  2. Hi, Channel packing method in Affinity photo is a bit hacky please make it easier to implement (i.e. copy and paste mask directly into the channel). Also, I cant seem to export a tga file with an alpha channel. I use channel packing heavily for creating RGBA masks/textures for UE4. Thanks, Iby

For the macOS release, in the application main menu there is an option "Check for Updates". Alternatively, 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. Updates are installed automatically (or manually by installing the new version over the old) Previous builds do not need uninstalling first. New installations of paid software downloaded from the Affinity Store requires a product key and email pair to use. Software downloaded from the Mac App Store, Microsoft Store and iPad store do not require a product key and are updated through the relevant store: If you’ve purchased from the Mac App Store— updates are done automatically next time you run your software after it is available in the Mac App Store. However, you do need to be logged in with the same Apple ID you used to buy them. If this does not happen for you, open the Mac App Store app and go to the Updates page and then Store > Reload page or press CMD+R. This should hopefully force the update to show. Apple sometimes phase roll outs around the world which can mean it may take up to 72 hours for your update to be available. 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. If you’ve purchased from the Pad Store— Your Affinity iPad apps should update automatically next time you run them. However, you do need to be logged in with the same Apple ID you used to buy them. If the automatic update does not happen for you, go to the iPad Store app and go to Updates. Once you’re there, tap near the top of the screen where it states 'Updates' and then hold, pull down and then release. This should manually refresh the updates page. However, don’t contact us if the updates are not available for you yet—Apple sometimes phase roll outs around the world and this can take up to 24 hours. ---------- This thread is locked and will only be posted to by Serif Staff as the released versions change.

  4. Please consider adding QR Code Generator like in PagePlus to the trio or at least as plugin...
  5. Along with the width, height and square size variables available in the path components panel in Export Persona, a position variable would be great. In general I believe making Export Persona more customizable through scripting or similar could prove immensely powerful.
  6. Hi! I noticed that the font-rendering of the ui is broken on my external monitor (2560x1600) in comparison to my retina display of the macbook pro. It shows on the screenshots. I wasn't able to find a solution in the forums or on google since most people have problems with the rendering of the fonts in their designs. Is there a workaround or setting I can change? Or maybe it's a bug and you can fix it. Btw: The behaviour is the same in all Affinity apps. Broken rendering on external monitor. Good rendering on retina display of macbook pro
  7. hello, i have used affinity suite almost for 2 months, but i really found a very big vacuum , it is just a shape builder tool,a lot of designers told you that includes me,so can you add it or just tell us that you have a plan to add it in the future ? because i am really finding a big problems working with logos using AD , even of that AD is specialized on designing logos,and i am sure that many designer if not all are facing the same problem ,so please try to make it the main plan for AD , because it is the only thing that me and a lot of designer need that fast,i am facing a lot of issues using the basic geometric operations,until i really forgot it because it became useless most times,i really appreciate your efforts for developing such as this great software,but we really need the shape builder tool as soon as possible,finally,this is one of 100000 problems that always facing me using geometric operation,thanks Desktop 2020.07.09 - t.
  8. ***Affinity feature requests*** * Global Gradient Swatches. Are they this hard to implement in affinity software...it's been 3 years alomst and the top design app for mac still doesnt support global gradient swatches, why is that? * Dynamic Styles. Yes, a workaround for this is using a symbol but having a dynamic style instead of using a Symbol can be used in many areas, means, i can implement a dynamic style with shadows and glow to a circle, a rectangle, a polygon...while having ability to manipulate and watch effects like shadows taking change on multiple objects in real time. You get the idea, right? Specially for Ui/Ux designers. * Symbol lock (Sometimes we end up making changes to symbols only to zoom out and realizing those changes impact symbols on the entire page. Hence a special symbol locking mechanism would be very welcomed where we can lock symbols so that they can be moved and resized but cannot be modified or implement changes to their appearances) * Shape builder tool (We all know it how much us designers are craving for this handy dandy boolean operation tool. come on team serif * Shape Blend tool (least priority but essential tool) * Mirroring tool (I get the idea to use symbols as workaround for mirroring but wont a separate tool make tasks a lot easier for logo/graphic designer?) * Functionality to add more Api within Affinity software to grab assets from websites, just like unsplash is currently supported.

