  1. Hi I drew some graphics on one document. I copy the graphics to paste onto a SEPARATE document but the application closed by itself, not allowing me to paste. 1. I’ve restarted the application 2. I’ve restarted the iPad Both still causing the same problems over and over again. Any ideas to resolve this? thanks in advance
  2. I'm trying to speed up my workflow, I know in other applications you can copy/paste/sync adjustment settings in RAW to another image, is this possible in Affinity please and if so how/where do I find the option. Thanks in advance.
  3. Hi. I use photoscape along with affinity photo. PhotoScape has a unique option on the rightclick menu to edit or copy the exif metadata. For those who don't know what metadata is, the EXIF is imbedded into a RAW or JPEG or TIFF to record details relevant to the picture. For example, ISO Fstop focal length of lens exposure time are all recorded as well as photograph date drive mode etc. This is a really handy tool so I don't have to carry pencil and paper around with me when taking photos. I note this feature is also missing in Affinity photo. I can cut paste across applications but to have this feature in publisher would be very helpful.
  4. just select one or all of the curves and ctrl-c... copy fail.afdesign
  5. Designer crashes all the time when I copy-paste content from one document to an other document. I have 2 documents opened in Designer and want to copy content from one document to the other. This happens not only when I try to copy the content from a hole page, but also when I copy only a small tekstfield.
  6. Every single time I paste text from Gmail that contains line breaks combined with multiple types of formatting (Bold, italics, etc...) into a text box, Publisher will crash. This only happens when copying from Chrome, as pasting the same text from other sources seems stable. The current beta doesn't seem to like Gmail on Chrome much...
  7. I am trying to "left justify" some copy and it only goes to "justified left/ragged right", no matter what I try. I don't understand why it won't justify on both sides. The other options work, center justified, full justified, but the left justified option only goes to a regular left/ragged right. Is there a special way to create a text box? I just typed out the text and it seems to have created it's own text box. thanks.
  8. Is there a way to copy and paste edits to do a batch of RAW files? I want to apply the same edits across a few RAW files taken. I know there is a MACRO function and arent sure if this is what Im looking for.
  9. I spent a lot of time of time trying to get a selected area of my image out of Affinity Photo. With no luck. It seems "copy" only works within Photo and is not compatible with the iOS pasteboard. So, how do I export only part of my image? Either a selection or a layer? Do I have to delete everything else first? Apparently, this is an ugly hack.
  10. I am looking for a way to "link" an object(s) rather than copying and pasting, or "placing" in such a way that a change to the original object is reflected wherever it has been used. For example, see the screenshot (I am using artboards here, but just for this example). I would like to a change to the objects in the "logo" artboard to be reflected in the "letterhead" and "envelope" artboards, for example changing the text from "A Logo" to "My Logo". Is there some approach that would allow this? Doesn't have to be between artboards... logo could be a separate document, etc. Thanks... I love using Affinity Designer, and use it for all my vector based work now.
  11. As a long-type PhotoShop user, I am used to being able to copy layer effects (fx) from one layer to another. This could be done with a context menu selection. I have not found this capability in Affinity Photo. Does it exist? I found another user had posted an answer regarding another of your products, but I don't see that feature in Affinity Photo. Thanks for your input.
  12. hi experts..., when i want to copy & paste some objects in AD from one document across another document (also from one artboard to another in the same document), the size of the objects will be completly changed... is there an option for exact copying...?
  13. Issue / Task: Imagine you are creating a user interface or some other dynamic / modular design consisting of a variety of elements, sharing certain properties, such as color stroke width fx and many more Possible Applications: Creating dynamic, unified color palettes for multiple buttons, knobs, input fields etc. Changing global or semi-global stroke properties on the fly Re-using existing designs while applying new schemes for a new entry in the series swiftly Speeding up changes to large-scale projects in general Related Solutions: While Symbols allow for document-wide changes in properties within copies of the same object or shape, when working with a diverse range of shapes, groups and nestings can be tedious to impossible. Inheritances would speed up things considerably and add a whole range of possibilities. Implementation Suggestion: I would imagine the following workflow to be quite effective and straightforward, at least as far as my routine is concerned: Select and copy the source element Select the element to inherit a property Navigate to a window / tab with any property (such as color, stroke, fx etc.) Click the Inherit Button, a small, universal icon found in all studio tabs and windows. This property is now linked to the source element. Changing this specific property within the source element also affects this element. Click the Inherit Button again to unlink / disable the inheritance. Copying elements with an inheritance would preserve the inheritance for the copied element. I hope this makes reasonnable sense - of course I would be thrilled to find out something similar was already available in Affinity Designer. Cheers!
  14. It occurred when I wanted to copy text from Word but I cannot paste in Designer. I tried using other apps (ex: Notes, Pages) and also tried restart the app and reboot my iPad Pro 10.5 though it still didn't work neither. Is it a bug from updating iOS 12 or not? Please clarify and solve this problem cause I have only this app that can work with my graphic design on iPad and I still have more work to do with texts. Thanks in advance.
  15. Please honor the standard Windows hotkey convention, and your Windows users, and incorporate the following: CTRL + F4 as Close Window SHIFT + DELETE as Cut CTRL + INSERT as Copy SHIFT + INSERT as Paste I understand users can configure hotkeys, though many Windows users expect some or all of these hotkey sequence to work as expected. Further most users will 'fight with'/'bend to' application defaults rather than configure such application behavior details. These refinements will improve application usability and user efficiency. I also understand CTRL + W is defined as close window (is this a Mac convention? I have not seen this behavior in other Windows applications.). Retaining CTRL + W, and adding CTRL + F4 or replacing CTRL + W with CTRL + F4 are equally welcome refinements. I have not tested for the possibility in Affinity Publisher to allow for user configured multiple hotkey sequences for the same function (e.g. CTRL + X and SHIFT + DELETE both as cut). It is common for Windows users to be familiar with and use both, or prefer one over the other. Please consider incorporating this behavior in the Windows versions of Affinity Designer and Photo. Thank you for considering.
  16. If you copy text then an image then text it crashes (just like Pageplus 9 does). When it crashes is there a way of pulling back the file so there is an option to give it the name of the original file (Word uses a temp file). I had to set autosave to 2 minute intervals so I didn't lose too much work but it is very annoying having to wait minutes on long documents for it to reload. Long table creation is a nightmare. There is no way of formatting it when you paste a long list of table entries (even in pure text + tab format). There is no select all in the edit menu and of course you can't create a table from selected text. Tables can't be split and I can't see a way of creating a heading on each page. Creating indexes take a long time as the tables are updated after each entry.
  17. Double-clicking an AFDESIGN document in Windows Explorer runs Publisher - see related issue here: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/69657-affinity-logo-change/ When asked what to do with the document - Cancel, Continue or Copy - I opt to open a copy. The document opens and I opt to convert artboards into spreads, all seems fine. When I then try to close Publisher - without making any other changes - I get a dialog box as shown in the attached image. After waiting a few minutes I still get the same message when trying to close Publisher. Closing the document itself works fine but then when trying to close Publisher I still get the same message. The only way to quit Publisher after opening a copy of the document is by using the Task Manager.
  18. Affinity Designer for iPad crashes every time I copy a layer from one drawing and paste it into another drawing.
  19. Hi, everybody. the problem is I can't cut the pictures properly 6002BD2A-F31F-4DC5-AF38-EAA0967EFEB6.MP4
  20. Hello! I'm quite new to the Affinity family. I've been using Affinity Photo for some time to do some basic photo editing. Now I'm getting into some design work to submit for surface pattern design. This requires that I paste many layers and shift them around to make appealing patterns. One thing I can't figure out how to undo is when I click a layer/object that layer sometimes ends up being duplicated! It's incredibly annoying because I only want to move one layer, not duplicate it. This happens when I have the move tool selected and attempt to move the layer. I can sort of reset it by going to the layers panel and manually selecting a new layer, moving it to see if it is duplicating or not, and then going back to the layer I actually want to move. But after a few alterations, it starts to do it again. This happens in either Designer or Photo. Is there some setting I have triggered? If so, how do I turn it off? Thank you.

