  1. In the Export Persona, when exporting an image for the web and you want the size as small as possible, you want to see a preview of what you will be exporting. So you can change the quality of a jpeg and see instantly what the result will be. The same when you change the number of colors in the palette of gifs and pngs. Also show the sizes in bytes of the slices you are exporting. The size is shown in the simple Export, but not in the more advanced Export Persona. Fireworks does this very well, it even has multiple previews with different export settings.

    Bleed view

    I understand that docs with artboards don't currently display bleeds. Working on non-artboard docs, the bleed functions as expected. It would be great if the bleed area would be dimmed/made translucent to a user specified percentage, or at least have a hard line to inform the user that the artwork extends into the bleed. Currently there is no way to see where the bleed area begins and the page ends. Thanks for your consideration
  3. It would be nice if you release a codec so we can preview the .afphoto files in the operating system. Maybe you can take this a step further and release this for developers so they can include it in the DAM systems. I would love if someday I can preview the .afphoto files in Capture One
  4. I would love the ability to preview in black and white (as masks) the range that is selected using the blend options, then I can load it to a selection and use it to manually blend images. This will be also useful if you make minor adjustments and would like to see in more detail the areas affected by that adjustment. I would also like to see this extended to the select menu, so we can make range selections using curves. If this feature will be implemented luminosity masks macros will be a thing of the past.
  5. Windows 10, Publisher build 174. I only found this by accident. I can imagine why, when dragging a new guide out, it might be useful to turn the Preview Mode off - if only temporarily at least - but I don't see why a simple click should do it also since clicking on a ruler doesn't actually do anything else (as far as I know, it doesn't look like it does).
  6. Hi! Is it possible or could it be made possible to toggle "show image borders"? As of now you have to select the image to show the border but for layout purposes it would be nice to skim though the document and see that everything is nicely lined up without having to select everything. Best regards. Ejnar
  7. Hi, Software: Affinity Photo Version: 1.6.11 I have discovered a bug while in the import window. It appears Affinity Photo does not give the spacebar functionality to the import window but rather 'hijacks/keeps' it as the "temporary move" hotkey. This means when I preview a file to import using the spacebar functionality, it does indeed show a preview of the file, but straight after returns the functionality back to Affinity Photo, thus you are unable to close the preview window, or go to the next image with the arrow keys. I've done a little screen capture to show you. Hopefully it makes sense. https://youtu.be/io5fSPc043c I have not yet tested the bug in Affinity Designer. Cheers, stwr
  8. Hey guys. Is there a screen mode like in InDesign? Can't seem to find something similar in the Affinity Publisher Beta. Thanks!
  9. In the spread setup pane, it would be good have a preview when setting up margins.
  10. On the PC version, there is no text-style preview as in the Mac version.
  11. I understand that the print layout is in the Print dialog because it relates to printing, and that the Layout could be different each time, but I also find it clumsy. I would like to create Layouts that I could save and use over, or use to make another Layout by just changing a few parameters. I would also like to see a more graphic interface. The print preview in this dialog is ridiculously small, and almost useless. The old Page Plus did this much better. Although I specify a Paper Size: “Letter”, the Width and Height shown in this dialog are GIGANTIC!. (see the attached) Since I already created a left margin on the page, I shouldn’t have to do it here on the Print dialog, but I must to make it work.
  12. Hi, I'm wondering why Affinity Photo and Designer are opening PDF file in different colour than I can see it on MacOS native Preview app? File is package print design I got from client in PDF format. I believe it has been made originally using Illustrator. When I open it in Designer I see extra red layer with blending mode multiply over graphic layer. Not sure what is it's purpose. Any idea what I'm dealing with? Best, Juha
  13. Does anyone know if there is a preview feature in Publisher? I'd like to see the attached document without all the lines ('Show Special Characters' doesn't work for this problem). Test Book.afpub
  14. Hi, i have built some macros. Affinity Photo is showing me a "Generating Preview" window when i start the macro. After approving the dialog box the macros fulfills the task. This takes two times the time. I dont want a preview to be generated. If it is showing unwanted results i still can go back in the history. How do i turn this feature off?
  15. Create a layer with raster data (some image or something) Go to Filters -> Color -> Halftone, preview mode starts (haven't tested with other filters but I'd imagine it's the same for all of them) Without applying the filter or closing out of the filter panel, right click on the layer and click Duplicate The duplicated (new) layer's preview (in the Layers panel) shows the filter preview instead of the 'true' image data. Hiding/Showing the layer resets it and forces it to show the actual layer contents. Layer prior to starting filter: Preview of the canvas during filter preview: Duplicated layer preview: Shows the layer preview with incorrect data alongside the canvas (the canvas is correct in this case) - remains so even after closing out (not applying) the filter panel: And finally, after unchecking visibility, the preview is reset.
  16. Begin previewing a filter (I've been playing with Halftone, start there if others don't work) on a raster layer (that presumably has other layers beneath it) During filter previewing, drop down the blending mode menu and hover over different selections in order to preview the filter with the blending mode The canvas flickers but the blending mode on the canvas doesn't reflect what the mouse is hovering over. However, clicking on the blending mode does force the canvas to reflect the selected mode - it's just the blending mode menu hover that doesn't properly render the preview on the canvas.
  17. It would be very useful to be able to see the images as they will be saved when adjusting the settings in the export dialog box. So for example if we select JPG and lower the quality to 25% you would see the image update to show the compression artifacts. I find that many times it is important to lower quality setting as much as possible but without losing quality to specific areas and it's hard to really know where to set these setting if we cannot see a real time view of the export settings. There could be a toggle switch to turn the preview on or off. This could also apply to any pixel dimension changes and other compression / export settings but even just showing the JPG compression would be nice. Cheers!
  18. I strongly miss an export preview. Especially for JPG. But also for indexed PNG and all destructive exports. Explanation: JPG is for example a lossy compression. So exporting something as JPG changes the content. So more compressing means, more changes in the image. For hat reason Photoshop has a split export preview. Pixelmators has a live realtime export preview. When you change the settings, you see instantly what you get and which file size it will have. Screen recording for example. The file size is in the upper left corner: https://vid.me/dAsu
  19. As far as I can see, the ability to preview exported images is, as yet, only a roadmap item for AD. It's one of the missing features that will mean I won't purchase the software. The AD 1.5 blurb at https://affinity.serif.com/en-gb/ui-design-software/announces that AD is "the perfect tool for UI and UX design". But without any way to preview and/or assess the quality of the output images, isn't it difficult to use AD for these purposes? Seems to me that you have to adopt the trial-and-error approach. But maybe I've misunderstood how we're expected to work. What do other users do in the absence of an export preview feature?
  20. On the selection panel opened by File/Open menu, it does not show a preview of embedded JPEG in the RAF file (FUJI RAW). It should ! Otherwise I just can guess what image I am about to open or I need to check in another program, what image relate to a specific file name.
  21. I'm noticing some nasty down-sampling when zooming out on images with thin lines. I've attached a screenshot of the zoomed out preview and a 50% close-up. I think there's room for improvement in this area.

