  1. I was following the "Create 3D Text Effect | Affiinity Designer | Tutorial | Type Mockup" on YouTube on my MacBook Pro (running macOS 10.13.6 and Affinity Designer for Mac v1.6.1 and iPad v 1.6.1) and replicating the tutorial steps on AD as I went along. However, AD hung at 2.38m in when adding/merging two layers. I tried several times again after rebooting, removing and reinstalling AD on the mac but the issue remained. I had just bought AD for my iPad Pro (v1.6.1 also) and tried to follow the tutorial step by step again on the iPad version of AD but it hung in exactly the same place! Clearly there is a major issue here with AD. Can anybody help? Affinity? David.
  2. Hey, there's a feature in macOS which I know is quite hidden but it's very very very useful, once you are aware of. Bad enough that it is missing in affinity photo and designer. In all finder windows and most apps which deal with files it's possible to do some basic file handling actions from the window title where the file icon is located. Doing a right click lets you go directly to the path where the file is located. Dragging the file icon lets you move or copy the file to another place. Here's a very quick video attached but you should try this handling yourself and you will see, how it boosts your productivity. Btw. this function exists from the first day of mac OS X. Would be nice if you add this because it's so so basic. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6-fkYFV7rOY (at 0:59, some other examples exist, but I just had this quickly by hand) cheers Benny FilehandlingSD.mov
  3. Does anyone know if the nodes in AD on Mac desktop is compatible to paste into FontLab Studio? Im designing a new typeface, and I’d like to design the letters in AD, then copy and paste the nodes into FontLab Studio.. i used to do this from Illustrator.. well, I had to do some adjustments after in FontLab but that’s ok.. Anyone? :-)
  4. Hoping someone can shed some light on an apparent issue with Soft Proofing in Affinity Photo, but first a little background; I am looking to switch from Adobe products and Affinity Photo will be taking over the role Photoshop has played so far in my workflow, and so far so good. Then recently I was contacted by a client that wishes to purchase a print of one of my photos. This is the first time I am making a large size print for a client so I am doing this via a gallery print lab (I have done printing on my home printer before so I know the basics of Soft Proofing, however it’s a home printer Epson XP-235 so no ICC profiles for that consumer model). So I though this is the perfect time to test out the soft proofing in Affinity Photo. However I am getting very strange, and what I assume are incorrect results out of Affinity Photo. The colour space required by the lab is sRGB and a TIF file with a DPI of 300 which will be printed on Hahnemüehle Photo Rag and are soft proofing using the ICC profile for the given paper and printer at the gallery, so far so good or so I thought. What first got me thinking something was off was when I changed rendering intent, in Affinity Photo and there was little to no difference between any of the intents and huge amount of out of gamut colour. So I went back to Lightroom and sure enough in Lightroom there was far from the same amount of clipping using the same ICC profile and rending intent. Hence I opened the file in Photoshop and here results were the same as Lightroom’s rendering intents (relative and perceptual), while Absolute matches what I see in Affinity Photo. I would have assumed since I use the same file with the same colour space and the same ICC profile on the same computer the results should be the same, unless one software is interpreting colours and the ICC profile differently which in that case begs the question; which is closest to the truth? Or is this a bug in Affinity Photo’s soft proof adjustment layer? (And yes I know that soft proof will never match the true to life print, however I like to get an as close to the print rendition as possible, but I now have a very hard time trustingt what I am seeing in Affinity Photo). Pictures speak louder than words, so here is a chart detailing the results I am seeing and as you can see it's a huge difference. Hope someone can answer this or if I am missing something in the workflow. Software versions: Affinity Photo: 1.6.7 Photoshop: CC 19.1.5 Lightroom: 6.14 standalone Thanks.