  9. Affinity apps are designed to use both CPU and GPU to process and render on screen. Overall performance will differ from system to system due to differences in hardware and available system resources. The OS can also play a part in how well an app will perform, always ensure that no matter which of our supported operating systems you have installed that it is fully up to date with all available updates. You can also check to make sure that the system is also running the latest video card drivers. There are several options listed in Preferences > Performance that can be adjusted to increase the performance of Affinity apps on your system. They are: RAM usage: By default it’s set to the amount of RAM your system has, some users have reported getting better performance by adjusting this slider. However we do have conflicting feedback , some report increased performance when lowering and others when increasing this by small increments. Display/Renderer: (On screen rendering only) Mac users: Ideally this wants to be set to Metal if available, if you do encounter any issues try setting it to OpenGL. Windows users: Like above this ideally wants to be set to the primary graphics card installed in your system. Also check with your video card manufacturer to ensure you have the latest drivers available. If you are experiencing crashing when creating documents, panoramas etc, try changing this to WARP. Hardware acceleration (macOS only): Most modern Macs will have Metal compute available and this should be enabled. However if you do experience issues it’s worth turning off and comparing performance. View Quality: Try reducing View Quality from Bilinear to Nearest Neighbour. Retina Rendering: Try reducing Retina Rendering from Automatic to Low Quality (fastest). Please note: Some performance issues can relate to individual files or resources used within your particular document. In these cases we prefer a copy of the file, if possible, for testing - once testing is complete any files will be deleted. Start-up times: It's not something we have a lot of control over, however our apps do load fonts during opening. If you have a lot of fonts installed this will have an effect on the apps opening time and it may be worth reducing the amount of installed fonts.
  10. Hello affinity community, i work on photos creating vectors from the colors of the photo. Super cool effects. Eventually i find lots of palette's get accumulated in swatches. Any way to delete mass palette??? rather than one by one Thanks.
  11. I would really appreciate if there was a menu item in the Layers panel that would allow one to collapse all layers/artboards.
  12. Please support the new Loupedeck CT device https://loupedeck.com/en/products/loupedeck-CT in your application suite. There is even an SDK available for application integration. https://loupedeck.com/en/developer Thank you all for your fine suite, Simon

  14. Hello , any one knows how can i do this color harmony ? I want to know how can i creat this , i saw a vedio on youtube but it was with photoshop , so anyone knows how to do this with affinity photo or designer ? Thanks Vedio link :
  15. I'm trying to find a way to warp drop shadows in Affinity. In Craft Artist there is a tool that created a simple drop shadow (left image on both examples), and sliders that can warp the shadow so some parts of the object are closer to the page than other parts (right image in both examples). I know how to use the Layer Effects in Afffinity to create the simple drop shadow. How to I create the warped shadow in Affinity? Bothe xamples below are done using Craft Artist.

