  1. Hi ... can't find an answer anywhere -- is there a way to batch convert a bunch of photos to rotate them all at once? I just need a 90 degree rotation on a folder full of sideways pics. Thanks in advance for any guidance.
  2. Can you convert from color to grayscale and/or black/white in Affinity Designer and/or Photo? This is very helpful for designing for the very few people who cannot see color in checking for background/foreground contrast.
  3. I use Affinity Photo Mac version. I am a Adobe CC user before. Last month I need to batch convert about 2000 svg icons to PNG with 20 different categories. I tried Illustrator action, failed. I tried Photoshop Image Processing, succeed, but I got blurry PNG files. Then I tried Inkspace, unfortunately, I got the same result wz Photoshop. Then I Googled Affinity Photo and installed a trial version. With the Batch Job feature I finished convert all svg files at last. But it was not easy, I cannot add folders with sub-folders, I had to add 20 times for each folder. Luckily,I got high quality PNG files for svg files. Then I decided to purchase a full version. But soon after I found a problem: This app always miss some files when do Batch Job. It means I have to pick the svg files not converted manually after each converting. Have anyone meet the same problem? How to resolve this? Thanks. My English is poor, hope you will understand.

    Expand stroke incorrect

    Hi I presume that after last update something went really wrong with expanding stroke function. It is completely broken. I have a lot of work to do, but now I just cant do anything. Any help?
  5. Hi folks, anyone noticed the colour change when converting down from 32-bit to 16-bit? Searched the forum for a while and it doesn't come up. I'm working with 32-bit EXR render and at some point you need to convert down to a lower bit depth and when you do any editing on the scene, it changes the colour. Do the same in Photoshop and it stays correct. You can try it with anything: Exposure or Curve to make it visible. Set up the exact same settings in both AP and PS and convert down to 16 bit and then compare both images. Or even just do it in AP. Have your layer stack in full 32 and change the format down to 16 and then switch back and forth to see the difference. I think this is a huge drawback. Whatever is handling the conversion in the background, somethings off. Cheers, Bo
  6. There's a mountain of people out there that would love to be able to convert Microsoft Publisher files to InDesign. Why don't you get the jump on them and a massive audience by making Affinity Publisher able to open or convert those .pub files on Mac. I think the only way to do it at the moment is to save the .pub files as PDFs them open them. Doing it this way nearly all of the subtle editing features are lost but at least you can copy and paste the basic elements. It would be great just to be able to open them in Publisher too.
  7. The functionality to switch between artistic and frame text would be a great addition to Designer... Illustrator's implementation of doing this (double click a specific node on a text object, or right click > convert to...) is a perfect example on how it should be handled. Here's a thread with a whole bunch of other people wanting this as well.
  8. Granted it took Adobe something like 20 years to put this feature into Illustrator, so I'm not expecting this to appear overnight, but is there a way to convert between these two kinds of text types?
  9. Hi, I'm placing an SVG file in Designer and try to convert to curves, but the menu item is disabled. This works perfectly with the same file in PagePlus X9. what am I doing wrong? Greetings, Sigurd
  10. In other DTP applications I've used, sometimes there are fonts that cannot be embedded for whatever reason. The usual reason is because they have copyright/license restrictions, but there are others that don't come to mind at the moment. The other DTP software outlines - converts to vectors - these fonts. I was wondering what Publisher did with fonts like these. Does it outline the text or do something else? I've had a look around the Help, various dialogs, and this forum and can't find anything related to embedding/outlining fonts. Also, on a related note, is there a way to force Publisher to outline either everything in a particular font, or a specific piece of text, or the contents of a specific text frame? I ask this question as I sometimes want to have certain text outlined so that non-human readers can't read the text - e.g. phone numbers, email addresses, etc. In other software I've used a specific font for these items and then told the software to outline everything that uses these fonts. I could manually convert certain items to curves but that's a bit awkward, especially for editing purposes. (Also, sometimes I find that a certain browser/PDF-reader has trouble with a certain fonts when they are embedded so I use outlining for this reason too.)
  11. Since some of us have been using Designer as a sudo publishing app I naturally attempted to transfer/convert my Designer to a Publisher document. Well the good news is you can open the a Designer file straight in publisher the bad news is that's about it. Publisher right now doesn't give any options on how to translate or configure the file. Same goes for when "placing" a document, in particular a designer one, but I'll get to that later. So here are somethings that could be useful: 1. Publisher could give the option to read in all or selected Designer's Art boards as pages.(Preferred) 2. Publisher could give the option to read in all or selected Designer's "Slices" as pages, and or possibly converting the "Slices" feature into a "slices" adaptation in Publisher as well. 3. Publisher could also give the option to read in and convert Designer's vectors into Publishers vector when embedded. 4. Publisher could also give the option to read in and convert Designer's document color palettes into Publishers color palette. As for the placement feature in Publisher: 1. Again give the option to read in all or selected Designer's Art boards(Preferred) or slices as pages. 2. Right now placement adheres to the Publisher's document size which is strange especially when the imported document is larger than Publisher's document size. I don't mind Publisher centering on the upper lefthand corner of the placed document, but it would be useful if it would respect the it's original size and allow it to move/slide it around with in the Publishers adjustment frame. Overall UI features that would be useful.. This may have been covered somewhere, so I'm sorry if it has: 1. Color coding for the layers that's represented in the layers themselves and in the vector lines and frames. 