    Failed to open File

    I have Affinity Designer (1.6.1) installed on my iMacPro (macOS 10.13.4) and I can't open files anymore that I have created just a few weeks ago. I always get an "Failed to open file" error. "This file could not be opened because permission was denied." The file is on a NAS from which I can open it with no problem from my MacBookPro (macOS 10.13.4) no matter wether I connect via NFS, AFP or SMB. I tried to copy the file locally off the NAS, but I still get the same error. I deleted and re-istalled Affinity Designer, but it still does not work. What can I do? Please help!
  6. I understand that saving export presets is on the feature request list already -- +1. I'm trying to manually produce the same export results. Here're screenshots from both MacOS (latest) and iPad (latest), and the iOS exported image geometry differs from same export on MacOS. How can I replicate my export svg settings from MacOS to iOS so I can export from either with consistent results? Regards, d00d
  7. When you use Affinity Designer or Affinity Photo in full screen on a Mac, the applications focus are incoherent to what the user would expect. If Affinity Designer is launched and in full screen. When you open an Affinity Designer file from the Finder, the file is opened in the current Affinity Designer space and the app is put in focus but you stay on the current Finder space. If you don’t pay attention to the menu bar you could thing it didn't work. For me the best behaviour would be to automatically switch to the Affinity Designer space (akin to Visual Studio Code). Another solution would be to open the file in the current space with a complete interface like Pages does but this doesn't seems suitable to me.
  8. A plug-in for Quick Look. Not a good idea, Serif?
  9. I have a photo that I am trying to do three things to: Crop an advertising poster out Fix the extreme perspective skew Fill in the missing part of one corner I know that AP can do all of these things, but I cannot seem to get past step 1. I did succeed in the first step using the selection brush. I know that the perspective tool is supposed to help in the second step, but I must be doing something wrong. The project file is attached; I hope someone can help. Thanks! Sign up.afphoto
  10. Spoiler: This is not a question, but something MUCH better! I was in the Mac App Store to check for updates, and I was very pleased to see which apps are ranked #3 and #9 top grossing apps: It is so good to see this, that I could not NOT share it here. Congratulations!
  11. I can't get the download to work. It's been trying for over 5 hours. What do I do?
  12. Hi there, most of the time, I like to work with Affinity Designer/Photo in fullscreen mode. Sometimes however, I have multiple images that I need to compare while editing them, mainly to match white balance, exposure and so on because for example the images are intended to be placed on the same page of a magazine. Since Affinity applications have a tabbed interface and won't allow me to display multiple images side by side or get a tiled view while in Single Window Mode, I have to switch to Separated Mode in those cases. The problem I have is this: The menu item Window > Separated Mode is greyed out while the application is fullscreen. This means that switching to Separated Mode always becomes a two-step process for me. I have to leave fullscreen first with one command and then activate Separated Mode with another command. The question I have is: why? Wouldn't it be much easier if turning on Separated Mode would automatically exit fullscreen if necessary? Or am I missing something why it can't work this way? Best regards kaffeeundsalz
  13. Hi there, I love using Affinity photo, but I am missing one point with Details Refinement. In Lightroom it is possible to press the ALT-key while changing the masking slider. This gives you a masking / kind of high pass view of the sharpening that is applyed. I can't find a method to do that in Affinity Photo. Is that function missing or am I missing something? Any plans for a feature like that. Besides that, what's your workflow with Detail Refinement (RAW development)? What values are you set fixed, what is variable afterwards? What are your indications for sharpening the image appropriately? Any tips are highly appreciated! Thanks and best, David
  14. Every time I try to open a PDF in Affinity Designer, the PDF Options dialog appears and a second or so the program closes. There is no Crash report or anything. This happens on dragging a PDF into tho open software, dragging a PDF onto the icon the the Dock and opening a PDF via the menu File -> Open… . I had this issue a time ago. A complete reinstallation did the job. But I don’t want to reinstall the whole program every time this bug appears … System Information: macOS 10.13.3 MacBook Pro (13-inch, 2017, Four Thunderbolt 3 Ports) 3,1 GHz Intel Core i5 8 GB 2133 MHz LPDDR3 Affinity Designer 1.6.0 Here is the complete log from the macOS Console: error 08:27:46.524665 +0100 Affinity Designer AEGetDescData of non-desc type 'reco' not a good idea default 08:27:47.432327 +0100 Affinity Designer Failed to resolve bookmark 7f7f6fcc0000 with error: <private> default 08:27:47.468620 +0100 Affinity Designer Failed to resolve bookmark 7f7f6fcc0000 with error: <private> default 08:27:47.483443 +0100 Affinity Designer Failed to resolve bookmark 7f7f6fcc0000 with error: <private> default 08:27:47.498816 +0100 Affinity Designer Failed to resolve bookmark 7f7f6fcc0000 with error: <private> default 08:27:47.514036 +0100 Affinity Designer Failed to resolve bookmark 7f7f6fcc0000 with error: <private> default 08:27:47.528478 +0100 Affinity Designer Failed to resolve bookmark 7f7f6fcc0000 with error: <private> default 08:27:47.548900 +0100 Affinity Designer Failed to resolve bookmark 7f7f6fcc0000 with error: <private> default 08:27:47.560665 +0100 Affinity Designer Failed to resolve bookmark 7f7f6fcc0000 with error: <private> default 08:27:47.571987 +0100 Affinity Designer Failed to resolve bookmark 7f7f6fcc0000 with error: <private> default 08:27:47.583434 +0100 Affinity Designer Failed to resolve bookmark 7f7f6fcc0000 with error: <private> default 08:27:47.596657 +0100 Affinity Designer Failed to resolve bookmark 7f7f6fcc0000 with error: <private> default 08:27:47.610172 +0100 Affinity Designer Failed to resolve bookmark 7f7f6fcc0000 with error: <private> default 08:27:47.626904 +0100 Affinity Designer Failed to resolve bookmark 7f7f6fcc0000 with error: <private> default 08:27:47.641909 +0100 Affinity Designer Failed to resolve bookmark 7f7f6fcc0000 with error: <private> default 08:27:47.657102 +0100 Affinity Designer Failed to resolve bookmark 7f7f6fcc0000 with error: <private> default 08:27:47.669823 +0100 Affinity Designer Failed to resolve bookmark 7f7f6fcc0000 with error: <private> default 08:27:47.683075 +0100 Affinity Designer Failed to resolve bookmark 7f7f6fcc0000 with error: <private> default 08:27:47.697862 +0100 Affinity Designer Failed to resolve bookmark 7f7f6fcc0000 with error: <private> default 08:27:47.715920 +0100 Affinity Designer Failed to resolve bookmark 7f7f6fcc0000 with error: <private> default 08:27:47.731908 +0100 Affinity Designer Failed to resolve bookmark 7f7f6fcc0000 with error: <private> default 08:27:47.745861 +0100 Affinity Designer Failed to resolve bookmark 7f7f6fcc0000 with error: <private> error 08:27:50.419123 +0100 Affinity Designer Couldn't read values in CFPrefsPlistSource<0x6000004f4800> (Domain: com.apple.PowerManagement, User: kCFPreferencesAnyUser, ByHost: Yes, Container: (null), Contents Need Refresh: Yes): accessing preferences outside an application's container requires user-preference-read or file-read-data sandbox access, detaching from cfprefsd default 08:27:53.343105 +0100 Affinity Designer LSExceptions shared instance invalidated for timeout.

