  1. I updated Mac font library to include a new font. Switching back to Publisher, the app had a popup messaging about "updating the font library". I was unable to click anywhere on the app, or cancel said update. It remained like this for several minutes before I forced quit the app. Sorry Id isn't take a screenshot. Didn't think of doing this until after I restarted the program.

  3. I've recently started using the batch feature to speed up my workflow. I had a few recordings saved in the library but the other day I went to use one and poof...they were gone. I couldn't even see the default presets. Thinking that maybe it was a glitch I tried replicating one I'd made (I needed to edit a group of photos). Once I'd completed it I tried to save it to my library....nothing. No popup window no nothing, like the link had been cut. I tried resetting the program but it didn't resolve the issue. I dont know if I deleted the batch folder or something by accident, but regardless it's not working and I need this feature for my business. Can someone please help me??????
  4. Where is the library panel? I was looking at the video with the instagram like filters but can't seem to find it Thanks, awesome job!
  5. Hi, I’m trying to use some macros that I’ve created in AP but when I launch them from library window, it won’t start until I click on the macro several times, but the problem is that then AP applies 2 or 3 times the macro. It doesnt matter if the background layer is selected or not. Also tried with beta of AP but same issue is still present. The only way to make macros work is right click, select “edit macro” and then play it from macro window. Then it works. No matter the complexity of the macro, all custom macros have the same issue. Finally I’ve noticed that free macros pack from Affinity, doesn’t habe that issue. I was wondering if it’s my fault while recording a macro, but after looking tutorials and reading a lot of information I can’t figure out why is it happening. Hope anyone knows a solution. Thanks! PS: Using with MacBook Pro 13” late 2011 and iMac 27” late 2011 with High Sierra installed.
  6. Hi Serif Team, I bought Affinity Photo half a year ago, and it hasn't disappointed me. In fact, I am very happy with it. But I miss the library function from Lightroom. When I edit a 20mb RAW file, the .afphoto file is 130mb big (or similar dimensions). I would really appreciate a library functionality, the project files don't have to contain copies of the source files. And I would really like to hand off the managing of all the projects to a background program. Maybe this is even an idea for another new app, and it isn't urgent. But I wanted to mention that there is interest in such an app. Best Regards
  7. I learn best by personally trying out what I see in tutorials. Where can I download the image used in the tutorial, (see link below). Thanks. https://vimeo.com/channels/affinitydesigner
  8. Hey Guys, long time PS user, 18+ years to be exact. I put off learning Ai for ever and when I finally decided to learn Adobe's business model pretty much put the brakes on that ever happening. To say I am disgusted with Adobe would be an understatement. I have some high hopes for Affinity Designer. I am glad to see aggressive and constant improvements to AD. After spending most of the day getting to know AD I was pleased that I could typically find answers either here or on Youtube. So being that I am here in the Suggestions thread I do have one MAJOR request and one Minor request. 1) A vector library that I can add to, preferably one that will recognize .csh files that I have accumulated over the years. Some from other users and some I've made myself. We already have the basic basic circle, triangle, square etc etc in AD but we need the ability to save new vector shapes for future use that is easily accessible. It would be great for the vector library to have an open source community data base so we can contribute and share with others. When I design a complex vector shape I appreciate the ability to save it and even improve upon it at will the way that I can in PS. 2) The ability to put two different / even multiple vector shapes on one layer. Making a new layer every time you create a vector shape can be hell when you have to comb back through a list trying to discover even a minor flaw. To me those two improvements would put AD in an advanced stage of development. I'd be willing to pay another $50 or even $100 just to have a vector library as an add'on feature. It is that important to me. Thank you and I look forward to growing with this community! CHEERS! GraphXlord

    Macros-"Unexpected Macros Format"

    After a recent crash, was unable to access any macros or create new ones. Reloaded AP, still getting an error message when attempting to import "Unexpected Macros Format". Any help would be appreciated.
  10. What would be great is a shared work folder in the cloud. Start a project on one device and resume working on in on the other device. Save a file directly in the cloud. I use Dropbox a my projects folder. But it would be great if the iPad supports directly working and saving files from this folder without exporting it first.
  11. I am experiencing a very bizarre problem playing macros with my Wacom pen. When I click on a macro in the library with my pen it turns blue but the macro does not play. It does very occasionally but on most occasions it requires several attempts (usually three or four) before it responds. If I click in the library with my mouse it plays first time always. I have tried the following: Verified my Wacom driver is up to date and re-installed it for good measure. Tried every variation I can think of in tap speed, pressure and duration. Tried adjusting tip pressure in the Wacom driver. To check if I had a pen tip problem I have tried mapping the left click to the eraser button and the side buttons. No difference. I have tried mapping left click to the tablet touch surface and finger tapping. No change. My tablet and pen work perfectly in every other aspect of AP and AD and in all my other 'pen sensitive' graphic apps as well as in the El Capitan OS. The problem is unique to the Library in AP. Has anyone else experienced anything resembling this? Does anyone have any bright troubleshooting ideas? This is totally bizarre and frustrating. :( Mac Pro 2 x Quad Core. OSX 10.11.6. Intuos Touch Pro 5 Large.

