  1. Serif allow customers to test new builds of the software even before it is released to the public. These "beta" builds offer an opportunity to trial bug fixes, add support for new file formats and show off new features before they are launched. This post is designed to be an aid to knowing if you are trying the latest beta version of the Affinity software on your platform. Product Name | Platform | Beta Ver. | ====================|====================|===============| Affinity Designer | Windows 7, 8.1, 10 | 1.9.0.891 | Affinity Photo | Windows 7, 8.1, 10 | 1.9.0.891 | Affinity Publisher | Windows 7, 8.1, 10 | 1.9.0.887 | Please see the last post in this thread for links to posts announcing these beta builds. Those pinned posts have download links to the beta software. Windows Customer Betas require you to be an owner of the paid for version of the software to work. You either need to have the software installed on the same computer as the customer beta OR if you bought direct from the affinity store website you can provide the product key to activate the beta. If you would like to try the Windows Customer Beta build look for the top (pinned) post in each of these forums: Affinity Designer beta for Windows Affinity Photo beta for Windows Affinity Publisher beta for Windows Windows build numbers and Mac builds are technically independent. The third number increases each time a public release is made, the last number is generated by a build server and so not directly related to each other. We will update/edit this post as new Windows Beta releases are added by the developers, so the version numbers should always be right. We will also post to the bottom of the thread so the forum sends a notification to anyone who wants one This thread is locked and will only be posted to by Serif Staff when the beta release versions are updated. Please follow this thread if you want to know about future version changes. If you think this post has got behind announcing the Windows beta updates and needs updating please PM me.
  2. About The Box Set is hundreds of vector and raster brushes made for Affinity Photo & Designer. Each brush was handmade using real materials scanned at high resolutions and crafted to simulate real media. I wanted the origin of the brushes to have a heritage of the materials they are simulating. Scanning pools of watercolor, swatches of paint, and stipples of charcoal contributed to creating brushes with the same idiosyncratic material magic. My only request is that you take these brushes, with their clever names, as suggestions. They work superbly out of the box, but I strongly encourage you to adjust the sliders, rearrange or remove the textures, and discover how they can suit your hand(s). Make. Discover. Repeat. Cheers and happy art making, -Jef (WREN) RASTER BRUSHES For use in Affinity Photo and Designer. The blending brush in the Oil Set is the only one exclusive to Affinity Photo. DRAFTING INK OIL Oil Brush Dynamics Most oil brushes have blending built into pen pressure. With a single brush and hue you can adjust the luminosity of the stroke- giving it an oily blend. The Brush's color in the example above is the color of the background. A normal pressure gives you the hue without any lightening or darkening.

  3. Hello, I am having repeat difficulty rendering panorama's since latest update to 1.7.3.481 Continual repeat crash when rendering panorama's (regardless 50-350photos each) PC Specs: i5, 4670k, 4.1ghz (water cooled, temps under 75 Celcius when 100% cpu) 32gb DDR3 / 1600 (XMP 2400) Raid 0 2x1tb Windows/Program Raid 10 4x4tb (Source folder's) 4tb Spare drive (stand alone) RX590 8gb "fatboy series" AMD Video Card. 3x Benq 24" Displays (1920x1080). Windows 10 Latest updates. All drivers thoroughly up to date. Page file not on Raids, just the spare 4tb. Affinity Photo, i've set for 8, 16, or 24gb's (it uses upwards to 28gb's if I max it of the original ram, before page). Still same issue. Right now I have 4x "pano" source folders, (1,2,3, & 4). All Source files are JPG/ Taken by Samsung S8+ 13mp each I believe. Folder 1: 355 Jpegs, Total 2.19gb Folder 2: 310 Jpegs, Total 1.98gb Folder 3: 276 Jpegs, Total 1.53gb Folder 4: 116 Jpegs, Total 723mb (0.72gb ish) I've tried a catch all at once, toss them all in and see. What is found, then render. I've tried separately to just do folder 4, or 3, etc, smallest first I figured... It can get to the preview part, but when rendering... after a few hours the app fully exits/crashes. I've monitored on Task manager. The drive/memory/cpu and some GPU is used. I'm grasping at straws here. I have done the intel raid check. 0 errors entirely. I've defragged thoroughly. I've trimmed startup apps, scheduled tasks, etc. Literally minimized to maximized performance. I've even set priority of affinity photo to "above normal" I'll happily adjust or customize settings further if any theories help. I recognize panorama's take TIME. I know this thoroughly. I check back every few hours to see progress pro/con. If anyone has suggestions/idea's, hugely appreciated. What else is needed here to proceed/gain support, but proactively in the right direction? - RMLeLoup P.S. Thanks in advance for the thorough read. Edit: Updated version #, Edit 2: How do I get a "crash report" ? If needed, i'll attach, and upload samples if required also. (Have 185/185 fiber/unlim, happy to ts, don't mind)
  4. I bought Affinity Designer for Windows 10 recently, and was wondering if I can use the product key to also use it on my mac. Can I?