  15. Hi everybody. I bought, installed and have been using a Windows version of Affinity Photo for three months. However, I have now changed from a Windows PC to a Mac. Do I have to buy Affinity Photo all over again, or can I transfer my existing license and then continue using Photo on the Mac? I'm a little bit weary about buying Photo all over again.
  16. I recently downloaded Affinity Designer. On opening AD one is welcomed with some sample illustrations (Downloadable). I downloaded some illsutrations and modified them a little bit. When I closed the document I was not asked, what to do with the document. Now that I have downloaded a 311 MB illustration, I don't see the option to delete it nor can I find where is it stored on my mac. I would either like to export it (AD is not allowing to export since it's locked) or delete it which I can't! So how can I remove this lock feature in order to delte or export the 311 MB illustration?
  17. On MacOS, I want Affinity Photo to be the default application to open file type .CR2 (Canon Raw). Right now, the default application is Gimp. The usual procedure for changing the default is to right click a file of the desired type, select Open with... / Other, pick the application you want (Affinity Photo) out of the list, and check the Always Open With checkbox. When I do this, I get an error dialog. This doesn't make sense. The image file is not an application from a developer, and Affinity Photo didn't create the file today, my camera created it some time ago. After this failure, the default application for opening Canon Raw files remains Gimp. Is this a bug? Is it a bug in Affinity photo? Is there a workaround that anyone knows of? MacOS High Sierra Version 10.13.3 Mid 2011 iMac Affinity Photo 1.6.6

