  1. Hi! My Mac’s system language is set to Korean, but for some reason the Mac App Store versions of both Affinity Photo and Designer (v1.8.3) run in Japanese. (The Affinity store version of Publisher runs in English as you’d expect if there’s no Korean localization.) I understand both so it's not a critical problem for me personally, but switching mental gears all the time is weird. Might want to fix this? :)
  2. Hi, I do a lot of photo editing in Affinity Photo and Capture One. I also do a lot of vector editing in Affinity Designer. Last year, to speed up workflow, I bought a new Apple iMac Pro 3 GHz 10-Core Intel Xeon W, 64GB memory, Radeon Pro Vega 64X 16 GB graphics card and 2 TB SSD. This machine did cost me 8500€! This is very very expensive for me, but previously I had a MacBook Pro (2016) that was too slow for my graphics editing. So I thought to me let's spend a little more money to get a really powerful and fast machine, so my graphics editing will be in realtime without waiting time at all. At least that was what I wished and thought. But I have to say that neither Affinity Photo nor Affinity Designer have become much faster with the new computer. Both programs often have very long waiting times when working. I always watch the CPU usage and see that no core is ever used to its maximum. Let alone that all cores are used. It is absolutely incomprehensible to me that I have waiting times in the programs if there are enough performance resources available but they are not being used. For example, I like to work with the Inpainting Brush in Affinity Photo. Sometimes I really have to wait about a minute for it to finish calculating. It is very annoying. During this time, my computer has enough resources that Affinity does not use to calculate it faster. It may take advantage of 2-3 cores in half and the GPU by a quarter. But the rest of the cores do almost nothing. And we're not talking about huge photos here. I recently edited a 12MP iPhone photo. Or I work in Affinity Designer with graphics that consist of approx. 2000 elements. It is almost impossible to select all of these elements and move them around. It is so jerky that the graphics are rendered here and there and lag behind. It is impossible to work with. Here too it can be observed that perhaps two of the CPU cores do something, but are also underutilized. The rest does nothing. The GPU doesn't do anything either. Believe me, I've tried every combination of performance settings in Affinity Photo and Designer. Because it really annoys me that everything is so slow! But it only got slower than faster. I would understand that there is a waiting period if all resources are used to the maximum and there are no resources left. But because the CPU and GPU of my machine are mostly idle while I see slow process bars and long waiting and reaction times, I wonder if something is wrong? My question is, can I do something about it e.g. use certain special settings or is Affinity Photo and Designer not developed for using the performance of my machine? I've already spoken to Apple Support who checked my machine. But everything is normal and fine. I have reinstalled macOS and every app. But it hasn't changed. I mean a year ago this machine was advertised as "Power for Pros" or as "the fastest Mac every build". It would only have been faster with the 18 cores version with 256GB memory. So I ask myself, what machine do I need to buy from Apple to have a noticeable speed advantage? Best regards, Christoph
  3. Serif allow customers to test new builds of the software even before it is released to the public. These "beta" builds offer an opportunity to trial bug fixes, add support for new file formats and show off new features before they are launched. This post is designed to be an aid to knowing if you are trying the latest beta version of the Affinity software on your platform. Product Name | Platform | Beta Ver. | ====================|==================|===============| Affinity Designer | MacOS 10.9-10.15 | 1.8.4.3 | Affinity Photo | MacOS 10.9-10.15 | 1.8.4.183 | Affinity Publisher | MacOS 10.9-10.15 | 1.8.4.663 | MacOS Customer Betas require you to be an owner of the paid for version of the software to work. You either need to have the software installed on the same computer as the customer beta OR if you bought direct from the affinity.store website you can provide the product key to activate the beta. If you would like to try the MacOS Customer Beta build look for the top (pinned) post in each of these forums: Affinity Designer beta for Mac Affinity Photo beta for Mac Affinity Publisher beta for Mac Windows build numbers and Mac builds are technically independent. The third number increases each time a public release is made, the last number is generated by a build server and so not directly related to each other. I will update/edit this post as new MacOS Beta releases are added by the developers. This thread is locked and will only be posted to by Serif Staff when the beta release versions are updated. Please follow this thread if you want to know about future version changes. If you think this post has got behind announcing the MacOS beta updates and needs updating please PM me.
