  1. For some reason by default PSD's are associating with publisher on my mac and not photo. Even using open with other and the "always use checkbox" doesn't change anything. It's not a massive issue, just seems quirky, but don't know if this an OS level issue or an app level issue?
  2. 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 10.9-11.2 | 1.9.2.1 | Affinity Photo | MacOS 10.9-11.2 | 1.9.2.228 | Affinity Publisher | MacOS 10.9-11.2 | n/a | 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.
  3. Hi there, is there a way to increase the thumbnail size in the .afphoto file so one can judge his documents with the macOS preview (hitting the space bar)? Natively it seems to be in a size of something around 342x512. PSD documents in comparison seem to include larger thumbnails you can "zoom" in. Sincerely, me
  4. hello! I am unable to download the latest update on the mac app store – the circle animates forever, nothing happens.

  6. I was drawing a commission on Affinity Designer (running MacOS Big Sur 11.2.1) when the eraser tool started only working partially, it was transparent now. I fiddled about with settings and checked some forums to no avail. This is when I decided to get a photo as evidence of the problem. The photo shows several lines in 3 different brushes, the first I left alone, the second I went over with the eraser one and the third I went over twice. It was on the second trial of the pen brush my eraser magically started working after no change on my part, and to illustrate this I erased the top part of all the lines. Bearing in mind this lasted about 20 minutes and fixed itself on it's own I can only assume it was a bug and to report it. The opacity and flow were both at 100% the whole time and I don't believe I've ever changed that, and opacity under the colour wheel was kept at 100%.
  7. (NOTE: This thread was originally posted in this Announcement thread, but it was split off by a moderator when replies to it turned into it's own topic) Thanks in advance for the fixes! At this time i'm writing the updates are still not available in the MAS, but the Publisher from the Affinity Store was updated without problems this morning! Keep them coming!

  10. As far as I recall, files created or modified or exported by Affinity software do not appear in the list of recent files in Mac OS Finder. Please see screenshot. After multiple OS and Serif upgrades and different computers, the problem persists, so I assume it is a Bug / Feature Request. Please fix or tell me why it's not working on my computers.

  12. Summary Affinity Designer, as of 1.9, produces SVG exports where at least one simple, hollow shape (donut) is unusable in Xcode or subsequently on iOS Impact The problem effectively prevents the use of Affinity Designer by many developers working on the creation of svg assets for the Apple platforms. Similar issues perhaps for Glowforge users, see https://community.glowforge.com/t/bug-svg-fill-rule-fix/20413 Setup macOS 11.2.1 (20D74) Intel Affinity Designer 1.9.0 on Xcode 12.4 with iOS target 14.0 To reproduce New document, Presets -> Devices -> iPad Mini Use Donut tool to create Donut (screenshot "ad donut.png") Export entire document as SVG (going via Export Persona and slices doesn't make any difference), (e.g. "xcodeProblem.svg") Open an Xcode project and navigate to an Assets.xcassets Drag SVG file exported in 3 into the project's Assets.xcassets Observe that Xcode renders the Donut incorrectly as a solid circle (screenshot "xcode ad broken.png") Workaround 1 Manually edit the exported SVG file in coding editor such as Vim, Emacs, VSCode Find the Donut's path element. Add a "style="fill-rule:evenodd" attribute to the Donut's path (or if there's an existing one amend it to include the "fill-rule:evenodd" value. Save the file (e.g. "xcodeProblem tweaked style.svg") File works okay in Xcode, i.e. has empty middle (screenshot "xcode showing broken and both workarounds.png") Workaround 2 Manually construct the Donut from two Ellipses, the inner of which is drawn with the opposit rotation. Draw outer ellipse Draw an inner ellipse NB: manually mirror the inner ellipse so that its drawing direction is in the opposite direction to the outer. Align inner with outer Select both and XOR differentially union together to create singe curves, donut. Export as SVG and file works okay in Xcode (e.g. "xcodeProblem xor'd different rotations.png") File works okay in Xcode, i.e. has empty middle (screenshot "xcode showing broken and both workarounds.png") Tips on how to workaround, were picked up from the Glowforge forum here https://community.glowforge.com/t/bug-svg-fill-rule-fix/20413 where they are encountering a similar issue. Misc Likely to have similar issues with other hollow shapes. Omnigraffle screws this up as well. Inkscape and Sketch gets it right. The SVG renders just fine in Firefox, Safari, preview etc, just within Xcode and on iOS xcodeProblem.svg xcodeProblem tweaked style.svg xcodeProblem xor'd different rotations.svg
  13. Hello, I have encountered with several different small/tiny icons: -Eyedropper in toolbar -Switch color (in all places) -Change color to translucent (in all places) MacOS 10.15.5 (19F101) Affinity Photo 1.9.0 Note, as I understand, Eyedropper is fixed in beta, not sure how it is about the other icons.

  17. 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.
  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. Good day to you! I wonder if in Publisher there's not complicated way to put the pictures inside the text. What I have now is blank white canvas with three image place holders and art text above them. What I want is to "inverse" so the pictures were visible only within the text, so the rest of the canvas remain white. Thanks in advance!
  20. Today I wanted to make some stickers for routine use — I got special pre-cut Lomond self-adhensive paper for that. So, I created blank A4 and used columns and guides to mark cut line for every sticker. I was not intended to make different variants, so I made guides for the page. After I did the first try I realised that I want to try different designs, for what decided to create the second page — and guess what? Right, no guides because I should have use Master page for that. So, I decided to make things right and repeated guides and grid for the master page. But when I had finished I saw some difference: guides and grid did not look the same for master page and single page! With taking in consideration all above, I have two questions: 1) Why is there a such difference? 2) Is there any fast way to copy grid and guides settings from single page to a master one? Thanks!
  21. Good day to you. Usually I use Publisher for creating "presentations" rather than prints, so before I used Keynote a lot. And there is pretty useful thing called: "Advance image fill" where I could take any image and turn it into pattern. I tried to find something similar in Publisher but failed. Any thoughts how can I replace this function?
  22. Good day to you! I have faced a strange bug: I can't switch language (I use English and Russian) while editing text field, but can if I stop editing it. So, I create text field and start typing text and when I want to switch it — I got macos error sound and nothing is happening. Then I click outside text field and try to switch language once again — and it works! I think that began after I installed additional Russian language dictionaries from https://github.com/LibreOffice/dictionaries, but I'n not 100% sure. I use Publisher 1.8.6 and MacOS Big Sur.
  23. Hi, Maybe it's related to my previous question about the Fields being greyed out, I can't align object to "Selection" only to Spread. Why is that? Thanks a lot for any help and advise.
  24. Good day to you! Is there a possibility for manual two-sided printing in Publisher for MacOS when the printer doesn't support automatic two-sided printing? Thanks in advance!
  25. When exporting to a PDF I get the error "An error has occurred while exporting to:/Users/kaz/Desktop/Day and Hour.pdf. It doesn't matter where I try to save it I get the same error with the corresponding directory info. All other file export types work correctly. Computer/OS information in images.
