  1. I recently purchased Affinity Designer (both MacOS and my iPad), along with additional brush packages (Christis comix, chalkiest) and when I import the brushes on either version, they do not show up in the brushes window. However, when I import the fineliner brush set, it works fine. Any suggestions? Thanks. /pkyancey
  2. Hello, I just downloaded the full suite of Affinity software on my Mac today after reading all the reviews, and I really like what I see. There is a major problem however, which I encountered in Photoshop before, and now Affinity as well - and that is the support for proper unicode typing in Burmese and other sino-tibetan languages. As it stands right now, Photoshop and Affinity both are displaying Myanmar (Burmese) language in a literal progression, instead of how unicode is supposed to be displayed. I don't know if I can explain this very well for non burmese speakers, but I will try: For example: If I want to write the word "cat" (Jaung) in Burmese, I need to write it according to unicode typing standard, which would be ကြောင် (က+ြ+ေ+ာ+င+်). However, Affinity will not display that correctly. So if I want to type it in affinity, I have to type ေြကာင် (ေ+ြ+က+ာ+င+်), which is completely senseless, and doesn't meet the new unicode standard, making Affinity completely unusable for a number of languages that I speak and design in. You might be wondering, "well, why not just change the order you type in?" Glad you asked. Why? Well, because it's not that simple. Beings that Burmese unicode is dynamic (certain characters change size or shift right, left, up, or down automatically depending on proper typed order, which as I just tested it, due to Affinity not supporting the proper typing order, makes the text unreadable as it is not shifting properly due to that incorrect typing order) it requires all software to fully support the Unicode table and typing order. I have yet to test some other languages that I daily use, but I'm afraid it will be the same problem. So is there some way to fix this? Or am I out in the cold having spent $120 on software I can't use for 90% of my projects? Would you guys be able to update it and make it work properly for non English languages? Just to clarify, in case you can not see the above characters rendered properly on your device, this is the unicode order for the word "cat" in Burmese (Jaung) as it should be typed: U+1000U+103CU+1031U+102CU+1004U+103A The above however does not display properly in Affinity. To display semi-properly I have to use the below order, which is incorrect and still has a a major error: U+1031U+103CU+1000U+102CU+1004U+103A The above is not entirely correct, as ြ (Ya Pínt) displays only half the width of က (Ka gyi) when it should display the full width. This is a serious issue, as it makes this software completely unusable for 80+ million people. So please do fix this asap so this app can be used properly. If there is some way I can contribute to the devs any linguistic info I'm also happy to do that if needed, but this needs to be fixed quick. I am attaching a screenshot below which will hopefully help clear up my poor explanation. Looking forward to a solution.
  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 10.9-11.0 | 1.9.0.10 | Affinity Photo | MacOS 10.9-11.0 | 1.9.0.206 | Affinity Publisher | MacOS 10.9-11.0 | 1.9.0.857 | 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. We are pleased to announce updates for the MacOS release of all of the Affinity Suite, to version 1.8.6 These updates make our applications fully compatible with Big Sur and optimised for the Apple M1 chipset (Apple silicon). This new support for Big Sur 11.0 comes in ADDITION to our existing support for macOS 10.9 to 10.14, and so this 1.8.6 release works on all of them, and is suitable for all our macOS customers. New Press Release on what Big Sur and Apple M1 hardware mean for the Affinity Suite Changes in this build Apple just released Big Sur, its latest major macOS update. This update is something our developers have been working on for quite some time and we’re thrilled to share that our latest 1.8.6 update for the macOS versions of our apps is fully compatible with Big Sur, which means even better performance of Affinity apps on Mac. Perhaps even more exciting though is that 1.8.6 is fully optimised for Apple silicon, the new faster hardware architecture, starting with the M1 chip, as announced by Apple at a launch event on 10th November 2020. For more on Apple silicon, see this page on our website. This update is a "universal" install, built for both the existing Intel based architecture and the new Apple M1 based architecture. Whatever hardware you are running on this new release is built for optimal performance. It also comes with a new icon, to reflect Big Sur styling, and some behind the scenes tweaks focussing on performance. 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, for example "Affinity Photo" > "About"). These threads below (to the last update for each application) describe how to install these new 1.8.6 updates and the features and fixes in the earlier updates.