  4. Hi Affinity Team, I was so excited to see Affinity products on Apple's WWDC 2020 Platforms State of the Union screens multiple times. Congratulations to the Team! 1. PROBLEM At 14:05 we can see how Affinity Photo works seamlessly on macOS 11, however in reality the Toolbar doesn't work at all. We can not use any Toolbar's items and we need to use the shortcuts or the quick help to jump from one Persona to another. I know, I know... it's early macOS Beta with a totally new Toolbar functionalities. 2. QUESTION Yet I would like to know when Affinity start the new Beta period for those folks who are brave enough to test and use Affinity products on macOS 11 Beta system on a daily basis. I would be glad if I could sign up to this opening Beta program because I desperately need to access to the Toolbar. Please, let me know how it is possible. Thank you! Looking forward to your respond and thanks again! Best regards, Robert App Developer and UI/UX Designer 3. UPDATE When I put Affinity in Full screen, suddenly all of the toolbar items work again. Hurray!
  5. Good evening, I am a new user to Affinity Designer and I am loving the experience so far. I am also lucky enough to have the software on both my Mac Pro and my MacBook Air. I am wondering if the list of fonts is the same on both software versions. There seem to be some fonts missing from the MacBook version that are on the Mac Pro version. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
  6. So, here I am. I have a macro that I'm building up to apply a workflow state to production images. I recorded: creating a soft proof filter assigning the profile for that soft proof filter Set the document to "Save History With Document" changed the name of the soft proof filter with a name specific to the profile (so I can add different profile proofing for other providers later) turned off the visibility of that soft proof filter by default It all works as desired. That's the good news. The bad news? The "Save History With Document" step does not appear anywhere in the macro. Not in the edit, not in the number of steps. See the screenshots and the macro itself attached. Which is the bug? That I can include the menu selection or that the menu selection does not appear at all in the macro? One or the other has to be otherwise macros from outside sources cannot be trusted if all the steps involved are not identifiable. Whichever is the incorrect behavior, please log the bug. Thanks!

  7. Hello there, unfortunately I don’t understand (and can’t find a tut) how to apply a preset i.e. in the Curves Adjustment layer. 1. I make my adjustments (which I like to add to a batch of similar files) 2. I add a preset and name it 3. Where do I get this preset now in another image? Can someone help?
  8. howdy :) is this a 'feature' or a #bug? with more than one photograph open, & i select & try to edit the selected image with let's say text, the edit does not occur on the selected document instead a non-selected document becomes selected & the one which is suppose to take the edit deselects. this behaviour forces affinity to not be able to work with multiple images opened at one time. is this a feature or a bug? to reiterate, with multiple photographs open, a selected photograph never takes an adjustment, instead an unselected photo (document window under selection) becomes selected to take the edit. (an unselected photograph — not the intended one — becomes selected.) any ideas? thank you in advance macos 10.13.x affinity photo 1.8.3
  9. macos 10.13 Affinity Publisher 1.7.3 is Defaulting as the Default app for video? when/after importing many thousands of video files from professional cinematography cameras, canon, red, etc into macos 10.13 Publisher is defaulting as the application to open the file causing the video to be inoperable? video used to import fine prior to installing Affinity Publisher anyone else having this issue? the video & icon should be defaulting to Quicktime file format & Quicktime icon not Publisher changing the default application in the 'info' window in the Finder does not help any ideas? thank you in advance
  10. In the Index section of Affinity publisher I am trying to add a separator between the index item and the page number. Currently I am unable to add the "Right indent Tab" separator, when I click on it nothing happens. As a side note I am able to add the other separators. Does anyone know if this is a bug or have a suggestion as to how to solve this issue? The only other thing I can think of is to manually add Right Indent tabs to each Index item, but that would take a long time. Thank you Kindly.
  11. I have both Affinity Designer and Photo on my iMac. I have one annoying thing that happens that I cannot fix. When I double click an .afdesign file in Finder, it almost always opens Affinity Photo instead of Designer for anything located in the "Affinity Designer" iCloud Drive folder. The only way for me to get it to open in the right program is to specifically select it using "Open With" or by opening it from inside Designer. How do I fix this? Things of note: - In Finder the files all do say they are the "Affinity Designer Document" type. - As I mentioned, this appears to mostly occur for files stored in iCloud Drive in the Affinity Designer folder. If they are on my computer or in the documents folder (I do have that being stored on iCloud so I can access it from my iMac or MacBook), the files tend to consistently open in Affinity Designer.
