  1. I am using a 27" display 1920 x 1080 full screen. The Publisher displays well except for content entered into the text frames. The text is not anti-aliased and is barely readable. Is there a registry entry that needs to be made to correct?
  2. I am well aware that I can set Margins when I created a new document and then change Margins after the fact by digging down into the Master page "Spread Properties." But is there a good reason why there is no conveniently accessible "Margins" command in the Document menu? That menu would be the most logical and intuitive place to find it. InDesign has "Margins and Columns..." in their Layout men, so anyone can easily find it without brainstorming or reading a manual, and I would argue a menu command is faster to access than (1) finding the Master, (2) right-clicking on the Master, (3) and then Choosing "Spread Properties." Thanks.
  3. Hi, The publisher is an amazing program. I just made the first project. Working on tables is a fairy tale. So far, I've noticed one problem. The margins on the master page set in the whole document, after reopening, reset to the default settings. Only on pages, the Master page remains unchanged.
  4. This is a general issue on the three apps from Affinity, maybe not a bug but a "not a feature" but is a nasty issue. When you change a setting in a pane, on most cases, you can't use tab key to go to next field. Yes, it works good on the color mixer, but don't work in almost any other panel. You change a field, and the next tab is interpreted as a regular tab instead of going to the next field. That means than most of the time I end with the studios hidden because tab hide it instead of going to next field. Is the only set of apps I know that doesn't let you navigate fields using tab key and forcing to make a click in each field that you need to modify. I don't know why, because the color mixer works well, so it is clear that is feasible feature. Only other exception is in dialogs, that works because you are on a window and can't go anywhere until you close it.
  5. Hi, I'm facing an issue with Affinity Designer and Photo. Both of them showing a slightly blue hue to the images. Can someone help?. Just noticed today, never faced anything as such before. Thanks in advance, Krishnakumar
  6. Greetings! I am teaching myself how to use Affinity Photo iPad. I am trying to resize my graphic but I can not see on the canvas the true size of my artboard even if I use a border. I am trying to design a poster size document 18"x24" (46x61 cm). I also tried to change the color of the canvas but could not figure out how to do that as well. Any help or videos to assist would be helpful. Thanks!
  7. Will it possible to change default Colour Profiles, depending on different language of interface selected? At the moment default settings are set U.S. Web Coated (SWOP) which is OK in US, but everywhere else other standards are used. For European languages (including English UK) Coated FOGRA39 should be set as default for printing, it's also ISO standard. I think, it would be nice when selecting French, German or English UK interface language, default Colour profile for new documents will automatically change to the correct one. Adobe software has a similar European set of settings for print and web. It's a minor thing, but I hope developers will look into it.
  8. Can you please add the functionality to remember the last "area" settings used on the export panel? 3/4 of the time I'm going to be using the "selection without background" setting, and it's a pain to have to select that option each time I export something new. See image below for more context:
  9. more specific context menu entries for each tools and an option to customize the context menu in settings.
  10. Hi! I'm new on forums and on the wonderful Affinity universe. I have Affinity Designer on my new iPad and I can't find how to get back to the default brush. I drew with it from the beginning and now I tried some others brush and I can't find it!! Some help, please?

    Grid settings

    Hello lovely ones! I am curious if I have missed a button and/or an entry in the manual which points me to some grid settings? I wanted to set up an isometric grid. But I couldn't find anything. [insert sad face here]
  12. Hey there, I always forget to check the "Save History File with Document" after creating a new one. I understand, that not everybody wants to save the history by default, because it would make a lot of files a lot larger (I guess so?). But for others it would be nice to have a Checkbox in the (User-)Settings to get the history saved with the document by default when saving a document. Perhaps it would even be possible, to have a "per document"-exception-setting. Greetings, Johannes
  13. Hi I am trying to use the adjustments in affinity photo for Windows 1.6 desktop. When I click on the adjustments I seem to get 3 options rather than the panel with the adjustments. For example when I click HSL adjustment I get default, desaturate and invert hue, but not the panel with the sliders. It is the same with Levels-instead of the sliders for levels I get default, darken or lighten. I can't see where to alter this setting. Any help much appreciated. Thanks in advance
  14. If I remember correctly Affinity used to recover files after crash (not sure it it were Designer or Photo). But lately I am noticing that when I re open the program after a crash - nothing happens - it doesn't give any option to recover files (on Photo). Is there any settings for that?
  15. Hey guys, I recently got Affinity Designer and I really love it. I tested it out and tried a couple of things out. I want to export a picture with an Isometric grid so in the final result I can see the whole grid in the picture. Are there any settings which can enable grid view in the final result? Thanks for fast reply
  16. Being very new, I'm using a number of tutorials to assist my learning. In many such, in both AP and AD, when they move their cursor along either the horizontal or vertical edge of the page, the center lines of the page pop-up, usually in green lines. Mine is not doing that. I've added a pixel layer, and doesn't matter if I'm using the pen tool, brush tools, or gradient tool, as I pass along the edges it still does indicate center lines. Where is the setting for turning this one?? Here is the URL of a tutorial that describes it early on:
  17. So there's a setting in Photoshop called transfer that I use religiously. Is there a setting in Affinity (or is a setting being planned in a future update) that I can use that would produce something similar?? I found another thread about this but I'm looking for more recent answers.... I tried setting "flow" to be affected by pen pressure, but the result is too different from what I'm looking for. I'd also be okay with a Photoshop plugin of... some sort, that might allow me to do something similar... I'm just so desperate for Affinity Photo to replace Photoshop for me. I refuse to pay monthly for something I wouldn't use monthly! Anything helps
  18. Is it an idea to add a button or a checkbox that remembers the exportsettings. I will give an example. My original document is 1200x800 pixels. When i do an export to, let's say 300 pixels. Then i have to change the settings with every export to the desired 300 pixels. If i could 'freeze' the setting, then i would make a no errors on export. I would love it. So my original material is due no harm, but my exports are all te same with the frozen settings. If i uncheck it. Then the situation is normal. I use it to make a order of more frames with litle changes. And know i have to change the export settin every time. Perhaps more people would like it. Thanks.
