  1. Hi! Does it make sense to wait for the light version for the iPhone in the near future? I really miss the pocket vector editor for accurate sketches ... with symmetry and sticking on the grid Or can you recommend an application from another manufacturer?
  2. Large panorama, trying to inpaint a relatively small missing section, I can semi-reliably (not every time but many times) get the app to (what looks like) loop allocating memory. The two times I tried to repro this in the beta the inpaint succeeded (different images) but this seems serious enough to offer up in case you want to verify. Affinity Photo 1.6.11 The project file is 6+GB so I'll wait for you to ask for it. :-D As a side note, this was another instance of the behavior that inspired this feature request:
  3. Does Affinity Photo for iPad/iOS support Sony Pixel Shift ARQ files? Also, does Affinity Photo for Mac and Windows support Sony Pixel Shift ARQ files? If this Compatibility does not currently exist, will support be added in a future release for each platform? If so, is there a Date this ARQ functionality will be made available? Thanks for your time.
  4. 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.
  5. I use the gaussian blur to get a blurred frame around photos. I make a selection, invert it and use the gaussian blur filter. In many photos, the frame as in photo 1, the frame was blurred out at the edge. All of a sudden it becomes a sharp edge instead as in photo 2. What have I done wrong? Some settings I missed?
  6. Hello, I was wondering if within Affinity Designer is there a "Free transform tool" to allow perspective distort with shapes, this is something that can be done within illustrator where you can take two points and can move them together or further apart with equal distance like the example below. You can kinda do this with the "Corner" tool set to straight but this is set to only one angle when perspective distort can change the angle. Thank you for your time and I hope you have a great day.
  7. See the attached screenshot. I noticed this as well with "alignment" during this process.
  8. I purchased Affinity Designer in Jan 2017 via Mac App Store. It is at version 1.6.1 on my Mac. I am unable to find how to update it to the latest version. For example, if i open App Store and find Affinity Designer in App Store, it simply says OPEN, there does not appear to be the option to update it. If i click on the UPDATES menu item in App Store, it says all my apps are up-to-date. I have contacted Apple Support and they said if App Store is not giving me the option to update the app, then i should contact Affinity Designer App Support. Which is what i'm trying to do here! Thanks!!

    Error in documentation

    In the Help Page on Field Epressions, in the section on general arithmetic, that for input '/2', the result is 'divide by a half'! I am told that this error is present in both the Windows and the Mac versions, and in both 1.6 and 1.7. John
  10. When I open an illustrator file in affinity publisher beta on my mac, the effects added to objects (drop shadows, etc.) in illustrator are not showing in the publisher beta. Is this by design? Is there a way to get the effects to show up in publisher beta when opening an illustrator file?
  11. Are these already on the list to be added (I didn't see them in the roadmap)? If not, please consider this a request. The use case for the file proxy is pretty narrow (such as when I'm working directly on a source image and not on the afphoto encapsulation of it) but the cmd-click path menu I find myself missing on a daily basis since I'm using the filesystem as my DAM right now and jumping around from folder to folder is painful or requires keeping multiple finder windows open for context (per open tab) rather than being able to directly jump to the location in question. Thank you!
  12. I am having a problem with selecting an area using the pen tool on my Macbook pro running OSX 10.11.6. with a Wacom Intuos pro model PTH 651 running the latest version of its software, downloaded today. My Affinity Photo is version 1.6.7. When I try drawing around and area by creating a series of node points it stutters and then creates a new curve layer. Even if I go round to the start point to join it up there is no completion of the circle. If I use a mouse to select an area that works O.K. but when I press select I get dancing lines on the two vertical sides of the picture, not around my selection. If at that point I click 'invert selection' the whole picture goes transparent. I'm sure that the first part of this problem is a bug and the second part I was following a video (not one of yours as I couldn't find one that showed using the pen tool to select an area.) and his worked and mine didn't. The latter could be something that I am doing but I have gone over it about 5 times and used different photos.
