  1. I think I've had this issue for a while now... Objects with Multiply and edge softening (like Gaussian blur) get this annoying "halo" when exported to PDF using any CoatedFOGRA icc. This used to work. But somewhere on the way with the updates this started to appear. If exported with Generic CMYK profile all blends in nicely (see attachment). But Fogra just spoils everything. If I change the blending mode to normal, all is well. But any other Blending mode just breaks it.
  2. Mac 10.115.3, AFPUB 1.8.3 On the Mac, the user can set Notifications to pop up on the desktop. I've noticed that when this happens and you are using some tool while editing an AFPUB document, the cursor can change. For example, if I am editing text in a frame, you have a vertical bar as a cursor. When a notification pops up, the cursor instantly changes to an arrow. And it stays an arrow until you click somewhere else on the document (say, outside the bleed area). Happens reliably. It's a small nit to pick, but it is annoying and it can make for a confusing situation - you don't know where you are in the text since the cursor has changed and the vertical bar is no longer visible.
  3. Guten Tag an alle, hoffe es geht euch gut. Vor allem seit der letzten Version bin ich begeistert von Affinity Publisher. Da hat sich einiges getan. Ich habe das Problem, dass mir der Publisher in der Checkliste folgende Mitteilung hinterlässt: "Fehlendes Wörterbuch für Sprache (de-CH). Seit Version 1.8.2 korrigiert der Publisher auch die Fehler richtig und reagiert auch auf neu erlente Wörter. Ich möchte jetzt diese Meldung noch los werden. Ich vermute, dass ich das fehlende Wörterbuch irgendwie einfbinden oder installieren kann - aber wie? Affinity Publisher Version: 1.8.2 System: macOS Catalina Ich habe gelesen, dass auf Mac Affinity den Spell-checker vom OS verwendet. Muss das Wörterbuch nun in Affinity Publisher oder im OS eingebunden werden? Danke für eure Hilfe und Gruss Dominik
  4. This morning I downloaded the latest version of Affinity Publisher for the Mac. It was an upgrade to the version already installed which was very stable. Now I am experiencing crashes every time I try to apply master pages or make adjustments to document setup. The software just crashes without warning. Mac OS Catalina 10.15.5 Apple Mac Mini Early 2012 16 GB of RAM
  5. Upgraded to Publisher 1.8.4 via US Apple App Store on Aug 3. Running MacOS 10.15.6 on 2018 iMac with 32 GB RAM. Open 2 page document and move page 2 to before page 1 causes crash. Mac crash report attached. I have uninstalled the app and reinstalled on Aug 4 with no change. I have turned off all graphics accelerators, no change. I have disconnected Wacom tablet and used Apple Trackpad, no change. Open 110 page, 195 MB document created with v 1.8.3 over the past 3 or 4 weeks. I can scroll thru the pages but I cannot edit or even select text. Many styles are missing and I cannot select or edit styles. I can click on the arrow to expand hierarchical styles and the arrow changes from right pointing to down pointing or vice-versa but no sub-styles list does not change. The pages studio panel shows all blank pages. File close causes the app to hang forever with spinning rainbow wheel. Because I bought the app via the Apple app store I cannot go back to 1.8.3. Can I download the older version from the Serif site and install it without paying for it again? AP 2-pg doc crash.txt
  6. Hi there, I used a 3D effect and Outer Glow on the ball and a layer behind the ball with a brush of white paint. The jpg looks even uglier. See screenshots. Best regards, Puck.
  7. Ruler in Photo gives different measurement depending whether I use cm or mm. In centimeter it seems correct. When I switch to millimeters, it show 12,5 mm for 1 cm. Also, in mm it shows 20 where (from the marks) it should read 25. Could be an older issue, since it's there in 1.8.3 and 1.8.4.184 (beta) as well. See screenshots. Not that big a thing in a really great application, though I thought I should mention it. Rig here: iMac (Retina 5K, 27-inch, 2017), OS 10.15.6 rgds, joachim
  8. On a Mac, by click an hold on an app icon in the dock you are presented with the most resent document. By clicking on a document in the list the app should start and open the selected document. This doesn't happen with Publisher. It doesn't even open the app. Publisher_open_from_dock.mp4
  9. Hi folks, Anyone else encountered this weird bug in Affinity Designer? I selected a large area of the document and the selection box just 'froze'. I could still move the mouse and even move between windows, but the blue box remained there, overlaying everything I did. I quit and reopened and it vanished.
  10. When saving a file, Affinity Photo is creating a separate file each time I press cmd S, almost like saving as. I noticed this when I navigated to the folder I had saved my file to and found lots of copies of the file. I am saving to iCloud Drive. As I'm a newbie I thought this might be a versioning feature but I have since found that it shouldn't be happening. Tom
  11. Hello team, is the ARM technology of the new macs an improvement in the Affinity suite? what are the advantages of this change?
