  1. Howdy! As the title suggests, is it possible to have the textual manual that is available from within the app as a standalone file (PDF, HTML, EPUB, etc.)? It isn't very comfortable to switch back and forth between the manual and the app Thanks!
  2. Affinity Online Help Hello all, we're happy to be able to offer you an online version of the in-app help! Access Photo & Designer Help here: https://affinity.help Here are some of the additional features we're able to implement as a result of having proper browser support: Dynamic language switching: The help will determine your language and (if it's available) serve you a localised copy of the help. If you prefer to read in another language, however, you'll find a combo box at the bottom left which will enable you to change languages - and stay on the page you're currently reading. Print: Sounds simple, but with full browser support we can now implement printing of the topic pages. The print icon in the bottom left will give you a nicely formatted printout of the current topic. Share: Clicking the clipboard icon will copy the current topic's URL to your clipboard, which means you can easily point other people towards topics that may help them. Responsive: The help was responsive anyway, including off-canvas menu functionality so you could collapse the window and still read a topic, but this is taken further in this version of the help. The help is formatted nicely and usable even on a 4" iPhone SE screen. With this online version you'll be able to print out topics and view them on your tablets/phones, which are two of the most common requests when it comes to help feedback. This is currently no search functionality - we are aware it would be useful and are considering possible solutions. As always, if you have any feedback or find any issues with this online version, please let us know! Hope you find it useful.
  3. Feature request. I notice with the Table tool, Publisher can sort things in ascending or descending order, but doesn't give you the option to manually click and drag rows to reorder them. This is a handy feature in Adobe InDesign that I would love to see in Publisher as well. Currently, it appears the only way to manually change the order after the text is placed is to add extra rows, then copy and paste the text into the correct order.
  4. I have produced a pdf version of the Affinity Photo manual that you can read without starting the program. It can be interesting to put it on your phone or tablet to read when you have some time to spare. Since the file is too big to upload here, I have put it on Dropbox for you to download. It is current for the last version of Affinity Photo. Comments welcomed. Here is the link: https://dropbox.com/s/d3uxmmypdx9ruzw/Affinity%20Photo%20Manual.pdf?dl=0

    Affinity Photo Workbook

    Hi All, As announced in a recent blog post we have launched the Affinity Photo Workbook to accompany the desktop versions of Affinity Photo Affinity Photo Workbook Launch Announcement November 23, 2017 We are proud to announce the launch of the official Affinity Photo Workbook, our first ever guide to Affinity Photo on macOS and Windows. Painstakingly put together over many months, the long-awaited Workbook teaches you everything there is to know about Affinity Photo and mastering its powerful tools and capabilities. . This is a big book - 488 pages, in hardback - and it includes fantastic projects created by some top photographers, as well as a comprehensive reference to all our tools and panels, and a set of core skills tutorials. For those who are interested, there is a further blog post describing the creation process Behind the Scenes: Creating the Affinity Photo Workbook November 27, 2017 As we released our glossy full-colour Affinity Photo Workbook last week, we thought you might like to take a look into how it was created… You can find more information about it here. Usual price is $49.99 / £37.99 (+ shipping and handling). It's available in English and German. Hope you like it!
  6. Hi All, For a number of months now behind the scenes we have been producing a workbook for Affinity Designer, and I'm pleased to let you know it is available from today! This is a big book - 448 pages, in hardback - and it includes fantastic projects created by some top designers, as well as a comprehensive reference to all our tools and panels, and a set of core skills tutorials. You can find more information about it here. Usual price is $49.99 / £37.99, but we are running a 20% discount for the launch making it only $39.99 / £29.99 (+ shipping and handling). It's worth pointing out that right now the book is only available in English but we do plan to do a German version which should be available towards the end of the year. Hope you like it! Thanks, Ash

    Manual

    Hi could someone direct me to an instruction book,manual, or ipad designer for dummies cheers Dave Wallace
  8. hi there, i know there are lots of tutorials explaining AD for the ipad but there are still functions that i can not figure out because i have not found any detailed info about them, for instance the contextual options when an object is selected and you tick the move tool: About Centre? also: icons with a lock inside, or an eye, you can toggle these on and off but what is their goal? a detailed manual with all the AD functions would help but i have not found it yet, anybode else?
  9. Hi there, first of all I want to express my gratitude for the countless video tutorials you provide. However, I miss some structured how-to manual, such as the Workbook for Designer. Can anybody recommend an Affinity Photo workbook? many thanks

    Spanish Manual Affinity Photo

    Hi. I have made a Spanish manual of Affinity Photo based on the help of the software. I hope it helps. Greetings. Affinity Photo Spanish Manual.pdf
  11. Greetings, Excuse my ignorance, but is there a way to search for keywords in the online manual here instead of having to go thru everything to find something? https://affinity.help/designer/en-US.lproj/index.html

