as a tag, it could help). I find searching a bit tedious a a result, but there is search feature I may have missed? This is bizarre because other forums are separated by "Photo", "designer", "Publisher", and then separated by platform. As it stands, the tutorials sub-forum is a bit of a mess Let this small puzzlement not distract from the fact that I am very grateful to those who publish tutorials
  6. I've had a look on the Invision website and can only find this: https://invisioncommunity.com/4guides/how-to-use-ips-community-suite/content-discovery/searching-your-community-r70/ which isn't much use. It would be nice to have some instructions on how to search for, for example: * All posts where the body contains both the words "first" and "second" but not "third"; * All posts where the body contains "first" but not either "second" or "third"; * All posts that have "first second" - in that order, next to each other - and also "third" anywhere else in the post; * All posts that have "first second" - in that order, next to each other - but not where "third" is anywhere else in the post * All posts that have "first" in the title but not "second" in the body; * All posts that have "first" in the title and "second" or "third" in the body; etc. etc. etc. (The example words are just 'place-holders' and not actual search terms.) Obviously there are many different ways people want to search but if we had some instructions on what sort of thing we can do then it might make it easier for us to find things (and perhaps not report duplicate problems/issues).
  7. When creating new forum topic, most authors forget about what product the topic is about, which often makes the answers more difficult and leads to further questions. Would not it be advisable to allow product type to be entered using checkboxes directly on the input form?
  8. I've noticed there's now a "Hide" button in the area where you can reply to a topic. I was just wondering what it was for and why I might want to use it.
  9. Hello, I have a suggestion for the forums. How about adding a ": "(colon and a space) after Location info or simply removing the text "Location" from the post/comment author pane. Its really annoying(I hope many would have felt the same). Current issue: My suggested change would be: Thanks!
  10. In the "Reply" section of a thread we can use the "at" sign and type someone's nick to create a 'whatever-it's-called' that notifies that user. Most of the time I have to enter pretty-much the entire nick to get the one I want. It would be better if the software put the nicks of the people who have already posted to the thread at the top of the list. Having the 'current thread users' nicks at the top of the list would make it much easier to select them.
  11. Apologies for posting this here but, as you will read later, there wasn't anywhere else for me to put it. There have been a few times where I have needed to ask a question about the forum itself - not the software, just the forum website - and have had to put my post somewhere - like here - that seems inappropriate. Would it be possible for there to be a "Forum Questions" section just for people asking about the forum software? You could pin tips and information up there too so people know how to conduct themselves. Or what about a "Website Questions" section where people could also post about things on the main Affinity website and Affinity Spotlight too? I have a couple of questions to ask and I really don't want to have to put them in the "Customer Service, Accounts and Purchasing" section, but there's nowhere else that I can see.
  12. I didn't know where to post this issue as it's not about the Affinity software itself, so apologies if it's in the wrong place. Earlier today, once I'd added someone's nick to the start of a new post - using the 'at' symbol - I found that I couldn't paste text into the post or delete the nick. I had to submit the post and then add another after it: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/72823-i-would-like-to-know-where-can-i-get-a-newsprint-style-filter/&tab=comments#comment-382498 Could someone have a look and see if it was just me doing something wrong please?
  13. Using the latest Mac version of Firefox, I just spent the past half hour trying to join your forum but kept getting the message "You did not pass the security check. Please try again." There was no clue what the failure was or how to fix it. I was about to give up when I thought maybe I'd try once more with Safari. This time the Security Check had a Captcha in it. Apparently, the Captcha isn't working in Firefox. I just thought you might want to know about this. I'll attach a screenshot of what I was getting. As long as this gets to the right people there should be no need to actually post it on your forums. <Pic containing email address removed by mod>
  14. I'd prefer to avoide to post already existing topics. Therefore it would be very useful, to make the search option/filter "Search in This Forum" working. At least as long the UI contains issues it would help a lot in any search for "windows" not to get results relating the Windows operating system within the Mac forum.
  15. I have seen that this forum has a section where people share the work and it would seem ideal for me to have a social network with this initiative. Some of us already do it in the social networks that exist, but if there was one of Affinity, it could be used for everything that this web page serves.
  16. Is it possible / How to preset or trigger a Custom Sort Filter without using “SORT BY”? /&sortby=forums_topics.last_post&sortdirection=desc&page=1&filter=???????
