  1. Hey, I was trying to export the attached file to psd from affinity photo and designer, and for some reason the export progress bar does not move at all. My flatmate tried to export it on his laptop, and it also did not work, but exporting from publisher had some progress before an error accured. (Both my flatmate and me are on macOS, all programs up to date.) Would be thankful for any help and ideas. mystical_archive.zip

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. Done in Affinity Photo with several stocks from DeviantArt, Pexels, Pixabay, Unsplash. Just to get better with Affinity Photo . Any suggestions or opinions can be welcomed.
  5. If the PDF was placed in the document using Version 1.8 or earlier and is embedded rather than linked, the original PDF data will not be available. The solution is to Replace the document in Version 1.9 using Resource Manager. Version 1.9 ensures that for any PDF that is placed as embedded a copy of the original PDF data is included in the document to enable Passthrough if desired.
  6. 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
  7. Hi, all. The keyboard shortcuts provided for organizing objects from front to back cannot work on a French keyboard. The reason for this is that in French-speaking countries, keyboards are much more complete than in English-speaking countries. The characters [ and ] are then obtained by the combination of the keys : [ = Alt Gr + 5 ] = Alt Gr + ° One solution is to use the key combinations (also much more logical): Object backwards (vers l'arrière) = Ctrl + Flèche bas Object forwards (vers l'avant) = Ctrl + Flèche haut Object all the way back (derrière tout) = Ctrl + Shift +Flèche bas Object all the way forward (devant tout) = Ctrl + Shift + Flèche haut Have enjoy.
  8. After I updated Affinity Suites on my PC from 1.85 to 1.90, I can no longer start the programs. It only shows the splash image for a couple of seconds. Then nothing happened after that. My update process was successful. I have manually update my display/Graphics driver and checked other potentially issues posted in the forum here, but none of them worked. I am attaching these files: log.txt (after issuing %AppData%\Affinity\Publisher\1 ), Setup.log and SetupUI.log (after issuing %TEMP%\AffinitySetup a dmp file (after issuing %AppData%\Affinity\Publisher\1.0\CrashReports) When I uninstalled the new version 1.90 and reinstalled the old version 1.85, they still work. But when I update them, same thing as above happened again. Basically I cannot run the new version. Any inside help is highly appreciatded.

  9. Congratulations to the whole Affinity team with the launch of 1.9 and the introduction of so many new features I'm thankful to all those who have contributed with feedback for the Affinity apps, and to the Affinity team who takes our suggestions and concerns into consideration when working out each new update. It means a lot to the community - I'm certain about that. Focusing on Affinity Designer, many of us have been asking numerous times about a feature similar to the off-set path in Adobe Illustrator. Finally, Affinity has not only fulfilled this, but added a complete tool for the purpose. In my opinion, the contour tool could even be better packed with features than the one in Illustrator. Good work! It's worth to mention the new option to link images in the document in Designer and Photo, instead of embedding everything. A feature in Publisher that many have requested to be implemented in the rest of the apps. Now it is! I like how Affinity sets a major focus specifically on the performance of their apps. Hardware acceleration is important not only for those with powerful machinery, but also for those with rather decent computers who need to utilize their computing power to the fullest. Update 1.9 didn't miss that. These are some of the newly introduced features with the latest update that I'm happy to see. I'm sure many will find these improvements productive in their workflows and that Affinity will continue with the good work. Nice and steady, keep it up! Thanks to the team for the continuous help they offer to people struck by the Pandemic with the 90-day trial and 50% off on the whole creative suite. Wishing everyone a nice weekend and a happy new year with a slight delay! Cheers!
  10. The 1.9 updates added the ability to register your Affinity apps and sync content, purchased from the Affinity Store, directly into Affinity apps . You can find more information about registering your Affinity app and content syncing here and here Please note: If you're using a Mac you will need to be using macOS Sierra 10.12 or above for this feature to work. If you're using a non-supported version of macOS, you will need to manually download and install content purchased from the Affinity Store. More information can be found under the How to install content from the web section here
  11. Has anybody used the Affinity and Adobe suites in the same work environment? I wondering about compatibilities when going back and forth with files. Ex: AD exporting to .psd, etc. Thanks
  12. When making curved strokes using any brush with it’s rotation dynamic tied to pen angle I am experiencing a glitch with the stroke as the pen passes from being angled up to being angled down. It does not happen when drawing in the opposite direction (bottom to top). In the video I demonstrate the problem with the built in Calligraphic Marker brush and the Fluid Chisel Tip brush but the problem also occurs with custom solid brushes. While I discovered this bug on my iPad in Designer I also experienced it in Photo as well as the Mac version of both using a Wacom tablet. IMG_0036.MOV
  13. Hello to all, When you select a row of pages, for example from page 7 to page 32, and on this selection you want to apply for a master page only to the even pages or the odd pages, you cannot. This master page is applied to all the even or odd pages of the document. I worked on a book of 210 pages in 15 chapters where the page headings took each time the title of the current chapter. Instead of 15 manipulations (1 per chapter), I had to perform 220 manipulations (1 per page). Hence the suggestion. Have a nice day, and protect yourself well.
