  1. I apologize if this has already been posted (either I'm doing something wrong, or the search function in the forums is very limited), but the "Vector Crop Tool" is not listed in any of the menus. My biggest gripe about this is that I can't even assign an external keyboard shortcut (through the Mac System Preferences) for this tool.
  2. Hello, I'm having trouble exporting a design from the Beta version to the stable version. Copying and pasting doesn't work. Making a new file from clipboard doesn't work. Exporting to SVG or EPS resulted in many many issues, such as raster shapes, wrong shapes, etc. Is this a Beta limitation or am I doing something wrong?
  3. I'm trying to make some organic shapes with custom/random stroke dashes, upon expansion I get this messy fills: Before: After Stroke dash settings: 0 2 44 2
  4. Windows 10 Home (1803), Designer I have created multiple artboards in the same document and added some construction items. When I add more than ten construction items of any type, one item of the same type goes missing from the same - or another - artboard. See attached GIF for a working example where you can watch them disappear. I'm guessing that this isn't a deliberate design decision as it really limits the functionality.
  5. Hello Everyone, Well, i maybe missing something but i can't Zoom in and Out on ADesigner since the last beta install. Tried to reset stuffs in there but nothing does... Well it is something i use a lot on projects ... like i said maybe i'm missing something here on how to get it working again. Please instruct me and if it is a Bug of the new beta, please advice for a workaround. Blessings !
  6. WIndows 10 Home (1803), Designer A cog shape, when rotated doesn't seem to be rotated/skewed/sheared (or whatever) properly when fitted to an Isometric plane. See attached image where the top-left example is a non-rotated cog over a same sized square and the bottom-left example is a rotated cog over a same sized square. The examples on the right are the examples on the left after fitting to a Top Isometric plane. Notice that the bottom-right cog is the wrong shape. I think you can guess what the exact workflow to reproduce is but I have attached the afdesign file. Try duplicating the two left-hand-bottom shapes and placing them on the Top Isometric plane. If you have both shapes selected together they are placed correctly, but if you try and place them separately the cog comes out wrong; the attached GIF also shows the problem.
  7. WIndows 10 Home (1803), Designer I've just noticed that a thick dashed stroke doesn't seem to be rotated/skewed/sheared (or whatever) properly when fitted to an Isometric plane. See attached image where the versions are - from left to right - fitted to Top, Side, and Front (afdesign document also attached). Notice the shapes of the ends of the dashes; they don't fit with the rectangle. Workflow to reproduce: * New document; * Create black rectangle; * Create thick dashed line, with a butt or square cap (so it's easier to see); * Put dashed line within the rectangle layer; * Open Isometric studio (and create grid if necessary); * Select the Top plane; * Press "Fit to plane". dotted stroke on isometric plane.afdesign
  8. Hello guys, Thanks for developing this nice application. I have some issues merging stacked images from "new stack" option. I try merge 20 images and it doesn't start doing anything even after 15 minutes, but the RAM usage is over 30 GB, all JPGs only. Force quitting program from task manager is the only way to solve it. The stacking in any of the menu options takes too long in stable or BETA, almost 5 minute just for a simple stack process. I also have issues with Panorama and HDR stacking like in previous stable edition. Aligning HDR brackets will sometime lock to skies and move the landscape, you know how that story ends. The HDR noise reduction removes important details and replace them with big artifacts or just massive blotches of black/nothing. The "tonemapping" function - or your RAW converter - have a long way to go. I get the cringe every time I need to go in there, and the results I get can easily get better surpassed by cellphone apps. It feels like I'm pushing a JPG every time I'm in that converter and not a RAW file, the details instantly clip to black using "black point" setting, but you did some magic with the latest "highlight" and "shadow" slider, it feels better. Worst part is the crazy lagg I get from pushing any of the sliders, mouse and system freeze for seconds before slider jumps to "next" spot, even freeze my Spotify playing. This is a 12 core Threadripper 4 GHz with 32 GB RAM, 1080 Ti and NVMe SSDs, so it should be able to handle a basic RAW converter, I got CaptureOne Pro v11 and no problem there with a lot more tools and stuff. I don't find any way to tune the Panorama merge function like in PtGui, I wish it had more options like that program. I don't know if it is possible to tweek the perspective after the merge, but there should be more features while having the image as layers, thats when you got the most power to fix things. There is one function I miss from PS CC and I hope you can add similar function, because this is invaluable when using a Wacom tablet like I do. Just FYI, I replace mouse buttons on my pen, so this works great for me: In brush tool (PS CC), hold (Left Alt), Hold (Right mouse click), move mouse up and down to change size of any brush tool. Move mouse side to side to change the hardness. Don't take the critic too hard, I know you're not Adobe and I probably won't get any of the things I'm asking for, but I hope you guys spend more time on the features above. The stacking features and RAW converter/tonemapping should really be top priority for you to fix. I just left Adobe but I feel forced to go buy PtGui because this stacking you got going on never works for me. Best regards Aleksander