  12. Hi, I'm new to Affinity Photo so I apologise if the behaviour below is normal (I did search FAQ's) I navigated to the folder containing the file I am working on to find multiple copies of the file. It looks like each time I have pressed 'cmd S' a new version of the file has been created, kind of like 'Save as'. Is this normal for Affinity Photo? It doesn't do this behaviour in Affinity Designer. Is it some kind of versioning? Or is it a bug? I'm saving in iCloud Drive. Cheers Tom
  13. Hi, I do a lot of photo editing in Affinity Photo and Capture One. I also do a lot of vector editing in Affinity Designer. Last year, to speed up workflow, I bought a new Apple iMac Pro 3 GHz 10-Core Intel Xeon W, 64GB memory, Radeon Pro Vega 64X 16 GB graphics card and 2 TB SSD. This machine did cost me 8500€! This is very very expensive for me, but previously I had a MacBook Pro (2016) that was too slow for my graphics editing. So I thought to me let's spend a little more money to get a really powerful and fast machine, so my graphics editing will be in realtime without waiting time at all. At least that was what I wished and thought. But I have to say that neither Affinity Photo nor Affinity Designer have become much faster with the new computer. Both programs often have very long waiting times when working. I always watch the CPU usage and see that no core is ever used to its maximum. Let alone that all cores are used. It is absolutely incomprehensible to me that I have waiting times in the programs if there are enough performance resources available but they are not being used. For example, I like to work with the Inpainting Brush in Affinity Photo. Sometimes I really have to wait about a minute for it to finish calculating. It is very annoying. During this time, my computer has enough resources that Affinity does not use to calculate it faster. It may take advantage of 2-3 cores in half and the GPU by a quarter. But the rest of the cores do almost nothing. And we're not talking about huge photos here. I recently edited a 12MP iPhone photo. Or I work in Affinity Designer with graphics that consist of approx. 2000 elements. It is almost impossible to select all of these elements and move them around. It is so jerky that the graphics are rendered here and there and lag behind. It is impossible to work with. Here too it can be observed that perhaps two of the CPU cores do something, but are also underutilized. The rest does nothing. The GPU doesn't do anything either. Believe me, I've tried every combination of performance settings in Affinity Photo and Designer. Because it really annoys me that everything is so slow! But it only got slower than faster. I would understand that there is a waiting period if all resources are used to the maximum and there are no resources left. But because the CPU and GPU of my machine are mostly idle while I see slow process bars and long waiting and reaction times, I wonder if something is wrong? My question is, can I do something about it e.g. use certain special settings or is Affinity Photo and Designer not developed for using the performance of my machine? I've already spoken to Apple Support who checked my machine. But everything is normal and fine. I have reinstalled macOS and every app. But it hasn't changed. I mean a year ago this machine was advertised as "Power for Pros" or as "the fastest Mac every build". It would only have been faster with the 18 cores version with 256GB memory. So I ask myself, what machine do I need to buy from Apple to have a noticeable speed advantage? Best regards, Christoph
  14. Hello, I was wondering if within Affinity Designer is there a "Free transform tool" to allow perspective distort with shapes, this is something that can be done within illustrator where you can take two points and can move them together or further apart with equal distance like the example below. You can kinda do this with the "Corner" tool set to straight but this is set to only one angle when perspective distort can change the angle. Thank you for your time and I hope you have a great day.
  15. My old mac is dying and I wanted to know if its possible to switch my license from a mac to a pc? I hate to switch but macs are expensive and not that great anymore.
  16. It seems like something is not working as we are used to, or probably I am missing something, and searching for 1 hour does not bring up any satisfying results. I would like to remove part of one shape using another shape in a way that I can see the transparent background, and unfortunately, topics like this also did not solve the problem. Here is an example screenshot, similar to what I would like to achieve: I would like to remove the inner rectangle in a way to subtract the outer one and see the transparent background. Thank you so much for your help.