  5. For some reason I thought Affinity Designer allowed Plugins but it doesn't. I would like to replace my Fireworks obsession with Affinity Designer. The things I value most in Fireworks are - vectors, as separate objects, can be grouped. (tick) - objects can have effects applied and be editable as vectors (tick) - effects can be extended using plugins, even photoshop plugins, allowing for editable vectors to display with torn paper effect and change the torn paper settings as needed. (fail, no plugins, no plugins as layer effects) Affinity Photo also does not extend the layer/live effects by allowing 3rd party photoshop filters as far as I can tell either. I can't even get it to use any plugins from Photoshop 5.5, 8 or CC 2015 but that might be my own bug.
  6. We are pleased to announce an update for the Windows release of Affinity Designer, version 1.8.5 Changes in this Build The changes in Affinity Designer for Windows 1.8.5 (over the last release Affinity Designer for Windows 1.8.4) are as follows: Fixes & Improvements: Fixed many tablet input problems (by reverting the default input method to be Low Precision mode, the same as in 1.8.3). Added tablet input preference (in Tools section) to opt-in to High Precision mode, or Windows Ink mode (NOTE: previous command line options --legacy-wintab and --disable-wintab are now ignored). Fixed cursor disappearing following keyboard shortcuts that display dialogs, while using a brush tool. Earlier changes and fixes in 1.8 since 1.7 (including the new 1.8 features) are listed in some detail in the 1.8.0 , 1.8.2 and 1.8.3 update announcements. UPDATING TO THIS VERSION (free for existing customers) The software version can be seen on the splash screen and the About dialog (in Help > About Affinity Designer). If you’ve purchased from the Affinity Store— each time you start the Affinity Store software it will check for updates and offer any available update. The latest update will install over the top of any earlier version, with no need to uninstall. You can download the latest installer by logging into the affinity store here and find the order in your account and use the "Download" button in there. Alternatively, this new release (and previous versions of Affinity Designer for Windows) can be downloaded from this link (that installer is NOT for Windows Store purchases and needs a product key). If you’ve purchased from the Microsoft Store— Microsoft Store updates are done automatically by the operating system (each time you start the application). If this does not happen for you, open the Windows Store app and click the three dots in the top right corner of the app and then go to Downloads and Updates. Click Get Updates. This should hopefully force the update to show.
  7. I'm new to this software and still trialing but falling at first hurdle. When I am adding an image to a letter it shows correctly until I print - then it misaligns. Can someone help me please? I've attached image to show my issues. Thanks
  8. I'm a new user for Affinity Photo. I've bought it today and started using it. My problem is that I can't find the text tool on the left bar along side with the brush and other tools. I found all the text editing dialogue but I can't type to begin with.
  9. Hello, I am facing a peculiar issue. I have two windows laptops on which Affinity photo is installed. But only on one of them I get this error when exporting an image after finishing the edit - If I turn the embed metadata option off, then it works. However, on the other laptop there is no such issue. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling affinity photo on the machine, but the issue persists. Incidentally, the machine with this issue is the faster of the two. How can I resolve this? Thanks in advance.