  9. Hej from Sweden! I would like to start a project on Publisher beta and plan to buy the final once released. Is anyone aware if the final will be fully compatible with the beta? I dont want to loose files ;)
  10. Well ! The title says it all, Affinity Publisher is missing/lacking of the essential Export Persona. On a workflow like mine where i use Affinity Photo to process everything pixel, Designer to Process everything Vector and make them all converge to Affinity Publisher for project finalization. So, 80% of my exports happens there because Affinity Publisher does it better when it have to print stuffs ! Please bring a shiny but powerful export persona to Publisher.
  11. Hi there, Filter / Live-Filter "Clarity" does not work properly. Also the values are now displayed in % and not in px. Best regards Puck iMac mid 2010, High Sierra
  12. Hello dear Dev's Just want to notify that the Recolor Adjustment makes the latest version of affinity Designer to crash. Applied a simple brush on a layer with black color and tried to simply recolor the art on that layer using a recolor adjustment but the minute i moved the the first handle it just crashed the software. Did someone noticed the same thing ?
  13. Hi there, the latest beta version crashes when you copy multiple Live filter layers from one file to another via the clipboard. iMac mid 2010, High Sierra Best regards Puck
  14. When searching for existing threads relating to a recent issue I encountered - to see if I wasn't repeating someone else's issue - I found myself trawling through threads relating to old Beta versions going back a few years. (There are currently 76 pages of threads in this forum, the majority of which probably won't be relevant to the current Beta.) Would it be possible to have the threads relating to the current Beta in their own separate forum to make it easier to find stuff related to the current Beta release? A possible structure could be as follows: Affinity Designer Beta Forums (current Beta only) - Designer Beta 1.7 on Windows - Designer Beta 1.7 on Mac - etc. Archived Designer Beta Forums (all previous Betas) - Archived Designer Beta on Windows - Archived Designer Beta on Mac - etc. This would make it much easier for people to search for issues in the current Beta and, therefore, allow people to see if an issue has already been submitted which would also give the support staff less work to do reading duplicate posts.
  15. It took me a while to figure out how to use (at a basic level) the new construction features - piecing together bits and bobs from different (Mac version) posts - and the new Isometric features are not easy for me to understand as I've not used that sort of thing before. Would it be possible for someone to write a small - pinned - thread somewhere that would tell people how the new features should work? It's difficult to know if something is working right - or if you're using it right - if you don't know what it's supposed to be for or how it's supposed to work. It doesn't have to be perfect or lengthy, just a nudge in a few good directions would be enough to get people started. I realise that this will all come in the Help in time, but some early adopters may find it very useful to know what the official line is rather than maybe picking up the wrong idea from disparate posts by other users (who may not know all of the details, especially early on).
  16. Windows 10, Build 178. When I switch personas - doesn't seem to matter between which ones - the document zooms in a little. See attached GIF.
  17. I've been using Inkscape for a while and the way that guides work there is super easy and I'm struggling with setting up the correct guides in Affinity (or maybe the full functionality is just not obvious for new users?). I don't seem to be able to drag the guides to correct small errors due to manual calculations. It looks as if I'm only able to setup guides based on an exact measure or a percentage. It's suggested that the user is able to create and move guides simply by placing their mouse cursor on the rulers (both horizontal and vertical) and dragging it to where they want to place it. It is not necessary to open up any menu or go into a function with everything possible on the displayed desktop. Deleting the guides is as simple as dragging it off the page. What would be even better than Inkscape is the ability to lock the guide positions. For example click on a small lock on the ruler next to the guide. Attached a sample of the Inkscape functionality.