    BUG when duplicating with Alt

    Hey guys, When I wanna duplicate something I hit Ctrl and click, hold and drag. Everything is perfect. But when I use Alt instead of Ctrl, even if I have the "whole pixels" options enabled, when I duplicate the new object and drag it, I get decimals for X and Y. Cheers, Chris

    Copy & Pasting Error

    Not sure if this is a known issue, so I apologize if this has been discussed already. I have a new project folder, in that project folder I have (currently) 2 files. My main document which has only one layer at the moment, and a separate photo I'm masking my subject out in. I need to copy the masked layer of the subject into the document with the background. When I select the subject layer, select "copy" and attempt to paste this layer and it's mask into my background document, the layer and it's mask are pasted, but the actual subject in the layer is missing. This is repeatable without change. Thoughts? Thanks in advance.
  23. In the latest version I'm getting an strange message. It used to be seamless, copy -> Paste and that was it. But now I'm getting this message: Is there that can be fixed in affinity? Pasting stuff finally works (it does paste and it's vector based and all...the thing is that this sign appears each time I paste something. If you have a lot of graphics you have to move from affinity to keynote...it's really annoying. Thanks for taking the time to read this. B.

    Copied vector pasted wrong

    Hi again, Just noticed something that i am not aware if already noticed. Apologies if posting again. The first image (above) is a vector copied from a software designing chemical structures. The second image (below) is the how is getting pasted in Affinity Designer. I should add that when exporting the structure as SVG using Illustrator, AD opens it normally without errors. Just in case this helps. However, when copying the structure from Illustrator with command+C, the structure is not getting pasted correctly in AD. Many thanks. A.
  25. Hi guys, How do I copy a pixel selection? In Fireworks you simply draw a shape with the marquee tool, hit Ctrl+C, Ctrl+V, and the pixel selection is copied. How can I do this in Affinity? The help file doesn't seem to explain this. Thanks