  14. When CTRL and ALT is pressed together, it is now Left-Click to cycle between properties, or Left-Drag to change properties' value. Honestly, both of these are binding to Left button makes me confused. Sometimes I draw, and want to change brush size for next stroke just a little. And that's it: The program judges that the moving distance of the cursor is not enough so what I've done is Click but not Drag. Then it cycles. My suggestion is as below: 1.Change the button bindings to Right-Click for properties cycling. 2.Make Drag immediately and more sensitive. Thanks.
  15. First of all I wanted to say thank you for your amazing products. After trying your apps I can no longer use other design apps. It would be very cool to have another application in the Serif StudioLink specifically for design and prototyping. Affiinty Designer is so cool but it has no function for prototyping and animation. Thanks for attention)
  16. I placed a vector AD file into my APub project and the Resource Manager is telling me the dpi is 79 even though the AD dpi setting is 300. How do I get APub to use 300 dpi for this file? Thank you!
  17. If you're having performance related issues with Affinity apps on macOS Big Sur and you're using a gaming mice, Intellimouse or other high-end input device, you could be experiencing the issue described here:
  18. Bug in zoom % refresh in context.bar ... I send a little video It occurs with or w/o scrubby zoom It occurs in Photo, but also in Designer and Publisher (videos for all three), is seems to be the same bug in the same procedure Emilio error_afphoto.mp4 error_zoom_afdesign.mp4 error_zoom_afpub.mp4
  19. UPDATE: This issue is now resolved in the 1.9.0 update which is now available from the Affinity Store and Microsoft Store. We've had reports that our apps no longer start after installing the Windows 10 October 2020 (20H2) update. This update is changing the default Device profile in Colour Management to a Virtual profile. If you see the below information in Application Logs in Event Viewer after trying to start our apps, go to Colour Management > Advanced > Windows Colour System Defaults and change the Device profile from scRGB virtual device model profile to sRGB IEC61966-2.1 Description: The process terminated due to an unhandled exception. Exception information: System.ArithmeticException Exception information: System.OverflowException at System.Windows.Media.Imaging.ColorConvertedBitmap.FinalizeCreation () at System.Windows.Media.Imaging.BitmapImage.FinalizeCreation () at System.Windows.Media.Imaging.BitmapImage.EndInit () at Serif.Affinity.ResourceManager.GetBitmapSourceCore (System.String) at Serif.Affinity.UI.AboutDialog..ctor (Boolean) at Serif.Affinity.Application.RunSingleInstance () at Photo.Application.Main (System.String []) Once changed, the app should run as expected.
  20. Hello, since I have updated my Affinity Suite (Designer, Photo and Publisher) to version 1.8.3 ALL default shortcuts don't work. NO CTRL+C, CTRL+V, CTRL+S .... nothing. Please assist as soon as possible. Working with Affinity Suite is currently no fun . Regards, Henning
  21. After updating to macOS Big Sur you may notice that ICC profiles stored in ~/Library/ColorSync/Profiles/ are no longer available in Affinity apps. This issue has been logged with our developers. Please Note: If you're using Affinity Photo you can use File > Import ICC Profile to import your ICC profile into the app. If you're using Affinity Designer or Affinity Publisher, you can manually add these profiles into the app through finder. Please navigate to the below location, depending on app and install source - Affinity Store version: Affinity Designer: ~/Library/Application Support/Affinity Designer/user/ Affinity Publisher: ~/Library/Application Support/Affinity Publisher/user/ Mac App Store version ( Big Sur ) : Affinity Designer: ~/Library/Containers/Affinity Designer/Data/Library/Application Support/profiles/ Affinity Publisher: ~/Library/Containers/Affinity Publisher/Data/Library/Application Support/profiles/ Once added to this location, restart the Affinity app and you should find the profiles available.
  22. If you have macOS Big Sur or macOS Catalina you may notice that our apps are taking 20+ secs to launch after starting your Mac from cold or after rebooting your Mac. However, subsequent launches should be fine. This issue has been logged with our developers but a workaround can be found here.
  23. 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
  24. I am currently making a weekly planner using affinity publisher and it is freezing a lot. for example if I simply scroll up or down it might freeze or if I click on something it will freeze for 2 or 3 seconds. It isnt really a problem until I am moving things around then it freezes A LOT. I have checked the specs of my laptop and it is more than capable of handling publisher, I also use affinity designer on a daily basis and it does not have any such problems even with multiple applications open. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thank you.