    32-bit Preview not working

    If I create an HDR image using HDR Merger, or load a 32-bit .exr file I cannot get the 32-bit Preview pane to appear. I go to View -> Studio -> 32-bit Preview and select it, but nothing happens. If I go back to that menu there's no check mark next to it, so that confirms nothing is happening.
  23. Inside the "Refine selection" dialog when I select "Transparent" I get a preview that is slightly different from the result after applying the mask. I made some screenshots to demonstrate this behaviour: 1. Make a selection, then choose "Refine Selection": 2. Choose "Transparent" from "Preview", the legs of the subject show only a very small halo: 3. Choose output as mask and apply, now the halo has become much more visible, which is quite different from the preview: Why is there a difference between the preview and the final result? (The images were taken from "Compositing in Photoshop From Start to Finish" with Bret Malley on http://craftsy.com )
  24. Greetings forum members and mods. I'm experiencing artifacts at some, but not all, zoom levels in Affinity Photo 1.6.6 on Mac OS 10.13.3 (High Sierra). The screen capture with artifacts is at 15 percent zoom. The normal preview screen capture shows 20 percent zoom, for comparison. None of the other incremental zoom levels seem to have this problem. Just 15 percent. Does anyone else experience something similar?
  25. Just recording this bug on the Windows forum - previously reported over on https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/26933-brush-cursor-persistence/in Paolo's Mac thread. Show brush previews unchecked/Always show brush crosshair checked in User Prefs. Pixel Persona always defaults to brush preview - crosshair usually appears if round brush selected, crosshair not present if textured brush selected. Behaviour is present on both my main tower PC and my small HP laptop; have not yet been able to remove brush preview and only have crosshair displayed. Unchecking/checking both options in user prefs seems to have no impact either way. R7 Radeon GPU. Thanks!