  17. Here is a link to download a zip file containing iconic freeware fonts under the SIL freeware license. I have them in my own library and thought they might be of use to someone. MAC and Windows fonts included. iconic-fonts.zip OFL.txt
  18. As I search the forum, this very severe difficulty/bug makes my migration to APu miserable. I just have startet to built up a layout for a municipal periodical. I'm in typesetting since over 25 years, using Mac, .indd and my standard fonts (like "Berthold Akzidenz Grotesk"), system admin. The test-layout consists of 5 pages with text starting at page 2-3 with text frames chained up by hand and one text frame for a picture captation. There are a lot of tests with other fonts (to get optimized space requirement for the lot of text, later in the final issue) and intense work with styles ... As I export that test file to PDF/X-3 or -4 the 5th or 6th time, I get the note: The file <path and name.pdf> could not be written" (or created?. I use a German version). What a horror, if that occurs 2 days befor printing!? - this is the second time, I run into that "no go". - may be, this occurs if one has a text overflow (in a not-linked text frame)? Even, if you repair that by linking that text frame with a next one on the next page? - is APu addicted to postscript printer drivers? I have a Xerox printer with original Adobe Postscript (oh, dear ...) and the last days I updated it. Failure despite or because that update? - may be, there is an inconvenience with fonts, which have an "embedding flag"? In all my decades of (Mac) praxis, I *never* had been confronted with that nonsense. But now with APu? >> There can be any bug in a new publishing software, but PDF export has to run under any circumstances and whatever barbwire a user has filled into his layout. An PDF export has to go (may be, not a good PDF, but anyway one). This reminds me of my times with QuarkXpress: After *weeks* of layout on a catalogue for an art auction house, all the sudden in the morning Quark tells: The file couldn't be opened ...! (ahgrrr) "Any help is appreciated" Thanks, Johannes
  19. Hi, I tried asking my question in another topic: But since nobody responded, I'm trying my luck here. So, I got a fresh install of AD, version 1.7. And when I try to draw with a vector brush there is a lag between my actual movements and the time it appears as a stroke on my canvas. There is no problem with pixel brushes in Pixelmode. I use a MacBook Air (2015) runs on Mojave (10.14.6). 1.6 GHZ i5, 8GB/1600 MHz/DDR3. So I looked at my settings in AD and unticked the metal compute box. I set the dropdown to OpelGL. I set my document to web-RGB/8 en 72 dpi. But no change. I also have an old version of Adobe Illustrator (CS5). When painting there with vector brushes there is no lag. So it's not the performance of my laptop, so it seems. I use a Wacom Bamboo, but also with just the MacBooks trackpad it has the same lag. Any suggestions for me to try?
  20. AFPUB 1.8.4.648 OS X 10.15.3 Originally posted August 2019. As this is publishing software, it would be extremely helpful to have grammar check built in. Without this feature, one would have to offload the text somehow, check it in some other piece of software, and then manually make the corrections. I'm not sure whether the grammar checking should be "on demand" and/or "as you type." Either way, it's going to be very handy to have built into Affinity Publisher. On the Mac, when you use the Shift-Command-Colon keys it brings up the "Spelling and Grammar" window. The grammar is built into the operating system of the Mac in the user's chosen language. I noted that this is the same window that I see in AFPUB (more or less). See the two screen captures below. I'd suggest that AFPUB be made aware of that for the Mac and be able to invoke the Grammar Check using the check box provided on the Mac Spelling and Grammar window. That means you would not have to create a grammar checker inside AFPUB, just use the operating system's built-in capability. Perhaps there might be something similar in Windows?
  21. Please see the referenced issue regarding the built-in spelling and grammar feature that the Mac uses - it's the same, or similar, to what AfPUB is using currently, but without the grammar. https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/114216-feature-request-grammar/&tab=comments#comment-621349 Thanks for considering using this feature.
  22. Hello, I right-click on an object in the layers menu and choose copy. I then click on another object in the layers menu to make it active. I go to Edit > Paste FX to apply the FX. In this case, the copied FX was a Bevel/Emboss - Radius 0.5 px, Soften 1 px. What was pasted was Pillow - 0.6 px, Soften 1.2 px. The other settings seem to remain the same, however, they were the default. I would have hoped that the FX paste would retain all the settings contained from the original copy and would be pasted but this seems not to be the case. I am learning to use this software and maybe I am just missing the proper sequence of steps. Macbook Pro mid-2014, 10.14.6, Designer 1.8.3. Thank you.
  23. Hi, I am playing around with Indexes for the first time and having a hard time removing topics from the Index panel. More specifically, in my case right now, I cannot remove a "See..." cross reference. Am I just missing a keystroke here? Additionally, 'refreshing' or 'updating' an Index doesn't seem to work at all. I can only get a current index on the page by deleting the original and creating a new one. Using a macbook pro. Thanks!
  24. All of a sudden colors are not properly being represented in Designer. Attached is a screenshot showing that the color #333333 is showing up as #7b7c7b. Does anyone have any idea why?
  25. Question: Is it possible to have a 'icon size slider' similar to the one found in MacOS Finder? Issue/situation: I mostly find my documents in 'icon view' but I am not able to increase the icon sizes in the Affinity Photo open document dialog, similar to how I can in the MacOS finder. Is there a way to do so or is this a feature request for Affinity Devs? Attachment: See attached screenshot of the icon size slider for reference. Operating system: OSX Catalina 10.15.3 Affinity Photo: Version 1.8.3 Any help or input on this matter is much appreciated. Thank you in advance. PS: if this post is in the wrong forum, then please let me know, and I will submit it in another.