    Book

    Are there plans to publish a book for PC users?
  13. 1. On the desktop version of the app in order to draw a straight line with the brush tool you can click to start the point, then shift click and it will connect those two points. Thus drawing a straight line between those two points. I cannot for the LIFE of me figure out how to do this on the iPad???? This is a MAJOR part of my editing workflow. I just want to draw a straight line but there are no modifier keys on iPad... (BTW I hate the pen tool. PLEASE don't tell me I have to use it to draw a straight line with it and then apply a stroke.) 2. Is there a side by side list of where the tools on the desktop version have been moved to in the iPad version? i.e. The quick mask is now located under the "blah blah" on the iPad app... ?? If there is a pdf manual that would be AMAZING because I am SO lost. I can't get any work done because I can't figure out where a lot of my desktop tools have been moved. Not having hot keys/modifier keys is killing me. 3. Suggestion for the app - Put a little square somewhere in the bottom corner that acts like a modifier key (shift, control etc..) on the iPad version. Procreate has a little square you can put your finger over and it acts as a modifier key so you can sample colors with your apple pencil. It's worked seamlessly with my workflow and I love it.
  14. In the transform the edges are are not working when clicking the anchors. The numbers are not right. I try to click on a graphic and the select the right side and the X number shows up but when I click the second graphic and select the left side, the X numbers doesn't change correctly. I'm trying to align the numbers perfectly on the X line, the Y line seems to be okay
  15. Hello fellow forumers, Is there a user guide or manual for Affinity at the moment? Whilst I understand that: It's important you explore on your own, that way any bugs have a slightly higher chance of being found, and; This is in Beta, and may not be fully complete/functions can change/the project could be scrapped (although I hope not); I would absolutely love some kind of link to a reference guide. I mostly work in a convenience store, and like reading up on things during my breaks to then come home to actually try them. I am most able to maximise my time in this way. I have looked & looked but couldn't find anything of the sort. Is there such a thing at this point in time? Or will this become a feature before the program gets its launch? I remain, iPrune

    Manual for affinity photo?

    Im looking for a manual for Affinity Photo but can't seem to locate one. Is there one and if so where can I download?
  17. Downloadable manual pdf to study this program also on my iPad ? The online help is useful but i am not always on my mac!
  18. Hello! I love this product but I am very new to photo editing and even with this forum and the smattering of mostly very short "How To" videos online, there is very little documentation to get up to speed on how to effectively use this wonderful software. I am sure this has been asked a bunch of times but I can't seem to find the thread. Is there going to be a comprehensive manual or guide on how to use this software and get the most out of it at some point? It took me several hours to teach myself how to find and use the elliptical tool to edit eyes and other small bits in a photograph and the learning curve is pretty steep for those new to the adventure of photo editing. Even a third party manual would be a welcome addition. Thanks to anyone who can offer a clue on this. The software has been out for a while now and I think its time for a proper instruction book. Tom
  19. I am a pro running a one-man department working 50 hour weeks with a staggering backlog of work. I don't have time to play with the app trying to guess what things do and how they work. If I have to spend fifteen minutes poking around just to find an eyedropper tool (or equivalent) that is fifteen minutes I can't get back. I've owned Designer from the get-go. Many times I've fired it up, messed around with it and stumbled on all sorts of intuitive ways to do things I don't want to do (and in a totally over-the-top fashion), but in the end, I quit and go back to Photoshop so that I can get work done. The long and the short - six video tutorials and a busy forum is a less than ideal way to get up and running. Now that the app has won its award and customers are buying, perhaps you could take the time to provide formal documentation. Speaking from 20 years of experience in marketing departments, the one thing you don't want to do is make a ton of sales, have customers say it looks cool but they can figure it out, and then they tell everyone that the app is confusing and hard to figure out. It will blow up in your face. Speaking from 15 years of experience as a paid software reviewer, the same goes: It looks great. It is very powerful. It is extremely affordable. It takes a ton of messing around it can be mastered. Consumers and prosumers will enjoy spending the time to figure it out. Professionals will need to volunteer quite a few unpaid hours before switching. In terms of the app itself, I would award five stars but in terms of being able to get up to speed in any reasonable amount of time, take away two stars.
  20. I do know that there is another thread about the manuals and covering the html.index link into Calibre, but does anyone have any idea on how to adjust the settings for a perfect pdf fit? Ive tried adjusting the setting for 2 days now and still comes out looking distorted and what not. This is what I'm trying to achieve....... and this is mine...... Thanks in advance!
  21. Following the instructions of a video tutorial, the QUICK MASK selection failed. I would like to know the conditions under which quick mask will perform as illustrated. Under conditions I understand: image format, any other parameters that are essential for the operation to function.
  22. Hi, I am really interested with Affinity Designer. If I want to write, publish, and sell a tutorial e-book for Affinity Designer, could you please elaborate about any issue regarding legal, copyright, and/or royalties regarding this? Regards, Catur
  23. @matt, @andy, your reply in https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/560-selection-marqu%C3%A9-tools-constrain-aspect-ratio-and-slow-speed/&p=2336 does irritate me. I don't see any tool called "select" besides a various marque tools in pixel mode – whereas a beta mail mentioned "Select tool ... constrain aspect ratio" and matt asked/replied "I assume" concerning my initial question. Just in case Affinity has more than the the rich bunch of Marque Tools of pixel mode ("persona"? you might want to consider to define/name them accordingly in the later manual & online help. (compare 2 screenshots attached: "marque", "selection") (i'll check in next beta: marque: constrain aspect ratio – and let you know here)
