  1. 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.
  2. Since updating to the subject release the program crashes in resource manager. This has happened with two documents. Is this a known problem? All other functions seem to be working just fine. Tom Elliott
  3. HI, I have an extensive publication in which some graphics are repeated many times. It would be nice if the selected graphic highlights the group in the resources. It is not a problem to find if we have several links. However, when there are myriad of them, it takes a while. Please add highlighting for multiple resources.
  4. Hello, Hi, Moin! I described my issues regarding the PDF format but they may apply to all other formats and also Images. (In example like improved the linking function etc.) I encountered following bugs: Pdf Bugs Fonts which are used and embedded in the PDF but not installed on the System are not displayed. No matter if PDF is embedded or linked. Preflight notices it but a button only links to the font manager wich shows everything is fine (since it only shows font issues in the afpublisher file). Using the embedded font/font Letters like a PDF reader may be a solution. Linked PDF cant be edited anymore like in the usual way of double clicking it. PDFs should be editable if embedded or linked. When a font is not installed and only embedded in the PDF, Replacing the fonts, creating vector paths from the embedded font, or using the embedded font/font letters may be a solution to continue the workflow anyway. Not a Bug but: Please make it more comfortable to relink ressources in the document. Like if the tree structure of the files and folders remains but with a change to a new location (a new drive). In example Lightroom searches for more missing files in same directory that has been used to relink another file. Sorry if some of the terms i used regarding Affinity Publisher doesnt make sense ... im not using the Affinity Suite in Englisch but in the latest Version 1.8.3
  5. After opening my Publisher program and my file (with a lot a linked pictures) I try to open the Resource Manager. But my program crashes all the time without any warning. If I open the Resource Manager in another file and after this leave it open, close this file and open my file with the pictures it takes a while, but it works and does not crash. If i put a new picture in my "Picture file" and after it open the Resource Manager, it also works. I think it a great idea to have the Resource Manager docked, so I can leave it on the screen. If it is already there, I have no problems! Thank you!
  6. Hi, in AfPub 1.8.3 and its resource manager there are sometimes broken thumbnails for some files. I unfortunately can't estimate any difference betwen files with good thumbnails and bad thumbnails. There was also some weird status for the first file (00_titulka.afphoto). Manager showed dpi -1, but it had 300. And I could not update the file using the Update button. It was still marked as Modified without changes. When I deleted this file from my AfPub book and placed it again, the probleme disapeared.
  7. In resource manager I can't easily distinguish between linked, integrated and collected resources. I think that it can be really useful to highlight what resources are neither integrated nor collected, in order to avoid accidental deletion of linked files.
  8. Hi, I found bug. I'm putting PDF in Publisher doc, and I have option to choose page which should be showed there. I'm closing Publisher file and then updating PDF file After opening Publisher file again, I can't choose page of PDF to be showed, all I can do is replace PDF So, I though maybe updating file in Resource Manager will help, but after this linked PDF is updated, but in all places where I put PDF I have 1st page I'm attaching video what is wrong (I'm saying about embedded file but I meant linked one).

  9. I did a first-time test of the make-collection feature and got quite the surprise. I made a temporary directory of the hard drive. With a small Publisher document open, I selected Document > Resource Manager, selected all image files shown there, and clicked Collect. For the destination I selected the temporary directory and then the collection was made. After checking to ensure that all files appeared in the temporary Collect directory, I removed it. At that moment Publisher announced a loss of linkage to all of the image files in the document. It appears the program had just re-linked all images to the versions that were copied to the Collect subdirectory. (Had I missed an option that specifies: only copy them — don't re-link them?) Then I had to re-link all of them manually to their original location. I'm glad it's a small document. If I had to do that in the document once it's finished, I'd be at it all day as there does not appear to be a way of doing it in a batch (which would make sense if the missing image files were all in the same directory—which, in this case, they were). Restoring the links seems to be a one-file-at-a-time operation. As far as I can tell, Publisher's online help file (the topic on making a collection from the Resource Manager) does not mention the change of linkage in this situation. Is the feature working as designed? The "gotcha" of suddenly changed linkages could be a nasty surprise indeed for the unwary with a large document containing image files residing, originally, in multiple locations.
  10. Hi you all, my feedback/request concerns links. I have files that last from years - example, portfolio - for which is essential working above all with linked files (paths, weight etc.). the position of the resource manager, which can't be a flexible panel, is very uncomfortable. see the paths - all together - for all linked files select a single image/linked file and have the possibilty to update when I link again a file, I substitute it, it "forgets" the previous settings -> if the image was rotated, the percentage of zoom and so on. I don't know why, but it is not possible to me to transform from embed to linked files, buttons aren't available. Best V
  11. I have a document with link document. Link document is renamed, then is for main document lost. This is detected when the main document is opened (perfect). I click on Resource Manager button, and open Resource Manager dialog, and Font Manager dialog - why! Icon in Resource Manager is broken. Close Font Manager and Resource Manager, and select lost linked document in Layer Panel (your icon unfortunately, it says nothing about the file being lost, so it's very difficult to find in the layer panel.). Click on Replace Document in Context Toolbar, and select correct linked file. The image is crossed out, and the linking character of the linked document disappears. Therefore, I have to select a Picture Frame in Layer Panel, and in its Context Toolbar click on Replace Image. Select correct linked file - then image is correct and icon with link symbol, but second linked (?) document must be deleted. This is the correct and expected way to update a lost linked file? Similarly, this happens when you repair it directly in Resource Manager (Replace...). Edit: Unfortunately, I do not have a new version to try, because I cannot download huge files in this problematic time.