    Frozen during Save

    I have gone to save the file I was working on and the app has become unresponsive with the save dialog box open and also unresponsive. It appears to have hung in the save process and I can't back out of it or do anything else in app. I haven't force quit yet as I didn't want to lose what I was working on. The cursor is flashing in the file name entry field, the save button is greyed out now and is unresponsive. I can toggle in and out of full screen, I can access the top bar menus for Affinity Designer, but most options are greyed out. I'm on both the latest OS and latest Affinity software as of right now and I'm running on a 2017 MBP 15" so it shouldn't be that.... Any ideas for a way I might be able to rectify this without losing the work?

    Full screen not saved

    Hey everyone! Both Photo (1.6.6) and Designer (1.6.0) don't start in full screen on macOS 10.13.2, even though they have been quit in full screen mode before. In El Capitan, both applications would remember this state. Best wishes, Shu
  21. Hi I am using Affinity Photo on my mac, windows and iPad. I also use iCloud, and in my documents folder there is an Affinity Photo folder. How can I set Affinity on iPad to save my projects there so I can share them across devices?
  22. Hi I just switched from a Mac to a Windows laptop and I had bought Affinity Photo on the Mac App Store last year. How can I switch to the Windows version?
  23. 1. Create new Document. Print A4. 2. Create new text box with width 40 mm 3. Download, install Nyala font from ... (edit: removed the link, as source might be unlicensed ) 4. Set font of box to Nyala, 12pt 5. Paste "I guess, we decided that a mystery is more intriguing" 6. Crash. You can also just start typing. It will crash on linebreak. Workaround for me: Use another font. It might be a problem with the font itself but I thought I rather report. Mac 10.13.3 Beta (17D29a) Affinity Designer 1.6.0
  24. I have been working on an educational poster, on and off over a few months time. Until now, I had kept it at one size (11" x 17"), and have it looking fairly nice in that size: After printing some test copies, it became clear that this was going to be way too small for what we are trying to do. So I tried to scale it up to 20" x 30", and it quickly got ugly fast: It does not matter if I try to scale the whole artboard up or create a new, larger artboard and paste everything into it, I get the same hideous results. I have been messing with this for a week now, trying different things like adding or removing constraints, and it seems like I am only digging myself into a deeper hole. In some cases, when I try to remove constraints, the objects jump clear off the artboard and/or resize themselves to crazy proportions. Every element in this poster is a vector element that I created myself, and there are no imported images. It is apparent that I am doing something wrong, and it probably has something to do with constraints. Can anyone offer suggestions on how I can get myself out of this pickle? I am willing to share the project file if need be.
  25. Since a recent update (before the current one) I notice that Affinity Photo freezes when trying to open a few images. Specifically - opening them from Finder by selecting about 6 PNGs or JPEGs and right clicking to Open With .. Affinity Photo. AP starts but then freezes. Nothing will kill it except a Force Quit. Opening the App and then loading the images seems to work better. I have the latest MacOS and Photo from the App Store. I don't have pressure on my RAM (16GB no major apps open, only a browser with 2 or 3 tabs).