  17. Quick Tips: for finding Affinity content with Google Search With a few helpful Google search engine tricks, searching the Affinity Forum via Google can be made much more effective. The Common Search In general, you should string search terms with a space together to start the context search. Thus, the input "Affinity forum gradient" or "Affinity forum macro" in the search window shows all found link entries on the screen which contain those terms. Quoting ("...") helps to search after more closely related search text here. Extended or Exclusive Search To make Google search more effective, you should use so-called operators. Here are some of them. A tilde (~) before a search term makes the term synonymous. So "Affinity ~forum" brings both the Affinity forum as well as hints for possible other related forums. With a minus sign (-) you can specifically exclude terms from the search. For example, the minus designer in "Affinity layer masks -designer" calls up a list of Affinity layer masks related entries without designer in the context. With a plus sign (+) you can instead specifically include terms to the search criterias. Search in and for Websites To specifically search a particular website/page, prefix your search term with a "site:URL" - where the URL is the web address of the site/page on which you read the info recently. For example, "site:affinity.forum.com macro recording" searches and calls for a list of threads which deal with macro recording on the Affinity forum. A minus sign in the "-site:URL" input behind the actual search terms excludes results from the named URL. So "Affinity video -site:youtube.com" will exclude all Youtube videos from the search. With "site:de" it will only search German websites with the extension .de; Of course, other endings like .org or .com etc. can also be used here. With "related:URL" you can find out if other websites have similar content. In order to browse only publications from a specific period, you must connect the adjacent years with three points: here "2014...2018" only lists publications between 2014 and 2018 in the results list. For example in order to find at affinity.forum.com current practical contributions to macro recording you would use "site:affinity.forum.com macro recording 2016...2018". Some helpful browser shortcuts To speed up the search in general, there are a few shortcuts available. For example, "Ctrl + F" will bring up a small search window at the bottom of the page that will help you to search the current page for terms. Ctrl + or - enlarges the view, zooms in or out. Ctrl + L moves the cursor back to the address bar so you can enter a new website or search term. Calculations, units of measurement and currencies The Google search engine can also calculate and convert. For those of you who struggle with mental arithmetic, just type the math questions directly into the Google search window using the +, -, * / symbols. This calls at the same time the calculator for further input of even more complicated tasks. If you want to convert units of measure or currencies, you can also type these directly into the search window. Thus, the input "inches in millimeters" picks up a unit calculator, with "pounds in euros" you get the current price displayed as well as references to various currency converters.
  18. Hi all, I don't know about everyone else but I sometimes get confused with posts that don't mention whether its Affinity Designer or Affinity Photo. I really think there should be sub forums under Questions for Affinity Designer and Affinity Photo or make a tag or label that indicates which of the programs is being discussed, as it is I think its a bit of a mess. Another option would be to replace the bullet point with the appropriate programs logo or at least change the colour of the bullet so that posts with pink bullet points are for Affinity Photo? what do you all think? Got an idea yourself?
  19. Bonjour et bonne année à tous !! Un petit message pour vous informer que je viens d'ouvrir un forum en français pour les personnes comme moi qui ont des difficultés avec l'anglais. Je tiens à préciser que je ne suis pas un utilisateur confirmé des applications Affinity, j'en suis qu'au stade de l'apprentissage, mais si je peux aider et en fonction de mes connaissances et disponibilités, je le ferai volontiers (20 ans avec les outils d'Adobe surtout Indesign). Débutants et qualifiés soyez les bienvenus ;) MiKL www.affinity-forum.fr
  20. There's lots of good things in this forum, but they can be hard to find and it's difficult to browse as people seem to post questions and comments into any area. Probably where they happen to be at the moment. It's understandable, perhaps, and may be viewed as a usability issue rather than a user problem. A simple way to cope with this is to just use tags rather than 'folders'. Have both the user-entered ones, as now, plus required choices. Choices should include AP, AD or both Question, Comment, Bug, Tutorial or Resource Also allow moderators to correct these. Then make it ultra-easy to filter on these.So I just click 'AP' and 'Tutorial' to see real tutorials for Affinity Photo, not random questions about anything. Or even have links already up for each combination. You could also offer a tag cloud for user-generated tags. Tx
  21. Hi . I am new to Affinity Photo. When I create a gradient layer and make my gradient, and then go on to something else. If I want to go back and adjust my gradient. Can and how can I do it.
  22. Hello, On the iPad, I have click twice to enter a forum thread. I'm assuming that there is a roll over that gets activated on the first click. I believe there is a simple CSS branching that can be done to disable the rollover for touch devices. Thanks!
  23. I use these forums quite a bit to discover how to use Affinity better. These forums however… I'm not sure what is powering them, I guess InVision? I think this is a sub par experience for a number of reasons: - Does not respond effectively to mobile devices - login/lout out is clunky and I often loose my session and have to re-login - Feels super old This last point is hard to nail down but should be fairly apparent. It feels like using a bbs/phpbb form from 2002~ish. There are a lot of great tools for managing communities and forums and as someone who used to work with clients who used InVision is not a good option. To put it simply This (https://affinity.serif.com/en-us/) and This (https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php) feel like they come from a different century. Some alternatives: - https://muut.com - http://www.discourse.org - http://zendesk.comexample>>> https://support.todoist.com/hc/en-us Apologies if this sounds overly negative, affinity designer is awesome.
  24. Hi all, I've finally got some more artwork to post, but the uploader won't let me use that extension (jpg) or Pinterest weblinks, but PDFs are fine: also my upload limit has not been exceeded yet. Any ideas? peter
  25. Hey there, I think it would be useful to have different subforums for bugreporting for each software. At the moment, e.g. bugs for AD and AP are both reported in one subforum although there are even subforums for Bugs on Windows and Bugs on Mac. One level more would give a more clear/tidy overview. Greetings, Johannes.