2. A "slices" or layer parsing feature like in Designer. 3 Epub exporting with interactive links. 4. Of course that would mean Interactive links features that would be support in Epub documents. These are possibly forward thinking but not really all that radical in nature especially in this ePub era: 1. This may sound crazy but today I don't think it really is, but maybe have an HTML5 feature or robust implementation and export, which of course would mean. 2. Movie and gif import capabilities or links sourcing links vimeo, youtube, flicker, google maps and the like and so on. 3. Front end for database configurations for sql, filmmaker, excel, numbers and what ever other mainstream databases there are. 4: Password protection and sign in features. 5. Some site analytics feature sourcing and so on. Whatever makes sense. (I used iWeb in the past which was extremely rudimentary, so I think making this sort of leap isn't that far fetched and I believe it would truly cement publisher's title and a true Publishing App) 6. Dashboard or Web Clip exporting. 7. Mobile device configurations/presets and deployments and or exports. 8. Simple Xcode export for UI with some possible simple interactive coding included. 9. ftp site uploading and updating features. Well that's it for now.
  12. Would like to see an option allowing the conversion of Designer files that include multiple Artboards to Publisher Pages. Currently it seems as though all Designer artboards are converted to a single giant page in Publisher. I have built a number of 24 - 60 "page" files using Designer in hopes that Publisher would have some option to see the artboards as pages. Bonus Request: Allow entering "Number of Pages in the New Document dialog, saving a step from going to the "Add Pages" dialog. thanks!
  13. Hi, what is the best way to convert rgb images to cmyk for print with Affinity Photo? Thanks
  14. Hello Is this possible in Affinity Designer? I can't find any settings. Thank you.
  15. Draw a curve and rotate it any degree (screen shot 1), click the reset selection box and it looks great! (Screen shot 2), now convert it into a text frame, type anything and the text will be rotated! (Screen shot 3). I was expecting that after applying the "reset selection tool" button, the curve will keep this property in the future, but it goes back if you convert the curve into a text frame. Perhaps I'm doing something wrong. If there is another way to do it, please let me know, but it will be great if it can work also in this way. Thank you for creating this great software.
  16. hello, new here. I read some topics on conversion from rgb to cmyk but still in doubt... I have done some illustrations for a children book in affinity designer, with ,for some, backgrounds with gradients, text on a path. all in rgb. First time I am working in vectors. The infographist who is assembling everything for the printer ask me to convert to cmyk. I did, reworked the colours that were different and very dulled. when converting I choose, print (press-ready), 300 dpi, cmyk-8 (us web coated swop)V2, transparent background and checked " assign" He asked for a EPS file. When he opened the file, a warning appeared saying that some elements were still in rgb. Did I missed something? I have multi layers with vectors , should I merge them? Apparently, text on a path can be a problem as gradiant, some are from full colour to transparent. thank you very much for your help Benedicte
  17. Okies, so I was basically trying to create an eBook, and now I have 26 Affinity Designer files (of pages) that I would like to convert to a .PDF. Is there any easier way to do this other than to painstakingly convert all of the files separately to a .PDF and merge them in Acrobat? Thanks!
  18. I can convert shapes to curve but I'd like to know if I can convert text to curve as I don't see an option for that in the context menu when I have a text selected. What I'm really trying to do is break up a text so I could put one part of its layer above an object and the other behind the object like the object is going through it. It's actually just the letter S.
  19. Hey everyone! Sometimes, curve operations will create sharp edges on one side of a node and a smooth or smart line on the other side, resulting in only one handle being there. Do you know if there is a way to add a second handle to a node without affecting the one that is already there? I could convert the node to "Smooth" or "Smart", but this will result in changes of the handle that's already present. Best wishes, Shu EDIT: Added a file and image to show the problem. test.afdesign: The original blue shape was drawn over the orange one, so I made nodes close to the orange shape, selected them and clicked "Action" -> "Break Curve", resulting in the four new blue curves (two can be deleted, which I disabled in the file). However, those curves are missing the handles that are required to make the adjustments shown in image.png (pink lines are supposed to be the adjusted outlines of the blue shapes). test.afdesign
  20. Hey guys, yes i know something similar has been asked before but all the other posts I have seen didn't answer my question. I understand that converting RGB to CMYK withhout color differences won't always be possible since the color garmut of RGB is a lot bigger than the one for CMYK. What I don't understand is: If i try to do it the other way (CMYK to RGB) shouldn't it be possible to get the same color in RGB as I have in CMYK? Maybe you can also tell me how you handle it if your client needs a logo in RGB and in CMYK colors and wants them to be similar. Thanks a lot in advance can't wait to hear your replies.

  21. Is there a way to convert a RAW file straight to a DNG file within AP?
  22. Hi there I am on my first project with Affinity Designer. I have got two bitmaps in RGB and want both to be converted when I export my PDF. I tried to export with preset "PDF (for print)" but that file isn't readable in PDF Checkpoint (where I do preflights). I tried preset "PDF X3" and in the "More" settings I checked to set Compatibility to "PDF X3" Color Space to "CMYK" and Profile to "ISO coated v2 300% (ECI)". But the bitmaps stay in RGB after export. Only text and shapes are CMYK.
  23. Hi Affinity Team, I found a blemish when converting a line to curve shape. Can the quality of the conversion be influenced or controlled in any way? This error occurs in AD 1.6.2.97 as well as in the beta 1.6.3.98 version. Curve.afdesign Line.afdesign
  24. Hi guys, I can't seem to figure out what the difference is between CONVERT TO SMOOTH and CONVERT TO SMART for a node. Is there a difference? Thank you