  19. I've just tested the new release (1.8.3). Until you address this issue of printer colour profiles, the entire Affinity Suite is not sufficient for the production and printing of documents in certain situations like mine. Even when the export is a priori done correctly (AD or APh), the profile settings are not taken into account (see overinking as an example below, should not be higher than 280%). It's still a shame that this problem is not considered with more enthusiasm. P.
  20. Android tablet getting pretty good. And there is no combination in it if you add the affinity suite. There is no full creative apps in Android it would be amazing if we could have apps like the affinity suite. Thanks and I hope y'all think about it
  21. Hello, As I was working I noticed that the dropdown appears on the opposite side when I hover over it ? I was just wondering why is it not appearing on the right side ? It causes a bit of confusion. Thank you, Weird_Dropdown_Behavior.mp4
  22. After launching the app you may notice the app's Welcome screen is missing content and the Affinity logo is displayed instead. This can be caused by your firewall blocking the app from connecting to the internet. If you've temporarily disabled your firewall or added our apps to your firewall's whitelist, please try the advice from @carl123 mentioned here:
  23. My first ever digital scrapbooking pages were done using Serif Pageplus, and then I moved into Serif's Scrapbooking Software which evolved inot Craft Artist. My children and I have been using Craft Artist for years. However it's crashing and freezing a lot, with the problems getting worse with successive Windows 10 updates. So I decided to try out the Affinity free Trail in April. This is my journey learning to scrapbook in Affinity so far: First go - using Affinity Photo. Scrapbooking with Affinity Photo is much more clunky than using Craft Artist, and took at least twice as long. The text tools are too basic for my needs. On a plus note, the psd template imported well. My page created in Affinity Photo using a psd scrapbooking template. https://the-lilypad.com/forum/galleries/royal-memories.431453/ Second go - using Affinity Publisher Scrapbooking with Affinity Publisher is fairly straight forward and is done in a similar way as with Craft Artist. The text tool power is stronger than Craft Artist's, but it can't edit or create graphics. However, it can borrow functionality from Affinity Photo and Designer to accomplish that stuff, which is why I'm looking at the complete suite. This page is done in Publisher using the "Photo Persona" to edit the colours in some of the elements. https://the-lilypad.com/forum/galleries/psalm-24.431470/ Using Designer to create a template I used Affinity Designer to create a template for this page with intersecting shapes. I had a go at text on a path too. https://the-lilypad.com/forum/galleries/spring.431552/ Drawing & Painting I've been testing out the drawing and painting tools today, and drew and painted the balloon on this art journaling page https://the-lilypad.com/forum/galleries/balloon.431571/ Using a ready made Photo Mask Today's task for Affinity is masking - seems to work fine. I'm still getting the hang of basic drop shadows. The parameters used in the dialog box are different to those used in Craft Artist. Not worked out how to do fancy shadows yet https://the-lilypad.com/forum/galleries/free-food.431614/ How about a 2 pager? My first go at attempting a 2 pager with the Affinity Suite. It's not as easy to line everything up working on 2 separate pages as it is in Craft Artist. However, Affinity doesn't freeze, struggle with large file sizes or crash on me like Craft Artist does increasingly more with every Windows 10 update. So next time I'll try working on it as one large page instead of 2 side by side pages. https://the-lilypad.com/forum/galleries/april-birthday-2-pager.432101/ Pre-flight Checks I do like the "pre-flight checks" function in Affinity Publisher. When I exported the page I was working on it told me I had spelt something wrong, and had text outside my text box, and suggested fixing it before exporting the document. Recolouring digital stamps/brushes I've learnt how to use the Colour Overlay effect to recolour stamps and brushes, and I've has some more vector drawing practice too. https://the-lilypad.com/forum/galleries/find-peace.433188/ Creating a blending Mask With the Photo Persona I used the Oval Selection tool with a feather of 150px to create a mask for blending the photo in this page. Everything else was done in Publisher https://the-lilypad.com/forum/galleries/blending.433328/ I'm getting quite comfortable now with using Affinity Publisher as my main scrapbooking software, using the Photo or Designer Personas as needed. I now have the option of using psd templates which did not work in Craft Artist. Using psd templates requires me to start with Affinity Photo instead of Publisher. But when I want to add any fancy text I can close the document and reopen it in publisher without any difficulties or need to export/import first. I think I'm going to talk with hubby about purchasing on the 50% off offer that is currently still running.
  24. Each Affinity software has alignment option which is great. But it'd be much better if we can have a separate panel for it which we can dock anywhere as we wish. Currently we've to click on the alignment icon each and every time when we need it, and that's kind of boring. What do you think friends?