  13. In a table the stroke of multiple selected table cells often doesn't change and update accordingly. When I select all cells of a table in order to set their stroke to none and stroke size to 0, only few cells (randomly) are affected and updated. Many cells still do show a stroke there, even when afterwards the settings of some individual selected/active cells do show "none stroke" and "size 0" there is still a visable none removed stroke. One always has to reclick and retouch the stroke size slider of such cells in order to get them updated and to show up no stroke at all.

    Not working for Macbook

    I have a 2015 MacBook Pro that's completely up to date. The entire left hand menu (the one that allows me to even start drawing) just wont show up. I've tried restarting, deleting and re-downloading from the Apple Store, but nothing has worked. It has been like this for weeks. I have Affinity Designer for my desktop Mac, however, (which is a lot more new) and it works perfectly there.
  15. Hello! A while back I bought Designer for my iPad, through the app store. Today I bought it for my Mac also, this time from Affinity's web site, and had to create an account there. Of course, my iPad purchase isn't listed on my Affinity account. Is there a way it can be? Is there even a benefit to doing so, or should I not worry about it? Thanks!
  16. I just overlay two small images (4KB and 4MB) and trying to drag the smaller one. I have deleted the app and reinstall from the APP store again. Any help would be appreciated! Please see the attached for my system setup. I have also tried different Display settings and those didn't help either.
  17. I have recently started using Affinty Designer and found that few basic features were missing which all the other professional Vector Editing Software have. Split Point ( This feature allows to break the point into Two separate points ) Minus/Plus or remove/add node ( Feature in Pen Tool to add or remove a node without limiting to shift to different tools ) Break Apart or Release Compound Path ( After Separating a shape with subtract front from back I need to be able to use both separations as different object rather than one single unit ) Create Clipping Mask or Power Clip option in Context Menu and Also Ctrl/Command + Drag object over other object for Quick Power Clipping(This feature is required for the reason of better efficiency ) Actions or Automation ( This Feature is in Illustrator which allows pre-recorded actions to take complex or rather bulk part of the work be smoother and FASTER ) Shape Builder Tool ( This Tool makes it easier for ratio base designing ) ( This is specifically required for professional designers ) Hovering Thumbnail along side the eyedropper tool with Color information (Eg : ) ( It is much need feature if you use it ) Convert to Curves should be included in Text Drop Down Menu. Change of units from right click on ruler ( This feature allows change of measuring unit from just by right clicking on the ruler ) Convert Object to Guidelines ( This Feature allows to Convert Object into Guide Shapes ) Object Locking option in Context Menu (much needed feature for Desktop and Mac user ) Color Numeric Value in swatches with the current color mode ( This feature is highly required one suggested by dadesign I.e.: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/77313-color-numeric-value-in-swatches/ don't know the person but really useful feature ) Thank You for Hearing,
  18. Hi all, New to Affinity and hopefully a convert from Adobe soon! I was testing Publisher last night (most recent version as of yesterday) finding and replacing a particular word for the whole document. Clicking Find was fine, Replace All was fine but when I did CMD-Z to undo I found that if you do that one too many times (i.e. you undo 6 times when you only found and replaced 5 times) Publisher adds 'ghost text' in those text boxes that doesn't follow any considerations of font, colour, size or any other formatting. In my test, I was replacing < You > throughout the document with a name (Ed). When I did this then went to Undo one too many times (to change everything back to < You >) these big, unformatted black < You > words appeared in those text boxes. They were hard to select too. I'll see if I can replicate and upload a screenshot but am at work at the mo.
  19. I see new versions are on their way. I am excited, but then I think about the one tool I want and desire and become sad knowing it won't be present.... most likely. Please gods of Affinity.... Give me a DESTRUCTIVE crop (or at the least an option when cropping)! Rasterizing is NOT an option. Sometimes, I just want to get rid of stuff not mask and hide it. So, please please please please please please please please please give us the ability to destructive crop. Thank you.