  19. EDIT: The issues have been updated Hello everyone! When importing .psd files from Procreate, the layer blend settings will not be imported into Affinity Photo. Is this to be expected? Is this a limitation of Procreate's .psd export? Is this an issue with Affinity Photo? I am not using anything fancy. Just some color and some light layers. Best wishes, Shu Software used: Affinity Photo 1.5.1, Affinity Designer 1.5.1, OSX 11.6 Procreate 3.2
  20. Today I learned that pasting elements between Designer documents with different resolution results on different object size. This is a normal behavior on bitmap software, like Photo or Photoshop, because they work with pure pixels and must adapt to the number of pixels the pasted image has upon the resolution, but is a complete hassle on vector apps like Designer, where the key is that you usually design on physical objet size, independently of resolution. This is specially hard when you are working with exact measures, like packaging or any technical illustration. I suggest three possible solutions A: Document or application setting to allow users to select their preference on copy pasting. B: Let the app auto select the pasting behavior based on the measure unit for the documents. (Preference to resolution if pixels unit, or preference to real size if a measure unit is selected) C: Special paste command for "paste preserving size" Hope I'm not the only one finding this important on his workflow. cheers!
  21. Sometimes it's the little things that show some real world thought went into software. Here are some of the nice OEM items I've found and some things that I've managed to work around to make it all fit my personal comfort zone a little better. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- * Set the Mouse Wheel to expand or shrink your image on screen. So easy and feels so natural. Find it in EDIT - PREFERENCES - TOOLS - "use mouse wheel to zoom" ......Click it. * Dividing lines for the left side Tools Panel allow arranging the tools into logical categories, making them easier to find. The VIEW - CUSTOMIZE TOOLS opens up all of the available tools. Way down at bottom, the very last entry is an almost invisible separator bar. Drag and drop them liberally onto the Tool Panel and then add and sort all of your commonly used tools between, them as desired. * While you're in the customize tools menu...... if you divide the tool panel into 2 or more columns and you get the added bonus of a second "foreground /background color" selector location at the bottom left side of the screen. I'm currently using 4 columns here. It lets me group my tools laterally for much easier visual location. All my selection tools are now side by side, in two rows, while all of my repair tools are all in two rows, below a separator bar. Rinse and repeat for all the different tool categories. * The Library Panel felt a bit crowded to me (OK.... maybe I'm a little OCD). I created several empty categories named "------------------------------" and then I moved them around so they nestled nicely between the real categories, functioning as separators. Less crowding and they give me immediate and easy to see visual cues as to where my macros end and the next category begins. * When creating a macro, there are currently no provisions for making annotations normally used to share with other users any required values or settings. When I'm working, I label my Layers with any needed information. Something like: "Super Focusing Layer - 50% OPACITY (adjustable) Blend = OVERLAY" You can't see all of that on the layer panel tab, but hover the mouse over a layer and its all right there for you. It also adds the information to the macro recording, should you want to explore exactly how things went down. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I'll be making some suggestions for the Macro tools, in the near future. It already works "OK" but a couple of small functionality changes could make it far more user frendly. Steve
  22. Hi, since i have updated my Windows 10 and Affinity Photo/Designer Software, the colours in both Softwares are wrong, White (255,255,255) appears yellow in Affinity, but when I export it, it's pure White again. I really can not work with this issue, due to the fact that no colour Matches to my designs. I attached some pics from the colour settings and one Artboard, to help you understand my Problem. :-/ Thanks in advance Felix
  23. In your Light UI video you demonstrate how to adjust the UI appearance. Under windows it does not seem to work correctly. Under windows I can switch between light and dark UI style and the UI gamma slider seems to work. The background and artboard background grey level sliders do not show any effects under windows. The tool icons are not adjusted according style. With light UI I see the same icons with black background as used with the dark UI style. E.g., the cutting tool is just a dark square with light UI style. The front UI size adjustment (default / large) is missing alltogether under windows. Can I somehow activate the backgroud grey level sliders and adjust the tool icons for the light UI style?
  24. Hey guys. today i created my own brushes and everything worked fine. So i exported them to send them to a friend. After i restarted Affinity Photo, they changed completly my Settings. I´ve got to Images for you that shows how they changed. The first picture shows my brush settings. The second picture shows the Brushes after i restartet Affinity Photo. I think there is a Bug that have to be fixed.
  25. Affinity Photo crashes when i am trying to enter the preferences. How can I fix that?