    Unstable Symbols in Designer/Photo

    Hi guys, I have the Versions: Photo 1.6.6 Designer 1.6 I have experienced the following issue(s): - when having many instances on stage at some points Affinity Designer stops updating instances .. somehow it creates a duplicate of a symbol WITHOUT adding that one to the Symbols library. - Also something weird happens in Designer when you have maaany instances ... I am talking really many (grouped and with effects on top like gaussian blur) ... imaging needles of a hedgehog ... at some point it just hides some symbols or updates symbols even on hiding one of them ... or/and crashes the file and the app ... so really weird and I hat to flatten all symbols to stop it ... please can you make it more stable even with many instances? And even with huge documents - when jumping to “Photo” from “Designer” and continue editing I really miss the “Symbols library panel” in “Photo” (why is it not existing in PHOTO) but still it somehow understands the symbols even when then going back to “Designer” thanks in advance ... please come back to me for more info if needed I found some similar issue here:
  13. I think I may have mentioned this before without getting any feedback, but I would really like to have a tab/place to save symbol/shapes we create. A lot of software programs have Shape Libraries where they can save and categorize shapes. This makes it so easy to grab a shape and insert into the picture and save a shape we created while drawing a picture.
  14. I've got a list of macros in the library. I can reorder them by dragging individual macros around (blue bar becomes visible), but I can't drag a macro to the bottom of a category. Also, when I've created a new category at the bottom of the library and drag a macro down to this, the cursor gets a little '+' box on it, suggesting I can add the macro to this category, but when I release the mouse button, it is not moved. There's also an odd flicker as I drag the macro, flashing back to its original place.
  15. I am working with the Photo beta 16.0.82 on Windows 10 x64 This is not an issue in PHOTO 1.52.69 I just imported a few macros into the library I could not view them all The scroll bar does not work (you cannot grasp it with the mouse pointer) and the arrows go either to the top or bottom My work around was to make additional categories and have less that 13 in each category as any attempt to scroll seems to jump categories If someone could test that and if I am missing something please advise Thanks
  16. When you use the Import on the Macro panel, it only looks for .macro files. But if the macro you want is in a library file and you don't want to import the whole library, it would be neat if the Macro import also let you access .macros files and then let you choose which macro to import from there. Likewise, importing into the library should allow you to select a .macro file and then select which library category to put it in. More generally, the difference between .macro and .macros files can be easily missed, leading to user confusion. In other words it's a usabiliy issue and intelligent coping with this is a Good Thing.
  17. Since Macros regrettfully can't be called by customized key-shortcuts (or did I miss out on an essential development step?) I need to have the workspace consuming Library panel open to work with my own Macros. I do have 5 categories within the library. Each of them contains quite some Macros (most of them provided by Serif). Since I don't need the first 4 Macro categories (with a multitude of entries) I close these categories to be able to access the few entires of my own categorie. Now each time I open up a new file all categories open up, forcing me each time to manually close all obsolete categories again and again for each document to be able to access my own macros. This drives my crazy! Even worse: when you switch to another document and switch back to your old document the categories in the library are automatically expanded again and I've got to start all over again .... this seems to be an job creation scheme on highest level Having added your new category and you're trying to overcome the above behaviour at least to a certain extend (it makes no sense to close categories since AP will open them instantly again) best idea is to move it up to the top of the list. But this expanding-category behaviour really stresses it to the very end: Each time after moving your (new and therefor last) category one step up .... the library panel expands all other categories again .... forcing you to either close all categories again or find your own categorie some where ... forcing you to repeat the procedure unltil you finally got it to first entry in the panel. Unless this is just an unlucky startup setting and it can be changed somewhere within the program (where I haven't found it yet): Please let the library panel save the customer selected settings of the panel automatically (this would be really helpful for many panels!). Please keep it saved for each document seperately. Don't expand any categories automatically! I know by know that many people here keep rolling their eyes when I start mentioning the word "workflow" since noone seems to care for such things or wants to improve in this area but I seriously hope this will change in future when more people will use AP on a daily and professional base .... Cheers, Timo
  18. Hi How is it best to organise resource images in Photo? For example skies for sky replacement. At the moment they live in a Windows folder but it's not a very smart solution. Any suggestions welcome. thanks andy

    Bug add to library

    Hello, I use affinity photo on window for several months now, and I just had a very embarrassing bug, indeed I can no longer add macro in my library. The bug arrived when my affinity photo stopped working while I was exporting a batch image. I restarted my software, tried to reset my preferences, reinstall the software, restarted my pc, but nothing works ... impossible to click here : Do you have an idea for everything reset? Thank !
  20. I moved the library list to the side and it disappeared, how do I retrieve it back. Also, how do I get the inpaint tool, in the tutorial, it shows it on the top bar, but I can't find it? Many thanks for your help in advance.
  21. Hello, would be great to change the background color of the Panel of the Assets Library. Would be very useful once you have a lot of Icons in the Assets Library See attachment- THX Nod
  22. It would be great to be able to nest categories within the library. For example I could then put all my macro sets for luminosity control under one top-level category. Thanks!
  23. When you first open Affinity Photo, the library defaults to having all categories opened. If you've a lot of macros then you have to do a lot of scanning or cycle through closing them and selectively reopening all to find the one macro you want to use. Ideally the library would configurably open at its previous state. If you can't do this, then defaulting to opening with all categories closed is much better than having them all open. Thanks!
  24. Affinity Photo v 1.5.1.54 Windows 10.1 Macros are saved as *.afmacro files. But Macro Library only recognises *afmacros files. So a saved macro is not visible to Library - import macros. In fact, an *afmacro file is entirely invisible to A.P.. Adding the missing final "s" to the file name does not cure the problem as Affinity Photo then declares the renamed *macros file as having an "Unexpected Macros Format". A macro can be saved but not used again. I have 770 images files in need of a macro-driven batch job. Please tell me I don't have to do it manually, 770 times.
  25. Hi, In Affinity Photo, I currently have four pre-installed Libraries (for macros): Default Image Styles Distortions Light Leaks Is it possible to create a new Library category, where I can store my own macros (actions)?