  5. I recently updated my Mac operating system and Affinity Designer. Since doing so, I've noticed that the selection boxes on things I click aren't in the right spot or they flicker and jump. The layers themselves move like normal, but the boxes are an issue and the software slowed way down. What should I do?
  6. We are pleased to announce an update for the MacOS release of Affinity Photo, version 1.8.4 Changes in this build The changes in Affinity Photo for MacOS 1.8.4 over the release build Affinity Photo for macOS 1.8.3 are as follows: Fixes & Improvements: Preparations to our macOS apps to ready them for the release of Big Sur later in the year Mitigate blurring when converting to / from equirectangular projection. PSD export will no longer clip layers to the page. Fixed Sigma 50-100mm F1.8 DC HSM Art lens identification. Fixed corruption with certain batch jobs when Metal compute is enabled.

Help and Localisation improvements Earlier changes and fixes in 1.8 made since 1.7 (including the new 1.8 features) are listed in some detail in this 1.8.1 update announcement and this 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 Photo > 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 Photo for macOS) can be downloaded from this link (that installer is NOT for Mac app store purchases and needs a product key).
  7. Ever since the latest update I've been experiencing a notable increase in strange, brief, intermittent glitches on my iMac monitor when quitting Affinity apps. I don't experience it much when working in the apps (sometimes when merging layers), but it's definitely most notable a few seconds after I quit the apps. It seems somehow worsened when I have a browser window open (Google Chrome, Safari, or Brave). I've also experienced some screen flickers in-app when developing RAW images in Photo, especially any format other than DNG (such as the Nikon NEF format), or when working with larger files. I'm running a dual monitor setup (iMac and a graphics drawing tablet as my second monitor), and the latest version of MacOS (Mojave Version 10.14.6). It's difficult to explain, but it looks similar to glitches experiencing with failing graphics cards, but they only flash/flicker once and then disappear until I quit the apps again, where a failed graphics card would show a permanent glitched display. I initially thought this was a graphics card issue on my side (I've dealt with that before), but after some research I found that this is a known issue between certain apps and the newer MacOS. Here's an article stating that this is is well an issue that is fairly widespread, and can be caused when running certain apps: https://pdf.wondershare.com/macos-10-14/fix-screen-flickers-on-macos-10-14.html I've tried all the steps mentioned to help eliminate the flickering (SMC reset, NVRam reset, booted in Safe Mode, and even ran First Aid on my hard drive to try and iron out any possible system bugs). I have no idea what's causing this, but it's a bit worrying. I'm scared that I'm maxing out my graphics card, or somehow putting too much strain on it when quitting the apps or something. I've even set my Display to "GPU (Basic)", the Retina Rendering to "Low Quality", and disabled "Metal Compute Acceleration" in the Affinity preferences, but it doesn't seem to be helping. I've posted in Affinity groups on Facebook and have received confirmation from a few other users/people that they are also experiencing this when using Affinity. I just want to raise awareness of this issue by posting on here, and hopefully push for a possible fix.
  8. I am having issues with paragraph styles. I expected them to work like inDesign or Word -- to click on text and apply the style, or update the style. Click on another button to erase formatting. When I place my insertion point at the beginning of the first line of a paragraph in body style, and enter delete, I expect the line to move up and close the gap from the paragraph above. But no, it acts like I hit return, and body style changes to no style. Similarly when I delete a line of bullied or numbered points I am unable to close the gap by hitting delete. I have to convert to Body, then convert again to the list. When I copy bullet points from one section and add them to another paragraph, then change the bullet points to Body, the space between paragraphs is not maintained, and it's a real hassle to get the 6pt space to work that is part of Body style. When I copy text from a Quarkxpress 2018 generated PDF, the text has huge leading, and does not conform to the style I select in body, or bulleted list. It has taken 8 hours to format a doc that should have taken 1 hour.
  9. Since the beginning when you work in full screen on any Affinity App, double clicking a file on the Finder doesn't correctly set the focus on the App. The application is indeed active but it doesn't switch to the correct screen. This is quite jarring since all other applications do this correctly. Most of the time I double clic a second time before remembering and then you can't simply hit cmd + tab since the app is indeed focused just not on the right screen. I don't understand if this is by design or an oversight since you always open files from the Application and not the Finder.