  18. Hi all, If I create my documents with Affinity Publisher Beta, will I be able to open them in the official paid version of Affinity Publisher once it gets released? I really like to get starting with Publisher but I also know that I have to be cautious since I am dealing with beta software For now I want to design my own stationary papers that will be send digitally only. However I am afraid that I have to recreate them if the .afpub file structure changes in the official release. Best regards, Christiaan
  19. I'm totally new to Affinity and super excited to see what I downloaded! It really looks awesome. I tried to search for existing issues and can't find any, hope I'm not duplicating or missing something obvious. Please be kind while I learn... Bug description and expected results: When I attempt to open an SVG file created in Inkscape (without converting text to curves / paths) the images are all imported correctly, however all the text is missing. I attempted to look at the help file and it shows a table of formats that can be imported and svg is displayed so I'm expecting that the import should: - Either be successful with all my images and text boxes correctly imported and displayed. - Or an appropriate error message is displayed telling me there was issues with the import (if any) and hopefully how to fix it. - Help available to explain if there are any constraints / prerequisites / workflow that I must follow for a successful import. Actual results: - Only images are imported. No text. - No error message is displayed. - Help gives no guidelines how to resolve the issue. Attached are 3 files as supporting documents - 1. Expected result with a png version of the flyer as it should look like. 2. Actual result with a screendump of what I'm seeing. 3. The svg file I'm trying to upload. I'm using a 64 bit Windows 10 machine. herbalife-v1.svg
  20. Hey everyone, I am working on converting our Adobe compatible products from RetroSupply Co. into Affinity compatible products. I am just now understanding that the vector brushes do not work in the same way that vector brushes do in Illustrator. I see that the native vector Affinity brushes are just raster images that follow a vector path. What I need help deciding is if our Adobe Illustrator brushes will be usable (and desired) in Affinity or if we should scrap the vector looking brushes and just make them with raster images. I could really use the help of some of you who illustrate with Affinity every day! Your input would be really valuable. I've attached a beta version of InkWash- our vector water color brushes. You will see some of them are named "InkWash Vector #" and others are named "InkWash Raster #". Which do you prefer the look of? Vector or Raster? You will see that the "vector" titled ones have a more traditional vector look (as they are coming from Adobe Illustrator). I am trying to decide just converting what we have is sufficient or if we should remake the textures as raster before making them into Affinity vector brushes. I really appreciate any input! Thank you! -Suzanne InkWash Beta by RetroSupply.afbrushes
  21. When I am in a text frame, and I'm at the beginning of a line, and I press command + delete the program instantly crashes every time. It's as simple as that. I'm using High Sierra on a Mid 2014 MacBook Pro.
  22. Hi, First of all I am really looking forward to using the finished publisher. I was an avid user of PagePlus and must have had more than eight versions over the years. One feature that I would find really handy would be the option to insert/place an image into a document, then select a colour to appear transparent. For example, if you insert a pic of a dog with a solid white background, you could click a 'Select transparent colour' dropper and click on the white background of the pic, leaving a dog image for the text to have a Tight Wrap around my image. Is this going to be an available option or manipulate the pic by using the Photo Persona? (I have Affinity Photo). Thanks Andy
  23. See video attached. When altering the tracking on a selection of body, the tracking resets back to 0% as soon as you click back into the text box. AffinityPublisherBeta-1.70.57-MacOSMojave-TrackingReset.m4v

  25. The Affinity apps (Betas as well) keep crashing when I try to launch them. Reinstalation doesn't help. Comunicate says "An Unhandled Exception has occurred and the application cannot continue. The Crash Reporter will be displayed after the application exits. Reference: 04e7ea36-e33f-4e47-8cbf-dbe4ce9928bb But every time i try to open the app again, reference changes. Here are a few examples (for Photo): Reference: be65d1a5-d945-4980-89ae-8ac34ff2c1ce Reference: 8d18b674-e518-44fe-83eb-ced633e2edad Reference: 458ef731-9fee-4521-8303-bfe4335b73d3 Solutions suggested on other similar forum topics don't work for me. I would appreciate your help.