  10. i saved my project in Affinjity Photo own format. when i open single layer project where i place photo top it in this drawing what i have this single layer goes top of picture even normal layer mode. earlier is fully replaced things what are bottom of layer stack. of course i can put photo back of this layer when looks what i expect. or i forgotted how i used them. actually photos (when i added jpeg to of png) work way what i expect. this affinity fle thing is actually useful doing one thing if use such document in guidelines (they are not part end project) of whole project. they show then top of all elements. oddness is these cases work different way and this affinity documnet way is better actually this what i try do.
  11. Today I got strange behavior in operation version 1.8.0.703 after windows update this morning. After removing the white paper from a developed ARW file I try to remove the background with the background remove tool and mouse, both strike to work in normale mode. The XPPen work alone with 1 pixel or total not. The same with the mouse. I have trye the leatest beta and there its working sofar normally. The pen is working like I wanted. Some more have this problem?
  12. Publisher is great. Started Freezing often. I lost much time in-between my frequent CTRL+S for frequent file saves/restart/freeze cycles. Found many other people posting about freeze and crash items. Noticed several that mentioned connections to fonts. Too many fonts installed, freeze during font selection, etc. ) So I looked for a font I had recently installed and was sprinkled throughout my text. PWSERIFSCRATCH. I removed this font from my text. And still crashes/freeze continued....Ooops, missed two spots. Once all instances of this font were removed from the text box I was working on that spread through 10 pages, the freezing stopped. All is good now. I still reflexively hit CTRL+S every few seconds, but so far it has been working fine. Some thoughts....On a good day, Publisher uses 2GB of memory. Not even Chrome uses this much memory. When it crashes, it seems to be over 2.6GB of memory. Perhaps the font control is working overtime and runs up the memory until my Win10 Microsoft Surface i7-7660 2.5GHz with 8.00GB Memory. Can Publisher be engineered to use less memory?
  13. How make brtush works like daub spatula? grabs partly its colour from what i allready have. i want do my own brushes sometimes work same way even Designer i think paint mixer brush does in Photo. they have in affinity designer symbol what i post here. these premade brushes work this way but i can set any brush work this way. i checked manual no luck and i cannot add this tool to tool bar. really wanted use affinity designer for art. transfering files to program x to program y is silly. and missing such tool funny when designer is made for more art and photo more modifing and correcting photos. i post feature request if this dont found somewhere where i dont know.

  15. I have noticed that after I installed a font bundle I purchased (http://www.kimberlygeswein.com/), Affinity Designer in Windows 1.8.5.5703 started freezing on color selection (dragging the full color spectrum selector) and just creating rectangles and such. The app will slow down or freeze and then draw the rectangles or allow to change the color. I immediately removed all the fonts I installed, and the problem went away. I have a intel i7 10700K with 32GB ram, M.2 1TB SSD main HD and AMD 5700XT GPU.

  17. Hi All I have had Affinity Photo for a long time but not really had time to get into it in a big way but now that I have retired I have the time on my hands to play with it. I can do little bits to make my photos look better by using the Tutorial. I'm also doing my family Tree and I have lots of old photos that I would like to add to the tree but most of them are not in good condition like the one I have attach to this post. So my question is is it possible to do anything with photos like this or not? if it is possible can anyone point me in the wright direction please. Thank you for your help Andrew
  18. Windows 10 Home 2004, Designer 1.9.0.734 (all drivers up-to-date). Watch the video to see what happens. With OpenCL acceleration switched OFF everything looks fine. However, after switching OpenCL acceleration switched ON, I get some very strange things happening. 2020-09-19_08-47-52.mp4 I've attached a screengrab of my preferences dialog. (Video is from external monitor but laptop screen shows the same issue.) I've also attached the file for testing purposes. parallelogram.afdesign I’ve attached another video showing the same problem when manipulating a simple rectangle. 2020-09-19_09-26-29.mp4
  19. Please optimize the ComboBox size. For example, the Context Toolbar of the Paint Brush Tool, where the maximum possible values are entered. As you can see, the ComboBoxes are unnecessarily large, which in turn removes the available space in the Context Toolbar so that it does not fit all the necessary items. P.S. Although in this case, "Protect Alpha" would certainly fit without ComboBox optimization.