  10. We are pleased to announce an update for the MacOS release of Affinity Designer, to version 1.8.4 Changes in this build The changes in Affinity Designer for MacOS 1.8.4 (over the last release Affinity Designer macOS 1.8.3) are as follows: Fixes & Improvements: Preparations to our macOS apps to ready them for the release of Big Sur later in the year Fix for undesirable shapes being created when dragging the start/end nodes of a shape on top of each other to close the shape. Improved margin and bleed presets for documents.. Fix for EPS exporting with black bitmap areas. Fix for incorrect rendering of grids in OpenGL past certain zoom levels. Fix for poor functioning of 'Force Touch' trackpads in pressure-sensitive tools. Speculative fix for occasional lockups in Pencil Tool. Added option in preferences to re-enable the old behaviour for deleting objects (we used to previously favour empty selections). Added ability to show folders as icons in the layers panel. Added option to always show folders as “small” in the layers panel. Improved dragging behaviour in the layers panel (make it easier to drag child items around within their container without affecting parenting). PDF Import - Import now allows creation of Artistic Text if 'Group lines of Text into Text Frames' is switched off PDF import performance improvements. Document save performance improvements. Text performance improvements. Assorted small bug fixes. Fix for 'Expand Strokes' failing to consider 'velocity' as a width controller. Fix for focus issues when tabbing between text entry fields in the Colour panel with Text objects selected. Fix for operation of Command+Right-Click on an object to show the tree hierarchy of the selected node. Allow certain documents created on Windows to open correctly (if the document contained a saved reference to exporting as Windows GDI formats). Help and Localisation improvements 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 this 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 Designer > About).

  11. I just noticed that my Affinity Publisher installation is not detected on App Store. Though it is installed, it displays the price to purchase and download the app. Also on my Affinity account on the website, I only see my purchase of Affinity publisher but not my Affinity Designer and Photo purchase. How can I find my designer and photo apps purchase and licensing details? What should be done in order for the app store to detect the pexisting publisher installation?
  12. Hello, I am not sure if this was mentioned here before but I am looking for some help creating a booklet. As opposed to Affinity Photo and Affinity Designer. I am having some difficulty getting used to using Affinity Publisher. The main project I am looking to create is a comic book style booklet (ashcan/zine). The final product would be 5.5"x8.5", portrait. I would like to create a template so that I don't have to constantly keep trying to get the same result. Can someone here please help me with this. Thank you.
  13. Hello, This is the second time this has happened to me in a matter of months. I'm on a MacBook Pro running the latest version of Publisher. It has corrupted my file and whenever I launch, it shows the broken file with almost all of the pages missing, and then freezes and goes to the spinning rainbow of death. As I said, it corrupted an earlier file in the exact same way a few months ago. At present, I cannot open any files at all in the program because it keeps trying to recover the file it broke. It opens and freezes. Fixes I have tried that have not worked: rebooting renaming the file (it still finds it) duplicating the file and throwing away the original (it finds the duplicate and tries to open it) dragging the file to the desktop (it still finds it and tries to open it) I can no longer use the program to work on any of my files at all. Publisher just keeps trying to open that file and freezing. As a side note, that file represents 6 months worth of work, so I'm pretty frustrated. (I managed to find a fix back in June when it happened, but I don't remember what I did) Suggestions? Thank you.
  14. howdy :) does anyone know how to customize the keyboard commands in affinity photo? thank you in advance :) ^-^
  15. Is there a 'shift edge' or equivalent for selections/masks? If, yes, where is it ? Shift edge is something found in Photoshop. Photoshop's Shift Edge expands or contracts the mask by +/- pixels. It's available in the Refine Mask dialogue box in PhotoShop. Because it's in the Refine Mask dialogue, it means it can be experimented with at the same time as other subtle adjustments to the mask. I mostly use Shift Edge in combination with Mask feather adjustment. The amount of feather dictates the amount of shift. Shift Edge is really great for avoiding the halo effect when feathering the mask edge on levels adjustment layers. This is when you've got photos with the common problem of under-exposed foreground + over-exposed sky. How do you achieve this in Affinity Photo if there is no Shift Edge? (as I suspect might be the case)
  16. macOS Catalina 10.15.5 Affinity Designer 1.8.4 I frequently have this issue but it is difficult to reproduce - it is intermittent and inconsistent. Conditions: drag an image from Finder into an artboard in an existing project file that is open in Designer. Save the project and close Designer. Delete the image (which had been dragged) from the hard drive in Finder. Expected behaviour: The image is imported into the project and will remain there next time you open the project file. Actual behaviour (intermittent): when opening the .afdesign file saved earlier, it says resources are missing and gives you the option to open "resource manager". (see attached) If you do, it shows that image we formerly dragged in shows as "linked". We then need to obtain the original image and "replace" it using resource manager. This doesn't happen every time. You can see in my attachment "image.tif" embedded and "medium-pro-box-top.png" linked. These were imported the exact same way (by dragging from finder) but at no point am I given the option to import it as embedded.