  12. My publisher crashes when I try to move a page. It is a 4-paged flyer (to which I added a 5th page as a workaround for the crash, which I cut again on export to pdf). When I grab and move a page up, Publisher crashes without a notice, just closing hard. This can be reproduced. A crash report to Apple is created, I have a copy. Plus I have a screen recording on video, if this helps. The project file can be uploaded. MacOS and Serif Suite are up to date (Catalina 10.15.5, Publisher/Designer/Photo 1.8.3), MacBook Pro 15", 2019, CPU i7, GPU Vega 20, 32GB. I have read this thread ( https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/116386-publisher-repeatedly-crashes-when-i-try-to-move-a-page/ ) but can't apply a solution to my project, since I do not know how to isolate the problem.
  13. I've suddenly developed a weird blue 'o' and 'x' joined by a red line when I use the paint brush (see picture) in Affinity Photo. It is not related to brush size or type. I'm on a Mac OS10.15.5. Anyone have any idea what's going on?
  14. We are pleased to announce an update for the macOS release of Affinity Publisher, version 1.8.3 Changes in this build The changes in Affinity Publisher for macOS 1.8.3 (made since the last release Affinity Publisher on macOS 1.8.2) are as follows: Fixes & Improvements: General Fix for autosave/recover not working on anything but new documents. Fixed issues with live filters making layers disappear Fix for embedded documents not rendering at specific zoom levels Fix for crash and incorrect placement moving a group into or out of a Picture Frame Boolean Operation fixes Fixed possible crash saving documents containing embedded documents if there was a colourspace mismatch Via Layer Panel, linked documents were being opened as embedded and edits were not being committed to the linked file Shift-Invert selection behaviour with the Move Tool was broken Resource Manager 'Collect' could collect multiple copies of the same placed image (Mac) In the New Document dialog, 'Show in Finder' wasn't working for top level folder (Win) Font Manager could be launched with Resource Manager (Win) Fixed crash cycling through justification options in a table (Win) Fixed crash opening empty (0 Kb) files (Win) Floating (undocked) panels were collapsing too small and clipping content (Win) Create artboard missing from New Document dialog in Designer Persona Page Management Fixes for page operations that required spreads to be split Page objects could be incorrectly rescaled when master page was resized Text Filler text is now copied to clipboard as the expanded text rather than as '<FillerText>' Unpinning a node can scale it incorrectly Fixed crash copying mixture of filler text and regular TextTool Fixed changing text capitalization without a selection causing a crash. Text > Upper Case could crash if the selected text was already Upper Case Copy-paste Arabic text from .docx comes as Chinese in Publisher (Win) Some lines weren't correctly indented when using right align and right indent Import Empty (0 Kb) files could crash the import process Export PDF Export was not honouring gradient map's colour space PDF Export images downsampling to the wrong DPI under certain circumstances PDF Export was failing with placed documents in LAB colourspace PDF Export of placed images makes more effort to preserve their colour space PDF Export fix for export of objects with empty clipping paths Earlier changes and fixes in 1.8 since 1.7 (including the new 1.8 features) are listed in some detail in this 1.8.1 update announcement. and the 1.8.2 update announcement UPDATING TO THIS VERSION (Free for existing customers) The software version can be seen on the splash screen and the About dialog (in application menu, Affinity Publisher > About). 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. 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 Affinity Store— each time you start the software it will check for updates and offer to download and install any available update, or in the application main menu there is an option Check for Updates. 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. Alternatively, this new release (and previous versions of Affinity Publisher for macOS) can be downloaded from this link (that installer is NOT for Mac App Store purchases and needs a product key).
  15. I am new to Affinity Publisher and have several issues re IMDL import. FYI I do not have these issues in Quark. 1. The graphics show up as big question marks even though Publisher knows where the link is. 2. Affinity did not import style accurately for the numbered list with hanging indent. The numbers appear as 1.0Example line one and I cannot see where to get rid of ".0" Also I cannot get the spacing I want between lines on the list. The is a huge space 8pt? between lines using any number after 0, even when space is set to 0 before and 0.4 after paragraph 1.0Profit model (how companies make money) 2.0Network (how companies connect with others to create value) 3.0Structure (how companies align talent and assets) I can get the list the way I want (see attached) in a new file but when I paste it into the imported IMDL file I can't keep the style. At any rate that is a tedious workaround. I should be able to import docs with minimal Please advise . Thanks.