  12. One compelling reason to provide an export of the Resource Manager list is to make a list of photographs used for the purpose of submitting them to the (U.S.) Copyright Office. Not all the photos in the linked File Folder may be used, so that folder may not be a good choice to use to create the list. Ideally, the export will go into a CSV (for use in a spreadsheet) or XLS type of format or even PDF). I'm facing that problem now and have over 800+ photos that I have to manually sift through using the Resource Manager as a basis (eyeballing the list is overwhelming).
  13. Hello! is it possible to link a text file, in such a way as it can be with images in Resource Manager? what I need is for the text to be updated (loaded from external RTF, TXT or any other text file that is periodically corrected) each time the project is opened in Publisher
  14. Most of my idml conversions are wonderful! I noticed some weird behaviour when re-opening the freshly converted file: If you have placed multi-page Illustrator-Logos within your original InDesign Doc, or multipage INDDs inside the INDD (which is also possible) Publisher gets the correct page right at the first Import. BUT: If you re-open the saved .afpub document, the .ai-page defaults to page 1.
  15. I made a graphic in afDesigner and then placed it on a afPublisher page as linked. When I double-click to edit it the changes I make are immediately synced and displayed in the Pub-document. Cool! There is no save, I can only close the edit-window. So far-so good. But, the changes are not saved back to the linked file. It's more like it is an embedded copy of the original graphic I created. But most of the time, I want to write the changes back to the original file, like I had done the modification directly in Designer, so it updates in all documents in which this graphic is placed/linked. plus: I don't know why the colours do not match in the preview - like it's RGB and not cmyk?
  16. This may not be a bug, but a limitation of the software. I am an architect and use Designer for site analysis graphics, amongst many other uses. The graphics tend to be built up using many layers, each of which has a unique bit of data. I then bring the graphic into publisher and select which layers I want to show. Two things: I have found that if I copy an placed asset and double click to edit the layers, the layer changes will affect the copy and the original. So to avoid this, I place a fresh instance of the graphic for each view. This works fine. Until... If I make a change to the original designer file, the resource manager quite helpfully tells me to update the content in the publisher file. But... every instance of the placed graphic then gets reset to the same layer settings, so I have to go through the whole report, resetting all the layer structures. Is there a way of the placed asset remembering the layer settings? If not, can I please request this as a tweak to the next iteration of Publisher? Many thanks. Loving the software.
  17. Hey there! Is there a resource and/or a font manager in Affinity Designer like the one in Affinity Publisher? If there is please tell me where to find it. If not I'd like to suggest to add them to Affinity Designer (and Affinity Photo). All the best, Chris
  18. I can manually go through my document and click 'replace' on each image to replace it with an updated version which will take (at most) a couple of seconds. However, when I update a single image using Document Resource Manager, it can take more than a minute per 'Update' click. Shouldn't it be faster to 'update' than to delete and reinsert/replace an existing image?
  19. Dear Dev-Team, can you please bring the Resource Manager from Publisher to the Photo and Designer as well? At least for the Designer it would be a nice feature not to save large images within the .afdesign file. In the case you have to work with images/source files from other sources it would make things easier to update them in the progress. Thanks.
  20. If you link to an image, the first the first underscore isn't shown in Resource Manager in the Name column. Example: Actual filename "0_Cover.tif" - Displays as "0Cover.tif" Actual filename "0_Back_Cover.tif" - Displays as 0Back_Cover.tif" Actual filename "appendix_a_header.tif" - Displays as "appendixa_header.tif"
  21. I deleted a photo that wasn't working out, and now the Resource Manager keeps alerting me that I have a missing linked item. I can't figure out how to go about getting rid of that irritating popup. The Resource Manager seems to have no option for removing the linked item, and I don't know where else to look. Is there a cache to clear or something? Please help! Thanks!
  22. In an effort to trim the size of my Publisher file and make a "pseudo package" of my project, I selected all my embedded items in Resource Manager, clicked the Make Linked button, nominated a destination folder for links when asked BUT found that while all files were then marked as linked in the Resource Manager, not all my files were copied into the nominated links destination. Why not? AND what determines which are copied and which are not. AND is there any way to make ALL embedded files copy to the nominated links destination?
  23. Having the resource manager just floating around somewhere is causing it to be in the way all the time. Having to open and close it isn't ideal either. Please make the resource manager panel dockable and embeddable as a tab in the studio area, like studio panels do. So we can arrange them within the studio panels/tabs. (If there are people really like it to be floating around as it is, they can still take it out of the studio area let it float.) I also wonder why it isn't a studio-panel and so be available in the studio menu.
  24. Are you using the latest release version? yes. 1.7.1.404 (here's how to check) Can you reproduce it?. Change any Image in my folder of Linked images, Does it happen for a new document? Don't know. No time to check. Windows 10. What happened for you . Resource Manager notifies that ALL files change, when only ONE has been updated. Provide a recipe for creating the problem. Change a File in Affinity Photo, for example. Save. Then publisher RM goes crazy. Screenshots (very handy) or a screen capture/video. Attached. Any unusual hardware. Not really, regular workstation.
  25. It feels like there's too many floating panels. Like placed images, fonts are also document resources. Just combine them into one panel with 2 tabs: 1) Placed Documents and 2) Fonts, or something to that effect, as Resources seems like too generic a term... You can rename the menu item Placed Document and Font Manager (or something better than Placed Documents) to let the user know it deals with both types of resources. Thanks for your consideration