  20. Hi, I'm using Affinity (both Designer and Photo) while working on a network drive and I've come across the following problem: the server disconnects every once in a while. When it happens, Affinity doesn't really seem to care (no warnings whatsoever), at least not until I try to save the file. Only then I get the attached popup ("Save failed because acces to the file was lost.") and the document closes, even when the server/network drive has been reconnected. It allows me to recover the autosave when I reopen the file, however, since I'm used to hitting cmd+S right after I make some important changes, these are often lost. I think one of these solutions could help – either check if the drive was reconnected / remind to reconnect (that would be perfect), or make an additional autosave before closing the file, or at least give some warning when the connection is lost, not upon attempt to save. Thanks in advance!
  21. Issue Opening Canon CR2 RAW image in Affinity Photo for Mac Develop Persona results in image being split into multiples and parts of the image replicated over the rest of the image when using Apple Core Image raw engine. Steps 1) Open Affinity Photo 2) File>Open 3) Select attached Canon CR2 RAW image>Open 4) Notice CR2 RAW image opens in Develop Persona and is split into multiple parts and parts of image are replicated (see attached screenshot) Desired Entire Canon CR2 RAW image is displayed in Develop persona without being split or replicated Notes I don't know when the issue began, but it was fairly recent. I believe it may have started after upgrading to macOS Mojave. The issue has not always occurred and this camera used to work fine with Affinity and Apple Core Image raw engine. Issue does not occur when using Serif Labs raw engine. However, Serif Labs engine does not properly support T7i/800D RAW files in Affinity 1.6.7. Issue occurs in Affinity 1.7 Beta when using Apple Core image raw engine. It does not occur when using Serif Labs raw engine. The Serif Labs RAW engine in Affinity 1.7 Beta does a better job of handing the Canon CR2 RAW Image. Issue occurs regardless of where image is stored on hard drive. Tested from desktop, Pictures folder and external drive. Issue occurs when opening from right-click context menu. Issue DOES NOT occur when opening in Affinity Photo from Photos Edit With menu. However, this bypasses the Develop persona in Affinity. (This is a possible workaround for now) Issue does not occur in Photos or Preview. Hardware MacBook Pro (13-inch, 2016, Four Thunderbolt 3 Ports) Software macOS Mojave 10.14.2 Affinity Photo 1.6.7 Camera/Image Canon EOS Rebel T7i (800D) Canon CR2 RAW image Apple Core Image raw engine IMG_3650.CR2
  22. While Using Affinity Designer 1.6.1 I noticed while trying to make a color pallet that the placed image was washed out and didn't have the same color hex code as what I needed. Is there a setting that I am not seeing that I need to change? I will attach files so you can see what I mean. I used the Color Picker Tool and as you can see the code isn't the same. Even in the screen shot you can see that the image is washed out/faded. I have attached the original images as well for comparison. It's really strange. Forum Gods, impart me of your wisdom, for I am at a loss. Mastoth
  23. I'm trying to use Affinity Photo to make a curves adjustment layer for digital negatives that will be used in a traditional darkroom process. I need to be able to compensate for the response curves of the medium (e.g. photographic paper, cyanotype) I will be contact printing the negative to. I can calculate the curve but I can't find a way of telling Affinity Photo to make an adjustment curve where input value 5 maps to output value 20, input value 16 maps to output 32, etc. as is possible in Photoshop. I'd be happy to have a way to create a preset in the text file or something if that is possible as the curve would be the same for all images made into negatives and darkroom printed to the same medium. Any ideas? Martin
  24. Happy New Year, dear friends! I am ashamed to have to ask this, but here goes. In this screenshot, I have a round object (white ring) that I want to use as a mask for the sun (star) shape: The intent is to make the white part transparent and allow the blue background to show through. I have tried the usual masking operations, and I cannot seem to get it to work as expected. I even tried the Layer -> Rasterize to Mask operation, and that didn't work either. My preference is to keep it non-destructive, if possible. Also, I am not sure that the way that I created the white ring is the best method. Create the circle object Set the fill to none Make the stroke large Layer -> Convert to Curves Layer -> Expand Stroke If there is a better way to create this, I am all ears! The file is attached, if needed. Sun Masking.afdesign
  25. 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.