  16. Since a few days the ROMM RGB: ISO 22028-2:2013 (linear) is missing. This is true for the MAS version Affinity Photo 1.7.3, in the newest Beta from today all is ok. How can I get the profile back ? This is the MAS version 1.7.3: This the beta 1.8.0.164:
  17. Hi - how can you offer a publisher tool and then it is not possible to use Emojis. I have bought publisher to have free opportunities to create flyers, brochures or a book. Is there a way to change it in some settings? Thanks for fast reply Corina
  18. I've been having an issue where I export a paragraph of text into SVG (without converting it to curves but relying on the system fonts) and some characters render differently in the browser (tested on both on the latest desktop firefox and the latest android samsung browser) as seen in the image below: On closer inspection it seems that the SVG adds certain tags to certain characters, isolating them - without an apparent reason however. it is easy to reproduce: create a new document use the type text tool type "Other All" as text (using Arial font) (for some reason the issue appears if there is another word before the word All! Other tested strings that produce the fluff are "A All B" and the "Unlock All Features" string) export to SVG The SVG should have isolated the Al characters into an unnecessary <tspan> element: <g id="Artboard11" serif:id="Artboard1"> <text x="209.036px" y="520.05px" style="font-family:'ArialMT', 'Arial', sans-serif;font-size:36px;">Other <tspan x="307.087px 331.099px " y="520.05px 520.05px ">Al</tspan>l</text> </g>
  19. Hi, I am trying to open an SVG file in Affinity Designer 1.8.3 (attached arrow_upward.svg), but Affinity only renders a rectangle, while other tools (Inkscape for example) also renders the arrow polygon data include in the SVG file, as show in the attached screenshot. Thanks in advance. arrow_upward.svg
  20. Everywhere else on macOS, you can use option-left to move the cursor to the beginning of the word the cursor is in (including any punctuation attached to that word, but not brackets), and if you're at the beginning, it moves to the beginning of the word. Option-right does the same, but to the end of the current or next word. Option-up takes you to the beginning of the line, or if you're at the beginning of the line, the beginning of the previous line. Option-down does the same, but to the end of the current or next line. Command-left takes you to the beginning of the current line without the risk of overshooting if you double-click the left key, command-right takes you to the end. Command-up takes you to the start of the document, command-down takes you to the end. However, Affinity Photo treats command as option, and option as changing the current selection's spacing, making characters closer or further apart on the X axis with option-left and right, and lines closer or further apart on the Y axis, with option-up and down. This is all very useful for typesetters, but I want text-navigation consistent with the rest of macOS without accidentally having to undo anything or be frustrated with it not working properly. Could it be a togglable option? Is it already one I don't know about? Thank you for your time.
  21. Hi, I've got Affinity Photo, Designer, Publisher(APDP) on my Mac. Great stuff. I'd like to know do I need to buy the ADPD for my iPad? It's fine if I do. If I have APDP on my iPad can I sync w the Mac so I can work on the same file in either place? For instance, I'd save the files in the Files on the iPad and then expect to be able to open it on the Mac. -ed
  22. If you purchased your Affinity app from the Affinity Store, your licence details will be stored in an .xml file which can be found in the below locations, depending on the operating system you're using. Deleting the Licence.xml file will remove the licence details used by the app prompting you to re-enter your licence details when you next launch the app. Windows: C:\ProgramData\Affinity\{APPNAME}\1.0\licence.xml or C:\Program Files\Affinity\{APPNAME}\licence.xml macOS: /Users/{USERNAME}/Library/Group Containers/6LVTQB9699.com.seriflabs/{APPNAME}/licence.xml
  23. Hello. I found a bug on Affinity Designer. I'm not sure about the other apps(Photo & Publisher) whether they have this bug or not. I usually type two languages(English and Korean). I set "Select the previous input source" to "control space", and "Select next source in input menu" to "shift space". (Attached the screenshot.) In other apps or in the macOS system, I can switch from one language to another by typing "control space" or "shift space". Both of them works. However on Affinity Designer, only "control space" worked. I want to use "shift space" on affinity designer. Changing the position, which means setting "Select the previous input source" to "shift space", and "Select next source in input menu" to "control space", would make it work. However, I can't do this because I want to use "shift space" on the app "Parallels", and it needs to set "Select next source in input menu" to "shift space". I wish to use the shortcut(in my case, "shift space") linked to "Select next source in input menu" on Affinity Apps like the other apps do. Thank you.