  17. Because the sync was not done on my devices, I deleted the affinity files from iCloud. Then by reactivating everything, I was surprised to see 2 Affinity Publisher files. They are absolutely identical. If I delete a file in one folder it gets deleted in the other. This error only appears on my iMac. On my Macbook the folder does not appear duplicate. Vincent Muller
  18. running AP 1.8.4, but AP still does not recognize any lens profile for LX 100 M2. I added "Leica DMC-LX100 & compatible" to my favourites in order to quickly apply a suitable profile manually. In Develop Assistent I also set Lens Profile Default to "last used". This helps some way. I'm not sure that "Leica DMC-LX100 & compatible" yields the best possible adjustment. So what is the current state with LX100M2?
  19. MacBook Pro16 10.15.3, AFPUB 1.8.3. Document Resource folder and Documents are all on the local laptop System Drive (SSD). I have to believe that it is a real bug. It happens randomly and I cannot replicate it reliably. Scenario: Have two documents open (cover, and main document for a book). I modify the cover a bit and save it to the local system disk on the mac. I modify the main document with changed text in an existing text frame. I save that with Command/S. Then I go back to the cover and export the two pages to PDF. Then I close only the Cover document with Command/W. I think that might be the trigger for the next event - a sort of crash. So just the main document is open and I add some indexing to the changed text and press command/S to save. The progress bar appears and then, a second or so later, a critical message pops up (attached). The message does not make sense - "access to the document file was lost while performing initial loading." Why would an open document that was just saved 2 minutes ago lose access from the local system disk and why would it be performing "initial loading"? After I click "OK" to close the message, the document disappears, the progress bar is locked at max, not progressing, and AFPUB has to be Forced Quit since it stops responding. The very unusual thing is that it appears that the document was actually saved properly (short save since it was only a small edit), then AFPUB threw a fit.
  20. It's September 2020 and I am having the same issue. I exported a shape as SVG, interpreted by "Shaper" (computer mill) software as about 3/4 size - when reimported into the original file it is about 4x the size - if I open both and copy-paste the original into the SVG, the size is identical and it jumps right into place - when I open two SVG versions (both not scaled) copy-paste one into the other, they are differnt size - no idea where from. - opening SVG's, they are always measured in pixel. Could be anything, but why pixel? I cannot think of a way processing them to maintain the correct size. I hope for deliverance soon.

  21. I think I've had this issue for a while now... Objects with Multiply and edge softening (like Gaussian blur) get this annoying "halo" when exported to PDF using any CoatedFOGRA icc. This used to work. But somewhere on the way with the updates this started to appear. If exported with Generic CMYK profile all blends in nicely (see attachment). But Fogra just spoils everything. If I change the blending mode to normal, all is well. But any other Blending mode just breaks it.
  22. After upgrading to Publisher 1.8.4, every time I try to open an .idml flie for the first time, the program just disappears. It seems to be working on idml files that I have opened previously in version 1.8.3. I am using system 10.13.6 and have sent several versions of the same crash report to Apple. I have also put this topic on the Windows forum as it seems to be a recurring issue on that platform.
  23. When I try to overwrite a file that has been locked in finder, I get an error message about insuffient permissions. Reading that, I'd probably inspect the folder permission settings, but doing so I will not find the lock, which is a flag and thus another concept in the filesystem. The error message should reflect that, because file system locks an easily removed by most users, while changing file system permissions often requires an admin user. Additionally; I wish that Affinity Photo warns me on opening an image from a locked file.
  24. Does it now support geo-tagging of images?