  20. Hi Forum! I'm changing from Mac to Windows in a few weeks and would like to change all my software so it works with the windows system. I was wondering if there is any way of switching my Mac Affinity purchases and simply change it to be a Windows key. I won't really be using my mac so I won't need the mac key anymore (this is where the "is that even possible? Or is a activated key already 'locked' " question arises). I understand that I can't have the program on both my Mac and my Windows and that this would need to be two separate keys, but in this case I'm thinking of completely switching. I also want to say that I love the Affinity program and don't really have a huge problem paying for a second set for windows. I'm simply asking in-case there is a way of doing this? Thank you for your replies Kind regards Therese
  21. Affinity Photo/Designer how convert photo black and white ? way where grayscale values uses only K from CMYK. based what one priting service they talk colour profiles but based what they tell their page i think i use color profile even black and white products. but using only K ink. I use Windows.
  22. Hi everyone - still relatively new to Designer so I don't know if this is an existing feature but I've been unable to find anything online so far. I have wrist issues that make extended mouse use difficult, so I use a pen tool and keyboard as much as possible. Been looking for non-mouse keyboard shortcuts for the scroll function (horizontal and vertical), preferably with a way to customize the precision with which you move, so you can move as much or little as needed with each key stroke in each direction. The latter is nice to have right now--just getting the keyboard functionality would be really helpful for my workflow. I've not been able to find any way to customize scrolling in the Preferences menu, and nothing is listed in the shortcuts cheatsheets that I can find online. Am I out of luck on this one? (I use v.1.8 in Windows on Windows 10, in case that makes a difference.)
  23. Hello, the stroke is very laggy on some brushes (gouaches…) on my Windows machines. What is strange is that given the same canvas resolution on my iPad pro (2018) and MacMini (2018) there is no perceptible lag with se same brushes (& sizes). Is there missing optimization on the Windows version or this a limitation of the renderer on Windows (compared to Metal) ? Demo video (lag @ 0:35) Canvas : print A3 300dpi Window 10 Laptop 32GB RAM : CPU: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-8750H CPU @ 2.20GHz, 2201 Mhz, 6 Core(s), 12 Logical Processor(s) GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 with Max-Q Design Screen res: 1920 x 1080 x 60 hertz Windows 10 Desktop 32GB RAM: CPU : Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4770K CPU @ 3.50GHz, 3501 Mhz, 4 Core(s), 8 Logical Processor(s) GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 Ti Screen res: 3840 x 2160 x 59 hertz
  24. So I'm reaching the point of delivering work to the client and need to export to a different drive. I just changed the parent path in a bunch of files and clicked Export Slices and promptly found a new folder called "D" which contained all the exports. I was trying to export to "D:\Dropbox\..." and found the new folder contained a subfolder called Dropbox. On closer examination I find that the path in the parameters section of the slices wasn't as I'd entered it. The colon after the drive letter was omitted. As this was a copy and paste step I knew that it had been entered correctly. After a bit of searching on here I find that this has been discussed before but no resolution proposed. From a UI/UX perspective I've always believed that code should never change the data that a user enters without letting them know that it has happened and why. In other instances this edit box changes the text to red when things aren't quite right but doesn't prevent the text being entered - although still doesn't explain why. e.g. A full stop/period (or two) in Windows is a valid (relative) path. I know I could use links to make this work but I really shouldn't have to. I'm guessing that this is a problem due to the Mac centric development of the application where colons are outlawed in file and pathnames. I'm hoping that because this has been raised before that it is on the roadmap (although I can no longer find that to check). Any chance of any feedback on whether this is likely to be addressed?
